Donald Trump Parts Ways With Corey Lewandowski, His Campaign Manager

By MAGGIE HABERMAN
JUNE 20, 2016

Donald J. Trump is parting ways with his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, a move that comes as the presumptive Republican nominee faces challenges as it moves toward the general election.

“The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President, which has set a historic record in the Republican primary having received almost 14 million votes, has today announced that Corey Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign,” the campaign spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, said in a statement. “The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future.”

Mr. Trump had faced increasing concerns from allies and donors, as well as his children, about his preparedness to pivot toward a general election while holding onto his slender team.

New York, Connecticut Assault-Weapon Bans Let Stand by Top Court

June 20, 2016 — 9:32 AM EDT

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to question assault-rifle bans in New York and Connecticut, steering clear of an intensifying national debate after the shooting that killed 49 people in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Turning away two separate appeals, the justices left intact federal appeals court rulings that said the bans comply with the constitutional right to bear arms.

New York and Connecticut are among seven states that outlaw weapons similar to one used by Omar Mateen in the June 12 massacre.

Senate Democrats' Filibuster Seeking Tougher Gun Laws Ends after Almost 14 Hours

Senate Dems' filibuster for tighter gun laws ends in wee hours

CBS/AP
Last Updated Jun 16, 2016 2:23 AM EDT

WASHINGTON -- A Democratic senator upset with congressional inaction on gun violence led a nearly 14-hour Senate filibuster before yielding the floor early Thursday with a pledge that he and his colleagues would press aggressively for a legislative response to the tragedy in Florida, the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy ended a nonstop series of speeches with his Democratic colleagues shortly after 2 a.m. EDT after promising at the outset that he would remain on the Senate floor "until we get some signal, some sign that we can come together."

He evoked the Newtown school shooting in his state in 2012 in a plea that came as presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he would meet with the National Rifle Association about the terror watch list and gun purchases.

"For those of us that represent Connecticut, the failure of this body to do anything, anything at all in the face of that continued slaughter isn't just painful to us, it's unconscionable," Murphy said.

"There hasn't been a debate scheduled on the floor of the Senate," Murphy said as the filibuster neared an end. "There hasn't been a debate scheduled in the committees. ... There are 30,000 people dying" daily in the country, he said.
