    Attorney General releases summary of special counsel reportTrump not cleared on question of obstruction of justiceSupport the Guardian’s independent journalism and make a contribution 9.30pm GMT Axios has quickly drawn together a good summary of GOP reaction to the crucial fragments we’ve heard from the Mueller report so far. Here’s the top: Attorney General William Barr’s four-page summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation drew immediate praise from top Republicans, who declared vindication for President Trump after Mueller found no campaign conspiracy or coordination with Russia to influence the 2016 election. Yes, but: House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler was quick to point out that Barr’s letter was not the end of the inquiry, noting that Barr wrote in his summary that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.” In a tweet, Nadler added that his panel “will be calling Attorney General Barr in to testify” in the near future. 9.26pm GMT Goodness, suddenly the GOP loves Bob Mueller. Or at least – surprise! – Lindsey Graham does. Lindsey Graham: “Bad day for those hoping the Mueller investigation would take President Trump down. Great job by Mr. Mueller and his team to thoroughly examine all things Russia,” the Senator said. Continue reading… […]

  • Wales up and running after Daniel James’ early strike sinks Slovakia
    por Stuart James at Cardiff City Stadium el día marzo 24, 2019 a las 4:12 PM

    It was anything but convincing and there were plenty of anxious moments for Wales to endure on an afternoon when Slovakia will wonder how they failed to score but all that matters for Ryan Giggs and his players right now is that their qualification campaign is up and running with a victory. Daniel James provided the game’s defining moment when he enhanced his burgeoning reputation by marking his first competitive start for Wales with an early goal.The 21-year-old was the outstanding player on the pitch and it was a wonderful piece of opportunism that led to that crucial breakthrough as James picked the pocket of Peter Pekarik, the Slovakia right-back, who must have breathed a huge sigh of relief when Giggs withdrew the Swansea City winger with a little under 20 minutes remaining.

  • Santa Anita Park whip ban looks like a panicked response to a welfare crisis | Greg Wood
    por Greg Wood el día marzo 24, 2019 a las 3:53 PM

    The California course’s decision could cause a chain reaction but it is a big leap to suggest whipping played a part in any of the 22 fatalities at the track this yearFor the first time in three weeks horses will race at Santa Anita Park in California on Friday, beneath the spectacular backdrop of the San Gabriel mountains. The course has been closed since 5 March to allow officials to inspect and renovate the dirt track following the death of 22 horses when either training or racing in the first nine weeks of the 2019 season. The hope is that one of the racing world’s most cherished courses can begin to move on from a traumatic start to the year.But while the unforgettable setting endures, the racing itself will look quite different if The Stronach Group, which owns Santa Anita, gets its way. In what it described as “an open letter about the future of thoroughbred racing in California”, published on 14 March, TSG made two radical proposals for the resumption of racing at Santa Anita and its other track in the state, Golden Gate Fields near San Francisco.
