ㅤ”The Trump administration will try to scuttle the deal Chicago reached to set new limits on the city’s police powers, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday, adding that the consent decree reached under the Obama administration would leave residents more vulnerable to crime.
ㅤThe Justice Department will file a statement of interest this week asking a judge to reject the consent decree, marking another escalation of the battle between President Trump and Chicago, hometown of former President Barack Obama and a hotbed of anti-Trump resistance.
ㅤThe new agreement, which Chicago reached with the Illinois attorney general’s office, would limit how and when officers could use force, require more training, supervision and transparency, and create an independent monitor to judge whether city police are living up to the deal.
ㅤMr. Sessions said the city was ill-served by a consent agreement reached in 2015 by Chicago and the American Civil Liberties Union. Under that deal, the city agreed to end street-level enforcement tactics such as stop-and-frisk. The attorney general said that led to a surge in gun-fueled homicides.”

JEFF SESSIONS SLAMS FEDERAL JUDGES FOR ISSUING NATIONWIDE INJUNCTIONS HINDERING TRUMP’S AGENDA
ㅤ”‘In truth, this is a question of raw power, of who gets to decide the policy questions facing America: our elected representatives, our elected President, or unelected life-time appointed federal judges,’ Sessions said during a speech at the Federalist Society’s National Student Symposium. ‘Today, in effect, single district court judges are going beyond proper adjudicative bounds and making themselves super-legislators for the entire United States.'”

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE SUES CALIFORNIA OVER ‘SANCTUARY’ STATUS
ㅤ”The Department of Justice is taking action against the state of California — including Gov. Jerry Brown and Attorney General Xavier Becerra — for three laws they say obstruct the enforcement of federal immigration law.
ㅤThe Justice Department’s lawsuit — expected to be filed Tuesday night in the Eastern District of California — is asking for Assembly Bill 450, Senate Bill 54, and Assembly Bill 103 to be nullified.
ㅤJustice Department officials explained ahead of the filing that the three laws — which were all passed within the past year — are pre-empted by federal law and therefore violate the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution.”

ㅤ”Despite warnings from top officials at the agency, Trump reportedly told Attorney General Jeff Sessions through Chief of Staff John Kelly that he wants to see the memo released, believing that it will shed light on the special counsel investigation.
ㅤTrump ‘is inclined to have that released just because it will shed light,’ a senior administration official told the Post.
ㅤ’Apparently all the rumors are that it will shed light, it will help the investigators come to a conclusion,’ the official added.”

ㅤ”Sessions added that the administration had ‘been talking with the Senate Judiciary Committee for quite some time’ about the matter and that he ‘never understood, really, why there would be a problem’ in lifting the gag.
ㅤCounselor to the President Kellyanne Conway gave a similar assessment of the President’s stance on the matter during an appearance on CNN earlier Friday.
ㅤ’He believes, as many others do, frankly, that the FBI informant should be free to say what he knows,’ Conway said.”

ㅤ”While Democratic frustration simmers over Sessions’ ability to evade questions about his private conversations with the president without claiming executive privilege, Chuck Grassley appears to have concluded that the matter isn’t worth pressing because the Trump administration would likely prevail.
ㅤ’No president is likely to invoke executive privilege until forced to do so,’ Grassley spokesman George Hartmann said by email. ‘In this case, it’s premature and probably not a legitimate use of committee time and resources to force the issue.'”
