  • Mueller says team unable to 'fully' probe George Papadopoulos, Carter Page

    Special counsel Robert Mueller's report found no evidence President Trump conspired with Russia in 2016, but says investigators were unable to "fully" investigate Trump campaign foreign policy advisers George Papadopoulos and Carter Page. The report released Thursday says Page's activities during a July 2016 trip to Moscow were "not fully explained" and that investigators were "not fully able to explore" Papadopoulos's communications with a Russia-linked associate. Although Mueller's 400-plus-page report says mysteries remain about the two men, Trump aides for years have downplayed their roles, calling them peripheral players brought aboard to bolster a lagging foreign policy team.
  • Devin Nunes ups the ante: Two dozen people could be hit by criminal referral

    Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., appeared to raise exceptions for the number of people who could be the subject of a criminal referral he plans to submit to the Justice Department in the coming days that focuses on the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation. The ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee has been teasing a referral for months and previously predicted its delivery by the end of next week. During a Fox News interview Wednesday evening, Nunes walked back his prior certainty the referral would be ready by Friday due to the burgeoning challenge of ensnaring as many individuals as...
  • Russian academic linked to Flynn denies being spy, says her past contact was ‘used’ to smear him

    A Russian-born academic who was at the center of attention in 2017 for past contact with former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn told Fox News in an exclusive interview that she is not a spy for Moscow – and, to the contrary, believes she was “used” to smear Flynn. "I think there's a high chance that it was coordinated, and I believe it needs to be properly investigated,” Svetlana Lokhova told Fox News.
  • The damning proof of innocence that FBI likely withheld in Russian probe

    The Hill ^ | 3/14/2019 | john Solomon
    If President Trump declassifies evidence in the Russia investigation, Carter Page’s summer bike ride to a Virginia farm and George Papadopoulos’s hasty academic jaunt to London may emerge as linchpin proof of FBI surveillance abuses during the 2016 election. The two trips have received scant attention. But growing evidence suggests both Trump campaign advisers made exculpatory statements — at the very start of the FBI’s investigation — that undercut the Trump-Russia collusion theory peddled to agents by Democratic sources. The FBI plowed ahead anyway with an unprecedented intrusion into a presidential campaign, while keeping evidence of the two men’s innocence...

    Let's hope Elie Honig isn't exiled to the CNN equivalent of Siberia. Because on New Day this morning, Honig, a CNN legal analyst, lit into Andrew McCabe for lying to federal investigators, suggesting he should be given the same treatment as others prosecuted for doing the same. Highlights: "Whenever we hear something from McCabe, we have to keep in mind he has a serious credibility problem.""He lied three times in three separate interviewsabout whether he was a leak, or authorized theleak on the Hillary Clinton case." "Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Michael Cohen, George Papadopoulos, were all prosecuted for making false...

    One day after former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's legal team made the bombshell allegations that the FBI had pushed him not to bring a lawyer to his fateful Jan. 24, 2017 interview with agents at the White House, the federal judge overseeing Flynn's criminal case late Wednesday ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller to turn over all of its highly secret documents related to the questioning. U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan -- who overturned the 2008 conviction of former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens after government misconduct came to light -- is weighing how to sentence Flynn, who pleaded guilty to...

    Judge Sullivan, who is assigned to General Flynn’s case is demanding to see the FBI summary 302 report about the ambush Flynn interview according to a new court filing.

    James Comey made the surprise revelation in his congressional testimony on Friday that the FBI opened investigations into four Trump associates in late July 2016. It was previously known that four Trump advisers were the focus of the FBI probe, but it was not known that they were targeted at the outset of the investigation. It was previously believed that former Trump aide George Papadopoulos was the catalyst for the investigation, which was dubbed Crossfire Hurricane. The FBI opened counterintelligence investigations into four Trump campaign associates in late July 2016, earlier than previously known, former FBI Director James Comey told...

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team are facing new complications in the final stretch of their investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates during the 2016 presidential election, as targets allegedly breach agreements and balk at plea deals. On Monday, the Mueller team claimed that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort violated his plea deal by lying to the FBI and Mueller’s office on a “variety of subject matters,” amid reports the cooperation agreement was not panning out how prosecutors had hoped. Conservative author Jerome Corsi also plans to reject a potential deal with Mueller...

    While Mueller has cast a shadow over Trump for 18 months now, he has been almost entirely silent since he was brought out of retirement as a special counsel tasked with picking up the FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election, and “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump”. The word integrity seems to be almost sewn into the fabric of his pin-striped suits. “It’s why [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein brought him into this role of special counsel,” Graff said, “because he is probably the...

    Mike Cernovich is about to debut his long-awaited movie about “fake news,” a visual broadside on the hypocrisy seen often in liberal media and the clearest explanation yet of his tactics popular on conservative social media channels. In “Hoaxed,” a quick-paced two-hour documentary, he says, “All media is narratives and we are in a war of narratives.” The crowd-funded “Hoaxed” sticks it to big media like "60 Minutes" and others for playing favorites with Democrats. For example, Cernovich shows video of media figures questioning the health and mind of President Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, but ignoring the signs...

    Joseph Mifsud is a key figure in the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government Mifsud, a Maltese professor, told former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos that Russia had “thousands” of Hillary Clinton emails Mifsud emailed the FBI on Feb. 11, 2017, just after he was interviewed by investigators. He downplayed his contacts with Papadopoulos. Shortly after being interviewed by the FBI early last year, the mystery professor at the center of the Trump-Russia investigation emailed the bureau with a recap of the interview. The email, reported by The Hill, seemingly shows what Mifsud told FBI...

    Papadopoulos Wants Congress To Inspect Cash He Was Given During FBI CIA ‘Sting Operation’ George Papadopoulos wants to give Congress $10,000 in cash. But the offer, which Papadopoulos extended this week, is not a campaign contribution or a bribery attempt. Instead, the former Trump campaign aide wants lawmakers to inspect a stack of $100 bills he was given during a peculiar meeting he had in a hotel room in Israel in July 2017, just days before he was arrested by the FBI. “I’m actually trying to bring that money back somehow so that Congress can investigate it because I am...

    George Papadopoulos, the Trump campaign volunteer targeted by the Deep State and foreign spies let loose on Twitter this week and claimed he was targeted by US allies and “Obama knew!” Papadopoulos tweeted on September 13th that the Brits met with him often before the 2016 campaign – While I have never met a Russian official in my life knowingly, the British government liked to meet me quite often throughout the campaign. Including Tobias Ellwood, who was right under Boris Johnson, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.— George Papadopoulos (@GeorgePapa19) September 14, 2018 Papadopoulos notified the FBI that he thought...

    CNN is reporting that top congressional Democrats are planning to take an unexpectedly soft line on new and potentially very damning information that has emerged about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Russia probe. Why? Because Democrats understand full well that Sessions, of all people, could end up being pivotal to preventing President Trump from covering up the findings of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation. It’s a complicated and interesting situation — and it’s unclear where it’s going to end up. A few days ago, the news broke that in a recent court filing, former Trump campaign adviser...

    Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos said Sunday that he does not believe he incriminated President Trump in cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference. Papadopoulos said Sunday on ABC's "This Week" that he was "taken off guard" by the investigation because he didn't "understand the nature of what was going on." "At the time of my interview with the FBI, I think around three or four days before that, I was at the inauguration attending parties with senior level transition officials," Papadopoulos said. "I understood that there was an incipient investigation into Russian interference in...
