Department Of Justice Inspector General Sends McCabe Case To Prosecutors For Possible Charges

The Justice Department’s inspector general has asked Federal Prosecutors in Washington to determine whether the FBI’s former deputy director, Andrew McCabe, should be charged for allegedly “lacking candor” on multiple occasions with internal investigators, and with then-FBI director James Comey.  Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded that McCabe repeatedly misled investigators looking into how sensitive investigative information ended up on in a national newspaper in the weeks before the 2016 presidential election. Horowitz’s office then referred the matter to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Washington, indicating Horowitz believes McCabe committed a federal crime with his actions.

Miguel Díaz-Canel Replaces Raul Castro As Cuba’s President

57-year-old bureaucrat Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel replaced Raul Castro as the president of Cuba on Thursday, launching a new political era. The National Assembly announced that Diaz-Canel had been approved as the sole candidate for president. However, the 86-year-old Castro will remain head of the Communist Party, which is designated by the constitution as “the superior guiding force of society and the state.” As a result, he will still be the most powerful person in Cuba for the time being.

Pink Lands Cover of People Magazine’s 2018 ‘Most Beautiful’ Issue With Her Children

The singer Pink has landed the cover of People magazine’s newly renamed “Beautiful” issue. The Grammy-winning artist is featured on the cover of the magazine with her two children: son Jameson Moon and six-year-old daughter, Willow Sage, with husband Carey Hart. People editorial director Jess Cagle explained how the magazine’s “Beautiful” issue has evolved, which led to the decision to drop the word “most” from the title. “We’re renaming it “The Beautiful Issue” — to make clear that the issue is not a beauty contest. Nothing else has changed. As always it will feature beautiful women (and a few men) of all shapes, sizes and colors, and it will celebrate the most beautiful qualities of all: strength, humanity and artistry,” Cagle wrote. Pink is currently performing live on her “Beautiful Trauma” tour.
