Duration: 06:35

A couple of months ago the Pulitzer Prize judges noted the extraordinary impact of a story by New Yorker journalist Ronan Farrow, blowing open the lengthy history of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s abuse of women.
It’s made Farrow himself a global celebrity, although his goal is to keep the focus on the victims of sexual harassment and worse.
Ronan Farrow will be in Australia in July to speak at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival and the Antidote Festival at the Sydney Opera House.
He speaks with 730’s Leigh Sales.

FBI Officials Claim No Recollection of Key Moments in Clinton Investigation, IG Report Reveals
 

mikenova shared this story .

High-level FBI officials investigating Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information claimed they had no recollection of key events when questioned by the Office of the Inspector General (IG), Justice Department’s watchdog.

Specifically, the officials were foggy on the month that followed a late September 2016 discovery of a large trove of Clinton emails on the laptop of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner.

The small team at FBI headquarters working on the Clinton investigation failed to examine the new evidence for about a month and later tried to explain themselves with “unpersuasive justifications,” according to a highly anticipated IG report on the investigation released June 14.

The leading officials in the investigation said they couldn’t remember at least a dozen communications regarding Weiner’s laptop. Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe had a similar response at least five times. In two instances, not even seeing notes from the communications appeared to refresh his memory—even his own notes, in one instance.

Weiner was exposed for engaging in sexually obscene electronic communications with a minor on Oct. 21, 2016. On Sept. 26, 2016, the FBI field office in New York obtained a federal search warrant on Weiner’s devices, and his lawyer reportedly handed them over to the New York Southern District Attorney’s Office, including the content of Weiner’s iCloud online storage.

(Samira Bouaou/The Epoch Times)The FBI agent assigned to the case soon discovered hundreds of thousands of emails on the laptop, including between Clinton and Huma Abedin, Weiner’s wife, who left him just weeks before.

Abedin was Clinton’s closest confidante. “[I]f people wanted to get something to Clinton, they’d email it to Huma and say please print for the Secretary. And she would, she was a gatekeeper in that way,” lead investigator on the Clinton case Peter Strzok told the IG.

Weiner’s case agent also found Blackberry messages between Abedin and Clinton. Clinton used a Blackberry at the beginning of her tenure as state secretary, including a roughly two-month period from which the FBI was previously unable to recover her communications.

The emails and messages reached back to at least 2007.

The FBI agent who made the discovery then reported it to his supervisors and was told to stop looking at any emails involving Clinton and Abedin.

The next day, the field office’s Assistant Director in Charge William Sweeney broke the news at a teleconference with about 40 top FBI officials, including McCabe.

It was like “dropping a bomb in the middle of the meeting” said Paul Abbate, then-assistant director in charge of the Washington Field Office, who was present. “[E]verybody realized the significance of this.”

McCabe, however, told the IG he didn’t recall Sweeney talking about the laptop. The IG showed McCabe his own notes from that day, which included, “NY – … Weiner – atty took data off cloud – 2007 emails.” McCabe maintained that he did not recall this.

After the teleconference, Sweeney then called McCabe and reported that they had found 347,000 emails so far.

McCabe said he remembered this call and that he briefed Bill Priestap, assistant director of the FBI counterintelligence division, which ran the Clinton investigation.

“[Y]ou need to get somebody up to New York right away to take a look at what they have because it might be Clinton emails,” McCabe claimed to have said.

Priestap told the IG he had no memory of this conversation.

(Alex Wong/Getty Images)That same evening, Strzok wrote via text message to his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who was McCabe’s legal counsel: “Got called up to Andy [McCabe]’s earlier … hundreds of thousands of emails turned over by Weiner’s atty to sdny, indudes a ton of material from spouse. Sending team up tomorrow to review.”

Strzok told the IG he had no recollection of that meeting wth McCabe. He said he couldn’t recall who first told him about the laptop, either.

Strzok’s notes from that day stated, “NY invest Weiner sexting 15 y’o. Weiner atty produces copy of everything Weiner has on iCloud to SDNY. Significant email from Huma [NFI – their email vs. her independent email]? Relevance to MYE, Clinton Foundation? MYE go review.”

“MYE” refers to “Midyear,” a codename for the Clinton investigation, while “NFI” means “not further identified.”

McCabe said he didn’t recall the meeting with Strzok either.

Sweeney said he also called then-Executive Assistant Directors Randall Coleman and Michael Steinbach as well as Priestap with the updated number of emails found. All three confirmed the calls.

Coleman said he called McCabe right after.

“I said, ‘Hey listen, I just got called by Sweeney. Here is what he told me.’ And I think Andy is like, ‘Yeah, I already know. I got it,’” Coleman told the IG. “[T]here was no doubt in my mind when we finished that conversation that [McCabe] understood … the gravity of what the find was.”

McCabe said he did not recall the conversation. Coleman’s memo about the call didn’t appear to refresh McCabe’s memory.

Priestap said the information from Sweeney was “explosive.” He sent an email to Strzok and a few others that night, saying, “Our agent and analyst should call [the New York agents].”

Sweeney communicated to Priestap that the New York agents couldn’t just show the emails to the Midyear team, because the New York search warrant only covered Weiner’s crimes and gave no authority to go through Abedin’s emails.

On Sept. 29, 2016, Priestap tasked an FBI attorney to follow up on the matter.

That day, people from the New York team had a conference call with some of Strzok’s subordinates from the Midyear team—nine people in total. Priestap’s lawyer also attended and told the IG that the New York agents weren’t sure “whether or not [the laptop] had anything to do with” the Midyear investigation.

Everybody else, however, told the IG they understood the laptop was connected to the Clinton investigation. The Midyear Supervisory Special Agent said he “knew right off the bat” that those were Clinton’s emails and that his people understood they “were going to need to get [another search] warrant to review this.”

The FBI attorney said she thought there was no need to get a warrant yet and that the New York team would follow up with Midyear later. When questioned by the IG, she said she couldn’t say why she thought that.

The attorney then briefed Strzok, who said he thought the matter could wait until the end of the year or the next year.

Meanwhile, Coleman was asked by Associate Deputy Director David Bowdich to brief then-FBI Director James Comey on the laptop.

Comey’s calendar for Oct. 4 included a meeting with Coleman, who said he didn’t remember this meeting. Coleman said it may have been about his upcoming retirement.

His notes that day stated:

(1) Anthony Wiener [sic]
(2) [Unrelated]
(3) Wiener [sic] – texting 15 yo – Sexually Explicit
9/26 – Federal SW – IPhone/IPAD/Laptop
Initial analysis of laptop – thousands emails
Hillary Clinton & Foundation
Crime Against Children

Coleman said he may have told the FBI executives about it, but couldn’t remember.

Comey told the IG he didn’t remember the meeting with Coleman either, but acknowledged it could have happened.

(Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)The New York team finished processing the laptop around Oct. 4, 2016, finding about 675,000 emails in total. The case agent said he was anxious that nobody from Midyear was getting back to him. He went to one of the district attorney’s prosecutors and asked her to talk to District Attorney Preet Bharara so “maybe they’d kick some of these lazy FBI folks in the butt and get them moving.”

Bharara later told the IG that they decided to talk to the Justice Department headquarters on Oct. 21, 2016, because of the concerns and “agitation” of the agent.

They talked to George Toscas, a high-ranking lawyer at the National Security Division, who then asked McCabe what was going on with the laptop case. Suddenly, the Midyear team seemed much more concerned.

“[M]any people in both FBI Headquarters and the New York Office were responsible for pushing the matter forward and failed to do so,” McCabe told the IG, calling it a “failure with many fathers, including many other FBI executives [beside McCabe].”

When asked by the IG, Comey denied having any recollection of the matter, which was raised at two meetings on Oct. 25 and 26.

On Oct. 27, 2016, the Midyear team met with Comey. Two people at the meeting, Priestap and Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson, said Comey asked whether the team could ignore the laptop and still claim they did a thorough job on the investigation. They told him it was too much to ignore.

Comey then told Congress the investigation was resuming—less than two weeks before the election.

The game they play:

The Manipulations of the Public Opinions

Trump tries to deflect the public attention from the Elections 2016 “Russia” (and several “significant others”do not miss this, it is very important) Scandal, by creating the “Biblical Children Border Crisis“, and Comey tries to deflect the unprecedented FBI criticism during his tenure by exploiting this crisis, (and “quite sincerely”, don’t get me wrong).

The name of the game is the same: to get the edge over the opponent in the court of the public opinion, and this looks very much like a political – ideological struggle. The phenomenon of “politicization” is ubiquitous and inescapable, that’s how it looks.

“Public opinion is a reed that moves with the wind. The rule of law is a rock that keeps us free”, said Judge Andrew Napolitano. Sounds about right.

IG Report Highlights FBI Counterspy Failings

BY: Bill Gertz

Disclosures by the Justice Department inspector general of political bias among FBI agents is focusing new attention on problems within the FBI’s once-storied counterintelligence division.

The report by Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz reveals evidence of politicization among senior FBI officials, notably the text message by Deputy Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Peter Strzok suggesting Strzok was willing to use official counterintelligence powers to “stop” Donald Trump from becoming president in the 2016 election campaign.

FBI counterintelligence, the mission of identifying and countering foreign spies, for decades operated as a distinct specialty for FBI agents trained to deal with spies rather than fighting criminals and terrorists.

As a senior FBI counterspy, Strzok wields significant power through access to intelligence information held in secret FBI databases and through court-ordered surveillance.

Another sign of counterintelligence problems at the FBI was the disclosure in the IG report that the FBI did not take any action against Russian meddling in the 2016 election until late September 2016 – despite the fact that Moscow’s operations had been underway since 2015.

The report said then-FBI Director James Comey directed the Counterintelligence Division to conduct a “multi-faceted effort” to protect the election from foreign interference.

“This tasking included the implementation of ‘a national supply chain risk management effort to identify vulnerabilities in voting infrastructure,’ engaging state election officials about potential threats, the investigation of ‘whether foreign adversaries were attempting to interfere with or improperly influence the’ 2016 election, and the investigation of certain U.S. persons’ contacts with foreign adversaries,” the report said.

FBI officials said the late September counter-interference operation was one reason the FBI delayed re-opening the email probe after several hundred thousand new emails were discovered on the laptop of Anthony Wiener, husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

The IG report made public last week reveals that several FBI counterintelligence officials, not only Strzok, showed clear signs of political bias in their communications.

Most of focus of the IG, however, was on Strzok who was escorted out of FBI headquarters on Tuesday amid an internal investigation into his conduct during the Clinton email investigation.

The IG report described Mr. Strzok as one of the most experienced FBI counterspies, who was promoted during the email investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private computer server from a Washington field officer supervisor to deputy assistant director.

Mr. Strzok led the email probe that began as a criminal investigation by the counterintelligence division but with an unusual twist – without a specific target. The lack of a target was unusual considering that all the emails found containing classified information were Ms. Clinton’s. The probe known by the code name Midyear Exam listed “UNSUB,” for unknown subject as the target.

The email probe began in July 2015 and a year later Mr. Strzok would be assigned to lead the FBI’s investigation into collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

The Russia investigation was given a higher priority than the email probe raising further questions about politicization considering Strzok’s criticisms of Trump in texts exchanged with Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer.

Mr. Strzok would eventually be assigned to the special counsel probe led by former FBI director Robert Mueller until his emails threatening the Trump campaign were uncovered. He was removed from the Mueller probe in July 2017.

Former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Randall Coleman, told the IG that not making Ms. Clinton the target of the email probe was unusual. “I don’t know [why] that was the case, why it was UNSUB. I’m really shocked that it would have stayed that way because certainly the investigation started really kind of getting more focused,” he is quoted in the IG report as saying.

Mr. Coleman said Mr. Strzok was picked to lead the email probe because he was “one of the most experienced and highly-regarded counterintelligence investigators within the FBI.”

The email probe included an undisclosed number of FBI counterintelligence agents and intelligence analysts, and during the email probe Mr. Coleman was replaced by E.W. “Bill” Priestap as head of counterintelligence.

Further evidence of politicization of the email took place after Andrew McCabe became deputy FBI director in early 2016. Mr. McCabe assigned Page, an FBI lawyer who was having an affair with Strzok, to be the deputy director’s personal liaison to the email probe.

Mr. McCabe was fired by President Trump earlier this year, and the IG report raised questions about his impartiality in the Clinton email probe based on his wife receiving $675,288 from Clinton associate Terry McAuliffe in 2015 to run for office in Virginia.

The IG said the arrangement with Page was unusual and upset FBI agents on the case.

“Several witnesses told the OIG that Page circumvented the official chain of command, and that Strzok communicated important Midyear case information to her, and thus to McCabe, without Priestap’s or [FBI executive Michael] Steinbach’s knowledge,” the IG report said.

The IG also said in internal FBI report criticized the Midyear probe and stated that FBI’s Criminal Division should have conducted the probe as criminal rather than let the counterintelligence section handle it.

On Capitol Hill Tuesday, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, questioned the FBI’s counterspy competence in the case.

“The FBI’s top counterintelligence official was unaware of possible evidence indicating Mrs. Clinton’s private email server had been penetrated by a foreign adversary and unaware of relevant legal process obtained during the investigation,” Goodlatte said.

Weakened U.S. counterintelligence

Critics have said U.S. counterintelligence was weakened during the Obama administration. One example was the mishandling of the arrest of 10 Russian illegal spies in New York in 2010.

Instead of charging the deep cover “illegal” spies with espionage – they did not enjoy the usual diplomatic immunity afforded to legal spies – the 10 Russians posing as Americans were sent back to Moscow without being fully interrogated.

As a result, valuable intelligence on Russian spying operations was lost.

The Obama administration at the time was seeking to curry favor with Russia as part of the failed reset policy toward Moscow.

The administration also failed to take action against Russian intelligence during its operations to interfere with the 2016 election. After the election, a group of Russian intelligence officers was expelled.

In contrast, during the Cold War, FBI counterspies achieved a major intelligence coup by recruiting as an informant the No. 2 official in the Communist Party USA, Morris Childs, who provided Kremlin and other valuable secrets between 1958 and 1982.

Michael Waller, an intelligence expert with the Center for Security Policy, said the IG report lays bare what some have been saying for decades: “The United States is the No. 1 target of every hostile intelligence service on earth.”

“With few exceptions, the FBI has very little to show that it has the strategy and leadership to cut off much more than the low-hanging fruit,” Waller said.

“It’s time to reorganize the whole FBI, retire a lot of the upper dead wood and fast-track the aggressive and capable younger field agents who think strategically and put the nation ahead of their careers,” he added. “That will help give the FBI the new leadership the country so desperately needs it to have.”

The IG report quoted Comey as concluding well before the email probe was ended that Ms. Clinton used the private email to discuss Top Secret information eight times and Secret data dozens of times. However Mr. Comey asserted that “there was no indication” Ms. Clinton knew sending the information was illegal, or that she intended to do so. He described it as a “fairly typical spill” of information.

Comey also told the IG that the same counterspies assigned to the email probe were working on the Russia probe and as a result were “overwhelmed.”

“It was Russia, Russia, Russia all the time,” Comey was quoted as saying, noting that he should have assigned “another Strzok” to the two investigations or even two separate teams of counterspies.

The IG questioned the assignment of Midyear probe members to the Russia investigation.

“We were surprised to learn that FBI leadership decided to assign many of the key members of the Midyear team, immediately after determining that no charges should be brought against then candidate Clinton, to the Russia investigation, which touched upon the campaign of then candidate Trump,” the IG said in a footnote.

“This is particularly so given the questions being raised by candidate Trump and his supporters regarding the declination decision in the Midyear investigation. While we recognize that staffing decisions are for management to make, we question the judgment of assigning agents who had just determined that one candidate running in an election should not be prosecuted to an investigation that relates to the campaign of the other candidate in the election.”

Strzok’s text message “exacerbated” the concerns, the report said.

“Surely, the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division had talented agents who were not involved in the Midyear investigation who could have fully staffed the Russia investigation,” the report said.

“Such a decision also would have eliminated the excuse we were given here about the Russia investigation impacting the ability of agents to address the Weiner laptop issue.”

The report noted Strzok’s “hostility for then candidate Trump and preference for a Clinton victory” in the text messages to Page.

Of particular concern was the Aug. 8, 2016 text from Strzok who told Page “we’ll stop” Trump from being elected.

Communications from two other FBI counterintelligence agents, described in the report as Agent 1 and Agent 5, also raise concerns.

At one point after Comey sent the Oct. 28, 2016 letter to Congress reopening the Clinton email probe, Agent 1 told Agent 5 “Not sure if Trump or fifth floor is worse.” The agent said the fifth floor was a reference to the Washington field office counterintelligence leaders.

Agent 1 was described as one of two agents who conducted the questioning of Clinton on July 2 that the IG said was tainted by the inclusion of two Clinton aides who were also witnesses in the email probe.

Agent 5 was described as an experienced counterintelligence agent who worked on a “filter team” to identify privileged communications among seized FBI documents to make sure the material was not reviewed by investigators.

An FBI spokeswoman referred questions to the IG report’s section containing the FBI response.

The FBI response included a single reference to counterintelligence. An FBI working group has been set up to examine whether in the future “it would be beneficial to team agents from different components and backgrounds to leverage respective skill sets and experiences, e.g., drawing on the experience of public corruption agents when conducting counterintelligence investigations.”

Strzok’s lawyer, Aitan Goelman, defended Strzok in a statement Tuesday.

“Just as he has been for the last 20 years, Pete Strzok remains a proud FBI agent who wants to continue working to keep the American people safe,” Goelman said.

“Pete has steadfastly played by the rules and respected the process, and yet he continues to be the target of unfounded personal attacks, political games and inappropriate information leaks,” he added.

“All of this seriously calls into question the impartiality of the disciplinary process, which now appears tainted by political influence. Instead of publicly calling for a long-serving FBI agent to be summarily fired, politicians should allow the disciplinary process to play out free from political pressure.”

Former FBI agent Mike German, a fellow at NYU’s Brennan Center who earlier worked for the ACLU, said he sees some merit in Trump’s concerns as well as Clinton’s complaints about the FBI’s handling of the investigation into her email practices.

“I have long criticized the FBI for how it has used its expanded authorities since 9/11,” German said. “My concern has been how they were used against the most vulnerable communities in America. There also should have been some recognition that such broad power could be used inappropriately against the most powerful as well.”

“Just the matter of fact that the FBI was investigating both presidential candidates during the election raises a lot of questions about how much power we’ve given this agency,” German added.

FBI policies require special approvals for many activities involving churches, political organizations and public officials. That’s a product of decades of documented abuses in investigations of left-wing groups, civil rights activists, and groups opposing wars in Vietnam, Latin America and Iraq, as well as animal rights and environmental activists. The ACLU is also still pressing litigation over the FBI’s use of informants to infiltrate mosques in Southern California after 9/11.

Y es que más de uno aprovechó para promover su agenda a favor de la comunidad hispana. Este fue el caso del senador demócrata Bill Nelson quien criticó la lentitud del gobierno federal en tomar acción tras el impacto del huracán María por Puerto Rico y de paso, endosar la estadidad para la isla.

Gobierno adiestrará profesionales de la salud para responder a incidentes de víctimas en masa
 

El Gobierno de Puerto Rico se une al Centro de Preparación Doméstica de la Agencia Federal para el Manejo de Emergencias (FEMA, por sus siglas en inglés), para adiestrar a funcionarios de manejo de emergencias y de la salud para responder a incidentes de víctimas en masa.

El adiestramiento de cuatro días y el simulacro se llevarán a cabo del 29 de mayo al 1 de junio, en el Hospital Ramón Ruiz Arnau de Bayamón, a unos 30 minutos al sur de San Juan.

Alrededor de 120 funcionarios de respuesta a emergencias y del cuidado de la salud participarán en el adiestramiento que ofrecerá el Negociado Estatal de Manejo de Emergencias de Puerto Rico, el Departamento de Salud de Puerto Rico, la Universidad de Puerto Rico, FEMA y el Departamento de Asuntos de Veteranos de los EE. UU.

El curso, Adiestramiento para la Respuesta a Emergencias en Hospitales para Incidentes de Víctimas en Masa, será impartido por expertos del Centro de Preparación Doméstica (https://cdp.dhs.gov/) y expertos locales de Puerto Rico. El adiestramiento se diseñó con el fin de preparar a los equipos de respuesta a emergencias y a los trabajadores de la salud para responder de manera efectiva a incidentes con materiales químicos, biológicos, explosivos, radiológicos y otros materiales peligrosos.

Los tres días de clases culminarán el 1 de junio con un simulacro para un incidente de víctimas en masa en el que los estudiantes practicarán lo que aprendieron en el salón de clase. Durante el simulacro, los equipos de respuesta operarán un área de tratamiento de emergencia para la evaluación inicial de los pacientes ambulatorios y no ambulatorios que hayan sido contaminados.

Esta será la primera vez que el Centro de Preparación Doméstica ofrece un adiestramiento y simulacro para víctimas en masa fuera de su instalación en Anniston, Alabama. Anualmente, el centro proporciona capacitación avanzada, y de todo riesgo, a unos 50,000 empleados de respuesta de los gobiernos estatales, locales, tribales y territoriales, así como del gobierno federal, gobiernos extranjeros y empresas privadas. El adiestramiento incluye la preparación, protección y respuesta a emergencias.

Los instructores del centro cuentan con un mínimo de 10 años de experiencia en su especialidad y han desempeñado una función clave en la respuesta de por lo menos un incidente, accidente o desastre de gran magnitud.

Para más información sobre la recuperación del huracán María, visite fema.gov/es/disaster/4339.

Para más información sobre el adiestramiento y el simulacro, comuníquese con Norma Negrón Falcón, oficial de prensa del Hospital Universitario Dr. Ramón Ruiz Arnau, al 787-787-5151, Ext. 8042, o por correo electrónico: nnegron@salud.pr.gov.

Senator Hatch Introduces Proposal, Suggests Reforms for Puerto Rico

U.S. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) this afternoon criticized the administration of Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello Nevares, the PROMESA Financial Oversight and Management Board, and recent statements of former Obama Administration officials regarding aid for the territory – with his harshest criticism directed at the Rossello Administration.Hatch began a statement on the Senate Floor regarding the bill that he introduced Thursday with Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) that would cut payroll taxes 50% for Puerto Ricans for two years, extend the refundable portion of the Child Tax Credit to Puerto Ricans with one child or two children,  empower the SEC to regulate investment funds limited to Puerto Rico, provide a number of benefits to small businesses in the islands, and include the territory in the Current Population Survey and study inclusion in other Federal data collection programs.

Provisions in the bill were recommended by PROMESA’s Congressional Task Force on Economic Growth in Puerto Rico which he chaired and on which Rubio served.

The Finance Committee Chairman estimated that the bill would inject $3.5 billion into the territory’s economy.

Hatch also discussed other Puerto Rico issues unrelated to his proposal. He explained that he voted for PROMESA because “Puerto Rico’s fiscal irresponsibility needed to be stopped and a promise of limiting litigation was inviting.” He went on to point out, however, that the “law has failed to prevent a tidal wave of litigation, as was promised.”

In addition, he said, “the promise of voluntary debt resolution has not been fulfilled, even for a restructuring agreement between creditors and Puerto Rico’s power authority.”

He expressed disappointment with the PROMESA Financial Board’s oversight of the territory’s budget, observing that, “it seems that the Oversight Board has largely been operating in the dark” and has been too dependent on the insular government for information.

“I am not without hope,” he went on, judging that the Board “has recently been slightly more aggressive in its demands for transparency.”

The Finance Committee Chairman noted that he has been “waiting nearly three years” for audited financial statements for the territorial government for the period after June 30, 2014.

He also criticized the Rossello Administration for “potentially politicizing” the insular government Institute of Statistics but his strongest criticism was of the Governor’s proposal to exempt income of foreign subsidiaries of manufacturers from the States from any Federal taxation.

He insisted that a “tax haven” would not be created in the territory and “the proponents do not understand recent history,” which included several Federal laws and regulations intended to prevent companies from avoiding taxation through Puerto Rico on income derived from work in the States.

Hatch also took issue with former Obama Administration officials who continue to push their proposal to have the Federal government give Puerto Rico a $600 million a year grant to re-establish a local earned income tax credit program. He expressed concern about territorial government administration of such funds.

Today’s Headlines and Commentary

At a meeting on Monday afternoon, the White House and the Justice Department appeared to avert a conflict connected to the FBI’s use of an informant in the early stages of the Russia investigationreports the Washington Post. The House intelligence committee chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, is seeking information about the source. John Kelly, the White House chief of staff, will oversee a meeting between officials from the FBI, the Justice Department, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the congressional leadership to review sensitive documents about the informant. On Sunday night, the president tweeted that he intended to order the Justice Department to open an investigation into the use of the source. Later that night, the Justice Department announced that it would refer the investigation to its inspector general. The president on Monday convened a meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI director Christopher Wray, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to talk about the developments.

The Trump administration has placed new sanctions on Venezuela in order to block President Nicolás Maduro from selling off government debt for personal gain, the New York Times reports. On Monday, President Trump signed an executive order barring U.S. companies or citizens from buying debt or accounts receivable from the Venezuelan government. This news comes after President Maduro won a second term on Sunday in what the U.S. government called a “sham” election. The U.S. devised the sanctions to close off an “avenue for corruption” that senior administration officials said they had observed Maduro and government officials using to enrich themselves.

President Trump has glowingly endorsed new CIA director Gina Haspel, hailing her time at the CIA, CNN reports. Trump spoke of the universal respect for Haspel, the milestone of her becoming the first woman to lead the CIA, and her overcoming of “very negative politics” during the confirmation process.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has threatened Iran with the “strongest sanctions in history” if certain conditions are not met, Al Jazeera reports. Pompeo set out twelve demands for inclusion in a new nuclear treaty with Iran, including releasing all U.S. hostages, ending its proliferation of ballistic missiles, withdrawing all forces from Syria, ending its support for the Houthis in Yemen, ending its support for Middle East terrorist groups including Hezbollah, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad, ending its support for terrorists in Afghanistan, and ending its “threatening behavior” in the region.

Before the start of business, Just Security provides a curated summary of up-to-the-minute

The KOREAN PENINSULA

South Korean President Moon Jae-is scheduled to meet President Trump today in Washington, with the fate of the proposed June 12 summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and Moon’s own status as peacemaker, in the balance. Jonathan Cheng reports at the Wall Street Journal.

Moon has staked his presidency on the peace efforts and the White House visit represents a crucial opportunity to soothe Trump’s anxieties, leading one C.I.A. official to comment that “Moon has to come in as assuager-in-chief and massage the situation between Trump and Kim.” David Nakamura reports at the Washington Post.

South Korean national security adviser Chung Eui-yong has stated that there is a “99.9 percent” chance of the summit going ahead, playing down recent reports that Trump has become apprehensive about the prospects of a meeting claiming that “We have perceived none of that.” Choe Sang-Hun reports at the New York Times.

“It increasingly looks like the Moon administration overstated North Korea’s willingness to deal. Moon will probably get an earful over that,” one expert has commented, although a Blue House official has remarked that nonetheless, Moon will “likely tell President Trump what to expect and what not to expect from Kim.” AFP reports.

Many in South Korea have leveled blame for the problems in the diplomatic process at U.S. security adviser John Bolton with former Unification Minister Chung Dong-young commenting that “There are several land mines on the way to the summit…One of those land mines just exploded: John Bolton.” Anna Fifield reports at the Washington Post.

Around 24 journalists from both Western and Chinese news outlets arrived at the North Korean city of Wonsan yesterday to witness the closure of the Punggye-ri nuclear test site, an indication that the closure will go ahead despite diplomatic wavering. Martin Quinn Pollard reports at Reuters.

A number of South Korean journalists were excluded from the group, following a decision from Pyongyang to cut off high-level contact with Seoul in light of joint U.S.-South Korean military exercises last week. The AP reports.

Experts remain divided over whether the demolition of the nuclear test site will in fact leave it useless, with one commentator expressing that “frankly a nuclear test site can be easily reassembled.” AFPreports.

The U.S.S. Milius – one of the U.S. Navy’s most advanced guided missile destroyers – arrived at the Japanese Naval Base Yokosuka today, in a move aiming to reinforce defences against potential ballistic missile attacks by North Korea, raising the total number of U.S. ships based at Yokosuka to 13. Tim Kelley reports at Reuters.

The White House military office has minted a commemorative coin in advance of the June 12 Singapore summit, canonized on the coin as “peace talks” with “supreme leader” Kim Jong-un. John Borger reports at the Guardian.

Vice President Mike Pence has warned North Korea’s Kim Jong-un not to “play” President Trump should next month’s summit go ahead, claiming in an interview with Fox News that such a maneuver would be a “great mistake” and that there is “no question” that Trump could walk away from the summit. The BBC reports.

“There was some talk about the Libyan model last week, and you know, as the President made clear, this will only end like the Libyan model ended if Kim Jong Un doesn’t make a deal,” Pence remarked yesterday. Sophie Tatum and James Griffiths report at CNN.

The U.S. intelligence community is exploring the possibility of acquiring or developing new means of protecting its communication channels prior to the proposed summit between Trump and Kim, with the former head of the National Security Agency claiming that “North Korea’s cyber operations should be a part of the conversation.” Jenna McLaughlin reports at CNN.

Trump yesterday urged China to maintain a secure border with North Korea, in a message on Twitter. Susan Harvey reports at Reuters.

North Korean state media has struck an increasingly bellicose tone over the past week, issuing three strongly-worded commentaries criticizing Seoul and Washington for carrying out joint military maneuvers. Eric Talmadge reports at the Washington Post.

An internal policy document from May 2017 indicates that the Pentagon has embraced a policy of destroying enemy nuclear missiles before they launch, in an effort that appears to include executing cyberattacks against missile control systems. Spencer Ackerman reports at The Daily Beast, which takes the view that the policy is aimed at North Korea and may serve as a fallback option should the upcoming summit fail.

South Korean ambassador to the United States Cho Yoon Je argues that the current peace process on the Korean Peninsula offers unprecedented opportunities, despite growing skepticism that North Korea is up to old tricks, commenting in the Washington Post.

Moon and Trump are polar opposites, comments Andrew Restuccia at POLITICO, but the importance of the proposed U.S.-North Korean summit to both leaders means that their political fortunes are now intertwined.

IRAN

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo set out the Trump administration’s Iran policy yesterday in a speech that came a few weeks after Trump withdrew the U.S. from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. Michael R. Gordon reports at the Wall Street Journal.

Pompeo laid down a list of 12 demands for a new agreement with Iran, which would require a wholescale change to Iran’s activities in the region and a stop to all uranium enrichment. Julian Borger and Heather Stewart report at the Guardian.

“We will apply unprecedented financial pressure on the Iranian regime,” Pompeo vowed, adding that it will “end up being the strongest sanctions in history when we are complete.” Rebecca Kheel reports at the Hill.

“Every country” would have to participate in the tough new U.S. sanctions against Iran, Pompeo said, warning European leaders – who have taken steps to try and preserve the 2015 deal – that “they know where we stand.” Gardiner Harris reports at the New York Times.

“Iran will never again have carte blanche to dominate the Middle East,” Pompeo said, explaining that the State Department would work with the Defense Department and regional allies to “deter Iranian aggression” and also warning that the “Iranian regime should know that this is just the beginning.” Carol Morello reports at the Washington Post.

“Who are you to decide for Iran and the world?” the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said yesterday in response to Pompeo’s demands, according to Iran’s I.L.N.A. news agency, while Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif denounced Washington’s “sham” diplomatic efforts. Al Jazeera reports.

The E.U. foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini also criticized the U.S. for failing to recognize that there was “no alternative” to the 2015 agreement. The BBC reports.

“The people of Iran … will deliver a strong punch to the mouth of the American Secretary of State and anyone who backs them,” the senior Iranian military commander Ismail Kowsari said today, denouncing the U.S. for its demand for Iran to limit the range of its ballistic missiles. Reuters reports.

The U.A.E.’s Ministry of State for Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash, welcomed Pompeo’s speech in a message on Twitter, saying that it was “the correct path” to unite efforts against Iranian “incursions and expansionism.” Reuters reports.

 “We are going to take steps to address Iran’s malign influence in the region,” the Defense Department spokesperson Rob Manning told reporters yesterday after Pompeo delivered his speech, suggesting a more aggressive military posture toward Tehran. Ellen Mitchell reports at the Hill.

Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that he would meet with Pompeo tomorrow to discuss the U.S. approach to Iran’s nuclear program, saying that Germany does not “see any better alternative at present” to the 2015 deal. The AP reports.

The U.S.’ Iran plan has been met with skepticism by analysts, some have called the demands “completely unrealistic,” while others have warned that Pompeo’s speech would be seen as a means to achieve “regime change.” Zaheena Rasheed provides an analysis at Al Jazeera, situating the new U.S. strategy within the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East and recent developments.

The U.S. strategy on Iran “is a wish list built on a pipe dream,” Jon Wolfstahl and Julie Smith write at Foreign Policy, arguing that the Trump administration has no plan to implement the 12 demands.

Tough U.S. sanctions could lead to “an increasingly angry Iranian public” who would force the hand of the mullahs in Iran, the Wall Street Journal editorial board writes, praising Pompeo’s approach for pushing back against Iran’s expansionism in the region.

Pompeo’s “belligerent speech” was not a strategy and may, in fact, lead to outright confrontation. Carol Giacomo writes at the New York Times.

The Trump administration’s strategy left many questions unanswered, he did not explain how the U.S. would work with Europe, did not mention Russia or China – who are both signatories to the 2015 deal – and did not set out how the U.S. could achieve its goals on Iran’s regional activities. Josh Rogin writes at the Washington Post.

TRUMP-RUSSIA

President Trump and the Department of Justice (D.O.J.) yesterday reached an agreement to expand Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigation of claims of F.B.I. wrongdoing to include “any irregularities” in the Russia investigations, the White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement, following claims by Trump allies and some Republicans that the F.B.I. acted inappropriately in their counterintelligence investigation of links between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia. Katie Bo Williams and Jordan Fabian report at the Hill.

D.O.J. and F.B.I. officials also agreed to review classified information relating to the Russia investigation with the White House chief of staff John Kelly and top lawmakers. Yesterday’s meeting – which was attended by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, F.B.I. Director Christopher Wray, and others – has, at least for now, avoided potential confrontations between the White House, D.O.J. and Republican congressional leaders, Sadie Gurman and Peter Nicholas report at the Wall Street Journal.

The meeting came a day after the D.O.J. asked Horowitz to investigate Trump’s claim that an F.B.I. source infiltrated his presidential campaign for political purposes, the source has been identified as Stefan A. Halper. Matt Zapotosky, Seung Min Kim, Carol D. Leonnig and Devlin Barrett report at the Washington Post.

An explanation of Stefan A. Halper’s connections to the intelligence services is provided by Robert Costa, Carol D. Leonnig and Shane Harris at the Washington Post.

The Trump team have embarked on an aggressive strategy to contain and undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, with the latest attacks on the D.O.J. and F.B.I. resulting in an extraordinary meeting that allowed congressional Republicans to view classified information. Peter Baker explains at the New York Times.

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) yesterday called on the D.O.J. to provide details of communications between Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr and former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. Steele was the author of a dossier that alleged links between the Trump campaign and Russia, Rebecca Morin reports at POLITICO.

Trump “inched further toward breaching an established constraint on executive power” when he made public demands of the D.O.J., Charlie Savage writes at the New York Times, providing an analysis of the president’s actions and comments on the Russia investigations.

The president’s only interest is protecting himself, and Trump and his allies have no qualms undermining institutions in the process. The New York Times editorial board writes.

SYRIA

The Syrian government claimed yesterday that the capital of Damascus and its surrounding suburbs are entirely free of rebel fighters for the first time in seven years, following an agreement from fighters from the Islamic State group to leave the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk and the neighboring town of Hajar al-Aswad. Hwaida Saad reports at the New York Times.

Pro-Syrian government forces have been battling for weeks to recover the two territories, and the outcome leaves President Bashar al-Assad’s administration in its strongest position since the early days of the war. Angus McDowall and Lisa Barrington report at Reuters.

Iranian officials have vowed to stay on in Syria supporting the administration for as long as needed, setting the stage for a potential conflict as Washington prepares to increase pressure on Tehran. Zeina Karam reports at the Washington Post.

Israel used F-35 stealth fighters to strike Iranian positions in Syria earlier this month, the Israeli Air Force commander Maj. Gen. Amikam Norkin said today, explaining that Iran fired 32 rockets at Israel and, in response, Israel was the first country in the world to use F-35 stealth fighters to carry out an “operational attack.” Yaniv Kubovich reports at Haaretz.

U.S.-led airstrikes continue. U.S. and coalition forces carried out 66 airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria and Iraq between May 11 and May 17. [Central Command]

ISRAEL-PALESTINE

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki told reporters yesterday that he had submitted a “referral” for the International Criminal Court to open an investigation into alleged Israeli “crimes” committed against the Palestinian people, including Israel’s settlement policies in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, and the recent violence in the Gaza Strip. Mike Corder reports at the AP.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry dismissed the Palestinian referral as “absurd,” the AP reports.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be careful about tying himself too closely to the Trump administration, Trump’s predecessor may not be willing to embrace Israel in such a partisan way and Israel’s support for the U.S. position may not be in its long-term interests. Shalom Lipner writes at POLITICO Magazine.

YEMEN

Yemeni officials say shells fired early today by the country’s Shi’ite rebels in the central province of Marib have killed at least five civilians, and left at least 20 wounded. Ahmed Al-Haj reports at the Washington Post.

“Iran-backed Houthi launched a Katyusha missile targeting a crowded popular market in the city center” the S.A.B.A. news agency reported. Mohammed Ghobari and Mohamed el Sherif report at Reuters.

CYBERSECURITY, PRIVACY AND TECHNOLOGY

Facebook C.E.O. Mark Zuckerberg will today hold a meeting with European officials in Brussels, where he is expected apologize to Facebook’s European users for the firm’s failure to prevent the misuse of people’s data, and additionally for the spread of fake news during a series of European elections over the past year and a half. Mark Scott reports at POLITICO.

Zuckerberg is expected to say that “whether it’s fake news, foreign interference in elections or developers misusing people’s information, we didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibilities…That was a mistake, and I’m sorry.” The language closely mirrors Zuckerberg’s testimony before Congress last month, reports Sheera Frankel at the New York Times.

The meeting comes at a crucial time for privacy law in Europe and Zuckerberg is likely to face tough questioning. Ivana Kottasová comments at CNN.

Last week’s planned briefing for Congress on election security has been rescheduled for this morning and will now be classified, Morgan Chalfant reports at the Hill.  Top U.S. officials are expected to brief lawmakers behind closed doors on current threats to the election process and efforts by the Department of Homeland Security to assist state officials in securing their digital voting assets from potential hacks.

VENEZUELA

President Trump yesterday called on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro to “restore democracy” to his country after he was re-elected at the weekend in a vote that was widely condemned. Reutersreports.

Trump issued an executive order imposing new sanctions against Venezuela yesterday, Scott Neuman reports at NPR.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza denounced the U.S. sanctions as “madness, barbaric, and in absolute contradiction to international law.” Reuters reports.

OTHER DEVELOPMENTS

The Trump fundraiser Elliot Broidy cultivated relations with the crown princes of Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. and led a secret campaign, along with the U.A.E. political adviser George Nader, to set up a backchannel between the princes and the president in exchange for lucrative contracts from the U.A.E. and Saudi Arabia. Desmond Butler and Tom LoBianco reveal at the AP.

At least 14 police officers have been killed by a Taliban attack in Afghanistan’s eastern Ghazni province, Afghan officials said today, which was the latest in a spate of attacks across the country, including in Kandahar and eastern Paktia provinces. The Taliban also issued a statement today warning residents in the capital of Kabul to avoid military and intelligence centers as they planned to attack them, the AP reports.

The worst clashes of the year so far have broken out between Ukrainian forces and separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine, officials said yesterday. The AP reports.

“The United States unequivocally condemns Russia’s occupation on Georgian soil,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said yesterday, referring to the Russian troops still present in the South Ossetia region following the 2008 war. Reuters reports.

President Trump’s use of mobile phones has raised concerns that he may be exposed to hacking or surveillance. Eliana Johnson, Emily Stephenson and Daniel Lippman report at POLITICO.

Vietnam yesterday demanded that China cease militarization of disputed territory in the South China Sea and that it respects Vietnam’s sovereignty, responding to the landing of a Chinese heavy bomber on the Paracel Islands. Reuters reports.

U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres has criticized the Lebanese Shi’ite Hezbollah group for its status as the most heavily armed group in Lebanon, and urged the militant group to halt military activities both domestically and abroad, including in Syria.  Edith M. Lederer reports at the Washington Post.

Mexico’s New Energy Model: The Evolving Global Energy System

No industry is as essential to the human condition as energy. It fuels our cars, lights our homes, and powers our businesses. The enterprise of creating and maintaining a durable energy system—the collective means by which society generates and distributes vital energy resources—has been around for generations. But longevity is not the same as constancy, and energy analysts have taken on the dual task of defining the status quo of the energy system as well as projecting its potential evolution.

Mexico’s Renewable Energy Future

As the second-largest economy in Latin America with more than 40 million electricity customers, growing demand for power, and significant potential untapped renewable energy resources, Mexico is well positioned to expand its power generation from renewables. The energy reform has created many incentives to facilitate investment in renewables. However, a number of challenges remain.

Opinion | Trump v. the Department of Justice

mikenova shared this story .

As the old saying goes, if the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If both the facts and the law are against you, pound the table and yell.

Welcome to the central organizing principle of the Trump White House. As the Russia investigation burrows closer to the Oval Office, the president, his staff, his collaborators in Congress and his defenders in the right-wing media are sparing no institution in their quest to undermine it. Look, a mole!

President Trump sank to a new low on Sunday, tweeting, “I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes — and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!”

Putting aside the cartoonish language (“I hereby demand”? Really?), consider the seriousness of the threat posed by a president ordering federal law enforcement officials to investigate the people who are investigating him.

On Monday, Mr. Trump persuaded the Justice Department to ask its inspector general to look into his accusations, hoping that these countercharges make the public forget the broader context of the Russia investigation. So let’s look at what we already know.

First the facts: There was a sophisticated, multiyear conspiracy by Russian government officials and agents, working under direct orders from President Vladimir Putin, to interfere in the 2016 presidential election in support of Donald Trump. The American law enforcement and intelligence communities warned the Trump campaign and asked it to report anything suspicious. The campaign didn’t do this. To the contrary, at least seven Trump campaign officials met with Russians or people linked to Russia, and several seemed eager to accept their help. As the F.B.I. became aware of these contacts, it began to investigate. And yet the bureau went to great lengths to shield this investigation from becoming public before the election, even as James Comey, then the F.B.I. director, spoke openly about the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

These facts aren’t disputed. The intelligence community confirmed Russia’s efforts on Mr. Trump’s behalf in January 2017, and last week Richard Burr, the Republican chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said he saw “no reason to dispute” those findings.

Do these sound like the actions of government officials intent on bringing down a presidential candidate?

What about the law? It is a federal crime to lie to federal authorities, obstruct justice, launder money, fail to register as a foreign agent and conspire with a foreign power to influence the outcome of an election. Top officials in Mr. Trump’s campaign and administration have already been indicted on or pleaded guilty to some of these charges. This is just the start; the special counsel, Robert Mueller, appears to have gathered a great deal more evidence with the help of cooperating witnesses. And we haven’t even talked about Michael Cohen yet.

Meanwhile, Republicans in Congress compound their shame daily, either by standing by in silence or by working actively with the White House and conservative media to help expose the identity of an F.B.I. informant. Was it just a year ago that these same people professed outrage at the supposed “unmasking” of American citizens caught up in duly-authorized surveillance?

This self-interested assault is doing incalculable damage to the integrity of American law enforcement. It’s up to those people who have devoted their lives to the nation and to the rule of law, like Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the F.B.I. director, Christopher Wray — both Republicans and Trump appointees, don’t forget — to stand up to the president and defend these institutions.

One doesn’t have to agree with the particulars of every investigation to see the fundamental difference here: The members of our law enforcement and intelligence communities are trying to protect the country. Donald Trump and his supporters are simply trying to protect Donald Trump.

IG report on Clinton case expected to hit FBI leaders for sitting on emails in 2016

mikenova shared this story .

A highly anticipated report from the Justice Department’s internal watchdog reportedly is expected to hit FBI leaders for moving too slowly to review a batch of Hillary Clinton emails discovered toward the end of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Offering a glimpse at the contents of the closely held inspector general review, The Associated Press cited people familiar with the findings in reporting Monday that the investigation would criticize the bureau for its handling of that incident.

It’s just one piece of the comprehensive report that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has compiled looking into the FBI and DOJ’s conduct during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. The handling of that late-campaign email discovery, though, has long been a key issue for officials on both sides of the aisle.

IG COMPLETES CLINTON CASE REVIEW

Clinton has repeatedly blasted then-FBI Director James Comey for notifying Congress that he was revisiting the email probe less than two weeks before the election, claiming that announcement hurt her campaign in the final leg. But Republicans also want to know why the FBI waited weeks to act on those emails, which were discovered on former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

Some FBI officials, like then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, knew as early as September 2016 of the emails, but the bureau did not obtain a warrant to review them until the following month.

DOJ Inspector General submits draft report on FBI's handling of Clinton email probe; chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reports from Washington.

The IG report, which is examining a broad range of FBI actions during the email investigation, is expected to criticize officials, including Comey, for not moving fast enough to examine the email trove and for a weekslong delay in getting a warrant, sources told the AP.

Clinton supporters say the candidate’s name could have been cleared much faster if the FBI acted on the emails as soon as they knew about them. But Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, a Republican, also pressed the DOJ earlier this year for answers on that timeline.

There are suspicions about whether there was an effort to delay pursuing those Clinton files. The Washington Post first reported in January that Horowitz was investigating whether McCabe wanted to avoid taking action on the laptop findings until after the presidential election.

Horowitz announced last week that the draft report was finished in a letter to members of Congress. He did not say when the results of the review will be officially released to the FBI, DOJ and congressional committees.

But the inspector general said he has provided a draft report to the Department and the FBI, and requested that they review it to identify any information that should be protected from disclosure.

The Department of Justice inspector general has reportedly completed a draft of his report on the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation; Reps. Jim Jordan and Ron DeSantis join Sara Carter on 'Hannity' with reaction.

“We’re all anxiously awaiting this report,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told Fox News’ “Hannity” last week.

For more than a year, Horowitz has been reviewing the FBI and DOJ’s actions related to its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

Horowitz’s investigation has looked at a variety of allegations, including whether it was improper for Comey to make a public announcement about not recommending prosecution over the Clinton email arrangement.

Horowitz’s review has already put McCabe in legal jeopardy. The Justice Department’s internal watchdog sent a criminal referral for McCabe in April to the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington.

That was in response to Horowitz’s finding that McCabe leaked information to the press about the investigation and later lied about it to Comey and federal investigators, prompting Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire him in March.

The report is also expected to criticize two FBI officials who exchanged derogatory text messages about Trump while they worked on the Clinton investigation.

In his book released last month, “A Higher Loyalty,” Comey writes that he learned in early October — probably from McCabe — that Weiner’s laptop might hold a connection to the Clinton email investigation. He said he did not recall the conversation clearly and that it seemed like a “passing comment and the notion that Anthony Weiner’s computer might connect to … Hillary Clinton made no sense to me.”

Comey said it wasn’t until the morning of Oct. 27 when FBI officials asked his permission to seek a warrant for the Clinton emails, having determined that “hundreds of thousands of emails” from Clinton’s personal email domain existed on the computer and that there was no way Weiner would consent to a search of his entire laptop given the legal trouble he was in.

The FBI subsequently obtained a warrant, and though Comey said he was told there was no chance the email review would be done before the election, he announced on Nov. 6 that, “Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”

Documents shown this morning in the continuation of the case brought by a former intelligence specialist against the local office of the federal prosecutor’s office, as well as the testimony of a federal prosecutor, seemed to give force to the allegation that the plaintiff was subject to actions that could be considered retaliation and harassment in their work environment.

Ex-specialist Francisco J. Reyes Caparrós, a veteran with partial disability who currently serves as a lawyer, accuses the federal prosecutor’s office and its leaders of subjecting him to a pattern of hostility and labor discrimination, which included, among other things, that I was prevented from doing so. perform the functions for which he had been hired, discredit him, be subject to an unfounded campaign that he could be a Russian spy, implement disciplinary actions against him, threaten him with negative evaluations, isolate him from other colleagues, and eventually relieve him.

This morning, the plaintiff’s attorney, Bamily Lopez, presented documents to the witness Jaqueline Novas, executive assistant to the head of the federal prosecutor’s office, Rosa Emilia Rodriguez Velez, in which it was shown that at least two prosecutors had not complied with the delivery of Kings. information necessary for his work of compiling statistics, which another supervisor, prosecutor José Capó, had described as deficient in his testimony days ago.

Novas admitted that the information provided was incomplete.

Novas could not explain how they presented a document to question Reyes’ request to leave for a medical appointment at the Veterans Hospital, when the date indicated that the appointment had not yet occurred.

Later she sat down to declare the assistant prosecutor Carmen Márquez, who related several instances in which Reyes collaborated with her, and stressed that her work in all cases was efficient and professional, including a case in which criminal leaders were prosecuted and her life was He saw threatened.

Márquez recounted the controversial episode in which, in a meeting before a hundred people, the prosecutor Rodríguez Vélez referred in a recriminatory way to Reyes as “who does not like anyone and nobody wants him.”

Before the lunch break, Márquez was in the process of reporting having been the victim of reprisals for having supported Reyes and suggesting that he bring a complaint for discrimination against the office.

Prosecutor Márquez currently has a case to be heard in a lawsuit in which she sued the local office of the federal prosecutor for a pattern of revenge and harassment at work. Márquez has already won a lawsuit before the federal prosecutor for labor harassment, and as part of the resolution of that lawsuit a federal judge ordered that he be reinstated in his position.

7 Puerto Rico cops indicted for selling drugs, guns

mikenova shared this story .

Seven police officers in Puerto Rico, including some assigned to drug units, have been charged for trafficking and distributing marijuana and other narcotics, the island’s U.S. attorney’s office announced Monday evening.

“When the officer with a gun and a badge is no different from the trafficker peddling drugs in the street, we all suffer. That is why the U.S. Attorney’s Office and our law enforcement partners are determined to root out corruption, wherever and in whatever forms it may be found,” Rosa Emilia Rodríguez-Vélez, U.S. Attorney for the District of Puerto Rico, said in a statement.

Four indictments reveal charges against seven cops for actions that contradict with their duties to protect and uphold the law.

“Today’s charges represent a grave breach of the oath taken by these sworn officers,” Douglas Leff, the special agent in charge of the FBI in San Juan, said.

The first indictment states each of the four officers assigned to the Caguas Drug Unit possessed pot with intent to distribute and also carried a firearm while committing that crime. Each person could face up to five years in prison for the drug charge and possible life for the firearm violation.

Another officer was listed in a second indictment for possessing detectable amounts of weed with intent to distribute near Vega Baja, Puerto Rico.

A third indictment shows an officer tried to distribute small amounts of Tramadol — a Schedule IV controlled substance — and carried a gun while doing so. He was also charged with attempting to sell within 1,000 feet of a school. He could spend up to two decades in jail for the drug charge and life behind bars for the firearm offense.

The final indictment charged another cop with selling a gun and ammunition to a prohibited person, in his case a felon. He could be sentenced to 10 years in prison if convicted.

“I warned him that he is preparing for what was coming”

The testimony of a prosecutor, as well as several documents shown in the continuation of the case brought by former intelligence specialist Francisco J. Reyes Caparros against the local office of the federal prosecutor, seemed to support the claim of the complainant that he was subjected to reprisals and harassment in your work environment. 

During her testimony, assistant prosecutor Carmen Marquez repeatedly stated that on several occasions she had to interact with Reyes Caparros as part of her job and had carried out her work diligently and professionally. 

Márquez said Reyes Caparrós assisted him at a time when he was under threat for 2010, when he was involved in a case related to a criminal organization.

She stated that the main witness in the case was murdered and when she asked to go to the funeral she did not receive support from her superiors, but from Reyes Caparrós, who was then also in charge of security matters. 

“I wanted to pay my respects because she was brave, I had two children, and his parents were there,” said Marquez.

I have added that the head of the local office of the federal prosecutor, Rosa Emilia Rodriguez Velez, and the second in command at the time, prosecutor Maria Dominguez, told him not to go to the funeral.

“Francisco (Reyes) understood the situation. He offered to help me and worked diligently to offer security, “he said.

The prosecutor said he saw the deterioration of Reyes Caparrós’ relationship with his superiors, from the “circle of friends” with offices on the 16th floor, to “falling out of favor” and stopping in a small office next to the elevators two floors below. .

Márquez stressed the controversial episode in which, in a meeting before a hundred people, the prosecutor Rodríguez Vélez referred in a recriminatory way to Reyes Caparrós as “who does not like anyone and nobody wants him”.

She said that after the incident, Reyes Caparrós asked her to talk and eventually she told him that she believed she had a basis to complain about labor discrimination, “and I warned her that she is preparing for what was coming.”

Márquez spoke again with Reyes Caparrós after other incidents, and suggested he continue with his complaint for discrimination, in which he would serve as a witness.

Both received warnings and Reyes Caparrós was transferred to another office.

It should be noted that the prosecutor Márquez currently has a case to be seen in a lawsuit in which she sued the local office of the federal prosecutor for a pattern of revenge and harassment at work.

Márquez won a lawsuit before the federal prosecutors for labor harassment, and as part of the resolution of that lawsuit a federal judge ordered that he be reinstated in his position.

In fact, Marquez’s testimony was repeatedly interrupted by Judge Joseph Laplante, who became exasperated while reiterating to the plaintiff’s attorney, Bamily López, that “this is the case of Mr. Reyes, not Mrs. Márquez.” , and underlined that terms had been agreed for the testimonies of Márquez and Nelson Pérez Sosa, a former appeals supervisor who also takes a case for discrimination against the federal prosecutor’s office and is expected to testify in this case.

In turn, the attorney for the federal prosecutor, Susan M. Poswistilo, tried to show that Márquez’s actions responded to the fact that she was a friend of Reyes Caparrós and wanted to promote complaints about discrimination against the office.

Márquez answered that they were not friends, but that he was a person known as a result of labor relations.

Before the testimony of Marquez, in his final statements the witness Jaqueline Novas, who is executive assistant to Rodriguez Velez, in response to questions from Lopez admitted that several documents showed that at least two prosecutors had not complied with providing Reyes Caparrós with information necessary for his work. of compiling statistics, which another supervisor, prosecutor José Capó, had described as deficient in his testimony days ago.

At the end of the day, María Domínguez sat down to testify, today retired but by then second in command of the federal prosecutor’s office. 

Dominguez answered Lopez’s questions vaguely, claiming not to remember details.

However, when summarizing the subject of an FBI investigation in August 2013, with the intention of Reyes Caparrós to accept a trip with expenses paid to Russia, Domínguez admitted that he had not seen the invitation, although by then it was already of the investigation and had even talked about possible espionage.

Agentes del Negociado Federal de Investigaciones (FBI por sus siglas en inglés) diligencian siete órdenes desde la madrugada del lunes para arrestar a varios agentes de la Policía por cargos de corrupción.

“Estamos ejecutando siete órdenes de arresto contra unos policías por cargos de corrupción”, confirmó el portavoz del FBI en la isla, Carlos Osorio en entrevista radial (WKAQ).

Detalló que los arrestos se llevan a cabo en varios pueblos como Aguas Buenas, Vega Baja, Caguas, Camuy y Bayamón.

“Te voy a dar un ejemplo. Confiscaban dinero, drogas o armas a algún individuo y en vez de entregarlos, solamente entregaban parte y lo demás lo vendían o hacían cualquier otra cosa con eso”, relató Osorio.

La mayoría de los agentes son arrestados por esta modalidad, mientras que algunos fueron detenidos por violación de derechos civiles.

Cerca de las 6:00 de la mañana faltaban dos agentes por arrestar, según dijo Osorio.

La Fiscalía Federal emitirá un comunicado de prensa para ampliar los detalles. Los detenidos serán llevados al Edificio Federal en Hato Rey.

WIPR: Comisionado de la Policía reacciona a arrestos federales de agentes

El comisionado interino del Negociado de la Policía de Puerto Rico Henry Escalera, dijo el lunes que el arresto de siete policías por parte del Negociado Federal de Investigaciones (FBI, por sus siglas en inglés) no debe afectar la imagen del cuerpo policíaco.

“El Negociado de la Policía de Puerto Rico condena cualquier acto de corrupción o cualquier ejecutoria que sea contraría a los postulados que juramentaron los oficiales al unirse a nuestro Negociado. Los actos que no representan lo que es el trabajo responsable y respetable de un oficial del orden público deben ser denunciados y procesados por las autoridades. Las acciones de estos individuos de ninguna manera debe manchar la labor responsable de todos los miembros de la Uniformada”, dijo Escalera en declaraciones escritas.

Aseguró que el Negociado encamina un proceso de Reforma Sostenible con el fin de erradicar este tipo de conducta y mejorar la gestión policiaca.

Bernard Lewis, Influential Scholar of Islam, Is Dead at 101

mikenova shared this story .

“One had to get to the heart of the matter in the Middle East,” he said.

Mr. Lewis had long propounded his diagnosis of a sick Arab society. In a landmark article in The Atlantic in 1990, “ The Roots of Muslim Rage,” he used the phrase “clash of civilizations” to describe what he saw as inevitable friction between the Islamic world and the modern West. (The political scientist Samuel P. Huntington borrowed the phrase in an influential article of his own in 1993, crediting Mr. Lewis.)

In his article, Mr. Lewis wrote: “Islam has brought comfort and peace of mind to countless millions of men and women. It has given dignity and meaning to drab and impoverished lives. It has taught people of different races to live in brotherhood and people of different creeds to live side by side in reasonable tolerance. It inspired a great civilization in which others besides Muslims lived creative and useful lives and which, by its achievement, enriched the whole world.

“But Islam,” he continued, “like other religions, has also known periods when it inspired in some of its followers a mood of hatred and violence. It is our misfortune that part, though by no means all or even most, of the Muslim world is now going through such a period, and that much, though again not all, of that hatred is directed against us.”

He asserted that Islamic fundamentalism was at war against both secularism and modernism, as represented by the West. Fundamentalists, he wrote, had “given an aim and a form to the otherwise aimless and formless resentment and anger of the Muslim masses at the forces that have devalued their traditional values and loyalties and, in the final analysis, robbed them of their beliefs, their aspirations, their dignity, and to an increasing extent even their livelihood.”

In a speech in 2006, Mr. Cheney noted that in the 1970s, before the Iranian revolution, Mr. Lewis had “studied the writings of an obscure cleric named Khomeini and saw the seeds of a movement that would deliver theocratic despotism.” Supporters of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini overthrew Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in 1979.

Critics of Mr. Lewis said he treated Western imperialism, American interventions and Israeli displacement of Palestinians as consequences of the region’s political failures and social backwardness rather than as contributors to them. The political scientist Alan Wolfe called Mr. Lewis’s positions on Islam “belligerent.” The Islamic historian Richard Bulliet suggested that Mr. Lewis looked down on modern Arabs.

“He doesn’t respect them,” Mr. Bulliet said in an interview with Washington Monthly. “He considers them to be good and worthy only to the degree they follow a Western path.”
