It’s Thursday.

In 6 day’s Special Counsel Robert Mueller is scheduled to testify before two House Committees regarding the Russian Election Interference Investigation Report.

On Wednesday as the News Blender reported President Trump held a rally, originally billed as a “counter” to Mueller’s testimony, which was scheduled to happen on Wednesday, but was postponed to allow more time for the Judiciary Committee to ask Mueller questions.

The rally itself was it’s typical standard rally, until the chants of “lock her up,” were replaced with chants of “send her back,” a reference to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN), Somalian heritage.

The chants followed a week of the President and Republicans attempting to dismiss racist tweets he sent on Sunday, where he told four sitting Congresswomen that if they did not like America so much they could “go back,” to where they came from.

On Wednesday night President Trump upped his attack of Omar, leading to the chants of “send her back,” the President made no attempt to stop the chants.

Thursday lawmakers have been asked to weigh-in on the racist chants from the rally.

Also happening on Thursday, Jeffrey Epstein, the politically connected financier is back in court, where U.S. District Judge Richard Berman will rule on whether or not Epstein’s bail will be denied.

The bail hearing which began Monday, with the Government explaining to the court of the existence of a fake passport, the foreign passport contained Epstein’s photo, but was issued under a different name, which they conclude makes Epstein a flight risk.

As the News Blender reported last week, Epstein was arrested and charged with sex trafficking of minors.

As Snip Bytes reported on Wednesday, Epstein’s lawyers sent a memo to the Judge to explain that the Austrian passport that has expired, was obtained by Epstein in the 80’s only for his protection while traveling in the Middle East.

On Thursday ahead of the hearing Courthouse News is reporting that Epstein’s attorney’s have explained that the passport was given to Epstein by a friend.

More to watch for on this Thursday, at 11 a.m. eastern time, the Government has been ordered to make the redacted portions of the one-time lawyer for President Trump, Michael Cohen’s search warrants application public.

This as the News Blender reported on Wednesday order comes as the Government has said they are done investigating the campaign finance violation that Cohen in part is currently serving three years in prison for.

As the News Blender reported Thursday’s document drop, follows the March public release of the redacted Cohen search warrant application.

The President has currently started to tweet, so far he has issued 4.

Authors note: As the President did not start tweeting until eleven minutes ago, I will publish this thread without context to his current tweets, but will add that content as quickly as I’m able. This post will be updated.

This is an Open Thread.
