Mueller to testify publicly on July 17 following a subpoena

Mueller to testifyRobert Mueller will testify before Congress on July 17 after House Democrats issued a subpoena for his appearance, a move that paves the way for a reluctant special counsel to answer questions publicly for the first time about his 22-month investigation into President Donald Trump.

The House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees announced Tuesday that Mueller had agreed to testify after they issued subpoenas for his testimony, and Mueller would appear in public before the two panels next month.
"Americans have demanded to hear directly from the Special Counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined, uncovered, and determined about Russia's attack on our democracy, the Trump campaign's acceptance and use of that help, and President Trump and his associates' obstruction of the investigation into that attack," House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff said in a joint statement.

Trump's border protection chief to resign

Trump's Border Protection Chief to resign

Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner John Sanders is resigning amid heightened scrutiny over the administration's treatment of migrant children detained in facilities along the southern border.

Sanders’ exit, which he confirmed Tuesday in an email to CBP employees, marks the latest high-profile departure at President Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security. It creates a new leadership vacuum atop the nation’s chief border enforcement agency as it struggles to quell a surge in Central American migrants entering the U.S. through Mexico.


Axios Exclusive: Leaked Trump vetting docs

Massive leak of Trump transition documents

Nearly 100 internal Trump transition vetting documents leaked to "Axios on HBO" identify a host of "red flags" about officials who went on to get some of the most powerful jobs in the U.S. government.

Why it matters: The massive trove, and the story behind it, sheds light on the slap-dash way President Trump filled his cabinet and administration, and foreshadowed future scandals that beset his government.


Flynn's sentencing delayed again so new lawyer can study up

Flynn sentencing delayed again

Michael Flynn’s sentencing has been delayed — again.

The latest postponement is the result of a legal switch Trump's former national security adviser made recently, firing his group of attorneys in favor of Sidney Powell, an outspoken critic of special counsel Robert Mueller.

At a hearing Monday, Powell said she needs at least another 90 days to get up to speed on the case before Flynn receives his punishment for pleading guilty to lying to the FBI about his communications with a top Russian official.

“There are more moving pieces in this representation than there are in the movement of an old-fashioned Swiss watch,” Powell told the court.



George Conway Warns ‘Hypocritical’ GOP To Take Rape Accusation Against Trump Seriously

George Conway warns hypocriticalAttorney George Conway lashed Republicans in a scathing op-ed published Saturday, warning them to hold Donald Trump to the same standards they applied to Bill Clinton and take a new rape accusation against the president seriously.

Conway, husband of White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, pointed to Republican furor after retired Arkansas nursing home operator Juanita Broaddrick accused Clinton of rape, which he denied. Trump, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by 23 women, seated Broaddrick in a front row during one of his 2016 campaign debates with Hillary Clinton.


Trump taps Army Secretary Mark Esper to lead Pentagon

Mark Esper tapped for pentagon head

President Donald Trump will nominate Army Secretary Mark Esper to be the next secretary of Defense, the White House said Friday night, in the administration's latest attempt to resolve months of uncertainty at the top of the Pentagon.

The news comes three days after the abrupt resignation of acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan, whose hopes of getting the job collapsed amid ethics questions, complaints about his leadership style and media scrutiny of his troubled family history.

Trump had said in early May that he intended to nominate Shanahan for the post, but he never submitted the paperwork to the Senate.


Manafort, Hannity talk Trump, Mueller in previously undisclosed messages

Manafort-Hannity messages released

A federal judge has released messages that appear to show former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort discussing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation with Fox News host and Trump ally Sean Hannity in 2017 and 2018.

The logs, which date back to mid-July 2017, show Manafort and a television host named “Sean” leveling repeated attacks on Mueller’s team of prosecutors. They also discuss Manafort’s legal representation, political attacks against Trump and content that appears to come from Hannity’s Fox News evening show.
