House Judiciary Committee to hold Barr contempt vote; Colorado community reels from school shooting

House Judiciary Committee set to vote on whether to hold Barr in contempt
The House Judiciary Committee is set to proceed Wednesday morning with a vote on whether to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress after late-Tuesday night See More negotiations stalled with the Justice Department over access to the full, unredacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Barr released a redacted version of the Mueller report last month, but Democrats wanted to see the entire document. In a letter written to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote that, in the face of the committee’s contempt vote, Barr would be “compelled to request that the president invoke executive privilege with respect to the materials subject to the subpoena.”  It remained unclear whether Democrats would seek to hold Barr in civil, criminal, or inherent contempt of Congress. Regardless of which form it takes, a contempt charge against Barr would mark a major opening salvo in what could be a lengthy, acrimonious court battle between House Democrats and President Trump’s administration over Mueller’s report.

Appeals court upholds Trump administration policy on asylum seekers

The revelation was contained in a trove of newly released, partially redacted FBI documents from the agency’s investigation into whether Clinton mishandled classified information — a probe known as the “Midyear Exam.” The document release reveals numerous episodes in which the Clinton team either suspected it had been hacked or seemingly acknowledged that security measures had come up short.

Tiger praised for ‘not conforming’ to Trump haters
Tiger Woods was chided Monday night moments after receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom award from President Trump. His remarkable victory at the Masters a month earlier seemed like a distant memory. Some critics questioned whether he deserved the award; other noted his business dealings with the Trump organization. Some argued that Woods would be forever tainted for his association with Trump. The Baltimore Sun’s editorial board was particularly scathing, writing that it “wish[ed] Mr. Woods would have taken a stand against hatred and declined the award given the racial and ethnic rift Mr. Trump has widened and exploited in the country since taking office.” Still, Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce praised Woods for standing by his relationship with Trump. “He likes the president,” she said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”  “I’m glad that he’s not conforming.” Bruce called Woods “the perfect recipient of the Medal of Freedom.”
