Re: “Wednesday's open line and video report

It's a neighborly day in the beauty woods.…

WASHINGTON As President Trumps voter integrity commission looks under rocks for possible voter malfeasance, its members might want to examine a presidential nominee awaiting confirmation by the Senate Finance Committee.

Documents indicate that Jeffrey Gerrish, the presidents pick to be a deputy United States Trade Representative, moved from Virginia to Maryland last year, but opted in November to vote in the more competitive state of Virginia than his bright blue new home.

The Senate Finance Committee, which has been considering Mr. Gerrishs nomination, was briefed on the matter on Tuesday, including the fact that Mr. Gerrish had almost certainly voted illegally, according to three Democratic congressional aides familiar with the briefing. Public records back up that notion.

Given Mr. Trumps intense focus on alleged widespread voter fraud in last years election the president has claimed that millions of people voted illegally, without evidence Democrats are likely to pounce on the misstep to try to sink Mr. Gerrishs nomination.

WASHINGTON Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, has asked the White House for documents about some of President Trumps most scrutinized actions since taking office, including the firing of his national security adviser and F.B.I. director, according to White House officials.

Mr. Mueller is also interested in an Oval Office meeting Mr. Trump had with Russian officials in which he said the dismissal of the F.B.I. director had relieved great pressure on him.

Re: “The long shadow of Paula Jones looms over Donald Trump

I don't know if this has been posted, but............ hey, at least English is Zeros first language. If Melanie can sue, then Zeros surely has a better case........…

The billboards emblazoned with the face of first lady Melania Trump rose up in the capital of Croatia last Friday, offering a thought to passing drivers:

Just imagine how far you can go with a little bit of English

The Slovenian-born former model was chosen because she was the most recognized emigrant to the U.S. from this region, spokeswoman Ivis Buric told CNBC.

But Trumps image was used without permission. On Tuesday, the signs came down under the threat of a lawsuit by the first ladys lawyers, according to the Associated Press.
