Bill Barr says Mueller report entirely clears Trump - or ANY American - of Russian collusion and says POTUS did not obstruct justice

Bill Barr says Mueller report entirely clears Trump - or ANY American - of Russian collusion and says POTUS did not obstruct justice and was 'understandably angry' at undermining of his presidency, before exiting stage mid-way through questions --Attorney General William Barr makes public a redacted version of the 400-page Mueller report Thursday --He held a press conference from the Justice Department at 9.30am --Special Counsel Robert Mueller assembled the document over a two-year investigation --His team conducted 500 interviews, though President Trump would only submit to an interview in writing while consulting with lawyers | 18 April 2019 | Attorney General Bill Barr said Thursday that the weight of evidence in the Mueller report shows President Donald Trump did not obstruct justice -- as he explained Trump's conduct as the actions of an 'understandably frustrated' president who was acting out of a belief that the probe was undermining his tenure. 'There is substantial evidence to show that the president was frustrated and angered by his sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency, propelled by his political opponents and fueled by illegal leaks,' Barr said at a press conference which lasted just 25 minutes -- just hours before he said he would make public the redacted version of Mueller's work. He said the evidence of 'non-corrupt motives' on the part of the president 'weighs heavily' on the matter. Barr said his characterization of the president's sincerity wasn't his own determination, but was included in the report -- although the public will have to wait a few more hours to see it.

Mark Morgan, who worked in the bureau for more than 20 years including a 3-year stint as the assistant director to the FBI's training division, told "Fox & Friends" on Thursday that part of the FBI re-building its reputation after the last two years is to go back and see if past leaders had an agenda against President Donald Trump. "We need to look at how this started. We need to look at the actions of these top leaders," he said. "We need to look at the adequacy of the predication - the motives behind the actors. I mean, we are talking about high powers of position."

Iranian parliament declares US Central Command a 'terrorist organization' | 17 April 2019 | The US Central Command (CENTCOM) has been designated as a "terrorist organization" by the Iranian parliament, in a mirror response to Washington's blacklisting of Tehran's Revolutionary Guard.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran's government and Armed Forces are required to adopt preventive actions and preemptive defensive measures whenever necessary, to deter any hostile US forces' use of any possibilities against the Islamic Republic of Iran's interests," the bill states, according to Fars news. Anyone offering military, intelligence, financial, or any other support to CENTCOM and its affiliate forces will be considered supporters of terrorism.

Discriminatory censorship? GoFundMe bans anti-vaccine crowdfunding

Discriminatory censorship? GoFundMe bans anti-vaccine crowdfunding | 17 April 2019 | Crowdfunding platform GoFundMe’s decision to ban anti-vaxxers is discriminatory and hypocritical, media and legal analyst Lionel tells RT, even if the selective censorship by a non-governmental body is -- strictly speaking -- legal. "Is this an opinion, and is this a discussion point that should be protected? And if so, by whom?" Lionel asks rhetorically, explaining that, while as a private company GoFundMe has a right to kick anti-vaxxers off its platform, if a competing fundraising site tried to ban a more socially-acceptable group -- an LGBT activist organization, say, or a pro-choice campaign -- "they'd be in the streets and screaming and yelling!" [Exactly!]

The resolution, which would have required Trump to withdraw any U.S. troops in or "affecting" Yemen within 30 days unless they are fighting al Qaeda, reached the president's desk after it passed the House in a vote of 247-175 earlier this month. The Senate had passed it in a vote of 54-46 last month. Neither the House nor Senate vote was enough to override a veto.

US unseals Assange affidavit, revealing probable cause for extradition and arrest for 'conspiracy'

US unseals Assange affidavit, revealing probable cause for extradition and arrest for 'conspiracy' | 16 April 2019 | US prosecutors have unsealed an affidavit against Julian Assange that outlines their case against the WikiLeaks co-founder on a single count of "conspiracy to commit computer intrusion" that may or may not have succeeded. As FBI special agent Megan Brown admits in the affidavit, "it remains unknown whether Manning and Assange were successful in cracking the password" to the Department of Defense computer they allegedly conspired to hack, meaning the sole charge against Assange remains his alleged attempt to assist Chelsea (then Bradley) Manning in accessing the documents that were eventually leaked in 2010.

Families sue New York City over mandatory measles vaccine order: 5 mothers say the emergency order and threat of $1,000 fine is unlawful, antisemitic, and totalitarian --Vera Sharav, a child survivor of the Holocaust said in affidavit: 'Dictatorships always invoke "the greater good of society" when they trample individual human rights.' | 15 April 2019 | Five Brooklyn mothers have sued New York City for ordering mandatory measles vaccinations, accusing Mayor Bill de Blasio of unlawfully targeting Jews with an 'arbitrary' state of emergency.

Today, five mothers, with the support of five doctors and patient advocates, filed a lawsuit through anti-vaxxer attorney Robert F Kennedy, demanding that the order be suspended. They say vaccines go against their religious belief that they should not put a foreign body in their or their child's body, and they believe de Blasio's order unfairly targeted Jews.
