TROUBLE!


Remember last week when there was all of a sudden news that the FBI’s investigation into Trump-Russia-Obstruction of Justice-Russia-Pee Hookers-Michael Flynn-Russia had reached a "senior White House adviser"? It was all so (Jared) vague! Everybody on Twitter was like WHO IS (JARED!) IT? Is it somebody like Steve Bannon (JARED!) or is it somebody in the Trump family (J-A-R-E-D)? Literally everybody was pretty sure it was Jared.

WELL FOOLED YOU, YOU WERE WRONG, BECAUSE IT WAS MELANIA.

Just kidding it was Jared.

NBC got the scoopty doo, and so did the Washington Post, so we'll quote from WaPo because fuck Andy Lack:

Investigators are focusing on a series of meetings held by Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and an influential White House adviser, as part of their probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and related matters, according to people familiar with the investigation.

Kushner, who held meetings in December with the Russian ambassador and a banker from Moscow, is being investigated because of the extent and nature of his interactions with the Russians, the people said.

Ooh ooh, pick Wonkette, pick Wonkette! We know about those meetings! We wrote about one of them to you in March, explaining that Jared had a secret back-door meeting during the Trump transition AT TRUMP TOWER with both Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. (When we say "back door," we don't mean like in the butt, we literally mean the Russian came in the back door.) Then later in March we learned about a second meeting with the Russian ambassador that Jared didn't actually actually go to (probably getting a pedicure) so he sent his "deputy," which is hilarious because it means that Jared has a "deputy." We ALSO learned about a third meeting, where Jared met with this other Russian dude Sergey Gorkov, who is the head of a Russian state-owned bank called Vnesheconombank (VEB). We don't know what they talked about (hair products probably) but that was a meeting Jared surely did fail to report! That bank, by the way, is under sanctions right now!

Fun fact: Gorkov ALSO used to be deputy chair of another Russian state-owned bank called Sberbank, which is currently being represented by Marc Kasowitz, the lawyer Trump has just retained to defend him against all things "Russia scandal." And Sberbank was a sponsor of Trump's 2013 Moscow Miss Universe pageant, and the CEO threw a sexxxxxxxy dinner during that trip where Trump got to meet 10 of Russia's finest oligarchs and OH FUCK Y'ALL RACHEL MADDOW'S GLENN BECK WHITE BOARD IS GONNA BE BALLIN' TONIGHT.

Jared was also there at that weird cocktail party/drag show/Amway party way back in April of 2016 at the Mayflower Hotel, where Trump, Jeff Sessions, the Russian ambassador, three other ambassadors, and a few other folks got together to discuss (???????) and then Trump gave a foreign policy speech about Russia that could charitably described as a "rim job."

Now the WaPo is careful to say that nobody has said Jared is a "target" of the FBI's investigation, he is just a person of interest. So he could be innocent or guilty or just a dumb dipshit with great abs who's stuck up in the middle of this. But this does mean the FBI is looking at Jared's flawless skin under a microscope, and presumably when they're done acting like a common Ivanka by ogling his skin, they are also looking at all his weird dealings with Russia.

Is he going to get LOCK HIM UP-ed? We sure don't know! But maybe this is why Ivanka 'n' Jared all of a sudden decided to up and leave Daddy's Big Exciting Trip To See The Foreigns early, because SOMEBODY was in T-R-O-U-B-L-E.

Anyway, DRIP DRIP DRIP, that is the sound of the Russia news that comes out every night, and also of the cocktail we need to go make ourselves right now, goodbye.

DING DONG THE WITCH IS ... quite likely to land on her feet. But for today, the New York Times reports Dana Loesch is out of a job, the latest casualty in the war between the NRA and its longtime advertising company Ackerman McQueen. But every cloud has a silver bullet lining, since Dana will have more free time now to spend on her favorite hobby. We can't wait to see which cartoon character she photoshops Klan hoods onto next. Maybe she'll branch out and start putting Nazi armbands onto Buzz Lightyear. Oh, we would be so triggered!

As one of the most visible characters on NRATV with literal hundreds of viewers for each of her fascist rants, Dana Loesch was a tireless advocate for the gunhumpers lobby, always ready to call out "tragedy dry-humping whores," threatening to "fist" or perhaps "fisk" the New York Times, and expressing her hope that the Mueller Report would die in an "AIDS fire."

With the first Democratic debate coming up tonight (join us here for livebloog, dummies!), Elizabeth Warren is out with yet another policy proposal, this time to guarantee that all Americans have the easiest possible access to voting in federal elections. A good bit of it overlaps with the House Democrats' proposal, earlier this year, to guarantee voting rights. But Warren goes even beyond that ambitious plan a bit, because she is a badass who wants elections to be fair and free from computer hacking -- and from less exotic forms of fuckery. Needless to say, her insistence that all Americans should be able to vote will be decried as some kind of power grab, because that's what it is: a plan to grab power away from the Republicans who have engineered electoral advantages well beyond their actual support among Americans. You can see the bumper stickers now: FAIRNESS ISN'T FAIR.
