% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
  • SnowdenPresident Barack Obama says he can’t pardon Edward Snowden, but it’s probably more likely that he won’t pardon him.
  • Now that the election’s over, President-Elect Donald Trump’s favorability ratings are slowly ticking back upwards. He’s still below 50 percent, though.
  • Kris Kobach, Kansas’ secretary of state and possible Trump pick for his cabinet, brought his written plans for national security to a meeting with Trump. A photographer managed to capture some of the info in a picture.
  • The #CalExit folks (those who want to have California secede from the union) are starting to push a new ballot initiative, hoping to get more support in the wake of Trump’s election. They are apparently still unaware that several inland counties within California went for Trump.
  • Democrats in North Carolina are calling on Republican Gov. Pat McCrory to concede the election. He trails Democratic challenger and state Attorney General Roy Cooper by 6,600 votes currently.
  • The IRS is looking to force Coinbase to provide a list of customers who engaged in virtual currency (like bitcoin) transactions to find those who might be skirting the tax code.
  • Workers at Chicago’s O’Hare airport voted to strike starting Nov. 29. They want $15-an-hour wages.
  • Democratic Hawaiian Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (a supporter of Bernie Sanders) broke ranks to meet with Trump today. She put out a statement saying they discussed her concerns about military escalation in Syria and desire to end our involvement in that country. Of additional interest (particularly where the Trump administration is concerned): She’s a member of the Fourth Amendment Caucus that formed earlier in the year to try to rein in government surveillance.
