Horrifying: The head of Belgium’s counter intelligence service has been arrested for spying for Russia. Based on what I’ve seen, this is the tip of the iceberg. Putin’s henchmen are probing for traitors and weakness all over the world.

Capitol Police Inspector Thomas Lloyd Jr. should probably show up to the Capitol once and a while. If he did, he'd see this is how congressional reporters do their job every single day.

The Daily Beast election security story reminds me of the dubious Bloomberg microchip story, but on a smaller scale. Confirmation bias driven by anonymous sourcing, a story that leaves beat reporters covering the topics puzzled, & those reading w/out other context misinformed.

New from : In an interview today, said flat-out that the Daily Beast's story about the election task forces is "factually inaccurate." “By design, they are temporary surge structures to address an emerging or new issue."

I wouldn't necessarily disbelieve Krebs here. The story was a little light on details - could very well be needed restructuring ahead of 2020, or something else entirely. I've spoken to a lot of state officials recently and no one said anything about DHS slacking off.

A Senate run seemed very much on Pai's mind when I wrote about his electoral plans a couple years ago. But one thing folks in his orbit questioned was his willingness to put his young family through a run. Have to wonder whether the net neutrality nastiness made him reconsider.

If your meet-cute is 9/11 you might just want to make up another story.

"It's kind of a litmus test, or a flashpoint." Opposition to the merger between T-Mobile and Sprint becomes a 2020 campaign issue as Democrats go through an "antitrust revival." ($) ?

Please consider apologizing for misleading your followers. They trust you to be intellectually honest and you failed them miserably with this.

Grew up in the Bay Area but left for DC over six years ago. All my friends who stayed now seem like hopeless romantics on EVERYTHING, while to them I'm incomprehensibly cynical. It's an under-appreciated cultural divide.

Opportunity's 3-month mission lasted 15 years. This is a great time to remember the (1&2) spacecraft were launched in 1977 and their mission continues 42 YEARS LATER in INTERSTELLAR SPACE. deserves one hell of a shout-out.
