In the weeks after he became the Republican nominee on July 19, 2016, Donald Trump was warned that foreign adversaries, including Russia, would probably try to spy on and infiltrate his campaign, according to multiple government officials familiar with the matter. The warning came in the form of a high-level counterintelligence briefing by senior FBI officials, the officials said. A similar briefing was given to Hillary Clinton, they added. They said the briefings, which are commonly provided to presidential nominees, were designed to educate the candidates and their top aides about potential threats from foreign spies. The candidates were urged to alert the FBI about any suspicious overtures to their campaigns, the officials said. read more

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has obtained "many tens of thousands" of Trump transition emails, including emails of Jared Kushner, transition team sources tell Axios. Trump officials discovered Mueller had the emails when his prosecutors used them as the basis for questions to witnesses, the sources said. The emails include 12 accounts, one of which contains about 7,000 emails, the sources said. The accounts include the team's political leadership and the foreign-policy team, the sources said. Why it matters: The transition emails are said to include sensitive exchanges on matters that include potential appointments, gossip about the views of particular senators involved in the confirmation process, speculation about vulnerabilities of Trump nominees, strategizing about press statements, and policy planning on everything from war to taxes. "Mueller is using the emails to confirm things, and get new leads," a transition source told me. read more

Andrea Ramsey, a Democratic candidate for Congress, will drop out of the race after the Kansas City Star asked her about accusations in a 2005 lawsuit that she sexually harassed and retaliated against a male subordinate who said he had rejected her advances. Multiple sources with knowledge of the case told The Star that the man reached a settlement with LabOne, the company where Ramsey was executive vice president of human resources. Court documents show that the man, Gary Funkhouser, and LabOne agreed to dismiss the case permanently after mediation in 2006. Ramsey, a 56-year-old retired business executive from Leawood, was one of the Democratic candidates vying to challenge Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder in 2018 in Kansas' 3rd District. read more


The United Nations monitor on poverty and human rights has issued a devastating report on the condition of America, accusing Donald Trump and the Republican leadership in Congress of attempting to turn the country into the "world champion of extreme inequality." Philip Alston, the UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, has completed a two-week official tour of the US by releasing an excoriating attack on the direction of the nation. Not only does he warn that the tax bill currently being rushed through Congress will hugely increase already large disparities between rich and poor, he accuses Trump and his party of consciously distorting the shape of American society in a "bid to become the most unequal society in the world." read more

Stacia Robitaille, wife of hockey Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille, claimed Monday that U.S. President Donald Trump once made "aggressive" advances toward her in an elevator at Madison Square Garden. Robitaille tweeted that the encounter with Trump occurred while her husband was playing for the New York Rangers during the mid-1990s. She said Trump was with another man when the alleged incident took place. Her husband is the current president of business operations for the Los Angeles Kings, the franchise he starred with and where he played 14 of his 19 NHL seasons. Robitaille's claim of the unwanted advances come a day after three women who had previously accused Trump of sexual harassment reiterated their allegations on NBC's Megyn Kelly Today. On Tuesday, Trump tweeted he was being targeted with "false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don't know and/or have never met." read more

No, he's going to fire Rosenstein, who technically is the only one who can fire Mueller, and then get Rosenstein replacement to fire Mueller:

Trump privately calling Rosenstein a threat to his presidency

Trump through Sessions already asked Boente to resign, next he will get rid of Rosenstein and McCabe and anyone else he thinks will uphold the rule of law and not swear a loyalty oath to him.
