U.S. Donald Trump Russia investigation President Donald Trump may have put Americans “at risk by lying” about his company’s business dealings with Russia during the 2016 election, says former Obama U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance. “Trump put us at risk by lying about the Trump Moscow deal & exposing himself to blackmail,” Vance tweeted on Friday morning. “We don’t know yet whether US policy or anything else was impacted, but the man who did this lacks the fundamental character & judgment necessary to be entrusted with leading our country.” Vance was appointed by former President Barack Obama to serve as the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama. After retiring in 2017, she revealed that the first time Obama met with the new attorneys he told them, “I appointed you, but you don’t serve me. You serve the American people. And I expect you to act with independence and integrity.” The bombshell that Trump was … [Read more...] about Donald Trump ‘Put Us at Risk,’ Exposed Himself to Blackmail by Lying About Russia Dealings, Says Former Obama U.S. Attorney

Though enamoured of the electrifying synth that loops throughout the song, I did not learn about the backstory behind Bruce Springsteen’s pop album “Born in the U.S.A.” until I knew a word or two of English. I was born a yellow man in a foreign land, to use Springsteen’s lyrics, thousands of miles from his hometown of Asbury Park, New Jersey, but we managed to obtain two copies of the 1984 Springsteen album back at home in China. One was purchased by my father in the ’90s, when China was an isolationist nation, largely separated from U.S. pop culture. I purchased my own copy much later, not knowing that my dad already owned one. That’s how popular “Born in the U.S.A.” is. Released in June 1984, Springsteen’s seventh album “Born in the U.S.A.” is the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed of his discography. With seven top-10 singles charted in the United States, and over 20 million sales certificated … [Read more...] about Growing Up In — and According to — the ‘U.S.A.’
As a looming deadline approaches for the Iran nuclear deal, there may be a plan to prevent the United States from pulling out of the agreement -- essentially a workaround that would help President Trump deliver on a campaign promise of renegotiating the deal. "Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan reports the U.S. and its European allies would create a proposal that addresses Mr. Trump's concerns about the agreement -- ballistic missiles, military site inspections and the sunset clause -- thus allowing Mr. Trump to claim he "fixed" the 2015 international agreement without actually altering a word of the agreement and without Iran's consent. It would be a workaround to help the U.S. and its allies promise to punish Iran for actions that were not included in the 2015 deal. This plan wouldn't include Russia, China and Iran. The U.K. ambassador to the U.S., Sir Kim Darroch, told "Face the Nation" Sunday that Mr. Trump told British Prime Minister Theresa May there was no decision yet … [Read more...] about Could a workaround help the U.S. stay in Iran nuclear deal?
Sir Kim Darroch, the British ambassador to the United States, said that senior officials for the United Kingdom are "making progress" on negotiations with President Trump on the Iran nuclear deal as he continues to weigh whether the United States formally withdraws from the pact. "We have ideas we think that we can find some language, produce some action that meets the president's concerns," Darroch told CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday. Darroch said that British Prime Minister Theresa May spoke with the president and congratulated him on progress being made in North Korea but said messages were being heard from "all contacts in the administration" on where the Iran deal currently stands. The ambassador noted that the agreement is a "good deal" but "not a perfect deal." "The president is rightly concerned about Iran's regional activities, which are malign and damaging to security and stability. And he doesn't like the fact that ballistic missiles aren't covered. He's not happy about … [Read more...] about British ambassador to U.S. says U.K. “making progress” on Iran deal with Trump
