Exclusive: Trump Wants To Pick Cuccinelli For DHS, But Worries Senate Would Balk

Updated at 8:45 p.m. ET President Trump has told Republican allies in the Senate that he would like to nominate immigration hard-liner Ken Cuccinelli as his next Homeland Security secretary, but has said he does not believe Republican Senate leaders would back the choice, according to sources familiar with the discussions. Cuccinelli, the former attorney general of Virginia, has made enemies in his own party. He used to lead a group that raised money to challenge incumbent Republican senators, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Trump announced two weeks ago that Kevin McAleenan, who had been the acting secretary, would leave his post. That touched off a wave of jockeying for the position between competing factions inside the White House over who should lead the department charged with immigration policy, a key pillar of his presidency and re-election campaign. Sources say immigration hard-liners inside and outside the White House are fighting to keep Cuccinelli — who

Suspension Of Sheriff After High School Shootings Confirmed By Florida State Senate

Florida's Senate voted Wednesday to confirm the removal of Scott Israel from his position as sheriff of Broward County. In January, days after being sworn in, Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended Israel, charging him with incompetence and dereliction of duty for actions before and after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland last year. The governor said Israel was to blame for missed signals and systemic failures at the Broward Sheriff's Office that could have prevented or mitigated the shooting in which 17 people died and 17 more were injured. In particular, the governor cited the inaction of sheriff's deputy Scot Peterson , the school resource office on duty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who failed to respond to the gunshots and never entered the school that day. Under Florida's constitution, the governor can suspend elected officials, including sheriffs, but those suspensions must be confirmed by the state Senate. Florida's Senate President Bill

What Naomie Harris Had To Do To Be So 'Black And Blue'

The new movie Black and Blue is a thriller about a woman who tries to straddle a divide between two groups of people: African Americans and the police. The New Orleans police officer who tries to bridge these worlds is Alicia West, played by Naomie Harris. In the movie's opening scene, she's going for a run, wearing a hoodie, when cops stop her for questioning. It turns rough, but while they're searching her, they find her police badge. Black and Blue is an action movie, but it's also set with timely social context. "[Director] Deon [Taylor] says that this movie is candy with medicine in it," Harris says. This is a very American story — and yet Naomie Harris, who carries it, is British. In an interview, she described her preparation for the part, playing her first leading role and how she relates to the themes of police violence and mistrust. Interview Highlights On how issues around race and police violence translate from the U.S. to the U.K. I was definitely very aware that it is a
