Ash writes: "The testimony of former acting attorney general Sally Yates had long been sought by Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee and delayed by their Republican counterparts. It now appears the Senate Intelligence Committee will instead be the first to hear testimony from Yates." 
EPA Cuts Half of Advisers on Key Panel 
Juliet Eilperin and Brady Dennis, The Washington Post 
Excerpt: "Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has chosen to replace half of the members on one of its key scientific review boards, the first step in a broader effort by Republicans to change the way the agency evaluates the scientific basis for its regulations." 
Liberals Should Still Be Worried About France 
Heather Hurlburt, New York Magazine 
Hurlburt writes: "Americans wrote their French friends lots of open letters in recent weeks, imploring them not to 'make the same mistakes we did.' Perhaps Americans ought to write one more, thinking of 2009: Don't assume, because the candidate of wide smiles and new ideas has triumphed, that old fears and resentments - and older power structures - are gone for good."

Paul J. Weber, Associated Press 
Weber writes: "Texas pushed to the forefront of national debate over immigration Sunday night when Republican Gov. Greg Abbott signed a so-called 'sanctuary cities' ban that lets police ask during routine stops whether someone is in the U.S. legally and threatens sheriffs with jail if they don't cooperate with federal immigration agents."

Zack Ford, ThinkProgress 
Ford writes: "As of Thursday afternoon, there were 41 documented cases of measles in Minnesota, 40 of which were in children, 39 of which were in people who had not been vaccinated, and 34 of which were in people of Somali descent. It's no coincidence that anti-vaxxers have targeted Minnesota's Somali community for the past 15 years with their propaganda, convincing them to cut vaccination rates from 92 percent in 2004 to 42 percent in 2014." 
Chicago Mayor Recoups Climate Change Data Deleted From EPA Website 
Cassie Kelly, EcoWatch 
Kelly writes: "This weekend, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel posted the scrubbed data on the City of Chicago's official website to preserve the 'decades of research [the agency] has done to advance the fight against climate change.' Emanuel said he plans to develop the site further in the coming weeks."
