WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump is interviewing two more FBI director candidates on Tuesday in what has become a winding search to find a new leader for the nation's premier law enforcement agency. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Trump was interviewing John Pistole, an FBI veteran and former Transportation Security Administration director who is now the president of Anderson University, and Christopher Wray, the former head of the Justice Department's criminal division who now works in private practice at the King & Spalding law firm.
A 16-foot-long great white shark was tracked over the holiday weekend off the Delaware coast, experts said, and she has been seen recently in the waters off Chincoteague and Assateague islands in Virginia and Maryland. Ocearch.org, a shark research organization, tracked the shark - which has been named Mary Lee - on Sunday within two miles of Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes, Delaware. Mary Lee, who weighs about 3,500 pounds, was also later spotted that day along the Cape May, New Jersey, shore. And like any popular shark these days, she has her own Twitter handle.
Every morning, Kevin Federici pulls on a head lamp, sterilizes a sewing needle and prepares to prick his baby girl all over her tiny body. She fights him with everything she has, kicking, screaming, writhing as Kevin's mother-in-law tries to hold her granddaughter still. This process can take three hours, sometimes four or five. And seven hours after it ends, Kevin's wife, Heather, begins it again. Crying as her baby cries. Desperate not to cause more damage to a body already covered in blisters and wounds.
Lawmakers scuffled on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives on Monday after a Dallas-area Republican told Democrats that he called Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers on protesters in the House gallery. "We were just on the floor talking about the SB4 protests, and [state Rep.] Matt Rinaldi, R, came up to us and made it a point to say, 'I called of them,'" said state Rep. Philip Cortez, D. "And this is completely unacceptable. We will not be intimidated. We will not be disrespected."
It began, as so many American killings do, as what police always describe as a "domestic," a man arguing about child custody with his estranged wife. It ended some seven hours later with eight dead, including a deputy sheriff and two teenage boys, in three different homes along the I-55 corridor between Jackson, Miss. and New Orleans. Investigators expect to charge Willie Corey Godbolt, 35, with one count of capital murder and seven counts of first degree murder in connection with the rampage, but charges could change as the investigation continues, the Associated Press reported.
WASHINGTON - White House press secretary Sean Spicer was giddy at the thought of meeting Pope Francis during President Trump's first trip abroad, telling acquaintances that for him, a devout Catholic, the moment would fulfill a bucket-list dream. But when the White House finalized the lucky list of staff members who would accompany Trump into his private audience with the pontiff at the Vatican last week, Spicer's name was nowhere to be found.
As Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived at the Versailles Palace on Monday to meet Emmanuel Macron, the recently elected leader of France, all eyes were on the handshake. Macron had surprised the world last week with his white-knuckle grasp of President Donald Trump's hand when the pair met for the first time. Trump had already gained notoriety for his handshake, a vigorous tug that has caught some world leaders off guard. The French president, however, came prepared.
Ali Garland wasn't expecting to meet her husband when she sent out an innocuous tweet in the summer of 2010. "I just bought a domain," she wrote. "Now I just have to figure out how to set it up."
We need more Real Men in office.
Former House speaker John A. Boehner continued a streak of remarkable post-office candor during a Wednesday appearance at a Houston energy conference, telling a luncheon audience that President Trump's term has - foreign policy aside - been a "complete disaster." "Everything else he's done has been a complete disaster," Boehner, R-Ohio, said, according to a report in Rigzone, an online energy publication. "He's still learning how to be president."
