We should not get fatigued since there are only 185 days left. The GOP will go Benghazi/Hunter Biden until the election, even as with the attempt to free Flynn. it will only reveal all those Russian connections dispersed among the GOP. The GOP senate subpoenas will be greater nuisances as the Fall approaches.

A large part of the country suffers from Trump Fatigue Syndrome. This is related but not identical to Trump Derangement Syndrome. The sufferers of Trump Fatigue aren’t driven mad by the president. They are just tired of having to wake up every morning to another of his sudden attacks, reversals, exaggerations, and boasts. They want the show to end. That is why the impeachment polls mirror the job approval polls. If you like Trump, you can’t have enough of him. If you dislike him, you want him to go away. Now.…

Senate Republicans issued their first subpoena on Wednesday as part of wide-ranging investigations tied to the Obama administration, deepening a battle in Congress with implications for this fall’s presidential race.

The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted along party lines to issue a subpoena for Blue Star Strategies, a firm with ties to Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), the chairman of the panel, has homed in on the U.S. firm as he probes Hunter Biden‘s work for Burisma Holdings, where Biden — the son of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden — was a member of the board until he stepped down in 2019.

The subpoena asks for records from Blue Star Strategies from Jan. 1, 2013, to the present “related to work for or on behalf of Burisma Holdings or individuals associated with Burisma.”

“This is not a serious bipartisan investigation in the tradition of this committee, and I do not believe we should be going down this road,” Peters said during the committee meeting.…

The WaPo is reporting that Flynn’s name was never “masked” in his phone calls with Kislyak.

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s name was never “masked” by the FBI in the document that cited it. It flies in the face of President Donald Trump’s claim that someone illegally leaked it form former President Barack Obama’s administration.


According to the report: “in the FBI report about the communications between the two men, Flynn’s name was never redacted, former U.S. officials said.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) announced that he wants to subpoena witnesses over the unmasking of Flynn. He sent a letter demanding Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell ask why a declassified list of Obama officials made the requests “that revealed Flynn’s name in intelligence documents ‘did not contain a record showing who unmasked’ Flynn’s identity in relation to “his phone call with” the Russian diplomat, Sergey Kislyak,” said the Post.…
