Russia-linked ex-Trump adviser Carter Page compares himself to MLK in batsh*t crazy letter to DOJ

Published

on

Carter Page, a former adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, has written a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice blaming former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her campaign for accusations that he has been colluding with the Russian government.

Page, a former investment banker who has made a name for himself attacking the United States government on Russian state media outlets, gave The Intercept a copy of a letter he wrote to the DOJ asking it to investigate “the severe election fraud in the form of disinformation, suppression of dissent, hate crimes and other extensive abuses led by members of Mrs. Hillary Clinton’s campaign and their political allies last year.”

At issue, according to Page, are accusations that he has maintained significant contacts with Russian intelligence officials during and after his time as a Trump foreign policy adviser.

Specifically, Page says that the Clinton campaign was behind these accusations, which he believes are an attempt to silence him from speaking his mind.

“The actions by the Clinton regime and their associates may be among the most extreme examples of human rights violations observed during any election in U.S. history since Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was similarly targeted for his anti-war views in the 1960’s,” writes Page.

Recent reports have claimed that law enforcement officials are investigating former Trump campaign advisers Paul Manafort, Carter Page and Roger Stone for their links to Russia, and both the New York Times and CNN reported this week that intelligence agencies have intercepted communications between Trump campaign officials and Russian intelligence agencies.

‘Expect the worst’ as Trump doubles down on racist rhetoric to rile up his base: columnist

Published

on

In a column for the Daily Beast, commentator and Sirius radio host Dean Obeidallah claims that all signs point to Donald Trump doubling down on racist rhetoric in an effort to rally his base as his internal polling shows him losing the key states that propelled him to the White House.

As Trump officially launches his re-election bid in Orlando on Tuesday night, Obeidallah notes Trump is falling back on what helped him appeal to disgruntled white workers in the Midwest and that he will likely ramp up attacks on undocumented immigrants -- including official actions.

‘It can be hacked’: Election experts already see red flags in the Democrats’ 2020 nomination process

Published

on

The Democratic National Committee may reverse course on its plans to increase participation in 2020 presidential caucus states by offering off-site voting options—starting with telephone voting in Iowa and possibly online voting in other states.

That prospect of a reversal, at least in the early nominating caucuses, stems from growing concerns in top party circles about protecting the “integrity of the process” in a post-2016 climate, said James Roosevelt III, co-chair of the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee.

“It is entirely possible,” said Roosevelt. “The committee is going to be looking to be convinced that it will work. I think the committee is subject to competing pressures. One is to honor Iowa’s commitment to participatory democracy. And the other is to a heightened sensitivity that did not exist four or certainly eight years ago to the integrity of the process.”
