    Federal probe into House technology worker Imran Awan yields intrigue, no evidence of espionageImran Awan, a technology worker in Congress for 13 years, is the subject of a federal investigation that has become a lightning rod for some conservatives. (Bonnie Jo Mount/The Washington Post)In late September 2016, leaders in the House of Representatives met behind closed doors for briefings on a closely held investigation into a group of computer technicians working on Capitol Hill. Investigators with the Inspector General’s Office had been quietly tracking the five IT workers’ digital footprints for months. They were alarmed by what they saw....

    An expanding special counsel probe into the Trump campaign's alleged Russian ties has saddled many of President Trump's current and former associates with hefty legal fees and left them few options for footing the bill. More than a dozen people, including the president and vice president, are known to have hired attorneys to help them navigate special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and several additional probes in Congress. Some have complained about the burden of paying for their legal bills without assistance from the wealthy president whose campaign is in the crosshairs of federal investigators. "It's very expensive and nobody's called...

    The InSight project, NASA’s first mission to study the Red Planet’s deep interior, is on track for a 2018 liftoff after needing to be delayed two years due to a technical issue. Scientists hope that it will help explain the formation of rocky planets, including our own. ... InSight is expected to launch sometime in the five weeks following May 8, 2018, with a course charted for its arrival shortly after Thanksgiving. Lockheed Martin Space Systems has constructed the mission’s spacecraft — a stationary lander that will be positioned near the Martian equator — and is currently testing it at...

    This should enrage the American people to the point of revolution! Each day, that Mueller continues the façade of a Russian Interference Probe is another blow to the intelligence of the American people. Not only that he is destroying the dignity of the office of of the Presidency and making a sham out of our voting system. James Comey is the man who should be scrutinized by an investigation of the FBI’s part in the whole made-up Russian interference nightmare. We know he supported the Democrats using a firm they hired to dig up dirt on Trump to create a...

    The White House called Thursday for a thorough investigation related to the arrest of an IT staffer for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz who remained on the job and with congressional computer access for about five months after FBI began investigating him for fraud. “I do think it is something we should fully look into and there should be a thorough investigation,” said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. Mrs. Wasserman Schultz, former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, fired the staffer, Pakistan-born Imran Awan, after he was arrested Monday at Dulles Airport outside Washington trying to flee the country.

    President Trump’s tough criticism of Special Counsel Robert Mueller signals a renewed effort to challenge his investigators’ credibility over their track record of pro-Democratic political donations and other associations. There is no shortage of examples to fuel the president's case. Of the 15 attorneys currently on staff for Mueller, at least seven have donated to Democratic candidates and campaigns, including Trump's 2016 rival Hillary Clinton. The rest have not made political donations, according to federal records; and none of the attorneys on Mueller’s roster donated money to Trump.

    Congressman Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) criticized the special counsel investigation of President Trump. GWU Professor Jonathan Turley said the probe, headed by former FBI Director Robert Mueller, now includes a litigator who has been reprimanded for obstruction in past cases. He and another new member of Mueller's team reportedly also donated thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates. "This seems more like an effort to prosecute Donald Trump," Duffy said. "What the hell are we investigating?" he asked, saying that ex-FBI chief James Comey testified that there is no evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia. "Why are we going through with...

    PBS Newshour anchor Judy Woodruff posted to Twitter Monday evening that Chris Ruddy, CEO of Newsmax, told her that President Donald Trump is “”considering perhaps terminating” Robert Mueller as special counsel”.

Recent reports indicate that Mueller is looking to expand his investigation to include the decision to fire his successor as FBI director, James Comey. GQ described Mueller’s hiring for the investigation as a “Murderer’s Row of Prosecutors” and “men and women responsible for bringing down...

    Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” during his “Opening Monologue” segment, host Sean Hannity on two occasions called for the special counsel probe headed by former FBI Director Robert Mueller to be shut down. First, Hannity called into question the relationship between former FBI Director James Comey, who Hannity suggested was biased against Trump, and Mueller, which he described as a conflict of interest. “[J]ames Comey’s relationship with the special counsel Robert Mueller is a massive conflict of interest,” he said. “It’s why it is time to shut down this political witch hunt that is really aimed at stopping the...

    Republican lawmakers said Sunday that they will include President Trump’s explosive claim that the Obama administration engaged in politically driven wiretapping in the congressional probes of Russian campaign meddling. Rep. Devin Nunes, the California Republican who heads the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said the president’s allegation would be examined as part of the panel’s investigation. “One of the focus points of the House intelligence committee’s investigation is the U.S. government’s response to actions taken by Russian intelligence agents during the presidential campaign,” Mr. Nunes said. “As such, the committee will make inquiries into whether the government was conducting...

FBI agents have interviewed and re-interviewed multiple people on the foundation case, which is looking into possible pay for play interaction between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.

    The FBI obtained a warrant to search emails related to the Hillary Clinton private server probe that were discovered on ex-congressman Anthony Weiner's laptop, law enforcement officials confirmed Sunday. The warrant came two days after FBI director James Comey revealed the existence of the emails, which law-enforcement sources said were linked to Weiner's estranged wife, top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. The FBI already had a warrant to search Weiner's laptop, but that only applied to evidence of his allegedly illicit communications with an underage girl.
