Trump signed an executive order doing what reports already said he was going to do, limit asylum applications only to those who reach the United States through a legal port of entry and trying to pressure them to ask for asylum in Mexico instead. Meanwhile, a group of refugees in the caravan have filed a lawsuit over this clear violation of their rights, helped by an American legal aid group. (more…) Read more

Richard Ben-Veniste and George Frampton, both of whom were part of the special counsel team during Watergate, have an op-ed column in the New York Times explaining how a recent judicial precedent and an example from the Watergate team provides Robert Mueller with a way around new Acting AG Matt Whitaker to get his findings directly to Congress.

Ruth Marcus calls new Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker a crackpot and she’s dead right. Here’s just one example she cites.
