Jared Kushner under fire over reported talks with Russian ambassador

The Washington Post report also divulges that Kushner also sought a bug proof communication line with Kremlin (official residence of the President of the Russian Federation) before Trump took office.

In a separate development, the Washington Post also reported that the Senate intelligence committee, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race, has asked Trump’s political organization to produce all documents, emails and phone records dating from his campaign’s launch in June 2015.

Reuters has reported that Kushner had at least three previously undisclosed contacts with Kislyak previous year, including two phone calls between April and November.

Jamie Gorelick, a lawyer for Mr. Kushner, said in a statement that her client “participated in thousands of calls in this time period”. He has no recollection of the calls as described.

Mr McLaughlan said, providing the allegations were true: “I don’t want to overstate because obviously there is a lot we don’t know”.

Investigators have searched 17 properties, including Abedi’s home in south Manchester and other houses in nearby districts. Police disclosed new details about Abedi’s’ movements, saying he returned to Britain four days before the attack.

But the Trumps were also pictured holding hands on other occasions on the trip.

The sources stress that the talk between Kushner and the Russian envoy about communications was focused on the USA response to the crisis in Syria and other policy-related matters.

Kushner discussed using Russian diplomatic properties to prevent United States intelligence services from monitoring communications with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, according to the Washington Post.

According to NBC News, Kushner was under the FBI’s investigations, which were launched July previous year and now stretched over the president’s family and close acquaintances. Flynn remains under federal investigation in Virginia over his foreign business ties and was interviewed by the FBI in January about his contacts with Kislyak.

Evan McMullin, an independent candidate in the 2016 presidential race, said the report raised the stakes for Mr Kushner.

Former Obama administration staffers told the Washington Post that Trump’s transition team never sought to set up communications with Russian Federation through the White House.

In addition to those killed, 116 people have received medical treatment at Manchester hospitals for wounds from the blast. Greater Manchester Police tweeted that the man was taken into custody in the suburb of Moss Side.

Material from Reuters and Deutsche Presse-Agentur was used in this report.

According to officials who spoke to the Post, while Russian Federation frequently sends out misinformation, it’s not clear what leaking this information would accomplish, “particularly at a time when the Kremlin still saw the prospect of dramatically improved relations with Trump”, lending to its credibility.

Todd Hinnen, the former acting head of the Justice Department’s national security division, said it would be easy to read too much into investigators’ interest in Kushner.

One former United States senior intelligence official was quoted as saying that the suggestion of a secret channel with the Kremlin “seems extremely naive or absolutely crazy”. President Trump has yet to comment publically on the matter.

Other news sites have pointed outmore instances where Mrs Trump seemed reluctant to hold her husband’s hand.

As McMaster and Cohn took the stage in the briefing room, a television screen just over their shoulder played CNN, which at that moment aired a discussion of the Kushner-Russia story under a “breaking news” banner.

Tarasenko scores 2, Blues beat Predators 3-2 to even series

Vladimir Tarasenko, Blues – The Russian right wing scored two goals for St Louis, including the game victor.

Silfverberg knocked in a feed from Josh Manson at 4:56 of the third to make it 5-3. “It was obviously nice to play in front of our fans and it was a big win”.

PENGUINS: Carl Hagelin will be a game-time decision to return to the lineup Saturday night for Game 2 against Washington.

The speed and scoring prowess of Nashville, on full display against the Blackhawks in the first round, was a highlight once again in Game 3 vs. the Blues, when even blueliners like Ellis and Roman Josi had a hand in putting pucks past Allen.

The last time the Ducks lost their first two at home, the Predators knocked them out of the first round a year ago in seven games.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Predators are favored at home tonight, as they are getting odds of -145 to win.

The overnight mark for NBC’s Sunday afternoon broadcast was a 9.4 rating, representing 95,060 households in the Nashville market area.

The Blues rallied for two third period goals and a 3-2 victory over the Predators Friday in St. Louis.

Nashville came into the postseason nearly an afterthought, but they swept top seeds the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round, the first such sweep by an eighth seed in National Hockey League history. He made 31 saves.

The Ducks want to get out of rabid pro-Oilers environment in Edmonton during the break in the series.

Three seconds after its power play ended, Nashville opened scoring at 10:34 of the first period.

After being held without a point in the Predators’ first playoff game, Ellis has now picked up at least one point in every playoff game since them and is now riding a six-game point streak.

Nash scores victor as Rangers edge Canadiens, even series at 2-2
Lundqvist made just 22 saves but he stopped a pair of breakaways in the first period from Mitchell and Andrew Shaw. The Rangers’ previous home playoff win was in Game 1 of the 2015 Eastern Conference Final against Tampa Bay.

Trailing with less than 17 minutes to play and staring at the possibility of a 2-0 series deficit on their home ice, the St. Louis Blues were rescued by their resident superstar.

The Predators drew a 60 share during the broadcast, meaning 60 percent of all televisions that were turned on in the Nashville area were tuned into the hockey game. That would be the game-winner, as Leon Draisaitl iced the game with an empty-net goal with 1:05 to play, giving the Oilers a 1-0 lead in the series.

Kris Russell collected two assists for Edmonton. Meanwhile, the Minnesota Wild predictably floundered against the St. Louis Blues, losing in five games. They are trying to advance to the first Western Conference finals in franchise history.

The defenseman scored Sunday when he swatted a loose puck toward – and ultimately into – the net.

Getzlaf beat Talbot with a wrist shot from the hashmarks with 8:09 remaining in the first.

Russell finally gave the Rogers Place crowd something to cheer about when his shot from the point deflected off Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Maroon and past Gibson with 40 seconds left in the opening period.

Ronaldo leads Madrid to 3-0 win over Atletico in CL semis

Neville claims that Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored his seventh Champions League hat-trick in the 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, is a greater player than Barcelona’s Lionel Messi. Ronaldo has been revving up to this moment all season and now that he’s finally unleashed his inner Hulk, we’re still seeing him do things that have never been done before. “It’s wonderful. Until the last chance expires, we will play (to reach the final)”, the Argentine told reporters.

Atletico coach Diego Simeone had warned of a strong start from Real, and that is exactly what his team faced.

The famous number seven headed the home side ahead in the 10th minute of the contest, before netting twice in the second period to ensure that reigning European champions, Real Madrid, would take a three-goal advantage into next week’s second leg at the Vicente Calderon. So how about a 2nd hat-trick in back-to-back Champions League games and against the best defense in Europe [see Ronaldo vs. Atlético Madrid, 2 May 2017]? Illustrious names including Carlo Ancelotti, Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola and Marcelo Lippi, but none have retained it. Zidane could be the first to do it, and who knows, such an achievement may not be matched.

Federal gov’t relaxes nutrition standards for school lunches
Schools have been facing increasing fiscal burdens as they attempt to adhere to existing, stringent nutrition requirements. The former standards required all grains, including croutons and the breading on chicken patties, to be whole grain rich.

Not to take any credit away from the man himself, but Zinedine Zidane deserves a good portion of the praise. We will have to work hard and fight for it. We managed the game very well tonight, we prepared well for it and were aware of our strengths and theirs. We always had one more player in midfield.

“I’m not sure whether we’ve put in a better performance since I took over. What sets them apart from every other player, is that they deliver on the big occasions”.

It was also the former Manchester United forward’s 42nd Real hat-trick, 52nd strike in the tournament’s knockout stages and his 13th in a semi-final, while his tally for Los Blancos across all competitions stands at 399 in 389 games.

The West’s top seed has had seven days off since completing a 4-0 whitewashing of the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round. Rivers started his second straight after missing the series’ first four games while being out with a strained left hamstring.

“We’re content, very happy and we can enjoy it, but we still have a long way to go in the Champions League and LaLiga”.

Victory extended Real’s hex over Atletico in the Champions League over the past four seasons. Ronaldo now has 103 goals in the Champions League, not counting one he scored in the qualifiers, which is three more than Atletico has scored since the new format was created in 1992.

On his ovation from Real fans at the Bernabeu, he added: “I just want you not to whistle me”. “I feel relaxed, more than anything else, more than ever”.

Tusk said Europeans needed “solid guarantees for citizens and their families, who will be affected by Brexit on both sides – this must be number-one priority for EU and the United Kingdom”.

President Tusk tweeted the outcome of their discussions, saying: “Guidelines adopted unanimously”.

French President Francois Hollande warned on Saturday that Britain must pay the price for Brexit as European Union leaders met to adopt guidelines for negotiations.

“The consequences would be serious if France turned away from the EU”, Hollande warned for his last summit ahead of next week’s vote in France.

Border controls between the north and south were eased as part of the Good Friday Agreement, the 1998 accord that brought peace to Northern Ireland after decades of sectarian conflict.

This puts the European Union on a collision course with No 10, as Mrs May has said she wants to negotiate a new trade deal at the same time.

Any cracks in Europe’s unity are expected to emerge when the sides must agree on future ties with Britain, with export powers like the Netherlands urging a soft touch.

Oil falls as expected United States fuel-supply gain counters crude drop

Oil traded near its lowest close in a month as investors weighed the outlook for shrinking USA crude stockpiles against forecasts for increasing fuel supplies.

Alongside with Iran and Nigeria, Libya was exempt from the OPEC oil output cut deal reached in late 2016 in Vienna.

The better question, though-the one really worth discussing-is this: how long will it take before this market intervention is finally able to eat away at the global glut of oil that precipitated the crude price collapse?

Crude oil futures plunged to their lowest settlement since late November ahead of data on U.S. crude oil stockpiles. Libya is pumping oil at the highest rate since December 2014, Mustafa Sanalla, chairman of the National Oil Corp., said.

Southern rock music pioneer Gregg Allman dies

Reaction to the death of Southern rock music legend Gregg Allman at age 69: “IVE TRIED.WORDS ARE IMPOSSIBLE GUI GUI FOREVER, CHOOCH” – Allman’s ex-wife Cher, via Twitter.

“It is with deep sadness that we announce that Gregg Allman, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia”, it said.

He’d recently cancelled all his remaining concerts for 2017, refunding fans. At separate times in the new millennium, hepatitis C treatments, a liver transplant and lung surgery sidelined him for months, but he always returned to the road with the Allmans or leading an ace solo band.

Mitch McConnell may be Washington’s master political tactician, but the Senate majority leader’s failure to bring an “Obamacare” repeal bill across the finish line appears as a rare and costly miscalculation.

The rest of Trump’s economic agenda is now sitting on the runway, idling, as the health care bill remains bogged down.

The surprise development leaves the legislation’s fate uncertain while raising new doubts about whether President Donald Trump will ever make good on his many promises to erase his predecessor’s signature legislative achievement. He said he had not seen the advertisements, but that the President has contacted Republican senators who oppose the bill.

The divide between the demands of the GOP base and the skepticism of the broader electorate helps explain why Senate Republican leaders have been forced to delay a vote as they scramble for the 50 votes needed to pass a measure.
