Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday expressed concern over the president’s penchant for shrugging off Moscow’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. “I’m concerned when the president tweets, you know, Russia denies they meddled in our election,” Graham said on NBC’s Meet the Press. “We’ve armed the Ukraine, we’ve imposed sanctions, we’ve kicked out diplomats, but the idea that Russia did not meddle in our election is fake news. They did meddle in our election and they’re doing it again in 2018,” he said. Graham went on to say he’s pleased that Trump is “going to confront Putin” at the two leaders’ upcoming meeting in Helsinki. His remarks come after Trump once again floated the idea Russia had no involvement in election meddling on Twitter, saying on Thursday that Moscow “continues to say they had nothing to do” with it. Despite lawmakers framing his sit-down with Putin as a way to confront the Russian leader, Trump has refused to rule out lifting sanctions after the pair’s summit.

***Update 7/9/18*** Giuliani says *wink* *wink* "Cohen should tell the truth".  Cohen responds he will and he won't be a punching bag any more.

12 Russian Intelligence Officers Indicted in Hacking Tied to the Clinton Campaign

 

Fox News for you nothingburger guys

Russian officers indicted for allegedly hacking Clinton campaign, DNC emails

 

 

Quote

"Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing" - Donald Trump July 27, 2016

 

 

Quote

For example, on or about July 27, 2016, the Conspirators attempted after hours to spearphish for the first time email accounts at a domain hosted by a third-party provider and used by Clinton's personal office. At or around the same time, they also targeted seventy-six email addresses at the domain for the Clinton Campaign

It's kind of amazing what Trump is facing right now:

  • Russian interference, via OSC.
  • NDA's & Cohen via SDNY.
  • Inauguration funding, via DC USA.
  • Trump Foundation, via NY AG / Manhattan DA.

Maria Butina will not be released on bail.

And more Butina emails were found.

Quote

Dozens of pages of email correspondence between August 2015 and November 2016, obtained exclusively by ABC News, reveal Butina’s hand in a pair of potentially explosive projects: appearing to arrange a meeting for a delegation of high-ranking members of the National Rifle Association with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and working with the Outdoor Channel to develop a television show highlighting Putin’s “love of the outdoors” that would feature the Russian President himself.

In one exchange, a pair of NRA insiders discuss their upcoming trip to Russia and appear to copy and paste a previous note from the trip’s organizer Butina — describing the note as “In Maria’s own words” — that makes explicit reference to Lavrov, one of Putin’s closest advisers.

“Almost all your schedule is done,” Butina wrote. “We are waiting [sic] a response from The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs — Mr. Lavrov wants to meet you and we are working to make it real.”

And in another exchange between Butina and a senior executive at the Outdoor Channel, Butina claimed her “contacts directly within the President’s office” were “VERY happy (and excited)” about the proposed program and its political potential.
