    While in Moscow this week, Sen. Rand Paul delivered a letter from President Donald Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Paul said Wednesday.

    NBC News reported that Paul was "honored" to deliver the note, which the White House described as a "letter of introduction" that "mentioned topics of interest that Senator Paul wanted to discuss with President Putin."

    Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, said "the letter emphasized the importance of further engagement in various areas including countering terrorism, enhancing legislative dialogue and resuming cultural exchanges."

    Paul also said he secured the first visit to Washington from members of the Russian Federation in nearly three years.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
