A 62-year-old Long Island woman has been arrested on a misdemeanor animal cruelty charge after 47 cats, a turtle and a parrot were found living in deplorable conditions in her home, authorities say.
Many of the animals living with Marilyn Brischler in Ronkonkoma had health problems, the Suffolk County SPCA says. The house was condemned by the Brookhaven Fire Marshal and the local animal shelter helped remove the pets.
The top tax-writing committee in the House is readying a request for years of President Donald Trump’s personal tax returns that is expected to land at the Internal Revenue Service as early as the next few weeks, NBC News has learned. And Democrats are prepared to take all necessary steps, including litigation, in order to obtain them. Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., has asked the committee’s attorneys to prepare the request, according to two aides involved in the process.<a href="https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/house-democrats-prepare-effort-request-trump-tax-returns-n978246" class="linkout" target="_blank"> Read More</a>
Brischler is due in Central Islip court later this summer. Information on an attorney for her wasn't immediately available.
