Good Morning. It’s Wednesday, 8 March 2017, International Women’s Day, and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
Washington is dealing with more leaks. This time they are allegedly very serious and not from the White House or “informed sources” but from Wikileaks, which has released thousands of classified documents it claims are from the CIA. The CIA has yet to verify if the documents are in fact “real”; however, there is an investigation at the CIA to see how the documents, if authentic, were leaked. If real, the release of these documents could have serious national security implications. In the new digital world, it’s cyber warfare all the time.
Also in Washington: still no evidence from the White House about the claim that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower; a replacement bill for Obama care was announced and conservative Republicans in congress have already declared it D.O.A. Trump’s various appointments are still winding their way through Congressional hearings; the swamp, it appears, is not as easily drained as proclaimed. And Ben Carson, now a cabinet member, is clueless. Surprise, surprise.
