Mueller subpoenas Cambridge Analytica staffer.

NEW: Cambridge Analytica employee who worked on Brexit is subpoeaned by Robert Mueller. This is BIG. Brittany Kaiser - who sat next to @arron_banks at LeaveEU launch - becomes subject of Mueller inquiry into Trump-Russia collusion 💣🔥🎆

A spokesman for Brittany Kaiser, former business development director for Cambridge Analytica – which collapsed after the Observer revealed details of its misuse of Facebook data – confirmed that she had been subpoenaed by special counsel Robert Mueller, and was cooperating fully with his investigation.

He added that she was assisting other US congressional and legal investigations into the company’s activities and had voluntarily turned over documents and data.

Kaiser, who gave evidence to the UK parliament last April in which she claimed Cambridge Analytica had carried out in-depth work for Leave.EU, is the second individual connected to the firm subpoenaed by the special counsel. The Electoral Commission has said its investigation into Leave.EU found no evidence that the campaign “received donations or paid for services from Cambridge Analytica …beyond initial scoping work”.

Damian Collins, chairman of parliament’s inquiry into fake news, said it was “no surprise” that Kaiser was under scrutiny by Mueller because “her work connected her to WikiLeaks, Cambridge Analytica and [its parent company] SCL, the Trump campaign, Leave.EU and Arron Banks”.

"Kilimnik...reportedly told associates in August 16 he helped play a role in [GOP] platform changes

Konstantin Kilimnik, a longtime Manafort associate who Mueller believes has ties to Russian intelligence, reportedly told associates in August 2016 he helped play a role in the platform change.


"Mr. KILIMNIK doesn't have to be in the government or even be an active spy to be a link" between the Kremlin & the TRUMP campaign, says Judge Amy Berman Jackson, adding the interactions between MANAFORT & KILIMNIK are "at the undisputed core" of MUELLER's probe.



Hyperbole anyone?

At arrival in emergency HQ in Florida, Trump supporter Brant Bloom tells president: “...there was Moses, Jesus and President Donald Trump and if you weren’t elected our world, not just our country, would have been destroyed.”


TPM: You want a "smocking gun" ? How about this:

The investigation concerns Trump campaign collusion with Russia

Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump hired multiple people who had current ties to Russian operatives, politicos and intelligence.

ALL of those people met with those Russian operatives during the campaign.

ALL of those people then LIED about their meetings with those Russian operatives.

Nearly ALL of the indictments so far, of these campaign operatives, have to do with these meetings or lies about them

Add to this, that a “peace plan” was discussed (quid pro quo)

Add to this, that stolen emails were shared from Guccifer 2.0, through Wikileaks, to Trump’s campaign

Add to this, that Donald J. Trump publicly asked Russia to find Hillary’s emails and that very same day, Russians hacked her accounts for the first time.

Add to this, that releases of these stolen emails were coordinated with the campaign

Add to this that President Trump has REPEATEDLY lied about all of this, and CONTINUES to “believe” Putin’s lie that they had nothing to do with the hacking



& more from Emptywheel:


First, we’re only seeing material relating to half of Manafort’s cooperation. In his declaration on the breach determination, FBI Agent Jeffrey Weiland described Manafort’s cooperation to include 14 sessions:

3 pre-plea proffer sessions: September 11, 12, and 13
9 debriefing sessions: September 20, 21, 25, 26, 27, October 1, October 5, October 11, and October 16
2 grand jury appearances: October 26 and November 2
If I’ve tracked everything properly, the descriptions of Manafort’s lies only include material from some of those sessions:

3 pre-plea proffer sessions: September 11, 12, and 13
5 debriefing sessions: September 20, 21, October 1, October 5, and October 16
1 grand jury appearance: October 26
That means there are three debriefing sessions and a grand jury appearance we haven’t heard anything about yet:

3 debriefing sessions: September 25, 26, 27, and October 11
1 grand jury appearance: November 2



just in — a source at the Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach just texted me this photo taken a short time ago.

omelette bar:

Per pool, Trump has arrived at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, FL.

This is Trump's 169th day at a Trump golf club and 224th day at a Trump property as president.
