    The Department of Health and Human Services is burning through finances fast. The care and reunification of migrant children separated from their families at the border appears to be the root of it. There is concern this consequence of the Trump administration's border policy will drain funds from other programs, like public health and unemployment services.

    Day 545: Big results.

    1/ Trump said he does not believe that Russia is still targeting the U.S. with efforts to undermine American democracy, contradicting his director of national intelligence. Last week, Dan Coats said that "the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack." And, in particular, Russia is the "most aggressive foreign actor, no question. And they continue their efforts to undermine our democracy." Coats described Russia as one of the "worst offenders." Intelligence officials in the U.S. and U.K. also believe Russia is planning to ramp up digital operations targeting western countries now that the World Cup and the Trump-Putin Helsinki summit have ended. Trump added: "No president has been as tough as I have been on Russia. I think President Putin knows that better than anyone. Better than the media." (Reuters / CNN)

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-u...-idUSKBN1K82AV

    2/ Trump defended his summit with Putin, tweeting that "people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki." The claim comes less than 24 hours after Trump attempted to backtrack spin his statements that he had misspoken and meant to say "I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia" that interfered in the election. Trump promised: "big results" and "many positive things." (Washington Post / New York Times)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.0c7718f29e9b

    Trump crossed out a line about bringing those responsible for election hacking to justice in his statement correcting his remarks during his press conference with Putin. Trump prepared four pages of handwritten notes for his meeting with congressional leaders yesterday, part of which read, "I have on numerous occasions noted our intelligence findings that Russians attempted to interfere in our elections. A̶n̶y̶o̶n̶e̶ ̶i̶n̶v̶o̶l̶v̶e̶d̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶m̶e̶d̶d̶l̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶j̶u̶s̶t̶i̶c̶e̶." Trump used a black marker to cross out the part about bringing the hackers to justice. (Washington Post)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.ddbc4e9a4992

    3/ Democrats are calling for Trump's translator during his private meeting with Putin to testify before Congress. "I'm calling for a hearing with the U.S. interpreter who was present during President Trump's meeting with Putin to uncover what they discussed privately," Sen. Jeanne Shaheen tweeted. Rep. Joe Kennedy echoed Shaheen's calls: "And that was only what we saw on live TV. @realDonaldTrump's translator should come before Congress and testify as to what was said privately immediately." (CNN / HuffPost)

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/17/polit...ess/index.html

    4/ Trump questioned why NATO should come to the defense of smaller alliance members like Montenegro if it came under attack. "Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong people," Trump said when asked whether the U.S. would come to the country's defense. "They're very aggressive people. They may get aggressive, and congratulations you're in World War III." The only time NATO invoked Article Five – an "armed attack" on one member "shall be considered an attack against them all" – was after the U.S. was attacked on 9/11. (NBC News / CNN / Washington Post)

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/17/polit...fox/index.html

    5/ The Justice Department added a second charge against Russian national Maria Butina, who was charged on Monday with conspiracy to act as an agent of a foreign government. A federal grand jury indicted Butina on Tuesday on new charges of acting as an unregistered foreign agent of the Kremlin since at least 2015. Butina was arrested on Sunday because she appeared to have plans to flee the U.S. (Politico / Washington Post)

    poll/ 68% of Americans consider Russia either unfriendly or an enemy of the United States, a 9% increase from last year (59%). (NBC News / SurveyMonkey)

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    https://slate.com/news-and-politics/...ackfiring.html

    Various machinations of the Republican North Carolina legislature to make sure a seat in the state Supreme Court doesn't flip to Democrat (again) seems to be backfiring.

    Among their tricks are making sure that their candidate is listed first on the ballot and that he is clearly marked as a Republican, where the last election the winner was listed first on a nonpartisan ballot, with the expectation that multiple Democrat candidates could split the vote in their favor.

    Then a guy well had primarily been a Democrat got in at the last second as a Republican candidate.

    Is she no longer using their son as an excuse to not be seen with him for long stretches of time?

    Sanders is currently deflecting from questions about the Russian spy by attacking "leftist media hysteria" for allegedly claiming it was a different politician with red hair.
