Greece may pursue sanctions against Turkey amid gas disputes

OAN Newsroom

UPDATED 7:10 AM PT — Monday, June 17, 2019

The EU is being urged by Greek officials to take action against Turkey amid reports Ankara has started drilling for oil near Greece. Over the weekend, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras threatened Turkey with sanctions if those claims prove to be true.


A Turkish vessel has been docked just outside of Cyprus for about two months, and is said to be encroaching on Cyprus’ commercial economic zone. The Mediterranean region has been the source of conflict between the nations over access to its resources.

Tsipras said he wants to use the upcoming EU summit to push back against Turkey:


“The message we want to send today is a message of absolute security (for the Greek people), but also that whoever violates the sovereign rights of Greece, whoever violates the sovereign rights of Cyprus – which is a member state of the European Union – and whoever violates international law in the region, should know that there will be consequences.”


In the meantime, Turkey has received some support from southern EU leaders, who defended its right to drill in the Mediterranean.

Jury selection to begin for Navy SEAL accused of war crimes

OAN Newsroom

UPDATED 7:00 AM PT — Monday, June 17, 2019

Jury selection is set to begin for a Navy SEAL facing charges in connection with the murder of an ISIS prisoner. The trial for Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher will begin Monday in a San Diego court.


Gallagher has pleaded not guilty to premeditated murder in the 2017 killing of a terrorist and the attempted murder of two Iraqi citizens. His lawyers want the case dismissed, because they say investigators and prosecutors violated his rights to a fair trial by withholding evidence and tracking his emails.

One America News spoke with Gallagher’s brother, who said the claims against him are false.


“What has been infuriating for our family is that mountains of evidence — direct witness testimony, video and photographic evidence, and testimony from Iraqis, who have no vested interest in my brother’s case — has all said the charges against my brother, Chief Eddie Gallagher, are false, baseless and did not happen,” said Sean Gallagher.


President Trump is weighing pardons for several service members accused of war crimes, and Gallagher is reportedly up for consideration. His case is set to last for about a month, and he faces life in prison if convicted.

AOC: Joe Biden makes female voters uncomfortable, Clinton got a ‘pass’

OAN Newsroom

UPDATED 7:21 AM PT — Monday, June 17, 2019

According to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, female voters are uncomfortable with the prospect of Joe Biden being the 2020 Democrat nominee.


In an interview with ABC over the weekend, the New York lawmaker said the former vice president has not gained the support of half of the nation’s voters. This comes amid bipartisan scrutiny of multiple “inappropriate touching” claims against Biden.

Ocasio-Cortez also took aim at former president Bill Clinton by claiming he got a “pass” from the Democrat Party:


“When it comes to President Clinton, I think that it’s not just Democrats. I think that we have historically — from Anita Hill to the president today — I think that woman have historical bared a lot of difficulty, adversity in the workplace.”


However, Ocasio-Cortez said if Biden does become the nominee, she would back him in the general election.

Fort Worth Deputy Found Dead in Car, Died of Pulmonary Embolism

OAN Newsroom

UPDATED 11:27 AM PT — Sunday, June 16, 2019

New details surrounding the death of a Fort Worth sheriff’s deputy reveal, the 18 year veteran was not shot as initially reported.






Rather, the Texas deputy died after suffering from a medical emergency in his personal vehicle.


That’s according to the Tarrant County Sheriff’s office who now says, a medical examiner’s office has determined Sergeant Keith Shepherd suffered a pulmonary embolism Friday which led to his death.


Shepherd was reportedly on-duty taking a lunch break in his car when the condition struck.


Fellow deputies began to search for him after he did not clock back in, later finding him in his vehicle with ‘significant head injuries’.


First responders initially thought the worst and the Tarrant County’s Sheriffs Office reported Friday, Shepherd was believed to have died of a gunshot wound.


That information has been officially redacted and officials now say, the beloved sergeant’s family can rest easy knowing his service has forever impacted the Fort Worth community.

New York Times Under Fire from Pres. Trump and Don Jr.

OAN Newsroom

UPDATED 11:40 AM PT — Sunday, June 16, 2019

The President called for a poll to see which media outlet is more ‘deceitful’: The New York Times or The Washington Post.






On Twitter Sunday, he said ‘they are both a disgrace to our country, the enemy of the people, but I just can’t seem to figure out which is worse”.


This comes after President Trump alluded to a reelection win in the 2020 presidential race, saying ‘the good news is that at the end of six years after America has been made great again and I leave the beautiful White House, both of these horrible papers will quickly go out of business and be forever gone” he said on Twitter Sunday.


Plus, President Trump isn’t the only person sounding the alarm against fake media and, specifically, The New York Times.


Donald Trump Jr. slammed the New York Times Saturday over its recently debunked piece on the delay of placing Harriet Tubman on the 20 dollar bill.


He said, if the publication is really a so-called ‘paper of record’ it’s only because they continue to set records for the amount of fake news they print.


The comment refers to a Times article published Friday, which claimed an anonymous employee at the Treasury Department said the bill’s design was delayed for political reasons.


In fact, the bill’s release was pushed back from 2020 to 2028, however, an agency spokesperson says that’s because Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin, is focusing on the new bill’s security features and anti-counterfeiting measures.


Plus, The Bureau of Engraving and Printing Director, Len Olijar, also said it takes years to finalize a redesigned bill, citing the 100 dollar note which took nearly a decade to complete in response to the controversy.
