A lot of stories came out this weekend and today. Where I may normally try to talk about all of them, or at least as many as possible, I want to focus on just a couple that might’ve flown under the radar. I’ll mention several more in the lightning round.
BILL BROWDER, INTERPOL, AND A VISA
Over the weekend, Putin used a loophole in the Interpol system to issue a warrant for Bill Browder’s arrest. This ended up causing his visa to the United States being revoked over the weekend. It was reinstated just a couple hours ago.
This is just the latest attack on Bill Browder by the Russians. Sadly, it won’t be the last.
HILARY CLINTON AND THE SPIES AROUND HER
We’re going to get a few stories, starting this week, talking about the spies and agents of influence got close to Hilary Clinton.
The purpose of the stories is to show how deep the Russians have gotten in to our political system.
Expect the trolls to use this as their “what about the Russians around Hilary? Trump’s awesome!” moment.
Also, get ready for news about the Party of Regions. They were the Pro-Putin Party in Ukraine that Manafort worked with. Several of the party members approached HRC and her team over the years.
BANNON AND HIS MIDDLE EAST CONNECTIONS
Remember a few weeks ago, or was it months ago, when stories came out about Flynn, Manafort, and Bannon tried to set up multiple nuclear deals with several Middle Eastern countries? Well, that’s coming back around.
Russia is just one piece of the corruption map.
RUSSIAN MACHINE NEVER BREAKS, MONDAY EDITION
JFK Papers to be released soon. Not only will Trump take credit for a law written in 1992, but if anything even slightly conspiratorial involving the CIA comes up, expect Trump to beat that drum like John Bonham.
IN OTHER NEWS
That’s it for today. I’m going to start coming up with all of the ways that Trump could fuck up the Traditional Turkey Pardoning. I will come up with the worst things I can think of (that I’m okay publishing), then will revisit it afterward. I’m afraid that whatever I come up with, Trump will be even worse.
Thank you, and have a good one.
