    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia has granted U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden permanent residency rights, his lawyer said on Thursday, a step towards Russian citizenship if he wants it. Snowden, 37, fled the United States and was given asylum in Russia after leaking secret files in 2013 that revealed vast domestic and international surveillance operations carried out by the U.S. National Security Agency where he was a contractor. U.S. authorities have for years wanted Snowden returned to the United States to face a criminal trial on espionage charges brought in 2013. “His (Russian) residency permit was expiring and we asked to extend...

    Remarks as Prepared for DeliveryGood morning, the Department of Justice is pleased to once again host the National Law Enforcement Training on Child Exploitation. Child exploitation is one of the most horrendous crimes affecting the most vulnerable members of society.  As law enforcement officials, we have a duty to protect our children from these abuses, both in the physical and online worlds.  Ongoing training on the newest forms of child exploitation is an important part of that duty.  I thank all of you for your commitment and your contribution to this important effort. This year’s training includes nearly 100 virtual workshops...

    I tend to find myself in agreement with the Tom Fitton parts of this interview. Considering everything that is known by intelligence people how did Joe Biden pass his recent classified intelligence background check? Oh wait, yes, the FBI is in charge of those screenings. That would be the same FBI that has been in possession of the Hunter Biden laptop since December 2019. Please ignore these pesky little details…
  • Justice Department charges Google with illegally maintaining search monopoly

    The Hill ^ | 10 20 2020 | Chris Mills Rodrigo
    The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Tuesday charged Google with illegally maintaining a monopoly on search and search advertising, teeing off a legal battle likely to take years and send shockwaves across Silicon Valley. The lawsuit, filed in District of Columbia federal court, is the result of a year-long investigation into concentrations of economic power in the online economy. The DOJ argues that Google has entered into exclusionary contracts with phone makers to preload its search engine onto devices using Alphabet’s Android operating system. Those contracts have allowed Google to maintain a monopoly while stifling competition and innovation, the suit...

    The Verge ^ | Oct 20, 2020, 8:33am EDT | By Russell Brandom
    Attorney General William Barr is set to file suit against Google today for illegal monopolization of the search and ad markets, kicking off one of the largest antitrust cases in US history. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the case will focus on search and search-focused advertising, rather than the company’s broader targeted ad business. According to the Journal’s sources, the Justice Department will allege that Google “is maintaining its status as gatekeeper to the internet through an unlawful web of exclusionary and interlocking business agreements that shut out competitors.” Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen has announced a...
  • China warns it will take Americans hostage if DOJ doesn’t drop charges against researchers

    Beijing is threatening to take Americans in China hostage if the Department of Justice doesn’t drop its prosecution of several Chinese research scientists arrested on U.S. soil this year, according to a report on Saturday. Chinese government officials have repeatedly warned their U.S. counterparts that Americans in China face being detained if its demands are not met, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources familiar with the matter. The drastic action — dubbed “hostage diplomacy” — would be in retaliation for the arrests of at least five Chinese military-affiliated scholars visiting American universities to conduct research. The scientists were charged...

    An annual DOJ report finds that for Fiscal Year 2019, 94 percent of foreign nationals in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) were illegal aliens, while 70 percent in BOP custody and 39 percent in USMS custody were convicted for crimes unrelated to their immigration violations. By the end of Fiscal Year 2019, the DOJ report states, more than 51,000 foreign nationals were in federal prison — nearly 27,500 of which were in BOP custody and 23,580 in USMS custody. Broken down, more than 53 percent of foreign nationals in federal prison...

    After 36 years, I’m fleeing what was the U.S. Department of Justice — where I proudly served 19 different attorneys general and six different presidents. For the last three-plus decades, I have respected our leadership regardless of whether we were led by a Republican or a Democrat. I always believed the department’s past leaders were dedicated to the rule of law and the guiding principle that justice is blind. That is a bygone era, but it should not be forgotten. Maybe I should’ve seen this coming, but like many of my colleagues, I fervently hoped that Attorney General William Barr’s...

    The Delaware computer repair man who revealed Hunter and Joe Biden’s email dealings with a Burisma executive told reporters that the FBI had asked him to stay quiet about his acquisition of Hunter Biden’s laptop after they recovered the device through federal subpoena. John Paul Mac Isaac owns a Delaware Mac computer repair store. He came into possession of Hunter Biden’s water-damaged laptop in 2019. When the younger Biden never returned to his store to pay for the repairs Isaac carried out on the device, the Mac legally became the property of Isaac under the terms of the repair agreement...

    Today, the Justice Department announced it has charged more than 14,200 defendants with firearms-related crimes during Fiscal Year (FY) 2020, despite the challenges of COVID-19 and its impact on the criminal justice process.These cases have been a department priority since November 2019 when Attorney General William P. Barr announced his commitment to investigating, prosecuting, and combatting gun crimes as a critical part of the department’s anti-violent crime strategy.  These firearms-related charges are the result of the critical law enforcement partnership between U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), led by Acting Director Regina...

    President Trump publicly pressured the Justice Department on Friday to move against his political adversaries and complained that Attorney General William P. Barr is not doing enough to deliver results of a probe into how the Obama administration investigated possible collusion between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign. The delayed report is “a disgrace,” and Trump’s 2016 Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, should be jailed, Trump said in a rambling radio interview, one day after he argued on Twitter that his current Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, is a criminal who should be barred from running...... Administration officials have expressed frustration in...

    Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Wednesday said he had approved the release of almost 1,000 pages of materials to the Justice Department as part of an investigation of the FBI’s probe of Russian election interference in 2016.... On Tuesday, Ratcliffe declassified a heavily redacted set of notes written by Brennan that appear to show he briefed President Barack Obama in 2016 on intelligence the U.S. had obtained from Russian sources, indicating that Hillary Clinton had approved a plan to try to tie the hacking of Democratic emails by Russia to the Trump campaign.

    Joe Biden is now the subject of an active federal criminal investigation into his role in the CI probe directed at Trump’s 2016 campaign. Recall, Joe Biden was in a January 5, 2017 secret Oval Office meeting discussing General Flynn’s phone calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak with Obama, Yates, Comey, Rice and Brennan and 7 days later he sought to unmask Flynn. Then-Vice President Joe Biden sought to unmask General Flynn on January 12, 2017 — the same day David Ignatius published his WaPo article about Flynn’s communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The criminal investigation into Biden also includes...

    The U.S. Department of Justice on Monday officially designated three major U.S. cities as “anarchist jurisdictions” that allow “anarchy, violence, and destruction.” The DOJ included New York City, N.Y., Portland, Ore., and Seattle, Wash. on a newly established list created after President Donald Trump ordered identification and review of federally-funded cities allowing destructive rioting. The order came in a Sept. 2 memo entitled, “Memorandum on Reviewing Funding to State and Local Government Recipients That Are Permitting Anarchy, Violence, and Destruction in American Cities.” Trump’s memo had ordered Attorney General Bill Barr to “publish on the Department of Justice website a...

    The Justice Department is expected to bring an antitrust action against Google in coming weeks, focusing on its dominance in online search and whether it was used to stifle competition and hurt consumers, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press Thursday. The department also is examining Google’s online advertising practices, said the person, who could not discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Antitrust officials at the department briefed state attorneys general Thursday on the planned action against Google, seeking support from states across the country that share concerns about Google’s conduct.

    Senator Rand Paul confirmed Wednesday his plans to send the recently released Congressional probe into Hunter Biden to the Department of Justice for a “criminal referral” against the Democratic presidential nominee’s son. “I think riding on Air Force Two and doing business is illegal. I think that is against the law, and probably a felony. I think it’s illegal to take money from a Russian politician’s wife, $3.5 million. Was it reported accurately? I think the only way to determine the actual legality of this is to have it referred to the Department of Justice. So, I’m going to send...
