Dems investigating Trump have a new tactic to break his blockade

Dems use new tactics to break trump blockade

Democrats investigating Donald Trump for obstruction of justice are eyeing a new strategy to break the president’s all-out oversight blockade: calling witnesses who never worked in the White House.

Key lawmakers tell POLITICO they hope to make an end run around Trump’s executive privilege assertions by expanding their circle of testimony targets to people outside government who nonetheless had starring roles in Robert Mueller’s final report. That includes presidential confidants like former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Iran Threatens to Violate Nuclear Deal’s Limits on Uranium Enrichment

iran threatens to violate nuclear enrichment limitsIran announced on Monday that it would soon violate a central element of the landmark 2015 nuclear deal, which the United States withdrew from last year, unless it received assurances that Europe will combat punishing American sanctions.

Iran is on track to exceed the deal’s limits on nuclear fuel within days, the country’s Atomic Energy Organization announced. The agency also left the door open to an “unlimited rise” in Tehran’s stockpile of enriched uranium, potentially triggering another flash point with Washington just days after attacks on oil tankers stoked tensions between the two nations.

The move was the country’s latest signal that it will abandon the pact unless other signatories help Iran circumvent economic sanctions imposed by President Trump. The threat seemed aimed primarily at the European signatories, to persuade them to break with Washington and swiiftly restore some of the economic benefits of the deal to Tehran.

Supreme Court sends gay wedding cake dispute back to state courts

SC sends bakery case back to lower courtsThe U.S. Supreme Court on Monday dealt a partial victory to the owners of an Oregon bakery who were fined for refusing to provide a cake for a lesbian commitment ceremony.

The justices wiped out lower court rulings against the bakers and sent the case back for another round of hearings.

The legal dispute raised the same issues that arose a year ago in the case of a Colorado baker who refused to provide a custom cake to celebrate the wedding of two men. That baker, Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cake, said it would require him to act against his religious views and violate his right of free speech.

Supreme Court hands Virginia Democrats a win in gerrymandering case

Virginia gerrymandering ruling gives Dems a victoryThe Supreme Court has ruled against the Virginia House of Delegates in a racial gerrymandering case that represents a victory for Democrats in the state.

In the 5-4 ruling, the justices found that the House didn't have the standing to appeal a lower court ruling that found that the new district maps must be used ahead of statewide elections later this year. Those new maps are already in use.

Democrats had claimed that previous districts were unlawful because they featured too many black voters, diminishing their power across the state and in other districts.

Supreme Court declines to change double jeopardy rule in a case with Manafort implications

SC declines to change double jeopardy ruleThe Supreme Court declined on Monday to change the longstanding rule that says putting someone on trial more than once for the same crime does not violate the Constitution's protection against double jeopardy — a case that drew attention because of its possible implications for President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

The 7-2 ruling was a defeat for an Alabama man, Terance Gamble, convicted of robbery in 2008 and pulled over seven years later for a traffic violation. When police found a handgun in his car, he was prosecuted under Alabama's law barring felons from possessing firearms. The local U.S. attorney then charged Gamble with violating a similar federal law. Because of the added federal conviction, his prison sentence was extended by nearly three years.

Trump When Asked If POTUS Can Obstruct Justice: POTUS Can ‘Run The Country’

Trump thinks he can do whatever he wants

President Donald Trump dodged a question on whether it was legal for a president to obstruct justice, saying instead that a president “can run the country” in a new portion of his ABC News interview that aired on Sunday.

During a pre-taped one-on-one interview with ABC News reporter George Stephanopoulos, Trump argued that “a lot of great lawyers” agree that Article 2 of the Constitution means that the President can’t obstruct justice.

“So a president can’t obstruct justice?” Stephanopoulos asked.

“A president can run the country,” Trump responded. “And that’s what happened, George. I run the country and I run it well.”
