Robert Mueller’s Work Is Done. Now It’s Congress’s Turn

Robert Mueller proved Wednesday that he might just be the least cooperative friendly witness Congress has ever faced. During close to six hours of Mueller’s testimony before two committees, House Democrats learned the hard way that you can lead a special counsel to an impeachment hearing, but you can’t make him testify. The man who had spent the past two years leading the investigation of Russia’s attack on the 2016 election, and Donald Trump’s apparent obstruction of justice, had promised—warned, really—that he would not go beyond the four corners of the 448-page report he’d delivered earlier this spring. He lived up to that promise. “The report is my testimony,” he told both committees. He refused even to read aloud key …

Security News This Week: Myspace Employees Used to Spy on Users

As we approach the July Fourth holiday, the security world had no shortage of fireworks—starting with a hacker group, likely from China, that has spent years breaking into carriers in an effort to hoover up metadata from prime targets.

The recently released 448 pages, plus hundreds more of related supporting materials, that make up the Mueller Report are a first cut at the official record of these historic events. Partisan observers will take from the report what they brought to it proof of Donald Trumps high crimes and misdemeanors to his detractors, and no collusions, no obstructions in the eyes of his supporters. But there are facts, careful ones, not fake ones, that the report carefully lays out and documents, and they are important …

Rod Rosenstein Quits, Thanking the President Who Trolled Him

Rod Rosenstein is ready to jump. The deputy attorney general, who has run the Justice Departments day-to-day operations for most of the Trump presidency, submitted his resignation to the White House on Monday. The letter said he will stay on until May 11. In the letter, Rosenstein thanked President Donald Trumpwho once Special Counsel Robert Muellers Russia probe. Our nation is safer, our elections are more secure, and our citizens are better informed about covert foreign influence efforts and schemes to commit fraud, steal intellectual property, and launch cyberattacks, he wrote. Rosenstein also noted that he has served in that role for longer than most people who hold it. At the end of the letter, he discussed the importance of …
