No 'Specific Evidence' Of Collusion Between Trump
And Russian-Linked Facebook Ads

(WFB) Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier (Calif.) said Wednesday there is no "specific evidence" of collusion between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russian-linked Facebook ads.

CNN's Jake Tapper asked Speier, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, about the subject on "The Lead." CNN reported Wednesday that a number of Russian-linked ads on Facebook targeted Michigan and Wisconsin, which Trump flipped from blue to red in 2016.

"Do you know of any evidence right now that anyone in the United States, whether they were associated with the Trump campaign or not, helped these Russian operatives with information about where to target these ads or voters to target?" Tapper asked.

"We don't have any specific evidence," Speier said. "But these were sophisticated persons who were doing the targeting."

 Megyn Kelly NBC's '$69 Million Mistake!'

(Daily Mail) NBC executives not involved in her hiring are furious over Megyn Kelly's 'obscene' $23 million salary for her tanking morning show and think it's a slap in the face to other established stars at the network, DailyMailTV has exclusively revealed.

Although it was rumored the former Fox News anchor was only being paid $17 million for her new role at NBC, Kelly will actually line her pockets with a total of $69 million over the course of three years for swapping politics for talk show antics.

Her hefty salary has drawn the scorn of senior NBC and Comcast executives who believe the 46-year-old shouldn't be raking in more than the network's veteran stars.

Although NBC has thrown its weight behind the new show, Kelly's ratings tanked on Wednesday, critics have slammed the star for not connecting with her audience and she has found herself in a string of uncomfortable celebrity guest encounters.

Edmonton Attacker Was Ordered
Deported From U.S. In 2011

(CBC) The Somali refugee accused of stabbing an Edmonton police constable on the weekend and running down four pedestrians was ordered to be deported from the United States in 2011 by a U.S. immigration judge, CBC News has learned.

In July 2011, U.S. Customs and Border Protection transferred Abdulahi Hasan Sharif into the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at Otay Mesa Detention Center in San Diego, Calif., according to Jennifer D. Elzea, acting press secretary for the ICE office of public affairs.

Two months later, on Sept. 22, 2011, an immigration judge ordered Sharif removed to Somalia. Sharif waived his right to appeal that decision.

But Sharif was released on Nov. 23, 2011, on an ICE order of supervision, "due to a lack of likelihood of his removal in the reasonably foreseeable future," Elzea said in a statement to CBC News.

Woman Reportedly Received 20,000 Oxycodone Pills
In Mail Instead Of Yoga Mat

(Fox News) A woman in South Carolina called police Saturday afternoon after she reportedly received a large package of illegal drugs in the mail, worth around $400,000, instead of the yoga mat she ordered.

The woman, who chose to remain anonymous, said she was expecting a yoga mat to be delivered that day and was shocked when she was handed the box full of oxycodone pills, WSOC reported.

There were reportedly so many pills in the box that she said they were spilling out of the bag they were packaged in. After opening the box, she called the police and said she didn't know who would've used her name and address, the Rock Hill Herald said.

The police reportedly seized the drugs and notified the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit, who have opened an investigation. Investigators said the box contained two bags with roughly 10,000 pills each, the Herald reported.

Amazon Is Ordered To Pay Nearly $300 Million By EU
Over 'Illegal Tax Advantage'

(CNBC) Amazon was ordered to pay 250 million euros ($294 million) to Luxembourg on Wednesday after the European Commission said the online retailer had received illegal tax benefits.

According to regulators, Amazon received tax advantages between 2006 and 2014 in the country without any "valid justification."

"Luxembourg gave illegal tax benefits to Amazon. As a result, almost three quarters of Amazon's profits were not taxed," Margrethe Vestager, the EU's commissioner for competition, said in a statement.

"In other words, Amazon was allowed to pay four times less tax than other local companies subject to the same national tax rules. This is illegal under EU state aid rules. Member states cannot give selective tax benefits to multinational groups that are not available to others," she added.

You Be The Judge: Was This
11-Year-Old Girl's Dress 'Distracting'?

(Lifezette) A school in Montana is catching heat from a grandmother over its dress code.

Vegas, an 11-year-old middle schooler, showed up for picture day in a new gray dress with large pink flowers, paired with opaque black leggings. The adolescent was excited to show off her ensemble for pictures, but was met with a dress-code citation instead -- for "showing her shoulders."

"My beautiful granddaughter Vegas got dress coded today, her sister bought her this dress and they told her to change it because it was distracting," her grandmother, Sandra Lynn Beeler Darling, wrote in a Facebook post. "It was picture day and she wanted to look cute; she is 11."

Vegas, whom Darling describes as "quiet and reserved," Yahoo Lifestyle reported, was devastated by the citation.

Two-Seater 'Passenger Drone' That Could
Revolutionize The Daily Commute

(Daily Mail) Incredible images and video footage have captured the first manned flight of an autonomous drone that could revolutionize the daily commute.

Wisconsin Duo Refused To Cease Car Sex

(Smoking Gun) A pair of naked Wisconsinites repeatedly ignored a cop's demands that they cease having sex in the backseat of a parked car, a brush off that resulted in their arrest for engaging in lewd and lascivious conduct.
