    Miles Taylor, a former Department of Homeland Security official, revealed himself to be "Anonymous," the self-described senior Trump administration official who claimed to be a part of the "resistance" despite a previous public denial. Taylor served as chief of staff to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and was also a counterterrorism adviser to then-White House chief of staff John Kelly. On Aug. 21, he explicitly said he was not "Anonymous" during an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper. He already came out against President Trump at that time, and he became a network contributor weeks later. Cooper asked him if he was aware of the identity of “Anonymous,” and Taylor answered, “I’m not. Look, that was a parlor game that happened in Washington, D.C. You have a lot of folks trying to think of who that might be. I’ve got my own thoughts about who that might be.” The anchor then said, “You’re not Anonymous,” to which the former Trump official responded, “I wear a mask for two things, Anderson: Halloweens and pandemics. So, no.” Taylor wrote the op-ed for...

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot claimed a big win Friday in her fight to reform some police supervisor contracts, including the ability for people to file complaints anonymously.RELATED: Mayor Lori Lightfoot calls for unity, police reform in wake of unrest after George Floyd's DeathMayor Lightfoot's push for police reform got a boost from the arbitrator handling contracts for sergeants and lieutenants."The arbitrator's ruling that was announced earlier today is truly, nothing short of historic," Lightfoot said. "It covers a number of issues that we've been fighting for literally for years."The reforms allow for complaints to be filed anonymously, for the first time in 40 years. The ruling prevents disciplinary records from being destroyed after five years and it prevents the names of complainants from being disclosed before being interviewed."Reform is here, we're continuing down this path," Lightfoot said. "We are not going to stand still, the status quo has failed everyone, certainly the public and also I think, including their members."Talks with the Fraternal Order of Police will now incorporate those reforms."There are some things in that decision...
    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was hit with a new federal indictment on Wednesday accusing him of conspiring with hackers, including the group “Anonymous.” The superseding indictment doesn’t add new charges beyond the 18 counts the Department of Justice unsealed last year — but broadens “the scope of the conspiracy” that Assange is accused in, prosecutors said. “Assange and others at WikiLeaks recruited and agreed with hackers to commit computer intrusions to benefit WikiLeaks,” the DOJ said in a press release. Prosecutors said that Assange and a WikiLeaks did their recruiting during conferences in the Netherlands and Malaysia in 2009. “Since the early days of WikiLeaks, Assange has spoken at hacking conferences to tout his own history as a ‘famous teenage hacker in Australia’ and to encourage others to hack to obtain information for WikiLeaks,” the DOJ said. In 2010, Assange allegedly gained access to a NATO country’s government computer system, prosecutors said. Two years later, he allegedly “communicated directly” with the leader of the hacking group LulzSec — who was by the cooperating with the FBI — and “provided...

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island lawmaker has introduced legislation that would make Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings essential and allow them to be held in person during the coronavirus pandemic and other declared emergencies. “The services provided by Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are not only essential, they are necessary for the public health,” state Rep. Camille Vella-Wilkinson said in a statement Monday. “During the pandemic, AA meetings were designated as a social gathering rather than an essential service, while liquor stores were considered essential and permitted to remain open." The Warwick Democrat noted that many people are court-ordered to attend AA meetings. The bill would also mandate that adequate measures be implemented to provide the services safely. “To consider this service as non-essential when the results can be devastating is not only absurd, it’s reckless," she said.

    Minneapolis Police Department’s website was temporarily disabled after an apparent cyber attack — just days after Anonymous vowed retribution for the police custody death of George Floyd. The department’s website first went down late Saturday, along with the main one for the city of Minneapolis, according to Bloomberg news. Since then, the websites have been relying on extra security, requiring visitors to submit “captchas” to verify they are not bots, a common tool used by hackers to overwhelm websites. The apparent attack came just days after the politically charged hacker group Anonymous declared it was targeting the department. “So it begins …” the group wrote late Thursday on its unconfirmed Facebook page, alongside an almost four-minute video attacking the department’s “horrific track record of violence and corruption.” “This travesty has gone on for far too long, and now the people have had enough,” said a figure wearing a hoodie and a Guy Fawkes mask. “People have had enough of this corruption and violence from an organization that promises to keep them safe,” the figure said in a mechanical voice. “Unfortunately,...
