Two people have been killed and at least 20 injured, after a van crashed into a group of people outside a popular bar in Muenster, Germany, on Saturday, the AP reports. Police had earlier stated that three bystanders had died in the incident.

The details: The driver of the vehicle, a German citizen, shot and killed himself after the crash. Police said that they are "investigating in all directions," but said that "nothing speaks for there being any Islamist background."

President Trump's former national security adviser John Bolton alleges in his forthcoming book that the president explicitly told him "he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens," the New York Times first reported.

Why this matters: The revelations present a dramatic 11th hour turn in Trump's Senate impeachment trial. They directly contradict Trump's claim that he never tied the hold-up of Ukrainian aid to his demands for investigations into his political opponent Joe Biden.
