Man Found Alive In Senior Complex Destroyed By Fire

(Washington, DC) — DC Fire officials say a man was pulled alive from the rubble of a destroyed seniors home in DC’s Navy Yard neighborhood today, five days after a fire tore through the building. The man was found inside the Arthur Capper Senior Apartments as crews worked to clean up the aftermath of the fire that took place Wednesday. He was rushed to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. It’s not clear at this time whether the man exited the building after the fire and re-entered, or if he was trapped in the building since the fire last week.

Rosenstein To Meet With Trump On Thursday

(Washington, DC) — Rod Rosenstein will meet with President Trump on Thursday, amid conflicting reports as to whether the Deputy Attorney General will resign or be fired. Trump is at the annual UN meetings in New York and cannot meet face-to-face with Rosenstein, but today White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the two men have talked extensively by phone about last week’s explosive New York Times report. Rosenstein has strongly denied the report that he considered wearing a wire in meetings with Trump last year. He also denied discussing the 25th Amendment in an effort to replace the President. NBC reported that Rosenstein claimed he was joking about wearing a wire.

Cosby Trial Resumes

(Norristown, PA) — The Pennsylvania courtroom in the Bill Cosby sexual assault sentencing phase is coming back from a break. The morning session ended after an expert for the prosecution testified Cosby has a “personality disorder” and agrees Cosby is a Sexually Violent Predator. That designation would force him into check-ins with the police for the rest of his life and monthly counseling. Meanwhile, Cosby’s lawyer Joseph Green is scrambling to find his own expert witness to fight the SVP claim. Green told the judge witness Dr. Timothy Foley was a no-show, but Judge Steven O’Neill said Green “put the court in a tough spot” because he can’t rule until he hears from both experts. Green said they’d reach out to the doctor and, at worse, he would testify tomorrow. The 81-year-old Cosby could be sentenced to years in prison.
