Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s appearance Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee will be a high-stakes test for a Trump official who has become a central figure in the scandal engulfing the White House over Russia and the firing of James B. Comey as FBI director but has so far kept a low profile.


Sessions, a former Republican senator from Alabama, will face tough questions from his former colleagues on a number of fronts that he has never had to publicly address in detail.




Democrats plan to ask about his contacts during the 2016 campaign with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, which the attorney general failed to disclose fully during his confirmation hearing.


They also want him to explain his role in the firing of Comey, despite the attorney general’s recusal in March from the Russia investigation after revelations about his meetings with Kislyak.








Attorneys general for the District of Columbia and the state of Maryland sued President Trump in federal court on Monday, alleging that payments by foreign governments to his global business empire violate anti-corruption provisions in the Constitution.


Trump’s decision to retain ownership in his businesses “calls into question the rule of law and the integrity of the country’s political system,” according to the suit filed by D.C. Attorney General Karl (D) and Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh (D).


华盛顿特区总检察长A. Racine和马里兰州总检察长Drian Brian E.Frosh在新闻发布会上说,特朗普总统“公然违反”美国《宪法》的薪酬条款。该条款禁止公职人员接受外国领导人的任何有价物品。马里兰州总检察长说,利益冲突是如此之大,特朗普在既定日期内是基于美国抑或其公司最大利益行事,美国人无从确认。


At a news conference, the two said Trump is “flagrantly violating” the Constitution’s emoluments clause, which prohibit U.S. officeholders from taking anything of value from foreign leaders. The conflicts of interests are so vast, Frosh said, that Americans cannot say for sure whether Trump’s actions on a given day are taken in the best interest of the country or that of his companies.






A West Coast federal appeals court upheld the freeze on President Trump’s travel ban Monday, declaring that Trump had exceeded his lawful authority in suspending the issuance of visas to residents of six Muslim-majority countries and suspending the U.S. refu­gee program.


A three-judge panel with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled against the administration unanimously. Their ruling is another blow to Trump — though the administration has asked the Supreme Court to step in and save the ban in a different case.




The ruling by the 9th Circuit was both logistically and symbolically important — keeping in place the broadest blockade on Trump’s order and creating new legal and practical paths for the directive to die.


Unlike other courts in the past, the three judges did not dwell on Trump’s public comments, nor did they declare that the president had run afoul of the Constitution because his intent was to discriminate. Instead, they ruled that Trump’s travel ban lacked a sufficient national security or other justification that would make it legal, and that violated immigration law.
