7 things to know now: Baby Hitler 'Hell yeah' from Bush

Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today.

What to know now:

 1. Cosby suit: Yet another woman is claiming Bill Cosby defamed her after she came forward to accuse him of raping her in 1965. Kristina Ruehli filed a federal lawsuit Monday. The suit seeks unspecified damages. Ruehli is the third woman who has filed suit against Cosby after he said they lied when they said he drugged and rapped them.  

2. On strike: Fast-food employees will be striking today, according to the group called “Fight for $15,” in an effort to get people to vote for candidates who will back a bill to set the minimum wage at least $15 an hour. The strikes are set to begin as the fast-food restaurants open then culminate at rallies at local city halls in 270 cities.

3. GOP debate: It’s debate night in Milwaukee and all eyes will be on the Republican candidates for president – unless they are on Fox Business News moderators. The first debate, where candidates who have from 1-3 percent of the vote participate, begins at 7 p.m. (ET). The debate with candidates who are polling at more than 2.5  percent begins at 9 p.m. (ET).

4. Blow to immigration plan: The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2 to 1 Monday that a lawsuit brought by 26 states to block a plan by the Obama administration to stop the deportation of undocumented immigrants was likely to succeed at trial. The ruling upheld a lower court decision that said those states opposing the executive order would likely win in court because the program the administration proposed was unlawful. According to the lower court ruling, the president’s order  didn't comply with the Administrative Procedure Act (APA). The APA determines how federal agencies are allowed to establish regulations.

5. Doping scandal: An anti-doping commission is claiming that Russian athletes are part of a “deeply rooted culture of cheating,” and are suggesting the country be banned from international athletic competition, including the 2016 Olympic Games. The World Anti-Doping Agency report released on Monday also suggested that Russian state security services are part of the state-sponsored drugs culture.  

And another one

When asked if he could travel back in time and kill the baby who would grow up to be Adolf Hitler, Republican candidate for president Jeb Bush was all in. Asked the question while traveling on his campaign bus, Bush answered, “Hell yeah, I would! … You gotta step up, man.” The question was originally asked of readers of the New York Times Magazine. A majority of the readers agreed with Bush – they would have killed baby Hitler had they the opportunity.
