The candidates were: Cory Booker, Beto O'Rourke, Elizabeth Warren, Julián Castro, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, Tim Ryan, John Delaney, Bill de Blasio, and Jay Inslee.
The Latest on the trial of a decorated Navy SEAL charged with killing an Islamic State prisoner in his care (all times local): 1:30 p.m. Officials have informed a Navy SEAL witness that he could face a perjury charge after he testified that he — and not Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher— had killed an Islamic State prisoner in Iraq. In an email sent Tuesday to a lawyer for Special Operator First Class Corey Scott, the Navy said it was considering charging Scott with lying under oath during Gallagher's court-martial.
President Trump touted his decision to call off a strike against Iran in an interview on Fox Business Network Wednesday morning. The aborted strike came after the U.S. military accused Iran of shooting down an American drone over international waters on June 20. Trump called off the operation minutes before it was set to begin because he was told it would kill 150 Iranians and felt that was not a proportionate response.
A missing University of Utah student was last seen by a Lyft driver meeting someone in a car in a park, Salt Lake City police said Monday. Lueck then texted her parents to let them know she had landed and took a Lyft to Hatch Park in North Salt Lake City, arriving there at 2:59 a.m., he added. “The Lyft driver left Mackenzie at the park with that person and stated that Mackenzie did not appear to be in any kind of distress.” Lyft told CBS News in a statement that it is “actively assisting law enforcement with their investigation.” There were no irrregularities in Lueck's Lyft ride and her driver immediately began picking up other customers after dropping her off, the company added.
US drones have been a key tool in conflicts against insurgent organizations such as the Taliban and the Islamic State group, but Iran's downing of one of the aircraft highlights their limitations against more sophisticated adversaries. "I believe sophisticated air defenses will continue to have good chances to shoot down an aircraft like an RQ-4 whenever it is in position to do meaningful surveillance of their territories or other assets," he said, referring to the type of drone brought down by Iran last week near the strategic Strait of Hormuz.

But we also found some big differences in how easy each grill is to use and control. Some require constant adjustments to fine-tune temperature; others can be set and left alone for hours, which is exactly what you want when you're cooking a brisket. Our grill buying guide is a great place to start if you want to understand the differences between kamado and traditional charcoal grills.
WASHINGTON/SEATTLE, June 26 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has identified a new risk that Boeing Co must address on its 737 MAX before the grounded jet can return to service, the agency said on Wednesday. The FAA did not elaborate on the latest setback for Boeing, which has been working to get its best-selling airplane back in the air following a worldwide grounding in March in the wake of two deadly crashes within five months. The new issue means Boeing will not conduct a certification test flight until July 8 in a best-case scenario, the sources said, but one source cautioned it could face further delays beyond that.
In what amounted to a face-off at the U.N's top human rights body, Ambassador Abdulaziz Alwasil insisted that special rapporteur Agnes Callamard had failed to follow proper procedures and used flawed sourcing in her 101-page report made public last week. "Accusations have been launched, and fingers have been pointed — (she is) supporting herself on non-credible articles or sources," he told the Human Rights Council, in Arabic through a U.N. interpreter. The report by Callamard, an independent expert on extrajudicial and arbitrary killings, alleged that Saudi Arabia bears responsibility for The Washington Post columnist's grisly apparent dismemberment by Saudi agents at the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul in October.
The United Arab Emirates appeared to distance itself from U.S. claims that pinned attacks on oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz on Iran. Honestly we can't point the blame at any country because we don't have evidence,” Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan said on Wednesday in Moscow. If there is a country that has the evidence, then I'm convinced that the international community will listen to it.
Husband Timothy Crouch, 57, is accused of a misdemeanor count of obstruction of investigation of child abuse or neglect, according to court records. Both suspects were in custody on a no-bond hold Tuesday at the San Juan County Adult Detention Center. A San Juan County Sheriff's Office investigation found allegations that children who did not go to school also did not get enough food to eat and were ordered to hide from social workers.
A divided House voted on Tuesday to send $4.5bn (£3.5bn) in humanitarian aid to the border to address horrific conditions facing a crush of migrants, attaching significant rules on how the money could be spent in the first action by Democrats to rein in Donald Trump's immigration crackdown. But the package — which passed by a vote of 230-195 nearly along party lines, only after Democratic leaders toughened restrictions on the money to win over liberal sceptics — faces a tough path to enactment. A similar measure with many fewer strings binding Mr Trump has drawn bipartisan support in the Senate.
In a somewhat bizarre, and yet entertaining, new commercial, Arnold Schwarzenegger goes “undercover” and tries to convince prospective EV buyers to get a gas-powered car instead. The ad itself was put together by Veloz, a California non-profit keen on accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles across the country. The ad is essentially a tongue-in-cheek effort to extol the virtues of electric cars by highlighting the drawbacks of traditional gas-powered vehicles.
Venezuela's socialist government said Wednesday it has derailed an attempted coup, claiming the United States, Colombia and Chile colluded in a plot by officers to assassinate President Nicolas Maduro and install a general in his place, a minister said. Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez said the plan involved both active and retired army officers and was to have been executed between Sunday and Monday this past weekend. He accused Colombia's right-wing President Ivan Duque of "planning coups, assassinations of the president" as well as implicating Chile's conservative President Sebastian Pinera and US National Security Advisor John Bolton in the plot.
Slowing global economic growth and demand concerns have WTI crude oil prices down more than 20% from a year ago. Oil investors were hoping for much higher prices in 2019 than the mid $50s per barrel, and the energy sector has once again lagged the market significantly this year. Bank of America analyst Doug Leggate recently lowered his oil price forecast for the second half of 2019 from $68 per barrel to $63, but Leggate says there are still plenty of value opportunities among oil stocks today.
The single day sale through RM Sotheby's is set for September 28th in Ohio. John Dixon's obsession with the Porsche models started when he was passed by a 911 in his muscle car in high school - from there, he was blown away by the car. The Taj Ma Garaj collection is now considered to be one of the most eclectic Porsche and Volkswagen collections, along with Porsche unobtainium, rare literature, collectibles, engines, and an assortment of arcade ephemera.

The head of the Massachusetts motor vehicle division has resigned for failing to terminate the commercial driving license of man whose collision with a group of motorcyclists in New Hampshire left seven dead. Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, on Tuesday pleaded not guilty to seven counts of negligent homicide.

Sri Lanka's president on Wednesday signed death sentences for four people convicted of drug-related offences in a decision analysts said is aimed at boosting his chances of re-election later this year. Maithripala Sirisena was elected as a reformist in January 2015, but has struggled to fulfill pledges including addressing human rights abuses, eliminating corruption and ensuring good governance. He has been under increasing pressure since a political crisis last year, and more recently faced criticism for his handling of Easter Sunday bomb attacks that killed more than 250 people.
Salt Lake City police are searching for a University of Utah senior who has been missing for a week, though at this point, they do not suspect foul play. Mackenzie Lueck, 23, landed at Salt Lake City International Airport early on June 17 after visiting family in California.

Donald Trump has said that a woman who claimed to have been raped by him more than 20 years ago is “not my type”. The US president made the comment as he again denied an alleged sexual assault on the journalist E Jean Carroll. Carroll said the incident happened in a dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman a luxury New York department store in the mid-1990s.
It seems that Dodge is working on a widebody version of the Charger sedan, as previewed by this "concept" version that, to our eye, looks to be close to production. Like the Challenger Widebody, this version of the Charger is exactly what its name suggests: a Charger with a wider body. If the Charger Widebody does reach production, expect it to have a different wheel and tire setup to provide improved handling and more cornering grip.
Hong Kong protesters marched to major consulates on Wednesday in a call for G20 nations to confront fellow member China over sliding freedoms in the financial hub, at a weekend summit in Japan. The semi-autonomous city has been shaken by huge demonstrations this month, with protesters demanding the withdrawal of a bill that would allow extraditions to the Chinese mainland. The massive rallies are the latest manifestation of growing fears that China is stamping down on the city's unique freedoms and culture.
