Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Saturday, February 3.

    Behind the Russia-Trump scandal, there is Gazprom.

    It’s all about the sanctions.

    I am wondering what proportion of the American people will buy the ridiculous hype about the Memo — hype still coming out from Trump and Hannity — and what proportion will recognize what a dud at all levels that memo is.

    To know it’s a dud, one has to take into consideration how it simply makes no decent case for anything. But to buy the hype, all one has to do is be swept up by the rhetoric and combative posturing of the leaders, while paying no attention to any evidence.

    Are there independents out there that pay enough attention to absorb that Nunes and Ryan and Trump have failed to deliver (and acted scandalously)? Are there Republicans who can recognize that their leaders are feeding them bullsh*t?
