Obstruction Inquiry Shows Trump’s Struggle to Keep Grip on Russia Investigation

Trump tried to get Sessions not to recuse himselfPresident Trump gave firm instructions in March to the White House’s top lawyer: stop the attorney general, Jeff Sessions, from recusing himself in the Justice Department’s investigation into whether Mr. Trump’s associates had helped a Russian campaign to disrupt the 2016 election.

Public pressure was building for Mr. Sessions, who had been a senior member of the Trump campaign, to step aside. But the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II, carried out the president’s orders and lobbied Mr. Sessions to remain in charge of the inquiry, according to two people with knowledge of the episode.


After questioning Spicer, Democrats want to depose Priebus about election night activities

Dems want to depose Priebus

Fresh from interviewing former White House press secretary Sean Spicer over what he was doing on the fifth floor of Trump Tower on election night, Democrats now want to interview former Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.

Spicer’s presence that night has caused some unease among Republicans because the expiration of a 35-year-old settlement, or consent decree, barring the RNC from engaging in ballot security operations may depend on it. The fifth floor, POLITICO has reported, was the nerve center of then-candidate Donald Trump’s poll-watching operations.

Half-a-dozen 2017 releases of long-secret documents about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy have given plenty of new leads to those who don’t believe alleged gunman Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.

Fracking to begin in earnest in 2018 after tough year for industry

Fracking to begin in earnest in 2018

British shale gas companies have said domestic fracking will finally begin in earnest in 2018, after another year passed without serious progress amid strong opposition.

Industry figures said next year would be crucial for the sector, as companies start the process of hydraulic fracturing to extract gas trapped underground in shale rock.

The past 12 months have not been kind to the embryonic industry. Scotland has banned fracking, while public opposition in the UK hit record highs and protests made headlines.

The companies at the vanguard of Britain’s fracking push said this will change in 2018. “We will see results next year. None of us can say with certainty what the results will be, of course,” said Francis Egan, the chief executive of Cuadrilla.


LeBron James Thinks Colin Kaepernick Is Being Blackballed by the NFL

LeBron James : Kaepernick blackballed by NFL
LeBron James knows a thing or two about athletes, and as a former All-State wide receiver, he knows a thing or two about quarterbacks. The King talked to ESPN's Dave McMenamin and let it be known that he thinks the NFL is screwing over the former Pro-Bowler.

"I love football, but I'm not part of the NFL," James told ESPN following the Cleveland Cavaliers' practice Sunday. "I don't represent the NFL. I don't know their rules and regulations. But I do know Kap is getting a wrong doing. I do know that. Just watching, he's an NFL player. He's an NFL player and you see all these other quarterbacks out there and players out there that get all these second and third chances that are nowhere near as talented as him. It just feels like he's been blackballed out of the NFL. So, I definitely do not respect that."
