President Donald Trump on Sunday denied that he knew about reports of Russia secretly offering bounties for US troops in Afghanistan, saying that intelligence did not find the information “credible.” 

The New York Times detailed the alleged Russian plot on Friday, which, according to The Times, involved covertly offering money to Taliban-linked militants to kill coalition forces in Afghanistan. The Times report claimed that Trump was made aware of the matter in March but chose not to act.

On Saturday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said that neither Trump nor Vice President Mike Pence had been briefed on the intelligence

“The United States receives thousands of intelligence reports a day, and they are subject to strict scrutiny,” McEnany said. 

In a tweet on Sunday, Trump said that US intel “did not find this info credible,” and therefore did not report it to him or Pence. He called The Times report “possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax.” 

In an earlier tweet, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said it was “imperative Congress get to the bottom” of The Times’ report. 

On Saturday, former Vice President and Trump’s 2020 rival Joe Biden said at a virtual town hall that the report indicated that Trump betrayed his duties as president. 

“It’s a betrayal of the most sacred duty we bear as a nation to protect and equip our troops when we send them into harm’s way,” Biden said. “It’s a betrayal of every single American family with a loved one serving in Afghanistan or anywhere overseas.” 

Russia’s foreign ministry said the allegations were fabricated by US intelligence agencies. 

“That unpretentious fake clearly demonstrates low intellectual abilities of US intelligence propagandists who have to invent such nonsense instead of devising something more credible,” the foreign ministry said, according to state-owned TASS news agency.

Windrose Recovery announces the opening of new intensive outpatient addiction treatment program in Brookfield Wisconsin




BROOKFIELD, Wis., May 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Windrose Recovery, a family of independently owned addiction treatment programs in southeastern Wisconsin, is pleased to announce the opening of its newest program, Windrose Counseling.

Windrose Counseling offers comprehensive, personalized outpatient treatment for substance dependence that addresses every aspect of each individual’s journey. Windrose Counseling’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) focuses on collaborating with individuals to implement holistic, evidence-based treatment uniquely tailored to address their needs and create healthy and fulfilling lives.

The program’s state-of-the-art location in suburban Milwaukee features a thoughtfully designed space connected to Windrose Recovery’s Midwest Detox—a program that gives those struggling with substance use disorders a private detoxification and stabilization experience with respect, dignity, and expertise. The integration of these services is intentional, providing individuals with convenient access to the next steps in their recovery journey.

“We are excited to bring a new approach to the addiction treatment available locally,” says Ryan Schneider, LCSW, CSAC, Administrator of Midwest Detox and Windrose Counseling. “Many of our clients are seeking treatment that addresses the whole person, including important deeper psychological factors that addiction is often rooted within. We have found that when treatment creates a space for clients to explore the issues surrounding and preceding their addiction, they’re able to create a process of change which resonates internally and thus is far more likely to be sustained.”

Rather than treating alcohol and drug dependence as a standalone issue, Windrose Counseling works collaboratively with each patient to address the source of the problem and co-create a sustainable plan towards wellness and lasting recovery. Through powerful and impactful group experiences and insight gained from individual sessions, those struggling with addictive substances will strengthen their ability to make choices that align with their values.

About Windrose Recovery

Envisioned by leading mental health and addiction professionals, Windrose Recovery is an independently owned family of addiction treatment programs in Southeastern Wisconsin providing truly personalized treatment to help individuals and their loved ones break free from the cycle of substance use disorders. What began in 2015 with the opening of The Manor, an eleven-bed residential addiction treatment center in Wisconsin’s Kettle Moraine Forest, has now evolved into a full continuum of care that includes Midwest Detox for medical detoxification and Windrose Counseling for outpatient treatment services.

EMBRAER S.A.: SkyWest Airlines Orders Eight New E175 Aircraft for Operation with Alaska Airlines




SÃO JOSÉ DOS CAMPOS, Brazil, May 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Embraer (NYSE: ERJ; B3: EMBR3) has agreed to the sale of eight new E175 jets to SkyWest, Inc. (NASDAQ: SKYW) for operation with Alaska Airlines, adding to the 32 SkyWest E175 jets SkyWest already flies for Alaska. The E175 aircraft will fly exclusively with Alaska Airlines under a Capacity Purchase Agreement (CPA). The value of the contract, which will be included in Embraer’s second-quarter backlog, is USD 399.2 million, based on list price.

Alaska Airlines, a new member of the oneworld Alliance, currently has 62 Embraer E175 jets in their fleet, operated by Horizon Air and SkyWest Airlines. The 76-seat aircraft will be delivered in Alaska’s livery and three-class configuration, starting in 2022.

President and CEO of SkyWest, Chip Childs, said, “With these aircraft, we will have over 220 E175s, operating more than any other carrier in the world. Our customers love the E175; and we have great confidence in and appreciate our long-standing partnership with Embraer for more than 35 years.”

“We have navigated through the pandemic and we’re on a solid path to recovery. The E175 remains a key part of our strategy,” said Nat Pieper, Alaska Airlines senior vice president of fleet, finance and alliances. “We’re excited about growth in the years ahead, which has always been at the heart of Alaska’s DNA. The E175 is a terrific plane to help us add new routes and frequencies, and to complement our mainline aircraft to meet fluctuating demand with the right capacity.”

Mark Neely, VP Sales and Marketing, The Americas, Embraer Commercial Aviation, ‎said, “The E175 is truly the backbone of the North American regional market; Embraer’s market share in the region’s 70-90-seat segment is 85%. There are currently 588 E175s serving U.S. and Canadian carriers in cities across Canada, the USA, Mexico, and Central America.”

The E175 has been a lifeline for carriers as they are perfectly suited to rebuild frequencies and add incremental capacity to meet rebounding domestic demand. During 2020 it was the first aircraft type to bounce back, meeting 100% of Alaska’s 2019’s schedule by Nov. 2020. Last October, the E175 started complementing larger aircraft on several intra-Alaska routes to meet demand fluctuations. Alaska Airlines has also been building its presence in California with the addition of new seasonal routes between cities in the Golden State and Montana with the E175.
