Senate uncovers no direct evidence of Trump campaign conspiracy with Russia

No collusion found by Senate House Intel CommThe Senate Intelligence Committee has found no direct evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and Russia, according to NBC News.

The investigation is still ongoing, but committee members do say it's nearing its end.

That's where the unified message ends. From there, investigators disagree along party lines regarding the implications of a pattern of contacts they do have documented between Trump associates and Russians. Those contacts happened before, during and after Russian intelligence operatives leaked hacked Democratic emails and attacked Hillary Clinton on social media.

TVNL Comment:  Operative word is 'direct.' Stay tuned for the interpretations.

Ex-White House aide sues Trump

Cliff Sims sues Trump

Ex-White House aide Cliff Sims has sued Donald Trump, in his official capacity as president, for using his campaign as an “illegitimate cutout” in an attempt to silence the former West Wing staffer.

Sims, a former special assistant to the president who left the White House communications shop in May 2018, rose to national prominence last month with the publication of a tell-all book about his time in the administration, “Team of Vipers: My 500 Extraordinary Days in the Trump White House.”

But Trump’s campaign organization filed an arbitration claim against him last week, accusing Sims of violating the nondisclosure agreement he signed during the 2016 presidential race, according to The New York Times, which first reported on Sims’ litigation.

Ilhan Omar apologizes for anti Israel remarksRep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Monday apologized for controversial tweets critical of pro-Israel lobbying efforts after lawmakers from both parties accused her of using “anti-Semitic tropes.”

“Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes,” the freshman lawmaker said in her statement. “My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole.”

She continued: “We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize.”

National Enquirer firm asked U.S. if it should register as foreign agent for Saudis

national enquirer special edition promoting Saudi Arabia

The company that publishes the National Enquirer was concerned enough that it may have acted as an agent of Saudi Arabia that it asked the Justice Department last year whether it needed to register as a foreign lobbyist, a person with knowledge of Saudi Arabia's lobbying efforts in the U.S. confirms to NBC News.

Communications between the Justice Department and American Media Inc. offer the fullest picture to date of interactions between the tabloid publisher and the Saudis ahead of AMI's release last year of a fawning magazine about Saudi Arabia's young leader. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who has accused AMI of blackmailing him with intimate photos, has questioned whether Saudi Arabia may have been involved, a claim the kingdom denies.

Cohen testimony before Senate Intel postponed

Michael Cohen testimony postponed againPresident Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen is postponing his closed-door testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, citing medical reasons due to a recent surgery, his attorney Lanny Davis said Monday.

Cohen had been subpoenaed by the committee to testify on Feb. 12 as part of the panel’s ongoing Russian interference investigation. Davis said at the time that he planned to comply but that the parties would need to discuss the details, including his appearance date, given that Cohen had recently undergone major surgery.

“The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has accepted Mr. Cohen’s request for postponement of tomorrow’s hearing due to post surgery medical needs,” Davis said in a brief statement Monday. “A future date will be announced by the Committee.”

In Closed Hearing, a Clue About ‘the Heart’ of Mueller’s Russia Inquiry

Manafort Republican ConventionOf the few hints to emerge from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, about evidence of possible collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russia, one of the most tantalizing surfaced almost in passing in a Washington courtroom last week.

Comments by one of Mr. Mueller’s lead prosecutors, disclosed in a transcript of a closed-door hearing, suggest that the special counsel continues to pursue at least one theory: that starting while Russia was taking steps to bolster Mr. Trump’s candidacy, people in his orbit were discussing deals to end a dispute over Russia’s incursions into Ukraine and possibly give Moscow relief from economic sanctions imposed by the United States and its allies.

House Democratic Leaders Condemn Rep. Omar's Use of "Anti-Semitic Tropes," Demand Apology

House Dems condemn Oman over anti semitic statement

Rep. Ilhan Omar, a freshman Minnesota Democrat and progressive star, was publicly rebuked on Monday by House Democratic leadership for suggesting that Congressional support for Israel is bought and paid for by lobbyists, playing on old stereotypes of Jews as money-grubbing influence-peddlers.

“Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive,” wrote Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and other leadership officials. “We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments.”

TVNL Comment:  Omar has to learn that she loses credibility when she loses focus and repeats propaganda. This 'money-grubbing' idea that shows Jews as being for sale to the highest bidder is an old anti-Semitic ploy.  OPEC rates scrutiny as a far too powerful spokesgroup for Israel.  By conflating the two, Omar shows her lack of experience and knowlege of history.
