Politico lit a bit of a fire this morning, with a story saying Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was already threatening primaries against fellow Dem members. Is she? Isn’t she? Is that her “brand?” Should she wait? Answer: I don’t know.

Reports for the Senate Intelligence Committee say the Russians were targeting Mueller, too. Just like Trump was, months after the election. Weird! Meanwhile, Americans are guessing where Mueller might be headed next. And guessing at what might have closed the entire 5th floor of the federal courthouse last week. The same courthouse where we waited for notorious spy Michael Flynn to be sentenced today, before that whole thing blew up. Speaking of which, it actually started looking a little dicey for him when indictments were unsealed against one of his “business parnters.”

The Republicans, having lost another election, decide they won anyway.

Saudish Arabia is paying for its war in Yemen like Mexico’s paying for the wall.

Back to Flynn and his “storied” career: Where was he radicalized? Seems it was from a steady diet of conservative “news.” Which, when you think about it, isn’t all that different from Dick Cheney’s “stovepiping” of unvetted, “raw intelligence.” Guess that must have been why it was so dangerous.
