Good Morning. It’s Thursday, 25 May 2017 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
President Trump remains on the road in Europe. The investigational fires continue to burn in the U.S.
An investigative committee has asked Deutsche Bank for all papers relating to loans and banking operations with the Trump family and Trump owned/controlled entities. Deutsche Bank is already on the hot seat for allegedly laundering money for Russian investors/interests.
Lt. General Michael Flynn has let be known he will personally plead the 5th in any investigation and will not turn over any papers relating to his outside Russian, Turkey, and other consulting interests. The Congressional committee investigating him has, alternatively, issued subpoenas to two of his companies for documents (a corporation cannot plead the 5th).
New reporting says that the Russians discussed how to influence top Trump aides as early as last summer. Looks like it worked…..
And, in Montana, a so-called GOP candidate for Congress lost it after a journalist from The Guardian asked him a pretty straightforward question. The candidate tossed the journalist down, and started punching him. The s0-called candidate, Greg Gianforte, has been charged with assault and his endorsement retracted by three Montana newspapers. Expect also a civil lawsuit.
Now more than ever, catch up on the news in the rest of the world by reading the front pages of the World’s Greatest newspapers.
