Bonus episode: Inside the craziest meeting of the Trump presidency

Four conspiracy theorists marched into the Oval Office. It was early evening on Friday, Dec. 18 ó more than a month after the election had been declared for Joe Biden, and four days after the Electoral College met in every state to make it official.

"How the hell did Sidney get in the building?" White House senior adviser Eric Herschmann grumbled from the outer Oval Office as Sidney Powell and her entourage strutted by to visit the president.

President Trump's private schedule hadn't included appointments for Powell or the others: former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne, and a little-known former Trump administration official, Emily Newman. But they'd come to convince Trump that he had the power to take extreme measures to keep fighting.

As Powell and the others entered the Oval Office that evening, Herschmann - a wealthy business executive and former partner at Kasowitz Benson & Torres who'd been pulled out of quasi-retirement to advise Trump - quietly slipped in behind them.

Long read but well worth the time. If you want to know just how nutty Trump and his followers are, then here ya go.

2. This is the first part I've read.

They just mentioned that bizarre December 18 meeting on CNN. So here we are.

3. This is must read

The fact people like this were in the White House is so disturbing. The sanctity of our Democracy was under assault.

7. I just finished the NYT article I linked upthread.

It is an even longer read and it's even more "fun."
