HSIOW. Holy Shit, it’s Only Wednesday.
Today has been especially crazy.
FACEBOOK SOLD RUSSIAN ADS DURING CAMPAIGN
This is big. Huge. Per the Washington Post, Facebook sold campaign ads to a Russian organization. They claim that $100k was spent by at least 470 fraudulent accounts.
It’s been assumed so for over a year, but having them say so to a Senate Committee makes it an even bigger deal than anyone knew.
DAILY CALLER CALLING IT – PAUL MANAFORT WILL BE INDICTED
The Daily Caller released a report that aides inside the White House believe that Manafort is screwed.
Why is this news?
The Daily Caller is a very partisan, right wing site. This would be like ShareBlue or HuffPo saying HRC was guilty of some evil email stuff.
TRUMP OPENLY ACCEPTING BRIBES VIA GOLF COURSE
USA Today did a ton of groundwork tying together foreign diplomats, lobbyists, and federal contractors to golf trips at Donald Trump’s courses while he was there, and that they were seeking favors from the President.
The President is openly accepting bribes. The fact that this isn’t the biggest story of the year just shows how fucked up things really are right now.
HURRICANE IRMA RAMPING UP
Irma is currently a Category 5, and is hitting Puerto Rico tonight. It’s anticipated to hit Florida on Friday.
TRUMP BACKS DEMOCRATIC DEAL ON HARVEY RELIEF, DEBT CEILING
This one is weird. Trump sided with the Democrats today on Harvey relief and the Debt Ceiling deal. I have two ideas why.
First, Trump is mad at McConnell and wants to spite him.
Second, he thinks doing this deal with Chuck Schumer will get them to stop the Russian investigation.
This may be the dumbest thing he’s done. Until tomorrow. Who knows what stupidity will happen then.
FALLOUT FROM DACA
Following the DACA rescinding, 15 states, and several companies, are suing the President. Leading the charge is New York AG Eric Schneiderman. This isn’t by coincidence. Schneiderman is working with Mueller to deliver a Fuck-Your-Pardon Sandwich with a side of RICO Fries to Donald Trump.
Shits getting interesting. Something big is coming tomorrow.
If it feels like this has been a constant drip of information, I think it’s intentional. I’ll write about why this weekend.
Thank you, and have a good one.
