ClintonTrump debate was lots of hype with little substance Brock experts say

Monday night’s U.S. presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will go down as one of the most-watched political events in history. But was it the turning point some expected it to be? Brock University political scientist Paul Hamilton doesn’t think so.“For all the hype, the debate did not really shed more light on either candidate,” he said. “Both performed consistently with their previous efforts on the (primary) debate stage.”As for who won the debate, Hamilton said it’s not a typical election campaign so the gauge of what normally wins a presidential debate doesn’t apply.“I was surprised by Trump’s lack of focus and control. He frequently interrupted Clinton and veered from his message at times. By the normal standards of debate, I think Clinton won, but this is not a normal election contest.”“Most elections are a process of a candidate revealing themselves to the electorate, but this is not that election,” Hamilton said. “This is two very well-known personalities and people have crystalized opinions of them.”As for the performance of moderator Lester Holtz, Hamilton said he was in a tough spot.“I like him, but I thought he kind of lost control of it at times. The thing with Trump is he will take every opportunity he can to interrupt, interject and insult.”Brock professor Tony Volk in the Department of Child and Youth Studies is an expert in bullying issues and was watching Trump’s actions carefully Monday night.“My reactions are similar to what many pundits said. I think Clinton won the debate. Trump tried to bully her, but was unable to as she wasn’t meek or weak,” said Volk.Like Hamilton, Volk said he was surprised by Trump’s lack of self-control.“My biggest surprise, of sorts, was that he was so easily baited into responding and getting off script. It’s not surprising given that’s a pattern of his behaviour, but I thought he would be able to control it better than he did.” read more

Star Trek fans plan to restore The Next Generation Enterprise Bridge

first_imgStar Trek is one of those TV shows that creates super fans. Fans that will go that extra mile to show their love and appreciation for the show, even long after it’s finished. These fans have certainly done just that in a bid to save a piece of Star Trek’s history.Paramount Pictures was going to send the Enterprise Bridge from Star Trek: The Next Generation to the landfill, but a non-profit group of fans called the Project Enterprise Restoration found out and managed to convince Paramount to save the set rather than having it destroyed.Luckily, the set is made from mostly fiberglass so even though it’s been left to fend for itself for quite some time, it’s mostly intact. However, it will need to be refurbished and Jean Luc Picard’s chair is the first thing on the list to be restored.The group need to work out how much the project will cost, but when they do they hope to get it on Kickstarter. They aim to restore the bridge completly and make it open to the public for movie screenings, meetings, fund raisers, tours, filming, and anything the Star Trek community want to do with it. It’s not going to be easy though, as they say they need the support of famous fans of the show as well as the Star Trek actors, which could be tricky.It would be great to see the set back to it’s former glory, and there’s certainly plenty of super fans who would likely support the project. I mean, who wouldn’t want to sit in the Captain’s chair?More at the Enterprise D Bridge Restoration website, via Engadgetlast_img read more

Blackberry to be sold for 47 billion but will stay Canadian technically

first_imgEver since Wayne Gretzky went to the Los Angeles Kings, Canada has lived in fear of Americans taking all our best stuff. A juggernaut with roughly ten times our population and an even greater lead in GDP, the US naturally sucks up our musicians and actors, our surgeons and sports stars. But at least we always had Blackberry, the company that made smartphones before there were smartphones, and which represented the country’s hopes that the technology industry would save a stagnating national economy. Here in the north, Blackberry is more than a mobile technology company — but nearly a decade of missteps and refusals to fulfill the demands of the market have turned it into little more than a long shot target for risk-taking American conglomerates.Today, Blackberry announced that it has received a buyout offer at $9 per share, or $4.7 billion in total, from investment firm Fairfax Financial. This offer will take the tanking company private, and keep it Canadian owned — technically. Though Fairfax is based in Toronto, almost two thirds of its employees are in the United States. This takeover has been anticipated ever since Fairfax CEO Prem Watsa resigned from the Blackberry board of directors over a potential conflict of interest.Blackberry’s new suite of phones like this Z30 failed to revitalize sales.This comes on the heels of Blackberry’s devastating financial predictions, warning of a nearly $1 billion dollar loss for the last quarter and announcing plans to lay off 40% of its workforce. In fact, the company has been doing so poorly that many analysts have expressed surprise at the offer’s generosity. The buyout offers almost twenty cents over the base stock price for Blackberry (BBRY) $8.82, and with major stockholders expressing doubt that they’ll ever get back their initial investments that offer is likely to be too enticing to ignore.Blackberry sold only 3.7 million smartphones in the second quarter — compare this to Apple’s reported nine million units sold of its iPhone 5s and 5c in just the three after launch. Where services like its Blackberry Messenger once delivered unique benefits to consumers, now more open solutions make abound. Between software leaks, so-so hardware releases, and damning service outages, Blackberry simply does not command the trust or respect it once did.The real question in all of this is whether Fairfax Financial has any concrete idea of how to convince consumers that Blackberry is back, for good.last_img read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … Mumbai Indians are favorites for IPL 2018 glorycenter_img India is a country that houses few of the richest people in the world and Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani heads that list. He is not only the richest man of India but indeed of the entire continent of Asia. By profession, he is an Indian business magnate, the chairman, managing director, and the largest shareholder of Reliance Industries Limited, a Fortune Global 500 company and India’s most valuable company by its market value.Thus, when the Indian Premier League was born, it was natural that he would throw the hat in the market to get involved in what has turned out to be one of the most extravagant and popular cricket tournaments in the world. In 2008, he and his company bought the franchise based out of Mumbai and named the team Mumbai Indians. Mumbai Indians is one of the most widely followed and beloved franchises of the Indian Premier League. The team is owned by India’s biggest conglomerate, Reliance Industries, through its 100% subsidiary IndiaWin Sports. Thus, the buzz around the team is naturally huge and being three-time champions, adds to their fan following. In a bid to cash in on the connection the fans have for the franchise, the Mumbai Indians recently released a video on Netflix documenting their 2018 season of the IPL and one particular incident has caught the attention of everyone – the Ambani car garage.  Netflix screegrabIn one particular episode of the Netflix original titled ‘Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians’, the players of the franchise can be seen visiting the garage of the Ambanis which contains an unbelievable car collection. The players’ visit was a part of a game wherein they visited the massive garage in the pursuit of clues to progress in a treasure hunt game. But what caught everyone’s attention was the plethora of expensive and stylish cars perfectly lined up in the garage of the Ambani residence in Mumbai. The Ambani residence, called Antilia, has a garage that can hold up to 168 cars and a few of them were in view during the treasure hunt. The first frame shows us various luxury SUVs and saloons lined up on the left side. This includes a Bentley Bentayga, a Bentley Mulsanne finished in white, a Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Mercedes G63 AMG, a Range Rover SUV, a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, Porsche Cayenne and another Range Rover SUV. This is only a part of the collection of cars at their disposal as the video does not show an all-around view of the garage.But the car which took the cake came later in the video — a BMW i8. Among a collection that boasts mostly of luxury cars, this blue i8 is perhaps the most sporty cars that the family owns. Talking about the BMW i8, it is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine, which is combined with an electric motor that produces a total of 357 Bhp and 570 Nm. Another interesting fact about this sports car is that it has a fuel efficiency of about 47 km/l, thanks to BMW’s intelligent hybrid technology. BMW i8Netflix screegrabAccording to a report by Cartoq, the Ambanis own many other cars that are not shown in the video. “Other super expensive cars that are owned by the family and are not shown in the video include a second Bentley Bentayga, a Mercedes Benz W221 S-Guard and BMW 7-Series High Security. They recently bought a Lamborgini Urus, which was the fastest SUV in the world till last month (title now held by Bentley Bentayga Speed). Also, a Rolls Royce Cullinan SUV is their latest buy, which goes on to show the love for luxury SUVs they have.”last_img read more

BMI is a calculation that takes into account both a patient’s weight and height. Traditionally, only a patient’s weight has been taken into consideration when prescribing appropriate dosage of radiopharmaceuticals for positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) scans.“Using BMI allows us to more specifically adjust dosing to individual patients,” said Sarah Krumrey, a technologist in the Department of Nuclear Medicine at St. Louis University Hospital, St. Louis, Mo., and lead author of the study, Should FDG Dose Be Based on BMI Instead of Body Weight? presented at SNM’s 55th Annual Meeting, June 14–18 in New Orleans. Current procedures for PET/CT scans with FDG use a patient’s weight as the main factor in determining the appropriate dose. The goal of this study was to compare changes in PET/CT image quality as a result of switching from a weight-adjusted to a BMI-adjusted FDG dose. A BMI-adjusted dose was used in a total of a 104 patients undergoing PET/CT exams for known or suspected cancer. In this double-blinded study, PET/CT scans were reviewed and graded to access the image quality. Switching to a BMI-adjusted dose resulted in improved image quality and lower required dosage of 18-FDG. “Based on our study, we believe that adjusting the FDG dose according to a patient’s BMI could lead to new imaging protocols,” added Krumrey. “The results of this study—which takes into account individual patient factors—could further advance personalized medicine,” said Krumrey. “Unlike a blanket approach, this allows us to avoid unnecessary dosing and better treat the patients in our care.” Scientific Paper 2010: S.A.

A new exhibition Cartier Treasures King of Jewe

first_imgA new exhibition, “Cartier Treasures: King of Jewelers, Jewelers to Kings” is now on display at the Palace Museum in Beijing until November 22nd. Featuring precious antiques on an unprecedented scale, the exhibition assembles the essences of the East and West, demonstrating the Palace Museum’s dedication to world art.This exceptional display will take place in the Exhibition Hall of the Meridian Gate, whose recent renovation won the Inaugural Heritage Award Jury Commendation for Innovation by UNESCO for the quality of the resources and techniques implemented, all of which were in harmony with the building’s original character. More than 350 items, including archives dating from the founding of Cartier to its creations from the 1970s, will be unveiled. Partly dedicated to royal jewels, the exhibition will be housed in China’s former Imperial Palace and will be illustrated by historical documents relating to European royal courts, which earned Cartier thanks to King Edward VII of England, its reputation as the “Jeweler of Kings and King of Jewelers.” Moreover, part of the items selected highlight the Chinese influence on Cartier creations: lacquer ware inlaid with mother-of-pearl, ancient carved and engraved pieces of jade, and divinities and fantastic animals created by the jeweler’s hand. Such creations bear witness to the bonds that have united Cartier with the Far East since the beginning of the 20th century. The distinctive creativity, style and expertise of the jeweler are illustrated by a selection of drawings and archive documents, together with a set of rarely displayed plaster casts from the Cartier archives. The related experts of Palace Museum have celebrated the cultural and artistic aspects of Cartier, as well as its contribution to the heritage of the decorative arts.Inaugurated a quarter of a century ago, the Cartier Collection today comprises more than 1,360 historic pieces that mirror the social evolution and which have been repurchased over the years by Cartier from private owners or at public auctions. Inventoried using original archive documents, the items in the Cartier Collection include sumptuous jewelry, precious watches and exceptional timepieces, such as the Maison’s famous mystery clocks. Exquisite articles and more specific accessories complete this cultural legacy: ladies’ vanity cases, decorated boxes, cigarette cases and writing instruments. Exhibiting articles from the Cartier Collection at the Palace Museum in China is part of an ongoing cultural exchange between the Parisian jeweler, based in the Rue de la Paix, and the Palace Museum.www.cartier.comlast_img read more

S having edged close

S. having edged closer to energy independence with natural gas and oil shale no longer needed Riyadh the way it once did and was noticeably less attentive More worrying still President Barack Obama unlike other past Presidents was willing to engage persistently with Iran the Saudis chief nemesis Iran despite remaining a thorn in Washingtons side was aligned with the US in its desire to destroy ISIS the Sunni extremists who executed Americans on camera and used Saudi textbooks in their schools Faced with this panorama the young prince quietly but ruthlessly consolidated power in the kind of bold strokes that would have left Niccolò Machiavelli feeling bashful At the time of King Salmans ascension his son was so unknown outside the kingdom that even his age was a subject of speculation (he was 29) yet the new monarch bet everything on him He made bin Salman Defense Minister in charge of what was then the worlds third largest military budget after the US and China and the young prince promptly launched a war pummeling Iran-backed rebels in Yemen He was also named head of Aramco the behemoth state oil company chief of economic development and deputy crown prince The final title designated bin Salman as second in line for the crown behind his 55-year-old cousin Mohammed bin Nayef who famously survived an attack by an al-Qaeda prisoner who detonated a suicide bomb hidden inside his own rectum But bin Nayef was no match for his cousins ambition In June 2017 the king removed bin Nayef as crown prince and replaced him with bin Salman Five months later bin Salman rolled the dice again imprisoning dozens of people including princes aides and businessmen in the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh They were accused with corruption though there was no formal legal process and no transparency And at least one aide who died in custody showed signs of physical abuse the New York Times reported "He was far more powerful than people assumed and the opposition was far weaker" says Robert Malley a former top White House official under Obama Allegations of corruption have long been used as a political bludgeon in Saudi Arabia where pilfering from the public till has often been synonymous with royalty In 2001 Prince Bandar al-Sultan publicly estimated that $50 billion had been transferred to royals private accounts since the kingdoms founding Bin Salmans government claimed to recover twice that amount from its captives but he hasnt been shy about his own spending He paid more than half a billion dollars for a yacht and $300 million for a gold-encrusted chteau near Versailles all with money that he insists he earned on his own "If Im corrupted please show me the proof" he says "It is well known that King Salman and his sons and his team they are super clean Everyone in Saudi Arabia knows that" Whether shakedown or rough justice the Ritz episode eliminated his chief political rivals and cemented his power "It was a kind of coup détata bloodless coup détatof the old system" says former ambassador Freeman But it also had the effect of rattling investor faith in the kingdoms stability "All power that had been distributed under the previous constitutional arrangement very widely under a checks-and-balances arrangement has been compressed and concentrated into the hands of one man" says Freeman That in turn undercut bin Salmans revamp of Saudi Arabias economy society and world statusall the things he came to the US to promote Bin Salmans Vision 2030 plan calls for establishing a $2 trillion sovereign wealth fund the worlds largest Half he says would be invested inside the kingdomhe talks enthusiastically about the future of carbon fiber and plans to make Saudi Arabia the world leader in solar energyand half in enterprises abroad He also wants to partially privatize Saudi Aramco in what would likely be the largest initial public offering in history But after the Ritz the IPO came off the calendar and the US tour went on Bin Salman meets with Bill Clinton in New York City Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos in Seattle and Richard Branson in the Mojave Desert Calif Bandar Algaloud—Saudi Kingdom Council/Getty Images; Twitter/SaudiEmbassyUSA (2) In Manhattan the crown prince hit Starbucks with former mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg He wore a blazer and a shirt open at the collar It was full regalia at MIT but a business suit in Seattle for Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates Clothes may not make the man but if your message is modernity and flexibility they say more than "reformer" a label blanched of meaning by its application to a parade of more traditional Saudi royals And bin Salman has turned heads "No one has said what he has been saying in the entire history of the kingdom" says Bilal Y Saab a senior fellow at the Middle East Institute "Its significant" Bin Salman has made some concrete changes In June women will drive on Saudi roads independent from male chaperones Music festivals and movie theaters are opening though questions remain about separate seating for men and women The kingdoms religious police are being reined in In a setting as sterile and controlled as Saudi Arabia these modest changes have generated genuine enthusiasm among activists many of whom had been skeptical of bin Salman The crown prince says the kingdom has to be sufficiently "livable" both to satisfy young Saudis and to attract foreigners to work there He also hopes to draw tourists and announced on April 2 that the kingdom will relax visas for them "I believe in the last three years Saudi Arabia did more than in the last 30 years" bin Salman says But the crown prince also fits into a larger global trend: authoritarianism Bin Salman has taken even greater control of the Saudi media and in the judgment of members of a UN panel has "arbitrarily" imprisoned 60 activists journalists academics and clerics since September Saudi Arabia remains an absolute monarchy the crown prince notes adding that he has no plans to dilute his power in the coming 50 years that he might rule "What we should focus on is the end not the means" he says "If the means are taking us to that end that good end and everyone agrees on it it will be good" Bin Salman says he ultimately wants freedom of speech improved employment economic growth security and stability for Saudi Arabia And he says his absolutist approach is a better means to get it than the chaos that followed the Arab Spring elsewhere in the region The problem for Saudi Arabia the region and the world is that the means are wreaking havoc in the meantime In the name of standing up to Iran bin Salman launched a 2015 air war in Yemen that has cost more than 10000 lives and devastated what was already the poorest country in the Arab world Of the 16749 bombing runs recorded since 2015 by the Yemen Data Project an independent human-rights monitoring group nearly a third targeted nonmilitary sites "You are waiting to die if you are here" says Radhya Almutawakel of the Yemeni nonprofit Mwatana Organization for Human Rights speaking by phone from Sanaa the capital The UN calls it "the worst man-made humanitarian disaster of our time" Bin Salman remains resolute Although he told TIME he does not rule out sending ground troops his priority is that the war remain painless for Saudis "We want to be assured that whatever happens the Saudi people shouldnt feel it" he says "The economy shouldnt be harmed or even feel it So we are trying to be sure that we are far away from whatever escalation happens" The White House so far is happy to play a supporting role in the Yemen war providing intelligence midair refueling and billions of dollars of munitions Houthi fighters inspect the site of a reported airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition that targeted Yemen’s presidential palace in Sana‘a on Dec 5 Mohammed Huwais—AFP/Getty Images For decades "stability" was what the US expected Saudi Arabia to provide in the Middle East But if anything the rapprochement with the White House has emboldened the new regime Shortly after Trump departed Riyadh from his first foreign visit last May the Saudis stunned the world by launching a blockade on Qatar In November bin Salman appeared to make a hostage of Lebanons Prime Minister Saad Hariri for more than two weeks after Hariri announced his resignation in a late-night video during a trip to Riyadh Amid regional and global uproar the Lebanese leader returned to Beirut and recanted his resignation days later The ultimate target in all these adventures was Iran which arms the largely Shiite Houthis in Yemen has warm relations with Qatar and plays a central role in Lebanese politics It is also the great rival of Saudi Arabia both for regional power and leadership of the Muslim world Bin Salman calls Iran the source of every ill in the Middle Eastincluding to many scholars astonishment religious extremism in Saudi Arabia The crown prince dates this extremism to 1979 the year Sunni radicals stormed the holiest site in Islam the Grand Mosque at Mecca and called for the overthrow of the House of Saud on the grounds of insufficient piety In bin Salmans improbable telling the zealots were inspired by the Islamic revolution that had installed a theocracy in Iran a few months earlier Whatever the cause the result was catastrophic Cowed by the accusation of impiety the House of Saud already long-dependent on religious conservatives for moral authority in the country gave them a freer hand The result was a Muslim fundamentalism that coincided with yet another fateful event of 1979: the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan In confronting that Cold War threat the US made what turned out to be a shortsighted move: fighting the Russians by encouraging Muslims to embrace a war against the infidels In that milieu al-Qaeda came into being Historians note that Saudi Arabia itself was founded on a similar bargain In the 18th century the very first Saudi king struck a pact to get the services of the fanatical fighters who followed Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab The allies agreed that the House of Saud would govern the temporal kingdom but spiritual life would be the province of the severe brand of Islam named for its founder Bin Salman claims the severity is overstated: "What Wahhabist" he asks smiling Wahhabism is universal shorthand for the unforgiving brand of Islam that millions of foreign workers have learned in Gulf mosques and that Saudi Arabias ministry of Islam has exported abroad Bin Salman quibbles "First of all Saudi doesnt spread any extremist ideology" he insists "Saudi Arabia is the biggest victim of extremist ideology" Bin Salman says his government is intent on undoing lessons taught by extremists and says he has Islamic doctrine on his side "If someone comes and says women cannot participate in sport" he says "The Prophet he raced with his wife If someone comes and says women cannot do business the wife of the Prophet she was a businesswoman and he used to work for her as Prophet So the Prophets practice is on our side" The kingdom is also softening its public posture toward Israel acknowledging an alignment against Iran that has existed discreetly for years in the realms of intelligence and back-channel diplomacy "We have a common enemy and it seems that we have a lot of potential areas to have economic cooperation" the crown prince tells TIME "We cannot have relations with Israel before solving the peace issue with the Palestinians because both of them they have the right to live and coexist" he says but "when it happens of course next day well have good and normal relation with Israel and it will be in the best for everyone" All this adds up to a different Saudi Arabia one way or another To outsiders the most obvious danger is from bin Salmans impulsiveness in foreign policy The running war in Yemen is the most worrisome example "This was a somewhat immature ill-advised and improvised action" says Stephen Seche former US ambassador to Yemen that "raises questions about whether he can carry out other very ambitious plans" The challenge is to reconcile that and the iron fist he shows rivals at home with the charming fellow flying around the US For all the contradictions few come away from an encounter with bin Salman unaware of the force of his personality intellect and devotion to change "He really is trying to project a certain image and hes worked on it extremely hard" says Saab It is more than enough to give hope to those who want to see the possibility of positive disruption in the Middle East Says the Woodrow Wilson Centers Miller: "I guarantee you that people who this man has sat down with are asking themselves: Whats new in the Middle East Two

interest: The company showed off one of its data centers in Sparks Nevada to Wired’s Stephen Levy for a good piece on its renewable-energy efforts They’re led by Lisa Jackson a former administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency Ninety-four percent of the power at Apple’s corporate campus and server farms is now renewable provided by sources such as solar wind and hydroelectric energy One hundred percent of the power at Apple’s own data centers — it also uses co-location facilities owned by others — is renewable Both Google and Facebook are also aiming for 100% renewable data centers but have a long way left to go However since Apple unlike those companies is primarily a producer of physical objects being environmentally correct involves a different set of challenges and a lot more than data: Aluminum is huge for Appleits the main material in laptops phones and iPads Thus the impact of mining and processing that metal makes up for a substantial part of Apples carbon footprint Thats why Jackson took notice last year when an engineer told her that he felt something wasnt right with the way Apple measured that impact Later a second engineer reported similar suspicions In her telling Jackson could have dismissed this disquiet by noting that Apple was simply conforming to the standard methods of measuring the damage in a given process But she encouraged efforts at Apple to revisit those standards Indeed Apples reexamination discovered that using the conventional yardstick it was dramatically underestimating the emissions its aluminum use was dumping into the atmosphereby a factor of four Apple had to adjust its figures to reflect this As a result the company did not fulfill its expectation that its carbon footprint would be ten percent smaller in 2013 than previous yearsit was nine percent larger Apple would have to work harder to make its goals Levy’s story is full of intriguing nuggets but one item a lot of people are probably wondering about goes unmentioned He says that the only thing about his data-center visit Apple told him he couldn’t share with the world was the name of the manufacturer of the servers that power it All he can disclose is that “they are not Mac Minis or anything else that youd buy in an Apple store” Contact us at editors@timecomWhen President Trump accused Barack Obama of wiretapping him when he was a candidate Obama denied it and Democrats criticized him for levying the claim without evidence Now even Trump’s allies are backing away from the accusation Although the White House is standing by the claim key Republican leaders are breaking with the President and mounting pressure for Trump to retract the statement Here’s a look at the top Republicans who have distanced themselves from Trump on the issue Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc): “At least so far with respect to our intelligence community no such wiretap existed” the House Speaker said Thursday “We see no evidence of that” Sen Richard Burr (R-NC): The Senate Intelligence Committee chairman delivered a joint statement with the panel’s top Democrat Thursday which said “Based on the information available to us we see no indications that Trump Tower was the subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government either before or after Election Day 2016" Rep Devin Nunes (R-Calif): “I don’t think there was an actual tap of Trump Tower” the House Intelligence Committee chairman said at a press conference Wednesday Referencing Trump’s original claims on Twitter Nunes added “Are you going to take the tweets literally And if you are then clearly the president was wrong" Attorney General Jeff Sessions: "Look the answer is no” the Sessions said Wednesday when asked whether he had given Trump any reason “to believe that he was wiretapped by the previous Administration" Sen Lindsey Graham (R-SC): “Well hold up the deputy attorney generals nomination until Congress is provided with information to finally clear the air as to whether or not there was ever a warrant issued against the Trump campaign" Graham said on NBC Wednesday jumping off Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley’s saying that the committee would hold up the nomination until it received an FBI briefing on ties between the Trump Administration and Russia Graham also threatened to subpoena the Justice Department for any evidence wiretapping warrants or applications Mike Pence: On March 8 Trump’s own vice president shied away from defending his claim “What I can say is that the President and our Administration are very
