    The Department of Justice has submitted a new inventory of the materials the FBI seized in the Mar-a-Lago raid with a few modifications as part of the special master review of the search of former President Donald Trump's residence. The Justice Department has also submitted an FBI affidavit indicating that the new inventory fully reflects what was taken. The special master, Judge Raymond Dearie, had requested the affidavit after Trump claimed the agency may have planted items during the raid last month, according to CNN. “I am not aware of any documents or materials seized from the Premises on that date by the FBI that are not reflected in the Revised Detailed Property Inventory, other than materials that the Privilege Review Team has not provided to the Case Team," an FBI agent, whose identity was redacted, wrote in the new affidavit. CONSERVATIVE SOCIAL NETWORKS STRUGGLE TO MAINTAIN USER GROWTH A comparison between the two inventories showed that the latest version has two fewer press clippings and two fewer empty envelopes with classified banners than the previous...
    by Eric Lendrum   One of the biggest social media platforms in the world has allegedly been spying on the private messages and personal data of users who believe that voter fraud took place in the 2020 election, and has subsequently been handing this information over to the FBI. According to the New York Post, the alleged surveillance operation by Facebook and its coordination with the government was confirmed by several anonymous sources in the Department of Justice (DOJ). The sources allege that employees at Facebook have been red-flagging any suspicious private messages over the last 19 months, sending the information directly to the FBI’s domestic terrorism operational unit in Washington, D.C. These actions have been carried out without the use of an official subpoena. “It was done outside the legal process and without probable cause,” said one of the anonymous sources. “Facebook provides the FBI with private conversations which are protected by the First Amendment without any subpoena.” Subsequently, the contents of these messages would be sent out to various FBI field offices across the country as potential “leads,”...
    A Pennsylvania House committee announced this week it will investigate cases of “ghost flights” of illegal immigrants, possibly including children, that reportedly landed in the Keystone State.  The state House Government Oversight Committee accepted a referral from House Speaker Bryan Cutler (R-Quarryville) and Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff (R-Bellefonte) which voiced concern about media accounts of nighttime air delivery of persons who unlawfully entered the United States. Cutler and Benninghoff observed that whistleblowers have suggested these flights into the commonwealth’s northeastern region, allegedly chartered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), contain minors as well as adults. The individuals were reported to have been driven out of state after arriving.  “We intend to exercise the important role of the House Government Oversight Committee by investigating the flights into the Commonwealth and work to ensure the welfare of the children who may have been involved,” Mackenzie said in a statement. “We will also guard against revealing the personal or identifying information of any minors. Our goal is to be transparent about whether state resources, agencies, employees or non-governmental agencies...
    On Tuesday, September 13, federal Judge Bruce Reinhart unsealed additional parts of the affidavit that was used as the basis for the FBI’s August 8 search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago compound in Palm Beach, Florida. Although a heavily redacted version of the affidavit had been released in August, attorneys for the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) pushed for more parts of the affidavit to be unsealed — and on September 13, they were. New details in the affidavit that have been made publicly available, legal experts allege, indicate that Trump may have made false or misleading statements to his attorneys — who repeated them to DOJ officials. Business Insider’s Tom Porter reports, “According to the newly-released information, one Trump attorney told the DOJ ‘he was not advised there were any records in any private office space or other locations in Mar-a-Lago.’ A lawyer for Trump, Christina Bobb, also signed a statement saying that all of the information requested by the government had been handed back. That information turned out to be false. When agents executed a search warrant...
     A 27-year-old woman has started handing out dating resumés to men that she finds attractive - after growing exasperated with trying to find a boyfriend through online dating apps. Emily Zgoda, from San Diego, California, said she wasn't having any luck on Hinge, Tinder, or Bumble, so she decided to make physical copies of her profile and start handing them out to potential suitors. She printed out some photos of herself, and wrote fun facts about herself on the back of them - including things like her favorite hobbies (surfing and watching New Girl), her simple pleasures (eating bagels), and her special skills (singing like Aretha Franklin). She then headed to local fast food joints, restaurants, supermarkets, and stores and gave one to any guy that she thought was cute.

    OAKLAND — Two people were injured in a shooting Thursday just steps from busy commercial corridors, authorities said. Shortly before 6 p.m., officers responded to reports of ShotSpotter activity in the 300 block of 27th Street. When officers arrived at a scene just east of Telegraph Avenue, they found a person suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Officers provided aid until paramedics and Oakland Fire Department firefighters arrived to take the injured person to a hospital, where they were listed in stable condition. Soon after, police learned of a second victim suffering from a gunshot wound who managed to obtain his own transportation to a hospital. That person was listed in critical condition, police said. Police blocked off traffic along nearby streets to collect evidence and keep back active crowds from the scene, steps away from the city’s Telegraph Avenue and Broadway commercial corridors. Investigators said they do not yet have any motives or suspects in custody, and did not disclose any descriptions of suspects or associated vehicles. For information leading to the arrest of a suspect, police are offering...
    The Internal Revenue Service 'mistakenly' posted the names, contact data and financial information from about 120,000 taxpayers' retirement accounts.  The US Treasury Department determined that a human coding error allowed the confidential information to be posted on the IRS' website before it was taken down, the Wall Street Journal reported.  Among the information published were the names, contact information and finances of individuals who submitted 990-T forms regarding their IRA plans.  On Friday, the Treasury assured Congress that Social Security numbers, full income information and other key pieces of financial data were not published and that those affected would be contacted in the coming weeks.  A human coding error in the IRS' system allowed confidential information from 120,000 taxpayers' retirement accounts to be published online Among the information published were the names, contact information and finances of individuals who submitted 990-T forms (above) regarding their IRA plans  The Treasury and IRS blamed the mistake on a coding error that was implemented last year when 990-T forms were allowed to be filed electronically.  The form is often required for individuals whose...
    (CNN)The intelligence community has been working with the FBI since mid-May to examine some of the classified documents taken from Mar-a-Lago in order to determine their level of classification, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.This document-by-document review has allowed the agencies to determine whether any immediate efforts needed to be made to protect sources and methods as a result of the documents being held at former President Donald Trump's Florida residence and resort, the sources said.After the National Archives provided the FBI with access in mid-May to the 15 boxes it retrieved from Mar-a-Lago in January, the bureau began providing copies of relevant documents to individual US intelligence agencies to assess whether those that contained classified markings were in fact classified — and allowing the agencies that owned the sensitive information to informally determine whether the disclosure of the material could place sensitive sources at risk. That effort took place as part of the Justice Department investigation that resulted in the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago earlier this month.Under pressure from Congress, the director of national intelligence notified key...
    By ERIC TUCKER | Associated Press WASHINGTON — A judge on Thursday ordered the Justice Department to make public a redacted version of the affidavit it relied on when federal agents searched the Florida estate of former President Donald Trump to look for classified documents. The directive from U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart came hours after federal law enforcement submitted under seal the portions of the affidavit that they want to keep secret as their investigation moves forward. The judge said the department must file its redacted version by noon Friday. The redactions proposed by the department are likely to be extensive, so it’s not clear how much new information about the investigation will be revealed. Reinhart had given the department until Thursday at noon to propose to him the redactions to the affidavit it wanted to make before any portion of it was released to the public. But he acknowledged Monday that it was possible that the redactions, or blacked-out portions, would be so extensive as to leave the public version of the document without any meaningful information.

    Share this: EDITORS’ NOTE: The American Data and Privacy Protection Act (ADPPA) measure allows the collection of personal data when reasonably necessary to do so by providing a product or service, yet it also structures how certain companies can collect your data. The legislation also allows private right of action, which allows citizens to seek damages if there is found to be a violation of their ADPPA rights. Cell phone carriers and internet providers, along with any company who collects personal data, is included in the applicable “covered” entities who handle “covered” data: any information that can be reasonably linked to a single person. The ADPPA won’t be a shock to most companies, as the European Union’s General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) had forced stratification of many criteria the ADPPA enforces. Accessing appointments, public transit and financial institutions now preclude access to an internet-capable device. What is collected and how is extremely important in environments, like Brooklyn, where tech is ever-present.   Data privacy in the U.S. is, in many ways, a legal void. While there are limited protections for health and...
    PORTSMOUTH – Portsmouth City Council is set to vote on a couple controversial issues at the upcoming meeting scheduled for Monday, August 22nd. Council will vote on a second reading of an ordinance that would enact a new chapter to the codified ordinances entitled ‘short term rental operations’. The new legislation would require certain types of short term rentals – most notably Airbnb properties – to apply to the city planning commission for a permit in order to operate. The legislation would also subject short term rentals to the same hotel/motel tax as other establishments within city limits. Local taxes on AirBnB rentals are nothing new in Ohio. Cincinnati, Cleveland, Cuyahoga and Athens County all charge between 3% and 7% for occupancy taxes on rentals not exceeding 29 days. Council will also choose whether or not to bring a resolution to the next city council agenda on Monday. Mayor and 1st Ward Councilman Sean Dunne proposed the resolution which would “honor the rights of pregnant people to bodily autonomy and control over their private medical decisions…affirming the city’s commitment to...
    Lawyers for Alex Murdaugh are accusing prosecutors of allegedly hiding evidence - including blood splatters and phone records - and leaking information about the South Carolina family murders to the press ahead of Murdaugh's looming trial.  'It's trial by ambush,' attorney Dick Harpootlian said in a press conference on Wednesday. 'Give us the stuff. I don't have a shred of paper. I don't have an email. I don't have an exhibit. I don't have any evidence.'  Murdaugh, 54, was indicted in July on murder charges in the deaths of his wife Maggie, 52, and their 22-year-old son, Paul, who were killed on June 7, 2021, at the family's home. He has adamantly denied killing them.  The disbarred South Carolina lawyer's trial for the double murders is not set to happen until next year, but drama in the courtroom is already in full swing. Murdaugh's legal team blasted prosecutors of leaking details to the media instead of handing it over to the defense as required. They also claim they have never received any reports on blood splatter or evidence found on phones....
    Democrats and Republicans alike were transfixed with the drama of the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago, and many are waiting with bated breath to find out if Trump is in the crosshairs of an imminent indictment. That’s understandable, given that the question of whether or not the former president will finally pay a legal price for his alleged serial criminality is deeply entwined with the political future of the nation. However, it may be many months—and certainly after the next election—before we learn the full scope of the criminal peril Trump faces, let alone before he is charged. As we learned during the Mueller investigation, when a criminal law enforcement investigation is conducted appropriately—and in accordance with the governing laws and rules—the public learns very little from the government until (and if) charges are brought or, in rare cases, a report is made public. Indeed, in the case of information adduced from grand jury proceedings, it may well be a crime for government officials to put such material in the public record outside the context of a criminal charge. Accordingly,...

    CalPoly freshman Kristin Smart was last seen near her college dorm on Friday May 24, 1996 The mother of vanished college freshman Kristin Smart said her daughter fell victim to a spate of police failures in the wake of her disappearance from campus in 1996. Denise Smart said local police and staff at California Polytechnic State University had neglected to find Kristin, 19, forcing the Smart family to spend the past 25 years searching. Taking the stand at her daughter's murder trial, which began Monday, a tearful Denise said: 'I felt like the life of my daughter was of no value to anyone except her family. 'For the next 25 years, I did whatever I could and looked for answers wherever I could', CBS Sacramento reported. Denise said she contacted police shortly after Kristin failed to call home on Sunday, May 26. Kristin's cheerful call home was a weekly ritual, she said. They didn't know that she had last been seen on Friday, May 24.  Paul Flores, 45, is on trial in southern California. He is charged with Kristin's murder...

    Stacey Abrams. It’s another Saturday, so for those who tune in, welcome to a diary discussing the Nuts & Bolts of a Democratic campaign. If you’ve missed out, you can catch up anytime: Just visit our group or follow Nuts & Bolts Guide.  It’s been a while since I’ve tackled a problem subject—highlighted with the Aargh!—something that can completely damage a campaign, an unforced error you should absolutely avoid. This week I want to take on some unforced errors that will absolutely make you persona non grata for quite a while, because these errors will be seen by candidates and senior staff as unforgivable. Some errors extend beyond just causing the campaign a headache. Some errors speak to your level of attention, your care in helping a campaign, and your willingness to hurt a campaign if you feel it might help yourself. Do you want to see behind the curtain to the kind of mistakes that won’t just get you fired but will cause you to find yourself on the sidelines for a long, long time? Let’s talk about it. Private conversations are private...

    A horn described as a historical artifact was stolen from a New Jersey locomotive during a public display, and a $2,000 reward is being offered for clues on the culprit. Morristown & Erie Railway’s horn was stolen while locomotive No. 19 was on public display in Whippany over the Fourth of July weekend, according to a Facebook post from the Tri-State Railway Historical Society. The theft is being treated as an act of criminal trespass on an active railroad, as well as criminal theft and vandalism of a locomotive, the society said. “This is a hugely disappointing end to an otherwise great public event,” reads the post. The thief purportedly used a ladder to climb the locomotive’s hood and unbolt the distinct Nathan K3L horn, leaving behind traces of evidence that have since been turned over to local authorities. Meanwhile, a $2,000 reward is being offered for the return of the horn — or any evidence that leads to the arrest and conviction of the culprit. “We have reason to believe the thief is a member of the railfan community,...
    (CNN)Milwaukee officials are urging the public to come forward with any information related to the killing of a transgender Black woman who was found dead two weeks ago. Brazil Johnson, 28, was found fatally shot on June 15 in the city's Triangle North neighborhood. As of late Thursday, authorities were still searching for clues that can point to a suspect. "We are outraged to hear of the loss of a young, Black transgender woman in our city," Alderwoman JoCasta Zamarripa said Thursday during a news conference. "It is devastating that in light of Milwaukee's recent Pride celebrations, we are once again reminded of the harsh reality that transgender Black and brown women suffer higher rates of violence than their straight counterparts, as well as their lesbian, gay, and bisexual counterparts," she added.At least 19 transgender people have been fatally shot or killed in the US this year, according to the Human Rights Campaign. In 2021, the campaign tracked a record number of such killings, with at least 50 transgender and gender non-conforming people killed.Deadly attacks on Black trans women are...
    (CNN)Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee issued a directive Thursday that bars state police from cooperating with out-of-state investigatory requests related to abortion in his efforts to make the state a "sanctuary" for those seeking the services. The decision comes after the US Supreme Court ruled last week to strike down Roe v Wade, the 1973 legal precedent which guaranteed people's federal constitutional right to abortion. The historic ruling essentially leaves abortion laws in states' hands. Following the ruling, Washington -- among other mostly Democratic-leaning states -- moved to implement regulations that either further protect or expand abortion-related laws and policies.Where abortion trigger laws stand after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade"Washington is and will remain a sanctuary for any person seeking abortion care and services in our state, but we must act to protect our rights and our values," the directive Inslee issued read. "To that end, it is critical that our law enforcement agencies not cooperate in any manner with any out-of-state investigation, prosecution, or other legal action based on another state's law that is inconsistent with Washington's...

    Authorities are warning the public against a phone scam where callers are claiming to be police on Long Island. During the calls, scammers say they are a member of the New York State Police advising there is a case pending against them and requesting personal information.  The phone number showing up on caller ID is 631-756-3300 which is the phone number used by the New York State Police, Troop L Headquarters on Long Island. Neither the state police, nor any agency authorized by it, will ever solicit for money, or ask for personal information over the phone, state police said. "Please do not give any of your personal information over the phone unless you are 100 percent sure you know who you are speaking with and if you have any hesitation, simply hang up," state police said.
    Tiffany Long of Chattooga County spotted a juvenile black bear around the local swimming spot, the Blue Hole. The bear traveled along Raccoon Creek until Highway 114 when the bear crossed all lanes of traffic. “It was unbelievable so we had to take a picture so people would believe us,” Long said. The black bear is a symbol of Georgia’s natural diversity as it is the only bear found in the state and is a conservation success story. Though now considered the most common bear in North America, the species was nearly eradicated from Georgia in the 1930s due to unregulated hunting, illegal harvest – including the killing of bears as “vermin,” and large-scale habitat loss. Sound wildlife management practices have restored Georgia’s black bears to a thriving population estimated at 4,100 bears statewide. Black bears may legally be taken during the hunting season, which occurs each fall in Georgia (https://georgiawildlife.com/hunting/hunter-resources).  However, the taking of bears during any other time of the year, or the taking of bears illegally...

    At least nine people were shot—including a 21-year-old college basketball player who was killed—after gunfire erupted early Monday morning at a gathering in Harlem. The New York Police Department said that officers responded to a report of a shooting at around 12:40 a.m. at East 139 St. and Fifth Avenue. When officers arrived, they found five people with gunshot wounds on a footpath along FDR Highway, just under the Madison Avenue Bridge, and transported to a local hospital. Four other victims were also taken to the hospital. “It’s Father’s Day weekend.

    by Debra Heine   The Department of Homeland Security’s paused “Disinformation Governance Board” (DGB) was set up to respond to matters the government unilaterally determined to be mis-, dis- or mal-information (MDM)—specifically information that counters official regime narratives on “the origins and effects of COVID-19 vaccines,” “the efficacy of masks,” the validity of the 2020 election,” and “falsehoods surrounding U.S. Government immigration policy,” records obtained by Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) reveal. A DHS whistleblower provided the senators with internal DHS documents revealing how the board planned to coordinate with social media platforms to enable the removal of user content it deemed to be “MDM.” “The First Amendment of the Constitution was designed precisely so that the government could not censor opposing viewpoints – even if those viewpoints were false. DHS should not in any way seek to enlist the private sector to curb or silence opposing viewpoints. It is therefore imperative for DHS to provide additional clarity regarding its policies and procedures for identifying and addressing ‘MDM,’ as well as its efforts to...

    (CNN)Paxlovid, an antiviral treatment for Covid-19, was hailed as a game-changer in the pandemic thanks to its strong performance in lowering the risk of severe disease. Early supply challenges have been overcome in the United States, and the drug is perhaps more important than ever as case counts rise and more contagious variants spread amid stalled vaccination rates."Right now, with people not using prevention measures and with vaccinations not increasing as fast as we would like and not enough people being boosted, the ability to treat people at high risk of ending up in the hospital or of dying is our really our best potential tool for reducing the impact of infection," said Dr. Andrew Pavia, an epidemiologist and infectious disease doctor with the University of Utah.Coronavirus can be contagious during a Paxlovid rebound, researchers warn, even if people dont have symptomsBut the federal government hasn't shared any details about who is getting prescribed Paxlovid, leaving some experts concerned that as Covid-19 continues to spread, those who are still at higher risk may not have equal access to this next...
    Wisconsin Representatives Tom Tiffany (R-WI-07) and Scott Fitzgerald (R-WI-05) co-sponsored a bill that would make leaking a Supreme Court draft a federal crime. The legislation, introduced by Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA-04) and known as the “Leaker Accountability Act of 2022,” would mandate a potential fine or up to 5 years imprisonment, if an individual were to be convicted. The bill follows a leak of an initial draft opinion from the Court that signaled they may overturn Roe v. Wade, a move that would cause uproar among individuals that support abortion “The unauthorized leak of the draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health constitutes a grave breach of judicial ethics and a deliberate attack on the independence of the Supreme Court,” Johnson said. “This legislation is now, unfortunately, a necessary step to discourage future such attempts to intimidate justices during their deliberative process and restore independence to the Court so that it can ensure the American people are afforded equal and impartial justice under the law. The institution of the Court has been damaged and we must do what we...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — A lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign who is charged with lying to the FBI early in the Trump-Russia probe sought to “use and manipulate” federal law enforcement to create an “October surprise” in the final weeks of the presidential race, a prosecutor alleged Tuesday at the start of his trial. Michael Sussmann is accused of lying to the FBI during a September 2016 meeting by telling the bureau’s top lawyer that he wasn’t acting on behalf of the Clinton campaign when he presented information that he said might connect Russia to then-candidate Donald Trump. “He told a lie that was designed to achieve a political end, a lie that was designed to inject the FBI into a president election,” Shaw said. Sussmann’s trial is the first arising from special counsel John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s original probe into Russian election interference and potential ties with the Trump campaign. Sussmann misled the FBI into thinking that he was there as simply a “good citizen,” prosecutor Brittain Shaw told jurors, because he knew that if he...
    MAINE'S attorney general issued a warning to residents about scammers posing as IRS agents to defraud people. The state is sending out more than 850,000 stimulus checks this summer, and hackers are calling Mainers under the guise of gathering info to send out the money. 1Maine residents should be wary of potential relief check scams Scammers have reportedly asked for sensitive information like Social Security numbers. The state attorney general's office said that scammers claimed the information was necessary to process the stimulus checks, but in reality, Maine residents do not need to take any action. “Maine Revenue Services already has all the information it needs to issue these relief checks, so no one should need to share any information to collect this check,” Attorney General Aaron Frey said. “As always, do not share any identifying information with anyone demanding such information over the phone without independently confirming their identity.” READ MORE ON SCAMSFRAUD FEAR I lost $82K in a fake car sale - the signs to look for to avoid being scammedCUSTOMER CAUTION I lost $12k in a...
    GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Two inmates were found dead Thursday in the same unit of a local jail in South Carolina, authorities said. Staff at the Greenville County jail found the inmates unconscious around 4 p.m. and paramedics pronounced them dead, the Greenville County Coroner’s Office said in a statement. Autopsies are planned for Friday, according to the coroner’s office, which didn’t release any additional information including whether there was any sign of trauma or the names of the inmates or the charges they faced.

    Washington (CNN)A federal judge on Thursday panned a recent court filing from special counsel John Durham, chastising him for including unnecessary information that fueled a firestorm in right-wing circles about supposed spying on former President Donald Trump.Judge Christopher Cooper of the DC District Court made the comments during a hearing in the case of Michael Sussmann, a layer who worked for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and was charged with lying to the FBI during a meeting about Trump's connections to Russia.

The person was just brutal," Adams said on Friday, according to NY1. "And you know often here… people want to lean into the long term plan of dealing with, of not allowing the feeders of violence to happen, which is important, and I talk about it all the time, but darn it, we need to deal with those who are on our streets right now, that are dangerous, that are violent, that have a total disregard, and I’m not going to surrender that." "A woman taking the train should not be struck in the head with a hammer, repeatedly, and for us to believe that dangerous people like that in some corners, that we need to say because they are in pain they should inflict pain, I don’t subscribe to that," Adams continued.

    In this article TSLAMaja Hitij | Getty Images News | Getty ImagesTesla CEO Elon Musk, via his attorney, accused the Securities and Exchange Commission of leaking information about a federal investigation in order to retaliate against him for public criticism of the federal financial regulators. In a letter on Monday to U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan, Musk attorney Alex Spiro wrote: "It has become clearer and clearer that the Commission is out to retaliate against my clients for exercising their First Amendment rights—most recently by criticizing the Commission on the public docket and by petitioning this Court for relief."

Spiro did not specify which investigation or what type of information may have been leaked by the SEC, and to whom. In the letter, he...
