New plagiarism row for Melania Trump as pamphlet bears uncanny likeness to 2014 version

Melania launches cyber bullying A booklet published by Melania Trump’s new campaign for children’s online safety bears an uncanny resemblance to a document released under Barack Obama’s administration.

Donald Trump’s wife gave an opening night address at the Republican National Convention in 2016 that was partly plagiarised from a speech by then first lady Michelle Obama.

Melania’s initiative, Be Best, which launched on Monday, has a page on the official White House website that said near the bottom: “Parents, click here to read Talking with Kids about Being Online, a booklet by First Lady Melania Trump and the Federal Trade Commission.”


Giuliani not ruling out chance of Trump taking the Fifth

Guiliani not ruling out Trump taking FifthPresident Donald Trump's new attorney, Rudy Giuliani, won't rule out the possibility that the president would assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in the swirling Russia investigation.

"How could I ever be confident of that?" the former New York City mayor and U.S. attorney said Sunday on ABC's "This Week."

Giuliani said despite Trump's openness to sit down with special counsel Robert Mueller, he would strongly advise Trump against it.

"I'm going to walk him into a prosecution for perjury like Martha Stewart?" Giuliani said. Stewart, the lifestyle maven, was convicted in 2004 of lying to investigators and obstruction in an insider trading case.


Revealed: Trump team hired spy firm for ‘dirty ops’ on Iran arms deal

Trump hired Israeli intel to find dirt on Obama's Iran deal makers

Aides to Donald Trump, the US president, hired an Israeli private intelligence agency to orchestrate a “dirty ops” campaign against key individuals from the Obama administration who helped negotiate the Iran nuclear deal, the Observer can reveal.

People in the Trump camp contacted private investigators in May last year to “get dirt” on Ben Rhodes, who had been one of Barack Obama’s top national security advisers, and Colin Kahl, deputy assistant to Obama, as part of an elaborate attempt to discredit the deal.

The extraordinary revelations come days before Trump’s 12 May deadline to either scrap or continue to abide by the international deal limiting Iran’s nuclear programme.

TVNL Comment:  Dirt seeks its own level.  Just how low can Trump get?  It seems there is no bottom here.


Giuliani: Trump is 'committed to' regime change in Iran

Guiliani" Trump is committed to Iran regime change

Rudy Giuliani pushed for regime change in Iran on Saturday, saying President Donald Trump is "as committed to regime change as we are."

It's "the only way to peace in the Middle East" and "more important than an Israeli-Palestinian deal," Trump's newest attorney in the ongoing Russia probe and former mayor of New York City told reporters after giving a speech to the Iran Freedom Convention for Democracy and Human Rights in Washington.

The speech was hosted by the Organization of Iranian-American Communities, a group that aims to promote democracy in the Islamic Republic and was supportive of the December protests there.

TVNL Comment: Guiliani wants war with Iran. How little he knows about the consequences of his words.  He also wants the stage he was denied by being left out of the Trump administration.  Fools rush in....


Security clearance for Russia probe may be hard for Giuliani: legal experts

Rudy Guiliani would have trouble getting clearance for probe: legal experts

Former New York mayor Giuliani told Reuters in an interview on Thursday that he would apply for top secret clearance, along with another Trump personal lawyer Jay Sekulow. Trump’s outgoing White House lawyer Ty Cobb has a security clearance but no one on his outside legal team has had once since lawyer John Dowd resigned in March.

“They said they would get it right away,” Giuliani said.

Giuliani’s work as a lawyer and security and business consultant during the past 16 years has included assignments on behalf of the government of Mexico City and the Qatari state oil company.


Trump Friend Tom Barrack Interviewed in Russia Probe

Trump friend Tom Barrack questioned by MuellerInvestigators working for special counsel Robert Mueller have interviewed one of President Donald Trump’s closest friends and confidants, California real estate investor Tom Barrack, The Associated Press has learned.

Barrack was interviewed as part of the federal investigation of possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election, according to three people familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations.

Mueller's team questioned Russian billionaire who attended Trump inauguration

Mueller's team question Billionsire

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team of investigators interviewed a Russian billionaire earlier this year, according to a New York Times report.

Investigators stopped the Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg at a New York-area airport after he stepped off a private plane, according to the Times. They proceeded to search his electronic devices and question him.

There is no indication that Vekselberg is suspected of wrongdoing. But the search and interview suggests that Mueller's team is homing in on the Trump campaign and inauguration committee's potential ties with Russians.
