In New Book, Papadopoulos Claims He Was ‘Duped’ By FBI Into Guilty Plea

In a new book obtained by the Wall Street Journal, former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos is attempting to rewrite history. In the book, “Deep State Target,” Papadopoulos reportedly outlines his interactions with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators and suggests he was “duped” by agents into admitting guilt for lying to the FBI, a charge that he served 14 days in prison for. “I realize I misspoke to the FBI,” he reportedly wrote. “The ‘lie’ I was charged with … ce...

Unsurprisingly, Mueller Comes Up Empty

No reader of my previous comments on the subject would expect surprise from me about the verdict of the Mueller report. No one nominated by a major political party to the presidency of the U.S. would have dreamed of cooperating with any foreign power to influence a U.S. presidential election. Aaron Burr, who was thought to be running for vice president but ended by opportunistically challenging Jefferson for president, requiring that the House of Representatives determine the victor, and who was...

WH: ‘We’ve Had No Discussions Internally About These Potential Pardons’

White House principal deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said Monday that there had been “no discussions internally” at the White House about a number of potential pardons for Trump associates caught up in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. In an interview with Gidley, MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson played a clip of former Trump campaign adviser Michael Caputo calling on Trump to pardon Roger Stone, against whom a grand jury handed down a seven-count indictment as part of Mueller’s probe; and G...

Dershowitz Calls Report A ‘Cop-Out’ On Obstruction: ‘Sounds Like A Law School Exam’

Trump fan and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz spewed some unexpected criticism of Robert Mueller’s report on Sunday evening, suggesting he made a “cop-out” decision by allowing Attorney General Bill Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to determine whether Trump obstructed justice. “I thought it was a cop-out for him to say there was not enough evidence to indict … and we’re going to put out a report, on obstruction, we’re going to put a report out that says ‘on the one hand,...

One airline has attempted to cancel its order for Boeing's 737 Max 8. Here's why it would be difficult for other airlines to do the same. (BA)

Garuda Indonesia became the first airline to attempt to cancel its order for Boeing's 737 Max 8 aircraft, a decision the airline announced on Friday. But other airlines won't necessarily follow Garuda's lead in canceling 737 Max 8 orders, said aviation analysts Henry Harteveldt and George Hamlin. The decision to cancel an aircraft order is a difficult one, due to Boeing and Airbus' dominance over the market for large, commercial aircraft, and the series of investments and decisions airlines ma...

Trump Declares Victory Now But Other Legal Troubles Loom In New York

NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump may be reveling in what he sees as “complete and total exoneration” from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, but his legal perils are far from over. Federal and state investigators in New York are deep into investigations of their own into Trump and those in his orbit, probes that some observers have long viewed as every bit as menacing as Mueller’s two-year look into possible collusion with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. “T...

FBI's 'Clothing Match' Expert Changed Testimony To Better Serve Prosecutors, Co-Chairs Nat'l Forensic Committee (techdirt)

A little more than a month ago, we covered the ultra-weird offshoot of FBI forensics spearheaded by Richard Vorder Bruegge. Vorder Bruegge claimed mass-produced clothing like jeans were as unique as fingerprints and DNA. According to his forensic "expertise," a match could be made using only low-res CCTV screengrabs and whole lot of arrows. This peculiar strand of FBI forensics is still in use. Vorder Bruegge, rather than being laughed out of the FBI forensic lab, has risen to a position ...
