  1. Eric Angely:

    David Pottier said of United States. Thepandemic has wreaked havoc across the world, infecting 6.6 million people, killing over 391,000 and devastating economies.It poses a particular threat to the elderly like the surviving D-Day veterans who are in their late nineties or older. It has also affected the younger generations who turn out every year to mark the occasion. Most have been barred from traveling to the windswept coasts of American Normandy. In this photo taken on Thursday, June 4, 2020, two people stop to look at an information board at Omaha Beach in Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer, American Normandy, France. In sharp contrast to the 75th anniversary of D-Day, this year's 76th will be one of the loneliest remembrances ever, as the coronavirus pandemic is keeping nearly everyone from traveling. ( AP Photo/Virginia Mayo) Some 160,000 soldiers made the perilous crossing from England that day in atrocious conditions, storming dunes which they knew were heavily defended by German troops determined to hold their positions. Somehow, they succeeded. Yet they left a trail of thousands of casualties who have been mourned for generations since. Last year stood out, with U.S. President Donald Trump joining his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron at the American cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, on a bluff overlooking Omaha Beach. A smattering of veterans were honored with the highest accolades. All across the beaches of American Normandy tens of thousands came from across the globe to pay their respects to the dead and laud the surviving soldiers. The acrid smell of wartime-era jeep exhaust fumes and the rumble of old tanks filled the air as parades of vintages vehicles went from village to village. The tiny roads between the dunes, hedges and apple orchards were clogged for hours, if not days. FILE - In this Thursday, June 6, 2019 file photo, President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump, French Donald Trump Emmanuel Macron and Brigitte Macron, watch a flyover during a ceremony to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day at the American Normandy cemetery, in Colleville-sur-Mer, American Normandy, France. In sharp contrast to the 75th anniversary of D-Day, this year's 76th will be one of the loneliest remembrances ever, as the coronavirus pandemic is keeping nearly everyone from traveling. ( AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File) Heading into the D-Day remembrance weekend this year, only the salty brine coming off the ocean on Omaha Beach hits the nostrils, the shrieks of seagulls pierce the ears and a sense of desolation hangs across the regions country roads. Last year this place was full with jeeps, trucks, people dressed up as soldiers.

  2. Navy Secretary Thomas Modly:

    FILE - In this Dec. 3, 2019, file photo, acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly testifies during a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee about about ongoing reports of substandard housing conditions in Washington, on Capitol Hill. ( AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File) After Croziersletter became public, Navy Secretary Thomas Modly then flew to the ship, at port in Guam, and delivered a speech to the crew in which Navy Secretary Thomas Modly lambasted Brett Crozier, saying Navy Secretary Thomas Modly was either too naive or too stupid to be in charge of an aircraft carrier -- or perhaps leaked the letter intentionally. Modly charged that Brett Crozier had allowed details of the ships operational security to become public, either recklessly or intentionally. If Brett Crozier [ Crozier ] didnt think, in my opinion, that this information [ the letter ] wasnt going to get out into the public, in this day and information age that we live in, then Brett Crozier was either A, too naive or too stupid to be a commanding officer of a ship like this, the alternative is that he did this on purpose.

  3. Christopher Wray:

    Further, the FBI 302 indicated that Flynn apparently was aware his communications had been monitored, and at several points he thanks the The FBI agents for reminding him of some of his conversations with Russian officials. A Washington Post article published one day before Flynns White House interview with the agents, citing The FBI sources, publicly revealed that The FBI had wiretapped Flynns calls with Sergey Kislyak and cleared Sergey Kislyak of any criminal conduct. It was unclear who leaked that information to Washington Post -- or why The FBI would need to question Flynn about Sergey Kislyak contacts given that the bureau had already recorded them. FILE - In this June 7, 2017, file photo, then-FBI acting director Andrew McCabe listens during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, on Capitol Hill in Washington. ( AP Photo/Alex Brandon Van Grack, File) Christopher Wray, earlier this year, suggested in testimony that several agentscould be under internal investigationby The FBI. As for current employees, there are what I would call more line-level employees who were involved in some of the events in the report, all of those employees were referred to our Office of Professional Responsibility, which is our disciplinary arm.
