"There may be grounds", Lynch told WBUR's Radio Boston.

President Donald Trump said Thursday he did not ask FBI Director James Comey to end his investigation into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. President Donald Trump was about to get the question - the one he'd avoided for almost 48 hours but could no longer.

"It's hard to imagine what these people, who generate such nonsense and rubbish, can dream up next", said Putin.

U.S. Rep. Justin Amash is the first Republican lawmaker to float the idea of impeachment if the memos written by former FBI Director James Comey are true, according to The Hill. "Since he's left government, the old telephone number that I had for him, I haven't been able to get through". He added that the Trump administration's account of Comey's firing had "a lot of inconsistencies".

WannaCry is your fault — Microsoft to NSA
You should make multiple backups - to cloud services and using physical disk drives, at regular and frequent intervals. Computers and networks that hadn't recently updated their systems are still at risk because the ransomware is lurking.

North Korea is reportedly celebrating the test of a "perfect weapon system"
Earlier Sunday, the White House press secretary's office said in a statement that "North Korea has been a flagrant menace for far too long".

Merkel and Macron agree to draw up roadmap to deeper European Union integration
Macron also said he was opposed to mutualising "old debt" between eurozone countries but he was open to sharing future burdens. Mr Macron is the conservative Mrs Merkel's fourth French president in almost 12 years as chancellor.

U.S. President Donald Trump is in "impeachment territory" following revelations the president reportedly asked former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey to stop investigating Michael Flynn, according to a former adviser to several past presidents, including Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.

The White House was also warned by acting attorney general Sally Yates that Flynn might be blackmailed by the Russians for misrepresenting his conversation with the Russian ambassador to Vice President Mike Pence.

The Russian president said he initially found debates about Russia's meddling in USA politics as "funny" but said Moscow is now "concerned because it's hard to imagine what the people who produce such nonsense can come up with next". "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".

There are "a number of encounters with the president that concerned him, and he wrote very detailed memos about those instances", the person said. "He is a good guy". Two members of the Senate intelligence committee, Senator Richard Burr and Senator Mark Warner, commented on the Senate's request. Putin's offer comes just days after several news reports claimed that Trump revealed classified information to Lavrov about an ISIS plot.
