Trump Urges Sessions to Investigate Obamas Handling of Russia Meddling

The president suggested in a tweet that he wants his Justice Department to probe the Obama administration’s handling of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

By Gabrielle Levy, Political Reporter Feb. 21, 2018, at 10:25 a.m.

“Question: If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of the investigation?” Trump tweeted Wednesday. “Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Sessions!”

The assertion came a day after he tweeted that he was “much tougher” than former President Barack Obama in pushing back on Russian aggression, and after special counsel Robert Mueller handed down a pair of indictments on Friday and Tuesday as part of his investigation into Russia’s activity with regard to the campaign.


*Note that he said 'HIS' Justice Department lol

MSNBC and CNN is airing live from Tallahassee, Florida

the Parkland students speeches of the students.

Evil Fox news is not airing it. No shame, they will just go on trashing these brave young people

Nicole Wallace just said....

Trump has finally met his match....children.

I'm loving this, energized children and young adults fighting for a change

My daughter asked me why would the Trump ask ..

the students from the Parkland school to come to dc?

I told her because Florida is a state you need to win in Presidential elections, they have 29. Also, those students will be able to vote before Trump runs in 2020, so there is an only political reason to invite them.So they got an invite so he can tickle their ears. He thinks cause they are young they are dumb.

*Trump moves to ban 'bump stocks'*

By Kevin Liptak, CNN White House Producer

Updated 4:38 PM ET, Tue February 20, 2018

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he has directed his attorney general to propose changes that would ban so-called bump stocks, which make it easier to fire rounds more quickly.

"Just a few moments ago I signed a memo directing the attorney general to propose regulations that ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns," Trump said at a Medal of Valor event at the White House, addressing Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
"I expect these regulations to be finalized, Jeff, very soon," Trump said.

Moments earlier, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump ordered the Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to review bump fire stocks, which she said had been completed. She said movement on that front would take place shortly.
"The President, when it comes to that, is committed to ensuring that those devices are -- again I'm not going to get ahead of the announcement, but I can tell you that the President doesn't support use of those accessories," Sanders said.

Police: Student shoots himself in middle school bathroom in Ohio

Updated 33 mins ago
MASSILLON, Ohio -- Police in Ohio say a 7th-grader apparently brought a gun to school and shot himself inside a bathroom.

Investigators say no other students have been hurt and they don't know yet whether the shooting Tuesday morning was intentional.

A school official says the student is being treated at a hospital. His condition wasn't immediately known.

Parents rushed to Jackson Middle School, near Massillon, to pick up their children after the school sent out a notice about the shooting.

Authorities and school officials say they don't know whether the student was alone at the time of the shooting and haven't released any other details about what happened.

Massillon is located about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Cleveland.


Vancouver artists cartoon of Florida school shooting resonates

Pia Guerra's cartoon depicts football coach Aaron Feis, one of the 17 victims who died when a former student opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

VANCOUVER—A Vancouver illustrator said she’s overwhelmed by the social media response to her cartoon depicting a victim of the recent school shooting in Florida.

Pia Guerra’s Hero’s Welcome shows a young girl leading the school’s football coach Aaron Feis by the hand to meet a crowd of other people killed in school shootings.

Feis was one of 17 victims who died when a former student opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., on Wednesday.
The assistant football coach and school security specialist was trying to shield students from bullets when he was fatally shot.

“It gave me a little lump in my throat when the idea (for the cartoon) first kind of popped up,” Guerra said.

“I thought, I think that might be strong enough. But I had no idea it was going to hit people this hard. Everyone’s telling me that it broke them or they’re devastated or they got all punched in the gut with it or they’re in tears. And that was surprising.”

Hero’s Welcome had been liked on Twitter more than 32,000 times by Saturday morning.
