According to Wolff, Mueller’s team drew up both the three-count indictment of Trump and a draft memorandum of law opposing an anticipated motion to dismiss.

Mueller’s spokesman has responded:

The special counsel’s spokesman actually said, “The documents that you’ve described do not exist.” The complication is that they do exist. Wolff has allowed journalists to see them, and says they are “based on internal documents given to me by sources close to the Office of the Special Counsel.”

Therefore, either the special counsel’s office is lying, or Wolff’s documents are forgeries, or some of Mueller’s underlings created them without his knowledge. The special counsel’s office has always shot straight, so it’s hard to believe they would lie now. If they are not forgeries, why was Mueller’s spokesman unaware of them and who created them? If they are forgeries, who forged them? Those questions are more interesting than Wolff’s actual book. It appears that there are more secrets waiting to be revealed.

Here’s the story from The Guardian.

It’s 2% for comparable work, and it is shrinking.

These people are really struggling to find outrage in those facts. Check out the wording of their summary:

“When men and women with the same employment characteristics do similar jobs, women earn $0.98 for every dollar earned by an equivalent man. In other words, a woman who is doing the same job as a man, with the exact same qualifications as a man, is still paid two percent less. Unfortunately, this controlled wage gap has only shrunk by a miniscule (sic) amount of $0.008 since 2015.”

Ah, math! How tricky thou art! That .008 is not that minuscule at all. That means the gap went from .028 to .020. Another way to word that could be “The gap has shrunk by nearly 30% in four years.” That’s quite a different spin, isn’t it?

The bottom line is that the gender PAY gap itself is 2% and shrinking, and that is almost insignificant. What is NOT minuscule is the gender EMPLOYMENT gap. While women make essentially the same pay as men when they work comparable jobs, the real problem is getting those comparable jobs in the first place. That’s the heart of the issue. Peddling the myth of the pay gap only distracts from recognizing the employment gap, which is anything but a myth. Women don’t make as much as men on the average, and the difference is significant, but it has almost nothing to do with equal pay for equal work. It is true because of complex issues related to women’s general lack of power in the corporate world and in society in general, and the corresponding lack of monetary respect for female-dominated professions.

Elizabeth Warren’s poll numbers are improving. Her increases are coming from two sources: (1) she is swaying the previously undecided; (2) Bernie is tumbling. Kamala Harris is also receiving a boost for the same reasons, but Warren is making more progress.

In the March 21-25 Quinnipiac poll, she was pulling a measly 4% among the Democratic contenders. In the most recent one, she’s pulling 13%. Biden is also up over that time period, Bernie is down.

In the Monmouth poll for April 11-15, she was at 6%, and in the new Monmouth she’s up to 10%. Biden, Warren and Harris are all up over that time period. Bernie is down. (By the way, 538 gives Monmouth their A+ rating, so that’s one to take seriously.)

In the Emerson poll for April 11-14, she was at 7%, and in the new Emerson she’s up to 10%. Just as in the Monmouth results, Biden, Warren and Harris are all up over that time period, while Bernie is down.

Warren is now outpolling Trump head-to-head, even in the new Rasmussen poll, which was a major one (5000 likely voters, with a margin of error below 2 points). That is significant news because Rasmussen consistently leans right by about four points. Both Rasmussen and Fox News now show Warren ahead of Trump face-to-face.
