Amal Clooney, wife of actor George Clooney, was among the experts who advised the International Criminal Court (ICC) in seeking arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar over alleged war crimes.

The ICC's chief prosecutor, Karim Khan, asked Clooney, 46, to assist him with evaluating evidence of suspected war crimes and crimes against humanity in Israel and the Gaza Strip, where Israeli military forces have been operating since the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas.

In a letter to senators dated Sunday evening, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., revealed his plan to bring an immigration bill to the floor once again after it was rejected primarily by Senate Republicans in February.

"We are hopeful this bipartisan proposal will bring serious-minded Republicans back to the table to advance this bipartisan solution for our border," he wrote.

Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen's admission in court Monday that he stole from the Trump Organization further damaged the disbarred attorney's credibility, and could lead at the very least to a deadlocked jury that cannot reach a verdict, a legal expert told Fox News Digital.

"I think after last week's cross-examination, Michael Cohen's credibility as a witness had already pretty much been eviscerated," Heritage Foundation senior legal fellow Zack Smith told Fox News Digital in a phone interview. "If there were any lingering doubts in the minds...

Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom of California took a moment in his keynote speech at the Vatican's Climate Summit last week to jab Donald Trump, accusing the former president of cozying up with big oil companies in what he called "open corruption."

"And with respect and, forgive me, if this comes off a little too harsh. It’s been said and I’ll repeat it: the polluted heart of the climate crisis are these fossil fuel companies that have been lying to us," Newsom said in his 10-minute speech Thursday. "They’ve been deceiving us. They’ve known the...

Washington — Two Senate Republicans on Monday introduced legislation to protect access to in vitro fertilization, known as IVF, after a Democratic-led effort to do so failed earlier this year in the upper chamber.

It seeks to safeguard IVF nationwide by banning states from receiving Medicaid funding if they enact an outright ban on the fertility procedure. The bill defines IVF as "eggs are collected from ovaries and manually...
