Well, today’s summary can be short and sweet, even if the content isn’t. The morning’s news: Mueller busts Manafort for witness tampering, and; Trump throws a tantrum and cancels the Eagles’ White House visit because nobody wanted to go (but says it was to protest their kneeling, which they didn’t do).

Law professors study the pardon power—judiciously, as they will—while Trump acts again, creating new “realities.”

Remember all that bluster about what a huge and tyrannical danger was posed by raiding Michael Cohen’s house, office (and hotel room, which he had for some reason), because he was “an attorney,” and the sanctity of attorney-client relations, something, something, yadda yadda? Well, it turns out that was all garbage, because almost nothing seized was privileged material.

Scott Pruitt is a filthy, disgusting beast. And he also wanted to buy a used mattress from the DC Trump hotel, for some reason.
