The News Blender — Omarosa, the former Apprentice star, Trump campaign member, and President Trump aide, released another audio recording, this time featuring Lara Trump, Eric Trump’s wife, President Trump’s daughter-in-law, and campaign leader. In the audio recording Lara Trump offers Omarosa a job on the campaign for $15,000 a month, money Lara Trump said would come from “donors,” to President Trump’s re-election campaign. Omarosa believes this job offer that came after she was fired by Chief of Staff John Kelly, as was covered @ The News Blender, for “integrity,” issues, was only offered so that Omarosa wasn’t able to talk to the media.

Catherine Herridge reported on Fox News that new documents reviewed by Fox News show that “Bruce Ohr was the back channel between the FBI and Steele after the FBI cut ties with the Steel.”  

Authors note: This two minute and some change video covers several of Trump Tweets that he issued Thursday evening. 

The Washington Post — Glenn Kessler on Thursday published a piece, before the latest President Trump tweets, that explains connections between Christopher Steel and DOJ employee Bruce Ohr. He also points out that emails that have been read, have not been released to the public. It’s unclear based on reporting what Ohr and Steele spoke about o if it was even President Trump himself, as it’s possible Ohr and Steel, who formed a relationship over working the same mob cases, were talking about Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska who is connected to Paul Manafort.

The New York Times — Former CIA director John Brennan who President Trump via his Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders revoked his security clearance, as was reported @ The News Blender, penned an opinion piece that appeared in The New York Times on Thursday. 

In Brennan’s opinion piece he states that Russia’s denial of “interfering,” in the Presidential election of 2016, is in a word, “hogwash.” He writes based on what he and former FBI director James Comey had discussed, about the Russian’s interference, information that was later made public, that he is sure that Russia did interfere.

In regards to President Trump campaign Brennan writes, “Mr. Trump’s claims of no collusion are, in a word, hogwash. The only questions that remain are whether the collusion that took place constituted criminally liable conspiracy, whether obstruction of justice occurred to cover up any collusion or conspiracy, and how many members of “Trump Incorporated” attempted to defraud the government by laundering and concealing the movement of money into their pockets.”

For What It’s Worth — November 11th is Veterans Day.  

The News Blender — In September of 2017 President Trump floated the idea of a “French,” style type Military Parade.

On Thursday the cost of the parade, that at first wasn’t going to include tanks, added the tanks, bringing the new estimated cost of a Military Parade that servicemen and women and Veterans did not approve off, to about $92 million, the Military Parade that had been suggested for November 10th of this year has now been pushed froward into 2019 at the soonest. 

The Mayor of D.C. Muriel Bowser pushed back at President Trump’s claim that it was “local politician’s,” to blame of the cost via Twitter

The News Blender — Thursday CNBC reported that the estimated cost was split between the Pentagon and Department of Homeland security, “The figure consists of $50 million from the Pentagon and $42 million from interagency partners such as the Department of Homeland Security.” For the price tag of an estimated $92 million you get, “security, transportation of parade assets, aircraft, as well as temporary duty for troops,” and “eight tanks, as well as other armored vehicles, including Bradleys, Strykers and M113s.”
