The best that RWNJ media could do is complain about media clips of Don Junior entering the men’s restroom yesterday as the third meeting with the committee staff was not the last. Mark Warner said they’re not finished.
But today’s bigger #TrumpRussia news is Mueller getting onto the Cambridge Analytica connections to the Trump campaign, which may map the reasons for justice obstruction, as well as the collusion. Now that Flynn is cooperating, the request for Cambridge Analytica emails includes matters involving Kushner among others.
Brad Parscale (Trump campaign digital director) and Cambridge Analytica have come under the microscope as congressional investigators probe whether voter information stolen by Russian hackers from election databases in several states made its way to the Trump campaign. Investigators are also examining whether the Trump campaign’s data firms coordinated with Russia to disseminate fake news and propaganda in particular states and districts.
The data operation Parscale directed was supervised by Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who has landed in Mueller’s crosshairs over his contacts with Russia’s ambassador and the CEO of a sanctioned Russian bank in December.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Mueller’s team has requested all emails from employees at the firm who worked with the campaign.
The request, which wasn’t previously known, was voluntary, as was another request the firm complied with from the House Intelligence Committee, the newspaper reported.
and in the dog-wagging ‘new’ SoS department ….

It may be that Trump’s conversation with James Woolsey at Mar-a-Lago aside from the Flynn plea bargain, might be more about the possibility of military action against the DPRK, much like there’s some agitation for such action by RW elements around some defunded Congressional commissions.
