Fired FBI Official McCabe Kept Memos Documenting Interactions With Trump, Now in Hands of Special Counsel Mueller

It is unclear exactly what is in McCabe’s memos and if he memorialized every interaction he had with the President. The memos also detail what former FBI Director James Comey told McCabe about his own interactions with Trump while he was FBI director and are seen as a way to corroborate Comey’s account in Mueller’s probe on Russian interference in the 2016 election. The former FBI director’s memos have also been handed over to the special counsel. Capitol Police before a meeting with members of the Oversight and Government Reform and Judiciary committees on Dec. 21, 2017. McCabe revealed that he had three in-person interactions and one phone call with Trump, in which the President berated him each time about his wife’s failed Virginia Senate campaign. “Of course, I disagreed with him.”
McCabe also confirmed that the President asked him who he voted for in the 2016 election, which was reported back in January and which Trump denied. 2 official at the FBI told CNN that Trump did not bring up the agency’s investigation into Russia meddling in the 2016 election. Comey’s memos

Special counsel Robert Mueller has memos written by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe documenting his conversations with President Donald Trump, a source with knowledge of the matter told CNN. Federal Bureau of Investigation Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is escorted by U.S. Comey said his memos detailed conversations in which Trump asked Comey to pledge loyalty to him, state publicly that the FBI was not investigating Trump himself, and urged Comey to “let this go,” referring to the then-investigation involving Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe on Friday, about a day before his 50th birthday and the date he was set to retire and begin receiving his anticipated pension, over accusations that McCabe directed FBI officials to speak to the media about an investigation tied to the Clinton Foundation and misled investigators about his actions. “In May, when Director Comey was fired and I had my own interactions with the President, he brought up my wife every time I ever spoke to him,” McCabe told CNN. Following his firing Friday, McCabe told CNN in an interview that he had four interactions with the President last May, while he was acting FBI director. During his testimony on Capitol Hill last June, Comey acknowledged orchestrating the leak of his memos to the media a few days after he was fired in hopes that the Justice Department would appoint a special counsel. Trump has denied several of Comey’s claims.

Moreno Valley 17-Year-Old Allegedly Stole Van From Hotel, Crashed It During High-Speed Pursuit: Sheriff’s Officials

His name is not being released due to his age. The employee had only gone inside to grab a guest’s luggage, but by the time he returned he saw someone get in the van and speed away, investigators said. The 1100 block of Third Street in Needles, where a van was stolen from a Rodeway Inn, is seen in a Google Maps Street View image from June 2016. The vehicle led deputies on a chase throughout Needles before getting onto the eastbound 40 Freeway and driving at speeds exceeding 100 mph, officials said. He was released to his parents at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas, but sheriff’s officials said he will appear in juvenile court to face charges of vehicle theft and evading a police officer.

Idaho Teacher Accused of Feeding Dying Puppy to Reptile in Front of Students Please enable Javascript to watch this video
Preston Authorities have seized a snapping turtle from an Idaho junior high school science teacher who is currently under investigation for feeding a small puppy to the reptile. “I am not upset. Jackson did not elaborate on why Fish and Game seized the turtle. Crosland is a beloved teacher who brought science to life, according to a 2000 story published in The Herald Journal. The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office conducted an investigation that was turned over to Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney Vic Pearson. “Officials from the southeast region of the Department of Fish and Game took the turtle and gave it to the Department of Agriculture.”
The Department of Agriculture will determine what will happen to the turtle. The Franklin County Sheriff determined the post did not pose a credible threat, according to a letter from Superintendent Marc Gee, but officers and deputies were stationed at schools as a precaution. There has been backlash against Crosland in Idaho and across the country. “Any youngster who witnessed cruelty in the classroom is now in desperate need of lessons about having empathy for other living beings.”
The incident has resulted in threats targeting Crosland and Preston schools. The Idaho Humane Society has asked for a thorough investigation into the alleged mistreatment of the puppy and PETA issued a statement calling on the school district to take the incident “seriously.”
“This teacher — who is allegedly known for feeding guinea pigs to reptiles during lessons — is a bully who should not be allowed near impressionable young people,” PETA Senior Director of Cruelty Casework Stephanie Bell said in the statement. Crosland, a teacher at Preston Junior High, has not been cited or charged with any crime. Many students, former students, parents and community members have contacted saying they support Crosland and are disappointed, even angry, that the story has been in the news. “Cages and aquariums line the walls, and they’re not just local snakes and frogs,” the article states. A petition titled “We Support Crosland” had over 3,000 signatures as of 9:15 p.m. I felt like it was the more humane thing for Robert to do than to just leave it (the puppy) to die…The puppy was dying.”
She also told the newspaper that the puppy had been rejected by its mother. Crosland has taught science at Preston Junior High School for years.

New York Democratic Rep. Louise Slaughter Dies After Fall

Rep. According to her office, “in 2009, she secured the recall and replacement of 16,000 pieces of unsafe body armor from the front lines. Louise Slaughter, D-New York, talks to reporters with members of the House Democratic leadership at the U.S. I will always cherish our friendship, comradery, and of course, her rhubarb pie. It is difficult to find a segment of society that Louise didn’t help shape over the course of more than 30 years in Congress, from health care to genetic nondiscrimination to historic ethics reforms.”
In recent years, Slaughter had some health issues, and missed some votes and meetings, but after one absence around the efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act last year, the senior Democrat returned for the vote, which was expected to be very close, telling CNN, “I wasn’t going to miss this one.” She noted she was proud to be a part of passing the Democrats’ signature health care law in 2009. Her effort led to improved armor testing protocols and ended the practice of outsourcing testing to private companies.”
She also was the author of other pieces of landmark pieces of legislation in Congress, including one that barred members of Congress from insider trading, and was the co-author of the Violence Against Women Act.   “That said, Louise did not need a gavel to make a dent in history. “Louise was a fearless leader, deeply committed to her constituents, and a dear friend,” Republican Pete Sessions, the Rules Committee chairman, said in a statement “I have had the immense privilege of working side by side with her for the past 20 years. Louise M. She was unrelenting in fighting for her ideas and the people back home in Western New York.”
Slaughter’s chief of staff Liam Fitzsimmons released a statement Friday morning on his boss’s death. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said Friday in a statement that she was “heartbroken by the passing of the congresswoman,” just one of several top Democrats who used the term “heartbroken” to describe their feelings about Slaughter’s death. A major fixture in Democratic politics, she was serving her 16th term in Congress. “Louise was a trailblazer. home last week, suffered an injury, and had been hospitalized at George Washington University Hospital. “She was a relentless advocate for Western New York whose visionary leadership brought infrastructure upgrades, technology and research investments, and two federal manufacturing institutes to Rochester that will transform the local economy for generations to come.”
He added, “As the first chairwoman of the House Rules Committee, Louise blazed a path that many women continue to follow. Capitol July 30, 2014. … Her strong example inspired countless young women to know their power, and seek their rightful place at the head of the decision-making table.”
Slaughter, a microbiologist, won a seat in Congress in 1986 and was known for securing infrastructure money for her district as well as fighting for the troops. “In her lifetime of public service and unwavering commitment to working families, Congresswoman Slaughter embodied the very best of the American spirit and ideals. As the top Democrat on the committee that set terms of House floor debate, she often sparred with her GOP colleagues about policy, often late into the night. But Republicans on the panel respected her and regarded her as a fierce protector of her party’s agenda. “Louise was a giant in the people’s House, the first woman ever to chair the Rules Committee,” the Wisconsin Republican said in his statement. Slaughter was born in Kentucky, and although she relocated with her family to upstate New York, she never lost her trademark southern twang. Although we sat on different sides of the aisle, I have always considered her a partner and have the utmost respect for her.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan issued a statement Friday ordering Capitol flag lowered to half-staff. With her passing, the Congressional community has lost a beloved leader and a cherished friend,” Pelosi said. Slaughter, the first female chair of the House Rules Committee and one of the longest-serving Democrats in Congress, died Friday at age 88, her office announced. (Credit: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
The dean of the New York congressional delegation had fallen near her D.C. Slaughter spent years trying to set safety standards for military body armor after a report revealed that many casualties in the Iraq War had been born of the fact that the protective armor troops were wearing was inadequate. Rep. She was genuinely curious and often stopped Capitol Hill reporters in the hallway to check on what stories they were working on, and offer her own two cents. “To have met Louise Slaughter is to have known a force of nature,” he said.

Good Samaritans Help Thwart Suspect Who Tried to Carjack ‘Elderly’ Woman in Michigan: Witness

“I’m just extremely grateful all the citizens of Milford came together to protect one another,” Capriotti said. A man with a dog chased the suspect while another man on crutches joined in. Gillette has an alleged history of attempting to get officers to shoot him. Police arrived to find Gillette holding scissors, making an alleged attempt of suicide by police. “The guy with the crutch cracked him over the head to fight him off,” Capriotti told the station. When the stolen car wouldn’t start, police told WXYZ he tried to steal the “elderly” woman’s vehicle.

Resolution Denouncing White Nationalists, Neo-Nazis Fails to Make It Out of Tennessee House Committee

— TN Democratic Party (@tndp) March 14, 2018

‘Why, I can’t begin to imagine’
Clemmons can’t understand how something so non-controversial couldn’t even get out of committee. It couldn't get a second, so it failed without even being heard. (Credit: Joe Buglewicz/Getty Images)
It didn’t even make it out of committee in the Tennessee legislature. As Clemmons started to talk about the bill, the sole Democrat on the five-member committee motioned to have it discussed. The resolution was written by Tennessee Democratic state Rep. These subjects seem simple but have initiated some of the most bitter decisiveness and debates I have ever witnessed. “[W]e urge law enforcement to recognize these white nationalist and neo-Nazi groups as terrorist organizations and to pursue the criminal elements of these domestic terrorist organizations in the same manner and with the same fervor used to protect the United States from other manifestations of terrorism.”
But when it came up Wednesday before the House State Government Subcommittee, it died a quick death. It sounds like the kind of legislation that should easily breeze through a statehouse, even in these politically divided times: a resolution denouncing white nationalists and neo-Nazis. It calls on law enforcement to go after white nationalists and Neo-Nazi groups with the same “fervor” as other forms of terrorism. No one on the committee spoke up. We have blown a tremendous opportunity.”
Sanderson hadn’t responded to CNN requests for comment, but another Republican member of the committee, state Rep. They usually result in a retaliatory resolution from the other side.”
The committee could bring the resolution back up if it’s reworded, Ramsey said. Police stand between protestors during an event billed as a “White Lives Matter” rally on October 28, 2017 in Shelbyville, Tennessee. A resolution filed by @JRClemmons after #Charlottesville to denounce white nationalists and neo-Nazi groups was on the State Government Subcommittee's agenda today. Bob Ramsey, told WZTV that they didn’t have enough information on neo-Nazis or white supremacy to be able to talk about it. “How could we determine these groups are terrorists? The committee chair, Republican state Rep. CNN has reached out to Clemmons to see if he’ll do this but has not heard back. “We have no expertise on it,” he said. About 36 seconds. How quick? “What example does this set for children when their own state won’t denounce acts of violence by hate groups? Bill Sanderson, then gaveled the resolution dead
And with that the committee moved on to the next item on its agenda. John Ray Clemmons. “Why, I can’t begin to imagine,” he told CNN affiliate WZTV. Because the resolution didn’t get a second motion to proceed, it means it won’t make it to a vote by the full legislature. We don’t know the federal guidelines on terrorism.”
Later, in a statement to CNN, Ramsey said the committee agreed with Clemmons “on the intent and philosophy of the resolution.” The objection was to “the designation of ‘terrorist organization.’”
“In the past two sessions, our Committee has had several resolutions from various political parties, aimed at special prosecutors, designations of terrorist organizations, condemnation of religious sites and practices, and celebration of controversial historical sites, figures, or organizations. 35.517491

Armstrong said Southwest staff removed the man and the child, believed to be his daughter, from Flight 1683 to Atlanta shortly before takeoff Wednesday, according to KTLA sister station WGN in Chicago. It appeared to be the child’s first time flying, she said in an interview with WGN. Do you want to go to Atlanta? Armstrong said the girl, who she thought was about 2 years old, appeared scared to fly and wanted to sit in her father’s lap — not her own seat — before takeoff. The man calms the child, gets her popcorn, sets her up,” Armstrong told Inc. “I did NOT think this would blow up, I am not sure why I even began to film, I just knew from the woman’s attitude and security approaching it wasn’t going to end well.”
