  • Undeterred by Mueller Report, Tlaib Calls on Dems to Investigate Trump for Impeachable Offenses

    Golocal247.com news

    Representative Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) sent a letter to fellow Democrats Monday asking them to sign a resolution calling on the House Judiciary Committee to investigate whether President Trump has committed any impeachable offenses — a possibility Tlaib believes was not adequately explored by special counsel Robert Mueller.Tlaib, who famously vowed to “impeach the mother***er” in her election night speech, broke with Democratic leadership in calling for an inquiry specifically aimed at determining whether Trump committed “high crimes and misdemeanors.”“The actions of President Trump before he was officially sworn in as President of United States is currently being investigated by the Southern District of New York and much of it is part of the completed report by independent investigator, Robert Mueller,” Tlaib wrote in a letter obtained by Business Insider. “However, the most dangerous threat to our democracy is President Trump's actions since taking the oath of office.”Tlaib went on to argue that the multiple ongoing Congressional investigations probing Trump's personal financial history, his family business operations, his administration's granting of security clearances, are insufficient, and an additional impeachment-focused probe is needed.“Much of the allegations have yet to be fully investigated by this body who also took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution,” Tlaib wrote. “It is critical that we protect the American people and our country from any conflicts of interests that directly erodes our democracy.”“I, firmly, believe that the House Committee on Judiciary should seek out whether President Trump has committed 'High crimes and Misdemeanors' as designated by the U.S. Constitution and if the facts support those findings, that Congress begin impeachment proceedings,” she added.Tlaib lays out three areas of inquiry that she would like Judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler to explore: whether Trump's ongoing ties to his family businesses, which regularly cater to foreign dignitaries, violates the foreign emoluments clause; whether Trump's hush money payment reimbursements to Michael Cohen violate federal election law; and whether Trump obstructed justice by firing former FBI director James Comey.Attorney General William Barr, in a summary of the Mueller report he delivered to Congress Sunday, wrote that Mueller did not make a determination on whether Trump obstructed justice, but Barr, and his deputy Rod Rosenstein, determined there was not sufficient evidence to bring that charge.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has dismissed the possibility of impeachment as an unnecessarily divisive move that would ultimately prove counter-productive for Democrats in 2020."Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country," she told the Washington Post Magazine in a recent interview.

    Democrats vowed to continue their efforts to get the Mueller report released after Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell blocked an attempt to pass a measure aimed at making it public. The Justice Department has not said whether it will release Robert Mueller’s full report into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and related matters. Attorney General William Barr has provided a summary of the findings and informed Congress that Mueller had concluded the Trump campaign had not colluded with Russia, but said the probe left unresolved the question of whether Donald Trump engaged in obstruction of justice.

  • Donald Trump says people who pushed 'evil' Russian collusion claims will be investigated after Mueller findings

    Golocal247.com news

    Donald Trump has vowed that people who pushed "evil" claims he colluded with Russia will be investigated after special counsel Robert Mueller found there had been no conspiracy with the Kremlin.  The US president said those making the allegations over his 2016 election conduct had been “treasonous” and done “very bad things”, adding that they "will certainly be looked at". The White House went on the attack on Monday after claiming “complete exoneration” from Mr Mueller, despite the fact the special counsel himself did not clear Mr Trump over obstruction of justice.  Sarah Sanders and Rudy Giuliani, the president’s press secretary and lawyer, demanded the Democrats and “liberal media” who talked up collusion apologise in a message echoed by high profile supporters.  Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator close to the president, held a press conference to declare he wanted a new special counsel to investigate FBI and Justice Department officials who begun the probe into Mr Trump.  Meanwhile Democrats kept a low profile on Monday, attempting to come to terms with the new political landscape that had emerged in Washington DC after Sunday’s news.  Mr Mueller’s top-line findings from a probe that had lasted 22 months came in the form of a four-page memo from William Barr, the attorney general, and amounted to a major political victory for the president.  The Democrats are demanding the full Mueller report be made public and its underlying documents be handed to Congress.  They are also vowing to continue investigations they started after taking back control of the House of Representatives in January, something will be harder to justify now.  Speaking alongside Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, Mr Trump both lashed out at those who pushed the collusion claims and expressed relief Mr Mueller’s probe was over.  Profile | Robert Mueller “I love this country as much as I can love anything – my family, my country, my god. But what they did, it was a false narrative, it was a terrible thing,” Mr Trump said.  He added: “Very few people I know could have handled it. We can never, ever let this happen to another president again.” The president also said: "There are a lot of people out there that have done some very very evil things, very bad things, I would say treasonous things against our country … [and] those people will certainly be looked at". Mr Mueller’s confidential report was in two parts – the first looked at Russian election meddling in 2016 and the second looked at claims Mr Trump obstructed justice by impeding that investigation.  Mr Mueller concluded the Kremlin did intervene to tip the election for Mr Trump, both pumping disinformation at Americans over social media and hacking Democratic Party emails and orchestrating their release.  US attorney general William Barr's letter to congressional leaders on Robert Mueller's report Credit: REUTERS/Jim Bourg But, crucially, Mr Mueller was categorical in his conclusion that neither Mr Trump nor his campaign aides conspired with the Kremlin during the campaign.  On the second issue, Mr Mueller was less definitive. He said he chosen not to make a decision on whether Mr Trump had obstructed justice, handing the decision on to the Justice Department instead. “While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him",” Mr Mueller noted, according to Mr Barr’s summary – in contrast to Mr Trump’s claim of “complete exoneration”.  It was Mr Barr and Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, who decided Mr Trump had not obstructed justice – a decision that Democrats have questioned given both were appointed by the president and reached the judgment just 48 hours after seeing Mr Mueller’s report.  Mr Barr is facing calls to appear before congressmen to explain his thinking. He has also pledged to reveal parts of Mr Mueller’s original report, which remains unpublished, though no timetable for that has been announced. Ms Sanders said :  “I think Democrats and the liberal media owe the president and they owe the American people an apology. “They wasted two years and created a massive disruption and distraction from things that impact everyone’s day to day life.”

The anti-stall system - known as MCAS, or Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System - has been pinpointed by investigators probing October's fatal Lion Air crash and faces new scrutiny in the wake of another fatal accident in Ethiopia. MCAS was designed to counter this but some experts say it overcompensated and the latest changes give some authority back to the pilot.

Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ who, according to the New Testament, died on the cross on Good Friday and came back to life three days later. His resurrection is celebrated on Easter Sunday, which also marks the end of Lent's 40-day period of fasting. From the origins of the Easter bunny to the celebrations' ever-changing dates, here is your essential guide to the holiday. Jump to it, bunny: Your complete guide to Easter decorations When is Easter 2019? This year, Good Friday falls on April 19, Easter Sunday on April 21 and Easter Monday on April 22 - three weeks later than they did last year.  While the holiday is a movable feast, it always falls somewhere between March 21 and April 25 every year. It is calculated as the first Sunday after the first full moon following the first day of spring. The full moon is known as the Paschal (Passover) Full Moon. Methods for calculating Easter are fiendishly complicated and a uniquely baffling synthesis of mathematics, astronomy and theology.  As Christians believe Jesus was crucified during the Jewish Passover festival, Easter is celebrated around the same time. Nonetheless, different Christian groups were already marking it on separate dates by the end of the 2nd Century. Q&A; | Maundy Thursday These date-led disagreements even set the course of history for the British Isles at the Synod of Whitby in 664AD when the preferred date of the Roman - rather than the Celtic - church became the standard. The decision is said to have catapulted Britain into the European sphere of influence. Though disputes over Easter's exact timing have been used as proxies for deeper power struggles for centuries, most now accept that it falls on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the spring equinox - which the Church approximated as March 21. This year, Easter Sunday falls on April 21, the longest stretch following March 21's full moon – which falls on a Sunday. In 2016, the Archbishop of Canterbury suggested Easter should fall on the same Sunday every year and the Most Rev Justin Welby said Anglican leaders would join discussions with other church leaders to fix the date for the first time, theoretically putting an end to almost 2,000 years of controversy. The 10 best destinations for Easter sun What do eggs have to do with Easter? Eggs illustrate new life, just as Jesus began his new life on Easter Sunday after the miracle of his resurrection. When eggs are cracked open they are said to symbolise an empty tomb. Originally, eating eggs was forbidden in the week leading up to Easter (known as Holy Week). They were saved and decorated in the run-up to the celebration and given to children as gifts. Sometimes they were coloured red, in recognition of the blood sacrificed by Jesus when he was crucified. Green was also used to symbolise spring re-growth after the winter. The first chocolate eggs appeared in France and Germany during the 19th century. As chocolate-making techniques improved, the Easter egg as we know it was popularised. Where does the Easter Bunny fit in to all of this? Rabbits and hares have been associated with spring for hundreds of years. It is thought that the Anglo-Saxon Goddess of Spring, Eostre – who many believe the Christian event is named after – had a hare as her companion, symbolising fertility and rebirth. It’s hardly surprising that rabbits and hares have become associated with fertility as they are both prolific breeders and regularly give birth to large litters in early spring. The legend of the Easter Bunny is thought to have originated among German Lutherans, where the ‘Easter Hare’ judged whether children had been good or bad in the run-up to Easter. Easter bunnies and eggs are symbols of spring and fertility.  Over time it has been incorporated into Christian celebrations, becoming especially popular in Britain during the 19th century. Many children believe that the Easter Bunny lays and hides baskets of coloured eggs, sweets and toys in their homes or around the garden the night before Easter Sunday – much like Father Christmas delivering gifts on Christmas Eve. This has given rise to the tradition of the Easter egg hunt which is still popular among children today. Why do we eat hot cross buns? A hot cross bun is a spiced, sweet bun marked with a cross on top. They are traditionally eaten on Good Friday as the cross represents the crucifixion of Jesus, while the spices are said to remind Christians of the spices put on his body. Hot cross buns appeared in the Oxford English Dictionary in 1733 but they are believed to have existed long before. Enriched, sweetened bread dough dates back to the Romans. Long before Christianity, loaves and buns were baked with symbols on them, one of which was a cross. Small, spiced cakes were also baked to honour the Saxon goddess Eoestre and celebrate spring, but it was the Tudors who began to link the spiced currant buns we know today with feast days, celebrations and - eventually - Lent.

In many central and eastern European countries decorating eggs with beautiful patterns is especially popular. In Switzerland, Easter eggs are delivered by a cuckoo and, in some areas of Germany, a fox. The egg-giving tradition arrived in the United States in the 18th century via protestant German immigrants in the Pennsylvania Dutch area. Traditional Easter foods from around the world On Easter Monday, the President of the United States holds an annual Easter egg roll on the lawn of the White House for young children. In the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland it is a day of remembrance for the men and women who died in the Easter Rising which began on Easter Monday 1916.
