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.

Explainer: Israeli election results: what happens next?

Explainer: Israeli election results: what happens next?By Maayan Lubell JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his main challenger Benny Gantz both claimed victory in Israel's election on Tuesday. Israeli TV exit polls produced differing results about who will emerge as the leader of the largest single party, and the polls have been wrong in the past. So both sides still have all to play for. However, there are indications that Netanyahu has a clearer path to forming a coalition government with other right-wing, far-right and religious parties. …

Turkey's Erdogan sees 'theft' in Istanbul vote results

Turkey's Erdogan sees 'theft' in Istanbul vote resultsTurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday questioned the results of Istanbul’s mayoral elections which his party candidate narrowly lost, saying there had been “theft at the ballot box”. Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) demanded a recount in the capital Ankara and Istanbul citing irregularities after tallies showed the party was defeated in both cities last week — in what would be a major setback in a decade and a half in power. Erdogan’s remarks appeared to signal more AKP challenges over Istanbul, the country’s economic hub and largest city, echoing commentary in pro-government media denouncing a “ballot box putsch” during the March 31 election.
