  3. By Kevin Daley - Former White House counsel will stand trial in a Washington, D.C. federal court Aug. 12 on charges that he made false and misleading statements to the Department of Justice regarding work he performed for a foreign government. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson set the date in a Friday scheduling order. The order provides that Craig has until May 10 to file a motion to dismiss the charges. Jackson said any changes to the schedule are unlikely. “Given this compressed schedule, which the parties have considered and requested, the court will not be inclined to grant any motions to extend the deadlines set forth above absent exigent circumstances,” Jackson’s order reads. Craig served as the White House’s top lawyer under former President Barack Obama. After leaving the Obama administration, he joined Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom to lead a global policy and litigation group. Skadden Arps worked with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on behalf of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych beginning in 2012. Manafort and the firm prepared and promoted a report concerning Ukraine’s prosecution of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, one of Yanukovych’s domestic political adversaries. The Tymoshenko prosecution was widely criticized in the west as a sham. The Justice Department says Craig misled government lawyers who inquired about the nature of the firm’s work for the Yanukovych government throughout 2012 and 2013. Special counsel Robert Mueller placed those efforts under renewed scrutiny. The firm has since acknowledged its work for the Yanukovych government and reached a settlement with the Justice Department. It agreed to register as an agent of Ukraine under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) and pay a fine of $4.6 million. Craig has pleaded not guilty to all charges. “I did not participate in a scheme to mislead the government or conceal material facts,” Craig said in a statement. “This prosecution is unprecedented and unjustified. I am confident that both the judge and the jury will agree with me.” Craig has ties to other prominent Democrats. He served as special counsel in the White House during the impeachment trial of former President Bill Clinton and represented former Democratic Sen. John Edwards, who was charged and acquitted for campaign finance violations. Attorney General William Barr released a redacted version of the special counsel’s report on Thursday.

  5. By Chuck Ross - Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report revealed new details about the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn According to the report, the FBI investigated Flynn’s possible ties to Russia earlier than previously known Mueller was also authorized to investigate Flynn over four separate matters. The FBI was investigating Michael Flynn’s possible relationship with the Russian government much earlier than previously known, the special counsel’s report revealed. Flynn, who served as President Trump’s national security adviser, was also under investigation for four separate sets of allegations, says the report, which was published on Thursday. It was already known that Flynn was under investigation over phone calls he had with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in late December 2016, during the presidential transition period. Flynn pleaded guilty in the special counsel’s investigation on Dec. 1, 2017, for making false statements about those phone calls. But Mueller’s report reveals for the first time that Flynn was a target of the FBI’s Russia probe before the Kislyak calls. “Previously, the FBI had opened an investigation of Flynn based on his relationship with the Russian government,” reads the report, which cited FBI interviews given by former Justice Department official Mary McCord and former FBI Director James Comey. “Flynn’s contacts with Kislyak became a key component of that investigation.” It is unclear what would have prompted scrutiny of Flynn’s ties to Russia prior to his Kislyak calls. Flynn was reportedly one of the four Trump associates initially placed under FBI investigation. The bureau opened a counterintelligence investigation, code-named “Crossfire Hurricane,” on July 31, 2016, after receiving a tip from the Australian government regarding Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos. In congressional testimony in December, Comey said that four individuals were initially placed under investigation. It is still not clear if the file against Flynn was opened at the same time as Papadopoulos’s, or if that happened later. One area of investigation may have been Flynn’s visit to Moscow in December 2015. The retired lieutenant general was paid $45,000 to attend an event hosted by RT, the Russia-owned news outlet. Flynn sat at the same table as Russian president Vladimir Putin. It has also been reported that American intelligence authorities were provided a tip regarding Flynn’s interactions back in February 2014 with a Russian-British academic at Cambridge University. Flynn served as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency at the time of the visit to Cambridge. The event was hosted by Sir Richard Dearlove, the former head of MI6, and Stefan Halper, an academic who has been identified as a longtime FBI and CIA informant. According to The Washington Post, Dearlove and Halper grew concerned with Flynn’s interactions with the Cambridge academic, Svetlana Lokhova. Those concerns were conveyed to American and British intelligence, though it is not certain when that occurred. Lokhova has pushed back aggressively on reporting that has suggested that anything improper transpired during her interactions with Flynn. The fact that Flynn was under investigation for four sets of allegations was also not previously known. According to the Mueller report, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein included the Flynn matters in a memo to the special counsel on Aug. 2, 2017 that authorized various components of the investigation. Rosenstein authorized Mueller to investigate allegations that Trump campaign associates Carter Page, Paul Manafort and Papadopoulos “committed a crime or crimes by colluding with Russian government officials with respect to the Russian government’s efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.” Rosenstein also authorized Mueller to investigate Manafort’s Ukraine business activities, as well as whether Papadopoulos was working as an unregistered foreign agent of the Israeli government. “Four sets of allegations involving Michael Flynn, the former National Security Advisor to President Trump,” were also authorized for investigation, Mueller’s report says. Manafort was convicted in federal court on charges related to his Ukraine work. But Mueller found no evidence that any of the Trump advisers worked with Russia to influence the election. In addition to his calls with Kislyak and his false statements to the FBI, it was already known that Flynn was investigated as a possible unregistered foreign agent of the Turkish government. Flynn’s company, Flynn Intel Group, entered a $600,000 contract in August 2016 with a Turkish businessman with close ties to the Turkish government. The contract was routed through the businessman’s Netherlands-based shell company, as The Daily Caller first reported. Flynn registered as a foreign agent of Turkey on March 7, 2017. He is expected to testify at the trial of his former business partner, Bijan Kian, who was indicted as an unregistered foreign agent of Turkey. The Turkish businessman, Ekim Alptekin, was also indicted, but he remains in Turkey. Follow Chuck on Twitter Click here for reuse options!

  6. By Chris White - A federal judge ruled Thursday that Flint citizens can move forward with lawsuits targeting the Environmental Protection Agency’s handling of the city’s lead contamination problems. The EPA under former President Barack Obama was too slow to intervene in the case, according to U.S. Judge Linda Parker, who ruled that the federal government was not immune from legal action in the case. More than a dozen lawsuits were filed against Michigan and city officials after researchers discovered in 2016 that Flint’s water contained elevated levels of lead in 2014 and 2015. “The impact on the health of the nearly 100,000 residents of the City of Flint remains untold,” Parker wrote in her opinion. “It is anticipated, however, that the injury caused by the lead-contaminated public water supply system will affect the residents for years and likely generations to come.” The EPA knew Flint officials “were not warning Flint’s residents that they were being supplied lead-laced water. Quite to the contrary, the EPA learned that State and local officials were misleading residents to believe that there was nothing wrong with the water supply,” the judge added. Fifteen state and local officials have been criminally indicted in connection with what many in the media have dubbed a water crisis. Four of the officials were charged with involuntary manslaughter. Much of the controversy happened after Flint switched its water source to the Flint River in 2014 without adding anti-corrosive agents to the water. Lead levels in drinking water supplies increased shortly thereafter. Experts have meanwhile are worried the media are getting too far ahead of themselves. The numbers are “being horribly exaggerated,” Hernán Gómez, an associate professor at the University of Michigan, and medical toxicologist at Hurley Medical Center, told The Daily Caller News Foundation in September 2018. Blood lead levels (BLL) are no higher in Flint than in other cities across Michigan, said Gómez, who noted that there is no acceptable level of lead in drinking water even if there is a level that is considered tolerable. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) considers a BLL in children of 5 micrograms per deciliter (µg/dL), and higher to be a “reference level.” The annual percentage of Flint children whose BLLs rose above the reference level increased from 2.2 percent to 3.7 percent, a relatively small uptick given actual lead levels, Gómez noted in a 2018 research paper. These numbers are small relative to previous decades, with the average toddler in the 1970s holding a BLL of 14 µg/dL, a number three times higher than the reference level. Those numbers fell to 0.84 µg/dL by 2014 following a government ban on lead in paint and gasoline in 1971. Children with blood lead levels of 5 µg/dL or higher dropped in Flint from 11.8 percent in 2006 to 3.2 percent in 2016. CDC recommends treatment for people with BLLs at or above 45 µg/dL. The EPA has not yet responded to TheDNCF’s request for comment.
