'I do hold him responsible': Trump now claims he CONFRONTED Putin on meddling in the 2016 election and repeats his confidence in US intelligence - but REFUSES to call the Russian leader a liar
President Donald Trump is taking a much tougher line on Russian President Vladimir Putin in a new television interview than he did just days ago in Helsinki at Putin's side. Trump said he told Putin directly that 'We can't have any of that' when it comes to Russian interference with the U.S. elections. Asked by CBS anchor Jeff Glor (above with Trump) what he told Putin, Trump responded: 'Very strong on the fact that we can't have meddling, we can't have any of that.' He says he 'let him know we can't have this, we're not going to have it, and that's the way it's going to be.' Trump's tough talk is impossible to verify because the White House said Thursday it was unaware of any recording, and there was no one in the room other than the two men and interpreters.

Shangreaux pleaded guilty to second degree murder in March, and told the court before sentencing the killing was 'one day that went wrong'.

The Fox News host appeared on the program and told Alex Marlow that her ex Gavin Newsom is not the man she remembers marrying back in 2001, just two years before he took office as the Democratic mayor of San Francisco.

Newsom, who is now running for governor of the state of California, also said that President Trump should resign after her referred to Haiti, Ecuador and a number of countries in Africa as 's***hole nations.'

Video of Melania looking horrified after shaking hands with Putin emerges as social media speculates that she is ‘the only one in the room who understands how dangerous this man actually is’
Putin can be seen smiling and nodding in the clip as he is introduced to Melania by President Trump in Helsinki, Finland on Monday. Melania, who is a few inches taller than the ex-spy strongman, also smiles during the handshake in an apparently natural way. But as soon as Putin releases her hand and diverts his attention elsewhere, Melania pulls a bizarre face representing what appears to be her shock or horror. She widens her eyes and wobbles her head as the camera looks directly at her. The video has now gone viral, prompting an outpouring of astonishment and confusion on Twitter. It comes after President Trump sought to clarify comments he made during the press conference with Putin. He was widely attacked for appearing to side with Putin rather than his own intelligence agencies over the Russian state's involvement in hacking the Democratic Party during the 2016 election.

Man, 20, who has spent nine years behind bars after being convicted of shooting dead his father's pregnant fiancée when he was just 11 years old has his conviction OVERTURNED
Pennsylvania's highest court on Wednesday overturned the conviction of a man who was 11-years-old at the time he shot dead his father's pregnant fiancée in 2009. The state Supreme Court's 5-0 ruling clears 20-year-old Jordan Brown of wrongdoing, his lawyers say, in the slaying of 26-year-old Kenzie Houk, who was eight months pregnant when she was found dead in the family's rural western Pennsylvania farmhouse. It reversed a finding by a juvenile court judge in Lawrence County, upheld by a state appellate court, that Brown was guilty of first-degree murder and homicide of an unborn child. The court said prosecutors had not provided enough evidence to support it.
