Ex-Trump Associate Outlines Decades of Spy Work for U.S.

Felis Sater worked as spy for US

Felix Sater, a felon and former business associate of President Donald Trump, claims he was a crucial informant on some of the largest U.S. intelligence efforts of the past two decades, including the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, North Korea nuclear weapons and an attempted assassination of George W. Bush.

In a statement worthy of a John LeCarre novel, Sater boasted of an astounding array of espionage achievements on behalf of the U.S. Questions continue to swirl about whether Sater is helping U.S. Special Robert Mueller investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign. His statement, released Monday, doesn’t address that question.


French fashion designer Givenchy dies at 91

Hubert de Givenchy dies at 91

Audrey Hepburn glides through the credits of the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s in a black dress that is in no way little. It’s a long, narrow sheath, though she can still amble down Fifth Avenue unimpeded. The dress is sleeveless – yet gloves cover her arms far above her elbows – and collarless, with a striking back strap revealing her shoulder blades. Several generations have worshipped images of Hepburn in that dress as defining sophistication.

This was the work of Hubert de Givenchy, who has died aged 91. His clothes for Hepburn made her feel secure. “I put them on and I feel protected,” she said. He helped her to downplay the trampiness of Holly Golightly, who trips into Sing Sing prison in Givenchy’s lampshade hat, and shops at Tiffany’s in his tailored coat. No wonder Jacqueline Kennedy commanded Givenchy to outfit her state visit to Paris that year.


Russian spy: Highly likely Moscow behind attack, says Theresa May

Teresa may: Russia behind poisonings

Former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned by a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia, Theresa May has told MPs.

The PM said it was "highly likely" Russia was responsible for the Salisbury attack.

The Foreign Office summoned Russia's ambassador to provide an explanation.

Mrs May said if there is no "credible response" by the end of Tuesday, the UK would conclude there has been an "unlawful use of force" by Moscow.


White House officials alarmed at education secretary's '60 Minutes' performance

Betsy DeVos alarms WH with interviews

White House officials were alarmed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos' struggle to answer basic questions about the nation's schools and failure to defend the administration's newly proposed school safety measures during a tour of television interviews Sunday and Monday, according to two sources familiar with their reaction.
Though DeVos was sworn in to her Cabinet position 13 months ago, she stumbled her way through a pointed "60 Minutes" interview with CBS' Lesley Stahl Sunday night and was unable to defend her belief that public schools can perform better when funding is diverted to the expansion of public charter schools and private school vouchers. At one point, she admitted she hasn't "intentionally" visited underperforming schools.

Qatar has evidence of UAE's 'illicit influence' on Kushner: report

UAE influence on Jared KushnerQatari officials obtained evidence of the United Arab Emirates' (UAE) "illicit influence" on U.S. President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and other Trump associates, including top-level secret meetings but decided not to share it with U.S. Special Council Robert Mueller, NBC News reported Monday.

Qatari government officials who visited the United States earlier this year considered turning over information to Mueller that they believed demonstrated their neighbors in the Gulf were coordinating with Kushner to hurt Qatar, NBC News said, citing four people familiar with the matter.


Stormy Daniels offers to return 'hush agreement' money to speak freely

Stormy Daniels offers to returnsAdult film actress Stormy Daniels is offering to return the $130,000 payment she received from President Donald Trump's attorney in exchange for dissolving a so-called "Hush Agreement."

Last month, Michael Cohen said he paid $130,000 of his own money to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, ahead of the 2016 election in exchange for her silence regarding an alleged sexual encounter with Trump. Both Cohen and the White House have denied any sexual encounter between the President and Clifford.

CNN’s Jim Acosta: The Trump Trolls Who Want Me Dead

CNN's Jim Acosta: Trolls want me dead

After all the insults, acrimonious exchanges, accusations of grandstanding, attacks by Fox News personalities, and even occasional death threats from Donald Trump-loving trolls, Jim Acosta is just flesh and blood.

“Not everybody is comfortable taking this guy on,” CNN’s chief White House correspondent told The Daily Beast on Thursday—“this guy” meaning the president of the United States. “It’s uncomfortable. It makes me uncomfortable.”


3rd Explosion in Austin After 2 Package Bombs Linked

Austin bomb explosionsPolice are responding to another explosion in Austin that badly injured a woman, hours after a package bomb killed a teenager and wounded a woman in a different part of the city.

Austin-Travis County EMS tweeted that an explosion Monday in southeast Austin injured a woman in her 70s, who has been hospitalized with potentially life-threatening injuries. A second woman from that address has been hospitalized with an unrelated medical issue.


White House proposes arming teachers, backpedals on raising age to buy guns

WH proposes arming teachersThe Trump administration on Sunday night proposed providing some school personnel with "rigorous" firearms training and backed a bill to improve criminal background checks on gun buyers, but backpedaled on the idea of increasing the minimum age to buy certain firearms -- a policy President Donald Trump had said he would support.

The proposals, which come more than three weeks after the Parkland, Florida, school shooting, also include a plan to establish a commission chaired by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos that will recommend policy and funding proposals for school violence prevention, including possible age restrictions on some firearms purchases.
