Manafort moves to suppress evidence found in storage unit

Manafort tries to suppress evidence found in his locker

The FBI first got into the Alexandria, Va. storage unit last May with the assistance of an employee who worked at two or more of Manafort's companies, an agent told the federal magistrate judge who issued the warrant. Then, the agent used what he saw written on so-called Banker's Boxes and the fact there was a five-drawer filing cabinet to get permission to return and seize many of the records.

Trump denies Stormy checkPresident Trump denied knowing about his lawyer's $130,000 payment to a porn star before the 2016 presidential election, telling reporters Thursday that he doesn't know where the hush money came from.

Why, then, would his attorney make the payment to secure the silence of the porn actress known as Stormy Daniels?

“You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney. You’ll have to ask Michael," Trump said.

Cohen did not immediately respond to a request for comment. But Trump's comments could have legal ramifications for Cohen, Trump's personal attorney and the executive vice president of the Trump Organization.

Trump's most influencial White Nationalist Troll

Who is Ricky Vaughn? That was one of the big questions for anyone following far-right politics during the 2016 presidential election. The Twitter troll who took his name and avatar from Charlie Sheen’s character in “Major League” was everywhere on social media, an indefatigable circulator of edgy memes and rah-rah Donald Trump boosterism.

And anti-Semitism and white nationalism.

There was no mistaking Ricky Vaughn’s influence. He had tens of thousands of followers, and his talent for blending far-right propaganda with conservative messages on Twitter made him a key disseminator of extremist views to Republican voters and a central figure in the “alt-right” white supremacist movement that attached itself to Trump’s coattails.
