Politics of the United States
US President Donald Trump has pardoned his former campaign manager Paul Manafort, ex-adviser Roger Stone and the father of Mr Trump's son-in-law.
Mr Manafort was convicted in 2018 in an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US election.
Mr Trump had previously commuted the prison sentence of Mr Stone, who was convicted of lying to Congress.
The uprising across the country should have been sparked back in November, at a time when the campaign for this year's US presidential election had indeed begun, the paper said in an exclusive report, citing claims by a law enforcement official who has access to intelligence about the mysterious group.
Donald Trump appears to be doing everything he can to fan the flames of anger with his threats of "shooting" and "vicious dogs." It is basically the same attitude he took to the coronavirus crisis, going as far as saying that having the highest number of infections in the world was a "badge of honor."
