US Navy Officer Arrested for Spying for China

The Spy v Spy game never stops…

Active duty U.S. Navy officer charged with spying

A U.S. Navy commander has been charged with espionage and attempted espionage, and communicating defense information to a foreign nation, CBS News has learned.

The officer, whose name is redacted from the charging document, was charged with two counts of espionage, three counts of attempted espionage and five counts of communicating defense information.

Charging documents assert that the commander shared secret information relating to U.S. national defense to a representative of a foreign government.

The commander was also charged with one count of prostitution and one count of adultery.

The U.S. Naval Institute (USNI) reports that several sources familiar with the case said the country to which the commander passed secrets was China.

USNI also reports the commander was Lt. Cmdr. Edward C. Lin, who served on some of the Navy’s most sensitive intelligence gathering aircraft. USNI reports Lin was a Taiwanese national before his family moved to the U.S. One source confirms to CBS News the name of the officer is Lt. Cmdr. Edward Lin.

An Article 32 hearing was held on Friday, April 8.

The investigation is being conducted jointly by the FBI and NCIS.

The last notorious case of a Navy officer spying happened in the 1980s.

John Anthony Walker worked as a Soviet spy while serving as communications specialist for the U.S. Navy.

He led a ring that delivered key information to the Soviet Union from 1967 until 1985. Walker’s covert dealings made it possible for the Soviets to unscramble military communications and find U.S. submarines at any time.

He had already retired as a Navy officer when arrested in 1985. Other members of his ring included his sailor son Michael, his brother Arthur James Walker, who also served in the Navy, and his friend Jerry Alfred Whitworth, who trained in the Navy’s satellite communications. Though Walker is thought to have won a high military rank from the Russians, he also became a member of the Ku Klux Klan and the John Birch Society.

Many believe that John Walker’s actions were the biggest security breach of the Cold War. Once arrested, Walker would only agree to plead guilty if his son was granted leniency for his minor involvement. Walker was given three life sentences, and died in prison in 2014.

Trump Campaign Manager Arrested

The Trump Thugs are going down. Donald Trump’s National Campaign Manager’s mugging of a female reporter has earned him a visit to the Police Station with a charges of assault.

Trump Campaign Manager Charged With Battery Of Reporter He Called ‘Delusional’

Corey Lewandowski turned himself in to police early Tuesday.

Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was charged with battery Tuesday following an incident in which he allegedly grabbed a reporter, Michelle Fields, at a campaign event earlier this month.

Lewandowski turned himself in to police Tuesday morning in Jupiter, Florida, where he was charged with misdemeanor battery.

Trump and Lewandowski have repeatedly denied that the campaign manager grabbed Fields, and Lewandowski has called Fields “delusional.”

Fields released a photo of her arm with a series of finger-shaped bruises. And newly released video footage appears to show Lewandowski reaching over and roughly grabbing Fields at the Jupiter event, nearly throwing her off balance.

The video suggests that Lewandowski was lying when he attacked Fields’ credibility and accused her of seeking attention. This is a tactic Trump himself has popularized, through vicious and personal attacks on journalists like Megyn Kelly and Jorge Ramos.

Fields resigned from Breitbart News shortly after the incident, because she said the news outlet failed to publicly stand by her.

The Trump campaign responded to the charges Tuesday morning, telling reporters that Lewandowski will plead not guilty and that he intends to fight the charges.

Lewandowski will be represented by two defense lawyers. One of them is Kendall Coffey, a former U.S. attorney who was forced to resign that post in 1996 after he was accused of biting a stripper in Miami.

More Trump Supporters Charged and Arrested for Assault

This one turns out to be a Trump hired goon…Looks like a Felony to me.

Sixty-seven-year-old Linda Rothman was also charged for a separate incident with details not fully yet known.

Trump supporters charged with assault for rally attacks

A Donald Trump campaign supporter seen on video sucker-punching and then stomping on a prone protester at a rally in Tucson has been charged with misdemeanor assault.

Officials say 32-year-old Tony Pettway was released at the scene and will have to appear in court.

In addition to Pettway, 67-year-old Linda Rothman was charged with misdemeanor assault for an incident at the rally in the Tucson Convention Center on Saturday, although details of that incident are unclear.

Pettway’s attack was captured on multiple videos, showing him ripping the sign out of the hand of a protester being escorted away from him and then punching the man. After the victim is on the ground, Pettway then repeatedly kicks him.

CBS affiliate KOLD in Tucson reports the victim’s name is Bryan Sanders.

“I was being escorted out of the building, I had that in my right hand a peace sign up,” Sanders said. “A guy grabbed the sign out of my right hand and sucker punched me. Then he go to top of me and hit me several more times.”

Amateur video from earlier in the rally appears to show Sanders accompanying a woman who was wearing a hood in the style of the Ku Klux Klan, as she makes what appears to be a Nazi-style salute. It appears the sign Sanders was carrying was a picture of Trump with the Confederate flag superimposed on top.

Black Officer Charged in Dallas Shooting in 3 Days

Wow! It seems the Officers of the Law can be held accountable…If they are black or Asian.

Only took 3 days for the DA to file charges!

Why does this take so long in other places?

Farmers Branch officer charged with murder in off-duty shooting of Dallas teen

Officer Ken Johnson

In a move rarely seen in shootings involving police, an off-duty Farmers Branch officer has been charged with murder three days after fatally shooting a teenager and wounding another.

Officer Ken Johnson, 35, was arrested Wednesday night in the death of Jose Cruz, the Dallas 16-year-old who was shot after an “altercation” Sunday evening in Addison.

Johnson was also charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the shooting of Cruz’s classmate, Edgar Rodriguez, who is expected to survive.

“We had probable cause to make the arrest this evening,” Addison Police Chief Paul Spencer said in a written statement. “But this is a rapidly evolving situation, and it remains an active investigation.”

Johnson used a semi-automatic pistol to shoot Cruz and Rodriguez, according to an affidavit obtained by WFAA (Channel 8). Officers who were dispatched to the 14300 block of Marsh Lane found Johnson standing in the roadway, the affidavit states.

“It was further determined that Cruz’s death was caused by being intentionally shot by Johnson with a firearm,” the affidavit states.

Dallas County judges, however, sealed many of the warrants that were issued related to the case — including Johnson’s arrest warrants and multiple search warrants.

Cruz’s Dodge Challenger, Johnson’s Chevrolet Tahoe and data recorders from both vehicles were some of the items seized, court records say.

Authorities also obtained search warrants Wednesday — also sealed — for video from a business located near the shooting. It is unclear whether the video shows Johnson shooting the teens.

Spencer, the Addison police chief, said Wednesday that he expects several more weeks of investigation. An internal affairs inquiry by the Farmers Branch Police Department is ongoing.

Johnson’s attorney, Chris Livingston, questioned why the charges were filed without the case being presented to a grand jury. It “can only be explained by the fact that my client is a black police officer.”…Read The Rest Here...

Baltimore School Officers Arrested Over Teen Smackdown

Yeah…It looks bad…But…

2 Baltimore School Officers Arrested in Assault on Teenager

Two police officers for the Baltimore schools have been arrested after the release of a cellphone video showing one of them slapping and kicking a teenager while the second officer stood by.

One officer, Anthony Spence, 44, was charged with second-degree assault, second-degree child abuse by a custodian and misconduct in office in the episode, which occurred March 1, according to a statement by the Baltimore police. Officer Spence posted bond and was released Wednesday.

The second officer, Saverna Bias, was charged with second-degree assault and misconduct in office. She also posted bond and was released, according to court records.

In the video, an officer, who was later identified as Officer Spence, can be seen slapping and kicking the teenager.

Officer Spence acknowledged in a conversation with The Associated Press on Friday that he was the subject of a criminal investigation into the actions captured on cellphone video last week at the Reach! Partnership School.

“Right now I’m the bad guy,” he said. He referred questions to his lawyer, Michael Davey, who did not immediately respond to a phone call Wednesday morning.

The school district has its own police force separate from city police. The Baltimore City Police began a criminal investigation into the incident at the school after the eight-second clip surfaced.

School officials initially said that the officers had responded to a reported intruder, and that the young man in the video was not a student. On Friday, the school system said in a statement that he was “believed to be a student on the school’s roster.” The young man’s lawyer, Lauren Geisser, says he is a 10th-grader.

On Monday, the chief executive of Baltimore City Schools, Gregory Thornton, met with parents to discuss the video and said he would review training and selection of school police officers.

Bill Cosby Charged With Rape

It is not like you couldn’t see this coming after the Cosby lawsuit last week against his accusers.

Bill Cosby charged with sexually assaulting Pennsylvania woman in 2004

For the first time, Bill Cosby will face criminal charges in connection with an accusation of sexual assault, Montgomery County prosecutors in Pennsylvania announced on Wednesday.

Prosecutors charged Cosby with aggravated indecent assault, a felony, First Assistant District Attorney Kevin Steele said in a morning press conference. The single charge stems from an alleged sexual assault in early 2004.

“Today, after examination of all the evidence, we are able to seek justice on behalf of the victim,” Steele said. The charges were filed thanks to new information uncovered in July, Steele said, noting that the incident remains within the 12-year statute of limitations.

The felony charge came at the conclusion of a second investigation into allegations that the comedian drugged and assaulted former Temple University employee Andrea Constand 12 years ago.  Constand first accused Cosby of assaulting her in 2005. At the time, prosecutors declined to press charges.

On the evening in question, Mr. Cosby urged her to take pills that he provided her and to drink wine, the effect of which rendered her unable to move,” Steele said to reporters, later saying the pills rendered the victim “frozen,” and  “paralyzed.” That was when Cosby allegedly committed aggravated indecent assault, the first degree felony for which he was charged on Wednesday…

Prescription Rip-Off Artist Arrested and Charged With Securities Fraud

Martin Shkreli is a rip-off artist, who made money most lately by buying the rights to to certain prescription medications, and the raising the price of those medications to astronomical levels. It seems he also has quite a history in investment fraud.

The DOJ is fitting Martin Shkreli for a well earned Orange Jumpsuit

CEO Who Price Gouged HIV Drug Arrested

Martin Shkreli was arrested by the FBI in New York on securities fraud

Martin Shkreli, a lightning rod for growing outrage over soaring prescription drug prices, was arrested in New York by the FBI on Thursday on securities fraud charges involving his former hedge fund and a pharmaceutical company he previously headed.

Shkreli, who is now chief executive officer of Turing Pharmaceuticals and KaloBios Pharmaceuticals Inc, was charged in a federal indictment related to his time managing hedge fund MSMB Capital Management and heading biopharmaceutical company Retrophin Inc.

The indictment, filed in Brooklyn, New York, also charged Evan Greebel, a former partner at law firm Katten Muchin Rosenmann who was Retrophin’s outside counsel.

Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Robert Capers is scheduled to hold a press conference with officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission at noon EST (1700 GMT) to announce the charges, his office said.

Reuters witnessed Shkreli’s arrest at the Murray Hill Tower Apartments in midtown Manhattan. Law enforcement including Federal Bureau of Investigation agents could be seen escorting Shkreli, who was wearing a hoodie, into a car.

FBI spokeswoman Kelly Langmesser confirmed the arrests of Shkreli and Greebel.

Shares of KaloBios fell 53 percent at $11.03 in the premarket before trading in them was halted. Retrophin, which said in a statement that it had fully cooperated with the government investigations of Shkreli, was nearly unchanged in early trading.

Turing and KaloBios declined to comment. A lawyer for Shkreli did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Efforts to reach Greebel were not immediately successful, and a lawyer could not be immediately identified.

A privately held startup, Turing sparked controversy earlier this year after news reports that it had raised the price of Daraprim, a 62-year-old treatment for a dangerous parasitic infection, to $750 a tablet from $13.50 after acquiring it.

The charges predate Turing and relate to Shkreli’s management of New York-based hedge fund MSMB Capital Management, whose closure he announced in 2012, and his time as CEO of Retrophin from 2012 to 2014.

The indictment said Shkreli made false representations to MSMB investors to draw in $3 million in investments.

After MSMB suffered devastating trading losses in 2011 and ceased trading, Shkreli for months sent fabricated updates to investors touting profits of as high as 40 percent since inception, the indictment said.

He also solicited $5 million from investors for another fund, MSMB Healthcare Management LP, while concealing his performance managing MSMB Capital and a prior fund and providing investors an inflated valuation of his then-private firm Retrophin, the indictment said.

To pay back the MSMB funds’ investors, Shkreli and Greebel misappropriated $11 million in Retrophin assets through settlement agreements and sham consulting deals, according to the indictment.

The case mirrors a lawsuit Retrophin filed in August against Shkreli in federal court in Manhattan for $65 million, claiming he had used his control over Retrophin to enrich himself and pay off MSMB investors’ claims.

Shkreli has denied the allegations.

The case is separate from the ongoing drug pricing controversy that had in recent weeks enveloped Shkreli and Turing Pharmaceuticals.

At least two separate Congressional probes have been launched since September on the pricing issues of Daraprim, which had long been available as a generic drug used to treat toxoplasmosis in AIDS patients. Turing is under investigation by the New York state attorney general for antitrust concerns.

At a Senate hearing on drug pricing last week, a doctor who treats babies with life-threatening toxoplasmosis testified that a course of treatment with Daraprim went from about $1,200 to no less than $69,000.
