Weekly Wrap Up | Yes this all happened JUST this week. And a DOJ Shake UP!

WASHINGTON — A top House Democrat is challenging the core conclusion of the memo released by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes on Friday, calling the allegation that the Justice Department and FBI withheld key details as they sought a secret surveillance warrant on former Trump adviser Carter Page “deliberately misleading and deeply wrong on the law.”

NBC News has exclusively obtained a six-page rebuttal to the Nunes memo from Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, which was to be circulated to all House Democrats on Saturday.

Given his senior position, Nadler is one of the small number of lawmakers who has viewed the highly sensitive documents that are the basis of Nunes’ memo.

It begins folks.  This is the start of the END of the Trump Administration!

The lawyers believe the special counsel lacks standing in some matters, but a refusal would run counter to the president’s statements and raise the specter of a court battle.

February 7 at 2:26 PM
Congressional leaders on Wednesday unveiled a sweeping budget deal that would add about $400 billion in federal spending over the next two years, delivering the military funding boost demanded by President Trump alongside the increase in domestic programs sought by Democrats.

With a government-shutdown deadline of midnight Thursday looming, the accord holds the promise to break a months-long partisan standoff centered on federal spending, though roadblocks remain.

In a major lift for the package, the White House signaled its support, with press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders calling it “steps forward.” But several Republicans strenuously opposed a plan that would add to the nation’s debt.

 

The move came amid rising fury from Democrats angry the agreement lacked protections for young immigrants who could soon be at risk for deportation.

Trump supporters and extreme conservatives consume and share more “junk news” on social media than every other political group combined, a University of Oxford study has found.

The three-month study, published Tuesday as part of the school’s Computational Propaganda Research Project, scrutinized the habits of 13,477 politically active U.S. Twitter users and 47,719 public Facebook pages in the months leading up to the State of the Union address late last month.

The authors then mapped how links to junk news sources flowed through the social media networks. Based on the links users shared and other factors, researchers separated them into distinct (yet often overlapping) cohorts, which they labeled “Hard Conservative,” “Women’s Rights,” “Conspiracy,” “Libertarian,” “Trump Support,” “Democratic Party,” etc.

The study linked a full 55 percent of all junk news traffic on Twitter to the “Trump Support” group. “On Twitter, a network of Trump supporters shares the widest range of known junk news sources and circulates more junk news than all the other groups put together,” the authors noted.

Fifty-five percent of all junk news traffic on Twitter can be linked to Trump supporters, researchers said.

This story,  should not surprise anyone that the fake news king has such GREAT (dumbass), followers

The U.S. official in charge of protecting American elections from hacking says the Russians successfully penetrated the voter registration rolls of several U.S. states prior to the 2016 presidential election.

In an exclusive interview with NBC News, Jeanette Manfra, the head of cybersecurity at the Department of Homeland Security, said she couldn’t talk about classified information publicly, but in 2016, “We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated.”

Jeh Johnson, who was DHS secretary during the Russian intrusions, said, “2016 was a wake-up call and now it’s incumbent upon states and the Feds to do something about it before our democracy is attacked again.”

But Johnson told NBC News he is now worried that since the 2016 election a lot of states have done little to nothing “to actually harden their cybersecurity.”

Manfra said she didn’t agree with Johnson’s assessment. “I would say they have all taken it seriously.”

NBC News reached out to the 21 states that were targeted. Five states, including Texas and California, said they were never attacked.

I posted and said in my podcast last year, that it will come out, that the 2016 election was NOT a legitimate election and was hacked in at least 2 states.

Spending plan being shepherded by Ryan would nearly triple the budget gap he aimed for in 2011, when Obama was president.

MY ONLY QUESTION WHY WAS HE IN THAT JOB WITH NO SECURITY CLEARANCE AT ALL!  I have been through the clearance process it’s not fun, and yes I did get mine in only four months!

White House Counsel Donald McGahn knew one year ago that staff secretary Rob Porter’s ex-wives were prepared to make damaging accusations about him but allowed him to serve as an influential gatekeeper and aide to President Trump without investigating the accusations, according to people familiar with the matter.Chief of Staff John F. Kelly learned this fall about the allegations of spousal abuse and that they were delaying Porter’s security clearance amid an ongoing FBI investigation. But Kelly handed Porter more responsibilities to control the flow of information to the president.

Porter, who denied the “vile” allegations, resigned Wednesday after the ex-wives’ accounts of years of verbal and physical abuse were published, along with graphic pictures of Colbie Holderness, his first wife, bruised from what she said was a punch to the face.

The episode has thrust Trump’s senior-most aides, many of whom have already been embroiled in the controversy related to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia investigation, into yet another crisis.

 

The White House is under increasing pressure to explain why Rob Porter was kept in a key role while top Trump officials were aware for months of at least some of the serious allegations against him.
