Mueller has messages Roger Stone sent to Trump campaign taking credit for release of hacked Dem emails: report

Published

on

Special counsel Robert Mueller has obtained new evidence indicating that right-wing dirty trickster and longtime Trump ally Roger Stone had direct knowledge of WikiLeaks’ hack of former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails before they were publicly released.

In particular, Mueller and his team have been investigating whether so-called “Birther King” Jerome Corsi acted as a conduit between WikiLeaks and Stone, who seemingly predicted the release of Podesta’s emails on Twitter weeks before WikiLeaks dropped them as an “October surprise” during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Additionally, reports NBC, “Mueller’s investigators have reviewed messages to members of the Trump team in which Stone and Corsi seem to take credit for the release of Democratic emails.”

In the past, Stone has insisted that he had no direct contact with WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign — despite the fact that he bragged to an associate about having dinner with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, shortly before Assange started releasing emails that were stolen from Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Stone subsequently went on Alex Jones’ radio show and told him that Russia was going to drop leaked emails that it had obtained from Clinton that he predicted would be devastating to her campaign.

Stone has also insisted that his only back channel to WikiLeaks was via talk show host Randy Credico — although Credico has given Mueller evidence that could blow up those claims and prove Stone perjured himself during congressional testimony.

2020 Election

Will Trump peacefully vacate the Oval Office if he loses the presidential election in 2020? A lesson from 1800

Published

on

As primary season heats up in the United States, the Democrats are anxiously debating the best path to unseat Donald Trump in 2020. But the question of how to beat Trump is perhaps less urgent than the issue of whether he will accept defeat.

Trump has already questioned his loss of the 2016 popular vote with baseless accusations of voter fraud. He has also repeatedly toyed with the idea of extending his presidency beyond the eight-year limit enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, even trumpeting Jerry Falwell Jr.’s assertion that his first term be extended by two years to compensate for the Russia investigation. Perhaps most ominously, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen warned while testifying before the House Oversight Committee in February 2019:

Something is killing galaxies — and science is on the case

Published

on

In the most extreme regions of the universe, galaxies are being killed. Their star formation is being shut down and astronomers want to know why.

The first ever Canadian-led large project on one of the world’s leading telescopes is hoping to do just that. The new program, called the Virgo Environment Traced in Carbon Monoxide survey (VERTICO), is investigating, in brilliant detail, how galaxies are killed by their environment.

As VERTICO’s principal investigator, I lead a team of 30 experts that are using the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) to map the molecular hydrogen gas, the fuel from which new stars are made, at high resolution across 51 galaxies in our nearest galaxy cluster, called the Virgo Cluster.

Inside the Trump administration’s chaotic dismantling of the Federal Land Agency

Published

on

Early this month, workers at the Washington headquarters of the Bureau of Land Management gathered to discuss a Trump administration plan that would force some 200 people to uproot their lives or find other jobs.

With a vague plan that keeps changing as officials describe it — and no guarantees that Congress would fully fund their relocations — the employees were being detailed to distant locations in the West like Grand Junction, Colorado, and Reno, Nevada. Many career staff saw the move as part of a wider Trump administration effort to drive federal employees out of their jobs. Acting White House chief of staff Mike Mulvaney has described that approach as a “wonderful way to streamline government.”
