Mueller has recordings where Roger Stone bragged about plan to release stolen Democrat emails: WSJ report

Published

on

Longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone bragged about Wikileaks’ plans to release stolen emails from Democratic Party officials on conference calls during the run-up to the 2016 election, the Wall Street Journal reports.

At least twice during August 2016, the Trump adviser had conference calls where he told callers about WikiLeaks’ plans to release information that he said would affect the 2016 presidential campaign before the election, the paper reports.

The report is sourced to “people who listened to the sessions and recordings of one of the calls published online and reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.”

It’s a matter that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators are looking into, “according to a witness in the probe and another person familiar with the matter.”

“In the background of this entire race going forward is the fact that Julian Assange…is going to continue to drop information on the American voters that is going to roil this race,” Mr. Stone said on Aug. 4, 2016. “He has made that very clear.”

Even if Democrats flip Michigan and Pennsylvania, increase their vote totals in California and come close to winning Texas -- which could give them 5 million more votes than Trump -- their candidate could still lose if Trump narrowly wins Arizona, Florida, North Carolina and Wisconsin.

Hope Hicks’ latest obstruction just gave the Democrats a major weapon: report

Published

on

Hope Hicks didn't provide much information for Democrats in her testimony before the House Judiciary Committee -- but she may have cracked the stone wall the White House has built around former staffers.

President Donald Trump's former communications director -- and perhaps his most trusted aide outside his family -- claimed blanket immunity throughout her closed-door testimony, but Hicks still gave Democrats something in their legal battle against the White House, argued Margaret Carlson for The Daily Beast.

A number of Democrats running for president are kind of weird about food

Published

on

The New York Times has posted a series of short videos of the Democratic candidates for president answering important questions, like what they propose to do about our broken health care system and just how crooked Donald Trump is. Because campaign coverage demands candidates be allowed “human” (debatable!) moments, the Times also asked the participating candidates about their go-to comfort foods on the campaign trail.
