Alabama woman who joined ISIS is begging to come home:

At the age of 19, a young woman from Hoover, Alabama traveled to Syria to join ISIS — the so-called “Islamic State.”

Five years and three husbands later, she says she regrets what she did and is begging to return to the US.

In a recent handwritten note obtained by CNN from a family representative, Hoda Muthana writes, “When I left to Syria I was a naive, angry, and arrogant young woman. I thought that I understood my religious beliefs.”
But after witnessing the devastation of war, including the death of two husbands, Muthana said she became disillusioned.

Ex-Seahawks Player T.J. Cunningham Dies at Age 46:

Former Seattle Seahawks safety T.J. Cunningham died Sunday at the age of 46.

According to Melissa Alonso of CNN, police said Cunningham was shot and killed by 31-year-old Marcus Johnson after a dispute over a parking spot in Centennial, Colorado.

Johnson was arrested on suspicion of first-degree attempted murder.

Cunningham played for the Seahawks in 1996 after a standout collegiate career at the University of Colorado.

The Seahawks selected Cunningham with the 209th overall pick in the sixth round of the 1996 NFL draft. He appeared in nine games during his first and only NFL season and recorded one fumble recovery before a knee injury cut his career short.

Trump’s loyalty obsession could lead to obstruction case:

President Donald Trump’s craving for loyalty from his top law enforcement officials and alleged efforts to topple those whom he perceives as threats could be leading him into deep trouble — and even put his presidency in peril.

The New York Times provided a fresh glimpse into Trump’s persistent efforts to shield himself from swirling scandals with a report that the President sought to install someone he saw as an ally atop an investigation by New York prosecutors into his former lawyer Michael Cohen.
Then, in an interview with CNN, former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe — who was instrumental in opening an obstruction inquiry against Trump — made his strongest claim yet that he was fired hours before his scheduled retirement as a result of an internal investigation rigged against him at the instigation of the President.

Chicago police want to talk to Jussie Smollett, but they don’t know when that’ll happen:

Chicago detectives want to speak to actor Jussie Smollett — but it’s not clear when, or if, that will happen.

Police want to ask Smollett additional questions about the attack he reported on January 29, but as of Tuesday morning, Smollett’s attorneys had not indicated when their client will be available to talk to police. Smollett told authorities that two men attacked him, putting a rope around his neck and pouring an unknown chemical substance on him.
Two brothers, who were arrested and released in connection with the attack, met with police and prosecutors at a Chicago courthouse on Tuesday, Chicago police spokesman Tom Ahern said. The county’s top prosecutor, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, has recused herself from the investigation, according to a spokeswoman from her office.
