CNN's Phil Mudd

It was reported that the Magabomber sent death threats to former CIA officers Phil Mudd. During a Friday panel discussion with CNN host Wolf Blitzer, Mudd blamed President Donald Trump for the attack.

“I only did 25 years, and I guess it doesn’t count. The president has done, what, 20 months?” Mudd said. “Look, something happened today that resulted from what I witnessed in August.”

He continued: “On about August 20th the president attacked me publicly on Twitter. And roughly 96 hours later this individual arrested today uses my name in a tweet.”

USA coach Gary Gold said he was mystified by a comment from England's Eddie Jones that the Eagles would play like "15 Donald Trumps" when they meet at the Rugby World Cup.
