Update-Mark Warner was just on Rachel Maddow and looked like the cat who had swallowed the canary

He appeared to be so happy he was about to burst into laughter for most of the segment.

I don't know if he and Rachel were swapping funny stories off camera or if Warner knows something is coming.

He looked like he was about to bust up laughing when they were talking about Manafort's lawyers "accidentally" telling the world that Manafort was sending campaign polling data to the Russians.

He also questioned the sanctions relief for the Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska at this time, especially since Manafort was sending information to a Russian contact who was passing it on to Deripaska.

I was glad to see my senior Senator in such good spirits, but if anyone knows what's up, I would like to know as well.

Update 12:40 a.m. Saturday morning:

Pure speculation, but I see (possibly) why my senior Senator was so elated last night on Rachael Maddow.

Mark Warner is on the Senate Intelligence Committee and has access to classified information. He is the ranking Democrat on that committee and perhaps Mueller’s best “friend” in the Senate. I think he already knew about the counterintelligence operation Thursday night, maybe from the same person(s) who leaked the story to the NYT.

The thought of Trump finally getting nailed makes me giddy. Perhaps it had the same effect on the Senator.

3. Yes we do have 2 great Senators!

And as of January 3 we have a great rep in VA07! I've been in VA for 20 years and this is the first time I've actually had a representative in Congress.

8. I'm in the 5th - we're screwed unless we're redistricted, and even then,

it'll probably just set Charlottesville free (they deserve it).

Our daughter and son-in-law are in the 10th - they're thrilled

11. Also a VA-05 resident

Because the district is so much gerrymandered, no Democrat can compete fairly.

But, there is a fight;

2. For those who won't see the tape, Rachel laid out the Dem agenda for the

next week. Aggressive Presidential 'executive privilege' claims have not worked well in the past, DOJ nominee 'blanket pardon Barr' and his role in the H. Bush pardon scandal, Senator Warner's upcoming agenda.

4. I've been waiting for the connection between Barr and the H.W. Bush cover ups.

5. Warner always looks like that

Don't forget he voted for a woman who thinks torture and destruction of evidence involved in an investigation is OK to run the CIA.

I'll vote for him against a repuke but I'll be watching for a primary, too.

6. Really? I've never seen him appear as anything but a dour sourpuss ...

I've not seen him many times, but 'in NO WAY jovial' would definitely be a way I'd describe him in the handful of times I've seen him speak or in interviews.

IOW him being jovial PROBABLY 'means something' ... and it's probably good for Democrats.

7. When I've seen him before he looked quite serious

I took his demeanor to mean something good for Democrats as well.

His role on the Senate Intelligence Committee gives him access to a lot of information, some of it classified. I suspect that there is something big coming down the pike.

Props to him for trying to right this maga-wrong.

10. I thought so, too.

Hard work to rid the country of a traitor president, I guess.

12. Maybe he had an adult beverage or two before he got there

Or in the green room before the interview. Who knows?



I'd like to see the video. Thanks for the post, YessirAtsaFact.
