House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., contends there are no national security concerns that would warrant apparent stonewalling by the Justice Department and the FBI on President Trump"s order to declassify documents related to the Russia probe. The White House announced Monday evening that Trump had ordered the immediate declassification of about 20 pages of the DOJ"s and FBI"s application to the FISA court to obtain a warrant to spy on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page. In addition, text messages of key figures in the Russia investigation were to be released "

The Roots of Haiti’s Movement for PetroCaribe Transparency

Haitians worldwide, both in Haiti and throughout its international diaspora, have been demonstrating over the past two months to demand: “Where is the PetroCaribe money?” They are referring to a fund established in Haiti a decade ago by Venezuela, in conjunction with the Haitian government, which was supposed to finance projects to benefit the Haitian people. A November 2017 Haitian Senate investigatory report found that some $1.7 billion from the PetroCaribe Fund was either lost, squandered, or embezzled from 2008 to 2016. Its management “was marked by serious anomalies, irregularities,

Data: Republicans think the idea of a blue wave is “fake news”
