Except the folks on FOX"News" are vibrating through the walls about 1) of course, because Hillary; 2) the government is corrupt, duh; and 3) thank God for guns.

Even the headline writer couldn't say "not guilty" on the front page. They write "Ex-Clinton campaign lawyer accused of lying to the FBI in Trump-Russia case learns his fate" Pathetic and obvious.

Oh, Kurt. The conspiracy wet dream is over.

Michael Sussmann found not guilty of lying to FBI in Durham investigation

Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann was acquitted Tuesday of lying to the FBI, in the first trial of special counsel John Durham's investigation.

The verdict is a major defeat for Durham and his Justice Department prosecutors, who have spent three years looking for wrongdoing in the Trump-Russia probe. He claimed Sussmann lied during a 2016 meeting in which he passed a tip to the FBI about Donald Trump and Russia.

The Washington, DC, federal jury deliberated for six hours over two days before reaching its verdict.

Big rally in town today. The number of people here (apparently) for it is mystifying enough, but I've seen some new merch out and about. 'Trump is the new Jesus" shirts, flags, hats, etc. I'm done. These folks are fucking nuts.

Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court justice, pressed Ariz. lawmakers to help reverse Trump’s loss, emails show


Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the conservative activist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, pressed Arizona lawmakers after the 2020 election to set aside Joe Biden’s popular-vote victory and choose “a clean slate of Electors,” according to emails obtained by The Washington Post.
…

The messages show that Thomas, a staunch supporter of Donald Trump, was more deeply involved in the effort to overturn Biden’s win than has been previously reported. In sending the emails, Thomas played a role in the extraordinary scheme to keep Trump in office by substituting the will of legislatures for the will of voters.

I honestly don't know.  Oz is a clown, but his name recognition might help him.  He'll be running against Fetterman, who I think wins regardless of whom he is up against.  He's got that "middle-PA" street cred that's going to be hard for OZ or Mr. Hedge fund to overcome.  Look at how Fetterman crushed Conner Lamb....it should have been closer.  Honestly...I think Fetterman will help the Dems on the Governor's side too.  He's a huge (both figuratively and literally) asset between Philly and Pittsburgh.   Now, he just needs to stay healthy.

Fiona Hill says Putin got 'frustrated many times' with Trump because the Russian leader 'had to keep explaining things' to him

 
 

Russian President Vladimir Putin often became frustrated with President Donald Trump over his lack of knowledge on geopolitical issues, Fiona Hill said, adding that this played into Moscow's decision on the timing of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

One of the reasons Putin invaded Ukraine with President Joe Biden in the White House was that he expected the US to "sue for peace" and thought it would be better to deal with Biden than trying to negotiate with someone like Trump, whom the Russian leader had "to explain everything to all the time," Hill, who served as the top Russia advisor on the National Security Council under Trump, said Tuesday at a Chicago Council on Global Affairs event.

"He thought that somebody like Biden — who's a transatlanticist, who knows all about NATO, who actually knows where Ukraine is, and actually knows something about the history, and is very steeped in international affairs — would be the right person to engage with," Hill said.

"You could see that he got frustrated many times with President Trump because he had to keep explaining things, and Putin doesn't like to do that," Hill said, adding: "Even though he loves to be able to spin his own version of events, he wants to have predictability in the person that he's engaging with."

A number of Trump's former advisors have said the ex-president had a poor grasp of global affairs. The former national security advisor John Bolton, for example, said Trump once asked whether Finland was part of Russia.

Similarly, Trump's former White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly also once said Trump "doesn't know any history at all, even some of the basics on the US," says Hill's new book, "There Is Nothing for You Here: Finding Opportunity in the Twenty-First Century," which was published last year.

In the book, Hill writes that Trump's meager comprehension of international affairs was a "major liability" for US national security.

"Whenever he got to meetings and the conversation started, it seemed like the first time he was hearing things from world leaders," she writes.

Trump did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Would love to check out TX sometime. I get there impression that there are many distinct regions and cultures. A complex place.

Almost 5 years ago, I interviewed for a job in NYC (3 times)...and the offer letter came through with a move to San Antonio (the HQ). 

I took the job and commuted for about 15 months...it wasn't a good fit, so the move never happened.

The wife visited a few times when I stayed for multiple weeks, and we got to see some of the surrounding areas...hill country, Austin, San Antonio.   It's a really interesting place.  The people are great, the food is great, and the overall quality of life seems pretty high.  I love driving...so the distances between things don't really bother me...but it's BIG.  

Politics are to be avoided.   Opinions from my co-workers were hard and fast.  Attempting to extract why they support most things is futile...it is what it is, and they don't really wanna talk about it.  I was there for the Beto vs. Ted 2018 Senate race, and it was really interesting to see in person.

Regarding LBJ...we went to his ranch, which is now a national park.  It was a lot better than I expected. Near Austin, maybe the best brewery experience we've had is at Jester King in the hills outside of town.  Very cool place.

Houston and Dallas are (IMO) a bit too Urban vs elsewhere.  Austin and San Antonio have grown like crazy, but they still feel "smaller".   The weather in the evenings is great, and you can find places like this:  The filling station and The friendly spot to hang out, within a mile of the more touristy Riverwalk. 

Texas is definitely worth a visit...

Have you read any of Caro's LBJ books? Caro can be a bit heavy-handed in his good-vs-evil depictions but he's an amazing researcher and great writer. 



Haven't read Caro, but I'm familiar with his work.  I'll have to check it out.
