📌 Michael Cohen’s was not the only hearing of importance last week.
The House Judiciary Committee held hearings last Tuesday on Trump’s “family separation” policy. Scott Lloyd, once head of the Office of Refugee Resettlement and now a senior advisor at Health and Human Services, admitted that he had not shared concerns voiced by colleagues, including warnings from child welfare experts about the traumatic effects of these separations, with his superiors.
