Dossier Do-si-do

On Tuesday, WaPo broke the news that the Clinton camp and DNC funded the team working on what became the famous Trump dossier. The dossier was funded by GOP Trump opponents during the primary and those payments were picked up by democrats during the general election. Thus, the main takeaway: It’s good to be in the dossier business.

+ The Atlantic: “In the final hours of Tuesday night, the Senate voted to nullify a rule that would’ve allowed customers of banks, credit-card companies, and other financial institutions to join together in class-action lawsuits if they felt they’d been wronged.” (I must have missed this chapter in the book on populism.)

+ “Ultimately, he determined that any good such a martyrdom might yield would be outweighed by the grim realities of waging a doomed-to-fail campaign.” McKay Coppins on The Tragedy of Jeff Flake.

+ Trump brushed off the historic same party attacks he received on Tuesday: “The meeting with Republican Senators yesterday, outside of Flake and Corker, was a love fest with standing ovations.” (Unless any of those Republican Senators stands up and says otherwise, this is one case where you have to believe the president.)

+ CBC “The new U.S. ambassador to Canada says that when it comes to climate change she believes in ‘both sides of the science.'” (Canada, consider this appointment payback for Bieber…)
