    As defense opens, Trump attorneys accuse Democrats of 'blind drive' to impeachment

    Attorneys for President Trump opened their defense in his Senate impeachment trial Saturday morning by charging that the case presented by House Democrats was full of “bluster and innuendo,” and that “devastating evidence” would lead to the inevitable conclusion that the two articles of impeachment now being considered have no merit. “The president did absolutely nothing wrong,” said White House counsel Pat Cipollone, who is leading Trump's defense. The other key point, made by Cipollone and others, was that Trump acted “in our national interest” by withholding $250 million in military aid from Ukraine for several months in the spring and summer of 2019.

    Australia confirms fifth coronavirus case from last flight out of Wuhan

    Australia confirmed on Monday its fifth case of a new coronavirus, with health officials saying the case involved a 21-year-old woman who was on the last flight out of the Chinese city of Wuhan to Sydney before China imposed a travel ban. The coronavirus, which is believed to have originated in a wildlife market in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, has killed 80 people, all of them in China, and infected more than 2,700, the vast majority in China. The woman traveled on a direct flight to Sydney from Wuhan and developed symptoms within 24 hours and went to an emergency department, New South Wales Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant told reporters.

    California patient is 3rd US case of new virus from China

    A patient in Southern California is the third person in the U.S. to be diagnosed with the new pneumonia-like virus from China, health officials said. The Centers for Disease Control confirmed a traveler from the Chinese city of Wuhan — the epicenter of the outbreak — tested positive for the virus, the Orange County Health Care Agency announced just before midnight Saturday. The first known case in California comes on the heels of diagnoses in Washington state, on Jan. 21, and Chicago, on Jan. 24.

    Chinese Uighurs in Saudi face impossible choice

    His eyes brimming with tears, a Uighur student in Saudi Arabia holds out his Chinese passport -- long past its expiry date and condemning him to an uncertain fate as the kingdom grows closer to Beijing. The Chinese mission in Saudi Arabia stopped renewing passports for the ethnic Muslim minority more than two years ago, in what campaigners call a pressure tactic exercised in many countries to force the Uighur diaspora to return home. Half a dozen Uighur families in Saudi Arabia who showed AFP their passports -- a few already expired and some approaching the date -- said they dread going back to China, where over a million Uighurs are believed to be held in internment camps.

    Why Did Iran Finally Tell the Truth About Accidentally Shooting Down Flight 752?

    On Jan. 11, Iran's Armed Forces General Staff admitted that one of its surface-to-air missile systems had shot down Ukrainian Airlines Flight 752 due to human error. The full acknowledgment turned heads, yet there was a reason for Iran's reversal: The country has no desire to turn itself into an international pariah, but would rather find a way to engage with the rest of the globe, limit the impact of U.S. sanctions and negotiate with the West. The frank admission goes to show that such strategic goals influence many of Iran's choices — including its volte-face on the aviation disaster.

    Jona Laks could smell the burning flesh as she walked towards death at the Auschwitz crematorium. More than 75 years later, aged 90, she has returned to what was the most notorious Nazi death camp of World War Two's Jewish Holocaust. "I can see it now," she says, gazing upon the crematorium where the corpses of Jews from across Europe who were murdered in gas chambers were later burned in furnaces.

The spot cites Dimon's pay, including $31.5 million last year, and says JPMorgan received bailouts after the global financial crisis 12 years ago.

    Following 'explosive' report about John Bolton's book, Democrats say he must testify in impeachment trial

    In the wake of a new report about the contents of former National Security Adviser John Bolton's forthcoming book about his time working with President Trump, the seven House impeachment managers are calling for him to testify in the Senate impeachment trial. The New York Times reported on Sunday that in the unpublished manuscript, Bolton writes that Trump told him he wanted to withhold military aid to Ukraine until officials there launched investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Trump has publicly denied that is the reason he froze the money, which was finally released in September, the same month Bolton left his position as national security adviser.

    A Google search for "When did Kobe Bryant die" on Sunday night, listed Jan. 26 as the former NBA star's "date of assassination" rather than "date of death." The result, which mentions the "date of assassination" is for a Wikipedia page about Bryant's life and career. The word "assassination" did not appear on the Wikipedia page, which does have a note that it is "being heavily edited because its subject has recently died."

    Here's how Democrats will elect their presidential nominee over the next several months

    Associated Press Between February and June 2020, all 50 US states and several US territories will hold a Democratic primary election or caucus beginning with the Iowa caucuses on February 3. The Democratic nominee will be formally selected at the Democratic National Convention, which will take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in mid-July, by delegates elected in primaries. But even though the nominee will be formally picked then, we'll probably know who wins much earlier than that: 90% of pledged delegates will be allocated after April 28.

    Georgia inmate who came close to execution in 2017 dies

    A Georgia death row inmate whose planned execution was halted in September 2017 by the U.S. Supreme Court after his lawyers argued his death sentence was tainted by a juror's racial bias has died, according to the state Department of Corrections. Keith “Bo” Tharpe, 61, died of natural causes Friday, Georgia Department of Corrections spokeswoman Joan Heath confirmed in an email Sunday. In 1991, a jury convicted Tharpe of murder in the September 1990 slaying of his sister-in-law, Jacquelyn Freeman, and sentenced him to death.

    Anxious foreigners await rescue from China virus epicentre

    Anxious foreigners in the locked-down city that spawned China's deadly viral epidemic say they are stranded at home, running out of food and desperate to leave, as governments scrambled to draw up evacuation plans. Authorities have barred travel to and from Hubei province and its capital Wuhan, where the coronavirus was first detected before it spread across China and to a dozen other countries -- including the United States, France and Australia. Several other large cities in China have introduced their own travel restrictions in a bid to contain the disease, which has killed 56 people and infected nearly 2,000 others.

    To Combat the Soviets, the U.S. Almost Built Its Own "Skyfall" Nuclear Powered Missile

    Key Point: Thankfully, Washington decided the weapon would not be necessary in the Cold War standoff. After days of speculation by Western analysts that a deadly accident on August 8 that briefly spiked radiation levels in northwestern Russia was tied to tests of an exotic nuclear-powered “Skyfall” nuclear-powered cruise missile, Russian sources confirmed to the New York Times the explosion of a “small nuclear reactor. While there's a tactical rationale behind Russia's development of a fast, surface-skimming cruise missile with an unlimited range as a means of bypassing American missile defenses, it strikes many analysts as an inordinately expensive, extremely technically challenging, and—ev...

    India in renewed push to sell Air India, puts entire stake on the block

    The government said on Monday it plans to sell its entire interest in Air India Ltd, in a renewed push to sell the airline after an attempt to auction a majority stake almost two years ago failed to draw any bids. A document released on Monday showed March 17 as the deadline for submission of initial expressions of interest, and that any bidder must assume liabilities including 232.87 billion rupees ($3.28 billion) in debt. Substantial ownership and effective control of the airline must remain with an Indian entity, the government also said.

    Trump impeachment: President’s lawyer claims Democrats are asking senators to ‘tear up the ballots’

    Donald Trump's legal team began their defence of the president with an aggressive rebuttal of House Democrats' charges that he tried to “cheat” to win the 2020 presidential race, while also warning senators they are being asked to remove their client from the ballot. Using the kind of brash rhetoric employed daily by Mr Trump, White House counsel Pat Cipollone closed Saturday's session by warning the Democratic and Republican senators who will decide whether the president is removed from office that doing so would amount to an “abuse of power”. Mr Trump was impeached on an abuse of power charge.

    'Doorbell Ditch' Prank Led to Crash That Killed 3 Teens, Officials Say

    A man who the authorities contend deliberately crashed his car into another one on a Southern California road last Sunday, killing three of the six teenagers inside, did so because the group had played a so-called doorbell ditch prank on him, prosecutors said this week. The man, Anurag Chandra, 42, faces several murder charges for his role in the Temescal Canyon Road crash, which the Riverside County District Attorney's Office said Thursday occurred after the boys played a doorbell ditch prank on him. In a doorbell ditch, also commonly known as a ding-dong-ditch, a person rings a doorbell and tries to run away before anyone opens the door.

    Mexican march for peace swarmed by angry protesters

    A four-day pilgrimage by family members of murdered or missing Mexicans culminated in a tense confrontation in the capital's main square Sunday as supporters of Mexico's president hurled insults at the families — including dozens of Mormons with dual U.S.-citizenship. Fervent followers of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador swarmed the Caravan for Truth, Justice and Peace as it neared the National Palace with the intention of leaving a letter for the president. There were nearly 35,000 homicides in Mexico last year — a record high for the country and a disappointing figure for López Obrador's first full year in office.

    China stiffens defences against epidemic as death toll hits 56

    China expanded drastic travel restrictions Monday and prolonged a public holiday to contain an epidemic that has killed 56 people and infected nearly 2,000, as several countries prepared to evacuate their citizens from a quarantined city at the outbreak's epicentre. China has locked down the hard-hit province of Hubei in the country's centre, an unprecedented operation affecting tens of millions of people and intended to slow transmission of the respiratory virus. Its ability to spread appears to be "getting stronger" though it is "not as powerful as SARS", top Chinese health officials said at a press conference.
