‘I think it was Russia’ – CNN News

President-elect Donald Trump said for the first time Wednesday he believes Russia was responsible for hacking ahead of the election but contemptuously rejected allegations that Moscow mounted a campaign to compromise him. In his first news conference since winning the election, a combative Trump made clear he will not mute his style when he is inaugurated in nine days. He lashed out at media and political foes alike in a bravura performance. The Trump Tower press conference confirmed the President-elect's deep desire to quickly assert power once he's sworn in. He insisted on moving speedily &'8212; too speedily for some Republicans in Congress &'8212; to replace Obamacare. He also pledged swift action on building a wall along the border with Mexico and nominating a new Supreme Court justice. But it's also clear Trump will take office amid persistent questions about his relationship with Russia. While Trump was at the podium, his nominee to become secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, faced tough questions on Capitol Hill about whether the incoming administration will view Russia with sufficient skepticism. At the news conference, Trump finally conceded he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin's intelligence agencies were behind hacks on Democratic computers ahead of the election but argued that wouldn't happen again. &'8220;I think it was Russia,&'8221; Trump said. Putin &'8220;should not be doing it. He won't be doing it. Russia will have much greater respect for our country when I am leading it than when other people have led it.&'8221; Trump, who has vowed to improve relations with Russia despite some Republican opposition, said he did not know if he would get along with Putin and noted it's possible he won't. But he could not resist a swipe at his defeated Democratic election rival, Hillary Clinton. &'8220;Do you honestly believe Hillary would be tougher on Putin than me?&'8221; he asked. He added that Russia is not the only nation that hacks US targets and accused Democrats of not having sufficient cybersecurity programs. The news conference opened with the incoming White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, slamming a &'8220;political witch hunt&'8221; following reports that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Trump. Vice President-elect Mike Pence also criticized the media before introducing Trump, who kept up his criticism of US intelligence. &'8220;I must say that I want to thank a lot of the news organizations here today because they looked at that nonsense that was released by maybe the intelligence agencies,&'8221; Trump said. He said any such move by the agencies would be a &'8220;tremendous blot on their record.&'8221; &'8220;A thing like that should never have been written, it should never have been had and it certainly should have never been released,&'8221; Trump said. The news conference follows exclusive reporting by CNN on Tuesday that classified documents presented last week to President Barack Obama and Trump included the allegations about Russia. The allegations were presented in a two-page synopsis that was appended to a report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and drew in part from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible. Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him 01:38 The FBI is investigating the credibility and accuracy of these allegations, which are based primarily on information from Russian sources, but has not confirmed many essential details in the memos about Trump. The news conference, delayed from December, was scheduled for Trump to outline how he will address questions about possible conflicts-of-interest related to his vast business empire. Trump appeared beside a large pile of files he claimed were pertinent to the companies that are going to be placed in a trust to be run by his sons. He reiterated that he doesn't plan to release his tax returns, saying they are under audit and don't include relevant information After taking a handful of questions, Trump turned the event over to Sheri Dillon, an attorney who was on hand to discuss Trump's business interests. She said Trump planned to put in place a structure that will &'8220;completely isolate him from the management of the company.&'8221; &'8220;He further instructed that we build in protections that will assure the American people that the decisions that he makes and the actions he takes as President are for their benefit and not to support his financial interests,&'8221; she said. Trump will place all his financial and business assets in a trust, Dillon said. The Trump Organization, meanwhile, will not enter into any new deals abroad and all domestic deals will be subject to a heavy vetting process. The firm will also appoint a new ethics officer, she said. The President-elect has also terminated a number of deals set to close shortly, a step that had cost him millions of dollars, she said. Dillon argued that the decision had been made not to put all Trump's assets in a blind trust or to divest of all his assets because it would be impractical. She also said that Trump should not be forced to destroy the business that he had built up. &'8220;President Trump can't unknow he owns Trump Tower,&'8221; Dillon said, explaining why a blind trust would not be a workable solution to addressing conflicts of interest issues while he is President. Dillon said Trump would take other actions to avoid the appearance of a conflict over the Emoluments Clause [&'].....»»

November road games vs. Korea, Thailand loom over Gilas Pilipinas

Unless FIBA actually makes an official announcement, the November games of the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers should be treated as if they're actually going to take place. As it stands, Gilas Pilipinas is set for a pair of road games against Thailand and South Korea in about four months time. However, the Gilas program has been pretty much stopped since a 100-70 road win against Indonesia back in February. "May FIBA qualifier pa kasi dapat sa November, wala pa sinasabing cancellation. If you look at the schedule, nandoon pa. We're supposed to be playing," SBP director of operations Butch Antonio said during the recent Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum. "We have to keep that in mind. We have to make sure that it's in our awareness na meron dapat tayong paghandaan," he added. Aside from the possibility of playing in November, Gilas still has to address its lack of an actual head coach. TNT's Mark Dickel handled the team on an interim basis during in the Indonesia game back in February but upon arriving from Jakarta, there have been no updates from the national team, let alone practices, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. "We will still have to set a meeting with Coach Tab to see how we can progress from here," Antonio said on the Gilas coaching search. "Wala right now. Kailangan pa pag-usapan ng SBP management yun," he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Paul Lee reminds fellow Tondo pride RK Ilagan to prioritize Baste

RK Ilagan is the deadliest gunner in all of college today. The pint-sized point guard is a threat from anywhere and everywhere and can put all of San Sebastian College-Recoletos on his shoulders. Now heading into his fifth and final year however, one dark cloud still hangs over his head. "One week before ng NCAA, naglaro ako ng ligang-labas, pero 'di ko po alam nun na kapag napasa na yung requirements, bawal na po pala yun," he said in The Prospects Pod last Friday. "Nakakaapanghinayang po talaga yung time na yun kasi magpapa-draft na dapat si Michael Calisaan nun tapos, kumbaga, nasama ko po siya sa ilalim." In NCAA 93, Ilagan was put under investigation by the league’s management committee for playing in a commercial league and was ultimately suspended for three games. As per league rules, a player is not allowed to see action in any other league during the season without the permission of his school. At the same time, the Golden Stags were forced to forfeit the two wins he had seen action in. When the elimination round ended, Baste found itself on the outside looking into the playoff picture - and that's how Calisaan's collegiate career came to a close. That cannot happen again - and it should not have even happened in the first place. "Bawas-bawasan mo muna yung pagliligang-labas mo," Paul Lee told Ilagan later in the episode. "I mean, hindi naman masama kasi nanggaling din ako dun, pero nung last year ko sa UAAP, I stopped playing sa ligang labas so mas na-priority ko yung UE." The two are both proud products of Tondo. As such, Lee knows Ilagan full well - just as much as he knows ligang-labas full well. And the former said that all that extra action makes it hard for a player to be at full strength. "Sobrang importante ng pahinga sa katawan. Kasi isipin mo, kunwari may laro ka ng umaga sa (PBA) D-League tapos may ligang-labas ka sa gabi," he shared. He then continued, "For sure, alam mo naman anong oras natatapos yun so wala kang pahinga para kinabukasan." As Ilagan enters his last year in college, though, the "Angas ng Tondo" reminded him to put his full focus on San Sebastian. As he put it, "Kung gusto mo talagang makamit yung dream mong maging player sa PBA, alamin mo yung priorities mo. Practice sa umaga, pahinga sa gabi, tapos marami pa rin namang pwedeng gawin like extra work." He then continued, "Priorities lang. Yung ligang-labas, hindi mawawala yan. Minsan nga, kapag dumating ka na sa posisyon ko, sa posisyon ni Kiefer [Ravena], mag-jumpball ka lang, babayaran ka na e." Sooner than later, Tondo may very send yet another great guard to the PBA - and Paul Lee is making sure that happens. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Pacers Oladipo to sit out restart of season

By The Associated Press The Indiana Pacers will finish this season without Victor Oladipo after the two-time All-Star decided to sit out because of the risk of re-injuring his right knee. Earlier this week, Oladipo told reporters he was still debating whether to join his teammates in Orlando. “We totally respect and understand Victor’s decision to not play in the restart of the NBA’s season,” Pacers president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard said Friday in a statement. “The first priority for our players is, and always will be, their health, whether that be physical or mental health. Victor has looked great in workouts, but the timing of the restart and lack of 5-on-5 activity makes it difficult to for him to commit to playing at the high level he expects with regards to further injury.” On Wednesday, coach Nate McMillan said he anticipated having Oladipo in the NBA’s “bubble,” working out with his teammates and a final decision would be made at a later date. But Oladipo didn’t wait that long. After spending almost a full year rehabbing his right quadriceps tendon, the guard returned to the court Jan. 29. Oladipo played in 13 games before the season was suspended by the COVID-19 pandemic. He was averaging 13.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists while shooting 39.1%, and appeared to be rounding into form. His contract expires after next season. “His future health is the No. 1 priority and we look forward to having him back at full strength for the 2020-21 season,” Pritchard said. “This is not a unique situation for our team, playing without key players like Victor and Jeremy Lamb. This team has shown great resolve in responding to adversity and we fully expect this will be no different. We remain excited about what they can accomplish in Orlando.".....»»
