Developing now, Wednesday, May 9, 2018 President Donald Trump says the U.S. will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal; critics see decision as Trump’s latest move to undo the Obama legacy Ex-con mining boss Don Blankenship fails in his U.S. Senate run in West Virginia, losing to state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey; Indiana businessman Mike Braun and Ohio Rep. Jim Renacci win their GOP Senate primaries, while incumbent U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger loses in North Carolina to the Rev. Mark Harris Gina Haspel, President Trump’s choice to head the CIA, is expected to face Senate Intelligence Committee questions Wednesday as her confirmation hearing gets underway Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in North Korea, making preparations for Trump’s anticipated summit with Kim Jong Un A firmed linked to a Russian oligarch made more than $1 million in payments to Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, a report says THE LEAD STORY – TRUMP REJECTS IRAN DEAL – AND OBAMA: President Trump’s announcement Tuesday that the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement marks just the latest development in the president’s ongoing effort to undo predecessor Barack Obama’s legacy — including trying to dismantle ObamaCare while making drastic changes to U.S. immigration and military policies … In his address to the nation announcing the pullout, Trump said the Iran deal had been “so poorly negotiated that even if Iran fully complies, the regime can still be on the verge of a nuclear breakout in just a short period of time.” Since taking office in January 2017, Trump has repealed or rescinded dozens of regulations, executive orders and international agreements implemented by the Obama administration over the eight years of his presidency. Meanwhile, the head of Iran’s parliamentary committee on national security said Wednesday that the country is preparing to continue spending on its ballistic missile program, a direct response to Trump’s decision. PRIMARY ROUND-UP: West Virginia’s attorney general, Patrick Morrisey, pulled off an upset in the state’s Senate Republican primary on Tuesday, defeating former coal executive Don Blankenship and U.S. Rep. Evan Jenkins in the combative race that saw a last-minute appeal from President Trump … The results could be seen as a victory for Trump, who had urged Republican voters to reject Blankenship as doomed to lose to incumbent Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin in November. It could also be seen as a win for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who clashed with Blankenship during the campaign. Meanwhile, Indiana businessman Mike Braun and Ohio Rep. Jim Renacci will also both win their state’s Republican Senate primaries, according to the Fox News Decision Desk. Also in Ohio, Republican Mike DeWine and Democrat Richard Cordray won their parties’ primaries in the race to succeed term-limited GOP Gov. John Kasich. And in North Carolina, U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger, lost the Republican primary to challenger Mark Harris, a Baptist minister. Pittinger is the first incumbent to lose his seat this primary season. CIA
