New Mueller probe revelations explain Trump’s rage

President Donald Trump looks — and is acting — rattled and encircled by the Russia investigation. And a series of fresh d

isclosures on Tuesday show there is every reason for him to feel threatened by the vast shadow it is casting over his life, business and presidency.

Newly unsealed court documents detailing special counsel Robert Mueller’s activity reveal an investigative field

of breathtaking scope and a prosecutorial machine that ratcheted quickly up in mid-2017.

The search warrants targeting Trump’s ex-personal lawyer Michael Cohen offer a glimpse of the covert world of the probe. As

is often the case with Mueller, they give only a tantalizing hint of the wider, yet still hidden, puzzle.

In court filing, Robert Mueller’s team says it’s very busy this week

But such disclosures are almost never good news for Trump.

There is enough to explain from Tuesday’s reveal why the in

vestigation must be weighing on Trump’s spirits, and driving his angry Twitter outbursts.

The vast breadth of the investigation by various jurisdictions also could offer a rich seam for Democratic House chair

en should they eventually subpoena primary evidence uncovered by Mueller and other prosecutors.

Trump weighs in on Conways’ marriage in escalation of feud

President Donald Trump escalated his public feud with the spouse of a top adviser Wednesda

y, attacking counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway’s husband George as “jealous” and a “husband from hell.”

“George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that

I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted,” Trump tweeted, referring to a post at the Justi

ce Department. Conway, a conservative lawyer, withdrew from consideration for the role early in Trump’s presidency.

Trump continued, “I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”

Wednesday’s tweet marks the first time Trump has publicly weighed in on the Conways’ marriage. While George Conway has

long been critical of Trump, attacks between the two ratcheted up this week when Conway questioned Trump’s men

tal health, tweeting screengrabs of the medical definitions of narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial pers

onality disorder from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

“*All* Americans should be thinking seriously *now* about Trump’s mental condition and psychological state, inclu

ding and especially the media, Congress—and the Vice President and Cabinet,” he wrote Monday.

A $50 million rescue and rebuild mission is now underway to

repair roads, bridges, schools, communication lines and provide healthcare to

those affected. The country is in poor shape to withstand the financial impact of a disaster: Zimbabwe is cur

rently in the grip of a deep economic crisis.
The Zimbabwe Information Ministry shared pictures of some pupils who had been res

cued from a boarding school in Chimanimani District, one of the worst-affected areas in the east of the country. Br

idges were swept away, and power and communication lines in the area have been cut off.

The brotherly bailout is striking because Mukesh Ambani pla

  yed a part in bringing his younger brother’s business to the brink of collapse.

  The Mumbai billionaire stunned India in September 2016 when he launched a ne

w mobile network called Reliance Jio that offered customers six months of free high-speed internet.

  The move triggered a brutal price war, forcing some companies to quit the market altogether, including Reliance Communications.

  Indian billionaire turns to bankruptcy court after losing 4G price war with his brother

  Anil Ambani’s company, once one of India’s biggest mobile pl

ayers, announced in late 2017 that it would sell its main consumer mobile business to Reli

ance Jio in order to focus on providing data services to corporate clients.

  That deal has now been abandoned, the two companies said Monday. An Indian bankruptcy court will instead auct

ion off Reliance Communications’ mobile assets to pay off the company’s $7 billion debt.

  The Ambani brothers have had a tumultuous and often acrim

onious relationship. After the death of their father in 2002, they waged a bitter succe

ssion battle for control of the vast Reliance business empire that he had spent decades building.

In the fall, Musk agreed to a court-approved deal with the SEC in

  r to settle charges over his controversial tweet in August about his plans to take Tesla private. The settlem

ent stipulated that Musk receive pre-approval for any social media posts containing information that is “material” to Te

sla shareholders. At the time, the electric carmaker said it would establish a board committee to oversee its CEO’s posts.

  But the SEC has since found fault with Musk’s tweeting. In late February, the commissi

on filed a motion asking a federal judge to hold Musk in contempt for violating the terms of the settlement.

  The SEC cited a tweet from February 19 in which Musk said Tesla

would build 500,000 cars in 2019. He then tweeted a clarifying message that Tesla would be build

ing at an annual rate of 500,000 cars by the end of the year, but would actually only make 400,000 cars in 2019.

  Musk fired back last week, arguing that the tweet didn’t contain material information about Tesla, that he diligent

ly tried to follow the court settlement, and that the SEC’s request is a breach of his constitutional right to free speech.

The pre-approval requirement was designed to protect agai

  nst reckless conduct by Musk going forward,” the agency said. “It is therefore stunning to learn that, at the time of fil

ing of the [contempt] motion, Musk had not sought pre-approval for a single one of the nume

rous tweets about Tesla he published in the months since the court-ordered pre-approval policy went into effect.”

  Musk is interpreting the settlement “as not requiring pre-approval unless Musk himself unil

aterally decides his planned tweets are material,” the agency said, adding that such an approach is “inco

nsistent with the plain terms” of the settlement and makes the pre-approval requirement “meaningless.”

  The SEC also said that Musk has “made no diligent or good faith effort to comply with the pre-approval provision of the court’s order.”

  And it dismissed the Tesla CEO’s argument that his First Amendment rights are being

violated because needing pre-approval for his tweets does not mean “that he is prohibited from speaking.”

  Lawyers representing Musk responded with a court filing seeking permission to a

ddress “unsupported assertions” made by the SEC and to submit documentation that “un

dermines” the regulator’s position. Tesla didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

This may sound catastrophic, but images being sharedf Decembe

  ’s fireball are actually quite poetic in scale. This atomic, otherworldly force appears as a simple red blip above the clouds.

  Some colour views of the #meteor that flew over the North Pacific in December 2018, taken by Japan’s #Himawari satellite.

  The meteor is really clear here – bright orange fireball against the blue + white background!

  But you likely didn’t know about it until now, because scientists only just noticed it.

That’s because the area where the fireball exploded, over the Bering Sea, is extremely remote.

  NASA’s Planetary Defense Officer Lindley Johnson told the BBC s

uch a powerful meteor event only happens a few times every 100 years. (As a side no

te, “Planetary Defense Officer” is probably as close to a real-life “Avengers” title as you’re gonna get.)

  CNN has reached out to NASA for additional comment.

  In case you’re not uneasy enough about the reality that flaming extraterr

estrial objects are continuously pelting our fragile planet, they do so with alarming regularity.

  NASA keeps track of most of the notable fireballs and bolides (a similar astronomical term) that reach Earth. So far in

2019, there have already been five notable fireball events. Don’t worry, though! Most are super tiny.

  And if the big one ever comes along to make dinosaurs of us all, NASA’s Planetary Defense Office has our backs.

Apple on Monday quietly announced new versions of the

  Pad Air and iPad mini, the company’s first refresh for those products in years.

  Typically Apple (AAPL) creates fanfare around the arrival of new hardware. But this year it wants the focus of its upcoming spring press event to be on

its rumored streaming service. That’s why the company let the world know about its new iPads in a press release.

  The iPad Air comes with a bigger 10.5-inch display (starting at $499), and the iPad mini has

the same 7.9-inch screen (starting at $399). The devices support the Apple Pencil for the first time and

a processor that’s three times faster than the previous models.The iPad mini will mostly serve as an entertainment devi

ce, likely to attract students and teenagers, while the lightweight iPad Air replaces the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

  The iPads don’t offer any revolutionary experiences and probably won’t move the

needle too much in terms of sales. However, they may appeal to consumers looking to adopt some of the fun

ctionality of a higher-end iPad Pro, according to Ben Stanton, a senior analyst at Canalys.

tudents sleep at noon in the classroom, in East China’s Anhui prov

More than 60 percent of children and teens do not get adequate sleep, which can put their health at risk, according to a repor

t released on Sunday by the Chinese Sleep Research Society, ahead of the World Sleep Day that falls on March 21.

Nearly 63 percent of Chinese youths ages 6 to 17 sleep less than eight hours a day, acco

rding to the report. Among 13- to 17-year-olds the figure is more than 81 percent.

The report was based on a survey at the end of last year and in January. It covered nea

rly 70,000 children and teens ages 6 to 17 across the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.

The report found that the heavy school homework load and the popu

larization of electronic devices were the two top causes for the inadequate sleep. From Mon

day to Thursday, 8.4 percent of the group would still be busy with their homework after 11 pm.

Major world social media including Facebook, Googl

  and Twitter are working hard to take down posts containing graphic footage of terror attacks on two mosques in Christchurch Friday.

  One of the shooters appeared to have live-streamed the attacks on Facebook that pur

portedly showed a gunman walking into a mosque and opening fire on the prayers.

  The account of the shooter has now been removed from Facebook, and many other pos

ts that had originally shared the footage have also disappeared from the platform.

  Mia Garlick of Facebook’s New Zealand office said in a statement to American internet media BuzzFeed journa

list Ryan Mac that the company is working to block the shooting video from spreading in the Facebook community.

  Twitter also pulled down the original video and suspended the account that shared it on

its platform, saying the user had violated its policies banning graphic, hate or terror content.

  YouTube stated on its Twitter account that it was working vigilantly to suspend any violent footage.
