Republicans are playing a cynical long game here:

They refuse to comment on extreme anti-abortion bills, but are content to install anti-choice judges across the federal bench who may ultimately be responsible for upholding those very same laws. pic.twitter.com/wk9gA3RAVw

So, it turns out that creating a coalition government with far-right weirdos in bed with the Kremlin was not actually a great long-term political plan.

Who could have guessed?

Palmer Report: The real story behind the controversy that’s erupted over Robert Mueller’s public testimony

When it comes to Robert Mueller’s inevitable public testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, two separate parallel tracks are playing out, and it’s not difficult to parse why it hasn’t happened yet. He’ll want to resign before testifying, so William Barr’s DOJ can’t screw with him, and he’s not quite ready to resign because he’s still using his position as Special Counsel to forcibly unearth the redacted portions of his report.


Last week Mueller used a court filing to publicly expose that Michael Flynn had turned over a mountain of testimony and evidence against Donald Trump. This means that when Mueller does testify, he can talk about what Flynn gave up on Trump, and Barr won’t be able to claim that Mueller is violating executive privilege by doing so. It’s pretty obvious at this point that once Mueller is done exposing the evidence, he’ll resign and then testify. In the meantime, we’re seeing a lot of nonsense being reported about Mueller.



Take, for instance, today’s new report from CNN. It’s being widely misinterpreted by the public as Robert Mueller being hesitant to testify for fear of appearing political. But if you actually read, the article, the first sentence gives away that this is something else entirely: “Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has expressed reluctance to him testifying publicly in front of the House Judiciary Committee, according to sources familiar with the matter.”




So it’s not Robert Mueller who’s worried about looking political, it’s that someone on Mueller’s team is afraid Mueller will look political. That’s meaningless, considering that Mueller is their boss. Further, if the source of this story were actually someone on Mueller’s team, it would say so. Instead, some source “familiar with the matter” who’s not on Mueller’s team is putting words in the mouth of someone who is on Mueller’s team, in the apparent hope of making it look like those words are coming from Mueller. But you only have to read one sentence into the article to figure out that this is a non-story.


What’s really going on here? It couldn’t be more obvious why Robert Mueller hasn’t testified yet; the Flynn court filing made that 100% clear. But because Mueller prefers to do his work in silence, it opens the door for anyone to feed any nonsense they want to the media, in the hope of muddying the waters. Of course Mueller is going to testify. House Democrats know this, and they’re satisfied with why Mueller hasn’t testified yet, or they’d have subpoenaed him by now. None of this is difficult to parse; you just need to know what to ignore.

The 2010 NFL Draft comes full circle for the Buccaneers with the Ndamukong Suh signing

The Buccaneers’ draft strategy in 2010 was to take whichever elite defensive tackle the Lions didn’t want.

Many things have changed for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the last nine years. They’re on a fifth head coach since then, and their entire 2010 draft class is gone now after the decision to release Gerald McCoy.

McCoy, 31, made six Pro Bowls in his time with the team and lived up to his status as the No. 3 overall pick in his draft class. But he was eager to join a playoff contender and avoid living through another rebuild of the Buccaneers defense. So the defensive tackle and the Buccaneers “mutually agreed” that it was time for the team to part ways with McCoy and his $13 million cap hit.

The Bucs’ replacement is the player who was taken one pick ahead of McCoy in the 2010 NFL Draft: Ndamukong Suh.

Once upon a time, Suh and McCoy were the clear-cut top defensive prospects in the NFL Draft. The St. Louis Rams were locked in on using the No. 1 pick to take Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Sam Bradford, leaving the Detroit Lions the option to take Suh or McCoy at No. 2 — one pick ahead of the Buccaneers.

“You could flip a coin on these two based on how they played and how they transitioned character-wise,” ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. said of the two defensive tackles in an April 2010 conference call. “Everyone raves about Suh and McCoy … the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will just sit there and take which one is left.”

The Lions picked Suh, the player most considered the better of the two. That left McCoy for the Buccaneers, who swore they were hoping the dominoes would fall the way they did.

“This is exactly who we wanted,” then-Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris said of McCoy. “This is exactly who we went out to get and we got him. He’s a perfect fit for what we do.”

Only those in the Buccaneers’ war room nine years ago know if that was the truth. But nearly a decade later, Tampa Bay is filling McCoy’s shoes with the player they almost certainly would’ve picked if the Lions made a different choice. A player who has had a remarkably similar career — at least, statistically — as McCoy.

If every team had a do-over of the 2010 NFL Draft, the Rams would probably take back their decision to select a quarterback who only played 49 games for them. The Lions might not want to take Suh, considering he left for a record-breaking contract with the Dolphins after five years in Detroit.

Tampa Bay’s strategy of happily picking whichever elite defensive tackle prospect fell into its lap aged well, though.

Suh isn’t the same player he was when he signed his blockbuster deal with Miami as the most prized free agent of 2015. He turned 32 in January and had to wait until May to find a team, despite sitting No. 21 on our list of the top free agents of 2019. But the Bucs will still get a glimpse of what could’ve been if the Lions made a different choice way back in 2010.
