UPDATE 7-Iran says it seized tanker after collision, UK calls move a "hostile act"

UPDATE 7-Iran says it seized tanker after collision, UK calls move a "hostile act"GENEVA/LONDON, July 20 (Reuters) – Britain denounced the Iranian seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker in the Gulf as a “hostile act” on Saturday, rejecting Tehran’s explanation that it had seized the vessel because it had been involved in an accident. Friday’s action by Iranian Revolutionary Guards in the global oil trade’s most important waterway has been viewed in the West as a major escalation in three months of confrontation that took Iran and the United States to the brink of war.

Analysis: Trump pattern is create a crisis, retreat, move on

Analysis: Trump pattern is create a crisis, retreat, move onPresident Donald Trump was defiant and declarative, with all the hammer-on-anvil subtlety that has charted a now-familiar pattern of his presidency: create a crisis, retreat, declare victory, move on. “Not only didn’t I back down, I backed up,” Trump insisted Friday. The president shifted his bulldozer of an administration into reverse, announcing that he would drop his push to seek the citizenship status of all American residents on the census, instead ordering other agencies to share data with the Department of Commerce, which oversees the decennial survey.

Jeff Sessions Urges Congress to ‘Accept the Results’ of Mueller Report And Move On

Jeff Sessions Urges Congress to ‘Accept the Results’ of Mueller Report And Move OnFormer attorney general Sessions urged Congress, and the country at large, to "accept the results" of special counsel Robert Mueller's recently-released report and move on to other matters of governance during a speech at Amherst College on Wednesday.“I think it’s about time to accept the results, and let’s get on with the business of America,” Sessions said during a speech to the college Republicans, according to the New York Times.While Mueller failed to prove the underlying crime of coordination with the Kremllin, he did detail a number of instances in which Trump tried to curtail or otherwise affect the probe. Sessions cautioned Congress against pursuing their current agenda of further investigating whether the behavior attributed to President Trump in the Mueller report constitutes obstruction of justice.“The process was followed and a decision has now been rendered,” he said, adding that he had “the greatest confidence in the integrity of our system.”Sessions recused himself from the Mueller probe after it was revealed that he failed to report his meeting with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak, a decision that soured his relationship with President Trump, who repeatedly castigated him in public and private for failing to "protect" him from the investigation.The former Alabama senator's appearance on campus was met with vigorous protest: some 50 students and faculty stood up and walked out of the chapel where he was speaking as soon as he began to deliver his remarks, according to the Times. They then gathered outside the venue, holding and signs and chanting in opposition to the immigration policies Sessions pursued while serving in the Trump administration.Sessions, meanwhile, lamented the state of free speech on college campuses, where, he argued, conservatives are under siege.

In unprecedented move, U.S. names Iran's Revolutionary Guards a terrorist group

In unprecedented move, U.S. names Iran's Revolutionary Guards a terrorist groupThe action by Trump, who has taken a hard line toward Iran by withdrawing from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and re-imposing broad economic sanctions, marks the first time the United States has formally labeled another nation’s military a terrorist group. The U.S. step, which takes effect on April 15, prompted an immediate response from Iran, whose Supreme National Security Council in turn designated U.S. military forces as a “terrorist organization,” Iranian state-run TV reported. “The U.S. military bases and their military forces in the region will be considered terrorist bases and terrorist forces that will be dealt with and confronted accordingly,” Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi told Iranian state TV, calling the U.S. decision “a major strategic mistake.” “The IRGC is the Iranian government’s primary means of directing and implementing its global terrorist campaign,” Trump said in a statement.
