Happy New Year! It’s Wednesday, and a crazy one. I’m still getting caught up from being sick all of December, and there’s a few things I want to go over from my sick leave, but that’ll wait till my next post.
DEPUTY AG ROSENSTEIN, FBI DIRECTOR WRAY MEET WITH SPEAKER PAUL RYAN ABOUT DEVIN NUNES AND RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION
Nothing like a surprise meeting in the Capitol.
This is likely in relation to subpoenas that Devin Nunes, not the House Intelligence Committee, issued to the DOJ and FBI about their investigation into Russia.
NEW BOOK “FIRE & FURY” SHOWS THAT EVERYONE HATES DONALD TRUMP, LEADS TO FIGHTING BETWEEN TRUMP AND BANNON
This is gonna get good. I think this might be my next book purchase.
Here’s an excerpt. Holy Shit.
The author of the book, Michael Wolff, set up shop in the West Wing.
The staff thinks Trump is an idiot, and vice versa.
MANAFORT SUES MUELLER IN CIVIL COURT IN DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO GET SPECIAL COUNSELOR GUIDELINES THROWN OUT
Paul Manafort is trying to use a civil suit to keep his ass from a long prison sentence.
This is a desperate move to try to get the Special Counselor removed from the case, and his charges of money laundering and conspiracy against the United States thrown out.
It’s desperate, and will most likely be thrown out as frivolous.
FUSION GPS ATTACKS NUNES AND GRASSLEY IN NEW YORK TIMES OP ED, CALLING FOR TRANSCRIPTS OF TESTIMONY TO BE RELEASED.
The New York Times released this opinion editorial from Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, the company behind the Steele Dossier, laid into the Republican led Congressional committees over their partisan behavior, including how they ignored basic information about Trump and his history and attempted to discredit his company.
This is definitely worth a read, but the biggest part of the story to me was Glenn saying that the FBI had a source inside the Trump Campaign.
Read that sentence again. The FBI had an inside source telling them about Russia.
LEAKED RACIST STORY ABOUT MUELLER GRAND JURY SOUNDS A LOT LIKE TRUMP
Think Progress has a good write up about a very racist story that showed up in the New York Post, one of Trump’s favorite papers, written by one of his favorite writers, using phrases that he constantly uses like “Central Casting.”
There’s a good chance the story was made up by Donald Trump, and told to a friendly writer to try to make it look like a bunch of minorities were on the jury, trying to bait his racist base.
Trump has a history of using the tabloids to smear his opponents. He would often call the Post or National Enquirer under the alias John Barron, and attack his opponents or brag about his sexual conquests.
VOTING COMMISSION KILLED BY WHITE HOUSE
Good. This panel was being set up to suppress voting rights across the country.
This is just one night back! There’s a few things I want to go over from the last couple weeks, like Ivanka getting caught up in a $100 million diamond scam, and the increased attacks on the FBI and DOJ for the Right Wing Media.
Thank you, and have a good one.
