    I think we can all agree she's the real victim here.

      I find the focus on Conway a bit over the top.

      She is a pollster who did a fairly good job of moderating Trump's message in the latter months of the campaign in order to broaden his support in certain important segments of the electorate. It is fairly clear from the election outcome that she did a good job of that and as a result has built up some trust with Trump.

      She doesn't seem to have any major input on actual policy and probably has a status which is beyond her capacity (Peter principle). Apart from the 'alternative facts' fiasco (which could just as easily be chalked up to an under pressure malpropism) she really doesn't have a strong association with any of the messier aspects of the administration's approach.

      In the task of breaking up the coalition of support for Trump I think she is a poor target as the average reasonable soft Trump voter probably likes her and feels that she is being unfairly vilified at the moment.

      Note to Lawrence: This doesn't mean I see unfair or unbalanced media treatment of her, just over the top focus of the twitterati/commentariat.

        Hmm, that nearly makes me want to devise a "Which Wizard of Oz character are you?" quiz and send it to the White House. Initial thoughts -
        Trump - I'm torn between the Scarecrow (for obvious reasons) and Oz the Great and Powerful
        Spicer - The Gate Keeper (or possibly Toto? some kind of lapdog, anyway ...)
        Bannon - Wicked Witch of the West. Quick, someone throw water on him.
        Tis but a scratch.

              Mental stuff altogether. He loves his early morning trump dump of tweets. If true and done to further democratic election he'll have plenty of ammo. If false I hope Obama takes him to court. His zealots will believe it either way

                    Great idea, or start a Trump Fact Hunt thread?

                          More possible Trump links to Russia

                          Another Russian...# 8...just died.


                          Alex Oronov, organizer of Russia-Ukraine blackmail plan sent to Donald Trump, dies suspiciously

                          Yet another key figure in the Trump-Russia scandal has suddenly dropped dead. A meeting was organized between Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen, Russian mafia figure Felix Sater, and Ukrainian traitor Andrii Artemenko. They crafted a Kremlin-backed plan which involved Trump using Russian blackmail to oust the president of the Ukraine. That plan was delivered to Michael Flynn’s just before he resigned. The meeting was organized by Alex Oronov – and now he’s dead.

                          Alex Oronov was the father in law of Michael Cohen’s brother, making them extended family.
                          Oronov did business in the Ukraine and was connected to Artemenko. It was Artemenko who angrily announced today in an extended Russian-language rant on his Facebook page that Oronov has died. And while he doesn’t say specifically how Oronov died, he directly blames the New York Times article which first exposed the secret plan for causing his death. In other words, he’s vaguely suggesting that Oronov was murdered (perhaps by Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin) as a result of having been publicly exposed.

                          Talking Points Memo has more details on the death of Alex Oronov, who died two days ago. This makes him at least the fourth Trump-Russia conspirator to die during the scandal. In all, seven prominent Russian operatives have died since the scandal began. Palmer Report has been documenting a running list.

                          Sergei Krivov died at the Russian consulate in New York on election day with his skull bashed in. Oleg Erovinkin, a former KGB agent who contributed intel to the Trump-Russia dossier, was found dead in the back of a car. Sergei Mikhailov, another Russian intel agent, was dragged out of a meeting with a bag on his head.
