Starting a new thread for official news on congressional or special prosecutor actions re: the Russia investigation. The Russia thread will continue for the unofficial pieces that drip out from time to time (if they continue). News regarding Flynn might start going in here, not sure.

First legit news: https://twitter.com/AliABCNews/statu...24990001639425
".@SenatorBurr
says Gen. Flynn's legal team has told Senate Intel committee that Flynn will NOT honor their subpoena for Russia-related docs”


Perhaps related: 'Trump
sends private message to embattled Flynn: "Stay strong”'


Edit: Politico seems to have predicted this a few days ago -

I can't help here, but I hope we get a Baba MAGA before it's all said and done.

Also, this tweet from MA rep:

As the Representative of Salem, MA, I can confirm that this is false. https://t.co/8yJIzZBSE8— Seth Moulton (@sethmoulton) May 18, 2017

Did the White House ever release a statement in regards to American citizens being attacked by Turkish security?

you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods,
you will understand why I dismiss yours." - Stephen F. Roberts

I'm clueless as to the implications but Dems seem unhappy with Rosensteins briefing. I'll post his statement if I'm on my laptop later

“So there are five of them taking the Fifth Amendment, like you see on the mob, right?” he said at another rally in Iowa, though it was three former Clinton staff members who pleaded the Fifth. “The mob takes the Fifth Amendment. If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”
http://www.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1609/26/se.01.html

TRUMP: That was more than a mistake. That was done purposely. OK? That was not a mistake. That was done purposely. When you have your staff taking the Fifth Amendment, taking the Fifth so they're not prosecuted, when you have the man that set up the illegal server taking the Fifth, I think it's disgraceful. And believe me, this country thinks it's -- really thinks it's disgraceful, also.

Not a tweet but still in the spirit of Trump saying something that can later be used against him (or in this case his admin)
