In the latest episode of HuffPost's "Candidate Confessional" podcast, Hillary Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri told the hosts she tried to feed the Russia hacking story to reporters during the 2016 campaign, but they didn't really care, focusing instead on Hillary's emails and the DNC leaks:

"It was so surreal. I felt as if I had been catapulted into another dimension where we would have these surreal conversations about the Russians and Trump and Mike Flynn and Carter Page and Donald Trump Jr. saying, 'We're really invested in Russia.' And no one in the press really cared."

On the other hand:

Trump and his team have accused the press of overplaying and even making up the Russia collusion story. The press wrote numerous stories on the DNC hacks, although Palmieri claimed the focus was on the contents of the emails, not on Russia's suspected role.

Why it matters: The rapid influx of unaccompanied children is building into the administration's first new crisis. A presentation created by the Domestic Policy Council spells out the dimensions with nearly 40 slides full of charts and details.

FBI director: Jan. 6 Capitol attack was domestic terrorism

The FBI views the Jan. 6 Capitol siege as an act of domestic terrorism, director Christopher Wray testified in his opening statement Tuesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Why it matters: The FBI's designation of the attack as domestic terrorism puts the perpetrators "on the same level with ISIS and homegrown violent extremists," Wray said.
