James O'Keefe of Object Veritas

A federal judge in Detroit on Wednesday lifted the temporary restraining order a major teachers union won against the conservative group Project Veritas and denied a request for a preliminary injunction.

A Wayne County circuit judge in September blocked Project Veritas, a group run by provocateur James O’Keefe, from disclosing videos of other information it obtained in an undercover operation carried out against the American Federation of Teachers chapter in Detroit.


Secret Service denies hiding Trump golfing from media

Truck hides Trump golf games
The Secret Service and a local sheriff’s office on Wednesday denied using a white box truck to block CNN cameras from recording President Trump playing golf at his course in West Palm Beach, Fla.
“The USSS is in the business of protection and investigations not in commissioning vehicles to block the media’s view of the President’s golf swing,” the Secret Service told CNN.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Department also told the network that it did not order the box truck.

Trump has spent each of the last three days at his golf course in Florida. On Tuesday, CNN cameras captured the president during a round with Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), PGA tour player Bryson DeChambeau and former PGA pro Dana Quigley.

 Assoc. receives large donations after attacks on Mueller

An organization representing current and former FBI agents on Tuesday said it received more than $140,000 in donations to the group's two charities, amid ongoing criticism directed at the agency by President Trump.

The FBI Agents Association tweeted on Tuesday that the charitable donations will go toward improving the lives of the children of deceased FBI agents.

"This month, more than 2,000 donors contributed over $140,000 to our two charitable funds. This money will send the children of deceased Agents to college and help FBI families in need," the association tweeted.


Robert Mueller May Indict Paul Manafort Again

Mueller may indict Manafort againFrom its inception, two things about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation were clear: first, the White House’s biggest concern was that Mueller would follow the money; and second, Mueller is following the money.

It’s been seven months since Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein ordered Bob Mueller to take over the FBI’s counterintelligence probe into possible links between the Kremlin and people associated with the Trump campaign.\

Trump’s lawyers have long said they expected the probe to stay focused and end quickly. Instead, Mueller has assembled a team of prosecutors with expertise in handling financial investigations and white-collar crime, and obtained guilty pleas for crimes that weren’t committed during the election year.


Ex-Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski accused of sexual assault

Lewandowski charged with sexual assaultA singer and potential congressional candidate says she has filed a sexual assault complaint against Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, for hitting her twice on her buttocks at a Washington gathering in November.

Joy Villa, a Trump backer who wore a Make America Great Again dress at the Grammys this year, said on Tuesday she planned to meet detectives in Washington next week.

In a phone interview from Tampa, Florida, Villa said she was initially reluctant to come forward because she was worried about any backlash. But she said she called Washington’s metropolitan police department on Christmas Eve after a friend who witnessed the incident spoke about it publicly and others urged her to speak out.


Where is Trump’s Cabinet? It’s anybody’s guess.

Where is Trump's cabinet?

The Cabinet members carrying out President Donald Trump’s orders to shake up the federal government are doing so under an unusual layer of secrecy — often shielding their schedules from public view, keeping their travels under wraps and refusing to identify the people and groups they’re meeting.

A POLITICO review of the practices of 17 Cabinet heads found that at least eight routinely decline to release information on their planned schedules or travels — information that was more widely available during the Obama and George W. Bush administrations. Four other departments — Agriculture, Labor, Homeland Security and Education — provide the secretaries’ schedules only sporadically or with few details. The Treasury Department began releasing weekly schedules for Secretary Steven Mnuchin only in November.


US to make at least $285m cut to UN budget after vote on Jerusalem

Nikki Haley: US to cut $285m to UNThe US government has announced significant cuts in its United Nations budget obligations for 2018-2019 in what will be interpreted as a further ratcheting up of pressure from the Trump administration looking to bend decision-making at the international body to its will.

In a statement released over the holiday, the US Mission to the United Nations said next year’s budget would be slashed by over $285m and unspecified reductions would also be made to the UN’s management and support functions.

The announcement didn’t make clear the entire amount of the budget or specify what effect the cut would have on the US contribution.
