The CIA knew Putin favored Clinton for president, but told the opposite story.

Nine firefighters injured in explosion of a CNG-powered semi-truck in the Wilmington neighborhood in the South Bay and Harbor region of Los Angeles

Nine LAFD Firefighters were injured during an explosion, while responding to a vehicle fire in Wilmington. Two of the nine remain in critical condition.
