Bosco Tjan, a co-director of the Dornsife Cognitive Neuroimaging Center who joined the faculty in 2001, was identified as the victim by USC President C.L. Max Nikias.

“As the Trojan family mourns professor Tjan’s untimely passing, we will keep his family in our thoughts,” Nikias said in a prepared statement. He said counseling would be available for students.

St. Louis Police Officer Shot in 'Ambush' Attack, Chief Says - The New York Times

ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis police sergeant was hospitalized in critical condition but expected to survive after being shot Sunday night in what the police chief called an "ambush."

Police Chief Sam Dotson said the 46-year-old officer was shot twice in the face. The male suspect was later killed in a shootout with police.

"Fortunately for the blessing of God the officer's going to survive," Dotson said during a brief news conference after the shooting. He declined to name the officer but said he is a married father of three who has been with the department for about 20 years.

The officer was not involved in a call or a traffic stop but was sitting in traffic about 7:30 p.m. Sunday when another car pulled up alongside his marked police vehicle. The officer told police he heard at least two shots.

"This officer was driving down the road and was ambushed by an individual who pointed a gun at him from inside of his car and shot out the police officer's window," Dotson said.

Mayor Francis Slay said the officer did nothing to provoke an attack.

Pentagon, Intelligence Chiefs Push to Oust NSA Director - WSJ

WASHINGTON—The U.S. government’s top military and intelligence leaders have recommended that President Barack Obama remove National Security Agency Director Adm. Michael Rogers from office, several people familiar with the matter said, amid questions about his leadership.

The call for his ouster, which came a month ago, is a rare rebuke of a top military commander, particularly when he is being considered for a senior intelligence post in the Trump administration.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper have recommended that Mr. Obama direct Adm. Rogers to leave his command, the people familiar with the matter said. Adm. Rogers has served in the Navy since 1981 and leads both the NSA and Cyber Command.

Adm. Rogers declined to comment. Spokesmen for the Pentagon and Office of the Director of National Intelligence also declined to comment. The effort to oust Adm. Rogers was first reported Saturday by the Washington Post.

Protester shot during anti-Donald Trump rally in Portland - NY Daily News

Earlier in the evening, police hurled tear gas and flash-bang grenades at protesters after they threw “burning projectiles” at officers in riot gear. Demonstrators also disrupted traffic and covered buildings across downtown in graffiti.

Organizers had initially billed Friday's protests as peaceful, but authorities said the peace broke when protesters began vandalizing storefronts and setting street fires.

Anti-Trump protests: Portland police call it 'riot' - CNN.com

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: These so-called protesters are acting like spoiled little children throwing a temper tantrum because they didn't get their way. And the violence, what exactly is that accomplishing? Who are protesters winning over with such antics? Sure, you've got our attention Mr. and Ms. Protester, but it's not about some injustice, it's about how pathetic you are.

(CNN) Thousands protesting Donald Trump's victory in the presidential election took to the streets for a third night of demonstrations and vigils in several US cities.

An anti-Trump rally in Portland, Oregon, revved up as protesters confronted police Thursday night. What started out as a peaceful march, with more than 4,000 people, quickly turned violent.
 
Over the course of the evening, "anarchists" in the crowd threw objects at officers, vandalized local businesses and damaged cars, Portland Police Sgt. Pete Simpson said.

FBI finds emails related to Hillary Clinton's State Department tenure - CBS News

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: But wait a minute.... Hillary said she turned EVERYTHING over to the FBI... That would include leads to who she corresponded with.... Oh and wait another minute.... If Hillary wasn't guilty of wrong doing, why have former members of her staff been given immunity deals? And while we're at it.... It's being reported that President Obama corresponded with Hillary through her insecure personal email server, using his secure Blackberry.  That's a potential violation of the Espionage Act.  How can we as a nation possibly turn the Justice Department over to a woman being investigated for such offenses?

The FBI has found emails related to Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state on the laptop belonging to the estranged husband of Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, according to a U.S. official.

These emails, CBS News’ Andres Triay reports, are not duplicates of emails found on Secretary Clinton’s private server. At this point, however, it remains to be seen whether these emails are significant to the FBI’s investigation into Clinton. It is also not known how many relevant emails there are.

In a letter to Congress last Friday, FBI Director James Comey indicated that the agency was taking steps to review newly discovered emails relating to Clinton’s private email server. Those emails came from the laptop of Weiner, a former New York congressman. Abedin reportedly said she had no knowledge of the existence of any of her emails on Weiner’s laptop. On Monday, CBS News reported that the FBI had obtained a warrant for the emails.

In a separate matter, CBS News confirmed that there were disagreements between FBI agents looking into the Clinton Foundation and their superiors in Washington and at the Department of Justice. The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that the FBI was facing an “internal feud” over how to handle the Clinton Foundation case in the middle of election season. Officials say tension like this is common in many cases.

WikiLeaks hack collateral damage can be deeply personal - CNNPolitics.com

Washington (CNN) It's shaping up to be a new part of the morning routine for DC's elite: Grab coffee, skim the news and type your name into WikiLeaks to see what damage the day's hacked emails might hold for you.

And the fallout isn't just political; it's personal.
 
Amid the campaign strategy, snide comments and other headline fodder culled from the hacked accounts of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, and groups including the Democratic National Committee, the emails include the private information of a large number of bystanders, ranging from email addresses to financial data.
