Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is negotiating with investigators in the Russia probe for a possible interview with President Trump. The "Washington Post" reports that Giuliani, who recently joined Trump's legal team, met with Special Counsel Robert Mueller [[ MULL-er ]] Tuesday. Mueller reportedly stressed the importance of sitting down with Trump as they look to wrap up their investigation. Giuliani didn't rule out an interview, but explained how the President and his advisers are opposed to the idea.        A former policeman is accused of being the notorious Golden State Killer. The Golden State Killer is suspected of 12 murders, 45 rapes and more than a hundred burglaries across California in the 1970s and 80s. DNA evidence led to Tuesday's arrest of 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo.        Teachers in Arizona plan to walk out of the classroom Thursday in hopes of getting better pay. Teachers are striking to demand a 20-percent raise, raises for support staff and more school funding. The walkout is forcing most schools to close for at least the rest of the week.        A Texas killer is the ninth person to be executed in U.S. this year. Prison officials say 31-year-old Erick Davila died by lethal injection Wednesday at the execution chamber in Huntsville. Davila opened fire at a children's birthday party in 2008, trying to kill a rival gang member. The gang member survived, but a 48-year-old woman and her five-year-old granddaughter were killed.        Rapper Kanye West is polarizing the Internet with his tweets in support of President Trump. Kanye tweeted Wednesday that Trump is his brother and he loves him because they are both "dragon energies." He also tweeted a photo of him sporting a Make America Great Again hat. President Trump in turn tweeted his appreciation for West's post.
