How did you assemble this List?  VERY carefully!

An endless day in US politics included: withdrawl from the Iran nuclear deal; a trip to North Korea (start by learning their leader’s name); jaw-dropping revelations about payments made to Michael Cohen’s Essential Consultants LLC from a company tied to a Russian oligarch questioned by Mueller’s team and corporations including AT&T (with a Twitter team that didn’t handle the news so well) and Novartis (Avenatti says to follow where the money went); more on Michael Cohen’s financial difficulties as he pledged his apartment as collateral; more ethics problems for Scott Pruitt (and Hugh Hewitt); reports that Trump ignored warnings from the State Department about deporting 300,000 Central Americans and Haitians currently in the country legally; bogus statistics used to justify separating families at the border; Russian hackers posed as IS to threaten military wives; a report from the Senate Intelligence Committee on Russian targeting of election infrastructure; fair-housing advocates sued HUD for suspending fair-housing rules; the Department of Labor sought to allow teenagers to work longer hours in hazardous jobs; Alex van der Zwaan reported to prison; and primaries in four states (results cheat sheet). Today: confirmation hearings for CIA Director nominee Gina Haspel, “a Referendum on (Un-)Accountability”. Fatima Boudchar, who was tortured in a secret facility in Thailand, has A Few Questions for Gina Haspel.
