And now the judge is off the bench and we're in recess until tomorrow (no discussion of what the lawyers talked about at the bench). Stay tuned for a dispatch from the first day of Roger Stone's trial. It was eventful!

The govt does not expect to finish with the former FBI case agent today, AUSA Jonathan Kravis estimated needing three hours for her testimony and she's only been up for about an hour

The jury sees a 10/2/16 message that Jerome Corsi sent Stone saying, "word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps ... Impact planned to be very damaging." The next day is when Stone sends the email to Manafort with subject line "I have an idea" and body "To save Trump's ass"
