FBI chief on a ‘collision course’ with Trump because he’s too smart to ignore facts: Andrew McCabe
Speaking on CNN this Friday, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe pushed back on President Trump's recent claim that China poses a bigger threat to the U.S. election than Russia does -- a claim that is picking up steam amongst Trump administration officials.
According to McCabe, Trump's assessment is "to be expected," adding that current FBI Director Christopher Wray's opposite assessment is a sign that he'll "probably be in conflict with this president."
When asked by CNN anchor Brianna Keilar why the Trump administration is focused on China over Russia, McCabe said it's because they "don't like the narrative that Russia is doing in 2020 the same thing that they did in 2016."
Does wildfire smoke cause long-term harm? Here’s what we know
SEELEY LAKE, Mont. — When researchers arrived in this town tucked in the Northern Rockies three years ago, they could still smell the smoke a day after it cleared from devastating wildfires. Their plan was to chart how long it took for people to recover from living for seven weeks surrounded by relentless smoke.
They still don’t know, because most residents haven’t recovered. In fact, they’ve gotten worse.
Forest fires had funneled hazardous air into Seeley Lake, a town of fewer than 2,000 people, for 49 days. The air quality was so bad that on some days the monitoring stations couldn’t measure the extent of the pollution. The intensity of the smoke and the length of time residents had been trapped in it were unprecedented, prompting county officials to issue their first evacuation orders due to smoke, not fire risk.
