Exclusive: Sources linked to the intelligence community say it is believed that a Russian hacker of the election, Pyotr Levashov, was paid directly by Boris Epshteyn on behalf of both Trump and the FSB.
Sources say the indictment on April 20th of Levashov in the US district court in Connecticut (where an FBI counterintelligence division is based) represents the first concrete move in court that openly leads towards the impeachment of Donald Trump and the prosecution of dozens of members of his team – because this hacker, the sources suggest, was compensated by Team Trump and the FSB jointly, and Team Trump, sources say, know it.
Mr. Epshteyn’s lawyers have denied to me in writing that he was ever an agent of Russia, and have said that neither he nor his parents were ever agents of the Russian state. However, I stand by my prior and current reporting on this public…

Louise Mensch painstakingly connects the convoluted dots of trump’s seduction by the Russians, as their “useful idiot,” to influence the 2018 Presidential election. Worth a read.
Or, How Vladimir Putin Catfished A US Election With the Collusion of Team Trump
Did Russia invent a criminal case against Anthony Weiner – so their hacker Nikulin could plant Hillary’s emails on his computer?
It was the Comey letter that handed the election to Trump. Even if corrupt elements in the FBI Field Office in New York, penetrated by Russia, forced Comey’s hand – even if Russian hacker Nikulin did plant emails on Anthony Weiner’s computer – there had to be a “separate criminal case” in the first place for the NYPD and FBI to go looking, right?
But what if there wasn’t?
What if Vladimir Putin directed the entire attack – not via a “15 year old girl” from Gaston, North Carolina, but by a hardened group of adult hackers from that state who had penetrated the emails of Director Brennan of the CIA, and doxed and attacked hundreds…

White nationalists see advocate in Steve Bannon who will hold Trump to his campaign promises
NEVER AGAIN. Stay woke and we shall not be moved, people . Do not waste time blaming and shaming. Use the energy to regroup and organize.
Sean Patrick Hughes makes the conservative’s case for why people like me sounded the alarm against trump so loudly and so much.
Now, that he has done exactly as expected, and placed a white supremacist as one of his direct advisors, we – women, People of Color, LGBTQIAP, Muslims, Jews, disabled people, immigrants, refugees and our conservative allies who ALSO sounded the same alarm are waiting to see how many trump supporters will stand up to his hate-filled rhetoric. We have no indication that he will change, reach out to marginalized people or actually condemn the hate crimes perpetrated on his behalf. His “60 Minutes” interview inspired LESS confidence in him, not more.
As I’ve mentioned, he has about two months to learn 240 years of US and World politics, history, economics, finance and budgeting and diplomacy – at an EXPERT level.
He has spent the past eight years insulting and delegitimizing our first African-American President. Now, he will be assuming the same office, and MUST be better than President Obama.
He made numerous campaign promises to his supporters, who are impatient and armed. I wish him well, because failure is not an option.
Joy Ann Reid enumerated what the USA has to look forward in trumplandia on AM Joy (Saturday, November 12, 2016).
I’m not a liberal. I’m not a safe space, social crusader. I’m not a sore loser who can’t get over the fact that Hillary Clinton wasn’t elected president. The notion that I had to put what lukewarm support I had for a candidate behind her was a source of great frustration for me. I am, at my very core, someone with conservative foundations. I believe that men and women, whenever possible, should be free to live their lives without government intervention. My family and my Christian faith are the center of my life. I like my guns. Chances are, I’m better than you at using them. I’ve worked with and for the toughest most dangerous men on the planet-men you’ve read books about, men you’ve seen movies about. I’ll never claim to be one. But I’ve proven myself useful in their presence. I share this with you so you understand…
