Pastor apologises for asking students to spit on and cut him in Easter demonstration
A US church has been forced to apologise after a part-time associate pastor urged children to spit on, slap, and even cut him with a steak knife.The preacher at Impact City Church in Ohio, named Jaddeus Dempsey, was leading an after-school activity intended to explain "the very important topic of crucifixion".Mr Dempsey said the exercise was his idea alone and that no one else knew about his plans.One of the students who took part, aged 12, said: "I thought it was very weird and awkward."I took part because I thought it was OK because it was coming from an adult.""The reactions are appropriate," said the lead pastor, Justin Ross, speaking of the harsh response the church had received. "Many of you were disgusted, many of you were hurt by this, many of you were very confused." Mr Ross noted the activity was inappropriate, but he also said the "intent was honourable".Mr Ross added: "[Jesus] chose to allow them to spit on him and beat him and crucify him in order to take the payment of our debt that we call sin.""So Jaddeus, in an effort to share that message of love through the gospel and the story of Jesus' crucifixion, he shared this illustration and tried to share some of the pain that Jesus took on that day."In his apology, Mr Dempsey said: "I am so sorry for misrepresenting the community, the church, the parents, the students and anybody that I hurt," said Dempsey. "It was not my intention. My intention was just to show them how much Jesus loves them and I lo

FBI Arrests New Mexico Border Militia Leader Larry Mitchell Hopkins
PAUL RATJE/GettyThe FBI arrested a 69-year-old New Mexico man who allegedly illegally detained immigrants crossing the border under the guise of working for the United States Border Patrol.Larry Mitchell Hopkins, who runs The United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), an armed border militia group that spreads far-right conspiracies and rounds up asylum seekers on the border, was arrested by FBI in New Mexico Saturday on charges of possessing firearms and ammunition as a convicted felon. Recent video footage released by UCP shows two members holding what appear to be semi-automatic rifles near immigrants, many of them children. The group also peddles conspiracy theories and produces a radio show where members spread information about QAnon, and accuse migrants of associating with ISIS. Hopkins has also claimed that president Trump has personally asked him about ‘Muslim immigration.'UCP and Hopkins claim to work with Border Patrol, which has publicly denied doing so. Border Patrol agents sometimes appear in the periphery of the groups videos, which show camo-clad UCP members interacting with migrants at the southern border."There's no question about whether or not we work with Border Patrol," said Jim, a UCP spokesperson who declined to give his last name. "That's all documented, and not just once. It's documented hundreds and hundreds of times over in the videos that I post.""U.S. Customs and Border Protection does not endorse private groups or organizations taking enforcement matters into their own hand

Team Trump plots revenge on Mueller amid calls to 'investigate the investigators'
Donald Trump and his allies are attempting to turn his two-year Russia investigation saga into a political boost for the 2020 presidential election in the wake of the Mueller report.  The president's Justice Department is looking into the inquiry's origins to see if US intelligence over-stepped the line, cheered on by supporters who want to "investigate the investigators".  The Trump re-election campaign is fundraising off the report, attempting to raise $1 million with emails titled "EXONERATED (again)" and "CONFIRMED: NO COLLUSION".  Figures close to the White House have also told The Sunday Telegraph that they believe Mr Trump could benefit from any impeachment move, triggering a backlash from US voters who see it as rushed.  The emerging strategy suggests that far from drawing a line under the report by special counsel Robert Mueller, Mr Trump is preparing to use it as a rallying cry for his support base.  In tweets late on Friday night, Mr Trump dubbed Mr Mueller's investigation a "big, fat, waste of time, energy and money" and signposted his determination to scrutinise how it begun.  "It is now finally time to turn the tables and bring justice to some very sick and dangerous people who have committed very serious crimes, perhaps even spying or treason," he tweeted. "This should never happen again!" Mr Mueller's findings, published on Thursday after a 22-month investigation, found there was no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin in the 2016 US electio

Elizabeth Warren becomes first 2020 candidate to call for Trump's impeachment
The Massachusetts senator is the most senior Democrat to call for the start of impeachment proceedings against TrumpWarren's remarks make her one of the most prominent Democratic voices to advocate for impeachment. Photograph: Yuri Gripas/ReutersElizabeth Warren on Friday became the most senior Democrat, and the first 2020 presidential candidate, to call for the start of impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump following the release of the special counsel's report on Russian interference in the 2016 US election and the Trump campaign. "To ignore a president's repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage on this country, and it would suggest that both the current and future presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways," the Democratic senator from Massachusetts said in a statement Friday, one day after the release of a redacted version of a 448-page summary of Robert Mueller's nearly two-year investigation."The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States," Warren said. Mueller put the next step in the hands of Congress: "Congress has authority to prohibit a President's corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice." The correct process for
