Barcelona is latest focus of Trump/Russian election interference probe

This Russian hacker was arrested in Spain after having been observed for a long time. Extradition to the U.S. is likely in his future.

As Rachel notes:
THIS NEW REPORTING indicates that the CIA last summer somehow came into possession of information that it found sufficiently alarming that the director did one-on-one briefings with the leadership in Congress, not to tell them about Russia interfering with the election, but to tell them about Russia interfering with the election and the distinct possibility that the Trump campaign was helping Russia do that. So the Trump campaign side of that is something that the FBI would have to handle, not the CIA. And because of that -- because that’s FBI territory -- at that point, the investigation becomes a black box to us in terms of what we know about it, or at least in terms of what the FBI will say about it.

But whether or not they are talking about these things, we can see what they’re doing. And one of the things they have just done is request the arrest of this Russian intelligence-linked, criminal mega hacker who’s now sitting in a jail cell in Barcelona presumably about to be extradited to the United States. And the FBI won’t say beep about it …

As this administration continues to enjoy its first real bout of shallow, good press about their bombing 2,000% of all the planes in Syria, the one potentially existential scandal of this administration really is still moving.

Tonight it’s moving in Barcelona. Tomorrow, who knows?
