    Leaked draft of Rick Perry grid study debunks his attack on renewable energy
    But will the Trump administration erase those findings from the final Energy Dept. study?


    Back in April, Energy Secretary Rick Perry ordered a study to back up his claims that solar and wind power were undermining the U.S. electric grid’s reliability.

    UNDER SIEGE, JARED KUSHNER GOES ON THE ATTACK
    As the White House descends into chaos, the president’s son-in-law reportedly shifts onto the offensive


    ... Citing six sources familiar with the matter, Politico reports that Kushner has pushed for the White House to respond to the unfolding Donnygate drama with more force but has been met with resistance from a raft of Trump’s top aides, some of whom argue the issue is an outside matter, and should thus be dealt with externally. Kushner disagrees, arguing that, as the scandal affects Trump’s presidency, it should be handled with urgency by the in-White House communications shop ...

    Trump administration weighs returning diplomatic compounds to Russia


    ... The top issue on the table for Russia are those diplomatic compounds, or "dachas," in Maryland and New York.

    More people support Trump impeachment now than Nixon at the start of Watergate
    A grim poll for the 45th president


    A Monmouth University poll released Monday found that more people support impeaching Trump now than supported Nixon’s impeachment just as the Watergate scandal began to unfold in the summer of 1973. At present, 41 percent of the public believes Trump should be impeached, while 53 percent disagree; after the existence of the Nixon’s White House tapes was revealed in July 1973, only 26 percent of the country believed he should be removed from office ...

    Trump’s war on ISIS is causing staggering civilian casualties
    Iraqis and Syrians are dying in horrifying numbers as U.S. airstrikes ramp up


    ... As of July 13, over 2,200 civilians have died since Trump took office in January, according to Airwars, an independent military tracking organization. If that pace continues, the number will easily surpass the total number killed during the entirety of former President Barack Obama’s tenure, under whom 2,300 civilians died between 2014 and 2016. While approximately 80 civilians died per month under Obama, that number is closer to 360 under Trump — a dramatic rise which comes as U.S. military involvement in both Iraq and Syria increases ...
