SPOILER: James Fields, Jr. goes to prison until at least 2437 while all the thugs and criminals currently locked up in prison get an early Christmas present from Trump. Still not tired of winning
On 11 December 2437, I expect our descendants to hold a festival in honor of James Fields, in recognition of the moment the sane people in this country realized that radical politics was the only way forward. https://t.co/zoFWpamXFl

Criminal justice reform, through the First Step Act, might be the one case where the White House, particularly Jared Kushner, slowly and methodically helped shepherd legislation to passage.https://t.co/Z1DVPCJdHX

Hopefully Mitch McConnell will ask for a VOTE on Criminal Justice Reform. It is extremely popular and has strong bipartisan support. It will also help a lot of people, save taxpayer dollars, and keep our communities safe. Go for it Mitch!

Today I co-sponsored the #FirstStepAct, bipartisan legislation to reform our criminal justice system by making communities safer, modernizing sentencing laws and providing former prisoners with tools to become productive members of our society. https://t.co/KLmJKYC2p1 #CJReform

Just talked with President @realdonaldTrump. He strongly believes criminal justice reform bill must pass now.
He also indicated he supports putting criminal justice reform bill on year-end spending bill which must include MORE wall funding.
I agree with both.

Maybe this will help James Fields, Jr. who was sentenced to life plus 419 years in prison? It’s not like this is a major priority of the Koch Brothers along with the tax cuts, deregulation and DACA amnesty, right?
Note: Whoops, I forgot Jeff Sessions called Fields a terrorist and he is facing the death penalty.
