Special counsel’s Russia probe loses top FBI investigator

One of the FBI’s top investigators, tapped by special counsel Robert Mueller just weeks ago to help lead the probe of Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election, has left Mueller’s team, sources tell ABC News.

The recent departure of FBI veteran Peter Strzok is the first known hitch in a secretive probe that by all public accounts is charging full-steam ahead. Just last week, news surfaced that Mueller’s team had executed a search warrant at the Virginia home of Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort. And the week before that ABC News confirmed Mueller is now using a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., to collect documents and other evidence.—More…

Fox News viewers were livid after Dana Perino—long suspected to be someone, like Megyn Kelly, who cares more about the opinions of elites in New York and D.C. than Fox News’ viewers—smeared Breitbart News as a site for Nazis on Monday.

Washington Post pushes unsubstantiated story that Trump’s father attended ‘KKK march’

A Washington Post reporter on Tuesday pushed a story about President Trump’s father being arrested “at a KKK march” in the 1920s, although it seemed to reference a Memorial Day parade, and it’s at best unclear why the elder Trump was detained and discharged by the police.
