Washington, 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.

On the other side, the Senate health committee approved legislation to help states ensure the safety and welfare of children and legislation to fill shortages in the pediatric and geriatric health care workforce.”

Pasadena, 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.
