    AN audience with Roman Abramovich - it’s the golden ticket for any Chelsea supporter and the rarest of opportunities for football reporters too. So when I stumbled across an impromptu fans’ forum with Chelsea’s secretive billionaire owner in 2007, it was one of the most surreal experiences I’ve ever had. 5Roman Abramovich once led a fans' forum in a Valencia hotel bar to explain why he'd sacked fan favourite Jose MourinhoCredit: Getty Images - Getty 5Abramovich felt the need to explain why he'd sacked fan-favourite Mourinho to supportersCredit: PA:Press Association Literally surreal, in that it was so unlikely, I wondered whether I’d dreamt it. Abramovich gave one interview to the Financial Times around the time of his 2003 Chelsea takeover - when the young oligarch caused a sensation by becoming the first foreigner to take over a Premier League club. In the intervening 18 years, he has never spoken to another media outlet... but on a strange night in Valencia, I fluked it. Just a fortnight after Jose Mourinho’s first Stamford Bridge sacking had caused outrage among supporters, Chelsea travelled...

Still, through the growing pains, Williams’ personality meshed well with his teammates and soon everyone knew just how difficult it can be to quiet Grant down. He’s...

    Attorney General William Barr listens as United States President Donald J. Trump, unseen, speaks in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Tuesday, June 16, 2020.Stefani Reynolds | Bloomberg | Getty Images Attorney General William Barr spoke with President Donald Trump about Roger Stone and recommended against granting him clemency, an administration official told NBC News. Other White House officials were also opposed to Trump's decision due to fears of political blowback, including Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, according to a person familiar with the matter.  The official also said that the Department of Justice had nothing to do with the president's decision to commute Stone's sentence on seven felony crimes, which occurred only four days before the 67-year-old Republican operative was set to start his 40 months in federal prison.  Barr had previously said that Stone's prosecution was "righteous" and the sentence was fair, and defended his decision to oppose a stricter sentence for Stone.  The Justice Department and White House did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.  Stone, a former campaign aide, was...
    House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., told "The Story" Tuesday that activists calling for the removal of statues across the country have gone a step too far by targeting depictions of George Washington and Ulysses S. Grant. "I have no idea what they know or do not know," Clyburn told host Martha MacCallum. "I know what I know ... and I do know that no one was more anti-slavery than Ulysses S. Grant. Yet, I saw the other day that somebody interpreted his having married into a family of slave owners that he [was] disqualified. "I could not disagree more," Clyburn added. "I think that he ought to be judged on his own merit." STATUES OF WASHINGTON, GRANT VANDALIZED AMID BLM PROTESTS Clyburn joined "The Story" hours after Joe Biden broached the subject during his first press conference in 89 days. "I think all those Confederate monuments to Confederate soldiers and generals, et cetera, who strongly supported secession and the maintenance of slavery, and going to war to do it, I think those statues belong in a museum," Biden said. "They don't belong in public places." However, Biden also said that "the...
