D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine sued President Trump’s inaugural committee and his family business, alleging that the committee overpaid the Trump Organization’s Washington hotel for event space to enrich the company

henry,

And to which party does the DC Attorney General belong, and why has it taken them THREE YEARS to discover they might have overpaid?

anonamom, I just typed a long comment about that Eli Lake Commentary article then deleted it -- he was so 'objective' -- made me want to stick a fork in his eye. The media is free of bias and not political-- or something, blah, blah, blah.

It made me sick with anger when I read this:

"In any case, the “deep-state” theory suggests there is a governmental hive mind, an unelected bureaucracy that runs things while officials like Comey sit on top, clueless and imagining themselves powerful.

"You can see how the “deep-state” theory might let the actual saboteurs off the hook. Comey, McCabe, Brennan, and others had a mix of motivations for making the decisions that they did. To say they were acting on behalf of an unelected bureaucracy is to absolve them."

Absolve them????????????

Jack is Back!

Watch how the UK and USA make a big trade deal. Deal with it Euros.

Sekulow on w Brett: "Quite confident of where this is going."
"Impeachment not designed to address policy differences."
"Idea that this reaches impeachment is absurd."
"Not concerned about witnesses. Prepared for every contingency."

John S

Joan, ridiculing the idea of a deep state is a great example of leftists always making a super-technical interpretation of something Trump says, i.e. taking him literally but not seriously. Every week we hear about federal employees saying they are working to bring down Trump from within

Jane,
I am way behind. I just saw your TV problem and maybe your Outdoor TV / remote issue had been resolved, but it sounds like a "source" issue to me. I'm guessing that you source is not set on the HDMI from the cable but is on Wifi or some other input? Hope this has already been resolved by the excellent brain trust here at JOM. May not be the issue but I will find out later tonight when I catch up.

joan

Yes, John S, and how Lake could write such a long article, detailing all of the ways the FBI and members of the previous administration abused their position and our laws without Lake showing a bit of outrage is astounding.

The Infamous Ignatz

Eli Lake is like Paul Mirengoff; they know the truth, but it might upset their little picnic so they only admit half of it so they can keep gnawin that drumstick and tater salad like everything's ok and there isn't a tornado headed their way.
Pretending the tools on top are oblivious rather than co-conspirators is a Goliath of a strawman but strawmen of any size don't fair too well in twisters.

Prayers for you and your family, rse--you have been through such a lot already!

Men before women: Schumer, Blumenthal, Sanders, Kaine, Leahy, Lee,Romney, Warren, Harris, Hirono--see? bipartisan!

I think only some of you read Gulliver's Travels by Swift in high school. First he meets the Liliputians (little people), then a host of others including the Brogdingnagians (giants), Laputians (people who carry all the words they need in actual form in satchels on their backs), Yahoos (ape-like people--basically what Swift thinks of ordinary people), and the Houyhnhyms (wise horses, better than people). When he returns to England at the end of his travels, he can't stand the stink of people and spends his time in the stables with the horses.

Catsmeat

Oh, and Ig, if you are going to keep writing such lapidary Swiftian prose you are going to have to get used to us calling for you to get a larger audience, even if just Milady's Boudoir!

Ugly ugly day in Florida - coldest since I’ve been here. Will hit 70 tomorrow MM, so don’t worry.

The moar better part about that dumb bitch comparing herself to Kellyanne was her using war references to justify it. She makes a point of including her “service” as a JAG in her bio.

Yeah. A real warfighter. (rolls eyes)

Wrong resort and state, Ig. Sadly, Jawn F’ing Kerry pollutes this neck o’ the woods periodically.

I have to wonder what methods the gentle Chinese authorities are using to quarantine a city of 11 million people, many of whom may already be carriers and who simultaneously no doubt are quite determined to not be stuck in a pest hole, even if it means hoofing it.

Thanks for the weather forecast.

Daughter is coming down with some sort of flu/virus. She is talking to the airline now about rescheduling.

Poor thing! She has been looking forward to this all week and then to get sick!

The Infamous Ignatz

--Is this a trick question?--

Was just noting that no matter what they do or how egregious it is, it's always inadvertent.
Was just wondering if they had ever done anything not inadvertently which presumably would then be advertent. :)

The Infamous Ignatz

--Iggy, all flights and trains out of Wuhan have been cancelled.--

I know. Just sayin, if this keeps up there's gonna be a whole lot of people trying to get out of there any way they can.

A big chunk of the millions wanting in or out of Wuhan are going to defy this quarantine.

Think Thanksgiving, Christmas and 4th of July all mixed together, and a compelling desire to be with family and friends.

Just for the record, during those years I used to watch CNBC John Harwood was the most vile, biased, bone-headed twit on that network by a country mile and that's a place where Steve Liesman worked.

Former NFL receiver Antonio Brown has a warrant for his arrest over a burglary and assault.

He's a major train wreck in progress. I saw a really ugly video featuring him completely out of his mind. Does he have any family who can intercede?

DrJ

For some good news, I have signed a commitment letter with NIH for my overhead rates. There still are a couple of steps to go, but we are nearing the end.

There is a warning that the process can take "up to six months." Mine will take about 11 months.

In the mean time, I've essentially had to cover all of my overhead costs. These costs are real. Of course there is no way to recover my personal expense in covering them, though I can recover what was not paid earlier, and it really messes up my taxes.

Captain Hate

Happy birthday, maryrose.

Re the article for Milady’s Boudouir. It might be interesting to learn what the cat skinner is wearing, but it might be even better to get a description of what Milady is NOT wearing.

Narciso

Ok whose the cat skinner?

DrJ

narc, they claim they are severely understaffed, which probably is true. It also does not help that I'm very small fry.

Supposedly they expedited the process. Without my complaining it would have taken even longer.

CH, as expected, he has sympathizers blaming CTE acquired courtesy of Vontaze Burfict.

Just as likely it’s a psychiatric problem combined with drugs, given he need not worry about NFL testing.
