DOJ declines to prosecute Comey despite finding that he leaked info

DOJ declines to prosecute Comey despite finding that he leaked infoThe U.S. Justice Department has decided not to prosecute former FBI Director James Comey despite an internal investigation that found he improperly leaked information to the news media, the department’s internal watchdog said on Thursday. The Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General said Comey asked a friend to share the contents of a memo with the New York Times to pressure the department to launch an independent investigation into his conversations with President Donald Trump. In the memo, Comey described a meeting in which Trump allegedly asked him to drop the FBI’s investigation into Michael Flynn, who at the time was his national security adviser.

Tlaib declines to visit West Bank, citing Israeli conditions

Tlaib declines to visit West Bank, citing Israeli conditionsDemocratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib said Friday she would not visit her grandmother in the occupied West Bank, despite being granted an Israeli permit on humanitarian grounds, saying Israel’s “oppressive” conditions aimed to humiliate her. Israel barred Tlaib and another Democrat, Rep. Ilhan Omar, from visiting Jerusalem and the West Bank over their support for the international boycott movement following an unprecedented appeal from President Donald Trump to deny them entry. Israel had said Tlaib could visit relatives in the West Bank on humanitarian grounds.

Supreme Court declines Alabama bid to revive abortion restriction

Supreme Court declines Alabama bid to revive abortion restrictionThe U.S. Supreme Court on Friday sidestepped a major new challenge to abortion rights by declining to hear Alabama’s bid to revive a Republican-backed state law that would have effectively banned the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The justices left in place a lower court ruling that struck down the 2016 law, which would have criminalized a method called dilation and evacuation that is the most common type of abortion performed during the second trimester of a pregnancy. The law in question is different than an even more strict Alabama measure signed by Republican Governor Kay Ivey in May. The new law, also facing a legal challenge, would ban nearly all abortions in the state, even in cases of rape and incest.

US Supreme Court declines to change double jeopardy rule

US Supreme Court declines to change double jeopardy ruleThe US Supreme Court on Monday upheld a longstanding rule stating that prosecuting someone separately in state and then federal court for the same crime does not violate a defendant’s protection against double jeopardy. Americans have long understood that they have a right against being tried twice for the same crime, but since the mid-19th century that protection has only applied within the same sovereign legal system, such as a state court or federal court. The nine justices ruled in the case of Terance Gamble, who as a man convicted of robbery in Alabama in 2008 lost his right to own a gun.
