Ousted FBI chief James Comey claimed in write-up of dinner with Trump that President asked him to 'LET GO' investigation into National Security Adviser Mike Flynn because 'he's a good guy'
Former FBI director James Comey's written account of his dinner meeting with the President in February describes Trump asking him to close an investigation into disgraced general Mike Flynn. 'I hope you can let this go,' Donald Trump told Mr. Comey, according to a copy of a memo read to a New York Times reporter. Comey reportedly wrote the memo immediately after he met with Trump, as part of an effort to document situations in which the president sought to interfere in the FBI's operations.

Killer whales wage war on great white sharks: Gruesome aftermath of a brutal battle between the predators
A new video shows great white shark carcasses as they wash ashore in Gansbaai, South Africa, with a grisly incision through their gut and only their livers missing. At least three liver-less white shark carcasses have washed up near the popular tourist town this month. Dr Ingrid Visser, who has studied killer whales for nearly 20 years, said orcas use their powerful tails to create strong underwater currents that force the sharks to the surface. 'Once the shark is at the surface, the killer whale pivots and lifts its tail out of the water and comes down on top of it like a karate chop,' she said. This stuns the sharks, leaving them as a still target target for the killer whales' removal of the liver.
