Facebook delivers Russian ad data to special counsel Robert Mueller

Facebook gives documents to Mueller

Facebook has given information about Russian advertising purchases on the social network to special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russia's influence on the 2016 presidential election.

Mueller's investigation into Russian influence — and possible connections to the Trump campaign — includes the propagation of fake information on social media. Two weeks ago, Facebook said an internal investigation found $100,000 in ad spending by fake accounts and pages, likely operated out of Russia, which aimed to affect political division during the election.


Trump hypes mock video of golf ball seen striking Clinton

Trump retweets doctored video of golf ball hitting HillaryPresident Donald Trump has retweeted a mock video that shows him striking a golf ball that — in the next frame — seemingly hits Hillary Clinton in the back and knocks her down as she boards a plane.

The re-edited video appears to be a doctored version of news footage from 2011 that shows the then-secretary of state falling after climbing the stairs to the plane.

TVNL Comment:  Trump is still so frightened and jealous of Hillary Clinton.  He cannot keep himself from attacking a woman who has more class, more ability, more education, more experience, more gravitas and far more good judgment than he could ever hope to have.

A spokesman for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Jason Maloni, spent about two-and-a-half hours testifying Friday before a federal grand jury probing potential collusion between the campaign and Russia.

Russia Laundering Probe Puts Trump Tower Meeting in New Light

Natalia Veselnitskaya

More than the White House was at stake when Donald Trump Jr. met at Trump Tower last summer with a top lawyer for Moscow’s regional government.

The attorney, Natalia Veselnitskaya, had a client with another pressing matter -- a U.S. criminal investigation into possible Russian money laundering.

Veselnitskaya, who met with Trump Jr. after an email promised him compromising information about Hillary Clinton, has been depicted as an activist working to repeal human-rights sanctions against Russia.

Susan Rice unmasked Trump associates at undisclosed Trump Tower meeting

Former national security adviser Susan Rice told House investigators that she internally unmasked the identities of senior Trump officials in order to understand why the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates was in New York late last year, CNN reports.

Last December, the crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan, met with three transition team members in Trump Tower: Michael Flynn, President Trump’s first national security adviser; the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner; and chief strategist Stephen Bannon, multiple sources told CNN.


Trump, Democrats confirm outline of DACA deal, despite denials

Trump, Pelosi and Schumer

President Donald Trump and Democratic congressional leaders reached a tentative agreement Wednesday night to provide a pathway to citizenship for young immigrants known as “Dreamers" — but after a conservative backlash, the president and his aides sent conflicting signals about how firm the agreement was.

After a meeting with Trump at the White House Wednesday night, Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi said they had come to terms with Trump on a plan that would provide protection for Dreamers in exchange for beefed-up border security — but, notably, no additional funding for a border wall.
