The Rachel Maddow Show – March 26, 2018

 

 

A big move that appears to have been coordinated with European allies: “The United States and the European Union on Monday announced the expulsion of dozens of Russian diplomats in response to the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal on British soil allegedly orchestrated by the Kremlin.”

Legal developments of note: “Stormy Daniels filed an amended lawsuit Monday that alleges Donald Trump’s personal lawyer defamed her and violated campaign finance law by brokering a ‘hush agreement’ just before the 2016 election.”

In related news: “President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, demanded Stormy Daniels ‘cease and desist’ after the adult-film star said in a ’60 Minutes’ TV interview that she was threatened with violence to stay silent about an alleged affair with Trump.”

A hard-to-justify deportation: “Federal authorities deported a military veteran who served two tours in Afghanistan but was later convicted of drug crimes, an agency spokeswoman said Sunday. In a statement, the spokeswoman, Nicole Alberico of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, said immigration agents returned Miguel Perez Jr., 39, to Mexican authorities on Friday.”

I hope this doesn’t have anything to do with undermining pending litigation: “Remington Arms Co filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in a Delaware court on Sunday to carry out a debt-cutting deal with creditors amid mounting public pressure for greater gun control.”
