    President Donald Trump on Thursday granted Attorney General William Barr the authority to declassify information relevant to the investigation into how spying on the Trump campaign started in 2016. Former CIA Director John Brennan appeared on MSNBC's "All in with Chris Hayes" to discuss the decision. According to Brennan, Barr investigating the origins of the Russia probe is "outrageous." "How big a deal do you read the portion of the executive order last night that appears to give [Attorney General William] Barr the unilateral authority to declassify?" Hayes asked. "Well, I see it as a very, very serious and outrageous...

    Former FBI Director James Comey said Thursday that "it sure looks like" President Donald Trump had criminal intent to commit obstruction of justice during special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. At a CNN town hall in Washington, Anderson Cooper asked Comey whether, based on the redacted version of Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, he believed Trump had criminal intent to commit obstruction. "It sure looks like he did, in connection with a couple episodes -- the direction to (former White House counsel) Don McGahn to get the special counsel fired is to my mind a flaming example"...

    Former FBI chief James Comey said in a speech Tuesday evening that he is confused by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s reasoning on charging President Trump with obstruction of justice. Mr. Comey told his audience that while he had “great faith” in Mr. Mueller, the special counsel essentially punted on the matter, neither recommending that Mr. Trump be charged nor exonerating him. “The part that’s confusing is, I can’t quite understand what’s going on with the obstruction stuff,” Mr. Comey told his audience at the Belk Theatre in Charlotte, North Carolina, according to an NBC News report. Instead, Mr. Mueller’s nonrecommendation...

    A GoFundMe page to cover the legal expenses for former Trump attorney Michael Cohen was launched on Wednesday with a goal of raising $500,000. Lanny Davis, Cohen's lawyer, is listed as the administrator of the page, titled the "Michael Cohen Truth Fund." The page had racked up more than $20,000 in donations as of 9:20 a.m. Wednesday. "Michael decided to put his family and his country first. Now Michael needs your financial help — to pay his legal fees," the page description states. The donations will help Cohen "as he goes forward on his journey to tell the truth about...

    Roundly vilified for not entering a Parkland high school during a mass shooting, Broward Deputy Scot Peterson insisted publicly that he believed that gunfire was happening outside on campus — not from inside the building. But internal radio dispatches released by the sheriff's office Thursday show Peterson immediately fixated on Building 12 and even radioed that gunfire was happening “inside.” And, just as school shooter Nikolas Cruz was fleeing the building after killing 17 people, Peterson warned his fellow officers to stay away — even as wounded students and staff lay inside . . . “Do not approach the...

    With his political career in tatters following his admission that he molested four of his sisters as a 14-year-old, Josh Duggar and his family are moving away from Washington D.C. and back to Arkansas to be near the Duggar family compound in Tontitown. Moving trucks were spotted outside the 19 Kids and Counting star's five-bedroom home in Oxon Hill, Maryland, on Tuesday, just days after his parents and sisters sat down with Fox News' Megyn Kelly to try and defend his past 'mistakes.' Josh, 27, had lived in the home with his wife, Anna, and their three (soon to be...

    Based on history, most media watchers would probably expect NBC News to win the award for the most shameful coverage of George Zimmerman, the 29 year-old Florida man recently acquitted for the tragic shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin. But an objective look at the coverage from major print, online, and broadcast outlets, makes clear that by a fairly safe margin, CNN is most deserving of this win.

    A disgraced academic forced to resign after publicly mocking a sex assault victim has landed a £50,000 job at a prestigious London university. Nir Rosen was handed the positon at the renowned London School of Economics a month after he made 'cruel and insensitive remarks'about CBS correspondent Lara Logan, who was beaten and molested while covering the Egyptian revolution. Mr Rosen, 33, announced at the weekend he is to start work as a research fellow at the university's global governance centre.

    Even as he sits in the suburban Bay Area jail that once housed condemned killer Scott Peterson, Norman Hsu is still a wanted man. Jilted investors who sunk $63 million into Hsu's alleged Ponzi schemes are competing for whatever financial crumbs they can shake from the disgraced Democratic fundraiser. At the same time, state and federal prosecutors are wrangling over where he should be jailed. "We have the body," California Deputy Attorney General Ronald Smetana argued last week outside San Mateo Superior Court after a shackled Hsu was ordered held without bail. Hsu's fall from top-tier fundraiser has been swift:...

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Disgraced Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu (shoo) has been released from a hospital in Grand Junction and is in jail in Mesa County. Sheriff's officials say Hsu was booked on an outstanding warrant charge from California. An advisement hearing is scheduled for tomorrow (1:30 p.m.). Hsu has been wanted as a fugitive for missing his sentencing on a 1991 grand theft case to which he had pleaded no contest. He failed to show up for a bail hearing last week in California. He was placed under arrest last week at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction...

    SAN DIEGO - Disgraced former congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham lashed out at the reporter who uncovered the corruption scandal that sent him to prison, telling him in a letter that his "constant cruelty" had nearly destroyed Cunningham's life. The former Navy "Top Gun" pilot also blasted defense contractor Mitchell Wade, who helped implicate him to authorities. "Wade is the absolute devil," Cunningham wrote in the four-page, handwritten letter, excerpts of which were published Saturday on the San Diego Union-Tribune's Web site. Wade has pleaded guilty to giving Cunningham more than $1 million in bribes and is awaiting sentencing. His lawyer...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Former senator and astronaut John Glenn and his wife, Annie, were discharged Sunday from a hospital where they had been recovering from what he called a “very serious'' car accident. “I do not recommend you go test your air bags the way we did the other night,” Glenn said. Neither Glenn nor his wife was seriously injured, said Dr. Paul Beery. Beery said the former senator suffered a minor fracture in his sternum. Glenn was struck in the chest by his car’s air bag as it deployed during the accident, according to past reports. “As far...

    But let's have a show of hands: How many knew he was still there? It is a classic case of karma. For years he held a power that Presidents couldn't match. He could go home after the interview and edit remarks, leak themes, and shape expectations so thoroughly that viewers would see what they were told they would see -- and only that. He could raise questions, balance or imbalance carefully weighted views, cast doubts, editorialize while claiming merely to report, meet politicians personally, get to know them, carry grudges, foist off partisan schemes as if they were news, critique...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Veteran broadcast journalist Dan Rather has left CBS News in a bitter departure clouded by a reporting scandal over President George W. Bush's military record, ending 44 years as reporter, anchor and face of the network His career spanned such U.S. historical landmarks as President John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination, the Watergate scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon in 1974 and the attacks by suicide hijackers who seized airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Rather said his departure on Tuesday came after "a protracted struggle" with...

    SEOUL, South Korea - Disgraced cloning scientist Hwang Woo-suk went on trial Tuesday on charges of fraud and embezzlement in a scandal over faked stem cell research that undermined global hopes of dramatic new treatments for incurable diseases. Hwang was indicted last month for allegedly accepting $2.1 million in private donations based on the outcome of the falsified research and embezzling about $831,000 in private and government research funds. Hwang also was accused of buying human eggs for research, a violation of the country's bioethics law. If convicted, the 52-year-old scientist faces at least three years in prison. Hwang is...
