Senate Report Unveils Chilling Celebratory Toast Made by Kremlin-Directed Russian Agents After Trump Won in 2016
As U.S. intelligence agencies determined and the Mueller Report confirmed, Russian agents attacked American elections in a "sweeping and systematic fashion" to help now-President Donald Trump and weaken his 2016 opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Now, the Republican-dominated Senate Intelligence Committee report is confirming the same. The committee—headed by Trump-supporting Senator Richard Burr (R-NC)—not only corroborated the findings of intelligence officials, but urged the White House to take action.
The Republican-Led Senate Intel Committee Just Subpoenaed Don Jr. Regarding His Previous Testimony on Russia
The bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. over testimony he previously gave Senate investigators in relation to the Russia investigation.
"We do not discuss the details of witness engagements with the Committee. Throughout the investigation, the Committee has reserved the right to recall witnesses for additional testimony as needed, as every witness and witness counsel has been made aware," a Senate Intelligence Committee spokesperson told Axios.
Alex Jones Just Confronted Marco Rubio Outside a Senate Hearing and Things Got Super Awkward When Rubio Tried to Ignore Him
After years of violating the terms of service (TOS) agreements for Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, Apple and Twitter, four of the five platforms finally removed Alex Jones and his Infowars content from their sites and banned him. Twitter—after a CNN expose gave examples of the many times Jones also violated their TOS—eventually gave both Jones and Infowars a brief suspension on their platform as well.
As a result of repeatedly violating the various platforms' terms of service, Jones got banned. And because Jones got banned, his revenue dropped drastically.
Trump's Cyber Chief Just Made a Damning Admission About Trump's Failure to Confront Russia's Election Meddling
The Trump administration is apparently doing very little to protect the integrity of American elections from foreign interference, according to one of the country's top intelligence chiefs.
Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, failed to disclose during his closed interview with the staff of the Senate Intelligence Committee that he used his personal email accounts to conduct official White House business.
The chairman of the committee, Senator Richard Burr (R-N.C.), and the vice chair, Senator Mark Warner (D-VA), only learned of the personal email account, which Kushner used from January through August of this year, via news reports. The two men were reportedly so upset that they wrote Kushner a letter via his attorney Thursday instructing him to double-check he has turned over every pertinent document for the committee's investigation.
Facebook found itself at the center of the probe into Russia's alleged interference in last year's presidential election after reports earlier this month revealed that operatives supported by the Russian government purchased more than $150,000 worth of political ads––about 3,000 pieces of content––to spread disinformation and inflame political hostilities among the American public. Many of these ads referred to then-candidate Donald Trump as “the only viable option." The ads were shared by what looked like a grassroots American group called Secured Borders, but Congressional investigators told ABC News that the group is, in fact, a Russian ruse designed to influence voters during and after the presidential election.
Others that were purchased by Kremlin-connected accounts promoted the candidacies of Jill Stein and Bernie Sanders, seeking to sow discord among the left and apparently drive votes away from Hillary Clinton.
On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions took his turn in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee in the latest hearing into whether the Trump campaign or its associates colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.
Like his colleagues Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and NSA chief Mike Rogers before him, Sessions spent much of his testimony refusing to divulge private conversations with the President, citing privilege that Trump has never claimed.
