Mueller prosecutor has experience in prosecuting the "Brooklyn mob," i.e., "Kosher Nostra," and witness-flipping. As WMR has been reporting, Trump's criminal activity has all been financial, not "national security."

"Third Way" party wins solid majority in French parliament. "Third Way" is bad news and brings about a federalized Europe, continuing unchecked migration, and crippling austerity.
Estonia establishes first "data embassy" abroad. Data embassy in Luxembourg will have diplomatic immunity. Does that include from the NSA and Five Eyes?
