SKY:Islamist suicide plot to assassinate Prime Minister Theresa May foiled

They interview themselves: Sky’s Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said:

“I understand that the head of MI5, Andrew Parker, briefed Cabinet ministers today (Tuesday), such is the seriousness of what they believed they have uncovered.

“It is in essence an extreme Islamist suicide plot against Downing Street. Essentially police believe that the plan was to launch some sort of improvised explosive device at Downing Street and in the ensuing chaos attack and kill Theresa May.”

The Hill:White House: Mueller has not subpoenaed Trump’s bank records

“We confirmed that the news reports [that] the special counsel had subpoenaed financial records related to the president are completely false,” Sanders said during the daily press briefing.

But, but? Didn’t Mueller tell us the opposite?

“No subpoena has been issued or received. We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources. I think this is another example of the media going too far and too fast and we don’t see it going in that direction,” she said.

Goodness. Just take a swig of tonic.

Sports: I finally saw the steelers bengals NFL game. Some good old 70s violence. But, wow. That’s worse than any game I remember watching in, well, ever. YouTube or Yahoo will have the highlights if you can’t find it on-demand.

Yahoo!: DOW has slid again under 24,200. Investors will hold their breath today, nervous over Jerusalem and possible correction fears.
