Tuesday. This is what I call a Slow Trump News Day. Busy by any traditional metric, but with the man-child in office, it’s comparatively slow.
A trial date has been set for a malicious prosecution charge against Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire convicted pedophile who has been a long time “party friend” of the rich and famous. As Donald Trump said of him “he always had great girls. A little young, but great.”
By the way, Epstein has been accused raping many young girls and pimping them out.
And he’s a friend of Donald Trump.
HOW TO READ THE STEELE DOSSIER
John Schindler did a great write up on how to read raw intelligence like the Steele Dossier.
People looking to discredit it will focus on details, and if even one detail is wrong, Oh Boy! The whole thing must be wrong.
Think of raw Intel like the first draft of a screenplay. The general story is there, but the details are up in the air, like locations and side characters.
I’ll go into more details about this a little later.
