“Who could have ever guessed that Rudy Giuliani would have two henchmen named Lev and Igor?”

Perusing the mugshots of Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman –the two mutts arrested as they tried to board a one-way flight to Germany — Jimmy Kimmel can’t help but notice how innocent they (don’t) look. According to the late-night comic these alleged crooks, charged by federal authorities with making massive illegal campaign contributions, exemplify the true nature of Trump’s entourage.

Instead of “the best people,” as the president often boasts, he is surrounded by a menagerie of creeps. With the likes of Parnas and Fruman brought in by Giuliani, says Kimmel, Trump world resembles “a Russian nesting doll of the worst people.”

Click and laugh.

A group of lawyers has submitted a 15-page ethics complaint to the State Bar of Texas demanding an investigation of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for his “leading role” in the far-reaching Republican effort to keep former President Trump in power despite his reelection loss.

The complaint — filed by the 65 Project, an organization of lawyers seeking to hold attorneys accountable for lending a hand in pro-Trump efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 elections — called for an examination of Cruz’s conduct in the weeks before Election Day in 2020 and on January 6, 2021, the day of the Capitol insurrection.
