    She is very much in need of someone to tell her, “You shouldn’t do that.” Like, pretty much every time she talks or tweets.

    As a complete aside from impeachment talk, got my stimulus payment yesterday in the form of a debit card. The packaging looked odd and it was from a smaller institution in the Midwest, so I took it to my bank this morning to verify it. They said it was real, so I activated it and had my bank deposit the funds in my account, as I had planned all along.

    If half the shit about Trump is true, there is no way he is getting full reports or has been since he set foot in office.

    I ask again: Has anybody seen Wilbur Ross lately?

    The U.S. Census Bureau has apparently abandoned its effort to compile tallies of undocumented immigrants, effectively ending President Trump’s quest to exclude them from congressional apportionment, according to a letter posted on its website Wednesday afternoon.

    The statement came a day after the Commerce Department’s Office of Inspector General sent a letter outlining reports from whistleblowers who said Trump appointees in the bureau have been making a last-ditch push to produce the tallies before the president leaves office next week.

    The letter, from Inspector General Peggy E. Gustafson to Census Bureau Director Steven Dillingham, said career employees at the bureau had told her they were under “significant pressure” from two Trump appointees to produce a report by Friday related to the president’s effort to remove undocumented immigrants from state population counts, even though staffers there said the data was not ready.

    Bureau staffers said Dillingham had categorized the report as the bureau’s “top priority,” regardless of the data’s accuracy, the letter said, adding: “OIG is also aware that you inquired into a financial reward for speed on this directive.”

    One senior bureau employee had gone as far as to say that what staffers were being asked to do was “statistically indefensible,” according to the letter, which gave Dillingham until Thursday to respond and warned that OIG might interview him under oath.

    The bureau posted a reply from Dillingham on Wednesday afternoon in which he denied setting a deadline for the data and said that “upon learning of these concerns” on Tuesday, he told bureau officials that “those involved should ‘stand down’ and discontinue their data reviews.”
