Mattis warns North Korea of ‘destruction of its people’

 

TheHill.com

BY ELLEN MITCHELL –
Defense Secretary James Mattis warned North Korea in stark terms on Wednesday that it faces devastation if it does not end its pursuit of nuclear weapons
“The DPRK must choose to stop isolating itself and stand down its pursuit of nuclear weapons,” Mattis said in the statement, referring to North Korea.  “The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.”
Trump on Tuesday warned North Korea of “fire and fury” if it takes aggressive steps toward the United States, words that caught much of the word off guard and raised concerns about escalating tensions between the two countries.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders later said that Trump discussed the “tone and strength” of his message with senior national security advisors before his remarks, but “the words were his own.”

The FBI on July 26 raided the home of Paul Manafort in connection with the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the election, The Washington Post reported.

With search warrant in hand, the FBI showed up before dawn at the Virginia home of President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman and seized documents and other materials, the Post reported.

The FBI was working at the behest of special counsel Robert Mueller, investigating Trump’s campaign for possible collusion with Russia, the Post reported.

The raid came one day after Manafort met with the Senate Intelligence Committee and amid his voluntary turning over of documents, the Post reported.

Further, some of the documents seized by the FBI, included those Manafort had already handed over to congressional committees, the Post reported.

A representative for Manafort confirmed the raid.

President Donald Trump slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday after the Kentucky Republican said that the president had “excessive expectations” regarding his agenda, particularly on repealing and replacing Obamacare.
Trump took to Twitter:
Senator Mitch McConnell said I had “excessive expectations,” but I don’t think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?
More excuses. @SenateMajLdr must have needed another 4 years – in addition to the 7 years — to repeal and replace Obamacare….. https://twitter.com/foxbusiness/status/895268460372017152

Directly to Obama – Trump’s Lawyer Confirmed- Time for Special Counsel for Bill Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Huma Abedin, Eric Holder

Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Scandal Links Directly to Obama – CONFIRMED!

Jay Seculow of the American Center for Law & Justice – who is now an attorney for President Donald J. Trump – made a shocking accusation on his Tuesday radio show. He said he has discovered an email that connects the Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch tarmac meeting scandal directly to the Obama White House.

We’re learning more about this meeting, and it’s clear it was the point in which the Clintons were able to avoid criminal prosecution charges, which once seemed likely.

This is a stunning development, as Obama Administration alumni are denying involvement and are trying to protect their legacy. After all, their efforts didn’t work out as planned and Trump won the election despite this extraordinary level of corruption on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Watch as Sekulow explains the email, and then plays a clip of former Press Secretary Josh Earnest denying any involvement. Sekulow’s leadership position in the Trump legal team means these details are more than just rumors:
