You said you’d never compromise With the mystery tramp, but now you realize
He’s not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes And ask him do you want to make a deal? How does it feel ? How does it feel ? To be on your own With no direction home A complete unknown Just like a rolling stone…

Go deeper: The “Hapsburg group” targeted by Mueller investigation
A group of former senior European politicians who lobbied U.S. politicians as part of Paul Manafort’s unregistered foreign lobbying in the U.S. were identified by name this week in new filings from the Mueller investigation.
Why it matters: Manafort and his defense lawyers have said that the lobbying campaign was focused on just Europe, but some of the documents show members of the “Hapsburg group” attempted to influencethe image of Ukraine’s president in the U.S. and that Manafort organized group members’ visits to the U.S. to do so.
The Hapsburg group: Former Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi, former Austrian Chancellor Alfred Gusenbauer, former Spanish NATO head Javier Solana, Belgian Judge Jean-Paul Moerman, head of the German Federal Chancellory Bodo Hombach, according to ABC.
Be smart: Manafort has been accused of attempting to tamper with witness testimony along with a Russian aide, Konstantin Kliminck, through text messages. Some of the contents of the messages are revealed in the new filings, which show apparent efforts to convince people who worked with the Hapsburg group that the efforts focused on just the EU.
The big picture: Manafort is facing a trial this fall on charges that he violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act after failing to register with the Department of Justice.
Some of what happened:
The goal, per one of Manafort’s memos: “The strategy for the first quarter of 2013 was to heavily engage with the UGS [sic] and US Congress, using a strategy I built called ‘Engage Ukraine’ which focused the dialogue on positive key issues, and away from” political rival Yulia Tymoshenko, who was imprisoned in 2011.
The intrigue: The names were revealed in a memo filed by the clerk un-redacted on Wednesday, but the memo was later re-filed in redacted form with those names hidden, per ABC. The un-redacted file was submitted with their names revealed inadvertently, according to CBS News.
One key quote: Mueller’s team called Manafort’s involvement in the lobbying “brazen efforts at corrupt persuasion.”

|Sessions warns IG report on Clinton email case could lead to more firings|
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, on the eve of the release of a long-awaited watchdog report on the Hillary Clinton email case, pointedly warned that the findings could lead to more firings.
The Justice Department inspector general report reviewing the FBI and DOJ’s handling of that case is slated to drop Thursday.
In an exclusive interview with The Hill’s new web show “Rising” on Wednesday, Sessions said the option of “termination” is on the table for those accused of serious wrongdoing.

“If anyone else shows up in this report to have done something that requires termination we will do so,” Sessions told The Hill.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been investigating whether decisions in the Clinton email probe were based on “improper considerations” for over a year. (AP)
Among the officials expected to come under scrutiny in the report are former FBI Director James Comey, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, and FBI official Peter Strzok.
Former FBI Director James Comey was fired in May 2017 following a recommendation to President Trump by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. (ABC)
Comey was fired in May 2017, upon recommendation by current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. They cited his handling of the Clinton case, though President Trump later indicated the Russia probe was also a factor. Trump has continued to decry that investigation as a “witch hunt” and is likely to seize on the IG findings to further question the FBI’s integrity. At the same time, some of the IG findings may hit the bureau for actions seen as harmful to Clinton.
Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in March after the inspector general’s report revealed that he made an unauthorized leak to the media, and later lied about it to Comey and federal investigators. (AP)
In this report, though, Horowitz has investigated whether McCabe should have recused himself from the Clinton email investigation due to this family’s ties to the Democratic Party. He did not decide to do so until a week before the election. McCabe could also come under scrutiny over the timeline of his knowledge of additional Clinton-tied emails found on disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop. McCabe and others knew that the emails were found as early as September 2016, but the FBI did not work to obtain a warrant to review them until October.

|Inspector general’s new report on FBI, Comey, Clinton and 2016, explained|
A hotly anticipated inspector general report about then-FBI Director James Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation is finally complete. It’s set to be released to Congress Thursday afternoon — and is guaranteed to become a lightning rod in President Trump’s clashes with his own Justice Department.
Michael Horowitz, the inspector general writing the report, is an Obama appointee, and when he first announced he was reviewing into the DOJ and FBI’s actions all the way back in January 2017, many Clinton supporters eagerly hoped he would take Comey to task for actions that they felt inappropriately affected the presidential election.
But we now live in a world where former FBI Director James Comey is a prominent critic of Trump and an important witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether the president obstructed justice.
Even though Horowitz’s report isn’t about the Russia investigation at all, it will be released in a political context dominated by both Mueller’s probe and Trump’s attacks on his Justice Department. Indeed, Trump has signaled that he’s eagerly anticipating the IG report, since it‘s expected to criticize Comey, and he is trying to undermine Comey’s credibility.
And yet it’s entirely possible that the IG’s criticisms of Comey and other Justice Department officials will be well-founded. Commentators on all sides of the political spectrum had — and still have — reasonable complaints about Comey’s unusual choices during the 2016 campaign.
Horowitz has spent six years in the IG job, has a good reputation, and is by all appearances nonpartisan. Furthermore, the inspector general operates with a measure of independence from government higher-ups. Now he’s about to walk into the most dangerous political maelstrom he’s faced yet. But to understand the new report, you have to first understand the inspector general role — and Horowitz himself.
What is an inspector general?
Often called the “watchdogs” for the federal government, an inspector general is supposed to investigate allegations of misconduct within his or her particular agency. Each major Cabinet department has one, and so do various other federal offices and agencies — there are 73 inspectors general (or IGs) in total. (This helpful CRS report lists them all.)
Who is Michael Horowitz?
By now, Trump has cleared out most of the Justice Department’s Obama-era leadership — but Inspector General Michael Horowitz remains.
What is this IG report about?
On January 12, 2017 — after Trump had won the election but before his inauguration — Horowitz announced that he was opening “a review of allegations regarding certain actions” by the Justice Department and FBI “in advance of the 2016 election.”
What is this IG report expected to find?
Many believe, and advance leaks suggest, that Horowitz will criticize several of Comey’s decisions in the Clinton email case. ABC News even reported that, per one source, a draft of the report deemed Comey “insubordinate.”
What does all this mean for the Russia investigation?
Horowitz’s report may well be quite reasonable in what it concludes. But inevitably, and almost regardless of the report’s specifics, President Trump will try to exploit it to try and discredit the Russia investigation (even though, again, this IG report is not actually about the Russia investigation).

After the scourge of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico, the Federal Attorney’s Office and the Department of Justice of Puerto Rico, along with several federal and state agencies and the private company created the Elderly Task Force to provide assistance to the elderly population in nursing homes, the Federal Prosecutor’s Office reported in written statements.
In those moments of great need they were provided with water, food, diapers for adults, towels, personal hygiene and first aid articles, nutritious drinks, among other necessities to 16,330 people in 839 homes.
