Schumer theatens shut down over wall costSenate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer warned Republicans Tuesday that they'd risk a government shutdown if they try to attach money for President Donald Trump's U.S.-Mexico border wall to a must-pass bill to keep the government.

CREW accuses Trump White House aide of violating conflict of interest laws

CREW accuses Wh aide of conflict of interest violationsThe watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington is accusing a top White House official of potentially violating criminal conflict of interest laws by playing a role in meetings with major companies in which he also appeared to have held millions of dollars in stock.

The group filed its complaint Tuesday against Christopher Liddell, a former executive with Microsoft and General Motors who was appointed by President Donald Trump to be an assistant to the president and director of strategic initiatives. It said Liddell might have broken the law over three days in January and early February by participating in policy meetings between Trump and leaders from as many as 18 companies that he also had a financial interest in, including Ford Motor Co., Johnson & Johnson and GM.

Petraeus and other ex-generals oppose bill to let mentally ill vets get guns

PetraeusA coalition of retired admirals and generals, including former CIA director and retired Army Gen. David Petraeus, are protesting “irresponsible and dangerous” legislation they say would put mentally ill veterans in harm’s way by giving them easy access to firearms.

The Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act would prevent the Department of Veterans Affairs from reporting veterans' records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System after they’ve been deemed incapable of managing their financial affairs because of a disabling mental disorder. The bill would prohibit the VA from considering such veterans “mentally defective” without a magistrate or judicial authority ruling that the beneficiary is a danger to himself or herself or others.

Suspected pirates hijack oil tanker near Somalia

Somalia tanker hijackedSuspected pirates hijacked an oil tanker in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Somalia on Tuesday, Somali officials said.

It was the first such hijacking in five years. European naval forces have reduced piracy in the region, in which faster-moving boats chase down large merchant ships and commandeer them for ransom.

The ship hijacked Monday is believed to be a merchant oil tanker sailing under the United Arab Emirates flag, traveling from Djibouti to the Somali capital of Mogadishu. At least eight suspected attackers diverted the vessel toward the semiautonomous Somali territory of Puntland, sources told the Voice of America. Other reports said the vessel was registered in Sri Lanka.
