In a rare rebuke of their party leader, at least six prominent Democrats have gone on the record to say House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's latest line targeting the GOP tax cuts is not an effective messaging strategy. Pelosi has repeatedly described the bonuses companies are doling out as a result of the plan as "crumbs."
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has charged Alex Van Der Zwaan with lying to FBI investigators about his interactions with Rick Gates, the Paul Manafort associate and former Trump campaign adviser who was indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller last fall.

Melania Trump hasn’t fired her longtime friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff even after the New York Times broke the news that President Trump's Inaugural Committee paid Wolkoff’s newly-established company a staggering $26 million. Why it matters: Grisham told Axios the First Lady had no involvement with the person in charge of the Inaugural Committee and "had no knowledge of how funds were spent." But, even after learning of Wolkoff's payday, the Melania Trump has kept her on as her adviser.
.@peterbakernyt says he’s not that concerned about Trump name-calling the press. “He’ll be at a rally screaming ‘CNN sucks!’ ... then he’ll come to the back of AF1 and say ‘hey everyone how you doing? Was that okay?’ ... he wants to make sure everyone is having a good time”
.@steveholland1 On interviewing Trump: “It’s a lot of fun... you’ll have 30 mins, it’ll go on for 55... he’ll press the red button and order a Diet Coke, and offer you one... people will wander in and out— like Pence... Hope Hicks is always in the room.”
McCurry: “But part of this is also us being accountable... we cannot say we are at war with the people... the president’s comments sometimes show that he doesn’t respect what that relationship is about”
@PressSec responds “it’s a 2-way Street”
.@PressSec Sarah Sanders and former Press Secretary Mike McCurry say the WH briefings have become too theatrical “The most substantial parts of the briefing are never the ones replayed on TV,” said Sanders https://t.co/HQwm5pNysh
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
