JUSTICE SCALIA DEAD AT 79
One of the prominent conservative voices on the United States Supreme Court, Justice Antonin Scalia, was found dead in his Texas home on Saturday morning. Scalia was meant to go on a hunting trip with his friends that morning, but did not get up from bed. When someone was sent to check on him, he was unresponsive. Other Supreme Court Justices, including Chief Justice John G Roberts mourned Scalia, saying that he was “an extraordinary individual and jurist” and would be missed by his colleagues and family. With Scalia dead, the shadow of who will replace him now looms over Washington, potentially setting up a large scale political battle.

Spokesman for the Pennsylvania Police Department David Beohm says that they have not yet identified the exact number of people killed and are still in the process of looking for people.
TRUMP AND BUSH FIGHT YET AGAIN
The Republican Presidential debate in South Carolina on Saturday saw furious clashes between candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. However, a conflict that seems to present itself in every Republican debate manifested yet again: billionaire Donald Trump and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. Trump attacked Bush’s brother, former President George W Bush, for lying about the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Bush struck back at Trump, saying that the Republican frontrunner made comments praising Russian President Vladimir Putin, who, according to Bush, is stirring up conflict in Syria.
FBI SUGGEST CLINTON DROP OUT
Early in her campaign, Hillary Clinton faced the now infamous email scandal, in which she used her private email for official communications as acting Secretary of State, and then subsequently deleted 32,000 emails that she deemed private. Clinton has been under investigation due to her violation of State Department protocol. According to a statement from former chief of Defense Intelligence Agency Lt. Gen Michael Flynn, Clinton should drop out while the FBI conducts an investigation on her emails. He has denounced her continuation of her presidential bid as irresponsible and lacking accountability.
