US Soldier Being Sentenced In Espionage Case

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A sentencing hearing for a soldier who pleaded guilty to attempted espionage and other charges has begun at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska.
    
An eight-member panel is debating the sentence of 24-year-old Spc. William Colton Millay on Monday.
    
The military policeman pleaded guilty before a military judge on March 19 to charges including attempted espionage, soliciting another to commit espionage and communicating national defense information.
    
The Army says Millay had access to information that he believed could hurt the United States. He is accused of providing classified information to a woman who was posing as a Russian intelligence agent.
    
Officials say there is no connection between Millay's case and the one involving Bradley Manning, the Army private accused of disclosing intelligence information to WikiLeaks.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump has ignited a firestorm of criticism and charges that he is politicizing the military by faulting a war hero for not capturing al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden sooner. Former CIA director Leon Panetta said Trump owed an apology to retired Adm. William McRaven, who had said Trump's assertion that the news media was the "enemy of the people" was "the greatest threat to democracy" in his lifetime.
