These files were downloaded onto Pho’s personal computer and then routinely harvested by Russian intelligence.

Pho may face prison time when he's sentenced on April 6th, but prosecutors “are open to calls for a lighter sentence” given the non-malicious nature of the case. It...

    Michael Hayden, the former director of the CIA and the NSA, has stepped up his criticism of President Trump. According to the former intelligence chief, Trump's attacks on the free media are downright dangerous: [TWEET BY THE GENERAL] The general's tweets were a response to a tweet by former CIA Deputy Director John McLaughlin, who called "the new normal" created by Trump "scary": [TWEET BY MCLAUGHLIN] These tweets by the former spymasters were inspired by an angry Trump tweet in which the president blasted CNN for spreading "fake news" and argued that it's a major problem for the United States...

    Donald Trump's attacks on broadcaster CNN are an "an outrageous assault" on freedom of speech, according to former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director Michael Hayden. “If this is who we are or who we are becoming, I have wasted 40 years of my life,” the former spy chief, who now works as a national security analyst for the broadcaster, said in a Twitter post. General Hayden, who is also a former director of the National Surveillance Agency (NSA), added: "Until now it was not possible for me to conceive of an American President capable of such an outrageous assault on...

    The Washington Standard ^ | 11-23-2017 | Tim Brown
    Thirty-year National Security Agency veteran turned whistleblower Bill Binney has come out and said that the allegations of Russia election meddling are nothing more than propaganda. Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo met with Binney last month at the request of President Donald Trump. The Intercept reported on the meeting on November 7, 2017. Pompeo met on October 24 with William Binney, a former National Security Agency official-turned-whistleblower who co-authored an analysis published by a group of former intelligence officials that challenges the U.S. intelligence community’s official assessment that Russian intelligence was behind last year’s theft of data from DNC computers. Binney and the...

    WASHINGTON — Jake Williams awoke last April in an Orlando, Fla., hotel where he was leading a training session. Checking Twitter, the cybersecurity expert was dismayed to discover that he had been thrust into the middle of one of the worst security debacles ever to befall American intelligence. Mr. Williams had written on his company blog about the Shadow Brokers, a mysterious group that had somehow obtained many of the hacking tools the United States used to spy on other countries. Now the group had replied in an angry screed on Twitter. It identified him — correctly — as a...

    You can expect many links to sources in this report, as I have found it difficult to get straight answers on this subject. For the most part, it has gone unreported by MSM. The only reason I found reference to it at all, is the fact I am following the Russia investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. First of all, I want to start out by listing links to information concerning a finding by a FISA Court judge on the illegal spying by the NSA,FBI, and the Obama Justice Department on the Trump Team. 1.http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/national/national-security/article152947909.html QUOTE The document, signed by...

    What if the government doesn't really deliver for us? What if its failures to protect our lives, liberties and property are glaring? What if nothing changes after these failures? What if the National Security Agency -- the federal government's domestic spying apparatus -- has convinced Congress that it needs to cut constitutional corners in order to spy on as many people in America as possible? What if Congress has bought that argument and passed a statute that put a secret court between the NSA and its appetite for all electronically transmitted data in America? What if that secret court --...

    CIA Director Mike Pompeo still believes Russia was responsible for hacking the Democratic National Committee, the agency said Tuesday amid reports that Pompeo met a skeptic at President Trump’s urging. William Binney, who worked more than three decades at the National Security Agency before stepping down as technical director in 2001, met with Pompeo on Oct. 24 to discuss a July report he co-authored suggesting DNC emails were leaked, rather than hacked. “I thought it was a pretty good hourlong meeting,” Binney told the Washington Examiner.

    Lawmakers expressed bipartisan interest in expanding the role of the National Institute of Technology and Standards according to H.R. 1224 concerning how contracted companies work with federal agencies and departments. Members of the House Subcommittee on Science Oversight met Thursday to discuss a recent revelation of a 2015 security breach involving an NSA contractor and a Russian spyware product. Julio Rivera who is a cybersecruity expert and Editor of Reactionary Times says that the breach that occurred in 2015 was first discovered by Israeli intelligence who then alerted the U.S. However, officials did not ban the software at the time...

    Former CIA Director Leon Panetta said that the Senate Intelligence Committee is going to have to look into the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for funding the controversial Trump dossier during an interview on Thursday. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Panetta how it was possible that neither “the chair of the DNC and the Clinton campaign” knew about payments for the dossier. “Well, it’s obviously something that the Intelligence Committee is going to have to look at,” Panetta said. “You know, knowing presidential campaigns, they’re big operations and somehow the left hand may not know what the right...

    Like the rising of the sun or the changing of the tides, another opportunity for the GOP to right the wrongs of the post-9/11 security state is here again. In less than three months, Section 702 of the 2008 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Amendments Act, which authorizes the National Security Agency’s controversial (and in many instances, unconstitutional) spy programs, is set to expire. The lingering question, however, is whether the GOP is finally ready to close the book on what has been one of the biggest abuses of government power in American history.It is well-known that the GOP has had numerous...

    It was a case of spies watching spies watching spies: Israeli intelligence officers looked on in real time as Russian government hackers searched computers around the world for the code names of American intelligence programs. What gave the Russian hacking, detected more than two years ago, such global reach was its improvised search tool — antivirus software made by a Russian company, Kaspersky Lab, that is used by 400 million people worldwide, including by officials at some two dozen American government agencies. The Israeli officials who had hacked into Kaspersky’s own network alerted the United States to the broad Russian...

    Obama left the country vulnerable to massive Russian hacking. The real story with Russia was not the series of stupid meetings between Trump campaign officials and diplomats who were trying to set them up, playing on Trump’s admiration of Putin. The story that should have been all over the front pages then, and now, is the complete lack of security infrastructure across our government, President Barack Obama’s complete inability to protect the country from cybersecurity threats, and the way Russians were able to easily take advantage of all our vulnerabilities throughout the last eight years to make a series of...

Winner, who has pleaded not guilty, is accused of having anonymously mailed a document to The Intercept relating to a federal investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The NSA report, which was the basis of a story published by The Intercept on June 5, describes efforts by Russian military...

    When Edward Snowden decided he wanted to release details about the NSA's intelligence operations to the public, he reached out to Laura Poitras, a 49-year-old film maker and political activist opposed to the war on terror. As the Washington Post noted on Monday, Poitras had "the odd distinction of sharing a byline in The Washington Post and in London’s Guardian newspaper last week on two blockbuster stories." snip But perhaps it isn't such a mystery why the U.S. government might want to question Poitras if you simply crack open John R. Bruning's 2006 book, The Devil's Sandbox: With the 2nd...
