In other news, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the Jeff Sessions Justice Department cannot punish so-called "sanctuary cities" by withholding grants if they don't play along with immigration authorities.

Meanwhile, New York Federal Reserve President William Dudley says we 'cannot win' a trade war with China and the Federal Reserve is keeping a close eye on Trump's budding war because it will effect the Fed's economic outlook and policies.

Finally, Justice Department attorneys working for special prosecutor Robert Mueller stated in court this morning that their interest in Paul Manafort stems from a suspicion that he served as the back-channel between the Trump campaign and Moscow. I think we knew that, but this makes it official.

The filing came in response to Manafort's contention that the investigation and prosecution of him falls outside the bounds of Mueller's mandate.

    That cartoon is perfect. The imbecilic colluding with the moronic.

    Paul Manafort made it his life’s mission to become or at least mimic the lifestyle of an oligarc. The idea that investigating him in connection to Trump/Russia would fall outside Mueller’s mandate is laughable.
