As pundits try to update their timeline for the 2016 Russia hacking scandal based on new emails and information from Roger Stone associate and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi, they are missing a key piece of the puzzle.

Background: This week, Corsi blew apart plea arrangements with the Mueller investigation, and now he publicly denies being an intermediary between Stone (a would-be proxy for the Trump campaign) and WikiLeaks or having any advance knowledge of the site's leak schedule.

2 Democratic groups team up for state legislature races

The Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee are teaming up in the battle for state legislature seats across the country — with the DNC set to invest an additional $500,000 in 11 state parties.

Why it matters: Democrats lost around 1,000 state legislative seats under Barack Obama. Control of state chambers grants control over map redistricting, which is currently favorable to Republicans. And this last-minute investment adds to the collective $35 million both groups have already put into the 2018 cycle.
