Russian general ID'd ordering actions before downing of Malaysian passenger jet

MOSCOW - A semi-retired Russian three-star general oversaw the cross-border movements of a rocket launcher used to bring down a passenger jet in 2014 over eastern Ukraine, killing all aboard, an investigation by a team of reporting outlets has found.

The reporting team, made up of McClatchy and investigative websites Bellingcat (based in London) and The Insider (based in Moscow), identifies the general as Nikolai Fedorovich Tkachev.

His identification is potentially a breakthrough in a case that has frustrated Dutch and other investigators who have struggled for years to identify voices on a key phone intercept. They may now be closer to decoding the chain of command that brought down the unsuspecting Malaysia Air Flight 17 traveling above 30,000 feet.

In the intercept, a commander is heard giving orders and talking with junior officers; they appear to be discussing equipment associated with a missile launcher and used to move it.

Mass. cop mocks Charlottesville car ramming on Facebook: 'Hahahaha love this'

A police officer in Springfield, Mass., is backpedaling after facing criticism over online comments in response to a counter-protestor’s death during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., on Sunday.

Conrad Lariviere apologized for making "a stupid comment about people blocking streets" on Facebook during an online exchange with a MassLive reporter.

"Never would I want someone to get murdered. I am not a racist and I don't believe in what any of the protesters are doing," he said. "I'm a good man who made a stupid comment and would just like to be left alone."

Lariviere's apology has done little to quell public outrage over his initial comments, in which he pointed fingers at car ramming victims rather than driver James A. Fields, Jr.

No one answering the phones at the WH

By Brian Stelter and the CNNMoney Media team.

Is Trump the only person speaking for Trump right now?

This is the low point of the Trump presidency to date. And President Trump does not have many admin officials or Republican lawmakers publicly defending him. I'm left wondering: will we see more angry tweets from POTUS this weekend?

At the moment, the White House doesn't seem to be providing any spokespeople for the Sunday shows. "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace saId Friday morning: "We can't even reach anybody" at the White House — "they're not available, they're not answering the phone."

But Trump will be representing himself this weekend... through an interview with one of his biggest fans at Fox, Jeanine Pirro... clips were released on Friday, and the interview will air Saturday night...

Lawmaker: 'I got confirmation' my Russia-Ukraine plan was delivered to White House...

Source: Business Insider

The Ukrainian lawmaker who met with President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and businessman Felix Sater in New York last month to discuss a controversial peace plan for Ukraine "got confirmation" from Sater that his plan was delivered to the White House, he told Business Insider.

Andrey Artemenko, a member of Ukrainian parliament and former member of the country's far-right Radical Party, said he met with Cohen and Sater at the Loews Regency New York on January 27 to discuss Artemenko's proposal for solving the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

The meeting was organized by Sater, who knew Cohen through his work with the Trump Organization and was introduced to Artemenko by a mutual friend named Yan Aronov, Artemenko said. (Aronov did not respond to a request for comment.) The plan they discussed involved lifting sanctions on Russia and allowing Moscow to lease Crimea for either 50 or 100 years, he said. In return, Russia would have to withdraw its support for separatists in eastern Ukraine.

Controversy erupted earlier this month after The New York Times reported that Cohen said he had "hand-delivered" the plan in a sealed envelope to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn before Flynn was forced to resign over a separate Russia-related firestorm. Cohen's initial account largely aligned with what Artemenko and Sater said Cohen told them he would do after their meeting.
