Flynn Offers To Cooperate With Congressional Probe In Exchange For Immunity


By Washington Post, March 31, 2017

Now that everyone has had a chance to digest Logan, the growing consensus is that it's right up there with the best comic book movies ever released. Given a free reign and an R-rating to play with, co-writer and director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman have created a film that has not only raised the bar for the genre, but provided an opportunity for it to have a rebirth, too.

This isn't the first time that we've heard such a claim. Endless journalists across countless op-ed pieces have insisted that, post-Nolan's Batman Begins, the likes of The Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Deadpool have in one way or another rejuvenated the genre.

The bill would ban the use of weaponized drones, but exempt police. Details on how law enforcement could use drones with weapons would be spelled out in new rules to be developed by the state Police Officer Standards and Training Council. Officers also would have to receive training before being allowed to use drones with weapons.

White House Invites Lawmakers to View Surveillance Documents


By Bloomberg, March 30, 2017

The Trump administration invited leaders of congressional intelligence panels to review documents it said raise questions about whether government spy agencies improperly identified President Donald Trump’s campaign officials and associates in the course of routine foreign surveillance.

In a letter signed by White House Counsel Donald McGahn, the administration said Thursday it was responding to a March 15 request from intelligence committees for “documents necessary to determine whether information collected on U.S. persons was mishandled and leaked.” It asks the committees to probe whether the intelligence was properly gathered, whether names were improperly revealed and “to the extent that U.S. citizens were subject to such surveillance, were civil liberties violated?”
