  • Did acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, Attorney General William Barr or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein ever suggest that you wrap up your investigation, suggest limits on lines of inquiry (and, if so, be specific) or limit resources available to your office?
  1. Did your office make any assessment of the degree to which Donald Trump, his campaign and his administration, advanced the interests of the Russian Federation, wittingly or unwittingly, and, if so, what was that assessment? If not, please explain the reasoning for avoiding this.
  1. What information did your office request, such as intercepts and other intelligence, from the CIA, the National Security Agency and other federal intelligence services, and were all requests honored? Did your office withhold anything, or not pursue any leads, leads because of concerns about protecting such intelligence, including sources and methods?
  1. Since you were the second-longest-serving FBI director, and knowing what you now know, are there are other areas of investigation into the conduct of Donald Trump, his team, its relationships with others and his conduct in office that you would have agents investigate were you still leading the FBI?
  1. Your report states that “it is important to view the President’s pattern of conduct as a whole. That pattern sheds light on the nature of the President’s acts and the inferences that can be drawn about his intent.” And you have stated that responsibility in this regard rests with Congress. So, what do you recommend Congress do—enact new laws and if so what laws? Hold oversight hearings and if so into what? Initiate impeachment proceedings?

Appellate Judge says Mary Trump’s tell-all book can be released

Published

Yesterday, a judge paused Mary Trump's tell-all book on President Donald Trump and his family, but Wednesday evening, a New York appellate judge ruled that Simon & Schuster could move forward with releasing the book.

According to the New York Times, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man will be released in four weeks, on schedule.

"Justice Alan Scheinkman’s ruling, however, put off addressing a central aspect of the bitter spat about the manuscript that has been roiling all month in the Trump family: whether, by writing the book, Ms. Trump violated a confidentiality agreement put in place nearly 20 years ago after a struggle over the will of her grandfather, Fred Trump Sr., Donald Trump’s father," the report said.

Published

on

President Donald Trump was so incensed that the media learned of his staffers who caught COVID-19 in Tulsa, Oklahoma that he had a kind of inquisition for healthcare workers to investigate if they linked the story.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that those familiar to his reaction said that outside of the BOK center, Trump campaign staff were being tested before the event. When the information was released, they scrambled, quizzing who leaked the information about the positive cases.

Healthcare workers were "then given a different list of people to test, according to two people with direct knowledge of the events who, like others in this story, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal conversations," said the Post.
