Lefty CounterPunch Attacks Clinton’s “Book”: Hillary Happened

We’ve gotten glimpses of reality lately from the Left. It’s been encouraging. It seems that many lefties are just sick to death of Hillary and her excuses. Finally (some of) the lefties too seem to see the self pity, the Russia mantras, and the “misogyny” calls as just ridiculous.

Excellent job The Hill.

Russian Lawyer At Center Of Trump Jr Scandal Speaks: “I Have No Government Ties”

So the Trump Jr. email story came out and I’m looking for meat. Please feel free to post it if you have some. But it looks to be yet more conjecture and innuendo. As always – we could be wrong.

And some shady meetings happened between some not so shadowy figures too.
