In other news, special prosecutor Rob Mueller has instructed all White House staffers to preserve all records they may have of Don Trump Jr's kopromat meeting.
Meanwhile, sources in the White House say Trump still can't pay attention during security briefings and routinely interrupts people to ramble about other topics.
Finally, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R) told CNN that the so-called "unmasking" accusations levied against former NSA Susan Rice were strictly the creation of House intelligence committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R). We already knew that, of course, but I love the smell of Republican infighting in the morning.
Here are some other stories I didn't get to this week:
Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the new White House press secretary. I give her 6 months or less.
Court documents reviewed by Reuters show Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya once directly represented the FSB security service (the KGB's successor). She's a spy.
Twelve Trump nominees have now withdrawn from consideration for top positions. The White House has also withdrawn 5 nominees.
The bodies of a Swiss couple who went missing in 1942 were found this week because the glacier they were trapped in is melting. What else will global warming show us?
A group of Catholic nuns in Pennsylvania have built a chapel in a cornfield in an effort to block a natural gas pipeline. Their goal is to block the government's use of eminent domain to seize the land. Religious freedom laws may block the government from doing so. Theoretically.

UPDATE... because this is a pretty big deal: Jeff Sessions discussed Trump campaign related matters with the Russian ambassador during the meeting he didn't disclose to Congress according to intercepts of Russian communications.
