‘We finally put a name and a face to this monster.’ Illinois officials ID killer of 16-year-old girl in 1976. Man, now dead, believed to be linked to other cases.

The hacking suggest the Russian government might want to interfere in the US presidential election again.
Is the Russian government trying to help President Donald Trump’s electoral chances yet again?
Burisma — the Ukrainian natural gas company whose board Hunter Biden served on — was hacked by the Russian military late last year, the New York Times’s Nicole Perlroth and Matthew Rosenberg reported Monday, citing a security firm that attributed the hack.
Trump has long been obsessed with the idea that there is some sort of corruption involving Burisma and the Bidens, though he’s had no evidence to prove it. And he tried to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate the topic earlier this year, a request that spurred a whistleblower complaint from a government official and, eventually, Trump’s impeachment.

Following Washington’s decision to withdraw from the deal in May 2018, Iran began dropping its commitments under the deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
