(Reuters) - U.S. prosecutors have asked a judge to limit telephone access for an Ohio man, who is accused of plotting an attack on the U.S. Capitol and claims sympathy with Islamic State militants, after he was interviewed from jail by a Cincinnati television station. Christopher Cornell, 20, told Cincinnati's FOX 19 WXIX TV that if FBI agents had not arrested him in January, he would have shot President Barack Obama in the head and planted pipe bombs on the Capitol and at the Israeli Embassy.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A verdict saying Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke copied Marvin Gaye's music to create their hit song "Blurred Lines" could ripple across the music industry, potentially changing how artists work and opening the door to new copyright claims.
A leading Republican critic of Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday he wants the former secretary of state to testify about her controversial use of personal email for government work by April, timing that could coincide with her expected launch of a 2016 presidential campaign. "I would like to have it done by April," Representative Trey Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican who chairs a congressional committee investigating the 2012 attacks on a U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, said on Wednesday. He told MSNBC he wanted answers on the emails "sooner rather than later," and said other congressional panels could also take Clinton to task over her use of a private email address and a private server at her home in New York state for official emails, rather than using government systems. Democratic sources have said Clinton, who is the frontrunner among potential Democratic candidates, could formally announce her plans as early as April.
