Mueller Report Released – On Thursday, the Justice Department released a redacted version of the complete Mueller report to Congress and to the American people. The report contains ten instances in which President Trump may have attempted to obstruct the investigation of Robert Mueller. AG Barr gave a press conference prior to the report’s release and said it showed that there was no collusion with Russia regarding interference in the 2016 election. Democrats in the House are demanding that they receive all underlying evidence from Mueller in order to come to their own conclusions. In pursuing those goals, Democrats have subpoenaed the full unredacted Mueller report.

Pelosi Accuses Trump Of Inciting Violence – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has accused President Trump of being responsible for threats made against Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat with an extensive history of making anti-American and anti-Semitic comments. Following the unearthing of video in which Rep. Omar spoke of the 9/11 attacks on American landmarks as “some people did something,” President Trump retweeted a post of the video, thereby causing radicals to make threats towards Omar, according to Pelosi. Press Secretary dismissed the allegations as preposterous.

Trump Vetoes Yemen Measure – President Trump vetoed a measure passed by Congress that would have stopped US aid to Saudi Arabia in their ongoing battles with Iran-backed rebels in Yemen. The US gives billions of dollars to Saudi Arabia in military aid which assists them with their war in Yemen. Trump called the measure a dangerous and unnecessary measure to weaken his Constitutional authority and would endanger US citizens and servicemen. Congress does not have enough votes to override the veto.

Trump Plans To Flood Sanctuary Cities – President Trump this week said he intends to move forward with plans to flood so-called sanctuary cities with illegal immigrants. In a tweet, President Trump said that illegal immigrants who could no longer be held in detention centers would be released into sanctuary cities, which are cities that as a policy don’t apprehend illegal immigrants. Many Constitutional scholars believe that such a move by President Trump would be illegal and the plan is highly unlikely to ever be implemented.

Buttigieg Jumps In – ‘Mayor Pete’ Buttigieg of Indiana officially announced his candidacy for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. A little-known mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Buttigieg has found a surprisingly large following in the early months of his campaign. He is currently 37 years old, and if elected would be the youngest President in history. As of now, the youngest President to ever be elected was John F. Kennedy, who was 42 when he took office.
