Veteran French actor Catherine Deneuve has apologised to the victims of sex abuse after she signed a letter denouncing the MeToo movement and claiming that it unfairly punishes men for flirting "insistently or clumsily". The actor had denounced the #MeToo movement and its French equivalent, #Balancetonporc (Call out your pig), in a letter, signed by over 100 French actors. The letter said the movements have created a totalitarian climate by publicly prosecuting private experiences. In a personal statement, published in newspaper Liberation, Deneuve apologised to victims of "odious acts" but stood by the statement while distancing herself from a number of other female signatories. "I am a free woman and I will remain so. I greet fraternally all the victims of odious acts that may have felt aggrieved by this forum published in the World, it is to them and to them alone that I apologise," Deneuve wrote in the new letter. Deneuve said she signed the statement because she is

"Interview" with Mueller "seems unlikely" to happen: Trump 11.1.2018 General News
President Donald Trump today hinted that it "seems unlikely" that he would allow Special Counsel Robert Mueller to "interview" him in the ongoing probe into the potential links between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 US presidential election. Mueller and congressional committees investigating the matter have yet to reach a conclusion about whether any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia took place. Mueller, a former highly decorated FBI director, has already interviewed several of the close aides and family members of Trump over the issue. In the last one week, news reports have appeared in the US media that Mueller was seeking an interview with Trump as part of his investigation. Trump's attorneys were said to have asked whether it could be in the written format. At a joint news conference here with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Trump hinted that the interview was unlikely to happen. "We'll see what happens. I mean, certainly I'll see what
