According to the Washington Post,

U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.

(ICYMI) Where have they gone

Where have they gone

All those with whom I used to laugh

Where have they gone

All those with whom I used to dream

Where have they gone

All those who said I was special

Where have they gone

All those who borrowed that one thing. Repeatedly.

Where have they gone

All those who cast a shadow on the front door

Where have they gone

All those who used to call

Where have they gone

Where?

In a statement he said he was not a terrorist and described the charges as “an abuse of legislation”.

He wore the scars


He wore the scars of hard work, unrelenting physical labor

He built the rails we ride on, the roads we drive on, the buildings we live in

His government sent his offspring off to some war, somewhere, for some noble goal. That’s what he was told.

He was lucky; his offspring came home

His reward for all of this was a warm home and a family

Who no longer see him, love him, laugh with him, care for him

He went to his Lord, we are told

He had mere months of freedom after years of hammers and nails

His widow will join him after she enjoys the grandchildren, the vacation, the time away

He thought he’d do those with her
