    An Army officerís promotion is in jeopardy over what some officials fear could be White House retaliation for his role in last yearís impeachment inquiry, raising the possibility that President Trump might again intervene in military affairs, according to officials familiar with the matter. Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who received a Purple Heart for his actions in Iraq and later served as a White House aide on European affairs, is among hundreds of officers selected to be promoted to full colonel this year. Such promotions are typically signed off on by Army and then Pentagon leaders before moving to the...

    A new Democratic-aligned political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former head of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, is planning to deploy technology originally developed to counter Islamic State propaganda in service of a domestic political goal - to combat online efforts to promote President Donald Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic. The group, Defeat Disinfo, will use artificial intelligence and network analysis to map discussion of the president's claims on social media. It will seek to intervene by identifying the most popular counter-narratives and boosting them through a network of more than 3.4 million influencers across...

    The attorney general has suggested that the Justice Department review of the Russia investigation has uncovered ďtroublingĒ findings without going into details. For years, President Trump has complained bitterly about F.B.I. officials who investigated his campaignís ties to Russia, and about the ďrogue bureaucrats of the Deep StateĒ at the intelligence agencies, portraying them as enemies out to delegitimize his presidency. Now, a special Justice Department inquiry investigating those officials has taken on another of Mr. Trumpís irritants: leaks to the news media. Investigators for John H. Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut leading the investigation, have asked witnesses about...

    The Obama holdover heading the Pentagon office reportedly under investigation by the U.S. attorney who is conducting the criminal probe of the TrumpĖRussia investigation was accused of leaking a classified document, in a recent court filing for retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. The connection hasnít been previously reported. According to a Nov. 21 report by independent journalist Sara Carter, U.S. Attorney John Durham is questioning personnel in the Pentagonís Office of Net Assessment (ONA). ONA awarded about $1 million in contracts to FBI informant Stefan Halper, who appears to have played a key role in alleged U.S. intelligence agency spying...

    Former national security adviser John Bolton is willing to defy the White House and testify in the House impeachment inquiry about his alarm at the Ukraine pressure campaign if a federal court clears the way, according to people familiar with his views. Bolton could be a powerful witness for Democrats: Top State Department and national security officials have already testified that he was deeply concerned about efforts by Trump and his allies to push Ukraine to open investigations into the presidentís political rivals while the Trump administration held up military aid to that country. The former national security adviser, who...

    When I was a journalist, I loved Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.ís assertion that the Constitution and the First Amendment are not just about protecting ďfree thought for those who agree with us but freedom for the thought that we hate.Ē But as a government official traveling around the world championing the virtues of free speech, I came to see how our First Amendment standard is an outlier. Even the most sophisticated Arab diplomats that I dealt with did not understand why the First Amendment allows someone to burn a Koran. Why, they asked me, would you ever want to...

    In February 2017, the Washington Postís Miller had the lead byline on a story based on leaks of Trumpís conversations with Australiaís prime minister and Mexicoís president. Six months later, the Post published the entire transcripts of both conversations in another Miller story. It was through such national security correspondents that anti-Trump sources -- intelligence officials -- pushed leaks of classified information and other tidbits intended to damage Trump into the media. There it merged with other anti-Trump currents in nearly every corner of the press, where it blossomed into Russiagate. After a nearly two-year investigation, the special counsel found...

    President Trump on Friday dismissed growing scrutiny over a whistleblower complaint that reportedly raised concerns about a conversation he had with a Ukrainian leader, saying the focus should instead be on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's ties to Ukraine. "It doesn't matter what I discussed, but I'll tell you this, somebody ought to look into Joe Biden's statement," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office during a meeting with the Australian prime minister. Trump said he did not know who the whistleblower is, but derided the complaint as "partisan" and "ridiculous" and asserted that Biden is getting a pass because...

    The whistleblower complaint related to President Trump's discussions with a foreign leader filed by a member of the U.S. intelligence community involves Ukraine, according to The Washington Post. Two sources familiar with the situation told the Post that the conversation that sparked a whistleblower complaint about an "alarming" promise made by Trump during a recent discussion with a foreign leader involved Ukraine. It wasn't reportedly clear whether Trump's conversation that sparked the complaint was specifically with Ukraine's president, but the Post reports that Trump did have a discussion with the newly-elected Ukrainian leader, Volodymyr Zelensky, just weeks before it was...

And the talking point in question was the fake news that Republicans legislators in North Carolina broke rules to vote for a budget override while their Democrat colleagues were nobly attending a 911 ceremony.

    **SNIP** After Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was murdered in 2016, conservative lobbyist Jack Burkman baffled some people when he paid for a private investigation to find the killer. Then in March, Burkman himself became the victim of a mysterious shooting and was hit by an SUV in a parking garage when he was picking up documents from someone he thought was an FBI whistleblower. Using fingerprints, detectives tracked down the suspect and it turned out to be Kevin Doherty, a man who had worked for Burkman on the Seth Rich case.
