U.S. EPA chief Pruitt asked for 24/7 security from Day One: watchdog

U.S. EPA chief Pruitt asked for 24/7 security from Day One: watchdog(Reuters) – U.S. Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt requested and received around-the-clock security from his first day in office in 2017, the agency’s watchdog on Monday told a lawmaker questioning Pruitt’s expensive security detail. Prior EPA administrators have not had blanket protection. Pruitt, under pressure from Congress for his high travel and security spending in his position at America’s top environmental regulator, has said his 24-hour security was installed due to unusual threats against him.


Russian company charged in Mueller probe seeks grand jury materials

Russian company charged in Mueller probe seeks grand jury materialsBy Sarah N. Lynch WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A Russian company accused by Special Counsel Robert Mueller of funding a propaganda operation to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election is asking a federal judge for access to secret information reviewed by a grand jury before it indicted the firm. In a court filing on Monday, lawyers for Concord Management and Consulting LLC said Mueller had wrongfully accused the company of a “make-believe crime,” in a political effort by the special counsel to “justify his own existence” by indicting “a Russian-any Russian.” They asked the judge for approval to review the instructions provided to the grand jury, saying they believed the case was deficient because Mueller lacked requisite evidence to show the company knowingly and “willfully” violated American laws.


Europa's plumes make Jupiter moon a prime candidate for life

Europa's plumes make Jupiter moon a prime candidate for lifeBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A new look at old data is giving scientists a fresh reason to view Europa, a moon of Jupiter, as a leading candidate in the search for life beyond Earth, with evidence of water plumes shooting into space. A bend in Europa’s magnetic field observed by NASA’s Galileo spacecraft during a 1997 flyby appears to have been caused by a geyser gushing through its frozen crust from a subsurface ocean, researchers who reexamined the Galileo data reported on Monday. Galileo was passing some 124 miles (200 kilometers) above Europa’s surface when it apparently flew through the plume.
