    ABOUT 50 refugees in Australia’s offshore detention centres have passed the United States’ “extreme vetting” and will be resettled in America in coming weeks. It comes just six weeks before the Manus Island detention centre in Papua New Guinea is due to close. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull this morning said it was “good news” that about 25 refugees from both Manus Island and Nauru would be resettled. Mr Turnbull thanked US President Donald Trump for honouring his deal with the Obama Administration despite his obvious reservations. The deal had been the subject of their testy phone call in January, just...

    --SNIP--Stunning revelations that Obama's intel apparat had been tapping a political opponent reignited Trump's alleging that as President, Obama had “wires tapped” at Trump Tower during the campaign. Obama replied that White House officials did not order the surveillance of US citizens. Those investigations were handled by the Justice Department. Just months after Trump took office, special counsel Mueller convinced a judge to allow its investigators to enter Manafort’s home unannounced, the NYT reported, obtaining the warrant by showing a judge that there was evidence of a crime in Manafort’s home, intimating he was likely to destroy the evidence. The...

    All righty then. Looks like we may have a big problem. Remember in March when President Trump tweeted this shocking item? “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” And, “How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!.” Heads exploded. Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey scowled, “Donald Trump should just do the right thing and apologize to Barack Obama, there is no evidence ... it is absolutely not true.”

    WASHINGTON — Paul J. Manafort was in bed early one morning in July when federal agents bearing a search warrant picked the lock on his front door and raided his Virginia home. They took binders stuffed with documents and copied his computer files, looking for evidence that Mr. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, set up secret offshore bank accounts. They even photographed the expensive suits in his closet. The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, then followed the house search with a warning: His prosecutors told Mr. Manafort they planned to indict him, said two people close to the...

    Washington (CNN)US investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election, sources tell CNN, an extraordinary step involving a high-ranking campaign official now at the center of the Russia meddling probe. The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump. Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence...

    Former President Obama’s presence among Wall Street executives once derided as “fat cats” now nets him roughly $400,000 on the industry’s speaking circuit. A source close to a Northern Trust Corp. speech last month told Bloomberg News on Monday that Mr. Obama was compensated close to $400,000 for his services. Additional sources said that he recently addressed members of the Carlyle Group LP and will receive a similar six-figure paycheck as the keynote speaker at a health-care conference for investment bank Cantor Fitzgerald LP.

    Fake News continues to make the truth all but impossible to ferret out. The destructive hatred against America brought from the streets of Chicago into the White House continues without cease eight months after outgoing President Barack Hussein Obama so hypocritically pretended to wish President Donald Trump well. It’s a palpable hatred that is not only gathering steam but is now taking us all into the surreal. The mainstream media waits breathlessly for Obama to make his first address since leaving office to the nation’s impressionable young in Chicago as if he were still the nation’s Commander in Chief.

    Facing backlash from high-ranking current and former CIA officials, the Dean of the Kennedy School of Government withdrew an invitation for Chelsea Manning to serve as a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics in late-night reversal Friday. “I now think that designating Chelsea Manning as a Visiting Fellow was a mistake, for which I accept responsibility,” Kennedy School Dean Douglas W. Elmendorf wrote in a statement posted to the school’s website shortly after midnight. The school withdrew the invitation to Manning—a transgender activist and former U.S. Army soldier who was imprisoned after disclosing over 700,000 classified government documents— after...

    For years, people have urged Michelle Obama to run for political office, and after giving a remarkable speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, enthusiasm has only grown. Fans of the former First Lady point to her impressive credentials and unmatched popularity as signs that she would make an excellent president. But others believe a Michelle Obama run is nothing more than a pipe dream, and Democrats should focus on actual 2020 contenders. What do you think?

    In 1964, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. appeared on a BBC news show. The host asked King about Attorney General Robert Kennedy's prediction, an audacious one at the time, that a black man could be elected president in 40 years. King thought it would not take that long: "There are certain problems and prejudices and mores in our society which make it difficult now. However, I am very optimistic about the future. Frankly, I have seen certain changes in the United States over the last two years that surprise me. ... On the basis of this, I think we may...

    President Trump said Thursday that efforts by Susan Rice to unmask his associates’ identities in intelligence reports last year are “just the tip of the iceberg,” slamming the former Obama national security adviser days after she spoke to House investigators. “She’s not supposed to be [unmasking], and what she did was wrong … and that’s just the tip of the iceberg,” Trump told Fox News, speaking aboard Air Force One on his way back from surveying Hurricane Irma damage in Florida. He added, “I heard she admitted [to unmasking] yesterday.” A senior Capitol Hill source told Fox News that Rice...

    Former national security adviser Susan Rice privately told House investigators that she unmasked the identities of senior Trump officials to understand why the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates was in New York late last year, multiple sources told CNN. The New York meeting preceded a separate effort by the UAE to facilitate a back-channel communication between Russia and the incoming Trump White House.
