In other news, the Senate Intelligence Committee has issued a subpoena for former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort after he refused to voluntarily participate.

Meanwhile, the American Psychoanalytic Association has waved the "Goldwater Rule" so it's 3,500 members can now publicly comment on the mental state of Trump.

Finally, one of the Russians who attended the meeting where Donald Trump Jr solicited dirt on Hillary Clinton was once at the center of a money laundering investigation in 2000. This will apparently be easy for special prosecutor Robert Mueller to look into because the documents are already there.

On Monday, [Former Senator Karl Levin], a onetime chairman of the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations who left Congress in 2015, sent a letter to special counsel Robert Mueller and the Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate intelligence committee highlighting the probe (titled “Possible Money Laundering by U.S. Corporations Formed for Russian Entities”), which was undertaken at his request by the General Accounting Office (now known as the Government Accountability Office, or GAO). That investigation, which found concerning bank practices but no criminal wrongdoing, revealed Kaveladze’s role in helping circulate more than a billion dollars from Eastern Europe and Russia through US bank accounts.

Ivanka Trump also lawyered up today.

    How is it that Republicans were threatening impeach Hillary before election day over a God damned email server buy Democrats in congress cannot find it in themselves to start screaming SMOKING GUN at the top of their lungs over the meeting with the Russians?!? A lawyer, a former military officer and a money launderer all with connections to the FSB or the Kremlin for God’s sake!

    This is definitely one of the reasons why R’s get to do what they’re doing. They go on TV and just say things because it suits them at the time and yet D’s drown themselves down in nuance to the point of incoherence trying to be fair towards people who hate them.

    FUCK FAIR!!! I just want to see a fight. And a damned mean one at that.

      YES! I am so tired of watching mealy mouthed Democrats stutter and stammer their way through a damned sentence with so much nuance that even I lose interest in what they are going to say. Grow some backbone and say what you mean — concisely!

      Their bad behavior does not give us leave to exercise bad behavior in reprisal. Just because “they did it first” does not mean we should do it, too.

      I do not accept that logic from my five year old, I will not accept it from my political leadership.

      I understand that this is not the most popular opinion, but someone has to be the grownup.

      • I’m pretty torn over this. Normally I would say you are correct. OTOH Trying to be the grown up in the room hasn’t gotten us any wins and without winning, the GOP is and will continue to run this country into the ground.

        I think the Dems behavior and any possible attempts at cooperation by Dems with reps is seen by reps as weakness which will only encourage them do more outrageous things. Reps have always been better at smearing Dems than vice versa. And what were Dems doing while reps gerrymandered them to the back bench in congress. Reps and their supporters have repeatedly shown they respect no one and no thing but themselves. The only thing they will understand and possibly respond to is strong in their face opposition. I don’t like it and wish things were different, but it is what it is. Reps are making every effort to destroy our country.

        Way to miss the point.

        Standing up and making a clear statement of fact and calling them on their bullshit isn’t acting like they do.

        This attitude of “we can’t stand up to them because it’s not the right way to behave” is killing us. Some of us, literally.
