Congress should protect evidence gathered by Mueller in Russia probe, experts warn

Bob Graham, D-FlWith the continuing possibility that President Trump could fire special counsel Robert Mueller to thwart the Russia investigation, there is danger once again that key documents could be destroyed, veterans of special investigations warn. They are urging Congress to act quickly to help save crucial evidence before Mueller's team of prosecutors finds itself in the same predicament Akerman faced in 1973.

"Before that worst-case scenario occurs, this is the best time for the congressional committees to make sure that all of Mueller's documents, transcripts and other material goes to them if he is fired," said former senator Bob Graham, D-Fla., past chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee and co-chairman of a joint Senate-House investigation into intelligence community activities before and after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Senators Try To Rein In Saudi Arabia’s Brutal U.S.-Backed Campaign In Yemen

Senate wants to rein in Saudi war in Yemen

An influential bipartisan duo of lawmakers is using this week’s consideration of a must-pass defense spending bill to try to help millions of people in Yemen, where a Saudi-led, U.S.-backed coalition has killed thousands of civilians in a conflict that has created desperate new health and starvation crises.

Sens. Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) are rallying support for an amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act that would condition U.S. military support for Saudi Arabia on American officials guaranteeing that Riyadh is following international humanitarian law, particularly on permitting the delivery of American-bought cranes to unload ships filled with food at a major Yemeni port.

WH: Trump 'looks forward' to signing resolution condemning white supremacists

White supremacists denounced in Congressional billThe White House announced Wednesday that President Donald Trump will "absolutely" sign a resolution condemning the Charlottesville violence and white supremacy.

Congress passed the bipartisan joint resolution condemning the Charlottesville violence -- as well as "white nationalists, white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups"-- earlier this week, pushing Trump to sign the resolution explicitly condemning the racist gathering.
The House passed the joint resolution by unanimous consent Tuesday night, a day after the Senate easily approved it.

Defying Trump, Senate panel approves funding for U.N. climate body

UNFCCC funded by Senate panelThe United States is still a party to the 1992 UNFCCC, which oversees the Paris agreement, although Trump announced in June that he would withdraw the nation from the global climate pact and cease funding the Green Climate Fund, which supports clean energy and climate adaptation projects in vulnerable countries.

The United States has usually contributed to around 20 percent of the UNFCCC budget.

Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon, the amendment’s author, said on Twitter on Thursday: “Despite @RealDonaldTrump’s dangerous #ParisAgreement decision & unwillingness to act, we can & will fight back to combat #climatedisruption.”
