    A huge range of security exploits, said to be worth over $2m if sold on the black market, have been leaked online.The tools are said to have been created by the US National Security Agency (NSA), and accompanying documents appear to indicate a possible breach of the Swift global banking system.Such a hack could have enabled the US to covertly monitor financial transactions, researchers said.The files were released by Shadow Brokers, a hacking group that has previously leaked malware.If genuine, it represents perhaps the most significant exposure of NSA files since the Edward Snowden leaks in 2013.On Twitter, Mr Snowden...

    There are multiple investigations into whether a foreign power interfered with the 2016 U.S. presidential elections. They began with allegations of Russian meddling, yet have taken a new turn with the revelation that the Obama administration was monitoring the communications of the Trump team, possibly for political reasons. Former national security adviser Susan Rice, responding to a question about whether she had sought to unmask the names of members of the Trump campaign or the Trump transition team, told on MSNBC she had not done so “for political purposes.” Rice claimed later in the interview that any unmasking that she...
  • Hillary Clinton’s astonishing post-State access to top secret docs (March 31, 2017 story)

    04/04/2017 7:56:02 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 56 replies
    Hillary Clinton may have resigned her secretary role at the State Department in 2013 — but her access to top secret and classified information didn’t end then. Under Barack Obama, she was allowed to continue to view highly sensitive intel documents for years — well past her announced run for the presidency in April 2015, according to Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. Why? Toward what possible end? So she could better write her memoir. File this in the “You’ve Got to Be Kidding Me” folder. And it wasn’t just Clinton who kept the power of top secret access. It was six...

    Kinvig on Politics ^ | 4/4/2017 | Cameron Kinvig
    Since last summer, we’ve witnessed a firestorm of nonstop media coverage about alleged Russian meddling in our election process. Questions arose regarding targets of Russian hacking and communications. Certain outlets (incorrectly) reported that Russia went so far as to hack voting machines and/or paper ballots in battleground states. A liberal shibboleth no less impressive than Harvard Professor Laurence Tribe has been quoted by the Washington Post as stating Trump’s presidency has been “rendered illegitimate by treasonous or otherwise unlawful manipulation.” While I completely disagree with Prof. Tribe’s assertions on presidential legitimacy, I think his mention of “treasonous or otherwise unlawful...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | 3/30/2017 | SHANE HARRIS, CAROL E. LEE and JULIAN E. BARNES
    WASHINGTON—Mike Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, has told the Federal Bureau of Investigation and congressional officials investigating the Trump campaign’s potential ties to Russia that he is willing to be interviewed in exchange for a grant of immunity from prosecution, according to officials with knowledge of the matter. As an adviser to Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign, and later one of Mr. Trump’s top aides in the White House, Mr. Flynn was privy to some of the most sensitive foreign-policy deliberations of the new administration and was directly involved in discussions about the possible lifting of sanctions on...

    Devin Nunes Chief of the House Intelligence Committee has put the Committee on hold in their investigations of Trump Transition Team leaks and Russia/Trump probe. So Comey and Rogers are holding up major investigations. It seems this would be embarrassing to Comey, but honestly after just watching his questioning on Capitol Hill on March 20, 2017 by Trey Gowdy, I am questioning the mental health of Comey. In trying to understand who could have briefed President Obama of the Trump surveillance which ended up in two newspapers, Gowdy repeatedly questioned Comey and gave him every chance to tell the truth....

    Former Obama Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Evelyn Farkas, made some stunning admissions during an interview with MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski. While discussing the mad scramble by the Obama administration to collect and preserve intelligence on alleged Russian election hacking before Obama left office, it appears that Farkas accidentally implicated the Obama White House in the surveillance of Trump's campaign staff: {..snip..}

    The Gang of Eight is a colloquial term for a set of eight leaders within the United States Congress who are briefed on classified intelligence matters by the executive branch. Specifically, the Gang of Eight includes the leaders of each of the two parties from both the Senate and House of Representatives, and the chairs and ranking minority members of both the Senate Committee and House Committee for intelligence as set forth by 50 U.S.C. § 413(b). The President of the United States is required by 50 U.S.C. § 413(a)(1) to "ensure that the congressional intelligence committees are kept fully...
  • LEAKED DHS DOCUMENT IS ANOTHER DEMOCRATIC PARTY SCANDAL

    The judges were wrong to base their decisions in part on the leaked document. President Trump had clear constitutional and statutory authority to issue the travel order, and whether the judges, or some anonymous person at DHS, agreed with his judgment is irrelevant. But Leahy skillfully unpacks what happened here. The draft report came from DHS’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis, which was headed by David Grannis, an Obama holdover bureaucrat. Grannis is a partisan Democrat who previously worked as a staffer for Democrats Dianne Feinstein and Jane Harman. A DHS spokesman “would neither confirm nor deny that Grannis was...

    Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) is highly regarded within political circles for his ability to capture the mood of the moment and milk it to his advantage. However, whether Senator Schumer should command respect based upon consistency and willingness to put principles ahead of "politics of the moment" is another matter. This can be seen clearly by the Senator's statements in the current flap over whether a White House official - Karl Rove is the one taking the rap in press allegations -- had permitted disclosure of a CIA agent's name. Don't take my word for it. Let Senator Schumer's...

    Longtime Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward said officials who served under the Obama administration could be facing criminal charges for illegally revealing the names of people working on President Donald Trump’s transition team. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes said on Wednesday that he received new information unrelated to alleged Russian interference, suggesting team members or even Trump himself may have had their identities “unmasked” after communications were intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies during surveillance of foreign individuals.

    FBI Director James Comey declined to say Monday whether his team has launched an investigation into the leaks that led to former White House national security advisor Mike Flynn's ouster. Comey was pressed by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to say whether he could confirm such an investigation is taking place, but Comey said he could not because it might confirm that classified information was leaked. "I can't, but I hope people watching know how seriously we take leaks of classified information," he said during Monday's hearing on Russia's influence on the election. "But I don't want to confirm it by...

    Rep. Trey Gowdy grilled FBI Director James Comey on the several intelligence leaks that made headlines this year. The leaks to the liberal media were meant to damage Trump administration officials. Rep. Gowdy: I thought it was against the law to disseminate classified information. Is it? Director Comey: Oh yes. It’s a serious crime. Gowdy then reminded Comey that the Obama officials who leaked the classified information face up to ten years in prison.

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul over the weekend offered a unique solution to the problem of government leaks, which have plagued President Donald Trump’s administration in its first two months. Speaking on ABC “This Week” Sunday, Paul suggested that to find the source of the leaks, such as the transcripts of conversations Michael Flynn had with Russian officials — which eventually led to his resignation — the Trump administration should conduct lie detector tests. “It is very, very important that whoever released that go to jail because you cannot have members of the intelligence community listening to the most private and...

    Democrat super-lobbyist Tony Podesta was paid $170,000 over a six-month period last year to represent Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank, seeking to end one of the Obama administration’s economic sanctions against that country, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned. Podesta, founder and chairman of the Podesta Group, is listed as a key lobbyist on behalf of Sberbank, according to Senate lobbying disclosure forms. His firm received more than $24 million in fees in 2016, much of it coming from foreign governments, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

    While explaining exactly how the Deep State is attacking Trump Loren DeJonge Schulman describes himself as a “card-carrying former member of America’s vast national security bureaucracy.” (They give cards for that?) He doesn’t like people claiming there is a “Deep State” that’s out to sabotage Donald Trump. He thinks the whole idea of a Deep State is a lurid fantasy that gets people’s hackles up but has no basis in reality.

    Political sabotage will continue to threaten President Trump until he finally acts decisively. Another week passes, another slew of devious political attacks on President Donald J. Trump by political operatives inside the government. Regardless of legalities, politically motivated leaks are being routinely and systematically fed to the hostile news media. The illegal leaking of damaging and/or embarrassing information puts President Trump’s administration perpetually on the defensive, therefore unable to really focus on their agenda and enacting the policies that were promised on the campaign trail. This behavior by government insiders (saboteurs) demonstrates the attitude of those who served in the...
