President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order Tuesday aimed at moving forward on his campaign pledge to unravel former President Barack Obama's plan to curb global warming. The order seeks to suspend, rescind or flag for review more than a half-dozen measures in an effort to boost domestic energy production in the form of fossil fuels. As part of the roll-back, Trump will initiate a review of the Clean Power Plan, which restricts greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants. The regulation, which was the former president's signature effort to curb carbon emissions, has been the subject of long-running legal challenges by Republican-led states and those who profit from burning oil, coal and gas.

A lawyer for former deputy Attorney General Sally Yates wrote in letters last week that the Trump administration was trying to limit her testimony at congressional hearings focused on Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The hearing was later canceled by the House intelligence committee chairman. In the letters, attorney David O'Neil said he understood the Justice Department was invoking "further constraints" on testimony Yates could provide at a committee hearing that had been scheduled for Tuesday. He said the department's position was that all actions she took as deputy attorney general were "client confidences" that could not be disclosed without written approval. "We believe that the Department's position in this regard is overbroad, incorrect, and inconsistent with the Department's historical approach to the congressional testimony of current and former senior officials," O'Neil wrote in a March 23 letter to Justice Department official Samuel Ramer.
A Malibu beachfront compound once listed for as much as $57.5 million sold for $24.15 million this month, according to a report. The 11,413-square-foot home designed by architect Frank Gehry on Broad Beach Road encompasses more than an acre and has 160 feet of ocean frontage, the Los Angeles Times reports. The Malibu mansion features a courtyard entry, manicured gardens, a tennis court and a lap swimming pool. The most recent asking price was $29.995 million, but the Times reports that the home sold for about $5 million less than that to a company that lists Ryan Hekmat as the agent for service. Hekmat is the son-in-law of Isaac Larian, chief executive officer of MGA Entertainment, the biggest privately owned toy company in the world. The home has been dubbed the Borman House, after its original owner -- the late PennCorp Financial chief Burton Borman.
