News: "백악관, 코미 연방수사국장 증언 임박했다."
*사라 Sanders 백악관 부대변인
코미 저 연방수사국(FBI)의 청문회가 오는 8일(목) 연방의회 상원 정보위원회에서 열릴것이라고 백악관 사라 Sanders 부대변인이 오늘 정례브리핑에서 보도했다. 코미 전 국장은 러시아 스캔들을 수사하던 중 트럼프 대통령으로부터 전격 해임되었으며 백악관에서 트럼프 대통령을 단독으로 만났을때 수사 중단 요청을 받았다는 메모를 남겼다. 코미 전 국장은 이미 러시아 스캔들 수사를 위해 특별검사로 임명된 로버트 뮬러 전 FBI 국장과도 증언 범위등을 상의한 것으로 알려져 있다.
한편 러시아 내통 스캔들의 핵심 인사로 지목된 마이클 플린 전 백악관 국가안보보좌관은 러시아 내통 의혹과 관련한 증언을 거부했으나 하원 정보위가 강제소환장을 발부했다. 트럼프 대통령의 또 다른 측근인 변호사 마이클 코언에게도 소환장이 발부됐다. 하원 정보위는 러시아의 미국 대선 개입 정황을 다룬 보고서에 거론된 미국인의 신원을 파악하기 위해 국가안보국(NSA), 중앙정보국(CIA)에 대해서도 소환장을 발부했다 코미 전 국장의 증언과 플린 전 보좌관 소환에서 트럼프 대통령의 수사 개입 정황과 러시아 내통 의혹이 일부 사실로 확인된다면 파문이 매우 커질 것으로 보인다.
그러나 트럼프 대통령 측은 러시아 내통 의혹과 수사 개입정황 등을 모두 '가짜 언론의 뉴스'와 대선에서 패배한 민주당이 추구하는 '마녀사냥'이라며 강력히 반발하고 있다.

“Pentagon, ‘North Korea’s nuclear ambitions, ballistic missiles, serious concerns, urging to stop, China must act now!’
(1-24-2022) by: Janne Pak(White House and Pentagon Correspondent) @Please refer to this video.^ The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has announced that it will deploy additional warplanes, warships and troops to Eastern Europe as the situation in Ukraine is rapidly approaching due to the possibility of a Russian invasion of Ukraine. At a Pentagon press briefing today (24th, local time), Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said it could send 8,500 troops to Europe. Meanwhile, The U.S. Department of Defense is strongly concerned about North Korea's recent hints of resumption of nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests, and has called for a halt. "We have made very clear our concerns about North Korea's developing nuclear ambitions and ballistic missile capabilities," Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said at a regular Pentagon press briefing on the 24th (local time). "We continue to condemn this, and continue to urge North Korea to stop these provocations and seek ways to reduce tensions in compliance with international law and UN Security Council resolutions," Kirby said. In response to a request for comment on a South Korean intelligence official's recent report that North Korea is likely to launch an ICBM this year from the Tongchang-ri missile launch site,...

(1-21-2022) by: Janne Pak(White House and Pentagon Correspondent) @Please refer to the video for Q & A with the Pentagon Spokesman John Kirby and Janne Pak, Pentagon Correspondent. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he would resume nuclear and ICBM test launch that had been suspended. He also warned the U.S. could cross the red line. Today (21. local time) the White House held a video summit between President Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Kishida. And it was revealed that the two leaders discussed the denuclearization of North Korea and discussed various pending issues during this meeting. In response to North Korea's recent series of missile launches, President Biden said additional sanctions would follow. As sanctions against North Korea were not adopted as China exercised its veto power at the UN Security Council held yesterday, additional sanctions by the United States are inevitable. At today(21, local time) Pentagon briefing, the spokesman Kirby said he was deeply concerned about North Korea's ICBM launch, and U.S. wanted to sit face to face with North Korea and work out the issue. And He said it was considering a diplomatic approach as its top priority. As North Korea accelerates its tactical weapons, it is...

"The U.S. to keep security promises to South Korean allies!_ North Korean missile launch is still being assessed"
(1-14-2022) by: Janne Pak(White House & Pentagon Correspondent) @@(Please refer to the YouTube video for Q & A with the Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.) The South Korean government announced on the 13th (local time) that the third missile launched by North Korea this year is a North Korean-style Iskander ballistic missile and has fired two tactical guided missiles. North Korea has closed its borders due to the corona virus, and people are complaining of hunger. However, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is just firing missiles. The international community condemns Kim Jong-un's reckless behavior. The White House and the State Department issued statements condemning North Korea's ballistic missile launches, and the Pentagon also issued a statement from the Indo-Pacific Command. The Secretary of State Blinken condemned North Korea's weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and ballistic missile programs, stressing that North Korea should come to the table. The international community's condemnation of North Korea's threatening behavior is growing. North Korea continues to fire missiles to obtain sanctions relief from the United States, and there is an observation that the United States will not easily ease sanctions until North Korea denuclearizes. Experts on the Korean Peninsula in Washington say that Kim Jong-un is...

(1-13-2022) by: Janne Pak(White House & Pentagon Correspondent) @Janne Pak, Pentagon Correspondent(1/13/2022). The North Korea fired another missile on the 11th (local time). It was the second launch this year. North Korea reported that the missile was a hypersonic missile and that it was the final hypersonic missile launch. The intention of North Korea's successive missile launches is unknown, but it is clear that it is intended to pressure the U.S. North Korea said it will continue to accelerate its strengthening of its national defense capabilities. It is also known that winter military training is still in progress. From this point of view, it is expected that the North Korean armed protests will continue. Today (13th, local time) is my question about "North Korea's second missile launch" at the U.S. Department of Defense briefing. The following is a Q and A with Pentagon Spokesman John Kirby. Q:(Janne Pak): Thank you. I follow up that North Korea missile launches and that second missile launch. As far as I know, U.S. are still assessing the detail of it. But North Korea is saying that this hypersonic missile test fire was the final test launch. And Kim Jong-un and his sister observed this...

(1-10-2022) by: Janne Pak(White House & Pentagon Correspondent) @Watch video! The U.S. Department of Defense spokesperson John Kirby said today (10th, local time) that, my question about "What is the U.S. assessment of North Korea's claims that its fired hypersonic missile last week?" "I've seen the claims. We're aware of the claims. We don't have any updates to an assessment about -with more specificity as to what was fired. We've called it a ballistic missile. And we are still assessing the details of it. And as you know, ballistic missile - a Ballistic Missile program them firing ballistic missiles continues to be in violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions. And we certainly call on the DPRK to abide by those obligations and those responsibilities and to look for ways to de-escalate."spokesperson Kirby said. In addition, when asked whether this could be seen as a strong signal to China and North Korea that the United States and Japan agreed to jointly develop a hypersonic missile response system at the 2+2 meeting, he said, “The increasing tension in the Indo-Pacific region from a security standpoint. “We cannot continue to watch North Korea, which is really talking about the challenges and challenges...

(1-05-2022) by: Janne Pak(White House & Pentagon Correspondent) @A ballistic missile launched by North Korea into the East Sea on New Year's Day on January 5, 2022. On January 5, 2022 (local time in South Korea), it was reported that North Korea had launched a ballistic missile into the East Sea, but it was revealed that North Korea had conducted a test launch of a hypersonic missile. This missile has the capability to hit a target of 700 km. In addition, the South Korean Ministry of National Defense is closely investigating a nuclear-capable KN missile, and expressed concern that North Korea's armed protests will continue. North Korea's missile launch is the first in 78 days since the launch of a new submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) on October 19 last year. North Korea's aggression is likely to continue in the future, considering that the Kim Jong-un regime is accelerating its military force by continuing the development of new weapons according to their plans in 2022 at the recent plenary meeting of the Workers' Party of North Korea. The launch of ballistic missiles is a violation of UN Security Council resolutions. North Korea's aggression behavior is a direct rejection of the 'appeasement...

(12-31-2021) by: Janne Pak(White House & State Department Correspondent) “A resemblance to the Korean situation?!" "A confident government that is not afraid of the truth embraces freedom of speech.” @U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Former South Korean President Park Geun-hye was released on a special pardon on the 31st (local time) after ending her four years and nine months of imprisonment. President Park Geun-hye spent a long time in prison after the current President Moon Jae-in took over her crimes to usurp the regime. In addition, the Moon Jae-in regime has imprisoned many innocent ex-bureaucrats. After the Moon Jae-in administration pardoned President Park Geun-hye, a 15 million dollars fine was also exempted. However, innocent president Park Geun-hye, was severely deteriorating her health after her long-term imprisonment. The Moon Jae-in administration violated the human rights of the Korean people in the name of eradicating corruption, and the freedom of speech, expression and assembly was also blocked. A confident government that is unafraid of the truth embraces a free press. The Moon Jae-in government fears that the truth will come out. Moon Jae-in was a person who had been active in the democratization movement in the past, but he became a...

He emphasized again and again that it can only happen in a reduced environment. This is noteworthy as Russian President Vladimir Putin recently announced that he would assemble 100,000 troops on the border with Ukraine and that he would respond militarily in various ways if the United States and NATO failed to guarantee security. Russia has warned Western countries of military action, and the United States is suggesting super-strong sanctions. It is...
