Former Trump aide Sam Nunberg says he will not comply with special counsel Mueller's subpoena

Nunberg claims Russia may have something on Trump

A former aide to Donald Trump said Monday that he would refuse to comply with special counsel Robert Mueller's subpoena in the Russia probe.

Sam Nunberg, who was an advisor on Trump's 2016 campaign, told MSNBC that it would be "really funny" if Mueller arrested him for ignoring the grand jury subpoena. Laughing, he said that "my lawyer is about to dump me right now."


Trump’s Voter Fraud Czar, And His Claims About Illegal Voting, Are About To Go On Trial

Trump voter fraud Czar and claims about to go to trial

In 2013, Donna Bucci, a woman in her 50′s living in Wichita, Kansas, went to renew her driver’s license. Bucci had been Kansas resident for a few years, and decided to use her trip to the DMV as an opportunity to register to vote while she was there.

Bucci didn’t need to prove she was a citizen to renew her license (Kansas says an expiring license is good enough). But shortly after she registered, she received a phone call and a letter in the mail saying her voter registration was still pending because she hadn’t proved she was a citizen. Bucci, who was born in Maryland, didn’t have a copy of her birth certificate or any of the other documents, like a passport, to prove she was a citizen.


Trump lawyer complained he wasn't reimbursed for Stormy Daniels payment

Donald Trump's lawyer complained to friends following the 2016 election that he had not been reimbursed for his payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

Michael Cohen paid Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement that ensured she would not speak about an alleged 2006 affair with Trump.

Cohen last month acknowledged that he made the payment, and denied it violated any campaign finance law.


State Dept. Was Granted $120 Million to Fight Russian Meddling. It Has Spent $0.

TillersonAs Russia’s virtual war against the United States continues unabated with the midterm elections approaching, the State Department has yet to spend any of the $120 million it has been allocated since late 2016 to counter foreign efforts to meddle in elections or sow distrust in democracy.

As a result, not one of the 23 analysts working in the department’s Global Engagement Center — which has been tasked with countering Moscow’s disinformation campaign — speaks Russian, and a department hiring freeze has hindered efforts to recruit the computer experts needed to track the Russian efforts.


More than 300 NYPD officers kept jobs despite fireable offenses

NYPD keeping 330 police officers despite offenses

Hundreds of New York Police Department officers and staff who committed offenses serious enough to merit firing have been allowed to keep their jobs through a probationary program that provides barely any punishment, BuzzFeed News reported.

The media outlet said it obtained files from 2011 to 2015 revealing details on more than 300 officers who lied, cheated, stole or assaulted city residents — and still kept their jobs. Dozens of the employees lied on official reports, under oath or during an internal affairs investigation, according to the files.

Ben & Jerry co-founder arrested at protest against F-35Ben and Jerry's co-founder Ben Cohen was arrested for disorderly conduct in Burlington, Vt., while protesting the future presence of F-35 fighter planes based in the state.

Cohen was arrested on Saturday after he and two other demonstrators violated the city's noise ordinances by playing jet noises from speakers to simulate what the noise would be like if the planes were stationed in the area, according to The Burlington Free Press.

The three protesters received citations to appear in court, the newspaper reported.



Mueller's Team Probing Possible UAE Efforts to Influence Trump

George Nader now focus of Mueller probeGeorge Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman, has hovered on the fringes of international diplomacy for three decades. He was a back-channel negotiator with Syria during the Clinton administration, reinvented himself as an adviser to the de facto ruler of the United Arab Emirates, and last year was a frequent visitor to President Trump’s White House.

Mr. Nader is now a focus of the investigation by Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel. In recent weeks, Mr. Mueller’s investigators have questioned Mr. Nader and have pressed witnesses for information about any possible attempts by the Emiratis to buy political influence by directing money to support Mr. Trump during the presidential campaign, according to people with knowledge of the discussions.
