Oil leak worse than rig owner says

WASHINGTON — A new federal study has found that an oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico that began 14 years ago has been releasing as much as 4,500 gallons a day, not three or four gallons a day as the rig owner has claimed.

The leak, about 12 miles off the Louisiana coast, began in 2004 when a Taylor Energy Company oil platform sank during Hurricane Ivan and a bundle of undersea pipes ruptured. Oil and gas have been seeping from the site ever since.

Anyone following the subpoena hearing today on Twitter?

Go on Twitter and search for "Judge Mehta".

Trump's lawyers are throwing everything they can at the judge in order to get the judge to rule in Trump's favor.

One example:

Holy crap. Trump's lawyers said Trump couldn't be investigated for "corrupt behavior" while in office because "that would be law enforcement."


This is not a joke: Super Trump liquid detergent


Super Trump is a concentrated, high-alkaline, heavy duty liquid detergent for machine warewashing. It can also be used for Bar Glass Washing, Automatic Duct Cleaning Systems and can be automatically dispensed directly from the shipping container. The concentrated, high-alkaline formula strips away heavy grease, protein and starch food soils that ordinary detergents can miss and is effective in light, medium and heavy soil conditions. It also contains special water conditioning agents to help reduce spotting and streaking.

Comment: I'll bet it's safe and effective to use on U.S. currency as well.

NBC News: Iran OK'd attacks on American military

WASHINGTON — The U.S. decision to surge additional military forces into the Middle East was based in part on intelligence that the Iranian regime has told some of its proxy forces and surrogates that they can now go after American military personnel and assets in the region, according to three U.S. officials familiar with the intelligence.


The House is getting closer to the truth on Trump.

Time to wag the dog.

Barr's stunt has backfired


Barr and Whitaker were brought in to shut down the Mueller investigation. And, they did.

Jeff Sessions was the Attorney General during the Mueller investigation up until his last day on the job, though he recused himself from the Mueller investigation.

Because of Sessions' recusal, Mueller reported to Rod Rosenstein until Trump appointed Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker in November 2018.

Up until November 2018, Mueller had indicted 36 individuals. Only one more individual was indicted after Whitaker becoming Acting Attorney General - Roger Stone.

Roger Stone was the connection to WikiLeaks.

That brings us to two questions posed by Fortune magazine (http://fortune.com/2019/03/26/william-barr-robert-mueller-report-trump-russia-investigation/):

13. What did Mueller conclude about longtime Trump ally Roger Stone’s interactions regarding WikiLeaks?
Starting in June 2016, anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks began publishing Democratic emails that Mueller has said were stolen by Russian hackers. Stone told Trump campaign officials that he had information about WikiLeaks releasing documents that would be damaging to Clinton, according to prosecutors. Trump campaign officials allegedly pressed Stone to find out when more dumps of Clinton material would be coming. And Stone used Twitter to contact Guccifer 2.0, which Mueller said was an alias for the Russian intelligence officers who stole the emails.

There was speculation that Stone could have been a conduit to WikiLeaks—but no direct connection has been established. (Stone has pleaded not guilty to charges he lied to congressional investigators about the matter and engaged in witness tampering.)

14. What happened to the draft charges against Jerome Corsi, the political gadfly who allegedly acted as an intermediary between Stone and WikiLeaks?
Mueller’s team was said to have offered Corsi a deal in which he would have pleaded guilty to perjury over statements he made about his interactions with WikiLeaks. He refused, gave copies of the draft agreement to the news media and ridiculed Mueller’s investigation in interviews. Because Corsi wasn’t charged, details about the investigation of him may remain under wraps.

It's my contention, though I cannot prove it, that it appears Mueller was closing in on WikiLeaks, and that WikiLeaks may be the bridge to Trump's collusion with the Russians.

It's my theory that Jeff Sessions was ordered to resign so that Whitaker and Barr could be brought in to shut down the Mueller investigation.
