CNN has a piece that focuses on visitor logs when it should instead focus more on the Ecuadorian politics over Julian Assange's presence in their embassy and the inventory of devices accessible to Assange. It also
The news that Flynn and Turkish cut-out Ekim Alptekin had more ties than previously known makes some of his claims to Rob Kelner -- which his current firebreather lawyer Sidney Powell just released thinking it helped him -- may actually prove that he lied.

None of the internecine squabbling between House Democrats' factions gets them any closer to doing what the 2018 Blue Wave told Democrats needed to be done. When will House Dems pull out of their navel-gazing spiral?

Sidney Powell made an claim in a June 27 meeting with Bijan Kian's prosecutors designed to blow up the prosecution. But she still wants to claim -- the cooperation schedule notwithstanding -- that her client is cooperating in that prosecution.

Gina Haspel is trying to make it harder to hold the CIA accountable and legally more risky to leak classified identities to WikiLeaks. But the effort may backfire, making it easier for Assange to beat charges for leaking the identities of informants (which is a good thing).
When Mike Flynn hired new counsel, it became clear he was ... up to something. Now that something might get him -- and possibly even his son (concerns about whom motivated Flynn to cooperate in the first place) -- sent to prison. Or, it might…

Ann Donaldson generally used a code to not answer the House Judiciary Committee's questions to her. But the way in which she applies that code to questions about Richard Burr tipping off the White House to the FBI's investigation are quite damning.

The frothy right thinks it's really important to ask Robert Mueller about the role of the dossier in his investigation of Trump people like Michael Cohen. But the public record suggests it didn't predicate the investigation into Cohen, who was the villain of the Steele dossier.

In the first of a series on what the public record shows about the Steele dossier's influence on the Mueller investigation, I'll show that it definitely had a role in the investigation of Carter Page, but for different reasons than commonly understood.

Jim Jordan thinks he has a doozy question for Robert Mueller: Why Mueller didn't decide he couldn't charge conspiracy until after the mid-terms. Jordan would more productively ask Donald Trump that question than Mueller.
