Only half of that money was paid back, prosecutors said.&lt;/p&gt;

The decision to unseal the case could allow public access to documents from the Cook County State&#039;s Attorney&#039;s Office that could shed light on why the office suddenly dropped all charges against Mr. Smollett in March. Mr. Smollett was accused of staging a racist and homophobic assault against himself.&lt;/p&gt;

Josue Fuentes-Ponce, 16, of Bladensburg, Md. and Joel Escobar, 17, of Northeast Washington D.C., both natives of El Salvador, were arrested by Prince George&#039;s County (Md.) police last week and charged as adults with first-degree murder in the death of Ariana Funes-Diaz, whose body was found in a creek May 15. In a statement, ICE said it had lodged a detainer with the Prince George&#039;s County Detention Center in May 2018 after Fuentes-Ponce and Escobar were arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder and attempted robbery, among other offenses. However, the agency said both were released &quot;on an unknown date and time without notification to ICE.&quot;&lt;/p&gt;

U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos, an Obama appointee, made the ruling in a New York courthouse Wednesday afternoon after hearing arguments from both parties in the case. The ruling is the second setback for the president this week in his fight to stop lawmakers from gaining access to his financial records as part of their sweeping probes into him, his administration, his private businesses and his family.&lt;/p&gt;

Lawmakers overwhelmingly passed the measure with an 85-8 vote; eight Republicans opposed it. Congress is expected to pass the bill before leaving for its week-long recess ahead of Memorial Day.&lt;/p&gt;

The Democratic-controlled House filed suit against the Trump administration last month after the president declared a national emergency to shift funds toward building a wall at the southern border.&lt;/p&gt;

The new indictment, made public on Thursday, relates to US documents WikiLeaks published in 2010, and alleges Assange revealed the names of individuals who were working with the US government, thus endangering their lives. &quot;The superseding indictment alleges that Assange was complicit with Chelsea Manning, a former intelligence analyst in the US Army, in unlawfully obtaining and disclosing classified documents related to the national defense,&quot; the Department of Justice said in a statement.&lt;/p&gt;

The study examines “nonviolent, cost-imposing options” that the US and its allies could employ to weaken Russia’s economy, military and government structures -- and was conducted by the RAND Arroyo Center -- the US Army&#039;s federally funded research arm. While US officials and mainstream media fret constantly about vague and unverified claims of Russian “meddling,” “interference” and efforts to “sow discord” in US society, the RAND report openly details a shameless plot to drum up social discontent and societal divisions – in Russia.&lt;/p&gt;

The panel voted 13-9 against a proposal blocking the administration from using funding to carry out a military strike in or against Iran without congressional signoff, according to Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), a member of the committee. Murphy and Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.) said earlier Wednesday that they were going to bring up their proposal for a vote in the committee as an amendment to a Syrian foreign policy bill.&lt;/p&gt;

Tim Kaine (D-Va.) told reporters on a conference call. &quot;I especially believe it would be a disaster if we were to do that with the president’s unilateral say-so with no debate in Congress.&quot; Kaine&#039;s proposed amendment would prevent funding for any military action against Iran except in self-defense or if Congress approves a separate war authorization.&lt;/p&gt;

The agency&#039;s Climate Prediction Center released its &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.noaa.gov/media-release/noaa-predicts-near-normal-2019-atlantic-hurricane-season&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;forecast&lt;/a&gt; Thursday predicting between nine and 15 &quot;named storms,&quot; or storms with winds over 39 miles per hour. Among those, four to eight could become hurricanes, with winds of at least 74 mph, including a forecast of two to four major hurricanes.&lt;/p&gt;

Momentum is building toward uncovering the distasteful possibility that the targeting of a U.S. presidential campaign was actually a political operation, fostered at the highest levels of government, masquerading as an FBI counterintelligence investigation. Attorney General William Barr has signaled that his interest in examining the origins of the investigation into the Trump campaign extends beyond whether the FBI operated &quot;by the book,&quot; as former FBI Director James Comey &lt;a href=&quot;https://thehill.com/opinion/judiciary/443741-jim-comeys-own-words-justify-bill-barrs-review&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;asserts&lt;/a&gt;. Barr also wants to understand the role that the larger intelligence community, or IC, may have played in all of this.&lt;/p&gt;

This is enough to make a cat laugh,&quot; the agency wrote in a commentary piece. The news outlet went on to belittle Biden as a &quot;fool of low IQ,&quot; citing his college grades and disparaging him for falling asleep at a 2011 speech by former President Barack Obama.&lt;/p&gt;

Keller&#039;s victory means that the north-central Pennsylvania district will remain in Republican hands after former Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) stepped down in January, less than one month into his fifth term in office...Keller also got a last-minute boost on Monday when Trump held a rally in Montoursville, inside the 12th District, to campaign with the GOP hopeful.&lt;/p&gt;
