Alexander Nix, Pres. of Cambridge Analytica

The CEO of Cambridge Analytica, the data firm used by Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, boasted to an undercover reporter about the company’s use of honey traps and secretive campaigning tactics to influence elections around the world.

Supreme Court keeps revised Pennsylvania congressional map in place

SCOTUS rejects GOP challenge to PA district mapsPennsylvania Republicans were handed a pair of defeats Monday in their quest to keep old congressional maps in place for the 2018 midterms, potentially giving Democrats a boost when it comes to winning back the House in November.

The U.S. Supreme Court declined a request from Republican leaders to put the new congressional district map, imposed last month by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, on hold. Earlier Monday, in a separate case, a panel of federal judges dismissed a legal challenge by Republican congressmen to the new map.


Kushner’s Company Regularly Filed False Work Permits in New York

Kushner company regularly filed false work records

The Kushner Companies, the family business that Jared Kushner ran before joining his father-in-law in the White House, regularly filed false paperwork with New York City regulators, according to the Associated Press.

The more than 80 work permits, which applied to about 34 buildings in New York from 2013 to 2016, declared that the company had no rent-regulated tenants in the buildings, when in fact they had hundreds. The practice allegedly allowed Kushner Companies to quickly gentrify buildings even if they had rent-regulated apartments. None of the documents have Kushner’s signature on them, but were instead signed by the Kushner Companies’s chief operating officer or another employee.

McCabe has one trick left to save his $60,000 pension

When Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe late Friday night, the 22-year intelligence veteran lost his pension two days before he was set to retire.

Many lawmakers saw the Trump administration's act as callous, and now four Democratic members of the House of Representatives have offered McCabe jobs in a last-ditch effort to save his retirement benefits. CNN estimated his pension at $60,000 a year.


Sources Contradict Sessions’ Testimony He Opposed Russia Outreach

Sources contradict Sessions claim he opposed Russian meetingU.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ testimony that he opposed a proposal for President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign team to meet with Russians has been contradicted by three people who told Reuters they have spoken about the matter to investigators with Special Counsel Robert Mueller or congressional committees.

Sessions testified before Congress in November 2017 that he “pushed back” against the proposal made by former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos at a March 31, 2016 campaign meeting. Then a senator from Alabama, Sessions chaired the meeting as head of the Trump campaign’s foreign policy team.

McCabe kept memos on Trump conversations

Andrew McCabe kept notes on conversations with Trump

Andrew McCabe, the former FBI deputy director fired on Friday night, kept memos detailing his interactions with President Donald Trump, according to a source familiar with the matter.

McCabe was terminated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions ahead of a forthcoming inspector general's report that has found he lacked candor when speaking with investigators about his disclosures to the media. But McCabe has connected his firing to what he describes as a broader campaign to discredit him given his likely cooperation with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian electoral meddling and Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
