A former police officer is under arrest on accusations he's the notorious Golden State Killer. Investigators credit DNA evidence for leading them to 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo of Sacramento. Police have linked the Golden State Killer to a dozen murders and nearly 50 rapes across California in the 1970s and 80s. DeAngelo is being help on suspicion of at least four killings.        Rudy Giuliani is getting to work as a new member of President Trump's legal team. The "Washington Post" reports that he met with Special Counsel Robert Mueller [[ MULL-er ]] yesterday to talk about a possible interview with the President. Mueller reportedly expressed the importance of interviewing Trump. Giuliani also asked Mueller to clarify when he'd finish his probe of Russian meddling in the U.S. election.       The French president believes President Trump will scrap the Iran nuclear deal. Speaking to reporters in Washington, DC, Emmanuel Macron admitted that he didn't have any inside information about Trump's decision despite spending the day with him yesterday. Trump must decide whether to stay in the deal by next month.        White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney is catching heat for a remark he made to a group of bankers. Speaking about his days as a congressman, he said -- "We had a hierarchy in my office: if you were a lobbyist who never gave us money, I didn't talk to you. If you were a lobbyist who gave us money, I might talk to you." Pennsylvania Democratic Senator Bob Casey called the comments disgraceful.        Kanye West is setting the internet on fire for tweeting in support of President Trump. Today, he called Trump his brother and said he loves him because they're both "dragon energies." President Trump tweeted his appreciation for West's post, which prompted the rapper to post a picture of a phone showing Trump's replay.
