Aliso Canyon becomes a hot topic anew in LA City Council District 12 race

Four years after a massive gas leak was detected at the Aliso Canyon underground storage facility, the race for Los Angeles Council District 12’s seat has rekindled the controversy. All 11 candidates at a recent forum said they believed the 3,600-acre facility needs to be closed. That earned enthusiastic shouts from the audience. “It would be close to political suicide to take any other position,” said Larry Levine, a political consultant who is not representing any candidates in this race. The ...

James Comey Offers Up Half-Assed Apology For Being Such An Asshole About Encryption (techdirt)

Former FBI director James Comey's move to the private sector has been… well… annoying, if we're honest. After being booted by President Trump for allegedly failing to pledge his fealty to the Oval Office throne, Comey has become a hero of the so-called Resistance. Those lionizing Comey as some sort of truth-to-power speaker seem to have forgotten he ignored everything ever about pre-election propriety to announce his reopening of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server, and...

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his obstruction inquiry into President Trump is like the TV show “Friends”: everybody’s got a favorite episode.
