    Recently we reported that Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe was under investigation by the FBI and prosecutors from the Justice Department's integrity unit regarding donations to McAuliffe's campaign during his time as a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative. Specifically, investigators were scrutinizing a $120,000 donation McAuliffe received from Wang Wenliang, a Chinese businessman, who was also a donor to the Clinton foundation, pledging $2 million. The Daily Mail has obtained footage that shows the two men entering Hillary Clinton's residence off D.C.'s Embassy row as they attended a fundraiser on September 30, 2013.

    Memorials to veterans in a Los Angeles neighborhood and a town in Kentucky, as well as a Civil War veterans cemetery in Virginia, were damaged as the nation prepares to mark Memorial Day, officials said. A Vietnam War memorial in the Venice area of Los Angeles has been extensively defaced by graffiti. The vandalism occurred sometime during the past week, KCAL/KCBS-TV reported. The homespun memorial painted on a block-long wall on Pacific Avenue lists the names of American service members missing in action or otherwise unaccounted for in Southeast Asia. News of the vandalism came as another veterans-related memorial was...

    Editorial: Kaine would be perfect fit on Democratic ticket Posted: Saturday, May 28, 2016 10:30 pm 1960 remains the exception that proves the rule. Vice presidential candidates seldom make a decisive difference in general elections. Lyndon Johnson’s presence on the ticket may have put John Kennedy in the White House. Johnson carried Texas for the Democrats and likely contributed their victories in Missouri and North Carolina. Without a Southern running mate, the Massachusetts senator probably would have lost to Richard Nixon. 2016 already has established itself as an idiosyncratic election. Crackpots dominated the Republican sweepstakes. The heavily favored Hillary Clinton...

    Lobbying law cited in McAuliffe probe sees few prosecutions By GRAHAM MOOMAW AND ROBERT ZULLO Richmond Times-Dispatch | Posted: Saturday, May 28, 2016 10:00 pm Criminal prosecutions under the obscure foreign-lobbying law said to be at the center of the federal investigation into Gov. Terry McAuliffe are exceedingly rare. In the past 50 years, prosecutors have brought just seven cases. If the probe leads to charges against McAuliffe under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA — which he says will not happen, because investigators have no evidence of a violation — the Democratic governor would be the highest-profile figure...

He’d texted to say that she should pick up their son from kindergarten, and then this: “So sorry baby. I love you all.” Hours later, two police officers showed up at their house in Virginia Beach with news that Dave, 45, had shot himself in his truck a few miles away. Although Jennifer had held out hope for any other explanation, she also knew the moment she read it what the text meant. For months,...

    Just a few months ago, mothers in Flint, Michigan prohibited their kids from taking baths after actor Mark Ruffalo claimed the city's water contained dangerous levels of chloroform. Virginia Tech Professor Marc Edwards, who initially blew the whistle on the Flint water lead-poisoning, compared the incident to "someone shouting fire in a crowded movie theater." "Mr. Ruffalo became an opportunist, a pseudo-scientist, and he started telling people outrageous things," said Marc Edwards. "He claimed that you could breathe lead through the water in the showers… and that they found dangerous chemicals in Flint water heaters." Although at first the Professor...

    Hillary Clinton met with the Chinese businessman at the center of a federal investigation into Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D.) during a 2013 fundraiser at her Washington, D.C. home, according to a Time report. Clinton shook hands with Wang Wenliang during the Sept. 30 event. Less than a month later, Wang would donate $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation, ultimately pledging a total of $2 million to the foundation throughout the year. McAuliffe, who was on the board of the Clinton Global Initiative, invited Wang to the fundraiser three weeks after one of the businessman’s companies, West Legend Corp., contributed $60,000...

He served as Clinton's handpicked chair of the Democratic National Committee. Hillary Clinton was an early and enthusiastic supporter of McAuliffe's run for governor in 2013. Several of McAuliffe's key campaign staffers have graduated to the Clinton campaign.. McAuliffe has denied any wrongdoing and said "Investigations happen, no...

The count in September 2015 stood at 257 electoral votes for the Democrat and 206 electoral votes for the Republican, with five battleground states worth 75 electoral votes. Where is the race today as we near the end of the primary process? Based on current polling and primary results, Clinton likely would win the presidency...

There were eyebrow-raising investments: a shaky bank in Washington; an insider deal for shares in a telecom that went spectacularly bust; financing...

Cosby decided to waive his right to a formal arraignment after the judge's decision, which would have taken place on July 20.

Among other revelations made by Cosby under questioning by lawyers for Andrea Constand, who claims he sexually assaulted her in 2004, was the description of a 1976 encounter with a 19-year-old model named Therese Picking.

    Video Published on Apr 22, 2016 WASHINGTON — Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia will use his executive power on Friday to restore voting rights to more than 200,000 convicted felons, circumventing his Republican-run legislature. The action will overturn a Civil War-era provision in the state’s Constitution aimed, he said, at disenfranchising African-Americans.

    PARIS — With its guffawing masculine hilarity, the National Assembly, France’s lower house of Parliament, would not be put to shame by the most boisterous American state legislature.

The Assembly’s vice president, Denis Baupin, was forced to resign after several women came forward publicly with accusations that he had sexually harassed numerous female colleagues for years. One said Mr. Baupin had pushed her against a wall, grabbed one of her breasts and tried...

"The court's mission is to judge not the wisdom of the Virginia voter ID law, but rather its constitutionality," wrote U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson in his decision. While he noted that the measure created an "inconvenience"...
