WASHINGTON - Attorney General Jeff Sessions refused to comment Tuesday on whether he spoke to President Donald Trump about former FBI Director James Comey's handling of the investigation into coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential race. Sessions told the Senate Intelligence Committee he could not discuss his conversations with Trump because they were private. "I am not able to discuss with you or confirm or deny the nature of private conversations that I may have had with the president on this subject or others," Sessions said.
Refugees have been at the center of a political maelstrom, accused of everything from terrorism to being a drain on taxpayers - prompting President Donald Trump, in one of his first official acts, to suspend the country's four-decade old refugee resettlement program. But a new study shows that refugees end up paying more in taxes than they receive in welfare benefits after just eight years of living in this country.
When 17-year-old Grant Berardo wanted to wear a political T-shirt on school picture day in October, his parents told him it was fine. His "TRUMP Make America Great Again!" shirt did not violate the dress code at Wall Township High School in central New Jersey because it did not reference drugs or alcohol or weapons. Instead, it simply featured the Republican presidential nominee's campaign slogan. "He just wanted to memorialize what was going on in the country at the time," the teen's father, Joseph Berardo, told The Washington Post.
WASHINGTON - Attorney General Jeff Sessions's appearance Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee will be a high-stakes test for a Trump official who has become a central figure in the scandal engulfing the White House over Russia and the firing of James B. Comey as FBI director but has so far kept a low profile. Sessions, a former Republican senator from Alabama, will face tough questions from his former colleagues on a number of fronts that he has never had to publicly address in detail.
Born from a deleted, after-midnight tweet from President Donald Trump, the true definition of "covfefe," remains unsettled, even to the commander in chief, who appeared to mis-type it into existence on Twitter one night last month. But a congressman from Illinois wants to bring new meaning to the word. The "COVFEFE" Act, introduced by Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., Monday, aims to preserve tweets from the president's personal twitter account, ensuring that Trump's social media posts are archived as presidential records.
An ordinary snorkeling excursion in a shallow reef in the Bahamas turned horrific last week when a shark attack cost a North Carolina mother of three much of her right arm. "It just felt like I had bumped into something, so I just casually turned to my right to look . . . my whole arm was in its mouth, just floating there," Tiffany Johnson told ABC affiliate WTVD from her Concord, North Carolina, home. "I kept trying to yank my hand back and the last time I yanked, he had cut it clean off so I was able to actually get free," Johnson told WSOC.com.
WASHINGTON - The president and first lady's commuter marriage appear to be over, as the family has united under one roof again. First lady Melania Trump and son, Barron, 11, moved into the White House Sunday after spending the first several months of President Donald Trump's presidency residing in their Trump Tower penthouse in New York City, "Looking forward to the memories we'll make in our new home!" Melania Trump tweeted Sunday from her official @FLOTUS account. An accompanying photograph featured a view of the Washington Monument from a window in the White House.
Production on "Bachelor in Paradise" - the popular spinoff of ABC's "The Bachelor" franchise - was shut down over the weekend after alleged "misconduct" on set, Warner Bros. has confirmed.

NBC's Megyn Kelly is under fire for her one-on-one interview with Infowars's Alex Jones. One of the immediate critics is a mother whose daughter was killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, a massacre that Jones has dismissed as a government hoax. Nelba Marquez-Greene saw the interview, scheduled to air Sunday - Father's Day - as an "egregious offense" to fathers whose children were murdered on Dec. 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut. "To give Alex Jones a platform on Father's Day is especially cruel to me," she told The Washington Post.
Last year I reviewed Apple's new iPad Pro and found that it was not quite the laptop replacement that we had hoped for. But with the new tablet that Apple announced last week, the company is closer than ever, especially once iOS 11 comes better.
