Chuck Todd said on Sunday that he'll be leaving “Meet the Press” after a tumultuous near-decade of moderating the NBC political panel show, to be replaced in the coming months by Kristen Welker. Todd, 51, told viewers that “I've watched too many friends and family let work consume them before it was too late” and that he'd promised his family he wouldn't do that. Todd has often been an online punching bag for critics, including Donald Trump, during a polarized time, and there were rumors that his time at the show would be short when its executive producer was reassigned at the end of last summer, but NBC gave no indication this was anything other than Todd's decision.

In the early hours of the morning, before the heat begins to press, the fishermen set off from Jamestown, a small port outside Ghana's capital, Accra. This is because the Chinese vessels, far superior in size and capability than the artisanal fishermen of Ghana, are not only causing capsizes and deliberately destroying the nets of rival boats – they're also bleeding the ocean dry of its fish.

MOSCOW (Reuters) -Russia said on Monday its forces had thwarted a major Ukrainian offensive at five points along the front in the Ukrainian region of Donetsk and killed hundreds of troops while Ukraine accused Moscow of spreading lies.

Nixon, predicted that Donald Trump was about to face the music himself in the classified documents scandal now at the heart of a federal investigation. Wine-Banks spoke amid reports the federal grand jury in the case is expected to meet again this week for the first time in a month, days after reports that federal investigators obtained audio of the former president admitting he had classified documents in his possession. “There's nothing as compelling as hearing a defendant in a criminal case say words that show his criminality,” she said.
