Good Morning. It’s Wednesday, 15 February 2017 and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
The White House scandal that erupted late Monday evening did not become any less intense on Tuesday. The drama and intrigue surrounding the sudden resignation, after only 23 days in office, of General Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor, continued, along with a string of ill-conceived press releases and statements, cross-purpose comments, “alternative facts” and denials from all involved that did nothing to calm the chaos coming out of the White House. In other words: it’s a hot mess.There’s more to come, of course, as the scope of the investigation surrounding Flynn, Russia, Russian hacking, etc. continues to widen. So much for swamp drainage.
And..the world goes on.
Catch up on what’s happening with the rest of the world by reading the front pages of the World’s Greatest newspapers.
