Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation looms larger for President Donald Trump every day, but when it comes to legal jeopardy, the President has far more to worry about than just the special counsel.

Trump is now facing a triple-barreled litigation drama involving a porn actress, a reality show star and a former Playboy model that promises further embarrassing allegations.

Austin bombing suspect remains an enigma despite confession:

Mark Anthony Conditt recorded a confession and killed himself in a final explosion, ending a wave of package bombings that terrorized Austin for weeks.

It’s official: NYC hasn’t seen snow like this in 130 years:

The snow has been falling all day in New York City.

For most New Yorkers, the snow was probably a drag. For a record seeker like myself, this late season snow storm allowed me to catch my snow white whale.
This marks the fifth consecutive season that at least 30 inches of snow have fallen in New York City. The only other recorded time it snowed this much, for this long a period, was back in the 1880s (records begin in the 1869-1870 season).
