Trump threatens to cancel briefings; Spicer back at podium

Conyers and Cummings said that Comey should be allowed to give his account in public testimony, and to receive copies of any recorded conversations between Trump and the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director if they exist. This official said sending Sanders into the briefing room was the right call. But the president's criteria for what he wants in a press secretary may be more limited - as CNN has previously reported, Trump watches the briefing nearly daily. Consulte Mais Informação

Trump says he was always going to fire Federal Bureau of Investigation director

Trump warned him not to leak and in response we have two "leaks" about what Comey is thinking. The silence from the Republican leadership in the face of Trump's appalling affront to the Constitution is rank hypocrisy compared to their high-pitched howling over former president Bill Clinton's impromptu tarmac meeting in Phoenix last June with then-attorney general Loretta Lynch when the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton's emails.

Polls closed: BC Green Party headquarters start to liven up

Clark made clear her plans to remain as premier, saying she would continue to lead government, hinting events could perhaps deliver her a majority yet. A total of 87 seats in the legislature were in play, and no party achieved the magic number of 44 to form a majority government.

Trump denies any links to Russia: 'No loans, no nothing'

Trump and his aides have been promising for several days that they would send a certified letter from Trump's attorneys to Graham showing that the president has no business ties with Russian Federation. The sale of one of his $95 million Florida mansion has also been widely covered in the press.

Nigeria, others benefit as oil prices surge 3 per cent

We also saw a big weekly jump in gasoline demand that may suggest the resistance to higher prices by consumers and may have been overstated. A cornerstone of the Saudi promise to rebalance the market would be to extend, potentially into 2018, a pledge led by the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other producers including Russian Federation to cut output by nearly 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd) during the first half of the year.
