    Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster has a shaved head and gung-ho manner that only add to his reputation as the U.S. Army’s leading warrior-intellectual, one who often quotes famed Prussian general and military theorist Carl Von Clausewitz. A decade ago, McMaster fought a pitched battle inside the Pentagon for a new concept of warfare to address the threat from Islamist terrorists and insurgents in Afghanistan, Iraq and other trouble spots. Now, his new mission is more focused. Target: Moscow. POLITICO has learned that, following the stunning success of Russia’s quasi-secret incursion into Ukraine, McMaster is quietly overseeing a high-level government panel...

    White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said Sunday that high-ranking U.S. intelligence officials have assured the administration that none of President Trump’s campaign aides had contact with Russian spies and that news reports that speculate otherwise are “complete garbage.” Mr. Priebus made the comments as the Trump administration forcefully pushed back against reports that began with an anonymously sourced story in The New York Times that dominated news coverage for days. “I’ve been approved to say this. The top levels of the intelligence community have assured me that story is not only inaccurate, but it is grossly overstated and...

    Louis J. Marinelli is a man on a quixotic mission: to help California secede from the United States and become an independent country. Surprisingly, this quest has been going relatively well of late. Marinelli's group, Yes California, is attempting to collect 585,000 signatures necessary to place a secessionist question on the 2018 ballot. Buoyed by California's already tense relationship with President Donald Trump, the campaign has received a large amount of press coverage and support over the past few months. But for the 30-year-old Yes California president, there remains one annoying problem: People keep asking him why he lives in...

    WASHINGTON -- Gen. Mike Flynn provided the first scalp in the Trump administration in record time -- he served as White House National Security Adviser for 23 fleeting days before he resigned Monday night. In the eyes of President Donald Trump, Flynn could be his team's first casualty of "fake news." As Trump told reporters at his epic press conference Thursday, he asked for Flynn's resignation because Flynn didn't tell Vice President Mike Pence that he may have discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador during the transition period. Pence then told CBS' "Face the Nation," that of course Flynn had...

New York Times has reported that the FBI or more precisely “intelligence agencies” say they have e-mail transmissions, the transcriptions of the overheard conversations and financial records that prove this.

And it seemed as though the briefing was urgent, with senators delaying their departure during a weekend recess to hear what Comey had to say. The Senate Intel Committee considers all manner of intelligence matters so in theory the briefing could have been about anything. Most recently, though, the Committee’s been in the news because it’s leading the congressional investigation into Russian interference in last year’s presidential campaign.

The self-described fact checking website PolitiFact quickly pronounced Trump's statement as "mostly false." "First of all, Secretary Clinton did not act alone," PolitiFact spokesman Nicholas Pecker pointed out. "She had the full backing of President Obama. Second, the deal was for 20% of the United States' uranium production capacity. That's a totally different thing. Finally, the uranium wasn't given to Russia.

Just as they have a hundred times before, they’re thinking “this time we’ve got him.” As per usual, they probably don’t. However, they want to make it appear as though they do, and they want to maintain that perception as long as possible. It’s all part of knee-capping the new administration and de-legitimizing the President. So, the press has been burying the lead like a pirate with a chest full of gold.

The talk within the tight-knit community of retired intelligence officers was that Flynn’s sacking was a result of intelligence insiders at the CIA, NSA and National Security Council using a sophisticated “disinformation campaign” to create a crisis atmosphere.

    Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign spokesman Tuesday night called the information in a New York Times report — which said intercepted phone calls showed that officials of Donald Trump's campaign had repeated contacts with Russian intelligence officials — a "colossal scandal." Brian Fallon, the Clinton campaign's press secretary, said on Twitter that the report, posted online Tuesday night by The New York Times, proved "everything we suspected during the campaign."(continued)

    <p>Tucker Carlson: "In the past couple of months I’ve seen a lot of stories including some from you accusing people of basically carrying water for the Russian government and the Russian government is in the news today so I thought I’d ask you something I’ve wondered for a long time which is the Washington Post for years, for many years, has literally carried paid propaganda from the Russian government, a section called ‘Russia behind the headlines.’ It looks like news but it’s designed to fool readers into thinking it’s real. And it’s pure propaganda paid for, distributed by the Russian government… Why have you never written about that? How can you attack others when your own paper takes money from the Russian government".</p>

No one ever expected a reality TV star would one day be the president of the United States. When it comes to considering the unlikely, maybe it’s best to keep telling yourself this. I mean, is there any other way to explain how the one man with top secret information on President Donald Trump and his ties with Russia could be none other than...

    High-level advisers close to then-presidential nominee Donald Trump were in constant communication during the campaign with Russians known to US intelligence, multiple current and former intelligence, law enforcement and administration officials tell CNN. President-elect Trump and then-President Barack Obama were both briefed on details of the extensive communications between suspected Russian operatives and people associated with the Trump campaign and the Trump business, according to US officials familiar with the matter. Both the frequency of the communications during early summer and the proximity to Trump of those involved "raised a red flag" with US intelligence and law enforcement, according to...

    Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials. ... The officials said the intercepted communications were not limited to Trump campaign officials, and included other associates of Mr. Trump. On the Russian side, the contacts also included members of the Russian government outside of the intelligence services, the officials said. All of the current and former officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because the continuing investigation...

    For the record, Michael Flynn is a lifelong DEMOCRAT and an Obama appointee (to a highly sensitive position). That alone is reason enough to be suspicious of him, especially when considering the hard Left shift of the party in recent years. Michael Flynn: "because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the President and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology. _____________________________________________ Michael Flynn was invited to attend and speak at the 10th Anniversary...

    Four Russian military aircraft conducted low passes against a U.S. destroyer in the Black Sea last week, the first such military provocation since the new Trump administration took office. The incident took place Feb. 10 and involved the USS Porter, a guided missile destroyer, fending off low flights by what the commander of the ship regarded as potentially dangerous flybys.

    The resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn on Monday evening raises troubling questions about the role of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the intelligence services. Flynn ostensibly resigned because he provided Vice President Mike Pence with “incomplete information” about a conversation he had with the Russian ambassador, which turned out to include a discussion of recent sanctions, contrary to his earlier denials. Trust is crucial; the resignation was warranted. That said, the sanctions were largely bogus, and were applied not just to punish Russia for spying on the U.S. (both countries clearly spy on each other), but...
