Justice Sonia Sotomayor has told CNN that Justice Brett Kavanaugh has been welcomed into the Supreme Court “family.”“When you’re charged with working together for most of the remainder of your life, you have to create a relationship,” she said. “The nine
The president’s incredibly misleading tweet blasted Schiff for calling out the fact that the Senate never approved Matt Whitaker as acting attorney general. Unfortunately for Trump, his entire argument appears to be based on the false premise that special counsels require Senate confirmation.

The Argentine government acknowledged on Saturday that it lacked the proper technology to rescue the submarine found deep in the Atlantic that disappeared a year ago with 44 crew members aboard. Defense Minister Oscar Aguad said at a press conference that the navy lacks submersibles with “modern technology” capable of “verifying the seabed” to extract the ARA San Juan, which was found 800 meters (2,625 feet) deep in waters off the Valdes Peninsula in Argentine Patagonia. The company was responsible for the search for the missing vessel and was commissioned by the Argentine government.

Tess Owen, a reporter for Vice News, posted multiple videos from the march on Twitter, showing various drivers leaving the rally at the urging of left wing counter-protesters.
Defense analysts around the world must have done a simultaneous spit-take on October 30 when Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary James Mattis demanded an immediate ceasefire in Yemen and peace talks within thirty days. After more than three and a half years, U.S. support for Saudi Arabia’s brutal invasion of Yemen is finally wavering.
The launch of an Apple store on the Champs Elysees in Paris was greeted Sunday by a protest against the US multinational's controversial fiscal practices. The group had staged a sit-in at Apple's flagship Paris store in December 2017, and in February a French court declined to approve a ban on such actions following a request by the US computer giant. "We have come to celebrate in our own way the inauguration of Apple's Champs Elysees store, to remind people that Apple is one of the biggest tax evaders in the world," Attac spokeswoman Aurelie Trouve told AFP at the protest, which featured a brass band.

Volunteers in white coveralls, hard hats and masks poked through ash and debris Sunday, searching for the remains of victims of the devastating Northern California wildfire before rains forecast this week complicate their efforts. A team of 10 volunteers went from burned house to burned house Sunday in the devastated town of Paradise, accompanied by a cadaver dog with a bell on its collar that jingled in the grim landscape. Robert Panak, a volunteer on a different team from Napa County, spent the morning searching homes, but didn’t find any remains.
“Drinking the Kool-Aid” is a phrase bandied about regularly in corporate life, especially when someone wants to take a dig at people with a cult-like belief in a business philosophy or those fanatically chasing an idea that will end badly.November 18
Mark Toepfer came to this spit of sand on the Tampa Bay shore to soak up the sun, drink a beer and maybe do a little fishing — not to talk about elections. With races for U.S. Senate and governor still officially undecided, the state's latest recount only adds to its reputation for bungling elections. To much of the world, vote-counting confusion is as authentically Florida as jam-packed theme parks, alligators on golf courses and the ubiquity of Pitbull (the Miami rapper, not the dog).
"This Week" Co-Anchor Martha Raddatz sits down with five incoming House Democrats to discuss diversity, Democrats' priorities and Nancy Pelosi as speaker.
Trump, on a trip to California, said the killing "should never have happened." The report on Tuesday will explain who the U.S. government believes killed Khashoggi and what the overall impact of his murder is, Trump said. Trump also said the CIA finding that bin Salman was responsible for the killing was "possible." Trump made the remarks hours after the State Department said the government was still working on determining responsibility for the death of Khashoggi, a U.S.-based Washington Post columnist. "Recent reports indicating that the U.S. government has made a final conclusion are inaccurate," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement.
Racists in Philadelphia were apparently denied a quick escape Saturday after cab drivers refused them service following a far-right rally that met with emphatic opposition from anti-racist protesters. The event included alt-righters and at least two Proud Boys, a violent gang of fascists led by Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes, and members of the Three Percenters, a nativist anti-government militia. “This event is for all Patriots, Militia, 3%, constitution loving Americans, pro good cop, pro ICE, pro law and order, pro life, pro American value, pro gun and anti illegal immigration,” the event’s description on Facebook reads.
A man now thought to be one of the most prolific serial killers in the US claims he killed as many as 90 people over four decades. Investigators have been able to close four unsolved murder cases because of the confessions of Samuel Little. The 78-year-old, also known as Samuel McDowell, was already serving a life sentence in California for three murders when he confessed to a Texas investigator.
Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) often find themselves on opposing sides of debates in Washington. Graham, who is set to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee in next year’s new Congress, argued that passing the bill ― endorsed by Trump last week ― would allow the country to “heal” after the divisive midterm elections.
“I can’t imagine any President having a better or closer relationship with their Vice President,” he said in a tweet Saturday. The New York Times report on Friday cited unidentified sources who said Trump was repeatedly asking aides and advisers about whether Pence was loyal. “The New York Times did a phony story, as usual, about my relationship with @VP Mike Pence.

Israel's prime minister says he will also take over as defense minister and is rejecting calls to hold early elections. Netanyahu announced on national TV Sunday that he would take over the defense post following the resignation of Avigdor Lieberman. Lieberman's resignation has left Netanyahu with a narrow majority in parliament, and his remaining partners have demanded he hold early elections.
Florida is suing the nation’s two largest drugstore chains, Walgreens and CVS, alleging they added to the state and national opioid crisis by overselling painkillers and not taking precautions to stop illegal sales. Attorney General Pam Bondi announced late Friday that she has added the companies to a state-court lawsuit filed last spring against Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin, and several opioid distributors. Bondi said in a press release that CVS and Walgreens “played a role in creating the opioid crisis.” She said the companies failed to stop “suspicious orders of opioids” and “dispensed unreasonable quantities of opioids from their pharmacies.” On average, about 45 people die nationally each day because of opioid overdoses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
