#DanchenkoTrial jury gets case at 1:10 p.m. After a lunch break, they will begin deliberations. About 42 people in audience, including Danchenko's wife and two daughters, spend then afternoon milling about waiting for verdict. #CrossfireHurricane
Been difficult trial to cover with electronics banned not just in courtroom but entire courthouse. The Albert V. Bryan Courthouse is a void: Once you're in, nothing comes out with breaks just long enough to accomplish nothing or after daily adjournment.
That is why, as some observers note, daily news articles of proceedings aren't popping up until the evenings, nights. All these reporters with pens, pads transcribing 20, 30, 40 pages of notes. Been a big bad bear of a trial to cover. More to come ... after I transcribe notes.

So, what is the jury in that Jury Room within the US District Courthouse in Washington DC looking at while it ponders a verdict? Exhibits.
And you can see them too.

Page's 5-Oct-2016 meeting with Myers still seems significant, and underexplored.
Oh, if it could be proven that Steele had advanced knowledge of Myers's upcoming article for the Times... Image

Opinion💭by @SharylAttkisson

A new order by the #FISA Court sets forth and reviews specific changes in the wake of gov't #Wiretapping abuses. (Thread👇)…
The most noteworthy item bars the @FBI and @TheJusticeDept officials who were involved in the controversial #Wiretaps from “drafting, verifying, reviewing, or submitting” new #FISA applications while their actions are under review.
The @JusticeOIG flagged #FISAabuse in the wiretapping of @CarterWPage. The #FISA Court and #DOJ have determined that at least 2 of the 4 wiretaps against Page were improper and are invalid.

RECHTE GEWALT AM #ESSEN'ER Hbf! WAZ / NRZ berichten, dass gestern ein Mann mit einem Messer angegriffen wurde, weil er einen Migrationshintergrund hat. Bereits in der Nacht von Dienstag auf Mittwoch gab es am Hbf einen Nazi-Angriff auf Aktive von uns. Eine Person wurde verletzt.
Eine Gruppe unserer Aktiven traf sich am Dienstag nach unserem Plenum in einer Kneipe in der Nähe des Rheinischen Platzes und fuhr geschlossen im Nachtexpress zum Hbf. Bereits im Bus wurden wir von zwei offensichtlich politisch rechts orientierten Personen beleidigt & angepöbelt.
Die beiden (1 Person männlich mit Glatze, 1 Person weiblich) stiegen zunächst an der Haltestelle Rathaus aus, überlegten es sich aber anders & stiegen wütend wieder in den Bus ein und fuhren weiter bis zur Endhaltestelle am Hbf. Gegen 01:20 Uhr wurden wir dann angegriffen.

Year in Review📅20 Notable Spygate Developments of 2019

by @IvanPentchoukov (Thread👇)…
In the saga of “#Spygate,” 2019 has shaped up to be the year the tables turned.

“There is such a range of conduct here that is inexplicable… Our final recommendation was to refer the entire chain of command,” #IGHorowitz said. (Thread👇)

#IGHorowitz’s findings were so significant that he recommended the @FBI’s “entire chain of command” outlined in his report to the #DOJ for “consideration of how to assess and address their performance failures.”…

The focus of the #IGReport was #FISAabuse the IG identified “at least 17 significant errors or omissions” in the #FISA warrant used to spy on @CarterWPage.

Although many media organizations are trying to focus on the IG’s finding that the @FBI was within its rights in opening the initial counterintelligence investigation, it should be noted that this was not the focus of the IG’s investigation.
However, Horowitz did note that he had material concerns about the @FBI’s legal ability to open an investigation into the campaign of a presidential candidate:

The #IGReport highlighted several different areas of misconduct and identified a number of errors.

Unsere Aktiven haben gestern Informationsflyer über die sogenannten #SteelerJungs an Besucher:innen des #Steele'r Weihnachtsmarkt verteilt.

News Analysis 🔎 The revelation of the alleged extraction of a #Russian @CIA #Spy has raised a number of questions, including how the #CIA used the information it received—and the quality of that information.

(Thread 👇) By Jeff Carlson @themarketswork…

#RobertMueller will be testifying before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 17.

Here are some crucial questions that should be asked when he testifies (Thread 👇). | Article by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork…
1) Did #AttorneyGeneral Barr in any way misrepresent your 448-page report?

#Mueller failed to identify the grand jury info in the #MuellerReport. Barr noted that “it immediately meant that you know it was going to be a period of weeks before we could get the report out.”
2) Who actually wrote Volume I and Volume II of the #MuellerReport?

At this point, it isn’t known with certainty if #Mueller had any hand in writing the report directly, or if he simply served in an oversight capacity.
