  • A man was injured Sunday when the car he was driving crashed through a barrier and plunged to the ground from the fourth floor of a parking garage.  >> Read more trending news The driver of the silver Mercedes Benz SUV crashed through a barrier around 1:30 p.m., flying off the parking garage and landing on its roof on the sidewalk below, according to the Times-Picayune.  A group of bystanders helped flip the vehicle back over, the Times-Picayune reported, and the driver, whose name has not been released, was conscious and taken to a hospital with unknown injuries.  New Orleans police are investigating the incident.
  • As President Donald Trump flew to Helsinki, Finland for his Monday meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Democrats in Congress demanded that Mr. Trump scrap the summit, pointing to last week’s federal indictments of a dozen Russian Intelligence officers as part of the sweeping investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States election. “Donald Trump must press Putin hard on the issue of election interference,” said Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer on Sunday, as Democrats made clear they want tough words from the President on the Russia investigation relayed directly to the Putin. The President’s schedule said Messrs. Trump and Putin would meet one-on-one for 90 minutes, to be followed by a working lunch with top aides. Schumer said during those meetings, the President should formally request that Russia extradite the 12 Russian Intelligence officers indicted last Friday by a federal grand jury, on charges that they hacked computers in the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee , in a bid to influence the 2016 election. The Senate’s top Democrat communicated those demands in a Sunday phone conversation with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was accompanying the President to the Putin summit. “If President Trump insists on meeting with Putin, I can’t stop him,” said Rep. Denny Heck (D-WA). “But I will insist he confront Putin at every turn for his interference in our democracy.” Spoke w/ @SecPompeo today to make 3 points: 1st, I don’t believe the meeting should take place but if it is going to happen, @realDonaldTrump must press Putin hard on the issue of election interference. He can’t simply raise it, accept Putin’s denial & then let him off the hook. — Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) July 15, 2018 On the eve of his meeting with Putin, the President wasn’t taking shots at the Russian leader, but rather, the U.S. press corps, Democrats, and the Russia investigation in general. “Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the people,” the President tweeted on Sunday, as he prepared to leave his golf retreat in Scotland for the flight to Finland. Over the weekend, Mr. Trump brushed off the highly detailed indictments leveled against Russian Intelligence, blaming the success of cyber attack on the Obama Administration. “Why didn’t they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?” the President tweeted. Lawmakers in Congress were not only focused on the issue of election interference, but also expressing concern about what Mr. Trump might do with regards to other issues, as Democrats also publicly urged the President not to relax economic sanctions placed on Russia, after its moves to annex Crimea, and amid ongoing Russian-sponsored military action inside eastern Ukraine. While GOP lawmakers say they want a better relationship with Moscow, they have publicly cautioned the President to be careful in negotiations with the Russian leader. “Putin is tough, he’s smart, he’s ruthless,” said Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL). “He’s probably going to want to get a lot, and give nothing.” Sen. @JohnCornyn says @POTUS must be “clear eyed” about meeting with Putin. pic.twitter.com/Row1pYYpcV — Face The Nation (@FaceTheNation) July 15, 2018 “President Trump is doing the right thing,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Sunday about the meeting with Putin, though the Kentucky Republican made clear that, “Russia shouldn’t meddle in our elections.” “Putin is an autocrat, he’s a thug,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) on the CBS program “Face the Nation,” as he urged the President to realize who he’s dealing with. In recent days, the President has given no indication that he will bring up the issue of election interference in 2016 by Russia, as Mr. Trump continues to deride the investigation of possible ties between Russian actions and his campaign as a ‘witch hunt’ and a ‘hoax.’ But last Friday’s indictments painted the most complete picture yet of just how active Russian Intelligence was in hacking emails and documents from Democrats, spreading those materials to Wikileaks via the fake persona “Guccifer 2.0” – who claimed to be Romanian. When a company hired by the DNC publicly blamed Russian Intelligence for hacking efforts in June of 2016, prosecutors said the Russians simply lied. “In response, the Conspirators created the online persona Guccifer 2.0 and falsely claimed to be a lone Romanian hacker to undermine the allegations of Russian responsibility for the intrusion.” Key point in Special Counsel Mueller’s indictment: Guccifer 2.0 was a Russian front that coordinated the release of Democrats stolen emails to influence the 2016 election. — Sen Dianne Feinstein (@SenFeinstein) July 15, 2018 Among the highlights of the latest indictment by the Office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller: + Extremely detailed allegations against a dozen GRU (Russian Intelligence) agents for hacking into the DNC and DCCC. + The indictment says a candidate for Congress is 2016 contacted Guccifer 2.0 – which was really Russian Intelligence – and received ‘stolen documents’ about their election opponent. + Details about contacts between “Organization 1” – which is clearly Wikileaks – and Russian Intelligence, about leaking emails from John Podesta and other documents from inside the DNC and DCCC. The only response from Wikileaks has been this video: https://t.co/cLRcuIiQXz pic.twitter.com/EZ3bTbMffR — WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) July 13, 2018 + Russian Intelligence not only targeted state election boards and websites, but also county election websites, in at least three states. Also, more than 100 spear phishing emails were sent to groups involved in elections in “numerous Florida counties.” + Russian Intelligence also obtained “analytics” developed by the Hillary Clinton campaign, by hacking into the company that ran its ‘cloud’ resources. It wasn’t clear from the indictment what was done with that inside campaign information. You can read the latest Special Counsel indictments at this link.
  • Firefighters responded to a call at the She Lounge early Sunday morning on East Matthew Brady Street. The call went out around 1 a.m. A Tulsa police supervisor says there was no fire, but it didn't appear that way. “With the thick fog inside and coughing club goers, it appeared that there was a fire inside,” the supervisor said.   Apparently, someone was assaulted, a larger disturbance broke out and 'security deployed a large amount of pepper spray inside the establishment.' This caused club goers to flee the place coughing. During this time, the assault victim left the scene and could not be located.
  • If you have outdoor plans for today, bring sunscreen and an umbrella. National Weather Service Meteorologist Craig Sullivan says you may need both. “It will be pretty similar to what we saw on Saturday,” Sullivan said.  “Once again, chance of showers around in the morning.  A chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.” The high for Sunday will be around 97 degrees.  There will also be a heat advisory in effect for Tulsa and surrounding areas from noon till 8 p.m. NWS is reporting a slight chance for storms Sunday night.  The low will be near 76 degrees.  
  • A day after the Special Counsel looking into Russian interference in the 2016 elections returned a new series of indictments against specific Russian intelligence agents, and just before his first summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, President Donald Trump on Saturday blamed the Obama Administration for not doing enough to stop Russia’s cyber meddling during his bid for the White House two years ago. “The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration,” the President tweeted from Scotland, where he is spending the weekend at his Turnberry golf resort. “Why didn’t Obama do something about it? Because he thought Crooked Hillary Clinton would win, that’s why,” the President added. The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration. Why didn’t they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 14, 2018 These Russian individuals did their work during the Obama years. Why didn’t Obama do something about it? Because he thought Crooked Hillary Clinton would win, that’s why. Had nothing to do with the Trump Administration, but Fake News doesn’t want to report the truth, as usual! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 14, 2018 In his tweets about the indictments the past two days, Mr. Trump made no mention of his Monday summit meeting in Helsinki, Finland with the Russian leader, and gave no indication whether or not the issue of election interference would be on their agenda. As for the indictments handed down on Friday by a federal grand jury, what exactly did we learn from the details, and what trails might they point to in terms of further investigation? Let’s take a look: 1. A highly detailed trail of Russian intelligence involvement. For those who have complained about the lack of actual evidence of Russian involvement in the 2016 elections, this latest indictment showed just how much specific and highly detailed information is in the hands of federal investigators and U.S. Intelligence. The indictment not only names those Russian Intelligence (GRU) agents who were at the keyboard, but details how the information was gained by the GRU, and then ultimately spread into the public domain by a third party. “This is jaw-droppingly impressive forensic work,” said Thomas Rid, a Professor of Strategic Studies at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies. Rid’s bottom line – the indictment was “historically unprecedented in scope, detail, and likely impact.” The former U.S. Ambassador to Russia under President Obama had this to say: I’m very impressed that Mueller was able to name the 12 GRU officers in the new indictment. Demonstrates the incredible capabilities of our intelligence community. Kremlin will take note. — Michael McFaul (@McFaul) July 13, 2018 2. Guccifer 2.0 was not some Romanian hacker. The latest indictment from Special Counsel Robert Mueller spells out what many experts had long figured about the persona of “Guccifer 2.0,” who handed out information from certain hacks of the DNC – that it was actually a Russian intelligence agent, posing as someone who wasn’t working for Moscow. Thomas Rid says, “the indictment doesn’t just show Guccifer 2 was managed by a specific GRU unit — it *reconstructs the internet searches made while some GRU officer was drafting the first post as Guccifer 2*.” It is obvious from the level of detail in the indictment that U.S. Intelligence and law enforcement have a lot of communications from inside the GRU on Guccifer 2.0, and how that group made contacts with certain U.S. persons, including one who was “in regular contact with the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump.” At this point, there is no evidence any of those people in the U.S. who contacted Guccifer 2.0 knew who they were dealing with, but the indictment makes the case that the false Romanian cover was just a way for Moscow to deny Russian responsibility. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment: “The Conspirators, posing as Guccifer 2.0, wrote to a person who was in regular contact with senior members of the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump” pic.twitter.com/tUv78JyldW — Edward Hardy (@EdwardTHardy) July 14, 2018 3. Candidate for Congress asks for help from Russian intelligence. Whether or not you knew that Guccifer 2.0 wasn’t really from Romania, the indictment makes clear that at least one person running for the Congress in 2016 – that person was not identified by name or party – got in touch with Guccifer 2.0, and asked for help against their opponent. “On or about August 15, 2016, the Conspirators, posing as Guccifer 2.0, received a request for stolen documents from a candidate for the U.S. Congress,” the indictment states. “The Conspirators responded using the Guccifer 2.0 persona and sent the candidate stolen documents related to the candidate’s opponent.” It would seem to make sense that since the Russians had information from inside the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the recipient of that information would have been a Republican – but that’s not fully detailed. It raises some interesting questions. Who was that candidate? Did that person get elected? Is he/she serving in the Congress right now? Is that person involved in questioning the Russia investigation? I asked the office of @SpeakerRyan about the unnamed congressional candidate who allegedly requested and received stolen documents from the Russians. Response: 'We haven’t had any communication with DOJ and don’t know anything beyond what was in the indictment.' — Olivier Knox (@OKnox) July 13, 2018 4. Mueller: GRU responsible for the Podesta hack. In the emails leaked out by Wikileaks from Clinton campaign chief John Podesta before the 2016 elections, was the actual spear phishing email that was used to get Podesta to change his email password. The indictment says that Russian Intelligence agents – using the ID “john356gh” – put together a fake link in an email for Podesta, which did not go to Google, but instead to “GRU-created website.” That email was sent to Podesta on March 19, 2016, and around March 21, 2016, the indictment says two specific agents “stole the contents of (Podesta’s) email account, which consisted of over 50,000 emails.” The indictment says the same ‘john356gh’ account was used “to mask additional links included in spear phishing emails sent to numerous individuals affiliated with the Clinton Campaign,” all from the email, “hi.mymail@yandex.com.” This was not a 400 pound guy sitting in his bedroom. 5. “Organization 1” is clearly Wikileaks. The latest indictment also further cements the evidence that Wikileaks worked with Russian intelligence operatives, helping them to release emails from top Clinton aide John Podesta, as well as others within the Democratic National Committee. The indictment does not specifically name “Wikileaks,” but instead refers to it as “Organization 1” – while detailing how that group released information on Podesta, and others. “In order to expand their interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the Conspirators transferred many of the documents they stole from the DNC and the chairman of the Clinton Campaign to Organization 1.” The indictment says the GRU at one point sent a file with emails that was titled, “wk dnc link1.txt.gpg.” Since the indictment was issued on Friday, Wikileaks made no denial – instead posting a video on Twitter showing President Trump talking about Wikileaks during the 2016 campaign. https://t.co/cLRcuIiQXz pic.twitter.com/EZ3bTbMffR — WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) July 13, 2018 6. Mueller indicates Russian obtained Clinton campaign ‘analytics.’ One of the more interesting pieces of information in this new indictment is the revelation that Russian agents hacked into the cloud system used by the Hillary Clinton campaign, which “contained test applications related to the DNC’s analytics.” The term analytics would refer to voter data and other election information used by the campaign, as officials try to figure out what voter groups, or what areas to target in a campaign – in some cases, a road map for what the campaign might have been doing. The indictment does not indicate what was done with the information taken from the DNC computers – but it raises some interesting ‘what if’ type of questions on how that could have been put to use before Election Day. 7. Russian Intel targeted county election websites. Tucked into Friday’s indictment is also a charge that Russian Intelligence probed not just the computers of state election boards, but also down to the county level, checking on websites in Florida, Georgia, and Iowa. Florida was also targeted in a different way, as the GRU allegedly sent ‘over 100 spear phishing emails to organizations and personnel involved in elections in numerous Florida counties.’ Those emails, according to the charges, contained malware embedded into an attached Word document. The indictment did not indicate what the Russian units were after at the county level – but a typical Supervisor of Elections would have a lot of voter information in their computer systems, and also would be on the front lines of vote tabulation on Election night. 8. The person “in regular contact” with Trump Campaign. As mentioned above, the indictment says that members of Russian intelligence – under the cover of Guccifer 2.0 – exchanged messages with someone “who was in regular contact with senior members of the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump.” The quick assumption of those following this story was that is Roger Stone, the one-time foreign policy adviser to the campaign, who was pushed aside before the elections in 2016, but has talked in the past about being in touch with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. At first, Stone rejected the assertion that the indictment might be referring to him and contacts with Wikileaks, but a few hours later on CNN, Stone acknowledged that was a possibility.
