THREAD: In order to renew their license to fundraise in N Carolina, the NRA had to file a financial statement, which they labeled a 'draft' The figures in that document show just how far the NRA has fallen since its peak in 2016. https://t.co/wV2oxA58Sy

This WaPo investigation into the 'Afghanistan Papers' is worth your time. “We were devoid of a fundamental understanding of Afghanistan — we didn’t know what we were doing,” said Afghan war czar Gen Douglas Lute to govt interviewers in 2015. https://t.co/xkayngPKeF

My latest on the concierge medical provider One Medical: Employees say the company, valued in the billions, started putting profits over patients after IPO. They're citing shorter patient physicals, grueling working conditions, and less prep time https://t.co/68pcbCY0JV

Maria Butina (remember her?) ran for the Russian parliament as a member of Putin’s United Russia—and, despite the Kremlin’s *intense* efforts to make sure its party won almost everything, failed to get a seat. 😬 https://t.co/r83Ej8xARC

Social media is attention alcohol. It has some beneficial qualities, but it's not naturally wholesome. Many ppl use it often and love it and are basically okay. But a lot of people abuse it and develop unhealthy compulsions with it. Also, it's functionally a depressant.

Hundreds of volunteers went through videos of Jan 6 to collect info about what happened. One made a playlist of the music playing in the background "If you heard Elton John, you would know, OK, this is at 2 pm, right?" @NPR @timkmak https://t.co/8FubK9YK4M

This ⁦@timkmak⁩ story about how the FBI cracked hundreds of Jan 6 cases is fascinating, housewives volunteering to watch hours of open source tape to find people feels like something from an old war. Listen to the audio: You hear from a housewife! https://t.co/bXajf1NTvW
