Australia can use IPL experience to topple India in T20s: Michael Kasprowicz

first_imgFormer Australian pacer Michael Kasprowicz has backed Steve Smith’s men to topple India in the three-match T20I series beginning Sunday, saying their experience in the Indian Premier League (IPL) will play a key role.Ten members of Australia’s 14-man squad for the T20I series played in this year’s IPL, including captain Smith (Rising Pune Supergiant) and David Warner (Sunrisers Hyderabad).Australia were comprehensively beaten 1-4 in the recently concluded five-match ODI series and would be looking for a much better performance when they face the Men in Blue in the shortest version of the game.”It always difficult when you are playing cricket in another country, and especially here in India in the most challenging conditions, for Australian players to have faced. So, I think for the young players over here, they will learn, they’ll have some experience,” Kasprowicz told ANI.”What excites me most about the Australians and the T20 format is that they are experienced here, having played the IPL. So, we are really looking forward to that experience come to the fore and showing what Australia can really do,” he added.The 45-year-old also heaped praise on the Indian spinners for their exceptional performance in the five-match ODI series and cautioned Steve Smith and Co. to be wary of them.Australia T20 squad: Steve Smith (c), David Warner, Jason Behrendorff, Dan Christian, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Patrick Cummins, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Glenn Maxwell, Tim Paine, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa.India T20 squad: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Axar Patel.advertisementT20 FixturesOctober 7: JSCA International Stadium, RanchiOctober 10: Barsapara Stadium, GuwahatiOctober 13: Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabadlast_img read more

Mbappe named worst-value transfer

Kylian Mbappe’s move from Paris Saint-Germain has been named the worst-value deal of the transfer window, while Mohamed Salah’s switch to Liverpool is the best bargain.Salah 11/1 to score 2+ SaturdayThe CIES Football Observatory has released analysis on the deals conducted in the last window, which found PSG got the worst value of transfers in Europe’s top-five leagues in landing Mbappe from Monaco in an initial loan that they will make permanent for €180 million.

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Their algorithm, which “scientifically estimates fair transfer values” rated Mbappe, 18, to be worth €92.6m, meaning PSG will overpay by €87.4m in the deal, once add-ons have been taken into account.Liverpool, meanwhile, landed the best bargain, according to the Observatory, with Salah bought from Roma for a cool €50m despite being valued at €69.4m.pic.twitter.com/f319mMqrgA— Mohamed Salah (@22mosalah) August 24, 2017Other teams guilty of overpaying were Barcelona and Manchester City. The analysis showed Ousmane Dembele, whose total cost could reach €147m, was added for a fee that was €51.2m higher than a fair value of €95.8m.City, meanwhile, splashed out €57.5m on Benjamin Mendy, who was listed as a €28.5m talent.Pep Guardiola’s side were also on the wrong end of another deal. Of the sides to land the best bargains after Liverpool’s move to add Salah, Sevilla’s signing of Nolito from City for €10m — when he had been valued at €27.4m — came in second.Chelsea’s €39m move for Antonio Rudiger , who was rated as a €54.2m player, was third-most shrewd addition.The CIES Football Observatory said: “As usual, a negative gap was measured between amounts paid and values estimated. “On average, the former were 30 per cent lower than the latter. It is the biggest difference observed since the implementation of the transfer value algorithm. This finding reflects an acceleration of the inflation occurring in the transfer market.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

Tsunami Alert Cancelled for Jamaica

first_imgOn January 9th, a magnitude 7.6 earthquake occurred between the Coast of Honduras and the Cayman Islands. The epicenter was located at latitude 17.5 north, longitude 83.6 west at a depth of 20 miles. A tsunami threat message was issued for Jamaica but was later cancelled.The Earthquake Unit reported that although the threat was minimal, this was a regionally generated message received from the Pacific Warning Tsunami Center. The effects of it could have been felt minutes after the earthquake occurred. Because Jamaica is located in a seismically active zone, we are susceptible to earthquakes Tsunamis and due to the nature of this early onset hazard, there is sometimes not enough time for officials to raise an alarm or warn coastal communities so we are asking Jamaicans to know the signs and act accordingly. In an event of a Tsunami you man not feel an earthquake but if you see the sea withdraw an unusual distance and/or hear a loud rumble/roar, get to higher ground.What is a Tsunami Advisory A tsunami advisory is issued due to the threat of a potential tsunami which may produce strong currents or waves dangerous to those in or near the water. Coastal regions historically prone to damage due to strong currents induced by tsunamis are at the greatest risk. The threat may continue for several hours after the arrival of the initial wave, but significant widespread inundation is not expected for areas under an advisory. Appropriate actions to be taken by local officials may include closing beaches, evacuating harbors and marinas, and the repositioning of ships to deep waters when there is time to safely do so. Advisories are normally updated to continue the advisory, expand/contract affected areas, upgrade to a warning, or cancel the advisory.Additionally the Office of Disaster preparedness & Emergency Management is reminding the Public that during an earthquake it is important to stay calm. If you are inside a building, get under a sturdy desk, cover your head and hold on. If you are outdoors, go to an open area away from trees, buildings, utility poles and wires.last_img read more

De Villepin Praises Morocco’s Leadership Role in Maghreb, Africa

Dakhla, Morocco- Speaking in the Moroccan city of Dakhla in the so-called Western Sahara on Saturday, Former French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin emphasized the projection of Morocco’s political and economic power in West Africa, highlighting the central role that the kingdom can play with France in the promotion of peace and prosperity in the African continent.In an impassioned plea for strengthening the dialogue between the Maghreb, Africa, and Europe, the former head of the French Executive first reviewed the crises plaguing the Mediterranean region. In this regard, he praised the role played by Morocco in the pacification of Libya by hosting and supporting political talks between rival Libyan factions.Dominique de Villepin said that he opposes in the strongest terms any military intervention in Libya, adding that any military intervention could pave the way for jihadists to find a safe haven in Libya. This is not the first time the former French Prime Minister has voiced his opposition to the use of military intervention as means to pacify countries that are plagued by armed conflicts. His speech in Dakhla recalls his memorable speech in early 2003 before the United Nations Security Council where he expressed France’s fierce opposition to the US and UK war against Iraq.Warning against the collateral victims of anti-terrorist wars, especially among defenseless civilians, Dominique de Villepin noted that an effective fight against the terrorist threat requires the establishment of “growth strategies.”“It is wrong to reduce this struggle to its strict security dimension, since ‘for a terrorist killed, there will always be two, or more, to replace it,’” he said, drawing attention to the war of images that ultimately serves only the “glorification” of terrorist in the eyes of ordinary citizens, including in Europe, where the recruitment of participants for jihad is reaching alarming proportions, he noted.Regarding the Maghreb and Africa, Dominique de Villepin shed light on Moroccan dynamism politically, economically, and socially. In calling for the construction of what he called a “common house”, the former French Prime Minister made clear it that “this house is in need of an architect,” and that Morocco and France certainly have a central role to play.Morocco’s stability, peace, sustained economic development, social policy, and the fact that it puts the human element at the heart of its strategy, give it the capacity and legitimacy to shine in Africa, said Dominique de Villepin, while praising the “tireless efforts of His Majesty King Mohammed VI” to make things move on the continent. read more

UN concerned about precarious conditions of 5000 Rwandan asylum seekers in Burundi

The United Nations refugee agency today expressed its concern over the fate of thousands of Rwandans who have fled to neighbouring Burundi fearing retribution from village courts set up to try people suspected of involvement in the 1994 genocide.Though chiefly concerned about some 5,000 Rwandan asylum seekers living in makeshift conditions along the two countries’ border areas, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) also said that nearly 7,000 Rwandans have entered Burundi since early April, many citing threats and rumours of massacres and revenge attacks.In mid-April, UNHCR transferred some 1,800 Rwandan asylum seekers further inland in Burundi, but Burundian authorities halted that operation by the end of the month. That left about 5,000 Rwandans in precarious conditions near the border. The UNHCR said it wants them moved to more secure areas.With some 9,000 local “gacaca” tribunals beginning their work across the country, officials from both Rwanda and Burundi are conducting a two-week campaign aimed at easing the fears of the asylum seekers and encouraging them to return home voluntarily, UNHCR said.In the meantime, UN agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are providing emergency humanitarian assistance on an ad hoc basis to the thousands gathered at the border. UNHCR has distributed blankets, plastic sheeting and kitchen sets to the asylum seekers, while several NGOs are providing medical care. But to date, this assistance remains limited. read more

Womens Basketball Karlie Cronins multisport multischool journey has landed her on Ohio

Ohio State guard Karlie Cronin runs down the court during the Buckeyes game against the Boilermakers on Feb 18. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorWhen asked to take a few minutes to answer questions about one of her former players, Karlie Cronin’s former coach responded, “About Karlie? Oh, I’ll do anything for Karlie Cronin.”Cronin, a junior from Fairfax, Virginia, has spent time with three different college teams, which has ended at Ohio State as a walk-on.Her journey as a basketball player began as a child, but has taken many turns since then. In addition to basketball, Cronin picked up lacrosse during her sophomore year of high school. Aggie McCormick, Cronin’s AAU coach, said balancing multiple sports at one time could be a challenge for some — not for Cronin. “She has a motor that is unbelievable to me,” McCormick said. “She could go from practice to practice all day long and never run out of energy. It’s far beyond normal. Even having come straight from hours of lacrosse practice she would do cartwheels around her teammates on the court. I have coached some of the greatest kids in the country and she still amazes me.”  McCormick has been coaching for 25 years and is the founder of the Fairfax Stars AAU team. She keeps in touch with Cronin throughout the year and receives visits from her whenever she returns home for breaks. McCormick said Cronin frequently goes back to practice with the team and never misses a workout.Cronin had been playing basketball since she was 9 years old. Unfortunately, she suffered a torn ACL during her junior year of high school and could not play during July, a key recruiting prior for young athletes. As a result of her injury, she ended up at Southern Methodist University, a smaller Division-I progam than she had hoped for. But that did not last longAfter playing just two games at SMU in 2015, Cronin needed a change —and a big one at that. She was neither enjoying the school nor the basketball program as much as she had anticipated and decided to transfer to Ohio State for the following fall.Her experience was so negative that she was set on changing sports.“I was a little burnt out on basketball so I just made a highlight tape and sent that to schools to be recruited for lacrosse,” she said.Although she did enjoy playing lacrosse again in a college setting, Cronin said that she “missed the aggression that comes with basketball.”After one season as a college lacrosse player, she walked on to Ohio State to give basketball another shot. She practiced during the summer with her AAU team to prepare for the season.In her first season on the Buckeyes’ basketball team, she appeared in 20 games, but played just 52 minutes and scored two points.“Even if she’s on the bench a lot of the time, I know she loves being out there,” McCormick said. “She fought relentlessly to find a school that she could play basketball at.”Cronin seems to have handled what would appear to be a difficult transition quite smoothly. “She acclimated herself very quickly,” Ohio State women’s basketball head coach Kevin McGuff said. “She was excited about playing from Day One and works incredibly hard to do what she can to contribute to the team and the program.”Whether that hard work will translate into playing time remains unknown. But given the exit of five key seniors from the team, an increased reliance on Cronin might come sooner than many people expect. read more

Rows over study which claims antidepressants double suicide risks

first_imgAnti-depressants could double the risk of feelings that could lead to suicide, according to a new study which has triggered furious rows.Researchers behind the Danish review said the study demolished “potentially lethal misconceptions” about the safety of the drugs, which are taken by more than 4 million Britons a year.The analysis examined 13 studies, to see what impact the drugs had on patients who did not suffer from depression.Scientists said these patients were selected, because previous studies linking suicide and antidepressants had been dismissed by those who said the deaths must have been caused by the mental health condition, rather than the pills.

Prof Phil Cowen, Professor of Psychopharmacology, at Oxford University, said: “These side-effects are clinically significant, frequently distressing and an important topic for discussion between patient and clinician. “However, the notion that they are necessarily indicative of violence and suicide seems to me rather like arguing that transient annoyance with a colleague is much the same thing as attempted murder.”Earlier this year, a review led by Prof Gotzsche suggested that antidepressants double the risk of suicide and aggressive behaviour in under-18s. ‘The notion that these signs are necessarily indicative of violence and suicide seems to me like arguing that transient annoyance with a colleague is much the same thing as attempted murder’Prof Phil Cowen, Professor of Psychopharmacology, Oxford University sad child Concerns have previously been raised about the safety of anti-depressants for childrenCredit:Alamycenter_img “This manuscript claims to show that antidepressants double the risk of suicide and violence, but it does not. The methodology is fatally flawed and leads to conclusions that are highly misleading”, he said. “If ‘nervousness, anxiety, tremor, bad dreams and agitation events’ are risk factors for suicide or violence, then probably the majority of people in the UK would be at risk of suicide or violence, which obviously isn’t so,” Prof Goodwin said. The review found that when healthy patients were given the pills, levels of side-effects, such as anxiety and nervousness almost doubled.Prof Peter Gotzsche, of the Nordic Cochrane Centre, said such feelings could be considered as “precursors to suicidality or violence”.He said too many people were reliant on drugs to deal with everyday problems, without realising that they could increase their risk of suicide.

Jack the Rippers victims were not prostitutes

Dr Rubenhold has uncovered the interesting lives of the women, blaming “sexist” historical policemen and researchers for erasing… It remains one of the most enduring mysteries in British criminal history with budding detectives desperate to unveil the true identity of Jack The Ripper.   But less is known about the serial killer’s victims, who were assumed to have been prostitutes targeted by the Ripper, because many became so fascinated with the perpetrator. Now historian Dr Hallie Rubenhold has gone back to the archives to uncover the true biographies of the women killed in 1888, which reveal they had varied lives, from working in a coffee shop to living with a friend of the Prince of Wales.

Zombies Run iPhone app will keep you running literally

first_imgGamers have long been stereotyped as people who do not like to leave the confines of their couches. The most exercise they get is when they walk to the door to pay the pizza delivery guy. Okay, we know that’s obviously untrue, but one Kickstarter project is mixing gaming with running to make sure that stereotype is squashed. Not only that, but there are zombies involved, so the geekery level is high — along with your pulse rate.Zombies, Run! is an iPhone app that mixes the fun of zombie games like Dead Island and Left 4 Dead with fitness/running apps that are usually somewhat boring. What better motivation to keep you running than the fear of having zombies attack you and eat your endorphin-heightened brains?Like all good zombie movies, books, or games, Zombies, Run! slowly unveils the story behind the influx of the zombies as you get further along with each mission. “There’s a deeper mystery to be uncovered,” the Kickstarter page says. The game will allow you to discover websites, solve puzzles, and view documents so you can uncover the truth of what happened in the world.The goal of the game is to rebuild civilization after a zombie apocalypse. To do this, you actually have to go out and run around in the real world where you can collect ammo, medicine, batteries, and spare parts that will let you build up and expand your base. You’ll get clues, orders, and stories through your headphones. You can even pretend you’re running around at night avoiding zombies when you’re actually running on the safety of your gym’s treadmill. You’ll get to hear the frightening moans and gurgles of the zombies that are right on your heels, making sure you keep running for your life.Since it’s obviously not safe to be looking at your phone while running, all you have to do is press start on your handset and let the game do all the talking. When you’ve returned home, press stop, and you can then distribute the supplies you’ve acquired during your mission to the people in the game who need them.The app records your distance, time, pace, and calories burned on each mission, and you can hear audio notifications of your time, distance, and pace during your run. The creators of the game turned to Kickstarter for help with funding and they’ve already surpassed their goal of $12,500. Not only that, but the app that was originally only intended for iPhone and iPod touch will now feature an Android version. The Android version is due out by May 2012.All the app needs now is permission to use the soundtrack from “28 Days Later” to really scare the bejeesus out of you and get you to run like hell.Check out the video below to see Zombies, Run! in action.last_img read more

Elderly Chania woman refuses to part ways with Oscar her 22 year

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A 97 year woman refused to move to a nursing home that wouldn’t accept her dog, not wanting to leave her 22 year old furry friend. The Chania woman’s late husband had found an abandoned puppy on the streets, picked him up and brought him home. They named him Oscar. With advancing health problems, it was imperative for the woman to move to a nursing home. But the home she was to be sent to did not accept animals. But her devotion to her dog made it difficult for the woman who also did not have any friends or family that she could hand the dog over to. It was only until a neighbour was said to have contacted a local animal welfare organisation, informing them of the situation. From there, Oscar was adopted by a couple in Rethymno, his new owners saying that Oscar “seems to comply well with the new conditions despite his advanced age,” Keep Talking Greece reported. “He still remains cautious but enjoys the walks and the treats given from a loving hand.” The Chania woman was extremely thankful that her friend of 22 years was able to find a new, safe home.last_img read more

Cosplay Gallery New York Comic Con 2017 Part 2

first_imgStay on target Hands-On: Monster Energy Supercross is More Exciting Than Soft DrinksCosplay Gallery: New York Comic Con 2017, Part 1 The beginning of October brings pumpkin spice everything, Halloween décor, and New York Comic Con. This past week, New York Comic Con greeted the nerd masses from all over the world at the Jacob K. Javitz Convention Center from October 5th through October 8th. As East Coast’s answer to San Diego Comic Con and the largest convention in North America, the crowds of enthusiastic fans were in full effect. Whether they were there to meet their favorite artists and celebrities, pick up some convention exclusives, or dress up as their favorite fictional characters (or all of the above!).Despite the muggy autumn weather in New York and the cramped conditions of a convention center that’s currently in the process of expanding, nearly 200,000 attendees congregated to partake in the spectacle that is New York Comic Con. Since this year’s show featured the relocation of Artist Alley to a smaller ballroom and various events/panels taking place off-site, the lobby and the primary exhibit halls actually ended up being the breeziest and most bearable areas to wander. This year’s show also included a SyFy fan lounge, a quiet room, and an artist alley lounge, in case you wanted to take a break from the crowded crowds in a slightly-less-crowded-but-still-kind-of-crowded area. One of my favorite things about New York Comic Con is witnessing the pure dedication and artistry of con-goers dressed up in some of the most clever, creative, and often unwieldy costumes, regardless of the massive crowds. From My Hero Academia to Twin Peaks to New Gods, cosplayers proudly wore their hearts on their sleeves as they portrayed their fandom faves throughout the convention. Luckily, I was able to capture some of New York Comic Con’s finest in cosplay craftsmanship – check out some of the amazing cosplayers I met last week!All photos by Betty Felon.View as: One Page Slides1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26.

Deputies Florida woman on meth arrested for running through traffic with baby

first_img Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. NEAR OCALA, Fla. (WSVN) — A North Central Florida mother was arrested after she was caught on camera running through traffic with a baby in her arms.Authorities got a call that had even veteran sheriff’s deputies in disbelief: a woman who later admitted to being on drugs was seen darting in and out of traffic holding a little baby.“She was acting very erratically,” said Marion County Sheriff’s Office PIO, Lauren Lettelier, “darting in and out of cars, barking at cars as some witnesses referred to, and she had a very young child in her hands.”According to deputies, the incident happened Monday.Kayla Morgan was seen holding a baby draped over her right arm as if the child were a jacket.Body cam video from the first deputy called to the scene showed the woman running from police while the deputy is heard saying, “I just want to know what’s going on with you. You’re not in trouble.”“She thought the deputy was a monster who was going to suck out her blood,” said Lettelier. “I mean, that’s what these drugs do to people.” According to deputies, when they tried to stop her, Morgan started walking in front of cars, ran from the deputy and eventually dropped the baby head first on the side of the highway.“So she was running away from the deputy,” said Lettelier, “and you can see her running off the road and running into the grass. You can see the baby falling to the ground, and it is quite disturbing to see.”Once arrested, deputies said Morgan told them she had taken meth and other drugs.Morgan’s mother said her daughter has been dealing with postpartum depression and an abusive relationship. She also added that Morgan loves her son more than “life itself.”However, right now, Morgan’s infant son is in the hospital with a skull fracture from that fall.In the meantime, she is facing a judge on charges of aggravated child abuse and resisting an officer.Investigators said Morgan admitted to taking the drug “molly” and methamphetamine for three days before the incident. last_img read more

Mueller submits Russia collusion report

first_imgIn this 21 June 2017 file photo, former FBI director Robert Mueller, the special counsel probing Russian interference in the 2016 election, departs Capitol Hill following a closed door meeting in Washington. AP File PhotoSpecial Counsel Robert Mueller on Friday handed in a confidential report on his investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election and any potential wrongdoing by US president Donald Trump, setting off a clamor from lawmakers in both parties for the document’s quick release.Marking the end of his nearly two-year investigation that ensnared former Trump aides and Russian intelligence officers and cast a cloud over the Republican businessman’s presidency, Mueller submitted the report to Attorney General William Barr, the Justice Department said.Mueller did not recommend any further indictments, a senior Justice Department official said, in a sign that there might be no more criminal charges against Trump associates arising from the investigation. Throughout his investigation, Mueller has brought charges against 34 people and three companies.The big question now is whether the report contains allegations of wrongdoing by Trump himself or exonerates him.Mueller, a former FBI director, had been examining since May 2017 whether Trump’s campaign conspired with Moscow to try to influence the election and whether the Republican president later unlawfully tried to obstruct his investigation.Trump has denied collusion and obstruction. Russia has denied election interference. Trump has sought to discredit the investigation, calling it a “witch hunt” and accusing Mueller of conflicts of interest. But he said on Wednesday he does not mind if the public is allowed to see the report.The report was not immediately made public. Barr, the top US law enforcement officer and a Trump appointee, will have to decide how much of it to disclose. Barr told lawmakers in a letter he may be able to provide the “principal conclusions” of Mueller’s findings to Congress as soon as this weekend and added that he was “committed to as much transparency as possible.”Under regulations governing special counsel investigations, the attorney general must share an outline of Mueller’s report with Democratic and Republican leaders of the judiciary committees in Congress but it is largely up to him what to make public.Key Trump aides, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, national security adviser Michael Flynn and personal lawyer Michael Cohen, have already either been convicted or pleaded guilty to charges brought by Mueller. None of those charges, however, directly related to the question of collusion between the campaign and Moscow. The Justice Department has a policy that sitting presidents cannot face criminal charges.Lawmakers from both parties called for prompt release of the report.House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer – the two top Democrats in Congress – said it was “imperative” the full report be made public, that Barr not give Trump and his team a “sneak preview” of the findings and that the White House not be allowed to interfere in decisions about what parts are made public.They said the investigation focused on questions that “go to the integrity of our democracy itself: whether foreign powers corruptly interfered in our elections, and whether unlawful means were used to hinder that investigation.”Openness and TransparencySenate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the top Republican in Congress, said, “The attorney general has said he intends to provide as much information as possible. As I have said previously, I sincerely hope he will do so as soon as he can, and with as much openness and transparency as possible.”The White House has not received or been briefed on the report, spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said, adding that “we look forward to the process taking its course.”When the Justice Department announced the arrival of the report, Trump was at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, where he met on Friday with a group of Caribbean leaders.Staff members at the private club were setting up for a Lincoln Day dinner fundraiser for a local branch of the Republican Party. Programs for the event featured an image of a $5 bill with 19th century President Abraham Lincoln sporting a red Trump campaign hat with the slogan “Keep America Great” on it.Donald Trump Jr, the president’s eldest son, posted a picture on Twitter of his sons on a fishing trip. “Great day on the water with my little men for their spring break,” he wrote.Representative Steve Scalise, the No 2 House Republican and a strong ally of the president, expressed confidence the report would not find collusion with Russia.”The reports that there will be no new indictments confirm what we’ve known all along: there was never any collusion with Russia. The only collusion was between Democrats and many in the media who peddled this lie because they continue to refuse to accept the results of the 2016 election,” Scalise said.Even if the Mueller report exonerates Trump, that may not spell the end to his legal troubles. Cohen pleaded guilty in August to campaign finance violations in a case overseen by federal prosecutors in Manhattan, who said in court filings that Cohen carried out the crimes at the direction of Trump.The US Attorney’s Office in Manhattan is also looking at the spending of Trump’s inaugural committee and business practices at the Trump Organization, the family’s company.US intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow meddled in the election with a campaign of email hacking and online propaganda aimed at sowing discord in the United States, hurting Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and helping Trump.Mueller’s investigators have looked into a large number of contacts between people associated with Trump’s campaign and Russia such as a meeting in New York’s Trump Tower between members of the president’s inner circle including his eldest son and a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer five months before the election.Mueller sought to determine whether the campaign coordinated with Moscow, though it was not immediately clear whether the special counsel found evidence of a conspiracy.Questions About ObstructionMueller also examined whether Trump committed obstruction of justice by trying to hinder the investigation, looking into acts such as urging FBI director James Comey to drop a probe of Flynn’s contacts with Russia, the subsequent firing of Comey, his attacks on the special counsel, dangling of pardons for former aides and the ouster of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.Mueller’s team already has signalled the direction of the investigation through indictments and hundreds of related court filings that have offered extensive details about Russian interference in the election.Trump fired Flynn in February 2017 after it emerged he had misled vice president Mike Pence and the FBI about his dealings with the then-Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak. In May 2017, he ousted Comey, whose agency had been leading the Russia investigation. Comey’s firing led the Justice Department to appoint Mueller to take over the probe.A small number of House Democrats have pushed for Congress to impeach Trump and remove him from office but the party’s leadership including Pelosi has urged caution. No president has every been removed from office via impeachment.Several House committees in the meantime are conducting aggressive investigations of Trump and people around him.The last president to be impeached by the House, Democrat Bill Clinton, was acquitted by the Senate in 1999 on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice, meaning he was not removed from office.In prosecuting Manafort, Mueller showed how the former campaign chairman made millions of dollars working for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine, while also exposing his ties to a consultant who the special counsel said was connected to Russian intelligence. Manafort in the two cases prosecuted by Mueller’s team was sentenced to 7-1/2 years in prison.The special counsel’s case against Cohen revealed that Trump was negotiating to build a skyscraper in Moscow late into the 2016 campaign, contradicting statements from Trump at the time that he had nothing to do with the Russians.The special counsel also indicted long time Trump adviser Roger Stone, a Republican operative and a self-proclaimed political “dirty trickster.” Stone is accused of telling members of Trump’s campaign that he knew in advance of plans by the WikiLeaks website to release emails damaging to Clinton that were stolen by Russialast_img read more
