CHANGE OF HEART. Lady G now wants to hear from Robert Mueller. “Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee, said Sunday that he will grant a request by Democrats to have former special counsel Robert Mueller testify about his investigation before the committee.Graham’s comments follow an op-ed by Mueller published Saturday in The Washington Post, in which the former special counsel defended his office’s prosecution of Roger Stone and wrote that he is still a convicted felon and ‘rightly so’ in light of President Donald Trump’s commutation of Stone.”
NOTHING LEFT TO SAY OF THE DAY. Donald Trump Jr. on his father’s hideous poll numbers. “When you have the media onslaught, where media has just totally abdicated their position to objectively look at both sides, they’re not looking into any of Biden’s past, they’re not looking into any of his history, they’re not looking into his family’s graft. They’re not looking into how insanely soft he’s been on China.”

Daughter of Nelson and Winnie Mandela dies at 59: “Zindzi will not only be remembered as a daughter of our struggle heroes, Tata Nelson and Mama Winnie Mandela, but as a struggle heroine in her own right.

TRAPPING THE LEAKERS.
