    The European Union and Mexico reached an agreement on Saturday on a new free trade deal, a coup for both parties in the face of increased protectionism from the United States under President Donald Trump. Since its plans for a trade alliance with the United States were frozen after Trump’s election victory, the EU has focused instead on trying to champion open markets and seal accords with other like-minded countries. The agreement in principle with Mexico follows a deal struck last year with Japan and comes ahead of talks next week with the Mercosur bloc of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and...

    Much of the domestic press here in Japan is very, very skeptical about this overture, and statements by Kim and the ruling Korean Workers Party. Even the CONSERVATIVE daily news SANKEI SHIMBUN today had some good quotes about how this could be no concession at all, North just playing a shell and delay game, offering to close nuke sites that have been essentially destroyed already through too many underground tests, etc. etc. etc.

    The North Korean state media made a historic announcement Friday evening that Kim Jong-un and the Democratic People's Republic of North Korea would be suspending its nuclear missile and long range missile testing. In addition they will also be closing down their nuclear test site. The announcement comes ahead of President Trump's meeting with Kim Jong-un, a potbellied dictator he once nicknamed "Rocketman," in May. By all accounts, President Trump has been the driving force behind North Korea's sudden change in their willingness to stop their nuclear weapon program. Now, Rep. Luke Messer (R-IL) is calling for President Trump...

    Wells Fargo will pay two federal regulators a total of $1 billion to settle an array of investigations into its mortgage and auto-lending practices. Customers were forced to pay for extending the length of so-called interest rate locks on mortgage applications even when the bank was responsible for delays in the application process. Thousands of customers who bought cars with loans from Wells Fargo were forced to buy unnecessary insurance policies from the bank with premiums that topped a $1,000 a year. The bank said the policies could have contributed to about 27,000 customers having their cars repossessed after defaulting...

    WASHINGTON – Countering resistance to President Donald Trump's pick for CIA director, the spy agency gave lawmakers a declassified memo Friday showing she was cleared years ago of wrongdoing in the destruction of videotapes showing terror suspects being waterboarded after 9/11. Gina Haspel is facing opposition from some Democrats and rights groups critical of her activities related to the shredding of 92 videotapes in 2005 and her overall role in the CIA's harsh interrogation program, which critics have portrayed as one of the shadiest chapters in the agency's history. Friday's release, however, did not satisfy opponents who want to know...

    James Comey has gone from supremely smug to increasingly concerned as the long list of alleged crimes he committed during his tenure as FBI Director continues to grow. Perhaps most notable are his repeated leaks of classified information in what was a clearly politically-motivated attempt to do harm to a then-newly elected president. Watch the video below as Mr. Comey learned on live television of the legal noose tightening around his Deep State neck… Comey’s team is said to be considering shortening/ canceling his book tour and limiting all future media appearances. His publisher apparently wants the tour to continue,...

Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange.

Of those, about 10 have turned themselves in to US authorities at the border. Others are waiting for a larger contingent from the caravan to arrive before they head north, Juventud 2000 Director Jose Maria Garcia Lara said.
