Trump news: California attorney general sues White House over national emergency declaration with 12 states expected to join

Trump news: California attorney general sues White House over national emergency declaration with 12 states expected to joinDonald Trump is being accused of waging a “relentless attack” on the FBI since taking office as the fallout from his decision to declare a national emergency to secure border wall funding continues. The remark comes from former deputy director of the bureau Andrew McCabe – dismissed by ex-attorney general Jeff Sessions in March 2018 after being accused of leaking information to the media – in an interview with NPR’s Morning Edition to promote his new insider account of the bureau, The Threat. President Trump has already responded angrily on Twitter to Mr McCabe’s appearance on CBS’s 60 Minutes on Sunday, in which the latter said he had discussed removing the president under the 25th Amendment and ordered an investigation into whether ex-director James Comey was removed in May 2017 to impede the Russian election hacking investigation.

US weather forecast: Northern states to be colder than Antarctica as temperatures drop to -40C

US weather forecast: Northern states to be colder than Antarctica as temperatures drop to -40CParts of America are enduring temperatures colder than Antarctica this week as a blast of Arctic air from the polar vortex has caused the mercury to plunge as low as -40C (-40F). US officials are urging residents from northern states to stay inside as the deep freeze sets in across the country, bringing with it life-threatening conditions that have forced rail workers in Chicago to start track fires to keep them warm enough to function, and led to warnings not to breathe too deeply when outside. Brian Hurley, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s weather prediction centre in Maryland, said: “The heart of this cold … is hitting us now.

United States recognises Venezuela's opposition leader as 'interim president'

United States recognises Venezuela's opposition leader as 'interim president'The White House has recognised Venezuela's opposition leader as the country's rightful president, as the army fired tear gas at anti-government protesters in Caracas.  It is a move that puts the US on collision course with Nicolas Maduro, the beleaguered Leftist president. Mr Maduro announced shortly after Mr Trump's declaration that he was ending diplomatic relations with the US and gave all US personnel 72 hours to leave the country. "The imperial government of the United States is leading a coup against us, in order to install a puppet government they can control," he said. "Get out." Mr Trump's announcement came after the opposition leader symbolically swore himself in as president. Nicolas Maduro, the embattled president of Venezuela On Wednesday Juan Guaido, the president of the Venezuelan national assembly, raised his right hand in front of tens of thousands of Venezuelans, “assuming the duties of the executive branch.”   The move had been anticipated for weeks after Mr Guaido announced he was “willing” to assume the presidency on Jan 11, one day after Mr Maduro was inaugurated for a second term as president.  The opposition-controlled parliament and about 60 countries have promised not to recognise Mr Maduro in his second term, and claim the 35 year-old politician should assume the presidency according to several articles of the constitution. They consider Mr Maduro’s May 2018 re-election a sham.  Donald Trump, the US president, on Wednesday said the opposition-controlled national assembly, of which Mr Guaido is the head, was "the only legitimate branch of government duly elected by the Venezuelan people”. Mr Trump said that the US did not consider Mr Maduro the legitimate ruler of the Latin American country, and deemed "the office of the presidency therefore vacant."  Protests in Caracas on Wednesday After the symbolic move in Caracas, Mr Guaido turned to the crowd, urging them to raise their hands and “swear to recover democracy and the constitution.”  The government opponents, who had urged Mr Guaido to make the move for weeks, jumped and cheered ecstatically as the lawmaker took the oath.  “I’m just overjoyed, our country will never give up,” said Helen Rodriguez through tears after she joined Mr Guaido and the crowd in singing the country’s national anthem. “This day will forever be remembered as the day we recovered our democracy.”   But for now, the country’s armed forces remain loyal to Mr Maduro, while Mr Guaido has repeatedly said he would need the army to support him in his bid to oust the president. In a show of support for Mr Maduro, national guard troops launched tear gas at those attempting to gather in other parts of the city on Wednesday.  Riot police clash with protesters in Venezuela Opposition politicians had urged those in Caracas to meet in several points around the city, but authorities only allowed demonstrators to gather in the city’s east.  “We were just walking calmly, and we want peace and freedom,” Rocio Piña said as she fled from tear gas, her face smeared with a paste to ease the effects of the chemicals. The move by Mr Guaido to symbolically assume the presidency was expected to make him a target for state security forces, who may attempt to arrest him using treason charges. Intelligence authorities had already briefly detained and released Mr Guaido on Jan 13.  The thousands of Venezuelans who did arrive at the stage where Mr Guaido took the oath filled several city blocks to hear him speak, waving hundreds of Venezuelan flags in the heat of the tropical sun. Many shouted: “We now have a president” and: “Freedom.”  Caracas was rocked by street barricades and protests in the two nights leading up to Wednesday’s protests, with local media reporting four already killed.  Following Mr Guaido’s swearing in ceremony, dozens of masked men with molotov cocktails in hand could be seen heading towards main highways.
