Mike's Blog Round Up
October 28, 2017

In this space yesterday, I linked to a story suggesting that Robert Mueller might be preparing to drop a bomb before Thanksgiving. The impending first charges in his investigation, reported by CNN late yesterday, may not be that bomb, but who knows where all this leads?

Is it any wonder the Orange Moron is aggressively pushing his "no collusion" BS and the Trumpian right-wing media machine is suddenly spewing all those old lies about Hillary, all while Republicans are trying to hobble Mueller's investigation?

Alicublog: White supremacy is no fake liberal outrage.

Emptywheel: There are links between voter data and collusion.

The Moderate Voice: The UN reports horrific violations of LGBT rights.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here through the weekend.

Send requests and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
