    (CNN)Be careful what you wish for, you may just get it. So the saying goes, and it certainly applies to former President Donald Trump and his many GOP enablers who clamored for the affidavit underlying the Mar-a-Lago search warrant that was executed by the FBI on August 8. Norman EisenShan WuThe Justice Department released a redacted version of the affidavit on Friday and even with its heavy redactions, it worsens the former President's circumstances in multiple regards.First, just a reminder of what this document is. In order to obtain a warrant to search Mar-a-Lago, the DOJ, under the US Constitution, had to demonstrate "probable cause" -- that is, sufficient evidence for a reasonable person to conclude the search was justified. According to the affidavit, "there is probable cause to believe that the locations to be searched....contain evidence, contraband, fruits of crime, or other items illegally possessed..." The affidavit specifies three possible crimes: prohibiting the concealment or removal of government records, which is punishable by up to three years in prison; prohibiting the deliberate retention or transmission of national defense...
    Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda has said he plans to bring up a stand-off with Russia at this week's NATO summit.Picture Alliance | Picture Alliance | Getty Images Everything changed when Russia invaded Ukraine and NATO's defense strategy must now account for the new security environment on Europe's eastern flank. That's the coordinated message from the three Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania ahead of NATO's all-important Madrid summit this week. Bolstering the defense of the Baltic region is seen as one of the most important decisions for NATO leaders to take at the group's June 29-30 summit. The 30-member military alliance is poised to reflect on how the group can respond to Europe's new security reality.We need to move to deterrence by denial. We need a credible military construct on the Eastern flank that will deter Putin.Estonia's foreign ministryRussia's onslaught in Ukraine, now into its fifth month, has ratcheted up fears throughout the Baltic countries that they may be President Vladimir Putin's next military target. All member states of both NATO and the European Union, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania...
    Washington (CNN)The congressional naming commission which was set up to remove Confederate names from military bases will review the names of "more than 750 Department of Defense items" that include everything from military bases to streets and bridges, to determine whether their names "commemorate the Confederacy," a release from the Commission announced Wednesday.The Commission, established by the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act in the face of fierce opposition from former President Donald Trump in 2020, was originally tasked to rename up to nine military bases and sites associated with the Confederacy. The Commission reports to the House and Senate Armed Services Committees.The list of more than 750 items includes not just the nine military bases but also roads, signs, bridges, and fields on bases and military installations across the US and two items at a US naval base in Japan.The list is as detailed as naming stickers, flyers and posters on certain military installations that need to be reviewed, including "window decals at Ozark and Enterprise gate Welcome Centers" at Fort Rucker in Alabama and "mechanical room signage" at Fort...
    The Extending Government Funding and Delivering Emergency Assistance Act passed in the House with no Republicans supporting it. House Republicans accused Democrats of abandoning Israel after they opted not to include $1 billion in aid money for the Israeli Iron Dome missile defense system in a bill intended to keep the U.S. government running and avoid a debt default. The Republicans had already made it clear they were not going to vote for the legislation even if it did include the aid, however. The Extending Government Funding and Delivering Emergency Assistance Act, which passed in the House on a party-line vote Tuesday, is aimed at keeping the federal government running for the next 10 weeks and suspending the national debt ceiling until December 2022. All 211 Republicans present voted against it. On Wednesday, the Republicans took to social media to accuse Democrats of betrayal. Rep. Elise Stefanik, the chair of the House Republican Caucus, tweeted, "House Democrats ABANDONED our ally. I will stand with Israel." "Two years ago—70 Republicans &...
    Next1 of 3Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse While there were some outstanding performances from signal-callers in Week 1, three guys in particular looked nothing short of inconsistent on Sunday.  With the first batch of the NFL games wrapped up on Sunday, there was some amazing performance behind center. Russell Wilson was tremendous, throwing for 254 yards and four scores. However, there were also some not-so-great performances from quarterbacks. In this piece, we take a look at three signal-callers who really struggled and may end up being benched down the road. The list includes Pittsburgh Steelers veteran Ben Roethlisberger.3. Ben RoethlisbergerThe Pittsburgh Steelers just recorded quite the season-opening win going up against the Buffalo Bills, but boy should Ben Roethlisberger feel lucky about how things played out for him. Plain and simple, Roethlisberger looked very much like a player who turns 40 in March. To say Roethlisberger’s play was lethargic would be a massive understatement. On the day, Roethlisberger went 18-of-32 for 188 yards and one touchdown. Yes, we understand the Buffalo defense is stingy, but these...
    President Biden has been in office less than a year but now, in the midst of grappling with the coronavirus and with a wealth of other issues on his plate, he is facing perhaps the biggest question of all: are we alone? The idea that we may share our universe with alien life is far from new, and there have been regular sightings of UFOs — Unidentified Flying Objects — for decades. But these have, until recently, been dismissed as hoaxes, or misinterpretations of natural phenomena. Despite Hollywood’s enthusiasm for the subject, the U.S. Defense Department has always downplayed the significance of such reports and sightings. Now, however, no less a figure than Barack Obama has raised the stakes by admitting on The Late Show that, when President, he asked whether there was a lab somewhere ‘where we’re keeping the alien specimens and spaceships?’ President Biden has been in office less than a year but now, in the midst of grappling with the coronavirus and with a wealth of other issues on his plate, he is facing perhaps the...
    Savannah Rychcik February 10, 2021 0 Comments Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is claiming that if Republicans refuse to convict former President Donald Trump it will because they are his “co-conspirators.” “If Senate Republicans fail to convict Donald Trump, it won’t be because the facts were with him or his lawyers mounted a competent defense,” Clinton wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. “It will be because the jury includes his co-conspirators.” If Senate Republicans fail to convict Donald Trump, it wont be because the facts were with him or his lawyers mounted a competent defense. It will be because the jury includes his co-conspirators.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) February 10, 2021 It is seemingly unlikely Trump will be convicted after only six Republicans voted to declare the trial constitutional, as IJR reported. Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) all voted yes. Cassidy said in a statement, “We have heard arguments on both sides on the constitutionality of having a Senate trial of a president who has since left office. A sufficient amount of...
    Donald Trump's impeachment trial could be finished as early as Saturday if there are no witnesses called by the prosecution as senators prepare to barrel toward a finale vote on the former president. Additionally, Trump's legal team is not expected to use the full 16 hours allotted to them to make their case - which would also cut down on trial time. And the Senate now will be in session late Friday and on Saturday after Trump attorney David Schoen dropped his request to have them recess for the Sabbath. Schoen, an observant Jew, said he would let the other defense attorneys take the lead during that time.  Donald Trump's defense lawyer David Schoen argued Tuesday that Democrats are using the impeachment proceedings as bloodsport to drag the former president through the wringer  House lead impeachment manager Representative Jamie Raskin points up at a video that he had just shown of Trump supporters storming the U.S. Capitol building, cut together with parts of the former president's speech on January 6 Trump attorney Bruce Castor started off his defense of...
    President-elect Joe Biden formally unveiled his nominee to be Defense secretary as several Democratic senators, including Elizabeth Warren, said  they won't vote for a congressional waiver that would let retired General Lloyd Austin serve in the post. The lawmakers are citing concern about maintaining the tradition of a civilian-controlled military and the early opposition indicates a rocky confirmation process lies ahead for Austin, who would be the first black defense secretary if confirmed.  Austin, dressed in a navy blue business suit, addressed the lawmakers' concern in his remarks. 'I come to this role now as a civilian leader — with military experience to be sure — but also with a deep appreciation and reverence for the prevailing wisdom of civilian control of our military. I recognize that being a member of the president’s cabinet requires a different perspective and unique responsibilities from a career in uniform,' the retired four-star Army general said at the event at The Queen Theater in Wilmington. 'I intend to keep this at the forefront of my mind, and I look forward to surrounding myself with experienced,...
    When Patrick Mahomes signed his record 10-year contract extension, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback said the team was about to become a dynasty. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins thinks his quarterback is absolutely correct, as long as the front office takes steps to keep the team together. Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk wrote on Tuesday that Watkins made an appearance on ESPN where he said he believed the Chiefs are set to make a strong run at several Super Bowl wins. “And [Mahomes is] gonna be the man for the next 10 to 15 years, that’s what we’re debating. We’re going to have a dynasty,” Watkins said. “If the Kansas City Chiefs can keep all the players together, we’re going to be a dynasty.” Watkins was agreeing with comments Mahomes made earlier in the week, at the press conference where the team officially announced the terms of his new contract. At that news conference, Mahomes said the team was “chasing a dynasty” and that his being signed to a long term deal was one of the steps in accomplishing its...
