Over the weekend, before the Don McGahn story started driving fevered speculation, the Post published an article about Elliott Broidy, the venture capitalist and GOP fundraiser who is already tied up in the Cohen/Hush Money saga as well as the Russia probe. This story detailed investigations into Broidy allegedly trying to get paid to fix federal criminal investigations in the US for interests in Malaysia and China. To me though, the most notable part of the story, is that the investigation is run by the DOJ Public Integrity Section, not the Special Counsel’s Office.
