Associates of Trump lawyer Giuliani face arraignment 

After helping President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani seek dirt in Ukraine on Joe Biden's son, businessmen Lev Parnas, 46, and Igor Fruman, 53, are set for arraignment on Wednesday in a New York City federal court on campaign finance charges. The arraignment follows delays in posting security for their $1 million bonds, which will allow them to remain free while the court case continues. A criminal indictment unsealed on Oct. 10 alleges that Parnas, a U.S. citizen born in Ukraine, and Fruman, a U.S. citizen born in Belarus,  schemed to funnel hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal banned campaign contributions from foreign donors to U.S. officials, including Trump-supporting candidates and political action committees. The indictment of Parnas and Fruman drew the attention of the House's presidential impeachment inquiries, which issued subpoenas to both men hours after their arrests at Dulles International Airport in Virginia earlier this month.

Chicago teachers strike ongoing, 'meaningful' steps taken toward deal

More than 32,000 Chicago Public Schools teachers and staff are still picketing, kids are still out of class, and negotiators from the unions and the Chicago mayor's office are still at the bargaining table. Chicago Public Schools teachers and staff went on strike last Thursday after their unions failed to settle a deal with City Hall. While the city has offered union members a 16 percent raise over five years, among other new benefits, the unions are still pushing for smaller class sizes, higher pay for the lowest-paid staffers, and more support staff, such as school nurses, librarians and social workers. Officials said negotiations have been productive and they’re getting closer to a deal, but they’re not there yet.
