Republican congressman releases full transcript of Bruce Ohr hearing (NBC News)

A top House Republican on Friday unilaterally released the transcript of congressional testimony from a top FBI official that highlighted connections between federal investigators and the source of opposition research into President Donald Trump’s Russia connections that the GOP has argued undermines the impartiality of the Mueller investigation.

Quarterbacks being traded ahead of free agency are always a big story and always a big surprise, even when it’s a guy like Keenum, who has been relegated to bench duty in Denver thanks to the acquisition of Joe Flacco.
