The White House Applied Two Very Different Standards to the Comey Hearing

The White House Applied Two Very Different Standards to the Comey Hearing

CNN's Dana Bash on Monday slammed Sean Spicer for his claim that Paul Manafort-former chairman for Donald Trump's campaign-actually "played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time" in then candidate-Trump's presidential effort.

Rogers said there was no evidence that Russian Federation changed vote totals in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida and North Carolina.

America and Britain's relationship has been unexpectedly strained this week over unsubstantiated allegations that British spy agency GCHQ helped Obama tap Donald Trump's phones at Trump Tower.

In an interview on CBS "This Morning,"Alyssa Mastromonaco described the new administration's first 100 days as " pretty uncommon", saying the White House appeared to be ignoring protocols and reversing Obama administration positions "for sport".

Koeman's praise for Lukaku as he passes 20-goal mark
BBC pundit Garth Crooks believes the prospect of Romelu Lukaku playing alongside Sadio Mane at Liverpool is 'too scary for words'. Lukaku is the first Everton player to score 21 league goals in a season since Gary Lineker in 1985-1986.

National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers says the intelligence community stands behind its January assessment that it is highly confident Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election with the goal of electing Donald Trump.

Stone, who has remained a stalwart Trump defender, said in a phone interview last week that he has no relationship with Russian Federation.

Nunes and other lawmakers alleged that Russian Federation tried to interfere in the general elections.

He also says the committee will investigate who has been leaking classified information about investigations into Russia's interference.

Stephen Hawking says yes to future opportunity to travel to space

President Donald Trump is accusing Democrats of fabricating allegations about Russian Federation and creating more "fake news".

"The NSA and Federal Bureau of Investigation tell Congress that Russian Federation did not influence electoral process", Trump tweeted in celebration, though that was never the conclusion reached by either agency. "It's an insane accusation for a president to accuse another president of, and also anyone who knows Barack Obama knows he wouldn't do that".

Federal Bureau of Investigation director, James Comey, is scheduled to speak today about Trump's wiretap claims in front of congress and it's already expected that he will debunk the president's allegations that Obama had him illegally wiretapped. "James Clapper and others stated there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russian Federation".

Though there is no evidence of Russian interference influencing election results, Comey said Russian President Vladimir Putin hated the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton so much that the flipside of that coin was he had a clear preference for the person running against the person he hated so much.

Comey has been invited to testify, along with the director of the National Security Agency, Michael Rogers. Also of interest to the committee are any connections between Russian Federation and associates of President Donald Trump.
