From Russia With Love

The Trump Presidency Begins Under the Pall of Russian Intrigues
Even as Donald Trump prepares to take the oath of office, U.S. intelligence agencies are reportedly investigating the several of his associates as part of a broader probe into the Russian government’s interference in the presidential election and potential links between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.


I find it plausible that Melania is a deep cover KGB agent. She is the first communist bred First Lady of the United States of America after all. Plus on Netflix I watched every episode of "The Americans."


As of now, America has no ambassadors in countries everywhere. Trump fired them all as of 12:01 for no comprehensible reason. - Kurt Eichenwald

Unleash The Lawyers
President Trump's hotel in Washington is in violation of its lease with the government and could also run afoul of a Constitutional clause meant to thwart foreign influence in politics, according to a watchdog group.










FACTCHECK: Trump said that his nominees have "the highest IQ of any Cabinet assembled." In actuality, a nominee like Energy Secretary-designate Rick Perry does not have an IQ high enough to assemble a cabinet from IKEA.- Andy Borowitz

Republican Senator Wants To Know What's Up With The FBI and Russia
The night before Donald Trump was sworn in as president, the New York Times dropped a bombshell: intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been examining intercepted communications and financial transactions in an investigation of possible contacts between Trump associates and Russian officials. This report seemed to confirm previous indications that the US government has collected sensitive intelligence about interactions between Trump insiders and Russians. And hours before the inauguration, I ran into Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who has been one of the few Republicans to call for a special investigation of the Russian hacking that helped Trump, and I asked him about this latest development.

Tape shows Trump contradicting himself (again) on Putin meeting
President-elect Donald Trump told a radio interviewer in October 2015 that he had met Vladimir Putin “one time … a long time ago” and that he “got along with him great” — a statement that conflicts with his later denials during the campaign that he had ever met or spoken with the Russian president.


I dread inauguration day when a sane eloquent president turns the keys over to the bull in the china shop -- pun intended.
