Trump: I bluffed Comey on ?tapes? to keep him honest
President Trump?s warning last month that his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey might have been taped was an attempt to affect Comey?s public statements and his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, the president admitted in an interview Friday morning. After refusing to comment for nearly six weeks, Trump finally acknowledged Thursday that he has no such tapes. ?When he found out that I, you know, that there might be tapes out there, whether it?s governmental tapes or anything else, and who knows, I think his story may have changed,? Trump said of Comey in a ?Fox & Friends? interview.

Israeli court stands up for woman in airline gender seat swap case
A court has told the Israeli airline El Al that it can no longer ask women passengers to switch seats if ultra-Orthodox Jewish men object to sitting next to them, an Israeli advocacy group said on Thursday. A case for damages from the carrier was brought by 83-year-old Renee Rabinowitz, who was asked by a flight attendant, after boarding a flight from Newark to Tel Aviv in 2015, if she would agree to move. The airline has said it tries to accommodate ultra-Orthodox men, who cite religious beliefs in seeking to avoid close proximity to women other than their wives, but never pressures female passengers to accede to a seat swap request.

White House concedes Russia meddled in campaign, but denies it changed the result
The White House Thursday addressed the joint intelligence report that found Russia had attempted to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, more than five months after the report?s conclusions were made public. First, on Twitter, President Trump dismissed the concerns about Russia as a ?big Dem HOAX? and suggested that his predecessor, President Barack Obama, did little to confront the problem. White House aides then clarified Trump?s remarks and said he believes there was Russian meddling but is certain it did not affect the outcome of the race.
