The federal judge sitting for Special Counsel John Durham’s case against former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann denied the defense’s motion for a mistrial Thursday. Sussmann, a Democratic lawyer with ties to Clinton’s 2016 campaign, was charged by Durham last year with lying to the FBI during a 2016 meeting. The trial officially began in court this week, and Sussmann’s attorney Sean Berkowitz quickly pushed for a mistrial after former Clinton campaign general counsel Marc Elias’s testimony Wednesday. The push for a mistrial surrounded a comment Elias made during cross-examination, according to Fox News. Elias at one point suggested they “ask Mr. Sussmann” when pressed on whether Sussmann went to the FBI with his claims at the behest of the Clinton campaign. The prosecution subsequently mentioned this answer, prompting the defense to issue the motion for a mistrial, according to Fox News. (RELATED: ‘As Wrong As It Gets’: Rep.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin With Ukrainian forces now on the Russian border, a momentous question has arisen. Will Ukrainian troops now invade Russia? Ukrainian boots on Russian ground might divert forces from the main Russian offensive to the south, embarrass the Russian government. and boost Ukrainian morale. It would also be sweet revenge in a conflict that has almost totally been waged on Ukrainian territory. However, advancing into Russia would more likely be an enormous blunder. It would dissipate Ukrainian military power, possibly provoke Moscow into using chemical or nuclear weapons, and support Russia’s claim that invading Ukraine was a “defensive” war. Perhaps most important, it would risk depriving Ukraine of support from Western nations reluctant to risk escalating the conflict into World War III. So far, there are no public indications that Ukraine is contemplating sending ground troops into Russia. Nonetheless, in a war where … [Read more...] about Will Ukraine’s Army Invade Russia?
New York (CNN Business) In August of 2001, more than 100 people gathered on the East Side of Buffalo, New York. The setting, an empty lot in a nearly all-Black neighborhood of this upstate New York city, drew prominent visitors. They included Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer, the two US senators from the state at the time; Anthony Masiello, then the mayor of Buffalo; Byron Brown, the current mayor of the city; and other officials. The 90-minute event featured 18 speakers and was described as "Buffalo's longest-ever news conference." The group was there to announce that Tops Friendly Markets, a leading Northeast grocery chain, would be built on the site — located where an A&P supermarket stood in the 1960s when the neighborhood was a hub of economic activity for Buffalo's Black community. The announcement marked the culmination of more than a decade of activism by community advocates and others to address food inequities on Buffalo's East … [Read more...] about The long struggle to bring a supermarket to a nearly all-Black Buffalo neighborhood

However, managing director Datuk Ng Yih Pyng said the group hopes to improve its performance to lift the company’s profitability.
