In other news, the ACLU has filed a lawsuit against Trump's phony election fraud commission for violating federal transparency laws. 44 states have refused to give Trump's commission what they want.
Meanwhile, Trump regime officials reportedly met with lawmakers last week to lobby for weaker Russia sanctions.
Finally, McClatchy reports that membership fees at the Mar-a-Lago, which cost $200,000 each, have been pocketed by Trump directly rather than through the Trump Organization. If we had a functioning Congress, this might be something they would want to look into.
Did everyone have a good holiday? I'm already looking forward to a Christmas break.
