Spain Sent America Its Best in José Andrés. Now Donald Trump’s Suing Him.

Our prejudice-spewing president-elect says he’s just stunned that a Spanish restaurateur and new American citizen wouldn’t want to do business with him.

Michael Daly

"On Nov. 19, 2014, one year and five days after he became a citizen, Andrés signed a lease for his latest restaurant, this in Donald Trump’s latest hotel, in Washington. D.C. Everything proceeded much as it had at Andrés’ other ventures until June 16, 2015, when Trump formally declared his candidacy for president.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump said in his speech. “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists.”

Conway to CNN's Cuomo: Trump is not sheltering Russia 'and don’t you say that again'

By Louis Nelson
Kellyanne Conway, the incoming counselor to President-elect Donald Trump, took exception Friday morning to the assertion of CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that her boss is “sheltering Russia” by refusing to concede that the Kremlin was behind election-year cyberattacks against U.S. political targets.
“He’s not sheltering Russia, and don’t you say that again. He’s not sheltering Russia,” Conway shot back. “What the heck has the current president done vis-a-vis Russia for the last eight years to make you proud? Name it. Tell me.”

Who is performing at Donald Trump's inauguration and who isn't?

Who Cares
Washington (CNN)President-elect Donald Trump has for decades hobnobbed with famous faces -- A-list models, actors and musicians.
But after a divisive election season and a campaign rife with rhetoric against Muslims and immigrants, Trump has not attracted a wealth of star power to his Inaugural Ceremony.
Plans are far from settled, but as the days until the inauguration tick down, Trump's swearing-in ceremony won't include performances from the big name acts like Beyoncé and Yo-Yo Ma who took the stage for President Barack Obama.
And for the record, Trump and his team have said they are fine with that.
Boris Epshteyn, director of communications for the Inaugural Committee, dismissed the absence of major musicians in an interview on CNN in December.
"This is not Woodstock," Epshteyn said. "It's not summer jam. It's not a concert."

Declassified Intelligence Community Assessment of Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent U.S. Elections

ODNI Statement on Declassified Intelligence Community Assessment of Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent U.S. Elections

January 6, 2017
On December 9, 2016, President Barack Obama directed the Intelligence Community to conduct a full review and produce a comprehensive intelligence report assessing Russian activities and intentions in recent U.S. elections.  We have completed this report and briefed President Obama as well as President-elect Trump and Congressional leadership.  We declassified a version of this report for the public, consistent with our commitment to transparency while still protecting classified sources and methods. 
The Intelligence Community did not make an assessment of the impact that Russian activities had on the outcome of the 2016 election, and DHS assesses that the types of systems the Russian actors targeted or compromised were not involved in vote tallying. 
This declassified version of the report is being released to the public and can be accessed via IC on the Record.
