This is the last call we'll have: Trump's new lawyer sends cryptic message to Rachel Maddow

. . . . "Who said anything about statute of limitations? Why are you bringing that up? The statute of limitations for prosecuting what crimes exactly?" she mused.

To get to the bottom of it, her producer contacted Dowd and got through to him.

"We have no evidence that any of these [Trump business] entities are under investigation," Dowd told Maddow's producer. "I'm beginning to think it's not true. I'm beginning to wonder where the hell it came from."

He then finished the call by telling the producer, "this is the last call we'll ever have."

"Some days are weirder than others in this job," Maddow concluded. "But you never really expect them to get that weird in conversation with the lead attorney for the president of the united States."

Source: Washington Examiner

Mark Corallo, a spokesman for President Trump's outside legal team, has resigned, according to multiple reports on Thursday.

John Santucci, a senior editorial producer, first reported the news, and said that there is no word yet from Corallo himself. The Washington Post also reported Corallo's ouster.

Corallo has been putting out statements on behalf of Marc Kasowitz, Trump's personal lawyer who is representing the president in any matter concerning the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Trump-Russia investigators probe Jared Kushner-run digital operation

By Peter Stone and Greg Gordon

McClatchy Washington Bureau

Investigators at the House and Senate Intelligence committees and the Justice Department are examining whether the Trump campaign’s digital operation – overseen by Jared Kushner – helped guide Russia’s sophisticated voter targeting and fake news attacks on Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Congressional and Justice Department investigators are focusing on whether Trump’s campaign pointed Russian cyber operatives to certain voting jurisdictions in key states – areas where Trump’s digital team and Republican operatives were spotting unexpected weakness in voter support for Hillary Clinton, according to several people familiar with the parallel inquiries.

Also under scrutiny is the question of whether Trump associates or campaign aides had any role in assisting the Russians in publicly releasing thousands of emails, hacked from the accounts of top Democrats, at turning points in the presidential race, mainly through the London-based transparency web site WikiLeaks.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told McClatchy he wants to know whether Russia’s “fake or damaging news stories” were “coordinated in any way in terms of targeting or in terms of timing or in terms of any other measure … with the (Trump) campaign.”

Rancor at White House as Russia Story Refuses to Let the Page Turn

Source: New York Times

WASHINGTON — If President Trump emerged from his meeting with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia last week hoping he had begun to “move forward” from the controversy over the Kremlin’s election meddling, as advisers put it, his flight home the next day made clear just how overly optimistic that was.

As Air Force One jetted back from Europe on Saturday, a small cadre of Mr. Trump’s advisers huddled in a cabin helping to craft a statement for the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., to give to The New York Times explaining why he met last summer with a lawyer connected to the Russian government. Participants on the plane and back in the United States debated about how transparent to be in the statement, according to people familiar with the discussions.

Ultimately, the people said, the president signed off on a statement from Donald Trump Jr. for The Times that was so incomplete that it required day after day of follow-up statements, each more revealing than the last. It culminated on Tuesday with a release of emails making clear that Mr. Trump’s son believed the Russian lawyer was seeking to meet with him to provide incriminating information about Hillary Clinton as “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”

The Russia story has become the brier patch from which the president seemingly cannot escape. It dominated his trip to Europe last week and, after he leaves on Wednesday night for a couple of days in France, it may dominate that trip as well. Every time Mr. Trump tries to put the furor behind him, more disclosures thrust it back onto the Washington agenda.
