Wednesday's Mini-Report, 7.20.16

07/20/16 05:30PM

Today's edition of quick hits:
* The crackdown continues: "Turkey issued a ban on professional travel for all academics and opened top-to-bottom investigations into military courts Wednesday as security chiefs planned the next steps in sweeping crackdowns after last week's failed coup attempt."
* It'd be a fairly small infraction, and hardly the biggest scandal involving the Trump campaign, but it looks like Team Trump "used corporate resources to write a political speech," which was probably illegal.
* Christie knows a little something about abuses of power: "The White House on Wednesday took a jab at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) for floating a proposal to fire government employees appointed by President Obama if Donald Trump wins the presidency in November."
* He was just 49 years old: "Hawaii Democratic Rep. Mark Takai died Wednesday after battling pancreatic cancer, his office confirmed. In May, he announced he would not seek re-election because his cancer had spread. He first received the diagnosis in October 2015."
* A welcome sentiment: "Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) on Wednesday questioned the wisdom of the Republican National Convention's focus on calling for prison for Hillary Clinton. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee 'now belongs in prison? C'mon. We can make the case that she shouldn't be elected without jumping the shark,' Flake tweeted."
