    Those goons look so happy. Why do I feel jealousy and guilt at the same time? It must be because I have a conscience.

    If you're talking about the contractor killed that set off the Iran issue, it was a translator. Although that was my first thought too.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    The one in the foreground with the thumbs-up is smoking what looks like an $8 Dominican. wtf.... That's like going to a fancy Whiskey bar and ordering a Jack and Coke.

    They're all too small to be Ditkas, so they're likely all smoking on the cheap.

    I was suspicious of that, too, but I meant more like this:
    In 2007, contractors for a corporate predecessor to Constellis, Blackwater, were involved in a shooting that killed dozens of unarmed Iraqis in Baghdad. Four Blackwater contractors were found guilty of murder for the shootings, but three were later acquitted of the charges.

    I am suspicious of the persons Malcolm Nance referenced as Robert Hyde and the private contractors...

    Ah, those contractors.

    Wow. Rachel Maddow is going to show an interview she did with Lev Parnas tonight. And it looks like it might be the atomic bomb.

    Good stuff. As Senator Murphy observed "a jury would convict in 30 seconds". Trump's plausible deniability is shot if they let Lev testify at Trump's trial. Corroborated by none other than the only person who has offered first hand testimony, Gordy Sondland.
    This might cost some republicans in the fall. Might ... some ... no chance they're going to convict the orange dipshit no matter how obvious or severe his transgressions.
