Fox News hires former DNC chair Donna Brazile who left CNN after tipping off Clinton about 2016 debate questionsFox News’ newest pundit is one CNN rejected after she colluded with Hillary Clinton’s campaign before campaign events in 2016. Fox said on Monday that it has hired Donna Brazile, the former interim Democratic National Committee chair and a long-time CNN commentator before she became embroiled in controversy in 2016. CNN forced Ms Brazile to resign as an on-air contributor in October 2016 after emails revealed that she had tipped off Ms Clinton’s aides about questions likely to be asked by CNN moderators during the debates and town hall meetings carried by CNN.

Former white supremacist explains what leads people to the extreme right

Former white supremacist explains what leads people to the extreme rightA former neo-Nazi skinhead has attempted to pinpoint exactly how white supremacists are radicalised to commit violent attacks against minorities similar to the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand that killed at least 51 people last week. The co-founder of Life After Hate, a nonprofit organisation aimed at helping people leave white supremacist groups, was asked on CNN if stationing armed guards at houses of worships could effectively prevent white supremacists from committing a heinous attack like Christchurch. While Mr Picciolini agreed ‘vulnerable places need to be protected,’ he said more priority should be placed on the forums and sources where men and women are often radicalised by white supremacist ideology.

Trump news live: President slates Brexit negotiations as his former adviser Roger Stone appears in court

Trump news live: President slates Brexit negotiations as his former adviser Roger Stone appears in courtDonald Trump continued his attack on the Robert Mueller investigation last night ahead of his former adviser Roger Stone’s latest court hearing in Washington. The president was particularly stirred by the release of transcripts of House Judiciary Committee interviews with FBI lawyer Lisa Page over whether the bureau had an “insurance policy” against Mr Trump’s election, the existence of which agent Peter Strzok appeared to suggest in a series of anti-Trump text messages exchanged with Ms Page during the 2016 campaign. “This is a total disgrace and should NEVER happen to another President!” Mr Trump tweeted after the development was given extensive coverage by Fox News, taking the story as further evidence of the “witch hunt” against him represented by Mr Mueller’s Russia probe and the string of investigations into his affairs launched by House Democrats.

Manafort sentencing: Trump's former campaign manager gets 73 months in prison over fraud caseDonald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been sentenced to 73 months on two charges, including conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice after he attempted to tamper with witnesses. Manafort’s total sentence in the two hearings he has faced in recent weeks amounts to 90 months — or seven years and six months — in prison. Manafort asked Judge Amy Berman Jackson for mercy on Wednesday, saying the criminal charges against him have “taken everything from me already.” He pleaded with the judge not to impose any additional prison time beyond the roughly four-year sentence he received in a separate case last week.

Pell, a former top adviser to Pope Francis, is the most senior Catholic to be convicted for child sex offences. “In my view, your conduct was permeated by staggering arrogance,” said Kidd in handing down the sentence after Pell was convicted of five charges of sexually abusing two children.
