Monday.  What could possibly go wrong on a Monday?

WIKILEAKS AND TRUMP JR CORRESPONDED FOR OVER A YEAR

The Atlantic reports on multiple Twitter DM conversations between Julian Assange and Donald Trump, Jr.  These conversations were handed over to one of the Congressional committees digging into the Russian Affair.

Some of the more interesting tidbits from this include Assange admitting to hacking the putintrump.org website by guessing their password, coordinating information drops, asking for dirt on Donald Trump for them to leak to look “more impartial”, advised him to not concede if he lost on election day, and for Trump to recommend that Assange should be appointed as the Ambassador from Australia.

After the first series of DM’s on September 20, 2016, Donnie Jr. emailed Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Brad Parscale, and Jared Kushner.  Jared then forwarded this mail to Hope Hicks, who was Trump’s Personal Assistant at that time.

Need more proof that President Donald Trump was in the loop?

“Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us,” WikiLeaks went on, pointing Trump Jr. to the link wlsearch.tk, which it said would help Trump’s followers dig through the trove of stolen documents and find stories. “There’s many great stories the press are missing and we’re sure some of your follows [sic] will find it,” WikiLeaks went on. “Btw we just released Podesta Emails Part 4.”

Trump Jr. did not respond to this message. But just 15 minutes after it was sent, as The Wall Street Journal’s Byron Tau pointed out, Donald Trump himself tweeted, “Very little pick-up by the dishonest media of incredible information provided by WikiLeaks. So dishonest! Rigged system!”

FIFTH WOMAN ACCUSES ROY MOORE OF IMPROPER BEHAVIOR, SEXUAL ASSAULT

Another woman has stepped forward to accuse Roy Moore of coming after her while she was a teenager.  This time, he wasn’t quite so gentlemanly, as he tried to force her to give him felatio in his car, and then threatened her when she didn’t.

By the way, he signed her yearbook.

JD GORDON LAWYERS UP

I’m going to make a list of everyone who has lawyered up, and add this member of the NatSec team to it.  He’s one of the people that George Papadopoulos worked with and briefed.  Or was it Carter Page?  Or both?  I think both at this point.

UNQUALIFIED JUDGE PICK HUSBAND OF McGAHN’S CHIEF OF STAFF

The New York Times reports that Brett Talley, a 36 year old who’s never tried a case as a judge and yet is still up for a Federal Judge appointment, is married to Ann Donaldson, Don McGahn’s Chief of Staff.

Nothing like a little nepotism now and then.

CLAPPER DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT PAPADOPOULOS MEETING WHEN HE MADE HIS ASSESSMENT ABOUT RUSSIA

James Clapper didn’t know about the June 9 meeting, or George Papadopoulos until recently.

The former Director of National Intelligence didn’t know about these meetings, but still knew enough to know that there was some serious conspiratorial stuff going on.

7 MAJOR REPUBLICAN DONORS FEATURED IN PARADISE PAPERS

Ever wonder who’s behind the push for the GOP tax cut plan?  Even better, why they want to remove the passthrough tax?

Here’s a list of the people that are major political donors for the Republican Party, and also hoard money offshore.

TRUMP BEING PLAYED BY PUTIN

As if anyone was surprised, Trump is being played by Putin.  This comes as a shock to …. absolutely no one.

PODESTA GROUP CLOSING

Being associated with a known money launderer and lobbying for a foreign goverment without FARA registration is bad for business.

The Podesta Group, one of DC’s largest lobbying firms, will be closing at the end of the year.  They have been swept up into the Russian Investigation due to their ties with Manafort Davis.  They lobbied on behalf of the Party of Regions in Ukraine, Putin’s puppet party.

RUSSIAN MONEY IN SILICON VALLEY

Here’s a good write up on how deep Russian money is tied into Silicon Valley.

Just in case anyone wonders why Russian Trolls seem to flourish on Social Media, but their opponents

ALL OF THE KNOWN MEETINGS BETWEEN TEAM TRUMP AND RUSSIA

The Washington Post has your back.  Beware, there’s about 30 contacts confirmed.  So much for a nothingburger.

RUSSIAN BOTS STICKING UP FOR HANNITY

Some conservatives are smashing their Keurig coffee machines.  This is stupid, so let me sum up…

Sean Hannity defended Roy Moore and his child molesting behavior.  People started a boycott against Hannity’s advertisers for supporting him supporting a child molester.  Keurig pulled their advertising.  Russian Twitter Bots started a Boycott Keurig hashtag.  This inspired Sean’s fans who are cool with child molestation to smash their expensive coffee machines.

I heard Apple, Google, Facebook, and Twitter are also pulling their advertising because of this.  Feel free to break phones and delete accounts.

MOORE THREATENS TO SUE WASHINGTON POST

Go right ahead.  It worked GREAT for Bill Cosby.

PAPADOPOULOS

Business Insider reports that George emailed Stephen Miller the day after his meeting with The Professor.  Miller was the “High Level Senior Advisor” from the indictments.

He’s screwed.

That’s it for today.

Thank you, and have a good one.
