Russian Officials Overheard Discussing
Trump Associates Before Campaign Began

Wall Street Journal, by Shane Harris

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/13/2017 7:09:12 AM

WASHINGTON—Investigators are re-examining conversations detected by U.S. intelligence agencies in spring 2015 that captured Russian government officials discussing associates of Donald Trump, according to current and former U.S. officials, a move prompted by revelations that the president’s eldest son met with a Russian lawyer last year. In some cases, the Russians in the overheard conversations talked about meetings held outside the U.S. involving Russian government officials and Trump business associates or advisers, these people said. Russian officials are routinely monitored by U.S. intelligence agencies,

2016, when most thought Trump´s "campaign" was a publicity stunt? These guys are truly clutching at straws.

There are many questions that need to be asked. Why would a US citizen have his overseas phone conversations tapped, recorded, and stored by our "intelligence agencies" (NSA)? Under what law or executive order (0bama) was it allowed? Doesn´t it require a FISA court finding to be approved? Read article below to see that President Trump challenged to know why 0bama was tapping him which this article clearly acknowledges. NSA has some real explaining to do, including justification. Mr.Trump, the Wall Street Journal and the Senate "witch hunt hearings" have given you the smoking gun. Use it.

FTA (by CNN): "But in the coming days, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court -- known as the FISA court or FISC -- will get more attention after President Donald Trump claimed he was wiretapped during the Obama administration."

"What is the FISA court, and why is it so secretive?"

I didn´t realize it was a crime for American businessmen to meet with foreign government officials to discuss doing business in their country.

I have done that in countries in Asia and Europe.

I guess I can never run for public office -- as a Republican.

Teflon Don confounds Democrats

Democrats tried attacking Donald Trump as unfit for the presidency. They’ve made the case that he’s ineffective, pointing to his failure to sign a single major piece of legislation into law after eight months in the job. They’ve argued that Trump is using the presidency to enrich himself and that his campaign was in cahoots with Russia. None of it is working. Data from a range of focus groups and internal polls in swing states paint a difficult picture for the Democratic Party heading into the 2018 midterms and 2020 presidential election. It suggests that Democrats are naive if they believe

As airlines pack seats tighter than ever, the tests supposed to show that passengers can get out alive in a crash are woefully out of date. The FAA won’t make the results public, and a court warns there is “a plausible life-and-death safety concern.” For years the airlines have been allowed to steadily shrink the size of coach class seats and the space between seat rows without regulators considering the impact of this on safety. A Daily Beast investigation has found: • The tests carried out to ensure that all the passengers can safely exit a cabin in an emergency are dangerously

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — In a state built on air conditioning, millions of Florida residents now want to know one thing: When will the power be back on? Hurricane Irma’s march across Florida and into the Southeast triggered one of the bigger blackouts in U.S. history, plunging as many as 13 million people into the dark as the storm dragged down power lines and blew out transformers. It also shattered the climate-controlled bubbles that enable people to live here despite the state’s heat, humidity and insects.

In the beginning of the 2016 presidential race, most conservatives like myself, had their own favorites and very few considered Donald Trump as one. Mine was Rick Perry followed by Marco Rubio once Gov. Perry dropped out. As the race proceeded and Trump continued to mow them all down, I was dismayed at how the debates seemed to be fixed by the GOP establishment and the media. Then a strange thing happened. I started listening to what Donald Trump was saying during his campaign. My brother Joe who was battling late stage cancer called me up one night speaking enthusiastically about how

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump Jr. told Senate investigators on Thursday that he set up a June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer because he was intrigued that she might have damaging information about Hillary Clinton, saying it was important to learn about Mrs. Clinton’s “fitness” to be president. But nothing came of the Trump Tower meeting, he said, and he was adamant that he never colluded with the Russian government’s campaign to disrupt last year’s presidential election. During five hours of questioning, investigators for the Senate Judiciary Committee pressed Mr. Trump on numerous topics related to the

LOS ANGELES - Graydon Carter, the longtime editor of Conde Nast´s culture magazine "Vanity Fair," will be stepping down in December after 25 years at the helm, the publication said on Thursday.

The Justice Department announced this week that there was no evidence that Trump Tower was wiretapped, as President Trump alleged. OK, that almost settles the issue. I’m still waiting for the New York Times — the self-proclaimed “paper of record” — to explain its Jan. 20 front page story that had the headline “Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides.” Times reporters were already embarrassed when former FBI director James Comey testified before Congress that one of the paper’s major stories was dead wrong. In the Jan. 20 story, the Times said “intercepted communications” were being used as part of the case

For the first time in seven years, three hurricanes are spinning simultaneously through the Atlantic basin. Hurricane Katia is the furthest west of the ‘canes, and was strengthening early Thursday in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico, where it’s expected to hover, battering Mexico. East of Katia, Hurricane Irma was rampaging through the Caribbean while Hurricane Jose was furthest east, out in the open Atlantic Ocean, where it is not expected to cause much damage. CNN Weather reported that it is the first time since 2010 that three hurricanes are active in the Atlantic.

Dear fellow Democrats: To judge from the polls and personal experience, many of you are somewhere between lukewarm and ice cold toward Mayor de Blasio.

In the most significant escalation yet in the wrangling between Congress and the FBI over the Trump dossier, the House Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed the bureau and the Justice Department for documents relating to the dossier, the FBI´s relationship with dossier author Christopher Steele, and the bureau´s possible role in supporting what began as an opposition research project against candidate Donald Trump in the final months of last year´s presidential campaign. The subpoenas are an indication of growing frustration inside the committee over the FBI and Justice Department´s lack of cooperation in the Trump-Russia investigation.

Moreover, it had yet to finish interviewing sixteen other key witnesses, including Cheryl Mills, Bryan Pagliano, Heather Samuelson, Justin Cooper and John Bentel.

Last month, she caused an uproar when she donned high heels while to visit areas struck by Hurricane Harvey in Texas—but wore similar shoes on a follow-up trip to the disaster-struck state earlier this month.

Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened” reads like a therapy session in which the losing presidential candidate works through the five stages of grief in real time. There’s plenty of anger, oodles of denial, bouts of depression, some desperate bargaining and finally a modicum of acceptance. But not before she’s thrown everyone from President Obama to Bernie Sanders under the bus for her loss to Donald Trump. Among her many laments? “I don’t think the press did their job,” as she tells Vox’s Ezra Klein. Expanding on that, she told him the press obsessed over Trump because she was talking policy while he was “good

Facing harsh criticism, a Harvard dean said early Friday morning that he was revoking his invitation to Chelsea Manning, a former United States soldier convicted of leaking classified information, to be a visiting fellow at the university. The sudden turnabout by the Harvard Kennedy School came after a day of intense backlash over the university’s announcement on Wednesday that Ms. Manning would become a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics this school year. Douglas W. Elmendorf, the dean of the Harvard Kennedy School, said that while the university encourages a diversity of opinions and does not shy from controversy,

After months of denials, the pretext for Susan Rice’s eavesdropping on Trump officials has finally been made public. It had been widely known that Obama’s former National Security Adviser had contrived to unmask the names of top Trump officials who had been spied on by the administration. And the same media that still treats Watergate as the Great American Scandal had claimed that there was nothing “improper” in an Obama loyalist eavesdropping on members of the opposition party. Every time Obama Inc. was caught eavesdropping on opposition politicians, it presented its spin in a carefully packaged “scoop” to a major media

John McCain is joining a bipartisan push to block President Donald Trump from banning transgender people from serving in the military. Mr Trump issued a moratorium last month instructing the military to stop providing gender reassignment surgeries for transgender troops, and to stop plans to recruit those troops. That decision came following an order from his predecessor that instructed the military to begin considering programmes to allow transgender people to serve openly and without worry in the military.
