Tensions erupted most recently this month when members of the so-called "antifa" movement showed up at a march organized by a right-wing group called Patriot Prayer.

As police tried to keep order, fist fights broke out in a string of downtown parks fringed with aspen trees and dotted with plaques honoring Portland's founders and fallen World War II soldiers.

Justice Department Seized New York Times Reporter’s Phone, Email Records

Sessions violated freedom of the pressOfficials at the Justice Department seized the phone and email records of a journalist at The New York Times earlier this year in what the newspaper reports is the first time the Trump administration has gone after a journalist’s personal data.

The Department of Justice informed Times reporter Ali Watkins in February that it had secretly obtained years of her communication records up to November 2017, from before her employment with the Times, and said it was part of an investigation into leaks of classified government information. Investigators did not obtain the content of the messages. The Times said it learned of the Justice Department’s seizure on Thursday.

Watkins, a national security reporter who previously worked for HuffPost, Politico and BuzzFeed News, declined to comment and referred questions to a Times spokeswoman.

Cozy land deals meant big money for Trump family and friends

Cozy land deals for TrumpsThe purchase of three properties by President Trump’s son-in-law on the banks of a toxic Brooklyn canal triggered a series of unusual real estate deals and a windfall profit from transactions financed by a bank tied to the Trump family.

The property transactions totaling more than $150 million began in late 2014 and early 2015 and included sales prices well above the assessed value of the parcels, as well as high-risk loans that experts said raise red flags. At the center of each deal is either Jared Kushner or Michael Cohen, whose business dealings have attracted close scrutiny from prosecutors and regulators since Trump’s election.

Donald Trump calls for Russia to be reinstated into G7

Trump calls for Russia to be reinstated at G7

Donald Trump has called for Russia to be readmitted to the G7 club of world leaders, opening up a new rift with Europe at the start of an acrimonious summit in Québec.

The US president argued that Russia’s suspension from the former G8, imposed in 2014 after its annexation of Crimea, should be reversed for pragmatic reasons.

It marks a dramatic break from the position of Washington’s main European allies and parts of Trump’s own administration, who insist Moscow must abide by a peace accord in Ukraine before normal relations are resumed.
