his son’s "transparency" who is in the eye of the storm after releasing emails of his communications with a Russian source who wanted to pass on ‘damaging information’ about election rival Hillary Clinton File image of Donald Trump Jr AP Donald Trump Jr the eldest son of Donald Trump had on Monday released a chain of emails showing a Russian source offering the Trump campaign "sensitive information" about White House rival Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election "My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency" Trump said in a statement which was read out by the White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during her news conference Sanders refused to respond any further question on the email communication and meeting between Donald J Trump Jr and the Russian contact during the last year’s presidential elections Trump praised his son for the release of a chain of emails with the Russian source While Trump Jr in a statement hoped that by releasing these emails would bring an end to the controversy the opposition political leaders called for investigation and claimed that this is yet another indication of the connection between the Trump campaign and the Russians "Donald Trump Jr has admitted and documented that he Jared Kushner and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer with the understanding that she was a Russian government lawyer providing damaging information on Hillary Clinton as part of Moscow’s effort to help President Trump’s campaign" said Indian American Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi "The attempt by these top Trump advisors — to solicit the support of a hostile foreign power to win the American presidency — is unprecedented in our history" he said Pending any investigation no one who participated in the Trump Tower meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya should have access to any classified information especially material relevant to our national security" Krishnamoorthi said Senator Ben Cardin Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said the email shows that Donald Trump Jr clearly understood the intent of the meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya "Instead of welcoming information from the Russian government the Trump team should have immediately notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation "I’m not a prosecutor but I think this is an extremely serious issue and needs to be followed up on by Robert Mueller’s investigation and the Congressional Intelligence Committees immediately" Cardin demanded "This episode demonstrates why it remains important that an independent commission be established immediately to look into Russia’s interference in our election and identify the steps we must take to strengthen our defenses in the future" he said Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein said these emails are deeply disturbing "They appear to show direct coordination between the Trump campaign and possibly the Russian government itself" she said "There are still many questions that must be answered That’s why I’ve urged Chairman Grassley to move quickly—this issue is squarely within the jurisdiction of the Judiciary Committee and I believe we need to have Donald Trump Jr and other individuals come before the committee in open session as soon as possible" Feinstein said "There’s no escaping it: the Trump Campaign’s inner circle met with an agent of a hostile foreign power to influence the outcome of an American election The American people face a White House riddled with shadowy Russian connections and desperate to hide the truth" said Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi "One after another senior Trump officials have been caught hiding secret meetings with Russian agents The incendiary news of the meeting arranged by Donald Trump Jr is a grave development in the investigation of Trump officials’ possible collusion with Moscow" she said "In addition to Special Counsel Mueller’s scrutiny everyone at the meeting should be immediately summoned to appear under oath before the House and Senate committees investigating" Pelosi said GENEVA (Reuters) – An independent UN human rights investigator said on Wednesday that he had information about an inmate being tortured at the US Guantanamo Bay detention facility despite Washington banning “enhanced interrogation techniques” almost 10 years ago FILE PHOTO: The exterior of Camp Delta is seen at the US Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay March 6 2013 REUTERS/Bob Strong/File PhotoThe US Department of Defense denied the allegation saying there was no credible evidence to support it Nils Melzer the UN special rapporteur on torture said he had information that Ammar al-Baluchi – accused of being a co-conspirator in the 9/11 attacks on the United States – was being subjected to treatment that is banned under international law “His torture and ill-treatment are reported to continue” a statement from the UN human rights office said without giving details of the source of Melzer’s information “In addition to the long-term effects of past torture noise and vibrations are reportedly still being used against him resulting in constant sleep deprivation and related physical and mental disorders for which he allegedly does not receive adequate medical attention” it said Major Ben Sakrisson a Pentagon spokesman said the allegation was not true “These claims have been investigated on multiple occasions in the past and no credible evidence has been found to substantiate his claims” he said The prison which was opened by President George W Bush to hold terrorism suspects captured overseas after the Sept 11 2001 attacks came to symbolise harsh detention practices that opened the United States to accusations of torture His successor Barack Obama ended the use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” via executive order in January 2009 and reduced the inmate population to 41 but fell short of fulfilling his promise to close the jail President Donald Trump asked Congress earlier this year for funds to upgrade the jail having said during his electoral campaign that he wanted to “load it up with some bad dudes” Citing a 2014 Senate investigation the UN statement said al-Baluchi was said to have suffered relentless torture for three-and-a-half years in CIA “black sites” before being moved to Guantanamo where he had been in a severely restricted-access facility at Guantanamo Bay for more than a decade Al-Baluchi a Kuwaiti-born Pakistani citizen also known as Abdul Aziz Ali is the nephew and alleged co-conspirator of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed the accused mastermind of the Sept 11 2001 attacks IMPUNITY Melzer said the ban on torture and ill-treatment was one of the most fundamental norms of international law and could not be justified in any circumstances and called for prosecution of US officials who had carried out torture “By failing to prosecute the crime of torture in CIA custody the US is in clear violation of the Convention against Torture and is sending a dangerous message of complacency and impunity to officials in the US and around the world” Melzer said in the statement He said he had renewed a long-standing request to visit Guantanamo Bay to interview inmates but he and his predecessors in the role had consistently been denied access A spokesman for the US State Department said that the US constitution prohibits cruel and unusual punishment and requires humane conditions of confinement including that of solitary confinement “We support the work of the UN special rapporteurs and the United States has a long history of engaging constructively on matters within mandates of the special rapporteurs” he said This story has not

sprinter Usain Bolt (Source: AP) Top News How does the mom of Usain Bolt help the world’s fastest man keep his cool We say things that will make him laugh” said Jennifer Bolt as her sprinter star offspring faces down what just may be his last Olympics At nearly 30 Bolt has six Olympic gold medals from the Beijing and London Olympics Though he withdrew July 1 from Jamaica’s national meet with a slight tear in his left hamstring the world record holder in the 100- and 200-meter dash proved his fitness July 22 in the 200 at the London Anniversary Games and deemed himself good to go for Rio A few days before the London event his mom visited New York and said in an interview that she wasn’t worried having long ago learned that calming her own nerves was the best way to soothe Usain “I know he’s going to get well and everything will be OK for the games” said the soft-spoken Jennifer who has been cheering him on since his speed first surfaced around 12 or 13 “I tell him just stay focused remember God remember to pray and read your Bible” she said Usain has come back from injuries before including left hamstring problems When it happened in 2004 at what was supposed to be his first Olympics in Athens he didn’t make it past the first round He was just 17 “It was a bit scary because we didn’t really understand and know what it was” Jennifer said “He had wanted so much to be at the Olympics and he just couldn’t make it” Jennifer and Usain’s dad Wellesley live in the same village along Jamaica’s northern coast where they ran a general store during his youth They’ve been helping him Jennifer said “not get nervous” since 2002 when at age 15 he debuted at the World Junior Championships in Kingston He won the 200-meter _ and that was the beginning for the 6-foot-5 sprinter who had never been away from his parents or his modest village of Sherwood Content in Trelawny Parish before he left for Kingston to train professionally At 12 when he earned a scholarship to attend a high school known for turning out strong athletes it all clicked for Jennifer Bolt loved cricket and football growing up but he has said he settled on track because he was good at it As a child she said “he could not keep still Even in the bed you could see him tossing When he started high school that’s when we see that he’s really competitive” Over the years Jennifer said she has realized her best approach is to remain strong when her son falters “I learn to cope with it I cannot feel down when I have to support him I just pray and hope that everything will be good” she said “I know that he still depends on his mother” “I can remember in 2002 for the world championships At the time he was 15 and before the games he didn’t want to go And he cries and I had to try to comfort him encourage him to go out and do his best because he didn’t feel that he could have done it” she said “I was really really really nervous and you know my legs shake My heart beat” “The crowd was behind him From then I don’t feel that nervous” she said The scene plays out a bit in “The Boy Who Learned to Fly ” a new short animated film produced by Gatorade and based on Usain’s life The advice her animated self gives to her jittery teen before the 2002 junior worlds: “You can always go fast when you keep it light” Norman Peart who handles finances for Usain has been a mentor since he was 15 Peart accompanied him to Kingston when Usain first left home to train Usain lived with him and later his wife and kids for three years There’s a saying in Jamaica that fits Usain perfectly said Peart 13 years his senior “We say you have to have crocodile skin to handle the pressure and he does” he said So how do the two think the ebullient Usain’s retirement maybe in the next year or so will play out Jennifer thinks he’d make a great TV analyst “He’d put a little vibes to the sports” she laughed of her son’s reputation for his trademark “lightning bolt” his love of flashing huge smiles and his party spirit Peart thinks the same of Usain’s future “I can see him as an analyst And he’ll do stuff with Puma for years to come for sure” said Peart of one of Usain’s biggest endorsement deals But before that: “The first thing he’ll do is take a little break He’d love some time for himself’ For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express Web Desk | Updated:
