“I think he wanted to take my power so he could feel powerful,” Tina Johnson told Kelly. Johnson told AL.com earlier this week that the incident with Moore happened in 1991 as she was visiting his law office with her mother. Johnson’s mother had hired Moore to handle custody paperwork for her daughter’s son as Johnson, then 28, neared divorce. Moore’s behavior made the situation more “uncomfortable,” Johnson said, but “bells went off” when he began asking about her other children, two girls.
Federal officials have serious questions about the credibility of a key witness in congressional investigations of Hillary Clinton’s role in the sale of a uranium-mining company to Russian interests, two sources knowledgeable about the case tell Yahoo News. The witness, a Florida businessman and former FBI informant named William Douglas Campbell, was considered so unreliable that prosecutors dropped him as a witness in an unrelated case involving Russian uranium sales, according to the sources. The investigations by two House subcommittees, apparently spurred by a tweet from President Trump last month, focus on allegations about Clinton’s role in approving the controversial sale of Uranium One, a company that owned American uranium mines, to Rosatom, the Russian atomic energy company, in 2010.
“I feel good about it,” Biden said to NBC News about the memes. The politician was referring to a meme of him holding Obama's shoulder and telling him to hide a fake birth certificate in a drawer in the White House -- a reference to the "birther" crusade Trump publicly pursued about a fake conspiracy theory that Obama was not born in the United States.

Argentina’s navy was hunting on Friday for one of its submarines which has been reported missing off the country’s south coast with a crew of 44 on board. The navy said it had not had contact with the submarine, the San Juan, for 48 hours. "We have not been able to find, or have visual or radar communication with the submarine," navy spokesman Enrique Balbi told a news conference.
Two people were killed on Friday as Kenyan police tried to disperse supporters cheering a convoy carrying opposition leader Raila Odinga from the airport to central Nairobi, a Reuters photographer said. Police fired tear gas at the convoy and used water cannon as they tried to stop it reaching the capital’s main business district, live footage on Kenyan TV showed. Odinga has called for a “National Resistance Movement” to protest against the outcome of a repeat presidential election last month which saw President Uhuru Kenyatta win a second, five-year term with 98 percent of the vote after Odinga boycotted the contest.
Rich businessmen around the world want Russia to turn its Tupolev-160 strategic bomber into a private jet.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey plans to vote for Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore in spite of allegations that the former judge sexually assaulted multiple women. “I believe in the Republican Party, what we stand for, and, most important, we need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like the Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions,” she said. At least nine women have come forward with accusations against Moore ranging from harassment to sexual assault. Four came forward in a Washington Post report published last week, saying that Moore pursued them when they were in their teens and he was in his 30s.
President Trump, overruling a rule change by his Interior Department, said on Friday that he would keep in place for the time being a ban on importing elephant hunting trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia. Trump announced the move on Twitter Friday evening after a day of uncertainty and protests over the decision by the Fish and Wildlife Service that the ban, intended to conserve shrinking African elephant populations, would be lifted. The president said delaying a decision would allow him to “review” the situation with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.
The head of Puerto Rico’s power utility resigned Friday while facing scrutiny for the slow progress being made on restoring the island’s power grid eight weeks after Hurricane Maria devastated the U.S. territory. Ricardo Ramos, executive director of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA), submitted his resignation, effective immediately, to the utility’s board. The contract, which Puerto Rico officials canceled after the hearing, was suspect because the bankrupt utility chose Whitefish Energy over larger firms with lower rates and more experience in dealing with disaster-stricken areas, according to The Washington Post.
Argentina’s navy has launched a huge search-and-rescue operation for a military submarine with 44 crew members that has been missing off the coast of Patagonia for more than two days. The last radio contact with the San Juan submarine was on Wednesday, when it was 430km off the coast of the southern province of Chubut, in the area of San Jorge bay, a naval spokesman said on Friday.
New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority retired the use of “ladies and gentlemen” in its service announcements last week and began using gender-neutral terms like “passengers” and “everyone” to address riders. Aside from the fact that (at least based on the behavior I personally witness every morning on my way to work) very few of my fellow subway riders seem to qualify as “ladies” or “gentlemen” ― I’m still haunted by the memory of a man I saw this summer who nonchalantly launched a snot rocket onto the floor of a not-uncrowded C train car ― the de-gendering makes sense statistically, too. According to several recent surveys, 50 percent of millennials believe that gender exists on a spectrum and 12 percent of millennials identify as transgender or gender non-conforming. That means that at any given moment, it’s quite likely there are individuals riding the New York City subway who don’t identify as women or men, so shouldn’t the MTA use terminology that applies to everyone no matter how they see themselves or present themselves in the world?
Russia’s Navy has a new nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) patrolling the world’s seas. On Friday, the submarine, Knyaz Vladimir, set sail on its first venture. The sub is the first of five upgraded Borei-class submarines that Russia is building.

Mass murderer Charles Manson is alive in a California hospital, but new reports suggest he may be near to death after serving more than four decades behind bars for committing one of the most notorious crimes in modern history.
In April 2016, just five months after President Barack Obamarejected the proposal to build the Keystone XL pipeline, the existing Keystone pipeline leaked 17,000 gallons of oil onto private land in southeastern South Dakota. For Art Tanderup, a Nebraska farmer who spent the last five years crusading to keep TransCanada from building the conduit over his modest 160 acres, the spill confirmed his worst fears.
Qatar's foreign minister on Friday compared Saudi Arabia's political maneuvers in Lebanon to its boycott of his country, and accused Riyadh of a dangerous escalation. Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani, in Washington to push the Gulf emirate's case in its diplomatic stand-off with the kingdom and its allies, said Saudi Arabia has triggered crises across the region.
An ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin sought to arrange a meeting with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign on the sidelines of a National Rifle Association meeting — outreach that Jared Kushner subsequently failed to disclose, sources have told NBC. Earlier this week, the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee contacted Mr Kushner’s attorney asking for more documents from Mr Kushner, who is the President’s son-in-law and a top aide. Specifically, the panel — which is conducting one of multiple investigations into potential collaboration between the Russian government and Mr Trump’s presidential campaign — said Mr Kushner’s attorney had not turned over documents concerning a “Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite”.

A US military upgraded Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle, or EKV, a kinetic-force weapon that slams into its targets, destroyed an intercontinental ballistic missile for the first time during a Missile Defense Agency test of the Ground-based Midcourse Defense system several months ago. The Missile Defense Agency's first-ever successful intercept of an ICBM target using a Ground-based Midcourse Defense system, using the kinetic force of an Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) to destroy the target, is paving the way toward advanced future kill vehicles able to discern and attack multiple approaching threats, industry and Pentagon officials said.
