Report: Trump Repeatedly Talks About Ending Mueller Probe

Trump talks repeatedly of ending probePresident Trump has repeatedly ranted about the ongoing Russia investigation and spoken of ending it during his working vacation at his Bedminster retreat, according to Politico.

Melania’s Immigration Attorney Rips Trump For Stoking Fear Of Migrant Families

Michael Wildes

Melania Trump’s immigration attorney spoke up Friday to criticize the president’s “unconscionable” demonizing of “chain migration” to stoke fear of immigrants. Attorney Michael Wildes praised the “beautiful” U.S. program of family reunification that helped family members of both the first lady and Donald Trump settle in America.

The first lady’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, became American citizens Thursday thanks to to the program. Trump’s own grandfather, Friedrich Trump of Germany, and his Scottish-born mother, Mary Anne MacLeod, followed their siblings into this country.

Rep. Chris Collins suspends re-election campaign days after arrest on insider trading charges

Chris Collins

Rep. Chris Collins, the New York Republican congressman who is charged with insider trading, said Saturday he is suspending his re-election bid to keep Democrats from electing a pro-impeachment candidate in the district.

While noting in his statement on Twitter that he is suspending his campaign, he made it clear that he was in effect dropping out of the race in New York's 27th Congressional District.

Under New York law, a candidate's name cannot be replaced on a ballot this close to the election unless he or she dies, moves out of the state or is nominated for another office.

Melania Trump's parents become citizens through 'chain migration'

Viktor and Amalija Knavs

Melania Trump’s parents were sworn in as US citizens on Thursday, completing a legal path to citizenship that their son-in-law has suggested eliminating.

Viktor and Amalija Knavs, both in their 70s, took the citizenship oath at a private ceremony in New York City. The Slovenian immigrants, a former car dealer and textile factory worker, had been living in the US as permanent residents.

The Knavses slipped in and out of a side entrance at a Manhattan federal building flanked by Department of Homeland Security police. Some workers inside didn’t know what was going on. The couple said little, other than Viktor telling a reporter “thank you” when asked how they felt about becoming Americans.

The Knavses’ lawyer said they had “travailed a wonderful journey”.

Trump blasts NFL players for kneeling at preseason games

Trump blasts NFL preseason playersPresident Donald Trump blasted NFL players on Friday morning for protesting during the national anthem at preseason games, accusing them of being "unable to define" what they are protesting and suggesting the athletes should instead "be happy" and "be cool."

"The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the national anthem. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their “outrage” at something that most of them are unable to define. They make a fortune doing what they love," Trump said in a tweet.

Trump's tweets came after some football players kneeled or showed other signs of protest during the national anthem at several preseason NFL games Thursday night.

DeVos rolls back rules aimed at low-performing for-profit and career colleges

Devos rolls back rules aimed at for profit career colleges

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos moved Thursday to eliminate Obama-era regulations that were meant to cut off federal funding to low-performing programs at for-profit schools and other career colleges.

The Education Department unveiled a proposal to rescind the "gainful employment" regulation, which was a centerpiece of the Obama administration's crackdown on for-profit education companies.

The goal of the rule, which took effect in 2015, was to make sure that students who graduate from for-profit schools or other career-oriented programs make enough money to repay their student loans. But the schools, and congressional Republicans, have long criticized the regulation as unfair and overly burdensome.

There's a Tiny Strange Galaxy Orbiting The Milky Way And No One Knows How It Got There

Milky WayA galaxy in nearby space called Segue 1 is quite the oddity. It's very small, and very faint, it hangs out very close to the Milky Way, and no one knows quite where it came from.

But now astronomers have accurately measured its movement for the first time, which has finally offered some clues.

So what, exactly, is Segue 1? Well, in the last decade or so, our telescope technology had grown powerful enough to spot a small new class of galaxy. They are very compact, occupying the space somewhere between a globular cluster and a dwarf galaxy.

Nunes on Russia investigation: 'We have to keep the majority'

Devon Nunes says his job is to protect Trump

Republicans' bulwark around President Donald Trump could be imperiled this fall if Democrats are able to seize control of the House of Representatives in the midterms, Rep. Devin Nunes appeared to warn in a secretly recorded audio tape.

"It's like your classic catch-22 situation. ... This puts us in such a tough spot. If Sessions won’t unrecuse and Mueller won’t clear the president, we’re the only ones, which is really the danger,” Nunes (R-Calif.) said, according to the tape. “I mean, we have to keep all these seats. We have to keep the majority. If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away."

TVNL Comment: Is it the job of every elected Republican to protect the president from Robert Mueller, even if that president has committed a crime?  That's the message Devon Nune delivered to a group of donors.  Very scary.

Judge orders plane carrying deported mother and child turned around, blocks more removals

Judge orders plane turned around with deported mother and child In a federal courtroom in Washington on Thursday, a judge heard about something the Trump administration had just done that clearly angered him. The government, he learned, had deported an immigrant mother and daughter who are plaintiffs in the lawsuit the judge was hearing over asylum restrictions.

So the judge did something highly unusual: He demanded the administration turn around the plane carrying the plaintiffs to Central America and bring them back to the United States. And he ordered the government to stop removing plaintiffs in the case from the country who are seeking protection from gang and domestic violence.
