Edward Snowden: David Petraeus Disclosed 'Far More Highly Classified' Secrets Than I Did

Snowden says Petraeus released more secrets than he didIn an exclusive interview with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric, Edward Snowden says that former CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus — who is under consideration to become President-elect Donald Trump’s secretary of state — disclosed “information that was far more highly classified than I ever did” and yet never “spent a single day in jail.”

The fugitive former National Security Agency contractor told Couric that Petraeus’s case is evidence that “We have a two-tiered system of justice in the United States, where people who are either well-connected to government or they have access to an incredible amount of resources get very light punishments.”

Italian PM Matteo Renzi to Resign After Referendum Defeat

Renzi resignsItalian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi conceded defeat on Sunday and pledged to resign after Italian voters rejected his proposed reforms to the country’s constitution, setting further in motion a populist wave that has sent shockwaves through the West in the past six months, and ushering in a brand new period of uncertainty to the Eurozone’s third largest economy.

The vote dealt a major blow to Renzi, whose rise to prominence in Europe coincided with that of populist, Eurosceptic sentiment within his own country and the continent as a whole.

Van der BellenThe candidate vying to become Europe's first freely elected far-right head of state since World War Two conceded defeat in Austria's presidential election soon after polls closed on Sunday evening.

The result is a blow to populists who had hoped a wave of anti-establishment anger sweeping Western democracies would carry Norbert Hofer to power after Britain's Brexit referendum and Americans' election of Donald Trump as president.

Hofer, of the anti-immigration and anti-Islam Freedom Party (FPO), conceded he had been soundly beaten by former Greens leader Alexander Van der Bellen.

Taiwan fiasco denial by Trump teamPresident-elect Donald Trump’s team insists it’s not a big deal that he spoke directly with Taiwan’s president, breaking with years of delicate foreign policy precedent and leading to the Chinese government lodging a complaint over the matter with the U.S.

Vice President-elect Mike Pence said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the Trump campaign had “not to [his] knowledge” reached out to China following the outcry. He told host Chuck Todd that he “wouldn’t expect” a call this week, either.

Jill SteinGreen Party presidential candidate Jill Stein moved her bid for a recount in Pennsylvania from the state courts to the federal courts.

Hours after dropping its case at the state level, the campaign said late Saturday it will pursue efforts in federal courts to contest the Nov. 8 election in Pennsylvania.

"We are committed to this fight to protect the civil and voting rights of all Americans," Jonathan Abady, lead counsel for the recount campaign, said in a statement. "Over the past several days, it has become clear that the barriers to verifying the vote in Pennsylvania are so pervasive and that the state court system is so ill-equipped to address this problem that we must seek federal court intervention."
