  Dutch lawyer sentenced to 30 days in prison in Russia probe A Dutch attorney who lied to federal agents investigating former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sentenced Tuesday to 30 days in prison in the first punishment handed down in special counsel's Russia investigation. He was also ordered to pay a $20,000 fine.Alex van der Zwaan's sentence could set a guidepost for what other defendants charged with lying in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation may receive when their cases are resolved. Among them are a former White House national security adviser and a Trump campaign foreign policy aide.

Lieutenant General Naseer Khan Janjua, who retired from the military this week, will be appointed national security adviser soon and will accompany Prime Minister “The army had advised the PM against engaging Modi but he (Nawaz) had insisted that he would pursue peace talks,” the official said.

In a subsequent statement, McMaster, a three-star Army general, announced that he would also retire from the military. Soon -to-exit McMaster blasts Russia. Updated 03/22/2018 08:48 PM EDT. McMaster stepped into the role of national security adviser in February 2017, replacing retired Lt.

Daniel Jean notified the government in January — well before the furor erupted — of his intention to retire, said one source familiar with the matter. Another insider echoed the notion that Jean's plan to leave predates the current controversy.

Both sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly about the matter.

PM's security adviser to give India briefing

  PM's security adviser to give India briefing OTTAWA - Justin Trudeau's national security adviser is offering to give an unclassified briefing to MPs on a Commons committee about the prime minister's trip to India, in addition to a more in-depth classified briefing to Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer. Scheer agreed Tuesday to the government's offer of a classified briefing from Daniel Jean — but with strings attached. He said he wants journalists and Conservative MPs to be able to sit in on the non-secret portions of Jean's briefing.

John Paul Tasker · CBC News · Posted: Mar 31, 2016 4:57 PM ET | Last Updated: March 31, 2016. Former CSIS director and national security adviser Richard Fadden is retiring after 39 years in the public service.

A spokesman for the Privy Council Office, the bureaucracy that serves the Prime Minister's Office, would not confirm or deny Jean's impending retirement, saying PCO does not talk publicly about personnel matters.

Jean did not respond to requests for comment. His intended departure date — and how it may or may not have been impacted by the current controversy — remains unknown.

Jean, a veteran diplomat and former deputy minister of foreign affairs, has served as Trudeau's national security adviser since May 2016.

He's been at the centre of a political uproar over Trudeau's trouble-plagued trip to India after giving a background briefing to reporters in which he suggested factions in the Indian government were behind the embarrassing revelation that a convicted attempted assassin had been invited to two prime ministerial events.

'Tired of being told no,' Trump freezes out chief of staff

  'Tired of being told no,' Trump freezes out chief of staff White House chief of staff John Kelly is seeing his clout wane and his rein on a freewheeling White House loosened.

President Trump’ s second national security adviser , a long-standing proponent of the Iran nuclear deal, is the latest to be purged from the White House ranks. 03.22.18 6:32 PM ET.

Jaspal Atwal, a B.C. Sikh convicted of attempting to assassinate an Indian minister in 1986 during a visit to British Columbia, was photographed at one event in Mumbai with the prime minister's wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau; his invitation to a second event was rescinded after news of his presence broke.

During the briefing, Jean advanced the theory that rogue factions in the Indian government arranged for Atwal's presence in a bid to prevent Prime Minister Narendra Modi from becoming too cosy with a foreign government they believe is sympathetic to extremist Sikh separatists.

At the time, reports attributed the theory to a senior government official, but the Conservatives quickly outed Jean as the official in question. They have been demanding ever since that Jean give the same briefing to MPs.

The Liberal government initially rejected that demand, offering up only a classified briefing to Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer.

However, last week Jean offered to testify openly before the House of Commons' public safety and national security committee, in addition to giving a classified briefing to Scheer. He is scheduled to appear before the committee on Monday.

Intel reworks its malware scanner to speed up its processors .
Turns out integrated GPUs have their uses.TDT includes an "Accelerated Memory Scanning" feature which uses GPU to scan through memory for malware, instead of the CPU. Intel claims this will reduce processor loads from 20 percent to as little as two percent. TDT also includes "Advanced Platform Telemetry", which essentially leverages cloud-based machine learning and endpoint data collection to identify anomalous system behavior. Intel's twist, however, is that it will go beyond operating system-level events to examine things like the processor's integrated performance counters in identifying unusual processor activity.
