    The news is crazy tonight. Mueller is investigating whether or not Trump was trying to obstruct justice by attempting to fire Sessions last summer. Sessions meanwhile is having dinner with Rosenstein. And now this....

    Exclusive: Kushner’s Business Got Loans from Companies After White House Meetings - By me, @katekelly and @benprotess

    Execs from Apollo, the private equity firm, and Citigroup both had W.H. meetings with Jared Kushner.

    Following the meetings, Apollo lent $184 million to Kushner’s family real estate firm. Citigroup put up $325 million, NYT reports.

    Had to turn CNN off today. Was trying to get caught up on the news and the entire panel was talking about Hope Hicks. Normally on CNN they’re pretty harsh to anyone who has left Trump’s Steaming pile of shit he calls an administration, but today poor beautiful Hope got kid glove treatment. It was vomitous.

    It is a fact of life that beautiful people receive unearned favor in life, but it doesn’t sit right with me that this orange micro penis worshipping, dick hopping “model”/White House communications director doesn’t get excoriated the same way the rest of his swamp has on their way out. Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway wouldn’t have gotten treated so favorably on a left leaning news show if they’d been the one resigning due to their haggard/asymmetrical/elderly appearances.

    It’s her coat. That just tells how short and skimpy her outfit is.

    Melania Trump entered US with 'Einstein' visa designated for people with 'extraordinary ability'

    Melania Trump entered the United States in 2001 after receiving a green card visa designated for people with "extraordinary ability," according to a new Washington Post report.

    The wife to President Trump was one of only five people from Slovenia who entered the United States in March of 2001 under the EB-1 program, which has been described as the "Einstein visa." This detail surrounding the first lady's immigration journey comes after Melania's own parents recently faced criticism for potentially relying on an immigration process referred to by some as "chain migration" that their son in law wants to end.

    In the late '90s and earlier 2000's, a then Melania Knauss could be seen gracing runway shows in Europe, billboard cigarette ads and the pages of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit edition. The EB-1 program, which was written into U.S. immigration policy via the Immigration Act of 1990, was built to let in researchers, business executives and others who demonstrated "sustained national and international acclaim."

    According to the Post, over one million green cards were granted in 2001 alone, and only 3,376 were issued to immigration with "extraordinary ability."

    "Mrs. Trump was more than amply qualified and solidly eligible," Michael Wildes, an attorney for Melania Trump and her family said to the Post. "There is no reason to adjudicate her petition publicly when her privacy is so important to her."

    After ordering the end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy -- which will effectively cease to exist as policy on March 5 -- President Trump has tweeted many times about immigration as he and Capitol Hill lawmakers attempt to find middle ground on issues surrounding national security, border wall protection and the status of an estimated 3.6 million "DREAMers" who brought to the U.S. undocumented as children.

    'Surreal' Trump meeting on guns left Republicans reeling, Democrats optimistic

    By Lauren Fox and Ted Barrett, CNN
    Updated 1642 GMT (0042 HKT) March 1, 2018

    (CNN)Nobody knew quite what to think.

    After a wide-ranging, televised meeting Wednesday at the White House, Democrats walked away stunned and with some tepid optimism that something substantial could happen on guns, while Republicans appeared flummoxed.

    After all, President Donald Trump had defied traditional GOP orthodoxy on an issue as essential to the Republican brand as any: guns.

    And unlike earlier meetings where Trump has embraced bipartisanship without any specificity, Trump was explicit about what he wanted Wednesday. On camera, he'd pushed to raise the age at which an individual can purchase a rifle from 18 to 21 even after a weekend lunch with officials from the National Rifle Association, who have publicly opposed the change. Trump called to expand background checks and told the House's Majority Whip Steve Scalise that a concealed carry bill would never pass attached to legislation to incentivize states to enter data into the national background checks database.

    RELATED: NRA directly appealed to Trump against raising age for firearms purchases

    Trump tells senators 'You're afraid of the NRA'

    "I don't know how much clearer he could have been and the whole country can watch it," said Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

    Democrats argued that Trump had power Democratic President Barack Obama never had: trust with the Republican base that he would not infringe on the Second Amendment.

    "With President Trump no one believes he will take their guns away," said West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin.

    But the impact of the meeting at the White House, which stunned some within the President's own party and puzzled aides back on the Hill, was still uncertain.
    "Holy s---," one Democratic Senate aide emailed as they watched the meeting unfolding.

    "I don't know, man," another Democratic Senate aide said. "We'll see what happens, I guess."
    Trump meeting's impact on gun proposals unclear

    Earlier in the day, negotiations to bring gun legislation to the floor of the Senate had broken down and there was no clear path for floor consideration of any bill, regardless of scope. But the meeting at the White House and Trump's obvious and continued push to do something raised questions from aides and lawmakers as to whether the dynamic had changed -- or whether Trump would simply shift away from his positions and enthusiasm for action in the days ahead, as he has multiple times in the past.

    Trump repeatedly upends GOP lawmakers in gun session

    Republicans returned to Capitol Hill still a bit unsettled by what they'd heard. For days, lawmakers in the GOP had a united and concise message: if Congress were to do anything, it would be enforcing school safety and fixing the National Instant Criminal Background Checks system. There was little appetite to do more.

    But Trump wanted something "comprehensive." In the meeting Trump called for Manchin-Toomey, legislation that had expanded background checks on internet and gun show sales, to be the base bill. As lawmakers brainstormed ideas around the table, Trump encouraged many of them to be added to the background check bill.

    Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican from Florida, was skeptical "comprehensive" could work.

    "I think that's ideal if you could do it all at once," Rubio said. "I just don't think it's likely to pass knowing this place."

    Sen. John Cornyn, the Senate's whip who had been seated next to Trump during the meeting described the meeting as "fascinating television" and "surreal."
    "My takeaway is that we like to start with background checks and build from there and see where we can get consensus," Cornyn said. "And to be the most obvious place to start is the Fix NICs bill that has 46 co-sponsors."

    He added that rolling multiple gun bills into one was "easier said than done."

    Many Republicans remarked that they'd seen Trump call for comprehensive, bipartisan legislation in the past in televised White House meetings that never materialized. Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, warned that Trump would need to follow through this time or risk hurting his reputation.

    "If we don't do it this time, then this will get old." Graham said, "If the President has another one of these sessions and he doesn't follow through -- it's going to hurt him. It's going to hurt the Republican Party."

    Graham had been a part of similar on-camera meeting last month, that one dedicated to finding a solution on immigration, another issue on which lawmakers haven't been able to find a deal.

    "I've seen this movie before" Graham added. "If it ends up like immigration he's done himself a lot of harm. If we can actually deliver, he's done himself and the country a lot of good."
    Stronger Republican reaction

    Republicans also offered some strong rebukes to a few of Trump's comments.

    Sen. Dan Sullivan, a Republican from Alaska, warned there were several Republicans with concerns about raising the age individuals could buy rifles from 18 to 21.

    "I'm probably not the only senator in the US Senate who isn't supportive of that. But again, it's not like we're not trying to be constructive but you know I have 16-year-old Alaskans who go out and hunt and they do it seriously. ... We're very, very different from Connecticut and other places," Sullivan said.

    Others were worried that during the meeting that Trump said he wanted individuals who were identified as potentially dangerous to have their guns taken from them before they went to court.

    "Strong leaders don't automatically agree with the last thing that was said to them. We have the Second Amendment and due process of law for a reason," Ben Sasse, a Republican senator from Nebraska, said in a statement. "We're not ditching any Constitutional protections simply because the last person the President talked to today doesn't like them."

    CNN's Phil Mattingly, Sunlen Serfaty and Kristin Wilson contributed to this report.

    NEWS: The bipartisan leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee have privately concluded that the House Intelligence majority leaked Mark Warner's private text messages to FOX NEWS, where they were published last month and used by Donald Trump to falsely attack Sen. Mark Warner.

    Senate Intelligence Leaders Say House G.O.P. Leaked a Senator’s Texts

    WASHINGTON — The Senate Intelligence Committee has concluded that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, led by Devin Nunes, were behind the leak of private text messages between the Senate panel’s top Democrat, Mark Warner, and a Russian-connected lawyer, according to two congressional officials briefed on the matter.

    Senator Richard M. Burr of North Carolina, the committee’s Republican chairman, and Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat, were so perturbed by the leak that they demanded a rare meeting with Speaker Paul D. Ryan last month to inform him of their findings. They used the meeting with Mr. Ryan to raise broader concerns about the direction of the House Intelligence Committee under its chairman, Representative Devin Nunes of California, the officials said.

    To the senators, who are overseeing what is effectively the last bipartisan investigation on Capitol Hill into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, the leak was a serious breach of protocol and a partisan attack by one intelligence committee against the other.

    The text messages were leaked just days after the same House Republicans had taken the extraordinary step of publicly releasing, over the objections of the F.B.I., a widely disputed memorandum based on sensitive government secrets. Taken together, the actions suggested a pattern of partisanship and unilateral action by the once-bipartisan House panel.

    The messages between Mr. Warner and Adam Waldman, a Washington lawyer, show that the senator tried for weeks to arrange a meeting with the former spy, Christopher Steele. The Senate committee has had difficulty making contact with Mr. Steele, whom it views as a key witness. And Mr. Waldman, who knew Mr. Steele, presented himself as a willing partner.

    The Fox News article made prominent mention of work by Mr. Waldman’s Washington lobbying firm on behalf of Oleg V. Deripaska, a Russian aluminum magnate who was once close to Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s indicted former campaign chairman.

    Copies of the messages were originally submitted by Mr. Waldman to the Senate committee. In January, one of Mr. Nunes’s staff members requested that copies be shared with the House committee as well, according to a person familiar with the request who was not authorized to talk about it publicly. Days later, the messages were published by Fox News, the person said. Fox’s report said that it had obtained the documents from a Republican source it did not name.

    The documents published by Fox News appear to back up the senators’ accusation. Though they were marked “CONFIDENTIAL: Produced to USSSCI on a Confidential Basis,” suggesting that they had come from the Senate panel, known as the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, the person familiar with the congressional requests said that the stamp was misleading and that other markings gave away their actual origin.

    Specifically, the copy of the messages shared with the Senate was paginated, and the one submitted to the House — while preserving the reference to the Senate committee — was unpaginated.

    A lawyer for Mr. Waldman independently concluded that the House committee had probably shared the document and sent a letter to Mr. Nunes complaining about the leak, according to a person familiar with the letter.

    16 insane things that happened in Trumpworld in just the last 48 hours

    Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large
    Updated 1401 GMT (2201 HKT) March 1, 2018

    (CNN)Even by President Donald Trump's frenetic standards, the events of the last 48 hours have been insane.

    Major resignations! Infighting! Robert Mueller! Javanka! And much, much more.

    Because no one could keep track of it all, we -- me and the one and only Brenna Williams -- made a list. Here it is:

    1. White House communications director Hope Hicks resigned.
    2. John Kelly and Jared Kushner/Ivanka Trump are fighting.
    3. Special counsel Robert Mueller is looking into Donald Trump's financial maneuvers prior to his announcing for president.
    4. Trump publicly attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Again.
    5. Trump convened a conversation with senators and House members on gun safety in which he pooh-poohed a House-passed bill that grants states reciprocity on conceal and carry and seemed open to a comprehensive gun control measure.
    6. We learned that Kushner has been stripped of his top secret security clearance, hamstringing his ability to oversee his broad portfolio of responsibilities within the White House.
    7. Hicks testified before the House Intelligence Committee in relation to its investigation into Russia's attempted meddling in the 2016 election and acknowledged that she has told white lies in service of Trump.
    8. The Washington Post reported that four foreign countries -- Israel, United Arab Emirates, Mexico and China -- had assessed that Kushner was vulnerable to manipulation due to his complex financial interests.
    9. Longtime Javanka confidant Josh Raffel announced he was leaving the White House.
    10. It emerged that the Department of Housing and Urban Development spent $31,000 to replace furniture in the office of Secretary Ben Carson.
    11. A political appointee at the Interior Department resigned after CNN's K-File found a series of anti-gay and anti-Muslim comments she made via Facebook and Twitter.
    12. Trump announced the hiring of Brad Parscale as his 2020 campaign manager.
    13. Trump sent a flurry of tweets on Mueller's ongoing Russia investigation -- including one that read simply: "WITCH HUNT!"
    14. US Cyber Command chief Adm. Mike Rogers told members of Congress that Trump had not authorized him to disrupt Russian attempts to meddle in future US elections.
    15. Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort pleaded not guilty to an array of (new) bank fraud and money laundering charges brought against him by Mueller.
    16. The White House parted ways with Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a senior adviser to first lady Melania Trump. Wolkoff's event-planning business was paid more than $26 million for its work on Trump's inauguration.

    And brace yourself: that was only through Wednesday.

    It irks me that there is so much chaos and crazy that a) it seems normal and b) no one story gets enough attention. The story that Nunes leaked those texts?! To Fox of course, who happily helped an intelligence agency play politics. An intelligence agency, charged with our national security is caught up in political checkers and leaking?!. WTF. I mean WTF. This is just lost in the daily avalanche of bullshit coming from our government.

    I hope Nunes goes down and hard.
