Things seem to be moving quickly in TrumpWorld, which seems like a quite a statement given the usual pace. It was no sooner than AG Sessions had fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe over a "lack of candor" (and if there is one thing old Jeff Sessions will not stand for, it is a lack of candor...right?) than President Trump was lighting up Twitter with a self-serving and as usual, mostly untrue rant because firing McCabe wasn't quite the job he wanted to accomplish. It was noted that Trump finally mentioned the Mueller investigation, something he had very likely not done because his lawyers would have counseled him not to.
And then it just seemed like everything was coming up Cambridge Analytica. First, FaceBook suspended CA, but suddenly the story opened up to connect dots to working with Russian organizations, reaching out to Corey Lewandowski (Trump's first campaign manager), and then, explosively, a Channel 4 investigation revealed a Cambridge Analytica exec admitting to using spies, bribes and even sexual entrapment to compromise people into, um, changing their behavior due to the, err, data that has been gathered on them.
Wild, right? Anyhow, we all know Steve Bannon and Mike Flynn are connected to Campaign Analytica, but gosh! No reason to suspect there's anything shady about how the company performed for the entirely aboveboard Trump Campaign, right?
At some point, it really becomes difficult to look at the big picture and presume it only holds together in a rather circumstantial way.
In somewhat related news, Mike Flynn was recently seen campaigning for Republican Omar Navarro against Rep. Maxine Waters, whose intellect Trump recently denigrated for some reason, and Steve Bannon was in Europe being fascinated by fascism and encouraging the Far-Right. So those guys are still....around.
