Mueller Requests Wide Ranging Documents From DOJ

Source: ABC

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating whether President Donald Trump sought to obstruct a federal inquiry into connections between his presidential campaign and Russian operatives has now directed the Justice Department to turn over a broad array of documents, ABC News has learned.

In particular, Mueller's investigators are keen to obtain emails related to the firing of FBI Director James Comey and the earlier decision of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from the entire matter, according to a source who has not seen the specific request but was told about it.

Some Democrats accused Sessions of deliberately lying to lawmakers, though Sessions has vehemently denied the charge, citing a memory lapse generated in part by the "chaos" of the campaign.

During a House hearing Wednesday, Sessions said he now remembers dismissing the adviser's proposal during the meeting last year.

How many times is USAG allowed to provide erroneous accounts of events - before he is impeached (forced to resign)?

Papadopoulos has testified he discussed issues with Trump and Sessions; which - if true - means Jeff Sessions committed perjury - thrice!

Colin Kaepernick Is GQ's 2017 Citizen of the Year

Source: GQ

Much has changed in the four years since Colin Kaepernick was last on the cover of GQ. Back then he was a rippling superhero of a quarterback on the rise. But a simple act—kneeling during the national anthem—changed everything. It cost him his job. It also transformed Colin Kaepernick into a lightning rod and a powerful symbol of activism and resistance.

Though Colin Kaepernick continues his silent protest, he agreed to collaborate with GQ on a special project for our December Men of the Year issue in an effort to, as the piece explains, "reclaim the narrative of his protest." He helped us assemble a ten-person team of his closest confidants—including rapper J.Cole, director Ava DuVernay, activist Harry Belafonte, and Women’s March co-organizer Linda Sarsour—to speak on the subjects of activism, protest, and equality, and to offer some rare insights into Colin Kaepernick himself.

Paired with the piece are inspiring images by Martin Schoeller, who photographed Kaepernick in Harlem, intending to evoke the spirit of Muhammad Ali’s anti-Vietnam War protests in the neighborhood during the late 60s.

GUY on the plane, says to 10 year old girl...
"You're reading a bible, on a plane - you know that is fiction - right? There is no heaven, he'll, intelligent design or anyone else than us, in the Universe?"

GIRL - "Let me ask you you a question"?

GUY - "Okay"

GIRL - "A deer poops pellets, a cow pies, and an elephant piles - do you know why that is"?

GUY - "Nope, I have no idea"

GIRL - "If you don't know shit - how could you possibly explain the heavens"?

A Timeline of Trump-Russia Scandal

Source: Rolling Stone

This special prosecutor's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election has delivered a guilty plea – and a trove of new information about the Trump campaign's contacts with Moscow. The new details allow us to piece together the Russiagate puzzle as never before.

On October 30th, Robert Mueller elevated a formerly little-known Trump foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos, into a key figure in the Trump-Russia scandal. The 30-year-old Papadopoulos has admitted making false statements to the FBI about his outreach to the Russian government on behalf of the Trump campaign. Papadopoulos made repeated attempts to coordinate a meeting between then candidate Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, and spoke with go-betweens about Russia's "dirt" on Hillary Clinton, including "thousands of emails."

Below, Rolling Stone has taken previously public information and woven it together with new details revealed in the "statement of the offense" from the Papadopoulos case, creating a timeline of key dates, figures and events that tie the Trump campaign to Russia. (An asterisk next to a date denotes "on or about," as described in federal documents).


March 17th
In a speech, Sessions promotes a new day with Russia. "There is no reason for the U.S. and Russia to be at this loggerheads," Sessions says. "Strategically it's not justified for either country."

Another item of note, in the Rolling Stone story, is this;

The new joke in town is that Russia leaked the disastrous DNC e-mails, which should never have been written (stupid), because Putin likes me,” then candidate Trump tweeted in July 2016. Evan Vucci/AP

May 4th*
Papadopoulos receives an email from a contact with ties to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA). "I have just talked to my colleagues from the MFA," the contact writes. "The[y] are open for cooperation." Papadopoulos forwards the email to a "High-Ranking Campaign Official" – identified by The Washington Post as Corey Lewandowski – asking, "What do you think? Is this something we want to move forward with?"

Rep: Ted Lieu Offers Reward to Trump Twitter Acct Deleter

Trump Twitter Deactivited via Exiting Employee

Source: Katie Couric reference WaPo

President Trump boasted Friday of his social media influence after his personal Twitter account was briefly deactivated by a departing company employee, raising serious questions about the security of tweets the president wields to set major policy agendas, connect with his voter base and lash out at his adversaries.

The deactivation Thursday sparked deep and troubling questions about who has access to the president's personal account, @realDonaldTrump, and the power that access holds. The deactivation also came at a time when the social network is under scrutiny for the role it played in spreading Russian propaganda during the 2016 presidential election.

Trump's account disappeared at around 6:45 p.m. ET Thursday, when visitors to the page were met with the message, Sorry, that page doesn't exist!

TRUMP's TAX PLAN - Simplified.

Donald the Great (pain in the ass) is going to take $4000 from every taxpayer and give it back in this manner; which will average $4000 for every taxpayer, in benefits.

In other words = here's 10 apples for 10 people.

Trump's pal gets 10 apples and the other 9 get the blessing of helping Trump's friend be enriched; because - you know - how trickle down works. 😝

It is unpatriotic for the 9 to complain they didn't get even a piece of the apple; because they always want government handouts and they knew what they were getting into.

Any ???
