Former 'Bachelor' star sentenced, Don McGahn summoned before Congress: 5 things to know Tuesday  3 Weeks ago

Source:   USA Today  

Chris Soules, who gained fame when he starred in the 2015 season of ABC's "The Bachelor," is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday on a charge stemming from a deadly Iowa car crash. Soules, 36, was originally charged with a felony for leaving the scene of a deadly accident following an April 2017 nighttime collision that killed Kenny Mosher, 66, of Aurora, who was driving a farm tractor. He later avoided a trial by pleading guilty last year to the reduced charge of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, an aggravated misdemeanor.

Aviation workers in Italy will stage a 24-hour strike on Tuesday, a move that has caused more than 300 upcoming flights to be canceled. Milan and Rome airports are expected to have the most flight cancellations, reports the Independent and The Sun. Alitalia, Italy's national airline, said in a news release that it will operate as scheduled during peak times between 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Italian time. The UK’s largest budget airline, easyJet, has also canceled 30 flights Tuesday due to the strike.

The House Judiciary Committee had summoned Don McGahn, the White House’s former top lawyer, to testify before Congress on Tuesday about President Donald Trump's efforts to thwart the special counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. But the White House instructed McGahn not to testify and a lawyer for McGahn said he would follow the president’s directive and skip the hearing. It leaves the Democrats without a witness – and a growing debate within the party about how to respond. The White House's instruction came after the Justice Department told White House lawyers that McGahn could not be forced to testify even after lawmakers issued a subpoena. It is the latest in a series of clashes between Trump and lawmakers seeking to investigate him. 

Alice Marie Johnson, an inmate whose life sentence was commuted thanks in part to the efforts of Kim Kardashian West, is set to release her book “After Life: My Journey From Incarceration to Freedom” on Tuesday. Kardashian West contributed a foreword to what Harper is calling an "honest, faith-driven memoir" and a "deep look into the systemic issue of mass incarceration." Johnson, a 63-year-old great-grandmother, served more than two decades of a life sentence without parole for non-violent offenses before President Donald Trump commuted her sentence last year. Kardashian West personally lobbied him in the Oval Office.

Oculus Quest, a Facebook-owned virtual reality headset, has more than a puncher’s chance to help the consumer VR market get up off the canvas. The $399 self-contained VR headset is available starting Tuesday.  Stephanie Llamas, head of VR/AR for Nielsen’s SuperData market research firm projects Quest, will be the best-selling VR headset this year, with still relatively-modest shipments of more than 1 million units worldwide. Despite mind-blowing technology, widespread consumer acceptance has proved to be anything but a reality for VR in the home. Some people have never warmed up to the idea of wearing headsets, which may make them feel uncomfortable, claustrophobic, even sick.
