'Criminal Minds’ Hints That Rossi's Wedding Will Have an 'Emotional' Cliffhanger – Country Living

Criminal Minds is moving one step closer to its final episode forever (which I’m still very much in denial about, by the way). The season 14 finale is tonight, and the series that’s normally about ghastly crimes might actually showcase a happy—and highly anticipated—event for a change.

Love is in the air, as we’ll finally see David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) say “I do.” But before he walks down the aisle, he’ll need to help save his team from some life-threatening trouble, because of course it can’t just be your average wedding.

Tonight’s episode, titled “Truth or Dare,” will follow the BAU members to Los Angeles, where they are looking into a string of gruesome murders involving car accidents and fatal shootings. “First he scares them, then he punishes them,” Rossi grimly notes in a video sneak peak.

Everyone then travels to the Golden State to investigate, and a precarious situation turns much worse when Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) and J.J. Jareau (A.J. Cook) are taken hostage by the armed suspect, according to Entertainment Tonight.

The publication reports the rest of the crew—Rossi, Tara Lewis (Aisha Tyler), and Matthew Simmons (Daniel Henney)—go into full damage control to get their co-workers and friends out and alive. Although the situation is dire, Rossi appears to have faith in his colleagues. “We’ve got two of our best agents in there,” he assures his squad. “We need to trust that they’ll keep things under control until we can find a way in.”

Rossi seems confident that he can rescue his comrades, and we hope he follows through—we all have a wedding to attend! And it sounds like the ceremony will be a memorable one. Showrunner Erica Messer told TV Guide that the series aimed for an “emotional end to the episode” as opposed to a shocking one. But he promises, “Still, it’s a cliffhanger moment.”

To see if he makes it back to his bride in time, tune into “Truth or Dare,” tonight at 10 p.m. EST on CBS.

Michael Cohen's attorney reportedly approached Trump's lawyers about a pardon after April 2018 FBI raids – CNBC

An attorney for Michael Cohen raised the idea of a pardon with President Donald Trump’s lawyers after federal authorities raided Cohen’s residence and office in April, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the talks.

Congress is now investigating those conversations, documents requested by the House Judiciary Committee revealed on Monday, the Journal said.

The pardon discussions happened as Cohen’s attorney at that time, Stephen Ryan, was working with Trump’s lawyers to determine whether documents seized by the FBI during the April raid were protected by attorney-client privilege, sources told the Journal.

The report comes days after Cohen told lawmakers on Capitol Hill last week that he never asked for a pardon from Trump, and that he would not accept one. The WSJ article noted there was no evidence that Cohen himself asked for a pardon or was aware of the alleged pardon discussions.

Trump’s lawyers – including Jay Sekulow, Rudy Giuliani and Joanna Hendon – dismissed the idea of a pardon at the time, the sources said, according to the Journal. But the paper also reported that Giuliani left open the possibility of an eventual presidential pardon.

Ryan also approached attorneys for the Trump Organization, the president’s company, about a pardon, the Journal reported. Ryan no longer represents Cohen in the criminal case.

If a pardon was not an option, Ryan left the impression that his client Cohen might flip and cooperate with investigators from the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office, the paper added.

Ryan, a spokesperson for Giuliani, and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not immediately return CNBC’s requests for comment.

A spokeswoman for Cohen told CNBC in an email, “Mr. Cohen stands by his testimony before the House Oversight Committee.”

In August, Cohen pleaded guilty to eight charges, including two campaign-finance violations for arranging hush-money payments during the 2016 campaign to two women – porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal – who alleged they had sexual trysts with Trump a decade earlier. Trump has denied the affairs.

Cohen also pleaded guilty to lying to Congress. He will report to prison May 6, when he is slated to begin a three-year sentence.

Disgraced former Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn reportedly approved for $9 million bail

Carlos Ghosn

  • Disgraced former Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn was reportedly approved for bail by a Tokyo court on Tuesday. 
  • Bail has reportedly been set at $9 million (1 billion yen), according to Kyodo News.
  • Ghosn was arrested on November 19 and is facing multiple allegations of financial misconduct including underreporting his income and transferring more than $16 million in personal investment losses to Nissan. 

Disgraced former Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn was reportedly approved for bail by a Tokyo court on Tuesday, following his arrest last year over allegations of financial misconduct. 

Bail has been set at $9 million (1 billion yen), according to Kyodo News. Two other requests submitted by his legal team were previously denied. His release could come as soon as today, according to Associated Press.

Ghosn was arrested on November 19 and is facing multiple allegations of financial misconduct including underreporting his income and transferring more than $16 million in personal investment losses to Nissan. 

The former chairman has said that he acted “honorably and legally,” and he has maintained that he was “wrongly accused and unfairly detained.”

Ghosn was once a prolific figure in the automotive industry, and is admired for helping save Nissan from the brink of bankruptcy in the late 1990s, which included a strategic partnership with the French automaker Renault in 1999. Mitsubishi joined the group in 2016, and two years later, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance under Ghosn’s leadership became the world’s largest automaker by sales.

Both Nissan and Mitsubishi booted Ghosn after the financial misconduct allegations came down. Nissan CEO and president Hiroto Saikawa publicly rebuked Ghosn.

Fellow Nissan executive and close aide Greg Kelly was arrested alongside Ghosn and was granted bail in December. Kelly has also denied the allegations, but is reportedly cooperating with Japanese authorities.
