Jihadists reclaim some lost ground in west Aleppo after downing Syrian chopper

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels have retaken a number of points in western Aleppo this afternoon, following the downing of a Syrian military chopper near the town of Uram Al-Kubri. According to reports from west Aleppo, the jihadist rebels have retaken Talat Qurtaba and Abu Salim after a swift counter-offensive near the the strategic Regiment 46 Base. The reports said the Syrian Army never fully secured these areas prior to the jihadist counter-offensive, which ultimately led to their withdraw from these points earlier this afternoon. Similar to their attack on Nayrab this week, the jihadists and their Turkish-backed allies shot down a Syrian military chopper in western Aleppo before launching this new operation. It is not clear where the militants got their anti-aircraft missile from, but according to some Syrian activists, they were likely supplied by the Turkish Armed Forces.

House Republicans say stealing polling data through open blinds is kosher. Democrats say it's creepy.

The campaign organizations for House Democrats and Republicans — the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) — agree on the facts of what happened Wednesday night, Politico reported Friday morning: NRCC staffers walked across the street to the DCCC's headquarters to stake out some Democratic candidates, saw the blinds open on a DCCC polling meeting, and snapped some photos, nabbing pricy and potentially useful proprietary polling data on races Democrats are focusing on in November. Republicans think they hit the jackpot, Democrats found the tactics "totally out of bounds, and downright creepy," Politico reports. "The NRCC and DCCC have disagreed on where to draw the line when it comes to opposition research. The Republican committee, for example, has declined to sign an agreement to not use hacked information in its campaigns." Still, the DCCC didn't exactly take the high road. "When you have no ideas or accomplishments to run on, you creep in…

Trump's latest possible quid pro quo involves New York, airport travel, and his tax returns

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) visited President Trump on Thursday afternoon to try and negotiate the reversal of his administration's new ban on New Yorkers participating in the Global Entry and "trusted traveler" programs, which ease border crossings and airport security lines for enrolled travelers. Cuomo had low hopes, and they were met. The governor's office and acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said talks will continue. Before the meeting, Trump floated what appeared to be an offer he hoped New York couldn't refuse. Cuomo "must understand that National Security far exceeds politics," he tweeted, an apparent reference to the administration's purported rationale for blocking New Yorkers from the programs. "New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harrassment [sic]." New York Attorney General Letitia James — who won a $2 million settlement from Trump over his canceled family charity and is suing him and his business on multiple fronts, including for his financial records — clapped back.…
