INSIDE: Peter Navarro ... Leonard Leo ... George Santos
Thank you again for a superb summary of today’s important news. Between Marcy Wheeler’s deep dives (Emptywheel), Kareem Abdul-Jabar’s newsletter and TPM, I feel confident I’m in good hands to stay off bird app. Now I need to formalize and subscribe to @TPM. The planetary defense reminded me of how the late, great Eric Boelert would share great music. Thank you!
Do you think that prosecutors are letting the Stormy Daniels case go "first" to test the jury pool?
"“Such offers almost always indicate an indictment is close; it would be unusual for the district attorney, Alvin L. Bragg, to notify a potential defendant without ultimately seeking charges against him,” the NYT reported.
Of course. As in "duh." If they don't intend to charge him, why bother asking him to testify at all? The NYT needs some new copy editors.
