BREAKING: Trump campaign again using foreign nationals to run its data operation, and again using methods that may be illegal and dovetail readily with foreign disinformation efforts, and you know they know it's wrong because they're again lying about it.  https://www.chicagotribune.com/nation-world/ct-trump-campaign-cambridge-analytica-20180615-story.html 

1/ I keep saying this and apparently I'll have to keep saying it: Trump and his cronies will keep doing wrong over and over and over until they face consequences for what they've done. They're doing all the same illegal things they did before because no one has ever stopped them.

2/ The one thing we *can't* be unclear on is this: they know what they're doing is wrong. They know what they're doing is illegal. They know they have to lie about what they're doing. They know what they're doing is cheating. And because they're bad people, they'll do it, anyway.
