Legal experts say Mueller team likely gained access to NRA tax filings: report

Why isn’t this bigger news? Never again can the NRA depicts themselves as a patriotic organization:

Legal experts say it’s likely special counsel Robert Mueller secretly gained access to the National Rifle Association’s tax returns as part of the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, according to a McClatchy report.

Mueller’s team is reportedly looking into NRA donors with links to Russia and investigating whether some donors used the organization to illegally funnel foreign money to President Trump’s campaign.

The NRA spent $30 million backing Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

ICE whistleblower interview with CBS interrupted by surprise visit from government agents

High court OKs Trump’s travel ban, rejects Muslim bias claim

The court has gone MAGA as well:

A sharply divided Supreme Court upheld President Donald Trump’s ban on travel from several mostly Muslim countries Tuesday, the conservative majority taking his side in a major ruling supporting his presidential power. A dissenting liberal justice said the court was making a historic mistake by refusing to recognize the ban discriminates against Muslims.

The 5-4 decision was a big victory for Trump in the court’s first substantive ruling on one of his administration’s policies. It also was the latest demonstration of a newly invigorated conservative majority and a bitter defeat for the court’s liberals.

Phoenix cop beats blind man in bathroom — but blind man gets charged with aggravated assault

This is what law enforcement has become in America. It is the worst kind of thuggish behavior. Not the actions of those who entrusted to serve and protect. This is the kind of brutality we see in so-called third world countries and dictatorships:

Marco Zepeda, a blind man was using the bathroom when he was attacked by a police officer. He just came out of nowhere,” Zepeda said. Zepeda said he was using his fingers to look around for urinal when the police officer shoved him back. “He grabbed and he screamed at me ‘I told you I was the police.’ But he never did it. I swear to God he never did it,” Zepeda said.

‘I’m riding the Trump wave. He’s Christopher Columbus,’ says Republican Nevada pimp running for office

How appropriate is this. He’s Trump’s twin:

Hof, the 71-year-old star of HBO’s “Cathouse” series and Republican nominee for Nevada’s 36th District in the State Assembly, is fashioning himself as the “Trump from Pahrump.” He’s a brash candidate who courts the kind of controversy and attention other politicians seek to avoid. And he says his career in politics is all possible because of Donald Trump.
