Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen giving 'critical information' to Russia investigation

Fri, 09/21/2018 - 07:45

Michael Cohen, Donald Trump‘s former personal lawyer, has said he is providing “critical information” as part of the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election and possible coordination between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.

Mr Trump’s former fixer could be a vital witness for investigators as they examine whether the president’s campaign coordinated with Russians.

'Hotep' — community action in East New York

Fri, 09/21/2018 - 07:42

East New York, a residential neighborhood in the eastern section of Brooklyn, has battled poverty since the 1950s. In April 2018, I began documenting grassroots community action in response to the social problems associated with poverty — from street crime and drug addiction to gun violence.

Brexit is a prickly affair, says EU's Juncker

Fri, 09/21/2018 - 05:04

Relations between the EU and Britain have always been a bit prickly, but EU Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker said Friday that the Brexit negotiations are beginning to resemble the courtship of two hedgehogs. "We're not at war with Great Britain," Juncker told the Austrian daily Die Presse in an interview published a day after British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan was rejected as unworkable and unacceptable by the bloc's other 27 members at an informal summit in Salzburg. "We have to be careful, like two hedgehogs who love each other," Juncker said.
