A new Public Policy Polling survey of Minnesota voters finds that a majority dont think Al Franken should resign from the US Senate, and that he remains popular in the state, particularly with women. Key findings from the survey include:
-50% of voters think he should not resign, to only 42% who think he should go through with his planned resignation. There is little appetite from Democratic voters at the state level for Franken to go, with 71% opposing his departure. A majority of independents- 52%- as well think he should not resign, with just 41% favoring his exit.
-Franken remains well above average in popularity for a Senator, with 53% of voters approving of the job hes doing to 42% who disapprove. PPP rarely finds Senators with majority approval in their home states. Frankens continued popularity is being driven especially by women. 57% of them like the job hes doing to 37% who dont. By contrast Donald Trump stands at 40/58 with women in the state.
-Minnesotans dont like how the process with Frankens resignation has played out. 60% think the Senate Ethics Committee should have completed its investigation (including 79% of Democrats and 61% of independents) before any decision was made about Frankens future, while only 35% think he should resign immediately. Beyond that 76% of Minnesota voters think their voices should have been more important in determining whether Franken stayed in the Senate or not, to only 12% who think that should have been determined more by his fellow Senators in Washington.

President Trump reportedly told friends at his Mar-a-Lago resort just hours after he signed the GOP tax bill that they all just got wealthier.
"You all just got a lot richer," Trump said Friday at a dinner at Mar-a-Lago, two friends at a table near the president told CBS News.
Late last week, Trump signed the sweeping Republican tax bill into law, marking his first major legislative accomplishment since winning the White House.
He spoke at length during the signing, thanking Republicans in Congress for getting the legislation to his desk and predicting it would help the economy.

A subset of the Republican members of the House intelligence committee, led by Chairman Devin Nunes of California, has been quietly working parallel to the committee's high-profile inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. They haven't informed Democrats about their plans, but they have consulted with the House's general counsel.
The people familiar with Nunes' plans said the goal is to highlight what some committee Republicans see as corruption and conspiracy in the upper ranks of federal law enforcement. The group hopes to release a report early next year detailing their concerns about the DOJ and FBI, and they might seek congressional votes to declassify elements of their evidence.
That final product could ultimately be used by Republicans to discredit special counsel Robert Muellers investigation into whether any Trump aides colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign or possibly even to justify his dismissal, as some rank-and-file Republicans and Trump allies have demanded. (The president has said he is not currently considering firing Mueller.)

Kochs brand, Wyatt Ingraham, sports the tagline Be Bold and he delivers. The shirts, with bright colors and busy patterns, are definitely what wed call bold. Theyre also what wed call seizure-inducing and oh God, why? Take, for instance, the Wall Street design which retails for $79 on sale, features literal moneybags, and looks like something a cigar-chomping fat cat would wear on Casual Fridays.
