    There's some very interesting tidbits in this NYT article about Nielsen's resignation.

    Also, the replacement might apparently not be who Trump wants it to be?

    The US names the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist group.

    On the surface, this seems fairly provocative (as per the generally hawkish stance on Iran that the administration has had), but if someone with more knowledge of this could chime in, much appreciated.

    The Post describes the problem fairly succinctly. IRGC and Iran in general have been known to retaliate in the past, and provoking them unnecessarily is just asking for trouble.

    The Mueller Report will be released (redacted, but apparently coded to indicate the type of redactions) fairly soon. From The Guardian's liveblog:

    That's a good thing because I'm honestly curious about how bad the evidence must be for mueller's office to say that Trump was definitely not wrong but for Barr thinking he wouldn't be able to prosecute the case.

    You'll have to clarify this, because that statement makes very little sense.

    Revisiting the Mueller report, should we give Barr the benefit of the doubt? Past experience tells us no:

    Over/Under on how many times the word 'Redacted' appears?

    Once. It just stretches over all 400 pages.

    Average of 3x per page or so (that is, three sections, not three words), if you want a really unfounded guess.

    Here's your key for the redactions, btw.

    YMMV on if it's accurate.

    Deutsche Bank was subpoenad today.

    Meanwhile, in the WH, they're seemingly heading for the bomb shelters ahead of the Mueller report. But this isn't about Trump and his direct confidantes; it's about the other officials.

    I suppose that it's going to depend on how much of it is actually traceable. (See also the points Gio raised about Klobuchar's excesses in US2020.) Trump does strike me - though I will fully admit to not seeing him in the best of lights - as someone who would definitely seek to get rid of people he perceives as traitors for having told just the wrong thing to Mueller and company.

    Which, in turn, casts just more doubt on the whole 'full exoneration' schtick that's been trumpeted out for a few weeks; as if it needed more still.

    I'm still curious if we're going to see an attempt to plaster over the news. (And, I admit, I'm also morbidly curious to see what certain political heads make of it.)

    If he stays true to form, he'll probably try to do something outrageous that upstages the release on Thursday.

    Which is precisely why Trump never testified himself, and why there has been such a point in the DoJ that unless the President has committed an impeachable offence, they cannot be indicted.

    We all know Trump is a crooked motherfucker. Just look at that absolute scam that was Trump U, the multiple lawsuits, blah fucking blah.

    In all likelihood, the final conclusion is probably going to be something much closer to "Almost certainly guilty, but we can't prove it to the degree needed for impeachment to be viable" than any sort of finding that Trump is innocent.

    Ahh man, quite a bit of the Wikileaks section is redacted for now. Pity, that ought to be a juicy one.

    This is going to take a long time to parse through. I'm loathe to just parrot stuff off of twitter, but Kyle Griffin is doing a pretty good job so far pulling out pretty big ticket stuff on it, if you're looking for a good source.
