‘Maybe it was the Belgian Air Force’: Netanyahu on last night’s airstrikes in Syria

Trump's latest possible quid pro quo involves New York, airport travel, and his tax returns

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) visited President Trump on Thursday afternoon to try and negotiate the reversal of his administration's new ban on New Yorkers participating in the Global Entry and "trusted traveler" programs, which ease border crossings and airport security lines for enrolled travelers. Cuomo had low hopes, and they were met. The governor's office and acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said talks will continue. Before the meeting, Trump floated what appeared to be an offer he hoped New York couldn't refuse. Cuomo "must understand that National Security far exceeds politics," he tweeted, an apparent reference to the administration's purported rationale for blocking New Yorkers from the programs. "New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harrassment [sic]." New York Attorney General Letitia James — who won a $2 million settlement from Trump over his canceled family charity and is suing him and his business on multiple fronts, including for his financial records — clapped back.…

Giuliani claims he can 'prove' a 'Democratic scam' in Ukraine with iPad full of 'reports' he never actually shares

Rudy Giuliani has a fresh crop of claims about Democrats' dealings in Ukraine — an iPad full of "proof" he won't let anyone else see. The former New York City mayor made a Fox Business appearance on Thursday night to push any corruption in Ukraine on Democrats' shoulders. "They're going to be very surprised when they see the report that I have" apparently revealing an "unaccounted for" $5.3 billion in Ukraine aid during the Obama administration, Giuliani said, not exactly specifying who "they" are. That aid gap apparently explains "how all those oligarchs become oligarchs," Giuliani said, making some chomping noises and motions to imitate his interpretation of how money is laundered. Giuliani goes on to mention this mysterious report over and over, which apparently shows how "not just" the Bidens engaged in a "huge Democratic scam" in Ukraine. "That's why they're so crazy on the subject of Ukraine, and why they want to literally kill me," Giuliani said of Democrats, without any proof of this murderous plot. "I…

Trump has already tweeted about Barr's interview complaining about his tweets

President Trump has a message for Attorney General William Barr: I will never log off. Barr in a rare rebuke of Trump on Thursday criticized the president's tweets about Department of Justice cases in an interview with ABC News, begging him to knock them off because they're making his job difficult. "I think it's time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases," Barr said in the interview, saying tweets like these from the president "make it impossible for me to do my job." This came amid an ongoing controversy over the Department of Justice reversing its sentencing recommendation for longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone after Trump angrily tweeted about it. So what was Trump's response to Barr begging him to stop it with the DOJ-related tweets? Another DOJ-related tweet, of course. Trump on Friday quoted a different part of the interview in which Barr said Trump has "never asked me to do anything in a criminal case," with Trump claiming this is true but only because he has "chosen not to"…

Five months out, Japan's Olympics organisers say 'no plan B' amid coronavirus fears

Organisers for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics say they have no contingency plans for cancelling the event, despite rising fears of a coronavirus outbeak in neighbouring China. Officials said plans for the Summer Olympics to open on July 24 remained "on track", despite jolts from the virus which has infected almost 64,000 globally and killed more than 1,400, mostly in China. “The advice we’re received externally from the WHO (World Health Organisation) is that there’s no case for any contingency plans or cancelling the Games or moving the Games,” said John Coates, the head of an International Olympic Committee inspection team. Japan reported its first coronavirus death on Thursday, and is carrying out checks on passengers of a quarantined cruise ship, Diamond Princess, after the virus was found onboard earlier in February.
