  • New Iran sanctions

    Posted 2019-05-08 20:33:40 by: Mr. Bootstate

    - TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran threatened Wednesday to enrich its uranium stockpile closer to weapons-grade levels in 60 days if world powers fail to negotiate new terms for its 2015 nuclear deal, raising regional tensions as a U.S. aircraft carrier and bombers headed to the Middle East to confront Tehran.A televised address by President Hassan Rouhani, who once pledged that the landmark deal would draw Iran closer to the West, saw the cleric instead pressure Europe to shield Tehran from the sanctions imposed by President Donald Trump withdrawing the U.S. from the agreement exactly a year earlier.Rouhani's threats put the world on notice that it cannot continue to rely on Iran complying with terms of the unraveling deal in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, a U.S. campaign of sanctions hammering Iran's anemic economy and blocking its sale of oil on the global market is only making life worse, putting further pressure on both its Shiite theocracy and its 80 million people.Later Wednesday, Trump issued an executive order announcing new sanctions targeting Iran's steel, aluminum, copper and iron sectors, which provide foreign currency earnings for Tehran.Rouhani earlier compared the situation to a medical emergency for the Islamic Republic, only 40 years after its founding."We felt that the nuclear deal needs a surgery, and the painkiller pills of the last year have been ineffective," Rouhani said. "This surgery is for saving the deal, not destroying it." Iran on Wednesday stopped its sale of excess uranium and heavy water as a first step, Rouhani said, something required under the deal. The U.S. last week ended deals allowing Iran to exchange its enriched uranium for unrefined yellowcake uranium with Russia, and to sell its heavy water, which is used as a coolant in nuclear reactors, to Oman.In 60 days, if no new deal is in place, Iran will increase its enrichment of uranium beyond the accord-permitted 3.67%, which can fuel a commercial nuclear power plant. Rouhani ...

  • Trump executive privilege

    Posted 2019-05-08 20:33:40 by: Mr. Bootstate

    Update: President Donald Trump on Wednesday asserted executive privilege over Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report and its underlying investigative materials, escalating a battle with the Democrats on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. The move, announced by the Justice Department in a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, came just minutes before the panel voted to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for defying a congressional subpoena to hand over the full unredacted report. Reporting by Sarah N. Lynch; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama © Win McNamee/Getty Images U.S. Attorney General William Barr testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee May 1, 2019 in Washington.  Previous reportWASHINGTON - A U.S. House panel was poised to vote on Wednesday to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for defying a congressional subpoena that demanded the full, unredacted report by special counsel Robert Mueller. - "We have no choice," House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler told CNN in an interview on Wednesday.Nadler said he expected the full House to back it and that it was Congress' right to oversee the White House as a co-equal branch of government: "Otherwise, we have a monarchy."House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in a Washington Post interview on Wednesday, agreed Barr should be held in contempt.The fight over the complete report is just one aspect of a struggle between President Donald Trump and the Democrats investigating him, his business interests and administration, that seems destined for the courts, presenting political risks for both sides ahead of the 2020 presidential and congressional elections.The judiciary panel was set to meet at 10 a.m. EDT (1400 GMT) and vote on a resolution recommending that the full House of Representatives find Barr in contempt of Congress. Panel staff and Justice Department officials worked behind the scenes in the hopes of a deal to avert the proceedings.Late on ...
