President Trump has repeatedly claimed that he didn't stay overnight in Moscow during his highly-publicized trip to the Russian capital in 2013 — but flight records reveal that those claims are likely false. Trump insisted over dinner with ex-FBI Director James Comey last January that a scandalous claim about him engaging with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel suite couldn't be true because he didn't stay overnight when he went there for the Miss Universe pageant in November 2013. "He said he arrived in the morning, did events, then showered and dressed for the pageant at the hotel," and then left for the event, Comey wrote in a memo made public by the Justice Department last week. "Afterwards, he returned only to get his things because they departed for New York by plane that same night." But flight records unearthed by Bloomberg News on Monday show that Trump arrived in Moscow at 6:15 a.m. on Nov. 8, 2013 — and left 45 hours and 43 minutes later. … [Read more...] about Records show Trump stayed overnight during 2013 Moscow trip, contradicting what he told Comey about ‘pee tape’

TONIGHT: @StephenAtHome makes @Comey an offer he can refuse. #LSSC pic.twitter.com/BF94vYSp8i — The Late Show (@colbertlateshow) April 18, 2018 Former FBI director James Comey continued his book press tour by appearing on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert where he talked about what it’s like “working for a mob boss.” The late-night host asked Comey if he was “surprised” when he got “whacked” — a reference to that fateful day last summer when President Donald Trump fired the federal agent-turned-autobiographer. “I actually was quite surprised because I thought, I’m leading the Russia investigation,” responded Comey. Even though our relationship is becoming strained, there’s no way I’d be fired … that’s a crazy thing to do.” He then tried to get down to business with the former FBI director, asking if he has any information relating to the … [Read more...] about Stephen Colbert to Comey: Were You Surprised When ‘Mob Boss’ Trump Had You ‘Whacked’?
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is appearing before lawmakers on Capitol Hill, where he’s expected to be grilled over the company’s role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal. The tech bigwig’s testimony before the Senate’s Judiciary and Commerce committees continues his atonement in Washington, D.C., where some members of Congress want to regulate Facebook. As many as 87 million Facebook users had their data improperly obtained by Cambridge Analytica, which a whistleblower claims was used to influence voters. Facebook, which initially thought the data was deleted, reportedly found out about the major snafu in 2015, but didn’t ban the London-based firm until last month. Zuckerberg has drawn the ire of lawmakers both in the U.S. and the U.K., where Cambridge Analytica was also linked to the Brexit movement to leave the European Union. Zuckerberg dresses up in D.C. to apologize for Facebook scandal On Monday, … [Read more...] about WATCH LIVE: Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg appears before Senate panel over Cambridge Analytica scandal
President Donald Trump could fire every single person from his administration in one sweeping tweet, and Fox News anchor Jesse Watters would still be alerting his audiences about Hillary Clinton’s head colds. The host of Fox News’ Watters’ World opened his Saturday night show with an update that had nothing to do with Andrew McCabe’s historic firing just hours earlier, or the president’s scathing tweets about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 election. He was apparently still far too concerned about a report published a day earlier which said Clinton injured her wrist. “As you’ve all seen, Hillary has acted a little erratic in the past,” Watters began, before showing a series of clips of Clinton coughing, drinking water and tripping while walking into an airplane. “Hillary has a history of ailments … she has blood clots in her brain, she’s tripped and broke her toe, she’s … [Read more...] about Jesse Watters’ Tunnel Vision Focus on Hillary Clinton’s Health Continues During Latest Trump Firings
Glenn Greenwald and his skepticism on the Trump/Russia scandal is the subject of a big new profile in New York Magazine today headlined “Does This Man Know More Than Robert Mueller?”The profile is not an overtly-sympathetic one, and Greenwald himself has––while praising the content––taken issue with some of the presentation: He makes it clear that he’s not particularly sold on the idea that the indictments so far are “huge”:“Have they been huge?” he pounces, answering his own question. “I mean, I guess they’ve been huge in the sense that Donald Trump’s former campaign manager was indicted on multiple felony charges, right? That’s inherently huge, but it’s not particularly huge for the Russia story, because all the charges leveled against Manafort were unrelated to questions of collusion with the Russians.” Fair enough, but Papadopoulos’s arrest was in fact related to the question … [Read more...] about Glenn Greenwald Slams Liberal Russia Hype and ‘Partisan Hack’ Rachel Maddow in New Profile
