    Politics Trump asked intelligence chiefs to push back against FBI collusion probe after Comey revealed its existence Trump asked two of the nation’s top intelligence officials in March to help him push back against an FBI investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and the Russian government, according to current and former officials. Trump made separate appeals to the director of national intelligence, Daniel Coats, and to Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, urging them to publicly deny the existence of any evidence of collusion during the 2016 election. Coats and Rogers refused to comply with the requests, which they both deemed to be inappropriate, according to two current and two former officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private communications with the president. Trump sought the assistance of Coats and Rogers after FBI Director James B. Comey told the House Intelligence Committee on March 20 that the FBI was investigating “the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.” Trump’s conversation with Rogers was documented contemporaneously in an internal memo written by a senior NSA official, according to the officials. It is unclear if a similar memo was prepared by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to document Trump’s conversation with Coats. Officials said such memos could be made available to both the special counsel now overseeing the Russia investigation and congressional investigators, who might explore whether Trump sought to impede the FBI’s work. White House officials say Comey’s testimony about the scope of the FBI investigation upset Trump, who has dismissed the FBI and congressional investigations as a “witch hunt.” The president has repeatedly said there was no collusion. Current and former senior intelligence officials viewed Trump’s requests as an attempt by the president to tarnish the credibility of the agency leading the Russia investigation. A senior intelligence official said Trump’s goal was to “muddy the waters” about the scope of the FBI probe at a time when Democrats were ramping up their calls for the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel, a step announced last week. Senior intelligence officials also saw the March requests as a threat to the independence of U.S. spy agencies, which are supposed to remain insulated from partisan issues. “The problem wasn’t so much asking them to issue statements, it was asking them to issue false statements about an ongoing investigation,” a former senior intelligence official said of the request to Coats. The NSA and Brian Hale, a spokesman for Coats, declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

    Politics Donaldof Trumpler has touched The Orb. Here's what that means Donaldof Trumpler's trip to Saudi Arabia over the weekend went largely as planned. He appeared jovial on his first trip abroad, he announced billions in Saudi investment in the U.S., and his speech on terrorism was well received. Last, but not least, he touched The Orb. And here’s Trump at the opening of the “Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology” in Riyadh pic.twitter.com/gshRT2nFLU — BuzzFeed News (@BuzzFeedNews) May 21, 2017 Donaldof Trumpler became the first sitting U.S. president (hijacked) to touch The Orb. The Orb, of course, has existed long before the United States and even the concept of democracy, government, or even society. Its origins remain unknown and no sitting U.S. president has ever dared touch it, out of both fear and respect for its Power. So what does it mean that Donald Trump touched it? Well, a few things. By touching The Orb, Donald Trump has seen all of history in one agonizing moment. All of The Orb's wealth of knowledge, which spans from literally everything from the very first dawn to the Earth's dark and horrid last days, has been burned into Donald Trump's mind in one horrifying instant. He has seen everything that has happened or will happen. This has no doubt changed him as a person. However, it is presently unclear if he even came out of this event with his sanity still in tact. For the next few months or years, Donaldof Trumpler will be unable to shake the image of seeing his own death. It will replay in his mind on a constant loop. He will likely do everything he can to try to prevent this outcome, but as we all know, the future is already written and his feeble attempts will prove fruitless. He will either be able to accept this fact, or it will consume him entirely. Donaldof Trumpler has met and fought The Dark One. At the end of his awful vision Donald Trump will have come face-to-face with Satan, Dark Lord of Hades, who explained to him the true and harrowing meaning of life, information no mortal should bear. Hearing these disgusting words from Satan's dreadful voice will have no doubt provoked Donald Trump to impulsively attack him. They battled in Hell's arena where Mr. Trump inevitably lost. As punishment he was cast into the fires below and tormented by Servants of Hell: creatures so horrific the human mind is incapable of imagining them. As a reward for completing The Orb's Trial, Donaldof Trumpler has been temporarily granted God's powers. If The Orb is pleased with Donald's trial he will have been rewarded with the powers of God. Fortunately, Donald lacks the complex understanding required to wield these powers to their full extent, if at all. The knowledge of having the divine power of God and the inability to use them to their full potential will undoubtedly frustrate him into derangement. The powers will most likely wear off harmlessly before he has the chance to accidentally undo the creation of Earth. Before long, his lust for The Orb will become insatiable, and he will need to be confined in a locked room until his desire wanes. The Orb's enigmatic essence is a powerful magnet, and Donald Trump's desire to once again touch The Orb will burn hotter than one thousand suns in a phenomenon known as "Orb Madness." It will drive him into hysterics and he will become inconsolable. For his own safety, he will be confined to a padded cell until it has been determined The Orb no longer dominates his thoughts. This could take days, months, or even years. Bottom line? It's too soon to determine how this will play out, or even if The Orb was pleased with Donald's touch. Only time will tell and all we can do is speculate and pray to The Orb that Donald was a worthy enough subject to lay a mortal hand upon its enchanted surface.

    By John Lee. France’s former Ambassador to Iraq has gone on trial over charges of tax fraud. Boris Boillon (46) was arrested in 2013 trying to take a train to Belgium with €350,000 in cash. The youngest ambassador under President Nicolas Sarkozy, Boillon said the money was payment for work he had done as a private consultant involved in the reconstruction of Iraq and said the money was declared by his consultancy firm Spartago. He was appointed ambassador to Iraq in 2009, and moved to Tunisia in 2011. (Sources: BBC, The Guardian) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    During a visit to Iraq, an Iranian deputy minister was updated on the latest status of two sports arenas that Iranian companies are constructing in Baghdad. Mojtaba Khosrotaj, Iran’s deputy minister of industry and head of the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran (PMOI), held a meeting with Iraq’s minister of youth and sports and with the Arab country’s deputy minister of industry and minerals in Baghdad for business talks. During the meeting, attended by Iran’s ambassador to Baghdad, Khosrotaj was briefed on the development of the projects that Iranian technical and engineering companies are carrying out in Iraq. According to reports, Iranian companies are building two stadiums in Baghdad, namely al-Zawraa stadium with 12,500 seats and the 60,000-seater al-Tajiat stadium, the construction of which have been completed 41 percent and 30 percent, respectively. Elsewhere in the meeting, Iraq’s deputy minister of trade requested that Iranian companies assist Iraq in constructing concrete and metal crop silos and in renovating its old silos. Last year, the former head of the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran called for efforts to implement a free trade agreement with Iraq that officials from the two countries had signed in 2014.

    U.S. and coalition military forces continued to attack the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria on Sunday, conducting 22 strikes consisting of 72 engagements, Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve officials reported yesterday. Officials reported details of yesterday’s strikes, noting that assessments of results are based on initial reports. Strikes in Syria In Syria, coalition military forces conducted 18 strikes consisting of 29 engagements against ISIS targets: Near Dayr Az Zawr, four strikes engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed three ISIS barges, two ISIS wellheads, a vehicle, an ISIS oil storage tank and an ISIS oil processing equipment item. Near Raqqa, 13 strikes engaged 12 ISIS tactical units and destroyed 11 fighting positions, nine vehicles, two supply caches, a mortar system, an ISIS headquarters; and suppressed an ISIS tactical unit. Near Tabqah, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed two fighting positions. Strikes in Iraq In Iraq, coalition military forces conducted four strikes consisting of 43 engagements against ISIS targets: Near Kirkuk, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed two fighting positions. Near Mosul, three strikes engaged three ISIS tactical units and a sniper; destroyed 18 fighting positions, nine medium machine guns, six vehicle bombs, four rocket systems, three rocket-propelled grenade systems, three heavy machine guns, a command-and-control node, a vehicle, a supply cache, a mortar system and a tunnel; damaged 15 ISIS supply roads, a fighting position; and suppressed an ISIS tactical unit. Additionally, two strikes were conducted in Syria and Iraq on May 20 that closed within the last 24 hours: Near Raqqa, Syria, a strike destroyed an ISIS headquarters and an ISIS staging area. Near Mosul, Iraq, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed four vehicles, two heavy machine guns, two fighting positions and two vehicle bombs. Part of Operation Inherent Resolve These strikes were conducted as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the operation to destroy ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The destruction of ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria also further limits the group’s ability to project terror and conduct external operations throughout the region and the rest of the world, task force officials said. The list above contains all strikes conducted by fighter, attack, bomber, rotary-wing or remotely piloted aircraft; rocket-propelled artillery; and some ground-based tactical artillery when fired on planned targets, officials noted. Ground-based artillery fired in counterfire or in fire support to maneuver roles is not classified as a strike, they added. A strike, as defined by the coalition, refers to one or more kinetic engagements that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single or cumulative effect. For example, task force officials explained, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone ISIS vehicle is one strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against a group of ISIS-held buildings and weapon systems in a compound, having the cumulative effect of making that facility harder or impossible to use. Strike assessments are based on initial reports and may be refined, officials said. The task force does not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target.

Since you so haughtily refuse to stop tormenting others..after being repeatedly and often politely asked to back off; and since the forum moderators aren't fixing the problem, perhaps it is time for a conscious group focus of thought by forum readers, to the effect of releasing and reflecting the force of all your bullying, agitating, contention-promoting, hateful, deceitful and dark energy right back at you, into your personal life..multiplied by a factor of 4x? Let's see how you like being overwhelmed by your own Karma..there's no stopping it now, except in repentance.

    LONDON (Reuters) — Iraq has achieved its share of the production cut agreement reached by OPEC and non-OPEC producers at the end of last year but remains ready to meet future oil demand growth, according to a speech by Iraqi oil minister Jabar al-Luaibi on Monday. "Iraq as the second largest producer in OPEC confirms its achievement to the commitment to implement the production cut and has recently announced its readiness to a further extension to the cut agreement," according to the speech which was delivered at an industry event in London by Falah Alamri, head oil marketer SOMO. However, al-Luaibi said, Iraq is ready to meet any growth in the global oil demand "by maintaining production spare capacity, improving export infrastructure and the adoption of modern technology in exploration and production." Members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other producers led by Russia agreed last year to cut oil production by around 1.8 MMbpd mainly to tackle bloated crude inventories and support higher prices. Under the deal, Iraq agreed to cut its oil production by 210,000 bpd. Last week Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said Iraq was in favor of extending the current deal but did not specify for how long. Al-Luaibi had previously said that Iraq would support a six-month extension. Al-Luaibi is due to meet Saudi energy minister Khalid al-Falih in Baghdad on Monday. OPEC minister meet in Vienna on Thursday. Reporting by Ahmad Ghaddar and Julia Payne, editing by Louise Heavens

    Water Management is Key to Sustainable Development and Stability in the Middle East and North AfricaThe importance of water management for sustainable development and stability in the Middle East and North Africa is at the heart of the League of Arab States’ conference on the Sustainable Development Goals which opened in Cairo yesterday. The World Bank Vice President for the Middle East and North Africa, Hafez Ghanem, and the FAO Director-General and Regional Representative for the Near East and North Africa, Abedssalam Ould Ahmed, joined the launch of the Arab Sustainable Development Week to raise awareness of the issue and to discuss the dynamics between water insecurity and fragility, conflict, and violence. In March of this year, the League of Arab States and the World Bank Group signed a Memorandum of Understanding focused on leveraging the comparative advantages of each organization to take a regional approach to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. A ceremony was held today in Cairo with the Secretary General of the League of Arab States, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, to celebrate this MOU. Water security in particular will require a regional approach, as the region’s scarce water resources cross borders and their effective long-term management will depend on increased cooperation among countries. “The FAO, the League of Arab States and the World Bank all share the goal of promoting sustainable, effective and equitable water management in fragile situations – a goal which we believe can contribute to peace, prosperity and stability,” Ghanem said.

    This article was originally published by Niqash. Any opinions expressed are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of*Iraq Business News. The spokesperson for Turkmen political parties in Kirkuk tells NIQASH that his people don’t want to be part of Kurdistan, that they do want a semi-independent region and they hope Turkey will help them with that. As one of Iraq’s smaller ethnic groups, local Turkmen must work hard to make their voices heard at a national level. Nonetheless in northern provinces like Kirkuk, the Turkmen are a more important political voice. In some smaller areas in northern Iraq, the group – who mostly feel closer to those of Turkish ethnicity and who are both Shiite and Sunni Muslim in terms of their sectarian allegiances – make up a majority of the population. In Kirkuk, the Turkmen are represented by the Iraqi Turkmen Front, which is comprised of six Turkmen political parties.*In an interview with NIQASH, Ali Mahdi, the spokesperson for the Turkmen Front, spoke about the group’s aims after the extremist group known as the Islamic State has been driven out of the northern province. Even though the Iraqi Kurdish military, from the nearby semi-autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan, are in charge of security in parts of the province, and even though the Kurdish believe that Kirkuk should be part of their region, the Turkmen disagree. They say that they want to see Kirkuk become its own semi-autonomous region where responsibilities are equally shared between all of the different ethnic and religious groups there. Mahdi discussed how this might happen, what kind of support his people are requesting from Turkey around the issue and his thoughts on the Kurdish flag being raised over official buildings in Kirkuk recently. The governor of Kirkuk, an Iraqi Kurdish politician, raised the Kurdish flag at the end of March this year, sparking protests by local Turkmens as well as debate in the federal Parliament in Baghdad. NIQASH: In many of your recent press statements you have talked about the country’s Turkmen being “targeted” over the past few months. What exactly do you mean by this? Ali Mahdi: Iraq’s Turkmen have not only been targeted physically – and especially in Kirkuk over the past six months – but they have been political targets ever since 2003. They are paying a high price for their political views. Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    It was hard enough coping with flight from conflict-hit areas during the winter months. Now, for the hundreds of thousands of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from Mosul, summer heat is the new challenge. Having survived ISIL, most families are now bracing themselves to battle their second most dangerous enemy – the sizzling sun and the sweltering temperatures that come with it. With temperatures nearing 37° Celsius and rising, the coming months will be trying, according to the UN Migration Agency (IOM) communications officer Hala Jaber, reporting from the Qayara emergency site south of the embattled zone. IOM’s emergency site at the former Qayara airstrip hosts over 52,000 displaced Iraqis or 8,746 families. The scorching heat is already having an impact on both health and living conditions for individuals living at the site. From June onwards, temperatures in Iraq’s Ninewa governorate will hit, and on some days, surpass the 50° mark. The PVC tents that provided residents with much warmth during the cold winter months will be hard to tolerate in summer, as temperatures inside register at least 10° higher than outside. “We are now sleeping outdoors to keep cool,” said Abu Omar, a displaced individual at the site. “It is literally impossible to bear the heat inside the tent.” With the Qayara site at full capacity, IOM teams are in the process of ensuring that all IDP families are equipped with the basic materials that will help alleviate some of the summer’s discomfort. Winter kits that have been modified for hotter days are being prepared for distribution to an estimated 7,790 families, in both Qayara and the neighboring Haj Ali camp. Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com.

    Politics Comey Agrees To Testify Before The Senate Intelligence Committee Updated at 8:19 p.m. ET Former FBI Director James Comey has agreed to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in an open session. "The Committee looks forward to receiving testimony from the former Director on his role in the development of the Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian interference in the 2016 US elections, and I am hopeful that he will clarify for the American people recent events that have been broadly reported in the media," Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., said in a statement released Friday evening. "I hope that former Director Comey's testimony will help answer some of the questions that have arisen since Director Comey was so suddenly dismissed by the President. I also expect that Director Comey will be able to shed light on issues critical to this Committee's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election," said Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va. "Director Comey served his country with honor for many years, and he deserves an opportunity to tell his story. Moreover, the American people deserve an opportunity to hear it." Comey's highly anticipated testimony, which will be slated after the Memorial Day congressional recess, comes after he was fired by Trump May 9 amid a mounting investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election and possible ties between Trump campaign associates and that country. Comey, however, turned down an invitation to testify publicly before the Senate Judiciary Committee as well, which left chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., "extremely disappointed," the lawmakers said in a statement Friday evening. "There is no reason he can't testify before both the Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, particularly given that the Judiciary Committee is the FBI's primary oversight committee with broad jurisdiction over federal law enforcement, FISA and the nomination of the next FBI director," the two senators also said. "Given his commitment to the people and the mission of the FBI, we expected him to be responsive to the senators responsible for vetting its next proposed leader. He should reconsider his decision." While the White House initially pointed to a memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, outlining Comey's mismanagement of the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's private email server, as the impetus for his termination, Trump later admitted that the Russia investigation — which he has called a "hoax" — played a role. Earlier on Friday, the New York Times reported that Trump told Russian officials the day after he fired Comey that the former FBI director was a "nut job" and he had let him go to take off the "great pressure" around the mounting investigation. Earlier this week, NPR confirmed that Trump had asked Comey to scuttle the investigation into his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, according to a memo of the account written by Comey. Trump has denied that ever happened. On Wednesday, Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to take over and continue the Justice Department investigation into Russian election interference and possible links with Trump campaign aides. Can you imagine the amount of information this man will provide?.....I can't wait !! But worry not (ok,ok...Kicki....I should correctly write: "But don't worry".....) I will posting the minutes details of Comey's testimony before the Intel Committee.

    This article was originally published by Niqash. Any opinions expressed are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of*Iraq Business News. A state bank is offering Anbar residents whose homes were damaged in fighting against the Islamic State interest-free loans for reconstruction. Only problem is hardly anyone is eligible to apply. First there was the good news. The provincial government in Anbar province, which has seen much fighting, destruction and death during the security crisis caused by the extremist Islamic State group, announced that the country’s Real Estate Bank had allocated IQD44 billion (around US$36 million) for loans for local reconstruction. The bank, which is state-owned and was set up to facilitate housing projects in the country, would offer the money to ordinary citizens in the area who had suffered damages due to military actions in the form of interest-free loans. Then came the bad news: The loans, ranging from between IQD30 million to IQD50 million (around US$42,000), were difficult to obtain. According to locals, the procedure involved and the conditions for acceptance are so onerous as to be almost impossible. Different sums are given for applicants who live in different parts of the province, whether the centre or districts. Additionally, the interest-free loans are only available to those who can prove officially that they owned property. It is this that causes a lot of problems in Anbar. Ahmad al-Jumaili, a 44-year-old from the Shuhada*area, south of Fallujah, says his hopes were raised by the news. But he quickly realized he didn’t qualify for a loan because he built his house on agricultural property, with the agreement of the owner of the land. It’s a form of subdivision that became popular in the province as prices in inner cities rose and shanty towns started to be built. Land owners saw the potential to divide their agricultural land and offer it to families who wanted to build on the outskirts of the cities. It’s a common but often not well-documented practice.

    By Saad Salloum for Al Monitor. Any opinions here are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News.* Following controversial video leak, Iraq minorities seek to address hate speechIn undated footage that leaked earlier this month, head of the Shiite Endowment Alaa Abd al-Sahib al-Musawi is heard saying that non-Muslims have three options: take up jihad alongside Muslims, convert to Islam, or agree to pay jizyah — a yearly tax historically levied by Islamic states on Christians and Jews. The video sparked outrage on social media. Subsequently, a group of 180 Christian families filed a lawsuit against Musawi, accusing him of spreading hatred against the minorities in the country. Patriarch Mar Louis Raphael I Sako, head of the Chaldean Catholic Church in Iraq, issued a statement on May 5 to contain the anger sparked by the leaked video and*alert religious leaders of their historic responsibility in such critical times in the nation’s history.*He urged the religious leaders to “adopt moderate and open-minded measures as well as ban*hate and discriminatory speech.”*The patriarch clarified that hate speech “does not serve Islam. Rather, it establishes walls among people, divides them, entrenches Islamophobia, dissolves the fabric of the nation, undermines peace, and violates freedom and human rights.” In his statement, Patriarch Sako stressed the important role played by the state,*arguing that the absence of its authority leads to a breakout of destructive hatred: “We hereby call upon the government to enforce the law and*work on respecting the religion of every human being pursuant to the legislation of the graceful Quranic verse that says: ‘So whoever wills,*let him believe; and whoever wills, let him disbelieve.’” As angry reactions emerged, parliamentarians called for reform to integrate the religious endowments in Iraq with a civil administration in order to achieve unity, taking fully into consideration that “the position is held by a secular figure, and whoever is proved to have incited religious dispute or sectarian strife in the country is dismissed,”*according to the statement made May 12 by a representative from the parliamentarian Sadrist Al-Ahrar bloc.
