In late October 2016, the FBI and DOJ obtained a probable cause order from a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) court, allowing them to electronically surveil Carter Page, a voluntary adviser to the Trump campaign (and charmingly bizarre human being). The memo claims that the Christopher Steele dossier — research by an ex-MI6 intelligence officer, which was funded, in part, by Hillary Clinton’s campaign — “formed an essential part” of the FBI’s application for that order. And yet, the Bureau did not inform the court of Clinton’s role in financing the collection of this information anywhere in its application. … [Read more...] about 6 Quick Takeaways From the Nunes Memo

Before the releases — a process now known as “Realignment” — California prison officials warned that the violent crime rate would surely rise. Instead, according to detailed studies by the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California and academic researchers, the state’s violent crime continued to hover at about the same level it was in the 1960s — a historic low. “There were no impacts on violent crime,” said Magnus Lofstrom, the institute’s policy director of criminal justice. Another way of putting this: Today there is about the same amount of violent crime in California as when the state incarcerated five times fewer people. After Realignment, data did show a brief uptick in property crimes like car theft, but even that fluctuation soon disappeared, returning to a baseline that is also historically low, Lofstrom said. … [Read more...] about California could cut its prison population in half and free 50,000 people.
