Trump Team: Top Adviser Talked With Russian Ambassador Before U.S. Hacking Response

Then there were the confirmation hearings for Trump's picks for national-security positions. All expressed a harder line toward Russia and its leader than Trump has.


And finally there were two totally bizarre occurrences on Capitol Hill. Just as the man who hopes to become CIA chief was testifying and a senator was in the middle of asking him about Russian interference, the power went out in the building, cutting the feed to C-SPAN, which was televising the hearing.

And, on the same day, as a congresswoman was making a speech on the House floor, again about Russia, the C-SPAN live stream online switched to a feed of RT.

"This afternoon the online feed for C-SPAN was briefly interrupted by RT programming," a C-SPAN spokesman said in a statement to NPR's Susan Davis. "We are currently investigating and troubleshooting this occurrence. As RT is one of the networks we regularly monitor, we are operating under the assumption that it was an internal routing issue. If that changes we will certainly let you know."

 Well SNAP!  Going back to bed now...  J/K. Good morning, Sunshine.  I hope the Lord has offered upon you many blessings this fine winter morning, and that you are full of smiles throughout the day, thinking good thoughts.  (Your donut, however, is another story; it met with a tragic ending.  Sorry.)
