FBI Treating Pensacola Navy Shooting as Terrorism
via REUTERSThe FBI said Sunday that it is treating the mass shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola as an act of terrorism so it can amass more resources to investigate whether the Saudi gunman was spurred by an "ideology."

Special Agent in Charge Rachel Rojas said authorities have not yet pinpointed shooter Mohammed Alshamrani's motive for Friday's ambush, which killed three and wounded eight.

"I can tell you that we are looking very hard at uncovering his motive and I would ask for patience so we can get this right," Rojas said at an afternoon press briefing.

Biden's Plan to Take Down Warren: Have Mayor Pete Do It
Saul Loeb/GettySince launching his presidential bid, former Vice President Joe Biden has largely settled on a primary strategy common among frontrunners: Only attack when attacked, stay above the conflict, and let the other candidates squabble among themselves so they can eventually take one another out. 

That last tactic is why Biden hasn't been going after Pete Buttigieg. He doesn't think the South Bend mayor can hurt him, but he does think Buttigieg can hurt someone else who could—Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Biden's campaign declined to comment on the record about its strategy. But multiple veteran pollsters and operatives said there's sound logic behind the notion that the vice president's team might view Buttigieg as a useful way to help blunt Warren's momentum, particularly with white college-educated voters. The more Buttigieg rises in states like Iowa and New Hampshire, the thinking goes, the more Warren slips in some polls.

Unusual. Improper. Inappropriate. Wrong: Officials Decry Trump's Pressure on Ukraine to Probe Bidens
"I couldn't believe what I was hearing." Those were the words of Army Lieutenant Colonel Alex Vindman during Tuesday's House impeachment inquiry hearings, describing his reaction to a July phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. During the call, Trump pressured Zelensky to investigate his political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who served on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma. Vindman, who is the director for European affairs at the National Security Council, testified along with Jennifer Williams, a Russia adviser for Vice President Pence, in the first of two hearings on Tuesday. Former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker and Tim Morrison, former senior director for European and Russian affairs on the National Security Council, also testified. Republican lawmakers repeatedly criticized the impeachment process, while Democrats defended it. From Washington, D.C., we speak to Andy Kroll, D.C. bureau chief for Rolling Stone.
