GETTING STARTED - The release of the Mueller report to the public leaves an array of loose ends. Among them, the special counsel’s report made 14 criminal referrals for other crimes, including 12 that aren’t public. (We already know about those for Michael Cohen and Greg Craig.) Meanwhile, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee has called on Robert Mueller to testify “as soon as possible.” And a hearing before the committee with AG Bill Barr is set for May 2.
ANOTHER LOSS - The Trump administration’s losing streak in court continues. The Ninth Circuit has largely affirmed California laws limiting the state’s cooperation with federal immigration enforcement officials. As Cheryl Miller reports, the laws authorize the California attorney general to inspect immigrant detention facilities, require employers to notify workers of an upcoming inspection of their work-eligibility documents and limit the information jails and prisons share with immigration agents about undocumented inmates. Add that to the earlier losses for the administration on matters of the environment, health care and more.
