Lock Her Up? Donald Trump Weighs in on Ivanka Emails

Trump made the comment in response to a Washington Post story that said Ivanka Trump used a personal email account to send messages to White House aides and cabinet officials. Trump says there was no cover-up attempt and the story has been amped up by “Fake News.”

Number Of Targets Of Suspected Explosive Devices Grows While Trump Continues Negative Rhetoric By Blaming The Media

(Washington, DC) — The number of high profile targets of suspected explosive devices is growing.

Others who have received suspected explosive devices include former President Obama, former First Lady Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Eric Holder and former CIA Director John Brennan.

Trump Admits Son Met Russians To Get Clinton Information

(SL) – President Trump is admitting his son, Donald Trump Jr, met with a Russian attorney to get damaging information about Hillary Clinton during the campaign for the White House.

In a tweet yesterday, Trump wrote that his son’s meeting in June of 2016 was “to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics — and it went nowhere.” Trump ended with “I did not know about it!” Trump’s son-in-law and now White House adviser Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort also attended the meeting.

Podesta: Comey’s Errors Gave Trump The White House

(SW) – The chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign says former FBI Director James Comey’s mishandling of the Clinton email investigation gave Donald Trump the White House. While speaking on MSNBC’s “All In” last night, former Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta said Comey cost the Democratic nominee the election because of his “egregious errors of judgment.”

He’s referring to Comey’s announcement just before the election that his agency was investigating more Clinton emails. Podesta’s comments come after the release of the Justice Department Inspector General’s report that concluded Comey was insubordinate, but not politically bias, and deviated from standard investigative procedures while overseeing the Clinton investigation.

Clinton On Comey’s Use Of Gmail: “But My Emails”

(Washington, DC) –  Hillary Clinton has just three words to respond to a Department of Justice investigation into the actions of FBI Chief James Comey in 2016. Clinton retweeted a report that said the investigation found that Comey had used a personal gmail account to conduct official FBI business.

Clinton responded on Twitter by saying, quote, “but my emails.” Comey was in charge of the FBI as it looked into Clinton’s use of a private email system during her time as Secretary of State. At the time, Comey said no evidence had been found that the law had been broken, but said Clinton was careless in her handling of classified information.

Those findings came late in the 2016 election cycle, and Clinton has laid part of the blame for her loss on Comey.

U.S. Grand Jury Indicts 13 Russians For Election-Related Fraud

(Washington, DC) — Thirteen Russian nationals are being indicted for election-related fraud in the 2016 presidential campaign. In a Justice Department news briefing today, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the defendants waged “information warfare” in the U.S. Rosenstein stressed there is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election. But the effort was definitely there. With damaging releases aimed to tarnish Hillary Clinton’s chances.

Rosenstein said Russians violated U.S. laws to interfere with the American political process.

He noted that the Russians recruited Americans to stage rallies but said the Americans were not aware of the Moscow connection.

A Politico article by Cristiano Lima says,  Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office on Friday unveiled an indictment against 13 Russian nationals and three foreign entities on charges relating to the 2016 election meddling.

The indictment, which includes conspiracy to defraud the United States and aggravated identity theft, depicts an elaborate web of initiatives aimed at influencing the presidential race.

Here is a look at some of the most startling findings from the Department of Justice announcement.trump-russia-interactiveRussians paid Trump rally-goers to simulate Clinton jailing

According to the document, the Russian nationals and their associates paid people attending pro-Donald Trump rallies in Florida to carry out numerous “tasks,” including asking one to construct a cage at an event and another to dress up as Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton behind bars.

“Defendants and their co-conspirators asked one U.S. person to build a cage on a flatbed truck and another U.S. person to wear a costume portraying Clinton in a prison uniform,” the indictment read.

Calls for Clinton to be jailed were persistent at Trump rallies throughout 2016, with crowds often breaking out into chants of “Lock her up!” In local reports from 2016 rallies in Florida, rally-goers can be seen staging Clinton displays with caged mannequins.
