US charges Russian woman for interfering in 2018 midterm election

Saturday 21:49 GMT

At the end of December, the Obama administration expels 35 Russian diplomats and shuts down two Russian intelligence compounds as the Kremlin continues to deny a roll in the summer's cyber attacks.

Prigozhin, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was already indicted in February along with 12 other IRA employees for disinformation campaigns during the 2016 US presidential election. During that time, they pushed out millions of postings on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other platforms in an attempt to stir up animosity between political camps and groups in society.

US charges Russian woman with interfering in 2018 midterms

Saturday 20:00 GMT

The prosecution of Khusyaynova is being handled by the US attorney’s office in Alexandria, Virginia, rather than by Mueller.

Federal prosecutors in Virginia said Khusyaynova’s work was part of a $35m “information warfare” campaign orchestrated by Yevgeniy Prigozhin, an oligarch known as “Putin’s chef” who has been charged for interfering in the 2016 election. As early as July 2017, the Russian operation allegedly worked to spread online messages that Trump was the victim of a “witch-hunt” and that Mueller was a “puppet of the establishment” tied to Democrats whose investigation was “damaging to the country”.

The Midterms Minute: Michael Cohen gets out the vote – for Democrats

Saturday 20:00 GMT

Cohen has offered to campaign against Republicans in the midterms or the 2020 presidential election, but there have been no public takers.

Donald Trump’s ex-lawyer has now so thoroughly turned on his ex-boss that he’s urging Americans to head to the polls to vote against Trump and the Republicans. “Grab your family, grab your friends, grab your neighbors, and get to the poll, because if not, you are going to have another two or another six years of this craziness,” Cohen, who pleaded guilty in August to eight criminal counts, told CNN on Friday.

Pump Prices Hover Around $3 as Midterms Near

Saturday 13:35 GMT

Gregory Daco, chief U.S. economist at Oxford Economics in New York, said pump prices won’t be a major factor in the midterm elections because they’ll be mostly drowned out by low unemployment and a strong U.S. economy.

“What’s eye-opening for drivers right now in the fall is that prices aren’t dropping like they normally do after the high-demand summer season,” said Ms. Casselano. She said that it’s unusual because historically prices have tended to decline at this time of year.

'How to stop an out-of-control president': the Trump films that may swing the midterms

Friday 08:06 GMT

In his convoluted concluding metaphor, his former aide Sebastian Gorka likens Trump to an icebreaker, crashing through terrain frozen over by political correctness, which could re-freeze behind him unless a flotilla of Deplorables helps Trump win the midterms.

Another Oscar winner, Charles “Inside Job” Ferguson, has just completed a four-hour series on Watergate with the resonant subtitle: “How we learned to stop an out-of-control president.”

Newt Gingrich: Republicans’ new rallying cry is ‘Remember Kavanaugh’ and it may lead them to midterm victory

Thursday 16:23 GMT

In airports, on airplanes, in hotels and in restaurants, I have been approached again and again by people who are glad Republicans stood up for now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh and took on the left.

I think three things relating to Justice Kavanaugh have happened to change the dynamic against the Democrats and for the Republicans. First, the sheer viciousness of the smears, lies and character assassination against Kavanaugh galvanized Republicans who had been relatively passive about the election.

Lara Trump said Wednesday on "Fox News @ Night" that she believes female support for President Trump and Republican candidates is not accurately reflected in polls.

Midterm messaging revolved around the economy — until the Kavanaugh hearing

Thursday 13:35 GMT

About 89% of candidates’ posts about Kavanaugh outperformed their accounts’ average engagement rate — compared with only 61% of economic posts.

From late September, when Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford testified before Congress, until last week, she sent out 79 tweets and Facebook posts about the economy, which was about eight times as many as Cramer and other contested Senate candidates. Even in late September and early October, amid the mounting controversy over sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh and Heitkamp’s closely watched vote against him, the North Dakotan continued to focus on the economy more than anything else in her social media messages.

U.S. midterms a mere blip on equity options traders' radar

Friday 20:02 GMT

Less than a month before the U.S. congressional elections, data suggests equity options traders do not view the election as a big catalyst for setting the direction of U.S. stock market in the immediate aftermath of the vote results.

Political control of the U.S. Congress will be up for grabs on November 6 and should Democrats take the U.S. House of Representatives away from Republicans it could hinder President Donald Trump’s political agenda.
