A bombshell four-page “FISA memo” alleging egregious surveillance abuse by the FBI, DOJ and Obama administration, specifically names FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to the Daily Beast.
The GOP-authored memo made waves last week after it was made available to the full House of Representatives for viewing. With over 60 GOP lawmakers calling for its release, Capitol Hill sources on both sides of the aisle tell The Daily Beast that it’s only a matter of time before the general public is allowed to view the document – which is likely to stoke already-inflamed tensions between GOP lawmakers and the individuals named in the leak.
The facts contained in the Republican majority-authored report are said to be “jaw-dropping and demand full transparency,” according to Rep.

The fragile 11 cm by 2.5 cm (4.3 by one inch) piece of papyrus, dated by the Israel Antiquities Authority to the 7th century B.C.E, that was presented Tuesday at a news conference in Jerusalem, has two lines of Hebrew script:
“From the king’s maidservant, from Na’arat, jars of wine, to Jerusalem,” it reads, suggesting it was part of a document detailing tax payments or the transfer of goods to storehouses in Jerusalem.
Archeologists judge the document plundered from a cave by antiquities robbers, “the earliest extra-biblical source to mention Jerusalem in Hebrew writing.”
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu wrote on Twitter: “Hey UNESCO, an ancient papyrus dating to the 1st Temple 2700 yrs ago has been found. It bears the oldest known mention of Jerusalem in Hebrew.”
He was referring to the UNESCO majority vote for a resolution that caused wide outrage by obliterating the millennia of Jewish history on Jerusalem’sTemple Mount and renaming the Jewish shrine “Haram al-Sharif, a Muslim place of worship.”
An American-flagged fishing vessel caught fire while docked in Kaohsiung harbor today, August 4, 2016. Nine fire trucks and two fire boats were dispatched to deal with the blaze.
At 3:13pm, thick smoke and flames erupted from behind the bridge of the 258.4 foot American Eagle. The flames spread to the bridge, but fortunately nobody was trapped on the vessel and no casualties were reported.
The cause of the fire is being investigated. It took firefighters more than an hour to extinguish the blaze.
The American Eagle previously caught fire 1,800 miles south of Hawaii and was abandoned by it’s crew of 42 on February 10 this year. The crew re-boarded the ship after the smoke and flames abated. Rescue efforts during that incident included the deployment of a HC-130 Hercules airplane.
