  • Plundered 'Gypsy Girl' mosaics back in Turkey after decades in U.S

    Golocal247.com news

    Missing fragments from one of Turkey's most striking ancient treasures, the haunting, wide-eyed "Gypsy Girl" mosaic, have returned home more than half a century after they were plundered and smuggled to the United States. On Saturday, the returned pieces went on display alongside the nearly 2,000-year-old mosaic of the girl, whose piercing gaze and dishevelled hair have become a symbol of Turkey's southeastern city of Gaziantep. Turkish archaeologists discovered the mosaic 20 years ago during an excavation of the old city of Zeugma, founded by one of Alexander the Great's generals, near the modern city of Gaziantep.

  • Siege politics as Democrats say Donald Trump could face prison over hush payments

    Golocal247.com news

    Senior Democrats on Sunday began talking openly about the imprisonment or impeachment of Donald Trump amid fresh allegations linking the President to hush money paid to two women ahead of the 2016 election. The result is a growing sense of crisis as Republicans begin to weigh their chances of political survival. Steve Bannon, the former Trump strategist, said 2019 was shaping up to be a year of “siege warfare”. “The Democrats are going to weaponise the Mueller report and the president needs a team that can go to the mattresses,” he told The Washington Post. “The president can’t trust the GOP to be there when it counts . . . They don’t feel any sense of duty or responsibility to stand with Trump.” The latest twist came in new court documents that said Michael Cohen, the President’s former lawyer, had acted at the direction of his employer in arranging the payments. “They would be impeachable offences. Whether they’re important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question,” Jerry Nadler, a Democratic Congressman from New York, said on CNN's State of the Union. Robert Mueller's investigation has made a slew of court filings as probe enters final phase Credit: AP “Certainly, they're impeachable offences, because, even though they were committed before the President became President, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office.” His comments highlight the fresh legal and political jeopardy facing Mr Trump, who has spent his entire term under the shadow of a wide-ranging investigation into whether his campaign team colluded with Moscow. Republicans believe the sweeping reach of Robert Mueller’s federal probe could consume the rest of the party, amidfears the White House does not have a workable strategy beyond simple denials. A sentencing memo filed by prosecutors in New York on Friday against Mr Cohen raised the stakes. “In particular, and as Cohen himself has now admitted, with respect to both payments, he acted in coordination with and at the direction of Individual-1,” it said, using the term prosecutors have deployed to refer to the President. It is the first time investigators have said they believe Mr Cohen acted with Mr Trump to silence two women who said they had affairs with the future president. Mr Trump has denied the affairs and any role in payments, and has not been accused of any offences. He issued two tweets on Sunday dismissing the evidence against him, including the recent testimony of James Comey, the former director of the FBI. “This whole deal is a Rigged Fraud headed up by dishonest people who would do anything so that I could not become President,” he wrote. “They are now exposed!” On 245 occasions, former FBI Director James Comey told House investigators he didn’t know, didn’t recall, or couldn’t remember things when asked. Opened investigations on 4 Americans (not 2) - didn’t know who signed off and didn’t know Christopher Steele. All lies!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 9, 2018 Yet the accelerating flow of court documents and legal pleadings as the investigation enters its final phase has Democrats openly discussing whether the President can be prosecuted. Although most legal analysts believe a sitting president cannot be indicted, Adam Schiff, who will head the House intelligence committee when a new term begins in January, said that would not protect him once his term ends. “There’s a very real prospect that on the day Donald Trump leaves office the Justice Department may indict him,” he told CBS. “He may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time. Democrats now hold sway in the House of Representatives, after capturing 40 seats in last month’s midterms, and can use their power to launch fresh investigations or impeach the president when their new term begins in January. In a further sign of uncertainty at the White House it on Sunday evening that Mr Trump had been unable to reach agreement with his preferred candidate to take over from John Kelly as chief of staff. Nick Ayers, who currently works for Mike Pence, the vice-president, had been expected to fill the role.

  • Duchess of Sussex's father releases her handwritten letters and details of first wedding in latest bid to reconcile

    Golocal247.com news

    When the Duchess of Sussex’s estranged father hoped to resume contact with her after he was caught colluding with the paparazzi, he claims he tried letters, text messages and family interventions to no avail.  His next step, it appears, is to release handwritten cards, photographs and extraordinary details of her first wedding to the world via a tabloid newspaper. Thomas Markle, who has not spoken to the pregnant Duchess in months, has produced a dossier of “evidence” he believes will prove their once-close relationship, from aeroplane tickets to a hospital form he says shows he suffered a real heart attack preventing him from walking her down the aisle in May. Mr Markle, who lives in Mexico, has already conducted numerous interviews with tabloids and on television, and has now released handwritten cards sent from his daughter over the years. One included $2,000 from the Duchess, then Meghan Markle, for Mr Markle to put towards a holiday, and another reads: “I love you with all of my heart now and forever.” Thomas Markle interviews on GMB earlier this year In lurid claims about her first wedding, to Trevor Engelson in 2011, he alleged guests had been given marijuana, insisting neither he or the bride had used it but that it was considered " no big deal in Jamaica".  Ms Markle, he said, had  “micro-managed everything”.   Asked by the Mail on Sunday about recent negative reports about the Duchess, he said: “I don't recognise this person. The Meghan I know was always sweet, kind, generous. She was always demanding but never rude.” Saying he had tried text messages, letters and a note via his ex-wife Doria Ragland, he confirmed he is no longer in touch with the Duchess or her new husband. Relaying an alleged conversation with Prince Harry while Mr Markle was in hospital receiving treatment for his heart, he said: “I apologised to Harry on the phone and all he said was, ‘If you'd listened to me [about how to deal with the media], none of this would have happened’. Thomas Markle did not attend the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Credit: PA “There are convicts in prisons who have murdered and committed all kinds of horrible crimes, and their daughters still visit them.” The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have never publicly responded to Mr Markle’s claims. Kensington Palace declined to comment. The intervention is likely to prove distressing for the Duke and Duchess, who are expecting their first child in the spring. Next year, they will move to Frogmore Cottage, Windsor, and the search will begin for a new Private Secretary before Samantha Cohen, who has been in the role temporarily this year, departs. Ms Cohen, a former Assistant Private Secretary to the Queen, will oversee the recruitment process for a permanent member of staff, but may stay on beyond 2019 if her help is still required, sources said yesterday.
