FYI: The Trump admin has quietly resumed separating immigrant families at the border.
At one agency, the children were put into temporary foster care and shelters with little or no indication that they arrived at the border with their parents: propub.li/2QcsPvY

In the early months of the Trump administration, officials examined the effects of plans to deter immigration at the border by separating families and tracking down those who came to pick up UACs at shelters, according to a newly obtained memo:
North Korea has refused service of the lawsuit brought by Otto Warmbier's family.

Manafort tried to get in on a sweetheart Vatican real estate deal with Anne Hathaway's then-boyfriend, and talked about his expectations many many times.

“Without Manafort’s cooperation, we might never gain clarity about some of the most disturbing questions that still hover around him.”
Definitely important to include the hecklers here for Manafort's lawyers since they were the only ones telling the truth.
