House Judiciary Committee schedules hearing on police conduct - Lauren French

The House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing later this month focused on police accountability and attacks on law enforcement after a week of protests in Baltimore following the death of a black man in police custody.
A Judiciary Committee aide confirmed the hearing, which was scheduled after Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican, met with Michigan Rep. John Conyers, the top Democrat on the panel, on Friday morning.

“Tragic news reports of excessive force by law enforcement and attacks on police officers have raised our nation’s conscience about how law enforcement interacts with our nation’s citizens,” Goodlatte said in a statement on Friday. “In the coming weeks, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing so we can work together to ensure the safety of our communities, our citizens and those charged with protecting them.”
The hearing will give lawmakers a chance to discuss topics covered by a sweeping criminal justice reform bill that would mandate new training standards for police officers and stricter reporting requirements for deaths that occur in police custody. Conyers is still writing the bill and is expected to introduce it soon.
“Our country has been plagued by unrest due to a series of tragic incidents related to police-involved violence. In far too many cases, we have experienced situations that are further dividing communities and law enforcement,” Conyers said in a statement. “I am pleased that we will be having a hearing to examine this national crisis impacting the nation and look forward to working with Chairman Goodlatte on these critical issues.”
The Michigan Democrat has been a longtime advocate of legislation to retrain and reform local law enforcement — an issue that was thrust into the public spotlight after unarmed black men were killed by police in Ferguson, Missouri, New York City and Charleston, South Carolina.
More recently, 25-year-old Freddie Gray suffered a catastrophic neck injury while in police custody in Baltimore and died a few days later.

A Bill’s Surveillance Limits - NYTimes.com

Bipartisan legislation passed by the House Judiciary Committee would reauthorize mass surveillance programs revealed by the former National Security Agency contractor Edward J. Snowden, but impose new limits on them. Although it does not limit the government’s authority to collect information overseas, including data on telephone and email records, if passed the bill would:
■ Prohibit bulk collection by the government of “metadata” from domestic and international telephone records in the United States — meaning the numbers called and received and the length of the calls. That function would shift to the telecommunications providers, who would give access to the government only with an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
■ Prohibit large-scale, indiscriminate collection of phone records of other types, including all records from an entire state, city or ZIP code.
■ Allow a business, such as an Internet provider, to challenge orders that it not disclose or discuss national security letters from the government demanding information about calls and subscribers.
■ Create a panel of outside advocates to provide guidance on civil liberties and to challenge the government’s pleadings before the foreign intelligence court.
■ Require that all “significant” interpretations of surveillance law by the foreign intelligence court be made public.
■ Require that the attorney general and the director of national intelligence make public detailed information about how they use their national security authorities.
■ Allow the government to keep tracking suspected foreign terrorists when they enter the United States for 72 hours before obtaining a warrant.
■ Increase the mandatory minimum sentence for material support of terrorism to 20 years from 15.
■ Allow the use of surveillance technology in the United States in a national security emergency, with some limits.

FBI: More million-dollar gold bars, stolen in highway heist, may be in Miami

1 Share
It’s not exactly Fort Knox — not even close.
But an acre-sized white building in an Opa-locka industrial district boasts of being among the largest precious-metal refineries in the world.
And now, Republic Metals Corp. finds itself the victim of a gold-bar heist pulled off on a North Carolina highway that the FBI confirmed has a “South Florida nexus.”
One of the stolen bars — weighing 26 pounds and valued at about a half-million dollars — was recovered in South Florida last month, said the FBI, without elaborating.
How it ended up in the Miami area, one of the hubs for the nation’s gold trade, is a mystery.
“We believe that additional gold bars from the robbery may still be in South Florida,” FBI Supervisory Special Agent Justin Fleck said, seeking the public’s assistance as the agency offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and charges.
This is how the robbery unfolded:
On a Sunday morning in early March, a Miami-based armored truck courier picked up a total of 275 pounds of gold worth about $5 million, and headed north on Interstate 95 to a shipping destination in Boston, according to the FBI and North Carolina investigators. But that evening, as the TransValue couriers stopped along a dark stretch of the highway, three armed robbers pulled up in a white minivan and confronted them at gunpoint, yelling “Policía!”
The two courier guards exited the tractor-trailer without their guns. The robbers gave instructions in Spanish, tied the guards’ hands behind their backs and led them into nearby woods. The thieves cut the padlock on the truck’s trailer and offloaded five-gallon buckets that contained 10 gold bars. They put them in their van and fled.
The guards were left stranded along I-95 in a rural area about 50 miles east of Raleigh, N.C. The uniformed men attracted the attention of motorists who reported seeing them run into the highway as they motioned for help with their hands bound.
Investigators with the Wilson County Sheriff's Office said the March 1 heist “could be an inside job.”
“The fact that the truck was robbed immediately upon it pulling over at an unannounced stop is suspicious in and of itself,” a sheriff’s detective wrote in search warrants for the truck and the drivers’ cellphones. “It is also suspicious because there [were] no markings on the side of the truck that would indicate the type of cargo contained [inside].
“The suspects went directly to the trailer and found the gold, which was in unmarked five-gallon buckets,” the warrants said. “It is not believed that this is a random act due to the nature and facts of this robbery.”
Detectives noted that the robbers even put out orange cones near the truck as they unloaded the gold bars into their van.
At a press conference after the heist, Wilson County Sheriff Calvin Woodard would not commit to the theory that it was an inside job and said the guards were considered victims, not suspects.
Woodard disclosed that the two guards had stopped for gas in Dillon, South Carolina, near the North Carolina line, around dusk that Sunday. The sheriff said one of them started to feel sick from gas fumes. They pulled over so the guard could vomit.
That was when the robbers drove up in the minivan and confronted them. The guards exited their tractor-trailer without their guns. Woodard noted that it was a violation of their company’s security rules to leave the truck without their weapons.
The suspects tried to steal the truck but did not know how to operate it, according to sheriff’s warrants. They tied up the guards before hauling away the gold bars.
After sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene of the heist, a mechanic found no problem with the truck, including a possible gas leak.
“The cause for the stop is still under investigation,” according to an FBI press release.
One curious aspect of the gold-bar heist: The robbers left behind $5 million worth of silver on the tractor-trailer, according to the sheriff’s office warrants. The silver shipment, which weighed about 75 times more than the gold haul, was probably too heavy to steal. The silver load also belonged to Republic Metals, the warrants said.
Neither guard was injured in the robbery. TransValue, which specializes in transporting cash, precious metals, gems and jewelry and carries shipment insurance up to $100 million, offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
An executive for the company, Jesus Rodriguez Jr., did not return a call or email for comment on Friday.
Republic Metals, founded by Richard Rubin in 1980, declined to comment, referring calls to its attorney, Alan Silverstein, who did not respond to a Miami Herald interview request on Friday.
The North Carolina gold heist is only the latest in which Republic Metals was a victim.
Last year, federal authorities arrested a man in Belize who was accused of stealing $2.8 million worth of gold in Coral Gables.
Raonel Valdez Valhuerdis, 35, was accused of directing the stick-up of a courier for a Bolivia-based export company, Quri Wasi, which buys gold from small businesses in La Paz, then melts it down and sells it to South Florida refineries.
Investigators said that in October 2012, Valdez Valhuerdis and two other men accosted the courier in an elevator of a Coral Gables apartment building and stole two rolling suitcases filled with 110 pounds of gold flakes bound for Republic Metals.
The gold was to be melted down, then resold for jewelry or electronic parts.
Anyone who has information on the North Carolina gold-bar heist or identity of the robbers is urged to call the FBI at 754-703-2000 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.

FBI replies to Stingray Freedom of Information request with 5,000 blank pages

1 Share

The Stingray -- a fake cellphone tower that gathers identity/location information on everyone who passes it -- is the worst-kept secret in law enforcement, but that doesn't stop feds from going to absurd lengths to pretend they don't use them.
We know that police departments have to sign non-disclosure agreements when they buy Stingrays, and we've even seen them lie to judges about how they acquired their evidence to maintain their non-disclosure obligations. We've seen US Marshalls raid city cops to steal Stingray evidence before it could be introduced in court (even more dismaying -- it worked, and the case against the cops collapsed because the evidence had been disappeared down the Marshalls' memory hole).
Since 2014, Muckrock has been firing out Freedom of Information Act requests about Stingrays to agencies at all levels of government, using crowdfunded dough to pay for it.
The fun-loving feds at the FBI have turned over 5,000 pages of Stingray records in response to one set of Muckrock requests -- but they redacted virtually every word on every page first.
That's not to say there's nothing of interest left intact. A few pages explain the FBI's legal rationale for IMSI catcher deployment -- including the fact that the Patriot Act expanded the reach of pen register orders to include not just numbers dialed, but also the location of the phone itself. This allows the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to route around one of CALEA's (Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act) few limitations related to pen register orders: that service providers not be required to hand over subscriber location info.

‘It’s Ridiculous and Enough Is Enough’: Fed-Up Former FBI Official Chews Out Baltimore Protesters for ‘Basically Advocating Anarchy’ | Video

Tom Fuentes, a former FBI assistant director and former police officer, chewed out Baltimore protesters and city officials during an on-camera interview at a rally Saturday.

“For the last two hours I have listened to this screaming over here in front of several thousand people,” Fuentes told CNN’s Poppy Harlow. “They’re not saying some police are good, some are bad, let’s work together in the community and fix the problems we have.
“They are saying all police are bad, everybody that’s been locked up is good and should be released right now, and basically advocating anarchy in a town that averages five black kids being murdered a week … and the whole crowd is buying it and cheering it on. And I just think it’s ridiculous and enough is enough.”
After Harlow asked Fuentes how it might change, he said Baltimore officials need to work together — adding in no uncertain terms that it hasn’t happened nearly enough considering who’s in charge.
“You have a black mayor, a black commissioner of police, 50 percent of the department is black, the last commissioner was black,” Fuentes pointed out. “Now if they can’t work together to try to fix what’s going on in this town and do something about the unbelievably high crime rate here and murder rate in Baltimore, then I don’t know, I think it’s almost going to be hopeless …”
He added that the protest going on around him was an example of what’s wrong in the city, saying that “nothing about working together” was emphasized; rather “it’s ranting and raving, advocating anarchy, and it’s wrong.”
Check out the full interview here:
And Fuentes wasn’t done. He was interviewed Sunday on CNN and went off again, eviscerating protesters and city officials for what he heard the day before.

‘Well known by FBI’: Suspect in Garland shooting ID’d as Elton Simpson; Update

1 Share
ABC News is reporting this morning that one of the two gunman shot last night in Garland, Texas has been identified as Elton Simpson, a many previously investigated by the FBI for links to terrorism:
One of the suspects in the shooting in Garland, Texas late Sunday has been identified as Elton Simpson, an Arizona man who was previously the subject of a terror investigation, according to a senior FBI official.
Overnight and today FBI agents and a bomb squad were at Simpson’s home in an apartment complex in north Phoenix where a robot is believed to be conducting an initial search of the apartment.
Officials believe Simpson is the person who sent out several Twitter messages prior to the attack on Sunday, in the last one using the hashtag #TexasAttack about half an hour before the shooting.
And…
Simpson was well known to the FBI. Five years ago he was convicted for lying to federal agents about his plans to travel to Africa, but a judge ruled the government did not adequately prove he was going to join a terror group there.
***
Update. The Volokh Conspiracy wrote about Elton Simpson in 2011:
… The problem … is that the Government has not established with the requisite level of proof, that the Defendant’s potential travel to Somalia (and his false statement about his discussions regarding his travels) was sufficiently “related” to international terrorism. Rather, the Government missed several steps to meeting its burden for establishing this charge. As a result, the Court cannot find the Defendant eligible for the sentence enhancement….

The US opens up on its use of phone surveillance hardware

1 Share
It seems as if we're not alone in thinking that America's spies may have trodden on a few too manycivil liberties of late. That's why senior officials at the Justice Department are calling for a wide-ranging review of electronic surveillance practices and will open up a little bit about why, and when, this technology is used. A report by the Wall Street Journal reveals that there's a big push for greater transparency, but no-one's quite sure on how many beans they should spill in order to restore public trust but not give helpful hints to criminals.
Ever since the 
Snowden leaks
, the public have been exposed to a constant stream of revelations about how authorities 
use technology to spy upon us
. For instance, the ACLU found that 
stingray devices
 were used 47 times by police in 
Erie County, New York
, but only got the court's permission once. For those not in the know, a stingray is a fake cellphone tower that sucks up all the mobile traffic in the immediate region, making them perfect for spying on a city block's residents at the same time.

The paper cites an example from Baltimore, where officers are normally required to obtain a court order to get a person's cellphone details. However, there's also a shortcut if the information is time sensitive, enabling them to request from the 
phone company
 directly under the auspices of it being an emergency. You'll win no prizes for guessing which process is more frequently used, with one anonymous source describing a deluge of requests along the emergency back door channel.

The road to restoring the public's trust will be a long one, but there are some reasons to be optimistic, at least. The paper has noted that the FBI is no longer simply snatching people's information without permission, but is now submitting requests for search warrants to Judges. That should provide some much-needed oversight to what has previously been an unsupervised process, and let's just hope that some more agencies remember to abide by due process.

Dean Skelos, New York Senate Leader, and Son Are Arrested on Corruption Charges

1 Share
Dean G. Skelos, the leader of the New York State Senate, and his son were arrested on Monday morning by federal authorities on extortion, fraud and bribe solicitation charges, expanding the corruption investigation that has already changed the face of Albany.
Mr. Skelos, 67, and his son, Adam B. Skelos, 32, surrendered at the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s New York office in Lower Manhattan at about 9:30 a.m.
The charges against them were detailed in a six-count criminal complaint filed in United States District Court in Manhattan that details a five-year scheme to “monetize” the senator’s official position by extorting payments through a Long Island-based real estate developer and from an Arizona environmental company, with the expectation that the money paid to Adam Skelos — nearly $220,000 in total — would influence his father’s actions.
The investigation, which made use of secretly recorded conversations and wiretaps, revealed how the senator and his son were concerned about electronic surveillance, and illustrated the son’s unsuccessful efforts to thwart it.
The case grew out of a broad federal investigation focused on the younger man’s business dealings, some of which were reported last month by The New York Times, including payments to Adam Skelos by an Arizona environmental company, AbTech Industries.
The complaint accused Senator Skelos, a Long Island Republican, with taking official actions to benefit AbTech and the real estate developer, Glenwood Management, one of the state’s most prolific campaign donors, which itself had financial ties to AbTech. Senator Skelos agreed to do so, according to the complaint, as long as the companies paid his son. Neither company was named in the complaint.
AbTech made payments to Adam Skelos over the course of several years, according to the complaint. When the company was close to receiving a Nassau County contract that the senator was pushing behind the scenes, Adam Skelos told a cooperating witness that his father believed his compensation should be increased, and that if it was not, they would seek to block the contract. The county awarded the contract, worth as much as $12 million, in 2013; Adam Skelos’s monthly installments jumped to $10,000 from $4,000.
But it seems clear from one secretly recorded conversation cited in the 43-page complaint that the increase in compensation had little to do with Adam Skelos’s environmental expertise. In the conversation, recorded in February 2015 by a senior AbTech official after he began cooperating with investigators, Mr. Skelos acknowledged that he became a consultant for the company even though he “literally knew nothing about water or, you know, any of that stuff.”
A senior executive at Glenwood, who was deeply involved in the company’s political activities and campaign contributions, was also cooperating with federal authorities, according to the complaint.
In a statement, Senator Skelos said, “I am innocent of the charges leveled against me. I am not saying I am just not guilty, I am saying that I am innocent. I fully expect to be exonerated by a public jury trial.”
Adam Skelos’s lawyer, Christopher P. Conniff, said earlier on Monday that he would comment on the charges later in the day; the senator’s lawyer, G. Robert Gage Jr., could not immediately be reached for comment.
The charges were announced at a news conference by the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, and the head of the New York F.B.I. office, Diego Rodriguez. The senator and his son were expected in federal court later on Monday.
The case against Senator Skelos, who was first elected to the Senate in 1984, signals a significant widening of a federal corruption investigation focused on Albany, and will almost certainly throw the legislative session into further chaos. It comes roughly three months after federal bribery and kickback charges led Assemblyman Sheldon Silver, a Democrat, to step down from his post as speaker.
It is not known if Mr. Skelos, who has led the Senate Republicans since 2008, will resign his leadership role but he is sure to face difficult questions from within his own ranks about his ability to lead while fighting criminal charges.
Mr. Skelos’s legislative colleagues were scheduled to return to Albany on Monday for the legislative session, and news of his arrest will almost certainly prove to be a distraction from the business of running the state.
The two men were each charged with two counts of extortion under the color of official right and two counts of solicitation of bribes and gratuities, with one count of each crime alleged in relation to Glenwood and one each in relation to AbTech. Both men are also charged with conspiracy to commit extortion and conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

FBI Issues $3 million Bounty for Russian Hacker

1 Share
A $3 million reward for information on the FBI's most wanted cyber criminal was issued in Washington yesterday.
31-year-old Evgeniy Mikhailovich Bogachev is alleged to have coordinated the GameOver ZeuS botnet, which installed malware onto victims' computers and collected personal information including PIN numbers and bank account details. The programme secretly logged keystrokes on passwords and launched malicious websites where victims entered sensitive information.
The malware is alleged to have infected one million computers, and resulted in the theft of more than $100 million from businesses and consumers in the U.S. and worldwide.
Bogachev, who was last known to live in the Russian town of Anapa on the Black Sea's north coast, was indicted in May 2014 by a Pennsylvania court on charges of conspiracy, computer fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud and money laundering. He was first indicted in Nebraska in 2012 under his online alias 'lucky12345'.
FBI assistant director Joseph Demarest said: "This was a worldwide infection, but it also had law enforcement worldwide working to combat it and bring to justice the criminal organisation behind it."
Bogachev is also alleged to be the administrator of the ransomware Cryptolocker, which first appeared in 2013. The programme encrypted files on Windows computers and would only unlock them once the victims had paid a fee. Forbes reported that Cryptolocker earned $27 million in ransom payments in its first two months of operation.
The FBI's wanted poster says that Bogachev enjoys boating and may be travel to locations along the Black Sea. He is the most valuable suspect by some distance on the FBI's cyber list. Romanian Nicolae Popescu has a $1 million price on his head, the second highest behind Bogachev.
The GameOver Zeus malware was a bot programme. According to Finnish online security firm F-Secure, bots are a type of malware which are planted on host machines and allow attackers to remotely control the devices. Infected machines are known as 'bots' or 'zombies'.
