@Reuters: BREAKING NEWS: Swedish lawyers ask court to overturn Julian Assange's arrest warrant


Julian Assange: Swedish lawyers ask court to overturn arrest warrant against Wikileaks founder

Lawyers have made a formal request to a Swedish court to overturn Julian Assange's arrest warrant in a rape case.

The journalist has spent more than three years hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy in London after his appeal against extradition failed in the UK courts.

Thomas Olsson, one of Assange's lawyers, said in a statement: "We consider that there have arisen a number of new circumstances which mean there is reason to review the earlier decision".

46% In and Hillary is leading by about 150.

Legitimate Question: Why in hell is she doing so bad?

Former First Lady.

Former Senator.

Former Secretary of State.

Another virtual tie.


ON EDIT: Since people were confused by the Guardian's (and the WaPo's) terminology: "Vote totals for the Nevada Democratic Party are county convention delegates won by each candidate."

Upon Harper Lee's Passing, Berkeley Breathed Shares Her Fan Letter to Him


Bloomers: Many, but not all of you, know that in the way that creative life can often surprise, Harper Lee was one of you. One of us. You might be as surprised as I am that she played a large role in my recent return to the streets of Bloom County-- streets inspired by those of Maycomb. When I retired Opus from the Sunday comics some years ago, Harper let me know her displeasure, with all the southern, gracious elegance we knew her for. See the letter below. I've waited until her passing to show it. We came to exchange many similar notes... including one in which she grudgingly forgives me for my retirement (irony alert). Imagine my 14 year-old self -- freshly savoring the first reading of Mockingbird and sending Miss Lee a fan letter in 1970 -- being told about another fan letter returning my way almost 40 years distant. Life is wonderful and strange and wistful and happy at the same time. And I'm happy to share this with all of you today.

Harper Lee - A Life...

Rep. Barbara Lee: ‘Clear firewall’ between Congressional Black Caucus and PAC backing Clinton


Rep. Barbara Lee: ‘Clear firewall’ between Congressional Black Caucus and PAC backing Clinton

11 FEB 2016 AT 19:49 ET

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) emphasized in an interview on Thursday that Hillary Clinton’s endorsement by the Congressional Black Caucus PAC does not constitute one from the caucus itself.

“The Congressional Black Caucus PAC is a PAC that supports candidates,” Lee told Democracy Now host Amy Goodman. “It raises money, and it helps candidates win elections. And there’s a clear distinction between that—as I said earlier, we have a Republican in the Congressional Black Caucus. That has nothing to do with the Congressional Black Caucus PAC.”

Lee added that she is not a member of the PAC, and repeated her assertion that “there’s a clear firewall. There’s a clear distinction.”

The congresswoman’s statement came shortly before fellow Rep. Keith Elison (D-MN) — who has endorsed Clinton’s Democratic primary opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) — responded to the PAC’s support of the former Secretary of State by stating on Twitter that caucus members were not consulted regarding the issue, as seen below:

“The point it that endorsements should be the product of a fair open process,” Ellison wrote. “Didn’t happen.”


Don't forget. Bernie on Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight...

Post-New Hampshire return visit.
