Peskov did not elaborate on what the three discussed. Earlier in the day, Tillerson held a meeting with Sergey Lavrov.

    The White House said Thursday that while the media is “obsessed” with the details surrounding House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ (R-Calif.) visit to the White House last week, it is focused on finding out who leaked the names of U.S. citizens, which the intelligence community incidentally collected information on during surveillance of the Trump campaign. {..snip..}

    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...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on Thursday that he has met with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. because senators try to meet with all ambassadors to forge relationships with them. Camerota asked Manchin if he has met Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. "Have you met with the Russian ambassador in your capacity?" she asked. Manchin said that he not only met with the ambassador, but did so with a group of senators. "I have," Manchin said. "I have met with the Russian ambassador with a group in my capacity, with a group of other senators." {..snip..}

    Tom Friedman’s frothing hyperventilation on CNN this morning epitomizes the Dem/MSM hysteria over the Sessions/Russians flap. Friedman claimed: “A lot of evidence” that Jeff Sessions “perjured himself.” The failure of more Republicans to be up in arms about the matter “one of the most shameful things I have seen in almost 30 years being in Washington, DC.” In a nifty bit of saying something by claiming not to say it, in describing the seriousness of the matter, Friedman mentions 9/11 and Pearl Harbor while claiming not to compare them, at least in terms of “lives lost.” View the video here.
