Was a Trump Server Communicating With Russia?

Source: Slate

In late July, one of these scientists—who asked to be referred to as Tea Leaves, a pseudonym that would protect his relationship with the networks and banks that employ him to sift their data—found what looked like malware emanating from Russia. The destination domain had Trump in its name, which of course attracted Tea Leaves’ attention. But his discovery of the data was pure happenstance—a surprising needle in a large haystack of DNS lookups on his screen. “I have an outlier here that connects to Russia in a strange way,” he wrote in his notes. He couldn’t quite figure it out at first. But what he saw was a bank in Moscow that kept irregularly pinging a server registered to the Trump Organization on Fifth Avenue.

FBI’s James Comey Opposed Naming Russia As An Election Meddler, Second Source Confirms

We have two source confirmation of this story now.
Notice the language. It is almost certainly a *current* FBI official

FBI Director James Comey privately argued against having his bureau sign onto a statement saying the Russian government was meddling in the U.S. election, CNBC first reported on Monday, citing “a former FBI official.”

A source familiar with the interagency discussions confirms to The Huffington Post that Comey declined to do so because, specifically, he was concerned the statement was coming too close to the election. The source who spoke to HuffPost is not a former FBI official and spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.

Evan McMullin is ex-CIA isn't he?

The CIA has never really liked the FBI all that much.

Trump Aide Secretly Visited Russia...

This is a conservative rag. But the editor in chief HATES Trump.

They have been cut in on an exclusive, it seems.

The only NEW INFO here is an update to the story that is very interesting.


Carter Page, a then foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump, spent several days in Russia secretly, right before the DNC hack by Russia was released. Not only did he slam the United States, Page met secretly with Russia’s deputy Prime Minister – and possibly another Russian official whom Donald Trump has praised openly on Twitter since 2013.

Trumps in Trouble. Let's review what we learned today, kids...

First, some background
0) Sept. 28 asks Comey if Trump is being investigated for ties to Russia. Comey won't answer.


1) FBI has had the Abedin emails for weeks.
2) Only informed Comey (supposedly) last week.
3) Jason Chaffetz re-endorses (after un-endorsing following tape) Trump Thursday before he publically announces receipt of letter by Comey
4) Comey sends letter. Is tweeted out before ranking committee members (our side) see it.
5) Clinton campaign does NOT freak out, and immediately begin pressuring for full release
6) Story in WSJ that there is a group of FBI agents following Breitbart stories and trying to investigate Clinton over them.
7) Group is ordered to stand down, and they rebel, forcing Comey to write letter.
6) Judge to issue a warrant to release emails
7) Harry Reid sends a letter critiquing Comey and asking why there has been no follow up on a request he made about Trump ties to Russia
8) Many current and former high ranking law enforcement officials critique Comey
9) Tonight, calls for Comey to resign begin

Also, just for fun, remember there are two big opposition drops due this week. And consider this tweet from Jesse F. Ferguson
(HRC's deputy press secretary)

Sleep tight, my monkeys.

Anyone else find it odd...

That the Trump campaign hasn't called out Harry Reid for implying they are being investigated for links to Russia?

Me? I find that very odd.

I know I'm in the minority about Comey but

I honestly think he is just too stupid to live.

I don't think he was actually trying to do politics by other means. I think he's just a goddamn moron.
