UK Labour's main union backer can't see party winning election

Meanwhile Mr Corbyn's key union backer - Unite general secretary Len McCluskey - said Labour will have had a "successful" election campaign if it manages to hold on to 200 seats, restricting the increase in the size of Theresa May's majority.

The General Election could determine if the United Kingdom continues to exist, Kezia Dugdale warned, as she urged people in Scotland to reject the nationalist politics offered by the SNP and the Conservatives.

Scottish Labour believes that together we're stronger. For a government for the many, not the few, #VoteLabour on June 8th.

Ms Dugdale will say: "In the face of some of the greatest challenges our country has ever faced, the choice at this election is being presented as one between a Scottish National Party with no programme to speak of and an emboldened Tory party that is pushing a hard Brexit at all costs".

He went on: "There's a rumbling, a subterranean rumbling at the moment, where people are saying we want change".

She added: "The hundreds of thousands of Scots who vote for us have the absolute right to expect us to defend local services against cuts and properly fund the services that so many people rely on such as education and care for the elderly".

Committees in the House and the Senate will continue their own investigations while Mueller leads the Justice Department's probe. But I've also been honored to work with the individuals who have given the Justice Department its legacy and its lasting impact.
