Hello Widdershins,

January is finally over. I’m really not happy with the new calendar where January is 249 days long. The good news is February is much shorter. According to the new Trump Calendar February will only run 188 days.

And what a January it has been! The last day of the month went out with a kaboom, just

Devin Nunes

to make sure we appreciated it. Representative Devin Nunes is … what the hell is he doing? Does anybody know? He recused himself from the Trump/Russian investigation many months ago after his bizarre behavior of running around Washington DC in the middle of the night, jumping into random cars and disappearing for hours, only to reemerge in front of the White House telling the media he discovered something shocking which he was about to the White House to tell them about. But it’s top secret. We then found out his late night top secret mission was at the White House, so he went to the White House in the middle of the night via secret cars, learned something from the White House and the next day went to the White House to inform the White House that he learned something top secret. And so he recused himself. But LOL, not really. He’s been not just getting access to top secret materials in the Trump/Russia House investigation – which he is not supposed to receive because he recused – but he has been organizing a House GOP revolt against the FBI and the Justice Department using those top secret documents he’s not supposed to have access to. Now there’s a memo which everyone is freaking out over. When Nunes was asked if he has been coordinating the writing and releasing of the memo with the White House he said he wasn’t sure. Errrrrrr. Then Adam Schiff discovers that Nunes made alterations to the memo without telling anyone. Oh and then Schiff found out that in secret Nunes and House GOP have started an investigation into the FBI. So that’s happening and what in the world is happening? The consensus among twitter scholars (no, some of them are actual lawyers, not just twayers) is that Nunes is digging a gargantuan hole for himself and is so blatantly obstructing justice that he will go to prison. This, of course, assumes that Republicans believe in the rule of law and it is becoming increasingly clear that they do not. Trump was right about one thing: he could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Ave and not only would he not lose any voters, the NY Times would accuse Hillary Clinton of shooting someone on 5th Ave.

Though it all Paul Ryan says he has full confidence in Devin Nunes. Which makes Paul time-paulryan-5-gthmb.jpgRyan not just complicit in enabling Trump, it makes him an active participant in an attempt to discredit the chief law enforcement agency of the US. Nunes is a nobody, but that is an astounding legacy for the Speaker of the House. And as Jonathan Chait reminds us, it is Paul Ryan who blocked the release of Trump’s tax returns. And nobody in the media really asks him about that.

That may be because the media is busy investigating Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign. You all know about the latest scandal uncovered by NY Times’ Maggie Haberman and Amy Chozick (both of whom are writing their own books about Hillary and the 2016 campaign). Clinton posted a very lengthy response explaining her decision and pointing out that by not firing Glenn Thrush, NY Times did in 2017 what she, Clinton, is criticized for doing in 2008. Shit hits the fan as the media goes into epileptic seizures. How dare Clinton not crawl on all fours apologizing and criticize the NY Times. All the usual suspects have thoughts. Today a NY Times Rome bureau chief attacked Chelsea Clinton on Twitter for saying she was proud of her mother. Because this is the most important story of our day.

It is not Devin Nunes’ war with the FBI and it’s not the latest revelation that Hope Hicks  – a woman who went from being a model to a senior role in the White House after

Hope Hicks

working for Ivanka – declared Junior’s emails about Trump Tower meeting with the Russians would never see the light of day. If Hicks declared that she intended to destroy evidence, that’s bad. Mark Corallo was member of Trump’s media team and he resigned from the administration – one of the very few people who have done so – because he feared they were obstructing justice. He is now a witness testifying to Mueller that Hicks said she’d make sure the Junior emails never saw the light of day, Hicks is denying it, and everyone thinks she needs a very good lawyer. Including Steve Bannon. The Times thinks they broke this story, but actually Michael Wolff broke the story in his book “Fire and Fury,” which many – notably NY Times folks – spent many days blasting as lies and hearsay. Well, Wolff wrote that Hicks said what NY Times now confirms she says and Steve Bannon yelled at her that she was dumb as a rock and he – Bannon – would call her father (!) and tell him she needs a lawyer. That’s actually sort of sweet of Bannon. But how did this story drop in the Times after being ignored in Wolff’s book? Are NY Times reporters scouring the book for good leads and following up on them? Or did someone leak it? Is FBI sending Trump a message by taking a shot at his beloved second daughter/lover? Or is Trump leaking this because throwing Hicks under the bus might save Junior? If he’s trying to save Junior, that’s kind of sweet too! See, Bannon and Trump aren’t all bad, just mostly bad!

Trey Benghazi Gowdy Doody has said he will not seek reelection. He is too upset with partisanship in Washington DC. He said that with a straight face. And Zeus did not throw a bolt a lighting at his head.

So that was all yesterday. Oh, also, the entire USA Gymnastics board did resign, as demanded by the Olympic Committee. They waited until the last day of the deadline to do it, because they are super classy.

January was fun! What will February bring us? Any predictions?
