1. Just yesterday, President Trump and the White House fired FBI director James Comey, reportedly in order to restore the "public trust and confidence" after the past several months. "The FBI is one of our nation's most cherished and respected institutions, and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement," Trump explained.

In March, Comey announced an investigation on the alleged connection between Russia and Trump's campaign. The White House is now on the search for a new FBI director to begin immediately. (Refinery29)
