    An interesting tweet chain I was shown just a few minutes ago. A bit over-the-top patriotic for my personal taste, but worth a read nonetheless. It's long so I'll just quote the first parts

    Guys, please ignore all the "TRUMP IS AN OUT OF CONTROL DICTATOR" and "AMERICA IS OVER" stories floating out there.

    He's a Mobster who's caught because America ain't over.

    If America were over and if the shitty golfer masquerading as POTUS were in charge of jack shit, Paul Ryan wouldn't have retired.

    If America were "over" and if Trump had any swing at all in this, nobody would take a plea deal because, hey, keep your mouth shut and WAIT FOR THE DICTATOR TO ACT!

    If America were BOO HOO IN PERMANENT DECLINE then they'd have purged the IC and DOJ, issued some blanket statements, and gone on selling this place for parts.

    Oh, these scumbags tried. And they've been using their bought-and-paid-for media stooges to psychologically terrorize you every damn day about it.

    BUT THEY FAILED.

    America is a land still run by the Constitution and the Rule of Law. It's why getting rid of these treasonweasels is taking so long.

    WE'RE DOING IT BY THE BOOK.

    Why bother? It's an emergency? Why not just rush in and handcuff the shit out of the people we know are dirty.

    BECAUSE IT'S NOT AMERICA'S SYSTEM, WHICH IS A VERY GOOD ONE, AND NOT AT ALL OVER OR BROKEN.

    Trump just dubbed the recent FBI information story "SPYGATE".

    Watching Season 2 Favorite Character Michael Avenatti spiral on twitter and Eric Garland's latest madness--RICO DEATH PENALTIES, EVERYONE--and I'm continuously amazed how the current situation drives everyone insane bit by bit. I mean, the #resistance folks are just about able to field a matched team with #MAGA nowadays.

    Most Americans don’t realize Robert Mueller’s investigation has uncovered crimes

    An indictment on the know-nothing mentality of the American people
    An indictment on the media, who are more interested in the Trump circus and BOTH SIDES
    An indictment on the Democratic Party who refuse to make noise about this constitutional crisis because they're afraid it will upset rural hicks in a Missouri diner

    Trump can't block Twitter followers, federal judge says


    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/23/trum...udge-says.html

    President Donald Trump cannot block users on his Twitter feed, a federal judge in New York City ruled Wednesday.

    The suit was filed in July 2017 by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, as well as seven other plaintiffs who had been blocked on Twitter by Trump.

    The president is an avid Twitter user and routinely makes news, often several times in a single day, with his posts.

    Day 489: Taxi King.

    1/ Michael Cohen's business partner took a plea deal that requires him to cooperate with the government as a potential witness in state and federal investigations. Evgeny Freidman is a Russian immigrant known as the "Taxi King," and he specifically agreed to assist government prosecutors in state or federal investigations, according to a person briefed on the matter. Freidman was disbarred earlier this month, has been accused of failing to pay $5 million in taxes, and is facing multiple counts of criminal tax fraud and one of grand larceny. Freidman's cooperation is seen as potential leverage to pressure Cohen into working with Mueller's team on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections. (New York Times / Washington Post / Politico / CNBC / Vox)

    2/ Scott Pruitt spent at least $9,600 on decorations and furniture for his personal office. Pruitt bought Smithsonian artwork, a refurbished desk, and other framed items. He paid the Smithsonian Institution $1,950 in labor and delivery charges to rent out three art pieces for his executive suite, and spent more than $2,500 on frames for various items, including a photo of himself with Trump and an American flag. The internal document with the list of expenditures also confirmed earlier reports that Pruitt spent $2,963 on a standing "captain's" desk and $2,075 on a different desk. (The Hill)

    http://thehill.com/policy/energy-env...ed-desks-email

    Earlier reporting (March 14): Scott Pruitt’s $25,000 soundproof phone booth? It actually cost around $43,000. "In addition to the soundproof booth, invoices released by the EPA show Pruitt paid $2,075 to refinish a desk that had been stored in a government warehouse, as well as $2,963 for a new 'captain’s desk' in his office." (Washington Post)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.2ed8399c4d9a

    3/ The White House did not invite Democrats to a private briefing on the FBI informant involved in the investigation into the Trump campaign's contacts with Russians during and after the 2016 election. Two senior House Republicans were invited to the briefing, which was coordinated by John Kelly and will be held on Thursday. Democrats are demanding that Democratic lawmakers be included in the briefing. Sarah Huckabee-Sanders said Democrats weren't invited because they didn't specifically ask for details about the informant. (Politico)

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...e-house-603275

    Donald Trump turned a rumor into a full-blown government conspiracy in just 5 days. Trump went from having heard a rumor about the FBI's use of a confidential source to ckaiming that it was an intentional and political attempt to install a "spy" within his ranks on behalf of Obama's Justice Department. (Politico)

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/23/polit...ate/index.html

    Trump’s FBI spy theory is completely insane. "The spy theory holds that the FBI, working on orders from the Obama administration, implanted a spy into the Trump campaign in order to help Hillary Clinton’s campaign. . . . This does not explain why the FBI failed to announce either the results of its spying campaign, or even the existence of the investigation, in time to help Clinton win, rather than allowing the probe to remain secret until well after the election." (New York Magazine)

    http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer...er-insane.html

    4/ Trump said he constantly bashes the press in order to "demean" and "discredit" journalists so the public won't believe "negative stories" about him. Lesley Stahl says she asked Trump, "Why are you doing it over and over?" She continued: "And he said: 'You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so that when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.'" (Yahoo! Finance)

    https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/tr...-sh&soc_trk=tw

    5/ Mike Pompeo says the U.S. will fight back against what he called "continued efforts" by Russia to interfere in the 2018 midterm elections. Pompeo did not provide any details as to what the "appropriate measures" would entail, but he said the U.S. has so far been unable to establish "effective deterrence" to halt Russia's efforts. (Associated Press)

    https://apnews.com/8e511489492b4e0f8b8918c7354d26e4

    6/ John Kelly signed off on a plan to fire a handful of mid-level and junior aides after Trump demanded changes to the White House communications team in order to limit the leaks coming out of his administration. The plan would remove some of the department's low-level employees, while keeping high-level staffers such as Sarah Huckabee-Sanders and other officials on board. (Politico)

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...changes-603417

    7/ Jared Kushner’s prison reform plan passed in the House of Representatives. The bipartisan "First Step Act," which has Trump's support, passed with a 360-59 vote. The bill would provide training programs for prisoners and would be the first major bipartisan success for the Trump administration. Mitch McConnell, however, has indicated that he is unlikely to bring up the bill in the Senate unless Republicans can find a way to resolve their differences. (Politico)

    Congress’s prison reform bill, explained: The First Step Act has Trump’s support — but faces some Democratic opposition. (Vox)

    https://www.vox.com/policy-and-polit...eform-congress

    Is the “First Step Act” real reform? The bill addresses the dire need for rehabilitative services in the federal prison system, proves there is strong bipartisan support for at least modest criminal justice reform and underscores a strategic debate that has split the Democratic Party. (The Marshall Project)

    https://www.themarshallproject.org/2...ct-real-reform

    Trump-backed prison reform bill DOA in the Senate. While Trump has shown interest in prison reform, fractures within the Republican party have left little room for a win when it comes to bringing any criminal justice bill to the Senate floor. (Politico)
