AUDIOBOOK READING OF THE DAY. Hillary Clinton reads the section of the Mueller Report where Donald Trump says ‘I’m f**ked.’
INFRASTRUCTURE. Flint, Michigan out of luck in Trump’s infrastructure plan: “There is absolutely no appetite on the part of Trump to do water treatment for place like Flint, because you don’t put your name on a sewage system.”
BUTTIGIEG. Challenging the religious right on their own turf: ‘Mr. Buttigieg’s words suggest that he will spend little effort trying to entice any of the president’s most loyal religious supporters. But by pushing the discussion of homosexuality and marriage toward morality and the Bible, he is opening a door to voters of faith who are turned off by the dominance of the Republican Party’s far right but are not yet convinced they could vote for a Democrat.
LIS SMITH. The woman behind the Pete Buttigieg frenzy: ‘Lis Smith bursts through the doors of a marbled hotel bar in Brooklyn wearing oversized Anna Wintour sunglasses, a faux-fur lined coat and impossibly thin and tall high heels. She’s on her phone talking to another Buttigieg aide. She puts the word f**k through every part of speech the word can be bent into: noun, pronoun, gerund, verb, term of endearment, sobriquet, epithet, honorific.’
SORRY, VANDER PLAATS. Buttigieg, Booker, and Beto have all said no to your Iowa evangelical party. “We keep an open mind to the invitations that we receive,” Buttigieg press secretary Chris Meagher said. “We will be declining this invitation.”
MY THREE SONS. Matt Bomer shares family photo.
AND THE TONY GOES TO….

DIMITRI SIMES. Mueller Report linked Jared Kushner to pro-Kremlin Russian: ‘Kushner and Simes met at the lunch and began communicating, including in a meeting at Kushner’s office later that month. Although the Trump campaign never identified Simes as an adviser, he provided counsel to the Trump team, particularly with regard to Russia. In June 2016, Mueller found, he sent a memo to then-Senator Jeff Sessions, who headed up Trump’s foreign policy team, offering several policy recommendations, including “a new beginning with Moscow,” and in August he would send Kushner himself a “Russia policy memo.”
