Trey Gowdy spent much of Monday's Russia hearing talking about how, if someone reveals details of FISA collection, that person has violated sacred trust and also committed felonious leaking. House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes was present for some, if not all of Gowdy's tirade.

Yet that didn't stop Nunes from engaging in precisely the kind of felonious leaking that Gowdy claims violates that sacred trust.

Neil Gorsuch's belief in reading the law as narrowly as needed to screw ordinary people reared its head again during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing Wednesday, but not because of anything Gorsuch himself said on Wednesday. No, the issue was something the entire United States Supreme Court said -- that Gorsuch was wrong in a 2008 opinion dealing with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. read more

The US has made a formal apology to Britain after the White House accused GCHQ of helping Barack Obama spy on Donald Trump.

Sean Spicer, Mr Trump's press secretary, repeated a claim on Thursday evening – initially made by an analyst on Fox News - that GCHQ was used by Mr Obama to spy on Trump Tower in the lead-up to last November's election.

The comments prompted a furious response from GCHQ, which in a break from normal practice issued a public statement: "Recent allegations made by media commentator Judge Andrew Napolitano about GCHQ being asked to conduct 'wiretapping' against the then president-elect are nonsense. They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored." read more

WASHINGTON -- In a striking repudiation, Republicans on Wednesday threatened subpoenas and vented openly about the lack of evidence behind President Trump's tweet that President Barack Obama had wiretapped his phones in Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign.

The Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Devin Nunes of California, told reporters on Capitol Hill that "I don't think there was an actual tap of Trump Tower" and that Mr. Trump, if taken literally, is simply "wrong.

(CNN)The White House on Monday walked back a key point of President Donald Trump's unsubstantiated allegation that President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones in Trump Tower during the 2016 election.

Namely, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Trump wasn't referring to wiretapping when he tweeted about wiretapping. read more

BOAZ is perhaps the biggest bigot I have ever encountered.

If not the biggest, he's in the top 10%.

He will scan the world news to find a Black man or a Muslim behaving badly.

I wonder if he is proud of the record of US Military violence against women?

Consider this:
• The Department of Defense (DoD) estimates more than 19,000 military sexual assaults
occurred in 2010, yet less than 14% were reported.

• Of the 19,000 estimated military sexual assaults, the 3,192 reports only led to 191
convictions at courts-martial.

• 1 in 3 convicted military sex offenders remain in the military.

• In 2011 alone, the Veterans Administration spent close to $900 million, or $10,880 per
military sexual assault survivor, on health services related to sexual assault.

In addition:
• The victim of domestic violence in the military is predominantly the female, civilian
spouse of active duty personnel. Victims normally have children and more than half have
been married two years or less.

• Substantiated spousal abuse involving members of the military is predominantly
perpetrated by male, active duty personnel.

• Among the Services, the Army consistently has shown the highest rates of domestic
violence, followed by the Marines, Navy, and Air Force.

• Abused women in military communities are often fearful of reporting incidents due to the
lack of confidentiality and privacy as well as limited victim services.

• In the sample of active duty military women from the greater Washington, DC
metropolitan area, 29.9 percent reported adult lifetime intimate partner violence, defined
as physical and/or sexual assault from a current or former intimate partner. African
American women were significantly less likely to be abused during military service than
were white women, but ethnic group membership was not a risk factor for lifetime
abuse.

I have no idea why Boaz is so giddy about pointing out the sins of Muslims, when he never mentions violence against women in the Military.

Please feel free to respond Major. Are you completely unaware of these incidents among your buddies?
