If true, this alleged type of surveillance conducted against her would brazenly violate her 4th Amendment rights — assuming surveillance was done by US Person or a proxie operating directly on behalf or at the direction of a US Person. Foreign nation surveillance is different.

Fittingly, ⁩ defends as a “profile in courage” a Senator—Edmund Ross—who was promised federal patronage in exchange for his decisive not guilty vote at Johnson’s impeachment trial: Courage, corruption, what’s the difference?

Whistleblowers in healthcare are among the most vital voices for every society to protect and amplify. Instead, all too often they're viciously silenced by healthcare organizations that view them as traitors and threats, not golden chances to improve

Today in "a backdoor for anyone becomes a backdoor for everyone": Italian surveillance technology intended to allow law enforcement access to suspects' encrypted communications becomes an illegal hack of hundreds of innocent Italians's phones.

Beyond cooked, cherry-picked or “exquisite” intel, fabricated ‘imminent’ threat as justification for assassination. Just take it on Trump faith to believe, absent evidence? His brazen lies led US to brink of war. This is madness. Sounds impeachable.

The administration didn’t present evidence to Congress regarding even one embassy. The four embassies claim seems to be totally made up. And they have never presented evidence of imminence—a necessary condition to act without congressional approval—with respect to any of this.

Sources say Microsoft on Tuesday will fix an extraordinarily scary flaw in all Windows versions, in a core cryptographic component that could be abused to spoof the source of digitally signed software. Apparently DoD & a few others got an advance patch

More American troops are now in the Middle East than at the end of President Obama’s term. The rate of drone strikes is up, too. President Trump is not ending wars; he’s expanding them. He’s not bringing troops home; he’s sending them there.

“Voting system CEOs agree to work with government, not independent analysts." 🚨The distinction matters. When independent analysts asked the DHS to ask ES&S to remove the cellular modems it installed in ballot scanners in swing states, the DHS refused. 1/

Again: every torture apologist I’ve ever encountered has zero real-world interrogation experience. Every interrogation professional I’ve ever encountered opposes torture. What does that tell you? Thank you , who doesn’t even need 60 seconds—handles it in 40

New: Over a billion X-rays, MRIs and ultrasounds are exposed online, despite warnings to hospitals and doctor's offices by security researchers. Many medical images included personal data, like names and diagnoses. "It seems to get worse every day."
