Draining Slowly

"Surprising!" said no one who has been paying attention.

Jared Kushner has been identified as the senior White House official whose security clearance was denied by career officials.
Newbold told the House Oversight Committee that Kushner’s background investigation raised concerns about foreign influence, outside business interests and personal conduct, according to a document released by the committee.

The specific issues flagged in his background check remain unknown. But The Washington Post reported last year that foreign officials had privately discussed ways to try to manipulate Kushner by taking advantage of his complex business arrangements, financial difficulties and lack of foreign policy experience.

Among the nations that discussed ways to influence Kushner were the United Arab Emirates, China, Israel and Mexico, current and former officials said.


Also, this morning a second publication confirms what the NYT published last night. From WaPo:
Absent that, Barr told lawmakers that he concluded the evidence was not sufficient to prove that the president obstructed justice.

But members of Mueller’s team have complained to close associates that the evidence they gathered on obstruction was alarming and significant. (snip)

Some members of the office were particularly disappointed that Barr did not release summary information the special counsel team had prepared, according to two people familiar with their reactions.

“There was immediate displeasure from the team when they saw how the attorney general had characterized their work instead,” according one U.S. official briefed on the matter.

Summaries were prepared for different sections of the report, with a view that they could made public, the official said.


This is what happens when there is oversight. We will see the report and we will learn what happened. Now that we have the house, we can actually drain the swamp in the White House.

Happy Thursday!

and

Raine

Morning

Just watched The Post over the weekend, now waiting for someone to drop the Report off at the WashPo's doorstep.

Good morning

Hooray for Fumblitis and CRS

Bought milk last night and this morning the Mrs asks where it is. Damned if I know. Though I left it in the car....nope...it ended up in the computer room with the rest of my stuff....oh well.

Just dropped my iPad in its case on the corner. Busted one of the guides in the case, but that could have easily been the iPad being busted...so it gave its life for my iPad. The case is 3 years old and the keyboard was working like a champ, I'll get another one. But WHY TODAY? If it broke yesterday, I could have ordered a new one and had it by today.

Sorry didn't get back to you sooner Raine, but yes the Mrs birthday is on Saturday. Since I'm giving her a camera, I didn't want to wait until Saturday to give it to her. She's got a nice Nikon SLR with lenses, but it's too bulky to carry around all day and I think the point & shoot she's getting has more pixels.

It was really good Put some things in perspective for things going on today, and made me yearn for elected officials who work for their constituents and not their own pockets.

Plus, I'd always thought of Katherine Graham as a power house from the start but now I see she grew into that later in life.

I'm hoping I can hold off giving it to her until tomorrow night.

I love the feminist aspect of that movie. It's easy to forget how hard it was (and still is) for women with positions of power in a patriarchal workplace. That movie was a perfect example.

Right, almost started crying at the end when she was walking down he steps of the Supreme Court with all the young women looking up to her. Then she stopped for a second like she realized that the moment was not just about the release of the Pentagon Papers.

The Mrs present has arrived.

Oh, looks like Donnie's in Twitter meltdown mode again railing about the Fake New York Times
