Source: Independent

There is no-one more qualified “in the world” to become the next US ambassador to the United Nations than Ivanka Trump, her father Donald has claimed.

Speaking to the media on the White House lawn, the US president described his second child as "dynamite".

BrettKavanaugh.com is Now a Resource for Sexual Assault Survivors

Source: Law & Crime

On Monday, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh promised to exercise his role on the nation’s high court with “no bitterness” following the brutal confirmation battle in which he was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.

The url BrettKavanaugh.com now directs users to several resources for sexual assault survivors.

A project of non-partisan judicial reform organization Fix The Court, the website’s splash page features a black-and-white image of the U.S. Supreme Court emblazoned with the phrase: “We Believe Survivors.”
