1. Müller Report
So, what now? It now seems to be the crucial question that the world has finally seen the revised version of Special Counsel Robert Müller's report. While clarifying Donald Trump and his campaign of working with the Russians in 2016, it notes how hard the Russians have worked to improve Trump's choices – and that Team Trump was perfectly fine with this support from a foreign power , Nevertheless, Müller did not feel that he had enough evidence to find a criminal.
The section of Trump's report on the possible obstruction of justice is much more disturbing. It paints the image of a president who is determined to end an investigation he considers unjust. The only thing that stopped him? His own helpers, many of whom refused to execute his orders. Basically, Müller had everything he needed to prosecute Trump if he wanted. But he did not do it. He leaves this decision on the doorstep of the congress.
So, will the Democrats of Parliament begin the road to impeachment? They seem to be split. Party leaders like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer seem to lose their appetite (because they know that the GOP-led Senate will not condemn Trump), but liberal firefighters like US MP Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are all in favor , So Dems has a big decision to make. The nation does it too. The presidential election of 2020 ̵1; now less than 19 months – may be the final verdict on Trump.
. 2 Notre Dame Fire
While they "do not rule out any hypothesis at the present time," investigators in Paris seem to be checking to see if an electrical short has caused the fire that destroyed Notre Dame Cathedral. They also interviewed employees of companies that were renovating at the time. Despite the destruction, we learn how centuries of priceless treasures were saved from the flames. Donations continue to total over $ 900 million for Notre Dame.
. 3 Russia and North Korea
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will return to the streets. He will travel to Russia later this month to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Kremlin gave no further details about the meeting. It will be interesting to see what comes out of this summit, as nuclear talks between North Korea and the US have stalled since the Trump and Kim meeting earlier this year.
. 4 South Carolina Prison
When Allen Capers died in a South Carolina prison on New Year's Eve 2017, his family claims that this happened in the most shocking circumstances. They say he was stabbed in his cell and then dragged into the prison yard by prison officials who left him there to die. The family of capers sued the US federal agency for corrections. An attorney has released surveillance material that seems to be showing casualties wounded at the prison yard, trying to get to their feet while the guards approach him. You are not in the video that medically treats him. A spokeswoman for the correction department said "more should have been done" to help capers, and the staff's actions are being reviewed.
. 5 Weather
Some violent storms will hit the south today. The storms have already killed three people in Mississippi and Alabama, and now they roll through the deep south (in Atlanta it rains sideways) and into the states of Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic. Parts of Alabama, Florida and Georgia are overseen by tornadoes. The threat of heavy thunderstorms and tornadoes is particularly high in North and South Carolina. And states like New Jersey and New York are preparing for heavy rain and floods today and tomorrow.
Game of Elmo
If the sesame star had it in his own way, he would solve all the family vendettes … respectful conversation. But that would probably not lead to a great finale.
