As Donald Trump delivered his inaugural address on Capitol Hill in January, his incoming national security adviser, Michael Flynn, sitting a few yards away, texted a former business partner to say that a nuclear power project that would require lifting sanctions on Russia was “good to go”, a senior House Democrat said in a letter released on Wednesday. Quoting a confidential informant, Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House oversight and government reform committee, wrote that Alex Copson, the managing partner of ACU Strategic Partners, told the informant that Flynn would see that the sanctions on Moscow were “ripped up”.
Al Franken announced Thursday he will resign his Senate seat, falling to a whirlwind of sexual misconduct allegations like those that have enmeshed other politicians, business leaders and media figures across the country in recent months.
In a brief but emotional speech on the Senate floor, with 22 Democratic colleagues and one Republican looking on, Franken invoked the accusations that have swirled around President Trump and the Republican candidate in next week’s special election for an Alabama seat in the Senate, Roy Moore.
MUELLER DEPUTY PRAISED DOJ OFFICIAL AFTER SHE DEFIED TRUMP TRAVEL BAN ORDER: 'I AM SO PROUD' . A spokesman for the special counsel told Fox News on Friday Weissmann is still a member of Mueller's team.
On Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Mueller investigator Andrew Weissmann, a former partner at WilmerHale, attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party last November at the Javits Center in New York City.
Declassified documents published on Friday show that the United States believed its military and South Korea’s forces would “undoubtedly win” a conflict on the divided Korean peninsula, during a 1994 standoff over Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions.
“An all-out war with North Korea, nuclear war, even if China and Russia did not enter,” Perry said, “could still entail casualties approximating those of World War I or even World War II.”
Born on 16 December 1917, Arthur C Clarke lived long enough to see the year he and Stanley Kubrick made cinematically famous with 2001: A Space Odyssey, and it seemed for a while as though he might see in his centenary too: he was physically active (he had a passion for scuba diving), non-smoking, teetotal and always interested in and curious about the world.
Knighted in 2000, he is properly speaking Sir Arthur; but for the huge affection many in SF fandom have for him, he could almost be King Arthur.
The United States faced blunt and sometimes withering criticism from friends and adversaries alike at the United Nations on Friday over President Trump’s declaration that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital and his plans to move the American Embassy to the highly contested holy city.
Critics have said that recognizing Israel’s claim to Jerusalem without acknowledging a Palestinian claim broke with international consensus and prejudged the outcome of any negotiations.
Lindsey Vonn finished a World Cup super-G race in extreme pain on Saturday and was treated by race doctors for an apparent back injury.
The injury came just days after she made headlines for speaking out against Donald Trump, telling CNN that she wants to “represent the people of the United States, not the president” and would turn down the invitation to the White House traditionally put forth to the entire US Olympic team after next year’s Winter Games. “I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony,” Vonn said.
My girlfriend has a good sense of humour and says it’s just the nature of my sexuality, the same way it would be if I was gay.
There’s nothing wrong with monogamy, but if you’re lusting for further stimulation and your girlfriend doesn’t want to partner you down that road it’s time to reconsider for both your sakes. Perhaps you’ve wound up with Samantha Bond’s Miss Moneypenny when Famke Janssen’s voracious Xenia Onatopp would be the better match.
The 2017 Nobel laureates will be presented with their awards by the King of Sweden during a ceremony in Stockholm on Sunday.
Kazuo Ishiguro, author of novels including The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go, will collect his medal for the Nobel prize in literature and the American economist Richard Thaler, best known for “nudge” theory, will collect the prize in economics. Several of the winners of this year’s Nobel science laureates – all white men – addressed the lack of diversity among those being recognised.
Their portraits were among those to feature in a recent photography exhibition developed with help from staff at Kingston University and St George’s, University of London that offered a window on to the lives of premature babies and their families on the neonatal unit at St George’s.
Surrounded by the sickest infants, in a place where not all stories have a happy ending and those that do involve “trauma, anxiety and setbacks”, Courtney has now spent 17 weeks with her babies in special care (St George’s was the third of four hospitals to which she and the babies have been admitted).
"I was nervous for him due to the fact I knew he was a very innocent man behind bars with very bad criminals," she said."I had suicide all over me … for a while," Roosevelt Glenn said in tears.
"Having gone through all the evidence … there's nothing to me that, outside of the coveralls that really indicates that they're guilty," said Max.
She investigated the questionable convictions of Darryl Pinkins and Roosevelt Glenn for the episode, "Guilty Until Proven Innocent."
The cases of Darryl Pinkins and Roosevelt Glenn were the first wrongful convictions overturned by a new DNA technology, and "48 Hours" was there to witness it.
The other night at Buzzy’s 8 Ball Tavern & Pool Room, home of the all-day Happy Hour, the big argument at the corner booth was; Is a bone-in ribeye steak really better, and hence worth the extra coin, than a boneless ribeye?
Because at Buzzy’s we respect everybody’s God given right to express themselves, we sat and listened as the non-meat eaters explained to the carnivores why beef, really meat in general, is bad for us, our environment, the planet and, of course, those really tasty animals.
A man who spent 15 years in prison for shaking his baby to death was freed Saturday, one day after a judge set aside his conviction.
Johnson's attorneys have filed a motion seeking to have any new charges dismissed at his next hearing on Jan. 19, based on a lack of evidence beyond the experts' medical testimony.
The Treasury Department paid $220,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by a former congressional staffer alleging sexual harassment by Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., it was reported Friday.
Franks' resignation followed a claim by a former aide that the congressman repeatedly asked her to carry his child, at one point offering her $5 million to do so.
