Supreme Court rules against mystery corporation 'from Country A' fighting subpoena in Mueller invest
Source: Washington Post
 

The Supreme Court on Tuesday left in place a lower court order requiring an unnamed foreign-owned corporation to comply with a subpoena said to be part of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. The court dissolved a temporary stay that had been put in place by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. In a short order, it did not give a reason for the decision, nor did it note any dissents.

The entity that is the subject of the cloaked legal battle -- known in court papers simply as a "Corporation" from "Country A" -- is a foreign financial institution that was issued a subpoena by a grand jury hearing evidence in the special counsel investigation, according to two people familiar with the case. It is thought to be the first time that an aspect of Mueller's wide-ranging probe into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign has reached the Supreme Court.

Last year, a federal court in Washington ordered the corporation to pay a daily fine until it complied with the subpoena, according to court records. An appeals court panel upheld that decision last month, prompting the company's lawyers to appeal to the Supreme Court. Late last month, Roberts, who receives emergency petitions from the D.C. Circuit, put the order and the fines on hold until the justices could consider the matter.

The secret nature of the case has prompted a Washington guessing-game about the information that Mueller is pursuing. In the lower courts and at the Supreme Court, details of the legal battle to get information from the corporation have been sealed. At one point an entire floor of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit was closed to the public to protect the identity of the litigants.

Mueller believes Manafort fed information to Russian with intel ties
Source: CNN

CNN Digital Expansion 2018 Katelyn Polantz

By Katelyn Polantz, CNN

Updated 4:13 PM ET, Tue January 8, 2019

 

    Washington (CNN)Special counsel Robert Mueller believes that Paul Manafort was sharing polling data and discussing Russian-Ukrainian policy with his close Russian-intelligence-linked associate, Konstantin Kilimnik, while he led the Trump presidential campaign, according to parts of a court filing that were meant to be redacted by Manafort's legal team Tuesday but were released publicly.

    Manafort discussed a Ukrainian peace plan with Kilimnik, his lawyers acknowledged. He also shared polling data related to the 2016 presidential campaign with Kilimnik, Manafort's legal team acknowledges in their court filing.

    The details accidentally released Tuesday are the closest public assertion yet in the Mueller cases of coordination between a Trump campaign official and the Russian government, as Kilimnik is believed to be linked to Russian military intelligence. It's a major acknowledgment from the Mueller team that their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is finding potential contact between at least one Trump campaign official and the Kremlin.

    The Ukraine peace plan that they discussed likely would have dealt with Russian intervention in the region. At around the same time, Russian government operatives were allegedly hacking Democratic computers to help Trump and orchestrating a social media propaganda scheme to sway voters against Trump's electoral opponents.................

Graham Says Trump's Attorney General Pick Won't End Mueller ProbeThis discussion thread was locked as off-topic by DonViejo (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).
Source: Bloomberg

 

President Donald Trump’s attorney general nominee told Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham that he’ll let Special Counsel Robert Mueller complete his Russia probe and err on the side of transparency in handling Mueller’s final report, the South Carolina Republican said.

Graham, a close ally of Trump, met Wednesday with William Barr, who the president nominated to replace ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions, ahead of his confirmation hearings next week.

“I asked Mr. Barr directly, ‘Do you think Bob, Mr. Mueller’s, on a witch hunt?’ He said no. ‘Do you think he would be fair to the president and the country as a whole?’ He said yes,” Graham told reporters.

Barr said that when Mueller’s report is delivered to him, he would go through a process to determine what could be shared with the Congress and the public, “erring on the side of transparency.” It’s a commitment that could bring Barr into conflict with the White House

Manafort revelations could put Kellyanne Conway under Mueller scrutiny: campaign data expert
.

https://www.rawstory...gn-data-expert/


    The latest revelations about Paul Manafort’s contacts with an alleged Russian spy could mean that Kellyanne Conway may fall under scrutiny by special counsel Robert Mueller.

    David Measer, an advertising and communications expert, explained the importance of the polling data that Manafort shared with Ukrainian associate Konstantin Kilimnik, who Mueller alleges has ties to Russian military intelligence.
    .
    .
    “Sharing polling data with anyone is opening a door to collaborate with them,” Measer said. “Sharing polling data means you’re working together. Conspiring. Making decisions together. Working to destroy the competition.”

    Everything you need to destroy the competition.

    Not so benign anymore.

    You know who knows a lot about this? @KellyannePolls -- someone should ask her.

Fox News’ Shep Smith and Andrew Napolitano agree: The Trump campaign colluded with Russia
 
09 JAN 2019 AT 16:18 ET                   
 
While critics say President Donald Trump “manufactured” a crisis at the border, two personalities on Fox News say there is a crisis unfolding in Washington D.C.
 
On Wednesday, Fox News host Shep Smith and judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano agreed that Trump’s campaign appears to have colluded with Russia.
 
It was revealed Tuesday that Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort shared polling data with a Russian operative, according to a poorly redacted legal filing by his attorneys.

GOP lawmakers rip Dems for calling Cohen to testify
Source: MSN

 

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the top Republican on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, on Thursday criticized news that President Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen is set to publicly testify before the panel next month.

Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said in a statement earlier Thursday that Cohen had agreed to voluntarily testify on Feb. 7.

"Chairman Cummings promised to pursue rigorous, responsible, fact-based oversight," Jordan said in a statement. "However, the Chairman's announcement today suggests he will be using the committee as a venue for political theater rather than legitimate oversight."

Jordan knocked Cohen, saying he has pleaded guilty for misstatements he made to Congress while testifying about his contacts with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump team should be allowed to 'correct' final Mueller report, says Giuliani
Source: The Hill

 

BY NIALL STANAGE - 01/11/19 08:55 AM EST

Rudy Giuliani says President Trump’s legal team should be allowed to “correct” special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report before Congress or the American people get the chance to read it.

The claim, made in a telephone interview with The Hill on Thursday evening, goes further than the president’s legal advisers have ever gone before in arguing they have a right to review the conclusions of Mueller’s probe, which is now in its 20th month.

“As a matter of fairness, they should show it to you — so we can correct it if they’re wrong,” said the former New York City mayor, who is a member of Trump's personal legal team. “They’re not God, after all. They could be wrong.”

In the wide-ranging interview, Giuliani also made light of the decision by Michael Cohen — Trump’s former attorney, who was recently sentenced to three years in prison — to testify in public before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Feb. 7.

Trump: I have been tougher on Russia that any other president
Source: The Hill

 

BY JOHN BOWDEN - 01/12/19 09:13 AM EST

-snip-

 

In a tweet posted Saturday morning, the president argued that it was right to seek positive relations with Russia, while arguing that his administration had confronted Russia on the global stage more than did the last three administrations.

"I have been FAR tougher on Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton," Trump tweeted. "Maybe tougher than any other President."

"At the same time, & as I have often said, getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing," he went on. "I fully expect that someday we will have good relations with Russia again!"

House Democrats eye reported FBI probe of Trump
Source: Reuters

 

A U.S. House of Representatives committee will look into a newspaper report that the FBI investigated whether President Donald Trump has been working on behalf of Russia, against U.S. interests, the panel’s Democratic chairman said on Saturday.
<snip>

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said his panel “will take steps to better understand both the president’s actions and the FBI’s response to that behavior” in coming weeks. He also said lawmakers would seek to protect investigators from the president’s “increasingly unhinged attacks.”

“There is no reason to doubt the seriousness or professionalism of the FBI, as the president did in reaction to this story,” Nadler, a New York Democrat, said in a statement.
<snip>

“Counterintelligence concerns about those associated with the Trump campaign, including the president himself, have been at the heart of our investigation since the beginning,” said Schiff, a California Democrat.

Trump Goes On Epic Tweetstorm After NYT Reveals FBI "Witch Hunt" Escalation Following Comey Firing
Profile picture for user Tyler Durden
by Tyler Durden

https://www.zerohedg...ion-after-comey

 

President Trump on Saturday lashed out after a Friday evening report in the New York Times that US law enforcement officials "became so concerned by the president's behavior" in the days after Trump fired James Comey as FBI director, that "they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests."

According to the NYT, agents and senior F.B.I. officials "had grown suspicious of Mr. Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign" but held off on opening an investigation into him, the people said, in part because they were uncertain how to proceed with an inquiry of such sensitivity and magnitude.

What happened next? Well, a collusion narrative was born and carefully crafted as the paper explains:

Pompeo: 'Ludicrous' to think Trump is threat to US national security
Source: The Hill

 

BY JOHN BOWDEN - 01/12/19 11:27 AM EST

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says in an interview set to air Sunday that it is "ludicrous" to think that President Trump is a threat to national security.

The Cabinet official was responding to a report from The New York Times published Friday night that claimed FBI agents began investigating whether Trump was working on behalf of Russia after he fired FBI Director James Comey in 2017.

-snip-

"I'm not going to comment on New York Times stories, but I'll certainly say this: the- the notion that President Trump is a threat to American national security is absolutely ludicrous," Pompeo told CBS' Margaret Brennan for an interview set to air on "Face the Nation."

"The idea that's contained in the New York Times story that President Trump was a threat to American national security is silly on its face and not worthy of a response," he added.

Mueller Draft Report Says Trump 'Helped Putin Destabilize the United States', Watergate Journalist S

Mueller Draft Report Says Trump 'Helped Putin Destabilize the United States', Watergate Journalist Says

Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein has said that he’s been told that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report will show how President Donald Trump helped Russia “destabilize the United States.”

Bernstein, who is renowned for his coverage of the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of former President Richard Nixon, appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday to discuss two bombshell reports released this weekend, one from The New York Times and one from The Washington Post, which revealed new details about whether or not Trump and his aides have colluded with Russia.

The Post reported that Trump has gone to “extraordinary lengths” to conceal direct conversations he has had with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Times article revealed that the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into Trump after he fired former bureau director James Comey in 2017, suspecting the president could be working on behalf of Russia. Trump has angrily denied allegations that he worked with Russia and has regularly attacked the media for reporting on the investigation. But Bernstein slammed Trump’s dismissal of the probe.

“This is about the most serious counterintelligence people we have in the U.S. government saying, ‘Oh, my God, the president’s words and actions lead us to conclude that somehow he has become a witting, unwitting, or half-witting pawn, certainly in some regards, to Vladimir Putin,'” Bernstein explained during his appearance on Reliable Sources .

Dem demands 'ironclad assurances' from Barr on Mueller investigation ahead of confirmation hearings
Source: The Hill

BY MICHAEL BURKE - 01/13/19 09:50 AM EST

 

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) on Sunday demanded that William Barr, the nominee for attorney general, give "ironclad assurances" during his confirmation hearings this week that he will not impede special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

Durbin said during an interview on ABC's "This Week" that he's "worried" about whether Barr can properly oversee Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice on the part of President Trump.

“I’m worried about it. Clearly, he’s a good lawyer. There’s no question. But when it comes to this delicate political situation — the power of the presidency, whether this investigation is warranted — Bill Barr had better give us some ironclad assurances in terms of his independence and his willingness to step back and let Mueller finish his job," Durbin said.

Trump: 'I never worked for Russia'
Source: CNN
 

President Donald Trump said definitively on Monday he never worked for Russia after offering a non-denial when questioned over the weekend about an FBI investigation into whether he was working with Moscow.

"I never worked for Russia, and you know that answer better than anybody," Trump said on the South Lawn.

"It's a whole big fat hoax. It's just a hoax," Trump said of the FBI's Russia investigation.

...snip...

"The people doing that investigation were people that have been caught that are known scoundrels," he said. "I guess you could say they're dirty cops."

He used familiar attack lines against Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and James Comey, and said the FBI had experienced a turnaround after those officials' departures.
