Trump tells FBI: ‘I have your back 100%’

Trump

US President Donald Trump supports the FBI “100%”, he told law enforcement leaders during a graduation ceremony at the agency’s Virginia headquarters. His visit comes only days after he referred to the agency as “in tatters” and “the worst in history”. During his remarks, Mr Trump heaped praise on the FBI, which critics say has grown more politicised since the 2016 election. Earlier he vowed to “rebuild the FBI… bigger and better than ever”. “The president of the United States has your back 100 percent,” he said on Friday at the FBI’s National Academy in Quantico, Virginia. “By the way,…

Nix was reported earlier this year to have been in contact with top…

GOP changes child tax credit in bid to win Rubio’s vote

Greg Nash

The final Republican tax bill will increase the amount of the refundable child tax credit to $1,400, Rep. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) told reporters Friday, as leaders seek to win the vote of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). The refundable amount was $1,100 in the Senate-passed tax bill, but Rubio on Thursday said that wasn’t good enough. He has threatened to vote against the bill unless the refundable amount of the credit is increased. It’s unclear whether the change will be enough to satisfy him. A spokeswoman for Rubio said they had not yet seen the text of the bill, but warned that unless the percentage of the refundable credit is significantly…

Walt Disney buys Murdoch’s Fox for $52.4bn

BBC

The deal includes Fox’s 39% stake in satellite broadcaster Sky, and the 20th Century Fox film studio, Disney announced. Fox’s remaining assets, including Fox News and Sports, will form a new company. The deal ends more than half a century of media expansion by Fox owner Rupert Murdoch, who is 86 years old. Simon Jack: Why is Disney buying Fox? He turned a single Australian newspaper he inherited from his father at the age of 21 into one of the world’s largest news and film empires. Mr Murdoch will still retain control of News Corp, the news publishing group that split…

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…

Russia’s Putin, on track for easy re-election, laments dearth of rivals

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday he faced no credible high-profile political opponents as he prepared to run for re-election in March, but would work to try to create a more balanced political system. Putin, whom critics have accused of using state TV, the courts and the police to demonize and marginalize the liberal opposition, said earlier this month he would run for re-election in March 2018 – a contest he seems sure to win comfortably and extend his grip on power into a third decade. But in a sign the former KGB officer is keen…

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…
