Conservative House members expressed their frustration to ousted Trump adviser Steve Bannon, who took aim at House Speaker Paul Ryan's leadership.
    *Did the president go rogue and sell out the GOP? Has the Republican Party been thrown into permanent disarray or can the warring factions mend their ideological differences?
    *Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that provided legal protections for as many as 800,000 undocumented people who came to this country as children. Mr. Trump chose to delay the phase out of the Obama-era program for six months to give Congress a chance to enact a fix, but the president has sent mixed signals to "Dreamers" about their fate if no compromise can be reached.

    *Michael Scherer of The Washington Post
