  • Trump appoints family wedding planner to oversee housing in New York:  “She’s arranged tournaments at Trump golf courses, served as the liaison to the Trump family during his presidential campaign, and even arranged Eric Trump’s wedding. Now Trump has appointed longtime loyalist Lynne Patton — who has zero housing experience and claims a law degree the school says she never earned — to run the office that oversees federal housing programs in New York. Patton was appointed Wednesday to head up the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Region II, which includes New York and New Jersey, where she’ll oversee distribution of billions of taxpayer dollars.”    NY Daily News

  • Senate GOP’s health care bill is so secret not even Trump’s health secretary has seen it:    “No one seems to know what’s in the Senate’s Trumpcare bill. Not even Trump’s top health care adviser. At a Thursday hearing, Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) asked Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, ‘Have you or anyone in your department seen what the Senate Republicans are working on in terms of their version of Trumpcare?’ Price began his response with a caveat that he has talked to senators who care about health care, but followed it up with the stunning admission that he had not yet seen any part of the bill.”    ThinkProgress

  • ‘No Flash’ Mueller Isn’t In It for Party Favors:  “Bob is not really a fun guy.“ If you were Donald Trump, you might worry if those words described someone who’s investigating you. As it turns out, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has that rep: When he hosts a Friday soirée, it’s lights-out at 10:05 p.m. Reports indicate that Mueller, said to be apolitical, is probing Trump’s possible obstruction of justice. Assuming he isn’t summarily fired, the ex-FBI chief and his team are expected to adopt a hard-nosed strategy and follow the evidence wherever it leads.    Vanity Fair
