Customs and Border Protection Violated Law, January 19, 2018

It is NOT NORMAL for Customs and Border Protection officers to violate court orders when implementing the administration’s travel ban last year, as confirmed by a report by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General released last week. CBP officers deported foreign nationals even after court orders blocked such deportations and called airlines to tell them not to allow some travelers to board planes to the United States even when being explicitly instructed by a judge to do exactly the opposite.

Trump Urged Senate Republicans to End Investigation, December 1, 2017

It is NOT NORMAL for the president to push senior Senate Republicans to end their investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. This investigation involves the president’s staff and his family members, and it is inappropriate for the president to involve himself.
