And never forget that Russia was into places like Wisconsin @ the county level


GREEN BAY - County websites of the Democratic Party in the area have been under attack, at least one apparently by Russian hackers, an officer of the party says.

What appears to have been Russian hackers compromised the website of the 8th Congressional District Democratic Party as well as the sites of seven county Democratic party organizations, said Mary Ginnebaugh, who chairs the congressional district as well as the Brown County Democratic parties.

Russian hackers have been accused on the national level with interfering with the U.S. presidential election by getting into the Democratic National Committee’s website as well as that of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Washington.

While no one can prove beyond doubt that Russians also were involved in the local hack job, two hackers left “calling cards” with Russian email addresses on the local websites in an apparent gesture of contempt or braggadocio, Ginnebaugh said. Green Bay police were notified and have forwarded information to the FBI, she said.

And don’t forget: There were at least 75 contacts, including 22 meetings, throughout the election and transition, between Trump associates and individuals linked to the Russian government. The president and his associates have also lied about every single one.

Paris "Spiderman" got a job with the Paris Fire Dept.


A Mali immigrant who scaled a Paris apartment building to save a child dangling from a balcony will be awarded for his bravery with papers to legalise his stay and a job as a firefighter.

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday that 22-year-old Mamoudou Gassama will be awarded for his “exceptional act” with legal papers, citizenship if he wants it and a job with the fire service.

"Bravo," Mr Macron said to Mr Gassama during a one-on-one meeting in a gilded room of the presidential Elysee Palace that ended with the awarding of a medal from the prefecture for "courage and devotion".

James Clapper, Russia swung the election to Trump


Clapper tells Maddow the president is illegitimate: Trump would not be president if not for Russia

James Clapper tells Rachel Maddow the president is illegitimate: ‘Trump would not be president if not for’ Russia


“Now that he is out of government service and a private citizen, James Clapper is ready to say what he really thinks on that front and what he saw happen,” she said.

While quoting his book directly, Maddow broke down the Russian investigation into the presidential election.

Clapper says he has “no doubt” that Russia swung the elections.


“He served as director of national intelligence for 6 1/2 years, including for the duration of the Russian attack on the 2016 election. He says that Donald Trump would not be president if not for that attack,” Maddow said.




"Clapper became Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in November 1991 under George H. W. Bush."


Rosenstein is Playing Trump Because He Knows How This Will End: Tuesday's Good News

His only defense is the defense of the truly and wholly f-ed “I was set up. The cops are the crooks!


Did you notice trump has been completely losing his mind, freaking out over twitter, and just generally panicking? I am guessing you did.


Roger Stone is going to be indicted (and likely soon). All the dirty deeds done with Michael Cohen are going to come out. More illegal activities involving Jr. came to light.

And that is above and beyond all the damning info there is already re: Russia/Trump team conspiracy. There were 75+ CONTACTS WITH RUSSIA-LINKED OPERATIVES that we know about. And there is already a great deal of evidence of conspiracy.

It is no wonder he is completely losing his mind about this investigation. It is not going to end well for him.


His only defense is the defense of the truly and wholly f-ed “I was set up. The cops are the crooks!” And he is using that defense.

Mueller probing Israeli businessman connected to UAE

Source: The Hill


Special counsel Robert Mueller is probing Israeli businessman Joel Zamel after it was revealed he met with Donald Trump Jr. prior to the 2016 presidential election, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The Journal reviewed a subpoena regarding Zamel's work, including his crowdsourced analysis firm known as Wikistrat and a private intelligence firm known as the Psy Group.


The Psy Group reportedly conducts private intelligence work and is a competitor of Israeli intelligence firm Black Cube, which is linked to filmmaker Harvey Weinstein who reportedly used the firm to block investigations into his alleged sexual abuses.


The group also touted its "strong operating capabilities within the ‘Deep Web’ and Darknet (often referred to as the ‘Dark Side’ of the Internet),” the Journal reported.

Holy Shit .... I just watched 3 minutes* of Fox News w/Roger Kimball of the New Criterion

Did you know that Tom Wolfe really was a person that would have supported Fox News
and he was against liberal memes? I have never seen Mr. Kimball before but he could
not have been more wrong about Tom Wolfe because Mr. Wolfe was journalist @ his core
and journalism and Fox News are not anywhere near the same thing.

I really worry about people who watch Fox News and do not know that they are being
lied to 24/7.

* 3 minutes was my limit.

Trump Jr. told investigators he can't recall if he discussed Russian meeting with his father

Trump Jr. told investigators he can't recall if he discussed Russian meeting with his father

Source: USA Today

WASHINGTON -- After setting up a meeting with Russian agents to discuss what he thought would be incriminating information on Hillary Clinton in June 2016, Donald Trump Jr. made an 11-minute phone call to a blocked phone number, according to a transcript of his interview with Senate investigators released Wednesday.

Trump Jr. says he can't remember who he spoke to that night. But his father, now President Trump, used a blocked phone number at his home at the time, according to former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

At a rally the next day, the presidential candidate alluded to information his campaign was gathering on Hillary Clinton. He said he was planning to give a "major speech" the following week "discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons," he said.

"I think you're going to find it very informative and very, very interesting," Trump said. "I wonder if the press will want to attend, who knows."
