Mama said knock you out.


Happy Friday, it is indictment/resignation o' clock, and we are just wondering what combination of those is going to happen today! But while we breathlessly anticipate that, there's yet another story in the Robert Mueller Is Now Doing This genre to add to our file:

Special counsel Robert Mueller is assembling a case for criminal charges against Russians who carried out the hacking and leaking of private information designed to hurt Democrats in the 2016 election, multiple current and former government officials familiar with the matter tell NBC News.

Much like the indictment Mueller filed last month charging a different group of Russians in a social media trolling and illegal-ad-buying scheme, the possible new charges are expected to rely heavily on secret intelligence gathered by the CIA, the FBI, the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), several of the officials say. [...]

Sources say he has long had sufficient evidence to make a case, but strategic issues could dictate the timing. Potential charges include violations of statutes on conspiracy, election law as well as the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. One U.S. official briefed on the matter said the charges are not imminent, but other knowledgeable sources said they are expected in the next few weeks or months.

Could Americans be indicted for helping out with this operation? MAYBE SHRUGGIE EMOTICON WHO KNOWS! Stay tuned!

To briefly recap, this week, we have learned that Mueller is doing the following enjoyable activities:

  • Taking a very careful look at Donald Trump's Russian activities in the months and years directly before he decided/was instructed to run for president, going back to the Moscow Miss Universe pageant in 2013, all the way into the campaign, specifically surrounding the failed Moscow Trump Tower project. We personally believe this is, on a very meta level, the bull's eye of the entire conspiracy. (Also, Mueller just might have stumbled onto a certain PEE TAPE!)
  • Asking specific questions about what Donald Trump knew about the Hillary Clinton/DNC emails Russia hacked and laundered through front operations like WikiLeaks, and when did he know it. This is, on a micro level, the essence of "NO COLLUSION, NO COLLUSION, YOU ARE THE COLLUSION."
  • Oh by the way, he's still working to nail Trump as hard as possible on obstruction of justice, looking at the president's attempts to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions last summer, because President Dick Baby was (and still is) infuriated Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation.

Brick by brick by brick. That is how Mueller is building his case. He is building a big beautiful brick house, and when it is done, it could literally be the Big House for Donald Trump and nobody will be able to huff and puff and blow it all down.

So now we have this leak that sometime -- maybe today, maybe next week, maybe sometime in May when the weather is fine -- Mueller is going to drop some indictments on the Russians who participated in the hacks into the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign. And Donald Trump will stomp his feet and clap his hands and bitch and moan, because Mueller refuses to interview all the 400-pounders of New Jersey to see if they are the real hacker, because Mueller knows the Russians are the hackers, and that they did it to help get Trump elected.

Will the Russians go to jail? Nah probably not, unless they are dumb enough to try to travel to a country the United States has an extradition agreement with, but that's not the point. He's building this case in such a way as to make it very easy for the members of the Republican party who are still patriots deep down in their hearts to vote to impeach Trump when Mueller gets to the grand finale. That's what's going on here.

And Mueller is nowhere near done. Like we said in the headline, he's just now getting to the GOOD PART.

Yeah, that's my daughter and I made this

Guys!

Last

month

was

crazy!

First, NASA sent its last message to the Mars Opportunity rover! THEN scientists said that all the insects are dying but not the human-looking ones in the GOP. As if THAT wasn't enough, some brave pendejos with grandes cojones are going to try and get seafloor creatures from under a giant ice shelf in the ANTARCTIC!

So, yeah, all three of those stories happened last month. Let's cover each in a science lightning round.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is terrible at her job. Her objectives and overall mission are evil, but if it's any consolation she can't effectively implement them. After buying her Cabinet position at Sotheby's, DeVos has spent the past two years trying to roll back Obama-era policies designed to protect and actually educate students. Unfortunately for her evil schemes, federal courts keep smacking down her slimy efforts. It's getting embarrassing.

DeVos recently had to cancel $150 million in student loan debt after courts said her attempts to stop the "borrow defense" regulations from taking effect were in fact illegal. Last week, she was forced to instruct colleges to follow the Obama rule barring mandatory arbitration agreements. She got kicked in the teeth earlier this month when a federal judge ruled she'd acted illegally ... again. This time, DeVos tried to delay an Obama-era guideline that required states to address racial disparities in their special education programs. Judge Tanya S. Chutkan called the delay "arbitrary" and "capricious."

The rule, drafted under the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, would require states to identify districts with "significant disproportionality" in the number of minority students channeled into special education services, segregated in restrictive classroom settings or disciplined.

OK, so what was the "education" secretary's issue with this rule? We want to imagine there's some rationale we're not seeing and DeVos is more than just some yacht-collecting monster.
