    The Chicago Daily Herald ^ | March 22, 2018 | Marni Pyke
    Officials and visitors assembled for an Illinois tollway board meeting Thursday morning were out in record time. That wasn't because of a light agenda. Rather, the absence of board directors meant the agency didn't have enough for a quorum. Six directors are required, and only four were there at 9 a.m. when the meeting was supposed to start. Board members present were Chairman Robert Schillerstrom, the Rev. Corey Brooks of Chicago, David Gonzalez, the mayor of Chicago Heights, and Craig Johnson, Elk Grove Village mayor. Director Earl Dotson arrived shortly after the meeting was canceled. The board has been short...

    The meeting between the two was a part of the former US President's tour around the globe, though it went largely unnoticed by the media. Former US President Barack Obama met with Chinese President Xi Jinping merely weeks after Obama's successor as the American leader, Donald Trump, visited China. Obama and Xi were photographed smiling and drinking tea at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing and were quickly dubbed as "veteran cadres," the term generally used to refer to retired Chinese Communist Party officials.

    OAKLAND — The Maryland Department of Transportation is taking another look at the Oakland bypass project. Deputy Transportation Secretary Jim Ports made the announcement during MDOT’s annual meeting with local residents and officials last Friday morning at the courthouse. Every year, MDOT officials present a draft of their six-year Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP) during a tour of Maryland’s 23 counties and Baltimore City. “We have decided to reignite the decision for the Oakland bypass,” Ports told local residents last week. “We’re going to look at a practical-design approach to try and save money.” He said the decision was made after...

    When Patricia Nazzal videotaped a congressional motorcade passing her car on Interstate 70, she ended up documenting a fatal crash just ahead of her.

Police had not released the identity of the person who died as of late Wednesday night.

    No dirt on Clinton, a passing mention of adoptions, and a lot on Bill Browder and the Magnitsky Act. Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya arrived at a June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr. armed with a set of talking points arguing American officials were hoodwinked into slapping human rights sanctions on Russia in 2012 and that efforts to expand those measures would hurt relations between Washington and Moscow. According to her talking points, obtained by Foreign Policy, Veselnitskaya made the case that the American businessman Bill Browder perpetrated a massive scheme of tax fraud against the Russian state and then...

    Documents Show DOJ Was in Panic Mode After Loretta Lynch's Secret Meeting With Bill Clinton Was Exposed When former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and President Bill Clinton were busted secretly meeting aboard Lynch's private plane last summer by a local television reporter, a number of government watchdog groups filed lawsuits for documents surrounding the meeting. After all the FBI, under the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice, was actively investigating Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information at the time. In response to information requests, the FBI and DOJ said documents didn't exist. Fast forward more than a...

    The Russian lawyer who met last June with Donald Trump Jr. and other members of the Trump campaign says she’s willing to testify before Congress to “clarify” the circumstances of the meeting. In an interview with RT, Russia’s state-owned news outlet, Natalia Veselnitskaya, the attorney, accused a London-based financier named Bill Browder of being behind the “mass hysteria” surrounding the June 9, 2016 meeting. Veselnitskaya claims that she attended the meeting in order to lobby the Trump campaign against the Magnitsky Act, a 2012 sanctions law championed by Browder. But the meeting was set up after Donald Trump Jr. was...

    Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz defended President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., for meeting with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya to do opposition research. According to Dershowitz, there is nothing wrong with a candidate getting information on his opponent from any type of source. “If it were to be prosecuted, the First Amendment would trump. A candidate has the right to get information from whatever source the information comes,” he argued.

    Election-law experts say it is far from clear whether Donald Trump Jr.’s 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer crossed a legal line. President Trump’s eldest son arranged a meeting in June of last year between top campaign aides and a Russian lawyer who has been linked to the Kremlin, after being told she “might have information helpful to the campaign..." Federal election law prohibits foreign nationals or foreign governments from contributing or donating money or “anything of value” to a political campaign. It also makes it a felony for a campaign or members of a campaign to knowingly and...

    U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday praised his son, Donald Trump Jr., after he released the “entire email chain” of the conversations in which he set up a meeting with a Russian attorney shortly after his father had won the Republican nomination. “My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency,” Trump said in a brief statement, which White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders read to reporters during an off-camera briefing and was quoted by The Hill. Sanders acknowledged that, “the president is, I would say, frustrated with the process of the fact that this continues to be...

    It smelled like North Korea. Yesterday, at the “cabinet meeting,” as some of the most powerful people on earth went around the table competing to see who could kiss their boss’s ass the most lavishly. It smelled like those propaganda videos that come out of North Korea, where insane smiles and frenetic clapping break out every time the nut job with the hairdo has a bowel movement. By the time the meeting at the White House got to the chief of staff talking about being “blessed,” it had taken on the air of worship. It was a gimme to the...
