Coalition of 44 groups calls for passage of drug pricing bill

Coalition of 44 groups calls for passage of drug pricing bill | 06 Feb 2018 | A coalition of 44 groups is calling on Congress to pass a measure aimed at fighting high drug prices that has gained support from across the political spectrum. The letter is signed by groups that are often directly opposed to each other, such as the conservative group FreedomWorks and the liberal group Families USA. The bill, called the CREATES Act, has bipartisan cosponsors and is designed to increase competition and bring prices down by preventing branded drug companies from using delay tactics to prevent generic competitors from getting onto the market. It is a rare anti-drug pricing measure that has some momentum in Congress, and it could be included as a way to help pay for a coming budget deal.

Arrest warrant upheld in Julian Assange case, new hearing on February 13

Arrest warrant upheld in Julian Assange case, new hearing on February 13 | 06 Feb 2018 | A British judge will rule on February 13 whether WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can have his arrest warrant, for breaching bail conditions, lifted on "public interest grounds." Judge Emma Arbuthnot had earlier rejected a bid by Assange, who is holed up inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, to have an arrest warrant against him dropped on different grounds. According to Assange, only the first technical point of his legal challenge has failed. Judges will hear and decide on the other points on Tuesday afternoon, and if Assange wins any of them, the warrant falls.

Due to the risk of a terrorist attack, the DHS gave the Super Bowl a Level 1 'special event assessment rating', the highest security designation available. The document's most sensitive contents are being withheld, and the report on finding it was was delayed until after the Super Bowl due to security concerns.

'News directly from the CIA': Ex-director Brennan hired by NBC

Mega barf alert *and* gag me with a chainsaw: 'News directly from the CIA': Ex-director Brennan hired by NBC | 05 Feb 2018 | Former CIA Director John Brennan has been hired as a paid contributor by NBC and MSNBC, the media company announced. He led the agency from 2013 to early 2017, under President Barack Obama. Brennan's appointment comes amid the outcry over the memorandum released by House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-California) alleging impropriety by the FBI and DOJ while investigating claims of Russian interference in the 2016 election. Although Brennan previously lied to an NBC journalist about the CIA's attempts to thwart a Senate Intelligence Committee investigation into the agency's use of torture, that incident was apparently no deterrent to his appointment.

Radiation leaks at Fukushima pose a global threat

Radiation leaks at Fukushima pose a global threat | 04 Feb 2018 | Lethal levels of radiation have been detected at Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant, seven years after its destruction by an earthquake and tsunami. The Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), which is responsible for the plant clean-up, made the discovery in a reactor containment vessel last month. The energy firm found eight sieverts per hour of radiation, and 42 units were also detected outside its foundations. A sievert is defined by the International Commission on Radiological Protection as the probability of cancer induction and genetic damage from exposure to a dose of radiation. Experts told Japanese state broadcaster NHK World exposure to that volume of radiation for just an hour could kill, and another warned the leaks could lead to a "global" catastrophe if not tackled properly.

Trump's Lawyers Want Him to Refuse an Interview in Russia Inquiry

Trump's Lawyers Want Him to Refuse an Interview in Russia Inquiry | 05 Feb 2018 | Lawyers for President Trump have advised him against sitting down for a wide-ranging interview with the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to four people briefed on the matter, raising the specter of a monthslong court battle over whether the president must answer questions under oath. His lawyers are concerned that the president could be charged with lying to investigators. Their stance puts them at odds with Mr. Trump, who has said publicly and privately that he is eager to speak with Mr. Mueller as part of the investigation into possible ties between his associates and Russia's [alleged] election interference, and whether he obstructed justice. They are convinced that Mr. Mueller lacks the legal standing to question Mr. Trump about some of the matters he is investigating...

An internal audit by Ernst & Young finds the agency can't account for more than $800 million in construction projects, Politico reported. According to Politico, the audit raises concerns about how the Defense Department handles its $700 billion annual budget. [Oh, no.

Senate documents show FBI trying to suppress release of new Trump dossier info

Senate documents show FBI trying to suppress release of new Trump dossier info | 05 Feb 2018 | Republican senators Charles Grassley (Iowa) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) on Monday released a letter they sent to the FBI asking that ex-British spy Christopher Steele be investigated for possible criminal violations. Steele authored the anti-Trump "dossier" that was full of false or unverified information, provided to the FBI and leaked to the press in 2016. The FBI secretly used the Steele dossier to convince a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to permit one of the most sensitive invasions of privacy against a U.S. citizen: electronic surveillance by the government. Top Obama and Trump officials signed four wiretap applications against Trump adviser Carter Page starting in fall of 2016 -- a month before the presidential election -- relying, in part, on the dossier.

'US Stinger or Soviet Strela': Heat-seeking missile that downed Su-25 jet probed by Moscow | 05 Feb 2018 | A Russian Su-25 warplane was likely shot down by a heat-seeking missile, senior official Vladimir Shamanov said.

The existing evidence clearly indicates that the Russian Su-25 plane, shot down over Syria on Saturday, was hit by a heat-seeking missile, the head of the Russian lower house Defense Committee and former chief of airborne troops said. The exact type of man-portable air-defense (MANPAD) system used, however, could be only determined upon examining the remains of the plane, which crashed in a militant-controlled area.

If the committee approves releasing the Democratic memo, it will be sent to President Trump, who will then have to approve or object to its release. Some committee Republicans have expressed a willingness to declassify the Democratic memo and make it public, but not before it is vetted.

One of them was a large crossbow arrow that someone had stuck into the ground on her front lawn. Another was an incident where someone had broken into her home and turned on the gas line, presumably to kill whoever might be inside with carbon monoxide.

The civil lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, accused Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, of exceeding his legal authority to "grant Mr. Mueller carte blanche to investigate and pursue criminal charges in connection with anything he stumbles across."

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee released the memo Friday. The White House responded by saying the memo "raises serious concerns about the integrity of decisions made at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and the FBI to use the government's most intrusive surveillance tools against American citizens."

New FBI messages reveal agents sought way to evade federal record requirements

New FBI messages reveal agents sought way to evade federal record requirements | 01 Feb 2018 | There's an important but little-noticed subtext in the revelations about alleged FBI misconduct in the investigations into Hillary Clinton's email practices and Donald Trump's Russia associations. It's the light they shine on what has come to be routine obstruction of public records laws by federal officials. The records that federal agencies generate while in our employ aren't owned by faceless bureaucrats or political officials who can choose to withhold or disclose at their discretion and convenience. The records are owned by us: the public. That includes text messages.

The warrant was extended three times, also on the basis of the Steele dossier. [See also: 370598711 House Intelligence Committee Report on FISA Abuses.]
