"We are potentially the most dangerous agency in the country." -- FBI Director Louis Freeh, to the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, 1997

I can’t help but wonder what proponents of America’s participation in the old Cold War dinosaur known as NATO are thinking about NATO officials who are contemplating sending NATO military personnel into Ukraine to train Ukrainian troops in their war against Russia. Those who relish the idea of nuclear war between the United States and Russia undoubtedly must be ecstatic over the possibility of such a move.

It has been clear for some time that Ukraine is losing its war with Russia. Ukraine has lost countless young soldiers and their front-line troops are now largely composed of middle-aged men. Its production has plummeted. Its supply of weapons is low, which is why it continues to desperately seek replacement weapons from the United States. Ukrainian forces continue to retreat. And there is the increasing possibility that Russian forces will achieve a breakthrough in Ukrainian defense lines.

Multiple Republicans have called for President Joe Biden to submit to a drug test before debating former president Donald Trump.

Advocates to drug test the president often cite his performance during his State of the Union speech earlier this year — when the 81-year-old seemed exceptionally lively compared to other public appearances.

Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina was asked on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” if Biden should take a drug test before the debate, to which he responded: “Why not?”

“The truth of the matter is if you saw the State of the Union and you watched that performance, it was surreal. There was something going on, and if we could find the truth of what it was, we’re all better off,” Scott said. “If it takes artificial stimulation to make the President of the United States perform, how often can he do that?”

Former President Donald Trump faced off once again with his former attorney who is being used to convict Trump in the Manhattan hush-money trial. The more time ex-Trump attorney Michael Cohen spends on the stand, the more is revealed about his credibility as a witness.

This week Cohen was on the defensive as Trump’s attorneys went after him. He was peppered with questions about his actions, character, and the truth of his statements. He apparently got caught during cross-examination in a way that will boost Trump’s defense.

Former Trump associates came forward after the cross examination with revelations that they believe Cohen lied on the stand. Bryan Lanza and Alyssa Farah Griffin said Cohen lied under oath when he testified to the court that he had not wanted to work in the Trump White House.

From The Daily Wire:
“[A]t least to me, Michael Cohen was pretty adamant that he wanted to be White House counsel. He said everything he was doing was to be White House counsel, he’s always injected himself with the space that I was in, which was the TV space, because Trump cared a lot about it. Just so, I always viewed that he’s always positioning, and he was pretty clear that he wanted to be White House counsel,” Lanza said.

Lanza joked about not wanting to be called to testify during his appearance on CNN where he made the statement. He told CNN that he had direct knowledge of Cohen’s aspirations for working in the White House.

Multiple threat actors are weaponizing a design flaw in Foxit PDF Reader to deliver a variety of malware such as Agent Tesla, AsyncRAT, DCRat, NanoCore RAT, NjRAT, Pony, Remcos RAT, and XWorm.

"This exploit triggers security warnings that could deceive unsuspecting users into executing harmful commands," Check Point said in a technical report. "This exploit has been used by multiple threat actors, from e-crime to espionage."

It's worth noting that Adobe Acrobat Reader – which is more prevalent in sandboxes or antivirus solutions – is not susceptible to this specific exploit, thus contributing to the campaign's low detection rate.
