Bad intel from Russia influenced Comey's Clinton announcement: report
Former FBI Director James Comey’s controversial decision to detail the FBI’s findings in the Hillary Clinton email case without Justice Department input was influenced by a dubious Russian document that the FBI now considers to be bad intelligence
Wow. Mueller is going to have his hands full. So Comey acted on fake Russian intel. He sure made a lot of bad decisions that all involved Hillary. There is more to this story.
This Russian investigation into Trump is like one of those Russian nesting dolls, except every time you open one, the doll inside is somehow bigger. And instead of it being a doll, it’s a horrible conspiracy concocted by Russian hackers to systematically erode America’s democratic freedoms. - James Corden

Attorney General Jeff Sessions did not disclose on security clearance forms that he met twice last year with Russia's ambassador, CNN reported Wednesday.
The form, the SF-86, asks applicants to disclose any contacts with a foreign government or its representatives over the past seven years.
Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores told CNN that an FBI employee who was helping Sessions complete the form advised him that he did not have to disclose meetings with foreign ambassadors that took place during his time in the Senate.

Loose Lips Sink Ships Seems To Be The Intent
A growing and critical narrative of the Trump administration — depending on one’s political leanings — is the alleged leaking of critical intelligence in a manner that undermines strategic allies and covert investigations and operations.
After the name of bomber Salman Abedi was leaked to US media just hours after the attack, which left 22 dead — and photos printed by NY Times that revealed the type of bomb used in the Manchester suicide attack — it now appears that Prime Minister Theresa May is jumping on board with those critical of some loose lips.

And according to The Washington Post, the president asked two top intelligence officials to publicly deny evidence of collusion, and also asked them to find ways to get FBI Director James Comey to drop his investigation.
