Graham Opening Investigation Into Russia Investigation

Obama lashes out at Trump over coronavirus response in call with supporters

Intel chief releases information on Flynn 'unmasking'

Trump has also posted several dozen tweets about "Obamagate", the inchoate conspiracy theory positing that Obama personally pushed the FBI to investigate Trump's first national security adviser Michael Flynn.

The president and his allies say they're looking forward especially to information coming from the inquiry that was ordered by Barr and is being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham.

Trump's zeal has sparked fears among some former Obama and Biden advisers about how far he may be willing to go in using the levers of government to push his case against them in an election year. "It's been going on from before I even got elected, and it's a disgrace that it happened".

Trump unleashed "Obamagate" on the world during Sunday's 126-tweet barrage during which he referred to the moniker several times, describing it as the "biggest political crime in American history".

"People should be going to jail for this stuff and hopefully, a lot of people are going to have to pay", he claimed.

Finally, Graham said, the Judiciary Committee would "look at whether Robert Mueller should have ever been appointed as Special Counsel" to investigate potential Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election.

How a routine phone call between an incoming national security adviser and the Russian ambassador helped launch a 2½-year investigation of a new president remains an important story.

The list contains names of recipients who may have received Flynn's identity in response to a request processed between November 8, 2016, and January 31, 2017, to unmask an identity that had been generically referred to in a National Security Agency foreign intelligence report.

Trump hopes for COVID-19 vaccine by end of year, 'maybe before'
Government experts evaluated some 100 vaccine candidates and identified 14 they believe have the best chance of succeeding. The World Health Organization sounded a cautious note on Thursday.

Jobless data show economic pain as Trump eyes United States reopening
Since the outbreak began, more than 36 million Americans have sought jobless benefits to weather the economic slowdown. Initial jobless claims fell to just below three million in the week ending May 9, down slightly from 3.2 million.

FDA chief self-quarantines after exposure to person with coronavirus
Fauci said his "modified quarantine" will consist of him staying at home as much as possible and teleworking for the next 14 days. Fauci said he may consider venturing to his office at the National Institutes of Health, where he would be the only one working.

The full list includes 39 people, including former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former FBI Director James Comey, Obama's White House chief of staff Denis McDonough and then-U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power. Biden elaborated in an interview on MSNBC's "The Last Word" hosted by Lawrence O'Donnell, that "it is not something the president is entitled to do, to direct a prosecution or decide to drop a case".

Flynn later pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents about whether he had talked with the Russian ambassador about USA sanctions on Moscow and an upcoming United Nations vote. Last week, Obama told a large gathering of alumni from his administration that the Justice Department's decision to drop the Flynn case put the "rule of law at risk". "That's the kind of stuff where you being to get anxious that basic-not just institutional norms-but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk".

Trump has tried to rally his supporters around the claim to revive enthusiasm among voters disappointed by his handling of the pandemic.

Earlier Monday, the President was asked about one of his Mother's Day tweets where he seemingly accused Obama of some kind of conspiracy against his administration.

"Every Deep State traitor deserves to be brought to justice for their heinous actions".

But the Biden campaign dismissed the revelation, with spokesman Andrew Bates saying it simply indicates "the breadth and depth of concern across the American government" at the time about Flynn's conversations with foreign representatives. "Any suggestion otherwise is flat-out a lie". The buzz about top Obama administration officials "unmasking" Michael Flynn has added fuel to the fire.

US President Donald Trump and Republicans are launching a broad election-year attack on the foundation of the Russian Federation investigation, including declassifying intelligence information to try to place senior Obama administration officials under scrutiny for routine actions. "Nice Guy. No more talk!"

"This is incredibly troubling and shocking that the previous administration under President Obama under Vice President Biden's specific instruction was eavesdropping on an American, and an American adviser to the next President", Paul said at a hastily convened news conference on Capitol Hill Wednesday. I don't think that's been done before.
