That was news?

One or two major news sources confirmed today that Jared Kushner is the person of the FBI’s interest in Trump’s immediate circle; other reports say that Ivanka Trump is another.  This was treated as a major revelation on Twitter and cable news, but I don’t know why.  We’ve known about the Kusher situation for almost a week; I remember writing about it here.

Frankly I’m getting tired of two tendencies: things we already know being treated as major revelations when merely repeated, and all the weird tangents people keep going off on.

An example of a tangent: big rumor of the evening after Trump spent the day making an ass out of himself before NATO is that our NATO allies may now be fed up enough with Trump that they will OOOPS, accidentally leak some of the intel they have on him.  *sigh*  We’ve already broached this subject, and they’ve been disgusted with Trump for months.  Nothing has happened.  I don’t know why people keep charging off down this dead-end road.

Even if the Europeans do leak something it will be publicly treated as “unverified” here, and be of no help to us.  Remember that Trump has the majority party behind him, and a bunch of billionaires and Russians (and Russian billionaires) behind him and the Republicans (the majority party) as well.  An “unverified” European pee-pee tape may serve as sufficient evidence to convict a Democrat, but it will not work with Trump, McConnell, Ryan, Pence, Flynn, Manafort, or any of the rest of the traitors simply because the cancer they are a part of is so advanced.

It’s been decades in the making, remember that.  It will not be undone overnight, or easily.  It will certainly not be undone by a European intelligence leak.

Anyway, there are some people who are still actually revealing new information.  As much as I hate to credit Seth Abramson, he posted this thread on Twitter tonight that may change the name of this scandal from “Kremlingate” (or “Trump-Russia,” or “Russiagate”) to simply, “Mayflower.”
