Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal was rejected by Parliament in a humiliating defeat, her plan for leaving the European Union all but dead. The House of Commons voted 432- 202 against the divorce she painstakingly brokered with the EU over 18 months. The largest parliamentary loss in over a century not only prompted the main opposition Labour Party to make its move to try force an election, it also hardened the EU’s position.

Pacific Gas and Electric, the utility company that has been tied to deadly wildfires in California, said Monday it plans to file for bankruptcy protection at the end of the month. The San Francisco-based company said its decision to reorganize under Chapter 11 is linked to more than $30 billion in claims it is facing over the so-called 2018 Camp Fire in Northern California -- the deadliest in the state's modern history -- that left 86 people dead. The utility has also been sued over blazes in 2017 that devastated the wine region in Northern California and left more than 40 people dead.

Following president Trump’s firing of former FBI director James Comey, a group of senior FBI officials considered the possibility that the dismissal was executed “at the behest of” the Russian government, according to Congressional testimony obtained by CNN. Then-FBI general counsel James Baker testified last year that he and other officials considered whether Trump was “acting at the behest of [Russia] and somehow following directions, somehow executing their will,” when he fired Comey in May, 2017. The other extreme is that the President is completely innocent, and we discussed that too,” Baker told House investigators.

The cockpit voice recorder from a Lion Air jet that crashed last October has been recovered, Indonesian authorities said Monday, a discovery that could be critical to establishing why the brand new plane fell out of the sky shortly after take-off.

Haryo Satmiko, deputy head of Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee (NTSC), told AFP the box had been recovered early Monday morning.

It’s “unacceptable” for Russia that the islands are described as the Northern Territories in Japan’s laws and “we asked a number of questions about how our Japanese colleagues plan to move to overcome this particular problem,” Lavrov said.

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway has said that Donald Trump did not destroy any notes from a meeting with Vladimir Putin and that “leaks” may have led the president to be secretive about his talks with the Russian leader. A recent report from The Washington Post have alleged that Mr Trump went to “extraordinary” lengths to conceal his discussions with Mr Putin, including reportedly taking the notes from his interpreter after a meeting with the Russian leader in 2017. Ms Conway told reporters that the president is “transparent”, and that the level of "leaks" during the administration would have justified a heightened sense of concern that his talks with Mr Putin would get into the public domain.

China's trade surplus with the United States hit a record high last year but the country's imports and exports fell in December as the long-running trade war begins to bite in the world's number two economy, data showed Monday. The surplus with the US is a major source of anger within the Trump administration, which imposed tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars worth of Chinese goods last year and has warned of more to come. The figures come after a US delegation held three days of talks in Beijing last week in the first face-to-face meeting since Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping in December pledged a 90-day truce to resolve the crisis.

Boston Scientific and Edwards Lifesciences have been embroiled in a number of legal cases for several years involving heart valve replacement systems, including transcatheter aortic valves, in the United States and Europe. All pending cases or appeals in courts and patent offices will be dismissed, the companies said in a joint statement on Tuesday. The valves are used in a relatively new procedure called transcatheter aortic valve replacement, or TAVR, in which the original heart valve is not surgically removed.
