If You're Into the Mueller Investigation...
Consider this a Public Service Announcement.
We don't get a lot of news in Canada about the Mueller investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Most of what we do get is tepid, recycled stuff from the American media. It's thin gruel, marginally informative at best.
There is a website/blog that is incredibly informative about Mueller, his team and they prey they are pursuing. The author goes by the pseudonym, "emptywheel."
In her latest offering, said to have been typed while her husband still slept (they're supposed to be on vacation), emptywheel writes that on Monday we should get the first glimpse into what Mueller's team has on the "hack and leak" scandal.
She also offers an excellent look at the procedural thrust and parry underway between Manafort's counsel and Mueller's team. This shows how major litigation is fought both tactically and strategically. There is a discernible choreography that, once revealed, can be usefully predictive.
In any event, if you want something significantly better than what's dished out by CNN or, heaven forbid, any Canadian media, check out emptywheel.
