-----notes------


1. Those wanting more background on the "intelligence origins" of the information in the transcript may find the recent book by Luke Harding, Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win helpful.

2. It is pitiful that our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. gets so little pushback from Congress in general and the Republican Party in particular. Those that dare do their job or offer even minimal pushback are called courageous heroes!?

Our nation is in terrible self inflicted chaos—kudos to comedian "Amber Cougar Mellencamp" for her delightful ditty!

The Democratic Party has declined to endorse the octogenarian senator for reelection.
