President Trump is trying to hold back opposition to his executive orders. A federal judge in Hawaii has extended a ruling halting President Trump’s travel ban on people from six Muslim majority nations. And the city of Seattle is fighting to stop a plan to pull federal funds from so-called sanctuary cities. Meanwhile, the Senate Intelligence Committee is expanding its investigation into ties between the White House and the Kremlin amid calls for House Intelligence chairman Devin Nunes to step down. President Trump has tried to steer the investigation towards claims that President Obama ordered the wiretapping of the trump campaign. The Senate Intelligence Committee will hold a hearing on the Russian investigation today.
