Judge jails ex-Trump campaign chair Manafort ahead of trial

Manaffort remanded to jail awaiting trialFormer Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was jailed Friday after a federal judge revoked his house arrest over allegations of witness tampering in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

The order by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson adds to the already intense pressure on President Donald Trump's former top campaign aide in the special counsel's probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election campaign and the possible coordination with Trump aides.


Mike Pence to be greeted by giant LGBT dance party during Ohio visit

Mike Pence to be greeed by LGBT dance partyMike Pence is going to a drag show on Friday. It’s not listed on his official itinerary for the trip, but when he arrives in Columbus, Ohio, he’ll be greeted by drag queens, soundsystems and hundreds of LGBT revellers.

The delightfully festive crossover comes as the US vice-president is set to speak at an event being held by at the controversial pro-Trump non-profit America First Policies, just as Pride weekend in Columbus kicks off. To commemorate the visit, the LGBT community has decided to throw him a party outside the downtown hotel where he’s speaking. In tow will be a dozen drag performers, two DJs, and speeches from politicians like Rick Neal, the gay Democratic candidate for Ohio’s 15th US congressional district.

Sarah Sanders to leave WHPress secretary Sarah Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah are both heading for the exits, according to sources inside the White House and close to the administration. Sanders, who has become a confidante of President Trump since the departure of former communications director Hope Hicks, has told friends that she plans to leave the administration at the end of the year.

Shah is also considering his exit, but he has not yet settled on an exact date. Neither Sanders nor Shah responded to repeated requests for comment before this story was published. When reached Wednesday evening, both declined to comment on the record, and Sanders tweeted that she is “honored to work for @POTUS.”



Comey Cited as ‘Insubordinate,’ but Report Finds No Bias in F.B.I. Decision to Clear Clinton

Comey deviated from normsThe former F.B.I. director James B. Comey was “insubordinate” in his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election, a critical Justice Department report concluded on Thursday.

But the report, by the department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, does not challenge the decision not to prosecute Mrs. Clinton. Nor does it conclude that political bias at the F.B.I. influenced that decision, the officials said.


Trump Family Ran ‘Persistently Illegal’ Charity, New York A.G. Says in Blockbuster Lawsuit

Trump family ran illegal charityPresident Donald Trump’s personal foundation illegally acted as an extension of his 2016 presidential campaign, according to New York’s chief law enforcement officer.

Barbara Underwood, the state’s new attorney general, alleged a widespread campaign of misuse of charitable resources in the service of Trump’s political efforts in a complaint filed in New York’s supreme court on Thursday. Her office is now seeking $2.8 million in penalties, which Trump said on Wednesday he would refuse to pay.


How 7 words in the 500-page IG report give Donald Trump all the 'deep state' ammo he wanted

REport shows no political motivation by ComeyThe massive report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz makes clear that while several FBI officials broke with bureau protocol in their handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server during the 2016 campaign, they were not motivated by political bias against Donald Trump.

That, at first glance, is the big takeaway from the long-awaited report which President Trump -- and some congressional Republicans -- had insisted would back up their claims of a "deep state" conspiracy against him led by fired FBI Director James Comey and his deputy Andrew McCabe. The report says that Comey acted inappropriately in his decision to speak out about Clinton email investigation despite not bringing charges -- among other things -- but that he did not do so with the express goal of influencing the 2016 election one way or another.

Michael Cohen, a personal lawyer and longtime fixer for President Donald Trump, is expected to break with his current legal team that is representing Cohen in a federal investigation into his business dealings, a person familiar with the matter said Wednesday.

Lawyers Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison, at the McDermott, Will & Emery law firm, have been representing Cohen in the federal investigation that led to a raid on his home, office and hotel room. The expected split has led to questions about whether Cohen will cooperate with federal prosecutors in the ongoing probe into his business dealings.
