In other news, Trump's longtime henchman and thug Michael Cohen was forced to reveal his list of clients in court this morning; a list that includes Trump, Elliot Broidy, and... Sean Hannity!

Meanwhile, British and American authorities say Russian-backed hackers were behind a global campaign to hijack routers during the 2017 "NotPetya" cyber attack. They say the goal of hijacking the routers was to conduct espionage and intellectual property theft by intercepting internet traffic.

Finally, here's John Oliver on corporate taxes and tax cuts.

    I used to think that G. W. Bush was the ultimate creation of conservative media. A president who just gave the pundits what they wanted. Boy was I wrong. Sean Hannity, perennial rightwing blowhole, has the same lawyer/fixer/henchman (good descriptor JM) as the clown president.

    These people have made America look ridiculous.

      I don’t look back at the W era with any fondness at all. So much bad came out of his administration and it set the stage for the multi-mess that President Obama had to deal with. At the very least W respected the office. He did some buffoonish things and he wasn’t what I would call an intellectual juggernaut but he took the job seriously. That wasn’t clear to me when he was in office but it sure as shit is now as is the importance of anyone elected to take it seriously. That was always the default position- respect the office.
