Thursday DIY Politics

It's Thursday and I have to head out soon, so there's only one way to get this done. The news is still dominated by the raid on President Trump's domicile. A couple of new salient observations, in addition to heaps of speculation and opinion. First, the upper levels of DOJ have started to back away from this thing, with spokespeople saying Garland did not know, or at least did not know when it was scheduled. Second, rumors are floating of a "mole" in Mar-a-Lago who told the FBI where to go and what to look for:
