Link Roundups & LinkDumps

Friday Notes: Trump, COVID-19, Monkeypox, & Polio

One thing we learned today is that Trump is being investigated for possible obstruction of justice and violations of the Espionage Act. Fun!

Trump and his various minions are shoveling shit just as fast as they can. The current bullshit is that the FBI planted all that evidence, that Trump had declassified it all anyway, and that Obama stole 33 million classified documents. Which, in order: No they didn’t; he can’t because he’s not allowed to declassify nuclear secrets; and what? Like, that would be several tons of papers that Obama apparently sneaked out the door with, so that seems pretty goddamned unlikely.

Quick reminder to go sign up at, because that’s looking more and more likely. I mean, I hate to get my hopes up, but… 🤞
