U.N. Climate Change Talks Wracked By Allegations Of Sexual Harassment

Several women, who served on the United Nation’s environmental task forces — specifically those in charge of spearheading climate change negotiations — say they were the victims of sexual harassment that went on for years, even at the highest levels of the U.N.‘s environmental operation.

Speaking to Climate Change News on the condition of anonymity, several women say that while working to help the U.N. address climate change, they became subject to all sorts of untoward behavior from the U.N.‘s climate scientists and senior officials — and it became so bad that leaders of current climate change talks had to draw up “zero tolerance policies” so that women would be protected when they came forward with complaints.—More…

Republicans Prepare For War With FBI, DOJ: To File Contempt Action Over Anti-Trump Bias

Five weeks ago, House Speaker Paul Ryan accused the DOJ and FBI of “stonewalling” the House Intelligence Committee’s wide-ranging subpoena for all pertinent information about how the largely unsubstantiated “Trump dossier” played into the DOJ’s decision to launch the infamous Trump collusion investigation. At the time, the speaker said the agency was preparing to turn over the information requested by the committee, but despite his assurances, the promised documents never materialized.

Then yesterday, thanks to a series of coordinated media leaks, Nunes learned – at the same time as the broader public - about the reassignment of Peter Strzok, a senior Mueller aide who had played a critical role in the DOJ’s original collusion investigation. And before that, Strzok helped lead the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.—More…
