Report: FBI probed whether Trump was secretly working for Russia (AP, via LA Times, subscription). Today Trump went on another Twitter tirade over the NYT report, which says so much. I'm actually encouraged. The FBI was doing its job investigating (it's in the name) what we all saw happening in plain sight. Trump's bizarre affection for Putin and Russia is a national security threat. We've seen the "quo", the FBI just wants to know how much "quid" is involved.

Here, as elsewhere, people are outraged at what feels like a rigged game -- an economy that won't respond, a democracy that won't listen, and a financial sector that holds all the cards. - Robert Reich
