President Trump on Monday stepped gleefully into a name-calling dispute between Hillary Clinton and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard over Clinton's insinuation that Gabbard was fronting for the Russians in her long-shot presidential campaign. “Anybody that is opposed to her is a Russian agent, so that's a scam that was pretty much put down. In an interview on the podcast of former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe published last week, Clinton expressed her concerns about possible Russian interference in the 2020 election.

Spain will on Thursday remove the 1.5-tonne slab which has covered the tomb of dictator Francisco Franco for the past 44 years and fly his remains by helicopter away from a state mausoleum, government sources told reporters on Monday. The ruling Socialists have long sought to exhume Franco's remains and turn the Valley of the Fallen complex near the capital Madrid into a memorial to the 500,000 people who were killed during the 1936-39 civil war he unleashed. A crane will lift the slab and, if the original zinc-lined wood coffin is too degraded, the dictator's remains will be transferred into a new coffin, the sources said.

There's a long line of Democrats ready to take up one helm of the impeachment probe. House Oversight Committee Chair Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) died last week after longstanding health problems, leaving open his spot at one of the committees investigating President Trump.

In President Trump's first full briefing at the Defense Department, he requested a grand "Victory Day" parade with "vehicles and tanks on Main Street" and down Pennsylvania Avenue, like the "amazing" parade he'd just witnessed in France, Guy Snodgrass, a top aide to then-Defense Secretary James Mattis, recounts in his new book, "Holding the Line." "The Fourth of July is too hot," Trump added.

The entrance to the Kowloon Mosque, the international hub's largest, was sprayed by a water cannon truck on Sunday, causing anger among both local Muslims and protesters. Police use the dye -- often mixed with an irritant -- as a way to identify protesters but it has frequently left streets and buildings daubed in a garish blue.
The fashion industry veteran is currently facing allegations of sexual assault and harassment from several former models, with incidents reported as happening as recent as 2015. Brunel was the subject of a CBS's "60 Minutes" aired in 1988 in which several young models accused him of sexual misconduct, including groping and other sexual advances to drugging women's drinks and rape. The allegations didn't have any apparent effect and sparked no investigation.

One by one, U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn declined to send them to prison, despite guidelines that call for a few years or more behind bars.

ProPublica published a piece Wednesday that put the spotlight once again on some questionable financial practices of the Trump Organization, which showed one set of books to banks (inflating value) and another to New York City tax authorities (deflating value). Is this just the usual Trump mendacity, or can prosecutors see this as part of a pattern? ProPublica obtained property tax docs for four Trump properties.
Donald Trump's multiple abuses of office are more serious than those even of Richard Nixon, and Democrats must trigger their effort to impeach him before the end of the year, a former top Republican administration lawyer has claimed. Richard Painter, who served as an ethics lawyer to the administration of George W Bush but who quit the party after it moved sharply to the right, claims Mr Trump's offences are unique even when considered against the many misdeeds of his predecessors. “President Trump has violated the constitution in numerous ways, including taking profits and benefits from foreign governments.

SEATTLE/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Boeing Co said on Sunday it understood the outcry over leaked messages from a former test pilot over erratic software behavior on its 737 MAX jet two years before recent crashes, and added it was still investigating what they meant. The world's largest planemaker, under growing pressure to explain what it knew about 737 MAX problems before it entered service, said it had not been able to speak directly to former employee Mark Forkner but echoed his lawyer's subsequent claims that the problems were linked to a faulty simulator. The role of the simulator has emerged as a crucial issue since the 2016 messages surfaced on Friday, since investigators will want to know whether erratic movements reported by the pilot meant Boeing was aware of problems on the aircraft itself or only in the artificial cockpit.

The plane will replace the Luftwaffe's fleet of 93 Panavia Tornado fighter-bombers and complement the service's roughly 140 Eurofighter Typhoons.

The Russian leader called the two-day event "unprecedented" as the Black Sea resort of Sochi prepared to host over 3,000 business representatives and other delegates.
