CNN: Officials Have Evidence That Trump Associates ‘Coordinated With Russians’

Coming two days after FBI director James Comey confirmed that agency has been investigating the Trump campaign’s connections with Russian interference in the election since July 2016, the CNN report is stunning but not surprising. It also follows an Associated Press report on Tuesday that Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chair, had secretly devised a plan as early as 2005 to “greatly aid” the Putin regime by influencing the U .S. government and media.

Comey Confirms Trump Investigation During Intelligence Committee Hearing

After reciting some of the troubling facts in the Trump investigation, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the committee’s ranking Democrat, observed that the likelihood of all these connections being merely coincidental is extremely small. Former White House counsel John Dean, whose 1973 testimony helped to break Nixon’s Watergate defense, went further, saying he sees the Trump White House in a familiar “cover-up mode.”

A Revealing Lunch With Legendary Republican Dirty Trickster Roger Stone

Among his greatest hits: Stone takes credit for bringing down Client 9—otherwise known as former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer—by parlaying intel he got from an off-duty prostitute he met in a sex club into an FBI tip about a Democrat who hired hookers and never removed his socks. Before that, he organized the so-called Brooks Brothers riot in the Miami-Dade County clerk’s office that stopped the 2000 election recount and arguably gave America the presidency of George W. Bush

Donald Trump and the Alt-Right

How Donald Trump Took Hate Groups Mainstream

Trump did not become the object of white nationalist affection simply because his positions reflect their core concerns. Extremists made him their chosen candidate and now hail him as “Emperor Trump” because he has amplified their message on social media—and, perhaps most importantly, has gone to great lengths to avoid distancing himself from the racist right.
