Senior Democrats said Thursday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's long-awaited report revealed a two-year campaign of obstruction by President Donald Trump, and vowed to hold him accountable. "Even in its incomplete form, the Mueller report outlines disturbing evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction of justice and other misconduct," said Representative Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. Attorney General Bill Barr on Thursday released the redacted 400-page report after already announcing that it showed no proof that Trump colluded with Russian intelligence to tilt the 2016 presidential election.

While the broader healthcare sector remains under pressure -- S&P 500 health care names have lost more than 6 percent over the past three days in their biggest drop since December -- managed care's sell-off appears to have abated for now with S&P 500 insurer names now little changed intraday.

Donald Trump has taken another step towards reversing Barack Obama's historic rapprochement with Cuba with a measure that earned swift criticism from allies in Canada and Europe. The US announced on Wednesday that it would enable lawsuits against foreign companies that use properties nationalised by the communist government after Fidel Castro's 1959 revolution. The policy shift, which could draw hundreds of thousands of legal claims worth tens of billion of dollars, aims to put pressure on Cuba at a moment when the US is demanding an end to Havana's support for Venezuela's socialist president, Nicolás Maduro.

The final result of the March 31 local elections gave a wafer-thin majority to the secularist opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) in Turkey's commercial hub, ending 25 years of control by the AK Party (AKP) and its Islamist predecessors. The loss is especially hard for Erdogan who launched his political career in Istanbul as mayor in the 1990s and has triumphed in more than a dozen parliamentary, presidential and local polls since his party came to power in 2002. The Turkish lira, which has dipped since the election, firmed on Wednesday.
The official, who spoke anonymously because of the ongoing probe, said investigators made an initial assessment Wednesday but have not been given the OK to work through the rubble because of safety reasons. Officials said early on that it was possible the blaze was linked to a $6.8 million renovation project at the 850-year-old landmark. The blaze collapsed the cathedral's iconic spire, most of the roof was ravaged, and the damage to the 12th-century building elsewhere was extensive. But its twin bell towers, rose windows, 18-century organ and precious artworks were saved.

Catholics and tourists who can no longer approach Notre-Dame after Monday's devastating fire will be consoled by an “ephemeral cathedral” made of wood until the stricken cathedral reopens, its chief priest has announced. Notre-Dame's 12 million annual visitors will still be able to marvel at Europe's most visited historic building from the outside, but Monseigneur Patrick Chauvet said for the faithful something more was needed. Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, has backed the idea, he said.

Some states, including Florida, require purchasers to be 21 to purchase long guns.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to tease a Kentucky Republican lawmaker for backpedaling on his invitation for her to visit the Bluegrass State. The freshman New York Democrat – often referred to as "AOC" – used her Twitter platform Wednesday to again call attention to Rep. Andy Barr, who invited her to the state last month to tour an underground coal mine. Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, now says she similarly asked Barr to come to the Bronx, which is part of her New York district, to participate in a town hall on climate change.
