Published

For many weeks now, folks have been waiting for the review of alleged surveillance abuses from the Department of Justice and the FBI during the investigation into Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election could arrive any time now.

However, it’ s still not been released.

Here’s more from Fox News:

For more than a year and a half, Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been investigating alleged misconduct related to the FISA warrants delivered by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). The Justice Department and FBI obtained warrants in 2016 to surveil Trump adviser Carter Page. It is unclear, at this point, if Page was the only Trump official that the DOJ obtained a FISA warrant against.

That highly anticipated report will likely spark new congressional investigations and deliver critical information to other federal reviews probing allegations of abuse by the Justice Department and the FBI.

“As soon as Horowitz is done with his review of the FISA warrant application, the counterintelligence investigation, the Trump campaign, we’ll have a hearing in public with Horowitz and we’ll call a bunch of witnesses,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on Fox Business’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”

Last month, Horowitz submitted a draft of his report to Attorney General Bill Barr, who was reviewing the document — fueling the belief that the public release was coming soon.

But a Justice Department official told Fox News last week that the report is still in the declassification process — one of the final steps to be completed before the report is released to the public.

“The FBI and the DOJ are working together smoothly on the declassification process,” the official told Fox News.

President Trump has been very enthusiastic about the release of the report, hyping it up pretty regularly. The president spoke with reporters last week saying, “The IG report is going ot come out soon, and we’ll see what happens.”

He went on to add that he’s “waiting for the report like everybody else.”

“But I predict you will see things that you don’t even believe, the level of corruption — whether it’s [James] Comey; whether it’s [Peter] Strzok and his lover, [Lisa] Page; whether it’s so many other people — [Andrew] McCabe; whether it’s President Obama himself,” the president said.

Trump added, “Let’s see whether or not it’s President Obama. Let’s see whether or not they put that in.”

Horowitz has been investigating the infamous anti-Trump dossier that was compiled by Christopher Steele, a former spy for the Brits, which was used to help secure the original FISA warrant for Page way back in October of 2016, for more than a year and a half now.

Strange New Correlation Discovered Between COVID and Bald Men

This strain of coronavirus just keeps getting weirder.

From the very onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the medical community appeared stumped.  Sure, this was a novel virus and, as such, came complete with a number of strange and unknown consequences. There were your “long-haulers”; folks who seemed to continually have issues recovering from the illness.  Others lost their senses of taste and smell, sometimes for months on end.  There were even reports of so-called “COVID toes” – an ailment that affected the coloration of the skin on toes and fingers of a small percentage of patients. Now, in another odd correlation within the coronavirus spectrum, it appears that men who’d gone bald are at particular risk for certain side effects of COVID-19. New research suggests they spend up to twice as long in hospital with Covid than those who still have a full head of hair. Science seems to have at least some idea of why this is. They are also admitted to intensive care in higher numbers. Scientists say men’s Covid vulnerability largely comes down to male sex hormones called androgens. Men who are genetically more sensitive to androgens appear to be more likely to suffer severe Covid. They are also more likely to have hair loss, called androgenetic alopecia, which affects around half of men over the age of 50. The science seemed to back this up. A team of US doctors measured men’s sensitivity to androgens by counting a chemical called CAG. High levels indicate that a man is more likely to have hair loss. Of 65 men hospitalised with the infection, those with high CAG levels had worse Covid outcomes in the 60 days following their hospitlisation. They spent 47 days in hospital, on average, and 70.6 per cent were admitted to ICU. For comparison, those with low CAG levels spent an average of 25 days…

Officers Who Witnessed George Floyd’s Death Facing Federal Charges

The charges appear to stem from the DOJ’s investigation into the Minneapolis police department.

After nearly a year of turmoil and tumult, former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted in the killing of George Floyd – a local man who succumbed to asphyxiation as Chauvin knelt on his neck and back for nearly 9 minutes. The incident kicked off a national racial reckoning that transformed a great deal of our popular culture during a time in which many of us were still living in fear of a global pandemic. Now, as Chauvin’s legal team prepares a hefty appeal to the ruling, other officers who were present during Floyd’s death are facing federal charges on account of their hesitance to render aid to the dying man. The federal indictment accuses Chauvin — who held his knee on or around the neck of a handcuffed and prone Floyd for more than nine minutes — of killing the 46-year-old while violating his rights to be protected from use of unreasonable force by a police officer. It also accuses two of Chauvin’s fellow cops — Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng — of “willfully” failing to intervene to stop Chauvin from using unreasonable force, a failure that also led to Floyd’s death. All three ex-officers, along with the fourth, Thomas Lane, are accused of letting Floyd die by willfully failing to aid him when they saw Floyd “lying on the ground in clear need of medical care.” The charges appear to stem from a DOJ investigation into the practices and policies of the Minneapolis Police Department, and whether or not the culture of the organization has created an unacceptable sense of violence or entitlement among officers there.
