Yvonne Wingett Sanchez Arizona Republic Published 8:17 AM EDT Mar 19, 2019 New details about the late Sen. John McCain’s role in distributing a salacious 2016 dossier involving President Donald Trump were revealed in recently unsealed court filings. The reveal unleashed a new round of Trump fury against McCain seven months after the senator’s death. McCain, R-Ariz., previously had acknowledged getting a copy of the dossier, which was a compilation of memos written by former British spy Christopher Steele, and delivering it to then-FBI Director James Comey. The explosive dossier contained unverified information and, among other things, claimed the Russians had compromising information on Trump. David Kramer, who had known McCain since his days at the State Department, is an expert on Russia and is involved with the McCain Institute for International Leadership. He was deposed in December 2017 as part of a legal battle waged by a Russian businessman … [Read more...] about John McCain’s role in Trump dossier intrigue detailed in deposition

Richard Wolf USA TODAY Published 9:49 AM EDT Mar 18, 2019 WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court agreed Monday to decide if life-without-parole sentences for the primary gunman in a series of 2002 murders that terrorized the Washington, D.C., region must be reconsidered. The justices will hear the state of Virginia's appeal of a federal appeals court ruling that Lee Boyd Malvo should be resentenced because he was a teenager at the time of the crimes. Malvo was 17 during the shooting spree that killed 10 people in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. The mastermind of the murders, John Allen Muhammad, was executed in 2009 for his role. Malvo received four sentences of life without parole in Virginia and six sentences in Maryland. The Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that mandatory life-without-parole sentences cannot be imposed on juveniles unless they committed murder and were deemed permanently incorrigible. That ruling was made retroactive in a subsequent … [Read more...] about D.C. sniper: Supreme Court agrees to hear case of Lee Boyd Malvo
After hammering Nemo Rangers by 15 points last year they tore another Munster giant apart here, racking up a 12-point win with more scintillating football. Crokes were handicapped by the dismissal on 26 minutes of defender John Payne when his boot made contact with Dylan Wall's face in a collision. It looked accidental but referee Barry Cassidy produced a red card and the Killarney kingpins' faint hope of salvaging something even at that stage was gone. The second half was a procession with Corofin picking and choosing their moments as they liked. Only a great Shane Murphy save from Daithi Burke prevented a third goal. Burke, Galway hurling's teak-tough full-back, was majestic at midfield with Ronan Steede and with Kieran Molloy pouring through from half-back Crokes were overwhelmed at times. Corofin were slightly slower out of the blocks than last year when they had the game wrapped up inside 20 minutes. This time they applied most of the pressure in the last 10 minutes of the first … [Read more...] about Scintillating Corofin win back to back All-Irelands as Crokes crumble after John Payne sees red
Bart Jansen and John Fritze USA TODAY Published 6:56 AM EDT Mar 16, 2019 WASHINGTON – As lawmakers begin to scrutinize Boeing's grounded 737 Max 8, they will be probing one of the nation's most powerful corporate political players, backed with a multi-million-dollar lobbying budget and a direct line to the White House. Chicago-based Boeing, the second-largest U.S. government contractor, suffered a setback this week when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) followed its counterparts around the world in grounding the 737 Max 8 after two catastrophic crashes raised new questions about the plane's software. Now Boeing faces a test of its influence as congressional investigators look into how the plane was approved, what caused the crashes and why the FAA delayed its grounding order. The Senate Commerce Committee is scheduling a hearing and key House Democrats have vowed "rigorous oversight." Boeing influence Like other large U.S. … [Read more...] about Boeing 737 Max 8: Catastrophic crashes test company’s clout in D.C.
