On Thursday, Attorney General William Barr released the Mueller Report. In a press conference, he explained that the report highlights 10 episodes that could be construed as obstruction of justice, although his investigation found no underlying conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russian government to affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. The Daily Signal’s Fred Lucas provides the details here.

Earlier this week, Barr announced a new asylum policy to curb the government’s practice of catching illegal immigrants and then releasing them into the nation’s interior. The decision was immediately denounced by the American Civil Liberties Union, which vowed to challenge the Trump Administration in court. Find out more here.

Marijuana use is soaring, and proponents of legalization claim that it is a safe drug that can treat diseases. But new evidence shows that marijuana use can be deeply harmful to mental health.

On Thursday, Heritage’s Senior Legal Research Fellow Paul Larkin hosted a conversation with award-winning author and former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson. In his new book, Tell Your Children: The Truth About Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence, Berenson warns that advocates for cannabis legalization have misled America about the reality of marijuana.

Heritage’s 2019 Spring Interns concluded their program today. Here is what they had to say about their experience at Heritage:

“I loved absolutely everything about my internship! Instead of running around fetching dry cleaning and coffee, I spent my internship working on important projects that gave me real work experience. I also had so many opportunities to learn from policy experts, authors, and government officials, who taught me much about conservatism, American principles, and how to be a good person in a world that tries to turn you into the opposite… During my four months at The Heritage Foundation, I have discovered who I am, what I stand for, and how to go forward to fight the good fight.”

– Samantha Michon, Kuchta Family Intern

“This internship has been enlightening, fulfilling, and, overall, wonderful. It’s an experience that forever will be engraved in my memory.”

– Miguel Pontifis, Caesar Arredondo Intern

“Between speaking with Heritage members, co-workers, and important conservative leaders in my day to day work, I’ve garnered a strong network going forward.”

– Dwayne Clark, Sidney A. Swensrud Foundation Intern

In an op-ed published by the Washington Post, Heritage President Kay C. James said, “I was deeply disappointed to see such a promising idea abandoned, but the episode was about much more than just one company’s response to intolerance from the self-appointed guardians of tolerance. It was symptomatic of where America is heading.”
