Russiagate update: Off-topic top story for an off-the-rails day
“Everybody knows he’s not stable.” There’s no question about that, especially after the two-fer of Uncle Dotard’s off-the-rails tweets and asinine “tax cut” speech in Missouri. The fact that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are asking why the cabinet has not invoked the 25th amendment will not go unnoticed.
Could these be the reasons that Trump has gone full-King-George delusional?
- “President Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, met this month with investigators working for Robert S. Mueller, the special counsel, and answered questions about a meeting with a Russian ambassador during the presidential transition, according to a person briefed on the investigation.”
- “U.S. President Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. will meet with the House Intelligence Committee as soon as next week, CNN reported on Wednesday citing multiple sources with knowledge of the agreement.”
- “Subpoenas are being sent to 23 Trump businesses requiring them to preserve records that may be sought by the attorneys general from the District of Columbia and Maryland in a lawsuit accusing the president of profiting from his office.”
- “Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team has postponed an anticipated grand jury testimony linked to his investigation into Michael Flynn amid growing indications of possible plea deal discussions.”
- Guess which New York radio personality was Roger Stone’s WikiLeaks contact? Several Twitterati figured it out a couple weeks back, but now it is confirmed. Speaking of which, buuuurn!
I asked Roger Stone in March if Randy Credico was his Wikileaks contact and he lied to me and said no. He just texted me, “A misguided effort to protect Credico who I felt had helped me on an off the record basis. Sorry.” Many reporters use Stone as a Trump source. Beware. https://t.co/OeGwFDeYtT

- This is only slightly off-topic: “A federal judge said Wednesday that he’ll allow the Democratic National Committee to depose Sean Spicer, the former Republican National Committee communications director and White House spokesman, on whether he violated a 35-year-old consent decree barring the RNC from engaging in ballot security or voter suppression efforts.”
