In Tuesday morning’s public impeachment hearing, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, spent his questioning time trying to get the witnesses to reveal the identity of the whistleblower who filed a complaint about President Donald Trump.

National Security Council (NSC) official Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman is testifying alongside State Department official Jennifer Williams, who is detailed to Vice President Mike Pence’s office.

In early September, an anonymous whistleblower complaint lodged by a member of the intelligence community said that in a series of events culminating in a July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump used “the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.”

The complaint detailed concerns that Trump, days after withholding a nearly $400 million military-aid package, used the call with Zelensky to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Both Vindman and Williams listened in on the July 25 call, and testified they believed it was highly unusual and improper for the …read more

Tyra Banks is not only the queen of the “smize,” but she’s also an expert at making an entrance.

On Monday night, the supermodel arrived at the 2nd Annual American Influencer Awards in Hollywood, California, wearing a black-and-white printed pantsuit designed by Don Morphy, as confirmed in an Instagram post from Banks’ stylist, J. Bolin.

The Dallas-based brand is credited with crafting custom suits for celebrities like former Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams and NBA player Dwight Howard.

Representatives of Don Morphy told Insider that Banks’ pantsuit is priced at $1,500, and similar styles are available for purchase by appointment only.

Banks paired the long, oversized blazer and high-waisted pants with a lace-trimmed bra and translucent pumps, which were reminiscent of the ’90s and early 2000s.

The “America’s Next Top Model” host also accessorized with a pair of black leather fingerless gloves, adding an edgy feel to the geometric-printed ensemble.

This is not the first time Banks has been seen sporting a Don Morphy ensemble. In November 2018, the brand shared a photo of the supermodel wearing a custom lilac suit on Facebook.

North Korea Says It’s Not Interested In Further Talks With The U.S.

Watch Video

North Korea says it’s not interested in holding more denuclearization talks with the U.S. unless it starts to get something in return.

President Donald Trump appeared to hint on Sunday that another summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was in the works, tweeting “See you soon!”

But a North Korean Foreign Ministry adviser said President Trump’s tweet was simply a stall tactic to “[pretend the U.S.] has made progress” on removing nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula.

The adviser continued in his statement, saying, “As we have got nothing in return, we will no longer give the U.S. president anything to brag about.”

Negotiations between the two countries have broken down quite a bit since President Trump and Kim’s Vietnam summit earlier this year. It ultimately ended with the two leaders unable to agree on steps toward denuclearization and lifting U.S. sanctions.

As a “gesture of goodwill” towards Pyongyang, U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper recently announced the U.S. and South Korea were postponing joint military exercises planned for later this month. North Korea’s never been a fan of the exercises, citing them as a reason it needs to have a nuclear arsenal.

But the postponement wasn’t enough for North Korea’s nuclear negotiator Kim Yong Chol. He demanded the exercises be canceled entirely.
