FROM Philipp Hedemann
Germans Foil Alleged Chemical Attack on US Interests German police today say that they've broken up a plot to launch a string of terrorist bombings against Americans. The suspected terrorists, two Germans and a Turk, were arrested as they prepared to move what the police said was an enormous volume of bomb materials. They also said the men appeared to be linked to al Qaeda. Is homegrown terrorism a growing threat in Europe? Philipp Hedemann reports from Hamburg for Bild Zeitung.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
Who's to blame for the opioid crisis? Some of the lawyers who took on Big Tobacco are now going after Big Pharma. It’s all about the deadly epidemic of opioid use. Are the drug companies to blame? What about the users? Later, on today’s Talking Point: making sense of Britain’s upset election.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
