Conservative writer Jerome Corsi says Mueller has summoned his stepson to testify before grand jury
Source: Washington Post

By Rosalind S. Helderman January 14 at 9:47 PM

The stepson of conservative writer Jerome Corsi has been summoned by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to testify before a grand jury, according to Corsi, a sign that Mueller’s team remains focused on the writer and his interactions with Roger Stone, a close associate of President Trump.

Corsi said in a Fox Business Network interview Monday night that his stepson, Andrew Stettner, had recently received a subpoena for his testimony.

As part of their investigation, Mueller’s prosecutors have sought information about emails from 2016 that Corsi deleted from his computer, including exchanges with Stone, according to draft court documents that Corsi released last year.

In Monday’s interview, Corsi said that Mueller’s investigators appeared focused on text messages he and Stettner exchanged in which Stettner said that a computer that had sat on Corsi’s desk had been “scrubbed,” an apparent reference to the deletion.

NEW: Senate just BLOCKED a Chuck Schumer measure that would prevent the Trump admin from lifting sanctions on three firms linked to Russian oligarch and Putin ally Oleg Deripaska.

The vote in the GOP-led Senate was 57-42, short of the 60 needed to move it to a final vote.

MICHAEL COHEN ... Ex-Trump lawyer: Rigging polls 'was at the direction of' Trump
Ex-Trump lawyer: Rigging polls 'was at the direction of' Trump
 

Michael Cohen, a former lawyer for U.S. President Donald Trump, said on Thursday he paid a firm to manipulate online polling data "at the direction of and for the sole benefit of" Trump.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Cohen had paid the data firm Redfinch Solutions to manipulate two public opinion polls in favor of Trump before the 2016 presidential campaign.

"As for the @WSJ article on poll rigging," Cohen said on Twitter on Thursday, "what I did was at the direction of and for the sole benefit of @realDonaldTrump @POTUS. I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn't deserve it."

The attempts to influence the polls ultimately proved largely unsuccessful but does shed a light on the tactics of the Trump campaign and Cohen's role within it. On the campaign trail, Trump frequently referred to his polling numbers to help fuel his candidacy.

The Journal said Cohen commissioned John Gauger, who runs RedFinch Solutions, to write a computer script to repeatedly vote for Trump in a February 2015 Drudge Report poll on potential Republican candidates. The move came as Trump was preparing to enter the 2016 presidential election race, the newspaper reported.

House Judiciary chair says they'll subpoena Mueller report if necessary
Source: CNN

Updated 10:34 PM ET, Wed January 16, 2019


(CNN)The House Judiciary Committee chairman said Wednesday that his panel would subpoena special counsel Robert Mueller's final report if William Barr, President Donald Trump's nominee for attorney general, does not release it to the public.

"If necessary, our committee will subpoena the report. If necessary, we'll get Mueller to testify," Rep. Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat, told CNN's Anderson Cooper on "Anderson Cooper 360." "The American people need the information here."

Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 campaign and possible collusion between Trump associates and Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Barr was nominated by the President after Trump fired his last attorney general, Jeff Sessions, in November. The President had repeatedly and publicly criticized Sessions after he recused himself from overseeing Mueller's investigation. Matt Whitaker was then appointed the acting attorney general. .............

Vaporizing Another Norm, Trump Goes Partisan Inside the Pentagon
Source: GovExec.com
 

The generals tried hard to keep politics out of the Pentagon, but even they don’t have the firepower to stop Donald Trump.

The president went to the Pentagon on Thursday to deliver what was supposed to be a speech announcing the findings of the Defense Department’s missile defense review. Instead, the president used senior uniformed and civilian DOD leaders as a backdrop for a partisan political speech. This time, Trump bashed Democrats and previous unnamed presidents while proclaiming his own greatness on everything from missiles to the budget, the Iran deal, and the military’s overall strength.

It was unprecedented, even for a commander in chief who has used troops as backdrops since his 2016 campaign. Trump started his presidency by crossing unwritten lines — and perhaps Constitutional boundaries — by giving a politically charged speech inside CIA headquarters at Langley, Va. and, one month later, disparaging the American press before troops at the Tampa, Fla., headquarters of U.S. Central Command and U.S. Special Operations Command. Both drew sharp criticism, for politicizing America’s strictly apolitical intelligence professionals and troops who swear oaths to serve the Constitution and are expected to do theirs sometimes life-threatening jobs without regard to the party of the president.

More recently, when Trump visited troops in Iraq and in Germany, he was again criticized for the political nature of his rallies and message, especially after troops were permitted to bring red “Make America Great Again” hats for him to sign.

Paying the critics no mind, Trump made no attempt to keep his Thursday appearance politically neutral.

Democrats demand investigation after report that Trump ordered Michael Cohen to lie to Congress
Source: WA Post

 

Democratic leaders reacted with fury and demanded an investigation late Thursday following a new report that President Trump personally directed his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about the president's push for a lucrative condo project in Moscow in the lead-up to the 2016 election.

The Thursday night report from BuzzFeed News cites two unnamed federal law enforcement officials who say Cohen acknowledged in interviews with the office of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III that the president directed him to deceive Congress about key facts linking Trump to the proposed deal in Russia. Cohen pleaded guilty in November to lying under oath about those details.

Democrats said that if the report is accurate, Trump must quickly be held to account for his role in the perjury, with some raising the specter of impeachment.

"The allegation that the President of the United States may have suborned perjury before our committee in an effort to curtail the investigation and cover up his business dealings with Russia is among the most serious to date," wrote Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. "We will do what's necessary to find out if it's true."

Supreme Court to discuss Mueller-related mystery case behind closed doors Friday
Source: CNN

 

Washington (CNN)The Supreme Court will meet behind closed doors on Friday to discuss a mystery case related to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

The discussion is slated to occur during the justices' regularly scheduled conference where the justices will also consider pending petitions on blockbuster issues such as DACA, the ban on transgender people in the military, abortion and the Second Amendment.

The case concerns an unnamed foreign government-owned corporation that is fighting a subpoena request from a DC-based grand jury. Lower courts have ruled that the company must turn over the information and imposed fines for every day it failed to do so.

Last week the Supreme Court denied an emergency request from the company to freeze the financial penalty, pending appeal.

According to Wikileaks, Ecuadorian embassy staff members are being questioned over the Manafort-Assange connection story that appeared in The Guardian.  No other news outlets have corroborated the story, and Assange denies it.  The DOJ certainly knew of Manafort's whereabouts, and if he was indeed near England at the time, as they have access to the NSA's "travel tracking" network.

Trump startled by cozy Barr-Mueller relationship
Source: CNN

 

President Donald Trump was startled Tuesday as he watched television coverage of his nominee for attorney general describing a warm relationship with the special counsel Robert Mueller in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to three people familiar with the matter.

During the first day of his confirmation hearing, William Barr described telling the President the first time he met him in June 2017 that he was friends with Mueller, referring to him on a first name basis.

"I told him how well I knew Bob Mueller and that the Barrs and Muellers were good friends and would be good friends when this was all over," Barr said. "Bob is a straight-shooter and should be dealt with as such."

While Barr said during his hearing that Trump "was interested" in hearing about the friendship, the details that emerged this week caught the President off guard, the three sources said. He bristled at Barr's description of the close relationship, complaining to aides he didn't realize how much their work overlapped or that they were so close.

Rudy Giuliani: 'Categorically False' that the 'President Counseled Michael Cohen to Lie'
Source: Mediaite

 

by Colby Hall | Jan 18th,

Rudy Giuliani is flatly denying claims that President Donald Trump directed Micahel Cohen to lie to Congress. This is the clearest denial since the Buzzfeed News report was published Thursday night.

In a statement first reported by CNN, Giuliani claims:

“Any suggestion from my source that the president counseled Michael Cohen to lie is categorically false. Michael Cohen is a convicted criminal and a liar. To quote the prosecutors, he has traded on a pattern of lies and dishonesty over an extended period of time, and for that he is going to pay a very, very serious price. Today’s claims are just more made-up lies born of Michael Cohen’s malice and desperation, in an effort to reduce his sentence.”

Since Thursday night’s bombshell report that President Trump allegedly directed his former
attorney Cohen to lie to Congress about a potential Trump Tower Moscow, Trump surrogates have replied with the classic non-denial

Russians tried to hack the DNC days after the midterms, Democrats claim
Source: CNN

 

The Democratic National Committee claims that in the days after the 2018 midterm elections it was likely targeted by a group of Russian intelligence hackers, according to court documents filed overnight.

Dozens of DNC email addresses were targeted in a spear-phising campaign on November 14, 2018, the DNC alleges, adding that the contents and timing of the emails suggest that the campaign was tied to the Russian hacking group known as "Cozy Bear." The DNC adds, "it is probable that Russian intelligence again attempted to unlawfully infiltrate DNC computers in November 2018."

The Democrats said there is no indication in the court filing that November's alleged hacking attempt was successful.

NBC Breaking News: "IMPEACHMENT SEEMS MUCH MORE LIKELY"
Impeachment seems much more likely after Thursday's bombshell report
Jan. 18, 2019, 6:57 AM MST
By Chuck Todd, Mark Murray and Carrie Dann

 

WASHINGTON — The two most important words in American politics today are these two: “if true.”

“President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter,” Buzzfeed News reported last night.

Importantly, the article adds, “The special counsel’s office learned about Trump’s directive for Cohen to lie to Congress through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents. Cohen then acknowledged those instructions during his interviews with that office.”

Well, in 1974, the first article of impeachment against Richard Nixon was obstruction of justice for – among other things – “approving, condoning, acquiescing in, and counselling witnesses with respect to the giving of false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States.”

Mueller disputes accuracy of BuzzFeed report on Trump, Cohen

Source: AP

 

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office on Friday issued a rare public statement disputing the accuracy of BuzzFeed News’ report that said President Donald Trump’s former attorney told Mueller that the president directed him to lie to Congress.

 
BuzzFeed, citing two unidentified law enforcement officials, reported that Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about a Moscow real estate project and that Cohen told Mueller the president personally instructed him to lie about the timing of the deal. The report said Mueller’s investigators learned about Trump’s directive “through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents.”
 
The report said Cohen acknowledged Trump’s instructions when he was interviewed by the Mueller team.
 
The statement by Mueller’s office on Friday night doesn’t cite any specific errors. In it, the special counsel’s spokesman, Peter Carr, said, “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the special counsel’s office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony are not accurate.”

There's a decent chance that Trump is never found guilty of anything big and will walk mostly Scott free. The fact that we're on the second year of this investigation and nothing has been discovered besides an attempt to build a building in moscow and a "possible" piss tape is kind of sad.
