Take Russia’s role in election seriously

first_img“How could they better gratify this than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?”Although President Trump is uncomfortable with Robert Mueller’s investigation, Russians may indeed have helped in a significant way his becoming president. What really happened needs to be known in order to prevent this problem from recurring.The current Republican campaign to undercut Mueller’s credibility is both disgraceful and dishonest. I doubt the American people are so gullible that they will be taken in by the campaign.More likely, they will surmise that President Trump is guilty of a whole host of illegalities.Howard Littman NiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRussian involvement in our 2016 presidential election is a more serious matter than many realize and needs to be thoroughly investigated, as the special prosecutor is doing.I note that in The Federalist Papers (#68), Alexander Hamilton wrote over 200 years ago, “… the most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.last_img read more

Solskjaer backs Norwegians to shine

first_img Another man expected to complete a move to Cardiff is Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha. The 21-year-old has made just four appearances for the Red Devils this season, one of which came in the Community Shield win over Wigan. A move to Cardiff would allow the England cap to gain regular first-team action, but Solskjaer insisted, contrary to reports, that the player has not had a medical. ”You have to ask Manchester United,” said the Bluebirds boss. ”He is a Manchester United player. I cannot comment about players who are not Cardiff players. Nothing has been concluded. “I can confirm he has not had a medical for Cardiff. I can say that. I don’t know what he has done with other clubs but he has not had a medical with Cardiff.” Press Association Sport understands Cardiff are also close to completing a deal for Wigan defender Ivan Ramis as Solskjaer continues to strengthen his squad with the Bluebirds currently bottom of the Premier League. Wigan manager Uwe Rosler later confirmed Cardiff had had a bid for Ramis accepted, with the defender set to discuss personal terms. “There have been a couple of clubs who met the asking price and we gave Ivan permission to talk to them, that’s all I can say,” said Rosler. “One is well documented. One is Cardiff.” Press Association Solskjaer has already acquired compatriots Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli from Heerenveen and Molde respectively. And striker Jo Inge Berget, 23, will make it a trio of Norwegian signings when he completes his own move from Molde on Friday. The trio all worked with Solskjaer at Molde and all share an agent with the former Manchester United striker. They may not have been the big name signings some Cardiff fans would have hoped for, but Solskjaer has no doubts over the qualities of Eikrem, Daehli and Berget. “We are talking about three full internationals I have brought in for a very cheap price compared to what they give us,” he said. “They are long-term value for money. “Of course the haven’t played in the Premier League but they are all full internationals and I know them because I have had them before. “I know their personalities.” Of Berget, who completed a medical on Thursday, Solskjaer added: “He is a forward, only had four or five months left on his contract so he came on a very good deal for us. “He knows the way I want to play. He is a secondary forward. He is strong, very intelligent and clever and scored against England in the Under-21 European Championships. So he will do well for us.” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident his Norwegian contingent has what it takes to thrive in English football.last_img read more

Lakers showcase how depth is part of team culture during winning trip

first_img How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error In a season that has so far been defined by overwhelming success, there are small, crawling anxieties, the most worrisome of which is how the Lakers play without James. Only Giannis Antetokounmpo has a better plus-minus rating than James: The Lakers have outscored opponents by 345 points when he’s on the floor. When he’s off it, they’ve been outscored by 22.The highlight of the weekend was the utility the Lakers have available when James isn’t available. Against Dallas, they went small to close a key stretch at the end of the third quarter, and against Oklahoma City, the role players played well above the sum of their parts. Can it be sustained in some way?Frank Vogel centered particularly on Kuzma, who showed the scoring prowess that has come in fits and starts this season. There’s been hand-wringing over some of his inconsistent play, which Vogel thought was premature especially since he’s dealt with injury.“A lot of people are trying to create sort of an issue, like, ‘What’s going on with Kuz?’ or ‘Why aren’t we getting more out of Kuz?’ and all that stuff,” he said. “To me, it’s just a matter of time. Everybody just has to be patient, wait, it’s gonna continue to grow. The role’s gonna continue to grow, his comfort level’s gonna continue to grow and you’re gonna see performances like you saw tonight from him.”While Kuzma said that yet another season of renewed trade speculation hasn’t fueled him, he acknowledged he’s felt something to prove: “I’m trying to establish myself.”Related Articles Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThis weekend, the Lakers (32-7) were not playing games. They beat the Mavericks and Thunder, who are both on pace to reach the playoffs, by convincing double-digit margins and leading from start to finish. It’s a feat made more remarkable by who the Lakers had available, missing LeBron James for one and Anthony Davis for both.It was notable that two typical bench players who have felt whiplash from their ups and downs — Kyle Kuzma and Rajon Rondo — were leaders in the back-to-back wins. Kuzma had 62 points in the two games, and Rondo nearly notched a triple-double in the second.While both have admitted they’ve had trouble finding a rhythm in smaller stints, on Friday and Saturday, there was a sense of freedom that comes with playing bigger minutes.“I just know I’m gonna get a lot of opportunities, so just aggressive, and you know that rhythm will be easier to get,” Kuzma said. It’s a little bit easier to get in and take time to find that poise without having to force it.”The challenge now for the Lakers is to give their supporting cast that sense of flow without the starting nod. OKLAHOMA CITY — Before the weekend road trip, the Lakers were feeling a little restless.They were winning, true, but they had not quite looked as crisp as their billing as the top team in the West. In their previous four games against teams with losing records, they won three by 10 points or fewer, then felt that the Knicks tried to shake them with physicality.Dwight Howard said a group thread before the back-to-back swing through Dallas and Oklahoma City shared sentiments that they wanted to get back to being the biggest bullies on the block.“After the last game, the Knicks and the hard foul and stuff like that,” Howard said, “we had some messages going back and forth in the group chat about how we gotta come out and dominate teams and let them know we not playing games.”center_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed He pointed out that applies down the Lakers roster, from James who is trying to win a championship with a third franchise, to Davis who is trying to win a championship at all. The Lakers say they’re all nursing some kind of chip on their shoulder, which has built a sense of unity even among players with wildly different roles.One thing the Lakers talked a lot about over the weekend was the vaunted culture of the San Antonio Spurs, who in their prime could win regular season games with all their stars sitting out. The Lakers see themselves as that kind of team, and players were happy to celebrate productive minutes from Quinn Cook and Troy Daniels after several quiet weeks.Cook called it a point of pride that he can detach his own personal aspirations from the team goals.“You’ve gotta throw yourself into the team,” he said. “Especially on this team, there’s so many guys and everybody can contribute, so if you don’t play, you don’t hold your head down. You don’t feel sorry for yourself, you gotta be consumed with winning.” Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions last_img read more
