The director of national intelligence declassified two CIA documents this week regarding Hillary Clinton’s alleged role in approving a plan to link Donald Trump to Russia’s election meddling in 2016. John Brennan, the former CIA director, wrote in notes in late July 2016 that U.S. intelligence intercepted Russian analysis that asserted that Clinton had approved the plan. The intelligence underlying the documents remains classified, making it difficult to discern how the intelligence was collected and what it said about Clinton. A flurry of election-related developments occurred in late July 2016, including the release of emails hacked from the DNC and the FBI’s opening of Crossfire Hurricane. CIA documents declassified this week have stirred a partisan debate over whether Hillary Clinton authorized a plan in July 2016 to link Donald Trump to Russian hackers during the presidential campaign. John Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, approved the release … [Read more...] about CIA Documents Stir Debate Over Alleged Clinton Plan To Link Trump To Russia

By John Thelin , Special to The Washington Post Today’s college students and recent alumni often look wistfully to the 1960s. By today’s standards, the price of a college education at the time was amazingly low. A student applying to a state university that charged no tuition had total annual expenses ranging from $1,100 to $1,500, or the equivalent today of $9,460 to $12,900. By contrast, today’s state university students typically spend $30,000 per year on tuition and expenses. Even at elite private colleges, tuition in 1963 was a mere $1,760 — the equivalent today of $14,500 for tuition. That pales in comparison to what actual students pay in 2018: about $55,000 to $60,000 per year for an Ivy League undergraduate. But the situation for students looking to go to college in the 1960s wasn’t all good. While the decade witnessed an explosion in the number of young Americans who were able to go to college — the percentage of high school graduates continuing to a college … [Read more...] about Why college costs soared as more students enrolled

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey’s recreational marijuana market is now voter-approved and in effect under legislation signed last week by Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy. New Jersey residents voted by a 2-to-1 margin in November to join 14 other states and the District of Columbia with legal marijuana for recreational use. Only those 21 and older can legally possess and use the drug. But there are a lot of ins and outs to consider.
