#Kilimnik becomes focus on grand jury investigation

_The 31-page filing gives an unprecedented window into Mueller's work with the grand jury, which is typically secret. It's also the first confirmation from prosecutors that Kilimnik is still central to the grand jury's efforts.__

Despite being heavily redacted, some details of the communications are discernable. Manafort tried to get people appointed to the administration at the start of Drumpf's presidency, according to Gates, and was talking to someone whose name is redacted through February 2018 when Gates pleaded guilty.

Barr announced to declare #Mueller's final report to "confidential

But Barr, testifying at his confirmation hearing, said that under his interpretation of the special counsel regulations, he didn’t believe that Mueller’s final report was required to be made public. Barr said he believed Mueller’s report would be “confidential,” but that as attorney general he would issue a public summary of its findings.

Why wouldn't he like to see the report to be available to everyone interested, especially the press? Press members may be able to read it, but not to publish it. I think that it would be nicer to know that Trump's betrayal on the American people should be visible to all of us.

#Chechnya starts raid on #LGBT community

In an interview with the BBC last year, Mr #Kadyrov said the allegations were "an invention by foreign agents" or created by activists looking for money.

Homophobia is widespread in the highly conservative and predominantly Muslim Russian republic.

Activists believe dozens have been taken in recent weeks to a detention centre near #Argun - a town 20km (13 miles) from the city of #Grozny.

"We know of around 40 people who have been detained, but it may be more. It's also unclear at this point how many have since been freed. We know that does happen, when people are handed over to their families to 'deal with'," Igor Kochetkov, the head of the group, told the BBC.

Shall we contemplate subpoenaing the principal witness in the Russian affaire?

Concern focuses most on Drumpf’s meetings with Putin at the Helsinki summit in July 2018. The Russian president, and the American president helped into office by the Russian president, met for two hours with no aides. No agenda was published before the meeting, no communiqué issued afterward. The Russian side later claimed that a number of agreements had been reached at the summit. Nobody on the American side seemed to know whether this was true. At a press conference four days after the meeting, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said, “I’m not in a position to either understand fully or talk about what happened in Helsinki.”

We are facing very possibly the worst scandal in the history of the U.S. government.

Conspirative breakfast targeted by Special Counsel Robert #Mueller

Now Nunes—a key figure behind the right-wing counter narrative that Drumpf is at the mercy of a “Deep State” conspiracy—finds at least one meeting that he himself attended under the special counsel’s scrutiny.

Some of those who attended the dinner also attended the Drumpf Hotel breakfast, two individuals with direct knowledge of the events told The Daily Beast. Country officials invited to the breakfast included Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Israel, Lithuania, Estonia, Denmark, Japan, Angola and others. Former Kazakh Ambassador Kairat Umarov attended the breakfast, as did two senior Qatari officials.

Is Trump a foreign agent to Russia?

During the 2016 campaign, Drumpf repeatedly praised Putin, giving him an “A for leadership,” and insisted that Putin’s killing of political enemies was no worse than ours: “There are a lot of killers. Do you think our country is so innocent?” Then, as president, he refused to endorse sanctions against Russia imposed by Congress, has still never blamed Russia for its proven meddling in the 2016 election, and suggested Russia had every right to seize Crimea. All of which led the FBI to conclude that not only Drumpf aides Paul Manafort, Carter Page and George Papadopoulos were colluding with Russia, but, perhaps, so was Drumpf himself. That question of collusion, of course, was soon taken up by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Very good, comrade Drumpfsky, you do very good for Mother Russia. Now, disclose every folders on Russian foreign agents and targets to Kremlin, so that we can delete them to ascertain our mission to undermine DC.

Incarcerated ex-marine and tourist Paul #Whelan officially charged with espionage two days ago

“I don’t speak Russian but reports of Ms. Zakharova’s press briefing today suggest she made the first official confirmation that Paul was charged with espionage since the December 28 press release [announcing his arrest],” said an email sent to reporters by Whelan’s brother David. Indeed, charges were laid under Article 276 of Russia’s criminal code, Zakharova told reporters at a televised news conference Friday (Jan. 11), which was confirmed by ABC News.

Zherebenkov is on vacation in the Dominican Republic at the moment, as reported by the Daily Beast, and said there isn’t much he can do for his client just yet. “The prison is closed for the holidays, anyway; the investigators will begin introducing us to the case on January 14,” Zherebenkov told the Daily Beast.

On Donnie and the #FBI's Russia investigation

The reports -- from The New York Times, CNN and The Washington Post -- took intrigue about Drumpf and Russia to a surreal new level, even after two years of shocking developments borne out of Moscow's election meddling in 2016.

_"I'm not keeping anything under wraps. I couldn't care less. I mean, it's so ridiculous. These people make it up," Drumpf said.__

No, we don't. It's all real, the entire mess is real.

If, as the White House says, Drumpf has no compromised relationship with Russia, why does he go out of his way to hide his interactions with Putin? Does he perhaps not trust his own team not to leak details of their meetings?

Two things are necessary to understand it: First of all: He doesn't trust his team because even his own adminisitration doesn't trust him anymore. He believes that all of his people surrounding him are under cahoots with the investigation, so he avoids interacting with them. Seco... show more

Russian occupation forces in Donbas focus their efforts mainly on the Mariupol direction and in the Azov Sea area, Commander of Ukraine's Joint Forces Serhiy Nayev says. "Russian occupation forces are not attacking, but this doesn't mean that they ceased their attempts to provoke further conflict," Nayev said in an interview with Austria's Wiener Zeitung, according to the JFO HQ press service.

NATO, Trump and Putin - GeoEconomics - all about Dollars Oil and Gas

First of all i think it’s pretty rude how Trump bosses around the NATO-General.


Yes you are right Mr Trump – Germany alone spends 50 Billion € a year just on oil imports.

That’s lot of money that could be saved – if Saudi oil AND Russian gas could be replaced with renewable hydrogen. (and it can!)

NATO is in fact under US control (as far as i know).

If Trump wants to change US foreign policy to save money – Let’s dismantle NATO! PLEASE! GO AHEAD! PLEASE REMOVE THE US-NUKES FROM EUROPE AND GERMANY! Thank you!

Orange Hitler is a fucking traitor. LOCK HIM UP. Then empower the DHS to GO AFTER the fucking Nazis and the fascists that are trying to recruit on social networks or forming street gangs of thugs like the "Proud Boys". Arrest every last one of those mother fuckers and throw the book at them - give them the maximum amount of prison time.

Then, we need to work to break up and find the enabling criminals in the fifth column that is the Republican Party, and END their vote rigging, their voter suppression, and their gerrymandering. Then work to change/end the slavery-era Electoral College that keeps empowering rednecks to choose presidents over most of America. It gave us the fucking idiot W, and it gave us the even worse Orange Hitler.

F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia

[An excerpt]
WASHINGTON — In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.

The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.

The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr. Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has long been publicly known: whether his firing of Mr. Comey constituted obstruction of justice.
