    (CNN)For the first time in nearly 70 years, the United States will execute a man for a crime he committed as a teenager.Christopher Vialva, 40, is set to receive the death penalty on Thursday at a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana. He was convicted 20 years ago for the 1999 murders of two youth ministers in Fort Hood, Texas. At the time of the crime, he was 19 years old. The crime was egregious, his attorney and other advocates agree. But given decades of research since then on adolescent brain development, the announcement from the Justice Department raises a key question: Should a person be given the ultimate punishment for a crime they committed in their youth?US government executes...
    WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Joe Biden said Wednesday that while he trusts what scientists say about a potential coronavirus vaccine, he doesn’t trust President Donald Trump. His comments come as the debate over a vaccine — how it will be evaluated and distributed when it’s ready — has taken center stage in the presidential race with seven weeks to go until the November election. Trump and Biden have been trading accusations that the other is undermining public trust in a potential coronavirus vaccine. Biden has expressed concerns that the vaccine approval process could be politicized, while Trump and his allies counter that such comments from Biden and other Democrats are turning off the public to a potentially lifesaving vaccine when...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden says he trusts the scientists -- not President Trump -- when it comes to producing a safe and effective coronavirus vaccine. The former vice president, speaking and taking questions from reporters in Delaware on Wednesday after sitting down for a coronavirus pandemic briefing with his team of health experts, also stressed that the efforts to produce and distribute a vaccine for COVID-19 should not be “distorted by political considerations.” Biden accused Trump of “feckless inaction” in combating the outbreak and charged that the president had undercut the use of masks, which he called “the easiest, most effective means we have of reducing the spread of this disease.” TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR EVENTUAL VACCINE ROLLOUT FOR...
    Democratic nominee Joe Biden demanded 'transparency' from President Donald Trump in developing and distributing a coronavirus vaccine, as the White House has continued to push that one would be available to every American by the end of the year.  'So let me be clear, I trust vaccines. I trust the scientists. But I don't trust Donald Trump - and the American people can't either,' Biden said during a brief speech Wednesday afternoon from Wilmington, Delaware's Queen theater.   Biden floated that Trump could be fast-tracking a vaccine to help his re-election chances, noting that 'scientific breakthroughs don't care about calendars any more than the virus does.'  Democratic nominee Joe Biden demanded 'transparency' in the development and the distribution of a...
    Michael Caputo, a former Trump campaign staffer who now serves as spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services, floated a series of conspiracy theories in a Facebook video reported by the New York Times. According to the Times, in the video that aired Sunday Caputo baselessly accused scientists from the CDC of forming a “resistance unit” for “sedition” against President Donald Trump. The comments come days after Politico reported that Caputo has led an effort to interfere with reporting on the coronavirus pandemic from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. House Democrats said Thursday they would be investigating “efforts by political appointees at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to block the publication of...

    Germany said today it has 'unequivocal proof' that Russian dissident Alexei Navalny was poisoned with the nerve agent Novichok.  Tests carried out at a military laboratory found evidence of the Soviet-era chemical weapon that was used to attack Sergei Skripal in Salisbury in 2018. Navalny remains in a coma in a Berlin hospital nearly two weeks after collapsing on a plane in Siberia, which made an emergency landing when he suddenly fell ill.  Germany today condemned the 'alarming' poison plot and demanded an urgent explanation from Moscow, which has denied any involvement in the anti-Putin campaigner's illness.  While Berlin stopped short of accusing Russia directly, Navalny's aide Ivan Zhdanov said Novichok 'can only be used by the state' - suggesting that...
