AND THEN THERE WERE FOUR… The president on Monday spoke to four candidates to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court: Federal Appeals Court Judges Amy Coney Barrett of the Seventh Circuit; Brett Kavanaugh of the District of Columbia Circuit; and Raymond Kethledge and Amul Thapar of the Sixth Circuit. Trump said he would most likely meet with two or three other candidates before making his final decision which will be revealed on Monday, July 9th. SEPARATED KIDS UPDATETen Senators penned a letter to government agencies on Monday requesting a list of all migrant children separated from parents as a result of the Trump administration’s controversial “zero tolerance,” as well as an update on their individual situation. CUSTODY CONFUSION… Meanwhile, staffers at the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the division within HHS that oversees the care of unaccompanied children, have received no instructions on how to proceed to meet the court-ordered July 10th deadline. COME AT ME BRO… The White House on Monday targeted Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), two of Trump's potential 2020 rivals, over immigration in nearly matching tweets falsely accusing Harris of "supporting the animals of MS-13." The Senator quickly replied tweeting, “As a career prosecutor, I actually went after gangs and transnational criminal organizations. That's being a leader on public safety. What is not, is ripping babies from their mothers.” AMERICA FIRST, AMERICA ALONE... Ahead of next week’s NATO meeting in Brussels, Belgium, the president is again criticizing allies, including Canada, Germany, and Norway, for spending too little on their own defense and warning that the U.S. is losing patience with what he said is their failure to meet security obligations shared by the alliance. DUTCH PM TO TRUMP: NAH... Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte interrupted Trump during a White House photo-op on Monday as the president referred to upcoming discussions between the U.S. and EU around trade deals and tried to joke that if the discussions failed, it could be positive. Rutte quickly injected with the Coca-Cola theme: a “no" and a smile. WHY THEY CALL IT THE GREEN MOUNTAIN STATE... Vermont became the ninth state in the country to allow the recreational use of marijuana. Feel the burn. END ZONEThe NFL is trying to force Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case against the league to come to a close. The request puts the future of the case in the hands of arbitrator Stephen Burbank, who now must determine whether Kaepernick’s legal team has uncovered sufficient evidence to continue the quarterback’s action against the league. CATCH THE BEAT… on Monday! We’re dark for the July 4th holiday recess. So if you don’t see us in your inbox, don’t worry. I’M GOOD LUV, ENJOY. We’re leaving you, until next week, with this...

Catherine Cortez Masto Fights Unlawful Robocalls with More Penalties and Enforcement 
Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV)
on Thursday introduced a bill that will improve enforcement and enhance penalties for violations made under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The Deter Obnoxious, Nefarious, and Outrageous Telephone Calls Act, or the DO NOT Call Act of 2018, would create a penalty specific to violations of the TCPA that can include up to one year in prison. Initiating a robocall without the consent of an individual is outlawed under the TCPA, which permits the FCC to issue fines and victims to pursue civil action in court. However, violators have set up shell companies designed to evade fines and technology has made it easier to make robocalls. “Billions of illegal robocalls are initiated every year, amounting to billions of dollars lost on telephone scams targeting the elderly,” said Cortez Masto. “Stricter penalties and better enforcement are needed to protect Americans from being defrauded by bad actors who are knowingly violating the law.” More here.

Cory Booker and Bob Menéndez Team Up to Fund 9/11 Memorials Support
New Jersey Democratic Senators Bob Menéndez and Cory Booker want to create a federal grant program to help support the memorials dedicated to commemorating the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S. Together with their NY counterparts, Democratic Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer, the lawmakers introduced the September 11th National Memorials Act to create a funding stream to support the security, maintenance, and successful operations of The World Trade Center site, the United 93 Memorial, and the Pentagon Memorial. The bill would authorize up to $25 million in annual funding to ensure the security, maintenance, and successful operations and educational programs at the memorials; support free admission for active and retired members of the military and 9/11 first responders, as well as family members of victims of the attacks of 9/11; and require grant recipients to provide to the Department of Interior and the public comprehensive financial disclosure information. “As we remember those who perished on that dreadful day, we must back up our pledge to never forget with real action in support of the memorials erected in their honor,” said Menéndez. “I’m proud to join Senator Booker to introduce legislation that will help keep our 9/11 memorials running smoothly and securely for every American who wishes to honor the memories of the mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, friends and neighbors we lost that day.” Booker added, “These memorial sites are the sacred ground where Americans come to remember, reflect, and pay their respects. We must never forget the horror of that terrible day, the lives that were lost, and the people whose lives were forever changed. That’s why it’s incumbent on us to keep these sites secure and accessible to all Americans for generations to come.” More here.
Raja Krishnamoorthi Wants to Know If Scott Pruitt Used EPA Resources to Retaliate Against Current and Former Staff
Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL)
wants Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to convene hearings on reports that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt reportedly used agency resources to attack current and former aides. Krishnamoorthi’s letter concerns a June 28th article by the Daily Beast which reported that Pruitt “actively undermined the reputations of former and current staffers, with campaigns that former senior EPA officials have described as ‘ratf*cking’.” In his letter, the Congressman writes, “When longtime aide Millan Hupp gave truthful evidence before a Congressional committee, as she was legally required to do, she was forced out of the EPA. Even after she left, reports state that Mr. Pruitt continued to damage her career by warning potential employers away from hiring her. ... I urge you to convene hearings to reveal the full extent of this Administration’s use of official resources and executive power to defame and retaliate against whistleblowers and others who reveal ongoing ethics violations in the Trump Administration.” More here.

Meet the New Acting Head of the DEA
Attorney General Jeff Sessions 
on Monday announced the appointment of Uttam Dhillon as Acting Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration. The Indian American lawyer was most recently Deputy Counsel and Deputy Assistant to Donald Trump. Prior to his Trump administration service, Dhillon was Chief Oversight Counsel for the House Financial Services Committee under Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX). Dhillon has held a number of senior positions previously including as a partner with Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl in Dallas, serving as the first-ever Director of the Office of Counternarcotics Enforcement at the Department of Homeland Security, and as an Associate Deputy AG at the DOJ. He was the Majority Chief Counsel and Deputy Staff Director of the House Select Committee on Homeland Security in 2003 and Senior Investigative Counsel for the Government Reform and Oversight Committee in the late 1990s. From 1990 to 1997, he was the Assistant United States Attorney in the Central District of California. Dhillon received his Bachelor’s from California State University, Sacramento; Master’s from the University of California, San Diego; and a law degree from Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley. He is also certified to fly single-engine aircraft and small unmanned aircraft. He made headlines earlier this year after an NYT report claimed he misled and withheld information from Donald Trump about whether he could fire former FBI Director James Comey. Dhillon feared that firing Comey would put the presidency in danger, and he reportedly told Trump he needed “cause” to fire the FBI Director, which was not true. More here.

First Black Officer to Command West Point
Lt. Gen. Darryl A. Williams
 has become the first Black officer to command West Point in its 216-year history. He has held high-ranking Army posts in Europe and Asia, and he assumed command as the Academy’s 60th Superintendent during a ceremony Monday morning in West Point’s Jefferson Hall. The 1983 U.S. Military Academy graduate earned Master's degrees in leadership development, military art and science, and national security and strategic studies. The native of Alexandria, VA has served as the Deputy Chief of Staff for the U.S. Army in Europe and the Deputy Commanding General for support for the 2nd Infantry Division in South Korea. He also held a role as commander of the United States Army Africa in Italy. During that time, President Barack Obama announced that he would establish a command center in Liberia and assigned Williams to lead the U.S. response to the Ebola crisis. Most recently, Williams was commander of NATO’s Allied Land Command, based in Turkey. Williams’ appointment comes less than a year after Simone Askew -- an African American cadet and Rhodes Scholar -- was selected to take the top position in West Point’s cadet chain of command. The Academy recently announced that the more than 1,200-member incoming class of 2020 includes 186 African Americans. More here.
Senate Confirms Interior Department's Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs
Tara Sweeney

She was confirmed by the Senate last week. The Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs oversees Interior’s various responsibilities to enhance the quality of life, promote economic opportunity, and provide quality educational opportunities for American Indians, Indian tribes, and Alaska Natives while protecting and improving their trust assets.

DNC Launches Black Women Outreach Tour
The DNC has launched a new initiative called the Seat At The Table Tour -- a Black women outreach tour designed to "rebuild relationships, restore trust, and strengthen infrastructure within communities to champion Democratic values and build towards electoral victories." The tour is being done in collaboration with the Congressional Black Caucus and Black women Mayors, and will consist of listening and training sessions for Black women. "This is the Democratic Party’s opportunity to show that we want more than just Black Women’s votes. We also need and want Black Women’s input, ideas, and organizing power," Waikinya Clanton, the DNC's Director of African American Outreach. "We want to hear from Black Women across this country about what keeps them up at night and what we can do to help fix it. Whether it’s training candidates on how to address certain issues, training organizers on how to advocate on issues locally or connecting Black women Democrat. We want to connect and work with Black women to help move this country forward in a real and meaningful way." The tour kicked off June 16th in Brooklyn with an event honoring the late Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm -- the first Black woman elected to Congress. More here.

Could Kerri Evelyn Harris Bring the Next Major Upset?
Following Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s victory against incumbent Congressman Joe Crowley in NY’s primary, establishment challengers are getting more and more attention. One of those candidates is Kerri Evelyn Harris, who is taking on Senator Tom Carper in Delaware’s Democratic primary. The 38-year-old biracial lesbian civil rights activist and veteran is challenging Carper from the left, on a platform that includes calls to abolish ICE, single-payer healthcare, and racial and economic justice. She currently serves as the Program Director for the Achievement Matters program at the Metropolitan Wilmington Urban League, which helps reduce the achievement gap for middle-school students. She is also pursuing a Bachelor's in nonprofit management from Wilmington University. The mother of one joined the Air Force after 9/11 and, following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, she did double duty by volunteering with Habitat for Humanity rebuilding houses along the Gulf Coast at night. After serving for eight years in the military, Harris retired in 2008 because of medical complications from an anthrax vaccine. She retired in the midst of the Great Recession, and her post-military career résumé includes lawn mower, fried chicken cook, acupuncturist, auto body mechanic, and manager of a leadership program for former gang members. “The average person in Delaware looks like me,” she says. “I know those struggles. I’ve lived those struggles, even now running the campaign. I drive a beater 1999 Volkswagen, and I could fix the car but I don’t have time to fix the car. I know what everybody’s going through, and I’m going through it with them as I’m running the campaign. I am with them. It’s a humbling experience, to say the least.” Harris co-founded the Delaware Civil Rights Coalition -- a group of a dozen civil rights and religious organizations which works to combat broad attacks on women, Muslims, African Americans, and the LGBTQ community -- on the eve of Donald Trump's inauguration.
