    The newly rebellious senator has become an outspoken dissident in Trump’s Republican Party, just in time for the president’s impeachment trial..... Mitt Romney is leaning forward in his chair, his eyes flashing, his voice sharp. It’s a strange look for the 72-year-old senator, who typically affects a measured, somber tone when discussing Donald Trump’s various moral deficiencies. But after weeks of escalating combat with the president—over Ukraine, and China, and Syria, and impeachment—the gentleman from Utah suddenly appears ready to unload.

    Former President Obama called on Canadian voters to reelect the country's embattled prime minister, Justin Trudeau, on Wednesday as Trudeau faces a tough reelection battle marred by racial controversies. In a tweet, the former president harkened back to his time in the White House, commenting that Trudeau was a "hard-working, effective leader" who had led on issues such as climate change.

    Retired Army Master Sgt. Mark Allen has died 10 years after he was shot in the head while searching for deserter Pvt. Bowe Bergdahl in Afghanistan. Allen died on Saturday at the age of 46, according to funeral information posted online. He had been unable to walk or speak since he was a sniper shot him in the head in July 2009 while he was looking for Bergdahl, who had walked off his base in Afghanistan and was held by the Taliban for five years, the Walton Tribune reported. At Bergdahl's trial, Allen's wife Shannon testified that it would take...

    Former President Barack Obama has been hiding from questions about former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter and Hunter’s work for a gas company in Ukraine, President Trump insisted Saturday night. “I think he knows all about it,” Trump said of Obama during an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” […] When Pirro asked why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., wasn’t calling for a formal vote to open an impeachment inquiry, Trump said it was because she “can’t get the votes because we’re [the GOP] doing so well right now.” …

    Newly declassified court documents indicate that the FBI failed to comply with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in targeting Americans while searching through NSA records during President Trump’s administration and after James Comey’s tenure as FBI director. An October 2018 ruling from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) found that the FBI violated Section 702 by not keeping track of searches that pertained to “United States persons,” and that proposed changes were still not enough to comply with the law. That ruling was later affirmed on appeal in July 2019. The documents were declassified and released Tuesday. FISA Section...

    Baltimore police said one of their officers was surrounded by over 100 people in a parking lot in northwest Baltimore later Saturday night. An officer responded shortly before 10 p.m. to the lot at Wabash Avenue and W. Northern Parkway where a “very large group” had gathered with their cars to “partake in illegal activities, police said. The officer got out of his car and approached the group when around 100 to 150 people surrounded the officer, police said. He then called for backup, and when the other officers arrived the crowd dispersed without incident. No one was injured or...

    German car sales enjoyed a strong surge in September, official data showed Wednesday, although the rise was largely attributable to a statistical effect that had weighed on registrations in late 2018. Last month, a total 244,622 vehicles hit the roads, 22.2 percent more than in September 2018, the KBA transport authority said in a statement. Growth has been more modest over the year to date, adding 2.5 percent to reach 2.74 million vehicles between January and September. Over that period, “a higher figure was last achieved in the year 2009,” the VDA industry federation commented in a statement. The German...

  • Virginia sixth-grader now says she falsely accused classmates of cutting her hair

    The sixth-grade girl at a private Virginia school who accused three classmates last week of forcibly cutting her hair now says the allegations were false, according to statements from the girl’s family and the principal at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield. School officials met with the girl and her family Monday morning before releasing the statement. The 12-year-old, who is African American, said three white boy students held her down in a school playground a week ago during recess, covered her mouth, called her insulting names and used scissors to cut her hair. The grandparents of the girl, who are...

    Judicial Watch has made public 90 pages of heavily redacted U.S. Department of State documents showing Obama State Department officials’ efforts to disseminate classified information to multiple U.S. Senators immediately prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The information, which included raw intelligence, purported to show “malign” Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Among the senators receiving the classified documents were Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Robert Corker (R-TN). We obtained the documents through our June 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department after it failed to respond to a...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden called for President Trump to release a transcript of his July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday, amid reports that Ukraine is at the center of a whistleblower's complaint over Trump's contacts with a foreign leader. "If these reports are true, then ... It means that he [Trump] used the power and resources of the United States to pressure a sovereign nation—a partner that is still under direct assault from Russia—pushing Ukraine to subvert the rule of law in the express hope of extracting a political favor." — Biden's statement on Friday...

    In June of 2017, then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decried leaks and said “Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials’ …” “Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations,”Rosenstein warned in a June 2017 statement. “The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations.” BuzzFeed obtained through FOIA a tranche of emails from the Justice Department showing Rosenstein offering to be one of the ‘anonymous officials.’ About two weeks before Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel, he emailed a reporter [named redacted by BuzzFeed] and told them...

    A Long Island teen was fatally stabbed at a strip mall near his high school as dozens of other students pulled out their cellphones to record the melee rather than to help him, police said. Khaseen Morris, a 16-year-old senior at Oceanside High School, was stabbed once in the chest Monday afternoon during an apparent dispute over a girl. He later died at a hospital after many of the 50 to 70 teens who gathered nearby recorded the bloody attack and made no attempt to stop it, Nassau County police said at a news conference Tuesday. “Kids stood there and...

    At the very moment when the issue of race might at long last have been put to rest, it is now becoming the most important issue of all. The decades since the 1960s saw the growth of “black studies” in American universities. The courses started out in part as a way of de-stigmatizing the group and educating people about a crucial aspect of their history. But, just as a popular strand of feminism turned from celebrating women to vilifying men, a portion of black studies started attacking people who were not black. A discipline intended to de-stigmatize began to re-stigmatize....

    Police say it's called “finessing.” Packs of teens begin their late-night hunts in downtown Minneapolis, looking for lone drunks, people distracted by cell phones, prey that won't fight back. One person will strike up a conversation with a target. A moment later, the victim will be jumped, punched, and kicked into the pavement by the others. It is the ultimate moron crime. In exchange for the risk of felony assault and robbery charges, all they're usually walking away with is a cellphone and a wallet already emptied at a bar. The phones are later sold at automated kiosks like ECO...

    Catholicism preaches forgiveness, but this might be a tough ask. The face of a Virgin Mary statue outside a Downtown Jersey City church was found covered with dog feces and the depraved vandal added a cigarette to the desecration. The vandalism was reported by a parishioner who was entering St. Michael Church on Ninth Street just before the daily midday Mass, said the Rev. Thomas Quinn, the pastor. “I was shocked, saddened and angry,” Quinn said. “Without a doubt it was the work of someone who is emotionally disturbed. Still, there was some degree of deliberation there.”
