Good News for John Tester in Montana.

The Montana supreme court has rejected four republican initiatives that would essentially suppress the vote in Montana, including the Native aboriginal votes. It is good news for John Tester in his senate race. I think he will keep his seat. He also discusses the Florida abortion law that will now help dems and could be the demise of Rick Scott (fingers crossed).

Jason Leopold uncovers messages from Trumpist FBI agents against the search of Mar-a-Lago and

the investigation of Trump along with sympathies of 1/6 insurrectionists. It shows what we have all known for awhile but never had the proof. Under a FOIA request Leopold has found various emails etc that show outright hostility to the investigation of Trump.

~snip~

Rumors have long swirled that FBI agents at various field offices had been sympathetic to Trump even as the bureau launched investigations into his campaign and his business dealings. The claims were always attributed to anonymous sources. An email I obtained last year after a separate FOIA lawsuit related to the Jan. 6 Capital riots backs up those assertions.

“There’s no good way to say it,” read the email to deputy director Abbate. “So I’ll just be direct: from my first-hand and second-hand information from conversations since January 6th there is, at best, a sizable percentage of the employee population that felt sympathetic to the group that stormed the Capitol and said it was no different than the BLM protests of last summer," the person wrote a week after the riots.


Very interesting article

Russia has a Spate of Mock News sites online to look like local news sites and spread disinformation

Article by the New York Times:

~Into the depleted field of journalism in America, a handful of websites have appeared in recent weeks with names suggesting a focus on news close to home: D.C. Weekly, the New York News Daily, the Chicago Chronicle and a newer sister publication, the Miami Chronicle.
In fact, they are not local news organizations at all. They are Russian creations, researchers and government officials say, meant to mimic actual news organizations to push Kremlin propaganda by interspersing it among an at-times odd mix of stories about crime, politics and culture.~
.

Be careful what you are reading and quoting in this day and age.

Abbe Lowell is hitting back at Weiss with his recent arrest of Smirnov in the Hunter Biden case

Abbe Lowell has filed his reply motion to compel discovery and he has used not only Weiss's stupid picture of sawdust on a table saw as coke but also their claim that Hunter Biden took and sent the picture (he did neither).

It is one of many motions we are expecting today but he does hammer them on both the arrest and the claims made about the picture.

Here is the filing

I was always embarrassed

receiving hearts, especially not knowing who was so kind and generous. I was a lurker here for a long time before ever commenting. As a Canadian, I felt my comments would not be well received (and there have been a few that did not receive them well) but after Trump won the election, I felt it was as much our responsibility (Canadians) as Americans to do what we could within our power to ensure truth is forefront to take him down. Since we are not able to donate to candidates, being engaged was all we had. I expected to back away from reading about US politics once he was out of office, but alas the drama and threat continued. So thank you to those who have accepted me and to those who gave me hearts this year and others, it has finally convinced me while I am here I have to donate where I am able to keep the fight going so I finally became a star member. I hope to one day soon be able to put the politics behind but I doubt I will disengage with this site as it is incredibly informative on many subjects.

Thanks for the hearts and making me realize I really need to support this site in other ways.

I quite often get flashes of the blue box for jury duty but it only flashes

and then is gone, then will flash again as I enter another commentary. This time I came to DU Community help to ask why this is happening and the blue box showed up and stayed so I completed it. Is this is what is supposed to happen, if the blue box flashes we are to come to community help to participate? Seems a very awkward way to conduct jury requests.
