MOVING IN. Ivanka Trump to get West Wing office despite having no official position with the government: “As her role in the White House grows — a role that comes with no playbook — Trump plans to adhere to the same ethics and records retention rules that apply to government employees, Gorelick said, even though she is not technically an employee. But ethics watchdogs immediately questioned whether she is going far enough to eliminate conflicts of interest, especially because she will not be automatically subjected to certain ethics rules while serving as a de facto White House adviser.”

A Fox News spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment Monday night.”

9/11. Families sue Saudi government: “The legal action, filed in federal court in Manhattan, details a scenario of involvement by Saudi officials who are said to have aided some of the hijackers before the attacks. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were Saudi nationals and three of them had previously worked for the kingdom.”
