6:44 Don't break a tooth.

RIP John Pinto, former NM State Senator and Navajo Code Talker, aged 94. We salute you, sir.

Daily Beast - No argument here.

NYT - Did someone page James O'Keefe?

AlterNet - My confusion about what kind of testimony is actually contemplated can be summed up in this quote from your quote from the article: "Instead, Mueller would like to testify to the committee publicly." Excuse me? I have seen it suggested that Mueller may have a [legitimate] concern about becoming a target for assassination. I have no idea whether tht's accurate, but, if it is, testifying in camera to the committee with a full, unredacted transcript released soon after, would at least allow him to go into hiding.

Cartoon - Why would they appeal? It was decided the way they wanted.

Trump giving Barr the ability to declassify anything he wants in order to go after political opponents, something he said he would not do during the campaign, is chilling. This has the potential to expose deep cover assets, our entire intelligence community and its operational methods for no legitimate reason at all. It cannot be allowed. He is unstable and dangerous, waving off any intelligence concerns.

The altered video of Nancy Pelosi, propagated by a far right group known for this tactic, shared by Giuliani and still ON Trump's twitter timeline in a tweet in which he called her crazy and said, again, what a stable genius he was, is ludicrous and ought be actionable. Despicable tactics at any time particularly now that he has refused to "work" at all, violating his oath of office. The first president ever to go on strike - something he'd not tolerate in any of his "businesses". There is no bar too low for these people.

I understand Mueller not wanting to be at the center, but he put himself there when he took the job. He can't now dictate anything. He wrote the report, Congress has every right, as do the American people, to hear from him directly why it says what it does. Not a difficult question at all and one I expect to be handled readily.

DB: He wants to get rid of the 'treasonous investigators', and jailing anyone who speaks out against him, by investigating them. Day by day, step by step, he's getting more unhinged. Very, very concerning to me. (actually from day one that he became the bogus potus)...

NYT: Actually I read about that this morning...I can't figure out why he didn't take it down, YT did.

AN: I'm hoping that he comes in to testify and soon. We need him to! Semper Fi, Mueller. Own it!!

Cartoon: Of course!

Hope that you get a chance to rest today/evening. Tell Wendy I said HI...and take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

DB: It's spelled out right in front of the world, yet he still gets away with all of evil doing?? Something certainly is wrong. I pray that someone who has authority, finally steps up and puts a halt to tRump evil adventures immediately..
NYT: It's a disgrace to see that tRump and now his evil lawyer, Giuliani have to play such vicious video games. fAkebook owner, M F, not taking them down when asked, should be fined and punished. Glad I never joined fakebook. These type of games remind me of when they'd have elections in our high schools. Students trying to belittle others. Never thought I'd see it being done by so-called adult.
AN" Hate to tell Mueller that with him dragging his feet, it's making the situation even worse.
Hope you have a good rest of your weekend. That you can get more accomplished for your future move that won't wear you down too much.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

The more I read about Republicans these days, the more convinced I am that their ancestors were in the control group for evolution.
