California couple faces sentencing in severe child abuse case

California couple faces sentencing in severe child abuse caseA Southern California couple who pleaded guilty to charges stemming from grim, headline-making accusations they beat, starved and shackled their 13 children in the family's home were due to be sentenced on Friday to 25 years to life in prison. David Turpin, 57, and his wife Louise Turpin, 50, agreed to the long prison terms as part of an agreement with Riverside County prosecutors that saw them plead guilty in February to torture, child abuse and false imprisonment charges. The sentencing marks the culmination of a criminal case that has convulsed the community of Perris, California, some 70 miles (113 km) east of Los Angeles, since an emaciated 17-year-old girl climbed out of a window of the family's home and called 911.



Mueller report gives Democrats political ammunition but they are split on how to use it

Mueller report gives Democrats political ammunition but they are split on how to use it(Note graphic language in 13th paragraph) By Sarah N. Lynch and Andy Sullivan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on his inquiry into Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election provided extensive details on President Donald Trump's efforts to thwart the probe, giving Democrats plenty of political ammunition against the Republican but no consensus on how to use it. Mueller's 448-page report, the product of a 22-month investigation, built a broad case that Trump had committed obstruction of justice but stopped short of concluding he had committed a crime, although it did not exonerate him. Mueller noted Congress has the power to address whether Trump violated the law, and Democrats quickly vowed to steam ahead with congressional investigations of the president.

Pelosi declines to comment on possibility of Trump impeachment

Pelosi declines to comment on possibility of Trump impeachmentU.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday declined to comment on whether Congress might launch impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, saying it was not appropriate to criticize him while abroad. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on his inquiry into Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election provided extensive details on Trump's efforts to thwart the probe, but Democratic party leaders have played down talk of impeachment just 18 months before the 2020 presidential election. "Whatever the issue and challenge that we face, the Congress of the United States will honor its oath of office to protect and defend the constitution of the United States, to protect our democracy," Pelosi told journalists in Belfast when asked about possible impeachment proceedings.
