Trump officials take bold steps on Medicaid

Medicaid work requirements pushed by TrumpThe Trump administration is pulling out all the stops to encourage red states to make conservative changes to Medicaid without congressional input.

Administration officials are pushing ahead and granting approvals to states seeking to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients, even in the face of legal challenges and large-scale losses in the number of people covered.

Last week, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) granted Ohio’s request for work requirements, the ninth such approval since President Trump took office.


Fourth migrant dies in Border Patrol custody since December

Fourth migrant dies in Border custody A 40-year-old Mexican migrant has died in U.S Customs and Border Protection custody, the fourth such death since December.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said that the man died Monday at the Las Palmas Medical Center in El Paso, Texas.

U.S Border agents apprehend the man before dawn near the Bridge of Americas and was taken to the Border Patrol's processing facility near the Pase Del Norte Port of Entry where he was evaluated by medical personnel and diagnosed with flu-like symptoms, liver failure and renal failure, the department said in a media release published Tuesday.

He was transported to the medical center where he died later that day.


Deer Park plant fire may have been sparked by overheated storage tank, worker says

Deer Park fire continues

A worker who said he was at the International Terminals Co. when the fire first broke out Sunday said he first noticed smoke rising up from one of the chemical storage tanks.

He left the terminal within a half-hour and by then, "It was roaring up."

The man, who asked not to be identified for fear of repercussions, said speculation among the workers is that the tank may have overheated. Tanks overheat from time to time, he said, but normally have a safety mechanism that can shut them off.

For whatever reason, that safety mechanism may not have been enough to prevent the fire, he said.

"Everyone thinks a tank overheated," he said.


Chao asks inspector general to review FAA’s approval of 737 MAX

Chao aks for reviewe of FAA passing Booeing 737 Max 8

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao has asked the DOT's inspector general to examine the process the FAA used to certify the Boeing 737 MAX as safe to fly before two of the planes went down in fatal crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia, the department said Tuesday.

Chao’s request, in a memo to the inspector general dated Tuesday, asks the inspector’s office to include the certification process in any audit it conducts into the 737 MAX.

Chao's referral memo said the audit will help to “compile an objective and detailed factual history of the activities that resulted in the certification of the Boeing 737-MAX 8 aircraft.“ It notes that Boeing requested an amended type certification for this aircraft in January 2012, which FAA issued in March 2017.


Deutsche Bank and Trump: $2 Billion in Loans and a Wary Board

Trump borrowed $2B from Deutche Bank after multiple defaults

For nearly two decades, Donald J. Trump relied on Deutsche Bank to lend to him when other banks wouldn’t. Deutsche Bank, eager to expand in the United States, made a decision to repeatedly take a risk on him.

Much has been written about their relationship, which is now under investigation on Capitol Hill and by the New York attorney general. Here are some of the new revelations from The New York Times’s investigation into Mr. Trump’s ties to Deutsche Bank.

From the outset, Deutsche Bank executives recognized that Mr. Trump was a risky client — that’s why most other banks considered him off-limits. But the bank soon got an up-close view of its client’s problems.



Cyclone Idai Leaves Vast Destruction in Mozambique and Other Countries in Southern Africa

Cyclone Idai leaves vast devastationA deadly cyclone that struck Mozambique and other countries in southern Africa has nearly obliterated the worst-affected areas, flooding vast stretches of land, destroying roads and dams, and cutting off victims from help.

The cyclone, called Idai, has affected more than 1.5 million people, with a death toll now in the dozens but feared to be far higher.

The storm destroyed “90 percent” of Beira, a city of about a half-million people that is Mozambique’s fourth largest and faces the Indian Ocean, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said on Monday.


West Virginia AG alleges Catholic bishop knowingly hired pedophiles

W. Virginia AG sues Catholic DioceseWest Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey Wednesday sued the Catholic diocese of Wheeling-Charleston and its former bishop, Michael Bransfield, charging that they “knowingly employed pedophiles and failed to conduct adequate background checks” for people working in Catholic schools and camps, a Morrisey press release says.

The lawsuit, the latest dramatic civil action against the American church in the past year, alleges violations of the state’s consumer protection laws. It accuses the diocese of advertising safe environments for children while at the same time, the complaint says, choosing “to cover up and conceal arguably criminal behavior of child sexual abuse.”


Mueller Went After Cohen Soon After He Took Over Russia Probe

Michael Cohen probe starter earlier than raid

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office obtained search warrants to read Michael Cohen’s emails almost a year before the former fixer for President Trump was raided by the FBI, according to court documents unsealed Tuesday.

Beginning in July 2017, FBI agents working for Mueller sought and obtained three warrants to search Cohen’s communications. The request came two months and a day to Mueller’s appointment as leader of the Trump-Russia investigation, following Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey.
