    The spying by the Obama administration on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump reportedly was even worse than what he has alleged. And it had nothing to do with Russia but everything to do with politics. Sources in the intelligence community claim the potentially illegal revealing of names, or unmasking, of people in the Trump camp who were under surveillance was done purely “for political purposes” to “hurt and embarrass (candidate) Trump and his team.” The bombshell revelations come from rank and file members of the intelligence community who are fighting back against a stonewall by the leaders at the nation’s spy...

    The Scientist Who Wanted To Bring A Death Row Inmate Back From The Dead Dr. Robert E. Cornish is probably best known for his 1930s revivification experiments with dogs, in which he claimed to bring dogs back from clinical death. He wanted to try a similar procedure on humans — and when a death row inmate volunteered, Cornish petitioned the state of California to let him play re-animator. Cornish's dog experiments would make most dog lovers cringe. Cornish would suffocate the dogs until they were clinically dead, and then he would place the bodies on a teeter board, rocking the...

    California corrections officials say convicted serial killer Richard Ramirez, known as the Night Stalker, has died in prison. San Quentin State Prison spokesman Lt. Sam Robinson says Ramirez died Friday morning. Ramirez was convicted of 13 murders that terrorized Southern California in 1984 and '85, and sentenced to death. Satanic symbols were left at murder scenes and some victims were forced to "swear to Satan" by the killer, who entered homes through unlocked windows and doors. Ramirez was captured and beaten in 1985 by residents of an East Los Angeles neighborhood while attempting a carjacking.

    The San Quentin inmate who murdered another prisoner to avenge a Novato girl's death read a statement of condolence Wednesday to the girl's family. "The innocence of a child will be defended at all costs," said Frank Souza, referring to 9-year-old Melody Osheroff, who was killed by a drunken motorcyclist in 2009. The motorcyclist, Edward Schaefer, was convicted of murder, manslaughter and other charges in 2010 and sent to San Quentin State Prison. Less than two weeks later, Souza ambushed him in a prison yard and gouged him repeatedly with a makeshift metal spear. Souza, 33, eventually pleaded guilty to...

"We've had hundreds of people out here reading messages from prisoners and speaking out about issues that are important to us." Among the reforms protest organizers are calling for are elimination of solitary confinement, a ban on the death penalty and an end to California's "three-strikes" law. The protest...

    San Francisco, CA (AP) -- A federal judge who halted lethal injections in California over concerns that it was cruel and unusual punishment plans to tour the state's new death chamber in February. U.S. District Court Judge Jeremy Fogel on Wednesday told attorneys representing a death row inmate who filed a lawsuit and the state attorney general's office that he wants to hold a hearing at San Quentin State Prison sometime in February. Fogel is determining whether the state's new lethal injection procedure is constitutional. Fogel halted executions in early 2006 and ordered prison officials to improve their lethal injection...

    SAN FRANCISCO — San Quentin Prison's warden walked to the death row cell of Albert Greenwood Brown on Aug. 31 and read a "death warrant" informing him of his scheduled execution this week. The lawyers wasted no time in blaming election-year politics, saying that Attorney General Jerry Brown's office initiated the execution because Brown is locked in a tight campaign battle with Republican Meg Whitman.

    An inmate imprisoned for fleeing officers in Alameda County apparently was mistakenly released from San Quentin. According to the Solano County District Attorney's Office, Dante Rodgers was supposed to appear in Superior Court on Tuesday on new charges of committing battery while in prison. After being bounced between two state prisons and Solano County Jail, however, Rodgers has gone missing. Rodgers was about to be paroled from the California Medical Facility last month after serving time on a charge of evading peace officers in Alameda County. But he picked up a new charge of battery upon a non-inmate at the...
