Sessions added his own letter to that effect, and both documents were sent to Trump, who then fired Comey later on the same day, May 9. Sen. Elizabeth Warren's fraught history with now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions is no secret.

Durant was once again the best player on the floor for the Warriors on Monday, hitting some timely 3-pointers en route to a team-high 39 points. The Warriors were shaky early, trailed through the entire first quarter and well into the second and had that look of a team going "Oh, no, not again".

Subban against the ice as they tussled during Game 5 , a 6-0 rout by the Penguins. Pittsburgh can also take some confidence in knowing they won the Stanley Cup a year ago in San Jose, California, so strolling around their opponent's ice with the Stanley Cup is something they are used to doing.

So hitting and being physical and just everything they do to us in the first three games, we have to do that. "Thank God I get to play". "We didn't play up to the level we're supposed to play at". I'm not so anxious about the Cavs replicating their unprecedented team shooting from game 4 (where they shot over 50% as a team from deep), but if we are struggling to score, slowing the Cavs offense down will be a prerequisite to victory.

The 23-year-old was the fifth man to skipper the Three Lions in Southgate's seven matches and rose to the occasion, firing home a late leveller after two stunning Leigh Griffiths free-kicks put Scotland on the brink of a famous win.

We also learned the whole Russian collusion theory is most likely conspiratorial. Watch his speech here. "It hasn't recovered from that".

The Warriors point guard has faced off against LeBron James countless times .

Coach Tyronn Lue had no choice but to put him on the bench for the rest of the half. The Celtics have an important offseason ahead of them, including the first overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, so it may just be best to end it all now and get moving onto next year.

He plays with an edge, which is a great complement to the Warriors' finesse game of 3-point shooters.
