Hillary Clinton repeatedly tweaks Trump during a college commencement address
Hillary Clinton delivered the commencement address at her alma mater, Wellesley College, Friday, 48 years after she was the school?s first-ever student commencement speaker when she graduated in 1969. In one of her most high-profile appearances since losing the presidential election, Clinton doled out biting criticism of President Trump?s tumultuous administration, albeit without mentioning him by name. Pointedly, she referenced the political climate at the time of her 1969 speech, when ?we were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would end with disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice, after he fired the man running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice.? This reference to Richard Nixon?s Watergate scandal was an apparent connection to Trump, who sparked a firestorm by suddenly firing James Comey as FBI director earlier this month (although Nixon resigned before he was actually impeached).

US weighs banning laptop computers on international flights
Kelly made his remarks during the Memorial Day weekend, one of the busiest travel periods in the United States, at a time when the bombing at a concert in Manchester, England has raised concerns that further attacks -- possibly involving explosives packed in electronic devices -- may be planned. "There's a real threat -- numerous threats against aviation," Kelly told the Fox News Sunday program when asked about the likelihood a wide-reaching ban on large electronics in airplane cabins could be imposed. Terrorists are "obsessed" with the idea of "knocking down an airplane in flight -- particularly a US carrier, if it's full of mostly US folks," the homeland security chief said.

UK lowers attack threat level as police close in on bomber's network
By Michael Holden LONDON (Reuters) - British intelligence experts no longer believe another attack is imminent as significant progress has been made by police investigating the suicide bomb attack on a pop concert in Manchester, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Saturday. Police hunting a suspected network behind Salman Abedi, the bomber who killed 22 people on Monday night, said they had made two further arrests overnight and that they had a greater understanding of how his device was made. May said this meant the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC), the independent body which sets the threat level, had decided it should be lowered from its highest rating "critical", which meant an attack could be imminent, to "severe".

Republicans must not tolerate the violence of Greg Gianforte | Lucia Graves
When the congressman-elect assaulted a journalist, the Republican party?s response left much to be desired. Republican Greg Gianforte won a special congressional election in Montana Thursday, the day after assaulting a reporter.

The Republican party still has the opportunity to say as much.
