Susan Rice, John Brennan, Samantha Power named in new Subpoenas

Investigation starts into "unmasking" of intelligence...
Three of the nation’s intelligence agencies received subpoenas Wednesday afternoon issued by the House Intelligence Committee, Fox News has confirmed, with each of the three demands for documents explicitly naming three top officials of the Obama administration: Susan Rice, who served as President Obama’s White House national security adviser; former CIA Director John Brennan; and former U.N. ambassador Samantha Power.
This was just a matter of time... Now we get to see which investigation actually has more legs.

Congress Investigating Another Sessions Meeting

“Congressional investigators are examining whether Attorney General Jeff Sessions had an additional private meeting with Russia’s ambassador during the presidential campaign,” CNN reports.

“Investigators on the Hill are requesting additional information, including schedules from Sessions… They are focusing on whether such a meeting took place April 27, 2016, at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC, where then-candidate Donald Trump was delivering his first major foreign policy address. Prior to the speech, then-Sen. Sessions and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak attended a small VIP reception with organizers, diplomats and others.”

YOU COULDN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP

Trump Moves to Return Russian Compounds

“The Trump administration is moving toward handing back to Russia two diplomatic compounds, near New York City and on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, from which its officials were ejected in late December as punishment for Moscow’s interference in the 2016 presidential election,” the Washington Post reports.

“Then-President Barack Obama said Dec. 29 that the compounds were being ‘used by Russian personnel for intelligence-related purposes,’ and gave Russia 24 hours to vacate them. Separately, Obama expelled from the United States what he said were 35 Russian ‘intelligence operatives.'”

Ah, for the days when we had a President who was on OUR side.

James said...

That last sounds like something else that REALLY needs investigating.

Did Obama act rightly?
Is Trump acting rightly?

Indy Voter said...

Ummmmmm... None of those people were subpoenaed. The FBI, CIA, and NSA were subpoenaed. The only people who were subpoenaed by the House Intelligence Committee were Mike Flynn and Trump's personal lawyer.

James said...

Good catch, Indy.
Ch is very careless these days in what he flails about.

MY, MY!

Russia Investigation Could Reveal Trump’s Tax Returns

Politico: “The president and his beleaguered White House staff have given no outward sign that they have thought about the prospect yet. But in interviews, veteran federal prosecutors and legal scholars said that Mueller, who began his investigation only last week, has clear-cut authority to obtain the president’s tax returns—perhaps the most sensitive and sought-after government documents since the Pentagon Papers—from the IRS if Mueller suspects they might contain evidence of a crime.

“And short of firing Mueller and shutting down his investigation, Trump—who is the first president in 40 years to refuse to make his tax returns public, despite once promising to do so— would have almost no way of stopping him. In fact, the prosecutors said, the president and his lawyers would not necessarily even know that Mueller had obtained them.”

MY, MY AGAIN.

A distinction without out a diffrence since they were named as targets of the subpoenas.

But James loves your nitpicking.

Exactly CH.
Breaking News: Sessions may have had contact with the Russians, and worse, under oath he may have lied to Senator Al Franken.

Commonsense said...

Before you guys hyperventilate;

"A small VIP reception with organizers, diplomats and others.” is not a private meeting.

It's fairly public and quite common for those types of events.

Roger Amick said...

Washington (CNN)Minnesota Sen. Al Franken said he now believes that Attorney General Jeff Sessions committed perjury during his confirmation hearing when he did not disclose meetings with a Russian ambassador.

Sessions' response during the hearing to Franken's question about Russia and President Donald Trump's campaign was demonstrably false, Franken said Tuesday on CNN's "The Lead" with Jake Tapper.
"It's hard to come to any other conclusion than he just perjured himself," the Democratic member of the Senate Judiciary committee said.

There isn't a day that goes by without some other block buster hitting the news.

Roger Amick said...

I wonder if the lawyer can refuse to testify on what they said, using the client/ lawyer privilege?

Commonsense said...

I don't. Attorney/client privilege is absolute.

A lawyer cannot be compelled to reveal confidences, it is viewed and an extension of a client's 5th amendment rights.

A lawyer may not voluntarily reveal client confidences otherwise, he would be subject to disbarment and his testimony would be inadmissible.

The House Democrats know this. They just want to make a little news for the gullible like you.

Commonsense said...

Sessions' response during the hearing to Franken's question about Russia and President Donald Trump's campaign was demonstrably false

Was it? Maybe the Democrat investigators are not so smart after all.

C.H. Truth said...

This meeting was reported months ago...

We are now to the point of "recirculating" old stories as new, just to drive controversy. And some of you fall for it... Ahem.

"Hillary Clinton blasted the Democratic National Committee on Wednesday, saying that she "inherited nothing" from the party after winning its presidential nomination last year.

"So I'm now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party," she said during a question and answer session at Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.

"I mean, it was bankrupt. It was on the verge of insolvency. Its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong," she recalled. "I had to inject money into it."

LOSER

"Hillary Clinton Slams New York Times, DNC, Comey for Loss

Hillary Clinton says she takes full responsibility for her decisions.

There’s just one catch: She says her decisions weren’t the reason that she lost to Donald Trump.

At Recode’s Code Conference in California on Wednesday, the former Democratic presidential nominee was reflective, quick to crack jokes — and eager to cast blame. The more than hour-long question-and-answer event marked the latest in a series of public appearances for Clinton in which she explicitly took on the actions of those around her and other external circumstances in explaining why she lost on Election Day.

“I take responsibility for every decision I make — but that’s not why I lost,” Clinton said.

Perhaps Clinton’s most fresh and savage criticism on Wednesday was directed at the Democratic National Committee. She went as far as to say that when she became her party’s presidential nominee, she inherited “nothing” from the committee.

“I’m now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party,” Clinton said. “It was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, its data was mediocre to poor, non-existent, wrong. I had to inject money into it — the DNC — to keep it going.”

LOSER, LMAO!!!
