Traces of chemical weapons agent found in shrimp in Sweden

Traces of chemical weapons agent found in shrimp in Sweden | 11 July 2018 | Traces of a chemical warfare agent were found in shrimp caught near the Swedish island of Maseskar, where 28 ships with chemical and other weapons were sunk by the allies after World War II, the Swedish National Water Agency said. The agency urged a complete fishing ban in the area surrounding the island, which is located in the Skagerrak straits linking the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. The substance, identified as diphenylchlorarsine, is likely leaking into the water from decaying bombs aboard the sunken ships, the agency said. Swedish scientists are now warning that traces of the poisonous substance may also be present in Baltic Sea fish, saying that they are planning to expand their research into the matter.

Brett Kavanaugh Is Trump's Pick for Supreme Court

Brett Kavanaugh Is Trump's Pick for Supreme Court | 09 July 2018 | President Trump on Monday selected Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, a politically connected member of Washington's conservative legal establishment, to fill Justice Anthony M.

The nomination of Judge Kavanaugh, 53, a federal appeals court judge, former aide to President [sic] George W. Bush and onetime investigator of President Bill Clinton, was not a huge surprise, given his conservative record, elite credentials and deep ties among the Republican legal groups that have advanced conservatives for the federal bench. Judge Kavanaugh...is a graduate of Yale and Yale Law School. He also impressed Mr. Trump during his interview, and was enthusiastically backed by the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II.

"The lions are our watchers and guardians and they picked the wrong pride and became a meal," reserve owner Nick Fox told the Daily Express.

Memos detail FBI's 'Hurry the F up pressure' to probe Trump campaign

Memos detail FBI's 'Hurry the F up pressure' to probe Trump campaign | 06 July 2018 | Investigators already have unearthed troubling internal [FBI] communications long withheld from public view. We already know from FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok's now-infamous text messages with his fellow agent and reported lover, Lisa Page, that Strzok -- the man driving that Russia collusion investigation -- disdained Donald Trump and expressed willingness to use his law enforcement powers to "stop" the Republican from becoming president. Memos the FBI is producing to the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general and multiple Senate and House committees offer what sources involved in the production, review or investigation describe to me as "damning" or "troubling" evidence. They show Strzok and his counterintelligence team rushing in the fall of 2016 to find "derogatory" information from informants or a "pretext" to accelerate the probe and get a surveillance warrant on figures tied to the future president.
