WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump was in full deflection mode.The Democrats had blamed Russia for the hacking and release of damaging material on his presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton. Trump wasn't buying it. But on July 27, 2016, midway through a news conference in Florida, Trump decided to entertain the thought for a moment."Russia, if you're listening," said Trump, looking directly into a television camera, "I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing" — messages Clinton was reported to have deleted from her private email server.Actually, Russia was doing more than listening: It had been trying to help Republican Trump for months. That very day, hackers working with Russia's military intelligence tried to break into email accounts associated with Clinton's personal office.It was just one small part of a sophisticated election interference operation carried out by the Kremlin — and meticulously chronicled by special counsel Robert Mueller.We know … [Read more...] about Court records reveal a Robert Mueller report right in plain view

This is a story about a horrific massacre and a death row inmate's claims of innocence. Kevin Cooper's case has drawn worldwide attention, including from Pope Francis and Kim Kardashian West. The heartbreaking story about the brutal assault that left four dead and one young survivor in Chino Hills, Calif., also raises questions about the initial police investigation, the loss of key evidence, and whether someone else is actually the killer. "Nearly 20 years ago, I got a stack of letters from an inmate at San Quentin Prison," "48 Hours" correspondent Erin Moriarty reports. "His name is Kevin Cooper – and he wrote that he had been framed, as he put it, 'for something that I didn't do.'" Moriarty and "48 Hours" began exploring the case, the investigation, and Cooper's claims of innocence when she got the letters, and her reporting continues to this day. In 1983, someone brutally murdered Doug and Peggy Ryen, their daughter Jessica, 10, and a family friend, Christopher Hughes, 11. … [Read more...] about Kevin Cooper case: Was the wrong man convicted in the 1983 Chino Hills massacre?
Sen. Elizabeth Warren took the stage Thursday afternoon at American University to deliver a wide-ranging speech on her vision for the country’s foreign policy, in yet another potential sign that she may be preparing to run for president in 2020. In her speech, the Massachusetts Democrat called for the United States to rein in “unsustainable” overseas involvements in conflicts “that sap American strength,” criticized the country’s support for Saudi Arabia, called for cuts to the “bloated defense budget,” and reiterated her opposition to President Donald Trump’s reworked North American trade agreement. At the same time, she also called for a reconsideration of the bipartisan embrace of the “gospel that free trade was a rising tide that would lift all boats.” “We can start our defense of democracy by fixing what has gone wrong with our international economic policies,” Warren said. “Policymakers … [Read more...] about Read the transcript of Elizabeth Warren’s big foreign policy speech

WASHINGTON - North Korea's nuclear and missile tests have stopped, but its hacking operations to gather intelligence and raise funds for the sanction-strapped government in Pyongyang may be gathering steam. U.S. security firm FireEye raised the alarm Wednesday over a North Korean group that the company says has stolen hundreds of millions of dollars by infiltrating the computer systems of banks around the world since 2014. Those hackers used highly sophisticated and destructive attacks that have spanned at least 11 countries. FireEye says the group is still operating and poses "an active global threat." It's part of a wider pattern of malicious state-backed cyberactivity that has led the Trump administration to identify North Korea -- along with Russia, Iran and China -- as one of the main online threats facing the U.S. Last month, the Justice Department charged a North Korean hacker who is said to have conspired in devastating cyberattacks, including an $81 million heist of … [Read more...] about How North Korea’s ever-bolder cyberattacks target banks
