    As part of its daily wrap of the Susan Rice newsflow, which focused on her first media appearance since she was "outed" as the persona responsible for "unmasking" members of team Trump, the WSJ provides two new pieces of incremental information: i) in addition to Michael Flynn, at least one more member of the Trump transition team was "unmasked" in intelligence reports due to multiple foreign conversations that weren't related to Russia; and ii) Rice wasn't the administration official who instigated Mr. Flynn’s unmasking, confirming there is at least one more high-level official giving "unmasking" orders.

    TEL AVIV – Speaking at a conference two weeks before the 2016 presidential election, Evelyn Farkas, a former top Obama administration official, predicted that if Donald Trump won the presidency he would “be impeached pretty quickly or somebody else would have to take over government,” Breitbart News has found. (snip) Now it has emerged that at on October 26, 2016, Farkas made remarks as a panelist at the annual Warsaw Security Forum predicting Trump’s removal from office “pretty quickly.” Asked at the event to address the priorities of a future Hillary Clinton administration, Farkas stated: It’s not a done deal,...
  • (FAKE News) CNN's Lemon calls Susan Rice story a 'diversion'

    CNN’s Don Lemon described reports that former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice unmasked members of the Trump transition team a “diversion” during a report on Monday night. Lemon then told his audience that his show “will not insult your intelligence” by focusing too much on the story. “Let’s be very clear about this: there is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team … was spied on illegally. There is no evidence that backs up the president’s original claim,” Lemon said. “We will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people who are...

    The panel on Morning Joe, Tuesday, was understandably befuddled by revelations that former White House U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice requested the unmasking of names of Trump transition officials. “I know nothing about this,” said Rice. “I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes.” “We’re going to have an investigation of this,” said show mainstay David Ignatius. “We’ll begin to dig and learn what the facts were. What was the context of these unmasking requests.” Scarborough, who has lately become a fierce Trump critic, trained his fire on Rice, arguing that the revelations from Bloomberg reporter Eli Lake deserved to...

    WikiLeaks has published hundreds more files today which it claims show the CIA went to great lengths to disguise its own hacking attacks and point the finger at Russia, China, North Korea and Iran. The 676 files released today are part of WikiLeaks' Vault 7 tranche of files and they claim to give an insight into the CIA's Marble software, which can forensically disguise viruses, trojans and hacking attacks. WikiLeaks says the source code suggests Marble has test examples in Chinese, Russian, Korean, Arabic and Farsi (the Iranian language). It says: 'This would permit a forensic attribution double game, for...

    Accusations that Russia interfered in last year's U.S. elections are "lies" used for "domestic American politics," Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday. "We said on numerous occasions and I reiterate that we are confident … and know for sure that opinion polls in the United States show that very many people are … friendly towards the Russian Federation, and I'd like to tell these people that we perceive and regard the United States as a great power with which we want to establish good partnership relations," Putin said on a CNBC-moderated panel. "All those things are fictional, illusory and provocations,...

    U.S. cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike has revised and retracted statements it used to buttress claims of Russian hacking during last year's American presidential election campaign. The shift followed a VOA report that the company misrepresented data published by an influential British think tank. (snip) VOA reported Tuesday that the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), which publishes an annual reference estimating the strength of world armed forces, disavowed the CrowdStrike report and said it had never been contacted by the company. Ukraine's Ministry of Defense also has stated that the combat losses and hacking never happened. (snip) After CrowdStrike released its...

    John Podesta, national chairman of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, may have opened himself up to a Russian “influence campaign” designed to temper his views of the Kremlin, The Daily Caller News Foundation (TheDCNF) Investigative Group has learned. Influence campaigns are conducted by many governments — including the United States — with the aim of influencing decision makers in other countries to realign their geopolitical worldviews more closely to the influencing country. Some national security experts interviewed by TheDCNF wonder if Podesta may still be a target of Russian influence. They trace the campaign back to...

    A top House Democrat is calling for an investigation into House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes for telling the White House about new information that President Trump and his associates might have been caught up in government surveillance. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said on CNN Thursday that Nunes shouldn't have gone to the press and then briefed Trump about an investigation where Trump is a subject. Cummings said Nunes compromised the independence of his investigation into alleged collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia by doing so. "The intelligence committee is a very special committee, they are privy to information most...

    Rep. Louie Gohmert, an outspoken House Republican from Texas, is calling for a congressional investigation of John Podesta’s role with Rusnano, a state-run company founded by Russian President Vladimir Putin, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned. Podesta — best known as Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign chairman and former President Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff — first made contact with the Russian firm in 2011, when he joined the boards and executive committees of three related entities: Boston-based Joule Unlimited; Rotterdam-based Joule Global Holdings; Joule Global Stichting, the company’s controlling interest. All are high-tech renewable...

    The ex-British spy who wrote the so-called Trump dossier briefed FBI agents on his research at the beginning of July, much earlier than previously believed. Weeks after the briefing with the retired spy, Christopher Steele, the FBI formally opened its investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian government. FBI director Jim Comey confirmed the existence and general date of the investigation during testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee on Monday. According to Yahoo! News, federal government sources said Steele briefed investigators on his findings on July 5. That was around two weeks after the ex-MI6...

    Shia Labeouf just can’t catch a break can he? His first attempt at setting up a 24/7, 4-year livestream was abandoned by the Museum of the Moving image after barely a month. The museum cited Shia’s arrest after he allegedly assaulted a Trump supporter, but others speculate it was the growing number of people that threatened to report the museum for violating their tax exemption status by banning Trump supporters from the installation. LaBeouf then relocated it to a Holocaust museum in Albuquerque, New Mexico but that was also quickly shut down in less than two weeks after shots were...

    Sergey Kislyak appeared in the White House visitor logs dozens of times when Barack Obama was in office. The visitor logs, which Obama made public in 2009 in a push for transparency, show that the long-time Russian ambassador to the United States visited the White House at least 22 times between 2009 and 2016. Kislyak appeared in the logs as recently as September 2016 when he had a meeting scheduled with one of Obama’s senior advisers, John Holdren, in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. The other visitors listed at the meeting are Marina W. Gross, Alexander Ermolaev, Alexey Lopatin, Vyacheslav...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions stated, “we are having a lot of leaks today in Washington, that I do believe are troubling. A lot of it would appear to be in violation of the law, and it’s an unhealthy trend, and we’ve got to do better about it.” Sessions also said he never considered amending his statement to the Senate about his meetings with Russia’s ambassador before now, and commented on his decision to recuse himself from any investigations pertaining to the Trump campaign by stating, “we had a full...

    Today on The Lead, host Jake Tapper took a swipe at President Donald Trump over the president’s comments during a Fox News interview that aired yesterday. In that interview, Trump seemingly laid the responsibility of Navy SEAL William ‘Ryan’ Owens’ death during a Yemen raid squarely at the feet of the military, despite giving approval of the mission. “My generals are the most respected that we’ve had in many decades, I believe, and they lost Ryan,” Trump told the Fox hosts. After highlighting Trump honoring Owens at his address to Congress last night, Tapper broke down what actually occurred in...

    Washington (CNN)Traditionally, it's the role of the first lady to accompany spouses of visiting foreign leaders around Washington. That often means a good deal of showcasing local museums, schools, monuments and gardens. It's essentially playing tour guide, but it's part of the role of representing the Administration and playing gracious hostess to very VIP out of town guests. Melania Trump appears to be breaking with this particular tradition. On two pre-scheduled Washington stops Friday, one to Gallaudet University and the other to attend a National Cherry Blossom Festival committee meeting at the Japanese embassy, the first lady of Japan, Akie...

    John Podesta, the former campaign chairman of Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, said Wednesday that fake and misleading news stories are “undermining our democracy.” “It’s sinister, and it’s a vile stream that runs under the ground and it begins to have an effect and takes its toll,” Podesta said at the NewCo Shift Forum, a conference dealing with present-day capitalism, according to Business Insider. Podesta is likely referring to the potential danger of fraudulent news stories with a direct effect on real life. “It’s undermining our democracy. I don’t know what technical fix I’m asking for, but I think the...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tried unsuccessfully on Friday to appeal a decision made by the Architect of the Capitol to remove a controversial painting that depicted police officers as animals. The Architect of the Capitol last month decided to take down the student-made artwork, following outcry from law enforcement organizations and House Republicans offended by the depiction of the police officers as pigs confronting black protesters.
