Russian pop star at center of Russia collusion probe spills about Don Jr.

Published

on

In an episode of Vice News Tonight on HBO set to air at 7:30 p.m. EST Tuesday, Emin Agalarov, the Russian pop star and real-estate mogul at the center of much of the rumors swirling around President Donald Trump’s past visits to Russia, talks about allegations that he was an agent of Russian collusion.

He also says he had no knowledge that sex workers had been sent to Donald Trump’s hotel room when he visited Moscow in 2013.

“I have been accused of influencing — this is gonna sound very strange — influencing the American election. Me, this guy here from Azerbaijan, living in Moscow. Because I know personally Mr. Donald Trump,” Emin told Vice. “It’s quite a strange and ridiculous accusation.”

In fact, there appears to be evidence that in the interest of reviving a flagging music career, the pop star reached out to members of Trump’s team. He confirms that he spoke briefly to Donald Trump Jr.

The interview comes as President Donald Trump prepares to meet with President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland on July 16th.

Democrats are on the verge of setting a ‘time bomb’ for any candidate who can defeat Trump

Published

If a new president takes over the White House in January 2021, he or she may quickly find that the Democratic Party that just won control of the executive branch left a loaded gun in the hands of the Republicans, who are all too eager to use it.

That should be the takeaway from reports about the budget negotiations between the House Democrats and the Trump administration. According to Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur, the parties are coalescing around an agreement to raise spending by $350 billion, offset that increase somewhat with about $75 billion, and extend the debt ceiling — now set to expire in the fall — to July 31, 2021.

The US Department of Agriculture will propose a rule on Tuesday that would strengthen restrictions on food stamp recipients -- cutting approximately 3.1 million Americans from the program, according to Reuters.

Currently, 43 U.S. states allow residents to automatically become eligible for food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as SNAP, if they receive benefits from another federal program known as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, according to the USDA.

Teeth ‘time capsule’ reveals that 2 million years ago, early humans breastfed for up to 6 years

Published

on

Humans’ distant ancestor Australopithecus africanus had a unique approach to raising their young, as shown in our new research published today in Nature.

Geochemical analysis of four teeth shows they exclusively breastfed infants for about 6-9 months, before supplementing breast milk with varying amounts of solid food until they were 5-6 years old. The balance between milk and solid food in this period varied cyclically, probably in response to seasonal changes in food availability.
