John Kelly speaks outOfficially out of the White House, former chief of staff John Kelly spoke freely Wednesday about the Trump administration and its policies.

Speaking at Duke University, Kelly most notably diverged from his former boss on matters of immigration.

A Tennessee clinic swindled the military out of $65M. This is how it got caught

Tennessee clinic swindled mililtaryBill Schneid stood in his home office, holding a package of skin cream worth more than gold. He didn't know exactly what he had stumbled on, but he was pretty sure it was illegal.
