Black Attorney Brittany K. Barnett Says She Is Responsible For The Release Of 17 Inmates Not Kim Kardashian

The past few days stories have been circulating in the media that Kim Kardashian West has helped free 17 inmates in 90 days.

Kim Kardashian West is staying true to her pledge to fight for prison reform.

CNN has learned that the E! star has been quietly working behind the scenes over the past three months to help commute the life sentences of 17 first-time nonviolent drug offenders.
Brittany K. Barnett, Kardashian West's personal attorney and co-founder of the Buried Alive Project, and MiAngel Cody, lead counsel of the The Decarceration Collective, told CNN that Kardashian West has been instrumental in the release of these inmates.
"Kim has been funding this project and (has been) a very important supporter of our 90 Days of Freedom campaign as part of the First Step Act, which President Trump signed into law last year," Cody said. "We've been going around the country in courtrooms and asking judges to release these inmates."
Barnett added that without Kardashian West footing the bill, this would not have been possible. "(Kim) has provided financial support to cover legal fees so that we can travel the country. Our relationships with our clients don't end when they are freed. (Kim) is truly dedicated to the issue. I work personally with her, we are really grateful."
But she's not just paying legal fees.
"When people get out of prison, they might be incarcerated hundreds of miles from their families and they might need help getting home. Really important, critical things that people might not realize -- and those are things Kim is helping with as well," Cody added.

Attorney and criminal justice advocate Brittany K. Barnett has now come forward and made a statement on her Facebook Page about Kim's role in freeing the 17 people.

According to Brittany K. Barnett, Kim linked arms with us to support us when foundations turned us down. We and our clients and their families have a lot of love for her and are deeply grateful for her. In 90 days TWO black women lawyers freed SEVENTEEN people from LIFE W/O PAROLE sentences - the second most severe penalty permitted by law in America. Only two of us. Prosecutors opposed nearly every single case we had. We litigated our asses off in federal courts across the country. We won DOWNWARD DEPARTURES in most of our cases - due to good lawyering. People set to DIE in prison - are now FREE. Our clients weren’t even on this selective list the Sentencing Commission sent out or on federal defenders radars. In fact we have copies of letters federal defenders sent some of our clients telling them they weren’t even eligible for relief under First Step Act - but we got them free. Our work in 90 days is historic. We picked some up from prison. We gave re-entry stipends. We continue to support them upon release.

Brittany K. Barnett Facebook statement

"The first and last time I will speak on it. Seriously, because the negativity from today is misdemeanor shit and we still have lives to save. MiAngel Cody and I have BEEN doing this work for FREE. Ask any of our dozens of clients who are now free living their best lives. Both of us left six figure salary jobs and wiped out our own savings accounts to fund our work. We attempted to get grants from these large foundations shelling out MILLIONS of dollars to other organizations but would not look our way because they so-called don’t fund “direct services”. Our hands were full picking locks to human cages, we didn’t have time to participate in glorified begging from the nonprofit industrial complex only to be turned down."

She went on to say, Educate yourself on the real before coming to me with the bullshit. I may seem quiet but I promise I’m not the one. This criminal justice reform space is the messiest, pettiest, most divisive and cliquish shit I’ve ever seen in my entire life - with human lives at stake. The drama is mind blowing. I’ve never seen anything like what goes on in this space and I want no parts of the drama. This is why my sis and I stay in our corner and do the work - and why we will continue to do so. Both of us have had a parent in prison. This work is real to us.

We are ELATED 17 people will not die in prison. We are ELATED 17 families are restored. Instead of negativity about Kim, why don’t y’all reach out and see if the 17 people we helped free need anything. Welcome them home. Give them jobs. Send a care package. Amplify their voices without the sharecropping.

Kim has always been very clear in her role. It’s the media that spins it around - not Kim. We do not care how the media is portraying it - that’s what the media does. Who cares. We need Kim’s support and the support of anyone else who wants to join this fight. We love that she is using her platform to raise awareness. We not trying to be famous, we trying to get our people free. Period.

Oxford Professor: Aliens are breeding with humans on Earth

Aliens are interbreeding with humans to create a new hybrid species that will save our planet

Dr  Young-hae Chi Professor at Oxford Oriental Institute.
Dr Young-hae Chi Professor at Oxford Oriental Institute.

Dr. Young-hae Chi a respected Oxford University professor believes aliens are already on Earth interbreeding with humans creating a hybrid race.

Young-hae Chi, who is an instructor in Korean at Oxford's Oriental Institute, said the primary aim of the aliens was to ensure their own survival, but in doing so could protect the human race.

He first made the claims in a lecture in 2012 when he cited an “abduction researcher” from the US who believes the hybrids are already walking among us, the Oxford Student newspaper reported.

Dr Young-hae Chi believes there is a strong correlation between climate change and alien abductions. He claimed the aliens are breeding with humans to produce a new hybrid species capable of solving climate change.

He believes the main objective of this new species is to save the human race from the threat of global warming.

He said the insect-like creatures are likely to be leaders and give instructions to the other types.

In his book, he described four different types of aliens - small, tall and bold, scaly with snake eyes, and insect-like.

According to Dr. Young-hae Chi, the visitors are hardly altruists — they are meddling in our affairs because they share a “comprehensive biosphere” with humans,

“They come not for the sake of us, but for the sake of them, their survival, but their survival is actually our survival as well — the survival of the entire biosphere,” explained Chi, who has penned a new book in Korean on the topic called “Alien Visitations and the End of Humanity.”

In his new book, the professor explains how aliens thrive in their own bio-system we cannot see as we are limited by the functionality of our organs.

“I don’t think they are from far away, they are just next to us, we can’t see them,” he said, reasoning that human perception is limited by our organs. It’s unclear if a human would even realize if he or she encountered one.

Chi has three theories: Either they find human DNA valuable for preserving their species; they want to create a species that can survive future climate calamities; or they are trying to produce an intelligent future leader.

Dr Chi said it was “not only scientists and theologians, but also non-human species who appear to be greatly concerned about the survivability of the human species”.

“It may be more or less assumed that the hybrid project is a response to this impending demise of human civilisation,” he concludes.

According to Dr, Chi, despite their primitive appearances, the aliens are highly intelligent — as, too, are their half-human offspring — and therefore the only creatures smart enough to tackle planetary problems such as climate change and nuclear disaster.

Chi said he’s searching everywhere to find support for his theory and he still needs “more evidence to support my view.”

Americans are amongst the most Stressed in the world

55% of Americans who experienced stress was one of the highest rates out of the 143 countries studied

STRESSED ANGRY

According to the Gallup Poll, Americans were stressed, angry and worried last year than they have been at most points during the past decade. The majority of Americans (55%) in 2018 said they had experienced stress during a lot of the previous day,nearly half (45%) said they felt worried a lot and more than one in five (22%) said they felt anger a lot.

Additionally, Gallup's latest annual update on the world's emotional state shows Americans were more likely to be stressed and worried than much of the world. In fact, the 55% of Americans who experienced stress was one of the highest rates out of the 143 countries studied and it beat the global average (35%) by a full 20 percentage points. The U.S. even ties statistically with Greece, which has led the world on this measure every year since 2012.

Gallup Poll stressed 3

The Poll also suggested 22% who were angry was the same as the global average. Americans, as a whole, were half as likely to be angry as the populations of the Palestinian Territories (43%), Iran (43%), Iraq (44%), and Armenia (45%).

Younger Americans between the ages of 15 and 49 are among the most stressed, worried and angry in the U.S. Roughly two in three of those younger than 50 said they experienced stress a lot, about half said they felt worried a lot and at least one in four or more felt anger a lot.

The poorest Americans with the lowest income were the most stressed. Nearly seven in 10 Americans in the poorest 20% of the population said they experienced stress the previous day, compared with less than half (48%) of Americans in the richest 20%. Similarly, 56% of Americans in the poorest group said they worried a lot, compared with 41% in the richest group.

Even though Gallup indicates they do not ask about political affiliation in its World Poll, they suggested that  there was a strong correlation between stress, worry and disapproval of the job that President Donald Trump is doing. Those who disapprove of Trump's job performance are significantly more likely to experience each of these negative emotions than those who do.

Butts-out! Spanish firemen protest budget cuts

Spanish firemen strip naked to protest spending cuts
Spanish firemen strip naked to protest spending cuts

Taking a page from the Yellow Vest Movement ,firemen from the northern town of Mieres in Spain stripped naked wearing except yellow hard hats to protest budget cuts.

According to EXPATICA SPAIN NEWS,the firefighters emerged one by one from their fire station wearing just their helmets and boots and lined up side by side against a wall with their backs to the assembled press.

“With so many cuts we have been left naked,” declared a banner on the wall above them.

“Eight firefighters who show their asses are worth more than a protest through the streets against the cuts,” said Javier Piedra, 41, one of the 16 members of the Mieres fire brigade.

Spain’s two main labour unions, the UGT and the CCOO, have planned demonstrations by public sector workers in 80 cities and towns later Thursday against the austerity measures.

According to the report, numerous firefighters and police officers have turned out at smaller protests which have taken place daily since the government announced the latest measures on July 11.

“We are protesting because they are reducing our salary and now they are getting rid of the Christmas bonus.”

Firefighters in Mieres earn an average of 1,500-1,550 euros ($1,840-1,900) a month, said Piedra.

“Without taking into account the end of the Christmas bonus, our salary has declined by around 200 euros since the first cuts came into force in June 2010,” he said.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s conservative government aims to save 65 billion euros with its latest austerity measures in order to lower Spain’s public deficit.

IMF approves $4.2bn loan for Ecuador days before Julian Assange was expelled from the embassy

Source: AFP

WASHINGTON - The International Monetary Fund on Monday approved a $4.2-billion, three-year loan for Ecuador, part of a broader aid package to help support the government's economic reform program.

The Washington-based lender agreed to the terms of the financing late last month, and the final approval of the IMF board on Monday releases the first installment of $652-million.

“The Ecuadorian authorities are implementing a comprehensive reform program aimed at modernizing the economy and paving the way for strong, sustained and equitable growth,” IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said in the statement.

Ecuador will be able to draw on the funds for three years. The loans have an interest rate of 3 percent and a maturity of 10 years, with a four-year grace period. In a statement, Finance Minister Richard Martinez called those terms “unbeatable.”

“We’ve ended the asylum of this spoiled brat,” President Lenin Moreno of Ecuador said on Thursday, explaining his decision to withdraw protection of Assange. “From now on we’ll be more careful in giving asylum to people who are really worth it, and not miserable hackers whose only goal is to destabilise governments.”

Lenin accused Julian Assange and Wikileaks of leaking personal information of himself and his family

Ex-Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa, who granted Julian Assange asylum in 2012, told FRANCE 24 that while they had problems with Assange“ that’s no excuse for throwing him to the lions.”

The former president Rafael Correa claim, current president Lenin Moreno offered up Julian Assange in order to get the loan form the IMF.

He argued that one week after taking office, Moreno had a meeting with Paul Manafort, the former campaign chief of Donald Trump. He claims that during this meeting Morena offered Julian Assange to the United States in exchange for financial support from the United States. He went on the say that Mike Spence visited Ecuador and Lenin Moreno again, offered up Assange in order to get financial support from the United States.

Nevertheless, he claims the final factor why Assange was expelled is because Wikileaks published a very huge scandal. The scandal contains documents of secret accounts, an offshore account of the Morena’s family in Panama. He added that Morena is corrupt and the leak documents proved that.

On 26 March, WikiLeaks’ Twitter account announced that President Moreno is being investigated by Ecuador’s Congress for corruption, sparked by the INA Papers leak. The same tweet referenced President Moreno’s attempt to surrender Assange in exchange for US debt relief, a fact that had been reported by The New York Times.

Afro-Mexicans Want To Be Fully Recognize By Mexico.

According to recent DNA studies, although the average Mexican has a small amount of DNA dating back to Black African slave ancestors who had mixed into the predominant Mexican mestizo (mixed Spanish and Amerindian) genepool, averaging to about 5% Sub-Saharan African DNA, Afro-Mexican refers specifically to those Mexicans who, conversely, are predominantly of African ancestry.

According to Minority Rights Group International  ,Afro-Mexican still, despite documentation on the African roots of many aspects of Mexican culture and Yanga’s official recognition as a national hero, Afro-Mexicans and their contributions largely remain invisible. As in Argentina, African descendants in Mexico are not conceived of or included in the contemporary nation or politics. As Afro-Mexicans increasingly migrate from the Costa Chica, where they are highly concentrated, to other parts of Mexico, they are often mistaken for immigrants from Belize or Cuba. In 2005, the Mexican government commissioned the first ever national survey on discrimination in Mexico, which included questions on discrimination against eight different groups. This study failed to mention the existence of or discrimination against Afro-Mexicans. Similarly, where government initiatives have acknowledged the African influence in the country, it has been through a historical lens, which has made invisible the contemporary situation of people of African descent.

Most Afro-Mexicans still live in poverty, often in isolated rural communities with negligible sanitation, health or education services. The lack of roads in Costa Chica continues to hinder much of the economic activity of the region. This lack of infrastructure paired with the declaring of the Pinotepa region a national reserve, and thus banning logging, has made it difficult for Afro-Mexicans to sustain themselves economically or even build their own shelter. Today, their primary sources of income are fishing, agriculture (mostly for their own consumption) and domestic work. Because the majority of Afro-Mexicans live in the poorest regions of Mexico, they lack adequate primary and secondary education and are largely absent from institutions of higher education.

The African presence in Mexico is often denied or trivialized, and where popular culture depicts black people they tend to be caricatured and ridiculed. Mexico produces a large percentage of Spanish-language television programmes in the Americas, which continue to present limiting and one-dimensional stereotypical and sexualized images of black women. In 2005, the release of the commemorative stamps of the central character of the 1940s Mexican comic book Memín Pinguín incited criticism by various civil rights groups in the US. The character is a stereotypical black image with exaggerated ‘black’ facial features resembling some of racist sambo images once popular in the US.

Somali-British: Magic Magid – The Lord Mayor of Sheffield, England

See Cited source in links:

Magid Magid , also known as Magid Mah, is a British-Somali activist and politician who has served as the Lord Mayor of Sheffield since May 2018.

His appointment has attracted significant media attention, as he is the first Somali, the youngest-ever, and the first Green Party councillor to hold the role.

Born in Somaliland, Magid came as a child refugee to Britain in 1994. He grew up in Burngreave, Sheffield, and studied aquatic zoology at the University of Hull where he was elected president of Hull University Union. He has worked in digital marketing and was elected as a Green Party councillor on Sheffield City Council in 2016. From 2017 to 2018, he served as Deputy Lord Mayor, and during this period he participated in the third series of the reality show Hunted. In 2018, he was chosen by the council to serve the one-year term as Lord Mayor Magid.

He was born 26 June 1989 in Burao, the capital city of the Togdheer region of Somaliland.

The Civil War in Somali forced his mother, and five siblings to flee Somaliland in 1994.

They spent six months in a refugee camp in Ethiopia before being admitted to Britain. The family moved to the Burngreave area of Sheffield. Growing up, Magid has said that he remembers "just being happy," but notes difficulties in his childhood. He has said that life was difficult for his family as he moved to Britain without being able to speak English, and they had to learn this new language as well as adapt to a new way of life.

His mother worked as a cleaner to support her children through school. Burngreave, however, was one of Sheffield's most economically-deprived areas during the early 2000s. Magid has said that he didn't "have much in the way of a male role model," continuing that "it is easy to become a product of your own environment, and a lot of my environment was negative. So I was a bit of a pain in the arse for a while."

Lord Mayor

Magid attended Fir Vale School in Sheffield, and studied A Levels in Psychology, Law, and Philosophy, at Longley Park Sixth Form College. He cites an important part of his development being his interest in music, and at school he used to create and sell his own mixtapes on CDs.

He finished sixth form in 2008 and went on to raise his own funds, working 12-hour shifts for 9 weeks, in order to go on a gap year that he spent travelling. He visited the Swiss Alps, where he went on a mountaineering course, as well as Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, and Germany, where he ran the Berlin marathon. By 17, Magid had developed an interest in mountaineering as a hobby, and in September 2009 went on a trip to Kilimanjaro, enlisted the help of a local guide, and climbed the mountain.

Magid decided that he wanted to go to university, and began a degree in aquatic zoology at the University of Hull after his gap year. He founded the university's Mixed Martial Arts club, where he gained the nickname 'Magic Magid the Submission Magician'. He was elected as president of the students' union, the Hull University Union, where he notes that he was not "politically savvy" but knew that he "cared about certain issues.

Sheffield councillor

Magid joined the Green Party of England and Wales in 2014, despite many of his family and friends being Labour Party supporters. He decided to join the party having been affected by the rise of UKIP as a political force in England. On UKIP, he has said that they were "competent at being evil" and "exploited people's disengagement with politics and their frustration." He worked with the existing Green Party councillors in Broomhill and Sharrow Vale, and was elected as Fundraising Officer of the Sheffield Green Party. He was elected as a Green councillor representing the ward in the 2016 election.

He has said that, regarding his political rise, "There's a lot of luck involved."

As a councillor, Magid has sat on the Safer and Stronger Communities Scrutiny and Policy Committee and on the Senior Officer Employment Committee. Between his election and 1 June 2018, he had attended 90% of all meetings, and given apologies for all of his absences. He has said that his main priorities as a councillor are to establish strong partnerships between the students and residents living in his ward as well as protecting conservation areas in the ward.

Politically, Magid is a republican, stating that he believes hereditary heads of state to be an outdated concept, but that he personally believes the members of the royal family are not objectionable.

He has also stated support for greater devolution, free university education, and an end to private finance initiatives.

Magid ran the Sheffield Half Marathon in April 2017 dressed as a tree to object to the council's felling policies. He ran the London Marathon in 2017 to raise money for St John Ambulance. He was chosen by Sheffield City Council to serve as Deputy Lord Mayor from May 2017 to May 2018.

He was not present for his inauguration ceremony as he was filming the show Hunted. In May 2018, Magid raised money for Sheffield war memorial by leading a static cycling challenge. In October 2017, Magid was shortlisted for the Young Councillor of the Year award as part of the LGiU and CCLA's Councillor Achievement Awards.

In February 2019, Magid announced that he would not be contesting the Sheffield City Council election, 2019 and would therefore be standing down as a councillor.

Lord Mayorship.

Magid was nominated for the role of Lord Mayor of Sheffield by his three fellow Green Party councillors. The post, which is a ceremonial one, means the officeholder must represent the council and the city, speak at a variety of official functions, and undertake a range of ceremonial duties. He was chosen by majority vote by the whole council and sworn-in on 16 May 2018.

His aim has been to end the "archaic" nature of the role, and reflected this in his inauguration ceremony, where the Imperial March from Star Wars, and the Superman theme, were both played. During his speech at the ceremony, he condemned racism and "post-Brexit xenophobia". In his inaugural portrait, Magid squatted on a balustrade wearing green Dr. Martens boots; the image then went viral on Twitter.

Following his appointment, Magid noted the "backlash from right wing media," and some "racist comments," but said the vast majority of feedback to his appointment had been positive.

In October 2018, he appointed Sheffield's first poet laureate in the form of rapper Otis Mensah.

The three charities he will support as Lord Mayor are Flourish, a mental health organisation, Sheffield Women's Counselling and Therapy Services, and the Unity Gym Project. His fundraising aim as Lord Mayor is £100,000, a record aim for a Lord Mayor of Sheffield.

He has also encouraged people to apply to be his 'consort' and accompany him on official duties, as a way to improve engagement. Within a week of his appointment, he appeared on Daily Politics, where he confronted Jacob Rees-Mogg for calling Magid's story "brilliant and refreshing." In a July tweet, Magid described US President Donald Trump as a "wasteman" and stated that he was banning him from the city of Sheffield, though Sheffield City Council stated that he does not have the power to do so.

Breaking News: Lawyer Michael Avenatti arrested on Wire and Bank Fraud..Extorting Nike

New York

Controversial Lawyer Michael Avenatti who represented adult-film star Stormy Daniels against President Donald Trump and who recently announced he will turn over allegedly sex tape featuring R. Kelly Having Sex With Minor is now arrested on fraud charges.

Federal prosecutors in New York on Monday accused Avenatti of operating "an old-fashioned shakedown" by trying to extort between $15 and $25 million from sports apparel giant Nike. This is part of a string of claims against the celebrity lawyer by Prosecutors.

According to prosecutors, Avenatti tried to extort Nike "by threatening to use his ability to garner publicity to inflict substantial financial and reputational harm on the company if his demands were not met."

"As alleged, Michael Avenatti approached Nike last week with a list of financial demands in exchange for covering up allegations of misconduct on behalf of the company," FBI Assistant Director in Charge William Sweeney Jr. said in a statement. "The lofty price tag included a $1.5 million payoff for Avenatti’s client and upwards of tens of millions of dollars for the legal services of his firm – services Nike never requested. This is nothing more than a straightforward case of extortion"

The New York case are extortion, transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort, conspiracy to transmit interstate communications with intent to extort, and conspiracy to commit extortion.

At the news conference Monday, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said Avenatti used illegal tactics and threats in an effort to obtain millions of dollars for himself. He claimed that if Nike did not meet his demands, "the company might die."

"When lawyers use their law licenses as weapons, as a guise to extort payments for themselves, they are no longer acting as attorneys," Berman said. "They are acting as criminals and they will be held responsible for their conduct."

The New York complaint alleged, Avenatti and an unidentified co-conspirator met with attorneys for Nike on March 19th and "threatened to release damaging information" if the company did not agree to make multi-million dollar payments to them, as well as an additional $1.5-million payment to a client Avenatti claimed to represent.

According to TMZ, he allegedly told the attorneys that if his demands were not met, he would "go take ten billion dollars off your client's market cap ... I'm not f---ing around."

The complaint said Avenatti threatened to hold a news conference on the eve of Nike's quarterly earnings call and the start of the NCAA tournament to announce allegations of misconduct by Nike employees.

The co-conspirator was identified as an attorney licensed to practice in the state of California, and was "similarly known for representation of celebrity and public figure clients." Meanwhile, the alleged client was identified as a coach for an amateur athletic union men's basketball program based in California.

Earlier Monday, Avenatti tweeted he would be holding a news conference Tuesday to "disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered. This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball."

After R. Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against four alleged victims, lawyer Michael Avenatti spoke out about the investigation, claiming that he turned over a sex tape to Cook County prosecutors in Illinois allegedly showing the singer engaging in sexual acts with a 14-year-old girl.

The tape, which Avenatti said is over 40 minutes in length, “leaves no question as to whether R. Kelly is guilty of multiple sexual, illegal acts against a 14-year-old girl,” he said.

“The tape was shot in the late ‘90s, approximately 1999, it depicts two separate scenes shot on two separate days within Mr. Kelly’s residence at the time,” Avenatti continued. “The audio on the tape, you can clearly listen to it — it is clear — the video is far superior to the video that was used in connection to the 2008 trial. It is an entirely different video.”

“This VHS video of Mr. Kelly depicts him engaging in multiple sexual assaults of a girl of fourteen years of age. On this tape, Mr. Kelly engages in oral, anal and vaginal sex with the young girl in two separate rooms in his home on two separate days. Mr. Kelly and the young victim are both clearly visible throughout the tape as is an identifying mole on the mid to low back of Mr. Kelly on his left side. Mr. Kelly and the victim can both be heard throughout the tape, with Mr. Kelly repeatedly directing the young girl to perform various sexual acts,” the statement read. “In addition, Mr. Kelly takes great pains to adjust the camera on many occasions to ensure that various acts are recorded with specificity and at a limited distance. Critically, Mr. Kelly and the victim verbally refer to the girl as only being 14 on multiple occasion on the video.”

Mueller: No proof of collusion with Russia or obstruction by Trump

AG Barr says evidence 'not sufficient' to prosecute

After years of continued investigations and allegations, the verdict is in. Special counsel Robert Mueller found no proof that President Donald Trump criminally colluded with Russia and conclude there is no conclusion about whether Trump obstructed justice, Attorney General William Barr told Congress on Sunday. He also announced that he found insufficient evidence to pursue the matter further.

Trump went on Twitter to reiterate what he had been saying all along.

No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT! 

The long-awaited end of the probe came almost two years after Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump" and "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation."

There has been a slew of criminal charges. The charges includes Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn; former campaign chairman Paul Manafort; longtime ex-political adviser Roger Stone; former personal lawyer Michael Cohen; and numerous Russian nationals. There have been a number of guilty pleas and convictions. None, however, has anything to do with Trump or anyone in his campaign conspiring with Russians to help Trump get elected in 2016.

Read the full letter to Congress released on Sunday. William P. Barr Attorney General wrote:

Dear Chairman Graham, Chairman Nadler, Ranking Member Feinstein, and Ranking Member

Collins:

As a supplement to the notification provided on Friday, March 22, 2019, I am writing today

to advise you of the principal conclusions reached by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller and

to inform you about the status of my initial review of the report he has prepared.

"This was an illegal take-down that failed"~President Trump.

The Democrats want the full Report to be released.
