Wednesday Top News Executive Summary

Mueller testimony, immigration updates, new press secretary, college regrets, and more.

  • MUELLER TO TESTIFY: “Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 17 after they subpoenaed the special counsel Tuesday,” Fox News reports. Sen. Lindsey Graham says it could “blow up in their face.”

  • CBP CHIEF RESIGNS: “John Sanders, the acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, will resign in the coming weeks as the public outcry over the treatment of detained migrants at the southern border continues to escalate. … Mark Morgan, acting director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs and Enforcement, will replace John Sanders as Border Patrol chief.” (National Review)

  • BORDER VETO? “The White House threatened late Monday to veto a $4.5 billion House bill that would provide emergency funding at the border over concerns that legislation in its current form lacks certain funding and includes provisions thrown in by Democratic lawmakers ‘that would make our country less safe.’” (Fox News)

  • UNPRECEDENTED DEBT: Reason reports, “The national debt will hit ‘unprecedented levels’ in the coming decades, soaring well above the record highs set during World War II and reaching nearly one-and-a-half times the size of the entire U.S. economy by 2049, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected in a report released Tuesday. And that’s the optimistic view.” Just imagine the projections if (or, God forbid, when) socialist Democrats get their way.

  • PRESS SECRETARY NAMED: “Stephanie Grisham, a top aide to first lady Melania Trump, was named Tuesday to replace Sarah Sanders as White House press secretary after a brief but competitive search for the president’s next spokesperson. Grisham, who developed a reputation as a fierce defender of the first lady during her tenure as spokeswoman, will also become the White House communications director.” (Fox News)

  • RUSSIA POKES THE BEAR: “Russia has dispatched several warships, including one of its newer missile frigates, to Cuba in a bid to bolster the floundering regime of Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro, according to a senior administration official.” (The Washington Free Beacon)

  • COLLEGE REGRETS — AND A WRONG PRESCRIPTION: “Two-thirds of employees report having regrets when it comes to their advanced degrees,” reports CBS News, adding, “Student loan debt … was the No. 1 regret among workers with college degrees.” On a related note, the Washington Examiner says, “The senior policy adviser for 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has a Ph.D. from Fordham University and $180,000 in student loan debt.” Sanders wants to enact a massive student-loan giveaway. Ben Shapiro writes, “College for all became the mantra; the government stepped into the breach; costs rose. Now government once more steps into the breach.”

  • VACCINE SUSPICION: “A new survey delving into feelings over immunizations finds the country may be more split on the issue than believed, with 45% of adults admitting to harboring some doubt about the safety of vaccines.” (StudyFinds)

  • COERCED ABORTION IN IRELAND: “Female pilots in Ireland are being told by their employers to ‘terminate’ their pregnancies or their employment.” (LifeSiteNews)

  • POLICY: New data show risk to Democrats of fully repealing Trump tax cuts (Washington Examiner)

  • POLICY: Busting the college-industrial complex (National Affairs)

  • HUMOR: Modern-day good Samaritan sees injured man on side of road, angrily tweets about Republicans (The Babylon Bee)
