Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today Maria Butina pleaded guilty to infiltrating the National Rifle Association and the Republican Party, including the Trump 2016 campaign, to advance Russian policy interests. Also, the Washington Post’s Philip Bump dissects the God-King’s Twitter tantrum about campaign finance laws, and Axios’ Khorri Atkinson explores the God-King’s latest whataboutism. And federal prosecutors at the Southern District of New York are investigating the God-King’s 2017 inaugural fundraising, including donations offered in exchange for “policy concessions or to influence official administration positions,” based in part on materials seized in the April raid on Michael Cohen’s office and home. Will the God-King’s next chief of staff be Stoolie Steve in Cellblock E?
