A. Might as well get this out of the way. Late last night, the Washington Post’s pair of Gregs, Miller and Jaffe, reported that President Trump revealed highly classified information about ISIS to Russian officials. This has since been confirmed by the NY Times, WSJ, Reuters, CNN, and those crazy kids at Buzzfeed. Washington Post

Mix Master McMaster clarified that Trump did not disclose the “sources or methods” used to obtain this classified info, because Trump was not told those things, obviously. NY Times

D. Now let’s get onto … but will this revelation affect other nations? It seems as though other nations are not stoked on this revelation. Buzzfeed

C. In what is a somewhat terrifying approach to the First Amendment, the Justice Department prosecuted three protestors for laughing at Jeff Sessions during the Attorney General’s Senate confirmation hearing. A jury just convicted the protestors for breaking Senate rules. Vanity Fair

D. Once moribund, now somehow vital, Trumpcare continues its reanimation after an $8 billion promise to high-risk pools swung a few key House Republicans’ support for the bill. NY Times

E. FBI Director James Comey testified at a Senate Judiciary Committee oversight hearing, offering the first public explanation of why he notified Congress about new emails related to the Clinton investigation two weeks before the 2016 election. NY Times
