Adam Schiff because he was angered over the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Salvatore Lippa, 57, of the Rochester suburb of Greece was accused of leaving profanity-laced voice mail threats against the New York senator and California representative, both Democrats.Prosecutors said Lippa left a phone message at Schiff’s Washington, D.C., office on Jan. 23 threatening to “put a bullet” in Schiff’s forehead. Prosecutors said Lippa left a message at Schumer’s Albany, New York, office on Feb. 4 saying, “somebody wants to assassinate you, I’m going to be the driver.”When questioned by U.S. Capitol Police on Feb. 19, Lippa said he made the calls “because he was upset about the impeachment proceedings,” prosecutors said. Lippa was charged with threatening to assault and murder a federal official on account of the performance of their official duties and interstate communication of a threat. The charges carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, or both.Lippa made an initial federal court appearance Wednesday and was released with orders to undergo a mental health evaluation. He’s due back in court on March 23.A message was left for Lippa’s defense attorney seeking comment.

“Based on the footage of the CCTV, wehave found out there was no foul play and during that time 4th class cadet Mario Telan Jr. was with a group of fellow cadets when they jumped in the deeperpart of the pool,” said PMA Public Affairs chief Captain Cherryl Tindog. “Hindi po ito (attendance report) properly nagawa. Hindi po nila na-account, nalaman, na wala po si Cadet Telan noong sila ay umalis ng swimming pool. Naagapan po sana yan kung na-account po properly,” Tindog said in an interview with CNN Philippines. According to Tindog, it is questionable why the class instructors—as well as Telan’s classmates—did not notice that the cadet was not able to come out of the water after the activity. Police saidTelan appeared to have drowned in the campus swimming pool. Tindog, however, said that two swimminginstructors and 21 fellow plebes are undergoing questioning over supposed“irregularities” in the conduct of the military school’s practical examinations. The Philippine Military Academy honors the remains of freshman cadet Mario Telan Jr., who drowned in the 15-feet deep campus swimming pool during his practical exams.

ABS-CBN NEWS Telan’s death comes nearly two months after the fatal hazing of cadet Darwin Dormitorio on Sept. 18./PN “Wala po sa kanila ang nakakakita or nakapansin na hindi na umangat mula sa kanyang pagkakatalon si Cadet Telan na hindi nag-perform ng actual examination – lahat sila ay questioned,” she added. Telan was found in the deep end of the 15-feet campus pool on Friday afternoon. He was immediately rushed to the Fort del Pilar Station Hospital, but was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician.

Daniil Medvedev defeated Novak Djokovic in Monte Carlo.Medvedev lost to Rafael Nadal in the Montreal Masters.Medvedev will face David Goffin in the final of the Cincinnati Masters. For all the Latest Sports News News, Tennis News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Cincinnati: World number one Novak Djokovic wilted under pressure from Daniil Medvedev, falling 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 to the ninth-seeded Russian in the Cincinnati Masters semi-finals. Medvedev’s upset win on Saturday sent him into a title showdown with another unexpected finalist, 16th-seeded Belgian David Goffin, who defeated France’s Richard Gasquet 6-3, 6-4 to reach his first ATP Masters 1000 final. A fuming Djokovic, who looked to have control of the contest in the early going, was caught out when Medvedev stepped things up in the second set. “I don’t know how I turned it around, I was so tired after the first set and I thought I might not be able to keep up the intensity,” said Medvedev, who has competed in 15 hardcourt matches since July 30. “But I had a momentum chance in the second set and the crowd gave me energy,” added the Russian, who will be playing his second Masters series final in eight days, after falling to Rafael Nadal in Montreal last Sunday. “Novak had been destroying me on second serve, so I just went for it,” Medvedev said. “It’s a great feeling to win and beat the number one. That shows I deserve to be in this final. I played an unbelievable match, I’m very happy.” Medvedev also beat Djokovic in their last meeting, on clay at Monte Carlo in April. Djokovic, the defending champion who was playing his first tournament since his Wimbledon triumph in July, shouldered his bag and left the grounds within moments of his defeat. Medvedev won 12 of the last 14 points in the second set to square the match against Djokovic, then ran up a 3-1 lead in the third on the way to victory on his first match point. He’s 1-1 against Goffin, with both of their matches played this season — at the Australian Open and Wimbledon. Kuznetsova beats Barty There was an upset in the women’s draw as well, as Russian veteran Svetlana Kuznetsova defeated top-seeded Australian Ashleigh Barty 6-2, 6-4. Kuznetsova, a two-time Grand Slam champion who has been hindered lately by injury, will be in search of her 19th WTA title — and her first in more than a year — when she takes on American Madison Keys in the final. Keys, the 2017 US Open runner-up, defeated compatriot Sofia Kenin 7-5, 6-4.Kuznetsova denied Barty a chance to reclaim the world number one ranking, which the Australian would have done by reaching the final. Instead the triumph by 34-year-old Kuznetsova leaves injured Naomi Osaka atop the rankings with the US Open starting a week from Monday. Barty, who had rallied from a set down in each of her previous two matches, was off the boil against Kuznetsova, who is back on form after several seasons of injuries, including a wrist problem. “This was a week that I battled through,” Barty said. “At times I played some good stuff. At times I played some pretty awful stuff. I’ve learned a lot from this week, and there are nothing but positives going into New York.” Keys booked her finals spot as she won an all-American match littered with 12 breaks of serve. She earned match points with a flick volley winner angled steeply cross-court and amazed herself with the get. “I looked at my box in shock,” she admitted. “I’m really feeling great about my tennis. When I was down break points in the second set, I was just thinking that I knew I could break back, that was my biggest thought. I’m super-happy to be in my first final here. I love getting matches under my belt before a Grand Slam.” highlights

Lionel Messi has dramatically cut short his holiday in order to hold urgent talks with new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman about his plans to rebuild the crisis-stricken club.Messi’s future at the Nou Camp is far from certain after Barcelona were ruthlessly thrashed 8-2 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week, prompting the departure of Koeman’s predecessor Quique Setien and sporting director Eric Abidal.And according to Mundo Deportivo, Messi is returning from his family holiday in the La Cerdanya area of the Pyrenees to hear Koeman’s plans for himself. Lionel Messi Upon his unveiling as Barcelona manager, Koeman admitted he could have to convince Messi that his future remains with the club where has spent his entire career so far.“I don’t know if I have to convince Messi (to stay),’ he said. ‘He is the best player in the world, and you always want to have him in your team.“On my part, as a coach, I love working with Messi because he wins games. If he performs, I’ll be happy if he wants to stay.“Starting today, I’ll talk to him. We are going to work and talk with several players. In the case of Messi, hopefully he will continue here for more years.“If I say here what I am going to say, it would not be necessary for me to meet with him. I am the coach in order to make decisions.“Once again, he has a year left on his contract. He is the important player you want in your team as a coach.”While Koeman clearly sees Messi as an integral part of Barcelona’s future, there are other mainstays of the current squad who are likely to be told to find a new team.Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic and Jordi Alba are all expected to be moved on by Koeman as he plots a dramatic overhaul after inheriting the ruins of one of the most emphatic defeats in the club’s fabled history.Suarez has been linked with a return to Ajax but it is believed he wants to stay and fight for his place in Spain.In terms of arrivals, Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek – a player Koeman knows well from his time as Holland manager – has been linked with a switch to the Nou Camp in the summer transfer window.Reports in Holland yesterday have also said Koeman is paying attention to Georginio Wijnaldum’s situation at Liverpool.The 29-year-old midfielder, who also played under Koeman for Holland, has a year to go on his Anfield deal and Dutch outlet AD claim the Barcelona boss has told Wijnaldum not to sign a new contract as he lines up a move.But for Barcelona supporters, it is the future of Messi that will be considered key. He has cut a frustrated figure for a while now at the Nou Camp, long before Bayern ripped Barca to shreds.He hit out at ex-boss Setien and the direction he felt the club were drifting in when they surrendered their LaLiga title to fierce rivals Real Madrid this season with a 2-1 defeat at home to Osasuna.“This game represents the entire year. We have been an erratic and weak team,” Messi said in the TV interview, just after the final whistle sounded at an empty Nou Camp.“Madrid did its part by winning all its matches, which is impressive, but we also helped them to win this league. We have to be critical of how we have played, starting with the players, and the rest of the club.“We have lost because of our mistakes and not because of Madrid’s successes, as many say.“The feeling on this team is that it tries, but that it cannot get the job done. Today in the first half they were better than we were and it seems we have to fall behind to react like we tried to do in the second half.”Messi then underlined the importance of Barcelona winning the Champions League and avenging the demons from dramatic defeats in previous seasons ahead of their last-16 tie against Napoli.“Roma, Liverpool… the fans are running out of patience because we’re not giving them anything. If we want to fight for the Champions League, a lot has to change. Like this, we will lose to Napoli,” he said.As it was, they overcame Napoli but Bayern Munich ruthlessly showed just how much work Koeman has on his hands to restore Barcelona to their former glories.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
