This seems ... remarkably clear cut? 1) Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort stepped down last August in the wake of reports of his murky financial dealings with Russia-aligned Ukrainian leaders. 2) The Associated Press broke a bombshell story revealing that as recently as 2009, Manafort had a $10 million annual contract with a Russian oligarch in Putin’s inner circle in which he agreed to promote the Kremlin’s interest in Washington. He had not previously disclosed the lobbying agreement, and it stands at odds with all his public claims that he never worked for Russian interests."

We just talked about this on the air. Chuck Barris was a nut, in the best possible way. At one point almost every single game show on ABC was a "Chuck Barris Production." Who didn't love "The Dating Game" and "The Newlywed Game." Also, "The Gong Show" was amazingly innovative for its' time. The great actress Mare Winningham once went on The Gong Show, dressed in horrible garb, she was about to get gonged, and then she sang the most beautiful version of "Here, There and Everywhere" that you have ever heard and one of the panelists, Paul Williams, with tears in his eyes said to her, "No one will ever laugh at you again." The best TV is always single "moments," and there are very few people who brought more moments to television than Chuck Barris, who will never be duplicated.

This is a trap for Republicans. Both the process and the substance of the American Health Care Act have revealed a political party that has lost sight of the fact that the true test of legislation isn’t whether it passes, but whether it works. Republican leaders have moved this bill as fast as possible, with as little information as possible, and with no evident plan for what will happen if the bill actually becomes law and wreaks havoc in people’s lives. This is not the health reform package Donald Trump promised his voters, it’s not the health reform package conservative policy experts recommended to House Republicans, and it’s not the health reform package that polling shows people want.

William Patterson So let's not give the rich the tax break, and let's cut that out of our military budget.
Charles Hulett A wasteful creature is tearing at the programs that grace American culture, please stop donny desecration.
Gerry Mander But isn't the money going to trickle down to the middle class and those in poverty like it always has in the past with republican administrations
Omar Siddique House leadership narrowly beats back showing a shred of responsibility
Suzanne Davies Well Rand Paul and the freedom caucus will sure be behind that one 😂😂😂

The lies don't get more clear cut than this:

The president’s official Twitter account is spreading falsehoods about the Comey hearing

He’s peddling blatantly misleading claims about Russia’s involvement in the election.

Larry Usselman Sorry, Ezra, he's not "peddling blatantly misleading claims" He's lying out of his ass and hoping the suckers that still support him will believe him.
Jamie Sivolella Osygus The GOP didn't care about the lies. All they cared about were the leaks! I have never seen anything like it. GOD help us if Trump were "Hillary," she would have been crusified! It is a GOP Regime. America and her Democracy take a back ...
Manuel Ferreira It's coming. Look for Trump's monkeys to reach Trump defense fatigue as his despicable hijinx and dishonesty festers into an epic freak show.

Remember when we talked about not normalizing Trump? Here's a test case. Read what happened in today's hearing, and try to keep in mind just how unprecedented and outlandish this is.

All of Trump’s wiretap claims have now officially been debunked by the FBI and NSA

Elaine Richard Watching Comey, with his smug famed confidence in his own personal integrity, I can't help but be reminded of what he did at the last moment to Hillary Clinton. And it makes me slightly sick.
Anna Sylvan It doesn't change anything, does it? Trump is going to keep on lying regardless. Nothing phases him. He doesn't care. This is who he is - a no-good buffoon, sick narcissist, in your face showman, selfish, arrogant, with no remorse .... should ...

Geneva Queen-Sinor I am not watching it but I did hear the FBI director say he can't comment on an investigation while it is still in process. HUH? What was that letter he put out right before the 2016 election about Hillary Clinton and a computer that didn't ...
Sandy Huseby Would that Trey Gowdy cared a fraction as much about crimes against our democracy as he is about the leaker.
Sharon Rossi Right. The FBI was forced into this action, however they may choose to be lax in their investigation. Comey is a Republican tool, as he has shown.
Paula Paris Comey just said that they cannot disclose if there is an ongoing investigation. BUT then why did he come out and publicly announce that H. Clinton's emails were continuing to be investigated when there was nothing there but private emails to her ...

Gorsuch is looking increasingly like the only major thing Trump will get done in the beginning of his term. There's a huge debate right now on Capitol Hill on the extent to which Democrats should oppose Gorsuch. What do you think?

He’s a solid conservative with strong intellectual chops.

I'm immensely proud that we can produce this work at Vox. Please take a second to figure out how the Republican AHCA healthcare plan would affect you. A reminder: the vote on the House is this upcoming Thursday. So if you think there's someone you know who is indifferent or confused about how this bill might affect them, please send this story their way.

How would the Republican health care plan affect you?

Susan Hugus Good way to show the cost for each person. For a few folks; however, some in MA will never have Medicare.

Edward Gutierrez Thank you for helping to put the GOP's cruelty in perspective.
Janet Thomas My premium will go from $82 to $597 a month. ACA saved my life. Trumpcare might shorten it. Thanks alot 45 and Mr. Ryan.

One of Glen Campbell's biggest songs of is "By The Time I Get To Phoenix," and of course I am in Phoenix as I am writing this. Just checking the trades tonight I came across this story which makes me sad; but this news also encouraged me to listen to some classic Glen Campbell, my very favorite "Wichita Lineman" is directly below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HFCuBLAjXo How both cruel and frightening Alzheimer's disease is, and my hope is that while we continue to support both research and caregivers; that there can be some significant progress made in diminishing the horrible effects of the disease. I am thinking of Glen Campbell tonight.
