The NAACP is staging a sit-in protest at the office of U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions
in Mobile, Alabama to speak out against his nomination by President-elect Donald Trump for attorney general.

Several leaders of the civil rights organization have thus far participated in
the protest, which kicked off Tuesday morning, including NAACP
Cornell William Brooks, and Alabama state NAACP President Benard
Simelton. Brooks posted a tweet Tuesday morning declaring that he
will continue to occupy the office until the protest results in either Sessions’
withdrawal or their arrest: 

U.S. intelligence officials have concluded that hackers working for Russia
hacked into the Democratic National Committee\\\'s computer network, as well
as the private email of John Podesta, a top adviser to Democratic presidential
nominee Hillary Clinton

Most Americans believe the Russian hacking affected the election.

investments in cancer research and battling drug abuse.

Obama signed the bill at a ceremony on the White House campus flanked by Vice
President Joe Biden and key lawmakers.The 21st Century Cures Act invests $1.8 billion for a cancer research \\\"moonshot\\\" that
is strongly supported by Biden. The vice president\\\'s son Beau died of brain cancer in 2015.

The bill also authorizes giving states $1 billion over two years to prevent and
treat the abuse of opioids and other addictive drugs like heroin.
