Kushner received emails from Sergei Millian -- an alleged dossier source who was in touch with George Papadopoulos

Jared Kushner was copied on emails sent to the Trump campaign last year from Sergei Millian, a Belarus-born businessman who was reportedly a key source in the explosive dossier alleging ties between Trump and Russia.

Millian told associates last year that he was in regular touch with George Papadopoulos -- a campaign foreign policy adviser who lied to the FBI about the extent and nature of his contacts with Kremlin-linked foreign nationals.

Millian's relationship with Papadopoulos, who was told in April 2016 that the Kremlin had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton, raises questions about what they discussed during the election and what they relayed to campaign officials. read more

When David Crosby & Friends performed at The Regent Theatre in Arlington, Massachusetts on Monday, the show featured more than just his famous hits.

The singer spoke out against President Donald Trump during the show. Following the concert, an attendee reached out to the founding member of Crosby, Stills & Nash on Twitter, asking Crosby to stick to music.

"Don't you realize that you will piss off 1/2 of your audience or at least 1/3 in liberal areas when you do that?" the fan wrote in a tweet mentioning the singer.

In response, Crosby said:

If you're a Trump dummy and you don't like progressives
Don't come to my show ------- t.co

Two Republican operatives on Tuesday called out Attorney General Jeff Sessions' declaration that the "chaos" of Donald Trump's campaign rendered him unable to recall meetings in which Trump campaign aides told him of their efforts to reach out to Russian government officials. John Weaver, who served as top strategist for Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich's 2016 presidential campaign, mocked Sessions on Twitter for having a "possum memory" and noted that most people would remember conversations in which campaign officials floated the idea of getting help from hostile foreign powers to defeat their opponents. "Jeff, I've been involved in scores of presidential campaigns and politely suggest meetings with Russians or discussions about the candidate meeting with Putin ... ANYONE would remember," he wrote. read more

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission next month is planning a vote to kill Obama-era rules demanding fair treatment of web traffic and may decide to vacate the regulations altogether, according to people familiar with the plans.

The move would reignite a years-long debate that has seen Republicans and broadband providers seeking to eliminate the rules, while Democrats and technology companies support them. The regulations passed in 2015 bar broadband providers such as AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp. from interfering with web traffic sent by Google, Facebook Inc. and others. read more

The "international oligarchy" of billionaires hiding their fortunes and secretly controlling the world's wealth is the "major issue of our time," Senator Bernie Sanders said Monday after a massive report about offshore accounts. "The major issue of our time is the rapid movement toward international oligarchy in which a handful of billionaires own and control a significant part of the global economy," the independent Vermont senator told The Guardian. He said the Paradise Papers, a sprawling investigation into offshore finances, "shows how these billionaires and multi-national corporations get richer by hiding their wealth and profits and avoid paying their fair share of taxes." read more
