As long as Ellis has access to the classified intelligence he can filter to Trump after he leaves office, I don't think Trump cares what they do with Ellis inside.

It appears that civil service protection doesn't guarantee the status of his position  - at least one story I read implies they can bury him somewhere the work would be inconsequential. But solid fact at that detail level appears to be deeper than our modern day journalistic eager beavers dig.

Well, obviously, this is not meant to be taken literally—it refers to any manufacturers of dairy products.

I know what I would love to happen to Vlad. It involves a lamppost.

so any guess as to why Putin hasn't locked down the Russian Internet the way China has? Seems like such an obvious long term move for him.

Because the Russian internet is a money making operation for so many of his mafia friends.

Fair point, but why not do both? They either aren't smart enough or don't care? I guess maybe another thing is that I get the impression  that Putin really doesn't care about ideology, he only cares about his own power, so unlike the Chinese, he doesn't care about ideas, only the people that challenge him, and he has all the tools he need to deal with them. Ruling legitimacy is understood and accepted as pure power in Russia. OTOH, the Chinese leadership is deathly afraid of losing their governing legitimacy and so must (or feels they must) play thought police.

I concur with the general sentiment here. 

Navalny is an odd duck.  My impression of him is that he's a weird choice for George Washington. He seems more Bill Gates-like than that.   But as Gunnery Sargent Hartman said in Full Metal Jacket "he's silly and he's ignorant, but he's got guts and guts is enough"

I'm not sure if this article, or the contents of it, have been mentioned here. I thought they might be interesting. I have no idea how reliable the source is - it's entirely possible that this is just fantasy.

‘The perfect target’: Russia cultivated Trump as asset for 40 years – ex-KGB spy

The KGB ‘played the game as if they were immensely impressed by his personality’, Yuri Shvets, a key source for a new book, tells the Guardian

Donald Trump was cultivated as a Russian asset over 40 years and proved so willing to parrot anti-western propaganda that there were celebrations in Moscow, a former KGB spy has told the Guardian.
