When It Comes to Marijuana, Not Even a County Sheriff Can Cross the Feds Sheriff's deputies arrested seven men running a large marijuana plantation today near Pyramid Lake in Ventura County. On public lands -- cleared, terraced and irrigated by tubes leading to a nearby creek — they found 130 pounds of drying marijuana. In Mendocino County, it's a different story. The Sheriff there is in a battle with federal agents of the Drug Enforcement Agency. They raided a marijuana farmer who had a Sheriff's permit and who was carefully complying with County Ordinance 931, designed to make it safe to grown medical marijuana under state law.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border?
