    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday issued a pardon for the late boxer Jack Johnson, an African-American convicted a century ago for the crime of taking a woman across state lines, saying the move corrected a wrong in American history. The heavyweight champion was arrested in 1912 with Lucille Cameron, a white woman who would later become his wife, for violating the Mann Act, a law that had passed two years earlier in response to a morality campaign.

    Britain's last surviving Dambuster says he still misses his crewman as they are remembered on the 75th anniversary of the iconic WWII raids. Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, George 'Johnny' Johnson says he feels lucky to still be alive as he turns 96 later this year.

It kind of traumatized me.” He was painting the interior of...

    Chicago's police superintendent on Saturday blasted efforts for greater civilian oversight of the department, citing "real progress" in fighting crime -- just hours after at least eight people were reportedly wounded in overnight shootings. Hours later, two men were slain on the city's South Side, the Chicago Tribune reported. Proposals by the city's leading community organizations call for greater oversight by a seven-member civilian board called the Commission for Public Safety and Accountability, the Chicago Tribune reported. But Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said no one consulted him or anyone in the CPD for the year and a half it...

    While Barry Johnson remains surprised that he vanquished two-term incumbent Abel Reyna by 20 percentage points, he is turning his attention to the general election for McLennan County district attorney and wondering if he will have one opponent or two. Johnson, 61, easily defeated Reyna, 45, by 59.9 percent to 40.1 percent in the Republican primary Tuesday, lining him up for a November showdown with independent candidate Daniel Hare. Seth Sutton entered the race as a Democrat but suspended his campaign last month, citing personal and professional responsibilities as reasons for the move. His name remained on Tuesday’s Democratic ballot....

    Intelligence officials can selectively release classified information to trusted journalists while withholding the same information from other citizens who request it through open records laws, CIA lawyers argued Wednesday. ....The judge in the case appeared to find Johnson’ argument compelling. In a court order last month, Chief Judge Colleen McMahon of the Southern District of New York said FOIA laws do not authorize limited disclosure, to favored journalists or otherwise. “In this case, CIA voluntarily disclosed to outsiders information that it had a perfect right to keep private,” she wrote. “There is absolutely no statutory provision that authorizes limited disclosure...

    A new batch of text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page revealed President Barack Obama wanted updates on the bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, according a report released Wednesday. On Sept. 2, 2016 — just weeks away from election day — Ms. Page texted Mr. Strzok, her lover, about preparing a report for then-FBI Director James B. Comey because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” That raises questions about Mr. Obama’s involvement in the Clinton investigation, the report said. The message were released in a report by Sen. Ron Johnson,...

    Sen. Ron Johnson said Thursday that he does not support investigating accusations against President Trump for sexual assault because the voters have already cast their ballots. “Trump’s problems were vetted during the campaign,” Mr. Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, said on CNN. “The American people elected President Trump.” The senator said that if a new accusation were made during Mr. Trump’s presidency, then Congress should investigate that claim, but the senator said the voters have made their judgment with these allegations out in the public. Four women have come forward in recent days to retell their stories of sexual misconduct regarding Mr....
