The late Sen. John McCain was "an old geezer." House Speaker Paul Ryan is "a complete and absolute nobody." And the investigation into possible collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia is a "witch hunt" led by "an establishment puppet."
Top model and Kardashian half-sister Kendall Jenner has been known to tout Estee Lauder's Drop Dead Red shade of lipstick. Jenner followers take note: the lipstick has ingredients that, according to health and beauty app Think Dirty, could be harmful. Think Dirty scans cosmetics labels and rates the lipstick a 7-or three points short of the dirtiest grade on a 1-to-10 scale. The putative culprit: polyethylene, a polymer commonly used in cosmetics that Think Dirty says could cause allergies in some people. (Estee Lauder Cos Inc. says polyethylene is not a known allergen.)
ISTANBUL - A spokesman for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's ruling party vowed Saturday that Turkey would "uncover what has happened" to Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, hours after Saudi authorities said that the Washington Post contributing columnist had been killed earlier this month during a fistfight inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.
Detroit Police Chief James Craig announced a "wide probe" into Michigan funeral homes Friday, Oct. 19, after hidden caches of baby corpses were allegedly discovered at two unrelated businesses inside a week. "This is deeply disturbing," Craig said at a news conference, hours after police raided Perry Funeral Home and allegedly seized 63 fetus or infant bodies, more than half of which were packed together in unrefrigerated boxes. "We want to understand the reasons: Is it financial gain? If so, how? Who knew or who else is involved in this?"

RIYADH - The Saudi government acknowledged early Saturday that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, saying he died during a fistfight, but the new account may do little to ease international demands for the kingdom to be held accountable. The announcement, which came in a tweet from the Saudi Foreign Ministry, said that an initial investigation by the government's general prosecutor found that the Saudi journalist had been in discussions with people inside the consulate when a quarrel broke out and escalated to a fatal fistfight.
WASHINGTON - The Trump administration's struggles to curtail illegal immigration have exposed a deep rift among the president and his top advisers, one that could lead to changes in the Cabinet and undermine the government's response to a record surge of migrant families at the southern border. Even as President Donald Trump continues to believe immigration will be a political winner next month in helping turn out his conservative base for the midterm elections, tensions in the West Wing have reached a boiling point. A profane shouting match over immigration this week among top aides prompted Chief of Staff John Kelly to storm out of the White House and marked the culmination of weeks of mounting anxiety, several senior administration officials said.
Rep. Jason Lewis, R-Minn., locked in a tight reelection battle, is facing fresh controversy over past comments as a conservative talk-radio host, this time for mocking women who said they were traumatized by unwanted sexual advances. CNN, which has delved into past recordings of Lewis' show, found audio from a November 2012 broadcast in which Lewis talks with a caller about allegations of sexual harassment that had been leveled against then-Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain from his tenure as president of the National Restaurant Association.
ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Paul Manafort, President Trump's onetime campaign chairman, is set to be sentenced Feb. 8 in an Alexandria federal court on eight bank and tax fraud crimes. Judge T.S. Ellis III set the sentencing date during a Friday afternoon hearing. The judge also dismissed 10 counts on which a jury deadlocked at Manafort's summertime trial. Legal experts said Manafort is likely to face about seven to 10 years in prison under federal sentencing guidelines. He also faces sentencing in a related case in the District, also brought by special counsel Robert Mueller.
