quote [ The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) released text of a final rule banning bump stock devices.

I don't personally want one but I don't like this.

The Steele Dossier: A Retrospective

quote [ The dossier is actually a series of reports—16 in all—that total 35 pages. Written in 2016, the dossier is a collection of raw intelligence. Steele neither evaluated nor synthesized the intelligence. He neither made nor rendered bottom-line judgments. The dossier is, quite simply and by design, raw reporting, not a finished intelligence product....

These materials buttress some of Steele’s reporting, both specifically and thematically. The dossier holds up well over time, and none of it, to our knowledge, has been disproven. ]

With the news out of the Southern District this week a lot of people act like this is coming to an end...its not, it is just getting started. There are several investigation on going and several more about to start...drip...drip...drip.
