The FBI Needs A Better Cyber Team

FBI Software For Analyzing Fingerprints Contains Russian-Made Code, Whistleblowers Say
In a secret deal, a French company purchased code from a Kremlin-connected firm, incorporated it into its own software, and hid its existence from the FBI, according to documents and two whistleblowers. The allegations raise concerns that Russian hackers could compromise law enforcement computer systems.

And to think, Rex Tillerson dismantled the State Department's cyber team.

The World Is A Safer Place Without Saddam Trump

Jon Huntsman is Trump’s Ambassador to Russia. When Governor of Utah he signed off on Uranium One doing business there. Republicans are asking for an investigation into Uranium One—which means they’re asking Feds to investigate the Trump Admin & one of it’s Ambassadors. Game over.- Scott Dworkin

A Viewer's comment on the 12-26 edition

Republicans don't care what he does. If he killed someone on 5th Avenue, Republicans would say the person had it coming. They all belong in jail.  - Chelsea Handler


Hillary Clinton could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and do nothing, and they would say she shot somebody. - Brian Krassenstein


If these get put together (with a John Mulaney), we get a statement closer to reality:

Trump stands on 5th Avenue, and someone randomly gets shot 3 blocks away while he's standing there. In reality, he did nothing, but he tweets he shot the victim because they were a Homeless Liberal Gay Haitian Muslim Immigrant with Aids (who was new in town). Hillary Clinton, who was in Wisconsin at the time, gets blamed by the GOP and 5 senators call for an investigation of her because the emails will prove she did it. - Gretchen

So Vanity Fair decided that the best way to end 2017 was to take a repulsive cheap shot at Hillary Clinton, one of the most accomplished women in the history of the United States. - Peter Daou

Obama And Hillary Remain #1
Americans once again are most likely to name Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as the man and woman living anywhere in the world they admire most, as they have for the past 10 years. The pair retain their titles this year, although by much narrower margins than in the past. Obama edges out Donald Trump, 17% to 14%, while Clinton edges out Michelle Obama, 9% to 7%.

If I were Hillary my next book would be titled Y'all Can Go F-ck Yourselves.- Jeff Tiedrich

They didn’t save health care for 9 million kids. They didn’t save 800,000 DREAMers from being deported. They didn’t protect us from guns. They didn’t make us safer. They didn’t create any jobs. They didn’t help seniors, students or disabled.
Republicans only helped themselves.- Scott Dworkin
