Wednesday 21:56 GMT

Two different federal judges this week blocked President Trump from enforcing the latest version of his travel ban, which would have barred various travelers and immigrants from eight different countries from entering the U.S..

The administration says the latest iteration, Trump's third attempt at a travel ban, was inked only after an extensive process in which U.S. officials determined a baseline of information needed to vet travelers from other countries, then negotiated with foreign counterparts to make sure they were getting it.

Wednesday 21:00 GMT

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon continued taking aim at the Republican Party establishment Tuesday – this time in Arizona, where he campaigned for U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward.

Bannon’s appearance in Arizona seemed to deviate from a game plan that Trump appeared to advocate Monday, when he said he would try to discourage Bannon from going after Senate Republicans. "Some of the people that he may be looking at, I'm going to see if we talk him out of that, because frankly, they're great people," Trump said during a joint news conference with McConnell.

Ref Rodriguez needs to explain himself — or get off the board

Wednesday 21:55 GMT

Ref Rodriguez, who was the president of the Los Angeles Unified school board, was charged last month with three felonies.

Rodriguez allegedly withdrew $285,000 in 2014 from accounts of the charter group Partnership to Uplift Communities, in amounts small enough not to trigger oversight by the group’s board. Most of that money, the group claims, went to a separate nonprofit organization controlled directly by Rodriguez, with little or no accounting of how the money was being used to benefit the schools.
