For some Republicans, the implication that the president may have directed a campaign finance violation, which would be a felony, could foreshadow a true turning point in the Republican relationship with him when special counsel Robert Mueller releases his report on the Russia investigation.

The nativity scene which stirred up controversy was created in California by two American brothers, Casey and Corey Wright.

    Huawei senior executive is not a threat to jump bail: lawyer assures court

    The United States is showing its hostility toward Chinese tech giant Huawei by speculating one of its senior executives has avoided travelling there to dodge charges, a lawyer arguing for her release on bail said Monday. "It would take somebody who's utterly tone deaf to not understand that the United States has a political, legal posture of adversity against both China and its leading company," Martin told a packed courtroom where Meng, dressed in a green track suit, sat in the prisoner's box beside an interpreter. The United States wants Meng, Huawei's chief financial officer, to face allegations of fraud related to the use of its subsidiary Skycom to do business with Iranian telecommunications companies between 2009 and 2014.
