Special counsel Robert Mueller is probing Israeli businessman Joel Zamel after it was revealed he met with Donald Trump Jr. prior to the 2016 presidential election, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The Journal reviewed a subpoena regarding Zamel's work, including his crowdsourced analysis firm known as Wikistrat and a private intelligence firm known as the Psy Group.

The Psy Group reportedly conducts private intelligence work and is a competitor of Israeli intelligence firm Black Cube, which is linked to filmmaker Harvey Weinstein who reportedly used the firm to block investigations into his alleged sexual abuses.

The group also touted its "strong operating capabilities within the ‘Deep Web’ and Darknet (often referred to as the ‘Dark Side’ of the Internet),” the Journal reported.

Holy Shit .... I just watched 3 minutes* of Fox News w/Roger Kimball of the New Criterion

Did you know that Tom Wolfe really was a person that would have supported Fox News
and he was against liberal memes? I have never seen Mr. Kimball before but he could
not have been more wrong about Tom Wolfe because Mr. Wolfe was journalist @ his core
and journalism and Fox News are not anywhere near the same thing.

I really worry about people who watch Fox News and do not know that they are being
lied to 24/7.


* 3 minutes was my limit.


Trump Jr. told investigators he can't recall if he discussed Russian meeting with his father

Trump Jr. told investigators he can't recall if he discussed Russian meeting with his father

WASHINGTON -- After setting up a meeting with Russian agents to discuss what he thought would be incriminating information on Hillary Clinton in June 2016, Donald Trump Jr. made an 11-minute phone call to a blocked phone number, according to a transcript of his interview with Senate investigators released Wednesday.

Trump Jr. says he can't remember who he spoke to that night. But his father, now President Trump, used a blocked phone number at his home at the time, according to former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

At a rally the next day, the presidential candidate alluded to information his campaign was gathering on Hillary Clinton. He said he was planning to give a "major speech" the following week "discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons," he said.

"I think you're going to find it very informative and very, very interesting," Trump said. "I wonder if the press will want to attend, who knows."

LA Times Trump went from 'America first' to saving jobs in China. This could be why

http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-trump-china-zte-20180515-story.html

President Trump's stunning change in stance toward a Chinese telecom-equipment maker that his administration recently sanctioned drew widespread rebuke Monday, even as it seemed to increase the likelihood that the U.S. and China could soon pull back from the brink of a trade war.

China's top economic official, Vice Premier Liu He, is expected to arrive in Washington on Tuesday for several days of meetings with senior Trump administration officials. And Trump's tweet Sunday that he and Chinese President Xi Jinping are working together to help save ZTE could be a sign that Trump is looking for a potential deal to avert massive tariffs threatened by both sides.

Scott Paul, president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, called Trump's tweet on ZTE "indefensible," given that the company had been found breaking U.S. laws and was considered by many to be a security threat to the U.S.

There was also speculation that Trump's step may have been in exchange for Beijing's support for the president as he gears up to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore.

White House refuses comment about Sadler's McCain remark

Source: CNN

(CNN)The White House on Friday refused either to acknowledge or disown a purported barb about Sen. John McCain's health by a communications staffer.

Instead, press secretary Sarah Sanders suggested questions about the incident were meant to sow discord among President Donald Trump's aides.

snip

Kelly Sadler, a special assistant who handles surrogate communications, told other staffers during a meeting Thursday that McCain's opposition to Trump's CIA director nominee, Gina Haspel, does not matter because "he's dying anyway," a White House official told CNN.

snip


"Certainly there is not a tone set here," Sanders said. "We have a respect for all Americans. That is something we try to do in both word and action."

ATTN Ms. Sanders you really need some gays in your life.

NPR Kelly Sadler: McCain Irrelevant, 'He's Dying Anyway,' White House Official Reportedly Says

Turns out she is a right wing hack from the Washington Times.



********


A day after Sen. John McCain urged his Senate colleagues to reject Gina Haspel as CIA director because she had overseen torture of detainees, a White House official reportedly mocked the ailing Arizona Republican, saying his opinion "doesn't matter" because "he's dying anyway."

snip

McCain, 81, who is suffering from incurable brain cancer, issued a statement on Wednesday calling Haspel's role in torture "disturbing" and "disqualifying" for the top CIA job.

The White House did not dispute the remark attributed to Sadler, but said in a statement, "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this difficult time."

The reported remark by Sadler, a former opinion writer for the conservative Washington Times, came on the same day that a retired three-star general told Fox Business Network that the torture McCain endured as a prisoner of war in Vietnam "worked."

D. Kos: Donald Trump gave a huge gift to Vladimir Putin, and may have saved the Russian government

Female host says: "Looks like we found it. Trump is withdrawing US from the Iran nuclear deal. Oil prices should go up, which is good for us."

Cohen wasn't getting income for consulting work*.

Cohen was getting paid all those millions of $s for consulting work he was taking bribes to sell access to or
influence w/Donal Trump and no doubt Trump was getting the lion’s share of that dirty money.


BTW but really what about Hillary’s email server?
