"I am scared of everything" I loud-whispered to him repeatedly. He got a little in front of me, where he gets when he thinks I might absentmindedly walk into traffic. He listened, and I explained that it wasn't just that I couldn't see my future, I couldn't even imagine it. Whatever sense I had yesterday for who I would be in six months, for who I would be for the rest of my life, it had slipped away as we had walked out of that office. All that was left was a warm, indecipherable fog.

In an attempt to spin the GOP refusal to make Adam Schiff's memo refuting Devin Nunes' one, an anonymous source that might be Tom Rooney makes it clear that there are far more sources implicating Carter Page as an Agent of a Foreign Power than just the Steele dossier.

In a new trick following on its previous attempt at retroactive classification, the Department of Defense has now decided that the war in Afghanistan is going so badly that even unclassified data now can not be released.

JD Gordon wants you to know that his anonymous alter ego didn't "collude" with Russia. He also wants you to think Mueller is only investigating obstruction. But that doesn't explain what the other 16 prosecutors are doing.

After a victim of child rape by Afghan forces killed three Marines in Afghanistan in 2015, Congress asked SIGAR to investigate how Afghan units continue to receive funding in light of known human rights abuses.
