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

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

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.

THE leaning al-Hadba minaret that has towered over Mosul for 850 years now lies in ruins, demolished by retreating Islamic State militants, but Iraq’s prime minister says the act marks their final defeat in the country’s second city.

“In the early morning, I climbed up to my house roof and was stunned to see the Hadba minaret had gone,” Nashwan, a day-labourer living in Khazraj neighbourhood near the mosque, said by phone. “I felt I had lost a son of mine.”

GOP ATTACK_ Rep. Tom Reed: Scott Pelley should 'never be employed in the media again' after Scalise comments

WASHINGTON EXAMINER

Rep. Tom Reed: Scott Pelley should 'never be employed in the media again' after Scalise comments

by Sean Langille
| Jun 19, 2017, 6:56 PM

Rep. Tom Reed on Monday condemned news anchor Scott Pelley for suggesting House Majority Whip Steve Scalise's shooting might have been "to some degree, self-inflicted."

"For CBS News' Scott Pelley to describe the brutal shooting of Congressman Scalise as 'self- inflicted' was beyond the pale and further proved that the Mainstream Media has completely lost any moral compass to guide its journalistic endeavors," Reed, R-N.Y., said in a statement Monday.

Pelley, who officially ended his tenure as CBS Evening News anchor Friday, said last week, "It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress Wednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted."

"Too many leaders, and political commentators, who set an example for us to follow, have led us into an abyss of violent rhetoric which, it should be no surprise, has led to violence," Pelley added.

Reed called Pelley's commentary "despicable" and says his departure from the anchor chair at the CBS Evening News came a day too late.

"Mr. Pelley should be ashamed of himself for doing the despicable deed of blaming the victim. He should never be employed in the media again by any forum or entity," Reed added.

GOP ATTACK_ Steve Scalise’s condition is improving

News Steve Scalise’s condition is improving

House Speaker Paul Ryan says the congressman grievously injured in last week’s shooting at a Republican baseball practice is “on the road to recovery” but it will take some time.

Ryan made the comments to reporters Wednesday morning. Members of the House were wearing purple-and-gold fleur-de-lis lapel stickers, a familiar symbol in Louisiana — Rep. Steve Scalise’s home state.

The majority whip remains in serious condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center after a gunman opened fire at the practice in Alexandria, Virginia, a week ago.

Scalise, 51, was struck in the hip and the bullet shattered blood vessels, bones and internal organs. Doctors said he had arrived at the hospital Wednesday at imminent risk of death.

State May Pull Hillary’s Security Clearance Over Private Email Server

Richard Pollock
Reporter

8:55 AM 06/21/2017

State Department officials have opened “a formal inquiry” into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server located in her New York residence, and are considering whether she and her aides should lose their security clearances, Fox News reports.

Officials are investigating her use of a private server in the basement of her Chapaqua, New York, mansion to determine if she mishandled classified information during her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat, Fox reported in news the outlet said is confirmed by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley.

Former FBI Director James Comey said in a July 2016 press conference that Clinton and her aides were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” But he did not recommend prosecution of Clinton or any of her aides, a move that generated widespread criticism.

Pelosi takes heat after Dem loss

VIDEO:

Democratic leaders in the House are taking heat after the party’s disappointing special-election defeat in Georgia.

Some lawmakers were quick to blame their leadership for Jon Ossoff’s defeat to Republican Karen Handel, saying the party failed to learn the 2016 lesson that running against President Trump without a positive message of your own is not enough to win elections.

“We’d better take a good, long, strong look in the mirror and realize that the problem is us, it’s the party,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) said Wednesday morning as he left a closed-door meeting of the Democratic Caucus in the Capitol.

Republican win for Karen Handel in Georgia byelection a victory for Donald Trump

Paul McGeough




VIDEO

Washington: The candidate said it was not about Donald Trump, but the President and others made it about Trump and, on a rainy night in Georgia, they got their answer: to the extent that it was a referendum on Trump, he won.

More a political slugfest than a byelection, the candidates and outside political action committees spent more than a record $US50 million ($66 million) in the contest for a well-heeled, well-educated and Fox News friendly pocket of the Atlanta suburbs.

And on the back of an Associated Press declaration that Handel had won by a margin of five points, Trump won.

Uncharacteristically, Trump made the win all about Handel, tweeting late in the evening: "Congratulations to Karen Handel on her big win in Georgia 6th. Fantastic job, we are all very proud of you!"

LEADERS and THE TRUTH_ Obama White House counsel part of early talks on Clinton email release, notes show

FOX NEWS

WHITE HOUSE

Obama White House counsel part of early talks on Clinton email release, notes show

By Catherine Herridge, Pamela K. Browne


Published May 05, 2017 Fox News





The Obama administration’s White House counsel was directly involved in deliberations over the release of Hillary Clinton emails as early as spring 2015, according to handwritten FBI agent notes released by the bureau late Friday.

The notes read: "Pat Kennedy (early May '15) calls interagency MTG (meeting) re: scheduled release by JAN '16, asking quick turnarounds - WH Counsel, CIA, etc...OSD, DNI, NSC and (redacted)"

The notes offer a raw account of the case from the perspective of FBI agents. Much of the content already had been documented in previously released FBI interview summaries, called 302s. The reference to “Counsel,” however, appears to be the earliest confirmation of White House involvement.

From the outset, the White House tried to put distance between itself and the former secretary of state’s personal email controversy. The records were also released to Judicial Watch which sued in federal court.

On March 7, 2015, then-President Barack Obama told CBS News that he learned about Clinton's private server for government business from the media. “The same time everybody else learned it, through news reports,” he said. But an email sent from Clinton aide Cheryl Mills later that day, and published by WikiLeaks, shows she told Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta otherwise: "We need to clean this up. He has emails from her -- they do not say state.gov."

The newly released notes, from an interview with a State Department employee, also show how the department's No. 3 at the time, Patrick Kennedy, tried to convince an FBI agent to change the classification of the Clinton emails, arguing they did not contain sensitive information. This was first reported by Fox News in September 2015, and later described in an FBI summary released last year as a "quid pro quo."

At the time, Kennedy and the State Department denied the charge, which was credible.

The notes also cover how FBI agents were expecting 14 bankers boxes of Clinton emails from her lawyer’s firm Williams & Connolly, but only received 12, as Fox News reported in October. The two boxes have never been accounted for.


Catherine Herridge is an award-winning Chief Intelligence correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC) based in Washington, D.C. She covers intelligence, the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security. Herridge joined FNC in 1996 as a London-based correspondent.

Pamela K. Browne is Senior Executive Producer at the FOX News Channel (FNC) and is Director of Long-Form Series and Specials. Her journalism has been recognized with several awards. Browne first joined FOX in 1997 to launch the news magazine “Fox Files” and later, “War Stories.”

OPINION

US plane manufacturers just won the Paris air show

US plane manufacturers just won the Paris air show


VIDEO:

Every year, the global aircraft industry gathers in Paris. It's a chance to network, discuss new technologies, and make big purchases.

United States manufacturers were the stars of this week's show. They gave us a pathway to creating hundreds of thousands of new manufacturing jobs in the U.S.

On the military front, Lockheed Martin impressed attendees with an F-35 fighter jet display. Following cost overruns and other problems, the F-35 needed to put on a good show. Put simply, prospective purchasers wanted assurance that buying F-35s wouldn't be an expensive waste of their money.

In Monday's display, they got that confidence booster. After all its problems, the F-35 performed exceptionally. It illustrated high-end maneuvering and versatility in rapid speed transitions. Those characteristics give investors confidence that the F-35's dogfighting (close in combat) and close air support (supporting troops on the ground) capabilities are up to par. And for F-35 investors, par is "better than any other fighter on Earth".

The display seems to have paid off. According to Reuters, Lockheed is now close to signing $37 billion in F-35 purchase deals with 11 different nations. That's good news for thousands of U.S. workers who work in the F-35 production line. But it's also good news for U.S. security. As I've noted, for all its delays and struggles, the F-35 affords confidence of air superiority in a prospective conflict with China or Russia.

Still, Lockheed wasn't the only U.S. winner in Paris.

Boeing also won big. Upgrading its latest market forecast, Boeing predicted more than 41,000 new aircraft orders over the next 20 years. If that holds true, it will be worth more than $6 trillion to the U.S. company. The market reflects this: Boeing's stock has risen 8 points in the last week.

FBI To Announce Findings In GOP Baseball Shooting Investigation

Peter Hasson Associate Editor
3:54 PM 06/20/2017

The FBI is holding a press conference Wednesday morning to announce the results of its investigation into last week’s attempted mass assassination of Republican lawmakers and staffers, the agency announced on Tuesday.

FBI Assistant Director in Charge Andrew Vale and Special Agent in Charge Timothy Slater will be joined by Alexandria Police Chief Michael Brown, U.S. Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent in Charge Michael Boxler.

The Daily Caller was the first to report last week that FBI officials discovered a list of Republican lawmakers in James T. Hodgkinson’s possession when he opened fire at a congressional baseball practice, wounding four people including Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise. All six lawmakers on the list were members of the House Freedom Caucus — the most conservative members in the lower chamber. (RELATED: Assassination List Found On James Hodgkinson’s Body)

The FBI also recovered a cell phone and computer from Hodgkinson’s van at the scene, the agency announced last Thursday.

The 66-year-old Hodgkinson, a left-wing Bernie Sanders supporter, frequently espoused angry rhetoric on social media and belonged to anti-Republican groups on Facebook, including one called “Terminate The Republican Party.” The members of that group celebrated Hodgkinson’s attempt at murdering Republican congressmen.

Hodgkinson volunteered on Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ unsuccessful 2016 presidential campaign, leading the socialist Sanders to disavow Hodgkinson’s actions after the shooting.

“I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign. I am sickened by this despicable act,” Sanders said in a prepared statement last Wednesday. “Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.”

Hodgkinson was originally from Illinois but traveled to the nation’s capital in the weeks before the shooting.

His widow, Suzanne Hodgkinson, said last week that she had “no idea” that Hodgkinson was going to carry out the murders. The would-be shooter told his wife that he was going to Washington, D.C. to “work on taxes” and “change the tax brackets,” she said.

GEORGIA TANN'S SHOCKING CRIMES_ This woman stole over 5000 children from the poor to give to the rich

This woman stole over 5000 children from the poor to give to the rich


June 20, 201710:24pm

Nick Poppy, NY Post

BABIES were snatched off the streets by strangers in passing cars. Or taken from daycare centres or church basements where they played.

Or stolen from hospitals, right after birth, passed from doctor to nurse to a uniformed “social worker” — before vanishing in an instant.

Some were dropped into dismal orphanages; others were sent to a new family, their identities wiped, no questions asked. Most would never see their birth parents again.

While it sounds like something out of Dickens or the Brothers Grimm, this happened in the United States in the 20th century. Thousands of times.

It was the dark handiwork of the Memphis branch of the Tennessee Children’s Home Society, a supposedly charitable organisation, led by a woman named Georgia Tann.

Tank was a pied piper without scruple; she was the mastermind behind a black market for white babies (especially blond-haired, blue-eyed ones) that terrorised poor Southern families for almost three decades.

It’s estimated that over 5000 children were stolen by Tann and the society between 1924 and 1950 and that some 500 died at the society’s hands as a result of poor care, disease and, it is suspected, abuse.

Particularly vulnerable were newborns. In 1945 alone, as many as 50 children perished in a dysentery outbreak. The precise figure, like so many terrible details about the society, is not known.

Tann had various means of procuring babies and children for her wealthy customers. She bribed nurses and doctors in birthing wards, who would then tell new parents that their babies had been stillborn. Her organisation was quick to snatch babies born in prisons and mental wards. Older children were grabbed off the street by Tann’s agents and were told their parents had died.

To cover their tracks, the society falsified adoption records and destroyed any trace of these children’s origins.

Lisa Wingate brings these shocking crimes and their long-term emotional impact to light in her affecting new novel, Before We Were Yours, out now. The book tells the story of two families — the wealthy, connected Staffords and the dirt-poor “river gypsy” Fosses.

Though her tale is fictional, it stems from the true, terrible events of the Tennessee tragedy. Tank and her associates would tear apart one family to benefit another, creating wounds not easily healed. The loss would linger, like a phantom limb, for generations.

Tann would tell adoptive parents that the children were “blank slates,” Wingate tells The New York Post .

“What really resonated with me is that they’re not. Foster kids, adopted kids, they’re not blank slates. They’re people. And they have genetic tendencies and ... talents and abilities that are all their own.”

Tann’s background was a privileged one. Born in Hickory, Mississippi, in 1891, her father was a district court judge. One of Judge Tann’s responsibilities was dealing with homeless children who were wards of the state. Georgia’s older brother, Rob Roy Tann, may have been one of these children, adopted by the Tann family.

Tann had designs on a career in the law, but her father deemed that profession too “masculine” for his only daughter. Forced to study music, she taught for a time before finding a job in the nascent field of social work in 1916.

Working as a field agent for the Mississippi Children’s Home-Finding Society in Jackson, she may have gotten a taste for the power that she would later wield over so many families. She began placing poor children in adoptive homes, without the consent of both birth parents.

Child welfare laws weren’t as strict as they are today, allowing Tann to wheel and deal in her role. But Tann was not careful with her work, nor with covering up her trail, and at least one birth parent sued for return of her children.

It seemed Mississippi was not the right market for a baby-resale business. Judge Tann had connections in Memphis, and after a brief foray in Texas his daughter moved there to work for the Tennessee Children’s Home Society in 1924.

Soon after, she launched her adoption scheme. To drum up business, Tann placed advertisements aimed at potential adoptive parents in newspapers.

One featured a photo of smiling, towheaded infants with the caption, “Want a Real, Live Christmas Present?” As if children were dolls or puppies.

Tann presented herself as a kindly matron and pioneer of a new kind of social work — all the while destroying lives and families. Tank was abetted by the famously corrupt political machine in Memphis, headed by E.H. “Boss” Crump.

Crump, also a transplanted Mississippian, was the sometime mayor and leader of politics in the city for much of the first half of the 20th century.

He developed a cozy patronage relationship with Tann — she paid him off and brought the fame of her society to Memphis. He in turn protected her from prying investigations, while city police ignored the complaints of families who’d lost children to Tann and sometimes even helped Tann seize kids.

Tann’s most useful co-conspirator was Camille Kelley, a juvenile-court judge in the city. Like Tann, Kelley pretended to act in the best interests of children. With the stroke of a pen, Kelley would remove parental rights and transfer them to Tann, clearing a path for adoption.

Tank was essentially waging class war. She held to the belief that there were two kinds of people: the poor, whom she viewed as incompetent parents, and the wealthy. She fattened her own coffers in the process.

The big money came from interstate adoptions, especially to New York and LA, for which the agency would charge as much as $5000. Most of that fee was pocketed by Tann, who was given to travelling in chauffeured Packards.

Among the Tennessee Children’s Home Society’s clientele was that paragon of maternal love, Joan Crawford, who adopted her twin daughters Cathy and Cynthia through the organisation in 1947. Mid-century Hollywood power couple June Allyson and Dick Powell used the agency to adopt their daughter, Pamela. Lana Turner, Pearl S. Buck and New York Gov. Herbert Lehman were also clients. And future pro wrestler Ric Flair was among Tann’s abductees.

As word of Tann’s tactics started to spread, even some adoptive parents started to object. But, in many cases, Tann had these people over a barrel — they were complicit in her operation and feared losing their children. Whispers and accusations went nowhere.

For years, she was too prominent, too well connected, for anything to stick.

In the mid-1940s, Tann was diagnosed with uterine cancer and could sense that her adoption racket was beginning to unravel. Boss Crump’s political influence was starting to wane.

Gordon Browning, a Crump enemy, was elected governor in 1948. When rumours of Tann’s baby racket reached his ears, he saw a way to humiliate his political rival. In the final months of Tann’s life, Browning appointed a special investigator to look into her practices. Such was Tann’s remaining influence that the state’s case against her was announced only days before her death, in September 1950.

Even then, the brunt of the accusations against Tann had to do with her pocketing money from a state-funded enterprise, rather than kidnapping.

Georgia Tann was 59 years old when she died at home of cancer. She never had to face the music for her terrible crimes. She left no money to children’s causes, nor to the Tennessee Children’s Home Society. The home was closed two months later.

Word of Tann’s shocking crimes became national news. “Dead Director Blamed in Baby Black Market,” reported the Chicago Tribune. But though Tann had placed children in every state, few attempts were made at the time to connect birth parents with their children.

A version of the Tann story was told in the 1993 made for TV movie Stolen Babies (Mary Tyler Moore starred as the infamous baby-dealer), and a more thorough account of her crimes can be found in the nonfiction book The Baby Thief by journalist Barbara Bisantz Raymond.

Shortly after Tann’s death, her co-conspirator Kelley announced her retirement from her judgeship. Protected by the Crump machine, she, too, avoided prosecution and died in 1955 from a stroke.

Boss Crump preceded Kelley in death by a year. Memphis drivers honour the former mayor by taking Crump Boulevard across town from Route 55 to Route 78.

Today, the legacy of Georgia Tann and the Tennessee Children’s Home Society is a painful and complicated one.

Ironically, an accidental benefit of her work was popularising adoption for parents unable to conceive. Before Tann, adoption in the United States was uncommon, but after she became known, the stigma over the practice was largely lifted.

At the same time, a damaging legal procedure was put in place: Tann championed the practice of closed, secretive adoptions. Adoption records were sealed, and adopted children were barred from learning the identities of their birth parents.

This legislation is still in place in many states. Tellingly, Tennessee was the first state to lift these laws, in 1999.

Meanwhile, the emotional cost of Tann’s decades-long scheme is incalculable. Thousands of families were torn apart; parents never saw their children again and siblings were permanently separated. Lisa Wingate’s novel tells of one such family.

“If you’d invented that story, it would seem so far-fetched that you would think, ‘That could never happen. Not in this country,’” Wingate says. “And yet, it did, and it did for a long time.”

For Wingate, this story “still matters today, because there are still so many kids that need that one advocate, that one place to be, that one person who will step in.” She continues, “we do have to still be watching for things that are not above board or are corrupt, where children are being used for profits of one kind or another. That’s on all of us, as a public.”

Gutfeld: The Left Attacks Scalise’s Politics During His Recovery



June 19, 2017 9:39pm - As seen on The Five


Greg Gutfeld blasted MSNBC host Joy Reid for politicizing the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.)

Reid noted on Twitter that Crystal Griner, the officer who shot "a white man with a violent background" - shooter James Hodgkinson - is black and a lesbian.

"She blamed the race of the shooter, [but] didn't bring up his beliefs," Gutfeld said. Gutfeld said Hodgkinson was a fan of Reid's network.

POLITICS_ EXCLUSIVE: Gingrich On Russian Investigation: ‘The Fix Is In’

EXCLUSIVE: Gingrich On Russian Investigation: ‘The Fix Is In’

Ted Goodman
6:53 PM 06/19/2017

Former Republican Speaker Newt Gingrich is deeply concerned about Robert Mueller’s ability to lead a non-partisan, unbiased investigation, he said in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation

“The fix is in,” Gingrich told TheDCNF. “This is the establishment counter-attacking legally when they lost politically.”

Gingrich is specifically concerned about the fact that Mueller’s ex-law firm, WilmerHale, gave $326,798 to Hillary Clinton in the run up to the 2016 presidential election, compared to the $628 that the firm donated to Trump.

Robert Mueller, a distinguished attorney who served 12 years as FBI director under former president’s George W. Bush and Barack Obama, was appointed to serve as special counsel for the Department of Justice in its investigation of any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.

Since his May 17 appointment by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Mueller has put together a team of lawyers including former prosecutor and WilmerHale partner Jeannie Rhee and former DOJ attorney Andrew Weissmann.

“I love this in terms of transparency, [Rhee’s] job was to defend the Clinton Foundation against Freedom of Information Acts,” Gingrich said. “I mean, you can’t make this stuff up.”

“Another one was repudiated by the Supreme Court, nine to zero in the Arthur Anderson case, where they said that said he had hidden evidence,” Gingrich asserted.

“The same guy did something similar in hiding evidence against Enron, and four people spent a year in jail who were innocent,” Gingrich said, likely referring to Weissmann.

Gingrich slammed Republicans for not doing enough. “Unfortunately, all too many Republicans are sleepwalking and pretending this is all okay,” he told TheDCNF. “And they don’t do any research. They don’t look at, what’s the background to what’s going on here? This is not a fair game. These are people who are out to destroy Trump.”

Gingrich said that when he began digging deeper into Robert Mueller, he discovered some worrisome facts. “You couldn’t make this up if you were doing this for a novel,” Gingrich asserted. ”

“The left is desperate to find a way to defeat Trump,” Gingrich said. “And, they’re desperate– they cannot believe Trump beat them. Therefore, the Russians must have done it.”

Gingrich also asserted that at the Justice Department, among those who were politically active, 97 percent of the donations went to Clinton, compared to Trumps 3 percent.

“So, when you say to me, ‘Do I worry about Mueller as an investigator?’ I think, well, do I worry about a department that’s 97 to 3 [percent], that would pick somebody who’s from a law firm which is 99.81 [percent]? Uh, as a historian, yeah, I’d worry,” Gingrich concluded. “And then you look at who he hired and it gets worse.”

Gingrich spoke to TheDCNF’s Ginni Thomas as part of her Saturday Night “Leaders”series.

Chinese Cash Blunts Europe’s Criticism of Beijing’s Human-Rights Record

Greece’s blockage of EU rebuke shows how China’s investments in bloc’s strapped economies pay off

By Nektaria Stamouli

June 19, 2017 1:06 p.m. ET

ATHENS—Greece’s recent veto of a European Union statement condemning Chinese human-rights violations shows the return Beijing is getting on its multibillion-dollar investments in the bloc’s cash-strapped periphery.

China’s acquisition spree in Western Europe last year raised fears about the commercial costs of losing cutting-edge technologies. Less foreseen was the degree to which Beijing’s investment in poorer parts of Europe...

The comatose college student who was released from a North Korean prison last week died Monday afternoon, his family said.

Otto Warmbier, a 22-year-old University of Virginia undergrad who served 18 months behind bars in the hermit kingdom for alleged anti-state acts, died at 2:20 p.m. at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, according to a family statement obtained by NBC News.

“It would be easy at a moment like this to focus on all that we lost — future time that won’t be spent with a warm, engaging brilliant young man whose curiosity and enthusiasm for life knew no bounds,” his relatives said.

POLITICS_ Trump Administration Moves To Fill Key Roles

Trump Administration Moves To Fill Key Roles

White House Correspondent

The Trump administration has moved rapidly in June to fill key government roles that remain unfilled.

The White House has announced nominations or the intention to nominate individuals to 43 positions requiring Senate confirmation. This includes President Trump’s first wave of U.S. attorney nominations.

The Washington Post and the Partnership for Public Service have been tracking Trump administration nominations for key positions, and their data shows that Trump is still way behind where former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush were at this point in their presidencies.

President Trump has had 42 presidential nominees confirmed, and there are 415 key positions the two organizations have identified that still lack nominees. As of May 20 in his first year in office, former President Obama had 130 appointments confirmed by the Senate, while former President Bush had 60 individuals confirmed.

However, the announcements so far in June show that the administration is picking up the pace. A Saturday story from the Post cited a White House official saying that around 200 people are being vetted daily for senior positions.

The White House has pointed the finger at the lengthy vetting process and obstruction from Democrats for the slow pace at filling top roles.

Some of the nominations announced in June are financier Richard Spencer for secretary of the navy; Brian Allen Benzkowski to serve as an assistant attorney general in the Justice Department’s criminal division; Joseph Otting to be comptroller of the currency; and Kelly Knight Craft to serve as ambassador to Canada.

Positions with no nominee include deputy secretary of state, secretary of the army, and two members of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Trump's Cuba policy changes "very appropriate," says Sen. Rubio

By Matthew Kazin

Published June 18, 2017 Politics FOXBusiness



Sen. Marco Rubio: Trump's Cuba policies are very appropriate


Florida senator weighs in on the president's agenda on 'Sunday Morning Futures' Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday President Trump’s policy changes on America’s relationship with Cuba were “very appropriate,” and explained why the U.S. needs to take a tougher stance when it comes to dealing with the communist country.

“I don’t understand how anyone could argue that we should not have a policy that enriches the Cuban people instead of the Cuban military,” Rubio, R-Fla., told Maria Bartiromo during an interview on “Sunday Morning Futures.”

During a speech in Miami on Friday, President Trump said his administration would be stricter on American tourism to the Caribbean island and that the embargo, in place since 1958, would continue to be enforced. Trump also stressed the importance of making sure investments would flow “directly to the people” in an effort to promote private Cuban businesses.

Rubio, who helped craft the president’s policy, criticized the Obama administration, which restored diplomatic relations with Cuba in 2015, saying it allowed too many concessions, in turn hurting Cuban citizens while benefitting the country’s military.

“Those concessions have allowed the Cuban military, which controls upwards of 50-60 percent of their economy, to enrich itself and to tighten its grip through a monopoly that they control. And we’re reversing that, the president is reversing that,” the Florida senator said.


More on this...

* Trump rolls back Obama-era Cuba policy

* Trump’s Cuba policy could cost U.S. airlines



Under the new policy, which is not a total shift from Obama’s, airlines and cruise lines will still be able to travel to Cuba, though it will be more closely monitored. American (AAL), Delta (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV), United (UAL) and Alaska Airlines (ALK) are the U.S. carriers currently offering flights to Cuba.

“I would much rather have American Airlines flying people into Cuba on regular flights than have them chartering their planes to a company that’s a pro-Castro operating in the United States of America,” Rubio said.

As previously reported by FOX Business, at least one non-profit group said that rolling back travel expansions would hurt U.S. airlines Opens a New Window. that have flights to the island.

Both Rubio and Trump praised each other on Friday, despite fierce rhetoric directed at each other during the race for the GOP nomination, where Trump called the Florida senator “little Marco.”

“This whole relationship thing is overblown. He was a competitor of mine out of 17 people that ran for President,” Rubio said. “President Trump’s success is America’s success … of course I want the president to be successful.”

Alabama Representative Mo Brooks responded to reports that he was on the GOP baseball shooter’s assassination list, addressing the need for congressmen to carry firearms and “be more wary.”

Brooks said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” that he will be introducing legislation this week that would allow congressmen to carry firearms for self-protection when they are not in the Capitol.

“As of right now when we’re in Washington, D.C., once we’re off the Capitol Hill grounds complex we’re still congressmen, senators, we’re still high-profile targets but we have absolutely no way to defend ourselves because of Washington, D.C.’s rather restrictive gun laws,” the Republican congressman explained.

Host Maria Bartiromo asked Brooks about a report by The Daily Caller that said the shooter had an assassination list with his name on it. (EXCLUSIVE: Assassination List Found On James Hodgkinson’s Body)
