Trump Jr. Should Be 'Concerned' - Putin Ally's Wiretapped Calls Sent to FBI, Says Spanish Prosecutor


Trump Jr. Should Be 'Concerned': Putin Ally's Wiretapped Calls Sent to FBI, Says Spanish Prosecutor

Trump Jr. should be "concerned": Russian oligarch's wiretapped calls sent to FBI


A Spanish prosecutor who has spearheaded investigations into Russian organised crime said wiretapped conversations involving a pro-Putin oligarch who met with Donald Trump Jr. had been sent to the FBI.

In remarks reported by Yahoo News, José Grinda told the Hudson Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington, that Spanish police had wiretapped conversations between Alexander Torshin, a deputy governor of Russia's Central Bank, and convicted money launderer and mafia boss Alexander Romanov.

"Just a few months ago, the wiretaps of these telephone conversations were given to the FBI," Grinda said in response to a question from the outlet.

Torshin, who has forged close links with the National Rifle Association (NRA), spoke with Trump Jr., president Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., during a meeting of gun rights lobby groups in May 2016.

#NunesResign is trending today on Twitter

just an fyi

Whoa! MOOnes had a mad yesterday with CNN!


Sounds like he was happy and having a good day
Oliver Darcy

When CNN approached @DevinNunes for comment on this story, he replied, “I don't talk to you in this lifetime or the next lifetime.”

"At any time," Nunes added. "On any question."https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/22/politics/nunes-vienna-trip-ukrainian-prosecutor-biden/index.html

Sondland lied again!!

Multiple tweet thread

Susan Simpson
I just realized that, for whatever reason, Sondland got his testimony about his "no quid pro quo" call with President Trump wrong. He testified that the call took place on September 9th, but that can't possibly be true





This is why there will ALWAYS be that 35% rooting for repugs!

Covington Woman Explains Why She Told GOP Crowd Bevin Won

Posting a few paragraphs can’t do this justice. Serious derangement

But here’s a hint:


Great NY Times live analysis on Dr. Hill's laying the boom against Castor/MOOnes!!

Katie RogersWhite House Correspondent
Charlie, she is underscoring the point that Sondland had been ordered to stray away from national security and foreign policy to undertake a political errand. And as Sondland himself testified, it was at the hands of people at the most senior levels of government, right on up to the president.

This, in a nutshell, is the whole conflict that has been animating these hearings.

Hill is really running over the Republicans now.

With a few exceptions, the audience here in the hearing room is hanging on to Hill’s every word.

I agree Nick. She is nailing it and she is not letting the Republicans interrupt her.

Hill is now undercutting another point Republicans have been making. She says Tim Morrison misrepresented concerns he said she had about Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a key witness.

Katie RogersKatie RogersWhite House Correspondent
It should be noted that Hill has talked about her anger and discomfort with Sondland during that time period, but she is not rattled as she is relaying all of this. If Republicans might’ve hoped to weaponize the anger she is talking about, she is not showing it here.

OMG! This would make my day if the Dems did this in today's hearing!!



Devin Nunes Billed Taxpayers $63,000 for a Jaunt to Europe Chasing Accused Fraudster Lev Parnas' Disinformation https://www.emptywheel.net/2019/11/21/devin-nunes-bills-taxpayers-63000-for-a-jaunt-to-europe-chasing-lev-parnas-disinformation/

Devin Nunes Billed Taxpayers $63,000 for a Jaunt to Europe Chasing Accused Fraudster Lev Parnas'...
Devin Nunes billed taxpayers $63,000 last year for an all expenses paid trip to consume Lev Parnas' disinformation last year.

HPSCI members can't under rules of comity, call out Nunes for his Lev Parnas tour of Europe, but they could enter the article into the congressional record to tie Parnas' name to Nunes.
