Donald Trump Maintains Losing Streak In Court Over His Travel Ban

Travel ban upheld for third timePresident Donald Trump couldn’t appease the appeals court that first rebuked him over his travel ban, as a panel of judges dealt him yet another legal setback Monday despite administration efforts to help the ban survive judicial scrutiny.

More than three months since the president went back to the drawing board on his original executive order, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has again refused to reinstate the revised version, which would impose a ban on travel from six Muslim-majority countries and a suspension of the refugee resettlement program.

Donald Trump's new FBI director pick has Russian ties of his own

Christopher WrayThe most troubling issue that Wray may face is the fact that his law firm — King & Spalding — represents Rosneft and Gazprom, two of Russia’s largest state-controlled oil companies.

Rosneft was prominently mentioned in the now infamous 35-page dossier prepared by former British MI6 agent Christopher Steele. The dossier claims that the CEO of Rosneft, Igor Sechin, offered candidate Donald Trump, through Trump’s campaign advisor Carter Page, a 19% stake in the company in exchange for lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia. The dossier claims that the offer was made in July while Page was in Moscow.
