Published

Members of the Ku Klux Klan claimed yesterday to have taken over a Twitter account used by the member of Anonymous who hacked the KKK’s official Twitter account.

After the KKK threatened to use “lethal force” against protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, the hacker collective known as Anonymous announced Operation KKK (#KKK), in which they took the “hoods off” members of the KKK by posting information about them on Twitter.

The Klan responded by taunting Anonymous via its Twitter account, @KuKluxKlanUSA, writing “Anonymous is nothing but an act. Don’t be worried by this, fellow klansmen. #OpKKK #HoodsON” and “Anonymous is nothing but a bunch of wannabes. They won’t take any action. We will not be brought down by some low-lives behind a screen.”

Chief Justice Roberts admonishes lawyers at Senate impeachment trial

Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court John Roberts made his first major intervention in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.

After House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) finished his closing arguments on why former National Security Advisor John Bolton should testify, the White House team went on the attack.
