  • Declassified memos show FBI illegally shared spy data on Americans with private parties

    05/25/2017 5:57:56 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 51 replies
    For instance, a ruling declassified this month by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) chronicles nearly 10 pages listing hundreds of violations of the FBI’s privacy-protecting minimization rules that occurred on Comey’s watch. The behavior the FBI admitted to a FISA judge just last month ranged from illegally sharing raw intelligence with unauthorized third parties to accessing intercepted attorney-client privileged communications without proper oversight the bureau promised was in place years ago.

    "The Abedin emails include a mid-August 2009, email exchange in which Band urges Abedin to follow up on a request from Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy to set up a meeting with then-Ambassador to Panama Barbara Stephenson on behalf of lobbyist Amb. Otto Reich, President Reagan’s ambassador to Venezuela who maintained high-level government positions during the tenure of both President George H.W. Bush and President George Bush. In early September, Ruddy then was contacted by State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, Roberta S. Jacobson, at the behest of Band and Abedin, in reference to Ruddy’s...

    CNN anchor Anderson Cooper weighed in on Kathy Griffin’s now-famous photograph in which she posed with a fake, bloodied, decapitated head of President Donald Trump, saying the photo was “disgusting” and “inappropriate.” “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in,” the Anderson Cooper 360 host wrote on his Twitter account Tuesday evening. “It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.” Cooper and Griffin have co-hosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live since 2007. CNN said in a statement Tuesday that it was “evaluating” Griffin’s future role in the broadcast, but said it had not yet...

    <p>CNN host Anderson Cooper apologized for a "crude" remark directed at President Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord during his show on Friday, calling his comment "unprofessional."</p> <p>During a segment on AC360, Cooper verbally sparred with Lord, a CNN political commentator, over revelations that Trump reportedly told Russian officials that former FBI Director James Comey is a "nut job" who was adding pressure to the ongoing investigation of possible interference in the 2016 election. Clearly frustrated with Lord's response to the matter, Cooper interrupted the conservative pundit and interjected with a not-so-subtle jab.</p>

    This week, the Media Research Center posted a study of one CNN day showing that the network is obsessed with President Trump and the overwhelming majority of CNN’s experts opining on Trump are highly negative. CNN’s rare allowance of pro-Trump voices often come from commentators they pay to defend Trump. So why insult them when that’s what you pay them to do? On his primetime show AC360 Friday night, Anderson Cooper interrupted one of Jeffrey Lord's defenses of Trump -- saying he doesn't care what Trump tells the Russians -- by saying "if he took a dump on his desk, you...

    Then there is Teneo Holdings, a global consulting firm with deep Clinton connections. Teneo serves as a kind of private-enterprise satellite to Clinton Inc. Doug Band, Mr. Clinton’s right-hand man for many years, is a Teneo founder. Huma Abedin, Mrs. Clinton’s right-hand woman for many years, was a senior advisor to Teneo at the same time she held a top position as part of Mrs. Clinton’s inner circle at the State Department. Bill Clinton was both a paid adviser to Teneo and a client. Secretary of State Clinton’s former Economic Envoy to Northern Ireland, Declan Kelly, is a Teneo co-founder...

    CNN anchor Anderson Cooper told late night talk show host Stephen Colbert on Monday that he has muted President Donald Trump on Twitter. Colbert first asked Cooper how his weekend was. Cooper said he had traveled to film a "60 Minutes" report before describing how he does not see the president's tweets anymore. "I've actually muted the president on Twitter," Cooper said. "Don't tell him. I muted him." "What? You can do that?" Colbert asked. "Yeah, you know, when you get annoying people tweeting you, you don't want to delete because then that tells them you've deleted them," Cooper said....

    One of the finalists for the post of solicitor general has withdrawn rather than dip his toe into the toxic stew that Senate Democrats have made of confirmation process. Chuck Cooper said Thursday he no longer wishes to be considered for the post. His withdrawal leaves George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, as the only remaining finalist. The solicitor general represents the government in cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Cooper, CASA [Court Appointed Special Advocates] of Lea County’s much loved Canine Companion, passed away on December 6, 2016 at the age of 9 years after falling ill during the past Thanksgiving holiday. Cooper was “purpose bred” for service work in northern New Mexico and professionally trained by Assistance Dogs of the West in Santa Fe. There, his amazing intuition to human nature was nurtured and he learned the many commands and behaviors that would allow him to excel in his work. He began his work serving Lea County in January 2010. Cooper faithfully served the children of Lea County...

    Setting up more conflict with the Republican-led legislature, new North Carolina Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper on Wednesday announced plans to expand Medicaid through the federal health care overhaul, even though a state law specially prevents such unilateral action. Cooper, the attorney general for the past 16 years before narrowly beating GOP Gov. Pat McCrory in November, announced at a New-Year economic forum that he plans to file paperwork with federal regulators by Friday. Cooper’s action comes in the waning days of the administration of President Barack Obama, who championed the 2010 health care law and wants to protect his legacy,...

    North Carolina legislators will repeal the contentious HB2 law that limited protections for LGBT people and led to an economic backlash, the state’s incoming governor said Monday. Gov.-elect Roy Cooper made the announcement shortly after the Charlotte City Council voted to repeal its own local ordinance enacted in early 2016. It was that ordinance that Republicans blamed for the statewide law. …

    North Carolina’s Republican-dominated legislature took extraordinary steps Thursday to reduce the powers of a Democratic governor-elect, defying raucous protests and threatened legal challenges days before he takes office. GOP lawmakers ignored protesters disrupting House and Senate floor debate and advanced legislation on the second day of their surprise session, which Democrats angrily called a power grab to weaken Roy Cooper once he becomes governor Jan. 1. The state’s attorney general, Cooper beat Republican Gov. Pat McCrory by barely 10,000 votes and vowed to fight back against GOP initiatives of recent years, particularly a law McCrory signed last March limiting LGBT...

    One way to look at the election of Donald Trump is that it is a repudiation of the cult of political correctness that thrives — metastasizes might be a better word — on college and university campuses. One particularly egregious example, the bogus prosecution of Duke University lacrosse players in 2006 and 2007, seems to have had particular reverberations in producing election results this year, a decade later. For a definitive account of the disgraceful behavior of Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong, Duke President Richard Brodhead and dozens of members of the Duke faculty, see KC Johnson and Stuart...

    Formal protests are now being filed in 11 additional counties to challenge potentially fraudulent absentee ballots cast for Roy Cooper and other Democrats, according to Governor Pat McCrory's campaign.A formal protest was filed with the Bladen County Board of Elections to challenge several hundred absentee ballots, alleged to be fraudulent on Tuesday. The initial evidence laid out in the protest suggests a "massive scheme to run an absentee ballot mill involving hundreds of ballots, perpetrated by and through the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC," a political-action committee funded by the N.C.

    The Republican National Committee wants to know why Bill Clinton’s former adviser purchased the house in California that Bill Clinton’s black sheep half-brother Roger lives in. An RNC memo from chief strategist Sean Spicer spells out the mystery: Justin Cooper owns an almost $900,000 home in the lush hills of an upscale Los Angeles suburb. But interestingly enough, he doesn’t live there. Roger Clinton does. Cooper is Bill Clinton’s body man turned wheeler-dealer. He’s gone from making a modest salary working in the White House to setting up an LLC just to buy a home for the president’s brother to...

    While the media started asking critical questions about The Clinton Foundation when Hillary Clinton launched her presidential bid last year, newly published emails show Chelsea Clinton was digging deeper into the foundation's dealings as far back as 2011. According to hacked documents released by WikiLeaks, the former first daughter discovered and shared wide-ranging allegations involving conflict-of-interest concerns, suspected internal cyber spying and other issues. In nearly four-dozen emails from October 2011 to February 2012, Chelsea Clinton’s sometimes-abrasive relationship with her father’s top confidant and other key Clinton aides is on full display.(snip) She claimed an employee witnessed Cooper loading spyware...

    I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, so thought I'd remind one and all. At the second Trump-Clinton debate, Anderson Cooper was a moderator. Trump missed a golden opportunity to really take one to the media. The liberal media is having a ball with Trump's use of the "P" word. But Anderson Cooper had his "P" moment too on live television. I would have loved to see Anderson's face and the media reaction had Trump reminded the national audience that in 2013 during the New Year's Eve countdown in Times Square on CNN, Kathy Griffin ( not Kathy Lee Griffin )...

    CNN anchor Anderson Cooper tried his damnedest to railroad Trump the other night during the debates over the recent 2005 tape where Trump made inappropriate comments towards women. Cooper has been rather vocal in his disgust, blasting Trump for objectifying women. Yet in an ironic twist, every single person that has come out to smear Trump has some video audio, or photographic skeleton hidden in their not so-private-closet. And unfortunately for Cooper, he has quite a little scandal of his own, and in the video below you’ll see his startling hypocrisy unfold.
