Adding onto the previous statement. I don't even consider Mensch a real journo/source/etc.

I just don't like one idiot shitting on the other idiot for doing what the first idiot does all the time. Especially, when the first idiot has giant factual errors in their hit piece.

Shit like that irks me.

Where to even start with yesterday. The things I picked up on:

Mueller appointed.
Mueller and Intelligence Committee reviewing info on money laundering.
Confirmed recording of Paul Ryan knowing Putin pays Trump.
Flynn telling the transition team, led by Pence, that he was under investigation but Pence hiring him anyway.
Then Pence caught in the lie that he didn't know about the Pence investigation for months after Flynn himself told him.
18 undisclosed Russian contacts, minimum, for Trump staff.
Trump/Putin trying to find a way to talk while going around national security protocols.

Bingo. The information is out there. But, so many want to string this along for way more news opps.

Troy: what are the bombshells that are waiting in the wings to drop?

Also: everything that I'm hearing about this Mueller guy is really, really good. Like, Rosenstein couldn't have picked a better person to throw at this problem. The only issue is that Mueller runs a tight ship, and odds are that this whole investigation is going to be handled quietly in the background without any news stories coming out of it.

Right now on all sides, the effort is made to keep leaks quiet. Basically, if you're looking at the leaks, somebody on Team Trump is too.

I forgot what magazine ran the piece, but Trump is apparently super antsy about his still "in the wings" trip overseas. He wants days cuts, he wants it low-key. But, it's like Dude...be way more worried about what's happening next rather than traveling.

In terms of bombshells, it's mainly speculation right now. Due to the actual quality control of cutting off leaks...everyone is fighting for newer, better info. Hence, the multiple press sources turning on each other like they did yesterday.

Do you want to read a transcript? Seriously, it's about all I got right now that isn't middle aged fucking speculation.

Oh, the big thing from yesterday that sinks Pence I forgot to add. Flynn delayed attacks on IS because Turkey didn't want Kurds to be armed to assist, and Flynn got $500K for it. This allowed IS time to develop their laptop plan we are all hearing about now.

Bingo. I love that Billy is picking up the extra stuff. Half of my time is now spent decoding acronyms, military slang and figuring out who's saying what and where.

That's the basis for covering this shit anymore.

Also, Trumpy is in Middle East. Now, he's throwing a fit because Israel wouldn't let him land at Masada.

A ton of people think he threw Pence under the bus, but as I understand it...such ratting would be for nothing.

Still, it's not like he's in a position to tell Congress to fuck themselves. They can arrest him and bring him in.

I think the Senate has to vote on something (the technical term of which I've forgotten) before the Marshals haul him away, so that'll be another interesting wrinkle to all this.

Well, there's the outright prosecution and then there's Contempt of Congress. C.o.C. grants them some wiggle room.

To add context, Masada is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you have to take a cable car to it. He wanted to land his helicopter on top of an ancient, protected, historical site. Instead he threw a hissy fit, canceled the trip and will now give some other speech later. This is going to be a foreign trip of shit storm proportions.

Just as long as he ends up in a cell.

Chaffetz to be gone June 30th. I guess he's going to get hit with plenty of legal troubles shortly.

So Lieberman up for head of FBI, we all knew. But he works for the law firm currently representing Trump. So there's that.
