I longed for one of the incredulous reactions 60 Minutes correspondents like Mike Wallace and Ed Bradley were famous for when an interview source told a whopper, saying "come on" with a look that told the viewer they weren't buying what they were just told.
Two weeks ago, on his visit to Saudi Arabia , in a speech in Riyadh, Mr Trump blamed Iran for instability in the Middle East and urged Muslim countries to take the lead in combating radicalisation. In the past, flights from Qatar to destinations in North and Central Europe and the North Atlantic region used to pass through the sky of Bahrain , Kuwait, Iraq and Turkey while now they need to cross Iran's airspace and then that of Turkey before arriving in Europe, the official explained.
The allegations have drawn comparison to the 1970s Watergate scandal that brought down president Richard Nixon. Trump summarily dismissed Comey last month in the middle of an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the USA election past year.
Seven were killed and almost 50 wounded. They were shot dead in a hail of police gunfire. My family and I should not be linked with the attack , said Nasir Dar.

The new iPad Pro comes with a 10.5-inch screen that offers a refresh rate of 120Hz and which Apple describes as "the best display on the planet". Apple hasn't provided any updated figures in this regard, but there's a good chance the new Pencil gets very close to that figure.
A friend said he was never contacted by the police or MI5 about his concerns, adding: "I did my bit, I know other people did their bit but the authorities did not do their bit". The Metropolitan Police said the body was found Tuesday downstream from the bridge. The London attack, carried out by three knife-wielding men in a rented van, is apparently unconnected to the Manchester bombing .
But the mayor's remarks about being alarmed, which focused not on the subject of terror but on an increased police presence in the wake of the attack, were taken out of context. "When you're working in the aftermath of an attack like that, party politics is put to one side". Deputy White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Monday that she did not think it was correct to characterise Trump's tweets as "picking a fight" with Khan.
North Korea doesn't hold a candle to the United States militarily. Mattis responded that "like it or not, we are part of the world". "Once we have exhausted all possible alternatives, the Americans will do the right thing", Mattis said, drawing some laughter.
Trump has grown sour on Mr. Sessions, now his attorney general, blaming him for various troubles that have plagued the White House . He's giving a speech across town at a conservative political conference after that, Spicer said . Trump now has a collective total of close to 110 million people across different platforms, according to Spicer. CNN has previously reported that Trump was frustrated with Sessions' decision to recuse himself .
Later Tuesday, ABC reported that Sessions had suggested resigning over his rift with the president. Still, tensions linger. On Monday, Trump derided the revised travel ban and criticized his own Justice Department's handling of the controversial case.
One AK 56, 2 Chinese AK, 2 grenades, 3 IEDs, 270 AK rounds were recovered from the three killed terrorists, ANI reported.

US President Trump offered his deepest condolences for the victims to Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in a phone call, "underscoring the barbaric nature of the terrorist who are enemies of all civilized peoples", according to a statement by the White House.

According to a CNN report , Comey is expected to back up press reports that Trump tried to pressure him into getting the FBI to back off an investigation of Flynn.

Kelly also asked the Russian president what kind of relationship he had with the American president and if he had any damaging information on him. In the latest denial series and its continuity from Moscow, it has little or no impact on the political crisis of US.
Khan's words were taken out of context , however, as the mayor was talking about an increased police presence on the streets of the capital over the coming days. Boris Johnson, who repeatedly joined Goldsmith on the campaign trail, had said: "In Islam and the Labour party there is a struggle going on, and in both cases Khan - whatever his real views - is pandering to the extremists".
The bulk of the decisions which drive US climate action in the aggregate are made by cities , states , businesses, and civil society. Several of these same cities have jointly signed onto former Mayor Bloomberg's new plan, which is a coalition of cities, states, and companies who plan on coordinating with the United Nations directly to come up with carbon emissions targets .
Earlier in the day, Trump said via Twitter that his recent trip to Saudi Arabia is already paying off as Riyadh as well as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrein, Yemen, Libya's eastern-based government and the Maldives have all recently cut diplomatic ties with Qatar based on claims the country sponsors terrorism.
The President's eldest son criticized Khan for "attacking" his father, even though President Trump initiated the tweets. Khan hits back later when asked by Britain's Channel 4 News if he thought Trump's state visit to the United Kingdom should be called off.
Saudi Arabia is leading a clampdown on Qatar, accusing the tiny emirate of supporting pro-Iranian Islamist militants. Saudi Arabia and Bahrain have also revoked the licences of Qatar Airways and ordered its offices to close, while airspace across the region has been closed to flights from Doha.
What the creator loves about this bot is that considering that it is simply modifying the format, it is truly neutral. With more and more attention being placed on Trump's tweets as he's ramped up his online activity of late with some volatile (and contradictory) statements, the White House has been forced to address the issue .
The contemplation itself is an indication of the trouble in Afghanistan , as it indicates a massive failure of U.S. policy in the region. "This is really a question of what is the end state and how do we reach that end state, and that's part of the policy review that is still under development", he said.
The rampage followed a suicide bombing that killed 22 adults and children at a pop concert in Manchester two weeks ago, and an attack in March when five people died after a vehicle was driven into pedestrians on London's Westminster Bridge.

Roy was found dead from carbon monoxide poisoning in his vehicle at a auto park in MA in July 2014. In one of the texts , she allegedly wrote: "The time is right and you're ready, you just need to do it!" Prosecutors showed that before Roy's death, Carter had sent her friend a message that acknowledged that she should have stopped his suicide or called the police.

The other two attackers were named on Monday as Khuram Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane . "Our hearts go out to those who were injured, to the families of those who died, and to the people who witnessed this who weren't injured themselves".
And the need for this executive order is very clear. Trump, the sources said , believed Sessions' recusal led eventually to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel in charge of the investigation. The second version was also blocked by federal courts and last week, the Justice Department, headed by Sessions appealed to the Supreme Court . It then grabs a new direct quote and edits it to look like more traditional, official statements from the White House.
Addressing Trump's proposed plan to bar millions of people from Muslim majority countries from entering the United States, which the president said had been vindicated by the attacks, Khan told the AP he found the idea antithetical to American values.
The attacker also apparently killed himself during the incident at Resorts World Manila in Pasay City, a southwestern suburb of the capital. He stuffed a backpack with gambling chips, fired his assault rifle at TV screens and set gambling tables on fire by pouring gasoline onto them from a 2-liter bottle he carried, dela Rosa said .

The admission of India and Pakistan will enlarge the group?s footprints for the first time to South Asia from Central Asia. Pakistan has in the past sought to internationalise issues such as Kashmir in multilateral fora.

"So I dont think India and Pakistan should quarrel within the SCO, because they will find more reasons to cooperate", he said.
Wearing fake explosive vests, they then fled the van with large knives and attacked people in bars and restaurants. In response, a spokesperson for the London mayor said Khan "is busy working with the police, emergency services and the government to coordinate the response to this horrific and cowardly terrorist attack".
ABC News, the New York Times , Washington Post , Wall Street Journal and CNN all independently reported late Tuesday that Sessions was willing to step down if Trump no longer wanted him in his administration.
