The infamous shooting took place thirteen years ago, and Officer Kenneth Boss, still on the force, has been trying to win back the right to carry a gun ever since. “It was unclear why [Commissioner Ray] Kelly suddenly changed his mind,” the Postreports.
You know things are wrapping up with Peter Carr issues a statement
Rare statement from special counsel spox Peter Carr: “The Special Counsel will be concluding his service in the coming days. A small number of staff will remain to assist in closing the operations of the office for a period of time.”
On a more serious note, if the report is as much a dud (from a collusion-maximalist perspective) as people seem to think, this seems ideal as timing could get for the Dems, right? Nestled after midterms but before the slate of issues has been fully solidified in their primary

The gap between the 3-month and 10-year yields vanished on Friday as a surge of buying pushed long-end rates sharply lower. Inversion is widely considered a reliable harbinger of recession in the U.S. The 10-year slipped to as low as 2.439 percent.
U.S. central bank policy makers on Wednesday lowered both their growth projections and their interest rate outlook, with the majority of officials now envisaging no hikes this year. That’s down from a median call of two at their December meeting.
