March Madness!

• The Russia intrigue continues, as disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleads for immunity in exchanged for his story. Devin Nunes, chair of the House Intelligence Committee (and member of the Trump transition team), tried to prop up his best buddy in the White House by revealing a nonexistent "bombshell" about surveillance on the Trump team, but shot himself in the foot by lying to everyone about the source of the information. Not incidentally, he also completely destroyed the integrity of his committee's investigation - and himself.

• Congressman Eric Swalwell has connected the dots between the Trump campaign and Russia and put it into a nifty visual diagram on his government Web site. Thanks, Eric! Politico also did a nice job on a Trump-Russia timeline

We may have the cure for what ails you.

• Trump, who mocked President Obama for spending too much time on the links, has golfed at least 12 times since he took office. Gives a whole new meaning to the word "duffer."

• The ill-conceived Republican health care bill died before it even came to a vote. Just a little bit satisfying, considering how many times Republicans have said the ACA was in a "death spiral."

• Trump, who has called global warming a "Chinese hoax," has begun the process of reversing climate change regulations and laws. It helps that his head of the EPA has sued the agency multiple times and would like to see it disabled entirely.
