UPDATE 3:50 PM

With the House Intelligence Committee hearing wrapped, here are more key takeaways for today:

  1. Mueller reaffirmed that the Trump campaign welcomed Russian help in the 2016 election.
  2. Mueller confirmed that Trump and Trump’s team’s shady foreign connections even beyond Russian interference were extensive.
  3. Mueller reiterated that Russian interference in our democracy continues and will continue into 2020.
  4. Mueller said of Trump’s praise for Wikileaks, “problematic is an understatement.”

Finally, above all — today has reaffirmed in crystal clear terms the most important fact about the Mueller report — Trump has NOT been exonerated of wrongdoing, and Trump’s wrongdoing has left the country vulnerable and damaged our democracy. …


Another day, another opportunity to explain why Donald Trump’s cabinet picks are unqualified for the positions they’ve been appointed to.

But this just isn’t any cabinet pick. This is Matthew Whitaker, Trump’s hand-picked Acting Attorney General and replacement of his Russia-probe recused-Attorney General that he fired less than a week ago.

Matthew Whitaker is a hyper-partisan hack who, on many occasions, has made his pre-judgement on Mueller’s probe — outcome be damned — very obvious. …

Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke has been in hot water lately for his spending office.

Zinke has been wasting taxpayer dollars since Day One, using government helicopters as his personal taxis and booking private jets at taxpayer expense.

And now we know that Zinke spent $139,000 in taxpayer dollars on a set of doors for his office.

That money could have gone to say protecting public lands — something Zinke is supposed to be doing in his position.

But what else can you buy for the cost of Ryan Zinke’s doors?
