Senators press Kushner over 'incomplete' Trump-Russia evidence

18-Nov-2017

The committee asked for additional documents related to Flynn, detailing a long list of search terms, and rebuffed Kushner's lawyer's arguments that his security clearance is confidential and unavailable because it has been submitted to the FBI for review.

In the letter to Kushner, the senators noted they had asked Kushner to provide documents to, from, or copied to you "relating to" certain individuals of interest to investigators, but Kushner's response said no emails had been found in which those individuals were sent emails, received emails, or were copied on them. "If, as you suggest, Mr. Kushner was unaware of, for example, any attempts at Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, then presumably there would be few communications concerning many of the persons identified in our second request, and the corresponding burden of searching would be small," the senators wrote.

Hastert Scores Victory in One of Two Abuse-Related Lawsuits

Wednesday 00:37 GMT

Disgraced former House Speaker Dennis Hastert scored a victory in Kendall County Circuit Court Monday, as a judge threw out a lawsuit filed by a man who claimed Hastert sexually abused him when he was a child, in approximately 1973 or 74.

“That change, however, only applies to claims that were not already barred by prior law at the time this change was made effective, January 1, 2014,” she added “It was an important and necessary change that unfortunately came too late for victims like Richard Doe.”
