In other news, the Supreme Court has set a December 1st hearing date for the Mississippi abortion ban that could lead to the end of Roe v Wade.

Meanwhile, the European Court of Human Rights has found 'beyond a reasonable doubt' that Russia was responsible for assassinating Alexander Litvinenko in Britain in 2006.

Finally, two GOP operatives have been charged for funneling Russian money into the Trump campaign.

According to an indictment unsealed in federal court in the District of Columbia, Jesse Benton and Doug Wead "conspired to illegally funnel thousands of dollars of foreign money from a Russian foreign national into an election for the Office of President of the United States of America."

U.S. law bans foreign nationals from donating money to presidential campaigns.

According to the indictment, Benton and Wead helped a Russian national get a ticket to a fundraiser with Trump in Pennsylvania in September 2016.

The Russian, who was not identified in the indictment, donated $25,000 to political action committees associated with Trump in order to attend the event, according to prosecutors.
