Stein Withholds Info from Senate Intel Committee
BuzzFeed News reports 2016 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has given hundreds of documents to the Senate Intelligence Committee as its Russia investigation continues but is refusing to turn over others.
Stein, however, has refused to hand over some documents from two of the six categories about which the committee inquired. One of those categories, according to a March letter from Stein’s lawyer to the committee’s bipartisan leadership, was for communications with “Russian persons,” while the other asked for “all communications related to the campaign’s policy discussions regarding Russia.” Both categories asked for documents dated from Feb. 6, 2015, when Stein announced her interest in making second presidential bid, to present.
Stein and President Trump's first national security advisor Michael Flynn attended the same RT dinner in Moscow in 2015, and both sat at the same table as Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Nunes Isn't Reading Documents He's Demanding
After threatening Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein with contempt of Congress or impeachment and being granted the opportunity to review "a copy of the electronic communication formally authorizing the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election," Nunes showed no interest.
When Nunes and Gowdy arrived at the Justice Department to review the electronic communication, officials were caught off-guard by his next move. Nunes -- sitting with a copy of the document in an unopened folder directly in front of him -- opted not to read it
Nunes admitted in February that he did not read any applications under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Trump's Shift from Credit to (Russian) Cash in 2006
President Trump, who often bragged about his ability to leverage debt, made a curious shift in how he purchased properties starting in 2006, offering cash and paying in full.
As the ‘King of Debt,’ Trump borrowed to build his empire. Then he began spending hundreds of millions in cash
It shows that Trump had access to far more cash than previously known, despite his string of commercial bankruptcies and the Great Recession’s hammering of the real estate industry.
And how did Trump — who had money tied up in golf courses and buildings — raise enough liquid assets to go on this cash buying spree?
Both Eric and Don Jr. once revealed about the organization's access to Russian money.
In 2008, Donald Trump Jr. stated that, “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross section of a lot of our assets.”
In 2014, golf writer James Dodson was hanging out on the golf course with Eric Trump. Dodson asked him where the Trumps got all their money, as banks weren’t loaning at the time. According to Dodson, Eric said, “Well, we don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.” He added: “Oh, yeah. We’ve got some guys that really, really love golf, and they’re really invested in our programs.”
Eric’s comments came at about the same time the Trump Organization embarked on its “biggest cash binge,” as described by the Post.
And then there is Trump's sale of an uninhabitable Palm Beach mansion to Russia's fertilizer king, Dmitry Rybolovlev, in 2008.
In 2004, Donald Trump purchased Maison de l’Amitie at bankruptcy auction for $41.35 million. Two years and a couple coats of paint later, Trump – having never lived in it -- put the property back on the market for $125 million. He eventually dropped the price to $100 million, but the mansion still sat unsold.
Finally, in 2008, the Russian oligarch offered Trump $75 million for the estate. The two men settled on $95 million on July 15, 2008 and conducted the entire transaction through intermediaries.

The Senate Intelligence Committee issued a report Tuesday concluding the Russian government probed state election infrastructure during the 2016 election in an effort to dismantle trust in the U.S. voting system.
The Committee does not know whether the Russian government-affiliated actors intended to exploit vulnerabilities during the 2016 elections and decided against taking action, or whether they were merely gathering information and testing capabilities for a future attack. Regardless, the Committee believes the activity indicates an intent to go beyond traditional intelligence collection.
