    Nikolai Glushkov, a Russian exile who was a close friend of a noted critic of President Vladimir Putin, has died from an "unexplained" cause in London, police say. The Metropolitan Police says that its counterterrorism unit is handling the case "because of associations that the man is believed to have had." Glushkov, 68, was a close friend of Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky, a prominent critic of the Kremlin who was found dead in 2013. At the time, an inquiry found he had hanged himself — but Glushkov publicly disputed the idea that his friend and former business ally would have...

    Friday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin took a deeper look into how President Obama’s administration permitted Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 election to go on unimpeded. Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, reportedly gave a “stand down” order on developing cyber-espionage countermeasures against the Russians because President Obama did not approve them. “That is the sickening irony, ladies and gentlemen,” Levin said. “That it was Obama and his people who refused to fight back against the Russians. It’s Obama and his people that turned intelligence agencies and law enforcement against the Republican nominee for president of...

    Historically, the party that occupies the White House loses seats in the midterm elections although there have been several notable exceptions to this rule. And if 2018 proves to be one of those exceptions and the Republicans gain seats in the midterms, Charlie Savage of the New York Times already has an excuse at hand: Russian meddling. Savage provided this excuse to the potential sore losers a full eight months before the midterms in his March 3 article, What if Republicans Win the Midterms?
  • Trump’s Attorneys Make Solid Case For Freeing Julian Assange in Legal Filing

    01/03/2018 6:20:37 PM PST · by MNDude · 17 replies
    President Donald Trump’s attorneys made a solid case for preemptively pardoning Julian Assange in a motion to dismiss a WikiLeaks-related lawsuit against the Trump campaign. While preemptive pardons are rare — they are not unheard of. The motion, filed on December 29, was in response to a lawsuit by two Democratic Party donors who allege that the Trump campaign and former adviser Roger Stone conspired with Russians to publish the leaked Democratic National Committee emails. The outlandish lawsuit, based largely on conspiracy theories, was orchestrated by a group called Protect Democracy — which happens to be run by former attorneys...

But Crooked Hillary, almost single-handedly killed off the integrity and credibility of the FBI The bottom line on the FBI’s dramatic Friday dump indictment of a St. Petersburg-based “troll farm” and 13 Russian nationals: on the same day the indictments were revealed ‘someone’ in the FBI began leaking the news that special counsel Robert Mueller is still investigating “possible collusion” in the Trump camp. “Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his prosecutors haven’t concluded their investigation into whether President Donald Trump or any of his associates helped Russia interfere...
  • Michael Goodwin: Russian indictments prove Trump won fair and square

    After 18 months of Russia, Russia, Russia, we finally meet a cast of real Russians. But par for the convoluted course, they were pretending to be Americans. The indictments obtained by special counsel Robert Mueller on Vladimir Putin’s attempts to create discord in the 2016 election and eventually support Donald Trump are important both for what they say and what they don’t say. They offer huge victories for Trump — and thus more defeats for Hillary Clinton — but they don’t close the books on everything about 2016. The very good news for the president is that the indictments are...

    This week, Nikolas Cruz killed 17 and wounded another 13 in an assault on the students and faculty of Marjory Stoneman High School in Parkland, Florida. By law, the school is a designated “gun free zone.” This ensured that Cruz would be able to fire at will until off-site police arrived, which they did within five minutes of being called. By that time the 19-year-old Cruz had ditched his weapon and blended in with the fleeing students. Cruz’s heinous plan was months in the making. Back on September 5, 2017 Cruz posted a YouTube boast “I’m going to be a...

According to the statement of offense, Pinedo ran a company called "Auction Essistance," which offered services meant to get around the security requirements set by...

    The Conflict Intelligence Team found the Russians "may have fought alongside pro-Russia separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine prior to joining the fight against the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) and other insurgents challenging Assad's rule in Syria." The group also found Russians killed "appeared to have joined the Wagner Group, a private paramilitary company, before traveling to fight in Syria. Last October, ISIS released a video showing two Russian-speaking men the militants claimed to have captured, and subsequent research showed the two men were likely Wagner Group members fighting in Syria." "While the total number of 'Wagner' operatives killed in...

Pho may face prison time when he's sentenced on April 6th, but prosecutors “are open to calls for a lighter sentence” given the non-malicious nature of the case. It...
  • American Spies Paid $100,000 to Russian Who Wanted to Sell Material on Trump

    After months of secret negotiations, a shadowy Russian bilked American spies out of $100,000 last year, promising to deliver stolen National Security Agency cyberweapons in a deal that he insisted would also include compromising material on President Trump, according to American and European intelligence officials. The cash, delivered in a suitcase to a Berlin hotel room in September, was intended as the first installment of a $1 million payout, according to American officials, the Russian and communications reviewed by The New York Times. The theft of the secret hacking tools had been devastating to the N.S.A., and the agency was...

They agreed that Koslow “would channel these funds” to Cooper and two of her allies on the city commission, according to the affidavit. Koslow, aware of the $500 limit on local campaign contributions, told the agents that he would use their funds and his connections to two Russian organizations to have them write checks to Cooper’s campaign.
