Robert Mueller reportedly ready to release key findings—but will wait until after midterms

According to a report in Bloomberg, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is ready with “key findings” in the investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives. The Mueller investigation has already generated indictments against 32 individuals and three companies, and generated guilty pleas on subjects from bank fraud to lying to the FBI. However, the special counsel’s office is supposedly standing by with results in two areas at the heart of the investigation: Did the Trump campaign conspire with Russian operatives, and did Donald Trump obstruct justice by interfering in the investigation? Unlike 2016, when then FBI director James Comey issued a letter to Congress concerning the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server that demonstrably swayed voters in the last days before the election, Mueller appears to be sitting on these results until after the voters have their say. Even then, word that Mueller is ready to hand findings on these areas over to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein doesn’t mean there will be any public announcement. Mueller is not about to call a Comey-style press conference and harangue Trump on every channel. Instead these results will be presented in a confidential report. When they become public—if they ever become public—will likely be the responsibility of whoever Donald Trump seats as attorney general following the election. Republicans have already made it clear to Trump that, come one minute after the polls close on Election Day, they’re ready to wash their hands of Jefferson Sessions. Former senator or not, they’re tired of Trump’s whining and ready to approve a new attorney general. Regardless of the outcome in the election, the first order of business in the lame duck sessions is likely to be 51 Republican senators giving a very quick affirmative to AG Whoever-Trump-Wants. That new AG need not keep Rosenstein in place as the direct supervisor of the Russia investigation. Since Trump’s primary complaint about Sessions is that he recused himself from handling the investigation, it seems more than likely that, even should Rosenstein retain his seat, he won’t retain direct control of Mueller’s team. Any report issued after November 6 … may be the same as no report at all. Or may be as cherry-picked as Devin Nunes’s report from the House Intelligence Committee, leaving in only those results favorable to Trump while expunging any offenses. If Robert Mueller actually does have results, whether those results implicate Trump or exonerate him, those results should be released now. Because it’s the best chance they have of not simply being stifled by Trump.

Daily Kos raises over $100,000 in 70 minutes to fight voter suppression in North Dakota

In the span of just over an hour, Daily Kos has already raised over $100,000 to defeat Republican-backed voter suppression in North Dakota. In partnership with North Dakota Native Vote, Daily Kos launched a push to raise funds for this effort to reach Native American voters to provide the free, updated identification cards made necessary by a recent U.S. Supreme Court move allowing implementation of North Dakota’s voter ID law.   “Daily Kos was thrilled to partner with North Dakota Native Vote to help remedy this stark attempt at voter suppression,” said Daily Kos communications director Carolyn Fiddler. “North Dakota Republicans nakedly targeted Native Americans when they passed a law requiring voters to present ID cards bearing a residential street address before casting ballots. Since the U.S. Postal Service doesn’t provide residential delivery to many rural reservations and tribal communities, many tribal IDs use P.O. boxes, and the new law could lead to the disenfrachisement of some 70,000 Native voters.” “Native American voting rights have been increasingly under attack in North Dakota due to the growing Native American voting block,” said North Dakota Native Vote executive director Marci McLean. “The Native vote can be the deciding factor in close races. The recent Supreme Court ruling sparked an uptick in national partnerships to fight for equitable access to election services in North Dakota to protect the rights we have and move towards equal access.”    Daily Kos has led the way in supporting Democrats and progressive causes across the country this cycle, raising over $7.4 million for campaigns and candidates in 2017-2018. North Dakota Native Vote advocates for political and economic empowerment and cultural self-determination for North Dakota's Native Americans.

Arctic greening thaws permafrost, boosts runoff

A new collaborative study has investigated Arctic shrub-snow interactions to obtain a better understanding of the far north's tundra and vast permafrost system. Incorporating extensive in situ observations, scientists tested their theories with a novel 3D computer model and confirmed that shrubs can lead to significant degradation of the permafrost layer that has remained frozen for tens of thousands of years. These interactions are driving increases in discharges of fresh water into rivers, lakes and oceans.
