18 years ago, every heart in our nation broke at the tragedy that fell upon New York City, the Pentagon, and Pennsylvania. In a series of coordinated attacks planned by al-Qaeda, four-passenger airliners were hijacked and used as weapons, resulting in the deaths of 2,996 people.
Two planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, crashed into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center Complex, causing the collapse of both structures. The third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, crashed into the Pentagon – the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense – in Arlington County, Virginia, which led to the collapse of the building’s west side. The final plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was flown towards Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The passengers of that plane heroically thwarted the hijackers and gave their lives to save others.
LIVE Updates from Robert Mueller's Testimony on Trump and Russia
Today at 8:30 a.m. ET, former Special Counsel Robert Mueller will deliver his long-awaited testimony before members of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee about his investigation into President Donald Trump and Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Following the U.S. women's historic fourth World Cup victory on Sunday, #EqualPay began trending on Twitter, reigniting an ongoing debate surrounding the "pay gap" between the men's and women's soccer players.
Players on the team, fans, feminists, and even elected officials all chimed in on the controversial topic, with all insisting that female soccer players are victims of a sexist wage gap -- citing the fact that female players are paid much less than male players.
But are there any truths to these claims? Are women in soccer a product of a male-dominated society that doesn't value their play on the field? Unfortunately, the facts surrounding the disparity in pay have had little to no light shed on it.
On Tuesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a partnership between Israel and Florida that would serve as a foundation for the new, nonstop seasonal El Al air service between Tel Aviv and Orlando.

DeSantis, an ardent supporter of preserving a healthy relationship between the U.S. and Israel, has been vocal about his stance on making the Sunshine State the most pro-Israel state in the country.
Officials in attendance for today's announcement hope that the flights to Tel Aviv are successful enough to become a constant in the state.

#ImpeachTrumpNow is Trending on Twitter, Despite Zero Evidence
Tell us if you've heard this one before...
Despite an extensive, lengthy and expensive investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, people are still calling for Congress to impeach President Donald Trump.
Not liking Trump in today's political climate is nothing new, but the need to saturate the daily news cycle with anti-Trump rhetoric is beginning to get old.
That's not to say that you can't hate Trump -- you're absolutely can. But to call for him to be impeached without any conclusive evidence is completely asinine. Still, people without any good reason, or knowledge with how impeachment works, continue to call for Trump to be removed from office.
