An explosive Lifetime documentary series covering distressing allegations against R. Kelly has reportedly prompted a criminal investigation in Georgia, while prosecutors in Chicago are urging any victims to come forward.

Kelly — who’s faced numerous accusations of sexual misconduct, which he’s denied — is accused of manipulating women and controlling their lives.
A Pennsylvania foster family beat and starved three young children over a period of six years, even staging a videotaped fight between two of the children in an effort to cover their tracks, police said.
According to a police affidavit, the Parises beat the children — who were 6, 3, and 11 months when they were placed in the home in 2011 — with a belt and paddle and withheld food from them. When the children were fed, they were made to eat cross-legged on the floor with a hand behind the back, and were largely given bologna sandwiches and sometimes chicken, authorities said.
Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), the third-ranking Democrat in the House, on Wednesday said he believes lawmakers are "very close to a deal" to end the partial government shutdown that has lasted nearly three weeks, despite few signs from President Trump that he's willing to give in on his demand for border wall funding.
Clyburn said on CNN's "New Day" that Democrats will introduce a series of bills on Wednesday that would individually fund agencies affected by the ongoing shutdown that are not related to the dispute over border security funds.
Democrats and some Republicans are expected to vote to fund the Treasury Department, followed by the Departments of Agriculture, the Interior, Transportation and Housing and Urban Development.

According to the Daily Sabah, Bolton has gone "rogue" and has tried to undermine Trump's Syria pullout decision by setting his own preconditions. The newspaper claims that:
A soft coup against Trump is underway in the United States. In recent days, the author of the infamous op-ed in The New York Times, have repeatedly lied to the American people in an attempt to force Trump to walk back from his comments about Syria.
Bolton has been trying to convince Trump to hold off on withdrawing 2,000+ US troops from Syria. During a Sunday interview, Bolton revealed the change in direction, which has contradicted messages issued from both Pentagon and admin officials. On Monday, Trump slammed the New York Times piece that heavily quoted Bolton saying it was “a very inaccurate story on my intentions for Syria,”. The US delegation was caught on camera appearing disunited among themselves while exiting the presidential compound in Ankara, Turkey.
Appearing at a Cal Fire station on his first full day in office, Newsom said the new funding would come on top of $200 million already earmarked for forestry management by the Legislature last fall, bringing the total to $305 million in new spending.
