Emails show senior Trump transition official saying Russia "has just thrown the USA election to him"

http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/02/politics/michael-flynn-russia-emails-donald-trump/index.html

A senior aide on President Donald Trump's transition team wrote in a December 29 email that Russia "has just thrown the USA election to him," according to a report published Saturday.

The New York Times obtained emails showing that then-transition adviser KT McFarland, who later became deputy national security adviser under Michael Flynn, wrote that the Obama administration's sanctions against Russia for interfering in the 2016 election would make it harder to improve relations between the two countries.
"If there is a tit-for-tat escalation Trump will have difficulty improving relations with Russia, which has just thrown USA election to him," McFarland wrote, according to the Times.

U.S. Subpoenas Icahn Over Biofuel Action While Trump Adviser

Federal investigators have issued subpoenas for information on Carl Icahn’s efforts to change biofuel policy while he served as an adviser to President Donald Trump, according to regulatory filings.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York is “seeking production of information” pertaining to Icahn’s activities regarding the Renewable Fuel Standard, according to a Form 10-Q that Icahn Enterprises LP filed on Friday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The dog whistle to his base wouldn't be any less insidious if PR weren't a territory of the US, but trump forgot that, and his supporters don't even know.

DHS to use social media to monitor immigrants

http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/352421-dhs-planning-to-collect-social-media-info-on-all-immigrants


*Snip*

The Department of Homeland Security has moved to collect social media information on all immigrants, including permanent residents and naturalized citizens.

A new rule published in the Federal Register last week calls to include "social media handles and aliases, associated identifiable information and search results" in the department's immigrant files.

BuzzFeed News first reported the new rule on Monday. It is set to go into effect on Oct. 18 after a public comment period.

trump's Arpaio pardon should raise serious alarms for the Russia investigation

http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_59a0f03be4b0d0ef9f1c1401

The larger and more overtly strategic message being conveyed by the president, however, has nothing to do with Arpaio. This abrupt decision, bereft of customary vetting and review by the Justice Department, almost certainly has everything to do with one matter alone: the ongoing investigation into alleged collusion between the president’s campaign and the Russian Government, and President Trump’s desire to allay the concerns of his erstwhile campaign associates.
