The Senate Intelligence Committee has “made multiple criminal referrals” to special counsel Robert Mueller in the Trump-Russia investigation, reports NBC News.

The report says that Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) disclosed the news on Thursday, but added, “we’re not going to talk about any individuals.”

The Senate committee has been investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and that they are now “combing through witness testimony for possible misleading or untruthful statements.”

The news on the referrals is also sourced to Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) who said the committee “made referrals where appropriate.”

“I am very glad the special counsel is pursuing those who mislead members of congress,” she said.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) says that Donald Trump Jr. might be in trouble for lying to the committee.

“My impression from watching Donald Trump Jr. in that meeting is that he evaded and contradicted himself in many of his answers,” Blumenthal said on the day the transcript was released. “I have no confidence that he has told the whole truth.”

"He spent a decade unsuccessfully pursuing projects in China, operating an office there during his first run for president and forging a partnership with a major government-controlled company."

The FDA repeatedly stood up to Trump on coronavirus — and even won some victories: NYT

President Donald J. Trump has repeatedly tried to undermine the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) and now, with just two weeks until Election Day, the world is learning more about the behind-the-scenes battles that have shaken these governmental entities to the core.

Approximately two weeks after Trump's release from Walter Reed Medical Center, there is no "cure," as the president stated, and he is not "immune." No one is immune - and there is no successful vaccine, regardless of how much Trump claims one will arrive before Nov. 3. The F.D.A. published the guidelines in briefing materials to an advisory committee that will discuss them on Thursday, effectively making them official. To be clear, the F.D.A.has not approved Trump's miraculous cure of a cocktail - even though he has claimed differently.

Lawmakers more optimistic on COVID stimulus as election day looms

Published

Chances for approving a new spending package to support the US economy improved dramatically on Tuesday after the senior Democratic lawmaker said a bill is in the works and the top Senate Republican said he would bring it to a vote.

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Bloomberg TV that legislators are starting to commit the measure to paper and she is optimistic it can win bipartisan support.

Whether policymakers can complete the negotiations in time for Congress to approve the package before the November 3 presidential election, however, remains a question mark.

"Our economy needs it. Hopefully by the end of the day today, we will know where we are," she said in an interview. "We are starting to write the bill."
