Comey ´acted on Russian intelligence about the Clinton email scandal even though he knew it was FAKE´

Daily Mail [UK], by Geoff Earle* Posted By: Attercliffe- Sat, 27 08 2017 04:08:14 GMT Former FBI Director James Comey acted on Russian intelligence concerning the Hillary Clinton email scandal, even though he knew the information was false. The reason Comey acted was because he worried the information would hurt the investigation and the Justice Department if it became public, CNN reports. The Russian intelligence claimed there were emails that implied then’Attorney General Loretta Lynch would make the FBI´s investigation of Clinton go away, according to the outlet. The alleged emails were between then’Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and a political operative. Comey feared the Russians would release the information and it would be impossible to

Clinton reappears at Wellesley, again at a crossroads

Associated Press, by Jocelyn Noveck? Posted By: Attercliffe- Sat, 27 21 2017 04:21:47 GMT Nearly a half’century after she first declared herself to the world as a young woman unafraid to ruffle feathers and challenge authority, Hillary Clinton was back at the very same podium at Wellesley College. And once again, she was at a crossroads in her life. The first time, she was 21, the first graduating senior ever chosen to address Wellesley’s commencement, and her bold speech challenging the remarks of the U.S. senator who spoke before her delighted classmates, dismayed the school’s president, and made it into Life magazine. The Hillary who returned to campus on Friday was a battle’scarred politician who

FLYNN: Hillary Clinton, Big Woman on Campus


Hillary Clinton remains the big woman on campus in leafy, liberal Wellesley, Massachusetts. Everywhere else votes her most likely to don her inauguration dress for the remainder of her days the way Miss Havisham forever wore her wedding dress.

Melania Trump Steps Out In Floral Jacket Worth A Year’s Income

First lady Melania Trump made a mega-colorful debut on a Sicily street Friday in a Dolce & Gabbana floral jacket worth a mind-blowing $51,500.

The silk jacket by the Italian fashion house, plastered with large 3D flowers, was featured on a Dolce & Gabbana runway just months ago.

But Americans appeared to be buzzing more about the cost than the fashion. A number of news reports compared the price to an entire year’s salary for many jobs in the U.S. — even the cost of a house in some areas. The median American family income in 2015, according to government statistics, was $55,775. 

The first lady’s style choice wasn’t quite a “let them eat cake moment.” Cake would be way more affordable.

Instagram site Whitehousewardrobe, which tracked the first lady’s clothing on her husband’s first international trip as president, drew some scathing remarks about the extravagance of the jacket as President Donald Trump proposes dismantling the economic safety net for working-class Americans.

It’s not clear if Melania Trump paid for the jacket; Dolce & Gabbana isn’t saying. It was reported earlier this year that the first lady pays for her own clothing and doesn’t accept free fashion or loaned outfits to promote designers.

The extravagance of the clothing choice got on lots of American nerves.

The Washington Post pointed out that voters erupted in 2009, when former first lady Michelle Obama wore a pair of $540 Lanvin kicks to help out at a Washington food bank.

Times have changed.

Russian ambassador told Moscow that Kushner wanted secret communications channel with Kremlin

Washington Post, by Ellen Nakashima* Posted By: KarenJ1- Sat, 27 35 2017 01:35:45 GMT Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin, using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their pre’inauguration discussions from monitoring, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports. Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in Moscow that Kushner, son’in’law and confidant to then’President’elect Trump, made the proposal during a meeting on Dec. 1 or 2 at Trump Tower, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. officials. Kislyak said Kushner suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities

Forest Service Owns ‘National Junkyard’ of Thousands of Unused Buildings

Free Beacon, by Elizabeth Harrington Posted By: nhchemist- Sat, 27 42 2017 01:42:03 GMT The Forest Service oversees thousands of buildings that are unused, many that are falling apart, full of mold, and pose safety hazards, according to a new audit. The inspector general for the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that the Forest Service has compiled over $5 billion worth of repairs to buildings, roads, dams, and trails it operates. Officials admit they are becoming a “national junkyard” by overseeing thousands of decrepit buildings the government does not need. “During our fieldwork, we observed [Forest Service] buildings that were not inspected as well as buildings that forest officials stated had structural issues, mold
