Trump calls for investigation into Clinton ties to dossier

President Trump on Sunday lashed out in a series of tweets over the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and what he termed a “lack of investigation” into Hillary Clinton.

“Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier,” Trump tweeted.

“Instead they look at phony Trump/Russia ‘collusion,’ which doesn’t exist. The Dems are using this terrible (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics, but the R’s are now fighting back like never before. There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out. DO SOMETHING!” Trump tweeted.

The president’s outrage on Sunday was apparently prompted by a Washington Post report earlier this week that a lawyer working for Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) helped fund an unverified dossier that contains allegations about Trump and his ties to Russia as well as more salacious charges.

Trump claimed the dossier cost $12 million, which is apparently a reference to the amount the law firm Perkins Coie was paid to represent the Clinton campaign and the DNC during the 2016 campaign. Perkins Coie retained the firm Fusion GPS to conduct research on Trump, but the law firm did a variety of other work for Clinton and the DNC.

Trump also cited an Obama-era Uranium One deal with Russia, the loss of some of Clinton’s emails during her tenure as secretary of State and “the Comey fix” — apparently meaning former FBI Director James Comey’s decision to clear Clinton of charges during the election — as sources of outrage.

Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier (now $12,000,000?),….

Special counsel Robert Mueller is looking into the dossier, as well as Russian interference in the 2016 election and alleged ties between the Kremlin and presidential candidates.

A federal grand jury has approved the first charges in Mueller’s investigation, CNN reported Friday. Those charged could be taken into custody as soon as Monday, though it’s unclear what the charges are because they have been sealed.

Trump earlier this week claimed on Twitter that it’s “commonly agreed” he did not collude with Russia. A member of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Sunday pushed back on that statement, saying “it’s way premature to say some kind of conclusion has been reached.”

The president has consistently denied collusion between his campaign and Moscow and has called the ongoing investigation a “witch hunt.”

Erasing History: Church Removes historical plaques

Historic Alexandria church decides to remove plaques honoring Washington, Lee

By Lori Aratani

October 28 at 6:42 PM

Leaders of a historic Episcopal church in Alexandria have decided to remove a pair of plaques from its sanctuary that memorialize two of their most prominent parishioners: George Washington and Robert E. Lee.

In a letter sent Thursday to members of the Christ Church congregation, church leaders explained that the decision came after much deliberation.

“This was not a discussion we entered into lightly, but rather a sincere attempt to have a family conversation about our worship space, our larger history and our future,” they wrote.

The fate of the two plaques, which have hung on either side of the altar at the historic church since 1870, had been talked about for years, according to the Rev. Noelle York-Simmons, the church’s rector. But the matter took on added urgency following events in Charlottesville.

One person was killed and several injured during protests Aug. 12 after a rally by white nationalists protesting the planned removal of a statue of Lee.

While recognizing the important roles both Washington and Lee played in the nation’s history, church leaders wrote that the decision was made that it would be best to remove them because they “create a distraction in our worship space and may create an obstacle to our identity as a welcoming church and an impediment to our growth and to full community with our neighbors.”

News of the church’s decision was first reported by the Republican Standard website.

York-Simmons and other church leaders spent much of September discussing the matter with members of the 1,800-person congregation.

York-Simmons characterized the meetings and listening sessions as “heartening.”

“People responded beautifully and faithfully, listening in a lot of ways that showed our church at its best,” she said.

York-Simmons would not discuss whether there were parishioners who advocated for keeping the plaques. “I’m not going to speak for my parishioners. We have been through an intense process of listening to our community’s thoughts on all sides of the complicated issue,” she said.

The nation’s first president and the commander of the Confederate army both played significant roles in the early history of Christ Church.

Washington was a regular worshiper. Lee and his family were also parishioners. Mary Custis Lee, Robert E. Lee’s wife, gifted the church $10,000 to help begin its endowment.

Even though much of the recent national debate has centered around Civil War memorials, church leaders said they thought that it was important for the plaques to be considered together. They noted that both were placed at the same time and visually balance each other in a way that “maintains the symmetry of the church’s sanctuary.”

“We understand that both Washington and Lee lived in times much different than our own, and that each man, in addition to his public persona, was a complicated human being, and like all of us, a child of God,” church leaders wrote.

Christ Church, founded in 1773, is not the only congregation to struggle with how to balance their legacy with shifting views about historical figures. After two years of tense debate, an Episcopal parish in Lexington, Va., named for Lee, who was once a prominent member, voted to change its name.

York-Simmons said the plaques will remain in place until a new location for them is identified some time next year. A committee will be formed to deliberate on a new place of “respectful prominence.”

While some may criticize the church’s decision, York-Simmons emphasized that this is not about changing the past but about finding a way to place the church’s history in the proper context.

“We are deeply committed to our history, but even more we are deeply committed to the worship of Jesus Christ,” she said. “The question is, how can we reflect both?”

Apple CEO Tim Cook Preparing his Successors

Apple CEO Tim Cook Preparing his Successors

LOS ANGELES — Apple CEO Tim Cook came to Chicago to help christen a new Apple Store, and ended up talking potential successors.

“I see my role as CEO to prepare as many people as I can to be CEO, and that’s what I’m doing. And then the board makes a decision at that point in time,” Cook said, in an interview with BuzzFeed News.

For the BuzzFeed video chat, Cook sat side by side with Angela Ahrendts, the former Burberry CEO who runs Apple’s retail division, and has been mentioned as a potential future Apple CEO.

Ahrendts called reports that she could be in the running to be the next CEO “fake news,” and “silly” to BuzzFeed.

Cook, 56, joined Apple in 1998 as senior vice-president of worldwide operations, rising to chief operating officer. He was named CEO In August, 2011, when co-founder Steve Jobs stepped down due to illness. Jobs died three months later, in October, a few days after the introduction of the iPhone 4S.

While Cook would be considered rather young to retire, some longtime Apple watchers have speculated that he could be interested in a future career in politics. He has been more outspoken politically than previous Apple CEOs. Cook has denied future political plans.

Otherwise, Cook talked about the new iPhone X, which begins pre-sales Friday at 3 a.m. ET, and addressed reports that supply will be constrained.

“We’ll see what happens,” was his response to the question, and then he added, “We’ll be working as hard as possible to make as many as possible.”
