BILLBOARD. Celebs write love letters to the LGBTQ community. “Sia, Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez, Elton John, Celine Dion, Kelly Clarkson, Kacey Musgraves, RuPaul and Melissa Etheridge are among the 70+ musicians and LGBTQ activists who shared messages for this special project.
2020. Trump to hold reelection fundraiser this month: “Trump will speak at a ritzy Trump Victory event in Washington, D.C. on June 28. Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel and the RNC’s finance chairman, Steve Wynn, will also be attending the event, according to an invitation obtained by Politico.”
FEUD. Taylor Swift has no interest in Katy Perry drama: “She honestly wants no part of this, that’s why she avoids talking about it. She doesn’t want to engage.”
GET. Megyn Kelly to interview Vladimir Putin for debut broadcast: “Kelly herself made the announcement on NBC’s Today Thursday morning, reporting live from Russia. Kelly is moderating the plenary session of an economic forum in St. Petersburg on Friday (June 2), where Putin will be one of the panelists, and her team had hoped to land a one-on-one interview with the Russian president.”
MORE LIES. Trump’s call to Roger Stone.
IMPEACHABLE. Rep. Jarrold Nadler says Trump’s firing of Comey could do it: “If the president fired Comey because he asked for loyalty and hadn’t gotten it, because he had asked him to ease off on the investigation of [Michael] Flynn — because in effect he was asking him to ease off the investigation of possible collusion by the Trump campaign with the Russians in subverting the election — that would be obstruction of justice which is an impeachable offense.”
Comey's testimony will be important, but is not enough. We need to find out exactly what happened w/ Russian subversion of our elections. pic.twitter.com/gFdoKHDY65
