Getting to Know the Lithuanian Beer Scene The Most Unique Collaboration Beers in the U.S. Editors’ Recommendations The Best Fresh Hop Beers to Celebrate the Hop Harvest The McMenamins Effect: How 2 Brothers Helped Start Beervana The act of brewing beer is tightly intertwined with the history of man. As civilizations grew, so did the sophistication of brewing techniques. From accidental open fermentations in ancient Mesopotamia to the regimented brewing practices of Belgian monks and on through the industrialized, computer-aided modern age, beer reflects our needs and abilities as a people. The beer style known as India Pale Ale, or IPA for short, has its own distinct history and origin. Lore states that, as the British Empire expanded further east into India, they found the climate unsuitable for brewing the country’s traditional ales. As a precaution to keep the beer flavorful during the months-long journey from England to India, the beer was treated to an abundance of hops, far more than the typical recipe would allow. This new bitter ale was a hit, and eventually the beer became lighter and easier to drink while still packing that hop punch.Spanish Trampoline IPA, Green Flash Brewing/FacebookAs the American craft beer scene blossomed in the 1980s and 1990s, this new wave of breweries sought to redefine traditional European styles, including the IPA. Over time, American IPAs evolved into their own subgroups. One of the most popular IPA styles in recent years is referred to as the West Coast IPA.West Coast IPAs are notable for their big tropical and citrus fruit aromas. The malt base is relatively mild, giving those bright fruit notes prime billing and expanding from the smell into the flavor. There is no balance here — West Coast IPAs are all about the hops. The mouthfeel is light to moderate and the finish is crisp and dry. The slightly aggressive alcohol percentage (6-8 percent) is masked by the orange, pineapple, and papaya flavors, often suggested by the hops.Delicious IPA, Stone Brewing/FacebookExamples include Migration Brewing’s Straight Outta Portland IPA (Portland, Oregon); Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Elder (Santa Rosa, California); the Green Flash Brewing Co. West Coast IPA (San Diego, California and Virginia Beach, Virginia); and Stone Brewing’s Stone IPA (Escondido, California). While all of those beers are in fact brewed on the West Coast, a brewery does not have to be located in Washington, Oregon, or California in order to produce a West Coast-style IPA. The popularity of this flavor profile means there is probably a West Coast IPA being cooked up at a brewery near you. Why Tea and Beer Go Well Together (and 5 Tea Beers to Try)

The Maritime Authority of Jamaica (MAJ) plans to institute a flag weather warning system with accompanying signs at seaport departure points, to provide vessels with alerts on storm and wind conditions.This was disclosed at a town hall meeting for small passenger vessel operators held at Fort Charles, Port Royal, on January 17.The sensitisation meeting was held in the wake of the marine casualty that occurred on December 27, 2018, in the Lime Cay basin, which resulted in the death of two persons.In his address, Director General of the Maritime Authority of Jamaica, Rear Admiral Peter Brady, urged the operators to adhere to the safety requirements found in the Shipping Act and the Harbour Rules.He also stressed that passengers should be properly briefed by boat operators, before going out to sea.“You [also] make sure that they put on the life jackets and not only put them on, but that they are fitted. You have to say to them in the event that we encounter bad weather, you follow my instructions and these are things that we do… and you list what you are going to do,” he pointed out.“Those of you who want to engage in carrying paying passengers, you have to come to the Maritime Authority for us to properly certify you and give you the right instructions for the people you carry. Make sure you carry the right equipment,” Rear Admiral Brady added.Vessel operators were also encouraged to ensure that their boats are in proper working condition.At the event, presentations were also made by Safety Director at the MAJ, Steven Spence; and Licence Processing Manager at the Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo), Sheryll Lewis.The Maritime Authority of Jamaica is responsible for the development of shipping in Jamaica and to regulate matters related to merchant shipping and seafarers.The MAJ is also responsible for the regulation of safety, security and marine environment protection; and for discharging Jamaica’s Treaty obligations in relation to the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

The Canadian PressA military spokesperson says five men who appear in a filmed confrontation at an Indigenous ceremony in Halifax are members of the Canadian Armed Forces.The incident took place at a spiritual event honouring the suffering of Indigenous Peoples on Canada Day.The video shows five men clad in black and yellow shirts — one carrying a Red Ensign flag bearing the Union Jack in the corner — interacting with spectators at the ceremony.In the video, one of the spectators appears to be holding an upside-down Canadian flag, leading to an exchange about the country’s history.National Defence spokesman Daniel LeBouthillier has confirmed that five Forces members are involved in the incident, at least two of whom belong to the Navy.Commanders of the Canadian Army and Navy released a joint statement Monday saying that the chain of command “takes action” when it learns that a member’s conduct is not in keeping with military code.Vice-Admiral Ron Lloyd and Lt.-Gen. Paul Wynnyk said in a Facebook post that leadership’s actions will not be shared on social media unless it required.
Companies in this story: (TSX: BMO)The Canadian Press TORONTO — BMO Financial Group’s third-quarter profit rose by one per cent, but missed expectations as growth in its capital markets division was offset by lower earnings in wealth management and higher provisions for credit losses.The Toronto-based bank says it earned $1.56 billion during the quarter ended July 31, up slightly from $1.54 billion during the same period last year.BMO’s quarterly profit amounted to $2.34 per diluted share, compared with $2.31 in its third quarter of 2018.On an adjusted basis, BMO says it earned $1.58 billion or $2.38 per share, compared with $1.57 billion or $2.36 per share a year ago.Analysts had expected the bank to earn $2.49 per share, according to the financial markets data firm Refinitiv.BMO’s chief executive Darryl White says the bank delivered “strong” operating results during the quarter, demonstrating the resilience of the lender’s diversified North American platform.“Our Canadian and U.S. personal and commercial banking businesses together delivered nine per cent growth in pre-provision pre-tax profit contribution with good balance momentum,” he said in a statement.“Capital markets continues to perform well, with record revenue in investment and corporate banking. While provisions for credit losses increased this quarter from very low levels, overall credit quality remains strong.”
Responding to press questions, Fred Eckhard said the 15 January date mentioned by Secretary-General Kofi Annan at a recent press conference “may not be most convenient for the members of the Governing Council” so other possibilities are being examined.The Spokesman went on to add that the Secretary-General’s preference would be to hold a trilateral meeting but, if a suitable date cannot be found, sequential meetings could achieve the same results.

We are genuinely happy for Yulia Skripal and wish her a further recovery and rehabilitation. We pay tribute to the professionalism of NHS staff. At the same time, media reports that Yulia has left hospital for a “secure location” cause concern. Read: https://t.co/HLuV8SgXj1 pic.twitter.com/IqisXZlyGv— Russian Embassy, UK (@RussianEmbassy) April 10, 2018 The embassy followed this up with another request to see Ms Skripal, claiming Britain was “continuing its policy of isolating her from the public, concealing important evidence and blocking an impartial and independent investigation.” British officials have said it would make little sense to allow them access to the pair, given the suspected culpability. Sergei Skripal, is still recovering in Salisbury District Hospital. Yesterday in a statement hospital medical director Dr Christine Blanchard said: “Although (Sergei) is recovering more slowly, we hope that he too will be able to leave hospital in due course.” Dr Blanchard said that both had responded “exceptionally well” to treatment but had suffered “hallucinations and confusion” since emerging from comas.Because the long-term effects of novichok are not well understood, the Skripals are expected to continue to receive medical care for some time following their discharge.

Yulia Skripal has reportedly refused assistance from the Russians since waking up in hospital, as her home country claims Britain has “abducted” her.The daughter of Sergei Skripal, a Russian double agent spent weeks in a critical condition after being poisoned with nerve agent novichok, which is thought to have been smeared on the front door of Mr Skripal’s Salisbury home.The 33-year-old was taken to a ‘safe house’ on Monday after being discharged, and according to The Times has refused consular assistance from the Russian Embassy.After her release, the embassy tweeted: “We congratulate Yulia Skripal on her recovery.”Yet we need urgent proof that what is being done to her is done on her own free will. Secret resettlement of Mr and Ms Skripal, barred from any contact with their family, will be seen as an abduction or at least as their forced isolation.” She added that Yulia Skripal’s treatment is not yet over, but that her release marks a “significant milestone.”

Why John Lithgow Worried About Starring in Broadway’s ‘Hillary and Clinton’ President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton are jumping on the podcasting bandwagon.The former U.S. president and his daughter, who is vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, launched a new podcast, “Why Am I Telling You This?” The series will feature conversations with President Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Clinton Foundation staff, partners and special guests — and, according to the foundation, explain why we should be optimistic about the future.The podcast will share stories about the “people, issues and events that have shaped our work and our world,” Chelsea Clinton says in the “Why Am I Telling You This?” teaser clip.Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State under President Obama and 2016 U.S. presidential candidate, isn’t formally participating in the podcast but she may make an appearance in future episodes, according to the Clinton Foundation. Popular on Variety TV Review: ‘The Clinton Affair’ The podcast is a co-production of the Clinton Foundation and At Will Media. It will be published without any ads, available for free starting Thursday, May 2, on Apple Podcasts (at this link) with distribution on other podcast platforms in the coming weeks.The series will cover issues related to the Clinton Foundation’s work such as the ongoing hurricane recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the greater Caribbean region; how to combat climate change and the opioid crisis; and new ways to improve early childhood literacy. It also will feature discussions “on global leadership, reflections on the Clinton Administration, and President Clinton’s wide range of interests and well-known intellectual curiosity,” according to the foundation’s announcement.President Clinton, a two-time Grammy Award winner for spoken word album, was the first presidential candidate to participate in televised town halls with MTV and interactive online forums. He also has teamed with the entertainment industry to advance the Clinton Foundation’s early-childhood literacy efforts and to produce a virtual reality movie taking audiences inside the foundation’s rural development work in Africa. “Growing up in Arkansas just after World War II in a family that didn’t have a lot of money, most of our entertainment revolved around storytelling. Listening to my relatives and neighbors tell stories showed me that everyone has a story, and that everyone’s story has value,” Bill Clinton says in the introduction to the series. “When I got into politics, I always thought that the main point of my work was to give people a chance to have better stories. And after I left office, that’s the same purpose that led me to start the Clinton Foundation.” Related ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

KOLKATA: A sleaze racket has been busted by the city police on Thursday night and as many as 11 persons including some women have been arrested for their alleged involvement.Acting on a tip-off, the Anti-Women Trafficking department of the city police raided an apartment under Karaya police station and arrested the accused. The sleaze racket was operating in the guise of Spa centre. Among the arrested, there were some sex workers, a woman manager of the Spa, some touts and customers. Police had received a complaint from locals saying certain ‘illegal’ activities were taking place inside the Spa for quite some time. On the basis of the information, police raided it on Thursday night. They are trying to know the names of others involved in the racket. Some of the policemen went to the flat and caught the accused. Police have started a case under the Immoral Trafficking Act. They are conducting raids to nab the other culprits. Locals informed police that people used to visit the place throughout the day. Initially, they thought it to be a Spa centre operating at the apartment and could never realise that a sleaze racket was active. However, locals smelled a rat and reported the matter to the local police. During the preliminary investigation police came to know that the manager used to operate the sleaze racket. A detailed probe has been initiated in this regard. Cops have also come to know that the sex workers who have been arrested, aged between 21 and 27, used to visit the Spa on a regular basis. They are being interrogated in detail.
Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 5 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. For the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the U.S. has Las Vegas. For blockchain technology and sweet new startups, Malta, aka “Blockchain Island,” has the DELTA Summit. So in a sense, the DELTA Summit has become the CES of blockchain technology.Malta has become the tropical breeding grounds for technologically innovative blockchain startups. This year has been the year of regulatory exploration. Whether we are talking about the U.S. or international authorities, the entire cryptocurrency community, as well as the blockchain technology enthusiasts, have all wanted the answer to one question — How can we do this without getting in trouble?Related: Entrepreneurs Are Flocking to Europe to Open Cryptocurrency BusinessesDubbed “Blockchain Island” for a reason, Malta, in its allowance of newly-innovative projects to establish themselves on the island, wants to show the rest of the world how it can lead, especially when it comes to regulation.The DELTA Summit.Earlier this month, Malta held its blockchain conference, DELTA Summit, attracting more than 3,500 industry experts and government officials. The Summit operates as a platform for investors and experts to share their experience and opinions, specifically on the controversially debated issue of regulation, with fellow entrepreneurs and investors of all ages.Congress speaks out.Blockchain and cryptocurrency has sneaked up on all of us and has shot into the kind of relevance that many are calling long-term. The result is that it isn’t just crypto-enthusiasts that are asking for guidance in the regulatory framework anymore, Congress is speaking out as well.Last month, more than a dozen members of the U.S. House of Representatives sent a letter to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Jay Clayton, urging him and the agency to provide clear guidance to investors on how it plans to regulate cryptocurrency.Since the 1946 U.S. Supreme Court decision SEC v. W.J. Howey Co., the Howey Test has been used for clarifying whether or not an asset was considered to be a “security” versus a “commodity.”Under Howey, the Court held that a transaction is an investment contract, or security, if “a person invests his money in a common enterprise and is led to expect profits solely from the efforts of the promoter or a third party.”Currently, the SEC believes U.S. Securities law to be guidance in itself for this newly created digital asset class. While Bitcoin and Ether have both been declared “commodities” by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), all other assets are currently regulated under the Howey Test.The SEC, prior to the recently received Congressional letter, has made it clear that there would be no exceptions to U.S. Securities law made for cryptocurrencies.Related: What It’s Actually Like to Work at a Crypto Startup“We are not going to do any violence to the traditional definition of a security that has worked for a long time,” Clayton said in a previous CNBC interview. “If you have an ICO or a stock, and you want to sell it in a private placement, follow the private placement rules. But, if you want to do any IPO with a token, come see us.”In Clayton’s eyes, the U.S. has already built a $19 trillion securities market that the world looks to for guidance, but according to investors and crypto-enthusiasts, this isn’t so cut and dry, and if there isn’t clear guidance, innovation could be driven elsewhere, overseas perhaps.From AngelList to straight up compliance.The U.S. has previously passed legislation allowing for the creation of companies such as AngelList, Kickstarter and Indiegogo. As we have seen, new companies like the AngelList spinoff, Republic, has taken shape, redefining the bounds of regulation.Back to the DELTA Summit, it was extremely exciting for the sponsored companies like Binance, OKEx and ABCC aim to be a regulatory model for their own demographic. After the Summit concluded, ABCC’s CEO, Calvin Cheng, spoke about what it takes to be a leader in this space and what they had done to make it into the Top 5 category of mobile applications in the Google Play Store. “What distinguishes our exchange from similar ones is our team and commitment to long term sustainability,” he said.Cheng said that in a year full of data breaches like Equifax and Facebook, they have begun to jump on board with various insurance companies, looking at readily available “cyber-insurance” policies which the space has been lacking for quite some time.Related: Why Entrepreneurs Shouldn’t Panic About the Bitcoin SlumpThis highlights another problem that the blockchain space has faced. Sure blockchain is getting hotter right now, but how long will it last? The partnerships with insurance companies to create a cyber-insurance policy, such as ABCC has done, is an approach many other platforms are now adopting. In my opinion, it is an absolutely necessary step as the entire nature of blockchain is to handle information and often sensitive information. This is a step in the right direction for the regulation of the every growing blockchain space.The relevance of Malta and the DELTA Summit is that it offers enthusiasts and entrepreneurs in the space and avenue to meet, innovate and hence, they are not waiting around for governments to do the work of regulation.

DirectX 12 comes to select Windows 7 games by Martin Brinkmann on March 13, 2019 in Windows – 8 commentsMicrosoft revealed on the official DirectX blog that Blizzard’s World of Warcraft game is the first game to support DirectX 12 on Windows 7.DirectX, a set of multimedia APIs used especially in PC games, is included natively in Windows. Microsoft releases new versions of DirectX regularly that introduce new features and improvements.The company announced DirectX 12 in 2014 and launched it officially in Windows 10 in 2015. Microsoft decided to make DirectX 12 Windows 10 exclusive which meant that customers who ran Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 were limited to DirectX 11. This was not the first time that Microsoft decided to limit DirectX though.When it released Windows Vista in 2006, it made DirectX 10 a Vista exclusive. The exclusivity backfired back then as the majority of game developers ignored DirectX 10 and focused on DirectX 9.0 instead which Windows XP supported as well.According to Microsoft’s blog post, it was Blizzard and other game companies that wanted to bring DirectX 12 support to their games on Windows 7. DirectX 12 offers advantages, such as low-level programing APIs or multi-GPU support, over previous versions of DirectX.Microsoft ported the user mode Direct3D 12 runtime to Windows 7 in response so the request so that select games can use DirectX 12 on the operating system.Today, with game patch 8.1.5 for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard becomes the first game developer to use DirectX 12 for Windows 7! Now, Windows 7 WoW gamers can run the game using DirectX 12 and enjoy a framerate boost [..]Microsoft is “working with a few other game developers” currently according to the blog post. DirectX 12 won’t become available universally on Windows 7, but only for select games according to Microsoft.It is unclear if the games will use DirectX 12 on Windows 7 only, or if the games will also use it on Windows 8.1. The newer operating system, supported until 2023, is not mentioned once by Microsoft.The announcement comes as a surprise for a number of reasons; probably the biggest is timing.Windows 7 has a remaining lifetime of just 9 months before Microsoft ends support. Microsoft did not reveal why it caved in and ported DirectX 12 to Windows 7 for select games. Maybe because it was not all that much of an effort to do so, or because it expects that many customers will keep on running Windows 7 for some time after support ends.A look back at the end of support for Windows XP suggests that history could repeat itself. It took years after support end before Windows XP usage numbers dropped significantly.The move would make sense if Windows 8.1 gamers would benefit from DirectX 12 support as well but that is unclear at this point.Another reason why the decision is surprising is that Microsoft does not back port features to older versions of Windows once it made the decision to limit them artificially to new versions of Windows.The change may be beneficial to game developers who have a large enough base of users on Windows 7 as they may focus on the DirectX 12 version of the game and introduce performance improvements at the same time.Now You: What is your take on this?SummaryArticle NameDirectX 12 comes to select Windows 7 gamesDescriptionMicrosoft revealed on the official DirectX blog that Blizzard’s World of Warcraft game is the first game to support DirectX 12 on Windows 7.

Stars from J. Lo to Bradley Cooper spotted at Super Bowl MINNEAPOLIS – Not everyone is watching Super Bowl 52 for the love of football — celebrities are a big part of the day, too. Here’s a breakdown of what is happening with entertainers on Sunday in Minnesota._____J. LO ON DATE NIGHT WITH A-RODJennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez continued to celebrate their one-year anniversary at the Super Bowl.The two were seen holding hands backstage at the U.S. Bank Stadium ahead of Justin Timberlake’s halftime performance. When asked by a reporter what he thought of the game, Rodriguez said he was enjoying it.Lopez gave a shout-out to her beau at a concert in Minnesota on Saturday night, saying “today is a very special day.”“I don’t want to get all mushy but baby this song is for you, she said before performing her new single, “Us.”Other celebrities who attended the game included Bradley Cooper, Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, Steph Curry, Diddy, former Vice-President Joe Biden, Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish._____JANET JACKSON STILL HAS PRESENCE AT SUPER BOWLEven though Janet Jackson didn’t end up performing with Justin Timberlake for his halftime show, the superstar was on the minds of many during Super Bowl 52.According to Twitter, from Saturday evening to Sunday evening there were more than 350,000 tweets about Jackson, with 250,000 posts using the hashtag #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay.Jackson was the Super Bowl halftime performer 14 years ago, with Timberlake as her special guest when he ripped off a portion of her top as the two performed his hit, “Rock Your Body.” A huge backlash ensued, and Jackson’s career suffered a backslide, while Timberlake’s flourished. Some Jackson fans are still angry, and started the hashtag in Jackson’s honour.While there were rumours Jackson might reunite with Timberlake at this year’s halftime performance, she shot them down with a statement over the weekend._____LESLIE ODOM JR. WANTED TO HONOR HIS ANCESTORS AT SUPER BOWLLeslie Odom Jr. said he wanted to pay tribute to his ancestors with his performance of “America the Beautiful” at Super Bowl 52.“I want to honour the experiences of my ancestors. I want to honour my history, my family’s history and my ancestors’ history when I stand up for a moment like that,” he said. “I want people to see all of that in a performance.”Odom Jr. earned his roaring applause Sunday. After the performance, in his suite at the U.S. Bank Stadium, he admitted he was “very nervous” before he hit the field, where he was backed by the Angelica Cantanti and ComMUSICation Youth Choirs.“I wanted to be an example to those kids because I know they were nervous behind me, and I just focused on that,” he said.The Tony-winning performer, best known as Aaron Burr in the monster Broadway hit “Hamilton,” was greeted by several people at the stadium, stopping him to say he did a wonderful job.“I’m trusting everyone telling me that it went well to know that it went well,” he said.“It’s cold outside but inside, you feel it, it’s warm, it’s inviting, it’s pleasant,” he added._____KELLY CLARKSON SUPPORTS FLU-STRICKEN PINK AHEAD OF PERFORMANCEKelly Clarkson says she’s not worried about Pink nailing the national anthem at the Super Bowl despite having the flu.When asked if she would fill in for Pink if needed, Clarkson said, “I don’t think Pink will need anybody to fill in for her. Even Pink with the flu is still hands down one of the best vocalists of our generation.”Clarkson added: “I would take Pink’s voice on a flu day any day.”Pink performed sick at a concert Friday in Minnesota and said it’s easy to become under the weather when you’re a mother of two children. Clarkson echoed her sentiments.“Our babies are right in our face, like the saliva, the mucus membranes are all around us,” she said. “We both have toddlers and I mean, they’re literally little petri dishes of disease walking, they just have everything. So we’re sick sometimes.”Clarkson was one of the tailgate performances Sunday at Nomadic Live at The Armory. She said she enjoys performing for sports fans.“The fun thing that you can always expect is it’s never going to be a dead crowd because either A, they’re drinking already or B, the energy of sports fans in general, they’re just excited to be here (and) they’re excited for their team,” she said.Though Clarkson is a Dallas Cowboys fan, she said she’s rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles over the New England Patriots.“My nanny is a huge Eagles fan, so we’re all Eagles today. And they’re the underdog, right? So, you know, it’s kind of cool,” she said._____SHEILA E. CALLS MINNEAPOLIS HER SECOND HOMESheila E. has a strong connection to Minneapolis because of her ties to Prince, calling the city “my second home.”“It’s great to be back. The people have been so gracious here, really cool, and been doing so many wonderful things with us and for us,” she said. “The hospitality that they have shown has been amazing. So it’s really nice to be back.”Sheila E. was engaged to Prince and they worked on a number of memorable songs, including the funky ’80s hit “The Glamorous Life.”Sheila E. was born in Oakland and the Grammy-nominated performer is a San Francisco 49ers fan.“Now we have a new quarterback, that’s good, so maybe next year we will get somewhere,” she said, referring to Jimmy Garoppolo, who joined the 49ers last year.She also said she’s a fan of the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints. For Sunday’s game, she said “if I had to choose between the two, probably Philly.”_____AP writers John Carucci and Nekesa Mumbi Moody contribute to this report.

Lawyer: Porn star who alleges Trump affair has faced threats LOS ANGELES, Calif. – A porn actress who said she had sex with Donald Trump before he became president has been threatened with physical harm, her attorney said Friday.Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has been seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election in order to discuss their relationship, which she said began in 2006 and continued for about a year.Lawyers for Trump, in a filing late Friday, claimed Clifford could owe more than $20 million in damages for violating the agreement.Clifford’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, told The Associated Press his client had been “physically threatened,” but he didn’t provide details. He would not comment on whether the threats came from anyone tied to the president, the Trump campaign or the Trump Organization.Clifford will discuss the threats during a segment on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” which is scheduled to air later this month. Avenatti said he was confident that people would believe her after watching her interview.“There’s the act and there’s the coverup, and the American people are going to learn about both in the interview and beyond,” the lawyer said during an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday.White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Friday that she had no knowledge of the situation and hadn’t spoken with the president about it.But, she said, “obviously we take the safety and security of any person seriously” and “certainly would condemn anyone threatening any individual.” Sanders said last week that Trump has “made very well clear that none of these allegations are true.”Clifford filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles last week that sought to invalidate the agreement so she could “set the record straight” and has offered to return the $130,000 she was paid for agreeing not to discuss the relationship. Clifford’s lawsuit claimed the “hush agreement” she signed in October 2016 is legally invalid because it was only signed by Clifford and Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, but was not signed by Trump.The lawsuit refers to her beginning an “intimate relationship” with Trump in 2006 that continued “well into the year 2007.” She said the relationship included encounters in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, and Beverly Hills, California. Trump married his current wife, Melania Trump, in 2005, and their son, Barron, was born in 2006.In a Friday evening court filing, an attorney for Cohen sought to move the case from a state-level court to federal court in Los Angeles. The court filing accused Clifford of violating the agreement’s confidentiality clauses more than 20 times and said she could be liable for $1 million in damages for each violation.A separate filing by Charles Harder, another attorney for Trump, said the president planned to join an “anticipated petition” to have the case heard by an arbitrator.Avenatti accused Cohen and Trump of trying to move the case to federal court to increase their chances of having the case heard by a private arbitrator, “thus hiding the truth from the public.”“The filing today is yet another bullying tactic from the president and Mr. Cohen,” Avenatti said on Twitter. “The fact that a sitting president is pursuing over $20M in bogus ‘damages’ against a private citizen, who is only trying to tell the public what really happened, is remarkable.”In addition to Clifford, six women have contacted Avenatti with similar stories, he said. Two of the women appear to have signed nondisclosure agreements, Avenatti said.Clifford also has previously denied through a lawyer that she and Trump had an affair, but Avenatti has said that was to meet the terms of the nondisclosure agreement.Cohen has denied there was ever an affair and said he paid the $130,000 out of his pocket. He has said neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Clifford and he was not reimbursed for the payment.Cohen did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Friday.
