President Trump is stacking up his legal team ahead of the Senate impeachment trial. Trump has added Kenneth Starr, Alan Dershowitz and Robert Ray to a team that will be headed by White House counsel Pat Cipollone [[ sip-uhl-OWN-ee ]]. Starr led the investigation of former President Bill Clinton, who was impeached by the House and acquitted by the Senate.       The shooting at a Florida naval air station is leading to some changes within the Defense Department. The Pentagon announced new restrictions on international military students, including banning them from possessing a firearm. Last month's deadly shooting in Pensacola was carried out by a Saudi service member.       Delta Air Lines is facing a lawsuit from teachers in Southern California. The litigation has to do with this week's plane fuel dumping over several schools. The FAA investigation is expected to take several weeks.       A Pennsylvania judge is cutting the amount Johnson and Johnson must pay to a man who sued because his son developed breasts. The original judgment against the company was for eight-billion-dollars in punitive damages. The court reduced that to six-point-eight-million-dollars.       The fight to keep a Texas baby on life support is getting an assist from the highest offices in the state. Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a friend-of-the-court brief today. The nine-month-old is hospitalized with multiple issues and doctors say she's suffering and will never be cured.        Happy 98th birthday to Betty White. The "Golden Girl" is getting quite the outpouring of birthday love across social media today. That includes a funny one-minute video from her "Proposal" costars Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock.
