NEW at POLITICO: "The [House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence] inches closer to treacherous political issues connected to Mueller’s probe, including....investigation into Trump’s finances and allegations that he is compromised by foreign actors."
The *last four words*.
1/ Remember what this feed has said since the Mueller Report was released on April 18th: Mueller's "conspiracy" inquiry in Volume 1 was a *narrow* inquiry into a *narrow* criminal allegation that *no one ever made*; an investigation of the *real* issues still lies ahead of us.
2/ Here's the incredible part: that POLITICO story is about how the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has suddenly become as *bipartisan* as it ever has been during the Trump era. And it's happening right as it begins looking at whether Trump is compromised. Hmm...
