Roger Stone jurors reach no verdict after first day of deliberations

Roger Stone jurors reach no verdict after first day of deliberationsJurors in the Roger Stone trial spent more than five hours Thursday ensconced in the Washington, D.C., federal courthouse without reaching a verdict. The only indication of how the jury was leaning came via two notes passed to the U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, expressing confusion about what appeared to be just one of the charges against the longtime GOP strategist. The 12-person jury, composed of nine women and three men, will return Friday morning for a second day of deliberations as they weigh the fate of the one-time Donald Trump adviser who is fighting charges of lying to Congress and obstructing lawmakers’ probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Korea calls Biden a ‘rabid dog’ for insulting its dignityNorth Korea called former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden a “rabid dog” that “must be beaten to death with a stick” in its latest swipe against foreign and political leaders it sees as hostile to the North’s leadership. The North correctly spelled Biden’s name in May when it labeled him a “fool of low IQ” after he called North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a tyrant during a speech. North Korea often insults foreign leaders and politicians over what it sees as slanderous remarks toward its leadership or hostile policies against its government.
