Morrison discusses concerns about Vindman's judgment
Republican counsel Steve Castor asked Tim Morrison -- the outgoing senior director of European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council -- about concerns within the NSC about Alexander Vindman's judgment. He asked Morrison about concerns his predecessor, Fiona Hill, might have had, but Morrison's lawyer said the question was outside the scope of his testimony. Morrison did reference his earlier testimony, in which he said others had raised concerns about Vindman potentially leaking information, something Vindman denied earlier Tuesday.

Disney+ crashed on launch day because its software wasn’t ready for the demand
Photo: Lucasfilm / Disney On Disney+’s first day, its initial 10 million subscribers were hit with a series of outages. The company says this was because of high demand and the way engineers “architected the app.” Ahead of the launch, Disney executives thought they would be ok.

It didn’t. New subscribers couldn’t log in to the app; if they managed to get in, streaming was nearly impossible. People thought it might be issues with Amazon or third-party platforms carrying the app, but Kevin Mayer, head of Disney’s direct to consumer division, denied those rumors. “It... Continue reading…
