The FBI says Szuhsiung “Allen” Ho is the first person in the U.S. to be charged with nuclear espionage involving China.

But the engineer’s attorney claims the FBI tricked him into an interview that may incriminate him, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. 

Ho was arrested in April at a hotel in Atlanta and changed with procuring American nuclear information for the Chinese government.

Ho, whose firm is Energy Technology International, was working to provide information in an alleged plot with Chinese General Nuclear Power.

“Ho repeatedly attempted to justify his situation, at which point agents reminded Ho he had preferred to speak with a lawyer and prohibited Ho from making incriminating statements,” an FBI report stated.

The investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private e-mail server has stalled because the former secretary of state has not agreed to sit down for an interview yet, Townhall reports.

Clinton’s claim that the FBI has not contacted her for an interview is not true.

The FBI has been trying to negotiate with her attorney, David Kendall, over a time for the interview.

Townhall wrote that Clinton appears to be stalling the interview until she is the official Democratic nominee.

“Comey is turning up the heat, insisting that the interview be done sooner than later, but it doesn’t look like he will be able to force Hillary’s hand,” Townhall wrote.

Hillary Clinton Says FBI Has Not Asked to Interview Her over E-Mail Probe

Hillary Clinton said Sunday that the FBI has not yet asked her to scheduled an interview over her private e-mail server.

When asked whether she was contacted by the FBI, Clinton responded on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” “No. No, they haven’t. But you know, back in August, we made clear that I’m happy to answer any questions that anybody might have. And I stand by that.”

Clinton said she was not “concerned” about the investigation hurting her chances of getting the nomination.

“I don’t think anything inappropriate was done,” she said. “And so I have to let them decide how to resolve their security inquiry. But I’m not at all worried about it.”

The FBI said last week that it will soon interview Clinton’s aides as part of the inquiry.

Planned Parenthood Shooter Claimed Attack Was ‘Last Stand’ Against FBI

By Steve Neavling

The man who killed three people and wounded nine others at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado said he chose the attack to make “my last stand” against the FBI, which he claims has been harassing him for years.

In an interview with KCNC-TV, Robert Lewis Dear said he didn’t plan the Nov. 27 shooting in advance and that the FBI was following him that morning.

Dear claimed that the FBI has been raising him for years, breaking into his home and cutting holes in his clothes.

“I felt like they were going to get me, and so I am going to pick where I am going to make my last stand, and I picked Planned Parenthood because it’s murdering little babies,” Dear said. “Well, when I got there, of course, those guys knew I was armed, knew everything about me. They slither off like snakes and they get the local cops to do their dirty work, so that’s why the shootout was there.”

The FBI couldn’t comment because of a gag order in the case.

Dear said he’s “sane” and “coherent” and has a college degree.

He has been charged with 179 counts of first-degree murder, attempted murder, assault and other crimes.

“Well I’m just an honest man and I believe I’m guilty, so I am just going to plead guilty,” he said.

Fox News Cries Foul Over Attorney General Eric Holder Denying Exit Interview

By Steve Neavling

Attorney General Eric Holder has given Fox News the stiff-arm on an exit interview, and the news agency is not happy, The Washington Post reports.

“The Attorney General’s decision does a deep disservice to America’s largest cable news audience and the interests of a free press,” Fox News Executive Vice President Michael Clemente said in a statement.

An exit interview with Holder “would have been spectacular, give the backstory,” The Post wrote.

It was discovered in the spring of 2013 that the Justice Department used heavy-handed tactics in pursuing an investigation against Fox News reporter James Rosen, who was falsely accused of being co-conspirator in a case involving former intelligence analyst Stephen Kim.

Fox News said it wants a chance to address the facts.

“Ultimately, however, we’re not surprised that Holder would try to evade a thorough accounting of his record in office, including his decision to investigate our Chief Washington correspondent, James Rosen through an illegal seizure of emails and phone records of Rosen and his parents. Late today, the DOJ press office said ‘they look forward to accommodating’ FOX News at a future time.’ We’re hopeful but realistic about whether that will actually happen.”

Former FBI Agent Reveals Tricks of Influencing People in Everyday Life

A good FBI agent can make friends with just about anyone. 

Now a former agent, Jack Schafer, is sharing the tricks of the trade in a new book, “The Like Switch,” which is written for people to use in their everyday lives.

Schafer, who worked as behavioral therapist for the bureau for seven years, said people are too caught up in themselves and don’t have a lot of the skills to make friends.

“We are too busy focusing on ourselves and not the people we meet,” he writes.

“We put our wants and needs before the wants and needs of others. The irony of all this is that other people will be eager to fulfill your wants and needs if they like you.”

Schafer shows how nonverbal cues impact how people see us.

When Ariel Castro hanged himself in his jail cell earlier this week, he left behind many questions.

How was he able to avoid arrest for abducting and raping women? Why did he do it?

Some of the answers can be found in recently obtained FBI video of the convicted kidnapper, who said authorities had chances to catch him much earlier than they did, Today reports.

Castro also said his girlfriend had suspicions.

“She seen that I had a TV on in the upstairs room,’’ Castro said in the interrogation video. “And she says, ‘What is that? You have a TV on up there?’ And my heart started beating, and I was like, ‘Okay, she’s probably catching onto something.’”

Retiring Fedarcyk Opens Up About Her Time in the Field

Janice Fedarcyk, the first female to ever head up the New York FBI office ,  is retiring Friday to begin work in the private sector.

Fedarcyk spoke to WNYC about her time at the FBI.

 You have been a trailblazer for women in law enforcement. Did gender make a difference in your career?

I’ve never looked at my career from a gender perspective. I think most women, and I’ll speak for law enforcement because that is what I know, want to be judged just as any of their colleagues would be judge, as their peers would be judged and that is on their work ethic, their performance. And in instances of women moving into management ranks based on their leadership skills and abilities.

Did you feel there was resistance? In Nevada when you started out as a patrol officer, how many women were there on the job?

Well, I was on a local police department. My graduating class from the police academy had … six of us graduating in a class of probably 40 males. And there were not that many women at the time on the department. This goes back to 1981. … We were in uniform on the street and we were expected to hold your own because at that time the department fielded one officer cars, which meant that at least until potentially back up arrived, you were on your own and you really did had to have the ability to handle yourself on the streets.

What are some things that you learned along the way that you wished you’d known better than when you started?

Well I think one of the things that you don’t really have a good sense of before you join an organization like the FBI is that this is not a 9-to-5 job. We work around the clock. We work the weekends the holidays. So you miss a lot of the family events — some planned, some not planned. And you really just have to be ready when the call comes and you have to go and respond.

The other part of it is coming into the FBI you are not just taking a job. This truly is about mission. This truly is about protecting America from threats small and large, which continue to evolve as our world continues to change.

During your time here, there was lot of ink spilled about the FBI and the NYPD. How do you think that relationship is now and what do you think drives story that story line?

I think the relationship is in a good place. Just by way of example, the Joint Terrorism Task Force has over 50 different agencies participating. Our largest partner in that effort is the New York City Police Department. That’s not the only joint effort and initiative that we have ongoing with them. So does it sell if you can paint a picture that there is this constant fighting between FBI and NYPD? You know, maybe it sells a few newspapers or makes a great sound bite. But I think people really need to look at what’s getting done in partnership and accentuate the positive as opposed to always wanting to lean to the negative.
