    Michael Cohen has split from his lawyers.

    There are a number of possible reasons for this. Non payment, not listening to their advice, legal team just doesn't want to do this case because they know they can't win, or.... faced with double life sentences and now in massive debt he's about to flip.

    It might also be a smoke signal to Trump of "I need a pardon RIGHT NOW or else its going to be too late."

    Wonder which it is.

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Raj Shah out of Trump’s White House by end of year: CBS

    UM.

    This seems like a big departure. I'm really curious as to who Trump can hire after these guys leave. Who could be worse...is a question I expect to be answered.

    Also, I love this song and barely regret using it over and over. I feel I'll continue to get the chance:

    I patched up my brain the other day, but then it got blown again due to this:

    Corey Stewart was holding a rally, and the public started chanting "Lock him up!", referring to Tim Kaine. And then in a CNN interview, Corey says Kaine could very well be at the centre of FBI "spying" on Donald Trump.

    Lovely.

    Happy IG Report Day, everyone.

    If you have the option to just sleep through the day, I'd say go for it.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Bloomberg has it. What you'd expect. Signs of bad judgment/behavior, but no signs of politically-motivated bias in the actual investigations.

    Also, NYAG just launched a lawsuit against Trump, his family, and the Trump Foundation.

    Happy birthday, bud.

    Today it's WaPo taking the most salacious GOP conspiratorial talking point out of the IG report and making it the headline. C'mon, guys, you were the ones that were still OK.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Jake Tapper doing the same now. Good Scott.

    This last election genuinely broke mass media.

    Jake Tapper has always been bad.

    Default Re: American Politics thread: No Nazis Allowed

    I don't think Tapper is bad--he's frequently a decent interviewer--but he's the poster child for the current "fair journalism is inherently centrist both-sidesism."

    Also, COMEY WAS USING A GMAIL ACCOUNT FOR FBI BUSINESS.

    He's a decent interviewer because he invites known liars on to his show and then owns them so he can go viral.

    Also he once stood up for Fox News when Obama called them out but now is complaining that they might be bad, maybe.

    https://whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday...06/14/day-511/

    Day 511: Persistent illegal conduct.

    1/ New York State attorney general sued Trump and his three eldest children for "persistent illegal conduct" at the Donald J. Trump Foundation. The lawsuit alleges that Trump repeatedly misused the nonprofit, violating campaign finance laws, engaging in self-dealing to decorate one of his golf clubs, and illegal coordination with his presidential campaign to stage a multimillion dollar giveaway during a 2016 campaign event. The state asked to dissolve the foundation and distribute its remaining $1 million in assets to other charities, and force Trump to pay at least $2.8 million in restitution and penalties. Trump attacked the lawsuit on Twitter, calling it an attempt by the "sleazy New York Democrats" to damage him. He vowed not to settle the case. (New York Times / Washington Post)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...569_story.html

    2/ The Inspector General Report: James Comey "deviated" from FBI and Justice Department procedures while investigating Hillary Clinton and her use of a private email server. The report concluded that Comey's decisions were not "the result of political bias," but that his "decisions negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the department as fair administrators of justice." Trump has argued that FBI agents tried to rig the Clinton investigation to help her win the presidency. The report also concludes that the text messages exchanged by FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page did not improperly affect the investigation, but "the conduct by these employees cast a cloud over the entire FBI investigation." (Bloomberg / New York Times)

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...watchdog-finds

    3/ Sarah Huckabee Sanders and deputy press secretary Raj Shah are planning to leave the White House. Sanders plans to leave by the end of the year, while Shah hasn't settled on an exact date. Sanders denied the rumor, tweeting: "Does @CBSNews know something I don't about my plans and my future? I was at my daughter's year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my 'plans to leave the WH' without even talking to me. I love my job and am honored to work for @POTUS." (CBS News)

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/sarah-s...e-white-house/

    4/ White House Counsel Don McGahn recused his entire staff from Robert Mueller's investigation last summer because many staffers "had been significant participants" in the firings of Michael Flynn and James Comey. Former White House lawyer Ty Cobb said McGahn's recusal was a key reason why he was hired last summer to manage Trump's response to the Russia investigation. (Politico)

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...counsel-643709

    5/ The White House launched a campaign to discredit Michael Cohen as speculation that he is preparing to flip on Trump continues to mount. The plan involves discrediting Cohen by arguing that whatever compromising information he shares with prosecutors about Trump is a lie meant to please Mueller in order to save his own skin. The plan includes everything from Trump's tweets, to comments from Alan Dershowitz, to front-page stories in the National Enquirer, all apparently intended to cast doubt on Cohen's credibility and motives.

    Well you know, this is a good thing. There's still people alive who were around for the japanese internment camps after all. We can't go an entire lifetime without being completely terrible as a nation in a way that future generations will look back on and wonder "how the hell did they let that happen?" We need to be as guilty as our grandparents.

    We need George Takei to comment on this, he is a survivor of one of those camps.
