U.S. leans toward sending rocket systems to Ukraine

Rockets for Ukraine

The Biden administration is inclined toward sending Ukraine advanced, long-range rocket systems that leaders in Kyiv have requested for months, but no final decision has been made, two U.S. officials tell POLITICO.

Neither President Joe Biden nor Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has approved the next batch of aid for Ukraine, the officials said. But the U.S.-made Multiple Launch Rocket System and the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, some versions of which can launch rockets farther than any weapons Ukraine currently possesses, could be part of the package.

Around 100,000 ‘Dreamers’ to graduate without shot at work permits

100,000 dreamers graduate

Around 100,000 undocumented immigrants will graduate high school in 2022 without a shot at work permits, the first time in a decade that a majority of so-called Dreamers will not be eligible.

Most undocumented 2022 graduates have not been in the country long enough to be covered by Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the Obama-era policy that was the focus of attacks and litigation during the Trump administration. Immigrants covered by DACA are known as Dreamers.

DACA was put in place as a temporary stopgap in 2012, giving the right to work and study, and deferral from potential deportation, to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as minors before 2007.


Russia-Ukraine war: What happened today (May 27)

Ukrain - 5/27

As Friday draws to a close in Kyiv and in Moscow, here are the key developments of the day:

Russian forces appeared to have taken control of the strategic railway hub of Lyman in Ukraine's eastern Donbas region. The area remains under constant bombardment in a grinding fight. The geography of the Donbas makes the war there an artillery battle, and Ukrainian soldiers say they are outgunned by Russia's heavy weaponry. The Biden administration has sent Ukraine dozens of howitzers, but Ukrainian military officials say Russia is targeting the weapons as they appeal for more Western-supplied weaponry.


Former Army Reservist and alleged white supremacist found guilty in Capitol riot trial

Capitol attack

A former Army reservist and security guard at a Naval weapons station was found guilty on all counts for his role in the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Prosecutors portrayed Timothy Hale-Cusanelli of New Jersey as an extremist, who hoped for a second "civil war." The government presented evidence of Hale-Cusanelli using racist, antisemitic and anti-gay slurs, yelling obscenities at officers protecting the Capitol, and later enthusiastically boasting about breaching the building to a roommate. As jurors heard at trial, that roommate was secretly wearing a recording device on behalf of investigators with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) and the FBI.


‘It’s all preventable’: tackling America’s workplace suicide epidemic

Workplace suicides in USAt about 4.30am on 18 January this year, 27-year-old Michael Odell, a travel nurse who was working at Stanford hospital in Stanford, California, walked off the job during a night shift. Two days later, after his roommate reported him missing, Odell’s body was found by the Alameda county sheriff office’s dive team in the water near the Dumbarton Bridge in San Francisco, along with his car.

His roommate, Joshua Paredes, said he witnessed Odell’s declining mental health. Odell was working long hours, had recently moved to the area after the death of his mother and was having trouble finding a new therapist after a lapse in his health insurance coverage.


Kevin McCarthy refuses to comply with January 6 attack panel subpoena

Kevin McCarthy

Kevin McCarthy, the top Republican in the House, indicated on Friday to the House select committee investigating the Capitol attack that he would not cooperate with a subpoena unless he could review deposition topics and the legal rationale justifying the request.

The California congressman’s response adopts an adversarial position similar to other subpoenaed Republican Congress members, and it sets a conundrum for the panel over whether to entertain the requests that also challenge the January 6 inquiry’s legitimacy.

McCarthy appeared to tell the select committee in an 11-page letter through his lawyer that he would not consider complying with the subpoena until House investigators turned over materials that would reveal what the panel intended to use in questioning ahead of a deposition.


Trump loses bid to thwart New York inquiry into his business practices

Trump inquire goes on

Donald Trump, the former US president, on Friday lost a bid to stop the inquiry by the New York state attorney general, Letitia James, into his business practices, allowing the three-year investigation to move forward.

Trump sued James in federal court in upstate Albany, arguing the civil investigation into whether the Trump Organization misled banks and tax authorities about the valuations of its assets should be halted because he felt James, a Democrat, was using the case to further her political career.

James replied in a January court filing that Trump’s “allegations of political disagreement cannot insulate” him from the investigation.

US district judge Brenda Sannes dismissed the lawsuit on Friday, stating in a written decision there was “no evidence” that James’s investigation was undertaken in bad faith.


SF Giants Manager Won't Take Field For National Anthem In Protest After Uvalde

Gabe Kapler

San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler said Friday he will refuse to take the field for the national anthem in protest of government inaction on gun violence following Tuesday’s deadly shooting at an elementary school in Texas.

“I don’t plan on coming out for the anthem going forward until I feel better about the direction of our country,” Kapler said in Cincinnati ahead of the Giants’ series opener against the Reds. “I don’t expect it to move the needle necessarily, it’s just something that I feel strongly enough about to take that step.”

Kapler, a former professional baseball player who has managed the Giants since 2020, elaborated on his protest in a Friday blog post. He reflected on the sports world’s immediate reaction to an 18-year-old gunman killing 19 elementary school students and two teachers.

'Wrong decision': Police should have confronted Texas school gunman sooner, official says

Texas school shootingThe head of the Texas Department of Public Safety said Friday law enforcement officers should have entered the classroom sooner in Uvalde, Texas, during a massacre that left 19 children and two teachers dead earlier this week.

The commander at the scene of the shooting at Robb Elementary School decided the incident had transitioned into a "barricaded suspect" situation, not an "active shooter" — a decision that Steven McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, said was wrong while speaking during a news conference.

"From the benefit of hindsight, where I'm sitting now, of course it was not the right decision. It was the wrong decision. Period. There's no excuse for that," McCraw said.
