Fusion GPS bills itself as a corporate research firm, but in many ways it operates with the secrecy of a spy agency. No sign marks its headquarters above a coffee shop in Northwest Washington. Its website consists of two sentences and an email address. Its client list is closely held.

The small firm has been under intense public scrutiny for producing the 35-page document known as the Trump dossier. Senior executives summoned to testify before Congress in October invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, and the firm is resisting a congressional subpoena for bank records that would reveal who has paid for its services.

But hundreds of internal company documents obtained by The Washington Post reveal how Fusion, a firm led by former journalists, has used investigative reporting techniques and media connections to advance the interests of an eclectic range of clients on Wall Street, in Silicon Valley and in the nation’s capital. The firm has played an unseen role in stories that dominated headlines in recent years.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told FOX Business Tuesday that the Department of Justice under former President Barack Obama was involved with D.C.-based firm Fusion GPS, which has reportedly conducted opposition research that resulted in the infamous and controversial Trump dossier.

“[James] Comey briefed the incoming President Trump about the dossier. I guarantee you Obama knew about the Dossier and he ought to be the subject of investigation as far as I am concerned as well,” Fitton said.

The anti-Trump dossier contained allegations that the Russian government had collected compromising information about Trump and that the Kremlin was engaged in an active effort to assist his presidential campaign.

Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe failed to appear Tuesday before the House Intel Committee citing a scheduling error following a Fox News report revealing that the wife of a demoted DOJ official worked with Fusion GPS during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Fitton said he doesn’t buy McCabe’s absence and describes the FBI has been resistant to congressional oversight as it relates to former President Bill Clinton and the anti-Trump “dossier.” (see link)

President Donald Trump drinks roughly 12 cans of Diet Coke every day, according to a lengthy New York Times profile about how he grapples with the daily demands of the presidency.

Trump is famous for his voracious consumption of cable news and tendency to fire off impulsive tweets when he's displeased with the way he's portrayed in the media. According to the Times report, the only people allowed to touch the TV remote are Trump and the technical support staff. The Times said the president watches up to eight hours of TV per day.

While he watches the news, Trump frequently likes to share his thoughts on the day's headlines with whoever's in the room — including members of the housekeeping staff, whom he "summons via a button for lunch or one of the dozen Diet Cokes he consumes each day," per The Times.

Trump is known for his fast-food habit. According to a book written by former top campaign aides Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, "the orchestrating and timing of Mr. Trump's meals" during the campaign "was as important as any other aspect of his march to the presidency."

"On Trump Force One there were four major food groups: McDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza and Diet Coke," the book said.

While he embraces his taste for fast food, Trump frequently pushes back against the notion that he's an avid consumer of cable news.

Seriously, how the fuck is this news? Everybody knows Trump is obsessed with media representation. He always has been and he always will be. It would be more productive to write an article like "About the color of the sky and why it's still blue" or "There is snow on Mt Everest".

Voter data lad, not votes. Basically the kid looked at some demographics to see who was going to vote and to better predict on what at where and to whom the campaign should focus on in order to maximize their chances of victory.

these aren't "buzzwords". he's defining scientific terms that the person he was replying to clearly didn't understand.
it's called "extrapolation". It's a statistical technique that has been used for centuries and is universally accepted as valid as long as the data you're extrapolating from is solid enough. Using the past to judge what will happen is literally the only way you can make any predictions about the future. The really great thing is that I learned about this in high school, and you should have too. It's like first-year statistics.
this is a better argument than "um actually no the scientists still think climate change isn't real" which is objectively untrue. I still disagree with you but i respect you slightly more than all the tards in this thread who can't commit to a slightly more logical conspiracy theory.
When nature regulates something, it's usually not in a cost minimizing way.
out of curiosity, what causes you to believe that it is credible?

looking at the fields of "science" these days it seems to me that everything that wasn't a science 50 years ago is very questionable. social science bills itself as a science and it's essentially a front for social engineering.

i believed a great deal in science a decade ago, but i have seen through much of the garbage that bills itself as science these days; anything that i cannot prove myself inspires in me a great deal of skepticism, and i worry that if the planet is ACTUALLY doomed we may not know until the last minute because of the insane overpromising of an inconvenient truth a decade ago.

personally i have no way of knowing if all the data is either garbage or being (intentionally or unintentionally) misrepresented. my wager is that you can't either (because you aren't on the inside and because you don't have a thousand hours to carefully comb through looking for errors)

what makes you believe that it's true facts then?

>implying intelligent people will survive
>the world didn't end this year so he's wrong despite all this measurable change
Don't go play in traffic, reddit wouldn't like it of you did
An intelligent person is resourceful and has foresight. With these qualities it's possible to survive anywhere, whereas a stupid animal that lacks these qualities would be unable to survive for long under even the most favorable conditions.

Just take Africa for example, the land there is plentiful and abundant, conditions are very favorable yet the negroes that live there are unable to feed themselves or their own children and thousands die off by the day. A stupid species is doomed to fail, the government and charities intervene to keep these subhumans alive but they are only prolonging the inevitable.
what does it matter? the climate changes and shit happens. all humans have done is accelerate the process. earth will go back to normal after we're all dead and then later die at the hands of the sun or something.

Appeals Court: Forcing A Teen To Masturbate So Cops Can Take Pictures Is A Clear Violation Of Rights

from the well-no-shit dept

I cannot imagine what it must be like as an appellate court judge to have to write these words (h/t Brad Heath):

“Construing the facts in the light most favorable to [Trey] Sims, a reasonable police officer would have known that attempting to obtain a photograph of a minor child’s erect penis, by ordering the child to masturbate in the presence of others, would unlawfully invade the child’s right of privacy under the Fourth Amendment.”

I don't know which is sadder: the fact that this case -- the absolute nadir (so far!) of stupid teen sexting prosecutions -- even exists or that the lower court somehow found in favor of the officer (now deceased) being sued.

A cop engaged in the act of producing child pornography by attempting to force a teen to arouse himself while surrounded by police officers supposedly for the purpose of matching the teen's erect penis to photos the cop already had in his possession as part of a sexting "investigation." The officer was told by prosecutors to do this, which shows the twisted logic of this abhorrent request didn't spring entirely from the mind of Detective David Abbott. He, however, did not turn down the prosecution's request. The prosecutor who ordered this "production" of evidence was Claiborne Richardson. Unfortunately, he has the sort of immunity cops like Abbott can only wish they had: absolute immunity. Richardson walks away from this with little more than reputational damage.

this is just fucking stupid plain and simple. what is this world coming to?
If you need a sperm sample to decrypt some kind of advanced biometric device, maybe. In legalese you need to have compelling public interest to force the person to comply with such an invasive type of search, in which case maybe bypassing the biometric is the only way to defuse a bomb or get into a terrorist hideout or some James Bond shit like that.
yeah but our freedom is measured with a $ sign according to the supreme court.
From what Ive gathered its more likely that he was just a "just followed orders" guy scared to lose his job. As usual the man giving the orders is immune to consequences.
>From what Ive gathered its more likely that he was just a "just followed orders" guy scared to lose his job.

The cop is the one who suggested the "search" procedure and the prosecutor then agreed with it and got the warrant.

The same cop later killed himself after he came under investigation for additional and unrelated gay pedo charges, so this clearly wasn't the cop's first time pulling this kinda shit.

"If I blame everything on Bush, surely they won't see I have no actual argument!"
That's simply not true. As every time in the past the additional investments made by citizens are not worth the loss of government investments(infrastructure and education mainly). Especially if the tax cuts are mixed with increased military spending's, which in a large part go towards foreign countries
yeah why dont we just get rid of taxes for everyone!?

Literally the most law abiding citizens- registered firearms because the government says so, get a 'medical' pot card instead of buying it off of a corner- are loosing their rights.

Seriously, kys.
How else are local enforcement (thugs) going to keep track of your weapons well enough to use them in the commission of a crime and implicate you, being the registered owner.
Yeah, no shit.
yeah so you could say this list of registered weapons is vital to the work our police forces do right?

and i guess if you want to restrict marijuana use to a certain class then you need a list of people allowed to use it.

so we have two lists of citizens attempting to follow the law, lets take all the people that fall into both lists and label them commie terrorist traitors who cannot be trusted to follow the law, and therefore cannot be trusted to own fire arms.

-thought process of us government

okay so we are told to register our weapons in case they are used in a crime.

okay so we are told to register for medical marijuana to protect the kids from the devils lettuce.

well now the gov is taking away the rights of legal medical marijuana patients so i guess im just going to keep buying my weed illegally from the local highschool kids.

idgaf what anybody says the second amendment is for defending ourselves from tyranny, and the only way that would be feasable is if we were in another civil war and the us army was split between the two sides.

regardless of how it could happen, if we were to suddenly lose the safety provided by the government and it was everyone for themselves i would feel far safer in a house with at least one gun than a house without.

a gun is the great equilizer, i could be an 80lbs female and if a 280lbs dude was inbetween me and the door im not getting out that door unless big buff dude allows it.

if i, the 80lbs little girl had a gun then suddenly i have an advantage and our places could be switched with me preventing the big bad dude from getting out the door.

now if we both had guns then we are both still on a more equal level than we were when neither of us were armed.

obviously not all guns are created equal but in the absence of government backed law, natural law is the only thing we are governed by and i would say everyone having a gun is as close to fair as natural law will get.

Boston University’s biolab is finally approved to start its research on the world’s deadliest microorganisms in hopes of finding treatment options.

The Boston Public Health Commission has given its final approval for BU’s National Emerging Infectious Disease Laboratories (NEIDL) to conduct its research at the highest biosafety level, BSL-4.

Microbes in a BSL-4 lab, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are “dangerous and exotic,” and pose a high risk of infections, which can be fatal. Examples include Ebola and Marburg viruses.

It’s been a long road for the BU lab to reach this level. The school has faced years of “scrutiny by regulatory agencies and city, state, and federal officials,” according to university publication BU Today. Now, with the health commission’s approval, the researchers are excited to get to work.

“As we have seen over the past several years, we are all vulnerable to potentially devastating infectious diseases that may have originated halfway across the globe,” Gloria Waters, BU vice president and associate provost for research, told BU Today.

“With the opening of the NEIDL’s BSL-4 lab, BU is poised to establish itself as a national leader in fighting microbial systems and infectious diseases,” she continued. “The work that will be carried out here will bring benefit and relief in the form of vaccines, treatments, and cures to people in Boston, the United States, and around the world.”

The health commission confirmed to Metro that it issued a letter of approval and a permit to NEIDL. “As a regulator of biological laboratories in Boston, BPHC carried out a rigorous review process of the NEIDL’s BSL-4 application, including a review of safety and security protocols, prior to issuing the BSL-4 permit," a commission spokesperson said in a statement.

Well hopefully there aren't any Jihadist sleeper cells in the country reading about this and getting ideas
Resident evil
ITT people who have no fucking idea what they are talking about.

It's at BU. You can find it on a map. You can ask a grad student in that department what building it's in. There are however a bunch of security protocols to get inside labs that either have risky materials or are at high risk of terrorism, such as ape and gmo labs, including biometric security. They also know how to make these labs safe -- they regularly make entire labs that shield from microtremors, cosmic rays, or the Earth's magnetosphere even during a nuclear attack.

Yes there is the possibility of failure -- that's why you take precautions and have regulations, which is the entire fucking point of the article. You couchpotato-experts who think you know better than people who have devoted their lives to science and engineering get elected to some position in government or promoted to a business exec and then like to pop into meetings in which they are hammering down the technical details of regulations and you say something utterly inane like "Well obviously nobody should be allowed to build the lab within 5 miles of an elementary school -- write that into the law!" Eventually the lab can't be built anywhere a scientist would ever want to live, or it gets built in an absolutely non-optimal location safety-wise, like on a fault line, because the better location was within 20 miles of some shithole backwoods town. You're what's wrong with bureaucrats.
You started out coherent at least
Yes? Should we stop driving cars because they MIGHT explode? Should you stop sleeping at night because someone MIGHT break in and your alarm MIGHT not go off? We have safety precautions for a reason. They aren't 100% by a long shot, but if you stop trusting them to be effective at all, you really can't justify the risk of doing ANYTHING.
