House Adds Lawsuit to Challenges Against Trump’s Emergency Declaration

Nanct PelosiThe House will file a lawsuit challenging President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the southwestern border, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday, the latest in a series of efforts to stop Mr. Trump from securing money that Congress refused to give him for his promised wall.

“The president’s action clearly violates the Appropriations Clause by stealing from appropriated funds, an action that was not authorized by constitutional or statutory authority,” Ms. Pelosi said in a statement.

“The House will once again defend our democracy and our Constitution, this time in the courts,” she added. “No one is above the law or the Constitution, not even the president.”


Nadler: Barr is 'biased' and Mueller's Trump-Russia report must be released

Nadler: Barr BiasedSenior Democrats are keeping up pressure on attorney general William Barr to release the full Mueller report, claiming collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia happened “in plain sight”.

More than two weeks after Robert Mueller, the special counsel conducting the Russia inquiry, handed his final report to Barr, there is no sign of any let-up in Democratic demands. On the Sunday talk shows the charge was led by Jerry Nadler, chair of the House judiciary committee, who said trust should not be placed in Barr’s four-page summary of the report because the attorney general was “biased”.

“Remember [Barr] is a biased person. He is someone who is an agent of the administration, is an appointee, a political appointee of the president whose interests he may very well be protecting here,” Nadler told CBS’s Face the Nation.



Secrecy behind Saudi nuclear talks infuriates Congress

Bob MenendezCongressional anger is growing over President Trump’s efforts to secure a nuclear energy deal with Saudi Arabia.

Lawmakers first became wary of the plans when the Saudis refused to accept limits preventing them from developing a nuclear weapon.

But that skepticism quickly turned to fury when it was revealed that the Trump administration gave approval for companies to share certain nuclear energy technology with the kingdom without a broader nuclear deal in place.

Lawmakers are now demanding answers. They particularly want to know whether any of the approvals came after the October murder of U.S.-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

American trourist and guide found alive in Uganda

Kimberly Sue Endicott, the American tourist from Costa Mesa, California, who was kidnapped along with her tour guide on a safari in Uganda has been found alive, according to local authorities.

“She has been located and rescued unharmed,” Uganda military spokesman Brigadier Richard Karemire told Reuters.

Citing a spokesperson for Wild Frontiers Uganda and authorities, ABC News reported that Endicott and her Congolese tour guide were returned to a lodge at Queen Elizabeth National Park as part of a negotiated handover in which a ransom was paid. The kidnappers have reportedly escaped.

The 36-year Endicott has been missing since Tuesday when four kidnappers stopped the safari group at gunpoint in Queen Elizabeth National Park.



White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney On Fox: Democrats Will ‘Never’ See Trump Tax Returns

Mulvaney: No tax returns, ever

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told Fox News on Sunday morning that the House Democrats will “never” see President Trump’s tax returns, setting the White House stance on an issue that has roiled Washington over the past week.

Pushing back in what could be a losing battle, Mulvaney added, “Nor should they. That’s an issue that was already litigated during the election. Voters knew the president could have given his tax returns. They knew that he didn’t and they elected him anyway.”


Report Finds More Than 47,000 'Structurally Deficient' Bridges In The U.S.

47,000+ bridges structurally deficient in US

The collapse of a bridge earlier this week in Tennessee is raising new alarms about the delicate state of infrastructure across the U.S.

Tennessee Department of Transportation engineers say that a concrete overpass spanning an interstate highway in Chattanooga fell when a truck carrying an oversize load hit the bottom of the bridge and sliced through steel beams underneath. One person driving underneath the bridge was injured, police say.

Dozens of whistleblowers who currently or previously worked in the Trump administration are reportedly cooperating in secret with House Democrats investigating the president.

The number of whistleblowers who have come forward to Congress has grown to the “dozens,” a senior House Oversight Committee aide told The Atlantic. That committee is now chaired by Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., who became at least a momentary TV celebrity for his calm, measured manner during Michael Cohen's Capitol Hill testimony.

Longtime committee aides told the Atlantic that the number of whistleblowers who have come forward to the panel have increased dramatically since Trump took office compared to previous administrations.


U.S. government says it could take two years to identify families separated at border

It may take two years to reunite families separated at borderIt could take the U.S. government up to two years to identify potentially thousands of additional children separated from their parents by the authorities at the southern border, the government said in a court filing.

The filing late on Friday outlined for the first time the Trump administration’s plan for identifying which family members might have been separated by assessing thousands of records using a combination of data analysis, statistical science, and manual review.

Last month, a federal judge in San Diego expanded the number of migrant families that the government may be required to reunite as part of a class-action lawsuit brought last year by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
