Former Trump campaign staffer drops lawsuit but stands by claims he forcibly kissed her

Washington (CNN)A former Trump campaign staffer who accused Donald Trump of forcibly kissing her without her consent in 2016 has dropped her lawsuit against the President, saying it’s difficult to pursue “justice against a person with unlimited resources.” Trump’s attorney, Charles Harder, said in a statement Thursday that Johnson, by “giving up the case, represents total victory for President Trump, and fully vindicates him of Johnson’s false accusations.” According to Harder, Johnson signed a nondisclosure agreement with the Trump campaign in 2016 and her statements in court and outside of court regarding Trump and his campaign constitute “numerous breaches” of the agreement. “The President and Campaign are weighing their legal options against Ms. Johnson at this time, and have demanded …

US Air Force orders review over Trump resort stays

The US Air Force said its crews had obeyed all the rules, but said “lodging at higher-end accommodations, even if within government rates, might be allowable but not advisable”.

My Uterus Ruptured During Labor. Here’s What Happened Next.

“Do you want to squeeze my hand?” he asks, ever the good coach. As I flex and relax with every contraction, I think back to two years earlier when our daughter was born. She came at 35 weeks, with the cord wrapped around her neck twice and tied in a knot. She thrived after delivery and we always figured that would be our traumatic birth story. Still, in the car on that warm January day, I can’t help but notice that something about this labor with Jacob feels different.  My pain is an 8 out of 10 on the pain scale and because my contractions are so strong and fast, I feel little relief between them. Nevertheless, I cling to …

New York (CNN Business)Pizza Hut had struggled to compete against Domino’s and Papa John’s for the past few years.

Florida’s Fate In Hurricane Dorian May Be A Matter Of Miles

The National Hurricane Center forecasts Dorian to be 40 to 50 miles off the Florida coast on Tuesday and Wednesday, with hurricane-force wind speeds extending about 35 miles to the west. And much of the Florida coast is inside that cone. Center Director Ken Graham is telling residents don’t bet on safety just because his office specific forecast track has the storm just a bit offshore. And making matters more touch-and-go is that with every new forecast, “we keep nudging (Dorian’s track) a little bit to the left,” which is closer to the Florida coast, he said. “Where it doesn’t directly hit, it’s not going to be a huge problem,” Colorado State University hurricane researcher Phil Klotzbach said. This is …
