Tuesday afternoon news round up

Tuesday afternoon news round up

Hello, my lovelies! We have a bunch of news for the round up today.

First off, former House Intelligence Committee chair Devin Nunes is suing Twitter for allowing parody accounts of his mother and his cow. No, I’m not kidding. The New York Times has it about right:

You can read more about his lawsuit here. For virile, mighty alpha males, Trump supporters sure exhibit a lack of testicular fortitude. I pity the poor judge who gets this suit on his/her docket and has to control the urge to spend the entire first session addressing the suit laughing.

Meanwhile, in l’affaire Cohen, documents related to the search warrants obtained for former Trump consigliere Michael Cohen were released today. The big take-away is that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had a warrant for Cohen’s email for almost a year before the infamous FBI raid. So, we can assume what wealth of criminality Mueller was privy to before lowering the hammer. You can read more here and here.

Finally, we turn to Bernie Sanders. Today, he hired noted Berner Twitter trolls David Sirota and Briahna Joy Gray to run his communications staff. Many of us hoped that, even if Bernie was Bernie, he would run a different campaign. By hiring people who routinely lie or exaggerate for him online—which they were doing for free!—I think that hope just went into the wastebin. Obviously, Sanders sees another scorched-earth campaign as his only road to the nomination.

What else have you got?
