This week’s Good News from the Resistance: Fox News is reeling because Robert Mueller has spent more than $6 million on his investigation. That may seem like a lot of money, until you consider this: it costs taxpayers more than $3 million each time 45 schleps his entourage to Mar-a-Lago. But here’s the $6 million question: what price would you put on the heads of Mueller’s targets; i.e. how much is it worth to you personally, to the country, to the world, and to the planet, for 45 and his Inner Circle to be forced to vacate the White House? To that we say, ka-ching, ka-ching, Mr. Mueller, keep that tab open. Our favorite move Mueller’s made so far? Even if 45 cans him, the investigation goes on. But you knew all of that. Here’s more Good News:
- Roll your eyes at Donny Jr. for his claim of attorney-client privilege
- Thank Obama for speaking the truth
- Look forward to reading 45’s subpoenaed Deutsche Bank records
- Reward Patagonia with your holiday shopping for resisting 45
- Pray that Pence gets his come-uppance
- Admire Manafort’s chutzpah for trying to mount PR campaign
- Wonder why Flynn sent text 11 minutes into 45’s presidency
- Cheer for Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos
- Support U.S. Olympic skier-resister Lindsey Vonn

WE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION
Mueller’s investigation has been getting the lion’s share of the spotlight, but let’s not forget the good work being done by the U.S. House Intelligence Committee. This week they boxed Donny Jr. into a corner with their questions about a conversation he had with his dad. His answer fell somewhere between laughable and pathetic. We look forward to the follow-up.
WE OBAMA’S REMARKS IN CHICAGO
Obama did not mince words during the Q&A at the Economic Club in Chicago. Let’s hope this is just the beginning, and that he plans to say and do more.
WE KNOWING THAT MUELLER IS GOING AFTER 45’S BANK RECORDS
Word on the street: Mueller has subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for 45’s family bank records. And that he got them.
WE PATAGONIA FOR TELLING 45 “YOU’RE STEALING OUR LAND”
Outdoor gear and clothing for sale are no longer the first things you see on Patagonia’s website.
WE IMAGINING PAUL RYAN AS PRESIDENT?????
Now that Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying, legal experts say the door is open for investigators to question Pence — who was leading 45’s transition team when Flynn was up to no good.
WE MANAFORT USING “TRACK CHANGES”
Not only did Manafort write an Op-Ed with a colleague who allegedly has ties to Russian intelligence — while under house arrest — but he made the mistake of using “Track Changes.” Mueller’s onto him.
WEFLYNN TEXTING DURING INAUGURATION
45 was sworn in at noon. At 12:11 p.m. Flynn sent a text to a business associate that said Obama’s Russia sanctions in response to 2016 election meddling would be “ripped up.” His associate’s response? “This is going to make a lot of very wealthy people.”
WE APPRENTICE CONTESTANT WHO HAS REAL SHOT AT 45
In 2007, reality star 45 kissed Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos on the mouth repeatedly, touched her breast and pressed his genitals against her. 45 called Summer a liar. She sued him for defamation. Summer’s suit now has the potential to open the records of more than a dozen suits against our Sexual-Harasser-in-Chief. How’d you like to get your hands on those records?
WE OLYMPIC SKIER LINDSEY VONN
Vonn has made her opinion of 45 clear: “I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president.” Will she go to the White House if she wins a gold medal? “Absolutely not.” Go, Lindsey, Go!
