Israel Successfully Hacked ISIS Computers; Trump Leaked It to the Russians, NYT Repor - NeoGAF

Quote
Quote
The source of the classified intelligence that U.S. President Donald Trump shared with Russian officials in May was information Israel obtained after hacking computers belonging to ISIS, the New York Times reported Monday.

 
Quote
According to the Times, which cited a U.S. official, Israeli "cyberoperators" managed to penetrate an ISIS cell of bombmakers based in Syria a number of months ago.

According to the report, the information was so good that it allowed the United States to learn that the terror cell was working on explosives that could fool airport security by passing as a laptop battery.

 
Quote
The intelligence was shared at a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak. The unnamed officials said Israel had previously urged the United States to be cautious with the information. The revelation that Trump shared sensitive intelligence with Russia raises the possibility that the information could be subsequently leaked to Iran.

 
Quote
In January, it was reported that Israeli intelligence officials were concerned that the exposure of classified information to their American counterparts in the Trump administration could lead to it being leaked to Russia and onward to Iran. The intelligence concerns, which had been discussed in closed forums, were based on suspicions of ties between Trump, or his associates, and the government of Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

Donald Trump Jr. released an email chain with a "Russia government attorney".  

Stocks dropped.

Can you give a brief summary of what's happening?

Can you give a brief summary of what's happening?
There wasn't much evidence of anything before. 
But Donald Trump Jr tweeted emails. 

Basically Trump Jr was offered a meeting with a "Russian government attorney".  At the meeting he was to be given evidence of dirt on Clinton; this was just after Trump won the Republican nomination.   

It's still an open question of how damaging this is. 
But apparently the FBI was not aware of this meeting.

Fox News Guest Says Confederate And Pride Flags Are ‘The Exact Same Thing’ - NeoGAF

"But you know what's really interesting and really incredible irony here is the same  people that are demanding that the Confederate flag comes down are the same people that are insisting that the rainbow flag goes up," she added. "These two flags  represent the exact same thing. That certain people groups are not welcome here. So if Nancy  Pelosi wants to say that we're going to start shutting down First Amendment rights of a certain group of people, then what happens the next time that the homosexuals want to walk through an American city and protest and counter protesters come out?"

Well they are both symbols of a movement. Its just one is about love and acceptance, and the other hate and segregation.

The first one says resist, the second one says impeach.  If you take the first letter of each paragraph.  

It seemed a little coincidental for the first one, but I doubt it for the second one.
