    THE CONTINUING FALLOUT FROM TRUMP AND NUNES’S FAKE SCANDAL

    ... It is now clear that the scandal was not Rice’s normal review of the intelligence reports but the coördinated effort between the Trump Administration and Nunes to sift through classified information and computer logs that recorded Rice’s unmasking requests, and then leak a highly misleading characterization of those documents, all in an apparent effort to turn Rice, a longtime target of Republicans, into the face of alleged spying against Trump ...

    The Continuing Fallout from Trump and Nunes’s Fake Scandal

    It has to do with "conflict of business interests." :facepalm: ten to twelve days before there's an answer.

    Why is Trump celebrating Turkey’s democratic crisis?

    During yesterday’s White House press briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked about Turkey’s referendum, and allegations of election irregularities in a process that’s given Recep Tayyip Erdogan sweeping new powers. Spicer was circumspect.

    My understanding is there’s an international commission that is reviewing this and issues a report in 10 to 12 days,” Spicer said ...

    Why is Trump celebrating Turkey's democratic crisis?

    Trump not only contradicted his own press secretary, his call also appears to be at odds with the statement on the Turkish referendum from the State Department.

    We just got a huge sign that the US intelligence community believes the Trump dossier is legitimate

    The FBI reportedly used the explosive, unverified dossier detailing President Donald Trump's alleged ties to Russia to bolster its case for a warrant that would allow it to surveil Carter Page, an early foreign-policy adviser to Trump's campaign.

    It's a key signal that the FBI had enough confidence in the validity of the document to work to corroborate it and present it in court ...
