CNN exclusive: Grand jury subpoenas issued in FBI's Russia investigation

Washington (CNN)Federal prosecutors have issued grand jury subpoenas to associates of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn seeking business records, as part of the ongoing probe of Russian meddling in last year's election, according to people familiar with the matter. CNN learned of the subpoenas hours before President Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey.

The subpoenas represent the first sign of a significant escalation of activity in the FBI's broader investigation begun last July into possible ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia.

The subpoenas issued in recent weeks by the US Attorney's Office in Alexandria, Virginia, were received by associates who worked with Flynn on contracts after he was forced out as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014, according to the people familiar with the investigation.

Robert Kelner, an attorney for Flynn, declined to comment. The US Attorney's Office in Alexandria, the Justice Department and the FBI also declined to comment.

My call to Ted Poe's office

On February 9 I went to Ted Poe's website and signed up for his "Telephone Townhall" and had not heard anything so today I called and was told he had one last week. I asked why I was not contacted and told they didn't know. I asked if it had anything to do with the fact that I voted in the Democratic Primary. She said know and she wasn't sure how it was decided who got notified. I told her that it seemed like he is trying to avoid his constituents when he has these Telephone Town Hall because he can only have so many on a phone call and with an in person town hall people can come even if it has to be moved outside or there had to be overflow. It seems like our Texas Republican Congressmen are avoiding in person meetings by not having town halls in their districts.


Am I right to feel like congressmen having "Telephone Town Halls" are a way for them to weasel out of facing their constituents?

Now I am starting to worry about mi esposo

My husband is from Honduras. He has Temporary Protected Status (TPS - has a Texas State ID , a SS card and a work permit) - for the last 20 years. Because he was deported a few years before he applied for and got TPS (caught in Harlingen, Texas and voluntarily agreed to be returned, no criminal record, except a Public Intoxication about 10 years ago), he is not eligible to have his status adjusted to permanent resident. Additionally, he works on a crew with 2 undocumented aliens from Mexico doing construction. Feeling very worried about how long before I might get a call from him saying that he's either in detention or that he is stuck somewhere because Juan and Roberto were picked up and the truck was impounded and I need to come pick him up.

Sick and tired of my dishonest landlord.

I am sick and tired of dealing with my dishonest landlord. Today she put a notice on my door dated 12/1/16 saying that my lease expires 12/31/16 and that if I want to stay the rent for 1/1/17 (which I have already paid.) is going to go up $50 if I sign a new lease and $125 if I go month to month. Since she lied about the date of the notice it looks like I didn't sign a new lease and shorted them on the rent $125. I am not even sure if the lease actually expired because the last lease I signed was in March or April but since I was month to month for a couple of months she might have made the date to end 12/31/16 - unfortunately I can't find the lease and am having to go through all my paperwork and nooks and crannies in the house to find it since II can't be sure she didn't change the end date on her copy.

Any suggestions on what I should do?

Not all of Trump's supporters are deplorable...

some of them are greedy bastards and some of them are stupid and there is a little bit of overlap.

30 years?

Trump is always saying that Hillary has been in Washington 30 years and hasn't gotten anything done. Where does he get 30 years?

She became First Lady in 1993. That's 23 years ago for 8 years. Not only that the First Lady doesn't really have any power to change anything.

Then she went into the Senate and the Democrats were only in charge during the 110th Congress - that's 2 years.

Then she was Secretary of State for 4 years.

Where does Donald Trump get that she's been in Washington 30 years and hasn't changed anything?

I just read the latest Hillary conspiracy..

I'm not even going to link to it because I think it's a bunch of crap...

Apparently Roger Stone is saying that Hillary somehow murdered JFK Jr. so she could be Senator. What a load!

Did CNN dump Jeffrey Lord?

I haven't seen him on CNN lately. Or Katrina Pierson either for that matter. Did CNN dump them?

Question about political ads on CNN

I asked this question before but no one gave an answer.

I'm wondering if ads we see on CNN are national ads or are they ads run by the Cable Company in the local area? Does anyone know the answer?
