As hundreds of thousands march in London, what next for Brexit?

Today 00:33 GMT

Today hundreds of thousands marched in London demanding another referendum – while a petition calling for Brexit to be stopped altogether passed 4m signatures.

Keir Starmer, the shadow Brexit secretary who wants a second referendum and to stay in the EU, and Jeremy Corbyn, who clearly would rather not have a public vote and thinks we should leave, send out very different messages because they seem to want different outcomes.

Adam Schiff rejects reports that Mueller indictments are over, says special counsel could be called to testify

Saturday 23:39 GMT

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff rejected reports that no more Mueller indictments are coming, and suggested he would call the special counsel before a House panel if necessary to learn what is in the report.

“It doesn’t mean, of course, that main justice or the Seventh District of New York and the Eastern District or others may not bring indictments,”. “In fact, given the lengthy redactions in many of the pleadings of the special counsel eluding to other investigations, I think it’s entirely possible if not likely that there will be other indictments. READ THE LETTER: AG BILL BARR'S LETTER TO LAWMAKERS ANNOUNCING HE RECEIVED MUELLER REPORT. “Now, how central or peripheral they’ll be to the core issues of potential conspiracy is yet to be determined.”

The continuous voting wiped out more than a day of government business, while the SNC-Lavalin controversy is set to wage on.

Rep. Andy Biggs: Prosecute Comey for instigating Mueller probe

Today 00:33 GMT

That means fired FBI Director James Comey and others responsible for instigating this farcical investigation for the sole purpose of undermining President Trump must be prosecuted.

As it is, even with those two steps, the fact that congressional Democrats have promised to ratchet up their multitude of pending investigations against President Trump and his administration make the notion of breaching our political divide almost quaint, and perhaps hopeless.

Opinion: Trump's Golan initiative is ignorant and dangerous

Saturday 14:29 GMT

Thus, Trump's Golan initiative is not only dangerous; when viewed against the backdrop of his own interests and plans for the region, it is simply ignorant and counterproductive.

The regional implications are dangerous as well: Much as he did in 2017 by unilaterally recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel — against the will of Palestinians and the great majority of UN member states — Trump has once again taken Israel's side, to the benefit of Netanyahu and the detriment of the Arab world.

Brexit Brief: Europe throws Theresa May, and the U.K., a lifeline

Saturday 08:04 GMT

European Union leaders have given U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May until April 12 to find a new way forward for Brexit if her withdrawal agreement is rejected again by parliament next week, removing the threat of an imminent, chaotic exit for Britain on March 29.

In the event that the deal does go ahead and is rejected again and the prime minister cannot present an alternative Brexit plan before April 12, the U.K. will be forced to choose between a no-deal Brexit and a longer extension, which in turn would mean the U.K. must participate in European parliamentary elections.
