I thought J-Kush was a type of weed.

In a reply Jan. 30, before he was sworn in, Mnuchin said he would "ensure the appropriate Department components assess whether further investigation of this matter is warranted." The Treasury Department did not respond to CNN requests for an update

Mnuchin gave you an update.  He nailed down the edges of the existing sanctions.  Good for him.

I bet Trump is upset about that, but it's the same situation as Rod Rosenstein - not much Trump can do about it.

Meriam-Webster would undoubtedly tweet that you are technically correct, the very best kind of correct.

/for certain less fun definitions of weed.

Srsly, imagine how much weed it would take to get through having the Tangerine Toddler as a father-in-law.

For somebody who claims to have nothing to do with Russia, Donald Trump sure hangs out with a lot of people who neck deep in borscht.

THIS meeting is not Kushner.

This is a Scaramucchi meeting with a sanctioned fund.

And Schwartzman, who is chair of  Trump's Strategic & Policy Forum, who served on the international advisory panel for the fund.  Which is and was under sanctions.

Because no one plays who doesn't have a connection to Russia or the mob, or both.

Apparently.

Oh, come on, those are just coincidences. Like that Russian billionaire who's known to be a conduit for Putin, who just happened to park his plane at the Charlotte airport at the same time as Trump, right before the election. Who hasn't heard from the throngs of people around the world that if they could be rich and have their own private jet, their first vacation destination would be Charlotte?

Oh man, this story even embroils the ole' Scaramuch and Goldman Sachs.  This looks like a goldmine will take a while to parse out.

I'm starting to think that the Trump administration might have some ties to Russia.  Hard to say.

Inner innermost circle, meaning he was acting on express orders from "Big Pappa," but who cares, Republicans don't give a single fark on this or any issue unrelated to hammering a giant dildo into the ass of every poor and Middle-Class American.

I'll go out on a limb here and say there's a clue in your Fark handle....the next 3.5 years are going to be one long, unrelenting silly season.

Part of the transition from democracy to oligarchy requires accepting that all "business" dealings of the elite are proper and just.

So to answer your question; you may have to wait until pigs fly.

Understand, the finale to this show that we think couldn't get any more farked up, might be; it gets more farked up when its all handwaved away and is the new normal.

Just one more window broken in the now 40year neocon smash-and-grab.

Soo... at what point can we PLEASE perp-walk a few of these Futhermuckers right off the Grounds of the West Wing in front of every news camera for miles?

It would certainly accelerate Hair Furor's psychological Downfall.

The Russkies are trying anything and every thing short of war to get those sanctions lifted. Still won't pull back from The Ukraine or the Crimean peninsula. Congress just short circuited there American attempt. Let's see how far they'll go.
