    If you connected these dots, what we see
    10/2017: CIA forced to walk back Pompeo's false claim "US intel concluded Russia effort to influence 2016 election were unsuccessful"
    1/2018: Pompeo met w/sanctioned Russian spies
    3/2018 TRUMP:Pompeo &I are "always on the same wavelength"

    POTUS now has State, CIA, and U.S. House on his/Russia's side. Senate hangs in balance, so by November a free press might be the only big non-Russian actor left.

    Oh my! As part of a defense of its high estimates of non-citizen voters, Kobach's team is using this analysis of "foreign" names:

    @Taniel
    remember: the Kobach commission had asked for Texas records "that identify all voters with Hispanic surnames." Now you know exactly why. washingtonpost.com/local/public-s…

    The truth still unclear, but amazing AP report: State officials say Tillerson did receive a call Friday, from John Kelly - but it was only to tell him "there might be a presidential tweet that would concern him."

    yeah, that's what I read. which is pretty believable, given this administration.

    Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman, runs a significant risk of spending the rest of his life in prison and the evidence against him by special counsel Robert Mueller’s office seems strong, a federal judge declared in an order made public on Tuesday.

    U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III, who is based in Alexandria, Virginia, and is assigned to a newly filed indictment against Manafort dealing with bank fraud and tax evasion, said the veteran lobbyist and political consultant posed “a substantial risk of flight” because of his assets and the gravity of his legal predicament.

    “The defendant is a person of great wealth who has the financial means and international connections to flee and remain at large, as well as every incentive to do so,” Ellis wrote in an order setting the terms of what the judge called “home incarceration” for Manafort, 68, who lives in Alexandria but also has homes in Florida and on Long Island.

    “Given the nature of the charges against the defendant and the apparent weight of the evidence against him, defendant faces the very real possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison,” wrote Ellis, an appointee of President Ronald Reagan.

    The order, dated Friday, puts Manafort in a “24-hour-a-day lockdown” at his Alexandria condo, except for medical appointments or emergencies, court appearances and meeting with his defense attorneys.

    The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude larger than is required to produce it.

    A spokesman for United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement has resigned, saying that he could no longer “bear the burden” of spreading falsehoods on behalf of the Trump administration.

    The spokesman, James Schwab, who had worked for the agency’s San Francisco Division, told news outlets Monday that his decision was prompted by false statements made by the agency on Feb. 27 and repeated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions last week.

    The statements criticized the mayor of Oakland, Libby Schaaf, for her decision last month to warn city residents that a raid by federal immigration agents targeting roughly 1,000 people was imminent. The agency’s deputy director, Thomas D. Homan, said that Ms. Schaaf’s warning had helped “864 criminal aliens and public safety threats” to evade capture in the raid.

    Mr. Sessions, in a visit to California last week, condemned Ms. Schaaf, a Democrat, and echoed the agency, asserting that her actions had allowed hundreds to escape.

    Mr. Schwab said in interviews, first with The San Francisco Chronicle and then with CNN, that he had been frustrated by the remarks, and had quit “because I didn’t want to perpetuate misleading facts.”

    “I asked them to change the information,” he told The Chronicle, referring to the 864 people to whom the statement alluded. “I told them that the information was wrong, they asked me to deflect, and I didn’t agree with that. Then I took some time and I quit.”
