[I]n the wake of Donald Trump Jr.’s admission to taking and sitting in on a meeting built around gaining significant political opposition research on Democrat Hillary Clinton last year from the Russian government, one Republican lawmaker is suggesting the president remove his family from political matters.
Texas U.S. Representative Bill Flores, a Republican now in his fourth term in the state’s 17th District, told CBS local affiliate KBTX-TV on Wednesday that Trump’s children, as well as his son-in-law, should be bounced from the White House.

From The Guardian:
Tobacco companies have moved swiftly to strengthen their grip on Washington politics, ramping up lobbying efforts and securing significant regulatory wins in the first six months of the Trump era.
Day one of Donald Trump’s presidency started with tobacco donations, senior figures have been put in place within the Trump administration who have deep ties to tobacco, and lobbying activity has increased significantly.
In the wake of an affectionate butt-tap between French president Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte, here’s some decidedly unromantic news out of Paris.

It sounded like a scene from a Cold War spy movie: Donald Trump Jr. was in a helicopter flying low on the outskirts of Russia’s capital city.
“Buzzing the treetops outside Moscow at 100 knots,” Trump Jr. tweeted, adding the aircraft was flying “below radar in closed airspace,” for reasons he did not explain.
It was June 2011, and the future president’s son was on a business trip to Moscow, where Trump Jr. had recently become a regular — and admiring — visitor.
“I really prefer Moscow over all cities in the world,” he had told an audience a few years earlier.

From NBC NEWS:
WASHINGTON — Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, blasted President Donald Trump on Sunday for his administration’s lack of a response to Russia’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 election, saying, “This whole idea of moving forward without punishing Russia is undercutting his entire presidency.”
