Larry Hogan did say in a tweet the officer was shot. “We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of a Baltimore County police officer after she was shot in the the line of duty,” Hogan said on Twitter. “Our prayers got out to this brave officer’s family, Baltimore County police and fire and the Baltimore County community,” he said.  Baltimore County Councilman David Marks wrote in a Twitter post that the officer was shot in Perry Hall, near Belair and Lausmier roads. Police had warned residents to shelter in place as a manhunt got underway Monday afternoon. 

Police: Dead body found in abandoned car in Michigan

Police: Dead body found in abandoned car in Michigan

Police in Battle Creek, Michigan, are investigating what they say is a homicide after a man’s body was found in the trunk of a car. The Battle Creek Enquirer reported Monday that the body of Diabulo White, 43, was found in the trunk of a four-door Toyota Camry, that was being towed by Tiger's Towing. >> Read more trending news  Battle Creek police Lt. James Martens said the towing company towed the car after police said the car was on private property. The homeowner said the car was left on the property sometime during the night. A body was found by the female owner of the car once she was contacted by Tiger’s and arrived at the towing company’s lot. She opened the trunk of her car, which was locked, and found the body. Detective Sgt. Todd Elliott said police think White was killed by a gunshot wound to the head, but not in the car or where the car was located. “We believe the intent was to hide the body and cover the crime,” Elliott said. The car was moved to the police department. The death is still being investigated.

White House agrees to review of DOJ actions in 2016 campaign

White House agrees to review of DOJ actions in 2016 campaign

A day after President Donald Trump demanded an investigation into how the FBI dealt with investigations during the 2016 campaign, the White House accepted a plan from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to expand an ongoing review of the probe into Russian interference in the elections, and how it touched on the Trump Campaign. “Based on the meeting with the President, the Department of Justice has asked the Inspector General to expand its current investigation to include any irregularities with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s or the Department of Justice’s tactics concerning the Trump Campaign,” read a statement issued by the White House. “It was also agreed that White House Chief of Staff Kelly will immediately set up a meeting with the FBI, DOJ, and DNI together with Congressional Leaders to review highly classified and other information they have requested,” the statement added, referring to an ongoing battle between Republicans in Congress and the feds for documents about the Russia probe. The outcome of the meeting between Mr. Trump, the Deputy Attorney General, the FBI Director, and the Director of National Intelligence – which was not listed on the President’s public schedule – was less explosive than what President Trump had seemingly threatened on Sunday, when he said he would demand a full investigation into whether the feds had “infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes.” Mr. Trump and Congressional Republicans have been playing up the issue in recent days, arguing that initial FBI efforts to find out what Russia was doing with relation to the Trump Campaign, was actually an effort to undermine Mr. Trump’s bid for the White House. But Democrats say what’s going on now is an effort by Mr. Trump and his allies in the Congress to undermine the current investigation, by allowing the President’s lawyers to see what evidence the Special Counsel’s office – and maybe U.S. Intelligence – had been able to gather during the 2016 campaign. Giuliani removes all doubt – the White House effort to force DOJ to give investigatory materials to Congress is really about the defense team getting their hands on them. If the President is charged with a crime, he has a right to see the evidence. Not before. https://t.co/HfzzdZ894d — Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) May 21, 2018 The Monday meeting at the White House came as Republicans stepped up demands for documents about the investigation, as Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), asked the Justice Department for information on contacts between officials and former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, who put together a controversial ‘dossier’ on the President, funded by Democratic sources. In a letter to Rosenstein, Grassley zeroed in Monday on Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, and his contacts with Steele. “Accordingly, please provide all records related to Mr. Ohr’s communications about these matters, including: (1) emails from Mr. Ohr’s personal and work accounts, (2) phone logs, (3) handwritten notes, and (4) text messages from personal and work accounts,” Grassley wrote in a letter.
