North Korea's Kim Jong-un meets Vladimir Putin for first time in Russian city of Vladivostok

North Korea's Kim Jong-un meets Vladimir Putin for first time in Russian city of VladivostokKim Jong-un met Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday at a summit designed to show that Washington is not the only power able to set the agenda on Pyongyang's nuclear programme. The two men embarked on a day of talks on an island off the Russian Pacific city of Vladivostok two months after the North Korean leader's summit with US President Donald Trump ended in disagreement, cooling hopes of a breakthrough in the decades-old nuclear row. Mr Putin and Mr Kim, in their first ever face-to-face encounter, shook hands outside the summit venue, a university campus, then sat down in a conference room to exchange greetings in front of the television cameras. Mr Putin said he hoped Mr Kim's visit would "help us better understand by what means we can reach a settlement on the Korean peninsula, what we can do together, what Russia can do to support the positive processes now underway." "Without question we welcome your efforts to develop dialogue between the Koreas, and to normalise North Korean-US relations," Mr Putin said.

The summit in Vladivostok provides Pyongyang with an opportunity to seek support from a new quarter, Russia, and possible relief from the sanctions hurting its economy.

But with Moscow committed to upholding sanctions until the North dismantles its nuclear programme, analysts said the summit was unlikely to produce any tangible help for Pyongyang, beyond a show of camaraderie

Stephen Colbert Sends Off Kirstjen Nielsen: ‘She’s Leaving to Spend More Time Separating Her Family’

Stephen Colbert Sends Off Kirstjen Nielsen: ‘She’s Leaving to Spend More Time Separating Her Family’Scott Kowalchyk/CBSEver since reports surfaced that DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was canned by President Trump, there’s been a spate of reputation-smoothing articles (probable source: Nielsen’s camp) alleging that the woman who presided over the separation of families and caging of children at the border was canned because she’d prevented the president and his xenophobic consigliere, Stephen Miller, from instituting even harsher immigration policies. Stephen Colbert, like many who’ve actually listened to Nielsen over the course of her tenure, wasn’t buying the lame stab at image rehab. “Last night, Nielsen resigned as Trump’s Homeland Security Secretary,” the Late Show host announced to loud cheers from his New York audience. “I believe she’s leaving to spend more time separating her family.” “Now, even though Nielsen officially wasn’t ‘fired,’ reportedly she ‘did not resign willingly.’ Not fired, but not… that sounds like splitting hairs. No, Sarah did not dump me, she begged me to dump her!’” joked Colbert. “Nielsen’s departure is not a total shock. Reportedly for weeks, Nielsen has felt ‘in limbo’—‘limbo’ is the right word here, because we’ve all been watching just how low she can go.”The late-night comedian then went over news reports claiming that Trump told aides he wanted to fire Nielsen last fall because she wasn’t tough enough on “the caravan.” “Sure, she puts kids in cages, but Trump was upset because Nielsen hasn’t enacted stricter immigration rules,” Colbert explained. “So, he just needs someone who can be crueler to children then Kirstjen Nielsen. Get ready for Secretary of Homeland Security Pennywise—and of course, she will be taking his place”—he added, before throwing to an image of Nielsen beckoning children from the sewer. If that weren’t enough, Colbert aired a parody commercial for Hallmark’s new “Kirstjen Nielsen Farewell Card Collectjion” where you can look “for the perfect way to say goodbye to Kirstjen Nielsen” with greeting cards that read, “I’m Not Crying Because You’re Leaving… I’m Crying Because You Shot Tear Gas At Me As I Was Seeking Asylum” and “Don’t Think Of This As ‘Goodbye,’ Think Of It As See You Later… At The War Crimes Tribunal.” Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

U.S. Attorney General Barr to appear before Congress for first time since Mueller report

U.S. Attorney General Barr to appear before Congress for first time since Mueller reportU.S. Attorney General William Barr will appear before a U.S. congressional panel on Tuesday for the first time since Special Counsel Robert Mueller completed his report into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The hearing before a House of Representatives appropriations subcommittee is meant to explore the Trump administration’s $ 29 billion fiscal 2020 budget request for the Justice Department, but Barr is likely to face questions about Mueller’s final report and when a redacted version will be delivered to Congress. Mueller turned his confidential report over to Barr on March 22 following a 22-month-long probe into whether Donald Trump may have colluded with Russia during his 2016 presidential campaign and whether Trump later obstructed inquiries into the matter.
