GOP Rep. Steve King suggests George Soros' son is the whistleblower, which makes no sense

GOP Rep. Steve King suggests George Soros' son is the whistleblower, which makes no senseRep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is getting his conspiracy wires crossed.The congressmember is among the far-right crowd publicly speculating on the identity of the whistleblower who exposed President Trump's questionable Ukraine dealings, despite the fact that outing a whistleblower could put them in danger. Then again, King's Thursday guess of the whistleblower's identity couldn't be further from correct.In a since-deleted tweet, King cited Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who has repeatedly said he doesn't know the identity of the whistleblower. King then provided Schiff with "four strong clues" apparently revealing his perceived whistleblower with Hillary Clinton, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Except the man in all four pictures is Alexander Soros, the son of the billionaire liberal donor George Soros that Republicans detest so much.Not only does Soros have no job in the federal government nor any intelligence experience, but King fails to realize it would be very odd if Trump let one of his staunchest political enemies work for him in the White House.More stories from theweek.com The coming death of just about every rock legend The president has already confessed to his crimes Why are 2020 Democrats so weird?

The Latest: Officer says Miranda failure was a mistakeA police officer who obtained a confession from the suspect in the disappearance and death of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts says she made an honest mistake by initially failing to read him his legal rights. Officer Pamela Romero testified Wednesday that she tried to read Cristhian Bahena Rivera his Miranda warnings from memory during the Aug. 20, 2018, interrogation. After several more hours of questioning, Rivera led police officers to a cornfield where they discovered Tibbetts’ body underneath a stack of leaves and stalks.

Catapults, flaming arrows: Hong Kong protesters' medieval tech

Catapults, flaming arrows: Hong Kong protesters' medieval techWith wooden catapults to launch petrol bombs and bows and arrows pilfered from sports departments, Hong Kong's democracy protesters are combining new tactics with medieval tech as they battle police. As a rolling strike cripples the transport system of the famously frenetic city and fuels already intense clashes with police, hardcore protesters have bolstered their arsenal of Molotovs and bricks with an unlikely array of weapons. Chairs and mattresses have been pulled from college dorms for use as barricades or shields against increasingly heavy barrages of police rubber bullets.

Russia blames fatal plane crash on pilots, including one who lied to get license

Russia blames fatal plane crash on pilots, including one who lied to get licenseA plane crash that killed all 50 people on board at Russia's Kazan Airport in 2013 was the result of errors made by two pilots, including one who got his license using falsified documents, Russian investigators said on Thursday. The Boeing 737-500 aircraft was operated by the now-defunct Tatarstan Airlines, which later had its license revoked by Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsiya. The plane from Moscow had been trying to abort its landing when it nose-dived into the runway and burst into flames.
