Roy Moore says Alabama election ‘tainted’ by outside groups

BBC

Roy Moore says he will not accept defeat in Alabama’s election, arguing the vote was “tainted” by outside groups trying to stay in power. In a four-minute video on YouTube, the hardline Republican lashed out after Democrat Doug Jones claimed victory in Tuesday’s election. Mr Moore railed against gay rights, abortion, and “the right of a man to claim to be a woman and vice versa”. Democrats will hold the Alabama senate seat for the first time in 25 years. “We are indeed in a struggle to preserve our republic, our civilisation and our religion,” Mr Moore said in fire-and-brimstone…

Eric Holder warns GOP: ‘Any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated’

The guardian

Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday warned Congressional Republicans not to make any moves to remove special counsel Robert Mueller, saying such an attempt “will not be tolerated.” “Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned: any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated,” Holder wrote on Twitter. “These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party,” he said. Holder’s tweet comes as some conservatives have tried to discredit Mueller and his ability to lead the probe into Russia’s election meddling and any potential ties…

Olivia Beavers Former British Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday warned that President Trump’s frequent attacks against the press are “dangerous” for the nation’s democracy. “When Donald Trump uses the term ‘fake news’ to describe CNN and the BBC, that is not just a questionable political tactic — it’s actually dangerous,” Cameron said at the Transparency International UK’s annual lecture in London, according to a transcript of the talk. “Of course broadcasters make mistakes and it’s right they correct them. But what is being attempted here goes far beyond that: It’s an attempt to question the whole legitimacy of organizations that have an important role in our democracy,” he continued. In his talk, Cameron…

Ben Blanchard BEIJING (Reuters) – War must not be allowed to break out on the Korean peninsula and the issue must be resolved through talks, Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Thursday, while U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned of the danger of “sleepwalking” into conflict. Xi made his comments to visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in just days after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson offered to begin direct talks with North Korea without pre-conditions. But the White House said on Wednesday that no negotiations could be held until North Korea improved its behavior. The White House has declined to…

Megyn Kelly left Fox News in part due to O’Reilly: report

Examiner

Former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly’s departure from the network was partially inspired by the behavior of colleague Bill O’Reilly, according to a new report. Kelly was frustrated by O’Reilly’s criticism of her for publicly discussing sexual harassment she experienced at Fox, The New York Times reported Friday. The Times said Kelly sent an email to Fox executives complaining about O’Reilly’s behavior during his appearance on “CBS This Morning” in November. O’Reilly criticized Kelly for discussing how former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes allegedly sexually harassed her in a book she released the same day as his interview. Ailes left the…

By Sue-Lin Wong and Damir Sagolj | PYONGYANG North Korea warned the United States on Saturday to end its “military hysteria” or face retaliation as a U.S. aircraft carrier group steamed toward the region and the reclusive state marked the “Day of the Sun”, the 105th birth anniversary of its founding father. Concern has grown since the U.S. Navy fired Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airfield last week in response to a deadly gas attack. That raised questions about U.S. President Donald Trump’s plans for North Korea, which has conducted several missile and nuclear tests in defiance of U.N. and…

British spies were first to spot Trump team’s links with Russia

The guardian

Britain’s spy agencies played a crucial role in alerting their counterparts in Washington to contacts between members of Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives, the Guardian has been told. GCHQ first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious “interactions” between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the US as part of a routine exchange of information, they added. The European countries that passed on electronic intelligence – known as sigint – included Germany, Estonia and Poland. Australia, a member of the “Five…

By Michael Martina and Sue-Lin Wong | BEIJING/PYONGYANG Military force cannot resolve tension over North Korea, China said on Thursday, while an influential Chinese newspaper urged the North to halt its nuclear programme in exchange for Chinese protection. With a U.S. aircraft carrier group steaming to the area and tension rising, South Korea said it believed the United States would consult it before any pre-emptive strike against the North. Fears have been growing that the reclusive North could soon conduct its sixth nuclear test or more missile launches in defiance of U.N. sanctions and stark warnings from the United States…
