The Pee Pee Tapes (and other Russia/Trump news)

Special counsel looking into dossier as part of Russia probe: report


Special Counsel Robert's Mueller's investigation of Russia's efforts to meddle in the 2016 election now includes inquiries into a controversial, unverified opposition research dossier on President Trump compiled by a former British intelligence officer, according to a Reuters report.



Reuters reported Wednesday that Mueller's team of investigators has assumed control of multiple inquiries into allegations that the Kremlin sought to interfere in the election to sway it in President Trump's favor.

Russian-linked Facebook ads targeted Michigan and Wisconsin


A number of Russian-linked Facebook ads specifically targeted Michigan and Wisconsin, two states crucial to Donald Trump's victory last November, according to four sources with direct knowledge of the situation.




Some of the Russian ads appeared highly sophisticated in their targeting of key demographic groups in areas of the states that turned out to be pivotal, two of the sources said. The ads employed a series of divisive messages aimed at breaking through the clutter of campaign ads online, including promoting anti-Muslim messages, sources said.
It has been unclear until now exactly which regions of the country were targeted by the ads. And while one source said that a large number of ads appeared in areas of the country that were not heavily contested in the elections, some clearly were geared at swaying public opinion in the most heavily contested battlegrounds.

This is pretty strong evidence that the Trump people colluded with Russia.  From my reading, this is the only kind of lintel you could get from people *inside* a campaign.  And you know who knows way more about this than anyone else?  Mueller.  Bam!

This story along with the piece about the dropped NYS case against the Trump kids both led me to this thought:  these people are NOT smart, they are sloppy entitled criminals, and their hubris is likely to bring them down.  I really believe that.
