Trump, Top Campaign Aides Targeted in Subpoena in Special Counsel Probe

President Trump

By Steve Neavling

A grand jury subpoena reveals special counsel Robert Mueller is targeting President Trump and a majority of his campaign’s top officials, according to a new report.

The subpoena demands all emails, texts, letters, handwritten notes and all other forms of communication from Nov. 1, 2015, to present, according to news site Axios, which received copies of the grand jury records.

The subpoenas could reveal a trove of new information as Mueller’s team investigates whether the president and his campaign colluded with Russia to wage a propaganda war against his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

Trump responded this morning on Twitter, accusing the Obama administration of launching an investigation “with zero proof of wrongdoing,” which he said was “unprecedented” and “bigger than Watergate.”

The president, who repeatedly dismissed Russian interference in the election as a “hoax,” continues to call Muellers’ investigation a “witch hunt,” even though the special counsel team has filed more than 100 charges against 19 people and three companies. Three of Trump’s high-ranking campaign aides – Rick Gates, Mike Flynm and George Papadopoulos – have agreed to plead guilty and cooperate with Mueller’s team.

The longtime associates and former campaign officials who were targeted in the subpeona are Carter Page, Corey Lewandowski, Steve Bannon, Hope Hicks, Keith Schiller, Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and Roger Stone.

Ned Price, a former CIA official under Obama, tweeted that the subpoena indicated “Mueller is treating it like a criminal enterprise.”

Price also noted that the inclusion of Roger Stone, who only worked briefly in the early stages of the campaign, suggests Mueller is investigating whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia.

Since 13 Russians and three Russian groups were charged with conspiracy to defraud the U.S. less than a month ago, numerous news reports have indicated Trump also was under investigation for obstruction of justice.

And that’s not it.

Last week, sources close to the probe told several news agencies that Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner also are under investigation for various business dealings before and during the presidential transition.

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman, John Podesta, blamed Russia on attacking his personal email account and suggested Donald Trump’s campaign may have been involved.

Podesta’s private email account was hacked, and the FBI is investigating, the Clinton aide said, the Washington Post reports. 

“I’ve been involved in politics for nearly five decades, and this definitely is the first campaign that I’ve been involved with in which I’ve had to tangle with Russian intelligence agencies, who seem to be doing everything they can on behalf of our opponent,” Podesta told reporters.

Pedestal said the FBI told him on Sunday that his email hack is part of a wider investigation into potential Russian cyberattacks.

“Russian interference in this election and apparently on behalf of [Donald] Trump is, I think, of the utmost concern to all Americans, whether you’re a Democrat or independent or Republican,” Podesta said.

Bernie Sanders Defends 40-Year-Old Statements That CIA Is ‘Dangerous Institution’

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is not backing away from his comments in 1974 that the CIA is a “dangerous institution” that has supported “fascist dictatorships,” the Boston Globe reports. 

But Sanders said at a CNN town hall in South Carolina that his arguments were “40 years ago” and that the CIA plays “an important role.”

Still, he said the agency has “done things which they should not have done on behalf of the United States government.’’

Sanders said that the CIA backed the overthrow of a democratically elected prime minister in 1953, leading to “the Iranian Revolution, and we are where we are today.”

The presidential candidate also pointed to the overthrow of another democratically elected leader, Salvadore Allende in Chile.

Newly Released FBI Files Show ex-Sen. George McGovern Was Pursued for Years

George McGovern

By Steve Neavling

In April 1975, Sen. George McGovern wanted to know whether the FBI had collected any information on him in case he ended up on the presidential ticket.

McGovern was most concerned that the FBI possessed information about a child he fathered as a young man, the Argus Leader reports. 

Hoping to work out a compromise with the bureau, McGovern met with FBI officials and was told the bureau had information that he fathered a child.

According to new FBI records released on McGovern, the senator “made no comment nor asked any questions about the statement that the allegation concerning the illegitimate child had been verified during the special inquiry investigation.”

The FBI last month released nearly 1,4000 pages in McGovern’s FBI file, showing that he was often pursued by the bureau.

The records show that McGovern fathered a child before he was married in 1943 and that the information somehow ended up with President Nixon’s re-election campaign.

After months of campaigning, Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will now have the protection of the Secret Service, reports ABC News.

While there are no specific threats to the candidate, the increased  crowds at Romney’s speaking events warrant the added security, according to ABC.

Former Republican hopeful Herman Cain, who has since dropped out of the race, had the Secret Service protection. Now, Romney will be the only candidate with the Secret Service watching out for him.

WASHINGTON — The DEA collected more than 242,000 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs from the public  at more than 4,000 sites in 50 states as part of its “Take-Back” campaign held on Sept. 25.

“The Take-Back Campaign was a stunning nationwide success that cleaned out more than 121 tons of pills from America’s medicine cabinets, a crucial step toward reducing the epidemic of prescription drug abuse that is plaguing this nation,” said DEA Acting Administrator Michele M. Leonhart.

“Thanks to our state and local law enforcement and community partners—and the public—we not only removed these dangerous drugs from our homes, but also educated countless thousands of concerned citizens about the dangers of drug abuse.”

The DEA said some of the folks showing up included a Troy, Mo. a man who brought his kitchen drawer full of medication to empty at a collection site. The agency said a woman in Jacksonville, Ill., brought in nearly 50 years’ worth of medicines to a site.
