    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — DFL leaders called a press conference Thursday to show harmony after a bruising primary election. But if this is Democratic unity, one wonders what DFL dissension looks like. At the news conference, DFL Party Chair Ken Martin was peppered with questions about embattled Attorney General candidate Keith Ellison. “What I would say is that our party takes any allegation of domestic abuse seriously,” he said. “It’s a fluid situation. It’s still developing.”

    It was considered one of the CIA’s worst failures in decades: Over a two-year period starting in late 2010, Chinese authorities systematically dismantled the agency’s network of agents across the country, executing dozens of suspected U.S. spies. But since then, a question has loomed over the entire debacle. How were the Chinese able to roll up the network? Now, nearly eight years later, it appears that the agency botched the communication system it used to interact with its sources, according to five current and former intelligence officials. The CIA had imported the system from its Middle East operations, where the...

    Pressure on Keith Ellison to drop out of the race for Attorney General of Minnesota is growing. National and state party leaders are hedging their bets, mostly either refusing to comment or releasing anodyne statements. But the National Organization of Women has called on Ellison to step down. The best sign of mounting pressure is this: CBS has the story on the most recent domestic abuse allegation against Ellison: “Woman accusing Rep. Keith Ellison of abuse speaks out.” On Thursday, [Karen] Monahan, 44, spoke on camera for the first time about an incident she said happened nearly two years ago....

    A trove of emails and handwritten notes from Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr exposes the continuous contact and communication between the DOJ attorney and anti-Trump dossier author Christopher Steele, according to notes and documents obtained by SaraACarter.com. The emails and notes were written between 2016 and 2017. SNIP... In June 2017, Steele tells Ohr, “We are frustrated with how long this reengagement with the Bureau and Mueller is taking.

    A Georgia police chief is defending the use of a Taser on an 87-year-old grandmother after she was seen walking around with a knife near her home, which her family says was for cutting dandelions for a salad. Martha Al-Bishara, 87, whose family says she doesn’t speak English, was gathering the flowers Friday on property belonging to a Boys and Girls Club organization in Chatsworth when a staff member called 911 on her for trespassing, the Dalton Daily Citizen-News reported, citing the police report. “She’s old so she can’t get around too well, but looks like she’s walking around looking...

    Authorities have identified the body of a boy found at a New Mexico compound as Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, a missing 3-year-old whose father is accused of abducting him in November, according to the state's Office of the Medical Investigator. "Our thoughts and prayers go to Wahhaj's family," Alex Sanchez, a spokesperson for the office, said in a statement. "We certainly understand the heartbreak this news will cause and want to stress our commitment to investigating this death to serve the living." The boy's decomposed remains were discovered a few days after authorities first raided the makeshift compound on August 3 and...

    A Muslim man who immigrated from Jordan to the United States was found guilty of participating in an “honor killing” plot — including a plan to kill his own daughter for converting to Christianity — and was sentenced to death by a jury in Houston on Tuesday. Although the “honor killings” were to include five victims, the Muslim father, Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, was also found guilty of murdering his daughter Nesreen’s new husband, Coty Beavers, 28, and her best friend, Gelareh Bagherzadeh, 30, reported the Houston Chronicle. Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan apparently was enraged over his daughter’s conversion from Islam to...

    A former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman last summer is seeking to have a civil case filed against himself and others stayed until after his trial on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges has concluded. Mohamed Noor filed a request for a stay Thursday in U.S. District Court. The family of Justine Damond - the woman killed in the July 2017 shooting - filed a lawsuit in federal court last month against Noor, partner Matthew Harrity, former police chief Janee Harteau, current police chief Medaria Arradondo and the city. In the lawsuit, Damond's father, John...

    In a statement, Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., cited a New York Times op-ed published Thursday, after Brennan’s security was revoked, in which Brennan wrote that Trump’s claims of no collusion were "hogwash," saying the only remaining questions were whether the collusion amounted to a criminal conspiracy and whether the Trump team obstructed justice in order to cover up the collusion Brennan alleged. Burr said that if in fact Brennan had information that proved the Trump campaign colluded with a foreign power, he should have provided that information to special counsel Robert Mueller, rather than writing about it...

    Nearly 250 counties across the United States have more registered voters on the voting rolls than the number of eligible, citizen voters, Government Accountability Insititute (GAI) research director Eric Eggers reveals in his new book. Eggers told Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, as his new book, Fraud: How the Left Plans to Steal the Next Election, details, that voter fraud in the U.S. is a real issue that has yet to be dealt with. “You have 248 counties in this country that have more registered voters than you have citizens of legal voting age...

    Today the New York Times has published a column by John Brennan under the headline “President Trump’s Claims of No Collusion Are Hogwash.” Brennan served as Director of the CIA until January 2017 and held the highest security clearance until yesterday. He must know what he is talking about. Looking for the goods, I turn to his column. Here is the nub of the column: The already challenging work of the American intelligence and law enforcement communities was made more difficult in late July 2016…when Mr. Trump, then a presidential candidate, publicly called upon Russia to find the missing emails...

    Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison isn’t having the best week, but it’s nothing compared to what women around him have been through. The Minnesota lawmaker and Deputy Chair of the Democrat National Convention was accused by Karen Monahan of being physically abusive during their relationship. Karen’s son, Austin Monahan, backs up her claim. Now a second woman has courageously stepped forward, and she’s got the 911 report that gives her horrifying story some serious weight. Laura Loomer published the official report to her website.

    On Wednesday Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defended the company’s decision to put Infowars founder Alex Jones in a seven-day “timeout”. Dorsey said, “I feel any suspension, whether it be a permanent or a temporary one, makes someone think about their actions and their behaviors,” Dorsey said. In the same week that Jack Dorsey is lecturing on “appropriate actions and behavior” Twitter just certified racist New York Times writer Sarah Jeong with a blue check mark. And now this Twitter shut down two top Iranian activist’s pages today.

    Full headline: WOW: Trump-supporting Pentagon staffer had clearance REVOKED after complaining about Spygate figure Stefan Halper Deep State: While former CIA Director John Brennan complains about POTUS Donald Trump revoking his top-secret security clearance for undermining the president’s 2016 campaign, a bigger real-life clearance-related scandal has unfolded well under the radar of all but a handful of people. Adam Lovinger, a 12-year veteran strategist at the Pentagon who supports the president, was stripped of his security clearance by Obama-appointed hacks after he filed complaints about “questionable government contracts” that were awarded to Stefan Halper, the spy hired by the FBI...

    It was Chinese New Year, a weeklong celebration of fireworks and family to scare up good fortune and dispel evil spirits, when the killer went on the prowl again. He picked a young worker walking home, and followed a ways behind. He’d done it before, many times, enough to perfect his technique, but things did not go as planned that winter’s night. His crimes were already notorious and the target realized the danger; she fought back tooth and nail, locked the door, and frantically called her husband. It was then, she said, that her would-be killer reappeared, grinning outside her...
