And It’s Not Even Noon Yet

Michael Flynn and other advisers to Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the 2016 presidential race, current and former U.S. officials familiar with the exchanges told Reuters.

Six of the previously undisclosed contacts described to Reuters were phone calls between Sergei Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, and Trump advisers, including Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser, three current and former officials said.

And here’s the kicker.  In January, the Trump White House denied any contact between the Trump campaign and the Russians.  Flat ass denied it.

Please remember that the day ain’t over and we’ve been averaging about 3 blockbusters a day.  Stay tuned to your local station for further instructions.

  1. Suggestion for a hypothetical Donald Trump reading list:

    Crime and Punishment – by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

  2. Hypothetical. I see what you did there.

  3. I had forgotten that Don McGahn was Tom DeLay’s ethics lawyer. I know et his and Tom DeLay do not belong in the same sentence.
    Ole’ Tom had some Russia issues too.
    Wonder if Mr.McGahn does too?

  4. I wish so much that we had an actual functioning government that could deal with this garbage.

    Trump’s default setting is to lie. He has done it all his life in the business world, stiffing contractors, defrauding students at the failed Trump University scam, the steaks, the wine etc. He hasn’t been held to account for any of it, except to buy his way out of criminal charges. So the lie about Russian contacts is totally in character. I am told that lying to the FBI is a felony and can get you jail time. Start the meter.

    There’s actually a shortage of reporters these days. The pace of the blockbusters that JJ mentions are beginning to outrun the media.

    Too bad there isn’t a patriotic woman, in the interest of democracy, who would be willing to soil another blue dress in the Oval Office, just so we can really get the impeachment of Rump going…

  9. Papa… okay… not for all the gold in Fort Knox, but for the good of the country and the environment and the world… but I’d have to get REALLY drunk first.

    Oh doG Rhea, that much alcohol would be life threatening. Killing a few (hundred) brain cells over a fun Saturday night is one thing but contemplating some sex act with Drumpf would require the wholesale destruction of billions of brain cells in a very short period of time. Your IQ would drop to about 10 or 12 and you would vote Republican for the rest of your life. The sacrifice is toooooo much.

    Plus you’d go around saying Hook’em horns or Gig’em every time someone spoke your name. 🙂

  13. Well, there would have to be a bag over his head, and one over mine, and he’d have to be tied and gagged, and (mama, look away) I guarantee a hand is all I’d be using. On second thought, the bag over his head should be plastic and tightly cinched on the neck, and with any luck I wouldn’t have to do anything. And this is only if I get a guarantee that everybody he’s put in charge of departments etc. that they want to destroy gets fired immediately, starting with Pruitt at the EPA and those bozos on the new “vote fraud” commission. I’m a green patriot but I’m not cheap.

    The Blue Dress gambit huh. Maybe someone who is deaf and blind.
    What we really don’t know is, is Trump’s itty bitty center piece UP to the challenge.

  15. @Rhea, you shouldn’t worry. Based upon the size of his hands, his “joy stick” is probably so small you wouldn’t feel anything anyway. Wear a blindfold tho so you don’t ruin your eyesight.

    Rhea, you earned a gold star just by kind of offering. But I think that the Russians have pictures and videos of traitor trump in compromising positions. Saw a line he supposedly said that Russian prostitutes would do ‘anything’. Guess that referred to *urp* sex with dickless donnie.

  17. @Tilphousia, you remind me of a comment made by a prominent British politician’s ex-wife some years ago– that sex with him was “like having a large wardrobe fall on you with a tiny key in the lock.”
