FBI ‘Granted FISA Warrant’ Covering Trump Camp’s Ties To Russia (including server)

The FISA warrant was granted in connection to investigate suspected activity between the server and two banks, SVB Bank and Alfa Bank. However, it is thought in the intelligence community that the warrant covers any ‘US person’ connected to this investigation, and thus covers Donald Trump and at least three further men who have either formed part of his campaign or acted as his media surrogates. The warrant was sought, they say, because actionable intelligence on the matter provided by friendly foreign agencies could not properly be examined without a warrant by US intelligence as it involves ‘US Persons’ who come under the remit of the FBI and not the CIA. Should a counter-intelligence investigation lead to criminal prosecutions, sources say, the Justice Department is concerned that the chain of evidence have a basis in a clear warrant.

Hidden vote: women.

A thought that occurred to me while reading some commentary on polilng. What does the early vote look like with women compared to 2012. If anyone has that data, it would be interesting to share.

It's possible that a "hidden women vote" can in part counteract any "hidden white vote" (which as likely as not does not actually exist).

I think we have this locked down folks

Mostly I just want this called early. Florida or NC, come through...I need my sleep.


The only possible way don't win is if we are somehow not polling enough poor whites. I think the analysis of this heretofore has been pretty sound, though.

Heads up on oppo dump and Eichenwald

I had one person tell me Eichenwald is not oppo dump, but related for it (context). I had another person tell me it is the oppo dump.

So I honestly don't know at this point.

4 NH polls today

2 are not great so far but one is ARG so can likely be completely discounted.
Other 2 dropping later. Would be nice to see a firewall there.
