Do you like top secret documents? Do you like Mariah Carey? How about the CIA? No? Well, too bad – you're getting facts on all three anyway. Trump claimed he could declassify documents with nothing but the power of his mind. While talking to Sean Hannity on Fox, Trump claimed that just by thinking about doing so, he could declassify top secret documents while in office. Let's see if that holds up in court (spoiler alert: it won't). Mariah Carey says we should finally hear her secret 1995 grunge album: ‘Someone’s Ugly Daughter,' with Carey singing backup vocals. The recordings of her lead vocals have been unearthed and she says we should give them a listen… if we dare. And the CIA launched a podcast to prove that working at the Agency is boring as shit. The mission of “The Langley Files: A CIA Podcast” is to educate and connect with the general public, as well as dispel notions that it’s a glamorous line of work as often portrayed in pop culture (it totally isn't, it turns out.)
