And the FBI knew it.

It’s amazing how much mainstream media political coverage of the Wuhan caronavirus pandemic resembles Russia-collusion reporting.

With Russia-collusion reporting, there were serial media bombshells of collusion based on anonymous sources how were “familiar” with a document or heard something from someone.

Yesterday I reported that Pelosi/Schumer may stymie Paycheck Protection Program expansion over unrelated new spending demands.

The PPP provides forgivable loans to small businesses on the condition that the funds be used for paying workers, with a portion permitted to be paid for certain fixed costs like rent.

With Bernie suspending his campaign today, it might seem self-evident that Joe Biden will be the Democratic nominee.
