GOP senators are calling for a special ethics hearing after Democrats alleged two Republican senators received thousands in fraudulent travel reimbursements from taxpayers.
The alleged double-dipping date back to campaign finance reports that Cushing filed this year and Collins filed in 2014.
Two women who used an Internet chat room to raise several thousand dollars for the Somali militant group al-Shabab have been convicted of providing support to a terrorist organization.
 their defense lawyers argued that the money they raised went to people who were not clearly defined members of al-Shabab.
They also argued that the women intended the money to be used to support safe houses sheltering injured al-Shabab soldiers.
 they argued that sending money to a safehouse in Kenya that cared for injured al-Shabab soldiers could not be held against the women, because providing funds for medicine in an armed conflict cannot be considered a criminal act under international treaties.
The defense also raised First Amendment issues, saying their advocacy for al-Shabab should not be fodder for a criminal conviction.
Al-Shabab, which has been linked to al-Qaida, claimed responsibility for terrorist attacks including the 2013 attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Kenya that killed 67 people.
The hacked emails — some mundane, others laced with intrigue about election strategy, snarky barbs, whining about salaries or perceived slights — provide an inside, real-time view of the insecurities, sniping and self-promotion that churn beneath the surface of a heated presidential campaign.
Despite Trump's bombast, no bombshell revelation has emerged to significantly alter the presidential race or prompt calls for the Democratic nominee to drop out — as happened with Trump following the leak of a decade-old video of him vulgarly bragging about groping women.
Rather than the well-oiled, octopus-tentacled cartel of international conspiracy painted by Trump, the Clinton Foundation in Podesta's emails is riven by rumors, funding woes and internal feuds — among them a bitter rift between the candidate's daughter, Chelsea Clinton, and a former aide of her father, former President Bill Clinton.
While the leaks do underscore the coziness between the Clintons and well-heeled donors, Trump's reliance on the hacked emails has given even some in his own party pause, especially as he has continued to express admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In a 2015 exchange with Podesta, liberal operative Neera Tanden wrote of Harvard Law School Professor Lawrence Lessig, I f(asterisk)(asterisk)king hate that guy, calling him a smug, ''pompous, loathsome man whom a reasonable person might wish to kick the s(asterisk)(asterisk)t out of on Twitter.
Lessig, an advocate of campaign finance reform who launched a modest protest campaign for president, wrote on his blog that he got off an airliner after a flight to visit his father to find his email inbox flooded with messages about the hacked exchange.
