Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa) (Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)Former Trump campaign aide Richard W. Gates III is expected to plead guilty today to conspiracy and lying about a 2013 Ukraine-related meeting between his former business partner Paul Manafort, a lobbyist and California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa). The meeting became public in the summer when Manafort belatedly filed a disclosure form for his work as a foreign agent on behalf of Ukraine. Three days after the dinner, Manafort contributed $1,000 to Rohrabacher's reelection campaign.

(Carolyn Kaster/AP)“I haven’t heard a strong, loud outcry for gun control,” said House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La. And multiple Republican lawmakers have come forward in recent days to challenge their party’s Second Amendment orthodoxy. And then there’s Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who could emerge as a more prominent player in the Senate gun talks.

(CNN) A Parkland school shooting survivor is calling for Melania Trump to fulfill her pledge to combat cyberbullying -- starting with her own family. "Hey @FLOTUS you say that your mission as First Lady is to stop cyber bullying," 14-year-old Lauren Hogg tweeted Friday. "Well then, don't you think it would have been smart to have a convo with your step-son @DonaldJTrumpJr before he liked a post about a false conspiracy theory which in turn put a target on my back." President Donald Trump's eldest son liked a tweet promoting a false conspiracy theory that claimed that Lauren Hogg's older brother, David, had been coached by his father -- a former FBI agent -- to speak out against President Donald Trump. "The fact that Donald Trump Jr. liked that post is disgusting to me," David Hogg said on "Anderson Cooper 360" Wednesday.

And of course, The Walking Dead has (spoilers) just lost a huge character in the form of Carl. And after six years on The Walking Dead, it stands to reason that she might want to stretch her legs elsewhere. AMCThe Walking Dead losing Michonne would arguably be its biggest blow to date. The point being, she is a hugely important character in The Walking Dead both right now, and potentially long into the future. I already don’t know how The Walking Dead will dance around Carl’s death, given how important he is to the series.

They largely owed their existence to the high tariffs that kept out imports from the United States and elsewhere. PhotoAt the same time, tariffs in the United States made Canadian exports a tough sell for many industries. Also not returning are the high tariffs that created and sustained many factories, both in the United States and Canada. During the early 1990s, the United States took more than three-quarters of Canada’s pork exports. Given all the uncertainty surrounding Nafta, Mr. Davies said it is not practical to try to plan for its demise.

When police officers stormed into the house, freeing the remaining chained Turpin children, the captives had no concept of what a police officer was. In total, Louise and David Turpin each face about 40 charges, including a dozen counts of torture and another dozen counts of false imprisonment.

Last year HMD Global was the big winner in terms of press mentions thanks to the resurrection of the Nokia 3310 feature phone. Although already announced in January, expect the Nokia 3310 4G to get some stage time to ensure that the message leaves the geekerati and reaches the mainstream media. HMD Global is already comfortable using stock Android and ensuring that everything stays up to date with security patches. Ewan SpenceThe greatest game is fitting all of the HMD Global range around the simplistic Nokia ‘X’ numbering scheme. Luckily there’s another number to talk about, because the same analysts suggest that HMD Global has passed ten million total sales.

The University of Arizona may be interested in terminating its contract with current men’s basketball head coach Sean Miller after it was reported that Miller discussed paying $100,000 to ensure that freshman Deandre Ayton would sign with the school.

A section in the contract titled, "Termination by University Without Cause; Liquidated Damages" is circumstantial evidence of a major screw up by Arizona. It plainly says that Miller gets his Base Salary. It was fully signed by Miller and President Ann Weaver Hart on behalf of the University of Arizona.

"You cannot assume that sexual harassment, that a sexually hostile work environment does not exist within your organization. Unless you have repeated and ongoing diligence and ongoing conversation and are having strong leadership from the top all the way through, there will be no change in this."

For 2018, the formula is resetting again with a lineup of new menus spotlighting great wine regions of the world. On a, um, "research" trip to the region, the Maude team drank with local vintners, foraged for mushrooms, made goat cheese and chorizo and ate plenty of tapas. The wines chosen for Stone's menu reflect both classic and modern tastes, from traditional bodega wines to convention-shattering standouts known as Rioja n Roll. This dish, inspired by the garden at Rioja’s Venta Moncalvillo restaurant, will evolve based on what’s in season at the farmers market." A pork-and-beans dish is named after a revered Rioja winemaker who invited Stone and his crew for a meal.
