Four pro-democracy lawmakers disqualified from Hong Kong parliament

  
Four pro-democracy lawmakers were disqualified from Hong Kong's parliament Friday in a move that will worsen growing fears the city's freedoms are under serious threat from Beijing. Former Umbrella Movement protest leader Nathan Law was among the group barred by the High Court judgement in a case brought by the city's Beijing-friendly government. It sought to remove them from the legislature for changing their oaths of office to reflect their frustrations with Chinese authorities last year. Hong Kong's youngest lawmaker and former Umbrella Movement leader Nathan Law is detained by police after he and other demonstrators staged a sit-in protest at the Golden Bauhinia statue, given to Hong Kong by China to mark the 1997 handover, in front of the Convention and Exhibition Centre in Hong Kong on June 28, 2017 Credit: ANTHONY WALLACE/AFP The judgement comes after Beijing issued a special interpretation of Hong Kong's mini-constitution, the Basic Law, to insist that oaths be taken in a "sincere and solemn" manner. The High Court said the interpretation was "binding" on all Hong Kong courts. "The word 'solemn' bears the commonly understood meaning of being dignified and formal," the judgement said. Concerns that China is squeezing semi-autonomous Hong Kong have sparked calls by some activists for self-determination or even independence for the city which have angered China. A pro-government supporter shouts slogans while pro-democracy lawmakers Edward Yiu Chung-yim, Nathan Law, Leung Kwok-hung also known as 'long hair' and Lau Siu-lai speak to the media in Hong Kong on July 14, 2017 Credit: ISAAC LAWRENCE/AFP The four legislators dismissed Friday were not staunchly pro-independence but two of them have advocated self-determination for Hong Kong. The interpretation last November was prompted by a string of protests during the swearing in of lawmakers following citywide elections. Two pro-independence legislators have already been disqualified by the High Court after they inserted expletives and draped themselves with "Hong Kong is not China" flags during their oath-taking.

Two Israeli police officers were killed on Friday morning when three Palestinian gunmen opened fire in Jerusalem near the al-Aqsa Mosque, the most sensitive religious site in the city, Israeli police said. All three of the attackers were killed in the shootout. One of them fled into the holy site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, and was shot dead in front of the Dome of the Rock shrine. The shooting led to the cancellation of Friday prayers at mosque for the first time since 2000, leaving thousands of worshippers unable to reach the site. The attackers were all Israeli citizens of Palestinian descent, Israel's security services said, and all appeared to be related. They were named as Mohammed Ahmed Mohammed Jabareen, 29, Mohammed Hamed Abd Al-Latif Jabareen, 19, and Mohammed Ahmed Mafdal Jabareen, 19. Mohamammed Hamed Jabreen posted a selfie of himself in front of the Dome of the Rock shortly before the attack, with the message: "Tomorrow's smile will be more beautiful, God willing." One of Jerusalem attackers posted a selfie at al-Aqsa right before the shooting. He wrote: "Tomorrow's smile will be more beautiful" pic.twitter.com/Bfs2iLh0li— Raf Sanchez (@rafsanchez) July 14, 2017 Friday's attack was one the most serious in Jerusalem in months, both because it involved firearms and because it happened so close to a religious site that has often been a flashpoint for violence. The al-Aqsa/Temple Mount is the third holiest site in Islam and the holiest in Judaism. Under an agreement struck after the 1967 war, Jews are only allowed to visit the site at certain times and cannot pray there. Jewish access to the site is a constant source of tension. Israeli authorities said they were searching the mosque to see if it weapons had been hidden inside it. Video block text Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, and Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, spoke after the attack and both appealed for calm. Mr Abbas condemned the attack but also called for Israel to allow Friday prayers to go ahead, according to the official Palestinian news agency. The attack began shortly before 7am at the Lion's Gate, one of entrances to Jerusalem's Old City that leads towards the mosque complex. The attackers were armed with several guns and opened fire at Israeli forces stationed at the gate, Israel police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. One of the attacker then fled into the streets of the Old City and made it into the al-Aqsa complex, police said. Mobile phone footage from the mosque showed him being shot dead by a group of Israeli soldiers. No group immediately claimed credit for the attack but Hamas, the Islamist militant group that runs the Gaza strip, praised the attack. "The operation was a natural response to Israeli terrorism and desecration of al-Aqsa mosque," a spokesman said. The two police officers killed were both from Israel's Druze minority. They were named as Kamil Shnaan, 22, the son of a former Israeli member of parliament and Haiel Sitawe, who became a father three weeks ago. A wave of unrest that broke out in October 2015 has claimed the lives of at least 277 Palestinians, 42 Israelis, two Americans, two Jordanians, an Eritrean, a Sudanese and a Briton, according to an AFP toll. Israeli authorities say most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks. Others were shot dead in protests and clashes, while some were killed in Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip. The violence has greatly subsided in recent months.......

Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo dies in custody, struck by liver cancer

  
By Joseph Campbell SHENYANG, China (Reuters) - Chinese Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo, a prominent dissident since the 1989 Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests, died on Thursday after being denied permission to leave the country for treatment for late-stage liver cancer. Mourning his death, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Liu was a "courageous fighter for civil rights and freedom of expression", while the French, British and U.S. governments called on China to allow Liu's family to move around freely. Already seriously ill, Liu, a thorn in the ruling Communist Party's side since he helped negotiate a deal to allow protesters to leave Tiananmen Square before troops and tanks rolled in, was moved last month from prison to a hospital in the northeastern city of Shenyang.......

Incredible 'first ever' photos capture wild lioness nursing leopard cub

  
Astonishing photos show a wild lioness suckling a leopard cub in a "truly unique case" in the African Serengeti. A guest staying at a safari lodge in Tanzania's Ngorongoro Conservation Area captured the images of a five-year-old lioness, known locally as 'Nosikitok,' nursing a three-week-old leopard. An incredibly rare sight Credit: Joop van der Linde/Ndutu Safari Lodge via AP Dr Luke Hunter, president of Panthera, a wild cat conservation organisation, said the behaviour was "mystifying". "I know of no other example of inter-species adoption or nursing like this among big cats in the wild," he said. "This lioness is known to have recently given birth to her own cubs, which is a critical factor. She is physiologically primed to take care of baby cats, and the little leopard fits the bill - it is almost exactly the age of her own cubs and physically very similar to them. "She would not be nursing the cub if she wasn't already awash with a ferocious maternal drive," he added. "It is quite possible she has lost her own cubs, and found the leopard cub in her bereaved state when she would be particularly vulnerable." The photographs were taken by a guest at a lodge in Tanzania Credit: Joop van der Linde/Ndutu Safari Lodge via AP Dr Hunter believes the leopard may struggle to survive if it remains in the pride, explaining: "It is very unlikely that the lioness' pride will accept it." He added: "Lions have very rich, complicated social relationships in which they recognise individuals—by sight and by roars—and so they are very well equipped to distinguish their cubs from others. If the rest of the pride finds the cub, it is likely it would be killed." "Even its early exposure to lion society would not override the millions of years of evolution that has equipped the leopard to be a supreme solitary hunter. "I am sure it would go its own way."

Fishermen express fury as Fukushima plant set to release radioactive material into ocean

  
Local residents and environmental groups have condemned a plan to release radioactive tritium from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant into the Pacific Ocean. Officials of Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the plant, say tritium poses little risk to human health and is quickly diluted by the ocean. In an interview with local media, Takashi Kawamura, chairman of TEPCO, said: "The decision has already been made." He added, however, that the utility is waiting for approval from the Japanese government before going ahead with the plan and is seeking the understanding of local residents. fukushima timeline The tritium is building up in water that has been used to cool three reactors that suffered fuel melt-downs after cooling equipment was destroyed in the magnitude 9 earthquake and tsunami that struck north-east Japan in March 2011. Around 770,000 tons of highly radioactive water is being stored in 580 tanks at the site. Many of the contaminants can be filtered out, but the technology does not presently exist to remove tritium from water. "This accident happened more than six years ago and the authorities should have been able to devise a way to remove the tritium instead of simply announcing that they are going to dump it into the ocean", said Aileen Mioko-Smith, an anti-nuclear campaigner with Kyoto-based Green Action Japan. Takashi Kawamura, chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Co. Holdings Inc. (Tepco), speaks during a group interview at the company's headquarters in Tokyo Credit: Bloomberg "They say that it will be safe because the ocean is large so it will be diluted, but that sets a precedent that can be copied, essentially permitting anyone to dump nuclear waste into our seas", she told The Telegraph. Fishermen who operate in waters off the plant say any release of radioactive material will devastate an industry that is still struggling to recover from the initial nuclear disaster. "Releasing [tritium] into the sea will create a new wave of unfounded rumours, making all our efforts for naught", Kanji Tachiya, head of a local fishing cooperative, told Kyodo News. ......

Liu Xiaobo, China's most prominent political prisoner, dies aged 61 under guard at hospital

  
Liu Xiaobo, a Nobel Peace laureate and China's most well-known political prisoner, died at a heavily guarded hospital on Thursday after a battle with liver cancer. The death of the 61-year-old dissident and veteran of the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989 sent shockwaves through China's activist community and among human rights campaigners across the world. Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, said Mr Liu was a "courageous fighter", while the Norwegian Nobel Committee accused Beijing of having a "heavy responsibility for his premature death". Rex Tillerson, the United States' Secretary of State, expressed condolences over the death of Mr Liu and called on Beijing to release his wife, Liu Xia, and allow her to leave China. Nobel Peace Prize for Chinese dissident, Liu Xiaobo 01:10 Mr Liu, who was jailed in 2009 for state subversion, was transferred from prison to hospital in the north-eastern city of Shenyang last month. Amid increasingly desperate calls from supporters for him to be granted his dying wish to receive treatment for his condition abroad, Mr Liu remained in China where he died on Thursday evening, local officials said. His friends claim China's refusal to allow him to travel overseas was an attempt to shorten his life, and ensure he could not criticise Beijing in his final moments. "I think it is a political murder," Hu Jia, an activist and friend of Mr Liu told The Telegraph. "I am in so much pain, but I have no more tears to shed as I have already cried too much over the past few days. I was expecting him to be taken away from his hospital bed, but no miracle happened." Liu Xiaobo and his wife Liu Xia, who was kept under effective house arrest by Beijing Credit: Reuters Mr Liu was handed an 11-year prison term for calling for sweeping political reforms in a manifesto entitled 'Charter 08'. He became only the third person to receive a Nobel Peace award while imprisoned by his own government, and the first to die in custody since tuberculosis killed Carl von Ossietzky, 48, a German pacifist, in 1938. Mr Liu had spent time in prison in China before 2009, and was already the country's most famous government critic when he was sentenced for his part in Charter 08. But he became a global figure when he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 2010 at a ceremony where he was represented by an empty chair. The award was made in recognition of Mr Liu's "long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China". Despite the Nobel Committee being independent from the government, China froze diplomatic ties with Norway – although relations have warmed in recent months. In this undated handout photo, Liu Xiaobo is attended to by his wife Liu Xia in hospital Credit: AP Beijing had repeatedly dismissed foreign criticism of its treatment of Mr Liu, saying that it is an internal affair. Sophie Richardson, China director at Human Rights Watch, said: "The Chinese government's arrogance, cruelty, and callousness are shocking – but Liu's struggle for a rights-respecting, democratic China will live on." Mr Liu was born to an intellectual family in Jilin province in China's northeast and led a life of fearless activism. The former professor of literature at Beijing Normal University wrote about the value of individual freedoms and nonviolent resistance. He was influential at the Tiananmen Square protests, which ended when tanks rolled into central Beijing killing hundreds, possibly over a thousand protesters. Protesters mourn outside the Chinese liaison office in Hong Kong Credit: AP Photo/Kin Cheung Mr Liu was said to have saved the lives of many students when he negotiated between the army and protesters as they ended their occupation of the square. Chinese police have kept Mr Liu's wife, Liu Xia, under house arrest for several years and activists in China are now concerned for her fate. Calls for Ms Liu to be given her freedom were also made by Jean-Yves Le Drian, the French Foreign Minister. Mo Shaoping, Mr Liu's lawyer, told Th

By Robin Emmott BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Russia sought to reassure NATO on Thursday that its war games in September would respect international limits on size, but NATO's chief remained wary about their scale and scope. Russia and Belarus aim to hold maneuvers that some NATO allies believe could number more than 100,000 troops and involve nuclear weapons training, the biggest such exercise since 2013. NATO allies are nervous because previous large-scale Russian exercises employed special forces training, longer-range missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.......

People think Trump has an imaginary friend named Jim

  
President Trump once described his friend Jim as a "very, very substantial guy," but people are seriously starting to doubt if Trump's friend Jim is even real. In the past, Trump has used his friend Jim as a puppet to push messages about Paris. Trump spoke of Jim on the campaign trail and, in February, used his story as an example at CPAC in Maryland to show how terrible terrorism has become in Paris. SEE ALSO: Trump is getting crushed at his own handshake game "No matter the issue, Trump knows a guy" https://t.co/cIOonfB7HyMeet Jim, "a very, very substantial guy" who says Paris is no longer Paris pic.twitter.com/u2H7kiCbon — Bradd Jaffy (@BraddJaffy) February 24, 2017 Nobody knows if Jim is real or not, and people are strongly considering that Trump made up an imaginary friend and named him Jim. According to a new report from the Associated Press, the identity of Jim remains a mystery. Trump has never provided a last name for Jim, and the White House did not respond to a request for comment about the identity of Jim. Following the story of Jim at CPAC in February, Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, trolled Trump and Jim on Twitter using a photo of herself with a Disney exec, joined by Mickey and Minnie Mouse. À Donald et son ami Jim, depuis @LaTourEiffel nous célébrons l'attractivité de #Paris avec Mickey et Minnie. pic.twitter.com/unuRB1traY — Anne Hidalgo (@Anne_Hidalgo) February 24, 2017 "To Donald and his friend Jim," Hidalgo wrote in French. "Celebrating the attractiveness of Paris with Mickey and Minnie." In March the New Yorker also attempted to find out who the mysterious Jim is — unsuccessfully. They proposed plenty of men named Jim which Trump was either friendly with or worked with previously, but were unable to find him. So is Jim even real? Let us remind you that Trump — yes, the President of the United States of America — has admitted to making up fake people in the past, so it's not below him to possibly make up a Jim to push a narrative. In 2016, The Washington Post reported that Trump previously posed as men, named John Barron and John Miller, to act as a bragging spokesperson for himself. Trump denied the allegations, but the Post also dug up a lawsuit from 1990, in which Trump confirmed that he had previously used the name John Barron. "I believe on occasion I used that name," Trump said at the time. It's a simple fix, really. The White House can tell the world the true identity of Trump's friend Jim. Until then, the world will speculate that Jim is very much an imaginary person. can someone please explain to me if imaginary Jim is real or not https://t.co/AQFDImX2IS — chelsea hassler (@chelseaadelaine) July 12, 2017 The President of the United States has an imaginary friend named Jim https://t.co/iMNewPVg5q — Henry Leconte (@henrylec1) July 12, 2017 Trump in Paris: The curious case of his friend "Jim."

Families of Isil fighters 'forced into rehabilitation camps by Iraqi military'

  
Families of alleged Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) fighters are being forced from Mosul into detention camps by the Iraqi military to receive "physiological and ideological rehabilitation", Human Rights Watch has said. While the liberation of Mosul from the jihadists has been applauded worldwide, human rights groups have warned that Iraqi forces and allied militias have been carrying out retributions campaigns against people they accuse of ties to Isil. Iraqi forces have been accused of carrying out extrajudicial executions and Iraq's Western allies have warned that such persecution will make it far harder to overcome the sectarian tensions that Isil exploited in the first place. In a new report, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said at least 170 families of suspected Isil fighters had been forced into rehabilitation camps and accused Iraqi forces of "collective punishment". Isil defeated in Mosul after three years 01:15 "Iraqi authorities shouldn't punish entire families because of their relatives' actions," said Lama Fakih, the group's deputy Middle East director. "These abusive acts are war crimes and are sabotaging efforts to promote reconciliation in areas retaken from ISIS." Iraqi officials have said that such camps are necessary to try to unwind some of the damage done to people living under Isil rule and to prepare them to re-enter Iraqi society. The first camp near Mosul was opened at Bartalla, a Christian town outside of Mosul that was devastated by the jihadists, and is designed to hold 2,800 families. At least 10 women and children have died on the way to the camp or inside the camp itself, medical workers told HRW. Most of the people brought there were women and children. Iraqi authorities said they would be screened and investigated for their ties to Isil before being allowed to leave. Some of the families there said openly that their sons or husbands had fought with the jihadist group. But others appeared to have been victims of Isil's brutal rule. Iraqi forces suspect ISIS families among fleeing civilians 01:43 One woman said she had divorced in an Isil-run court last year but that the jihadist judge who presided over the case then took her a sex slave and kept her in his home. He fled with his family as the fighting drew nearer but left her locked in the house, where Iraqi forces found her and assumed she was an Isil family member, she said. Now she is being held at the camp along with other women and children. ......

'Something could happen': Donald Trump suggests he could change position on Paris climate agreement, after talks with Emmanuel Macron

  
US President Donald Trump appeared to hold the door open to reversing his decision to pull America out of the 2015 Paris climate change agreement after a charm offensive from his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron in the French capital. On a visit to France for July 14 Bastille Day celebrations to mark the centenary of America's entry into the First World War, Mr Trump was asked about whether he might review his position on climate, which drew widespread response from other world leaders, French in particular. To general surprise at the Elysée Palace, the US president said: "Something could happen with respect to the Paris accords." Trump greets Macron with another gripping handshake 00:39 He added: "Let's see what happens, but we will talk about that over the coming period of time and if it happens that will be wonderful and if it doesn't that'll be OK too." Mr Macron said that while he was in "strong disagreement" with Mr Trump, he "respected" the fact that he was being true to "campaign commitments", and that France remained committed to the accord. There was no "sudden and unexpected change," he insisted, however. "I hope in the end to be able to persuade him." Clearly charmed by his visit to a capital he only recently decried as unsafe and "infested by terrorism", Mr Trump appeared to place America's special relationship with Britain on the back burner as he waxed lyrical about "America's first and oldest ally". Emmanuel Macron shares a laugh with Donald Trump "France helped us secure our independence," he went on, saying the two countries had an "unbreakable bond" and calling Mr Macron his "friend". In bringing Mr Trump to Paris, Mr Macron has clearly stolen a march on the embattled Theresa May. London's offer of a state visit for Mr Trump met fierce criticism and warnings that he would be greeted by mass protests, and he decided to postpone it until next year. The US leader was also quizzed about a friend named Jim, who he previously has claimed no longer frequents Paris any more because it was rife with Islamist terrorists. Asked about his previous disparaging comments, he said: "It's going to be just fine because you have a great president. "I think is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. He's a tough president. I really have the feeling that you are you going have a very peaceful and beautiful Paris. I'm coming back," he beamed. After a bumpy start to their relationship, notably their now notorious muscular handshake, the two leaders clearly clicked this time. "Emmanuel, nice to see you. This is so beautiful," the US president told Mr Macron as they met at the Hotel des Invalides where Napoleon Bonaparte and other French war heroes are buried. President Trump arrives in Paris 01:51 Patting Mr Trump on the back several times, the French president smiled as they began a tour of the grand 17th century military complex. Mr Trump also hazarded a Gallic double peck on the cheek to French first lady Brigitte, dressed in white. Melania, in red, only received the one bise from Mr Macron. The US president was then captured complimenting Mrs Macron's appearance in video posted by the French government's Facebook account. At one point, he turns to Brigitte Macron, 64, and tells her: "You're in such good shape." He repeats the observation to the French president before turning back to Mr Macron's spouse, and remarking: "Beautiful." The first ladies then escaped for a private visit of Notre Dame cathedral, where Melania lit a candle, and the pair went on a 45-minute boat ride down the Seine. Emmanuel Macron welcomes US First Lady Melania Trump while his wife Brigitte Macron welcomes US President Donald Trump Credit: AFP The two leaders held talks lasting an hour in the Elysée Palace and a half before the two couples dined on lobster and caviar at the Michelin-starred Jules Verne restaurant on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower.

Galaxy Note 7 FE teardown: So much deja vu

  
Samsung's really hoping that the third time is going to be the charm for the Galaxy Note 7. It's rolled out a slightly revamped version of the Note 7, called the Note 7 FE (that's fan edition, not a shortening of covfefe), in South Korea. From the outside, the Note 7 FE looks identical to the Note 7, so we're going to have to go digging inside to see where Samsung's spent all its time and money. Luckily, that's exactly what the folks at iFixit have done, and we can all go along for the ride. The big difference, as you'd absolutely expect, is the battery. The original Note 7's specially-exploding battery had a capacity of 13.48Wh, and the new one is 12.32Wh, nearly 10% less. iFixit also reports that the cell itself is physically a little smaller, which could address one of the possible reasons the battery exploded -- not enough room for the battery to breathe and no protection from physical damage. One surprise is that according to iFixit's sleuthing, the Note 7 retains Samsung's 8-core Exynos processor. The Note 7 FE was expected to have a Snapdragon 821 processor instead, so it's unclear whether that was planned and then changed, or if Samsung purposely decided to stay with its own processor. From a hardware standpoint, nothing else is different. The only real difference for users between the phone that went on sale last fall and the Note 7 FE is the addition of Bixby, Samsung's long-delayed virtual assistant that's kinda-sorta meant to be a rival to Siri.......

Donald Trump says he will invite Vladimir Putin to the White House, but only 'at the right time'

  
President Donald Trump said he will invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the White House, but only at "the right time". He said: "I don't think this is the right time, but the answer is yes, I would. "Look, it's very easy for me to say absolutely, I won't. That's the easy thing for me to do, but that's the stupid thing to do. If you don't have dialogue, you have to be fools." Mr Trump made the comments on Air Force One on Wednesday night but they were only published late on Thursday. Mr Trump also described how he had pressed Mr Putin at the G20 in Hamburg last week over election hacking but had not wanted to get into a "fistfight". The US president said he asked Mr Putin "very simply were you involved with the meddling in the election? He said, absolutely not. I was not involved. He was very strong on it. "I then said to him again, in a totally different way, were you involved with the meddling? He said I was not, absolutely not." He then decided to move on to discuss Syria. Mr Trump said: "He said absolutely not, twice. What do you do? End up in a fistfight with somebody, OK?" He added: "I'm not saying it (the election hacking) wasn't Russia. What I'm saying is that we have to protect ourselves no matter who it is. You know, China is very good at this. I hate to say it, North Korea is very good at this." Speaking later at a press conference alongside French president Emmanuel Macron, Mr Trump defended his son Donald Jr. Mr Trump said "most people in politics" would have acted similarly after his son was called to testify in front of a Senate committee over a meeting with a Russian lawyer during the presidential election. The extraordinary prospect of the president's eldest son being publicly quizzed by senators about his connections to Russia could take place as early as next week. Chuck Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, confirmed he was sending a letter to Mr Trump Jr asking him to attend, and that the committee would issue a subpoena if necessary. The committee is one of several in Congress that have launched inquiries into Russian meddling in last year's US presidential election. A special counsel, Robert Mueller, is also investigating. President Trump, speaking in Paris, defended his son as a "wonderful young man" and said what he had done was "very standard in politics" which was "not the nicest business in the world". He said: "I think, from a practical standpoint, most people would have taken that meeting. It's called opposition research or even research into your opponent. Zero happened from the meeting. A lot of people would do it. "I've had many people call up 'Oh, gee, we have information on this factor or this person, or frankly, Hillary'. I think it's a meeting most people in politics probably would have taken." Trump on Don Jr: 'Anyone would have taken that meeting' 01:21 Mr Trump Jr confirmed this week that he met lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in New York on June 9, 2016. He disclosed emails that showed the meeting was set up by an acquaintance Rob Goldstone, a British-born music publicist who represented a Russian pop star. In the emails Mr Goldstone told Mr Trump Jr that he would be meeting a "Russian government attorney" and could expect sensitive information damaging to Hillary Clinton which was part of a Russian effort to support his father. Ms Veselnitskaya has denied connections to the Kremlin, and Mr Trump Jr has said the meeting "went nowhere" so he did not tell his father about it. High profile Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee and will question Mr Trump Jr, promised to "pursue justice without favour" and added: "Were there other meetings? I'm going to go wherever the facts take us." Mr Graham added: "If any government tried to help my campaign I would say no because they're trying to to destroy democracy. It's a pretty simple proposition in America. He's a relevant witness. This is a chance for Donald
