In other news, James Alex Fields, the white supremacist who killed Heather Heyer with his car at the "United the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017, has been sentenced to life in prison.

Meanwhile, Time has named former Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi and other journalists who've been captured or killed as their "Person of the Year."

Finally, Politico reports that the Trump regime buried a report from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) that says Wells Fargo has been charging college students much higher fees than other banks do for the same service.

The previously unseen analysis examined the fees associated with debit cards and other financial products provided by 14 companies through agreements with more than 500 colleges across the country.

Wells Fargo provided roughly one-quarter of those accounts but the bank collected more than half of all fees paid by students, according to the report data. The bank’s average annual fee per account was nearly $50, the highest of any provider.

The report raises questions about whether campus accounts with high fees comply with Education Department rules requiring colleges to make sure the products they help promote are “not inconsistent with the best financial interests” of their students.

If this doesn't comply with the rules, they'll probably eliminate the rules.

    I can probably help Steve King out here. I’m guessing his rather notorious approval of and speeches for a neo Nazi group in Europe had something to do with it. You know, the behavior that lost him a lot of endorsements before the last election and substantially cut into gop support in his own district. Those particular associations.

    How come ICE isn’t showing up at Rump golf courses and hotels to cart off all the illegal workers he employs? They’re coming to courts, clinics, hospitals, businesses, all kinds of places now..

    James Alex Fields is the direct result of right wing propaganda. His name should be hung around the neck of the GOP and conservative media like a millstone for eternity.

    Jamal Khashoggi’s name should be used the same way. No I’m not impressed that Lindsey Graham and Bob Corker said some stuff on TV. If Obama or Hillary had looked the other way on the cold blooded murder of a journalist would have burned down the White House.

    Drain The Swamp™ and pour it down all our throats.
