So apparently the one thing Lindsay went against Trump with and held to his supposed old ethical standard was all for fucking show

Goddamn corrupt traitorous psychopath

So you got 2 of Rudy's boys arrested for campaign finance violations and tried to flee the country, you got Pete Sessions whose political career is pretty much dead after this, you got Linda implicated in this as well, you'd think with Vince it'd be the other way around.

What a day

LMFAO Lindsay put on fucking theatrics to go against Trump publicly and then on the side doing Trumps bidding and soliciting favors.

I think it's safe to assume that any Republican openly defending and boot licking Trump is on the take.

I had asked Mark Meadows about Yovanovitch today and he mentioned Sessions’ concerns about her as ambassador. (He hadn’t yet seen the indictment.) Meadows said that he had concerns about her “based on comments that my colleague Pete Sessions alleged she made.”

Mark Meadows is the one who used his grandchildren as props to prove he's not racist in response to being called out on using a different woman as proof that Trump wasn't racist, right?

Edit: Emptywheel seems to be positing that the sources may be lying
Russian disinfo in 2016 repeatedly described really damning things that were similar to substance of real damning things, but which distracted from the real stuff.
Edit2:Southpaw saying more explicitly
These modestly compromising calls with Graham were recorded by persons with suspected ties to Russian intelligence in early August. It's now early October. Graham has recently made noises opposing Turkey's incursion in Syria... is that why we're hearing about it now?

At a transportation funding announcement


Bevin tells the people in the room that the media in the back of the room are working for his opponent Andy Beshear.
Bevin is now talking about abortion and how that should affect their votes. (This is a transportation funding announcement)

Bevin now describing what’s on the state flag.
Bevin: “Is it fun to be governor? No.” But he’s grateful to be in the position.

Bevin talking about how many college students and “the tabloid writer in the back” are socialists.
Stuck around after Bevin spoke with people there and took selfies, and I asked him if he would answer some questions from me. He replied “no, not from you.”
Mark Meadows must be a late sleeper if he constantly doesn't know of crimes

Yea I watched that as it happened and instead of calling him out further Elijah Cummings pulled that kumbaya garbage and called him a "friend".

Yea he was scared and desperate to fight back against the obvious accusation. Even had Cummings vouch for him, pleaded him on nat tv to defend his honor.

Cummings was quick to call him a friend and he didn’t believe Meadows was racist. It was a real “sure Jan” moment.

That Cummings then defended as one of his "best friends", and then Meadows returned the favour with silence as Trump ranted off about Cummings months later. Yeap that's the guy.

One of the "pranksters" provided Politico with the call. I believe they call this a shot across the bow of the U.S.S. Lindsey.

I used to just think he was afraid of being primaried. Now believe he's compromised.

Sounds like it was shopped around
When you are told that you can’t use the material bc someone else has been given an exclusive (and you had turned it down), that’s pretty bad journalistic practice. A reporter’s reputation is only as good as her word.

As a tangent, it really should be a huge priority to get our phone communications in order so that it's not so easy to scam people. I know there are some developments in that area, but it should be considered a national security issue, not just something to protect people from low-grade fraud.

Oh boy Minnesota, tonight is going to be hours of aired grievances and whinging, fomenting violence, and unbridled insanity.

Oh, and I'm taking bets on how many times Trump hints at civil war.

Seems like that Lindsey story is basically 'Shut the fuck up Lindsey and let us invade'

Now to see him walk back his bipartisan Senate bill.
