Good overview (with less breathlessness) of where we stand post-Flynn plea. Bottom line: don't expect a collusion case, likely obstruction. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/454311/mueller-strategy-obstruction-justice-investigation-leading…

This is amazing: The GOP’s list of "economists" backing the Trump tax cut includes ghosts, office assistants, ex-felons and a sprinkling of real economists (including some who’ve disavaowed the letters claims). https://theintercept.com/2017/12/01/gops…

Just to be SUPER CLEAR: The GOP's tax scam bill is NOT law yet. At the very least, the House will have to vote one more time (and possibly the Senate too). If you're furious, now is the time to backlash like you've never backlashed before.

5. The deemed repatriation rates get hiked as another pay-for to cover the cost of late changes. Now matches House's 14% (cash and equivalents) and 7% (reinvested foreign earnings) rather than the Senate's original 10 and 5% rates.

The Senate bill taxes all university endowments bigger than $250,000 per student. Except a last minute change that would exempt one school. This is the opposite of tax reform https://twitter.com/SethHanlon/status/936759040645967873 …

Agreed! Trump family essentially becomes a non taxable entity under this bill. Incredible that #TaxReform has advanced without disclosure of his tax returns. https://twitter.com/alecmacgillis/status/936626812490256384 …
