Democrats flip Pennsylvania statehouse in final blow to GOP’s “red wave”
The Keystone State will not only enjoy a Democratic majority in Harrisburg for the first time in a decade; they’ll be led by Pennsylvania’s first-ever female Speaker, Joanna McClinton.

Trump tweeted out classified images from a spy satellite, declassified doc shows
Three years ago, then-President Trump left intelligence experts gob smacked when he tweeted a classified image showcasing a “bird’s eye view of some of the most sensitive US intelligence on Iran.” Somehow, this elicited no response from the Republicans who obsessed over Hillary’s email server for so long.
