WASHINGTON - A federal judge has demanded Roger Stone explain why the conditions of his release and freedom to talk about the charges against him should not be changed days after he posted a photograph of that judge to his Instagram page that included her name, a close-up of her face and what appeared to be the crosshairs of a gun sight near her head.
LUJAN DE CUYO, Argentina -When investigators swept in and raided the religious Antonio Provolo Institute for the Deaf, they uncovered one of the worst cases yet among the global abuse scandals plaguing the Catholic Church: a place of silent torment where prosecutors say pedophiles preyed on the most isolated and submissive children.
Karl Lagerfeld, a German-born couturier whose reinvention of the luxury fashion house Chanel made him one of the most well-known and influential fashion designers of the late-20th century, died Feb. 19. Chanel confirmed his death, according to the Associated Press. Other details - including his exact age, which was long the subject of mystery - were not immediately available.

Days after a federal judge imposed a limited gag order on him, Trump confidant Roger Stone posted a photograph of that judge to his Instagram page and included her name, a close-up of her face and what appeared to be the crosshairs of a gun sight near her head.

President Donald Trump on Monday hurled sharp criticism at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, accusing him of engaging in "illegal and treasonous" activity.

WASHINGTON - When President Donald Trump declared a national emergency at the southern border Friday, he stood in the Rose Garden and spoke in hyperbole. The United States was dealing with "an invasion of drugs, invasion of gangs, invasion of people" and a wall was absolutely necessary, he claimed.

None other than Ann Coulter declared on Friday, "The only national emergency is that our president is an idiot." She has a point. The president's declaration, in the words of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., amounts to "a power grab by a disappointed President, who has gone outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the constitutional legislative process."
