The Implications of Cloned Embryonic Stem Cells Human embryonic stem cells can now be created in the laboratory — and they, in turn, can be transformed into any kind of cell in the body. That means truly exciting prospects for treating disease, as well as both legal and ethical issues creating embryos that will then be destroyed or the possibility of cloning a human being. Hank Greely is director of Stanford Universty's Center for Law and the Biosciences.
Trump fires FBI Director James Comey Vice President Mike Pence took the Administration's lead today in explaining why the President fired the Head of the FBI, saying, "The president made the right decision at the right time."

What do we know about those contacts… and how they relate to Trump's business interests and those of his family?
