On Wednesday, Robert Anderson — former FBI assistant director of National Security — testified before Congress about the findings of the Mueller report. Anderson denounced Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner for meeting with Kremlin agents.
He noted that Russia gained a foothold in the administration by having agents meet with people close to the President.
“That’s where it starts. You’re talking to people who are around the President or potential President of the United States,” Anderson said. “From that point on you have a voice inside you can filter information to.”
“I think Russia looked at this way in advance on how to potentially target incoming administrations,” he continued.
“And the current President’s administration … the people around him, were not savvy — at all, in my opinion — to counter-intelligence threats or national security issues.”
Former U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy, who is a Republican, added that the administration was compromised when they met with Kremlin agents during the campaign.
“I would just add that even by taking the meeting, you’ve made yourself beholden to Putin,” McCarthy said.
After getting scorched by Pelosi, Sinclair reporter James Rosen suggests she’s lying about her religion
James Rosen of Sinclair Broadcasting suggested on Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was lying when she said she does not hate people because her Catholic faith teaches her not to.
Rosen caught the Speaker's wrath at her weekly press conference, when he shouted a question about her "hating" President Donald Trump.
Pelosi responded by coming back to the podium and dressing down Rosen. She noted that Catholics are taught not to hate.
Later, the Sinclair reporter showed up at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's (R-CA) weekly press conference.
British woman in Spain revived after 6 hours in cardiac arrest
A British woman suffering from severe hypothermia who was revived by doctors in Spain after more than six hours of cardiac arrest, on Thursday hailed her survival as "a miracle".
Audrey Marsh collapsed at around 1:00 pm on November 3 when she and her husband were caught in a snowstorm while out walking in the Pyrenees mountains.
But it was just over two-and-a-half hours before rescue teams were able to reach them, with the 34-year-old showing no signs of life nor cardiac activity, and a body temperature of just 18 degrees Celsius (64.4 degrees Fahrenheit).
Initial efforts to revive her at the scene had no effect and she was flown by helicopter to a Barcelona hospital equipped with an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine (ECMO).
Trumpland’s simmering anger at George Conway finally erupts into a bitter public feud
George Conway, husband of senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, has been a known vocal critic of the Trump administration for a large portion of Donald Trump's presidency, and his anti-Trump Twitter rants were mostly ignored from within the White House. Now, his clear ideological conflict with his wife and her boss seems to finally be boiling over as a Trump official surprised observers by pushing back against his comments.
In a tweet this Wednesday, Trump's 2020 campaign manager took a shot at Conway for promoting an anti-Trump book.
