The U.S. Department of Justice may be planning to bring criminal charges against anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange, according to numerous reports.

Sources with knowledge of the matter, who reportedly spoke with CNN and The Washington Post, claim the case surrounds numerous leaks such as recent documents on the CIA’s hacking abilities as well as military files leaked by Chelsea Manning back in 2010.

Robert Gehl reports that the failed missile test in North Korea may have been an act of sabotage by the United States government.

A former British Foreign Secretary is telling the BBC that American intelligence used cyber warfare before to thwart North Korean missile test and that there is a “strong belief” that the Trump Administration was behind the regime’s failed launch.

UPDATE: ISIS claims responsibility.

In the moments following President Trump’s Thursday press conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, MSNBC and its myriad of panelists swiftly condemned Trump for referring to the deadly shooting in Paris on the Champs-Élysées as a terrorist attack.

China supported the condemnation of North Korea.

Last week I blogged about how Kremlin TV declared President Donald Trump is more dangerous than North Korea. Well, on Wednesday, Russia showed more support for North Korea, but this time at the UN while China supported the statement.

Terrorist Attack In Paris [Updated]

Written by

A little while ago, at least two men armed with Kalashnikovs attacked two Parisian police officers who reportedly were stopped at a light on the Champs-Élysées. They shot both officers. One was killed on the spot, the other died shortly later of his wounds.

Appearing on MSNBC in the 3 p.m. ET hour on Thursday, during breaking news coverage of a shooting along the Champs Elysees in Paris, Daily Beast World News Editor Christopher Dickey was more worried by the prospect of France’s “very far-right party” using the incident as an issue in the nation’s upcoming presidential election than he was with the welfare of people caught up in the violence.

WikiLeaks published documents about CIA’s hacking operations in March.

CBS News has reported that the FBI and CIA have started an investigation to find the person who provided WikiLeaks with secret documents.

UPDATE: Second police officer dead in Paris, other assailants on the run, shots fired in different location.

France has been hit with yet another terror attack just days before the first round of the country’s presidential election takes place.

New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters hinted on Thursday's Morning Joe that Fox News's Sean Hannity be fired next after the network showed anchor Bill O'Reilly the door, Wednesday, in response to sexual harassment allegations.

The awkwardness for viewers of MSNBC’s The 11th Hour on Wednesday had to have been through the roof as host Brian Williams tried to tiptoe his way through covering Bill O’Reilly’s axing from the Fox News Channel.
