    Former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele furnished a second 'dossier' with intel on Donald Trump to the government even after publication of his infamous dossier memos and after Trump assumed office, according to a new report. He continued to produce what the Daily Telegraph referring to as a 'second dossier,' which included 'information concerning alleged sexual exploits.' The memos that made up Steele's original dossier contained allegations about Trump Russia ties as well as unverified information about his alleged conduct in in a Moscow hotel room during the Miss Universe Pageant in 2013. Former UK intelligence officer Christopher Steele arrives at the High Court in London on July 24, 2020. Steele continued to provide information to the government after the leak of his infamous dossier in January 2017, according to a report Trump has repeatedly railed against the dossier, as well as former special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, which he calls a 'hoax.' Steele compiled the 35-page dossier between June and December, 2016. Buzzfeed published it in January of 2017, before Trump took office, and former FBI director James...
    Russian police are searching the properties of jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny today for evidence he breached coronavirus rules by calling for nationwide protests demanding his freedom.    Navalny, 44, was arrested on return to Russia following months of treatment for novichok poisoning in Berlin, which he maintains was ordered by President Vladimir Putin. After his imprisonment, the Kremlin dissident called on pro-democracy Russians to protest and demand his release.  On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of activists poured into 70 Russian cities to support the 44-year-old's cause.   Police reported 3,900 arrests, including Navalny's wife Yulia, and were accused of employing 'brutal tactics' to 'suppress' the crowds, which left many activists bloodied and injured.  Interior ministry officials and sources close to Navalny today confirmed his home and offices are being searched as part of a criminal probe into whether the rallies' organisers had breached coronavirus protocol.  Policemen leave the flat of opposition leader Alexei Navalny in Moscow, Russia today. The property is occupied at present by Navalny's wife Yulia, as her husband was jailed on return to Russia for allegedly breaching...
    Allegations that Russia worked with the Taliban to place bounties on U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East are not corroborated by any available intelligence, according to a top general in Afghanistan. “It just has not been proved to a level of certainty that satisfies me,” Gen. Frank McKenzie, commander of the U.S. Central Command, told NBC News. “We continue to look for that evidence. I just haven’t seen it yet. But…it’s not a closed issue,” he said. McKenzie repeated similar claims made by Gen. Mark Milley in July that data supporting the allegations was inconclusive and not enough to act on. “I found what they presented to me very concerning, very worrisome. I just couldn’t see the final connection, so I sent my guys back and said, look, keep digging. So we have continued to dig and look because this involves potential threats to U.S. forces, it’s open,” he said. “I just haven’t seen anything that closes that gap yet.” New York Times (NYT) reported in June that Russia allegedly offered the Taliban money to kill U.S. troops, citing...
    The number of FBI lies keeps piling up as the bureau’s sedulous cover-up of the Russia hoax continues to unravel. There is now a mountain of evidence that the agency was riven with corruption during James Comey’s scandal-plagued tenure. Abuse of power there was so endemic that is persisted unabated by Comey's successor, Christopher Wray, who assumed leadership in August 2017. The latest document declassified on Sunday proves that the FBI actively deceived the Senate Intelligence Committee when it briefed members in 2018 about its Trump-Russia collusion investigation. The bureau assured senators that the infamous dossier was credible and that its author, ex-British spy Christopher Steele, was reliable. The FBI said there was no reason to doubt Steele’s primary subsource. None of it was true, and the FBI well knew it. Indeed, the agency had discredited both Steele and his notorious anti-Trump memos more than a year earlier in January of 2017. Yet, the FBI concealed this information from the senate committee and advised members that the exact opposite was true – that the contents of the dossier were accurate and verified. It was all a deviously...
    Expect indictments in U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation by summer's end. That's what K.T. McFarland, a onetime deputy to former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, said this week on Fox News, referring to the emergence of "cold hard evidence" in the form of documentation. “Now, there is cold, hard evidence. It turns out that these senior officials in the intelligence community and the FBI, they all took notes. They all texted each other. They all had handwritten notes of meetings,” McFarland said on Monday. “And from what I'm hearing, the Durham investigation and the Justice Department is getting to the point where I think we can expect some indictments before the end of the summer." Attorney General William Barr appointed Durham more than a year ago to investigate misconduct by federal law enforcement and intelligence officials during the Russia investigation. The Justice Department has signaled that it expects "developments" in Durham's investigation by the end of the summer. The politically charged review, which shifted into a criminal investigation last fall, has been criticized...
    Adam Berry LONDON—Britain’s Conservative government never bothered to find out whether the Brexit referendum was influenced by the Kremlin, according to a scathing report by parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee. The extraordinary finding was at the heart of a bombshell report that Boris Johnson has repeatedly sought to delay—despite it being ready for publication nine months ago. Kevan Jones, a Labour member of the committee, said it was a “scandal” that No. 10 had never ordered Britain’s extensive intelligence agencies to look into the safety of British elections despite seeing evidence of interference in the 2014 Scottish election and the leak of Democratic emails ahead of the U.S. presidential election in 2016. “The outrage isn’t that there was interference, the outrage is that no one has wanted to know if there was interference,” Jones said. The committee members called on No. 10 to launch a full investigation into Russian interference in the Brexit referendum. “The question is: Who is protecting the British public from interference in our democratic process? Well in a nutshell, we found no one is,” he...

    "He was not personally briefed on the matter," McEnany said on Monday, after she was specifically asked about whether Trump had been given the intelligence in a written briefing. "That is all I can share with you today." Multiple reports throughout Trump's tenure have said that Trump rarely reads the daily brief and even ignores verbal briefings, preferring instead to get his intelligence from Fox News. For example, Trump reportedly didn't read the dire coronavirus warnings in his briefs in January and February. The Russian bounties story has caused an uproar on Capitol Hill, with Democrats blasting Trump for ignoring a foreign attack on American service members. Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), a veteran who lost both of her legs while serving in the Iraq War, said in a speech on the Senate floor on Monday that Trump's "ignorance isn't exculpatory." "'I didn't know that our adversary was helping kill American troops because no one told me' isn't an excuse for the Commander in Chief of the greatest military on earth," Duckworth said. "It's a confession of incompetence." Sen. Chris Murphy...
    Attorney General William Barr said it is “infuriating” that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff insists there was collusion between the Trump 2016 campaign and Russia after a “complete collapse” of the “Russiagate” scandal. Barr, who has served as Trump’s attorney general since early 2019, criticized members of the media for pushing what he views as false claims of Trump-Russia coordination and Democrats for saying one thing behind closed doors and another in front of the cameras. Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo pressed Barr on Schiff’s repeated declarations of there being “collusion in plain sight” and asked the attorney general about “accountability." "Well, as far as public comments like these people have been making in press conferences and on television and so forth, you know, the accountability is really elections for Schiff. That’s why we have elections. If the people of his district want him to continue to behave as he has, then they can send him back to office,” Barr said in a clip of Fox News's Sunday Morning Futures, which aired Tuesday on Fox News....
    MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday angrily rejected Germany’s allegations over Russian intelligence involvement in a cyberattack against the German parliament. The ministry’s spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said the claim concerning a 2015 hacking attack on the German parliament was “absurd” and “unfounded.” Last week, the German Foreign Ministry summoned the Russian ambassador to say it would be pursuing EU sanctions against Russian citizen Dmitriy Badin, an alleged officer with Russia’s GRU military intelligence agency. Badin was already being sought by U.S. authorities and is believed to be part of the hacker group known as APT28, or Fancy Bear. Chancellor Angela Merkel said earlier this month there was “hard evidence” that correspondence from her parliamentary office was among the documents targeted in the attack. Speaking at a briefing, Zakharova dismissed the German allegations and emphasized that they were based on information from the United States. “We resolutely reject the unfounded German allegations of Russian government structures’ involvement in the 2015 hacking attack on Bundestag,” she said, describing them as “nonsense.” “Since 2015, Germany hasn’t offered any single (piece...
