Italy Threatens To Close Its Ports As Migrant Situation Spirals Out Of Control

Jacob Bojesson Foreign Correspondent
5:16 PM 06/28/2017

Italy has threatened to close its ports for foreign ships as the migrant situation in the Mediterranean sea has become “unsustainable.”

More than 77,000 migrants have arrived in Italy so far in 2017, an increase of 14 percent compared to 2016. The government is now accusing the European Union of “looking the other way” instead of offering support.

“Italy has reached saturation point,” an unnamed government source told Reuters. “The idea of blocking humanitarian ships flying foreign flags from returning to Italian ports has been discussed.”

Fox News has hired Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) to be a contributor for the cable news channel after the congressman ends his House term early on June 30.

Chaffetz will start his role at Fox on July 1, according to a statement from the network.

"In this role he will offer political analysis across FNC and FOX Business Network’s (FBN) daytime and primetime programming," the network said.

The Utah congressman and head of the House Oversight Committee announced in May that he he would resign from Congress to pursue other opportunities. Shortly after, Washingtonian reported that he'd been telling fellow lawmakers he planned to join Fox News.

Earlier this month, a group of about 800 state Republican delegates voted to advance former Utah lawmaker Chris Herrod to the August primary, where he will face off against Provo Mayor John Curtis and Tanner Ainge, son of Boston Celtics manager Danny Ainge.

The media will do anything to bash Trump — and now they’re hurting

By Michael Goodwin

Donald Trump
EPA



It was many years ago, but the memory lingers of the first time I was embarrassed to be a journalist. It was a steamy summer afternoon and reporters and photographers were shoehorned into a small Manhattan apartment for a civic group’s announcement.

As we waited, a photographer wearing a “Press” card in his battered fedora picked up a bud vase from a table, pulled out the rose and drank the water in one gulp.

The hostess was horrified and shrieked, “What are you doing?” He looked at her as if she were nuts and said simply, “It’s hot in here and I’m thirsty.”

I laugh now at the outlandishness of the photographer’s behavior, but at the time I cringed and wondered: Do I really want to be a journalist and end up like that?

America should be so lucky now. Bad manners are the least of it.

In the sixth month of Donald Trump’s presidency, we are witnessing an unprecedented meltdown of much of the media. Standards have been tossed overboard in a frenzy to bring down the president.

Trump, like all presidents, deserves coverage that is skeptical and tough, but also fair. That’s not what he’s getting.

What started as bias against him has become a cancer that is consuming the best and brightest. In rough biblical justice, media attempts to destroy the president are boomeranging and leaving their reputations in tatters.

He accuses them of publishing fake news, and they respond with such blind hatred that they end up publishing fake news. That’ll show him.

CNN is suffering an especially bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, even trying to make a virtue of its hostility to the president. In doing so, executives conveniently confuse animus with professional skepticism, and cite growing audiences as proof of their good judgment.

The bottom line matters, and there is certainly an audience for hating Trump all the time. But facts and fairness separate major news organizations from any other business looking to make a buck, and a commitment to them creates credibility and public trust.

That’s how CNN sold itself for years — boring but trustworthy. Now it’s boring and untrustworthy.

For all its bravado, the network might be having doubts about its course. Its apology for and retraction of a story connecting a Trump associate to a Russia investment fund, and the resignation of three journalists involved, suggest the network fears it has lost control of its own agenda. It also issued a special edict barring all Russia coverage without approval from top bosses.

U.S. Declares China Among Worst Human Traffickers

Trump administration leaves Obama's upgrades of Cuba, Malaysia intact

June 27, 2017 11:33 am

The United States placed China on a list of nations considered to be the worst human trafficking offenders, a move that could exacerbate tensions with Beijing following an easing of relations in the first few months of the Trump administration.

The public rebuke to China could complicate efforts by the United States to persuade Beijing to help curb North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs. China's downgrade puts the country among the list of the world's worst human rights offenders, including Iran, Syria, and Russia. The Associated Press first reported the move late Monday.

At the same time, the United States did not reverse controversial upgrades during the Obama administration of Cuba and Malaysia from the worst level 3 offenders to the middle rung, a No. 2 rating.

Reports in 2015 that senior officials in Obama's State Department overrode recommendations from career diplomats to raise Malaysia's and Cuba's designations outraged human rights advocates and opponents of the Castro regime at the time.

Several lawmakers took issue with the controversial moves and held hearings, arguing that the decisions were motivated by politics rather than evidence of human trafficking.

The Obama administration just months before had announced its diplomatic thaw with Cuba, and the higher designation for Malaysia meant it could be eligible for inclusion in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a major trade deal between the U.S. and 11 countries. The TPP was a major second-term priority for Obama but Trump withdrew from the trade pact almost immediately upon taking office.

"The government of the People's Republic of China (PRC) does not fully meet the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking and is not making significant efforts to do so; therefore, China was downgraded to Tier 3," the State Department said in a lengthy country-by-country report released Tuesday.

It was the second time in seven years that China was downgraded to the worst designation. The Obama administration placed Beijing at level three in 2013 but upgraded China again from 2014 to 2016.

While China had taken steps to address trafficking, including working with other countries to investigate cases fund awareness campaigns and provide law enforcement data on trafficking convictions, the State Department said it couldn't verify how many cases the government provided were consistent with the international definition of human trafficking.

"Some unverified media and NGOs reports indicated that government complicity in forced labor continued," the report said.

Specifically, the report found that "local officials in Xinjiang coerced Uighur men and women to participate in forced labor in and outside the province," despite the local government announcing in early 2017 that the practice was outlawed.

Additionally, it said the government convicted fewer sex and labor traffickers compared to the previous reporting period.

Authorities continued to repatriate North Koreans without screening the for indicators of trafficking, the report found.

Even though the government requires the screening of all individuals arrested for prostitution, "it's unclear if any were screened, and the government did not report referring any such potential victims to shelters or other care," the report stated.

In addition, Chinese law does not "fully criminalize all forms of trafficking such as the facilitation of prostitution involving children younger than the age of 18, and defines several crimes as human trafficking that do not fit within international law," it said.

Justice Gorsuch Delivers For Conservatives In First Term

Kevin Daley Legal Affairs Reporter
1:38 PM 06/27/2017


At this early juncture of his tenure, Justice Neil Gorsuch has placed his bold, conservative bona fides in plain view, evincing an important shift in the center of gravity among the Court’s five conservatives.

It is difficult to get the full measure of a justice in the space of a few rulings, but Gorsuch’s choices as late leave little doubt as to the shape of his jurisprudence.

Perhaps the most important development of Gorsuch’s early tenure is his repeated alignment with Justice Clarence Thomas, a jurist often alone in concurrence or dissent articulating an originalist vision. This emergent nexus could indicate that the balance of power among the Court’s five conservatives is shifting away from the soft, institutional Toryism of the chief justice, to Thomas’ pure originalism.

Obamas under fire from the left for never ending, sizzling ultra-luxury vacations

By Christopher Wallace

Published June 27, 2017 Fox News



Former President Barack Obama (2nd L), his wife Michelle (3rd L) along with his daughters Sasha (C) and Malia (2nd R) go rafting while on holiday in Bongkasa Village, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia June 26, 2017 in this photo taken by Antara Foto. (Antara Foto/Wira Suryantala/ via REUTERS)


The Democratic base is growing increasingly frustrated with former President Barack Obama’s actions after leaving office, including a seemingly endless tour of millionaire and billionaire luxury retreats, according to Democrats and activists contacted by Fox News.

Ex-presidents, understandably and un-controversially, go on vacations immediately after leaving office. But the level of luxury the Obamas enjoy on their vacations is unprecedented for a modern-day president, say travel experts.

Since leaving office in late January, Obama has visited late actor Marlon Brando’s private island; the Four Seasons in Bali -- where rooms cost upward of $2,000 per night; a Palm Springs estate; Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island; the exclusive Mid Pacific Country Club in Oahu; the 13th-century Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany; and the Rising Sun, Hollywood studio mogul David Geffen’s private yacht.

A Supreme win for Trump and the rule of law

By Post Editorial Board

June 26, 2017 | 8:31pm | Updated



Getty Images


The Supreme Court handed a big victory to President Trump and the rule of law Monday, unanimously striking down over-the-top rulings against his travel ban by two US courts of appeals.

The rulings by Ninth and Fourth Circuit judges had blocked Trump from barring entry to America by people from six majority-Muslim nations (for 90 days) and refugees (for 120 days) while the administration reviewed procedures to vet them.

Most important, the high court plainly doesn’t buy the idea that the travel bans are just efforts to make good on Trump’s talk of a “Muslim ban” early in the 2016 campaign.

The president says this is an effort to prevent terror attacks on US soil, and the courts are obliged to take him at his word — not venture into speculative mind-reading in search of “bias.” Especially since the law and the Constitution grant the chief executive extremely wide discretion over legal entry into the United States.

Dems face identity crisis

VIDEO:



Democrats are grappling with how to keep their progressive base happy while winning over white working-class voters who left the party in the 2016 elections.

Defections by blue-collar voters cost Democrat Hillary Clinton the states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, all of which went to President Trump. It was the first time since 1988 that a GOP presidential candidate had won Michigan or Pennsylvania, and the first time since 1984 in Wisconsin.

The fallout has created an identity crisis for a Democratic Party seeking to find its way forward in the post-Obama era.

A string of House special election losses culminating in Democrat Jon Ossoff’s disappointing defeat in Georgia last week has only intensified the scrutiny and second-guessing of Democratic strategy, to say nothing of the hand-wringing by party activists craving a victory. “I’m not convinced we know what the best thing is for the party right now,” said Democratic strategist Jim Manley. “I’m not convinced we have the answers.”

Three CNN Employees Resign Over Botched Trump-Russia Story

7:28 PM 06/26/2017

Three CNN employees have resigned from the company for their role in pushing a botched Trump-Russia story that claimed a member of the Trump transition team was under investigation.

Reporter Thomas Frank, editor Eric Lichtblau and executive editor Lex Haris all resigned from their positions following a company-wide investigation into the single-sourced story that was quickly debunked, The Washington Post first reported. CNN quickly followed up with a story of their own on the resignations. Lichtblau reportedly oversaw the false story, while Haris headed up CNN’s investigative unit.

“In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” CNN’s coverage quotes a company spokesman as saying.

The retracted story, which relied upon a single unnamed congressional source, claimed that Senate investigators were probing Trump adviser Anthony Scaramucci and whether or not he discussed lifting sanctions during a meeting with a Russia banker just days before Trump’s inauguration. CNN later retracted the story and apologized to Scaramucci. (RELATED: CNN Retracts Story About Trump Adviser Being Under Investigation For Russia Ties)

Lichtblau had recently joined CNN from The New York Times, where he often relied upon unnamed current and former government sources when writing about Russia’s election-related hacking. The botched Scaramucci story was the second botched Trump-Russia story this month in which Lichtblau had played a role.

Earlier this month, CNN was forced to correct and rewrite an article by four writers, including Lichtblau, that relied upon anonymous sources claiming that former FBI director James Comey would refute Trump’s assertion that Comey had assured the president that he was not under FBI investigation. Comey’s testimony confirmed, rather than refuted, Trump’s account.

CNN reportedly imposed new rules on the company’s Russia coverage in the wake of the botched Scaramucci story.

The network has had an oftentimes adversarial relationship with President Trump, who has called CNN “fake news,” “very fake news” and the “Clinton News Network.” (RELATED: CNN Reporter Complains About Being Blackballed After Spending Press Briefing Interrupting Spicer)

Anti-Trump Leak Campaign Damaging U.S. and Allied Operations

U.S. official: Leaks of classified info by former Obama officials endanger American security operations

BY: Adam Kredo
Follow @Kredo0

June 26, 2017 2:51 pm

A new wave of leaks targeting the Trump administration has actively endangered ongoing intelligence and military operations being conducted by the United States and its allies, sparking anger and concern inside and outside the White House, according to multiple conversations with senior U.S. officials intimately familiar with the situation.

The classified leaks, which are being handed to sympathetic journalists by former Obama administration officials who left the government and by holdovers still serving in the Trump administration, have damaged a number of ongoing operations, ranging from American efforts to prevent Russian infiltration of the United States to Israeli efforts against ISIS, sources said.

A recent Washington Post story disclosed classified secrets as part of a larger story about Obama administration cyber efforts against Russia. It was published days after a New York Times story, which revealed details of a secret Israeli cyber operation that Trump is said to have leaked to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

The sensitivity of the material being leaked has heightened criticism both of the former Obama officials who are suspected of unveiling these secrets and of the Trump administration for its seeming inability to stem the disclosures, according to these officials.

TRUMP TRAVEL BAN_ Supreme Court decision shifts momentum in Trump travel ban case

FOX NEWS

SUPREME COURT

Supreme Court decision shifts momentum in Trump travel ban case 

By Barnini Chakraborty

Published June 26, 2017 Fox News



VIDEO: Supreme Court allows partial enforcement of Trump travel ban


After successive rulings by numerous federal courts against President Trump’s controversial travel ban, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday delivered what Trump is touting as a clear victory – allowing most of the policy to be enforced and teeing up a high-stakes court battle for the fall in which the administration may have the upper hand.

Monday’s ruling effectively allows part of Trump’s executive order to go into effect, including a 90-day ban on people entering the United States from six mostly-Muslim countries who “lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States,” such as a spouse, close relative, employer or enrollment in an American university.

It also allows a 120-day ban on all refugees entering the United States to go into effect.

The ruling, though, sets up further litigation in the courts over the coming weeks on just how far the “bona fide” exemptions can go and whether emergency exceptions will be granted.

“I fear that the Court’s remedy will prove unworkable,” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote. “The compromise also will invite a flood of litigation until this case is finally resolved on the merits, as parties and courts struggle to determine what exactly constitutes a ‘bona fide relationship,’ who precisely has a ‘credible claim’ to that relationship, and whether the claimed relationship was formed ‘simply to avoid §2(c)’ of Executive Order No. 13780.”

Reaz Jafri, head of the global immigration practice at Withers Bergman law firm, told Fox News he expects a significant uptick in cases and protests. Jafri advises clients on how to navigate the U.S.’s changes in immigration policies.

“It is still unclear if a national from one of the banned countries will get a visa to visit a family member, participate in a conference, visit schools or come for a job interview,” Jafri said. “Will these be considered bona fide reasons to visit the U.S.? My sense is ‘no’ and the implication is that U.S. businesses, universities and families will be negatively impacted.”

All nine justices agreed in the 13-page decision to take up the case in the fall, setting up a showdown over the legality of the order.

Justices Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito Jr. and Thomas wrote a three-page opinion saying they would have allowed Trump’s travel ban to take effect fully, without regard to a foreign national’s connection to the United States. Their dissent could foreshadow a tough road ahead for opponents of the travel ban.

The justices agreed to hear oral arguments on the merits of the executive order – whether the ban is lawful or exceeds the president’s powers - during the Court's next term, which begins in October.

Though Monday’s decision wasn’t the final word on the travel ban, Trump touted it as “a clear victory for our national security.”

“As president, I cannot allow people into our country who want to do us harm,” he said in a written statement. “I want people who can love the United States and all of its citizens, and who will be hardworking and productive.”

Trump has been incensed since his original executive order, signed on Jan. 27, was partially blocked by a federal court. "What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions can come into U.S.?" Trump tweeted on Feb. 4.

He added on Feb. 11: "Our legal system is broken!"

In early March, Trump issued a revised executive order -- which also had key provisions blocked by federal courts.

Trump has been spoiling for the Supreme Court to take up the case and eager to get it out of the hands of what he sees as more liberal appellate judges.

Four days after signing the original ban, Trump nominated Gorsuch to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated when Antonin Scalia died.

Gorsuch, who has since been confirmed, is largely seen as a conservative, originalist justice in the Scalia mold and could help Trump claim an even more definitive victory after arguments.

Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, called the travel ban unconstitutional, saying, "Courts have repeatedly blocked this indefensible and discriminatory ban. The Supreme Court now has a chance to permanently strike it down."

Fox News Bill Mears' contributed to this report.

The pending House defense bill contains new provisions that would restrict the Pentagon from buying equipment from Chinese or Russian telecommunications firms over cyber attack fears.

A section of the fiscal 2018 defense authorization legislation calls for protecting the security of the nuclear command and control and communications systems from the threat of hacking and cyber attacks from Beijing or Moscow.

If passed into law later this year, the bill specifies the secretary of defense must certify whether the Pentagon is using telecommunications equipment provided by Chinese-military linked companies, Huawei Technologies or the ZTE Corp., or Russian firms.

The bill then states the defense secretary may not approve any contracts for equipment or services from the two firms, as well as any equipment produced in Russia.

The provision was added to the House Armed Services subcommittee on strategic forces portion of the authorization bill by Rep. Mike Rogers (R., Ala.) the subcommittee's chairman.

The subcommittee's portion of the authorization was marked up and approved Thursday.

New York Senator Chuck Schumer admitted Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that Democrats have only themselves to blame for recent losses.

Schumer said the Democratic loss in the GA-06 special election shows that the party needs to embrace a “strong, bold, sharp-edged, and common-sensed economic agenda.”

He bragged about attending a Yankee game and sitting next to a trucker wearing an “I am a deplorable” t-shirt, implying those are the types of voters the Democrat Party needs to appeal to.

“When you lose an election, you don’t blame other people,” Schumer admitted. “You blame yourself.”

Chaffetz: Justice watchdog also looking at Lynch's role in FBI's Clinton email probe

By Joseph Weber

Published June 24, 2017 Fox News



Chaffetz: Investigation into Loretta Lynch a pivotal moment

Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of House oversight committee, said Saturday that the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, in addition to a Senate panel, is looking into whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch tried to squash the FBI’s Hillary Clinton email investigation.

“This is really a pivotal moment,” said Chaffetz on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends," amid three probes into whether President Trump’s presidential team colluded with Russia during the 2016 White House race that have slowed Washington Republicans’ legislative agenda.

Chaffetz said agency Inspector General Michael Horowitz “has been diving into this” and is expected to release a comprehensive report on Lynch and her oversight on the now-closed FBI email investigations in “the first part of next year.”

Horowitz could not be reached Saturday for comment.

House Republicans are hoping to move forward a pair of bills that tackle illegal immigration next week to carry out President Donald Trump's agenda of enforcing federal immigration laws.

One of the bills would boost penalties for deported immigrants that try to re-enter the country and the other would target so-called sanctuary cities, Politico reported.

The former bill is named "Kate's Law" after a young woman named Kate Steinle, who was shot and killed in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant who repeatedly was deported but returned. The latter bill, targeting cities and counties that do not cooperate with federal immigration officials, is called "No Sanctuaries for Criminals Act."

27 high-rises fail fire safety checks after tragic blaze

Britain said 27 high-rise apartment blocks had failed fire safety checks carried out after the deadly Grenfell Tower blaze, including several in north London where residents were forced to evacuate amid chaotic scenes late on Friday.

British officials have conducted tests on some 600 high-rise buildings across England after fire ravaged the Grenfell social tower block in west London on June 14, killing at least 79 people in the capital’s most deadly blaze since World War Two.

The Department for Communities said 27 apartment blocks had failed tests, from London in the southeast to Manchester in the north and Plymouth on the southwest coast.

OPINION

Fantasizing about Trump's assassination, Hollywood shows its moral sickness

by Tom Rogan
| Jun 23, 2017, 1:42 PM

Hollywood. A place where rich, beautiful, and famous people mobilize positive social change.

At least, that's the belief of many Hollywood residents, and former President Barack Obama. The Hollywood elite, Obama said in January, are "helping us to celebrate our triumphs and illustrate our flaws."

Obama was always at home in Hollywood. It was his constant source of emotional support and an exceptional supply of hard cash.

President Trump would likely meet a slightly different reception if he stepped out onto the star-studded streets.

In fact, Trump's Secret Service detail would probably keep a very tight formation around him. After all, many Hollywood celebrities now seek the president's death. They say so openly.

At a top British music festival on Wednesday, Johnny Depp suggested that Trump be invited to attend. The crowd booed. Depp then added, "You've misunderstood me." He continued, "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?"

Depp is just the latest assassination fantasist. As The Wrap reports, their number now includes Larry Wilmore, George Lopez, Marilyn Manson, Madonna, Kathy Griffin, and Snoop Dogg. Others such as Robert De Niro say they would like to attack Trump but not kill him.

Of course, while the Secret Service must investigate all threats against a president, it is unlikely that Depp and co. meant their threats literally. As with Shakespeare in the Park's production of Julius Caesar, this is a "cathartic liberal scream in the doom of Trump's America." Still, fantasizing about the assassination of a president is both arrogant and morally foul.

Arrogant, because it shows ones belief that the rendered will of the electorate is worth less than a solitary perspective. Our Republic does not require our fealty to the president, but it does expect our acceptance of democratic authority.

And morally foul, because we are a democracy. Whatever we think of a particular president, we recognize the office. Each of us is entitled to one vote. To call for the death of an elected president is to embrace the tyranny of one.

To be sure, Depp might claim that he is a jester. And yes, his eyes suggest a proclivity for considerable drug use. But Depp and his fellow fantasists dishonor themselves by worshipping the assassin's creed.

These are no moral servants of America.

That is.

And this type of "democracy" seems to be smeary already.

What do YOU think?

Watters: 'Are the Democrats Sick of Losing Yet?'

* Prof Blasts 'Inhuman' White People, Endorses Idea EMT's Should've Let Scalise Die



In the wake of the Democrats' loss in the Georgia special election, some in the party are calling for a new message and new leadership.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, in particular, has come under fire.

On "The Five" tonight, Jesse Watters said Pelosi fundamentally doesn't understand America or Americans.

He said the Democratic Party, however, isn't self-aware enough to realize that they'll always have an uphill battle if she's the face of the party.

"The whole Democratic message under Pelosi is built on fantasy," Watters said. "I don't know how many 'moral victories' the Democrats are going to be able to stomach before they realize it's time to actually start winning."

Senate panel looking into Lynch’s involvement in Clinton email probe

By Gabby Morrongiello

June 23, 2017 | 2:14pm | Updated



AP


WASHINGTON — A Senate panel is investigating whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch interfered in the FBI probe of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, according to a letter sent to Lynch on Friday.

The letter from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein asked Lynch to detail her involvement in the Justice Department’s investigation of Clinton and her correspondence during the course of it with members of Clinton’s inner circle or Democratic National Committee staffers.

“During your time in the Justice Department, did you ever have communications with [former DNC chairwoman] Rep. [Debbie] Wasserman Schultz, her staff, her associates, or any other current or former DNC officials about the Clinton email investigation?” reads one of six questions included in the letter.

China’s Debt Crackdown Could Get Out of Hand

China’s leaders have a window to tackle risks before the economy slows and the Party leadership conference in the fall. They are taking it.

By Nathaniel Taplin

June 23, 2017 3:53 a.m. ET

China is poised for a once-in-five-years conference this fall, where the next generation of Communist Party leadership will be chosen. Nothing dramatic can happen before that, right?

Wrong. The winter of 2016 and spring of 2017 have already proven to be among the most volatile in memory—particularly in the bond market where yields shot higher, but also in stocks, which felt the heat from the broad regulatory crackdown on debt in April and May. The latest victims are China’s highflying overseas deal makers Anbang, HNA,...

US Virginia Man Charged With Selling Top Secret Documents To Chinese Government

5:10 PM 06/22/2017





A Virginia man has been charged with selling top secret government documents to Chinese spies.

Kevin Mallory, a 60-year-old former State Department diplomatic security agent and former CIA officer, appeared in federal court on Thursday to face charges of gathering or delivering defense information to aid a foreign government and making material false statements.

Mallory, who has worked as a self-employed consultant since leaving government in 2012, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted.

According to the Associated Press, Assistant U.S. Attorney John Gibbs said in court on Thursday that Mallory could face the death penalty “if certain conditions are met.”

Mallory, who lives in Leesburg, Va., is accused of selling documents containing information classified at the “secret” and “top secret” levels to a group of Chinese spies for $25,000.

Federal prosecutors also allege that he lied to FBI agents about the scheme.

In an affidavit, the federal government says that Mallory traveled to Shanghai in March and April and met with a person who is believed to be an agent of China’s intelligence services.

Mallory admitted in a voluntary interview he gave to FBI agents on May 24 that his Chinese contact represented himself as an employee of Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences (SASS), a Chinese think tank that is believed to serve as a front group for Chinese spies.

Mallory told FBI agents that he was first contacted by the spy ring on social media in February. During his trips to Shanghai in March and April, Mallory said he met with his Chinese contact and that person’s boss.

He also acknowledged that he believed that his Chinese contacts “would like to see him obtain a position of access in the U.S. Government,” and to write white papers about U.S. policy issues.

Mallory misled the FBI agents about his use of the communications device, the complaint states.

Mallory said in the May 24 interview that he only sent test messages on the device. But investigators inspected the device and unlocked secure messages which Mallory believed had been erased.

In one May 3 exchange, Mallory told his Chinese contact that he blacked out security classification markings from government documents.

“I had to get it out without the chance of discovery. Unless read in detail, it appeared like a simple note…I have arranged for a USD account in another name. You can send the funds broken into 4 equal payments over 4 consecutive days…When you agree I will send you the bank E.g. instructions,” he wrote, according to the complaint.

In a May 5 message, Mallory wrote to his contact: “your object is to gain information, and my object is to be paid for.”

The communications device also contained a handwritten index describing eight documents, four of which were found stored on the device. Three of those contained classified information, two with top secret information and the other two with secret information.

It is unclear how or when Mallory had obtained the documents or which government agency they came from. His top secret security clearance lapsed when he left government employment in October 2012.

According to the complaint, Mallory lied to Customs and Border Protection agents upon his return from Shanghai on April 21. He claimed on a customs disclosure form that he was not carrying more than $10,000 in cash. But a search of Mallory’s bags revealed $16,500 in currency.

Mallory also asked two former co-workers at an unnamed federal government agency to “help him get in contact with a specific department” at the agency.

The Washington Post reported that two government officials said that Mallory is a former CIA officer and that the people he contacted work for the agency.

That first attempt was unsuccessful, but Mallory followed up with one of the former co-workers and was given a meeting at the agency on May 12.

Mallory told FBI agents that he informed his unnamed audience that he believed he had been in contact with Chinese spies. He also told the person that he had been given a communications device and been trained how to use it. Mallory said that he agreed to meet at a later time with U.S. government employees to examine the communications device.

Mallory went to the May 24 meeting expecting his government contact to be there, but FBI agents were present instead.
