    WAPO ^ | 1/20/2018 | By Ellen Nakashima, Devlin Barrett
    A document described by House Republicans as a top-secret memo about surveillance “abuse” contains talking points focused on discrediting Fusion GPS, the firm that hired a British ex-spy to compile intelligence reports about alleged connections between President Trump’s associates and the Kremlin, according to people who have read it. It suggests that the former spy, Christopher Steele, lied to FBI agents who interviewed him during their probe of the 2016 election and that this purported lie was included in a successful application for a federal court order to conduct electronic surveillance on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, said these individuals,...

    Back around Thanksgiving time, we looked at some groundbreaking reporting from the Washington Free Beacon where they exposed some less than media-neutral activities by one member of the press. Janell Ross, a political reporter for the Washington Post, was found to have participated in a highly secretive, big dollar fundraising and strategy conference for the Democrats. To be clear, Ross was not there reporting on the conference as part of her job. She wrote no articles about it and the WaPo said they didn’t even know that she had gone. She was a participant in the event, even sitting in...

    The Washington Post has put one of its reporters on leave after she attended a private gathering of liberal donors and Democratic lawmakers in November, according to a Thursday CNN report. Janell Ross, a reporter on the Post's national desk, faced scrutiny last year after it was revealed that she participated in the private meeting attended by prominent Democratic figures, including billionaire financier and political donor George Soros. According to CNN, Ross is unlikely to return to the Post. The event in question was held in California in November and hosted by Democracy Alliance, a progressive donor network. During that...

    Newsbusters ^ | January 8, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    Even many reporters from liberal publications are questioning the veracity of Michael Wolff's book of gossip, Fire and Fury. The latest such person who reveals just how laughable the vetting process of Wolff's book was is Mark Berman, a reporter at the Washington Post. Wolff placed Berman among others attending a breakfast at the Four Seasons restaurant with Ivanka Trump. It turns out that Berman was most definitely not there and he had a very good reason for not attending as he revealed to anchor Fredricka Whitfield on CNN Newsroom on Saturday.
  • ‘Yesterday morning, he was key. Today, I’m not sure’: Bannon’s allies start to abandon him

    Former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon’s hopes of leading a revolt in the Republican Party this year suffered a severe blow Thursday as his allies rebuked and abandoned him following a nasty public break with President Trump. Candidates who once embraced Bannon distanced themselves from his efforts, groups aligned with his views sought separation, and his most important financial backer, the billionaire Mercer family, which has championed him for years, announced that it was severing ties. Even his position as chairman of Breitbart News, a website he has referred to as one of his most effective “weapons,” was...

    Rep. Devin Nunes, once sidelined by an ethics inquiry from leading the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia probe, is reasserting the full authority of his position as chairman just as the GOP appears poised to challenge special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation of possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. The California Republican was cleared in December of allegations he improperly disclosed classified information while accusing the Obama administration of exposing the identities of Trump affiliates on surveillance reports. Since clearing his name, Nunes has stepped up his attacks on Mueller’s team and the law enforcement agencies around...

    Spoke to a person today with knowledge of the WaPo authors: Devlin Barrett and Josh Dorsey, who said they were inserting this sentence today without any sourcing, entirely made up, as a poke in the eye to President Trump. They were noted "laughing about the plan": “People with knowledge of the investigation said it could last at least another year and members of Mueller’s team have told others they expect to be working through much of 2018, at the minimum.” @NatashaBertrand

    People familiar with the matter said that, although Page’s message may appear to suggest that she and Strzok used a separate communications channel for discussing the Clinton case, the point of her text was to advise Strzok how to explain to his wife why the two of them had been texting each other. Page and Strzok used their work on the Clinton case as a cover story for the affair, these people said, adding that there was not a separate set of phones for untraceable discussions of the Clinton case. The text had nothing to do with the Clinton investigation,...

But Bloomberg is reporting that Jared Kushner is who ordered Flynn to contact Russia. Jared, who… It appears Kushner’s been — I don’t know — not as visible lately in the Trump administration apparatus. But again, there’s nothing unusual about the incoming national security adviser during the transition talking to representatives of foreign governments!

    In an exclusive report, One America News says Moore’s accusers have ties to drug dealers and the Washington Post. The accuser, retired Alabama police officer Faye Gray, claims she was responsible for keeping an eye on Moore at the Gadsden Mall because he would make unwanted sexual advancements on young women. OAN says its “own research revealed no truth behind the claims against Moore at the mall.” Gray’s brother, Jimmy Wright, was arrested for distributing controlled substances in 1981. The prosecutor for the case was none other than Roy Moore. OAN reports Moore made another enemy after ruling against convicted...

    In teaser footage tweeted Monday by Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, Washington Post reporter Aaron Davis attempts to ambush the group’s imminent video release on the paper. “The @washingtonpost attempts to ambush @Project_Veritas anticipating an imminent video release…,” tweeted O’Keefe. The footage shows Davis following O’Keefe at an undisclosed location. At the start of the clip, Davis appears to be asking O’Keefe about what the group is filming. O’Keefe notes Davis is using the same “techniques,” as Project Veritas and asks if the reporter has been inspired by the guerrilla journalism organization.

    Washington Post reporter Janelle Ross sat on a panel at a secret gathering of Democrats where she offered strategic advice, according to a report by the Washington Free Beacon. Left-wing billionaire George Soros was also in attendance. Ross presents herself and is presented by the Post as an objective journalist. She primarily covers politics and race, and much of her focus is on the Trump administration. Nevertheless, Ross’s Twitter feed is that of a left-wing activist, and back in 2015, with no evidence, Ross smeared then-presidential candidate Jeb Bush in such a sleazy way, even MSNBC felt the need to...
