Attorney General William P. Barr will nominate Jay Clayton to serve as the new U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.

There is a criminal investigation into Deutsche Bank currently occurring in SDNY. Deutsche Bank is Trump’s principal lender and possesses all of his financial data. Jay Clayton counted Deutsche Bank as a client and defended them in a massive money laundering scandal.

There is also an ongoing criminal investigation into Rudy Giuliani, which will presumably disappear when a Trump sycophant takes over the office.

So … usual corrupt shenanigans.

Except for one thing. The current guy did not actually step down!

So … usual chaos.



Berman has cleaned out his desk. Barr and Berman seem to have reached a compromise. Berman’s trusted deputy will continue in the US Attorney position until the Senate can confirm a replacement. I assume the Democrats will delay the confirmation of Jay Clayton as long as possible

A summary. Among other things, he says

  • John Bolton opposed his decision to ban some travel from China. (Bolton had been gone for many months by that time.)
  • He has “two African-American friends and supporters” who told him about Juneteenth
  • Masks and testing are overrated in the battle against the coronavirus.
  • In fact, some Americans might wear face masks not as a way to prevent the spread of coronavirus but as a way to “signal disapproval” of him.

Farewell to the ultimate supporting player. He was Bilbo in the Lord of the Rings films, and played Napoleon more than once. If I can name a favorite movie, he was probably in it: Henry V, Lord of War, The Sweet Hereafter, The Fifth Element, Brazil, Alien, Robin and Marian …

Although he may have been the greatest supporting actor of the past 40 years or so, he never won an Oscar for his efforts. He was nominated only once, long ago, for Chariots of Fire. He was nominated for six BAFTAs, but won only once, and that was 52 years ago (!!), for The Bofors Gun.

She’s in the tub taking a bath, but you can’t see jack.

(Or, more important, jill.)

You can see some booty cheeks in the other image, but after all her fitness training and weight reduction, she really doesn’t have any booty left. She has gone full Connelly.

You never go full Connelly.
