The New York City attacker is talking to investigators and appears “proud” of the attack with a rental truck that killed eight people and wounded 13 on a bike path in lower Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon, ABC News reports.

Officials say the attacker, Sayfullo Saipov, 29, was shot and wounded by police. There’s no indication that he was previously on the radar of law enforcement.

Witness Eugene Duffy described one victim’s body as “mangled,” saying he was “traumatized” from what he saw.

“Everybody was running,” Duffy told ABC New York station WABC-TV. “Everything was happening so fast.”

The FBI said it had conducted searches throughout the night in the ongoing investigation.

The controversial dossier on Donald Trump isn’t vanishing any time soon.

The latest: Justice Department and FBI officials showed classified documents related to the controversial document behind closed doors Tuesday before the House Intelligence Committee, Fox News reports.

The committee is trying to determine what federal law enforcement has done to flush out the report compiled by the Washington-based boutique investigative firm Fusion GPS headed up by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson.

The documents reviewed Tuesday were presented for inspection pursuant to a subpoena issued by the committee’s chairman, U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif,  Fox reports.

A special counsel investigation that President Trump has dismissed as a “witch hunt” fueled by “fake news” has suddenly become very real.

On Monday, Robert Mueller’s legal team dropped bombshells: Two Trump campaign aides have been charged with federal crimes and another has cooperated and admitted he tried to set up a clandestine meeting between the future president and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

As the legal heat turns up on the Trump administration, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is urging Trump to dump Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Politico reports

Bannon, who now is the executive chairman of the right-wing Breitbart News, advised the president to defund Mueller’s office to avoid officially firing him. 

CNN’s Dana Bash reported Bannon even told Trump he should withhold documents requested by investigators.

“I’m told Bannon pushing trump to be more aggressive against Mueller: urge gop to cut funding, withhold document production and more,” Bash wrote on Twitter.
