Another White House Official Denies Trump Wanted To Axe Mueller
Sessions had no choice in removing himself, but the panicked president began planning to dispose of his attorney general. Since then, Mueller has indicted or secured guilty pleas from four former Trump insiders for a variety of crimes.

The reports came as Afghanistan's government has declared a day of mourning for January 28, after a bomb attack claimed by the Taliban in the capital killed 103 people on the afternoon of January 27. The security forces have shut down the area of the shootout.

Armed militants launched the assault on the entrance to the academy around 5am local time, TOLO News reports citing eyewitnesses and a source inside the camp.

No casualty has been reported so far. Earlier this month, Taliban attacked a hotel in Kabul and killed 22 people, a lot of them foreigners.
