The Democrats and the intel community say "the Russians hacked the DNC headquarters, Hillary's substandard server and/or campaign director Podesta" (or something) to achieve victory for Donald TrumpThe content was never denied. The House and Senate Select Committees on Intelligence are investigating alleged collusion of the Trump campaign with Russia, to no avail so far. #CIACoup Steele Dossier,  Special Counsel investigation, IG investigations.

UPDATE: As expected, after the midterm elections President Trump fired his AG Jeff Sessions and replaced him temporarily with the AG's Chief of Staff, Matt Whitaker. Whitaker is a man of opinions on the subject of Hillary Clinton and Special Counsel Mueller, reason for the loyal opposition now in charge of the House, to demand his recusal. 

According to some observers Whitaker is not legally qualified as AG. Although the President made plain in his press conference he has no plans to fire Special Council Mueller, half the world -- from Antifa activists, to the former PM of Belgium (not kidding) -- is warning the President not to fire Mueller. 

The matter of the FISA documents and their declassification is once again an issue:

Oct. 25, 2018


There may have been a second FISA warrant. We know about the secret FISA warrant on Carter Page. There's now suspicion of a second secret warrant on former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos will appear today before a congressional task force. Papadopoulos will testify about his interactions with nine people during the 2016 campaign who he now suspects may have been spies.

At least one FBI informant, Stefan Halper, contacted Papadopoulos, who has been sentenced in the special counsel probe to lying to the FBI. When former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos testifies Thursday before Congress he hopes to speak with lawmakers about his interactions with nine individuals he believes may have been sent to surveil him during and after the 2016 election. A lawyer for Papadopoulos listed the nine people in a letter sent Monday to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. Some of the names on the list have been widely discussed in the press: Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud, former Australian diplomat Alexander Downer, FBI informant Stefan Halper, and alleged Steele dossier source Sergei Millian have all popped up during the course of Russiagate. But Papadopoulos identified five other people — Azra Turk, Aziz Choukri, Charles Tawil, Terrence Dudley and Gregory Baker — whose interactions he now questions. Papadopoulos, who was sentenced to 14 days in jail on Sept. 7 as part of the special counsel’s investigation, volunteered to speak to a congressional task force investigating the FBI and Department of Justice’s investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. The 31-year-old Chicago native was a key component of the probe. (More)
