Strzok's lawyer Aitan Goelman argued that even though his client has "played by the rules," he has been targeted by "unfounded personal attacks, political games and inappropriate information leaks."

Republicans Turn On Trump About Border
As President Donald Trump arrived on Capitol Hill Tuesday to talk immigration with congressional Republicans, he faced an unusually stiff headwind from his typically loyal allies: They're pushing back on him because they're worried about the effect of his policies on their electoral prospects in November. "I support, and all of the Republican conference support, a plan that keeps families together while their immigration status is determined," said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. NBC

The cost of holding migrant children who have been separated from their parents in newly created "tent cities" is $775 per person per day, according to an official at the Department of Health and Human Services — far higher than the cost of keeping children with their parents in detention centers or holding them in more permanent buildings.

Principal Mary Ann Hale dreads weekends. By the time Fridays roll around, 74-year-old Hale, a principal at West Elementary School in McArthur, Ohio, is overcome with worry, wondering whether her students will survive the couple of days away from school.

The Truth About Trump Separating Families
Family separation on the border only occurs under one of the following conditions: 1) If a migrant adult falsely claims to be a parent, or 2) is a threat to the child, or 3) is charged with a crime, such as illegal entry. The Obama administration did separate families, sometimes by thousands of miles by deporting male migrants a long distance from their point of entry under the Alien Transfer Exit Program. InfoWars
VOA VIEW: Obama did much worse - liberals are making much out of nothing.

Clinton Was Never Subject Or Target Of FBI Investigation
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her aides were never a target or even a subject in the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private server, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony. “Nobody was listed as a subject of this [Clinton email] investigation at any point in time,” Horowitz said while testifying to the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday, adding that fact was “surprising” for a criminal probe.

Former ICE Head: Kids May Never See Parents Again
Migrant parents separated from their kids after crossing the border may end up losing their kids for good, according to the former head of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “Permanent separation.

Adults are typically deported from the US quickly while children are low priority — and may just ultimately stay in the US as wards of the state or even wind up being adopted, he explained. NY Post

Pope Criticizes Trump Policy On Migrant Family Separation
Speaking to Reuters, the Pope said he supported recent statements by U.S. Catholic bishops who called the separation of children from their parents “contrary to our Catholic values” and “immoral”. “It’s not easy, but populism is not the solution,” Francis said on Sunday night. In a rare, wide-ranging interview, the pope said he was optimistic about talks that may lead to a historic agreement over the appointment of bishops in China, and said he may accept more bishops’ resignations over a sexual abuse scandal in Chile. Reuters
VOA VIEW: The Pope should worry more about cleaning the acts committed by his priests.

Cambridge Analytica-Linked Academic Spurns Idea Facebook Swayed Election
The academic researcher who harvested personal data from Facebook for a political consultancy firm said Tuesday that the idea the data was useful in swaying voters’ decisions was “science fiction”. “People may feel angry and violated if they think their data was used in some kind of mind-control project,” Aleksandr Kogan, the now notorious Cambridge University psychologist whose app collected data on up to 87 million Facebook users, said during a US senate hearing. “This is science fiction. The data is entirely ineffective.” Guardian

How Cyber's Forward Defense Could Backfire
In recent months, the Pentagon has begun taking a more aggressive posture in its approach to cyber conflicts, seeking to slow attacks by taking the fight to enemy networks. But experts worry that approach could escalate cyber conflicts in ways the U.S. may not be prepared to absorb. How we got here: Cyber Command, the Department of Defense's unified command for cyberwarfare, was conceived under President George W. Bush. It has been elevated in the chain of command under President Trump, who gave it increased autonomy as part of a Defense-wide effort to give the military more agility. Axios

Two Ohio Firefighters Placed On Leave after Allegedly Making Firehouse Porn
Two firefighters from Akron, Ohio, were placed on leave this week after they were caught allegedly making porn at the fire station. Officials say that Lt. Art Dean and Provisional Lt.

Iran Says No Plans To Increase Missile Range-Rejects Talks With Trump
Iran’s government again ruled out negotiations with U.S. President Donald Trump over Tehran’s military capabilities and regional influence, saying such talks would be against the values of the Islamic Republic.

Chris Christie, who ran for the Republican nomination in 2016, urged President Trump to abandon the “zero tolerance” policy that has led to the separation of children from their parents who were caught trying to enter the U.S. illegally at the border.

Reporter Groped And Kissed In World Cup Live Broadcast
A gross creep brazenly groped and smooched a TV-journalist as she reported on the World Cup from Russia.

Minimum Wage For Waiters, Most Controversial Issue In Washington DC Primary
On Tuesday, voters in Washington, D.C. take to the polls to vote in primaries across the district. Since D.C. is a one-party state, Democrats are practically shoe-ins, and this year few incumbents face real challenges in the primaries. The most controversial issue is a ballot initiative that would raise the minimum wage — for wait staff. The nation's capital has a tiered minimum wage: $3.33 per hour for tipped staff (waiters, waitresses, busboys, and bartenders), and $11.50 for everyone else. Employers must bring the worker up to minimum wage if tips don't do the job. Initiative 77 would change that, and quite a few waiters — and more than a few local politicians — oppose it. PJ Media

Obama Prosecuted Nearly Half A Million Illegals
The prosecutions include both illegal immigrant violators of Title 8 of the U.S. Code 1325 and 1326 used to penalize first time and multiple offenders respectively. The DHS data further shows that the Obama administration referred on average 1 out of 5 adults apprehended at the border for criminal prosecution.

FBI Refusing To Allow Anti Trump Agents To Be Named
The FBI has asked the Justice Department’s office of the inspector general to withhold from Congress the names of three bureau employees found to have exchanged anti-Trump text messages, including from one attorney who worked on the special counsel’s investigation. “We went to the FBI.

Starbucks Closing 150 Stores
Americans’ long-running joke about a Starbucks on every corner may be nearing its end.

Trump Uses Language Of Exterminators In Attack On ‘Illegal Immigrants’
It has become commonplace to observe that the 45th president of the United States publicly uses coarse and violent language that none of his predecessors would have deployed.

They don’t care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country, like MS-13.  NY Mag

Facebook Users Troll State Department Over Tone-deaf ‘Family Travel Hacks’ Event
Hey all you parents and guardians out there, the Department of State, with some help from the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs, hosted a helpful Facebook Live this morning with tips for traveling with children. How nice! “Family Travel Hacks,” read the Facebook event title. The event was, let’s say, well, ghoulish in light of the United States’ ongoing separation of border families, where kids are being kept in cages and are crying out so loudly for their parents, a guard described it as an “orchestra” in audio from inside one of the detention centers.
