Comey Scheduled to Testify to Congress on Friday

Mon, 12/03/2018 - 16:13

Former FBI director James Comey will reportedly testify to Congress in a closed-door hearing on Friday. The news comes after months of back-and-forth between Comey and the House Judiciary Committee, which had issued a subpoena requesting that Comey testify in a private hearing. The former FBI director expressed a wish to testify publicly and initiated a brief legal battle over the subpoena, accusing Committee Republicans of intending “to mislead the public and to undermine public confidence in the FBI and the DOJ,” by selectively leaking bits of testimony from his private testimony.

The phase two certification sets the stage for initial operational test and evaluation next year of KC-46, which has troubled Boeing for years as it struggled to get airworthiness certifications and complete flight tests.

Iran missile tests may breach UN resolution, France and UK warn

Mon, 12/03/2018 - 14:01

France and the UK have echoed warnings by Donald Trump’s administration that Iran may be in breach of United Nations obligations by testing medium-range ballistic missiles capable of carrying multiple warheads. The remarks from Paris and London will be seen by the US government as the first sign that its key European partners may yet be persuaded to view Iran’s broader behaviour as so dangerous that their support for the 2015 Iran nuclear deal can no longer be justified. The US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, criticised Iran’s missile programme at the weekend and will be at a Nato foreign ministers’ meeting in Brussels over the next two days to underline his message about the threat to Middle East stability posed by Iran.

Monday's move marks a change of tack for Shell Chief Executive Ben van Beurden, who had previously resisted setting hard goals, saying it would be "foolhardy" to expose Shell to legal challenges.
