    I don't think we had one til the 80s. Those things were a big deal back then. Had a classmate in law school back in the early 90s who was an agent and had a cell phone that he was always talking on between classes. Thing was as big as a brick, and probably as heavy. First one I'd ever seen.

    When I was a kid, there was a show that had character named Dantana? Anyways, this guy had a HUGE telephone in his car! That was a huge deal back then! This was in the late 70's (or early 80's?) I think.

    In high school, I used to dismay my mother by leaving funny answering machine outgoing messages.

    (Fake Arnold Schwarzenegger voice: "Hello! This is Ahnold. I'm not here to answer ze phone right now, but please leave a message, because... I'll be back!")

    (Fake Pee Wee Herman voice: "Hi! This is Pee Wee Herman! I'm at the movies, so leave a message! Hahahahahahaha!''

We know Don Jr. was eager to receive help from Russian government sources - and also that both Manafort and Kushner were interested enough to attend the meeting. We know Trump family maintained contact (and was on first name basis) with Agalarov family, which is not only in the inner Putin circle but apparently has enough KGB pedigree for the yonger scion to be hitched to the mighty Aliev dynasty. In Soviet times, someone like KGB Major Putin was hardly worthy to serve as a driver for Politburo member Comrade Heydar Aliev - and Emin Agalarov married his granddaughter. We know Trump had business dealings with various Russians, at times with questionable background (Felix Sater). None of this is "proof", but the smoke is very, very thick.
    Hillary Clinton approved the sale of 20% of our Uranium reserves to Russia, benefiting a group of donors to the Clinton Foundation. That's not smoke, that's fact.

    When can we expect a special prosecutor and/or grand jury to investigate that?

    No, in fact, she didn't. That mine is prohibited from importing uranium, no matter who shareholders are. And that's what we find when looking into any Hillary controversy: big, fat nothing.

    Well, the Special Prosecutor is appointed by the Attorney General, currently a guy named Sessions. You would guess that if there were any real evidence this would have already have been done.

    No homework. Sessions recused himself from this matter and it fell to Rosenstein.
