Guest: Ryan Vogel, JD, Director of Center for National Security Studies, Utah Valley University President Trump was accused of intelligence leaks and obstruction of justice this week. First, that he shared classified intelligence with Russian officials during a recent meeting at the White House, and second, that he asked former FBI director, James Comey, to drop its probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s ties to Russia. Ongoing investigations into Russian meddling in the presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign have been a major frustration to the President and a reason he cited for firing FBI director Comey last week.

Preventing Violence Before It Happens

So, what if the same approach could be used to predict bad behaviors – like who’s going to commit a crime? If this sounds like the Tom Cruise movie, “Minority Report,” you’re not wrong. New research could help us stop violence before it stops, but there are ethical and privacy considerations to address.
