Grand Jury Was Ready to Hit Richard Nixon With 4 Criminal Charges, Newly Released Documents Reveal

Wat ergate scandalCourt documents unsealed after nearly 45 years show that a federal grand jury in February 1974 was prepared to indict former GOP President Richard Nixon on four criminal counts for his role in the 1970s Watergate scandal that led to his resignation.

The charges, including bribery, conspiracy, obstruction of justice and obstruction of a criminal investigation, would have been for Nixon and his administration’s attempt to cover up the break-in and wiretapping of the Democratic National Committee headquarters at The Watergate Hotel in D.C.


Trump further stokes immigration fears by saying he'll send 15,000 troops to border

Trump says he might send 15,000 troops to borderDonald Trump has said he is prepared to send as many as 15,000 troops to the US-Mexican border to head off a caravan of Central American migrants, a notion described by rights activists as “a racist ploy”.

The US president floated his latest hardline proposal just two days after announcing the deployment of 5,200 troops to the border and with the midterm elections imminent.

“We’ll do up to anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel on top of border patrol, Ice and everybody else at the border,” the president told reporters at the White House before departing for a campaign rally in Florida. “Nobody’s coming in. We’re not allowing people to come in.”


Interior watchdog referred Zinke probe to Justice days before move to replace agency IG

Ryan Zinke under investigationThe Interior Department’s internal watchdog referred its investigation of Secretary Ryan Zinke to the Department of Justice (DOJ) more than two weeks ago, just days before it was announced that Interior would be getting a Trump political appointee to replace its acting inspector general, two sources confirmed to The Hill.

Ben Carson, head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), told his staff on Oct. 12 that Suzanne Tufts would be leaving HUD to replace Interior's longtime acting inspector general (IG), Mary Kendall — after the watchdog referred its probe to the Justice Department, according to two government sources with knowledge of the timeline.


Has Mueller Subpoenaed the President?

Has Mueller subpoenaed the president?These months before the midterm elections are tough ones for all of us Mueller-watchers. As we expected, he has gone quiet in deference to longstanding Justice Department policy that prosecutors should not take actions that might affect pending elections. Whatever he is doing, he is doing quietly and even further from the public eye than usual.

But thanks to some careful reporting by Politico, which I have analyzed from my perspective as a former prosecutor, we might have stumbled upon How Robert Mueller Is Spending His Midterms: secretly litigating against President Donald Trump for the right to throw him in the grand jury.

Aerospace industryChinese intelligence officers and hackers working for them have been charged with commercial espionage that included trying to steal information on commercial jet engines, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.

Khashogegi was choked and dismembered

Jamal Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and then his body was dismembered, the office of city's chief prosecutor said on Wednesday, in the first official comment in the case that has caused a global outrage.

"In accordance with plans made in advance, the victim, Jamal Khashoggi, was choked to death immediately after entering the Consulate General of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul on October 2, 2018 for marriage formalities," the statement said.


Steve King's white nationalism may finally cost him

Steve King's white nationalism may finally cost himIn the final days before midterms, in a sleepy farm district in ruby red Trump country, the re-election campaign of Iowa Rep. Steve King has become a surprise electoral bellwether for Democrats’ chances of retaking the House.

King, one of the most hard-line Republicans in Congress, was last elected for his eighth term in 2016 with 61 percent of the vote; in 2016, Donald Trump won his county by 27 points. Yet as of Monday, his lead against Democratic challenger J.D. Scholten has narrowed to just one point.

A combination of factors have complicated King’s once-dominant electoral position. For one, Trump’s extreme rhetoric on immigration has turned up the temperature in midterm races across the country, forcing Republicans to take increasingly controversial positions on issues like child detention, militarizing the U.S. border, and birthright citizenship.

Pittsburgh shooting: thousands march to remember victims and denounce Trump's visit

Thousands march to protest Trump's visit

Thousand gathered in Squirrel Hill on Tuesday, to remember those killed at a neighborhood synagogue and to oppose Donald Trump’s visit to Pittsburgh. Expressing their anger and sorrow, many blamed the president for the attack.

Young and old from all walks of life marched to remember the 11 Jewish people who died in the Saturday morning shooting. A suspect appeared in court on Monday.

Nearby, Trump reportedly met Jewish leaders – much to the consternation of those on hand to march. Over loudspeakers, organizers accused the president of emboldening “a growing white nationalist movement” with hateful speech towards Jews and other minorities including African Americans, the LGBTQ community and immigrants.
