Republicans, no Democrats, to attend meeting on FBI campaign surveillance: White House

No Dems to attend meeting on FBI surveillanceTwo Republican lawmakers, and no Democrats, are expected to attend a meeting that has been scheduled for Thursday to allow them to review classified information relating to claims the FBI used an informant to gather information on Trump’s presidential campaign, the White House said on Tuesday.

House of Representatives Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, both Republicans, are expected to attend, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a regular news briefing. FBI Director Christopher Wray, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Acting Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General Ed O’Callaghan are also expected to attend, she said.

TVNL Comment: This is, by far, the most egregious move by the felon in the White House, whose conspiracy-theory demands on the DOJ are a frontal attack on our democracy.  Wake up, America.

Trump Team Moves To Lift Ban On ‘Extreme’ Hunting Tactics In Alaska

Trump team moves to lift ban on extreme hunting

The Trump administration on Monday proposed rolling back a 2015 rule that bans aggressive predator control tactics in national preserves in Alaska, including shooting bear cubs and wolf pups in their dens ― a move immediately blasted by environmental groups.

The proposal, slated to be published Tuesday in the Federal Register, would amend the National Park Service’s current regulations to again allow for controversial sport hunting and trapping techniques on roughly 20 million acres of federal lands in Alaska. The park service, part of the Department of the Interior, said lifting the prohibitions would increase hunting opportunities on national preserve land, as Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke called for in a pair of secretarial orders last year.

‘Too inconvenient’: Trump goes rogue on phone security

"Too inconvenient" Trump says re phone security

President Donald Trump uses a White House cellphone that isn’t equipped with sophisticated security features designed to shield his communications, according to two senior administration officials — a departure from the practice of his predecessors that potentially exposes him to hacking or surveillance.

The president, who relies on cellphones to reach his friends and millions of Twitter followers, has rebuffed staff efforts to strengthen security around his phone use, according to the administration officials.

TVNL Comment:  You couldn't invent this level of idiocy.

RNC pays half million to Hope Hicks' attorney

The Republican National Committee paid $450,000 in April to the law firm representing Hope Hicks in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, new public disclosures show.

Hicks retained Robert Trout of Washington litigation firm Trout Cacheris & Janis as investigations into links between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian officials heated up in the fall of 2017.

The RNC and the Trump campaign previously acknowledged paying legal bills for Trump and others involved in the Russia investigation, including the president’s family members. In 2017, the RNC spent $230,000 to cover the president’s legal fees and spent close to $200,000 on Donald Trump Jr.'s legal fees.

Rudolph GuilianiPresident Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani made up the Sept. 1 deadline he said special counsel Robert Mueller had placed on Mueller's investigation into whether Trump obstructed the Russia investigation, a source familiar with the investigation told Reuters.

The source called the deadline “entirely made up” and “another apparent effort to pressure the special counsel to hasten the end of his work,” Reuters reported.

The source went on to say that Mueller will wrap up the probe when “he thinks he's turned over every rock.”
