    [FULL TITLE] Mueller said he could wrap up probe by Sept. 1 if he can interview Trump by mid-July, Giuliani tells Fox News Special Counsel Robert Mueller has told President Trump's legal team he should be able to wrap up the Russia investigation by Sept. 1 if he is able to interview Trump by mid-July, Rudy Giuliani told Fox News on Sunday. Giuliani said he and Mueller spoke about an end date to the investigation approximately two weeks ago. During that conversation, Giuliani told Mueller that any interview of Trump by the special counsel would be contingent on knowing when...

    WASHINGTON — The special counsel plans to finish by Sept. 1 its investigation into whether President Trump obstructed the Russia inquiry, according to the president’s lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani, who said on Sunday that waiting any longer would risk improperly influencing voters in the midterm elections in November. The office of the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, shared its timeline about two weeks ago amid negotiations over whether Mr. Trump will be questioned by investigators, Mr. Giuliani said, adding that Mr. Mueller’s office said the date was contingent on Mr. Trump agreeing to be interviewed. A spokesman for the...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller wants to interview President Trump — but how far is he willing to go to get the president's testimony? Some legal experts believe Mueller might have gathered sufficient evidence for indictments even without a Trump interview. They say Mueller could be reluctant to get bogged down in the months-long legal battle that would ensue were the president to resist a subpoena. “Originally my thought was, ‘Without question, Mueller will subpoena him given how he has handled this case.’ I’m not so completely sure of that anymore. I think Mueller could say, ‘We’ve tried to accommodate them,...

    Once again, a mass murderer has opened fire at a school in America – this one is Santa Fe High School in Texas – and video games are already being blamed. Rather than, oh, say, gun control, or the lack thereof. Details are still coming in. The attack happened just a few hours ago. At this stage, it appears nine students and one teacher are dead, ten more wounded, explosives were potentially found at the school, and a suspect has been taken into custody. In his segment on Fox News covering the shooting, anchor Jon Scott was chatting to a...

    It’s Sunday so I offer a prayer for journalists: If you’re unfamiliar with the Dunning-Kruger Effect it states that some people are not only incompetent but their incompetence robs them of the mental ability to realize just how inept they are. Or put another way, they know not what they know not…Physics? I don’t need no stinkin’ physics!…and proceed accordingly.That seems to explain the vast majority of the journalist class. And perhaps this explains why: Journalists drink too much, are bad at managing emotions, and operate at a lower level than average, according to a new study. Excerpts: Journalists’ brains...

    Longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone pledged to have someone lined up to challenge Vice President Mike Pence should he run for president in 2020. During an interview Friday with Big League Politics, a right-wing news website, Stone suggested that President Trump may not ultimately run for re-election if his first term is adequately successful and denounced the possibility of a 2020 ticket with Pence and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. "I guarantee you I will have a candidate challenge Mike Pence," said while speaking on the "Howley Reports" show. Stone derided Pence as a "establishment Republican quisling"...

    MT. MORRIS, NY (WROC) - A sex offender, who served time for the sexual assault of a 5-year-old, has been charged with a parole violation in Livingston County. Mount Morris police tell News 8 that Terri Havens was investigated after posting an advertisement on Craigslist looking for a personal aide. A person who responded to the ad made a report to the sheriff's office, officials said. During a search, police say investigators learned Havens had used a phone to access the internet — a violation of parole terms.

    President Donald Trump's allegation that the Department of Justice put a "spy" inside his presidential campaign to frame him is being widely dismissed as absurd by current and former law enforcement officials. But it would not be absurd to think the FBI might have sent informants to speak to suspects in their counterintelligence investigation into whether anyone in the Trump orbit was working with Russia to interfere in the presidential election. In fact, it would have been accepted procedure for the FBI. "The notion of fully embedded government operatives inside a campaign is hard to imagine under these circumstances," said...

    First lady Melania Trump has been in the hospital for four days, with no word on exactly when she will be released. Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, would not give any details about why the first lady was there, but a White House statement said she underwent an embolization procedure on Monday morning to treat a benign kidney condition. President Trump tweeted Monday that she "is doing really well" and would be leaving the hospital in "2 or 3 days" after her procedure. Embolization "cuts off the blood supply to a certain part of the body,"...

    We have Charles Darwin to thank for opening our eyes to the forces of natural selection so useful today in medical research, healthcare, and technology. But Darwin also did us a great disservice, all too blithely extrapolating from observable "bounded" evolution to his Grand Theory of microbe-to-man "unbounded" evolution. In a nutshell, Darwin speculated that, since there is evolution within well-defined species, then all species must surely be the result of evolution. Logical enough, but simply wrong. Darwin's extrapolation is fraught with a host of problems, at least one of which—in three particulars—is fatal to his Grand Theory.That fatal flaw?...

    When President Trump recently referred to MS-13 gang members as “animals,” the mainstream media, left-wing pundits, and Democrats were outraged by the statement. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed Trump’s attack on MS-13 gang members, saying, “Does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?” Multiple media pundits, including the Washington Post‘s Jennifer Rubin,defended MS-13 gang members against Trump’s “animals” remark, calling the statement “disgusting” and attacking Evangelical Trump supporters. Similarly, the Associated Press was forced to apologize for falsely claiming that Trump was referring to illegal aliens when he made the “animals” remark....

Well, it's all about the light.XWhat do we mean? A new working paper by Luis R. Martinez of the University of Chicago with the amusing title "How Much Should We Trust the Dictator's GDP Estimates?" explores the unusual, but direct, link between the amount of light produced by an economy — as captured and measured through nighttime satellite photographs — and its GDP.The surprising result: Martinez concludes that economies in authoritarian...

    A Republican lawmaker on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee said Thursday that rocks from the White Cliffs of Dover and the California coastline, as well as silt from rivers tumbling into the ocean, are contributing to high sea levels globally. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) made the comment during a hearing on technology and the changing climate, which largely turned into a Q&A on the basics of climate research. Climate scientist Philip Duffy testified before the panel, addressing lawmakers’ questions about climate change, according to E&E News. "The rate of global sea-level rise has accelerated and is now four...

    WASHINGTON — President Trump and his critics actually agree on something. If a column he read in a magazine is correct, he wrote on Twitter on Thursday, “this is bigger than Watergate!” Never mind that he was thinking of something different than his adversaries when they use the same phrase. Mr. Trump was referring to what he deems a deep-state conspiracy to get him. His detractors are referring to the various scandals swirling around Mr. Trump. Watergate has long been the touchstone for modern American scandal, the mountain of misconduct against which all others are judged. In the 44 years...

    This week the national media performed a real service for the first time in recent memory. They are so comfortable distorting President Trump’s words to horrify the masses that they got careless and exposed themselves on a whole new level. California law enforcement and elected officials met with President Trump at the White House on Wednesday to discuss the impact of the “sanctuary state” policies there. A heavy theme throughout the meeting was the crime committed by illegal immigrants as evidenced by Kate Steinle’s murder in 2015. Her killer had already been deported five times when he fatally shot Steinle,...

    Several news organizations took remarks President Donald Trump made Wednesday out of context to suggest he was referring to undocumented immigrants at large as "animals," when in context it appears the President was likely referring to members of a violent gang. The comment in question happened at a White House roundtable discussion on the subject of immigration and so-called "sanctuary cities." Complaining at the roundtable about confusion between different levels of law enforcement, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims brought up the violent gang Mara Salvatrucha, better known as MS-13. "There could be an MS-13 member I know about -- if...
