Judge Kimba Wood, the federal judge overseeing the case involving the handling of evidence seized by the FBI during a raid of Michael Cohen’s offices and home, signaled to both sides that she is likely to appoint a special master to go through that material and decide what prosecutors get to see.

Amy Howe, one of the most astute observers of the Supreme Court, was in the room for the oral argument over Trump’s travel ban (the second one, which superseded the initial one) and says that it’s likely the court will uphold the policy by showing deference to the president on national security matters.

White House Budget Director and head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Mick Mulvaney gave a speech to more than a thousand banking executives this week and basically told them that they need to buy off politicians to help weaken the agency he has been appointed to destroy. I mean, run. No, destroy. That is his entire goal, and Trump’s. (more…) Read more

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, who has no qualifications for that job other than providing political cover due to his race and poor upbringing, wants Congress to pass a bill that would triple the rent for the poorest Americans who get housing assistance.

Alek Minassian, the Canadian man who killed ten people and injured 15 more by driving his van into a crowd of people, was reportedly another Elliot Rodger, the California man who killed a raft of people because, he claimed, women wouldn’t have sex with him. The CBC reports: (more…) Read more

Travis Reinking, the guy who killed four people at a Waffle House in Tennessee the other day, was like an all-you-can-eat buffet of inane right-wing beliefs.
