Tuesday's Mini-Report, 5.7.19

Today's edition of quick hits.

Today's edition of quick hits:

* Today's school shooting: "At least two people were injured and two suspects were in custody after a shooting was reported at a Colorado STEM school, officials said. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said they responded to the STEM School Highlands Ranch just before 2 p.m."

* The consequences of Trump's posturing: "The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended the day with a loss of 473 points as fears grew on Tuesday that the U.S. and China would not resolve their differences on trade."

* It's about time: "Two Pulitzer-winning Reuters journalists held in Myanmar for more than 500 days for their coverage of the crackdown on Rohingya Muslims were freed from jail Tuesday, ending a prolonged detention that has tainted Myanmar and its Nobel laureate civilian leader, Aung San Suu Kyi."

* Where has this been? "Video from the vantage point of Sandra Bland, the black woman found dead in a Texas jail cell in 2015 after she was arrested during a traffic stop, was made public Monday night."

* A story worth watching; "The leaders of the House Foreign Affairs and Financial Services Committees are accusing the Trump administration of violating a law requiring a report on human rights abuses in Russia."

* The details surrounding his crime are brutal: "President Donald Trump has pardoned a former U.S. soldier convicted in 2009 of killing an Iraqi prisoner, the White House announced Monday. Trump signed an executive grant of clemency, a full pardon, for former Army 1st Lt. Michael Behenna, of Oklahoma, press secretary Sarah Sanders said."

* Apparently, this is in reference to Jared Kushner's plan: "A group of Republican senators will hear details about the Trump administration's soon-to-be-released immigration plan at a White House meeting Tuesday."
