Federal investigators are looking into a potential “bribery-for-pardon” scheme involving presidential pardons, according to federal court documents unsealed by the chief judge for the federal court in Washington D.C.. The heavily redacted documents do not name the individuals involved or President Donald Trump. They also do not indicate if any White House officials had knowledge of the scheme. "This political strategy to obtain a presidential pardon was 'parallel' to and distinct from" one individual's role as an attorney advocate for" another individual, the ruling said, redacting both names. The White House declined to comment.

All schools in Germany are open, and discussions about possible closures have focused mainly on high schools.

Slideshow ( 3 images )MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Among the new cardinals formally installed by Pope Francis on Saturday is an outspoken Mexican cleric who has spent decades ministering to the mostly poor, indigenous communities near the country’s southern border with Guatemala. The 80-year-old Arizmendi, author of more than 30 books and a regular newspaper columnist, is just past the cut-off age to be able to vote in future papal conclaves, where new popes are elected. Over the past decade, he has also railed against what he described as the spread of “homosexualism” from cities to rural areas. The most high-profile new cardinal is Wilton Gregory, the 72-year-old archbishop of Washington D.C. and first-ever African American selected. While Europe still has the largest share of cardinals under the age of 80 with 41%, that is down from 52% in 2013 when Francis became the first Latin American pope.

A green light for any vaccine would come as welcome news to Americans, who political leaders have clamped under increasingly aggressive measures to curtail the spread of the virus. But the ruling could drive legal challenges against similar limits placed on houses of worship in other states, including California. “Remember, skip the crowds and shop from home this Black Friday,” Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear, a first-term Democrat, wrote on Twitter. Some politicians and health experts feared Americans traveling for Thanksgiving could spread the contagion. Many heeded advice to stay home on Thursday but others chose to travel, saying they were willing to risk illness to see family.

Demonstrators display signs calling for an end to evictions and foreclosures during a rally at Boston Housing Court outside the Edward W. Brooke Courthouse on Oct. 29, 2020. Expiring state eviction bans have led to hundreds of thousands of additional coronavirus cases, new research finds, raising alarm about what will happen when the national eviction moratorium lapses next month. During the pandemic, 43 states, plus Washington D.C., temporarily barred evictions, which at one point estimated the move would displace as many as 40 million people. Many of the moratoriums lasted just 10 weeks, while some states continue to ban the proceedings. The study period was from March to early September, before the most recent spike in cases.

Pennsylvania officially certified Biden's victory on Tuesday. Donald Trump is reportedly set to travel to Pennsylvania on Wednesday to address a Republican-organized event promoting baseless allegations of voter fraud in the state. "It's in everyone's interest to have a full vetting of election irregularities and fraud," Giuliani said, in a statement reported by Bloomberg. Trump and his campaign continue to insist, without evidence, that widespread voter fraud led to his defeat earlier this month, and has put Pennsylvania at the centre of their baseless claims.

That has given current homeowners unprecedented potential to save on their monthly payments through a refinance. With the latest record low of 2.72% on Freddie Mac's weekly 30-year fixed average, the number of 'high-quality' mortgage refinance candidates jumped to 19.4 million, according to Black Knight, a mortgage technology and data provider. More than 4.5 million borrowers can save at least $400 a month, and 2.7 million could save more than $500 per month, by refinancing at today's rates. The numbers of potential refinance candidates do vary by state, given populations and home values. Nearly 1.4 million high quality refinance candidates could potentially save a collective $606 million per month by refinancing for an average monthly savings of $437 per homeowner.

People celebrate on Black Lives Matter plaza across from the White House in Washington, DC on November 7, 2020, after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Americans poured into the streets Saturday after Joe Biden's projected presidential election victory over President Donald Trump. Trump's supporters, meanwhile, continued to demonstrate in support of the president's unfounded claims that malfeasance in swing states cost him the election. The jubilation, and disappointment, reflected an election that shattered total voting records: Biden is expected to become the first U.S. presidential candidate to receive 75 million votes nationwide, while Trump has also garnered more than 70 million votes. He returned to find streets outside the White House overrun with people celebrating his loss.
