John Dean is speaking near me!

I purchased tickets for his gig on Thursday evening. He will be offering prepared remarks and then have a Q&A at the end. He has been so eloquent on MSNBC etc. and I'm excited to hear what he has to say. He will be specifically addressing Watergate, but it's not too difficult to bring it all to our current day.

Anybody on DU have any suggestions for questions?


Assistance is much appreciated.

A Repost from a flight attendant - immigrant children on a plane

Shared post: "My friend Ånika Łodzinski is a flight attendant. Today her coworker posted the following about a REDEYE flight from Arizona to Miami last night:

“Through all the adversities we faced last evening with computer outages, cancellations and delays, nothing prepared me or my crew for 16 passengers. Sixteen. All dressed in black and gray cheap Walmart sweat suits, quietly boarding the 12:30am flight.

Children! Thirty-two scared eyes looking straight forward dazed. We try to speak, yet none speak English.

During the beverage service, one of the crew comes to me in tears. They can’t face these children that have been ripped from their families with a smile.

These children were probably ranging in age from 11, to the most adorable little girl maybe 6 years old. At 2:30 in the morning, deplaned here in Miami not knowing if they will ever see their loved ones again that they were separated from in Phoenix.

Those sweet innocent children, dressed as criminals silently deplaned with the same fear as our initial meeting. Except for the little girl. She looked up at me as she turned left for the main cabin door, with tears of fear streaming down her face. I’m not sure the protocol, but I leaned over hoping to offer some hope, she hugged me, which was returned - much to the scowl and comments from the adult escort.

I pray that these 16 scared little souls, as well as all the other thousands, find their way to reuniting with their loved ones.

We are trained yearly in hundreds of possible scenarios as attendants. Something like this isn’t remotely one of those. I had only met one of my crew a few years earlier, the rest never. Thank God, we had one another to lean on to not only get through the flight, but also maybe some glimmer of hope for those babies.”

What have we become?


Just saw him on Chris Hayes. He says he's focused on his anti-gerrymandering project, but he's considering it.

That would be fabulous!

David Jolly was on with Nicole Wallace

And what he said gave me the tiniest little bit of peace.

"Mueller and Rosenstein pulled the greatest end-run around Donald Trump, and no one saw it coming, and it's this: by referring this matter to the Southern District of New York, it ensures that this legal exposure and culpability between Trump and Cohen survives the dismissal of Mueller and survives the dismissal of Rosenstein.

"And why that matters is that an impeachable event does not arise out of an investigation by the Special Counsel....[T]he Mueller probe can be shut down because Trump and Cohen are now involved in this legal exposure in New York. If Trump is found to be legally culpable, that can still be an impeachable matter for the U.S. Congress."

He is on the Judicial Committee and he is a co-sponsor with Chris Coons (D)


My favorite line from Fire and Fury - So Far

Page 118:

"What's more, Bannon found (Paul) Ryan, in theory the House's policy whiz, to be slow-witted if not incompetent, and an easy and constant target of Bannon's under-his-breath ridicule."

Explains a lot about what is going on in the House of Representatives. Or what's NOT going on. So Ryan (with deeply furrowed brow) is an idiot!

Can a sitting Senator or, say, a Speaker of the House

be indicted by a Special Prosecutor? If said prosecutor happens to find evidence of illegal foreign campaign contributions?

Asking for a friend.

And wouldn't that be delicious! This housecleaning process needs to go deep.

So Trump DID show up in London!

Thanks to Madame Tussauds! This is hilarious! Love the workers taking pictures. Note the extra long red tie?


Something Wicked This Way Comes....

Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray had a meeting with Paul Ryan this afternoon in Ryan's office.


We have heard lots of prognostications about big stuff about to hit the fan. This sounds like it's going in that direction.

This madness must stop.

BREAKING: Doug Jones has been Certified!

Alabama has formally certified Doug Jones as the winner of the Senate Race! The judge threw out Moore's lawsuit. You can head up to DC now, Doug.
