    Michael Flynn in talks with Congress, wary of prosecution

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is in discussions with the House and Senate intelligence committees on receiving immunity from "unfair prosecution" in exchange for agreeing to be questioned as part of ongoing probes into possible contacts between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia, his attorney said Thursday.

    "General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit," said Flynn's attorney, Robert Kelner ...

    CORPORATE AMERICA NOT DOWN WITH TRUMP’S PLAN TO KILL THE PLANET
    G.E. joins ExxonMobil in slamming the White House’s environmental policies

    Even the nation’s most notorious polluters are uncomfortable with Donald Trump’s new executive action rolling back Barack Obama’s policies to reduce carbon emissions, protect the environment, and restrict the construction of new coal plants. Yesterday it was, improbably, ExxonMobil that came out against the Trump administration, hailing the Paris climate accord as “an effective framework for addressing the risks of climate change” ...

    Trump Not as Popular as Obama: Voters Give President 'F' Grade, Call Him Embarrassing, Poll Says

    President Donald Trump is doing much worse than President Barack Obama in his early months in office, a McClatchy-Marist poll released Friday found. More than 30 percent of Americans gave Trump an "F" grade for his job performance during his first two months in office. Obama was given an "F" from just 11 percent of voters during his first months in the White House. ...

    Trump changes relationship between White House, spy agencies

    ... Since taking office, Trump has challenged the integrity of intelligence officials, moved to exert more control over U.S. spying agencies and accused his predecessor of using government spycraft to monitor his presidential campaign.

    This week, Trump's White House is facing allegations that it funneled secret intelligence reports to a top Republican investigating his campaign's possible ties to Russian officials as well as Moscow's interference in the 2016 election ...

    Trump walks out of executive order signing ceremony without signing executive orders because help

    ... On Friday, President Trump was scheduled to sign executive orders in front of a press gaggle. Instead of actually signing the orders, Trump seems to have gotten a little bit cranky and walked straight out of the signing ceremony, leaving the orders unsigned.

    Trump didn't even respond to Vice President Pence's desperate pleas for the President to come back and sign the orders. Like a good boy, Pence then proceeds to gather the orders in a nice little folder for the president to sign later ...

    ‘Our Dishonest President’: L.A. Times editorial eviscerates Trump


    Since Donald Trump began his stunning ascent from real estate mogul and reality television star to wall-building, Muslim-ban-promising Republican candidate to GOP nominee to president, there have been plenty of piercing editorials about him and his policies.

    But perhaps none have been as scathing as the one published Sunday by the Los Angeles Times ...
