Trump touts endorsement of 88 retired military figures: Donald Trump won the endorsement of 88 retired generals and admirals, according to an open letter released Tuesday morning by the campaign. The 2016 election affords the American people an urgently needed opportunity to make a long overdue course correction in our national security posture and policy, the former military leaders wrote in their letter. The letter was spearheaded by Maj. Gen. Sidney Shachnow of the Army, a 40-year-old veteran and Holocaust survivor, and Rear Adm. Charles Williams of the Navy. It comes ahead of Trump's veterans affairs speech in Virginia Beach, Va., on Tuesday. As retired senior leaders of America's military, we believe that such a change can only be made by someone who has not been deeply involved with, and substantially responsible for, the hollowing out of our military and the burgeoning threats facing our country around the world, the generals and admirals wrote. For this reason, we support Donald Trump's candidacy to be our next commander in chief.

Homeland eyes special declaration to take charge of elections: Even before the FBI identified new cyberattacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a critical infrastructure, giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and the electric power grid. The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials. We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said. There's a vital national interest in our election process, so I do think we need to consider whether it should be considered by my department and others critical infrastructure, he said at a media conference earlier this month hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.
