Secret Finding: 60 Russian Payments "to Finance Election Campaign of 2016"

Quote:
On Aug. 3 of last year, just as the US presidential election was entering its final, heated phase, the Russian foreign ministry sent nearly $30,000 to its embassy in Washington. The wire transfer, which came from a Kremlin-backed Russian bank, landed in one of the embassy’s Citibank accounts and contained a remarkable memo line: “to finance election campaign of 2016.”

To be clear, that's 60 wire transfers to Russian embassies the world over. That's a bit less obvious what it's for, particularly since 2016 was also a Russian election year. A lot of it's probably dirty money, question is, whose dirty money? Where'd it go? It's interesting but not incriminating, unfortunately.

The payments to other countries aren't necessarily that suspicious with specific respect to our election (though it does raise questions about things like Brexit). The $30k here should certainly be investigated though.

The House passed that tax bill today, over the objection of all the Dems and 13 Republicans. This one's a goddamn lulu, featuring huge tax cuts for the rich, sizeable future tax increases for the poor and middle class (cuz, you know, they aren't paying their fair share), Obamacare evisceration, and even a subtle nod to fetal personhood.

Drill, baby, drill.

With oil and gas exports being pretty much the be-all and end-all of the administration's "energy plan," this kind of shit is only going to get worse.

Trump picks ghost hunter to be federal judge - BBC News

Quote:
One of President Donald Trump's judicial nominees is a ghost hunter who has written several novellas about paranormal activities.
The appointment of Brett Talley, 36, for a lifetime post as an Alabama federal judge is raising eyebrows because he has never tried a case.
It also emerged he failed to disclose on a conflict-of-interest questionnaire that his wife is a White House lawyer.
But he did divulge his Tuscaloosa Paranormal Research Group membership.
Mr Talley was approved last week by the Senate committee on a party-line vote, and he is likely to be confirmed by the full chamber soon.
His nomination is part of President Trump's efforts to expand the presence of conservative jurists in American courtrooms, say analysts.
The Harvard-educated lawyer was unanimously deemed "not qualified" by the American Bar Association to serve an appointment on the US District Court for the Middle District of Alabama.
lol
