RUSH EXCERPT:

MATTHEWS: “Big developments tonight in the investigation into Russia’s election meddling here. “The New York Times” reported today that the CIA had evidence of Russia’s effort to help Trump in the election earlier than we thought. And before anyone else. The Times reports that in late August, ten weeks before the election, John Brennan, then the CIA director, was so concerned about increasing evidence of Russia’s election meddling that he began a series of urgent individual briefings for eight top members of Congress, some of them on secure phone lines while they were on their summer break. Officials said Mr. Brennan also indicated that unnamed advisers to Mr. Trump might be working with the Russians to interfere in the election. Of course that’s what we’re trying to find out right now, to nail that one down. Joining me now is ericlish blou who wrote that report, and also terrorism analyst, our friend Malcolm nance. I want to start with Eric on this one. Tell us what’s new here because we went all around this thing. The role of the Russians, their purpose in the campaign, our campaign, and what role the trump people played.”
