  • Lindsey Graham Hints There is ‘More Damning’ Information about the Russia Investigation to be Released

    Golocal247.com news

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) on Sunday said to “stay tuned” for more “damning” information after he released records showing the main source for the Steele dossier had previously been the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation for his connections with Russian intelligence."There’s a day of reckoning coming just stay tuned, and there’s more coming, there’s something else coming, more damning than this believe it or not," said the chairman of the Judiciary Committee in an appearance on Fox News.As part of the Senate panel’s probe into the Russia investigation, Graham released declassified documents that showed the FBI had investigated Igor Danchenko, British former intelligence officer Christopher Steele's main source for his dossier, as a possible “threat to national security” a decade ago as a result of his connections with Russian intelligence.The declassified information was revealed to Graham in a letter last week sent by attorney general William Barr, in which the AG referenced what Graham may be hinting at. “I have also alerted the Director of National Intelligence to certain classified information in the possession of the intelligence community, also brought to my attention by [U.S. Attorney John] Durham, which bear upon the FBI’s knowledge concerning the reliability of the dossier,” Barr said in his letter. “Mr. Durham confirms that the disclosure of that information would not interfere with his investigation, and the Department otherwise defers to the DNI concerning the handling of this information.”Durham is leading an investigation into the Russia investigation on behalf of the Justice Department.On Sunday Graham spoke about alleged wrongdoing in the Russia investigation saying there was “three buckets,” including whether there was “any legitimate reason” for special counsel Robert Mueller to be investigating Trump’s campaign for a crime involving Russia."In 2017, there was no evidence that anybody on the Trump campaign was working with the Russians," Graham said.The other two areas of concern are how the FBI may have misled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court to obtain warrants to wiretap a member of President Trump’s team and the case against Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

  • The coronavirus may have 'one big trick.' Scientists are learning how to stop it.

    Golocal247.com news

    The coronavirus appears to have "one big trick," Shane Crotty, a professor in the Center for Infectious Disease and Vaccine Research at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology, told Bloomberg.That trick — avoiding the human body's "initial innate immune response for a significant period of time," and, particularly, the response of a substance called interferon that typically helps orchestrate the defense against viral pathogens — is linked to more severe cases. Indeed, new studies published last week in Science found that an insufficient amount of interferon, the production of which may sometimes be inhibited in people with previously "silent" gene mutations, could signal a more dangerous infection because the lack of interferon can overstimulate the rest of the immune system.The good news is that, because scientists are catching on to the virus' strategy, they have a better idea of how to prevent it from causing severe infections. Writes Bloomberg, the work highlights the potential for interferon-based therapies, which are typically used in in the early stages of a viral infection when it's easier to avoid life-threatening respiratory failure. Now, dozens of studies focusing on interferon treatments are recruiting COVID-19 patients.

  • California wine country wildfire forces evacuation of hospital, hundreds of homes

    Golocal247.com news

    A wind-driven wildfire erupted on Sunday in the heart of northern California's Napa Valley wine country to spread across nearly 2,000 acres (809 hectares), forcing the evacuation of a hospital and hundreds of homes, authorities said. Fire crews were out in force, scrambling to fend off flames threatening neighborhoods and vineyards at the northern end of the famed wine-growing valley and surrounding hillsides, about 75 miles (120 km) north of San Francisco. The blaze, dubbed the Glass Fire, broke out before dawn near Calistoga and raced toward the adjacent communities of Deer Park and St. Helena, with flames reaching within a mile of the Adventist Health St. Helena hospital.

  • Donald Trump paid just $750 federal income tax in 2016, New York Times reports

    Golocal247.com news

    Donald Trump paid just $750 (£587) in federal income taxes in 2016, the year he won the US presidency, according to a bombshell investigation by The New York Times. The US president paid the same amount again in 2017, his first year in the White House, according to the paper, which obtained details of his tax return data. The paper also claimed that Mr Trump paid zero federal income taxes in 11 of the 18 years it was able to scrutinise, partly because of losses made in his businesses. The report comes after years of Mr Trump defying recent political precedent by refusing to publish his tax returns, citing an on-going audit to justify keeping them secret. It dropped less than two days before Mr Trump faces Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, at the much-anticipated first head-to-head debate of the election campaign.

    Golocal247.com news

    The remains of 117 Chinese soldiers who died in the 1950-53 Korean War were returned to China on Sunday in an annual repatriation delayed this year by the coronavirus outbreak. South Korea handed over the remains at a ceremony at Incheon airport outside Seoul, and a Chinese military transport plane flew them to Shenyang, a northeastern Chinese city near the North Korean border. Chinese soldiers fought on the North Korean side against US-led forces in the South during the war on the Korean Peninsula. Most of the 117 remains were found in the Demilitarized Zone that separates North and South Korea. It was the seventh annual repatriation, and the largest since the 437 returned in the first one in 2014. In all, the remains of 716 Chinese soldiers have been sent back. This year's return, originally planned for the spring, was postponed for several months because of the spread of Covid-19.

  • Girlfriend of Dating App Killer ‘Got Off Sexually’ on Torture: Prosecutors

    Golocal247.com news

    Bailey Boswell, the woman accused of helping her boyfriend strangle a 24-year-old wooed through Tinder, “got off sexually” from talking about killing and torture, prosecutors alleged on Friday, as the bombshell trial involving claims of a vampire sex cult began.Boswell, 26, is charged with first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and improper disposal of human remains for her role in the 2017 slaying and dismemberment of Sydney Loofe, a cashier at a Lincoln home-improvements store.Prosecutors allege Boswell conspired for weeks with her boyfriend, Aubrey Trail, 52, to lure Loofe to her death. Loofe was missing for 19 days after the Tinder date before her body was found in garbage bags scattered among ditches and farm fields in rural Nebraska.Dating App Murder Suspect Cuts Own Throat in Crazy Courtroom OutburstLast July, Trail was convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder after jurors heard from witnesses who said the 52-year-old convinced his “cult” members he was a flying, mind-reading vampire with a coven of a dozen witches—who he claimed would gain their powers by killing people.During his dramatic trial—in which he cut his own throat “several times”—he claimed Loofe was accidentally strangled during a “sex party.”“They will tell you that Bailey Boswell got off sexually talking about those kinds of things,” Assistant Attorney General Sandra Allen said Friday, describing three women who will testify against Boswell.In opening statements in Dawson County Court on Friday, prosecutors claimed the 26-year-old was a willing participant in the sinister murder plot, pointing to evidence that the couple had conspired to lure several young women into their lifestyle.The three women testifying for the prosecution are set to detail Boswell and Trail’s “rules”—including not wearing clothes in the apartment and participating in group sex—and frequent discussions about “killing and torture.”“Some of these people are just pieces of the puzzle. And they might not make sense when you hear them individually,” Allen said, according to the Omaha-World Herald, adding that in the end “it will all make sense to you.”Allen told the 15-person jury that prior to Loofe’s disappearance on Nov. 15, 2017, she had gushed to a friend about a future second date with Boswell, whom she described as her “dream girl.” But prosecutors allege Trail and Boswell messaged Loofe on Tinder under the name “Audrey” with the intent of “killing, torture, and sex.” (Tinder was formerly owned by IAC, the parent corporation of The Daily Beast.)Allen said cellphone data tracked the 26-year-old and her 52-year-old boyfriend the day of the killing, showing that they followed Loofe to work and bought a hack saw, utility knife, boxes of trash bags, four roasting pans, and duct tape.Dating App Grifters Charged in Nebraska Woman Sydney Loofe’s MurderThat night, while Loofe was on a date with Boswell, Trail strangled the 24-year-old with an extension cord and then used a “fine-toothed saw” to dismember her body, prosecutors alleged. According to court documents, Trail confessed to the murder and told authorities Boswell helped clean up the crime scene.The morning after the date, Loofe was reported missing when she didn’t show up for work at Menards. Nineteen days later, after an extensive search and a manhunt for Trail and Bowell, authorities found her body about an hour-and-a-half drive from her apartment complex outside of Lincoln.In a Facebook video after her arrest, Boswell explained she met Loofe on Tinder and they “drove around Lincoln, smoked weed [and] had a great time.” She took Loofe on another date the following evening, she said.“I gave her my number. We were planning to go to the casino that weekend,” Boswell said. “I haven’t heard from her since.” Allen said that, at the end of the video, Bowell added: “I don’t know where she’s at. I really hope you find her.”Boswell’s defense attorney, however, poked holes at the prosecution’s case and witnesses during his Friday opening statement, cautioning jurors against thinking emotionally.“Look at the state’s evidence critically,” Todd Lancaster said, according to the Lincoln Journal Star. “They want you to be emotional in this case.”Lancaster, who revealed prosecutors will be calling Loofe’s mother as their first witness on Monday, stressed jurors will be “assaulted” by photos of the deceased 24-year-old and will hear emotional testimony.“Remember when you start getting emotional, when you start getting upset about this, think about why the state's giving you that evidence,” the defense attorney said. “It's because their case is weak and they want to rile your emotions up.”Dating App Murder Suspect Aubrey Trail Convicted of Murdering Sydney LoofeDuring his trial, Trail testified that Loofe was accidentally strangled during a “sex party” that the 24-year-old had voluntarily agreed to participate in with him and Boswell. He said that Boswell helped him dispose of the body. The admission came after Trial stunned the Saline County courtroom when he cut his own throat before falling out of his wheelchair and yelling, “Bailey is innocent, and I curse you all.”“I used people for money, I used people for sex… [killing someone] was counterproductive,” Trail testified, according to the Omaha-World Herald, before adding: “I can’t bring Sydney back. I didn’t mean to, but I did.”A 22-year-old woman who claimed to be a follower of Trail’s alleged “cult” took the stand in his trial and told jurors she joined the pair’s depraved world the summer before Loofe was killed. She described how the 52-year-old convinced her she’d need to kill someone and “take their last breath” in order to obtain her magical powers, according to the Norfolk Daily News.She said that she met Trail after communicating with Boswell via Tinder, and the 52-year-old showed her photos of women he claimed had witch powers. She said Boswell was called the “Queen Witch” and Trail referred to himself as “Daddy,” NET Nebraska reported.It wasn’t clear if the 22-year-old would be one of the three women to testify against Boswell, but Lancaster urged jurors to be skeptical about these testimonies.“Do their stories match up?” Lancaster said. “You’re going to hear some crazy things from these women, things that you’ll shake your heads at. Some of what you hear is going to leave you with more questions than answers.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
