  • The article titles below highlight many issues in the news last week that were drowned-out by Trump’s 6 days of noise about Alabama being in Dorian’s cross-hairs. “Not!”

This means that money previously allocated for disaster relief — to help rebuild after a hurricane, for example — is now being diverted to fund an increased number of beds for the growing number of ICE detainees,” by Sasha Abramsky, Truthout.

  • Editor’s note: Greenblatt was the Trump Organization’s in-house lawyer prior to the President appointing him as envoy. He and Alan Weisselberg were two of Trump’s primary business confidants at the company. The Trump Org. is currently under investigation for providing funds to kill stories prior to the 2016 election about Trump’s past associations with porn stars. Could Mr. Greenblatt now be called in to testify before the House Judiciary Committee in their “catch-and-kill” stories investagation, which forced him to resign? hmmm. Read more
