    But hard, what stench from Twitter comes?

    Craigslist help wanted ad:

    Posted a day ago


    1650 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W

    compensation: Client is a hugely wealthy man. Hugely successful. Everyone says it.
    employment type: contract

    Seeking a lead attorney to represent client involved in an ongoing Federal investigation. Must be familiar with laws and procedures around discovery, executive privilege, international financing of licensed real estate, election law and the Logan Act. Working knowledge of social media, especially Twitter is a plus, as is a better than average knowledge of the adult film industry and a collection of Playboy magazines from 1985-2010. Must look the part – Gregory Peck or Tommy Lee Jones type. Prior appearances on Fox News a huge plus.
    No fatties.

    Must be prepared to work with a client who is very forceful and opinionated about his defense and is his own best counsel.

    Basically your job boils down to keeping him from testifying under oath and hoping the rest comes out in the wash.

      Pols, et al – Is anyone else seeing weird formatting on this page? Like the comments on the right where the posts usually are, and in a smaller font? I've tried erasing history and refreshing – still weird.

    Fascinating- looks like all the press this AM on yesterday's Magellan poll is focused exclusively on Polis/ Kennedy and leaving out the even more suprising results in the AG race…

    Talking Points Memo is on a roll looking into Trump's co-conspirators in treason. It's highly worth paying for the premium version.

    Gates made a deal with Mueller. Manafort and van der Zwaan on the other hand have refused to plead guilty, and now Mueller is throwing the book at them. These guys are neck-deep active agents for Russia, and will face lengthy prison sentences.

    So why haven't they talked?

    For one, van der Zwaan has a rich oligarch father in law, so he is financially set if he can survive white-collar prison for a few years. Manafort doesn't have a soft landing, unless Trump pardons him for his crimes against the state, but still prison is better than dead. 

    To the last point: Putin tucked the proverbial horse's head under the sheets by assassinating some ex-Russians in Europe and the US. You've got a choice Vanny-boy or Manny-boy: prison or nerve gas against you and your family. 

    Message sent and received.
