"The ODNI does not dispute the CIA's finds"

The only thing in dispute, apparently, is Russia's motivation.

And if this were a criminal case, there's more than enough circumstantial evidence to prove intent.

Did Putin personally autograph Russia's actions? Send a thank you note to Trump? Of course not.

Did Russia hack both the RNC and the DNC, yet only release the DNC emails? Yes. Even the FBI (apparently) believes that, as do all the other US intelligence companies, as well as American private security companies.

Do Trump and Company have close personal and financial ties to the Russian government going back decades? Yes.

Did Trump immediately begin nominating entirely pro-Russian cabinet members? Yes.

Have Trump and his people defended Russia -- even threatened to break up NATO -- at every step of the way? Yes.

For any law enforcement agency or prosecutor in the world, this case wouldn't even be close. The only true unknown is the extent of TrumpCo's involvement.

7 bombs across Thailand in coordinated attack


I'm in Phuket at the moment a little nervous. Usually I wouldn't let these things alter my behavior -- bombings aren't entirely uncommon in Thailand -- but we're definitely canceling our plans to go see the big kickboxing match tonight.

People I've talked to -- just regular Thai folks -- are split between believing it was Muslim political violence or "regular" political violence. No one has taken credit yet, and there is ample reason to suspect either group. Most people just think whoever did it were a bunch of assholes. Whoever it was was coordinated as hell, because they hit multiple cities in Souhern Thailand with bombs believed to have been on timers. The part that Time leaves out is that there were three fake bombs found yesterday in Patong, a super-touristy area.

But informing them wasn't the issue decided

It's just that he has to do them all individually. The legislature's not involved in any meaningful way, but thanks for the info. I guess it's in there to keep governors accountable.

McAuliffe btw, already said he'd sign all 206000 of them.
