news to me:

Seth Abramson writes today:

“If America knew Trump traded the continuation of his licensing deal at Trump Towers Istanbul for a retreat of U.S. forces from the Turkey-Syria border, which led to Turkey shelling our troops, us losing bases, and the rebirth of ISIS, support for a second impeachment would be 70%.”

5. Is this before or after the water skiing squirrel?

3. Well Seth certainly got my attention.

In other circumstances I would read this with a wait and see attitude. With Trump’s history not so much.

6. Heidi Przybyla reported on this (somewhat) back in October:

I should add: she didn't come right out and say what Seth has said. But it's . . . interesting.

9. well shit. I almost got it right ...

At the time, I speculated (probably enough to be annoying on DU) that Erdogan threatened to close the two towers if Dirty Donnie didn't abandon the troops. Should've known it wouldn't take that much pressure on the orange wuss.
