Mueller Eyes Ukrainians Who Attended Trump Inauguration

The special counsel is looking at how a number of Ukrainian politicians secured seats at the Trump inauguration, the New York Times reported Thursday. The report comes amid indications that probes into the Trump inauguration — and what it did with the record $107 million it raised — are heating up. At the same time, peace plans that various Ukrainians were ferrying to Washington have also become a focus of the investigation. The Ukrainian politicos who attended Trump’s inauguration were happy...

Who Exactly Did Paul Manafort Give Trump Campaign Data To?

Yesterday the New York Times revised its revelation on who Manafort gave Trump campaign polling data to, shifting it from Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to two Ukrainian clients of his: Rinat Akhmetov and Serhiy Lyovochkin. Both backed former Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych, and both find themselves frequently accused of supporting pro-Russian political movements in Ukraine. But who are they, really? And why would Manafort use his former Russian intelligence associate Konstantin Kilimnik...

Filing In Patten Case Deepens Mystery About His Cooperation With The Feds

A mystery filing in the case of W. Sam Patten, the D.C. lobbyist who pleaded guilty to acting as an unregistered foreign agent in August, adds a curious wrinkle to what has generally been regarded as a relatively minor case. On New Year’s Eve, prosecutors moved to keep a routine status update in Patten’s case entirely under wraps. The joint status reports filed after plea agreements but before sentencing have typically included a broad reference to the defendant’s ongoing cooperation. The fac...

Everything That Happened This Week In The Trump-Russia Story

Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopolous appeared before a federal judge to be sentenced for lying to the FBI on Friday. Ahead of the hearing, a sentencing memorandum gave us some new information, including that President Trump personally signed off on Papadopoulos’ offer to set up a meeting with Vladimir Putin during the campaign. Papadopolous’ attorney argued in court Friday that Trump “hindered that investigation more” than Papadopoulos did. Papadopolous was ultimately sentenced to 1...
