British Spy Agency GCHQ Denies ‘Ridiculous’ Trump Wiretap Claims:

The United Kingdom’s intelligence agency has strongly denied White House allegations it spied on US President Donald Trump on behalf of former President Barack Obama during the 2016 election.

GCHQ, in a highly unusual public statement, said the claims repeated by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, were “utterly ridiculous” and ought to be ignored.

At a Thursday press briefing, Spicer read out allegations originally made on Tuesday on Fox News by legal analyst Andrew Napolitano, that the UK intelligence agency had spied on Trump.

Andrew Leander Wilson missed 32 years of Christmas dinners, graduations and even the birth of his granddaughter.

Wrongfully Convicted Man Free After 32 Years:

On a sunny Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles Andrew Leander Wilson did something that seemed unbelievable to him; he walked outside on the sidewalk with only his family guarding him.

“I’ve been inside for 32 years, three months and 14 days. It’s been that long,” Wilson told CNN.
Wilson has been in prison all those years. He went in at age 30 convicted of murder and now at 62 he is a free man because evidence had come to light that the prosecution withheld in the case all those years ago. Superior Court Judge Laura Priver ruled Wilson had been deprived of his constitutional rights to a fair trial, vacating his conviction and ordering his immediate release. One day later Wilson was free.

Ten Of Trump’s Budget’s Cruelest Cuts:

The budget released today by President Donald Trump’s administration makes clear that he assigns no value to the human cost of his policy choices.

As his framing message suggests, “To keep Americans safe, we have made tough choices that have been put off for too long. ” Choices, he says, made in the interest of fiscal responsibility. Fiscal responsibility is a good idea but not when the result is morally bankrupt.
The egregiousness of the cuts he proposes can best be understood through the impact they would have on the access that millions of people would have to such a basic need: food.

Steve Penny resigned Thursday as president and CEO of USA Gymnastics amid criticism for his handling of a wide-ranging sexual abuse scandal.

According to Nancy Armour and Rachel Axon of USA Today, Penny’s resignation came after the Indianapolis Star reported more than 360 cases of sexual abuse allegations by gymnasts against coaches over the past two decades.

Penny and USA Gymnastics released the following statement upon resigning, according to Armour and Axon: “It has been heartbreaking to learn of instances of abuse and it sickens me that young athletes would be exploited in such a manner. My decision to step aside as CEO is solely to support the best interests of USA Gymnastics at this time”

Burger Sells For $10,000 In Dubai:

A juicy burger has sold at a charity auction in Dubai… for $10,000.

Asma Al Fahim, founder of Dubai lifestyle magazine Villa 88, phoned in the winning bid.

The giant burger contained seven beef patties — one for each of the emirates in the United Arab Emirates — aged cheddar cheese and veal bacon strips in a saffron brioche bun.

It was prepared by Russell Impiazzi, culinary director at Le Gourmet in Dubai’s Galeries Lafayette, and a member of Qatar’s royal family, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Thani.

“Two years ago we broke the world record by selling one burger for $7,000, and this year we wanted to top that,” Al Thani said in a statement. “All proceeds will go to breast cancer awareness and free detection at an earlier stage.”
