    A professor who challenged the 2013 claims of a chemical attack in Syria is now questioning the Trump administrationís narrative blaming the Assad government for the April 4 attack in the Idlib province town of Khan Shaykhun. On Tuesday, the White House released a declassified intelligence brief accusing Syrian President Bashar Assad of ordering and organizing the attack, in which Syrian planes allegedly dropped chemical ordnance on civilians in the rebel-held town. The report ďcontains absolutely no evidence that this attack was the result of a munition being dropped from an aircraft,Ē wrote Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Professor Theodore...

    WASHINGTON Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories ó some fictional ó that favored Donald Trumpís presidential bid, two people familiar with the inquiry say. Operatives for Russia appear to have strategically timed the computer commands, known as ďbots,Ē to blitz social media with links to the pro-Trump stories at times when the billionaire businessman was on the defensive in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton, these sources said. Russian President Vladimir Putin is accused by the FBI of ordering a...

    For the record, Michael Flynn is a lifelong DEMOCRAT and an Obama appointee (to a highly sensitive position). That alone is reason enough to be suspicious of him, especially when considering the hard Left shift of the party in recent years. Michael Flynn: "because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the President and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology. _____________________________________________ Michael Flynn was invited to attend and speak at the 10th Anniversary...

    In an amusing twist, Julian Assange whose Wikileaks has now had 20 individual releases of hacked John Podesta emails over the past three weeks and who has been accused by Hillary Clinton of collaborating with the Russians in an attempt to disrupt and subvert the US electoral process, accused the Clinton campaign of attacking the servers used by WikiLeaks. Speaking via telephone at a conference in Argentina on Wednesday, RT reported that Assange claimed the daily email release ritual has ďwhipped up a crazed hornetís nest atmosphere in the Hillary Clinton campaignĒ leading them to attack WikiLeaks. ďThey attacked our...

    RT, a state-run Russian television network that broadcasts around the world in English, was implicated in a recently declassified United States intelligence report that accused the Russia government of meddling in the American presidential election to tip the vote in favor of Donald J. Trump. The Russians are accused of hacking the email systems of the Democratic National Committee and conducting a widespread disinformation campaign that included the propagation of fake news stories on the internet and the airwaves. RTís coverage of Hillary Clinton ďthroughout the U.S. presidential campaign was consistently negative and focused on her leaked emails and accused...

    As WikiLeaks continues to release emails from Hillary Clintonís campaign chair John Podesta, team Clinton has attempted to deflect attention from the content, by again accusing Russia of ďweaponizingĒ false information. After 14 separate batches leaks from Podestaís email account, RT journalists simply doing their job and searching the WikiLeaks public database to uncover potentially damaging correspondence is enough for the Clinton campaign to continue claiming it is evidence of an alleged Russian conspiracy to interfere in the US elections
