Opinion: Trump's case against the FBI is disproved

  • The IG found that the FBI's investigation into Russian election interference, codenamed "Crossfire Hurricane," was opened on July 31 based on intelligence from a friendly foreign government that Trump's foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos, had received a suggestion from Russia that it had damaging information on Hilary Clinton and could help the Trump campaign.
  • But these failures, the IG noted, "taken together resulted in FISA applications that made it appear that the information supporting probable cause was stronger than was actually the case." Importantly, however, the IG did not find that these errors or omissions were a result of "intentional misconduct" on the part of FBI agents, but internal procedural lapses and misjudgments.
  • The IG also found that the use of these informants was "not for the sole purpose of monitoring activities protected by the First Amendment" — meaning that they were not being used to "spy" on the political activities of the campaign, but rather to obtain information and intelligence relevant to the FBI's investigation into election interference.

Mike Flynn's blunt interview with staffers kicked off the investigation into bombshell Afghanistan report

  • Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, found himself in the spotlight for his prior statements about America's war in Afghanistan.

TELEMENTAL HEALTH REPORT: How telehealth can help US hospitals and health systems manage the $238 billion mental health crisis

  • One way hospitals can more effectively triage patients and gain quicker access to mental health specialists when they need them is by equipping EDs with telemental health technology — which allows doctors to virtually connect with remote psychiatrists when patients come into the ED in need of a psychiatric consultation.
  • Telemental health solutions have helped hospitals better allocate a meager army of mental health specialists, pare down wait times for patients, and optimize the flow of patients in and out of ED beds.
  • In this report, Business Insider Intelligence explores how the onus of the US' mental health crisis falls on health systems and hospitals, and how they can navigate the costly dilemma via telemental health.
  • We first dive into the challenges providers are presented with amid the crisis and how traditional mental health strategies are falling short in addressing them.

The 34 words from Alexander Downer that set off an FBI firestorm

  • Just 34 words long, the key element of former London High Commissioner Alexander Downer's cable to Canberra would become the main trigger for the FBI's controversial counter-intelligence operation into Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.
  • While Mr Downer's unwitting role in unleashing what ultimately turned into Robert Mueller's traumatic two-year Russia probe has been known about for a while, a long-anticipated watchdog's report released in Washington on Monday (Tuesday AEDT) has given fresh support to what Mr Trump and his supporters have been saying all along: that the FBI's so-called Crossfire Hurricane probe was set off by a hair trigger.
  • Mr Downer stated that Mr Papadopoulos "suggested the Trump team had received some kind of suggestion from Russia that it could assist this process with the anonymous release of information during the campaign that would be damaging to Mrs Clinton [and President Obama]", according to Monday's report.

The author of the Trump-Russia dossier said he has been friendly with Ivanka Trump for years and was 'favorably disposed' to the family, calling bias accusations 'ridiculous'

  • The Department of Justice's inspector general report on the origins of the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, released Monday, summarized the inspector general's interviews with Steele, who prepared a dossier of opposition research on Trump in 2016 for the firm Fusion GPS.
  • For years, President Donald Trump and Republicans have railed against Steele and Fusion GPS for coming up with a biased, unsubstantiated dossier on Trump that they falsely claim sparked the FBI's Russia investigation in the first place.
  • In 2010, Trump and Steele reportedly discussed the possibility of working together on business matters when Steele left the British intelligence service M16 and co-founded the private corporate consultancy firm Orbis Business Intelligence along with Christopher Burrows.
  • Steele and Ivanka discussed Orbis potentially consulting with the Trump Organization, where Ivanka served as an executive vice president for acquisitions, "regarding its planned expansion into foreign markets," ABC said citing sources familiar with the matter.
