Welcome to Barf Bag, a daily politics roundup to help you sort through the chaotic Trumpian news cycle.

Blaze it!

Here’s all the shit we couldn’t cover today:

  • The DNC has opted to use its wildly limited resources to wage a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the Trump campaign, Wikileaks, and the Russian government, alleging that they conspired to help Trump win the presidency. ‚ÄúThis constituted an act of unprecedented treachery: the campaign of a nominee for President of the United States in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency,‚ÄĚ DNC chair Tom Perez said. [Washington Post]
  • The US Citizenship and Immigration Services changed its mission statement, opting to delete the phrase ‚Äúnation of immigrants‚ÄĚ in favor of emphasizing the importance of ‚Äúsecuring the homeland.‚ÄĚ Cool!!!!! [CNN]
  • Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo doesn‚Äôt have the votes to clear the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. This won‚Äôt necessarily stop his nomination from going through, but it‚Äôs a historic slap in the face. [The Hill]
  • Republican candidates across the U.S. are promising to prosecute women who obtain abortions. [ABC News]
  • Happy 420! Chuck Schumer has introduced legislation to decriminalize marijuana. [Washington Post]
