In other news, ABC reports that Scott Pruitt's ridiculous security detail once broke down the door of the lobbyist condo because wasn't answering his phone. I wonder who paid for the damage.
Meanwhile, special prosecutor Robert Mueller is reportedly investigating the exact circumstances that led to anti-Russian language being removed from the 2016 RNC platform.
And in related news, former Russian spy Boris Karpichkov says he told his friend Sergei Skripal (who was recently poisoned with a nerve agent) that he's on Russia's hit list. Also on the list: Christopher Steele.
I missed a lot of stories this week because I've been sick (and I still am) so here are some of them:
After everything the Trump regime has done, Wyoming added a total of just 5 coal jobs in 2017. Five!

Russia has ordered nearly 60 diplomats from over 20 countries to leave the country.
Channel 4 reports that Facebook data harvested by Cambridge Analytica is still circulating. Of course it is.

Consumers have filed a lawsuit against BMW for installing emission cheat devices in their diesel vehicles just like Volkswagen did.

Japan's SoftBank and Saudi Arabia have signed a deal to build the world's largest solar power project, a 200 gigawatt facility that will cost $200 billion. This is a very big deal.

And finally, American commanders in Syria who spoke NBC News anonymously say they don't know if the White House is even paying attention.
"We’re on the two-yard line. We could literally fall into the end zone. We’re that close to total victory, to wiping out the ISIS caliphate in Syria,” one U.S. special forces commander told NBC News. “We’re that close and now it’s coming apart.”
"We send memos. We tell them [the White House] what is going on. I’m not sure they’re listening, or if they even know what we’re doing out here," another commander said. "I don’t think anyone is home right now."
Trump arrived at his golf club in Florida before 10 a.m. this morning.
Have a good weekend and happy Easter if you celebrate it.
