Sep 1, 2015. Russia interfered in the 2016 election to help Trump win
Breaking with their House Republican counterparts, the Senate Intelligence Committee said Tuesday that the intelligence community properly concluded in January of last year that Russian President Vladimir Putin was trying to help Donald Trump when Moscow meddled in the 2016 election.
...
The Senate summary noted there were different confidence levels between the National Security Agency and the CIA and FBI about whether Putin and the Russian government were aspiring to help Trump; the CIA and FBI assessed with "high confidence" and the NSA with "moderate confidence." - Jeremy Herb cnn.com
Jan 1, 2016 to Nov 6, 2016. It has been debunked that Ukraine at all interfered in the 2016 elections
The CrowdStrike allegation is crazy stuff, dismissed by even Trump’s own aides. So let’s ignore that.
The story of Chalupa’s work at the DNC has not advanced since 2017, and it’s pretty thin beer, especially when compared with state-ordered hacking by Russia. She may or may not have worked with embassy officials, and the DNC did not use her research. The impact, if any, seems minimal.
The release of the “black ledger” — via a Ukrainian state agency and legislator — did result in Manafort’s removal from the campaign and prompted questions about Trump and Russia. (Trump might have avoided some of these questions if he had done some due diligence and not hired Manafort in the first place, given Manafort’s deep ties to Russian figures.) But the legal ruling in Ukraine that this was election inference has been overturned. And again, people appear to have acted out of individual motivations, not at the behest of the head of state. - Glenn Kessler washingtonpost.com

Sep 1, 2016. Mitch McConnell refused to sign bipartisan statement on Russian Interference into US elections
Former Vice President Joe Biden says he and President Barack Obama decided not to speak out publicly on Russian interference during the 2016 campaign after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to sign a bipartisan statement condemning the Kremlin's role.
Speaking on Tuesday at the Council on Foreign Relations, Biden said the Obama administration sought a united front to dispel concerns that going public with such accusations would be seen as an effort to undermine the legitimacy of the election.
However, McConnell "wanted no part of having a bipartisan commitment saying, essentially, 'Russia's doing this. Stop,' " he said.
At that point, Biden added, he felt that "the die had been cast" and that "this was all about the political play." - Scott Neuman npr.org
Jan 6, 2017. The CIA, NSA, FBI, and ODNI concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 election
American intelligence officials have concluded that the president of Russia, Vladimir V. Putin, personally “ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election,” and turned from seeking to “denigrate” Hillary Clinton to developing “a clear preference for President-elect Trump.” - David E. Sanger nytimes.com
Jan 20, 2017 to Mar 4, 2018. The state department spent $0 of $120 million dollars it was granted in order to fight Russian meddling
As Russia’s virtual war against the United States continues unabated with the midterm elections approaching, the State Department has yet to spend any of the $120 million it has been allocated since late 2016 to counter foreign efforts to meddle in elections or sow distrust in democracy.
As a result, not one of the 23 analysts working in the department’s Global Engagement Center — which has been tasked with countering Moscow’s disinformation campaign — speaks Russian, and a department hiring freeze has hindered efforts to recruit the computer experts needed to track the Russian efforts.
The delay is just one symptom of the largely passive response to the Russian interference by President Trump, who has made little if any public effort to rally the nation to confront Moscow and defend democratic institutions. More broadly, the funding lag reflects a deep lack of confidence by Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson in his department’s ability to execute its historically wide-ranging mission and spend its money wisely. - Gardiner Harris nytimes.com
May 10, 2017. Trump told Russian officials he was not concerned with Moscow's meddling in the US election
President Donald Trump told two Russian officials in a 2017 meeting that he was not concerned about Moscow’s meddling in the U.S. election, which prompted White House officials to limit access to the remarks, the Washington Post reported on Friday.
A summary of Trump’s Oval Office meeting with Russia’s foreign minister and its ambassador was limited to a few officials in an attempt to keep the president’s comments from being disclosed publicly, the Post said, citing former officials with knowledge of the matter.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters.
A member of the U.S. intelligence community who filed a whistleblower complaint against Trump said notes from other conversations the president had with foreign leaders had been placed on a highly classified computer system in a departure from normal practice in a bid to protect information that was politically sensitive, rather than sensitive for national security reasons. - unlisted cnbc.com
Jul 16, 2018 Donald Trump:
I don’t see any reason why it would be [Russia who interfered in our elections]. I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.
Jul 16, 2018. Trump sided with Vladimir Putin over the US intelligence community regarding Russia's election interference in the US 2016 election
US President Donald Trump, in a stunning rebuke of the US intelligence community, declined on Monday to endorse the US government's assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election, saying he doesn't "see any reason why" Russia would be responsible.
Instead, Trump -- standing alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin -- touted Putin's vigorous denial and pivoted to complaining about the Democratic National Committee's server and missing emails from Hillary Clinton's personal account.
"I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today," Trump said during a joint news conference after he spent about two hours in a room alone with Putin, save for a pair of interpreters.
Trump's statements amounted to an unprecedented refusal by a US president to believe his own intelligence agencies over the word of a foreign adversary and drew swift condemnation from across the partisan divide. - Jeremy Diamond cnn.com
Aug 2, 2018. 8 US Intelligence Groups warned Russia disrupting the US 2018 midterm elections
American intelligence agencies and both parties on Capitol Hill are in consensus that, as Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, said, “Russia conducted an unprecedented influence campaign to interfere in the U.S. electoral and political process.”
The federal and congressional intelligence and national security groups that have stated that Russia interfered in the election:
  1. Central Intelligence Agency
  2. Office of the Director of National Intelligence
  3. F.B.I.
  4. National Security Agency
  5. Justice Department
  6. Department of Homeland Security
  7. House Intelligence Committee
  8. Senate Intelligence Committee - Karen Yourish, Troy Griggs nytimes.com
Nov 1, 2018. House Intelligence Ranking Member Republican Devin Nunes was directly involved in the push for Ukraine Biden investigations by Trump associate Lev Parnas
Ed MacMahon, a lawyer for Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, who faces charges of campaign finance violations, has told the Daily Beast that his client helped Republican Rep. Devin Nunes arrange meetings meant to advance the Ukrainian investigations into the Biden family that are at the center of the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
Now, another lawyer for Parnas — Joseph A. Bondy — has told CNN that Parnas is willing to testify before the House Intelligence Committee about Nunes’s involvement in the Ukraine scandal. Nunes is the ranking member of that committee, and in that capacity has led the Republican defense of Trump during the recent public impeachment inquiry hearings. - Sean Collins vox.com
Jan 3, 2019. The Senate GOP refuses to vote for bills protecting elections from foreign interference
The second sentence of the Mueller report states clearly that “the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion.” The Senate, however, doesn’t plan to do anything about it.
According to Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), election security legislation is not on the agenda. “At this point I don’t see any likelihood that those bills would get to the floor if we mark them up,” Blunt said in a Senate Rules Committee meeting Wednesday.
...
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has insisted that he won’t even allow a vote on the bill in the Senate, describing it as a “radical, half-baked socialist proposal.” But McConnell isn’t allowing votes on any legislation. As ThinkProgress recently reported, the Senate has not considered any matters whatsoever in recent months aside from confirming President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees. - Zack Ford thinkprogress.org
Mar 1, 2019. House Intelligence Ranking Member Republican Devin Nunes called off a staff trip to Ukraine when he realized House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff would be told
An associate of Rudy Giuliani is willing to testify that Devin Nunes wanted a top aide to travel to Ukraine and interview officials in an attempt to help Donald Trump's re-election - but called off the trip when they realized Adam Schiff would be told.
Lev Parnas, a Ukraine-born businessman who was arrested trying to leave the US last month, is willing to say under oath that Nunes wanted to send Derek Harvey, a senior investigator, to Ukraine in March this year.
Once there, he would interview Ukraine’s chief anti-corruption prosecutor Nazar Kholodnytsky and a deputy in Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s office, Konstantin Kulik, about potential Democrat corruption in 2016, Parnas claimed through his lawyer.
But when Nunes, top Republican on the Intelligence Committee, realized that committee chair Schiff would be told about the trip, it was cancelled, Parnas claims.
It comes after Parnas accused Nunes of personally travelling to Vienna in 2018 as part of efforts to dig up dirt on Joe Biden - efforts that Nunes is now investigating in his role on the committee. - Chris Pleasance dailymail.co.uk
May 7, 2019 Mitch McConnell:
Case Closed
May 21, 2019. Rex Tillerson testified to the House Foreign Affairs Committee
Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson quietly slipped into the Capitol Tuesday to talk to the House Foreign Affairs Committee about the Trump administration’s interactions with Russia.
According to the Daily Beast, Tillerson arrived under a shroud of secrecy, with almost no media warning and a back entrance to the building.
During a six-hour hearing, Tillerson told the committee about how the administration actively avoided confronting Russia on their election interference in the name of establishing a rapport with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He also said that senior White House adviser Jared Kushner often undermined his attempts to brief the President on State Department policy proposals. - Kate Riga talkingpointsmemo.com
May 30, 2019. Mitch McConnell vowed to block election security bills
It’s a position that McConnell has taken before. During a hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr earlier this month, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., called out McConnell and the Trump administration for working in tandem to block the Secure Elections Act, an election security bill she co-sponsored with Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla.
Klobuchar said that the White House had called Republicans to urge them not to support the bill “and McConnell also didn’t want the bill to move forward, so it was a double-edged thing.”
Blunt this week acknowledged that it was McConnell who stopped the bill from advancing when it was mysteriously pulled just before the Rules Committee was scheduled to mark up the bill, according to Mother Jones.
Along with the Secure Elections Act, the Rules Committee has failed to take up other election security bills, including the Protecting the Right to Independent and Democratic Elections (PRIDE) Act, the Protecting American Votes and Elections (PAVE) Act, and the Honest Ads Act. All three bills were reintroduced this year after they went nowhere during the last session, Mother Jones reported.
McConnell has also refused to bring HR 1 to a vote, a sweeping set of ethics and election reforms approved by the Democratic-led House of Representatives. - Igor Derysh salon.com
Jun 3, 2019 Jared Kushner:
I don't know [if I would call the FBI if Russians asked for a meeting again during campaign season]
Jun 13, 2019 Donald Trump:
I think you might want to listen, there isn't anything wrong with listening. If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] ‘we have information on your opponent' -- oh, I think I'd want to hear it.
Jul 23, 2019 Christopher Wray:
The Russians are absolutely intent on trying to interfere with our elections
Jul 24, 2019 Robert S. Mueller III:
Based on Justice Department policy and principles of fairness, we decided we would not make a determination as to whether the President committed a crime
Jul 24, 2019 Robert S. Mueller III:
It [interference in our 2016 election] wasn’t a single attempt. They're [Russia] doing it as we sit here, and they expect to do it during the next campaign
Aug 12, 2019 Michael K. Atkinson:
In the course of my official duties, I have received information from multiple U.S. Government officials that the President of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election. This interference includes, among other things, pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of the President’s main domestic political rivals. The President’s personal lawyer, Mr. Rudolph Giuliani, is a central figure in this effort. Attorney General Barr appears to be involved as well.
Oct 3, 2019 Donald Trump:
I would think that if they [Ukraine] were honest about it, they'd start a major investigation ... they should investigate the Bidens ... China likewise should start an investigation
Oct 8, 2019 Glenn Kessler:
First of all, the evidence so far indicates there is nothing that took place in Ukraine that even begins to compare to the Russian intervention in the 2016 election. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III documented in great detail a top-down effort, initiated by Russian President Vladimir Putin, to illegally hack and release information in a deliberate attempt to meddle in the presidential election on behalf of Trump. What we have in Ukraine, so far, is just flotsam and jetsam that does not add up to state-level efforts to change the course of history.
Nov 13, 2019. The conspiracy that Ukraine interfered in the US 2016 elections has been thoroughly debunked
A discredited conspiracy theory that blames Ukraine, and not Russia, for interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election reared its head again during the first day of public impeachment hearings into President Donald Trump’s alleged attempt to pressure Ukraine into investigating a political opponent.
First, California Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, referenced it obliquely in defending Trump, saying “indications of Ukrainian election meddling” had troubled the president.
Subsequently, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs George P. Kent, under questioning, said there was “no factual basis” to any theory of Ukrainian meddling in the 2016 election — while there is ample evidence of Russian interference. - Frank Bajak apnews.com
Nov 20, 2019 Vladimir Putin:
Thank God. No one is accusing us of interfering in the U.S. elections anymore; now they’re accusing Ukraine.
Nov 21, 2019 Fiona Hill:
Based on questions and statements I have heard, some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country—and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did. This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves.
Dec 2, 2019. John Kennedy backed Russian conspiracy theory that Ukraine meddled in the US 2016 election
You'll remember that Kennedy, a Republican senator from Louisiana, got into hot water just before Thanksgiving when he claimed that it could have been Ukraine -- not Russia -- that hacked the Democratic National Committee server and released a series of emails aimed at damaging Clinton's campaign via the website WikiLeaks. Kennedy later apologized -- to CNN's Chris Cuomo -- for making that claim, acknowledging that it was the Russians who had hacked the DNC server. Case closed! Except not! - Chris Cillizza cnn.com
Dec 9, 2019. Ted Cruz backed Russian consipiracy theory that Ukraine meddled in US 2016 election
In a fiery back-and-forth on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) declared there is “considerable evidence” that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election, echoing debunked claims recently spread by other GOP leaders.
The show’s host, Chuck Todd, asked the senator if he believed Ukraine had attempted to sway the 2016 election.
“I do,” Cruz said.
Todd’s eyes grew wide and he raised his eyebrows in surprise: “You do?” - Katie Shepherd washingtonpost.com
Dec 10, 2019. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov visited Oval Office for second time since Russian election interference
President Trump is hosting Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the White House on Tuesday afternoon, in Lavrov's second Oval Office meeting with Trump. Likely topics of conversation include nuclear weapons and, a senior U.S. official said, "the state of the bilateral relationship." The last time Lavrov visited Trump in the Oval Office, Trump had just fired FBI Director James Comey and reportedly bragged that the move relieved pressure on an investigation into his campaign's ties with Russia; he also divulged highly classified intelligence from Israel with Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Americans only learned about the meeting after Russia released photos. - Peter Weber theweek.com
Dec 14, 2019. Lindsey Graham backed Russian conspiracy theory that Ukraine meddled in the US 2016 election
en. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has invited Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani to appear in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee to present information he claims to have dug up in Ukraine—even though the details of Giuliani’s self-directed investigation raise serious doubts about the credibility of any information he presents.
“Rudy, if you want to come and tell us what you found, I'll be glad to talk to you,” Graham said in an interview for CBS’ Face the Nation set to air Sunday. “I don’t know what Rudy found, I don’t know what he was up to when he was in the Ukraine.” - Will Sommer thedailybeast.com
Dec 16, 2019. The Trump Administration threatened to veto 2020 spending bill due to language requiring future release of Ukraine aid
Senior Trump administration officials in recent days threatened a presidential veto that could have led to a government shutdown if House Democrats refused to drop language requiring prompt release of future military aid for Ukraine, according to five administration and congressional officials.
The language was ultimately left out of mammoth year-end spending legislation that passed the House and Senate this week ahead of a Saturday shutdown deadline. The White House said President Trump signed the $1.4 trillion package Friday night.
The Ukraine provision was one of several items the White House drew a hard line on during negotiations to finalize the spending legislation, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the developments. It would have required the White House to swiftly release $250 million in defense money for Ukraine that was part of the spending package. - Erica Werner washingtonpost.com
Dec 21, 2019. The Trump Administration opposed bipartisan Senate bill countering Russian aggression because the bill required the administration to report Russian election meddling
The Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act of 2019 (DASKA) would impose sanctions on Russian oligarchs, banks and sovereign debt. The bill would also sanction Russian ship-building and energy industries. The legislation also requires the State Department and Intelligence Community to report to Congress whether Russia is meddling in U.S. elections every 90 days.
Though the bill has drawn bipartisan support, the Trump administration sent a 22-page letter to Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Jim Risch, R-Idaho, saying that it “strongly opposes” the bill in its current form. The letter was first obtained by The Daily Beast.
The letter took issue with the bill’s requirement for the administration to report Russian election meddling. - Igor Derysh salon.com
Feb 3, 2020. Graham pledged upcoming investigations into Hunter Biden
Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham said Sunday that he and other Republicans will begin calling witnesses within weeks for hearings related to Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine, as well as the FBI’s surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
“We’re going to get to the bottom of this,” Graham pledged in an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” - Chuck Ross dailysignal.com
Feb 5, 2020. Barr imposed restrictions that all investigations into 2020 candidates must be cleared by top DOJ officials
Attorney General William P. Barr issued new restrictions on Wednesday over the opening of politically sensitive investigations, an effort meant to avoid upending the presidential election as the F.B.I. inadvertently did in 2016 when its campaign inquiries shaped the outcome of the race.
...
No investigation into a presidential or vice-presidential candidate — or their senior campaign staff or advisers — can begin without written notification to the Justice Department and the written approval of Mr. Barr.
...
The F.B.I. must also notify and consult with the relevant leaders at the department — like the heads of the criminal division, the national security division or a United States attorney’s office — before investigating Senate or House candidates or their campaigns, or opening an inquiry related to “illegal contributions, donations or expenditures by foreign nationals to a presidential or congressional campaign.”
...
But Mr. Barr is the first to require that the F.B.I. consult with the Justice Department before opening politically charged investigations.
...
The requirements in the memo are to remain in effect through the 2020 elections. After that, the department will study whether the changes were necessary. - Katie Benner nytimes.com
Feb 9, 2020. Bill Barr streamlined the passing of Biden dirt regarding Ukraine from Giuliani directly to the Department of Justice
"The Department of Justice is receiving information coming out of the Ukraine from Rudy," Graham, of South Carolina, said on "Face the Nation."
"[Attorney General Bill Barr] told me that they have created a process that Rudy could give information and they would see if it's verified. Rudy Giuliani is a well known man. He's a crime fighter. He's loyal to the president. He's a good lawyer. But what I'm trying to say- to the president and anybody else, that the Russians are still up to it. Deterrence is not working. So let's look at Hunter Biden's conflict. Let's look at Joe Biden. Vice President Biden, what did you do when they told you your son was on Burisma's board? It undercuts your ability to fight corruption. Did you take it seriously? Obviously he didn't. But when it comes to documents coming out of the Ukraine, to Republicans and Democrats, be very cautious turning anything over you got over to the intel community" - Melissa Quinn cbsnews.com
Feb 11, 2020. Trump re-tweeted propaganda attempting to tie Mitt Romney to Ukraine's Burisma
One of the posts the president retweeted was a meme that makes the unfounded claim “Romney’s son” — as well as the sons of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Secretary of State John Kerry — “are all on the board of directors for energy companies doing business in Ukraine.” We looked into those assertions in October and found no evidence that any of those political leaders’ sons worked for energy companies based in, or “doing business in,” Ukraine.
Romney has five sons, who work in finance, real estate and radiology, as we explained. The senator’s office declined to comment when we wrote that story, saying only that the claims were “fake news from random online trolls.”
...
Trump also retweeted a post from the conservative site Big League Politics, which claims Romney is “tied” to Burisma because a former adviser to his 2012 presidential campaign was on the company’s board. That’s an awfully thin “tie.”
The linked story, posted in September, notes that Joseph Cofer Black — a “special adviser” under the Romney campaign’s foreign policy and national security team — joined the Burisma board in 2017. Black, a former director of the CIA’s counterterrorist center and State Department coordinator for counterterrorism who served under both the George W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations, did join the Burisma board in 2017, as reported in the Kyiv Post.
This is a classic guilt-by-association claim. There’s no evidence Romney had anything to do with Black getting a position on Burisma’s board five years after his presidential campaign. Black was one of 24 special advisers to the campaign on foreign policy and national security. - Lori Robertson factcheck.org
Feb 15, 2020. Pompeo held undisclosed meeting with Russian diplomat
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a security conference in Munich on Friday that the State Department did not publicly disclose before nor after the fact.
Politico reported that the two diplomats met in Lavrov’s meeting room at the hotel in which the conference took place.
Maria Zakharova, Lavrov’s spokesperson, posted about the meeting on Facebook and included a photo of Pompeo in the hotel hallway with Lavrov and others.
Zakharova wrote in the post that Pompeo had wished the people in the hallway “good luck,” according to Politico’s translation.
“There are few to whom Americans now wish something good,” she reportedly wrote.
The State Department did not list the meeting in its official schedule of Pompeo’s travels from February 13-22 and did not provide a readout for it. - Cristina Cabrera talkingpointsmemo.com
Apr 24, 2020 Henry Olson:
[Biden’s accusation that Trump would try to delay the 2020 election] was not only clearly over the line but also unmasks how low the supposedly moderate Biden will go to win. . . . This rhetoric is both unfounded and harmful to democracy. Trump has not done anything that a hopeful dictator would do, such as restrict press freedom, curtail political activity or arrest political opponents.

Devin Nunes arrange meetings meant to advance the Ukrainian investigations into the Biden family that are at the center of the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
Now, another lawyer for Parnas — Joseph A. Bondy — has told CNN that Parnas is willing to testify before the House Intelligence Committee about Nunes’s involvement in the Ukraine scandal. Nunes is the ranking member of that committee, and in that capacity has led the Republican defense of Trump during the recent public impeachment inquiry hearings. - Sean Collins vox.com
Jan 3, 2019. The Senate GOP refuses to vote for bills protecting elections from foreign interference
The second sentence of the Mueller report states clearly that “the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion.” The Senate, however, doesn’t plan to do anything about it.
According to Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), election security legislation is not on the agenda. “At this point I don’t see any likelihood that those bills would get to the floor if we mark them up,” Blunt said in a Senate Rules Committee meeting Wednesday.
...
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has insisted that he won’t even allow a vote on the bill in the Senate, describing it as a “radical, half-baked socialist proposal.” But McConnell isn’t allowing votes on any legislation. As ThinkProgress recently reported, the Senate has not considered any matters whatsoever in recent months aside from confirming President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees. - Zack Ford thinkprogress.org
Mar 1, 2019. House Intelligence Ranking Member Republican Devin Nunes called off a staff trip to Ukraine when he realized House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff would be told
An associate of Rudy Giuliani is willing to testify that Devin Nunes wanted a top aide to travel to Ukraine and interview officials in an attempt to help Donald Trump's re-election - but called off the trip when they realized Adam Schiff would be told.
Lev Parnas, a Ukraine-born businessman who was arrested trying to leave the US last month, is willing to say under oath that Nunes wanted to send Derek Harvey, a senior investigator, to Ukraine in March this year.
Once there, he would interview Ukraine’s chief anti-corruption prosecutor Nazar Kholodnytsky and a deputy in Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s office, Konstantin Kulik, about potential Democrat corruption in 2016, Parnas claimed through his lawyer.
But when Nunes, top Republican on the Intelligence Committee, realized that committee chair Schiff would be told about the trip, it was cancelled, Parnas claims.
It comes after Parnas accused Nunes of personally travelling to Vienna in 2018 as part of efforts to dig up dirt on Joe Biden - efforts that Nunes is now investigating in his role on the committee. - Chris Pleasance dailymail.co.uk
May 7, 2019 Mitch McConnell:
Case Closed
May 21, 2019. Rex Tillerson testified to the House Foreign Affairs Committee
Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson quietly slipped into the Capitol Tuesday to talk to the House Foreign Affairs Committee about the Trump administration’s interactions with Russia.
According to the Daily Beast, Tillerson arrived under a shroud of secrecy, with almost no media warning and a back entrance to the building.
During a six-hour hearing, Tillerson told the committee about how the administration actively avoided confronting Russia on their election interference in the name of establishing a rapport with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He also said that senior White House adviser Jared Kushner often undermined his attempts to brief the President on State Department policy proposals. - Kate Riga talkingpointsmemo.com
May 30, 2019. Mitch McConnell vowed to block election security bills
It’s a position that McConnell has taken before. During a hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr earlier this month, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., called out McConnell and the Trump administration for working in tandem to block the Secure Elections Act, an election security bill she co-sponsored with Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla.
Klobuchar said that the White House had called Republicans to urge them not to support the bill “and McConnell also didn’t want the bill to move forward, so it was a double-edged thing.”
Blunt this week acknowledged that it was McConnell who stopped the bill from advancing when it was mysteriously pulled just before the Rules Committee was scheduled to mark up the bill, according to Mother Jones.
Along with the Secure Elections Act, the Rules Committee has failed to take up other election security bills, including the Protecting the Right to Independent and Democratic Elections (PRIDE) Act, the Protecting American Votes and Elections (PAVE) Act, and the Honest Ads Act. All three bills were reintroduced this year after they went nowhere during the last session, Mother Jones reported.
McConnell has also refused to bring HR 1 to a vote, a sweeping set of ethics and election reforms approved by the Democratic-led House of Representatives. - Igor Derysh salon.com
Jun 3, 2019 Jared Kushner:
I don't know [if I would call the FBI if Russians asked for a meeting again during campaign season]
Jun 13, 2019 Donald Trump:
I think you might want to listen, there isn't anything wrong with listening. If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] ‘we have information on your opponent' -- oh, I think I'd want to hear it.
Jul 23, 2019 Christopher Wray:
The Russians are absolutely intent on trying to interfere with our elections
Jul 24, 2019 Robert S. Mueller III:
Based on Justice Department policy and principles of fairness, we decided we would not make a determination as to whether the President committed a crime
Jul 24, 2019 Robert S. Mueller III:
It [interference in our 2016 election] wasn’t a single attempt. They're [Russia] doing it as we sit here, and they expect to do it during the next campaign
Aug 12, 2019 Michael K. Atkinson:
In the course of my official duties, I have received information from multiple U.S. Government officials that the President of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election. This interference includes, among other things, pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of the President’s main domestic political rivals. The President’s personal lawyer, Mr. Rudolph Giuliani, is a central figure in this effort. Attorney General Barr appears to be involved as well.
Oct 3, 2019 Donald Trump:
I would think that if they [Ukraine] were honest about it, they'd start a major investigation ... they should investigate the Bidens ... China likewise should start an investigation
Oct 8, 2019 Glenn Kessler:
First of all, the evidence so far indicates there is nothing that took place in Ukraine that even begins to compare to the Russian intervention in the 2016 election. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III documented in great detail a top-down effort, initiated by Russian President Vladimir Putin, to illegally hack and release information in a deliberate attempt to meddle in the presidential election on behalf of Trump. What we have in Ukraine, so far, is just flotsam and jetsam that does not add up to state-level efforts to change the course of history.
Nov 13, 2019. The conspiracy that Ukraine interfered in the US 2016 elections has been thoroughly debunked
A discredited conspiracy theory that blames Ukraine, and not Russia, for interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election reared its head again during the first day of public impeachment hearings into President Donald Trump’s alleged attempt to pressure Ukraine into investigating a political opponent.
First, California Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, referenced it obliquely in defending Trump, saying “indications of Ukrainian election meddling” had troubled the president.
Subsequently, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs George P. Kent, under questioning, said there was “no factual basis” to any theory of Ukrainian meddling in the 2016 election — while there is ample evidence of Russian interference. - Frank Bajak apnews.com
Nov 20, 2019 Vladimir Putin:
Thank God. No one is accusing us of interfering in the U.S. elections anymore; now they’re accusing Ukraine.
Nov 21, 2019 Fiona Hill:
Based on questions and statements I have heard, some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country—and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did. This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves.
Dec 2, 2019. John Kennedy backed Russian conspiracy theory that Ukraine meddled in the US 2016 election
You'll remember that Kennedy, a Republican senator from Louisiana, got into hot water just before Thanksgiving when he claimed that it could have been Ukraine -- not Russia -- that hacked the Democratic National Committee server and released a series of emails aimed at damaging Clinton's campaign via the website WikiLeaks. Kennedy later apologized -- to CNN's Chris Cuomo -- for making that claim, acknowledging that it was the Russians who had hacked the DNC server. Case closed! Except not! - Chris Cillizza cnn.com
Dec 9, 2019. Ted Cruz backed Russian consipiracy theory that Ukraine meddled in US 2016 election
In a fiery back-and-forth on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) declared there is “considerable evidence” that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election, echoing debunked claims recently spread by other GOP leaders.
The show’s host, Chuck Todd, asked the senator if he believed Ukraine had attempted to sway the 2016 election.
“I do,” Cruz said.
Todd’s eyes grew wide and he raised his eyebrows in surprise: “You do?” - Katie Shepherd washingtonpost.com
Dec 10, 2019. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov visited Oval Office for second time since Russian election interference
President Trump is hosting Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the White House on Tuesday afternoon, in Lavrov's second Oval Office meeting with Trump. Likely topics of conversation include nuclear weapons and, a senior U.S. official said, "the state of the bilateral relationship." The last time Lavrov visited Trump in the Oval Office, Trump had just fired FBI Director James Comey and reportedly bragged that the move relieved pressure on an investigation into his campaign's ties with Russia; he also divulged highly classified intelligence from Israel with Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Americans only learned about the meeting after Russia released photos. - Peter Weber theweek.com
Dec 14, 2019. Lindsey Graham backed Russian conspiracy theory that Ukraine meddled in the US 2016 election
en. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has invited Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani to appear in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee to present information he claims to have dug up in Ukraine—even though the details of Giuliani’s self-directed investigation raise serious doubts about the credibility of any information he presents.
“Rudy, if you want to come and tell us what you found, I'll be glad to talk to you,” Graham said in an interview for CBS’ Face the Nation set to air Sunday. “I don’t know what Rudy found, I don’t know what he was up to when he was in the Ukraine.” - Will Sommer thedailybeast.com
Dec 16, 2019. The Trump Administration threatened to veto 2020 spending bill due to language requiring future release of Ukraine aid
Senior Trump administration officials in recent days threatened a presidential veto that could have led to a government shutdown if House Democrats refused to drop language requiring prompt release of future military aid for Ukraine, according to five administration and congressional officials.
The language was ultimately left out of mammoth year-end spending legislation that passed the House and Senate this week ahead of a Saturday shutdown deadline. The White House said President Trump signed the $1.4 trillion package Friday night.
The Ukraine provision was one of several items the White House drew a hard line on during negotiations to finalize the spending legislation, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the developments. It would have required the White House to swiftly release $250 million in defense money for Ukraine that was part of the spending package. - Erica Werner washingtonpost.com
Dec 21, 2019. The Trump Administration opposed bipartisan Senate bill countering Russian aggression because the bill required the administration to report Russian election meddling
The Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act of 2019 (DASKA) would impose sanctions on Russian oligarchs, banks and sovereign debt. The bill would also sanction Russian ship-building and energy industries. The legislation also requires the State Department and Intelligence Community to report to Congress whether Russia is meddling in U.S. elections every 90 days.
Though the bill has drawn bipartisan support, the Trump administration sent a 22-page letter to Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Jim Risch, R-Idaho, saying that it “strongly opposes” the bill in its current form. The letter was first obtained by The Daily Beast.
The letter took issue with the bill’s requirement for the administration to report Russian election meddling. - Igor Derysh salon.com
Feb 3, 2020. Graham pledged upcoming investigations into Hunter Biden
Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham said Sunday that he and other Republicans will begin calling witnesses within weeks for hearings related to Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine, as well as the FBI’s surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
“We’re going to get to the bottom of this,” Graham pledged in an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” - Chuck Ross dailysignal.com
Feb 5, 2020. Barr imposed restrictions that all investigations into 2020 candidates must be cleared by top DOJ officials
Attorney General William P. Barr issued new restrictions on Wednesday over the opening of politically sensitive investigations, an effort meant to avoid upending the presidential election as the F.B.I. inadvertently did in 2016 when its campaign inquiries shaped the outcome of the race.
...
No investigation into a presidential or vice-presidential candidate — or their senior campaign staff or advisers — can begin without written notification to the Justice Department and the written approval of Mr. Barr.
...
The F.B.I. must also notify and consult with the relevant leaders at the department — like the heads of the criminal division, the national security division or a United States attorney’s office — before investigating Senate or House candidates or their campaigns, or opening an inquiry related to “illegal contributions, donations or expenditures by foreign nationals to a presidential or congressional campaign.”
...
But Mr. Barr is the first to require that the F.B.I. consult with the Justice Department before opening politically charged investigations.
...
The requirements in the memo are to remain in effect through the 2020 elections. After that, the department will study whether the changes were necessary. - Katie Benner nytimes.com
Feb 9, 2020. Bill Barr streamlined the passing of Biden dirt regarding Ukraine from Giuliani directly to the Department of Justice
"The Department of Justice is receiving information coming out of the Ukraine from Rudy," Graham, of South Carolina, said on "Face the Nation."
"[Attorney General Bill Barr] told me that they have created a process that Rudy could give information and they would see if it's verified. Rudy Giuliani is a well known man. He's a crime fighter. He's loyal to the president. He's a good lawyer. But what I'm trying to say- to the president and anybody else, that the Russians are still up to it. Deterrence is not working. So let's look at Hunter Biden's conflict. Let's look at Joe Biden. Vice President Biden, what did you do when they told you your son was on Burisma's board? It undercuts your ability to fight corruption. Did you take it seriously? Obviously he didn't. But when it comes to documents coming out of the Ukraine, to Republicans and Democrats, be very cautious turning anything over you got over to the intel community" - Melissa Quinn cbsnews.com
Feb 11, 2020. Trump re-tweeted propaganda attempting to tie Mitt Romney to Ukraine's Burisma
One of the posts the president retweeted was a meme that makes the unfounded claim “Romney’s son” — as well as the sons of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Secretary of State John Kerry — “are all on the board of directors for energy companies doing business in Ukraine.” We looked into those assertions in October and found no evidence that any of those political leaders’ sons worked for energy companies based in, or “doing business in,” Ukraine.
Romney has five sons, who work in finance, real estate and radiology, as we explained. The senator’s office declined to comment when we wrote that story, saying only that the claims were “fake news from random online trolls.”
...
Trump also retweeted a post from the conservative site Big League Politics, which claims Romney is “tied” to Burisma because a former adviser to his 2012 presidential campaign was on the company’s board. That’s an awfully thin “tie.”
The linked story, posted in September, notes that Joseph Cofer Black — a “special adviser” under the Romney campaign’s foreign policy and national security team — joined the Burisma board in 2017. Black, a former director of the CIA’s counterterrorist center and State Department coordinator for counterterrorism who served under both the George W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations, did join the Burisma board in 2017, as reported in the Kyiv Post.
This is a classic guilt-by-association claim. There’s no evidence Romney had anything to do with Black getting a position on Burisma’s board five years after his presidential campaign. Black was one of 24 special advisers to the campaign on foreign policy and national security. - Lori Robertson factcheck.org
Feb 15, 2020. Pompeo held undisclosed meeting with Russian diplomat
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a security conference in Munich on Friday that the State Department did not publicly disclose before nor after the fact.
Politico reported that the two diplomats met in Lavrov’s meeting room at the hotel in which the conference took place.
Maria Zakharova, Lavrov’s spokesperson, posted about the meeting on Facebook and included a photo of Pompeo in the hotel hallway with Lavrov and others.
Zakharova wrote in the post that Pompeo had wished the people in the hallway “good luck,” according to Politico’s translation.
“There are few to whom Americans now wish something good,” she reportedly wrote.
The State Department did not list the meeting in its official schedule of Pompeo’s travels from February 13-22 and did not provide a readout for it. - Cristina Cabrera talkingpointsmemo.com
Apr 24, 2020 Henry Olson:
[Biden’s accusation that Trump would try to delay the 2020 election] was not only clearly over the line but also unmasks how low the supposedly moderate Biden will go to win. . . . This rhetoric is both unfounded and harmful to democracy. Trump has not done anything that a hopeful dictator would do, such as restrict press freedom, curtail political activity or arrest political opponents.

2020.04.20 06:37 WizenedPoptropica I think self-isolation is messing with my sister?

I’m not actually sure if worried is the right word to use here, but I know I’m scared for her, and I don’t know what to do?
So context, everything that’s been worrying me about my sister started about two weeks into our covid-19 quarantine period. around the start of this whole lockdown, I had a mental list of all the people I knew it would be rough on. I knew I’d be fine, I have my husband Jason and my teenage son Lee. I knew it would be rough on all my single friends, especially the ones without animals to keep them company, and I knew it would be rough on Lee because he can’t see his boyfriend. I didn’t entirely anticipate how rough it would be on my sister though, but I guess it makes sense.
My sister Amy lives with her son James who’s about eight I think? She also lives with their new puppy Fraggle. She works from home in this big rented house deep in suburbia. The house has this enormous vaulted ceiling and enough backyard space to comfortably fit a hot tub and a fire pit. Their basement is finished (which isn’t exactly a feat but since my basement isn’t, it feels impressive) and decked out with a game room, and they’ve got two fully furnished guest rooms. Honestly, the house feels way too big for just her and James, even if it’s just a rental, but I guess that might be why the isolation was getting to her.
In the second week of the lockdown, I was browsing my facebook to see if anyone was being all sad in their feed, and lo and behold, among all my sad 40s somethings friends without people to talk to, was Amy. The post looked something like, “second week of lockdown! Already losing it with the kid! Could use some kind of care package right now haha!” followed by a selfie of her bright face with her son sitting next to her. Being the cool sister I am, I of course offered in the comments to bring over some bread Lee had baked and stand a safe six feet away to offer some irl words of comfort. She thanked me for the offer and told me she’d be waiting for me. In ten minutes I was out the door and headed to my sister’s house.
When I got there and she opened the door, I saw just how rough this whole quarantine was on her. Her eyes had these deep bags like she hadn’t had a real night’s sleep in forever, and she looked frazzled beyond belief. She was wearing her pyjamas and they looked like she’d spilled a whole mug of coffee on them a day ago and just never changed. As she looked at me in the doorway, she swayed a little where she stood, again, like she hadn’t properly slept in days. Compared to the lively picture she’d posted only an hour prior, she looked like in the hour since I last saw her face, she’d contracted the virus herself or something. Though Amy definitely looked worse for wear, she lit up when she saw me and moved towards me for a hug before remembering that was off the table.
“Willow! Gosh it’s only been two weeks since this whole thing started but it feels like forever. How’ve you been? How’s Jason doing?” she asked. Her voice sounded just as tired as she looked and I gave a polite smile.
“It’s been alright, Lee’s losing his mind but Jason has been having a time getting caught up in his online studies, overall fine,” I responded, “You look a little uh… down though. How are you doing?” She smiled and waved her hand in the so-so motion.
“Hanging in there, hanging in there,” she shifted a bit and leaned against the door, “with the whole self-isolation thing, I feel like I can’t get anything done y’know? The house hasn’t been cleaned since it started and it isn’t getting cleaned anytime soon lemme tell ya,” she said. As she shifted in the doorway, I got a glance at the inside of the house and she was absolutely right.
Her son James looked like he’d become a hurricane and just tore the place apart with his toys, there was some perishable food left on the counter in a small pile by the fridge, it looked like every time they’d gone to eat they’d just put new plates on top of the old dirty ones, and the dog’s food bowl was overflowing like they’d just dumped two days worth to keep the pup occupied. It was objectively, a disaster, but I just kinda wrinkled my nose and gave a sympathetic look.
We talked a bit more, I asked what James was doing and she just told me he was getting cooped up in his room. I asked how Fraggle was doing and she told me he was cooped up with James.
That was the bulk of the first visit. There have been multiple since and this is kinda where my worry stems from.
The second time I went to visit was about a week later. She’d “sadposted” as my son called it, another captioned picture, this time with her and James outside, and she looked just as bright as she had in the previous photo from her previous post. I figured if I was going to check on anyone this quarantine, it would be one of my siblings. When I got there, Amy looked worse.
Her kinda tired-looking eyes from before, looked less like she had just gotten a bad night’s sleep, and more like she’d just not slept altogether, and on top of that, her eyes just looked dull like they’d lost half their colour, going from a pale green to a dull blue. Her brown hair looked unwashed and was in the same ponytail as before, though this time she almost looked like she’d had a few extra grey hairs. She was wearing the exact same outfit she’d been wearing the last time I saw her, and from the looks of it, it had acquired more stains. Her frazzled look from before had shifted to a kind of wide-eyed alertness, which I noticed as soon as she opened the door, but when she saw me, her dull eyes lit up again and she stepped closer, a good fiveish feet away from me.
“Willow,” she said, “good to see you! The bread Lee made was delicious, you’d think I never feed him James ate it up so fast, So, how’re you doing? How’s Lee, how’s Jason?” she asked, and I smiled politely. We had a nice short conversation about how life’s been going in quarantine, how our kids are losing their minds, etc. At one point I mentioned that she looked like she’d gone through hell and she kinda frowned and looked down at herself, and that was the first time I got a look over her head to see the house for the second time in two weeks.
Last time I saw it, the house looked awful, but nothing more than what a few of my exes’ homes looked like. This time? I damn near gagged. The food on the counter from before was still there, and since the last time I saw it, it had begun to rot and fester. The plates that had been left on the table had piled even higher, and on the lower levels of plates I noticed that the food that hadn’t been cleaned off had started to mold. The dog's food bowl was bone dry but some of the food that had been on the counter looked like it had fallen off to feed Fraggle. James’ toys were still scattered around, and while they were far from the most upsetting thing in the room, I noticed that some of them looked like they’d been torn apart by hand. When Amy looked back up after dusting herself off, I’d only gotten a glance at the house but I’m pretty sure the shock was visible on my face. She frowned again.
“Well uh, I can see why you think I look a little rough, but that’s mostly just quarantine getting me down. I’ll wear actual clothes next time you come over okay? Also uh, you good? You look like you’ve seen a ghost,” she said. I shook my head a little to right myself and smiled.
“Ha yeah no I’m alright. Uh it’s just, I’m worried about you Ams…” I said, shifting myself to block any view of the house. Her frown deepened.
“Hm. Well, I’m worried about you too Will, but we’re all going to get out of this together, and there’s no need to worry, okay? She said. After a brief pause, I nodded.
“Yeah. Yeah we will. Anyway, I’ve gotta head out. Good luck with quarantine responsibilities, and uh, not to sound rude but you should get to cleaning your house soon,” I said, turning back around to my car and waving. Before I got off the porch though, I heard her laugh behind me and say,
“Uh alright? Thought I cleaned it yesterday but sure, I’ll get to the nooks and crannies.”
This marked the first time I was really actually worried for my sister. I think when I got home I actually ended up calling our brother Pete to ask if he and Amy had video chatted recently, and if she’d seemed off. Specifically I asked him if her house looked a little messy, and tried to play it off as a joke. Strangely enough he told me her place was immaculate? He also told me she looked fine, in fact according to him, Amy was thriving. That talk kinda put me off but I decided that even with her kinda odd behaviour, I wasn’t going to stop seeing my sister. She needed a friendly face through all this, plus she hadn’t even been acting that odd, it was just her house and appearance that was putting me off. So I kept going to her house once a week and well, she kept getting worse.
The third week I visited, I didn’t get a view of the inside of her house, because she closed the door behind herself to step outside, three feet away from me. She stayed true to her joke promise to wear “actual clothes”, but it didn’t ease my worry. The button-up shirt she wore kinda hung off her in a weird way like she’d very suddenly lost weight. Her eyes were even duller and her skin looked almost sickly. Since I’d last seen her, she didn’t look like she’d showered and her hair was still in that loose ponytail. Our conversation was short, I brought up again how much she was worrying me, and once again she brushed me off. I left sooner than usual and let her know I’d be back the next week.
These past three weeks I have visited her every Tuesday. Every week she got worse. Her skin progressively got more pale and sallow, her blue eyes started to look almost like they were losing all their colour, her hair was getting stringy and gaining more grey hairs every week, at that point the week before the last visit, she looked like a whole other woman. Every time I alluded to this or pointed it out, she said she was fine, and every time I got home, I convinced myself nothing was wrong with her. Hell, the night before the last time I checked up on her, I checked her facebook to see how she was doing, and in the picture she posted with her son and her dog, she looked perfectly healthy! So it must’ve just been my imagination! Whenever I went to her house, we talked on the porch, roughly three feet away which isn’t the distance suggested but, we’re family, it’s fine! I hadn’t seen the inside of the house since that second week but I was sure she’d taken my advice and cleaned! I decided to make this post when I visited her just yesterday to deliver some bread my son had made.
When I got there, she looked as awful as ever. Hair hanging in thin stringy bits around her sickly pale face, blue eyes sunken into her head, same outfit I saw her in the third week, still hanging off her frame in a strange way, and swaying like a leaf in the wind as she stared at me, only three feet away on the porch.
Like always, I told her that quarantine has been treating her rough, and she laughed it off. She noticed the bread in my hands, and in her voice, that I’d never noticed had been this gravelly, asked,
“Is that another one of Lee’s gifts? I’ll bring it inside and have James find a spot for it.” And before I could think about what that entailed, she opened the door, and I nearly vomited.
The rotten food from earlier was smeared all over the kitchen floor. Rotten milk and eggs looked like it had been used as the base for the horrid portrait painted on the ground of the kitchen. The plates were still piled high on the kitchen table, but some from the bottom layers had been swapped out and shattered on the ground amongst the toys, still covered with mould and now spreading to the floorboards. Amy took the bakes bread and walked with her bare feet across the shattered pottery and destroyed plastic toys like it was nothing. That’s not even mentioning the smell, which alone was enough to make my eyes water. It was like rotting flesh and burning hair, and I was surprised I hadn’t managed to smell it from outside. Amy stood in the middle of the foyer, on the sharp plastic toys and shattered ceramic, and called for her son, who I realized I hadn’t seen at all since I first started visiting.
“James! Aunt Willow brought bread from your favourite babysitter! Wanna come help momma put it away!” she yelled up the stairs. I stood frozen, and when she looked back over her shoulder at me, she didn’t seem to notice my horrified expression and smiled. It was then that I heard a thumping, as James flew down the stairs.
James had always been a naturally thin young man, he inherited his dad’s frame as my family definitely didn’t have a record for that, but when he came down, the boy was purely skin and bones. James flew down the stairs like he grew wings, and nearly came crashing down the last step, and I saw an emaciated shell of the kid he once was. He leaped up to his mother’s arms and grabbed the bread with both hands, running back off up the stairs as soon as he got it, and all the way I could hear the sound of his grabbing clumps of the bread and stuffing his face ravenously. Amy simply smiled, and turned back towards me, unresponsive to my shocked and horrified expression.
“Such a handful that kid is,” she said, walking closer and closing the door on the nightmarish sight inside once more. She walked closer towards me, until she was four feet, three feet, two feet, one foot, away, and grabbed my shoulder in a gesture that would’ve been comforting any other time, from any other person. I wanted to walk away and go back to the car, but I was frozen. “I’m so glad you’ve come to visit me so often Will, things really do get lonely with just me and James and you've really helped. Can’t wait to see you again next week! Remember, we’ll all get through this together,” and with that, she walked back to the doorway, opened the door to the smell and the wreck, and closed it behind her. Needless to say I’ve never gone back home so fast.
So, what do I do? I’m scared and I don’t know what’s going on and I don’t want to lose Amy, she’s the only one of my relatives I can stand and I’m scared for James and I’m just… scared. I haven’t even told Jason what happened. If you have any advice please let me know.

2020.03.25 13:38 Wolf1678 Preacher’s wife

This happened some time ago in Nashville. I was a single guy in my early 20s, working and doing okay. I had a roommate that wasn’t a bad guy, but he had some anger issues and apparently that kept him from having a girlfriend for very long.
While I worked a lot. I was also the most active musically at the time in three different bands. One straight ahead rock band, one punk band and then an acoustic duo with my roommate on open mic nights specifically to get that tip jar money and free beer.
At the time I was involved with a few women. One of which still perplexes me. All the ingredients were there for great sex, but it was never great or good or even serviceable. There was just an odd lack of chemistry that I had not experienced before. This story isn’t about her or our unenthusiastic sex.
This story is about Hannah. So you’ve heard the term “you can’t turn a white I to a housewife?” Well my front door neighbor in my apartment complex was this preacher. Friendly enough black guy, but everything about him screamed out hustler preacher. The kind of guy that passes out the collection plate before you even sit down. I’ve been a non-believer most of my life so these type of guys are just con artists with a captive audience to me.
About 3 months into living at this apartment I’ve had women coming in and out and I did get around. Even fucking the lead guitarist in my primary band before she settle down and got married. I even fucked my roommate’s ex in the ass after a night of drinking. Apparently he passed out when they were having sex and she still needed to get off and she considered anal not cheating. Her name was Hannah too, but for the purposes of this story she is Hannah1.
I had never seen the preacher have any visitors at his apartment. The one day as I’m leaving the apartment to take out the trash his door opens at the same time and I’m thinking I have to go through the fake pleasantries again. Rather than the preacher some out it was this skinny white girl with a pretty face, green eyes and short, mouse brown hair. First thought was, “Oh damn. Preacher finally got laid. About damn time.”
Then the preacher comes out behind her and I give him a proud knowing look. He introduces her as Hannah, his wife.
Wife? I thought to myself I didn’t even know he was married. Granted I never looked to see if he had a wedding band in or not. Simple introductions and he tells me they have been together since high school, but there was a tension there I couldn’t pin point at the time.
We walked out into the parking lot together and parted ways as I took the trash to the dumpster while they got into his Honda and left. Hannah was a cute girl and something told me her nerdy looks hid something. I found out later what it was.
Whenever I was home alone and Hannah was too she started to come over for visits and join me for a couple beers and listening to music. She knew the preacher’s schedule so well she knew when she had to leave so he wouldn’t suspect she was hanging out with me. The way she was so sneaky let me know real quick she had done this before.
Over a couple months of us hanging out she told me a little bit about her past. She was kind of a wild girl in her home town until she met the preacher when they were both still in high school. He helped her settle down, but she still cheated on him a lot with the more thuggish guys. Eventually they got married and she stopped fucking around for a bit, but she slipped up and got caught fucking one of her female best friends in their home town and it became a scandal.
They moved around and eventually she moved back in with her folks while he came to Nashville to be a youth pastopreacher. I think she though they were moving towards a divorce, but he forgave her and eventually she moved to be with him again. Obviously her inclination for seeing other people was still there otherwise she wouldn’t always be hanging out with me when he was doing youth pastor stuff or at the church doing whatever they do.
My roommate didn’t like where this was going. He was nominally a Christian, but like most Americans it’s just a name and not a practice.
So let me fast forward to the weekend Hannah and I started to hook up. It spiraled into some crazy shit, but the first weekend is what this story is about. Her husband was volunteered, see assigned, to help the older preachers run a weekend men’s retreat or something rather. I interpreted it as a bunch of dudes talking about Bible fairytales in the woods for a weekend.
Friday night my rock band had a gig and my friend Amy said after the show she wants me to fuck her since she finally got the permission from her husband to go raw with me since all our tests came back negative for STIs. Saturday was going to be a recovery day.
Show wraps up. Amy comes back to my apartment and we fuck like it was the last night we would see each other and I came inside of her raw for the first time. So much more satisfying than condoms. I had not gotten a vasectomy yet, but this was when the Depo shot was gaining popularity. She needed to be home to have breakfast for her husband and daughter so I walked her out around 4am.
As I’m walking back up the stairs to my apartment I smell weed in the air and I can see where it’s coming from. The half balcony from the preacher’s apartment and I see Hannah. I give her the “what’s up” nod and head to my door when her door opens up and she asks me if she can come over for a beer and I can tell her about that woman that just left.
I was exhausted. I had worked, then had to haul my gear to the gig. Play a 45 minute set in what felt like a furnace before fucking my friend Amy like she owned me money. I had cum at least three times. I was not in the mood to chit chat, but I can tell she needed company so I let her in and I turned on the living room TV and put in a movie. I think it was Dirty Work. Horrible movie. Just awful, but it can play in the background so I wouldn’t be distracted from the conversation I could tell Hanna needed.
At the time I was only wearing a pair of baggy shorts. I sat in the couch and she came back from the fridge with two Bud lights. Those were my roommates beers, but I wasn’t going to have her go back.
She sits down closer to me with her legs folded under her and and asks me how my night was. I let her know that the woman was Amy and she’s my married friend that her husband approved for her to fuck while he was deployed. I’m no Jodi. She asked me if I felt guilty fucking a married woman.
I was not and never have been. I would prefer he husband to be aware and approve of what’s going down because I’ve had to fight a man naked when discovered with his wife. She never told me he didn’t know. She kept saying she was in an open marriage. Apparently she was in in open marriage without telling him about it.
She tells me she used to be wild when she was younger. “Younger”is relative because she was 22. By then I’m nodding off and I tell her I’m going to lay down. She welcome to crash on the couch or head back to her apartment just make sure she turns the knob lock so the door locks behind her when she leaves.
As I headed back to bed I get out of my shorts and swing the bedroom door closed behind and lay down doing my best to avoid the wet spots on the bed. I was too tired to change the sheets. I heard the knob turn and the door creak open and Hannah is just standing at my door way looking at me and then she walks in taking off her oversized shirt and her tiny panties climbing into bed with me. She is so aggressive coming at me like that I wasn’t expecting it.
She had a small frame and petite in so many ways almost pixie like she took her glasses off and put them on my night stand in a smooth motion and we started making out. She was definitely the aggressor in this situation. I could still taste the beer and weed on her breath and she smelled slightly of vanilla which is a sexual trigger for me since high school when I dated a girl that loved to bake.
I should have been too tired to play, but my cock was already hard. I was on my back and she was leaned over me kissing me. One hand was holding the back of my head and the other was spreading the precum from my cock head to the rest of my shaft. Every time I tried to sit up so I could be more aggressive she would resist me enough that I didn’t want to put forth the effort. I really don’t like feeling submissive, but this was not bad.
In a smooth motion she moved her head down my body until she got to my cock and took all of me in her mouth. I wondered if she liked how Amy and I tasted. She had some trouble trying to take my cock deep in her mouth and I never expect any woman to really try, but there she was in her pixie-like glory trying her hardest. I reached down and made her move her ass closer to me so I could play with her pussy and she was literally dripping wet. Her pussy felt like it would be tight, but accommodating and her clit was prominent enough for me to find it without any kind of delay. Her sucking me and my fingers playing with her clit was perfect. It got the the point she couldn’t concentrate on giving me head.
She slapped my hand away and then swung her leg over lining up her pussy with my cock and slowly, but firmly slammed herself down. She did a hard inhale and pinched her own nipples. It felt amazing. I had already cum a number of times that night so it would be a long time before I came again so I hope she was ready to get work out.
It was when she started riding me hard that it occurred to me that we weren’t using a condom, but I was in such a state of pleasure I didn’t say anything. Irresponsible of me, but it has happened a few times in my life. Not often though.
She kept riding me, impaling herself on me and telling me how good my cock felt filling her up. I know she had a black husband, but not all black guys are hung. I know from having communal showers in the army that I was as hung, if not more, than a lot of the black guys even though I’m only about 25% black.
The way she rode me was almost professional if it wasn’t for her obvious goal was to please herself rather than me. Her hands alternated between playing with her clit and nipples and she rode and ground down on me. I was enjoying it so much I wasn’t ashamed to be vocal about how good it felt. Her first orgasm hit her hard. She bent down and kept grinding herself on me and telling me how hard she was cumming between biting and sucking on my neck.
She started to show those signs of her pussy being too sensitive, but I felt like we were just getting started so I finally had the energy to push her off and to the side moving her to her stomach and sliding a pillow under her hips and spreading her legs. And I’ll never forget what she said to me looking back over her shoulder “please don’t fuck my ass. Im just not ready for it tonight.” I mentally catalogued the information that she has done or still does anal and understands that there’s usually prep that comes with it. Good.
He doesn’t have a thick ass like I normally like but still looked amazing in this position and with the dim light coming I from the open door way. Used my hand to guide myself back into her pussy and she was still soaked. Just absolutely drenched. I used my hands to spread her cheeks so I could watch myself side in and out of her. I started slow and steady, but I could feel her pushing back onto me so I reached up and grabbed her by the back of her head worh her hair and the other hand on her hip and I angled myself to be able to put all my weight behind the thrust and I started to pound away into her hard enough for the headboard to start that pounding against the wall even though I had secured padding behind it.
She kept her head down and screamed into the pillow with her hands going crazy all around her grasping at air and eventually nearly ripping my pillows apart. Between her screams she kept telling me to fuck her harder. I honestly didn’t know if I could without hurting her.
I’ve bruised pussy before and my friend Heather had to get pain killers from us fucking too hard once. Her cervix was bruised. They actually had asked her if she had been raped.
It was maybe less than three minutes of this vigorous pounding that the obstacle to my orgasm finally dropped. My cock started to feel sensation fully again since the last time I came inside Amy. And I told her I was going to cum soon. She told me she wants to see my face when I cum and she spun around and got on her back, opening her legs and grabbed my cock pulling me back to her pussy and I slammed into her. She hooked her legs onto mine and I kept thrusting into her and we made eye contact not breaking it. She was actually drooling a little and her eyes were misty, but it was her repeating to me to fill her up that put me other the top.
I came so hard it actually hurt on release. I pushed all the way into her so hard that she actually put her hands to my chest out of instinct, but her legs were still keeping us looked together. I collapsed on top of her. I don’t remember falling asleep after I rolled off of her. I woke up when the sun was shining and she was sleeping in bed next to me. My bedroom door had been closed. Either she closed it or my roommate did. Never found out.
I got up and put on the shorts I left on the floor and hit the latrine. I saw my roommate in the living room and he gave me a disapproving look. He didn’t know it yet, but later one we would tag team Hannah on the same couch he was eating a bowl of cereal on.
I came back to bed and lay down next to Hanna. Her hair was matted, she was naked and beautiful only partially under the bed sheet. When I got back into bed I put my hand on her hip and went back to sleep. Woke up again around 10 to her getting out of bed and telling me she had a great night and we need to do it again as soon as possible.
This started a more regular FWB situation with her eventually leading to threesomes with my friend Amy and a couple times tag teaming her with my roommate. The preacher never found out as far as I know. About 6 months down the road she tells me she’s pregnant, but doesn’t know if I’m the father or her husband. She won’t get an abortion. So I’m sweating it a little since I never really wanted kids. I guess I just assumed most women were on some sort of birth control. Nearly always used condoms until after blood tests with my partners.
Luckily for me the child was not mine. I looked up the preacher on Facebook and he’s still there. Status shows as single so I’m guessing they did eventually get that divorce.
It was a fun time. My younger years were really good to me.

2019.11.25 14:29 romanticwish I ghosted my shitty serving job

Long story short, I had a bit of an existential crisis and quit my office job to go back to serving, thinking I could handle it. Not only was it stressful as fuck, but the owner was abusive toward her employees, think Amy's Baking Company type shit. My last shift was on Saturday and I was supposed to work yesterday, but just said fuck it and didn't go. I changed my phone number so they can't contact me and ask why I didn't show up. Blocked the owners email, blocked everyone on Facebook. Not sure where I'm going with this I just had to get it out of my system. I have Z E R O tolerance for shitty business owners. I am working on going back to my old job since I left on good terms there.

2019.09.25 10:23 -Semaj- Daily Reminder: Look into your local candidates, too!

Saw a very familiar face appearing on the ballot in a neighborhood adjacent to mine. Unique situation but it's hilarious seeing someone you know IRL being given a mostly positive spin by the media and kind of drills home why even locally you should research your respective candidates. If they're just everyday people in the community, you're bound to run into others with anecdotal notes about them. Those anecdotal notes are important.
The intro paragraph mentions he "has a passion for auto racing" and has operated a local race track for the past 25 years, before covering a handful of softball topics. Media makes it sound like a typical older guy getting into politics now that he's over the hill and has a bit more free time to himself.
Many local racers, including myself, feel this guy actually ran the aforementioned facility into the ground and is kind of a head case.
His daughter is a nine-time champion at the track he owns, winning races with sometimes only three other cars on the track and then propped up as a "NASCAR Champion" by whatever local media are dumb enough to not do their homework. The guy will also sit on Facebook and either call people fat-asses or threaten racers with defamation suits if anyone makes negative comments about his race track or the unexplained bans he's given to successful drivers that have won against his daughter. Him and his wife kind of remind me of the Amy's Baking Company episode of Kitchen Nightmares.
There have been talks of getting NASCAR involved to see what can be done about forcing a management change, but most racers have opted to just boycott and race elsewhere.
You'd never know any of this from the news article linked at the top of the post, but this is why you go out in your community and ask about your local candidates. Someone is bound to know them.

2019.04.27 04:19 Yndie134 20/F Philippines - Looking for consistent friends and conversations

So I've found good friends here, so I thought, why not try it again?
Currently it's summer vacation and I decided to spend this time to make new friends like me since I find it hard to find people I can talk consistently and honestly to. This sounds odd but I like friends whom I can just say "Blah" to, and they play along because I like not to take conversations too seriously. I like to talk to people throughout the day so it is beneficial to be in the same or near each other's timezones.
As for interests, I'm into cooking and baking a lot.
I watch a lot of Netflix and the shows I watched are: The end of the f***ing world. Russian Doll. RuPaul's Drag Race. One Day at a Time, Pose.
I love music and some of the bands and artists I'm into are IV of Spades, Daft Punk, Glass Animals, Bradio, Gorillaz, My Chemical Romance, Panic! at the Disco, Twenty one pilots.
I don't play video games as much but I have been a into Kingdom Hearts, Harvest Moon, and Night in the woods.
I like to read books as well, both non-fiction and fiction. My favourite writer has always been Neil Gaimen.
I'm also into MBTI if anyone know that. (I'm an INFP-T) I'm not religious although I have been interested in Wicca.
I like being honest about what I'm doing and what I'm thinking about, so expect me to be straightforward most of the time. I don't mind not being able to talk for a while, so long as we check in on each other. I'd like for us to be open about how we feel and of each others pasts and to not mind out-of-left-field questions about each other and of their past. I like it when we tell each other stories about our experiences and just enjoy being in each other's company.
I do have both a discord and facebook. If you wish to add me, I'm Ami Tea #9128

WOAH! GOLD?! Thank you! Hope this helps others in their Duggar Education!
And thank you for your patience as I worked to edit. Ran into some code issues that would not let me update and now there are formatting issues. Ugh Smart pretty pants and markdown not playing nice... this is just going to be what it is even thought I am a layout queen so this REALLY bugs me...
**The point of this was to have info at our fingertips in order to continue our snarky mission of putting a critical eye to this cult and family. I probably missed stuff. And more stuff is going to happen. But THERE IS A LOT IN HERE. Like A LOT a lot. Want the floorplan of the Tin Mansion? It is in here. Want to know where Jim Bob went to school? In here. Josh Scandals and Derick Twitter coverage? yep! But I know I've missed some things. There was just so, so much I know somethings fell through the cracks such as properties-- i'd love to be able to add in when properties were purchased and more $ stuff. But happy reading! Sorry you won't be getting anything done today. ;)
Also, sorry for any spelling and/or grammar mistakes, formatting issues, etc. le tired. As always, Click at your own risk but links were "good" on my end. Mods, I am pretty sure everything follows the rules. \**
Duggar Timeline
July 18, 1965
Birth of Jim Bob . JimBob was born to Mary “Grandma” Duggar and Jimmy Lee “JL” Duggar and raised in a cabin with older sister Deanna . As fundamentalists.wikia notes of JimBob’s childhood “The Duggars did not have a lot of money, and in one of the books Jim Bob wrote as an adult he mentioned a time where his mother had to cook decorative rice because it was the only food in the house. Jim Bob often blames this on his father being unable to handle money. In the book Growing Up Duggar, which Jim Bob's daughters wrote, they mention that JL was not a good "spiritual leader of the home", a statement they don't expand on. Not much else is known about Jim Bob's childhood”.
Jim Bob attended Shiloh Christian School and was part of their first graduating class. In 1979, First Baptist Church of Springdale--which included Shiloh Christian School, founded in 1976--moved from downtown Springdale to a site on Johnson Road. It was at the Johnson Road location Jim Bob would marry Michelle, then live at somepoint for at least 7-14 years in the free church house before moving to Tin Mansion, then renew their vows in 2009 before the church changed its name to Cross Church in 2010 and Jill married there in 2014.
September 13, 1966
Birth of Michelle
Around 1979-1983ish
The Great Bikini Lawn Mowing Incident occurred during this time. Michelle dates other dudes before JB, is a cheerleader who wears thigh high skirts, and is popular. Neighbors call her parents over her barely there outfits.
Around 1981/1982
At 15, Michelle is saved and commits her life to the Lord. Meets JB at a friend’s church, doesn’t remember him. Then a guy, Fred, from her school that goes to JB church is all like, "I know this girl from school that just got saved and is a cheerleader." And Jim Bob is like, "I'd better go visit her." After visiting with her and inviting her to Sunday School, Jim states as he was leaving Michelle’s home he prayed “"Lord, I would love to be her spiritual leader. Can she be mine?" FYI: Michelle spent the time talking with Fred and doesn’t remember Jim Bob. While Jim Bob preys on prays for her.
Around 1982/1983
Michelle applied for a position at a Frozen yogurt shop, starting her lifelong love of ice cream and beginning her Duggar journey—Grandma Duggar was the manager of the Yogurt shop and, apparently, the owner as well (unsure of this but manager and owner of this establishment are thrown around in regard to Grandma D.). She mentions Michelle’s application to Jim Bob and he tells his mom she HAS to hire Michelle. Michelle meets Jim Bob one day when he is fixing the cash register and he asks Michelle to his JunioSenior Banquet where neither can eat anything and afterwards they spent 4 hours reading the bible at Michelle’s home.
1983-1984
Michelle quit cheerleading. FYI: The football players and cheerleaders partied together. Jim Bob also didn’t have to wait until marriage to get more than a side hug from Michelle. According to Radar, the “abstinence only” fans “got physical” before they walked down the aisle.
May 1984
Michelle (Springdale Public High School) and Jim Bob (Shiloh Christian High School) graduate from their High Schools.
July 21, 1984
Michelle (17, almost 18) and Jim Bob (19) exchange marriage vows-- look at their invite... There is apparently an audio recording of the wedding which the couple plays for their children every year but I was unable to track down for our listening pleasure. Also, the thriftiness began as they did: Michelle baked the wedding cake, wore Grandma Duggar’s wedding dress, and honeymooned at an Arkansas State Park, which did not go as planned. Apparently, Jimbob and M started off selling used cars JB would do repairs on, which makes the robbery story fit in… this leads to a towing business which is sold down the road to get into real estate as well as several used car lots.
1984-1988ish
Known lovingly as BJ: Before Josh. At that time, they chose to use THE pill.
March 3, 1988
Joshua "Josh" James 1 : The Golden Child. Realizing they made a mistake the Duggar’s go back on the oral birth control. (conceptionish: June 1987)
January 23, 1989
Michelle suffers the miscarriage of Caleb. Michelle and Jim Bob believed the miscarriage was a message from God, because she was on THE birth control pill. They decided to stop using any contraceptives and mass produce. The Birth Control Pill becomes a huge part of their testimony. While some note Caleb was not celebrated like Jubilee, he does have a graveside in the same cemetery as Jubilee.
1989-1990
JimBob is Robbed at his own home while Michelle is there, asleep and pregnant with Twins1.0. Also, make some applemonade and suck the venom out.
January 12, 1990
Blessings from God: Jana Marie 2 & John-David 3 (conceptionish: April 1989. Born 22 months after Josh. Delivered via C section due to having pre-eclampsia
May 17, 1991
Jill Michelle 4 (conceptionish: Aug 1990, 8 months after the birth of the twins. Born 16ish months after the twins.)
1992
Possibly around the time the Duggar’s move into the Free Church House with three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. This will be the home featured in early specials. They live here for the next 14ish years until Tin Mansion is built. Also, JB is a lying liar who lies.
This may also be the time frame that JB saw the ILBP’s Financial Freedom Seminar. From this look in, it seems JB and M purchased their first home prior to marriage and JB was interested in investment properties. HOWEVER, this made me think that JB got the seminar NOT back in the mid/late 80s but more in the 90s. Plus, the whole 7 years to pay for the house in cash (2000 was when the land and kit was purchased.) puts it at about 1992-1993ish.
Regardless, with Michelle’s miscarriage, turn to fundie esp with being blessed with not only twins but row of healthy births after the “conversion” this time frame would work with an intro into the seminars and the “debt free lifestyle” taking over as they get deeper into this cult.

2000
Construction of their 7,000 square-foot house began when they bought the lot and ordered two steel frames. One wasn’t drilled correctly, which means they ended up with 3 kits and could build the girls’ room and the ugly kitchen that never gets used. The house isn’t finished or moved into for another 6 years.
I also think the Laundry Room Meltdown occurred at somepoint during this timeframe. 1. God answered her with NaNa, their piano teacher. Josh, Jana, JD, Jill, Jessa, and maybe even Jinger would be about right age wise for piano. But she’s also have 5 under 5. I think “jurisdictions” started around this point in time if not prior.

The Duggar family contributed thousands of dollars to Holt’s political campaigns, including a $650 donation made by the 14-year-old Josh Duggar and Josh was engaged to Kaeleigh Holt, who is rumored to have been the 5th molestation victim. Holt lost due to “sin in camp” aka josh (side note: gotta love how the bible is used as shade by this group lolz). There was also talk, could not find source but swear I remember this in a sub or freejinger, that Josh looked at porn on a campaign computer and was goaded into it by other campaign intern types was a possible excuse reason for it.)

In Touch Weekly reported that Duggar had told the Arkansas State Police that his oldest son, Josh Duggar, had molested five underage girls, including family members, when he was 14–15 years old. This lead to the cancelation on Kids and Counting as well as a host of other things like Jill and Derrick’s Mission after Derrick quit Walmart (oddly a little bit before the news hit the tabloid shit fan… I have a theory… First, I looked up the Scandal release date of May 19 2015. I noted the last time TLC started the show in Feb, they had 26 episodes and went until October. The last season was 22 episodes aired from Feb to May. Then I noticed how the last 4 episodes aired. The last four episodes were released May 12 and May 19 as two one hour episodes aired back to back. This lead me to the idea that perhaps TLC knew about Josh all along and/or knew the story was going to break. Media orgs have working relationships and understand advertisers. I think TLC had the story held until after May 19th. Also, Derick started looking at missionaries prior and I want to say had quit Walmart by the time the news hit.)

2018.06.16 05:52 kittehgoesmeow What A Day: Jail to the Chief by Priyanka Aribindi, Brian Beutler & Crooked Media (6/15/18)

"This is not middle school. I can't take his cell phone."—Judge on sending Paul Manafort to jail

Manafortnight or Two in Jail

A federal judge in Washington, D.C. sent President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort to jail, after investigators working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller caught him tampering with witnesses. It’s the little things.
Trump bemoaned Manafort’s “tough sentence,” but it’s not a sentence. (Guess this means Trump doesn’t understand either usage of the word “sentence.”) Manafort was awaiting trial on supervised release. The judge revoked his bail because he used his freedom to obstruct justice. Now he will await trial in a jail cell. We’re not sad about that!
This is perilous for Trump, and good for those of us interested in the pursuit of justice, because it creates new and enormous pressure on Manafort to cop a plea and cooperate with Mueller’s collusion investigation. This means we are very close to the Flynn, Cohen, Manafort “When I Flip, You Flip, We Flip” parody music video.
Manafort is the only American Mueller has accused of crimes to plead not guilty. Either because he fears retaliation, or because he anticipates a pardon, or because of a combination of the two, the threat of conviction hasn’t fazed Manafort at all. He already stands to spend the rest of his life in prison, so Mueller can’t use new charges as further leverage. But spending time in a jail cell, knowing he might never get out again, is just the sort of development that might focus his mind. That, or Vladimir Putin is already helping him dig his way out of there.
Which is probably why Rudy Giuliani reacted to the news by dangling the possibility of a presidential pardon before him. Maybe Rudes doesn’t realize Mueller can see him obstructing justice even when he does it through a New York tabloid reporter.

Our Disgusting Leaders

Yesterday across the country people gathered to protest the Trump administration’s policy of separating children from their parents at the U.S. border. Religious organizations and medical groups like the American College of Physicians and the American Psychiatric Association supported the protests by condemning the policy.
House Republicans have proposed legislation that would keep families together, but treats the children as hostages and trades them for billions of dollars in border-wall funding. Trump initially promised to veto similar legislation, but the White House now says he supports it.
Meanwhile, Trump continues to insist that the policy is Democrats’ fault (it’s not), while Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders fumbled through their bibles looking for verses that might justify this cruelty, and settled on a passage slavery supporters once used to oppose abolition ahead of the Civil War. Perfect.

Stop Repeating Trump's Lies

This morning, Donald Trump visited the White House lawn, where the hosts of his favorite North Korean propaganda show, FOX & Friends were filming. He had some shit to say, including:

What Else

New reports say senior EPA staff regularly felt pressured by administrator Scott Pruitt into helping him with his personal matters, including calling an executive to get him Rose Bowl tickets and helping his daughter get a White House internship. They also say he wasn’t shy about using his position for personal gain, reaching out to a Virginia politician to get his daughter into law school. These aides say they felt like “foot soldiers” in Pruitt’s efforts to match the lifestyles of wealthier cabinet secretaries, because he’s an entitled little shit and corrupt as hell. Also, imagine being jealous of Wilbur Ross and Steve Mnuchin. Who knew anyone could be more embarrassing than Paul Ryan?
The Trump administration announced it will move forward with tariffs on an additional $16 billion worth of Chinese goods, bringing the total up to $50 billion worth of their products. China has vowed to retaliate, and called “all countries to take joint action, resolutely put an end to this outdated and regressive behavior, and firmly defend the common interests of mankind.” In other words, the kind of stuff our government said before Trump came along.
Democrats have decided to hold their next convention in July 2020, the earliest dates in more than two decades, in part because they’re anticipating an intense and crowded primary field, and now all their problems are solved and all that work Favreau put into his forthcoming podcast was for nothing. We look forward to flipping out about all the unintended consequences of this move in the months to come.
Trump’s 2020 campaign is reportedly working with former Cambridge Analytica staffers. The controversial data firm dissolved earlier this year amid scandals that ensued over its improper acquisition of Facebook user data, and the controversial techniques it employed to discredit its clients’ opposition, including bribery and prostitution. At this point, if you don’t have “criminal” on your CV, the Trump administration wants no part of you.
In attempting to prove it wasn't discriminating against other ethnic groups, Harvard released data showing it has consistently given Asian-American applicants lower personality ratings. Oops.
Delaware’s Governor signed a bill banning bump stocks into law yesterday.
Trump cut Michael Cohen’s salary roughly in half to get him to quit his job at the Trump Organization, but Cohen instead stayed on to prove himself. From Priyanka, to Michael Cohen: I’m no lawyer, but in the court of public opinion, flipping could not possibly make you look worse than this man has already made you look.

Look No Further than the Crooked Media

On Majority 54: Jason Kander talks to Nevada State Senator Yvanna Cancela about unions, how they’re perceived in America, and what the future of organized labor looks like. Cancela led Nevada’s largest union, and played a pivotal role in turning Nevada blue in November 2016.
Listen

You've Gotta Be Fucking Kidding Me

There’s no state, county, or metropolitan area in this country where a worker making the federal minimum wage of $7.25 could possibly afford to rent a modest two bedroom apartment. Even though the labor market has been growing, wages have not kept pace at all with the growing cost of housing. To afford a two-bedroom rental, the average worker making minimum wage would have to make three times federal minimum wage, or work approximately 122 hours per week. To afford a one-bedroom rental, that figure drops to a still-unacceptable 99 hours a week. But don’t worry, the Paul Ryan Corporate Tax Cut will trickle down any day now.

Did You Read That Thing?

The Maternal Wall: In what is probably unsurprising news to most women and mothers, “many of the country’s largest and most prestigious companies still systematically sideline pregnant women,” stalling their professional advancement, passing them over for pay raises and promotions, and firing them if and when they have complaints, according to a new New York Times investigation. After controlling for variables, one study found that with each child, a woman’s hourly wages decrease by four percent, while men see their earnings increase by six percent when they became fathers.
The number of pregnancy discrimination claims filed has risen annually over the past two decades, but many more women facing discrimination like this at work lack the means to file legal complaints, or don’t realize that what’s happening to them is illegal.

2017.01.05 06:41 Gregheff Trump's Presidency Will Be Similar to Amy's Baking Company

In 2013, Chef Gordon Ramsey visited Amy's Baking Company. However, he was unable to make changes due to Amy being not open to criticisms.
We seen many breakdowns on Facebook and Twitter. Eventually, the restaurant closed last year.
Amy herself divorced in 2003 before committing identify theft. She later married Samy before opening the restaurant in 2007.
This fiasco has manifested into the 2016 election. We will see how Trump's presidency will likely parallel Amy's Baking Company.
Trump has divorced several times and caught up in several lawsuits, I.e. Trump University.
His policies are likely to be final and are likely to be inelastic.

2016.12.10 23:23 pandaplusbunny HeR's hilarious infraction system

Idk if y'all have tried posting on their forum, but I got like my 3rd infraction on the MID rumor thread. If you so much as mention the company itself rather than the game exclusively, they'll edit or delete your post for you and send you an infraction notice.
It's really quite ridiculous. They don't even behave that way on Facebook.
So since they can't ban my reddit post, here is what I said in response to the news Cathy Roiter (game designer since like 1998) has left the company:
"This seriously could not get worse for them. I'm just trying to imagine what's next. Their servers explode and they don't have backups and have to start all over? I mean seriously, it's like they're trying to drive this company into the ground."
ETA THEY GAVE ME ANOTHER ONE. These people are seriously, seriously making me wish the whole company folds. UGH!
To answer u/Flowers_for_Torgo, my first infraction was addressed to a misspelling of my username and read as follows:
"Hi sgroen You already received a warning asking you not to post about speculation regarding Her Interactive. This forum is not called "Rumours about Her Interactive". It is possible to post about MID without Talking about company actions. Your post will be edited."
Note: It was not "edited." It was entirely deleted. So I left an admittedly snarky post in response with plenty of bolding to show that I was exclusively talking about MID and not the company or their egomaniac CEO. This was my post.
I came back tonight to another infraction that reads:
"Dear sggoren,
You have received an infraction at Her Interactive Inc. Community Forums.

Reason: Rudeness

Hello sggoren,

If you choose to be rude to others, including Moderators, there is an infraction for that. Members have been told repeatedly that this is not the "Her Interactive Rumours" forum. It has been clarified several times what can and cannot be posted on the Board. If you have a complaint, launch it with the company.

Uhh....hello? It's a "RUMORS" forum. That's literally what it says at the top of the page. "FORUM: GAME RUMORS." What on Earth is wrong with these people? They are standing by every minute to delete every post that's not lavishing praise on them? They're going insane, officially. And I'm getting super bitter about it, because I was also the user whose full name was posted on their "rumors" thread and nobody cared to delete that! These people are way too thin-skinned to be running a serious company. They're like that crazy lady at Amy's Baking Company.
I play other games that have forums, most specifically WoW. These HeR people would have a freakin' aneurysm if they read the complaints people throw at Blizzard. This company has become incapable of accepting any feedback that's not kissing their ass. Unbelievable.
