Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen expects to keep her job thanks to her "tough" response to the caravan of Central American migrants headed toward the U. Michael Avenatti will not run for president in after all. Presidents using Air Force One for campaign purposes are supposed to pay for a portion of the operating cost from their political party or reelection campaign. Trump complained about the cost of an "uncontrollable" arms race with Russia and China , despite previously bragging about his increase in military spending. Mike Pompeo said the U. If Russia fails to meet the deadline, the U.
Trump declared himself a "Tariff Man" and threatened to hit China with more tariffs if a trade deal with Beijing falls apart. The Dow responded by falling nearly points. Cohen's lawyers argued that his cooperation with Robert Mueller warranted a sentence of "time-served.
In seeking leniency, Cohen's attorneys claim his false statement to Congress was based on Trump and his team's attempts to paint interactions with Russian representatives "as having effectively terminated before the Iowa caucuses of February 1, Trump tweeted that all of those charges were "unrelated to Trump. Cohen believed Trump would offer him a pardon if he stayed on message during conversations with federal prosecutors.
That was before Cohen implicated Trump under oath in the illegal hush-money scheme with Stormy Daniels, which could be used as part of Mueller's obstruction of justice probe in determining whether Trump tried to illegally influence a witness in the investigation. File under '18 U. Mark Warner added that while he doesn't know whether Cohen was instructed to lie to Congress, Cohen's plea contradicts Trump's multiple denials during the campaign that he did not have any business links to Russia.
Warner called it a "very relevant question that the American people need an answer to. The incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee: Cohen's cooperation is proof that Russia had "leverage" over Trump during the presidential campaign. The leading Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee: Cohen's cooperations confirms that "the president and his business are compromised. Adam Schiff, "there is now testimony, there is now a witness, who confirms that in the same way Michael Flynn was compromised, that the president and his business are compromised. James Comey agreed to testify to Congress about the FBI's investigations during the campaign as long as lawmakers release the full transcript of his testimony within 24 hours.
Comey and his attorney filed a legal challenge last week to the Republican-led effort to compel him to testify. His attorney argued that the legal action was "to prevent the Joint Committee from using the pretext of a closed interview to peddle a distorted, partisan political narrative about the Clinton and Russian investigations through selective leaks. In August , Prince Mohammed told associates that if he couldn't persuade Khashoggi to return to Saudi Arabia, then "we could possibly lure him outside Saudi Arabia and make arrangements," according to the CIA assessment.
Trump intends to formally notify Canada and Mexico of his intention to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement in six months in order to force Congress to pass his new trade deal. Trump is using the threat of disrupting the entire North American economy to get the deal passed. Trump and President Xi Jinping, however, remain far apart on basic trade policy issues and neither show signs of backing down on their demands. All of the world leaders at the G20 Summit in Argentina — except for Trump — released a joint statement reaffirming their commitment to fighting climate change.
The House and Senate plan to vote this week to push the government shutdown deadline back two weeks and delay a fight over Trump's border wall until right before Christmas. Congress has until Friday to approve a funding extension before funding for the federal government runs out. Trump and Putin had an "informal" meeting at the G20 Summit. I have my own. We stayed in our own positions. In Cohen's version, he says the discussions with at least one Russian government official continued through June There was never a definitive end to it. It just died of deal fatigue. In Cohen's guilty plea , he said he briefed Trump's family members about the continued negotiations.
Cohen has been in the spotlight this week following new revelations about his outreach to Russian officials for help with a proposal for a Trump Tower in Moscow. The two panels could possibly hold public hearings this fall. In addition, Trump Jr. The three committees are competing for information and witnesses with little coordination between them and Mueller's investigation, leading to conflicts over how they can share information. Committee members still hope to interview Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner about the meeting they held at Trump Tower with the Russian lawyer claiming to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton.
Kushner and Manafort have already spoken to the Senate Intelligence Committee. He also said he couldn't "recall" if he discussed the Russia investigation with his father. Michael Cohen discussed the idea with Dmitry Peskov, who serves as Putin's press secretary, hoping that giving the penthouse to Putin would encourage other wealthy buyers to purchase their own. The plan fizzled when the project failed to materialize, and it is not clear whether Trump knew about the plan to give the penthouse to Putin. It is also unclear whether or not they worked with Michael Cohen on the deal.
Trump even has his own legal code name: Mueller is focusing on Stone's role as a potential go-between for the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks, which published thousands of DNC emails that were stolen by Russian intelligence officers. Mueller's team has evidence that Stone may have known in advance about the release of the emails, and investigators may also be looking into potential witness intimidation by Stone. Prosecutors will file a more detailed explanation of what they believe Manafort lied about to investigators on Dec.
Manafort will be sentenced in March after he pleaded guilty to two charges of conspiracy and witness tampering. Manafort is currently in jail in Alexandria, Virginia. The acting attorney general championed a patent firm in while fielding fraud complaints about it. Matthew Whitaker was an advisory board member of World Patent Marketing, which the FTC sanctioned in and described as an "invention promotion scheme" that was "bilking millions of dollars from consumers.
Ryan Zinke responded to criticism about his various ethical scandals by calling a Democratic lawmaker a drunk , accusing Rep. The number of children who were uninsured in the U. Six Trump administration officials violated the Hatch Act for tweeting support for Republicans or Trump on their government Twitter accounts , according to the Office of Special Counsel, which declined to take disciplinary action.
Roughly two million federal workers were warned that it may be illegal for them to discuss impeaching or resisting Trump , according to a memo distributed by the Office of Special Counsel. The Trump administration approved five requests from companies to conduct seismic tests off the Atlantic shore that could kill tens of thousands of dolphins, whales, and other marine animals. Seismic testing maps the ocean floor and estimates the location of oil and gas.
The agreement faces uncertain prospects in Congress next year, where Democrats will control the House. Cohen previously said talks regarding the Moscow project stalled in January , when in fact negotiations continued through June with Cohen traveling to Russia for meetings on the project. Cohen also told Congress that when the project allegedly stalled, he emailed Dmitry Peskov, a top aide to Putin, seeking help, but claimed he never received a response. That was also false. Cohen and Peskov discussed the project for 20 minutes by phone.
Prosecutors also said that Cohen continued to have contact in with Felix Sater, a Russian developer assisting with the project. Cohen briefed Trump on the status of the project more than three times. In July , Trump tweeted: It's Cohen's second guilty plea in four months. Trump's company was pursuing a plan to develop a Trump Tower in Moscow while he was running for president.
Discussions about the Moscow project began in September until it was abandoned just before the presidential primaries began in January , emails show. The details of the deal had not previously been disclosed. The Trump Organization has turned over the emails to the House Intelligence Committee, pointing to the likelihood of additional contacts between Russia and Trump associates during the campaign.
Trump's business associate promised that Putin would help Trump win the presidency if he built a Trump Tower in Moscow. Cohen said he never heard back from Peskov and the project never got off the ground. Peskov said that he had seen the email but that it was not given to Putin. Trump's personal lawyer met with the House Intelligence Committee today. Michael Cohen emailed Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, during the presidential campaign seeking help getting a Trump Tower built in Moscow. Peskov said he never responded to the email.
Cohen is the 33rd person Robert Mueller has charged. Rudy Giuliani attempted to explain why Trump would call Cohen a liar if they had the same understanding of the facts, saying: Given the fact that he's a liar, I can't tell you what he's lying about. He cited Moscow's seizure of Ukrainian assets and personnel for the cancellation. The call logs were turned over to Mueller and draw a direct line between Stone and Trump, which has rattled Trump's legal team and showed how closely the special counsel is scrutinizing their relationship.
The Department of Veterans Affairs told congressional staffers that it will not reimburse veterans who were paid less than they were owed as a result of delayed or deferred GI Bill payments. VA officials promised the opposite earlier this month. The VA said it can't make the payments it owes without auditing its previous education claims because that would delay future payments. The Senate Judiciary Committee cancelled a hearing on judicial nominees as Jeff Flake's demand for a bill to protect Mueller continues. Flake is holding firm to his vow to vote against judicial nominees on the floor and in committee unless Mitch McConnell schedules a vote on the bipartisan special counsel legislation.
More than 4 in 10 companies plan to raise prices to offset the higher cost of production due to Trump's trade war. About 1 in 10 companies said the tariffs would encourage them to move more jobs offshore. Federal agents raided the Chicago City Hall office of Trump's former tax lawyer. Trump added a caveat that his responses were to the best of his recollection. For comparison, Trump also does not "remember much" from the meeting with George Papadopoulos, where Papadopoulos offered to arrange a meeting with Putin.
Trump, however, has previously claimed to have "one of the great memories of all time," using it as justification for not using notes during his meeting with Kim Jong Un, and blaming Sgt. La David Johnson's widow when he stumbled over the solider's name during a condolence call. The briefings made tensions worse between Manafort and the special counsel after prosecutors learned about them.
While Manafort's attorney's discussions with Trump's lawyers didn't violate any laws, they did contribute to Manafort's deteriorating relationship with Mueller.
The Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committee passed the bill on a bipartisan basis, , this spring, but McConnell has argued that it's not necessary, because he doesn't believe Trump wants to fire Mueller. The acting EPA chief credits Trump for a 2. Trump took office in January Wheeler also said he has not finished reading the report. The Trump administration waived FBI fingerprint checks for caregivers and mental health workers in charge of thousands of teens at a migrant detention camp.
None of the 2, staffers working at a tent city holding camp with more than 2, migrant teenagers have gone through the rigorous FBI fingerprint background check process. Instead, the camp has one for every kids. Trump blamed the Federal Reserve for the GM plant closures and layoffs, as well as the recent declines in the stock market. Trump said he is "not even a little bit happy" with Jerome "Jay" Powell, who Trump picked to head the central bank.
Not even a little bit. They're making a mistake because I have a gut, and my gut tells me more sometimes than anybody else's brain can ever tell me. The Senate advanced a bipartisan bid to pull U. The measure passed , signaling a rebuke to Trump and a reversal for the Senate, which rejected the same measure nine months ago. Pompeo repeated the Trump administration's claim that there was no "direct reporting" connecting Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman to Kahshoggi's murder. The Trump administration had been urging senators against withdrawing military support for the war in Yemen.
Trump threatened to cancel his upcoming summit with Vladimir Putin over Russia's recent maritime skirmish with Ukraine. Trump said he is waiting for a full report on the incident, during which Putin captured three Ukrainian ships and their crews in the Black Sea on Sunday, before making a final decision on whether he will cancel the planned summit in Argentina this week.
The report "will be very determinative," Trump said. Prosecutors claim Manafort's "crimes and lies" about "a variety of subject matters" relieve them of any promises made to Manafort as part of the plea agreement. Manafort cannot withdraw his guilty plea and without a deal, he now faces at least a decade in prison after pleading guilty in September to conspiring to defraud the U.
In August, a federal court jury in Alexandria, Va.
Religion, Spirituality, and Health: The Research and Clinical Implications
Manafort met with the WikiLeaks founder around March — about the same time he joined Trump's presidential campaign. Several months later, WikiLeaks published the Democratic emails stolen by Russia. Manafort also met with Assange in and It's unclear why Manafort met with Assange or what they discussed. Manafort and WikiLeak both denied that Manafort had met with Assange.
Something about this story doesn't smell right. Jerome Corsi emailed Roger Stone two months before WikiLeaks released emails stolen from the Clinton campaign , saying "Word is Julian Assange plans 2 more dumps…Impact planned to be very damaging. Eight days later, Corsi emailed Stone saying that WikiLeaks had information that would be damaging to Clinton's campaign and planned to release it in October. Corsi claimed he received "limited immunity" from Mueller in order to talk about a "cover story" he crafted for Stone to help explain Stone's Aug. Corsi rejected a deal offered by Mueller to plead guilty to one count of perjury , saying: I'm not going to agree that I lied.
I will not lie to save my life. I'd rather sit in prison and rot for as long as these thugs want me to. Mueller's team has been investigating a meeting between Manafort and Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno in Quito in They're specifically asking if WikiLeaks or Julian Assange were discussed in the meeting.
A federal judge appeared reluctant to unseal a criminal complaint against Assange due to the government's "compelling interest" in keeping the records under wraps until he is arrested. Trump also accused the special counsel team of forcing witnesses to lie. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, meanwhile, said she was not aware of any discussions about a potential presidential pardon for Manafort.
Jeff Flake has said he will oppose all of Trump's judicial nominees until there is a vote on a bill to codify some protections for special counsel investigations. Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said Republicans are willing to hold a vote "if that's what it's going to take" to get more of Trump's nominations through the Judiciary Committee. Trump threatened to cut subsidies for GM after the company said it was planning to cut up to 14, jobs and end production at several North American factories. Fox News coordinated its interview questions before on-air interviews with Scott Pruitt.
In one instance, the EPA approved part of the show's script. The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said "it's awfully tough" for Ivanka Trump to comply with government email rules. Bob Goodlatte suggested that Ivanka's use of a personal email account to conduct government business was "very different" from the private email server Hillary Clinton used during her time as secretary of State. House Republicans are meeting with Trump today in an attempt to avoid a government shutdown on Dec. Republican leaders promised Trump that they would fight to secure more funding for his border wall after the midterms.
Trump hasn't ruled the idea out, but it's not clear whether Democrats will concede. House Republicans released a page tax plan they hope to pass during the lame-duck session. The bill would impact Americans' retirement savings, multiple business tax breaks, and would redesign the IRS.
The House Republicans could vote on the proposal as early as this week. The incoming Mexican government, however, denied that it reached an agreement with the Trump administration, known as Remain in Mexico, and insisted that talks of a deal were premature. The fumes were carried by the breeze toward unarmed families hundreds of feet away.
Mexico's Interior Ministry said around migrants were involved in the march for faster processing of asylum claims for Central American migrants, but it was a smaller group of migrants who broke away and tried the train crossing. The border was shut down in both directions for several hours. The suit alleges that Trump, along with Ivanka and Trump Jr. Trump's personal and business interests, and violations of basic legal obligations for nonprofit foundations.
He claimed the suit was an act of political bias. Jared Kushner directed the Department of Defense and State to inflate the value of the arms deal between the U. Trump launched drone strikes during his first two years in office on Yemen, Pakistan, and Somalia. Once in office, Trump relaxed the burden of proof requirements for targets put in place by the Obama administration, which counterterrorism experts say explains the increase in strikes.
The Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to take up three cases challenging Trump's decision to ban transgender people from serving in the military. The move is an attempt to bypass federal appeals courts and bring the case directly to the high court for a decision. District courts across the country have so far prevented the policy from going into effect, and the D. Circuit is scheduled to hear arguments in early December. Jerome Corsi rejected a deal from Robert Mueller to plead guilty to one count of perjury. He claimed he was forgetful when investigators asked him whether he knew beforehand that WikiLeaks was going to publish emails stolen from Democratic computers during the campaign.
He said he did not want to plead guilty to intentionally lying. George Papadopoulos was ordered to start his day prison sentence today for lying to federal investigators in the Russia probe , Papdopoulos has asked to delay the start of his sentence while a constitutional challenge to the special counsel's investigation of Russian election interference remains unresolved.
The head of Russian military intelligence died "after a long and serious illness. The Office of Special Counsel is looking into whether acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker violated the Hatch Act , which prohibits federal employees from accepting political contributions. According to the Office of Special Counsel guidance, "penalties for Hatch Act violations range from reprimand or suspension to removal and debarment from federal employment and may include a civil fine.
Shine was accused in multiple lawsuits of enabling and helping to cover up alleged sexual harassment by Fox News executives. John Kelly's "Cabinet order" expanded the authority of troops at the border to include "a show or use of force including lethal force, where necessary , crowd control, temporary detention, and cursory search" in order to protect border agents. The order could conflict with the Posse Comitatus Act, which prohibits the military from acting as law enforcement on U.
Trump also blamed Monday's ruling against his administration on an "Obama judge," who wrote that Trump's "rule barring asylum for immigrants who enter the country" outside a port of entry "irreconcilably conflicts" with federal immigration laws and "the expressed intent of Congress. Bob Corker and Democrat Bob Menendez specifically asked whether the administration believed that bin Salman was involved in the murder. Under the Magnitsky Act, Trump can be required to determine whether a global leader was responsible for human rights violations.
A federal judge blocked a Mississippi state law that banned most abortions after 15 weeks , ruling that it "unequivocally" violated women's constitutional rights. Judge Carlton Reeves wrote that "the fact that men, myself included, are determining how women may choose to manage their reproductive health is a sad irony not lost on the court. A federal judge in Detroit declared that a law banning female genital mutilation is unconstitutional. He dismissed charges against two doctors and six others accused of subjecting at girls to the cutting procedure, writing that "as despicable as this practice may be," Congress did not have the authority to pass the law that criminalizes female genital mutilation, and that it's a matter for the states to regulate.
Both parties have reached an impasse as a partial government shut down looms two weeks away. As the trade dispute with China continues, farmers across the country are either letting their crops rot or plowing them under instead of harvesting as they wait and hope for better prices next year. Robert Mueller still wants to question Trump about his actions in the White House , in addition to the written answers Trump submitted in response to questions about Russian interference in the election.
Rudy Giuliani signaled that the Trump team would fight any questions they believe violate executive privilege — especially if they relate to potential obstruction of justice. Mueller asked a federal judge to order George Papadopoulos to start serving time in prison on Monday as scheduled. Papadopoulos asked to delay his two-week prison sentence while a constitutional challenge to the special counsel's appointment in a separate case in Washington is resolved. Mueller's team responded that Papadopoulos waived his rights to appeal when he pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. A few stories worth your attention that were drowned out by the daily shock and awe.
But that's not all — these topics also make for great turkey talk. You can thank me later. Trump has repeatedly claimed that "I built what I built myself. Trump also helped his parents undervalue their real estate holdings by hundreds of millions of dollars when filing their tax returns. Trump has refused to release his income tax returns, breaking with decades of practice by past presidents. There is no time limit on civil fines for tax fraud. This is a must read. An abstract summary does not suffice. Trump won't take action against Saudi Arabia or Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the death of Jamal Khashoggi , issuing an exclamation-point laden statement that defended the Kingdom and effectively closed the door on the issue.
The Trump administration plans to redefine the legal definition of gender as strictly biological , unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with. The effort by the Department of Health and Human Services would establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX, effectively narrowing the definition of gender and deny federal recognition and civil rights protections to transgender Americans. Ivanka Trump repeatedly used a private email account to conduct government business in A White House review found her personal email use included exchanges with cabinet secretaries and forwards of her schedule to her assistant, with hundreds of messages being in violation of federal records rules.
Ivanka claimed she didn't know the rules about using a personal email account for government business. For the latest, check the Current Status — a news tool I built so you always know what the fuck just happened today in politics. Have a safe and happy holiday. I'll see you Monday. Mueller has not ruled out trying to compel Trump to sit for an interview after reviewing the written answers. The White House counsel at the time, Don McGahn, pushed back, saying Trump had no authority to order a prosecution, and that while he could request an investigation, that could prompt accusations of abuse of power.
Matthew Whitaker worked for a charity called the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust for three years, starting in Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer requested that the Justice Department inspector general investigate communications between Whitaker and the White House beginning in , when Whitaker was appointed chief of staff to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The group has be designated as an "extremist group with ties to white nationalism," according to documents produced by Washington state law enforcement. The document also warns that the Proud Boys are "actively recruiting in the Pacific north-west" and that they have "contributed to the recent escalation of violence at political rallies held on college campuses, and in cities like Charlottesville, Virginia, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington.
The evidence included an intercept showing a member of the person team calling an aide to Prince Mohammed and saying "tell your boss" that the mission was accomplished. Trump called Saudi Arabia a "truly spectacular ally," telling senior White House officials that he wants Prince Mohammed to remain in power as a check on Iran. Trump also claimed that the CIA "haven't assessed anything yet," but "as of this moment we were told that [Prince Mohammed] did not play a role. Trump won't listen to what he called the "suffering tape" of Khashoggi's murder inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.
Trump also maintained that the crown prince told him "maybe five different times" and "as recently as a few days ago" that he had nothing to do with the killing. The White House official responsible for U. Kirsten Fontenrose had pushed for tough sanctions against the Saudi government in the response to the killing of Khashoggi.
The two have had multiple conversations about the probe over the last year. Trump said he would "not get involved" if Whitaker moved to restrict it. They're asking a federal judge to remove him because the appointment violates the Constitution since Whitaker has not been confirmed by the Senate. Adam Schiff added that not only is Whitaker's appointment "flawed," but "that he was chosen for the purpose of interfering with the Mueller investigation.
He auditioned for the part by going on TV and saying he could hobble the investigation. The White House did not comment on whether Trump misspelled Schiff's name intentionally. Melania Trump's office, who has spearheaded anti-cyberbullying efforts through her "Be Best" initiative, also did not comment. On Friday, Judge Timothy J. Kelly ruled that Acosta's right to due process had been violated when the White House suspended his pass. After the ruling, the White House sent Acosta a formal letter outlining a "preliminary decision" to again suspend his pass once the temporary order expires, citing a "fail[ure] to abide" by "basic, widely understood practices" when asking follow-up questions and not giving up the microphone right away.
CNN and Acosta asked a federal judge for an emergency hearing to allow the judge to enter a more permanent preliminary injunction. The White House instead told CNN they would restore Acosta's press credentials as long as he follows new rules at presidential news conferences, which include asking just one question at a time and "physically surrendering the microphone. Bill McRaven called Trump's attack on the news media "the greatest threat to democracy in my lifetime. The 5, troops Trump sent to the Southwest border will start coming home just as some members of the refugee caravan arrive at the border.
All the troops should be home by Christmas. Trump claimed Finland's president told him they rarely have forest fires because they "spend a lot of time raking. During his visit to California, Trump declined to blame the deadliest and most devastating wildfire in the state's history on climate change, instead declaring: I want great climate.
Trump spent more than five hours in meeting over three days this week with his attorneys working out written answers for Mueller about alleged collusion between his campaign and Russia during the presidential election. Despite telling reporters that "the questions were very routinely answered by me," Trump's temper boiled during all three meetings. Seemingly out of nowhere, Trump targeted Mueller on Twitter yesterday, calling the special counsel team "thugs" and the investigation a "witch hunt. Senate Republicans are urging Trump to quickly nominate a permanent attorney general to end bipartisan concern over the future of the special counsel.
The challenge, apparently, is persuading Trump to trust the traditional choices he doesn't have a personal relationship with, like former attorney general Bill Barr or former deputy attorney general Mark Filip. Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker assured Lindsey Graham that he won't end Mueller's investigation , despite previously publicly disparaging the special counsel. Dick Cheney's former top national security aide has come under scrutiny from Mueller. The special counsel has been looking into the communications and political dealings of John Hannah, the former Cheney adviser who later worked on Trump's State Department transition team, including his interactions with Lebanese-American businessman and fixer George Nader, who brokered meetings between foreign dignitaries and the Trump campaign, as well as Joel Zamel, social media "guru" with deep ties to Israeli intelligence.
George Papadopoulos asked a federal judge to keep him out of prison until a constitutional challenge to Mueller's investigation is resolved. The former Trump campaign adviser pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and is scheduled to serve a day sentence starting on Nov. The disclosure came in an unrelated court filing where prosecutors inadvertently pasted text from a similar court filing into the wrong document.
The filing abruptly switched on the second page to discussing someone named "Assange," who had been charged under seal that was the subject of significant publicity, lived abroad, and would need to be extradited. It's unclear what Assange, who's been living in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since , has been charged with, but the charges likely center around the publication of emails from Democrats during the presidential campaign, and may involve the Espionage Act, which criminalizes the disclosure of national defense-related information.
The White House said it would follow the court order and "temporarily reinstate the reporter's hard pass," as well as "develop rules and processes to ensure fair and orderly press conferences in the future. Kelly of Federal District Court in Washington, ruled that the Trump administration had most likely violated Acosta's due process rights, but declined to weigh in on the First Amendment issues cited by CNN. If journalists don't "behave," Trump said, "we'll end up back in court and we'll win.
Florida election officials ordered a hand recount of ballots in the U. A machine count showed the two candidates divided by a margin of less than 0.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments over whether Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross can be compelled to testify in a case regarding the addition of a citizenship question to the census. The addition of the question has been challenged in six lawsuits around the country. Another Trump adviser is writing a tell-all book about his time in the White House. The book by Cliff Sims, who joined the West Wing staff on Day One as a special assistant to the president, is set to be published in January. Trump offered to nominate Mira Ricardel as ambassador to Estonia after Melania forced the deputy national security adviser out of the White House.
Ricardel turned down the posting, but has since been offered nearly a dozen jobs from which to choose. Wheeler previously represented coal and energy-industry interests as a lobbyist. Trump honored a campaign donor with the Presidential Medal of Freedom — the nation's highest civilian commendation. Trump has been asking aides and advisers whether they think Pence is loyal. While Trump hasn't suggested dropping Pence from the ticket, outside Trump advisers have suggested that Pence may have used up his usefulness. Others believe that asking about Pence's loyalty is a proxy for asking about whether Nick Ayers is trustworthy, who Trump has considered replacing John Kelly with.
The renewed attack on the special counsel comes one day after Mitch McConnell blocked an effort to protect Mueller's work. Mueller's team is investigating witness tampering by Roger Stone. Mueller is exploring whether Stone tried to intimidate and discredit a witness who contradicted his story about his contacts with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during the presidential campaign.
In a two-paragraph legal filing, Mueller said former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates is cooperating with prosecutors on "several ongoing investigations," and it's not appropriate to start his sentencing process. Text messages show Stone discussed WikiLeaks with a friend six days before it began releasing the Clinton campaign's hacked emails.
The text messages appear to show Randy Credico providing regular updates to Stone on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's plans to release the hacked emails. In the exchange, Credico tells Stone on Oct. The special counsel has accused Concord Management and Consulting of funding a propaganda operation to sway the presidential election in Trump's favor. Concord was charged with conspiring to defraud the U. Concord is controlled by Russian businessman Evgeny Prigozhin, a Russian oligarch with close ties to Putin. Another six suspects have been indicted.

Trump will meet with Kim Jong Un for a second summit. The condition of the meeting does not include a requirement that North Korea provide a complete list of its nuclear weapons and missile sites. Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti was arrested for felony domestic violence. Officers in West Los Angeles took an incident report involving an allegation of domestic violence from an unidentified victim.
Avenatti denied ever being "physically abusive," and called the felony allegation against him "completely bogus. A federal judge will rule on restoring Jim Acosta's press pass on Friday , postponing a decision on granting CNN's request for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction. Trump nominated a handbag designer to be the next ambassador to South Africa. Lana Marks is a member of Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort.
Marks has no prior diplomatic experience. A year-old Muslim girl found notes in her elementary school cubby that said "You're a terrorist" and "I will kill you. The lawsuit alleges that the ban violates CNN and Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights and they're asking for a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction that would restore his access right away. Almost every major news organizations has sided with CNN. First Amendment lawyers say courts have a history of defending access for journalists , and the White House's shifting justifications for revoking Acosta's press pass won't help it in the coming legal fight.
The memo's disclosure comes a day after Maryland asked a Federal District Court judge to issue an injunction and declare that Rod Rosenstein the acting attorney general. The incoming ranking members of several House committees opened an investigation into Whitaker's involvement in World Patent Marketing , which was charged last year by the Federal Trade Commission with promoting an "invention-promotion scam.
Whitaker walked away from a taxpayer-subsidized apartment-rehabilitation project in Iowa after years of cost overruns, delays and other problems. Whitaker praised Trump in his first public speech as acting attorney general , telling an audience that "under President Trump their k s are doing pretty good right now. Lindsay Graham said he supports a bill to protect Robert Mueller's investigation from any politically motivated firings. Graham also said that he would urge Mitch McConnell to allow a vote on the bill. But it probably would be good to have this legislation in place just for the future.
Flake said he will not vote to confirm nominees on the Senate floor or advance them in the Senate Judiciary Committee after Chris Coons unsuccessfully attempted to force a Senate vote on the special counsel legislation. Mitch McConnell objected to the request for a vote from Flake. Stone and Trump spoke weekly, which is now being scrutinized by Robert Mueller.
Stone repeatedly said during the campaign that he had communicated with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange through a "backchannel," "intermediary" or "mutual acquaintance.

The other five were honorary commissioners whose main function was to attend board meetings. The Permanent Chairman had to be an honorary commissioner, but otherwise they were not essential to the commission's operations. The only Metropolitan legal commissioner not appointed as a Lunacy Commissioner was named in the Act as Secretary.
Its principle functions were to monitor the erection of a network of publicly owned county asylums , required under the County Asylums Act , and the transfer of all pauper lunatics from workhouses and outdoor relief to a public or private asylum; to regulate their treatment in private asylums, and with the Poor Law Commission monitor the treatment of any remaining in workhouses or on outdoor relief. The Lunacy Commission was also to monitor the regulation of county asylums and county licensed houses by JPs, and to regulate the conduct of hospitals for the insane.
With the JPs it monitored the admission and discharge of patients from all types of asylum. It collected, collated and analysed data on the treatment of lunacy and advised on the development of lunacy law and policy. It also continued to license London's madhouses. In the summer of it became scandalous public knowledge that officers of the Poor Law Commission acting privately had profited by the shortage of asylums by establishing a low cost asylum at Haydock Lodge in Lancashire for pauper lunatics from all over England and Wales.
November or December The first number was quoted in The Illustrated London News for The New County Lunatic Asylum now building at Mickleover near Derby There are many persons now living who can remember passing the gates of old Bethlehem and hearing, as they passed, the cut of the lash and the screams of its victims.

The pessimistic period in asylum history developed during the second half of the nineteenth century. Medical theory was strongly influenced by social darwinist beliefs that insanity is the end product of an incurable degenerative disease carried in the victim's inherited biology, and the experience of asylums, and reanalysis of their statistics, undermined the earlier beliefs in their therapeutic value.
In the late 19th and 20th centuries, the pessimistic period in asylum history ran gently into a backwater period. Most progress in mental health policy took place outside the asylums, in specialist hospitals like the Maudsley , or in outpatient departments, and the asylums became the quiet back wards where chronic patients live.

The other, who stood praying, turned suddenly the place but for the flaring alter lights was dark and kissed the dreadful creature by her side.
I shuddered, and yet her face wore no look of loathing nor pity. The expression was a divine one of habitual love. She wiped the idiot's lips and stroked the shaking hands in hers, to quiet the sad hysterical caresses she would not check.

This new system meant that the medical information could now be more easily accessed and standardised through systematic coding.
The idea behind these changes was to provide a more accurate and consistent basis for asylum statistics. Separating the Medical and Civil registers meant that while the Civil Register could be filled in immediately and more time taken over diagnosis for the Medical Register.

A single paragraph, towards the end of the book, praises chemicals in the control of patient behaviour after "protracted baths" "We should not fail to note that the solution of many difficulties faced by the older doctors is the contribution of the chemical industry which in the last decade has created an imposing list of new soporifics and sedatives.
The first sedative was chloral hydrate , recommended by Liebreich. Almost every other drug with similar effects was first manufactured and administered in Germany.
