Trey Gowdy, who led the Benghazi show trial, is now probing FBI's alleged pro-Hillary Clinton bias. Gowdy is targeting FBI Dep Dir Andrew McCabe & FBI counsel Lisa Page, who are both deeply experienced in Eastern European organized crime cases.

^ Andrew McCabe was the FBI supervisory special agent of the Eurasian Organized Crime Task Force, New York Division. Any surprise that Trump is pushing Grassley, Gowdy, and Sessions to fire him?
^ @RepAdamSchiff : "What we're seeing in our committee is an effort to attack the DOJ, the FBI, & Bob Mueller to undermine the investigations & these institutions out of fear of what they’ll find & try to discredit them in advance." #ComplicitGOP #Maddow

Trump's deputy campaign chair Rick Gates solicited proposals from Israeli company Psy-Group to create fake online identities and use social media manipulation to help Trump defeat Republican primary opponents & Hillary Clinton.
by @MarkMazzettiNYT #Maddow nyti.ms/2E6xgmD
Psy-Group, which is owned by Joel Zamel [who met with Don Jr in AUG 2016] and staffed by former Israeli intelligence operatives, proposed using social media to amplify division among rival campaigns and factions to help Trump defeat Cruz & Clinton.
Aug 3, 2016: Joel Zamel pitched Don Jr a plan to get Trump elected in a meeting arranged by Erik Prince. Zamel's firm, Psy-Group, offers services like "honey traps" & social media manipulation to influence campaigns [just like Cambridge Analytica].

Was there a connection between Russia's Alfa Bank and Trump's Campaign?
The Trump domain was shut down after @nytimes contacted Alfa Bank. “That shows a human interaction...Alfa Bank alerted Trump Org, which shut it down.”

DNS traffic between Russia's Alfa Bank and Trump Tower coincided with Manafort’s time as campaign chair and continued after he left. "It could have been a messaging system" using Webmail to facilitate secret communications via 'foldering,' a method favored by Manafort.
Prominent computer expert @ljean says the Alfa Bank-Trump Tower communication may have been used to coordinate the movement of data. Cambridge Analytica stole millions Facebook records, which could have been transferred to the Russian govt to guide US voter targeting.

In a covert effort to obtain Clinton emails, now-deceased GOP operative Peter Smith raised at least $100,000 from wealthy donors under the guise of a "Scholarship Fund for Russian students" – after US IC warned of Russia's election interference.
#Maddow on.wsj.com/2C08j9K
Peter Smith went to extraordinary lengths to ensure secrecy of his operation [to enlist Russian hackers to obtain Clinton emails], using a Gmail account named “Robert Tyler” that he and his associates communicated with by leaving notes for each other in the draft folder.
Financier Charles Ortel spoke with Peter Smith on the phone hours before his death re a new project and Smith had sounded excited, brainstorming about next steps. Ortel was stunned Smith had taken his life soon after, leaving a note which read: “NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER.”

An uplifting reminder on this really crappy day: Manafort associate Sam Patten, who pleaded guilty on Aug 31, admitted to Mueller that a pro-Putin, Russian mafia-linked Ukranian oligarch funneled money into Trump's inaugural fund – which is a violation of federal campaign laws.

SCOOP: A judge who sits on the DC circuit court with Kavanaugh sent a series of complaints about Kavanaugh to Chief Justice Roberts starting 3 weeks ago. Roberts has chosen for the time being not to refer them for investigation.
by @CarolLeonnig #Maddow wapo.st/2BZSW16?tid=ss…
That Roberts has not referred the cases for investigation has caused concern in the legal community. If Kavanaugh is confirmed, the misconduct complaints against him may not become public and instead will be dismissed.
"Never before has a Supreme Court nominee been poised to join the court while a fellow judge [a Bush 41 appointee] recommends that a series of misconduct claims against that nominee warrant review."

“Supreme Discrepancies: Kavanaugh’s Financial Disclosure Reports Conflict With His Senate Testimony”
by @gregolear #Maddow medium.com/@gregolear/sup…
Kavanaugh had huge debt in 2006 [year he was confirmed as a federal judge] but somehow bought a $1.2M house with no decrease in his bank accounts then, inexplicably, his bank account got fatter in 2008-2009 with no discernible increase in income.
