Daily Check-In 10/31/2017

Happy Halloween!

Today feels like the calm before the storm. A ton of things happened yesterday, so today feels like the day after a party. The house is a mess, someone set a chair on fire, and some random guy is sleeping in the bathtub.

PAPADOPOULOS: TRUMP CAMPAIGN APPROVED TRIP TO RUSSIA

Bloomberg has the story about how the Trump Campaign approved a trip to Moscow with low level staffers to meet with the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, per George Papadopoulos. This refers to the trip that Carter Page took to Moscow that is referred to in the Steele Dossier.

Trump has already tried distancing himself from Papadopoulos. Just like he has done with Manafort, Flynn, Sessions, Carter Page, and eventually his own children.

George pled guilty on October 5th for lying to an FBI Investigator, and has been a cooperating witness since July, including wearing a wire.

If a man is willing to wear a wire to avoid serious time in Federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison, then handing over emails is a foregone conclusion.

ADD SAM CLOVIS TO THE COOPERATING WITNESS LIST

Sam Clovis is working with Mueller. He’s also Working with the Senate Intelligence Committee.

UKRAINE BELIEVES THAT MANAFORT DID MORE THAN JUST MONEY LAUNDERING

The Daily Beast goes into great detail about Manafort’s connections in Ukraine.

They have him on war crimes, everything from theft, money laundering, election fraud, accessory to murder, and more.

They want his ass. If he’s lucky, he might get a show trial before his execution.

RIGHT WING MEDIA TRYING TO PLAY DOWN INDICTMENTS, EMBARRASSING EMPLOYEES AT FOX NEWS

Out of all the reactions, ignoring and attacking looks like the plan for the right wing media.

Employees at Fox News are embarrassed by what the channel aired in response to the indictments.

“It’s an embarrassment,” another Fox News employee echoed to CNN. “Frankly, there are shows on our network that are backing the President at all costs, and it’s that short term strategy that undermines the good work being done by others.”

SPEED ROUND!!!

36,000 MORE TWITTER ACCOUNTS WERE RUSSIAN, TWITTER TELLS CONGRESS

That’s it for today. It’s a little short, but after a 2.5 mile trick or treating trek tonight, I truly, totally, need to take a trip to talk to Terry and Tony on the trolley to the town of Torpidity.

I need to sleep.

Thank you, and have a good one.
