The 52-year-old municipal employee in Commerce Township, about 40 miles northwest of Detroit, was asked to remove signs that violated a city ordinance, the Oakland County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.

Susan Page, who moderated Wednesday's debate, reflected on Vice President Mike Pence continually interrupting her as she attempted to ask the candidates questions. When asked about the interruptions in a YouTube video by USA Today on Thursday, Page, who heads USA Today's Washington bureau, pointed out the vice president behaved similarly in the last vice presidential debate in 2016. "Of course, he participated in the vice presidential debate four years ago with a woman moderator, and he did similar things with that debate as well where he talked on and talked over her," Page said during the video.
The Trump administration has blacklisted virtually all of Iran's financial sector, dealing another blow to an economy that is already reeling under U.S. sanctions. The move will deepen tensions with European nations and others over Iran. Thursday's move hits 18 Iranian banks that had thus far escaped the bulk of re-imposed U.S. sanctions and, more importantly, subjects foreign, non-Iranian financial institutions to penalties for doing business with them.

Senator, I know one of our judicial nominees you actually attacked, because they were a member of the Catholic Knights of Columbus,” Pence said, “just because the Knights of Columbus holds pro-life views. My hope is that when the hearing takes place that Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be respectfully voted and confirmed onto the Supreme Court of the United States.

Firearms experts say a ballistics report from Kentucky State Police shows Breonna Taylor's boyfriend fired the shot that wounded a Louisville officer and prompted police to return fire, killing Taylor. The authorities said the four-page report dismisses the theory that Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly was hit by "friendly fire" from his own officers and supports Attorney General Daniel Cameron's conclusion that the 9 mm round that severed Mattingly's femoral artery came from the gun fired by Kenneth Walker. The ballistics report, part of the investigative file released Wednesday by Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, shows that only one 9 mm bullet and cartridge casing was found at Taylor's apartment.

The upscale Colorado house where Chris Watts murdered his wife and children in 2018 has been on the market since the horrific murders occurred, and it appears it may sit vacant forever.

A picture of former President Barack Obama holding a little girl in his lap has become the subject of various social media claims suggesting the girl was victimized. The term has origins in QAnon conspiracy theories, according to a Twitter hashtag, and is an apparent combination of "pedophile" and "carnivore."
