Thursday's Mini-Report, 11.1.18

Today's edition of quick hits.

Today's edition of quick hits:

* Time to sign up: "Obamacare open enrollment begins today for the roughly 11 million Americans who buy individual coverage through or their state exchange. In most states, open enrollment for 2019 Affordable Care Act (ACA) coverage runs through Dec. 15."

* The fact that they're "like-minded" is precisely the problem: "White House national security adviser John Bolton on Thursday praised Jair Bolsonaro, the bombastic, far-right nationalist who triumphed in Brazil's presidential election over the weekend, calling him a 'like-minded' partner whose ascent should be seen as a welcome development in the region."

* A good question: "Roger Stone Sold Himself to Trump's Campaign as a WikiLeaks Pipeline. Was He?"

* In related news: "The U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee is pursuing a wide-ranging examination of former White House adviser Steve Bannon's activities during the 2016 presidential campaign, three sources familiar with the inquiry told Reuters."

* A case worth watching: "President Trump has agreed to produce portions of his calendar from 2007 and 2008 as part of discovery in a defamation lawsuit brought by former "Apprentice" contestant Summer Zervos, according to a proposed court order signed by attorneys for all parties."

* Really? "Carter Page, the former low-tier Trump campaign foreign-policy adviser who has since found himself at the center of multiple investigations into potential ties between Team Trump and Russian officials, has landed a new gig. According to a document reviewed by The Daily Beast and one of his new colleagues, Page is now set to host a talk show on One America News Network, a conservative channel that has attempted to position itself quixotically as a Fox News competitor."

* A heartening response to a disheartening crime: "Hundreds of books have been donated to the northwest Iowa library where a man checked out -- and then burned -- several LGBTQ children's books weeks ago."
