I’m trying to relax and enjoy the weekend. Tomorrow is a Wendy day. It’s also a holy day in the Church of the Ellipsoid Orb. My Broncos visit the Eagles for morning worship, and it is televised here. I’ll have to ask Wendy for an application of Vaseline after my shower to prepare for the game. May the Holy Ellipsoid Orb bless your team, unless it is the one slaughtering mine.

From Daily Kos: Marc Lotter, former spokesman for the roundly denied by Americans Pence campaign and current mouthpiece for the trying-to-keep-Mike-Pence-out-of-jail-please campaign, was on Nicole Wallace’s MSNBC show Thursday. Wallace was holding a roundtable to discuss the current state of what we know about the Mueller investigation and more specifically how terrifying it must be for White House officials to know that George Papadopoulos had pled guilty months ago and may very well have been wired while having meetings with other officials. Lotter came on with the kind of incompetent bluster that usually only passes for a Fox News opening monologue where he said that Papadopoulos was both a low level guy with no access and also a guy with high level access who was incompetent. Did your brain freeze yet? Wallace was having none of it.
Barf Bag Alert!!
Woooo Hoooo Nicole! Did she tear that Pence troll a new asshole, or what? RESIST!!
From TPM: Democrats on Capitol Hill want answers from Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
This week’s deluge of fresh information from congressional and federal investigators revealed two previously undisclosed instances in which Sessions was allegedly directly informed about contacts between Russia and Trump campaign staffers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.
Though Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) cautioned that perjury allegations were based on a “very careful standard,” he and other top Democrats claim Sessions appears to have failed to disclose the extent of what he knew about these contacts in his testimony to Congress.
That testimony has varied in its specificity. In June, Sessions gave a flat “no” to the Senate Intelligence Committee when asked if he was “aware of any communications” between Trump campaign officials “about Russia or Russian interests in the United States” prior to Trump’s inauguration. He offered a narrower response before the Senate Judiciary Committee in October, saying only that he had seen nothing “that would indicate collusion with Russians to impact the campaign” when asked if he’d ever overheard conversations with campaign staffers “who talked about meeting with the Russians.”
However Sessions chooses to interpret lawmakers’ questions, we now know of at least three instances in which he was allegedly told about or personally participated in communications with Russian officials or institutions during the 2016 campaign.
Click through for the rest. While it is now possible to nail KKK Beauregard for perjury, I think we want him where he is, for now. He cannot interfere with the Mueller investigation, because he has recused himself. If Trump gets to replace Sessions, the replacement will definitely interfere. RESIST!!
