Shoes continue to drop in the investigation into the Trump campaign's possible connections to Russia. Yesterday, speculation that the FBI was looking into the Trump family was confirmed by reports that Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and senior advisor, is under scrutiny. More details are emerging about the investigation. Enter the Washington Post: Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communicat

DHS Public Database Includes Personal Information of Abuse Victims  

The Trump administration's effort to highlight crimes committed by undocumented immigrants has become a nightmare for immigrant victims of abuse, with the personal information of undocumented victims appearing in a publicly searchable database launched last month by the Department of Homeland Security. Last month, DHS created the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office, aimed at assisting the victims of crimes committed by immigrants. At the same time, it rolled out a databas

More Than One in Three Black Students in the South Attend an Intensely Segregated School  

More than 60 years after Brown v. Board of Education, the progress made toward dismantling segregated schools in the South, once the most integrated region in the country, seems to be steadily falling apart. A report released this week by UCLA's Civil Rights Project and Penn State University's Center for Education and Civil Rights finds that in 2014, more than one in three black students attended a school in the South that was intensely racially segregated, meaning a school where 90 percent

The Mystery Behind the Half-Million Dollars Michael Flynn Received as a Foreign Agent  

It is hard to keep track of all the Michael Flynn scandals. The former national security adviser for President Donald Trump—who lasted only 22 days in the job—is at the center of various investigations. He has drawn scrutiny for his contacts with the Russian government (and for lying about those contacts), for his pocketing of $45,000 from Kremlin-backed RT (and his failure to disclose the payment), for his lobbying for Turkish interests (and his failure to disclose that as well),

Trump's Behavior in Europe Has Made the World Cringe. Here's What's Really on the Line at the G7.  

One year ago Friday, when speaking on a campaign stop in North Dakota, Donald Trump declared he’d “cancel” the Paris climate agreement within 100 days of his presidency, framing it as a "bad deal" that undermines domestic interests. The 100 days have passed, but his unfulfilled pledge hangs over the G7 meeting in Italy. Trump has already appeared to push a NATO leader aside in Brussels and caused a diplomatic scuffle in Italy after accusing Germany of being "very bad" on t

How the Trump White House Has Tried to Interfere With the Russia Investigations  

The pattern is increasingly clear: As investigations into the Trump campaign's ties to and possible collusion with Russia have intensified, so too have efforts by the president and his staff to quash those probes or put pressure on US officials to publicly deny the validity of the swirling allegations. For his part, President Donald Trump has long insisted there is nothing to the investigations: "The entire thing has been a witch hunt," he said during a recent press conference at the White

Alabama's Republican Governor Just Helped Thousands of Felons Get Their Voting Rights Back  

Alabama Gov.

The change is all about finally defining a key legal phrase in the state's constitution: "moral turpitude." Currently, Alabama blocks anyone from voting who has committed a crime that falls into this category. But the phrase "moral turpitude" was not defined when th

If You Have a Preexisting Condition, the GOP Health Care Bill Is Even Worse Than You Thought  

When Republican lawmakers face criticism over their plan to allow states to dismantle protections for people with preexisting conditions, they have a pretty standard response.

The arsenal included tens of thousands of assault rifles, hundreds of armored vehicles, hundreds of mortar rounds, nearly 200 sniper rifles, and other gear.
