More than 1,500 police officers were scheduled to work extra hours to stem the violence that seems to repeat every July Fourth in Chicago.

“As will be reflected in filings tomorrow in the census-related cases, the Department of Justice is shifting these matters to a new team of Civil Division lawyers going forward," DOJ spokesperson Kerri Kupec told The Hill in a statement on Sunday.
"Since these cases began, the lawyers representing the United States in these cases have given countless hours to defending the Commerce Department and have consistently demonstrated the highest professionalism, integrity, and skill inside and outside the courtroom."
"The Attorney General appreciates that service, thanks them for their work on these important matters, and is confident that the new team will carry on in the same exemplary fashion as the cases progress,” Kupec added.
A DOJ official told ABC News earlier that James Burnham, currently the deputy attorney general in the department’s civil division, and a former lawyer in the White House counsel’s office, will be leaving the team...
Following a 2018 financial settlement between Florida attorney Bradley Edwards - who represented one of Epstein's accusers, only to be later sued by Epstein, Edwards claimed that Donald Trump was the 'only person' who provided assistance when Edwards served subpoenas and notices to high-profile individuals connected to Epstein.
In January 2016, Vice.com ran Silverstein's story on Trump's ties to Epstein, which framed them as more social - including dinner parties, two plane trips, and Epstein hanging out at Trump's Mar-a-lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. As Radar reported last April, "According to an investigation by Radar, Trump was among dozens of renowned New Yorkers who knew Epstein socially but ostracized him after Palm Beach police uncovered the financiers sleazy double life," adding that Trump "once barred child molester Jeffrey Epstein from his famed Mar-a-lago club after the presidential candidate caught him hitting on a young girl."

If big names start dropping and it gets ugly, what would make a fantastic smoke screen to distract everyone? Beware of false flags.
Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), said the Department of Homeland Security's removal branch is set to execute a plan to find, detain and ultimately deport at least a million migrants who have surpassed final removal orders. Cuccinelli said President Donald Trump will make good on his threat to deport "millions" of migrants... Cuccinelli backed up Trump's deportation plan, saying the American people should not be surprised by such removal operations, and the ICE migrant roundups have simply been "held up" by Washington political games.
Since June 10, agents in Del Rio Sector have arrested over 1,000 Haitian nationals, which include a group of over 100 on June 22 and a group of over 200 on June 24. Prior to June 10, Del Rio Sector had arrested only 17 Haitian nationals this fiscal year. This demographic is unique in that most are family units with a biological minor child who is a national of a third country, usually in South America. About 800 of the 1,000 apprehensions are members of a family unit, and include over 230 minor children who are nationals of a third country such as Brazil and Chile. Many of these family units have resided in Chile and other South American countries for several years prior to departing for the United States.

During an interview with CBS News on Sunday, Cuccinelli said despite a delay of mass deportations by President Trump two weeks ago, ICE agents are ready to detain and deport the roughly one million illegal aliens who have been ordered deported from the country.
[ICE agents are] ready to just perform their mission which is to go and find and detain and then deport the approximately one million people who have final removal orders. They’ve been all the way through the due process and have final removal orders. Who among those will be targeted for this particular effort or not is really just information kept within ICE.

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said after talks with the European Commission and German government that all 65 would be relocated to other parts of the EU. The migrants were brought ashore after being transferred to the Maltese navy from the Alan Kurdi rescue ship.
Two other rescue ships defied a ban by docking in Italy in recent days. The development infuriated Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini. German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has said his country will take up to 40 of the migrants from the two vessels. He also wrote to his Italian counterpart imploring him to re-open ports to humanitarian ships. Mr Salvini responded angrily. "Dear German government," he was quoted as saying by Reuters news agency, "I'm not reopening the ports... If anything we're going to put... [the migrants] in a car and take them to the German embassy."

Details on the case remain sketchy, though the involvement of the Public Corruption Unit caught the attention of legal experts. Gene Rossi, a Law&Crime trial analyst and former federal prosecutor for the Eastern District of Virginia, suggested to us that Epstein may face other charges.

Federal agents descended on the suburban Maryland house with the flash and bang of a stun grenade, blocked off the street and spent hours questioning the homeowner about a theft of government documents that prosecutors would later describe as “breathtaking” in its scale.
