    Washington Post ^ | July 24, | Aaron Blake
    Former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, at long last, testified before Congress about his investigation into Russian interference and President Trump’s conduct related to it. Mueller appeared before the House Judiciary Committee in the morning and the House Intelligence Committee in the afternoon. Here’s what we learned from both sessions. 1. Mueller struggled If Democrats hoped this would be a seminal moment, they will apparently leave sorely disappointed — in large part because their star witness was no star. Mueller spoke haltingly, seemed not to remember key details and tripped over himself even when members weren’t trying to trip...
  • Spicer on Mueller Report: 'Dems Dug a Hole So Deep,' Now Don't Know How to Get Out

    Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Democrats have a "dug a hole" for themselves with their years of claims of Trump-Russia collusion and now don't know what to do after Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not confirm their suspicions. He said Mueller's report does not have to be released, according to Justice Department policies, and Attorney General William Barr is going "above and beyond" by promising to release a redacted version to Congress. Spicer blasted House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for continuing to claim collusion occurred "in plain sight." He said if that were true, Mueller...

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller just won't go home — and neither will CNN. Reporters — namely the so-called CNN stakeout team — have spent months loitering around Mueller's office, hoping to catch a glimpse of the mysterious man and his even more mysterious investigation into the Trump campaign's conduct surrounding Russian election interference. Yet even though the whole world knows Mueller's job is pretty much wrapped, the CNN stakeout team seemingly hasn't gotten the message.

    The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has made criminal referrals to the special counsel’s office, including regarding former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, the chairman of the panel revealed Friday. “We have made referrals to the special prosecutor,” North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr said at a forum held at the University of Texas in Austin. “One instance just highlighted of late, is that the special prosecutor is using the transcripts of interviews that we have used in our committee to indict somebody for lying to Congress.”

    MSN ^ | 4-25-2018 | Eric Tucker
    The Associated Press and other news organizations asked a judge Wednesday to unseal records in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, citing overwhelming public interest in a case they said was among the most important in American history. The news media coalition is asking specifically for transcripts of hearings in the ongoing prosecution of President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, as well as access to sealed search warrant applications filed by investigators. Any interest in protecting the integrity of the probe, which is examining potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, is outweighed by the public's right...

    On Tuesday's 'Morning Joe' on MSNBC, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine warned that Democrats would view any attempt by the president to fire Robert Mueller or signal plans to issue pardons "as the president pushing the nation into a constitutional crisis." (snip) BRZEZINSKI: So the president calls this a witch hunt. He says they didn't find anything. And he really was quite defensive yesterday about -- that this was a sad situation and he's not sure whether or not Mueller will be fired. Are you concerned that this investigation could be thwarted? KAINE: Yes. I think the president is clearly panicked....

    Alan Dershowitz analyzed what he thinks is Special Counsel Robert Mueller's grand strategy in the Russia investigation, calling it the "criminalization of political differences." "He has to go after somebody," the Harvard law professor emeritus and lifelong Democrat explained. "He can't just spend all the money and do nothing." "If he can find little things that's going to be a victory for him," the lawyer told "Fox & Friends."

    Business Insider ^ | 10-28-2017 | WSJ Editorial Board
    The Wall Street Journal's editorial board called this week for a full Russia investigation — not into President Donald Trump, but into the Democratic party, the FBI, and special counsel Robert Mueller. "It turns out that Russia has sown distrust in the U.S. political system—aided and abetted by the Democratic Party, and perhaps the FBI," the editorial began. "This is an about-face from the dominant media narrative of the last year, and it requires a full investigation." The editorial argued that a Washington Post report published Tuesday "revealed" that Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee hired the Perkins...

    The Hill ^ | 09/06/2017 | JACQUELINE THOMSEN
    Facebook has turned over its data on ads bought by a Russian company during the 2016 election to special counsel Robert Mueller, Reuters reported Wednesday. The tech company gave Mueller’s team copies of the ads as well as the identities of the ads’ buyers, a source told Reuters. The handover of information comes after Facebook revealed earlier Wednesday that thousands of ads posted on the site over the past two years were linked to fake Facebook accounts based out of Russia. Facebook’s chief security officer, Alex Stamos, said nearly 500 accounts had spent roughly $100,000 on about 3,000 ads, but...

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team is examining Manafort's financial and real estate records in New York as well as his involvement in Ukrainian politics, the officials said.

    An attorney for President Trump was adamant on Sunday that the president is not under investigation, despite the president’s tweets this week referring to one as a "witch hunt." “Let me be clear here,” said Jay Sekulow, a member of the president’s legal team, on NBC's “Meet The Press.” “The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction." On Friday morning, President Trump sent a tweet that seemed to confirm that he was under scrutiny, writing, “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!

    Flopping Aces ^ | 04-17-10 | Alec Rawls
    In Senate testimony, Robert Meuller does everything he can to suggest that he is talking about Islamic extremists. He cites Nidal Hasan's mass murder of American soldiers at Fort Hood. He cites Mumbai attacks planner David Headley. But thanks to Obama's banning of any reference to Islam in relation to terror threats, Meuller is unable to specify that it isn't animal rights activists or disgruntled taxpayers who he is calling "an equally serious threat" as al Qaeda. He can only describe the danger as "US-born extremists," of no particular persuasion. Not allowed to name the enemy, Meuller sounds like Ray...

    Two weeks ago, not far from here, bells tolled at Ground Zero. We commemorated the sixth anniversary of the September 11th attacks. And we marked the passage of another year without a terrorist attack on American soil. It is important to pause and reflect on how we reached this milestone, so that we can better understand what we must do to reach another one. This task grows more complicated with every passing year. In the wake of the September 11th attacks, the focus of the nation was crystallized. Our objective was clear: We knew who, and where, our enemies were,...
