McClatchy via Sacramento Bee ^ | January 18th, 2017 | By Peter Stone and Greg Gordon

The FBI and five other law enforcement and intelligence agencies have collaborated for months in an investigation into Russian attempts to influence the November election, including whether money from the Kremlin covertly aided President-elect Donald Trump, two people familiar with the matter said.

The agencies involved in the inquiry are the FBI, the CIA, the National Security Agency, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and representatives of the director of national intelligence, the sources said.

Investigators are examining how money may have moved from the Kremlin to covertly help Trump win, the two sources said. One of the allegations involves whether a system for routinely paying thousands of Russian-American pensioners may have been used to pay some email hackers in the United Sta…

Trump Accuser Summer Zervos Files Defamation Suit Against President-Elect

Trump Accuser Summer Zervos Files Defamation Suit Against President-Elect

NBC News ^ | January 17, 2017 | Daniella Silva

A woman who previously accused Donald Trump of unwanted sexual advances has filed a defamation lawsuit against the president elect — just three days before Trump's presidential inauguration.

Summer Zervos, a former contestant on the "The Apprentice," said in a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred in Los Angeles on Tuesday that she filed the lawsuit over allegedly false statements Trump made in response to her accusation.

The suit, filed Tuesday morning, claims Trump knew his statements about Zervos and his other accusers would subject them to "threats of violence, economic harm and reputational damage."

Allred said Zervos would be willing to dismiss the lawsuit without any monetary damages if Trump agreed to retract his comments about her and admit that the accusations against him were in fact true.

But coming on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday weekend, it also reignited the passions around Trump’s difficult history with African Americans, the group of voters from whom he might be most alienated as he prepares to move into the White House this week.

In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Friday, Lewis said he did not regard Trump to be “a legitimate president” because of allegations that high-level Russian operatives interfered in the election on Trump’s behalf. Trump lobbed back with a tweet in the early hours of Saturday morning that disparaged both the congressman and his district, which includes …

Trump Criticizing John Lewis Is Racist - Dishonest Press Strikes Again

Representative John Lewis gave an interview with Chuck Todd of NBC News wherein he said that Donald Trump is not a legitimate President:

<B>"I don't see this President-elect as a legitimate president," Lewis, a Georgia Democrat, told NBC News' Chuck Todd in a clip released Friday. "I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton."

(Quote per CNN)

The media, which is overwhelmingly anti-Trump, jumped on this immediately.  All the news outlets were blasting out a story on this.  The cable news networks were glad to bring to the table yesterday, even convening panels to discuss it.  The media was again discussing it this this morning.

The Democrats have been trying to delegitimize Trump since the moment he unexpectedly (to them anyway) beat Hillary Clinton - the woman they dreamed of coronating.  They protested in the streets, then they tried recounts, they blame(d) the electoral …
