US intelligence chief is tough on Russia, at odds with Trump

US intelligence chief is tough on Russia, at odds with Trump

National Intelligence Director Dan Coats' drumbeat of criticism against Russia is clashing loudly with President Donald Trump's pro-Kremlin remarks. That is leaving the soft-spoken spy chief in an uncomfortable — and perhaps perilous — seat in the administration. Trump's remarks after Wednesday's Cabinet meeting, where he appeared to deny the longtime U.S. foe was still targeting American elections, are just the latest in a growing list of statements that conflict with Coats'. His job is to share the work of the 17 intelligence agencies he oversees with the president. Coats will be speaking Thursday at a national security conference in Aspen, Colorado. The former Republican lawmaker is expected to outline the cyberthreats the U.S. faces from Russia as well as other countries, such as China, North Korea and Iran.

Jacksonville man convicted for cruise ship assault on developmentally challenged teen

Jacksonville man convicted for cruise ship assault on developmentally challenged teen

A Jacksonville man has been found guilty of aggravated sexual abuse on a developmentally delayed teen on a local cruise ship. Federal court records show it took the jury just over an hour to convict Brian Holland of the charge. He was arrested in early March for the assault aboard the Jacksonville-based Carnival Elation.  Prosecutors say Holland assaulted the victim while they were in the hot tub on the ship. He was sitting next to the victim, when he pulled her toward him and touched her inappropriately. Family of the victim says she is 18-years-old, but has the mental capacity of a 12-year-old.  Holland is being held in federal custody, pending his sentencing, which will take place October 22nd. He could face life in prison.

Russian woman kept in custody as feds allege covert political work for Moscow

A federal judge on Wednesday refused to release a 29 year-old Russian woman who pleaded not guilty to illegal political activity in the United States, as federal prosecutors alleged that Mariia Butina was working “as part of a covert Russian influence campaign” in 2016 and 2017, which was aided by at least one American.

“Because Butina has been exposed as an illegal agent of Russia, there is the grave risk that she will appeal to those within that government with whom she conspired to aid her escape from the United States,” prosecutors said in new court documents filed on [More]
