Trump-aligned group launches ad campaign hitting Doug Jones on impeachment
https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/479241-trump-aligned-group-launches-ad-campaign-hitting-doug-jones-on-impeachment
A dark money group aligned with President Trump is launching a seven-figure multistate advertising campaign pushing back on impeachment, with an initial ad buy targeting Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.).

The group, America First Policies, will roll out the first installment of the campaign Wednesday, with a $450,000 buy in Alabama accusing Jones of aligning himself with the “radical left” and urging him to put an end to impeachment proceedings against Trump.

“Instead of confirming conservative judges, instead of securing our borders by funding the wall, Jones is siding with them,” a narrator says in the ad, which will debut across media markets in Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile and Montgomery.

“So call Doug Jones. Tell him to stop standing with the radical left and end impeachment,” the narrator adds.

America First Policies said it was prepared to spend $1 million across three states on the anti-impeachment ad campaign, though the group did not say what other states it planned to target.

The ad campaign was first reported by Politico.

Jones, a freshman senator who only narrowly won a special election to replace former Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) in 2017, is widely considered the most vulnerable Democratic senator facing reelection in 2020.

global trend to criminalize journalism

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/paloma/the-cybersecurity-202/2020/01/22/the-cybersecurity-202-glenn-greenwald-says-brazil-charges-are-part-of-a-global-trend-to-criminalize-journalism/5e272989602ff14e66056868/

American journalist Glenn Greenwald says the Brazilian government's charges against him are the latest strike in a global campaign by governments across the world to use anti-hacking laws to punish and silence journalists.

“Governments [are] figuring out how they can criminalize journalism based on large-scale digital leaks,” Greenwald told me.

Greenwald, who won a Pulitzer Prize for reporting on leaked documents from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden in 2014, says the charges are baseless. “Even in democracies —let alone in the authoritarian world — there’s a real struggle to make the law fit criminalizing leaks of this sort,” he said.

Greenwald, who lives in Rio de Janeiro, is facing charges stemming from his reporting on leaked cellphone messages that raised doubts about a corruption investigation that aided the rise of Brazil's far-right President Jair Bolsonaro. Greenwald is accused of being part of a "criminal organization" that allegedly hacked into public officials' cellphones last year to copy messages that were published on his news site, the Intercept Brazil, as my colleagues Miriam Berger and Paul Farhi report.

Greenwald compared the Brazilian charges against him to the Trump administration’s controversial decision to prosecute WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange last year under the main U.S. anti-hacking law, the 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

Glenn Greenwald Charged With Cybercrimes in Brazil

No.536441 ViewReplyOriginalReport
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/21/world/americas/glenn-greenwald-brazil-cybercrimes.html

RIO DE JANEIRO — Federal prosecutors in Brazil on Tuesday charged the American journalist Glenn Greenwald with cybercrimes for his role in bringing to light cellphone messages that have embarrassed prosecutors and tarnished the image of an anti-corruption task force.

In a criminal complaint made public on Tuesday, prosecutors in the capital, Brasília, accused Mr. Greenwald of being part of a “criminal organization” that hacked into the cellphones of several prosecutors and other public officials last year.

Mr. Greenwald, an ardent critic of Brazil’s far right president, Jair Bolsonaro, is a deeply polarizing figure in Brazil, where his work is lionized by leftists and condemned as partisan and heavy handed by officials in the Bolsonaro administration.

The news organization Mr. Greenwald co-founded, The Intercept Brasil, published articles last year based on the leaked cellphone messages that raised questions about the integrity and the motives of key members of Brazil’s justice system.

The articles cast doubt on the impartiality of a former judge, Sérgio Moro, and of some of the prosecutors who worked on a corruption investigation that landed several powerful political and business figures in prison.

Among those charged in connection with the corruption investigation was a former president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, a popular leftist whose conviction paved the way for the election of Mr. Bolsonaro. Mr. Moro was the judge who handled that case, and he is now Mr. Bolsonaro’s minister of justice.
