Sunday Morning News Dump

From Slate:

It’s hard to keep track of things when you’re making them up as you go. The new line from the Trump administration is a breezy “what investigation?” flick of the wrist to bat away questions about the reported expansion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe to include not just Russian election meddling and Trump’s ties to any such effort, but also possible obstruction of justice by the president. On Sunday, the president trotted out his lawyer, Jay Sekulow, to do the Sunday morning talk shows.

On Meet the Press, Sekulow stressed that the president isn’t even under investigation.

What a load!

From Vox:

No matter what President Donald Trump seems to do — or how angry he seems to get — the Russia investigation just won’t go away. That became even more apparent over the past 24 hours […].

That’s because the Washington Post reported Wednesday night that special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of all-stars are expanding their Russia probe and now directly investigating whether Trump was trying to obstruct justice when he fired former FBI Director James Comey.

In addition, the New York Times reported yesterday that the investigation is looking into whether Trump associates laundered money they’d received from Russia, presumably as part of a payoff for colluding with Moscow during the campaign.

Sessions had better protect hims-elf!

From abcNEWS:

As the White House braces for former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony Thursday, sources tell ABC News the relationship between President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions has become so tense that Sessions at one point recently even suggested he could resign.

Uhoh Ernie Beauregard!

Raise the Error Alert!

From THINK PROGRESS:

Ridge’s Groveling Tour: I Never Meant To Accuse The Bush Administration Of Politicizing Homeland Security

A few weeks ago, former Bush Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge was thrust back into the public spotlight with news of his upcoming book, which is out today. Of particular interest was Ridge’s revelation that officials may have pushed him to raise the security alert level for political reasons on eve of Bush’s re-election. An excerpt from the book:

A vigorous, some might say dramatic, discussion ensured. Ashcroft strongly urged an increase in the threat level and was supported by Rumsfeld. There was absolutely no support for that position within our department. None. I wondered, “Is this about security or politics?” Post-election analysis demonstrated a significant increase in the president’s approval rating in the days after the raising of the threat level. … I consider the episode to be not only a dramatic moment in Washington’s recent history, but another illustration of the intersection of politics, fear, credibility and security.

Sssshhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dan Froomkin at the Washington Post:

An apparent lie by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales could be easily cleared up, White House spokesman Tony Snow says — but doing so would require discussing matters that must remain classified in order to protect national security.

Mueller? Mueller?

Former Chimpy’s White House Chief of Staff Andrew the prick Card and then-White House counsel Alberto the weasel Gonzales tried to force then-Attorney General John I never thought I would actually miss him Ashcroft, who was ailing and in Intensive Care, to agree to continue an illegal wiretapping policy. Deputy (and acting) AG James Comey was standing by, as were FBI agents placed in the hospital room under orders from FBI Director Robert Mueller. Later on, Comey, Ashcroft, and Mueller threatened to resign.
I don’t think I want to be around when…..
