    The leader of a cult in Japan whose followers released deadly gas in the Tokyo subway in 1995, killing 13 people and injuring thousands, was executed Friday. The cult leader, Shoko Asahara, was one of 13 people sentenced to death in connection with the attack and other killings carried out by the group, Aum Shinrikyo. He was hanged Friday morning along with six followers, Japan’s Justice Ministry said. Japan, which generally reserves capital punishment for people convicted of multiple homicides, usually executes a handful of people each year. The date of executions is not announced in advance, and the condemned...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump urged Republicans lawmakers on Friday to drop their efforts to pass comprehensive immigration legislation until after the November elections that he hopes will see more party members voted into Congress. The Republican president, faced with a public outcry over his policy that separated children from their migrant parents at the U.S. border with Mexico, tried to refocus the immigration debate on Congress in a series of early posts on Twitter. Despite Republican control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate, the party’s slim 51-49 majority in the latter chamber makes some...

    Greg Rinckey, an attorney specializing in military law, said it was rare for an officer out of West Point to receive an other-than-honorable discharge. He added that it was also possible the military academy could seek repayment of the cost of Rapone’s education because he did not serve the full five-year service obligation required upon graduation.

    Friday morning Donald Trump said in an interview on Fox News that he would not support a "moderate" GOP immigration bill that would allow most DREAMers to stay in the U.S. and reduce the number of children separated from their parents at the border. The conservative alternative was heavy on border security and enforcement.But later, the White House walked back that rejection, saying the president was "confused" and would sign the bill.The chaos only added to GOP worries about the issue of immigration, which has split the party in two in the House.Associated Press: Earlier this week, House Speaker...

    One of the interesting aspects of the IG report is the documented use of personal email by participants within the FBI “small group” Mid-Year-Exam (MYE) team. [pg 424] One of those documented examples involves FBI Agent Peter Strzok downloading the content of the sealed Anthony Weiner Indictment, October 29, 2016, to his personal email address. Unauthorized extraction of a ‘sealed SDNY indictment‘, and transmission to a non-secure system, is a felony.

    The police captain who told sheriff's deputies to 'stage' and form a perimeter outside Stoneman Douglas High School as students and teachers were shot inside on February 14 is being replaced. Jan Jordan, 49, was in charge of deputies who responded to the first calls of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, on February 14. She will be removed from her position, which will instead be taken up by an officer of a higher rank, Fox News reported on Thursday. The move to replace Jordan with a major was made as part of the city's re-evaluation of its contract with the...

Law enforcement agents entered the apartment and the 26-year-old man attacked them, police said. The man also stabbed the police dog, which later died of its injuries.

    Jarrett called the attacks a “teaching moment” in a clip from an MSNBC special on race relations that airs Tuesday night. “I’m fine,” Jarrett said. “I’m worried about all the people out there who don’t have a circle of friend and followers who come right to their defense, the person who’s walking down the street minding their own business and they see somebody cling to their purse or want to cross the street. Or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation, the talk as we call it.” Jarrett continued,...

    Redactions, the blacked-out portions that appear in many government documents, are making it difficult for Congress to do its oversight work, says Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). In a letter [1] to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Wednesday, Grassley wrote: "Please provide unredacted copies of all text messages" between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page "to the Committee no later than June 6, 2018." Grassley said some of the redactions "may contain relevant information relating to the Committee's ongoing investigation into the manner in which the Department of Justice and FBI handled the Clinton and Russia...

    Michael Avenatti, the revolting left-wing lawyer who has been the darling of cable news with more than 100 appearances, garnering $175 million's worth of free publicity, got slapped with a $10-million fine from some judge fed up with his failure to pay his bills. Avenatti, whose stated mission is some grandiose quest to expose the supposed awfulness of President Trump, promised and promised to make payments to the IRS and fellow lawyers in his other business dealings – and then ran out on his tab. Had enough? The Los Angeles Times has an excellent rundown about this guy: A law...

    A Florida woman flashed a carefree smile in her mug shot — despite the possibility of facing manslaughter charges for allegedly crashing her car while drunk and killing a 60-year-old woman. The accident happened in Ocala just before noon May 10, when boozed-up driver Agenette Marie Welk rammed into the back of a 2017 Hyundai Elantra with her 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche on US Route 27, according to Villages News. The impact sent the Hyundai — driven by 18-year-old Shiyanne Kroll, whose mother, Sandra Clarkson, was in the passenger seat — hurtling toward the tractor-trailer in front of it. Kroll’s car...

    In the fight against terrorist financing, drug trafficking, money-laundering and tax evasion, Australia has moved to ban the use of cash in any transactions over $10,000 by next year, moving the Down Under that much closer to becoming a digital currency society. In a move lauded by Treasurer Scott Morrison as “bad news for criminal gangs, terrorists, and those who just trying to cheat on their tax …”, the government is eyeing the surveillance potential of large transactions made by checks or credit cards connected to banks and hoping to cut down on crime in the process. The ban will...

    Chris Cillizza, a political analyst for CNN, deleted a tweet he sent out Tuesday that included an image appearing to show President Trump in crosshairs. In a separate tweet, Cillizza said the graphic was unintended and the result of a computer program he and his team used. "I’ve deleted a GIF about President Trump," he wrote. "We use @GifGrabber to make our GIFs and it defaults to the image below as a first frame. To clear up any unintended confusion, I’ve removed the tweet." A GIF is a type of digital graphic that sometimes show motion in the image. Cillizza...

    The California Assembly discussed Thursday a bill that would replace Abraham Lincoln or George Washington’s birthday with International Socialist Workers’ Day as a paid holiday. California Democrat Assemblyman Miguel Santiago introduced Bill AB-3042, which would allow schools to replace Washington Day and Lincoln Day with Presidents’ Day and install an “International Workers’ Day” — conventionally known as “May Day” — as a second holiday. “I’m aghast that a bill like this would be able to get through committee,” California Republican Assemblyman Matthew Harper said to the Assembly. “Are we in competition to be the laughing stock of the United States?”...

"Police are currently responding to what I can only describe as a horrific incident," Western Australia state police commissioner Chris Dawson told the Associated Press. "This devastating tragedy will no doubt have a lasting impact on the families concerned, the whole community...

    This is the intersectional equivalent of a car wreck. It all took place in a Cornell class titled “Acting in Public” which seems to be a relatively normal speech class based on the syllabus. Last week, a student named Letitia Chai was set to do a practice run of her senior thesis but, for reasons explained below, wound up giving it in her underwear. The crisis began when her professor pointed out that Chai’s cut-off jean shorts might not be ideal for a major presentation. From the Cornell Daily Sun: “The first thing that the professor said to me...
