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
Jack Ruby told FBI informant to "watch the fireworks" day JFK died: Documents
Jack Ruby, the man who eventually shot Lee Harvey Oswald, told an FBI informant to "watch the fireworks" on the day President John F. Kennedy was killed, according to new records the National Archives released Friday.
New records first highlighted by University of Virginia political analyst Larry Sabato -- describe what an FBI informant later told officials about Ruby. Oswald shot and killed JFK on Nov. 22, 1963, in Dallas. The interaction on the morning of the JFK assassination wasn't officially relayed to the FBI until March 1977, and the informant was eventually revealed to be Bob Vanderslice of Dallas. read more
Last week more than a dozen socialists won office around the country after taking inspiration from the 76-year-old Vermont firebrand.
Democrats won off-year elections across the country last week for many reasons, but let's pause for a second and give Bernie Sanders some credit. Among the historic victories Democrats earned in Virginia, New Jersey, and elsewhere were a handful of out-and-proud actual socialists who won local office. It could be a precursor to an upsurge in leftists scoring bigger wins in next year's midterms, but it's both a validation of Sanders and proof that the movement he built during the heated 2016 primaries isn't going away anytime soon. 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

In a following tweet, Crosby shared that he will do what he wishes during his performances.
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
