Happy One Month to the Inquiry

It's been a month since House Democrats raised official questions about Trump's interaction with Ukraine. Things have only gotten more confusing.


A group of House Republicans barged into a closed-door House Intelligence Committee meeting yesterday, claiming that they're unhappy about the transparency of the inquiry.


The interruption pushed Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary Laura Cooper's interview back about five hours. In the end, Cooper's testimony supported the idea that the interaction was outside the norm.


Immigration

The Trump administration is working on an agreement with Guatemala to limit who is available for asylum.


Guatemala would be able to act as a safe place for migrants who seek asylum. The US allows immigrants to claim asylum unless they travel through a place that is deemed safe.


This is meant to decrease the number of immigrants seeking asylum in the US. The opposition says that this agreement can put the vulnerable in harms way.


Murder investigation in Essex

Facebook Trial

Facebook's founder was heavily questioned yesterday during a testimony on Capitol Hill regarding the platform's controversial cryptocurrency project. Mark Zuckerberg admitted the company would rethink its involvement in the project if it doesn't get US approval.
