“Robert Mueller’s ongoing special counsel investigation into Donald Trump’s ties to Moscow heated up again on Thursday, this time revealing that the president pushed his lawyer to stop Attorney General Jeff Sessions from recusing himself from the Russia probe.
According to The New York Times, “President Trump gave firm instructions in March to the White House’s top lawyer: stop the attorney general, Jeff Sessions, from recusing himself in the Justice Department’s investigation into whether Mr. Trump’s associates had helped a Russian campaign to disrupt the 2016 election.” MORE
“The credibility of Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been called into serious question after the Justice Department unsealed a plea deal taken by a former foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump’s campaign.
The documents revealed that former adviser George Papadopoulos attended a “national security meeting in Washington D.C.,” on March 31, 2016, along with Trump, Sessions and others. In that meeting, Papadopoulos “introduced himself,” and explicitly stated “in sum and substance, that he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump and [Russian] President Putin.” MORE
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions released a memo this morning declaring that the Department of Justice does not interpret Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as offering protections to transgender individuals in the workplace. This is a sharp reversal from the Obama-era interpretation.

As a law enforcement agency, the Department of Justice must interpret Title VII as written by Congress.” MORE

“Donald Trump did not hesitate to compare U.S. intelligence officers to Nazis but after white nationalists waving the Nazi flag erupted in violent clashes throughout downtown Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, the president failed to call out racists and chide white supremacists — even after a car plowed into a group of anti-racists protesters, killing at least one person.
A spokesperson for the University of Virginia Hospital cited one death and at least 35 injured on Saturday afternoon, the violent aftermath of a what appears to be a deliberate attack. White supremacists gathered near the college campus to protest the removal of a Confederate statute. Self-identified “alt-right” protesters —a key constituency of Trump’s base made up mostly of white men— marched through the campus carrying tiki torches Friday night.” MORE
