VERY interesting developments in the Russia collusion investigation today. I'm sure some bloated orange turd is sweating like a whore in church right about now. coffee

After sending Pee-Wee Herman out to defend him on Sunday, Donnie Dementia must be freaking out right now.

Clearly Mueller's probe is winding down: Mueller adds veteran cyber prosecutor to special-counsel team - WaPo (subscription).

Honestly, there is a chance that Mueller will find insufficient evidence against Trump. I would not be shocked (although disappointed). I think, though, what he wants to do is lock Trump into testimony, now, so that he can focus on discrediting it later.

A year after Buzzfeed published the Steele dossier, and just a day after the Fusion GPS transcript was produced, is a good time to take A Second Look at the Steele Dossier.
Quote:
In this special Just Security article, highly respected former member of the CIA’s Senior Intelligence Service, John Sipher examines the Steele dossier using methods that an intelligence officer would to try to validate such information. Sipher concludes that the dossier’s information on campaign collusion is generally credible when measured against standard Russian intelligence practices, events subsequent to Steele’s reporting, and information that has become available in the nine months since Steele’s final report. The dossier, in Sipher’s view, is not without fault, including factual inaccuracies. Those errors, however, do not detract from an overarching framework that has proven to be ever more reliable as new revelations about potential Trump campaign collusion with the Kremlin and its affiliates has come to light in the nine months since Steele submitted his final report.

New York Times: Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election fits into a nearly two-decade pattern of meddling with governments around the world, and the United States’ response to its brazen attack is being hindered by President Trump, a new report prepared by Senate Democrats concludes.

Quote:
“The report, which is to be released on Wednesday, is one of the most extensive to date on foreign interference by Russia and President Vladimir Putin. It tracks Russian efforts in 19 countries, chronicling misinformation campaigns, the funding of far-right political causes and the manipulation of energy supplies long before 2016 in an attempt to glean lessons for American officials considering how to counteract similar efforts here.”

Well, well, well, apparently when Trump whispered to his Don, "Will no one rid me of this meddlesome Special Counsel?" No one answered.

What is the deal with Nunes? He has written a memo that we aren't allowed to read, but we are to believe that it proves beyond a doubt malfeasance by the Obama administration. Apparently this memo was not written to be read, it is to be waved in the air while foaming at the mouth.
