Two sisters, one 5 years old and the other 3 months old, were rescued in Denver by undercover agents during this year's FBI-led sting operation against sex traffickers, officials said.

The alleged trafficker, a friend of the children's family, made a deal to sell them for sex for $600, the FBI said. The friend communicated with an undercover agent, the FBI said in announcing details of Operation Cross Country XI.

The Domestic Conspiracy That Gave Trump The Election Is In Plain Sight | HuffPost
Favorite tweet: SethAbramson

32/ But I *will* note Prince's *audacity* in complaining about leaks.

This is a man who *admitted* to being the beneficiary of Hatch Act-violative leaks from the NYPD—about the Wiener case—that *materially affected* the results of a presidential election. https://t.co/P1WEKXERQx

30/ Secondly, Prince knows *a lot* about Russian "active measures" because he appears to have *used* them before the election. Here he is—96 hours before election day—trying to poison American voters with Russian disinformation that's literally 100% false. https://t.co/vOsORZQGdx

Three ways to remake the American economy for all • The Guardian
Senator Elizabeth Warren is a Democrat senator who might be a candidate for president in 2020. She gave a <a href="http://openmarketsinstitute.org/events/americas-monopoly-moment-work-innovation-and-control-in-an-age-of-concentrated-power/">speech at the Open Markets Institute</a> about dealing with monopoly power, especially in technology:
<p>Donald Trump used to talk about the danger of monopoly. But that talk has pretty much disappeared now that he is president. Once he took the oath, he began stacking his administration with a who’s who of former lobbyists, Wall Street insiders, and corporate executives committed to tilting the scales even further in favor of their powerful friends and against everybody else. And just days ago, the Republican Congress handed out a giant tax giveaway to Wall Street corporations and the super-rich, leaving working families and college students to pick up the tab.

To rebuild an economy that works for everyone, not just the big guys, it is critical to reduce concentrated power in our markets. The federal government has the tools to do it; Congress handed antitrust enforcers those tools over a century ago. But those tools have been sitting on the shelf for decades, gathering dust.

Antitrust enforcers placed those tools on the shelf when they adopted Chicago School principles that narrowed the scope of antitrust laws; they moved away from the goal of protecting competition. It’s time to demand that antitrust enforcers pick up those tools, dust them off, and start enforcing the law again…

…It’s time to hold those corporations accountable for these competition-killing practices. And let’s be clear: holding everyone accountable means everyone. The investigation into Russia’s influence in the 2016 election has exposed how influential giant tech platforms can be. There is no exception in antitrust laws for big tech.

It’s time for antitrust enforcers to start looking critically at the ways in which massive amounts of data can be manipulated in ways that choke off competition.</p>
