In other news, the criminal trial of former birther posse sheriff Joe Arpaio began today. Arpaio has been charged with contempt of court.

Meanwhile, Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak is being recalled by Moscow, possibly for good.

Though Kislyak’s departure has long been expected, Moscow would not confirm his departure date. The US–Russia Business Council, however, is hosting a going away party for the ambassador on July 11 at the St. Regis Hotel.

It would be nice if he would just take all the Trumps with him when he leaves.

Finally, and speaking of Russia, Jared Kushner reportedly failed to disclose a $285 million loan he received from Deutsche Bank in 2016.

    At this point I would not bet a penny on whether or not that they will find Arpaio guilty. We have seen so many trials lately where it is brutally obvious that the party in question is guilty (from the wackaloons holding federal land hostage to Bill Cosby), but they skate away scot-free, because…who the hells knows!? Because there are a group of illiterates making the decisions, who are doing so with their “gut” and political leanings rather than based on any evidence.

    How, in the world, do you ‘forget’ a 285 million dollar loan from a foreign bank that is literally the only bank in the world that will lend to you and made soon after your father-in-law allegedly wins the presidency? How exactly does someone whose alleged government portfolio is ‘everything’ manage to ‘forget’ something like that as well as meetings with Kislyak? I sense a pattern of non disclosure and/or lying here.

      A perfect description of the whole sh*t-show that is Jared Kushner and his daddy-in-law.

    From Deutsche Bank. What a shock?!

      I keep calling it Douche Bank.

      It really is one of the douchiest of banks.

  • And Jared has lawyered up.
