Businessman George Nader, who was a key witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, was sentenced on Friday to 10 years in prison on child sex charges, AP reports.

The big picture: Nader pleaded guilty in January to possessing child pornography and bringing a 14-year-old boy to the U.S. to engage in sexual activity. The Mueller report outlined how Nader acted as a conduit between Trump associates and Russians. He was also indicted last December on campaign finance charges for allegedly using straw donors to conceal contributions to Hillary Clinton.

Florida smashes single-day record for new coronavirus cases

Data: Covid Tracking Project; Chart: Axios Visuals

Florida reported 15,299 confirmed coronavirus cases on Sunday — a new single-day record for any state, according to its health department.

The big picture: The figure shatters both Florida's previous record of 11,458 new cases and the single-state record of 11,694 set by California last week, according to AP. It also surpasses New York's daily peak of 11,571 new cases in April, and comes just a day after Disney World reopened in Orlando.
