Robert Mueller described 11 instances in which Donald Trump or his campaign engaged in potential obstruction of justice and suggested that Congress might prosecute the acts as crimes, according to the redacted version of the special counsel’s report released by the Department of Justice (DoJ) on Thursday.

 

Over almost 450 pages, portions of which remained hidden from public view, Mueller described in unprecedented detail Russian efforts to tamper in the 2016 presidential election and the Trump campaign’s receptivity to some of those efforts.

 

Mueller said his investigation discovered “multiple links between Trump campaign officials and individuals tied to the Russian government” and said “the campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts,” Mueller wrote.

 

Certain passages of the report describe behind-the-scenes moments as the president fended off the advance of investigators, including a description of Trump’s reaction to the appointment of Mueller: “the President slumped back in his chair and said, ‘Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m fucked.’” (Guardian – Continue Reading)

The UK’s stats office (ONS) said Wednesday that the annual rate of consumer price inflation (CPI) missed market expectations but remains stable near-term. The rise in petrol pump prices was offset by a drop in food prices and a slowing in the annual growth rate of computer games.

 

Annual house price growth in the UK slowed to its lowest rate in almost 7-years. 

 

March headline CPI was unchanged from at 1.9pct rate in February and fell short of the 2.0pct forecast. Core CPI (ex-fuel, alcohol & tobacco) slipped to 1.8pct, as expected, from 1.9pct last month.

China Keeps Buying Crude Oil For Storage, But Difficulties Loom

China appears to have kept the flow of crude into strategic and commercial storage facilities at high levels in the first quarter, even as the price of oil climbed.

 

While China doesn’t release detailed statistics of its strategic petroleum reserve (SPR) and commercial stockpiles a rough idea can be gleaned by looking at refinery throughput numbers and the volume of domestic and imported crude.

 

Refineries processed 12.6 million barrels per day (bpd) of crude in the first quarter, according to official data released on Wednesday, up 4.4 percent from the three months to end-December, and also up by the same margin from the year earlier quarter.
