In other news, Milwaukee County taxpayers reportedly paid $226,000 to provide security for former wingnut sheriff David Clarke. Just wait until the settlements for his jailhouse deaths are due.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Office of Government "Ethics" says it will allow anonymous donations to legal defense funds for White House staffers, meaning lobbyists and megadonors can fund their defense in the Russian interference probe. The swamp is overflowing.
Finally, details about the Trump regime's new anti-leak program have been... leaked to the press.
In the memo about leaks that was subsequently obtained by BuzzFeed News, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster details a request that “every Federal Government department and agency” hold a one-hour training next week on “unauthorized disclosures” — of classified and certain unclassified information.
The request includes “[s]uggested training materials” — provided by the National Counterintelligence and Security Center — that include the 15-minute C-SPAN video of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ August news conference about leaks and a six-minute Fox News video of an interview with the National Counterintelligence and Security Center’s director, William Evanina.
Making staffers watch a video of Jeff Sessions speaking for 15 minutes seems cruel and unusual.
