Amy Klobuchar is worried that soon-to-be AG Barr will withhold part of Mueller's report.

She met with him today and he could NOT guarantee that he will release the report in its entirety.

Also, she said that if Trump declares a national emergency, he is breaking the law by circumvetting Congress after multiple pathways forward. She expects legal challenges immediately.

NatGeo: 6 ways the border wall could disrupt the environment.

The reason to build a wall is to keep people out. Yet history is replete with examples of walls all over the globe that rarely deterred determined people from getting in. Janet Napolitano, who served as governor of Arizona and President Barack Obama’s secretary of Homeland Security, was famous for her oft-repeated declaration: “Show me a 50-foot wall, and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.” The wisdom of building a wall across the length of the U.S.-Mexico border at a time when the number of arrests of illegal border crossers is at a 45-year low is an issue for the debate over immigration law.

What follows here instead is a look at the implications of wall construction itself—beyond talk over concrete-or-slats—and the unintended consequences that erecting such a barrier could pose. (See what existing parts of the wall look like.)

“Whatever they build, it’s going to be destructive to natural habitat,” says Bob Dreher, an attorney who heads Defenders of Wildlife.

"It’s about the physical reality of what a permanent barrier will do in one of the most sensitive landscapes in North America.”

Individual-1 insisting the border is a tremendous crisis

and he has the right to declare a national
emergency if "we don't make a deal". A lot of funds will be available to him if he does.

And dealing with "these people" is difficult because they don't know how to make a deal.

Somwhere in that word salad he also said that China is easier to deal with than "the opposition party".

Then defending his behavior yesterday and calling Schumer a liar.

In the next breath, repeating the lies that a majority of Americans want the wall and terrorists and drugs are pouring in.

Says NBC reporters are most dishonest of them all, then more digs at Democrats. They don't care about crime.

Now saying a new major caravan is forming in Honduras and the only thing that will stop it is a big powerful
wall.

There's more coming out of his mouth but I'm done.

Trump is absolutely terrified of Nancy Pelosi.

A woman who has accomplished great things in her own right and possesses power in her own right.

He doesn't have a clue about how to interact with her, and he certainly won't make a deal with her or he'd be acknowledging her power.

I bet just being in the same room with her makes the palms of his little tiny hands get all sweaty.

El Paso has consistently been one of the safest cities in America.

https://www.elpasotexas.gov/~/media/files/coep/temporary/el%20paso%20one%20of%20safest%20metro%20cities%20in%20america.ashx

El Paso shares a border and commerce with Juarez, Mexico. Nothing has changed in El Paso, there is no crisis.

Facts are pesky little things to the diabolical, aren't they?

I just saw a Trump approved "border security" commercial attacking Dems on CNN.

Not sure whose money is behind it. Prepping the audience with propaganda before prime time.

Break the U.S. Government

Who better to install as prez than a megalomaniac who loves chaos and revenge and has never succeeded at anything in his life?

Make no mistake - that traitor HATES this country with a passion. He hates the laws that keep him from doing whatever he wants anytime he wants.

He's the perfect Agent of Destruction for enemies of the U.S.

It's not about a wall, never was. His orders are to break everything.
