    The Australian federal police have raided the Canberra home of intelligence officer Cameron Gill... Cameron Gill was also listed as an adviser to then defence materiel minister, Mal Brough, in defence documents recording a meeting with former US ambassador John Berry in 2015. It is unclear whether Wednesday’s raid is connected to the Smethurst story, which reported that the heads of the defence and home affairs ministries had discussed draconian new powers to allow the Australian Signals Directorate to spy on Australian citizens for the first time.

    On Tuesday, journalists on all three network morning shows joined liberal celebrities in rushing to defend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle against accusations of hypocrisy after the supposedly environmentally-conscious royal couple took two different trips on private jets within a week.

    CONCORD, N.H. — Gov. Chris Sununu on Friday vetoed three bills that advocates said would have added “commonsense” protections for Granite Staters against gun violence but opponents said would have done nothing to stop mass shootings and would have infringed on the constitutional rights of citizens. Sununu vetoed House 109, which closes the so-called gun show loophole and requires background checks for virtually all commercial firearms sales or transfers; House Bill 514, which requires a three-day waiting period before the purchase and delivery of a firearm; and House Bill 564, which prohibits carrying a firearm on school property. “New Hampshire...

    One day after CW president Mark Pedowitz addressed whether his network would cease filming of signature series like Black Lightning in Georgia, ABC’s president of entertainment Karey Burke found herself in the hot seat. “It’s an open issue,” said Burke of whether ABC would film in the state after controversial legislation passed in May that would restrict a woman’s access to abortion about six weeks into pregnancy. “This law is being challenged right now in the courts. We will just wait to see what’s decided and make a decision.” Burke fielded questions at the Television Critics’ Association press tour about...

    The production studio behind ABC’s The Rookie says it has launched an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment and racial bullying made by cast member Afton Williamson, who quit the series after sensing that her complaints had been largely ignored. As first reported by TVLine, Williamson is not returning for Season 2 of the procedural, where she played training officer Talia Bishop opposite Nathan Fillion’s title character. In a message posted to Instagram early Sunday morning, the actress alleged that starting with the pilot shoot in spring 2018 and throughout all of Season 1, she “experienced racial discrimination/racially charged inappropriate...

    BALTIMORE — A new audit ordered amid the controversy about former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh's book deals makes no mention that her financial dealings touched the city's Children and Youth Fund. The fund is managed by a charity that took donations and then bought Pugh's books. **SNIP** To date, about $36 million has been allocated to the fund, but just $9.6 million has gone out of the fund to organizations serving children and youth. The city pays Associated Black Charities, which is headed by Diane Bell McKoy, to manage the fund. The audit was ordered in the spring after ABC...

    Impeachment is a doomed prospect after Special Counsel Robert Mueller's testimony on Wednesday, a senior correspondent for ABC News contended. ABC's Terry Moran speculated that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., would be unwilling to heed lawmakers' calls for impeachment proceedings, which are likely to be unpopular with the American public. "Impeachment's over," he said. "I don't think Nancy Pelosi is going to stand for her members bringing forth something that is going to obviously lose in the Senate, lose with the American public."

    Monday on ABC’s “The View,” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) said President Donald Trump was “inciting racism and violence,” by continuing his feud with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), known as “The Squad.” Co-host Sunny Hostin asked, “The president hasn’t backed down on his attacks on the four freshmen congresswomen. This weekend he tweeted this, ‘I don’t believe the four congresswomen are capable of loving our country.’ Do you think the president is inciting violence against these women?”

    ABC host George Stephanopoulos said he regrets dining with Jeffrey Epstein about a year after the accused sex trafficker finished his first stint in jail for pleading guilty to soliciting an underage prostitute. “That dinner was the first and last time I’ve seen him,” Stephanopoulos said in an email to The New York Times. “I should have done more due diligence. It was a mistake to go.” Epstein hosted Stephanopoulos and a slew of other media insiders — including news anchors Katie Couric and Charlie Rose, comedian Chelsea Handler and director Woody Allen — at his Manhattan townhome in December...

    Turns out George Stephanopoulos did more than just donate to the Clinton Foundation while working as an ‘impartial’ media person for ABC. He also joined Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein at Lolita Island in 2010. Lolita Island is also known as ‘Pedo Island’. This one documented trip by George Stephanopoulos and Bill Clinton was in December of 2010. George Stephanopoulos was at ABC at the time. This was just two years before that ridiculous GOP debate where George Stephanopoulos badgered Mitt Romney about banning contraception. Now I know why it was such an issue for George Stephanopoulos.

    After 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris attacked former Vice President Joe Biden during the first Democratic presidential debate for opposing busing in the 1970s, it sparked a larger conversation among candidates about whether the federal government should return to forced busing to integrate America's schools. “I support the busing,” Harris, D-Calif., said Sunday to reporters. “The schools of America are as segregated or more segregated today than when I was in elementary school. And we need to put every effort, including busing, into play to desegregate the schools.” Harris isn't the only 2020 presidential candidate to weigh in on...

In the interview, Trump said he would be willing to listen to foreign governments if they approached him with information on a political rival, adding that he would not necessarily contact the FBI if such an approach was made. Trump's remarks sparked outrage among Democrats and other critics, including Ruhle, who was guest-hosting "All In with Chris Hayes."
