Trump White House quietly cancels NASA research verifying greenhouse gas cuts | Science | AAAS
You can't manage what you don't measure. The adage is especially relevant for climate-warming greenhouse gases, which are crucial to manage—and challenging to measure. In recent years, though, satellite and aircraft instruments have begun monitoring carbon dioxide and methane remotely, and NASA's Carbon Monitoring System (CMS), a $10-million-a-year research line, has helped stitch together observations of sources and sinks into high-resolution models of the planet's flows of carbon. Now, President Donald Trump's administration has quietly killed the CMS, Science has learned.

Ryan-linked group raised $24.6M from anonymous donor - POLITICO
American Action Network, the nonprofit group closely aligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan, raised a record $41.9 million amid the GOP push to repeal Obamacare and restructure the tax code — more than half of which came from one donor, according to a tax filing obtained by POLITICO.

The money raised includes $24.6 million from a single anonymous donor, according to AAN’s 2017 tax return, which covers July 2016 to June 2017 and was filed this week. As a “social welfare” group organized under section 501(c)(4) of the tax code, AAN can raise money in unlimited amounts, but it is not required to disclose its donors, unlike a super PAC.

Trump Only Has One Scandal - The Atlantic
The preceding wall of text may appear to some as an abridged list of the Trump administration’s scandals, but this is an illusion created by the perception that these are all separate affairs. Viewed as such, the various Trump scandals can seem multifarious and overpowering, and difficult to fathom.

There are not many Trump scandals. There is one Trump scandal. Singular: the corruption of the American government by the president and his associates, who are using their official power for personal and financial gain rather than for the welfare of the American people, and their attempts to shield that corruption from political consequences, public scrutiny, or legal accountability.

It Was a Favor Factory: Deep State Forced to Turn Thousands of Clinton-Era State Department Emails to/about the Clinton Foundation, Debunking Supposed Firewall | American Center for Law and Justice
Already in this case, we have found shocking evidence of the Clinton State Department’s Clinton Foundation favor factory. As you might recall, we first issued this FOIA request after key emails were discovered that showed special treatment and favors had been given to certain unidentified donors or supporters of the Clinton Foundation. Our FOIA request took the next step to find out what happened next and to identify who the favors were granted to.
Following the ACLJ’s filing of a lawsuit against the then-Obama State Department to force it to turn over responsive documents, and just hours before President Obama left office, the State Department produced the first batch of documents responsive to our request which revealed the previously unknown identity of the recipient of one such “favor” – Brock Johnson. Johnson was a former Obama campaign operative who was then promptly hired by Secretary Clinton as “a favor” to the Clinton Foundation.
As we previously explained:

Brock Johnson later tipped off Cheryl Mills about a “Significant FOIA” request in 2012 that requested information about “the number of email accounts of, or associated with, Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the extent to which those email accounts are identifiable as those of or associated with Secretary Clinton.” The Inspector General found that the State Department then falsely stated that there were “no records responsive to your request,” when in fact numerous officials knew about Secretary Clinton’s private email address. To be clear, Johnson tipped off Cheryl Mills about the FOIA request that would have first publicly uncovered Secretary Clinton’s email scandal; instead the State Department covered it up for months longer. And Johnson obtained his job as a “favor” to the Clinton Foundation.

If that is the level of collusion and corruption uncovered in just the first handful of documents turned over the ACLJ, imagine what the voluminous productions still to come will unearth.

Comey Tweeted About His Righteous FBI Leadership; Then a Current FBI Agent Stood Up & Absolutely Wrecked Him: "You & the FBI Ruined Our Lives" – True PunditTrue Pundit
“It’s the equivalent of being linked to terrorism inside the FBI,” one insider said. “Your career is frozen when you are designated an insider threat. McCabe and Stzok used this to silence many agents and Kerrick was behind this in New Haven. She dialed up McCabe to try and ruin Montoya, there is not doubt.”
