Mike's Blog Round Up
July 25, 2016

Driving our day: Monday is the first night of the Democratic National Convention, which means that the timing of the DNC email leaks story couldn't be worse. We'll begin in Russia and work our way to Florida:

Zander Versus The Stupid tries Putin together the pieces to show that Trump really is closely aligned with the Russians.

Hackwhackers looks at the Trump-Kremlin Connection and then takes a look at the fall-out at the DNC.

The Republic of Gilead fact-checks Ivanka.

Bonus Track: Hysterical Raisins gives us the comic book we've been waiting for.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
