President Trump told porn actress Stephanie Clifford she reminded him of his daughter while the pair carried on a not-so-steamy affair more than a decade ago, Clifford told In Touch Weekly in 2011.

She said that Trump was nothing special in the sack, telling the magazine that the sex was “textbook generic.”

“It was nothing crazy. It was one position, what you would expect from someone his age to do,” Clifford said.

President Trump blamed Russia on Wednesday for helping North Korea evade U.N. sanctions, saying Moscow is mitigating the impact of China’s increased efforts to restrict the flow of resources to Kim Jong Un’s government.

“Russia is not helping us at all with North Korea,” Trump said in an interview with Reuters. “What China is helping us with, Russia is denting. In other words, Russia is making up for some of what China is doing.”

Even as Trump credited China for stepping up its efforts, he said Beijing could apply additional pressure on the government in Pyongyang to cease its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

Ten Democratic senators on Wednesday demanded that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and other senior administration officials respond to allegations of widespread sexual harassment in the government’s national security establishment.

The lawmakers cited an open letter published in late November that was signed by more than 200 current and former female government employees who said they had witnessed, been subjected to or knew of incidents of sexual harassment or assault at their workplaces or at the hands of co-workers.

The women included employees of the State Department, the Pentagon, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and other parts of the government.

A Senate committee on Wednesday for the second time overwhelmingly confirmed Jerome H. Powell to be the next head of the Federal Reserve, a vote that was necessary after his nomination expired at the end of last year.

A former CIA officer has been arrested and charged with illegally retaining classified records, including names and phone numbers of covert CIA assets.

Jerry Chun Shing Lee, 53, was arrested Monday night after arriving at JFK International Airport. He made an initial appearance Tuesday in federal court in New York, but will face charges in northern Virginia, where the CIA is located.

According to court documents, Lee, a Hong Kong resident, served in the CIA from 1994 to 2007 as a case officer. He worked in a variety of overseas offices and was trained in surveillance detection, recruiting and handling assets and classified material, among other things.
