On Friday afternoon, FBI Director James Comey delivered a classified, hour-long briefing to the Senate Intelligence Committee on the Russia scandal, and soon after, the Senate Intelligence Committee sent “formal requests to more than a dozen organizations, agencies and individuals, asking them to preserve all materials related to the committee’s investigation” into the controversy. We don’t know much about how the briefing went - committee members were tight-lipped following Comey’s presentation - though Sen.

(CNN)Melania Trump is beginning to forge her own path as America's first lady, assembling a team of aides and advisers. But the name of one longtime confidante, and perhaps her most trusted friend, won't be announced with a news release or statement or a new title: her sister, Ines Knauss. Knauss, Trump's older sister, lives just blocks from Trump Tower in the Trump Park Avenue property, public records confirm.

"I'm just trying to stay focused and be thankful that I'm one of the lucky ones in this situation," said Troy, who's alive to talk about her encounter
A particularly poignant example comes from a 2012 case Melton tried as a San Antonio prosecutor. Melton went after a pimp who had sold a 16-year-old girl for sex over two years. The girl suffered horrific abuse at his hands-she was raped, impregnated, and forced to have an abortion. When she tried to run away, the pimp carved his initials into her forearm. The pimp got a 20-year sentence. A year later, the same girl was 19 and headed to prison herself.

Editors' pick: Originally published Feb. 14. What's happening right now at the first-ever Kmart store opened in America may be indicative of what lies ahead for the struggling Sears Holding Corp. (SHLD) owned discount chain. The first Kmart store opened in Garden City, Michigan on March 1, 1962. A total of 18 Kmart stores opened that year. But, Sears executives apparently have no sense of nostalgia as the store in Garden City was chosen to be one of 150 locations closed in early 2017 as the dying retailer tries to stay afloat. Store closing sales are currently unfolding at the store. With the help of a Facebook page dedicated to the first ever Kmart opened, TheStreet shows how much times have
