Top Democrats leave open option of Trump impeachment after Mueller reportTop congressional Democrats left the door open on Sunday to the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump, but said they would first need to complete their own investigations into whether he obstructed justice in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. Some party leaders have cautioned against impeachment just 18 months before the 2020 presidential election, although prominent liberals have demanded the start of proceedings to remove Trump from office since the release on Thursday of Mueller's report.

Mexico warns of 'deep concern' over armed groups on U.S. border

Mexico warns of 'deep concern' over armed groups on U.S. borderMexico said on Saturday it had "deep concern" about armed groups that intimidate and extort migrants on the border, shortly after the ACLU and Democratic senators called for a probe into such citizen efforts to block migrants from crossing. "These types of practices can drive human rights abuses of people who migrate or request asylum or refuge in the United States," Mexico's Foreign Relations Ministry said in a statement, referring to "militia groups" in New Mexico. On Thursday, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of New Mexico condemned the United Constitutional Patriots, which patrols the southern U.S. border in New Mexico, as a "fascist militia organization" operating outside the law.

Admitted Russian agent Butina asks U.S. court to be lenient

Admitted Russian agent Butina asks U.S. court to be lenientMaria Butina, who has admitted to working as a Russian agent to infiltrate an influential U.S. gun rights group and make inroads with conservative activists and Republicans, asked the court to sentence her to time served ahead of her April 26 sentencing, according to court documents. Butina, 30, a former graduate student at American University who publicly advocated for gun rights, pleaded guilty in December to one count of conspiring to act as a foreign agent for Russia. "Although Maria has committed a serious offense, just punishment does not require additional incarceration," her attorneys argue in a sentencing memo filed on Friday.

Mueller report strengthens resolves on both sides of political spectrum

Mueller report strengthens resolves on both sides of political spectrum"Hmm, seems like there's a lot of gray area here," said Eileen O’Brien, 65, of Clearwater, Florida, reading aloud a line about the findings falling short of a criminal case. "Legally wrong and morally wrong are two different things." The release of the long-anticipated report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on his inquiry into Russia's role in the 2016 election landed in a stridently divided America: one side convinced Trump acted improperly, the other adamant that the investigation was a politically driven farce. Mueller built an extensive case that Trump committed obstruction of justice but stopped short of concluding he had committed a crime, though he did not exonerate the president.

In his report, Mueller said his investigation did not establish that the Trump campaign had coordinated with Russians.

Man who mailed white powder to Trump's sons gets probation

Man who mailed white powder to Trump's sons gets probationA Massachusetts man was sentenced on Friday to five years of probation after admitting he mailed threatening letters filled with a suspicious white powder to several prominent people, including U.S. President Donald Trump's sons. Federal prosecutors in Boston had sought three years in prison for Daniel Frisiello, 25, of Beverly, Massachusetts, whose hoax letters included one in February 2018 addressed to Donald Trump Jr. Trump's then-wife, Vanessa, opened the letter and was taken to the hospital. Investigators later determined the powder sent to Trump's eldest son's home was harmless, as was the substance contained in an earlier letter Frisiello sent during the 2016 presidential campaign to the Republican president's son Eric Trump.

Supreme Court girds for fight over Trump census citizenship question

Supreme Court girds for fight over Trump census citizenship questionA sign on its front door in a heavily Hispanic neighborhood of the borough of Queens warns law enforcement officers not to enter without a warrant. Its colorful lobby is filled with butterfly-shaped placards made for protests against the hardline immigration policies of President Donald Trump, a fellow New Yorker. Its latest fight is to contest the Trump administration's contentious plan to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, which the group has called a "racist attempt to intimidate, undercount immigrants." The plan's legality will be tested on Tuesday in arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court, which has a 5-4 conservative majority.
