SENATE PROBE EXPANDED TO ANYONE OF 'RUSSIAN DESCENT OR NATIONALITY' - EMAIL

The US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence probe into allegations of collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia includes anyone believed to be “of Russian descent or nationality,” according to a new report.

April Doss, the senior counsel to the Democrats on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) defined the scope of the investigation as anyone a subject “knows or has reason to believe [is] of Russian nationality or descent,” according to The Young Turks (TYT).

TYT researchers say they’ve obtained the email from Doss, which was copied to the Republican counsel Vanessa Le, and sent on December 19.

Doss is the former head of intelligence law at the National Security Agency (NSA), one of the three intelligence agencies behind the error-riddled ODNI report alleging Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. She was reportedly brought on to the Senate Intelligence Committee by Senator Mark Warner (D-Virginia), one of the leading proponents of Russiagate.

"The SSCI investigation is critically important, and it’ll be a privilege to return to public service in this role," Doss said in April, when she joined the committee staff.

The definition of the investigation’s scope comes in response to a request for clarification by conservative blogger Charles C. Johnson. In July, Johnson received a letter from Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) and Warner requesting a “closed interview” and that he hand over materials “relevant” to the investigation including “all documents, emails, text messages, direct messages, calendar appointments, memoranda, notes or other documents related to any communications with Russian persons.”

This is not the first time vague criteria have been used to define the scope of the investigation into alleged Russian meddling. During a SSCI hearing in November on Russia’s use of social media, Twitter Associate General Counsel Sean Edgett revealed that the company’s methods to detect “Russian-linked” accounts include use of a Russian phone number, mobile carrier, email address, IP address, Cyrillic characters in one’s username, and whether one has “logged in, at any time, from Russia.”

Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-California) has issued a subpoena to David Kramer, an associate of Senator John McCain (R-Arizona), according to the Washington Examiner.

Kramer reportedly traveled to London on behalf of McCain to meet with Christopher Steele, the former British spy and author of the infamous dossier which contains salacious allegations of Trump’s ties to Russia. McCain delivered a copy to then-FBI director James Comey, although Steele had already provided portions of the dossier to the Bureau.

Kramer was interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee on December 19 and said that he knew the Russian sources in the Steele dossier, but refused to reveal them. Revealing those sources would be a determining factor in the conclusion of the investigation into the Trump-Russia affair, according to the Examiner. The subpoena directed Kramer to appear before the committee on January 11.

Does anyone know if  the USA government
still has those concentration camps erected
where they confined Japanese-Americans during WW2 ?

If so, do you think they'll be hiring folks to clean them up for the new 'visitors'?

Is this what the USA government had in mind
when Trump promised to provide new jobs for Americans ?

You do know I am being sarcastic, don't you ?

But here's a serious question for you:
Do you think this hysteria will grow to include anyone  whose nationality
includes countries that were once part of the USSR ?

Or how about those who did not support Trump's UN show of support ?

???

Its like a bad re-run of the McCarthy Era witch-hunts. Only this time, the hysteria is not because Russia is Communist, but because it is conservative with a small 'c' and free market with a small 'f'

US to Analyze Russia's Links to Balkan States

Amid concerns about expanding Russian influence, the US says it intends to compile a report analysing security cooperation between each Western Balkan country and Russia.

The US Defense Secretary with the concurrence of the Secretary of State is to submit a report to Congress looking at security cooperation between Moscow and Western Balkan countries.

“The report will include an assessment of security cooperation between each Western Balkan country - Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo and Macedonia - and the Russian Federation,” a report published by Bosnian news website Puls said.

According to the website of Congress on December 12, the assessment will include a list of “Russian weapons systems and other military hardware and technology valued at $1,000,000 or more that have been provided to or purchased by each Western Balkan country since 2012”.

It will also include a description of the participation of each Western Balkan country’s security forces in training or exercises with Russia since 2012 and description of any security cooperation agreements each Western Balkan country has entered into with Russia.

It is added that US will analyze also intelligence cooperation between each Western Balkan country and Russia.
The overall aim is for the US to gain “an assessment of how security cooperation between each Western Balkan country and the Russian Federation affects the security interests of the United States, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the Western Balkan country, and each NATO member state that borders the Western Balkan country,” the document reads.
The report should include the same assessment of security cooperation between each Western Balkan country and the United States, as well as an assessment of security cooperation between each Western Balkan country and NATO.
Western countries, including the US, are increasingly concerned about a perceived rise in Russian influence in the Balkans and Central Europe.
In November, the Washington-based think tank the Atlantic Council called for a permanent American military presence in the Balkans to stabilize southeastern Europe amid what it sees as increased Russian efforts to exert political influence across the region.
Republican Senator John McCain in April, following a tour of the Balkans, complained of an American "vacuum", which he said Russia was eager to fill, and called for more high-level US visits to the region.
