I cannot stand this in-the-Trump-tank pastor so it's always good to see him taken down:
Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation just drew what appears to be its most direct line to date between President Trump's 2016 campaign and Russia.
At issue is whether the dogs truly help,
what they should be trained to do andwho should pay for them.
Here's the paragraph:
Fourth, the lies and withholding of documents were material to the Special Counsel’s Office’s investigation. That Gates and Person A were directly communicating in September and October 2016 was pertinent to the investigation. Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agents assisting the Special Counsel’s Office assess that Person A has ties to Russian intelligence service and had such ties in 2016. During his first interview with the Special Counsel’s Office, van der Zwaan admitted that he knew of that connection, stating that Gates told him Person A was a former Russian Intelligence Officer with GRU.
That Person A has had ties to Russian intelligence is not terribly surprising. Kilimnik's personal history has been examined extensively by the media, including The Washington Post. He has denied being involved in Russian intelligence, but he served in the Russian military and attended a Russian military foreign language university that is seen as a breeding ground for intelligence agents.

His Big Day at the Supreme Court
It seems almost impossible get through a day without a Stormy Story. I've said before tht the real impact these stories may have on Trump will be what would happen to his psycholgical defenses if Melania moves out, possibly going as far as getting a legal separation.
As "Trump rages, often alone in the residence on the top floor of the White House," where's Melania?
Here's one opinion about whether she deserves sympathy, and here's another much more politically relevant story:
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski hinted they’re hearing from inside sources that President Donald Trump is worried the first lady might be planning to leave the White House.
Brzezinski suggested in an earlier segment that Melania Trump may have signed a non-disclosure agreement with her husband, like adult film star Stormy Daniels — the “Morning Joe” co-hosts later said the president may be uncharacteristically silent on the matter out of fear for his wife.
“Melania Trump wields so much power at this point in time,” Brezinski said. “She could make a decision that would stop Trump in his tracks on many levels, especially if she decides to leave the White House.”
Scarborough pointed out they had largely stayed away from the Daniels story, but it had become too hard to ignore after the president’s lawyer counter-sued the porn actress — and MSNBC’s John Heilemann said the situation could end the president’s marriage.
“If she (Stormy) wins this case, does that open the floodgates?” (John) Heilemann said. “Then there’s one other matter which people talk about a lot when they speculate about this question.”
“Is there a prenuptial agreement between Melania and Donald Trump, and what does that say and why is he concerned about the timing of these allegations and whether or not the allegations he faces from Stormy Daniels or other women?” Heilemann added. “Where do they fall in the arc of his relationship with Melania Trump and what legal implications might that have for whatever prenup he certainly has with his current wife?”
