Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page  (Associated Press)


Lisa Page testimony: Collusion still unproven by time of Mueller's special counsel appointment


More than nine months after the FBI opened its highly classified counterintelligence investigation into alleged coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, FBI lawyer Lisa Page said investigators still could not say whether there was collusion, according to a transcript of Page's recent closed-door deposition reviewed by Fox News.
"I think this represents that even as far as May 2017, we still couldn't answer the question," Page said.
Page was responding to Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe of Texas, who wanted more information about a May 2017 text where Page, and her then colleague and lover FBI agent Peter Strzok discussed the merits of joining Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team.
Page sat for the transcribed interview before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in mid-July as part of a joint congressional investigation into the Justice Department's handling of the Russia and Clinton email probes.
According to the transcript, Page stopped mid-answer."...sorry. Can I consult with counsel? I'm sorry. I need to consult with FBI counsel for a moment."

Sections of the transcript reviewed by Fox show Ratcliffe pursued the line of questioning at least three more times, and Page provided varying answers.
"I cannot provide the specifics of a confidential interview," Ratcliffe told Fox News when asked for comment. "But I can say that Lisa Page left me with the impression, based on her own words, that the lead investigator of the Russian collusion case, Peter Strzok, had found no evidence of collusion after nearly a year."
"Lisa Page left me with the impression, based on her own words, that the lead investigator of the Russian collusion case, Peter Strzok, had found no evidence of collusion after nearly a year."
- U.S. Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas
 The May 18, 2017, text was highlighted by Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz in his recent report about the handling of the Clinton email probe by the FBI and the Justice Department. The day after Special Counsel Robert Mueller's appointment to the Russia probe on May 17, Strzok and Page discussed whether Strzok should join Mueller's team.
"Who gives a f*ck, one more A(ssistant) D(irector)...(versus) (a)n investigation leading to impeachment?" Strzok texted on May 18, according to the IG report. Strzok later continues, "...you and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely I'd be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there's no big there there."
The transcript shows Ratcliffe read the text exchange nearly verbatim to Page, and asked her to explain it, specifically if the lead investigator on the Russia collusion case, agent Strzok believed "the odds were nothing and that he had a concern that there was no big there there regarding any collusion..."
Page said: "No, I don't think so. I think it's a reflection of us still not knowing...It still existed in the scope of possibility that there would be literally nothing, probably not nothing nothing, as we probably knew more than that by that point. But in the scheme of the possible outcomes, the most serious one obviously being crimes serious enough to warrant impeachment; but on the other scale that, you know, maybe an unwitting person was, in fact, involved in the release of information, but it didn't ultimately touch any senior, you know, people in the administration or on the campaign. And so the text just sort of reflects that spectrum."
During the deposition, Page said she was not trying to be "cagey," but that there were restrictions on what she could reveal. "I'm not supposed to talk about the sufficiency of evidence, so that's why I am weighing my words carefully."
George Weah played for Monaco, Paris St-Germain and AC Milan - with brief spells at Chelsea and Manchester City

George Weah: Former World Player of the Year plays for Liberia, aged 51

Weah, the first African footballer to win Fifa's World Player of the Year award, featured for 79 minutes of a 2-1 home defeat by Nigeria in Monrovia.

Liberia arranged the friendly to retire their number 14 shirt, worn by Weah at his playing peak.

The former AC Milan striker, sworn in as president in January, received a standing ovation as he was substituted.

Nigeria fielded a reasonably strong team, including Leicester's Wilfred Ndidi and fellow midfielder Peter Etebo, of Stoke City. Ndidi's club-mate Kelechi Iheanacho featured as a second-half substitute.

Etebo took the corner from which Simeon Nwankwo headed Nigeria into a 2-0 lead after Henry Onyekuru - on loan at Galatasaray from Everton - had scored the opener. The home side pulled one back with a late Kpah Sherman penalty.
George Weah is the only serving world leader to have scored in three competitive fixtures against Gillingham

Senator John McCain served in the US Congress for more than 30 years, after a military career (GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP/File / MARIO TAMA)


John McCain, a war hero and towering figure in US politics known for reaching across the aisle in an increasingly divided nation, died on Saturday following a battle with brain cancer. He was 81.

The senator's passing marked the end of a 35-year political career that brought the independent-minded Republican within reach of the White House as his party's presidential nominee.

"It's been quite a ride," McCain, who was tortured during five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, wrote in a memoir published earlier this year.

"I've known great passions, seen amazing wonders, fought in a war and helped make peace. I made a small place for myself in the story of America and the history of my times."

McCain, who was being treated at his Arizona ranch, was surrounded by his wife Cindy and his family during his final hours.

"He was a great fire who burned bright, and we lived in his light and warmth," said Meghan McCain, one of the late senator's seven children -- three of them from a previous marriage.

In Washington, flags on Capitol Hill and the White House were lowered to half mast in his honor.

Near the driveway to his ranch in Sedona, Arizona, a sign read "Sen McCain, thank you for your service."

A police escort accompanied the hearse that carried his body, as a fiery sunset cast its last light over the countryside McCain loved so dearly. Local residents brought flowers to honor the late politician.

Friends and colleagues had traveled to Arizona to bid McCain farewell in the months since his cancer diagnosis in July 2017.

- 'All in his debt' -

US President Donald Trump, who once mocked McCain's war record, said he sent his "deepest sympathies and respect."

A rare Republican critic of Trump, McCain accused the president of "naivete," "egotism" and of sympathizing with autocrats. He cast a decisive vote last year that killed Republican attempts to repeal Barack Obama's health care reforms, something Trump never forgave.

All living former US presidents lined up to praise McCain's deep integrity.

"We are all in his debt," said Obama, the Democrat to whom McCain lost the presidency in 2008.

"We shared, for all our differences, a fidelity to something higher -- the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched and sacrificed."

McCain "was a man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order," said Republican George W. Bush (2001-2009).

The late senator requested that both Obama and Bush deliver eulogies at his funeral, US media reported. He also made it known that he did not want Donald Trump to attend.

Democrat Bill Clinton (1993-2001) praised McCain, saying he "frequently put partisanship aside," while Republican George H. W. Bush (1989-1993) hailed him as "a public servant of the rarest courage."

McCain "was a man of honor, a true patriot in the best sense of the word," wrote Democrat Jimmy Carter (1977-1981). "Americans will be forever grateful for his heroic military service & his steadfast integrity."  Read More...
US National Security Advisor John Bolton speaks during a press conference in Jerusalem on August 22, 2018

US President Donald Trump's national security adviser said on Wednesday that the United States is not seeking to oust Iran's leadership but wants "massive change" in its behaviour.

Wrapping up a visit to Israel, John Bolton also warned Syria's President Bashar al-Assad that the United States would respond "very strongly" if chemical weapons are used against the country's last major rebel bastion.

The hawkish former UN ambassador who joined Trump's administration in April spoke at a press conference in Jerusalem at the end of a three-day visit that focused largely on Iran, Israel's main enemy.

US and Israeli policy toward Iran has been closely aligned under Trump.

"Regime change in Iran is not American policy, but what we want is massive change in the regime's behaviour," said Bolton, who before taking office advocated regime change in Iran.

Bolton said he believed Trump's decision in May to withdraw from the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, followed by the reimposition of sanctions, was having a stronger effect than expected on pressuring Tehran.

Echoing Israel's position, he said the nuclear deal had allowed Tehran to finance militant activity in the region due to the lifting of sanctions.

Bolton said that "by bringing the hammer down again of reimposing American sanctions, we've seen a profound negative effect on Iran -- I think actually more serious than we would have predicted."

European countries have sought to save the nuclear deal, saying it is working as intended by keeping Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons for now.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Bolton have called on European countries to do more to pressure Iran.

- 'No confusion here' -

Bolton now heads to Geneva, where he will on Thursday meet his Russian counterpart Nikolai Patrushev on Syria, including Iran's presence there.

He will also follow up on Trump's highly controversial July summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

Netanyahu points to Iran's presence in neighbouring Syria as a severe threat to his country, and he has vowed to keep it from entrenching itself militarily there.

Tehran is backing Assad's regime in Syria's civil war alongside Russia.

Israel has pushed Russia to at a minimum keep Iranian forces and their allies, such as Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah, far away from the ceasefire line in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

According to Bolton, Putin has told US officials that he also would like to see Iranian forces exit Syria since the two countries' interests there are not precisely in line, but "he said I can't do it myself."

Bolton added that "the point was that perhaps joint US-Russian efforts might be sufficient."

"Now I don't know that that's right either, but it's certainly one of the subjects that I'll be discussing with my Russian counterpart in Geneva tomorrow."

A series of recent strikes in Syria that have killed Iranians has been attributed to Israel, though Netanyahu's government rarely confirms them publicly.

Bolton referred to those strikes, saying "every time Iran has brought missiles or other threatening weapons into Syria in recent months, Israel has struck those targets."

"I think that's a legitimate act of self-defence on the part of Israel," Bolton said.

Separately related to Syria, Bolton had a warning for Assad as speculation increases over a Russian-backed government assault on northern Idlib province, home to the last major rebel stronghold in the country.

"Just so there's no confusion here, if the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons we will respond very strongly and they really ought to think about this a long time before they come to any decision," Bolton said.

His comments followed a joint statement by the United States, France and Britain on Tuesday that issued a similar warning.

In April, the United States, France and Britain launched joint missile strikes on Syrian targets in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma that left scores dead.

After seven years of war, Assad has set his sights on retaking control of Idlib, which borders Turkey.

The regime holds the southeastern tip of the province that is home to some 2.5 million people -- more than half displaced by Syria's war or bused into Idlib under surrender deals.

Bolton will visit Ukraine following his trip to Geneva.

Serena Williams earned just $62,000 (£48,050) from prize money after giving birth to her daughter Olympia

Eight of the top 10 highest earning female athletes are tennis players, with 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams topping the Forbes list.

Williams earned just $62,000 (£48,050) from prize money during the past year - owing largely to her 14-month break to have a baby - but made $18m (£13.95m) through endorsements.

Badminton's PV Sindhu and race car driver Danica Patrick are the only non-tennis players in the top 10.

In June, the Forbes rankings of the world's top 100 highest earning athletes did not feature a woman after Williams dropped out of the chart.

US boxer Floyd Mayweather topped the list followed by football's Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The top 10 highest earning female athletes earned $105m (£81.4m) in total from June 2017 to June 2018.

That figure is down 4% from last year and 28% from five years ago.

Williams' total earnings ensure she tops the list for the third successive year, making twice as much away from the tennis court as any other female athlete.

Caroline Wozniacki is second on the list having won her first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open earlier this year - a victory that secured her $3.1m (£2.4m) in prize money to push her total earnings to $13m (£10.1m).

Completing the top five are Sloane Stephens, Garbine Muguruza and Maria Sharapova.

Russian Sharapova was the top-earning female athlete for 11 consecutive years but has seen her earnings drop after her 15-month doping ban.

Indian Olympic and world silver medallist Sindhu and Patrick - the most successful female race car driver - are seventh and ninth on the list respectively.

The top 10 and their total earnings
  1. Serena Williams (tennis) - $18.1m (£14m)
  2. Caroline Wozniacki (tennis) - $13m (£10.1m)
  3. Sloane Stephens (tennis) - $11.2m (£8.7m)
  4. Garbine Muguruza (tennis) - $11m (£8.5m)
  5. Maria Sharapova (tennis) - $10.5m (£8.1m)
  6. Venus Williams (tennis) - $10.2m (£7.9m)
  7. PV Sindhu (badminton) - $8.5m (£6.6m)
  8. Simona Halep (tennis) - $7.7m (£6m)
  9. Danica Patrick (race car driving) - $7.5m (£5.8m)
  10. Angelique Kerber (tennis) - $7m (£5.4m)

Elvis Presley's 'Where No One Stands Alone' First No. 1 on Billboard Christian Album Chart



Elvis Presley has entered the Billboard Top Christian album chart at No. 1--a first for the legendary artist--with Where No One Stands Alone, a groundbreaking new album on RCA/Legacy celebrating the singer's everlasting love of gospel music.

Ten Elvis albums have hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 while seven Elvis album titles have reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country chart.

Produced by Joel Weinshanker, Lisa Marie Presley and Andy Childs, Elvis Presley -- Where No One Stands Alone introduces newly-recorded instrumentation and backing vocal contributions from music legends who'd performed on-stage and/or in-the-studio with Elvis. It also includes a reimagined duet with Elvis and his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, on the album's title track and spiritual touchstone.

Background vocalists on the album include: Darlene Love (who first sang with Elvis on his 1968 NBC television special); Dr. Cissy Houston (who, with The Sweet Inspirations, sang with Elvis on-stage beginning in 1969); Terry Blackwood, Armond Morales and Jim Murray (members of The Imperials, who sang on Elvis' How Great Thou Art -- with the title song winning the 1967 Grammy® for Best Sacred Performance); and Donnie Sumner, Bill Baize, Ed Hill and Larry Strickland (members of Presley's longtime backup group, The Stamps).

Elvis Presley -- Where No One Stands Alone provides new musical perspectives on 14 of the singer's favorite pieces of gospel music, from the reverential to the celebratory, with song selections including Presley's beloved enduring gospel classics (the 1965 Top 5 smash "Crying In The Chapel," "How Great Thou Art," "You'll Never Walk Alone"), praise-filled gospel-rockers (Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller's "Saved") and traditional hymns and spirituals ("So High," "Stand By Me," "In The Garden," "Amazing Grace").
