Mattis in Macedonia to counter 'Russian influence' against name change

Mattis in Macedonia to counter 'Russian influence' against name changeUS Defence Secretary Jim Mattis arrived in skopje Monday to back a ‘yes’ vote at this month’s referendum on Macedonia’s name change and counter what he called “Russian influence” against the move. On September 30, Macedonians vote on whether to change the country’s name to the Republic of North Macedonia, which could open the door to NATO and EU membership. The planned vote follows a landmark deal on the change signed by Athens and Skopje in June in a bid to break a stalemate that has poisoned their relations since 1991 and hobbled Macedonia’s integration with the West.

Donald Trump accuses Robert Mueller of trying to influence 2018 midterm elections

Donald Trump accuses Robert Mueller of trying to influence 2018 midterm electionsDonald Trump has once again lashed out at Robert Mueller, accusing the Special Counsel of attempting to “impact” the 2018 midterm elections. The president attacked the head of the federal probe into Russian election meddling and possible collusion in a strongly-worded — and misspelled — tweet storm on Monday morning. “Disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the White House Councel [sic], only with my approval, for purposes of transparency,” he wrote, acknowledging recent reports that White House lawyer Don McGahn has cooperated with investigators across a series of interviews.
