Lock them up!

From Newsweek:

Updated | The top Democrat on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has asked the FBI to review the use of private email by Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to determine if either of them sent or stored classified or sensitive information.

In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday, Representative Elijah Cummings said, “I am writing to request that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conduct a security review to determine whether any classified or sensitive information was transmitted or stored on private email accounts or nongovernmental servers by senior White House officials—including but not limited to Senior Advisor to the President Jared Kushner, and Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump.” He also called for the FBI to “determine whether any of these nongovernmental systems or private devices were or are vulnerable to attack by cyber criminals.”

Tempest in a Teabag

From Eli Lehrer at Frum Forum:

[T]he current debt limit debate shows what the Tea Party movement (which I once basically supported) really values: being a jerk. Speaker Boehner has a close-to-perfect voting record on conservative issues, is not terribly warm in person […] and has proposed a good, tough spending cut plan. But he has also demonstrated a modicum of willingness to work with the president and appears to want to bring the debt ceiling crisis to a close.

Eric Cantor—who may well become speaker before the end of the year—does not disagree with Boehner on any major issue including the debt plan but, unlike Boehner, Cantor is basically a jerk who is willing to work against his own Speaker, the President, the financial interests that have traditionally supported his party and, indeed, just about everyone else so long as it keeps him in the media. I’m disgusted.
