US investigators corroborate some aspects of the Russia dossier

Trump dossierFor the first time, US investigators say they have corroborated some of the communications detailed in a 35-page dossier compiled by a former British intelligence agent, multiple current and former US law enforcement and intelligence officials tell CNN.

Trump's travel ban remains on hold, 9th Circuit Court rules

Trump travel ban stays on holdA federal appeals court refused Thursday to reinstate President Donald Trump's ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations.

The panel of three judges from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals declined to block a lower-court ruling that suspended the ban and allowed previously barred travelers to enter the U.S. An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is possible.

In the early rounds of commentary on television and Twitter, several people have mocked the president for staying up late, pondering questions that might appear on an Econ 101 exam.

But this conversation, if it’s true, is concerning for completely different reasons.

TVNL Comment:  Strange question, despite the hour, from this 'fabulous' business success.
