Daily Check-In 9/5/2017

Tuesday after Labor Day. I’m going to make this short.

DACA

Trump announced an end to DACA, affecting about 800,000 Dreamers. Trump sent Sessions out to make the announcement that they would end this in 6 months.

It’s a chickenshit move.

The only good that could come out of this is that Congress might get some actual immigration reform done.

GERRYMANDERING

Senators John McCain and Sheldon Whitehouse filed an amicus brief on Gill vs Whitford . This case is scheduled to go before the Supreme Court, and could set a legal standard for partisan gerrymandering.

KEITH SCHILLER FIRED

Keith Schiller, long time head of Trump’s security team, was fired/let go/quit over the weekend. He’s been with Trump for 18 years, and was involved in Comey’s firing, hand delivering the letter to FBI HQ, even though Comey was in L.A.

Keith knows where the bodies are buried. Because he buried them.

MANAFORT IN EDVA THIS MORNING

I don’t have much else, but supposedly Paul Manafort was seen in the courtroom of the Eastern District of Virginia this morning. Could be that he was testifying at a grand jury, offering a proffer, or getting a cool taco recipe. I’ll update when I find out more.

Thank you and have a good one.
