From: AlJazeeraEnglish
Duration: 24:31

Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election in the United States has long plagued Donald Trump since he took office. And now a federal grand jury has concluded the Russians did play a role.

On Friday, 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies were indicted for “meddling in the Presidential campaign”.

Russia says there’s no evidence to support that. But the US Special Counsel Robert Mueller says an attempt was made to sway public opinion and promote Republican Donald Trump’s campaign ahead of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

So, what happens next?

James Comey slams weak Donald Trump

Former FBI Director James Comey can only sit back and watch as his Trump-Russia investigation is ultimately carried out by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Trump fired Comey to try to sabotage the investigation, leaving Comey sidelined even as Mueller picks Trump apart. That hasn’t kept Comey from periodically weighing in, however. Just as Trump was taking the stage for an embarrassingly narcissistic display at a pointless rally on Friday night, Comey took to Twitter to slam him.

Comey has taken to largely speaking in historical quotes, and as the narcissistic Trump was taking the stage to seek applause from his remaining fanatics, Comey settled on a quote from Edmund Burke. Comey tweeted “Applause is the spur of noble minds, the end and aim of weak ones.” There was no question whatsoever that Comey was aiming his quote directly at Trump, and thus calling him “weak.”

James Comey doesn’t tweet often, but when he does, it’s usually a response or veiled warning shot at Trump. For instance, his previous tweet was about a meeting with the publisher of his upcoming book, which is largely an expose into his troubling stretch dealing with Trump: “In NYC to meet with my publisher. Hope leadership book will be useful. Reassuring to see Lady Liberty standing tall even in rough weather.”

Meanwhile Robert Mueller has arrested four of Donald Trump’s people in the Russia scandal, and two of them have already pleaded guilty. The investigation is still ramping up, and it’s a matter of when, not if, Trump is taken down.

Palmer Report: The maddening part of Michael Flynns plea deal against Donald Trump

Make no mistake: Michael Flynn’s plea deal against Donald Trump was the best possible outcome for us and Robert Mueller, and it was the worst possible outcome for Trump. If Mueller had been forced to arrest an uncooperative Flynn, it would have been a failure, because the entire point was to get him to flip. There is however, in the short term, a maddening aspect to Flynn’s deal. I suspect you share my pain on this.

Seeing Michael Flynn in handcuffs, after the things he did to this country, would have been cathartic but I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about the short term impact that his arrest would have had in terms of moving the public forward on this scandal. All along, much of the public has been hearing “Trump committed treason with Russia” from one side and “Russia is fake news” from the other side, and they’ve been waiting to see which way things actually went.

The arrest of Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort six weeks ago was a big deal that convinced a lot of people of the “realness” of the Trump-Russia scandal. If Michael Flynn had been arrested on the full boat of charges he was facing, including conspiracy to commit kidnapping and all the other cartoon villain stuff he’s accused of, it would have set off pandemonium among the public. Trump’s National Security Adviser tried to kidnap a guy as part of the Trump-Russia scandal? How many heads would that have turned? Trump-Russia would have become something straight out of the O.J. trial.

Because Michael Flynn cut a deal instead, the general public wasn’t hit with the shock value of what would have been one of the most surreal arrests of all time. Those of us paying attention have figured out that his extraordinarily lenient deal means he turned over proof that Donald Trump and the other big fish are guilty. We know where this is going. Yet for the moment, a whole lot of people are still left wondering just how “real” this scandal is. For that, we’ll have to wait for the arrest of one of the bigger fish Flynn flipped on.

The post The maddening part of Michael Flynn’s plea deal against Donald Trump appeared first on Palmer Report.

FBI Warns of Mounting Collaboration Between Nations, Criminals to Launch Cyberattacks

FBI Director Christopher Wray warned Thursday that adversarial governments are more often collaborating with criminals to carryout cyber attacks against the United States.

Wray said the indictment of a Canadian national who pleaded guilty on Tuesday to helping Russian spies hack into Yahoo email accounts reflect “one of the more dangerous, emerging threats” facing the United States today, known in the intelligence community as a “blended threat.”

“We are seeing an emergence of that kind of collaboration,” Wray testified before the House Homeland Security Committee, noting that until recently governments and criminals worked separately. “Now there’s this collusion, if you will, that’s occurring on a number of instances like mercenaries being used to commit cyber attacks.”

The Justice Department announced charges in March against Karim Baratov, a 22-year-old Canadian citizen, and three other men, including two officers of Russia’s Federal Security Service, or FSB, for their involvement in the 2014 hack into Yahoo that affected 500 million accounts.

U.S. law enforcement officials said Baratov, who they dubbed a “hacker-for-hire,” acknowledged breaking into email accounts and selling the passwords to an agent of the FSB, a Russian intelligence agency.

The individuals targeted included Russian officials, a European diplomat, a former economic minister from a neighboring country, and a prominent banker.

The case confirmed longstanding suspicions that Russia’s government hires non-government hackers and uses its spy services to facilitate criminal activity in addition to conducting espionage.

Wray, who President Donald Trump handpicked to replace ousted FBI Director James Comey in June, said Russia is attempting to assert its dominance in the world by relying on asymmetric warfare to “damage and weaken” the United States

To combat the threat, Wray said he has set up a “foreign influence task force” within the bureau made up of different divisions, including counterintelligence, cyber, and criminal investigation. He said the agency would also coordinate closely with the Department of Homeland Security, which is charged with overseeing critical election infrastructure, to prevent against cyberattacks.

Trump Calls Reports That He Will Fire Tillerson Fake News

President Donald Trump on Friday dismissed press reports that he plans on firing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, calling them “fake news” in a tweet.

Trump’s comments followed multiple reports, citing administration officials, that the White House has developed a plan to oust Tillerson and replace him with CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who in turn would be replaced by Republican Sen. Tom Cotton (Ark.).

“The media has been speculating that I fired Rex Tillerson or that he would be leaving soonFake News!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “He’s not leaving.”

Trump added that although he and Tillerson “disagree on certain subjects, (I call the final shots) we work well together and America is highly respected again!”

The tweet also linked to a post on Trump’s Instagram account, which includes a picture of Tillerson’s swearing-in ceremony.

Trump has frequently been at odds with Tillerson, airing some of their disagreements publicly. The president once said that Tillerson was “wasting his time trying to negotiate” with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

“Save your energy, Rex, we’ll do what has to be done,” he tweeted.

In October, both Trump and Tillerson denied reports that the secretary of state threatened to resign, calling them “fake news.” Some news outlets reported at the time that Tillerson had privately called Trump a “moron” at a meeting over the summer.

Remembering Stalins Hunger

History is the only laboratory we have in which to test the effect of ideas. Scientific knowledge may progress by abandoning its old notions and even forgetting them. But political knowledgethe interplay of regimes and policies and personalitiesadvances only while we recall the political arrangements of the past and what came of them. In the old adage of Dr. Johnson, humankind is far more often in need of being reminded than of being instructed.

The modern historian Anne Applebaum is determined that no one forget what Soviet communism really was, and in many ways her latest book, Red Famine, is simply a cry for remembrance of the Holodomorthe great Soviet starvation of the early 1930s, in which nearly 4 million Ukrainians died because Joseph Stalin had an idea, and the political regime he ruled allowed him to implement it.

“The starvation of a human body,” Applebaum notes, “always follows the same course. In the first phase the body consumes its stores of glucose. . . . In the second phase, . . . the body begins to consume its own fats. . . . In the third phase, the body devours its own proteins.” In the endskin thinned, eyes sclerotic, belly swollen, the mind beaten down by hallucinationsa mortal apathy takes hold as the body slumps toward death.

Just as starvation follows a familiar course in each individual, so food shortages all follow a recognizable pattern. As Amartya Sen showed in his classic 1981 study, Poverty and Famines, government is a primary cause of scarcity. Modern famines aren’t acts of God so much as acts of politics: born of the actions and inactions of distant officials, the incompetence and cupidity of local administrators, and, perhaps most of all, the imposition of bad policy at the highest reaches of power.

Here in 2017, the centennial of the Russian Revolution, Applebaum insists that we look again at how the Ukrainian famine was allowed to begin and how it was allowed to continue. The particulars she relates are fascinating, but, as Sen would have predicted, the overall story traces a murderous arc that ought to be familiar: the death of millions in the exercise of tyrannical power. When we forget what Communist tyranny did, we forget why we must always resist its return.

In the battles that followed the Bolshevik revolution, the system of Soviet  republics slowly emerged in part as Lenin’s way to coopt the peasants and tie them to the Russian government that was determined to keep the breadbasket of Ukrainian territory within the new Communist territory. Stalin began his own rule by expanding the policy, allowing Ukraine to keep some distinctive national elements.

By 1927, however, Stalin felt the political situation had become both more secure and more fragile. International threats loomed large in the Russian mind, even while greater controls over the population allowed large-scale attempts to modernize the Soviet republics. The peasants as a class, especially the richer peasants known as kulaks, resisted Communist efforts and thereby seemed in league with foreign powers. So Stalin began confiscating land to form collective farms.

It was, in conception, a political masterstroke, aimed at solving all his problems at once. Forcing the peasants to join collective farms would disempower the kulaks and thereby weaken Ukrainian identity. Collectivization promised a uniform modernizing of agriculture, which would increase yields across the Soviet empire. Even more, it would allow greater state control of agricultureproviding Moscow with Ukrainian food to distribute to less treasonous Soviet areas, ensuring their loyalty to Moscow. The collective farms would even provide grain that could be sold abroad, bringing in the cash necessary for Stalin’s radical plans to build a modern industrial base for the Soviet Union.

Unfortunately, the farming population resisted, which Stalin took as sedition. Brutal police enforcers from the cities were sent in to punish the peasants, killing anyone they suspected of hiding grain and confiscating even the seed they needed for the next planting. And so the familiar tale of modern famine began to march toward its inevitable conclusion. “Starvation,” Applebaum points out, “was the result of the forcible removal of food from peoples’ home; roadblocks that prevented peasants seeing work or food; blacklists imposed on farms and villages.”

In the Great Famine of 1932 and 1933, cannibalism became an open secret. All pets and farm animals disappeared. The hunger of the farmers reduced their strength to work the farms, worsening the crisis. And around 3.9 million Ukrainians starved to death, with at least a million more elsewhere in the Soviet Union. None of that famine originated in the old causes of bad weather. Stalin killed the peasants because he had ordered a policy that no one could resist.

Robert Conquest’s path-breaking 1986 study, The Harvest of Sorrow, convinced most readers that the famine had in fact taken place, though the Soviets never fully admitted it and, as Applebaum acidly points out, Western journalists (notably the New York Times‘s Walter Duranty) helped keep the millions of deaths hidden from the world.

The only question that remains these days is whether Stalin directly intended the deaths. He certainly caused them with his policies, and he was obviously willing to allow the slaughter to continue, once it had began. But did he want a Ukrainian genocide from the beginning? Given the archival evidence of Soviet pride in destroying the kulaks, the answer seems to be both yes and no. Stalin planned on any number of deaths, and he pursued his agricultural reforms even once it was clear that no goal other than punishing the peasants was being served. “Stalin did not seek to kill all Ukrainians,” Applebaum writes. But he did intend to eliminate “the most active and engaged.”

In Red Famine, Applebaum shows that she understands the purposes that remembering the Holodomorserves today. The Ukrainians have repurposed the particular Soviet oppression as general Russian oppression, with the Great Famine understood as a deliberate genocideand thus a rallying cry for Ukraine to resist encroachment from Putin’s post-Soviet Russia.

With her 2004 Pulitzer Prize-winning volume, Gulag: A History, Anne Applebaum endeavored to return to conscious memory the Soviet prison system that figures from Alexander Solzhenitsyn to Robert Conquest had chronicled. It was a fine book, just as Red Famine is a fine book. But Applebaum’s greatest strengthher most admirable gift to her readersis her unwillingness to let us forget just how relentlessly murderous, cruel, and ideological the Soviet regime really was.

She knows, in other words, that here in 2017, a hundred years after the Bolshevik revolution, we are still in need of being reminded what the laboratory of history has taught us about the evil of communism.

Michael Flynn pleads guilty to lying to FBI as Trump-Russia inquiry takes critical step

  • Flynn ready to testify about contact between Trump campaign and Russians
  • I recognize that my actions were wrong I am working to set things right

In a startling breakthrough for prosecutors investigating potential collusion between Russia and the Donald Trump presidential campaign, former national security adviser Michael Flynn announced on Friday that he was cooperating with prosecutors and ready to testify about Russian contacts.

After months of silence and invisibility, Flynn walked into a federal courthouse in Washington DC on Friday morning and pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI. The plea was part of a larger deal with special counsel Robert Muellers team, and strikes at the heart of the Trump White House.
