In other news, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen defended the use of tear gas against women and children on the border by claiming they were being used as "human shields," because Nielsen is a fucking ghoul.

Meanwhile, court filings show that special prosecutor Robert Mueller's team has evidence that ring wing conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi and Trump's longtime henchman Roger Stone were discussing the 2016 Wikileaks dumps a full two months before their release.

I believe that's much further advanced knowledge than we knew about.

"Word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps," Corsi wrote on Aug. 2, 2016, referring to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, according to the draft court papers. "One shortly after I'm back. 2nd in Oct. Impact planned to be very damaging."

The email was revealed in a draft court document, known as a statement of the offense, sent to Corsi by special counsel Robert Mueller's office.

Finally, Mueller's team is also reportedly investigating meetings between Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno in 2017.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has been investigating a meeting between former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno in Quito in 2017 and has specifically asked if WikiLeaks or its founder, Julian Assange, were discussed in the meeting, a source with personal knowledge of the matter tells CNN.

In November 2017, The Associated Press reported that Moreno publicly acknowledged meeting with Manafort and a group of Chinese businessmen who wanted to privatize the country's electric corporation. Moreno said the proposal was rejected.

Is this why Julian Assange has been allowed to stay in the Ecuadorian embassy in London? Was harboring Assange a condition of whatever work Manafort was doing for President Moreno? Is this why Ecuadorian intelligence appears to be the source of recent leaks?

I have a lot of questions about the relationships between Ecuador, Assange, Manafort, and Russia. Apparently, so does Mueller.
