If jurors were to acquit President Trump’s former campaign chairman on all 18 counts it would certainly be a setback for Mueller and would give the president another talking point.

John Carlisle Detroit Free Press Published 3:40 p.m. UTC Jun 10, 2018 THE UPPER PENINSULA – Randy Kluck liked to drink. If he wasn’t drinking wine on his front porch at his house he was drinking liquor on a barstool at some dive bar in Sault Ste. Marie, where he moved to be close to his son Kevin, who came here to attend college. The two were such buddies that Kevin refers to his dad by his first name. “He really was always my best friend,” said Kevin, 36. “So I just think of him as ‘Randy.’ ” Six years ago, they were drinking on the porch, and Randy came up with an idea — how about they spend the summer together on an epic road trip through the Upper Peninsula and write a book about all the amazing bars they’d stop at along the way?

POLITICS 04/13/2018 12:40 pm ET Updated 23 minutes ago Thomas Homan is unlike anyone who has run Immigration and Customs Enforcement before. What happens when you put a cop in charge of deporting people? By Roque Planas 170 The day Thomas Homan turned the immigration debate on its head, he could have just presented his agency’s budget request like he was asked. The first nine people to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency President Donald Trump picked Homan to lead last January, rarely courted controversy. Most of them were lawyers, adept at the art of bipartisan doublespeak and content to leave policy fights to politicians. They generally described ICE as a national security agency, emphasizing its investigative work and the number of criminals removed, while downplaying its core function: deporting people who pose little or no threat. But last June, when Homan was supposed to be explaining to a House subcommittee why ICE needed a 29 … [Read more...] about Trump’s ICE Chief Loves His Deportation Force — And Thinks You Should Too
