And @Citi, the first one ever to be helmed by a woman, appears to have taken the lead.
Wall Street firms have taken a stand in the past on issues like immigration policy and trans rights. Now they’re wading into abortion access too, however warily bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
Cui bono when it comes to the SCOTUS leak, ⁦@adamliptak⁩ asks in this insightful analysis of the #roevwade draft opinion nytimes.com/2022/05/03/us/…
Important look at what a post-Roe U.S. would look like: abortion illegal in roughly half the states. nytimes.com/2022/05/03/ups…
1. Oral argument made obvious the Court will overturn Roe and Casey, properly returning abortion regulations to states. 2. This unprecedented leak is a stunning, shameful, and likely illegal attempt to obstruct the Court’s deliberations on a pending case. politico.com/news/2022/05/0…

Horrific news. We all knew the odds, but it is nonetheless shocking to see a Court move towards overturning 50 years of precedent in a stunning revocation of our right to have an abortion. But just as important: this is NOT an official ruling. Abortion is still legal. twitter.com/nytimes/status…

Right wing influencers are trying to recenter the discussion around the leak rather than the decision, the thread provides context and shows how many of those attacks are not rooted in historical fact.

She also said the justices were “so shaken” by this leak — the likes of which has not been seen in recent history
Roberts biographer @JoanBiskupic notes that although the Chief Justice has been against abortion historically, he was reluctant to overturn the precedent of #RoeVWade on @CNN
This. Having lived through this for 8+ months, my biggest advice to my colleagues is outline your personal values and hard-stops w/ your family, then retain your *own* counsel, immediately. This was the most valuable decision I made. twitter.com/AngryBlackLady…

This is massive news and “unprecedented” in modern times, writes @shearm. Incredible ⁦@politico⁩ scoop nytimes.com/2022/05/02/us/…
Also, @alexburnsNYT take on @LeaderMcConnell’s calculus about Trump — essentially telling @Liz_Cheney “just ignore him like I do” is incredibly telling
For Biden and the White House, “there is no game plan” for passing Build Back Better five months after @Sen_JoeManchin torpedoed it in December, says @jmartNYT on @MeetThePress. That’s a problem
I’m increasingly curious whether Biden will make a trip. nytimes.com/live/2022/05/0…

"The only thing more American than hot dogs and apple pie is, apparently, leaving office to gorge on foreign financing in the service of influence-peddling," writes @cjcmichel of Jared Kushner -- but also of Bob Dole and Bill Clinton newrepublic.com/article/166137…

Despite finding his pitch “unsatisfactory in all aspects," officials at the main Saudi sovereign wealth fund -- chaired by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman -- gave Jared Kushner $2B for his nascent private-equity firm. Piece by @ddknyt and me: nytimes.com/2022/04/10/us/…
Six months after leaving the White House, Jared Kushner secured a $2 billion investment from a fund led by the Saudi crown prince, a close ally during the Trump administration, despite objections from the fund’s advisers about the merits of the deal. nyti.ms/37zskFM

I recently spent a week near Carpentras, France, where there was a fair bit of this👇around. Clearly they were tapping the national mood#FrenchElectionssT
What an absolute pleasure this was to read. Thank you, @nkulish and @RebeccaRuiz, for introducing us to this mysterious billionaire, novelist, and low-profile philanthropist, with such surprising details nytimes.com/2022/04/10/bus…
@MarkSimonHK @ddknyt @katekelly Mark, to be fair we have done plenty of Hunter stories. I have been involved in four myself.

Mnuchin's due diligence review by the PIF appears to have been far smoother, w the investors noting his business track record and knowledge set. Remarkably, Mnuchin ultimately agreed to a management fee lower than what Kushner agreed to, and received less money than Kushner did.
Former Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who was pitching a new private-equity firm around the same time as Jared Kushner was, received $1B from the Saudi PIF -- making it his cornerstone investor. By @ddknyt and me nytimes.com/2022/04/10/us/…

Still, the full PIF board, chaired by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, approved the investment. “This investment aims to form a strategic relationship with the Affinity Partners Fund and its founder, Jared Kushner,” stated a PIF document at the time.
Objections included: “the inexperience of the Affinity Fund management”; the possibility that the kingdom would be responsible for “the bulk of the investment and risk”; and due diligence on the fledgling firm’s operations that found them “unsatisfactory in all aspects.”
