Despite Invite, Comey Will Not Appear Before Senate Intelligence Committee Next WeekDespite an invitation, James Comey, the outgoing FBI director, will not appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee next week, according to Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA).
Committee ranking member Mark Warner (D-Va.) told MSNBC on Friday afternoon that Comey would not be appearing, but he hoped to have him soon. The invitation had been extended for Tuesday, a week after Trump's shocking announcement that he was firing the director. 
President Trump fired Comey this week following the recommendations of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Yet, Trump has claimed he was going to fire him regardless, having thought about his removal every day since the election.

On Friday, Trump threatened Comey that if he leaks any information to the press, he should beware of any White House recordings. In an interview with NBC's Lester Holt, the president was insistent that Comey told him in those conversations that he was not the center of any investigation involving Russia.

Warner hopes to bring Comey before the committee in due time to hear his side of the story.

Trump’s Attorneys Issue Letter Certifying No Russia Business Ties
"A lot of people thought I owned..."

President Donald Trump sent a letter from his private attorneys to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., this week certifying that based on tax returns over the last 10 years, the president has no significant business ties to Russia.

The letter, which was prepared for Trump by attorneys Sheri Dillon and William Nelson with the Washington, D.C. firm Morgan, Lewis and Bockius in early March, was delivered to Graham in response to comments he made indicating that he wanted his Senate Judiciary subcommittee to look into Trump’s potential business ties to Russia.

The South Carolina senator said it would be helpful to have Trump tax returns as it investigates the matter, but he did not commit to subpoenaing them.

NBC News’ Lester Holt asked Trump on Thursday, “Can you tell us whether you, your family, your businesses, you surrogates, have accepted any investments, any loans from Russian individuals?”

Trump responded referencing the letter forwarded to Graham from “one of the most prestigious law firms in the country.”

“I have nothing to do with Russia. I have no investments in Russia, none, whatsoever,” the president proclaimed.

Sharia in New Jersey: Gov. Chris Christie vetoes child marriage ban
Gov. Chris Christie stood in opposition that would have banned all underage marriage citing religious freedom. Does Christie sanction female genital mutilation, gender apartheid, creed apartheid, jihad terror and Islamic Jew-hatred, citing religious freedom?

Is anyone surprised that Governor Christie would come down on the side of sharia law? This is the man who said, ” Sharia Law business is just crap… and I’m tried of dealing with the crazies.”
How about the victims of child marriage, forced marriage — is he tired of dealing with those crazies, too?

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie conditionally vetoed legislation Thursday that would have banned all underage marriage in New Jersey.

The bill aimed to change current New Jersey law, which permits 16- and 17-year-olds to get married with parental consent and those under the age of 16 to marry with the approval of a family court judge. A republican sponsored the bill, but Christie stood in opposition, citing religious freedom and noting the age of consent in New Jersey is 16, reports Politico.

Unchained At Last, a non-profit group that seeks to help women in arranged and forced marriages, estimates there have been at least 3,600 marriages in New Jersey involving someone under the age of 18 between 1995 and 2015 and 166 of those involved children 15-years-old or younger.
