The morning after his interview with President Donald Trump, which featured the president bizarrely playing out the cognitive test he purportedly aced, Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel gushed over Trump's “great” memory and how “extremely sharp” the president is. Speaking to Siegel on Wednesday, Trump once again boasted about his “perfect mark” on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which is administered to judge whether a patient is suffering dementia or cognitive decline. At one point, Trump attempted to prove how difficult the test's questions are by reenacting the memory recall portion.
In November 2004, while on a combat mission in Iraq, Tammy Duckworth lost both her legs when a rocket-propelled grenade hit the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter she was co-piloting. Duckworth, a captain in the Illinois Army National Guard at the time and now a U.S. senator from Illinois, was the first American female double amputee of the Iraq War. Marissa Strock lost both her legs when her Humvee team was hit by a command-detonated IED.
However, Judge Lee said that the materials police sought were critical for their investigation into the alleged theft of police guns and suspected arson to police vehicles, thus removing the protections of the shield law, the paper reported. Seattle Police Department issued a subpoena on June 16 to The Seattle Times newspaper, as well as local TV stations KIRO 7, KING 5, KOMO 4 and KCPQ 13, asking for all footage and pictures — published and unpublished — taken at a protest on May 30.

The complicated legal history of the case against Amy Locane includes three sentences imposed by two judges, as well as numerous appeals. It stems from a crash in March 2010 that killed Helene Seeman and seriously injured her husband, Fred, as they turned into their driveway in Montgomery Township in central New Jersey. This week, an appeals court ruled that a different judge incorrectly resentenced her last year, and sent the case back for another sentencing.
Alabama prisons have used ”cruel and unusual punishment” on inmates by allowing correctional officers to perform routine beatings, the Department of Justice (DOJ) said following an investigation. “Our investigation found reasonable cause to believe that there is a pattern or practice of using excessive force against prisoners in Alabama's prisons for men,” Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband for the department's Civil Rights Division said. An investigation of 13 Alabama prisons found that 12 of them had correctional officers using excessive, and sometimes deadly, force on inmates that violated their Constitutional rights.
Two of the British ISIS terrorists dubbed the “Beatles” further incriminated themselves in the mistreatment of Western hostages in Syria, including Americans Kayla Mueller and James Foley, in interviews obtained exclusively by NBC News. In the interviews, the two men, Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, for the first time admitted their involvement in the captivity of Kayla, an aid worker who was tortured and sexually abused before her death in 2015. Kotey said, "She was in a room by herself that no one would go in."

A Chinese researcher who took refuge from U.S. authorities at China's consulate in San Francisco is now in American custody and is expected to appear in court on Monday, U.S. Justice Department officials said.

She was charged with visa fraud on June 26.
Senator Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) introduced a law on Thursday that would prohibit federal funding for schools that incorporate curriculum from the New York Times's “1619 Project.” The 1619 Project, named after the year when colonists first brought slaves to the U.S., attempts to retell American history by emphasizing the importance of slavery in the country's earliest years. “The New York Times's 1619 Project is a racially divisive, revisionist account of history that denies the noble principles of freedom and equality on which our nation was founded,” Cotton said in a statement.
President Donald Trump got just about as introspective as he's capable of getting during an interview with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy this week at the White House. “There are times when I love it,” Trump said with a smile. “Too much sometimes, right?” After getting his social-media guru Dan Scavino to confirm his current total number of followers, the president boasted about his “very big voice” in the face of “fake news,” adding: “It's been very important for me.”
The Taliban are prepared to hold peace talks with the Afghan government next month straight after the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, the insurgents said Thursday, provided an ongoing prisoner swap has been completed. The development comes amid soaring violence that has threatened to derail US-backed efforts to bring Kabul and the Taliban to the negotiating table and seek an end to Afghanistan's nearly 19-year-old war. The Taliban are "likely ... ready to begin intra-Afghan negotiations immediately after Eid in case the process of the release of the prisoners is completed," the insurgents' political spokesman Suhail Shaheen said on Twitter.

On Friday, one of the study authors apologized after the hashtag took off on Twitter.
The Minneapolis City Council voted Friday to shift police media duties away from the Police Department to city communications staff, in what one of the proposal's authors called a small move designed to improve trust following the death of George Floyd. The move was approved 9-3, over objections of some council members who wanted to table it for further discussion. The initial police news release about Floyd's May 25 death, released by spokesman John Elder, said Floyd “appeared to be suffering medical distress” after he resisted arrest and was handcuffed.
The Washington Post and Nick Sandmann have settled a libel and slander lawsuit stemming from coverage of the Kentucky teen, who became the center of a social media firestorm last year.

CCTV footage from a Florida convenience store has shown the suspects arrested in connection with a fishing trip “massacre” in the same store as one of the victims just before they were murdered. William "Robert" Wiggins, 21, Tony “TJ” Wiggins, 26, and Mary Whittemore, 27, were arrested in connection with the murder of 23-year-old Damion Tillman, 30-year-old Keven Springfield, and 27-year-old Brandon Rollins on 17 July, police announced on Wednesday. The footage, shared by Polk Sheriff Grady Judd, shows the suspects: two brothers and a girlfriend, inside the Dollar General store in Frostproof, Florida.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Thursday that there was a high likelihood of another round of cash payments for Americans. As expanded unemployment benefits are set to expire amid a new increase in jobless claims, lawmakers appear to be nearing consensus with the White House about how to further aid the United States' ailing economy. In an interview with CNBC on Thursday morning, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said a Republican bill would extend a reduced level of federal unemployment income and include a second round of $1,200 direct payments very similar to those sent four months ago.
The Republican coronavirus relief bill includes no local aid, smaller unemployment benefits and $20 billion for farmers.
After practically ignoring President Donald Trump oddly wishing an accused sex trafficker “well,” Fox News finally broached the subject Thursday morning in an interview with White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. While reviving his daily coronavirus briefings in an attempt to reverse his sagging approval ratings on the pandemic, Trump was asked on Tuesday if he felt longtime Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell would “turn in powerful men” following her arrest. More than 24 hours later, Fox anchor Bret Baier brought up the president's well-wishes to McEnany, noting how Maxwell was charged with recruiting and sexually abusing underage girls.
The Republican silence on what's happening in Portland is jarring: If you've followed American politics over the last 10 years, you might be surprised that Republicans are more outraged at Liz Cheney than they are federal armed agents that just tear-gassed a city's mayor. It's easy to understand in our current politics why elected Republicans aren't speaking out against the Department of Homeland Security forces in liberal, urban Portland. One party believes that discrimination of Blacks and Latinos exists (between 80 and 90 percent of Democrats say this); the other party doesn't (just 15 to 26 percent of Republicans).
