As always the content is great but isn't it about time Virginia stopped using the word 'like' in a grammatically nonsensical way so often. sometimes 3 or 4 times in a sentence! Language is the professional tool of a journalist and to put what amounts to a random word in various places in sentences seems like a childish affectation. My children used to do the same thing but after a chat about how it didn't make sense they stopped the habit in a few weeks. Virginia has been found it for years and it didn't make her sound more 'with it', just a bit daft. keep up the good work.

I have assumed that Kamala Harris will close the deal about who Kavanut talking about Mueller with in closed session because it is a committee confidential document.

New offices for the FBI? I am waiting for the equally new Russian bugs to be installed and found with baited breath.

wow. what a let down after the previous edition. this guy uses 400 words where 40 would do, with none of the wit or juice or heart necessary to make me want to listen to him. I am curious now to take a look at his writing.

I find it interesting that you put so much pressure on Facebook and sort of paint Facebook as the irresponsible party whether it be willingly or just because they grew too big. But the truth is that the media crested Trump. First by promoting a TV show that was an adulation of wealth and a wealth that was largely untrue. Why don't we talk about the immense damage that this made to our society, this any pretty much every other reality show. Where did quality content went to die? Then the fascination of the news media with anything Trump related. Why do you still interview Conway? Why do all the late night shows do one thing and one thing only... talk about Trump. Why you still go to the press conferences with Sanders, let Alex Jones and the true fake news media cover them, let snakes feed off other snakes.

I think someone should take the time to piece together the videos/sound bites as to the changes of the campaign over time with dates to have a bigger impact in their own words. my 2 cents...
