Russia Cloud Settles In Over Trump’s White House:

The Russia “cloud” is growing over President Donald Trump and threatening to wreck another week for the embattled White House as one of his closest allies tries to avoid a public spectacle on Capitol Hill.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement that he would testify before Senate Russia investigators caught everyone — including the intelligence committee — by surprise. Now, before he even testifies, the focus is both on Sessions and whether or not he would appear before the TV cameras like former FBI Director James Comey did last week, when 19.5 million Americans watched.

Melania Trump Moves In:

With a single tweet on Sunday evening, Melania Trump made it official: the White House is no longer operating with a first lady in absentia. FLOTUS has moved in.

“Looking forward to the memories we’ll make in our new home! #Movingday,” read the tweet, which featured a picture from inside the Executive Residence, past the Truman Balcony, overlooking the South Lawn. On what appeared to be a set dining room table, two tall, tapered candles in silver holders were lit.

‘Wonder Woman’ Soars In Its Second Weekend As ‘The Mummy’ Staggers:

Wonder Woman” is still wonderful at the box office, but Tom Cruise and “The Mummy” are staggering.

“Wonder Woman,” the acclaimed Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment superhero film, brought in an estimated $57.2 million at the North American box office this weekend. That’s only a drop of 45% from its strong and record-breaking opening weekend last week.

The second week total for the film shows that “Wonder Woman” has a steady audience. Its second week drop was much smaller than previous films in the DC Extended Universe.

The three other films in the Warner Bros. and DC brand — 2013’s “Man of Steel,” 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and 2016’s “Suicide Squad” — all had big openings, but were largely panned by critics and audiences.

Winning Powerball Ticket Sold In California:

Jackpot! A lucky lotto player in California had all the winning numbers after Saturday’s Powerball drawing, lottery officials said.

The grand prize reached an estimated $447.8 million.

The winning ticket was sold at a store in Menifee, southeast of Los Angeles.

Matthew Alberre, the manager of family-owned Marietta Liquor, told KCAL/KCBS he couldn’t believe the news when he got a call from a lottery representative on Saturday night. But it’s still unclear who bought the ticket from his store.

The winning numbers were 20, 26, 32, 38, 58 and the Powerball was 3.

Ivanka Trump Back In The Spotlight For Workforce Development Week:

After maintaining a relatively low profile over the last month, Ivanka Trump is stepping back in the spotlight forcefully next week for a White House focus on workforce development.

The first daughter and presidential adviser will join her father at a series of events from Tuesday to Thursday to highlight administration initiatives on vocational training and apprenticeships as well as legislative priorities like college affordability.
The White House’s “workforce development week” follows a thematic focus this past week on infrastructure — an effort largely overshadowed by President Donald Trump’s tweets Sunday on the terrorist attacks in London and former FBI director James Comey’s bombshell testimony Thursday on Capitol Hill about his interactions with Trump and the investigation into campaign aides’ contacts with Russian officials.
