A Manhattan judge issued a ruling on Thursday that thwarted the Trump campaign’s attempts to keep a lawsuit out of open court, with potential implications for the looming battle over fired Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman’s slow-motion revelations of her experiences in the Trump campaign and White House. The decision came in a lawsuit filed by Jessica Denson, a former campaign staffer who filed a complaint last November that alleged she was subjected to “harassment and sexual discrimination” while she worked on Trump’s White House bid in 2016. Lawyers for the Trump campaign tried to force the case into private arbitration based on an agreement signed by staffers that included nondisclosure and nondisparagement provisions.

The billionaire electric car maker, rocket launcher, tunnel digger and insulter of rescue divers sat down for an emotional interview with The New York Times, laying out recent trials and tribulations that led to a 6 percent stock-price drop on Friday for the car company Tesla, which he co-founded. “This past year has been the most difficult and painful year of my career,” Musk told the Times. Although Musk and Tesla have been dogged by production issues for months, often requiring him to sleep at his production facility, his problems ratcheted up last week when an ill-advised tweet triggered a federal investigation.
The California Supreme Court on Thursday made it easier for some immigrant children who are abused or abandoned by a parent to seek a U.S. visa to avoid deportation in a ruling that advocates said would help thousands of children. State judges cannot require that children drag an absentee parent living abroad into court in their visa application process, the justices said in a unanimous decision. Immigration rights advocates had warned that such a requirement would make it nearly impossible for the children to fight deportation.
China has sacked a senior provincial official and is probing a former top drug regulator after a safety scandal at vaccine maker Changsheng Biotechnology Co Ltd, which again warned it could be delisted over the scandal.

While there were no known reports of people being harmed by the vaccines, regulators ordered Changsheng to halt their production and recall the rabies vaccine.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee slammed Ryan Zinke’s record on the environment Thursday, saying the interior secretary would “sell his grandchildren for big oil,” the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported. The Democratic governor’s office told HuffPost that he hasn’t yet received any response to his comments from Zinke — or from the White House. A frustrated Inslee criticized Zinke during a visit to a Seattle elementary school, where he talked about protecting Washington’s environment, climate change, and the air pollution being triggered by ongoing wildfires, the Seattle newspaper reported.
In the wide-ranging interview, Musk acknowledged that his tweet last week about having "funding secured" to take Tesla private was not cleared by anyone else, including Tesla's board. The Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating the tweet, which bumped up Tesla's stock price, to determine whether it constitutes stock manipulation. Musk's admission that it was not vetted by board members may give ammunition to investigators, but it also points out the burden of running such a large, prominent public company, and the potential consequences of haste, pressure, and naivete from a CEO.

President Donald Trump’s comment calling former campaign chairman Paul Manafort a “very good person,” despite 18 criminal charges against him, was a “strategic” message to Manafort that he could be rewarded with a pardon if he keeps his mouth shut, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance said Friday on MSNBC. “I think the whole Manafort trial is very sad,” Trump told reporters before boarding Marine One on Friday. “He happens to be a very good person. Vance noted: “If you’re Paul Manafort and you hear about that — and we all know Paul Manafort’s heard about that — it’s difficult to read that as anything other than a message to Manafort: ‘Hold on, don’t cut a deal with the government while the jury is out.’” A deal would almost certainly involve cooperation in other investigations, possibly including the president.

The Times cited interviews with a dozen current and former White House staffers regarding interviews with McGahn spanning some 30 hours.

Putin - who made a toast in German at the wedding, according to the Kremlin - was pictured listening to her intently.
