Fish and Game Commissioner Criticized for Killing Mountain Lion Forty Democrats in the state Assembly have called for the President of California's Fish and Game Commission to resign. Daniel Richards has circulated pictures of himself with a dead mountain lion he killed on a hunting trip in Idaho. But in 1990, California voters made that illegal in California. Pictures of Richards and the dead cougar have gone viral and, in response to the calls for him to resign, the National Rifle Association put out a nationwide alert. Dozens of hunters and gun-rights advocates showed up yesterday at a Fish and Game Commission meeting in Riverside.

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." Trump's action is being compared to the so-called "Saturday Night Massacre" that led to President Richard Nixon's resignation in 1973.
