Dr. Sean Conley, the physician to President Donald Trump, has reported on Tuesday that the Coronavirus-stricken President has “no symptoms.” This follows President Trump returning to the White House from Walter Reed Medical Center on Monday after his four-day stay at the military hospital.

“This morning the President’s team of physicians met with him in the Residence. He had a restful first night at home, and today he reports no symptoms,” Dr. Conley’s statement reads. “Vital signs and physical exam remain stable, with an ambulatory oxygen saturation level of 95-97%. Overall he continues to do extremely well, I will provide updates as we know more.”

The president and the First Lady both tested positive for the novel Coronavirus late on Thursday, alongside many political figures and staffers. While the exact event where President Trump contracted the virus remains unclear, one of the leading hypotheses posits that it occurred at the event where he announced his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Since many of those who were also infected attended the event, many place this as the “superspreader” event.

When he tweeted on Monday afternoon that he would be returning to the White House, President Trump also urged Americans to not “be afraid of Covid.”

It is still unknown when President Trump will return to the campaign trail. With the presidential election less than 30 days away, and with the standard length of quarantine for the virus lasting 14 days, this is a major obstacle for the incumbent president, who has throughout the pandemic continued to hold large-scale in-person rallies and events.

The president has stated, however, that he intends on still participating in the second presidential debate, saying that he’s “looking forward” it.

The debate is scheduled for Thursday, October 15 in Miami and will air from 9 to 10:30 pm (Eastern Standard Time). The first and only vice-presidential debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) will happen Wednesday, October 7 in Salt Lake City, Utah and will air from 9 to 10:30 pm (Eastern Standard Time).

BREAKING: Clinton herself ‘agreed’ to leak Trump-Russia allegations to press

Remember this 2016 post from Hillary herself just days away from the election? During Friday’s trial of her former attorney Michael Sussmann, some juicy details behind this vey post have emerged.

“Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager, said that Clinton ‘agreed’ to leak allegations that the Trump Organization had a secret communications channel with Russia’s Alfa Bank to the media during his Friday testimony” reports National Review.

The media “report” Hillary tweeted about above, was spoon-fed to them with her blessing. Mook also revealed the “purpose” for the campaign to leak it to the press was to have a reporter “run it down” further and “vet it out.”

As for Mrs. Clinton’s involvement, Mook added that he “discussed it with Hillary as well” after which, “she agreed to” their decision to turn the loose gossip over to the press.

She was then able to use Slate’s “reporting” to discuss the fake collusion publicly. Clinton then tweeted the campaign’s press release on the “statement from Jake Sullivan on New Report Exposing Trump’s Secret Line of Communication to Russia.”

FBI agent James Baker, the then-agent who Sussmann took the Alfa Bank information to, testified in the trial Wednesday. He said he was “100 percent confident” that Sussmann said he wasn’t representing a client when they met.

A text message from Sussmann to Baker from the day prior reads: “Jim — it’s Michael Sussmann. I have something time-sensitive (and sensitive) I need to discuss. Do you have availability for a short meeting tomorrow? I’m coming on my own — not on behalf of a client or company — want to help the Bureau. Thanks.”

National Review reports of the case:

The former FBI general counsel said that he would have treated the meeting and subsequent investigation differently had he known Sussmann was coming forward on behalf of the Clinton campaign.

 The evidence that Sussmann delivered to Baker came in the form of Domain Name System (DNS) data that allegedly showed frequent communications between servers associated with the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank. The data was provided to Sussmann by Joffe, an executive at the cybersecurity firm Neustar, which was also being represented by Sussmann as part of his role as a partner at the Perkins Coie law firm.

FBI agent Scott Hellman testified Tuesday that he was immediately skeptical of the data and accompanying analysis that suggested illicit communications between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank. In fact, the quality of the analysis was so poor, that Hellman questioned whether its source had a “mental disability” in a private chat with FBI colleagues, obtained by prosecutors.

Opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which Perkins Coie hired to work on behalf of the Clinton campaign, translated the DNS data into laymen’s terms and pitched it to various reporters, including Franklin Foer, a writer for Slate.

 “We certainly hoped that he would publish an article,” former Fusion GPS employee Lauren Seago testified.

Foer obliged them, touting the claims in an article published on October 31, 2016, a little over a week before Election Day.
