WASHINGTON — Richard Grenell’s tenure as the nation’s top intelligence official may be short-lived, but he wasted no time this week starting to shape his team of advisers, ousting his office’s No. 2 official — a longtime intelligence officer — and bringing in an expert on Trump conspiracy theories to help lead the agency, according to officials. Mr. Grenell has also requested the intelligence behind the classified briefing last week before the House Intelligence Committee where officials told lawmakers that Russia was interfering in November’s presidential election

From the article describing the Nunes memo: "The memo was widely criticized as misleading, though an inspector general later found other problems with aspects of the surveillance." The Slimes can't admit that Nunes was right.

He should take that Intelligence office down to about ten! Then begin to staff it with people who won't try to stab Trump in the Back. If there is a Leak, lock down and find out who did it and prosecute them. I think Trump knows what he's doing, it's called cleaning house!

Intelligence gathering is much like shoveling smoke. you people should think about the unknown millions of dollars we pay to fat old professors, sitting in british pubs, manufacturing intelligence to keep the U.S. dollars flowing to them. then think about the little things our intelligence agencies missed - the fall of the Soviet Union, the 1993 bombing of the WTC, 9/11/01 attacks, and many more. add in the FBI flubs, giving passes to the Boston marathon bomber twins, even after the Russian government warned us, san Bernardino, memphis recruiting station, Orlando homosexual night club, and we should be wondering about such incompetence.

After what we've witnessed over the past three years with the partisan Obama loyalists at the FBI, DOJ and CIA fabricating evidence to oust a duly elected president, and giving Hillary a pass, the Times has the unmitigated gall to accuse Richard Grenell of being a partisan. My guess is at least one of the three so-called authors of this article attended Harvard and at least one of the three self-identifies as a "Bernie Bro".

NEW YORK — Harvey Weinstein, the formerly powerful movie mogul whose sexual misconduct jump-started the #MeToo movement, was convicted of two sex crimes here after a historic weeks-long trial featuring graphic testimony from six tearful accusers. Weinstein was found guilty of criminal sexual act in the first degree related to accuser Miriam "Mimi" Haleyi and rape in the third degree related to accuser Jessica Mann. Weinstein was immediately handcuffed and taken into custody. He is scheduled to be sentenced March 11. The split verdict was rendered after during the fifth day of deliberations by a jury of seven men and five women.

The chatter started up again, stronger than ever, before caucus sites even opened across Nevada on Saturday. First, it was in the form of whispers among campaign strategists and donors, and as the week wore on, it became outright pleas in certain corners of cable news and Twitter. For Democrats desperate to nominate anyone other than Bernie Sanders, the time had come for some serious candidates to start dropping out. The basic logic has never been in question: If Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, and Tom Steyer all stayed in the race, they would continue splitting the delegates needed for the nomination

When Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the World Health Organization, declared late last month that the outbreak of the novel coronavirus was an international public-health emergency, he took pains to commend China for its response to the pathogen. “In many ways, China actually is setting a new standard for outbreak response, and it’s not an exaggeration,” he said. As the new disease, now called COVID-19, grew into a health crisis, Chinese officials had quarantined entire cities in a matter of days, suspended travel, closed schools and businesses, and imposed severe restrictions on who could leave their homes.

The billboards will display on a truck driven across the Strip from 5-10 p.m. One graphic praises Trump’s record on the economy, while another shows a chair being thrown at Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez in reference to an alleged incident in which supporters of Sen.

When Jerry Lee Lewis entered a Nashville recording studio late last month, he had no idea what was going to happen. He had not played music since February 2019, when he suffered a serious stroke at his home in Nesbit, Mississippi. Though his team described the stroke as “minor” at the time, it wasn’t; Lewis was left with mobility issues, and those around him feared he wouldn’t survive. Lewis was more concerned about whether he would ever be able to play the piano again; he spent three months in a rehab facility relearning to walk and trying to gain use of his right hand. It was a struggle.

Former GOP ad men who were once flirting with running Avenatti for president were no longer returning phone calls.

Only a fraction of the Democratic primary electorate has voted so far, but the nomination season is off to a rocky start. Independent Bernie Sanders seems to be leading in popular votes, while upstart Pete Buttigieg is ahead in the delegate count. And there’s also the question of whether either one — or any of the other candidates — can bring the party together moving forward. The current process is clearly flawed, but what would be better? Finding an answer means thinking about the purpose of presidential nominations, and about how the existing system falls short. It will require swimming against the tide

It seems Michael Bloomberg entered the presidential race for at least two reasons: he wants to be president and he understands the importance of denying President Trump a second term. His late entrance into the race, however, means every decision he makes is exponentially more consequential as the clock counts down to November 3. His strategy so far has been to spend -- and spend some more -- blanketing the media landscape with the message that he's the best candidate to take on Trump. In any political campaign, candidates need to know what they stand for, and who -- or what - they're up

I’ve been enthusiastic about Mike Bloomberg’s race for president from its inception, partly on the theory that he was best positioned to rescue and represent the Democratic Party’s moderate wing. (Snip)Wednesday’s debate left Sanders unscathed. Nothing and nobody touched him. The Democratic Party’s riskiest bet is now its likeliest. I say this as someone who wrote, a little earlier than most, that Sanders had the best chance of winning the nomination, and that he has just as serious a shot at winning the presidency as Donald Trump did four years earlier.
