The Latest News Headlines

  • President Donald Trump’s legal team is evaluating potential conflicts of interest among the investigators hired by special counsel Robert S. Mueller, according to several reports. >> Read more trending news  The New York Times reported that the president’s lawyers are digging into the professional and political backgrounds of Mueller’s team members, seeking information they could use to discredit the probe. The Times, quoting three unnamed sources, said the background checks could even be used to fire Mueller or get some members of his team recused. The Washington Post, also citing anonymous sources, said Trump’s lawyers are discussing the president’s authority to grant pardons. One source said Trump asked about his power to pardon aides, family members or even himself. Trump’s lawyers refused to comment on the issue, the Post reported. However, one adviser said the president was simply trying to understand the breadth of his pardoning authority, along with the limits of Mueller’s investigation. “This is not in the context of ‘I can’t wait to pardon myself,’” the Post reported, citing a close adviser. A conflict of interest is one instance that an attorney can cite to remove a special counsel from office under Justice Department rules, the Post reported. Mueller’s team has begun examining financial records and has requested documents from the Internal Revenue Service related to Paul J. Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, the Times reported. The records are from a criminal investigation that took place before Trump’s campaign began, and Manafort was not charged in that case, the Times reported. Meanwhile, Trump is reshuffling his legal team, CNN reported. Marc Kasowitz, Trump’s longtime personal attorney, will see his role diminished, CNN reported. John Dowd, along with Jay Sekolow, will take over as the president’s personal attorneys for the investigation, CNN reported. Dowd will be the lead attorney. Reuters reported early Friday that Trump’s outside legal team spokesman, Mark Corallo, has resigned.
  • Detectives with the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office Special Victim's Unit/ Sexual Predator Offender Tracking are asking the public to keep an eye out for Robert Ferrell, 35.   Ferrell is wanted for failing to register as a sex offender, among other charges.   The sheriff's office says Ferrell was just released from prison a week ago and told deputies two days ago that he was homeless and residing in the woods.   As part of his probation, Ferrell was court ordered to wear a GPS tracking device.  However, Ferrell allegedly cut off that device this past Tuesday around 6:00 pm and dumped it into a trash can in the 1900 block of US 1 South.   Ferrell is described as a white male, 5'8'' tall, 135 pounds with a shaved head. He also has tattoos all over his body, including a tattoo on the top of his shaved head that says 'FLORIDA' with a picture of a face next to it.   If you see Ferrell or know where he is, you're urged to contact Detective Kevin Green at (904) 209-3988 or by email at kgreen@sjso.org.
  • The Nevada Parole Board voted unanimously Thursday to grant former football star O.J. Simpson parole in his 2008 conviction on charges including kidnapping and armed robbery.  >> Read more trending news Simpson is expected to leave the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada this fall after nine years behind bars, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The decision came down Thursday after Simpson, 70, spoke before the Nevada Parole Board, telling the four-person panel he was remorseful for his actions in 2007. “I haven’t made any excuses in the nine years I’ve been here, and I’m not trying to make an excuse now,” he said. Simpson was sentenced to 33 years behind bars for his part in a 2007 armed robbery at a Las Vegas hotel room. He was found guilty on a dozen charges, including kidnapping. Simpson claimed he confronted a pair of memorabilia collectors, Bruce Fromong and Alfred Beardsley, in 2007 in an attempt to recover items that had been stolen from him, according to The Associated Press. Among the mementos and memorabilia he hoped to recover were family photos and his first wife’s wedding ring. Fromong spoke Thursday in favor of Simpson’s release and said he and Simpson had long ago made peace. “We all make mistakes,” Fromong said. “O.J. made his. He’s been here and from what I’ve been told he’s been a model inmate. He’s been an example to others.” Simpson had no disciplinary issues while behind bars and took numerous classes, according to testimony before the parole board. Simpson said he took a conflict resolution course that made a particular impact on him and said he had been called in to mediate issues between other inmates at the Lovelock Correction Center. Nevada Board of Parole commissioner Susan Jackson held up thick stacks of letters at Thursday’s hearing, some of the hundreds of letters she said the board had received from Simpson’s supporters and detractors. Many of the letters mentioned Simpson’s 1995 acquittal in the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend, Ron Goldman. Jackson said the case would not be considered in Thursday’s deliberations. Parole board commissioner Connie Bisbee said Simpson has plans to resettle in Florida, where he was living before his 2008 conviction. Officials in Florida said in a statement that “if Nevada’s request meets all criteria, Florida must accept the transfer.” “As is the case with any offender who transfers under this routine procedure, he will be assigned a Florida probation officer and will be supervised in accordance with the conditions of his parole,” said Michelle Glady, director of communications for the Florida Department of Corrections. Simpson in 2013 was granted parole on the armed robbery conviction. Thursday’s hearing addressed the other 11 charges from his 2008 conviction, according to USA Today. Simpson, a former football running back who has appeared in nearly two dozen movies and television shows, was found not guilty of murder in 1995 after Brown and Goldman were found stabbed to death outside Brown’s Los Angeles townhouse. The case, which captivated TV audiences around the globe, was dubbed the “Trial of the Century.”
