Executive privilege and the Mueller report: A battle of constitutional proportions

AdobeStock_206526515.jpeg

It's been almost a month since the Justice Department released a highly redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's long-awaited report. The report contains official findings on the in-depth investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, including possible links to the Trump campaign, as well as possible obstruction of justice by the president himself.

However, the report has raised more questions - and controversy - than it settled. And the circumstances surrounding its redacted release have fueled backlash among Democrats and pointed criticism by Mueller.

The Jussie Smollett Saga: Another Case Of A Celebrity Getting Off Easy?

Jussie Smollett, star of Fox's hit series "Empire," claimed he was the victim of a racist, homophobic attack in Chicago on January 29th. After much public outcry and hundreds of hours of investigation, Chicago police determined that the attack had been a publicity stunt arranged by Smollett.

He was charged with 16 counts of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report, all while continuing to deny his involvement. On March 26th, those charges were dropped, and Smollett continued to proclaim his innocence, despite evidence to the contrary.

So what exactly happened?

Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti faces charges that could land him almost 100 years in jail

Michael Avenatti became a familiar face on cable news shows when he represented adult film star Stormy Daniels in her case against Donald Trump. Avenatti loudly voiced his distaste for the president, and even toyed with the idea of taking on Trump in the 2020 election.

Now, in what can only be called a spectacular fall from grace, he has been charged with extortion, bank fraud, wire fraud - and, oh, the IRS claims he owes almost a million dollars in unpaid taxes.

The Russia investigation may be over, but do the findings raise more questions than answers?

After 675 days, 500 witnesses, 2,800 subpoenas, dozens of indictments, and eight guilty pleas or convictions - not to mention more than $25 million in expenses - the conclusion of the Special Counsel investigation has left many Americans feeling either elated or deflated, depending on which side they are on.

Suspect arrested 11 years after Charlotte quadruple murder, but cold case is far from shut

It was an early spring morning in March 2008 when Charlotte police made a gruesome discovery: Four people shot dead in a top-floor apartment. The bodies were "riddled with bullets," yet nobody reported hearing gunshots.

The apartment complex, in the Montclaire South neighborhood, had been a crime hotspot for years. Many of the other units were vacant at the time of the killings, leaving police with little to follow up on.
