Day 52: Further Analysis

Another relatively quiet Sunday.
  • What the heck is going on with Flynn in the administration? Rachel Maddow points out how the entire timeline doesn't add up, and how it appears that the administration is covering for something.
  • More details about the abrupt firing of the US Attorney Generals, in particular, the one who had jurisdiction over Trump Tower (who had previously been explicitly invited to stay on). You may recall that a few days ago, ethics groups urged him to investigate possible violations of the emoluments clause.
  • Given the propensity of drone strikes to kill civilians, Obama had a series of regulations regarding constraints on how counterterrorism attacks were handled. Trump is seeking to undo them. Given that America's drone program has been one of the biggest recruiting tools for terrorism, this seems like folly at best.
