In other news, the Dow Jones just had it's worst day since 1987, falling by 2,352 points or about 10 percent. The market is now worth about as much as it was in June of 2017.

And in related news, one of Trump's bankrupt casinos, the Trump Plaza tower in Atlantic City, New Jersey, is literally crumbling and local officials want to demolish it before it kills someone.

Officials in Atlantic City announced they would be filing an injunction in Superior Court Thursday afternoon to demolish a tower at Trump Plaza after an inspection deemed the building an “imminent hazard.”

Atlantic City Director of Licensing and Inspections for Dale Finch said he received a call around 11 a.m. Sunday from Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small Sr. and his chief of staff Ernest Coursey about panels that had fallen from an area at least 15 stories high from the building and had left debris on the ground. After discussions and inspection with city construction official Anthony Cox, the property was declared an imminent hazard. [...]

Construction on the building began in 1982, with its official opening happening in 1984. After the casino closed in 2014, it has remained empty. Ichan Enterprises, owned by Carl Ichan, currently controls the property after assuming ownership of it in 2016.

Finally, Senate Republicans have delayed their vote on a subpeona for a former Ukrainian official who was suppose to talk to them about Hunter Biden because intelligence officials briefed them that it may be a Russian op.

WASHINGTON — A Republican Senate committee chairman abruptly called off a subpoena vote on Wednesday after federal authorities shared concerns that a former Ukrainian official cooperating with Republican investigators could be spreading Russian disinformation.

Senator Ron Johnson, Republican of Wisconsin, the chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, was under pressure from Democrats and members of his own party after a pair of briefings from federal officials on Tuesday. The briefings raised questions about the Ukrainian’s reliability as a source for two politically sensitive investigations before the committee, including one into the family of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Tomorrow may be a light posting day. Or a no posting day. I'm not sure yet. I've been incredibly stressed out this week and last night I finally broke down. I went to the grocery this morning, which was like thunderdome. They were sold out of toilet paper, of course. Schools are closing here for 3 weeks.
