Looks like Rod Rosenstein is being set as the sacrificial lamb and it's pulling eyes off Trump's conspiracy to collude with Putin in '16.

Just wunnerful. I'd better lube up my walker for when the shit really hits the fan.

Trumps been on very good behavior (for him) in advance of mid-terms lately.... I expect Rosenstein gets "I pardon you." For now. Headshot later.

A small fish was sentenced on Wednesday to six months in prison, six months of home detention.

Link to the new New Yorker article cited in the Huffpost piece: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2...trump-campaign


Long read but very interesting. I thought the Alpha Bank--Trump datalink evidence was important when the Slate article came outlast fall. Very glad to see this comprehensive follow-up.

'Trump to give Nunes the Medal of Freedom? Better idea: free nights at a Trump hotel'

Read more here: https://www.fresnobee.com/opinion/ed...#storylink=cpy


Wouldn't it be great if Devin Nunes moved back to the family farm, in Iowa?

^^^ If he gives Nunes that medal, look for all other living recipients to mail theirs back in.

Massive Twitter data release sheds light on Russia’s Trump strategy

As if we needed more evidence that the Russians corrupted this election. Donny is an illegitimate president*, without a shadow of a doubt. You’d have to be as ignorant and pigheaded as Whell to think otherwise.

More Russian Witches Falling Out Of The Sky

"The Justice Department announced Friday it had charged a Russian woman who prosecutors say conspired to interfere with the 2018 U.S. election, marking the first criminal case that accuses a foreign national of interfering in the upcoming midterms.
Elena Khusyaynova, 44, was charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States. Prosecutors said she managed the finances of “Project Lakhta,” a foreign influence operation they said was designed “to sow discord in the U.S. political system” by pushing arguments and misinformation online about a host of divisive political issues, including immigration, the Confederate flag, gun control and National Football League protests during the national anthem.
The charges against Khusyaynova came just as the Office of the Director of National Intelligence warned that it was concerned about “ongoing campaigns” by Russia, China and Iran to interfere with the upcoming midterm elections and the 2020 race — an ominous message just weeks before voters head to the polls."

If anyone is expecting Trump and the GOP to protect the vote? I've got a bridge or two to sell you.
