The extraordinary bias of the judge in the Manafort trial - The Washington Post
Ellis also questioned the relevance of Manafort's work as a political consultant for Russian-backed politicians in Ukraine, for which he was paid tens of millions of dollars from 2010 to 2014. But if Manafort didn't disclose some payments because he was not registered in the United States as a foreign agent, it would provide a motive to hide the amounts from the U.S. government — just what the trial was about.

Trump Revokes Ex-CIA Director John Brennan’s Security Clearance
“In an interview Wednesday, Mr. Trump cited Mr. Brennan as among those he held responsible for the investigation, which also is looking into whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Mr. Trump has denied collusion, and Russia has denied interfering. Mr. Brennan was director of the Central Intelligence Agency in the Democratic administration of former President Obama and one of those who presented evidence to Mr. Trump shortly before his inauguration that Russia had interfered in the 2016 election. ‘I call it the rigged witch hunt, [it] is a sham,’ Mr. Trump said in an interview. ‘And these people led it!’ He added: ‘So I think it’s something that had to be done.’”

The scale of the Catholic Church’s criminality still shocks
"THE CATHOLIC CHURCH’S decades-long practice of enabling and systematically covering up the rape and molestation of children by priests is by now sickeningly familiar. Yet the scale of abuse; the breadth and depth of trauma inflicted by predators wearing Roman collars; and the coldbloodedness of senior church figures zealous in their resolve to protect the church but indifferent to the suffering of minors, retain their power to shock the conscience. ...
The report names some 300 accused predator priests, who allegedly abused at least 1,000 victims. The jurors noted they stuck to cases that were documented and provable; they said the real number, both of priests and victims, is likely much higher. ...
The conspiracy — as in Boston and practically every major city in the United States and many overseas — involved bishops, archbishops and even cardinals. Among those named in the report is Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl, archbishop of Washington who was bishop of Pittsburgh for 18 years, until 2006. Mr. Wuerl vowed zero tolerance for predator priests following the Boston Globe’s revelations, in 2002, of widespread abuse and coverups. Yet the Pennsylvania report documents several cases in which Mr. Wuerl seems more interested in protecting than in fully exposing clergymen who had molested children.
Even as apologists for the Vatican and the clergy continue peddling the myth that the Catholic Church’s pedophile scandals simply reflect society’s problems, the weight of evidence is overwhelming proof to the contrary. Thousands of American priests weaponized faith, as Mr. Shapiro said, taking advantage of their status and access to children to prey on them. They left uncountable thousands of victims in their wake."
