  • Russian hackers targeted Trump and Clinton campaigns, U.S. intelligence sources say

    Both Hillary Clinton’s and Donald Trump’s presidential campaigns have been targeted by hackers linked to Russian intelligence, according to U.S. intelligence sources, who describe a wide-ranging effort by Moscow to collect intelligence about the U.S. election — and possibly even influence it. Earlier on Tuesday, reports surfaced that state-sponsored hackers in Russia had penetrated the computer systems of the Democratic National Committee, seeking opposition-research files on Trump.

  • Trump: Obama ‘more angry at me’ than Orlando shooter

    Hours after President Obama condemned his “dangerous” rhetoric on Muslims and immigrants, Donald Trump mocked Obama as a “weak” president who is more upset with him than with the accused killer behind Sunday’s deadly massacre in Orlando. “I watched President Obama today, and he was more angry at me than he was at the shooter,” Trump said, referring to Omar Mateen, the Florida security guard accused of shooting 100 people, 49 of them fatally, at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. Speaking to a crowd of a few thousand people at his first public rally since the shootings, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said the United States was being led by “weak, ineffective people” and warned that attacks like the one in Orlando would happen again if the country does not take steps to close the borders to what he described as potential terrorists.

  • Anderson Cooper grills Florida AG over past opposition to LGBT rights

    A day after fighting back tears while reading the names of the 49 victims of the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, CNN’s Anderson Cooper challenged the state’s attorney general over her record on LGBT rights. On Tuesday, Cooper asked Bondi if such a statement was hypocritical, given her opposition to same-sex marriage before it became legal. The conversation soon became uncomfortable, as Cooper pressed her on the topic.

  • Obama: Trump’s ‘yapping’ about Islam helps ISIS

    By turns mocking, frustrated and angry, President Obama on Tuesday unleashed a blistering denunciation of Donald Trump, arguing that the presumptive Republican nominee’s rhetoric about Muslims betrays American values and risks helping al-Qaida and the so-called Islamic State. Obama’s remarks came a day after Trump charged that the president’s refusal to blame attacks like the mass shooting in Orlando on “radical Islam” proved he placed political correctness above the need to keep Americans safe. The president dismissed Trump’s argument as partisan “yapping,” “a political talking point” and “loose talk and sloppiness” that shows ignorance about how to fight the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.
