Tuesday brought several dramatic developments in the Russia saga, including the news that Mueller recently interviewed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the first Cabinet official known to be questioned in the investigation. The New York Times also reported that former FBI Director James Comey was interviewed by Mueller last year.” MORE

“Opinion: Election Nullification Petition Is Distributed To SCOTUS Justices”


POLITICUS USA

Last month three Americans filed a petition with the Supreme Court of the United States for a “writ of mandamus” asking the High Court Justices to take “mandatory action” in what is called “the nature of public duty.” FisherShannon at Daily Kos first reported a couple of weeks ago that the “hopeful” document was filed by Diane Blumstein, Donna Soodalter-Toman, and Nancy Goodman, and that the petition was assigned a docket number, 16-907. The filers had waited for the High Court to render a decision on whether or not to even look at the filing, a decision the Court promised by February 21, 2017.

On Wednesday, that decision was rendered when the petition was distributed to the High Court’s Justices for a conference scheduled for March 17, 2017.  MORE
