U.S. Gun Makers Send Weapons South As Migrants Flee North
In early February, the Trump administration finalized a rule change that will make the deals even easier — ending congressional oversight of many overseas gun sales. The president is set to move the export control process from the State Department to the Commerce Department, which is charged first and foremost with increasing sales for American companies. As a result, bureaucrats will no longer have to notify Congress of many gun sales worth $1 million or more. The only thing keeping the change from coming into force is a hold placed by Democratic Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey, and experts are not sure how long he can keep the rule from taking effect.

Hospital 'abused' vulnerable adults in Durham - BBC News
The 17-bed hospital is one of scores of such units in England that provide care for just below 2,300 adults with learning disabilities and autism. [...] Dr Paul Lelliott, deputy chief inspector of hospitals at the CQC, told Panorama: "On this occasion it is quite clear that we did not pick up the abuse that was happening at Whorlton Hall.

"All I can do is apologise deeply to the people concerned."

The Department for Health and Social Care said it treated allegations of abuse with the "utmost seriousness", but could not comment any further because of the police investigation.

Many are detained under the Mental Health Act.


The Panorama findings come eight years after abuse was uncovered at another hospital for people with learning disabilities, Winterbourne View, near Bristol.

After that programme, the then prime minister, David Cameron, promised the mistreatment of patients would never happen again.

Justice Department rejects House Oversight subpoena on census citizenship question - Axios
"This is a massive, unprecedented, and growing pattern of obstruction. ... The subpoena that was issued to Mr. Gore was adopted by our Committee on a bipartisan basis.  Neither the White House nor the Department of Justice has asserted any privilege that would relieve Mr. Gore of his legal duty to comply. Both President Trump and Attorney General Barr are now openly ordering federal employees to ignore congressional subpoenas and simply not show up—without any assertion of a valid legal privilege.  These employees and their personal attorneys should think very carefully about their own legal interests rather than being swept up in the obstruction schemes of the Trump Administration."

Republicans Warn Drug Companies Not To Cooperate With A Congressional Investigation
In an unusual move, House Republicans are warning drug companies against complying with a House investigation into drug prices.

Republicans on the House Oversight Committee sent letters to a dozen CEOs of major drug companies warning that information they provide to the committee could be leaked to the public by Democratic chair Elijah Cummings in an effort to tank their stock prices.

Press Advisory-The Coalition for Police Accountability Files Motion to Intervene in OPD Federal Oversight | Drake Talk Oakland
April 2, 2019

San Francsico, CA. Today Attorney Pamela Price representing members of the Coalition for Police Accountability, a broad based group representing Oakland’s diverse communities, filed a Motion to Intervene with federal Judge William H. Orrick in the class action case that arose out of the Riders’ scandal. That case resulted in the Negotiated Settlement Agreement [NSA] which was intended to be a process to reform the Oakland Police Department.

The NSA which was initiated in 2003, was to last no more than five years. Sixteen years and many police chiefs later, the Oakland Police Department still has not been able to comply with the tasks imposed by the court. The City has spent more than $29 million paying the court’s monitor and compliance director plus legal fees to plaintiffs lawyers. Despite this, OPD is backsliding on tasks to complete the agreement.

OPD’s execution style shooting of Joshua Pawlik, a sleeping homeless man, last spring and the resulting botched investigation and cover up by the police chief convinced members of the Coalition that another approach had to be taken to move the department forward. As a result, nine members of the group have joined in the Motion to Intervene at federal court.
