North Korea is at it again. Paul Manafort will soon find out how long he'll spend behind bars. And an Ohio teen's compelling Senate testimony puts a spotlight on the spread of anti-vaccine misinformation on social media.
"The activity they are undertaking now is consistent with preparations for a test, though the imagery thus far does not show a missile being moved to the launch pad," said Victor Cha, former President George W. Bush's top adviser on North Korea and one of the authors of a report on the new commercial imagery.
President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman could face more than a decade in prison when he is sentenced in two separate court hearings this week and next.
It's a sobering turnabout for the longtime Republican political consultant.
Manafort, who turns 70 on April 1, would have been eligible for a lighter sentence if he had adhered to a deal he made with special counsel Robert Mueller after pleading guilty in one of the two cases filed against him.
Instead, the deal is off and he could spend the rest of his life in prison.

“My mother would turn to social media groups and not to factual sources like the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention]. It is with love and respect that I disagree with my mom.”
