    President Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen blasted the chief executive’s COVID-19 diagnosis Friday, claiming that the White House is to blame. “Trump is now COVID-positive because of ignorance and arrogance,” Cohen told reporters from the BBC and his homedown Daily News.

[…] Cohen called the president “reckless” for not taking more precautions. “This whole situation is tragic in that this was all preventable,” he said....

    enator Mitt Romney (R-UT) criticized the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic Friday during video an interview with the Sutherland Institute. Romney said, “I think it’s fair to say we really have not distinguished ourselves in a positive way by how we responded to the crisis when it was upon us. And the proof of the pudding of that is simply that we have 5 percent of the world’s population but 25 percent of the world’s deaths due to COVID-19. And there’s no way to spin that in a positive light.”

'He strongly implied that something improper had occurred around her removal as our top diplomat in Kyiv,' Engel said. The call, on September 23, came just a few days...

The House is set to impeach Trump Wednesday night on two articles charging him with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The Senate will hold a trial in January, and Democrats and Republicans are...

He said the snake, which appeared to have minor injuries, pulled itself free after a few minutes and slithered out of...

The incident took place in Speedwell, Tennessee last week, where Jimmie Nelson lives with Shelly, his adopted shelter cat. Nelson says he heard a noise in the middle of the night. At the time, he thought it was just Shelly being playful. Two days later, however, he realized what the commotion was about.

    FALLS, Pa. — A Pennsylvania woman used a shovel to kill a cobra she saw slithering on the patio of her apartment.

Her apartment complex in Falls, Wyoming County, just northwest of Scranton, is the same one where officials removed 20 venomous snakes from...
