    Been watching it for bit now. They seem to be more interested in finding the leakers to put them in jail than the information which was leaked. Are they not concerned about all this Russia stuff? o_O

    I watched it all. Widely stated that it felt like two hearings.
    The "they" focused on the leakers were all Republicans. The Dems focused on gathering information related to Russia investigation.

    Ah, that makes more sense. I didn't watch the whole thing. By the time I woke up it'd already been on for a while. It also makes sense why things were so split up now between people's questioning. Thank you for the clarity! :)

    Confession: Josh and I have started rewatching The West Wing to refresh ourselves on what a presidential administration run by television is supposed to look like.

    I guess there's no point in hiding it anymore when your supporters don't believe anything the news says and your detractors can't really hate you more than they already do.

    The AP story about Manafort for this morning looks like it could blow up in new and interesting ways. Of course, to paraphrase a brilliant tweet I saw yesterday, "The White House is on fire, Trump's holding a book of matches, and the Republicans are asking who called the fire department," so...

    Tillerson skipping a NATO foreign ministers meeting is them not hiding the entire administration's entanglement with and obligations to the Russian government anymore? o_O

    Tillerson prioritizing relations with Russia at the risk of further offending our closest allies while the administration is already in the middle of a scandal about inappropriate ties to Russia very much says that they don't care how it looks anymore, yes.

    lmao what the hell

    Edit: Wait, this tweet looks slightly misleading after reading the full article. Still bad but maybe not as bad as the tweet makes it sound. idk I should probably just wait to see what the bill they actually vote on looks like.

    Tomorrow's gonna be fun!
