The FBI gathered intelligence last summer that suggests Russian operatives tried to use Trump advisers, including Carter Page, to infiltrate the Trump campaign, according to US officials.
I’d say they were quite successful.
“This confirms all of my suspicions about unjustified, politically motivated government surveillance,” Page said in an interview Tuesday. “I have nothing to hide.” He compared surveillance of him to the eavesdropping that the FBI and Justice Department conducted against civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
Good luck with that comparison, Carter.
pretty good analysis
Pretty good timeline
What a mess
Was paid $10-mil to promote Putin’s interests in the US and abroad. Wow.

We reported above the results for individuals. For families, the Republican bill would increase costs by $2,243 if the bill were in effect today.

Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit reading Trump news.
NSA and other agencies are withholding data from the White House because they think Russia “had ears” there.
Quartz performed the heroic task of watching Bannon’s films and presents the worldview of “the Leni Riefenstahl of the Tea Party”. I guess he’s been promoted to Goebbels now.
I don’t get why they didn’t just go with a ranked ballot.
This is a collection of stories from just the past 48 hours or so that I’ve found to be alarming and/or outrageous.
I’ll go light on the Trump stuff from now on, but this is really good
Wow. Things getting worse, quickly.
We are living through the most dangerous challenge to the free government of the United States that anyone alive has encountered. What happens next is up to you and me. Don’t be afraid. This moment of danger can also be your finest hour as a citizen and an American.
This guy was Bush’s speechwriter. He’s full neocon.
The Ontario Liberals don’t believe in anything, do they?
