A new report from The New Yorker reveals some details of a “conspiracy memo” that circulated around the Trump White House last year.

Per Ronan Farrow and Adam Entous, this “Echo Chamber” memo contained some details of supposed meddling by former Obama administration aides:

The memo claimed that the “communications infrastructure” that the Obama White House used to “sell Obamacare and the Iran Deal to the public” had been moved to the private sector, now that the former aides were out of government. It called the network the Echo Chamber and accused its members of mounting a coördinated effort “to undermine President Trump’s foreign policy” through organized attacks in the press against Trump and his advisers. “These are the Obama loyalists who are probably among those coordinating the daily/weekly battle rhythm,” the memo read, adding that they likely operated a “virtual war room.” The memo lists Ben Rhodes, a former deputy national-security adviser to President Obama, as “likely the brain behind this operation” and Colin Kahl, Vice President Joe Biden’s former national-security adviser, as its “likely ops chief.” Rhodes and Kahl both said in interviews that the allegations are false and no such organization exists.

n early 2017, some of Donald Trump ’s advisers concluded that they faced a sophisticated threat responsible for “coordinated attacks” on the new Administration. Instead of being about enemies in a distant war zone, however, the network described in the memo consisted of former aides to President

The report reveals that some of the details in the memo also appear in documents from the private intel agency Black Cube, a name youmay be familiar with if you’ve followed Farrow’s reporting over the past year.

The memo itself apparently opens by saying, “The communications infrastructure that the Obama admin used to sell Obamacare and the Iran Deal to the public (‘Echo Chamber’) has been shifted from the White House into the private sector, and is now being used to undermine President Trump’s foreign policy.”

Brett Kavanaugh Should Have to Own His Career as a Partisan Attack Dog .
Photo Illustration by Kelly Caminero/The Daily Beast Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court hearings start next Tuesday. Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee will strive to keep the focus on his years on the bench—since 2006, he’s been a judge on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. They will try, in other words, to impress upon America that this man wears a robe, his career is that of distinguished jurist, and he calls proverbial balls and strikes.Democrats will, inevitably and necessarily, ask Kavanaugh questions about his judicial outlook and some of his opinions. They should try to pin him down on Roe v.
