Capitals forward T.J. Oshie will be out "quite some time" after he was pushed into the boards by Carolina Hurricanes forward Warren Foegele in what Washington captain Alex Ovechkin called a "dirty play." Oshie seemed to be favoring his right shoulder as he left the ice during the Capitals' 2-1 loss in Game 4. Coach Todd Reirden said he'll have more specifics on the undisclosed "upper body" injury Friday, April 19. "It was a defenseless player that was quite a distance from the boards," Reirden said. "It's an extremely dangerous play, and [Oshie] will not be with our team for a while.
BERLIN - Like much of the United States, governments abroad watched closely Thursday as Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report was released in a redacted version. U.S. allies and foes may have had very different hopes for that report, which also shed more light on the extent to which Russia was able to disrupt the 2016 U.S.
Canadian professional freeskier Dave Treadway was killed Monday, April 15, when he fell about 100 feet into a crevasse while skiing in the backcountry with a group of people in the mountains just north of Whistler, British Columbia. Treadway, 34, died near Rhododendron Mountain, about 10 miles from where he lived in Pemberton, British Columbia, and 17 miles from Whistler. His death was announced on his website in a statement that called him "an incredible skier and a monumental human."
WASHINGTON - Attorney General William Barr spoke to reporters in advance of the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report, which was submitted last month. A lightly redacted version of the report will be released publicly on Thursday. Here are Barr's remarks as prepared for delivery. Good morning.
WASHINGTON - The long-awaited report from special counsel Robert Mueller details abundant evidence against President Donald Trump - finding 10 episodes of suspicious behavior - but ultimately concluding it was not Mueller's role to determine whether the commander in chief broke the law. "The evidence we obtained about the President's actions and intent presents difficult issues that would need to be resolved if we were making a traditional prosecutorial judgment," Mueller's team stated in the report submitted to Congress on Thursday.
A 37-year-old man from New Jersey was detained after he tried to enter St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York on Wednesday night, April 17, carrying two containers of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, police said.

There were no injuries or damages as a result of the incident, police sources told The Washington Post.
As Swedish prosecutors consider re-opening a probe into rape allegations against Julian Assange, it sets up a test of just how tangled the post-Brexit legal system is about to become. British police arrested Assange, 47, last week, ending his seven-year stay in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. American authorities promptly asked the U.K. to extradite Assange to face charges related to the disclosure of secret government documents.
WASHINGTON - A noticeable shift has taken place on Wall Street and among many economists and business leaders in recent weeks: Fears of an imminent recession have faded and been replaced with cautious optimism, especially about 2020, a trend that bodes well for President Donald Trump as he seeks reelection.
WASHINGTON - Richard Schneider carefully spread the broken pieces of the glass photo negative on the light table at the National Archives and, wearing green rubber gloves, put them together like the parts of a puzzle. A ghostly image emerged that Schneider recognized. "The face, and the mustache, and those eyes," he said. It was Adolf Hitler, sitting stiffly in an upholstered armchair, his German shepherd at his side.
The nation's top prosecutor broadened the Trump administration's authority to detain asylum seekers who cross the border illegally by unilaterally declaring Tuesday, April 16, that they are not entitled to bond hearings. Attorney General William Barr's ruling, in a case initially taken up by his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, reverses a 2005 Board of Immigration Appeals court decision that said asylum seekers should have a right to bond hearings once they set foot on U.S. soil. Barr said the ruling "was wrongly decided."
