THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION

What’s the BuzzFeed?

So far there’s nothing confirmed here, but it’s worth keeping an eye on.

Oleg Deripaska

NEW: The TRUMP admin. claimed it forced painful concessions from OLEG DERIPASKA to lift sanctions on his companies. But a confidential document shows he & his allies will retain majority ownership, & he will settle huge debts likely at favorable rates.

The confidential document shows that the TRUMP admin. approved a deal allowing DERIPASKA to “divest” 21M shares of his main co. (EN+) to HIS OWN foundation (Volnoe Delo). The fndtn + Deripaska + his ex-wife + her father will own 57% of EN+ under the deal.

ALSO: deal lifts sanctions on DERIPASKA’s . It’s 22.5% owned by a firm tied to: —Viktor Vekselberg: 🇷🇺 oligarch who attended TRUMP inauguration & drew MUELLER interest. —Len Blavatnik: 🇺🇦-born US/UK citizen who gave $1M to inaugural.

COHEN, NEW YORK, AND THE OTHER LAWSUITS

 

SHUTDOWN & IMMIGRATION

Walking through #ATL and separately 2 @TSA agents told me to “keep fighting.” I told them I’m sorry they’re going through this. One said, “Yeah. but we’re still working.” Just breaks my damn heart. It is sinful to make someone work without pay. #TrumpShutdown. Gets worse. At airport bar & young man next to me is carded. I told him to take it as a compliment (they didn’t card me). “Yeah, but you’re not on the business end of a government shutdown,” he said. He serves in Coast Guard & has a family w/ mortgage. He deserves so much better. This #TrumpShutdown is not only hurting the credit ratings of millions of Americans. It’s destroying the credit rating of the moral leader of the world, America. Who in the hell doesn’t pay people who are working?

IN OTHER NEWS…

Fuck.

The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.”

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”

 “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”

 “I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.”

 “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.”

 “I have a dream that one day down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of “interposition” and “nullification,” one day right there in Alabama…”

 “… little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today.”

 “I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.”

 “This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood”

 “With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.”

“This will be the day, this will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning: “My country, ‘tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring!””

 “And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.”

 “Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania. Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado. Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California. But not only that: Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.”

 “Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee. Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.”

And when this happen, and when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children…”

 “…black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old — spiritual: “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”” — Martin Luther King Jr.

 

RUMOR MILL

Angela Chen

Keep an eye out for the name Angela Chen.

 

That’s it for Monday.  This entry is short for a few reasons.  Mostly, I’m tired and the machine I’m typing on is about to go through a forced reboot.  If I don’t wrap up now, I’ll lose a lot of work.

I’d like to do a story about the various people that are running for POTUS in 2020.  I’ll try to do something with that in the next couple weeks.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
