In other news, the European Union has unveiled their new payment channel that will allow businesses to avoid U.S. sanctions and continue doing business with Iran.

Meanwhile, Trump is going to sign an executive order calling on federal agencies to source materials from American producers wherever possible, which they already do.

Finally, special prosecutor Robert Mueller's team told a federal judge they need more time to examine the evidence they seized from Roger Stone because there's so much of it.

In a motion to ask for more time to bring Stone’s case to trial, the feds said one reason is because discovery is “both voluminous and complex,” adding up to “several terabytes of information.” It includes results of search warrants served on Stone’s Apple iCloud accounts and email accounts, as well as warrants served on his home, apartment, and office that seized Stone’s cellphones, computers, and hard drives.

I'm signing off a little early today because the polar vortex (the real one) has made everything hurt and I had a deficit of fucks to give before the day even started. I can barely keep my eyes open.

Tomorrow is Friday.

  • Brace yourself for the Friday news dump….4 sealed dockets were filed by Mueller team yesterday. Sure to be some news today. At least, I hope so.
