Flynn met with Turkey's Foreign Minister at Trump Hotel, along with.......Nunes!

Turkey' Foreign Minister MevlŁt «avuşoğlu met with designated U.S. National Security adviser Rt. Gen. Mike Flynn on Wednesday
(Jan. 18,2017) at Trump Hotel in Washington.

"Met with General Flynn, who will assume the position of National Security Advisor, and other officials at a working breakfast in Washington D.C.," «avuşoğlu tweeted.

The meeting marks a first direct reachout between the President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan administration and the incoming Donald Trump administration, other than a phone call between two leaders last November.

House Intelligence Committee Congressman Devin Nunes, a Republican heavyweight, also attended the breakfast.


A invitation letter for the breakfast, obtained by Daily Sabah, said the breakfast would be a small event for about 50-60 guests. It also said White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus might join the meeting. It was not immediately clear whether he attended.

An official at the Trump Organization, and two other fundraisers were presented as co-hosts, according to the letter.

Flynn is talking to FBI, according more than a few rumors now.

Here's how to tell if this is true

IF the witnesses for the upcoming Senate Intell. Committee include Stone ( already announced him)
and Page and etc but not Flynn, an obvious reason would be that he is already on record re: the FBI.

Sorta seemed that way when he suddenly and belatedly signed paperwork for his Turkish consulting gig.

What do you think?????

Edited to add:

Stone, Manafort, and Carter Page have all volunteered to testify in front of the House Intelligence Committee
but not Flynn.


After the first sentence of a well known book, add ....."and then the murders began"

**Please include title of the book**

My favorite so far:

We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. And then the murders began.

Did Fox news really say "the winner in all of this is Obama"

Looks like Sessions is toast

Seth has a long tweet page of how the Russia element was involved and how the primary characters all met together at teh Mayflower just before the Foreign Policy Trump gave to assure Russians of intent to lift sanctions.
and that Sessions was there...and so was Kislyak.


RNC paid intel firm for Clinton dirt, firm connected to Russian spy.!!!

As the general election was taking shape last summer, the Republican National Committee initiated a series of payments to a low-profile firm started by retired Central Intelligence Agency officers that worked closely with an ex-Russian spy.

The payments attracted attention in political and intelligence circles, largely because the Virginia-based firm, Hamilton Trading Group, had particular expertise in Russia, which was emerging as a major campaign issue at the time.

RNC officials and the president and co-founder of Hamilton Trading Group, an ex-CIA officer named Ben Wickham, insisted the payments, which eventually totaled $41,500, had nothing to do with Russia.

Instead, they initially claimed the payments were entirely for an assessment by Hamilton Trading Group of building security concerns at the RNCís Capitol Hill headquarters.

Adding to the intrigue are the firmís intelligence connections in Russia, where it was known to perform background checks and provide security services for American officials and companies.

That work was handled by a former KGB agent named Gennady Vasilenko, a Cold War adversary-turned-friend of Wickhamís co-founder, Jack Platt, a retired CIA officer who passed away in January.

If the House rejects the GOP plan, the president says, Obamacare will stay.

Trump demands Friday vote on health care plan

UPDATE: 7:42 p.m.: President Donald Trump is demanding a vote Friday in the House on the Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said. If the bill fails, Trump is prepared to move on and leave Obamacare in place, Mulvaney said.


President Donald Trump and House Freedom Caucus members failed to strike a deal on the GOP Obamacare replacement Thursday, endangering the prospects of passage and all but assuring any immediate vote on the measure would fail.

Hours later, House leaders canceled a planned Thursday night vote on the legislation, dubbed the American Health Care Act. There was no immediate word when a vote might be rescheduled. The House Republican Conference is planning to meet at 7 p.m. Thursday about how to proceed, with procedural votes expected later in the evening.

Wow.....nice to have a non-political approach.....
