Hillary Clinton's former campaign chair John Podesta — who infamously had his emails hacked by the Russian government during the 2016 presidential race — is speaking out against the "big lie campaign" propagated against him by President Trump.

His tweets: "Not bad enough that I was the victim of a massive cyber crime directed by the Russian President ... Now I'm the victim of a big lie campaign by the American President. [Trump] seems a lot more worried now than July 2016 when he asked the Russians to hack our campaign."

Some context: Trump attacked Tony Podesta, John's older brother, on Twitter earlier today, saying that the brothers have "earth shattering" information about Democrats that "could Drain the Swamp."

Roger Stone told Axios in a phone interview that he plans to write and speak for President Trump's re-election now that Stone "won't die in a squalid hellhole of corona-19 virus."

"I'm asthmatic," said Stone, 67. "Sending me to a prison where I could not be socially distanced ... would, I think, be a death sentence."

Health care workers faced severe shortages of face masks, gowns and other protective equipment at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, and they're afraid it's happening again now.

Why it matters: Hospitals, nursing homes and physician clinics need this equipment to protect themselves and to avoid spreading infection. Supplies are already stretched thin, and will likely get thinner as the coronavirus and flu season converge in the fall.
