Bannon has not been subpoenaed for his testimony, the person said. Stone, whose trial begins Nov. 5, is accused of witness tampering, lying to Congress, and obstructing justice. The charges relate to his attempts to reach WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential campaign. Bannon and Stone were in contact during the campaign, according to emails obtained by the New York Times, and Stone suggested he had information that WikiLeaks planned to release damaging information on Trump rival Hillary Clinton.
A surge in violent clashes with police marked another deadly week of protests in Iraq, after two weeks ago over 150 were killed and over 6,000 wounded nationwide when the large-scale demonstrations began. On Friday over 40 protesters were killed in clashes with police, and according to security sources cited in Reuters, an "Iranian-backed militia opened fire to try to quell renewed demonstrations."
Steve Ricchetti, one of Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s closest confidantes, is reaching out to wary donors to shore up support. The Biden presidential campaign is watching costs — some staff members are sleeping at homes of volunteers — and facing criticism for spending on chartered jets. Mr. Biden’s team is also urging allies to redouble fund-raising efforts before the calendar turns to 2020 and he has fewer days to devote to the money trail.
And in a confidential memo to top bundlers this week, Mr. Biden’s campaign manager, Greg Schultz, sought to allay growing concerns that Mr. Biden is facing a cash crunch and won’t be able to stay competitive with his rivals on the airwaves and on the ground.
Millions of Californians are preparing to live in the dark again after the state’s largest utility warned it may cut power for the third time in as many weeks because of looming strong winds and high fire danger.

In a recent interview with the New York Times (in which he also endorsed Elizabeth Warren), the 89-year-old investor opined... “Trump is still doing a tremendous amount of damage,”... Soros says Trump "is an aberration, and he is clearly putting his personal interests ahead of the national interests," adding "That's a fact." "I think it will contribute to his demise next year. So I am slightly predicting that things will turn around."...
The new suspensions announced on Friday follow several other recent measures aimed at complicating travel to and within Cuba. In June, the Trump administration banned cruise ships and several other classes of vessels from travel to the island. Last week, the Commerce Department said it would restrict the leasing of commercial aircraft to Cuba’s state-owned airlines.
The number of bodies recovered from the mass grave could rise once again Saturday as searchers continue digging up and investigating the area, according to Sonora state officials. The women, part of the group Madres Buscadoras de Sonora, or Searching Mothers of Sonora, located the grave on Thursday along a state highway east of Puerto Peñasco... The identities of the dead are not yet known, and it's unclear how long the remains had been buried. Lupita Orduño, spokeswoman for the state's Attorney General's Office, said it was too early to come up with theories on why the bodies were buried in a mass grave because they first had to determine how they died or were killed.
The 17 rats were taught to drive in a rectangular area of the laboratory and were rewarded with snacks when they ‘passed’ the course. “We already knew that rodents could recognise objects, press bars, and find their way around mazes, but we wondered if rats could learn the more complex task of operating a moving vehicle,” said Kelly Lambert, professor of behavioral neuroscience at the University of Richmond. “They learned to navigate the car in unique ways and engaged in steering patterns they had never used to eventually arrive at the reward,” she said...
