'No evidence of collusion' between Trump campaign, Russia: US lawmaker

AFP

A congressional panel so far has found "no evidence" that Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election, its chairman said Sunday, ahead of testimony by the head of the FBI on the US president's potential Russia ties.

Based on "everything I have up to this morning -- no evidence of collusion," by Trump's team and Moscow, Representative Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News.

Nunes made his remarks one day before Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey is to face lawmakers on the panel, amid speculation that Trump aides and associates -- and perhaps even the businessman-turned-politician himself -- may have maintained uncomfortably close ties with Moscow.

New IRS Filing Tries to Force Coinbase Into Handing Over its Data

The US Internal Revenue Service has asked a federal court to compel digital currency exchange Coinbase to provide it with user records in response to a subpoena.

The tax agency’s fight to obtain records on users between the years 2013 and 2015 has entered a new chapter, coming months after the IRS first sought court approval for its "John Doe" subpoena in November. Since then, both Coinbase and one of its customers, Jeffrey Berns, have filed to intervene in the case in a bid to stop what both parties have blasted as a regulatory overreach.

To date, Coinbase has not provided that data to the government, sparking today's petition to "enforce the summons", according to public records.

Coinbase said that it was reviewing the new filing and indicated that it could move to launch further court challenges in light of the subpoena.

China to US: Be 'cool-headed' on North Korea

China urged the United States to take a "cool-headed" approach to escalating tensions with North Korea, calling for a diplomatic solution to North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrived in the Chinese capital Saturday after issuing the administration's bluntest warning yet to North Korea, saying that no option was off the table -- including military action.

For two hours, Tillerson met with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi, who said the US should "come back to the right track of a negotiated settlement."

Tillerson said that North Korean tensions had reached a "dangerous level" and said China had agreed to work together to make Pyongyang "change course," -- though he didn't give further details.

Beijing was Tillerson's final stop on his first official trip to Asia after visiting Japan and South Korea.

Top economies yield to US, drop no-protectionism pledge: Trump Win on Trade

BADEN-BADEN, Germany (AP) -- The world's top economic powers dropped a pledge to oppose trade protectionism amid pushback from the Trump administration, which wants trade to more clearly benefit American companies and workers.

Finance ministers from the Group of 20 countries meeting in the southern German town of Baden-Baden issued a statement Saturday that said only that countries "are working to strengthen the contribution of trade" to their economies.

By comparison, last year's meeting called on them to resist "all forms" of protectionism, which can include border tariffs and rules that keep out imports to shield domestic companies from competition.

The statement from the G20 finance ministers and central bankers helps set the tone for further global economic cooperation.

White House claims Obama monitored Trump Using GCHQ

White House spokesman Sean Spicer on Thursday cited unsubstantiated claims made by "Fox News" analyst Andrew Napolitano that former US President Barack Obama asked British intelligence agency GCHQ to monitor President Donald Trump.

Andrew Napolitano, a political commentator and former New Jersey judge, said on Tuesday Obama used GCHQ in order to "make sure there were no American fingerprints."

"Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command - he didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI and he didn't use the Department of Justice," said Napolitano. "He used GCHQ."

Earlier this month, President Donald Trump alleged in a series of tweets that Obama had the real estate mogul's Manhattan home under surveillance.

Yemen at 'point of no return' as conflict leaves almost 7 million close to famine 

Aid agencies have warned that Yemen is “at the point of no return” after new figures released by the UN indicated 17 million people are facing severe food insecurity and will fall prey to famine without urgent humanitarian assistance.

A total of 6.8 million people are deemed to be in a state of emergency – one step from famine on the five-point integrated food security phase classification (IPC), the standard international measure – with a further 10.2 million in crisis. The numbers reflect a 21% increase in hunger levels in the Arab world’s poorest state since June 2016.

Taiz and Hodeidah governorates, home to almost 25% of Yemen’s 28 million-strong population and the scene of intense conflict since the outbreak of civil war in 2015, are at particularly heightened risk of famine.

Key Democratic Officials Now Warning Base Not to Expect Evidence of Trump/Russia Collusion

The Intercept

From MSNBC politics shows to town hall meetings across the country, the overarching issue for the Democratic Party’s base since Trump’s victory has been Russia, often suffocating attention for other issues. This fixation has persisted even though it has no chance to sink the Trump presidency unless it is proven that high levels of the Trump campaign actively colluded with the Kremlin to manipulate the outcome of the U.S. election — a claim for which absolutely no evidence has thus far been presented.
