CIA reportedly captured Putins "specific instructions" to hack the 2016 election

When Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., CIA Director John Brennan and FBI Director James B. Comey all went to see Donald Trump together during the presidential transition, they told him conclusively that they had ďcaptured Putinís specific instructions on the operationĒ to hack the 2016 presidential election, according to a report in The Washington Post. The intel bosses were worried that he would explode but Trump remained calm during the carefully choreographed meeting. ďHe was affable, courteous, complimentary,Ē Clapper told the Post. Comey stayed behind afterward to tell the president-elect about the controversial Steele dossier, however, and that private meeting may have been responsible for the animosity that would eventually lead to Trump firing the director of the FBI.

This was too good (still comes with graphic warning) not to steal:

GOP, a doctor's opinion...

You can't win if you don't play.

The main takeaway is what we learned last month in Virginia: You canít win if you donít play. Former GOP senator Jeff Sessions, for now Donald Trumpís attorney general, ran unopposed in 2014. Let that sink in. Doug Jones had to be cajoled to step up, and in his victory speech he thanked his friends and advisers who demanded he run. Letís hope Democrats commit to a 50-state strategy once again. The party ought to take over the infrastructure of Jonesís winning campaign, and try to use it to bolster its support in the state House and Senate and the US Congress too. Congresswoman Terry Sewell, an indefatigable Jones backer on national television, needs some company in Washington.

Jon Stewart: Only The Rich Matter (To Republicans)

I abhor violence, BUT, I love this Alabama Victory toon:

Omarosa in 2016: "Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump

Omarosa in 2016: "Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump. It's everyone who's ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It's the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe."

A Nice Chart: Trump's Lies vs. Obama's

After we published a list of Trump's lies this summer, some of his supporters asked us to compare Trump to other presidents. We've done so and just published the results:

Pence's visit to Israel delayed

Pence's visit to Israel delayed
By Oren Liebermann and James Masters, CNN

(CNN)US Vice President Mike Pence has delayed his upcoming visit to Israel for several days, spokespeople for the Speaker of the Israeli Parliament and Foreign Ministry told CNN on Thursday.

The delay comes as Congress prepares to vote on a sweeping tax reform bill, and amid an ongoing outcry over President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the US embassy to the holy city.

Pence's vote could be crucial to Republican hopes of passing a major tax reform bill before the end of the year. With Republicans holding a slim 52-48 majority in the Senate -- and some key Republican senators still uncommitted -- Pence holds the tiebreaking vote in the event of an even split. Delaying the Jerusalem visit and keeping the vice president in Washington allows Pence to cast that vote if tax reform moves forward next week.

Pence's office has not confirmed the delay.
