Thousands of FBI agents just had their personal information stolen and published by hackers: report

Published

on

On Friday, TechCrunch reported that hackers gained access to three websites associated with the FBI National Academy Association.

The hackers reportedly penetrated the sites through security flaws, downloaded each of their web servers, and posted the data to their own website. Some 4,000 agents’ personal information was exposed, including “member names, a mix of personal and government email addresses, job titles, phone numbers and their postal addresses.”

The FBINAA has chapters around the United States, committed to promoting law enforcement training at the FBI’s academy in Quantico, Virginia.

In a statement to TechCrunch, one of the hackers boasted about having breached 1,000 sites: “Now we are structuring all the data, and soon they will be sold.”

The hacker admitted the breach could “probably” put law enforcement officials at risk.

Trump lawyer Purpura busted by MSNBC for lying on the Senate floor during impeachment trial

Published

Moments after the end of the Saturday's Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump concluded, MSNBC host Brian Williams pointed out that one of Donald Trump's attorney's lied on the Senate floor about the president's Ukraine scandal-- and he had a clip handy to prove it.

Sharing footage of attorney Mike Purpura stating the higher-ups in Ukraine were unaware that Donald Trump was withholding aid until after the government helped him by announcing an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, the MSNBC host called the attorney out.

To make his point that Pupura was being untruthful, Williams then showed a clip of Defense Department official Laura Cooper, who testified that Ukrainians were asking about the delay on the day of the Trump phone call that was the starting point of the impeachment trial.

Any normal president could find some defense attorneys who aren’t clowns and grifters

Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

Donald Trump's penchant for telling reporters about his crimes doesn't leave his legal defense team a lot to work with. In the first week of his Senate trial, they've pounded the desk and rended their garments over how mean their Democrats opponents are toward their client. But the worst is yet to come--WaPo reports that during the next phase of the proceedings, Trump's legal team will offer "a scorched-earth defense of President Trump in the impeachment trial, mounting a politically charged case aimed more at swaying American voters than GOP senators — and damaging Trump’s possible 2020 opponent, Joe Biden."

Published

on

After three days of House impeachment managers’ brilliant prosecution of President Donald Trump – and “prebuttal” of the arguments the president’s team was expected to make – White House attorneys Saturday morning began their defense of President Trump.

It’s not going well.

Deputy White House Counsel Mike Purpura (photo) has been making the majority of today’s arguments – they have decided that not enough people will be watching on TV so Saturday’s defense will last not eight but just two hours.
