    Accused Florida airport gunman Esteban Santiago had his guns seized twice by authorities before the Jan. 6 massacre, including a reported confiscation four years ago in Puerto Rico – but on both occasions investigations were closed and Santiago’s guns were returned to him. Santiago, 26, had a gun or guns taken by Penuelas police in Puerto Rico more than four years ago, The Florida Sun-Sentinel reported on Friday, though the reason for the action wasn’t immediately clear. “It had to be some kind of complaint,” police press officer Edward Ramirez said.

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said it's unlikely that he will ever seek public office again, including the presidency, and said he wants to return to private life and his business career. Bush made the remarks while teaching a two-week course on governors at Texas A&M University. He said he is focused on his work to reform education and on his businesses, which he rejoined after his failed presidential bid concluded in February after the South Carolina Primary. "I unraveled everything I was doing to prepare for this - you don't do that lightly," Bush said. "I just think this...

Rubio's tough questioning Wednesday of Rex Tillerson, Trump's pick for secretary of state, and unresolved doubts about the former ExxonMobil chief's nomination, present him with a set of provocative political choices.

A paragraph deep in the story mentions that investigators recovered Santiago’s computer from a pawn shop and the FBI is examining it to determine whether he created a “jihadist identity for himself...

And remember, his vote counts more than most: He’s a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which will...
