Marsha Blackburn Report: FBI Spying on Trump Campaign

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – At this week’s Senate Judiciary hearing, I asked the FBI’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz why the nation’s most elite law enforcement abused its surveillance powers under FISA to spy on an American citizen who was a member of President Donald Trump’s campaign. The report was the first look into the surveillance state at work.

Next, the Senate will look at an even bigger picture of what happened at the FBI, at other intelligence agencies, and around the world in a new report from U.S. Attorney John Durham, which has broader investigative authority.

101st Airborne Division Soldiers share personal ties to Battle of the Bulge

 

U.S. Army EuropeBastogne, Belgium – Seventy-five years ago in Bastogne, Belgium, German soldiers captured American Pfc. Marold Peterson of the 422nd Infantry Regiment, 106th Infantry Division.

Peterson escaped from the work camp where we was held prisoner, only to be captured again and killed by Hitler Youth.

Sgt. Travis Paice, the great-grandson of Peterson, said it is surreal to be in Bastogne where Peterson lived his last moments.

“Maybe he was standing right where I stood,” Paice, a Soldier with the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, said.

NASA’s Juno Spacecraft discovers new Cyclone on Jupiter

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA says Jupiter’s south pole has a new cyclone. The discovery of the massive Jovian tempest occurred on November 3rd, 2019, during the most recent data-gathering flyby of Jupiter by NASA’s Juno spacecraft. It was the 22nd flyby during which the solar-powered spacecraft collected science data on the gas giant, soaring only 2,175 miles (3,500 kilometers) above its cloud tops.

The flyby also marked a victory for the mission team, whose innovative measures kept the solar-powered spacecraft clear of what could have been a mission-ending eclipse.
