Corey Lewandowski accused the panel of “petty and personal politics”

A former Trump campaign manager has lashed out at Democrats during the first congressional hearings to explore possible impeachment of the president.Corey Lewandowski repeatedly refused to answer questions during an ill-tempered House of Representatives session that devolved into shouting matches.One Democratic lawmaker called for Mr Lewandowski to be held in contempt of the proceedings.President Donald Trump praised Mr Lewandowski’s “beautiful” remarks.Mr Lewandowski testified under oath on Tuesday before the House judiciary committee, which had issued him with a legal summons, known as a subpoena, to give evidence.In fractious exchanges with Democrats, he said he could not answer any question about his conversations with Mr Trump.On the eve of the hearing, the White House had instructed Mr Lewandowski not divulge his discussions with the president.White House lawyers sat behind Mr Lewandowski during the session.He was fired by Mr Trump in June 2016 and never worked in the White House, but remains a staunch supporter.The president’s fellow Republicans criticised the Democratic-controlled committee hearing as unfair and unsuccessfully moved to adjourn it. Top Republican Doug Collins tweeted: “In the absence of a proper floor vote to authorise an impeachment inquiry, today’s business represents a regular oversight hearing, masquerading as impeachment to appease a liberal base”.Mr Lewandowski was asked about his testimony last July to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who investigated the president.The Mueller report did not determine that Mr Trump had conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 US election, but it presented evidence that the president attempted to thwart the justice department inquiry.Mr Lewandowski confirmed the report was “accurate” in noting that Mr Trump had once asked him to help encourage the attorney general to limit the Mueller investigation.But he told the committee that he went to the beach with his family and so was unable to do the president’s bidding.Mr Lewandowski also told the panel he did not believe the president had asked him to do anything illegal.When Democrat Hank Johnson suggested Mr Lewandowski had “chickened out”, he replied: “I went on vacation.”Congressman Eric Swalwell repeatedly asked Mr Lewandowski to read aloud his evidence to Mr Mueller, but the witness refused.”Are you ashamed of the words you wrote down?” asked Mr Swalwell, a California Democrat who recently ended his own White House campaign. Mr Lewandowski mockingly called the lawmaker “President Swalwell”, and said he should read the passage himself.Mr Lewandowski – who is considering a run for a US Senate seat in New Hampshire – accused the lawmakers of ranting and not asking proper questions.In his opening statement, he called on Democrats to stop focusing on “petty and personal politics” and “going down rabbit holes”.He also attacked the Mueller inquiry for being “populated by many Trump haters who had their own agenda to try and take down a duly elected President”. Watching from Air Force One, Mr Trump praised his former campaign adviser on Twitter.

Two other former White House aides, Rick Dearborn and Rob Porter, followed White House advice not to show up at Tuesday’s hearing. The judiciary committee has said it hopes to decide whether to recommend impeachment to the full House by the end of the year.However, the president’s foes do not have the political muscle in Congress to remove him from office.

A Black, Muslim plus-size model is breaking barriers in the fashion industry after being chosen by PrettyLittleThing to model its new line of modest clothing.

Billy Marsal, 21, is a London-based influencer who regularly posts photos of herself wearing trendy and modest outfits on Instagram. The online retail giant scouted her on social media shortly after entering the Middle East market.

Marsal’s work with PrettyLittleThing marks the first time the brand has featured a model wearing a hijab or headscarf, the UK-based company confirmed.

“I didn’t realize how big of a deal it was until I started getting replies and messages from people who were so excited about it, then I realized, wow, this is amazing,” Marsal told CNN.

“It’s an insane feeling, Yes, I am Black, I am Muslim, I am plus size, but I never thought it would be me to make people feel like this.”

Marsal is new to the world of professional modeling, but is excited to represent young Muslim women and help them find fashionable clothes that uphold their religious values.

“As girls who wear the hijab, we grew up buying clothes and having to alter things to make them modest so for them now to tell Muslim girls, ‘Guys, we’re catering to you, too’ is a very big deal,” she said.

Marsal announced her work with PrettyLittleThing in a tweet on Monday that has since garnered more than 500,000 likes and 60,000 retweets. “Soooo… that’s me. THE FIRST HIJABI ON PLT!!! Still so wild to me,” she said.

PrettyLittleThing, which has collaborated with celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Hailey Baldwin, sells fashion “inspired from the catwalk and the coolest muses of the moment” at affordable prices.

The retailer aims to “inspire confidence” in customers with a message of equality and body positivity, according to its website.

“Following our successful launch into the Middle East we are delighted to be launching our ‘Modest clothing’ collection on site,” PrettyLittleThing said in a news release. “Our ethos of ‘EveryBODYinPLT is extremely important to us, so it’s been amazing seeing such positive customer feedback and working with models who represent all of our customer base.”

In recent years, models wearing a hijab have been featured in New York Fashion Week and Sports Illustrated magazine. But it’s still not common.

Marsal said she’s happy to see the industry change to include more Muslim women, and looks forward to the day when it’s no longer surprising to see a model wearing a hijab.

“I think what’s going to happen is this will one day be so normal it’s not surprising anymore, because competitors are noticing what brands like PrettyLittleThing are doing and it’s going to become the norm,” she said.

Nebraska man hits jackpot twice in one year

Michael Christiansen of Norfolk, Nebraska, hit the jackpot for a second time this year.

Earlier this month, Christiansen won $100,000 after purchasing a 20X The Money Scratch ticket. He collected his winnings on October 15 at the Nebraska Lottery’s office in Lincoln. It was his second trip to the office this year because he won $50,000 from a Money Clip Scratch ticket in March.

“I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “What are the odds? I didn’t think it was real,” Christiansen said in a press release.

He purchased both winning tickets from Louie’s Liquor in Norfolk.

When asked what he plans to do with the money, Christiansen gave a few ideas. He said he wants to build a new garage and put some of the money away for his retirement.

Christiansen said his daughter recently passed away, and he’s going to try purchase the house she lived in.

The 20X The Money game offers players a chance to win prizes from a free $10 ticket to $100,000. The chances of winning $100,000 are 1 in 80,000, according to the Nebraska Lottery.

In the Money Clip game, the odds of winning the top prize of $50,000 are also 1 in 80,000, according to the lottery.
