Washington (CNN)Ken Cuccinelli is expected to be placed in the number two post at the Department of Homeland Security by Chad Wolf, the incoming acting Homeland Security Secretary, after legal hurdles prevented Cuccinelli from serving in the top role, according to a source familiar with the plan. The Senate is set to vote on Wolf to become undersecretary for the Office of Strategy, Policy and Plans at the Department of Homeland Security Wednesday morning, clearing the way for him to become acting Homeland Security secretary. The expected move to elevate Cuccinelli, the acting US Citizenship and Immigration Services chief and an immigration hardliner, to a higher post within the department gives him greater latitude over President Donald Trump's signature issue. The decision to make him acting deputy DHS secretary is also indicative of how the White House views the Department of Homeland Security, which, despite its sprawling mission, has largely been tasked with executing Trump's … [Read more...] about Cuccinelli expected to be elevated to acting deputy secretary of Homeland Security
Elevating foot makes pain worse
(CNN)The world-class pairing of Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen is the only calling card that "The Good Liar" needs. Yet even these two knighted performers -- in a rare star vehicle for a pair of senior citizens -- can't elevate this adaptation of Nicholas Searle's book, which clearly wants to be twisty and Hitchcockian but never quite gets there. Instead, the film -- directed by Bill Condon (who worked with McKellen on "Gods and Monsters," before helming "Dreamgirls" and "Beauty and the Beast") -- winds up feeling like a better-than-average Lifetime movie, just with an inordinately pedigreed cast. That includes not only the leads but Jim Carter ("Downton Abbey") as McKellen's literal partner in crime, given that his character, Roy Courtnay, is a con man, one who plays the doddering old sweetheart right up until he sticks the knife in. Roy's victims come in all shapes and sizes, but a financially comfortable widow who he meets online certainly looks like an easy mark. At first, Mirren's … [Read more...] about ‘The Good Liar’ can’t make the most of its dream Mirren-McKellen pairing
close Video San Francisco Police Officers Association President: New D.A.'s pledge is cause for concern to officers San Francisco's newly elected district attorney, Chesa Boudin, has pledged to not prosecute public urination and other quality-of-life crimes, including offering or soliciting sex. Tony Montoya, President of the San Francisco Police Officers Association, warns that as some of the most common crimes officers face, there is a cause for concern among law enforcement personnel, especially amid the homeless crisis facing the Bay Area. In an exclusive interview with Fox News, San Francisco Police Officers Association President Tony Montoya said that a pledge by the city's newly-elected district attorney not to prosecute public urination and other quality-of-life crimes that have plagued the Bay Area should be "very concerning." In response to an American Civil Liberties Union questionnaire reported by The San Francisco … [Read more...] about New San Francisco DA’s pledge making homeless crisis worse, says police union chief
MOSCOW — Reporters covering the conflict in Ukraine are in constant danger. At least six journalists have lost their lives in the two and a half years since the “hybrid” war there began. Dozens have been abducted, dragged away by masked men, and threatened with executions. On one of the early days of the war, on May 24, 2014, three journalists—Italian photographer Andy Rocchelli, his co-author, a human rights defender and journalist Andrei Mironov, and French reporter William Roguelon drove up the road outside of Andreyevka village, known for almost daily firefights between Ukrainian and pro-Russian rebel forces. They were seasoned correspondents. Mironov, 60, was a veteran of Afghan and Chechen wars. A few minutes after they stopped their car to interview civilians living on the front line, there were bursts of gunfire followed by the blast of a grenade launcher and a mortar barrage that left Roguelon wounded and Rocchelli and Mironov dead. The mortar had torn … [Read more...] about Malicious Leaks Make Journalists Targets in Ukraine
