    1. Pence too, huh? Will there be a special prosecutor for him now? We'll have special prosecutors coming out of our ears! Oh, wait. Pence is a republican. So, no worries about him having classified documents. :P

    2. Funny...Wil was just saying this afternoon that there needs to be a different process for documents. ALL documents would be sent to the National Archives first, so they can retrieve the sensitive documents; then they others can go wherever they ought to be.

    3. Somebody has finally cottoned to the possibility that document management is a problem in the federal government. What I would guess is that resentment of FOIA has led to an ever enthusiastic use of the "secret" stamp. I think it was Mary McCrory who explained that only documents with certain code words had to be kept absolutely secure, which is why the classification of the documents was never an issue in the warrant to Trump. The issue was just that he had stolen government property and our legal system is very serious about protecting property. That is also true at the Capitol. So, for example, the fellows who sprayed and incapacitated the officer who then died of a heart attack could not be charged with homicide because the coroner ruled the death from natural causes. The spray left no physical evidence of a weapon.
      Perhaps that is why cops deploy tear gas against protesters and only get upset when the canisters are thrown back at them. A physical assault that leaves no visible or permanent damage is a mere misdemeanor, unless the victim is a cop. Then a verbal challenge can be called an assault. Our jail is full of people accused of obstructing an officer and then the charges get dismissed. People are so glad to just miss a couple days work that they don't bother to object.

    1. Twelve countries ready to transfer around 100 Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine [Click] “meeting participants agreed that countries with Leopard 2s in service could begin training Ukrainian tank crews. . . German-made Leopard tanks were urgently needed by Ukraine because its stocks of ammunition for its Soviet-era tanks are running out.” [Soviet tanks use 125mm main guns, NATO tanks use 120mm.]

    3. I want to see the expression on his face when he learns he is the SECOND rather than the first person to run for US President while incarcerated in a federal prison for violation of the Espionage Act. [BTW, the food and health care in the federal prisons nowadays are far better than in 1920; he might lose a lot of blubber.]

  7. Family in Maine lost power during the storm. This article is actually about their town, and it mentions Summer Street, which is the next street to theirs. An elderly friend was without power for two days.

    Maine town expected to be without power for 3 days
