Good Morning, it’s Tuesday, 6 March 2018, and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.
North Korea said that it would suspend nuclear testing and hold talks with South Korea (and the U.S.) in April. This is a massive breakthrough for the Korean peninsula.
Sam Nunberg, a former Trump campaign aide, went “rogue” last night on MSNBC and said that 1) he would not cooperate with the Special Counsel’s subpoena for documents and emails; 2) would not show up for a grand jury hearing on Friday; and 3) said that “perhaps President Trump did something wrong” during the campaign”. Nunberg’s wild multiple interviews overwhelmed television and social media last night. Hmmm.
And more hmmmmm. Michael Cohen, President Trump’s attorney, has been reported as saying that the President did not reimburse him for the $130,000 that he reportedly paid to porn star Stormy Daniels to encourage her to sign a non-disclosure agreement about the alleged affair between Daniels and Trump. Hmm. Why should he care? He initially said he did it for his friend. Hmmm.
And, finally, someone stole Francis McDormand’s Oscar after Sunday’s Academy Awards. The suspect was captured and the award is now in safe hands.
Today is National Oreo Cookie Day. That’s a good and easy one to celebrate: get some milk, get some Oreo cookies, start celebrating.
