In other news, Trump's chief of staff Mark Meadows says there's no deal in sight to pass another stimulus bill. There probably won't be this week and possibly not next week. Who knows?

Meanwhile, the Manhattan district attorney’s office has told the court that their subpoena of Trump's financial records should stand because they're investigating a much larger pattern of criminal behavior at the Trump Organization, including insurance and bank fraud.

Finally, a study from Oxford University found that a large number of educated British citizens have already permanently relocated to the EU ahead of the Brexit.

The study says that migration from the UK to EU countries has increased by about 30% compared to pre-Brexit numbers. Britons living in other EU countries who decided to obtain EU member state passports as well as their UK ones had increased by more than 500% overall, and by 2,000% in Germany.

Dr Daniel Auer, a co-author of the report, said: “These increases in numbers are of a magnitude that you would expect when a country is hit by a major economic or political crisis.”

Moreover, the study found that UK migrants are among the most educated and skilled of those from any nation, with one of the highest net average income rates, suggesting that Brexit has begun a steady drain of the most talented and productive people to the continent.

Proponents of the Brexit have falsely claimed that immigrants from Europe have flooded into Britain and taken their jobs. Now it looks like Britain will have a significant labor shortage in the near future; for both skilled and unskilled positions.

The Brexit is both a "economic or political crisis" in the making.

    Democrats should play hardball on the stimulus. Make McConnell squeal. There’s enough mind blowing pork in that thing to easily use to blast Rs from here to Kingdom Come in campaign ads.

    I desperately hope to see prosecutions of this administration. The only was we are going to see normal in American politics again is if we make crystal clear that that abnormal will no longer be tolerated. That means arrests, prosecutions and convictions.

    I’m honestly surprised we haven’t seen a similar type of “brain drain” here in America.
