6. Yes. When the Repub house intelligence committee shut down

its Russia investigation, "Nothing here, folks," our Democrats on the committee published a lengthy document detailing many lines of inquiry that weren't pursued, including the names of something like 70+ people and organizations the Repubs protected from scrutiny.

Come January 3, the most significant congressional investigation will shift from the Republican controlled senate to the Democratic house, and that "investigation" gets not just reopened but mostly begun. The feeling is that the Democratic committees will take care not to get in the way of the Mueller investigation.

This is all bad news for Putin, and isn't that a happy thought? It's likely the sanctions already passed by strong bipartisan majorities, though not imposed by Trump, are only the beginning as more comes out. He's been arrogantly overreaching hard, as many of his fellow oligarchs feared all along. Reportedly his support among the Russian people has dropped considerably also as wellbeing continues to decline. There's talk that the EU could rethink allowing increased natural gas dependence on Russia. Too soon to imagine he's going down, but our wheel is turning on him also.
