Prosecutors are seeking three years in prison for a Massachusetts man who admitted to sending threatening letters filled with white powder to President Donald Trump's sons and others.
Daniel Frisiello is set to be sentenced Friday in Boston federal court. He pleaded guilty in October.
The letter Frisiello sent to Donald Trump Jr. was opened last year by his now-ex-wife, Vanessa. She was briefly hospitalized as a precaution after she reported feeling ill. The substance turned out to be nonhazardous.
Attorney General William Barr addressed the media prior to his department's release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report to Congress.
The only living member of the original Navy SEAL team celebrated his 94th birthday Thursday.
In 1943, Bill Dawson was part of the very first team of Naval Combat Demolition Units, or more commonly known as “frogmen.” They eventually evolved into the modern-day Navy SEALs.
Dawson was just 17 when he joined the Pacific Theater of Operations during World War II and he remained there until the Japanese surrendered in 1945.

The six-seat Beechcraft Duke crashed about 7:50 p.m. while departing from Runway 24 at Fullerton Municipal Airport, authorities said.

Crews arrived within 10 minutes of dispatch and had the fire out by 8:13 p.m., she said. The pilot was pronounced dead at the scene, Schaeffer said.

Public at last, special counsel Robert Mueller's report revealed to a waiting nation Thursday that President Donald Trump tried to seize control of the Russia probe and force Mueller's removal to stop him from investigating potential obstruction of justice by the president. Trump was largely thwarted by those around him.
Mueller laid out multiple episodes in which Trump directed others to influence or curtail the Russia investigation after the special counsel's appointment in May 2017. Those efforts "were mostly unsuccessful, but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the President declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests," Mueller wrote.
The report's bottom line largely tracked the findings revealed in Attorney General William Barr's four-page memo released a month ago — no collusion with Russia, no clear verdict on obstruction — but it added troubling layers of detail about Trump's efforts to thwart the investigation.
For nearly two years, President Donald Trump and his allies sought to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, attacking investigators' credibility and playing down their findings. As a redacted version of Mueller's report was finally released Thursday, Trump resorted to bluster, broadsides and falsehoods to try, once more, to frame the moment as a political victory.
It began even before the public glimpsed the two volumes covering 448 pages. The report included an account of how the president attempted to seize control of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and force out Mueller from leading the inquiry. But that didn't stop Trump from taking a public victory lap, declaring at a White House event for the Wounded Warriors Project that he was having "a good day."
BMW is adding nearly 185,000 vehicles in the U.S. to a 2017 recall for possible engine fires.
Two years ago the company recommended the vehicles be parked outdoors until problems are fixed. The expansion brings the total number of vehicles recalled for the problem to about 925,000.
The recall expansion covers a dozen 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year.

A lawsuit seeking to represent any woman with a claim against Harvey Weinstein can proceed on sex-trafficking grounds, a judge ruled Thursday, as he dramatically shrank the scope of an action trying to treat the disgraced movie producer and various companies like a mob organization.
U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein eliminated 17 claims against the once powerful movie mogul who has been accused by women in several lawsuits of seeking to trade his influence in Hollywood for sexual favors. Weinstein also faces trial in state court on criminal sexual assault charges.
From dozens of hacked computers, to hundreds of redactions, to thousands of subpoenas, we've laid out the most important numbers to know after Thursday's release of the redacted Mueller report.
