In the ongoing saga of Trump and his deep ties to Russia, a new wrinkle. According to CNN, the White House tried to put the kibosh on stories published last week concerning evidence that there were in fact ongoing communications between Trump's associates and Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.
This is, in the words of former VP Joe Biden, a big fcking deal.
CNN has interviewed "multiple federal officials," and found that "the FBI rejected a recent White House request to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Donald Trump's associates and Russians known to US intelligence during the 2016 presidential campaign."
Now why would they worry about that, again?
As a congressman, Virginia Democrat Tom Perriello made national waves for holding a series of town hall meetings with Tea Party critics and for supporting the strongest elements of the Obama agenda despite representing a deep red district. In January, he surprised the commonwealth by challenging the Democratic lieutenant governor, Ralph Northam, in the race for Virginia’s governorship, which is up for grabs this November as Terry McAuliffe steps down from his term-limited position.
“The FBI rejected a recent White House request to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Donald Trump’s associates and Russians known to US intelligence during the 2016 presidential campaign,” CNN reports.
“White House officials had sought the help of the bureau and other agencies investigating the Russia matter to say that the reports were wrong and that there had been no contacts.”
“The direct communications between the White House and the FBI were unusual because of decade-old restrictions on such contacts.
Jeff Sessions just gave his private prison cronies a pat on the behind by rescinding President Obama's order restricting the use of private prisons for federal prisoners and detainees.
As you can imagine, stock prices for those merchants of doom shot right up.
Here's what just happened to the stock for CoreCivic (formerly CCA), the nation's largest private prison company: pic.twitter.com/VyndB39H0o

CoreCivic is what used to be Corrections Corp of America, an evil, disastrous, horrible company that has a longstanding record of mistreating prisoners.
But with all those deportations, I guess they're expecting to need those private prisons.

Additionally, CoreCivic spent over $1.6 million in 2016 to lobby Republican congress members in regards to using private prisons for immigration detention facilities.
“The White House and prominent Republicans have largely dismissed the noisy eruption of civic activism at town-hall meetings across the U. S. as the work of professional organizers and paid activists, partly because MoveOn and other liberal groups have offered help,” the Wall Street Journal reports.
“Interviews suggest otherwise. Many participants are first-timers who echo in passion, though not in politics, the people who emerged early in the tea-party movement in 2009, when unhappy voters banded together against what they saw as government overreach by the Obama administration.”
New York Times columnist Charles Blow this week pushed back against calls for liberals to reach out to President Donald Trump's supporters.
In his column on Thursday, Blow responds to people like New York Times writer Nicholas Kristof who have cautioned against vilifying Trump voters.
Blow reminds his readers that Democrats were in a similar position after President Ronald Reagan's re-election in 1984.
"Democrats were whining and moaning, shuffling their feet and scratching their heads," he writes.
