The New York Times has the latest scoop:
WASHINGTON — Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, has asked the White House for documents about some of President Trump’s most scrutinized actions since taking office, including the firing of his national security adviser and F.B.I. director, according to White House officials.
Mr. Mueller is also interested in an Oval Office meeting Mr. Trump had with Russian officials in which he said the dismissal of the F.B.I. director had relieved “great pressure” on him.
The document requests provide the most details to date about the breadth of Mr. Mueller’s investigation, and show that several aspects of his inquiry are focused squarely on Mr. Trump’s behavior in the White House.
I know, I know, Fitzmas, blah blah blah. Still, I hope the ochre ogre is sweating it out.
Also, MAGAts in Florida and elsewhere served as Putin’s pawns, lured to Trump rallies via Facebook pages created by Russian troll farms. Courtesy of valued commenter Rikyrah, here’s a link to a Washington Monthly piece that summarizes the reporting on that.
So, to sum up, Mueller is examining Trump’s obstructive behavior in the White House, and reporters are uncovering incidents where Russian trolls led idiot Americans around by the nose with the intent to install Putin’s preferred candidate. My guess is this Facebook thing is just the beginning and that other shoes will drop in the social media realm.
Do we have the national will to do something about it? That’s really the only question that remains.
