Grassley, Graham call for investigation into

Grassley's and Graham's letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray was attached to a classified memorandum that the senators said addressed apparent communications between Steele and "multiple USA news outlets" regarding the dossier.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, of Iowa, who chairs the Judiciary Committee, and Lindsey Graham, of SC, sent a short letter along with a classified memo to FBI director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein saying they believed former British spy Christopher Steele violated a federal law in relation to statements he made about the distribution of claims from the 35-page dossier.

"Everyone needs to follow the law and be truthful in their interactions with the FBI", Grassley said in a statement.

Arsenal manager Wenger given touchline ban, fine for referee incident
The Arsenal midfielder was right to be cautioned in the first half when he brought down Cesc Fabregas with a reckless tackle. Oh so close for Chelsea, and after the game, Eden Hazard rued the missed chances.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and Sen. "You had people at the senior most level at the Department of Justice saying well, we know but we're not going to tell you".

The Intelligence Committee has attempted to slap contempt citations on the department and the FBI for its investigation into claims of Russian collusion in the dossier.

The dossier was turned over to the FBI in 2016, and federal investigators worked to corroborate portions of it.

About 50 flights to, from Lambert canceled because of East Coast storm
That amount of diverted flights means carriers will have to relocate planes, find new crews and rebook passengers, Orsi said. That's on top of the roughly 650 that were canceled and the 5,600 that were delayed on Wednesday, according to the site.

Trump reportedly erupted in anger after learning that Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself: Trump, believing Sessions would be able to protect him from the Russia investigation, did everything he could to convince him not to recuse himself from it due to his previously undisclosed contact with Russian government representatives. Democrats obviously weren't taken with the criminal referral. Sen. Nunes' committee has been seeking information about Steele's research for months.

Republicans allege the dossier, which was commissioned by research firm Fusion GPS, served as the basis of the federal investigation in the president's alleged ties to Russian Federation. It was not immediately clear from the referral what Steele allegedly lied to investigators about.

They said the former MI6 officer may have made false statements about "the distribution of claims contained in the dossier". They had no immediate comment on the request.

Police seek Texas man in woman's death, abduction of 2 girls
An Amber Alert has been issued as Round Rock police search for two children in relation to the suspicious death of their mother. Miles might be in route to Louisiana in a grey 2017 Hyundai Accent with Texas license plate number JGH9845, police said.

Fusion was paid for the investigation by Perkins Coie, an intermediary for the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. "Publicizing a criminal referral based on classified information raises serious questions about whether this letter is nothing more than another attempt to discredit government sources, in the midst of an ongoing criminal investigation".
