RUSSIA. House Dems pause Trump-Russia probe interviews, say witnesses haven’t provided proper documents: “The interviews would have included former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page and longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone, who both say they’re eager to appear before the panel, along with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. The stalled interviews come amid another public spat between House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and ranking Democrat Adam Schiff of California.”
BRITNEY SPEARS. Her love letter to the LGBTQ community: “You see, it’s actually you that lifts me up. The unwavering loyalty. the lack of judgment. The unapologetic truth. Acceptance! Your stories are what inspire me, bring me joy and make me and my sons strive to be better people.”
L.A. RAMS. Team is first from the NFL to sponsor a gay pride event: “The team has joined up with Venice Pride — the organization behind the massive Venice Pride block party — and has sponsored the blue lights in the letter “C” in the famous VENICE sign. Each letter in the sign will be lit up with a different color — just like the rainbow LGBTQ pride flag. The event begins June 2.”
INDONESIA. Police crackdown fueling anti-LGBTQ hysteria: “Indonesia’s police raids against LGBT people are part of a disturbing pattern of rights abuses that strike fear into already-marginalized communities,” said Brad Adams, Asia director. “The national police need to stop these raids to restore public confidence that the police will do their duty to protect all Indonesians.”
STOP THE CRACKDOWN:
