House Russia probe in chaos over news Trump found in foreign surveillance reports

Two days after the directors of the FBI and the National Security Agency publicly repudiated Trump’s tweeted allegations about being wiretapped at Trump Tower by the Obama administration, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes tried Wednesday to revive those allegations with confusing revelations that Trump and his advisers turned up intelligence reports derived from court-ordered foreign surveillance. Democrats immediately cried foul, saying Nunes had shown himself unqualified to run an objective investigation by going public with the information before he’d shared it with other members of the committee.

The fight for Bears Ears National Monument in southeast Utah

In late 2016, then-President Obama designated a 1.35 million acre swath of forest and red rock canyons in southeast Utah as the Bears Ears National Monument. According to a White House statement, the monument was established “to protect some of our country’s most important cultural treasures, including abundant rock art, archaeological sites, and lands considered sacred by Native American tribes.” It was a victory for local tribes and conservationists, but some Utah residents are wary of what they see as government overreach and are encouraging their state officials call on the Trump administration to rescind the monument status.
