Trump’s Justice Department Just Made It Easier For Cops To Take People’s Stuff

Police now can ore easily seize property of suspeted criinalsThe Justice Department on Wednesday reversed an Obama-era policy that had limited law enforcement’s power to take cash and other property from individuals who haven’t been convicted of a crime, and in many cases haven’t been charged with one. But the new policy comes with limitations that Justice Department officials say will protect innocent property owners from potential abuse.

The directive concerns the controversial law enforcement practice known as civil asset forfeiture, which allows police to permanently take property, including cash, vehicles and homes, from suspected criminals, all without ever having to secure a conviction or even charge the owner with a crime. Once forfeited, the proceeds of the property flow back into department coffers.

Trump, Putin Had Second, Previously Undisclosed Meeting at G-20 Summit

Trump - Putin second meetingPresident Donald Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin a second time during the G-20 summit earlier this month, a White House official confirmed to NBC News Tuesday.

Trump spoke to Putin at the end of a couples-only social dinner at the summit in Hamburg, Germany, the official said, reiterating it was a social dinner. Pull-asides are typically less formal than official bilateral meetings, which Trump and Putin also shared.

The White House did not previously disclose or offer a record of what was discussed during the meeting, which was first reported by Ian Bremmer, president of the international consulting firm Eurasia Group.

Eighth man in Trump Tower meeting was linked to money laundering

Donald Jr.‘The eighth named attendee at a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between top Trump associates and a politically-connected Russian lawyer is a business associate of a top Moscow oligarch and was once identified as a key figure in a Congressional money laundering probe.

Irakly Kaveladze, until now the mysterious “eighth man” in the room, attended the meeting on behalf of Aras Agalarov, a billionaire real estate magnate with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin and who befriended the Trump family. A lawyer for Agalarov has confirmed Kaveladze’s attendance to other news outlets, though he did not respond to requests for comment from POLITICO.

Will Trump's exercise and eating habits catch up to him as stress mounts?

Trump health habitsHe’s 71, holds down an incredibly stressful job, and is overweight. He doesn’t exercise. His eating habits are less than ideal. And to top it all off, he doesn’t get enough sleep.

For anyone walking into a doctor’s office with those symptoms, stern warnings to change one's lifestyle are sure to follow.

But President Trump’s attitude toward diet and exercise isn’t simply a personal issue. It resonates in his policies on public health. Already his administration has relaxed nutritional standards on school lunches and he has yet to name any members of the president’s fitness council.

New Republic: Trump’s Russian Laundromat

Trump TowerIn 1984, a Russian émigré named David Bogatin went shopping for apartments in New York City. The 38-year-old had arrived in America seven years before, with just $3 in his pocket. But for a former pilot in the Soviet Army—his specialty had been shooting down Americans over North Vietnam—he had clearly done quite well for himself.

Bogatin wasn’t hunting for a place in Brighton Beach, the Brooklyn enclave known as “Little Odessa” for its large population of immigrants from the Soviet Union. Instead, he was fixated on the glitziest apartment building on Fifth Avenue, a gaudy, 58-story edifice with gold-plated fixtures and a pink-marble atrium: Trump Tower.

Trump Administration Adds More Foreign Guest Worker Visas

Visas for guest workers allowed by TrumpBowing to pressure from industries that rely on seasonal workers from overseas, President Donald Trump’s administration said Monday it will allow employers to bring in an additional 15,000 temporary workers this fiscal year to deal with what it described as a labor shortage.

Trump vowed during the campaign to discourage businesses from using foreign workers and to focus on hiring Americans first. But as president, he has faced bipartisan demand for allowing more temporary workers, not fewer. The announcement Monday indicates Trump is willing to acquiesce to employers on the issue.

The administration insisted the visa boost is not incompatible with its “America first” pledge.

Poll: 70 percent say Trump acts unpresidential

TrumpPresident Donald Trump’s behavior as commander-in-chief has unnerved respondents to a Washington Post/ABC News poll, 70 percent of which said he has acted in an unpresidential manner since assuming office last January.

Trump’s overall approval rating in the poll, portions of which were first released Sunday, dipped to 36 percent, a low-water mark for any president at this early stage of an administration.

But the president fared even worse when respondents were asked about his personal behavior: In addition to the 70 percent who said Trump has been unpresidential since moving into the White House, 68 percent said they do not see him as a positive role model and 56 percent said his conduct is “damaging to the presidency overall.”
