The federal judge in Hawaii who ruled against Donald Trump’s travel ban has been receiving threatening messages, the FBI said Thursday.

The FBI said it’s prepared to help after being made aware of the threats against U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson, CBS News reports. 

“The U.S. Marshals service will do a critical risk assessment, look at the threat, make an analysis, and determine the level of protection needed,” Former federal agent Tommy Aiu said.

Watson blocked the enforcement of the ban on new visas from six predominately Muslim countries. The judge also blocked the suspension of the nation’s refugee program.

The judge said Trump was unable to demonstrate that the eight countries are a danger to the U.S. and that they amount to a ban on Muslims.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired Marin general, is said to be in favor over the appointment of a general to lead the Secret Service and help shakeup the beleaguered agency.

The announcement is expected to be made next week.

The identity of the candidate has not been revealed.

At least six Secret Service agents and officers are expected to be disciplined after a man jumped White House fences and managed to stay on the property for nearly 17 minutes before being captured.

The Secret Service blamed “lapses in security protocol” that allowed the man to jump the fences undetected while Trump was inside the White House, CNN reported.

The disciplinary action will be handled by the Secret Service’s Office of Professional Responsibility, and a final judgment on discipline will be made by the Office of Integrity.

The Secret Service expressed frustration with the incident in a statement last week.

“The men and women of the Secret Service are extremely disappointed and angry in how the events of March 10th transpired,” the statement read.

“Immediate steps have been taken to mitigate lapses in security protocols even as the investigation continues. These steps include additional posts, technology enhancements, and response protocols.”

The FBI helped locate and arrest the suspect accused of threatening Jewish organizations across the U.S. and other parts of the world.

The suspect was in Israel.

The Israeli National Police worked with the FBI to help locate the suspect, whose identity has not been revealed.

“Investigating hate crimes is a top priority for the FBI, and we will continue to work to make sure all races and religions feel safe in their communities and in their places of worship,” the FBI said in a statement.

The bureau declined to provide more information at this time.

Since Donald Trump was elected president, reported hate crimes have soared, including threats against Jewish people.

Tom Brady’s stolen Super Bowl jerseys have been returned to the New England Patriots after the FBI helped recover the items from another country.

The Patriots quarterback was wearing one of the jerseys while leading the team to a comeback victory against the Atlanta Falcons during the Feb. 5 Super Bowl. The other stolen jersey was worn by Brady when the team won the 49th Super Bowl two years ago, NBC News reports.

“We know how much this means to the Patriots and football fans everywhere, and we are honored to be able to bring these jerseys back” to Foxborough, Massachusetts, where the Patriots call home, the FBI said in a statement.

The jerseys were found “in the possession of a credentialed member of the international media,” the National Football League said Monday.

The FBI joined the case because Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said “you don’t come to Texas and embarrass us on our home turf.”

No charges have been filed yet, and the identify of the suspect remains a secret.

“It is another example of the importance of teamwork and what can be accomplished when everyone works together,” team owner Robert Kraft said in a statement. “We appreciate the effort of everyone involved and look forward to returning these jerseys to Tom when he gets back to New England.

The FBI acknowledged it wiretapped Trump Tower, but it was not because of the president or his political campaign.

The FBI had court approval to monitor a Russian crime organization operating on the tower’s 63rd floor.

Prosecutors described the mafia members as an “international money-laundering, sports gambling and extortion ring,” ABC News reported.

One 0f the ring’s leaders, Vadim Trincher, is accused of laundering ten of millions of dollars from the Soviet Union through Cyprus and into the U.S.

As a result of the FBI investigation, a grand jury indicted more than 30 people in April 2013.

What’s unclear is whether Trump met any of the mafia members.

The FBI’s investigation into Russian interference during the U.S. presidential election has widened to include reviewing continuing threats against a Washington D.C. pizza shop that has been targeted by right-wing conspiracy theorists.

Comet Ping Pong Pizza has been accused, with no evidence, of operating a child sex ring out of the nonexistent basement with the help of senior members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Tweets alleging that Comet Ping Pong Pizza ran a sex ring – called Pizzagate – were sent out by anonymous online bots. As a result, a 28-year-old North Carolina man entered the shop with a loaded automatic rifle and shot three rounds as he searched for a nonexistent basement sex chamber.

The suspect, Edgar Madison Welch, is scheduled to be sentenced Friday.

Two Guatemalan Sisters Claim They Were Raped by Border Patrol Officer

Two sisters who were lost in the Texas desert after fleeing Guatemala claim they were sexually assaulted by a Border Patrol officer.

The sisters, age 17 and 19, said they waved down a CBP truck for help. The officer is then accused of placing them to closet in the Presidio, Texas, intake office, where they were forced to strip and were sexually assaulted in July 2016, the Los Angeles Times reports. 

On behalf of the sisters, the ACLU of Norther California filed suit Tuesday against Homeland Security.

The sisters now live in Fresno with their mother.

“What happened in that closet has caused me so much pain and sadness,” the older sister said.” I’m telling my story because I don’t want anyone else to go through this. I hope the officer will be honest about what he did and take responsibility for his actions. This is the only way we’ll be able to ensure this never happens again.”

ACLU attorneys said the officer must be held accountable.

“CBP must be held accountable for its officer’s sexual abuse of these vulnerable victims,” said ACLU of Northern California staff attorney Angélica Salceda. “There has been no criminal prosecution against the officer involved. CBP is not above the law, and its abuses of power must not be tolerated.”
