Billionaire Breitbart Funder Robert Mercer Fleeing Politics?

The timing on this is weird. Robert Mercer cutting ties with Breitbart, Milo, and his own company? Did he get a letter from Mueller?

This is a pretty remarkable statement (in a short letter to shareholders) from billionaire Robert Mercer:

As Stephanie Ruhle points out in the clip above, Mercer is involved in a billion dollar lawsuit with the IRS.

His company Cambridge Analytica is up to their waists in Russia email hacking innuendo, and it's likely he and surrogates will be called to testify in the Trump Russia investigation.

I don't buy the "over several weeks" baloney about severing ties with Milo, either. Everybody knows what Milo is, and when you sever ties you do it in a day, not over several weeks.

And selling his interest in Breitbart News to Rebekah -- she's as right wing loony billionaire as they come anyway.

AND as Karoli points out in this tweet, she's also as complicit as they come:

But wait, there's more. (There's always more.)
