Street Closures In DC For March Against NRA

Expect street closures in downtown DC during the afternoon commute. Demonstrators are marching today from the NRA headquarters in Northern Virginia all the way to the Justice Department, and officials say street closures will take effect once the crowds move into the District. Police say motorists should expect rolling street closures on the Key Bridge, along Pennsylvania Avenue, 17th Street and 15th Street as marchers make their way to the Department of Justice. Tomorrow, people should also expect delays in the eight-hundred and nine-hundred blocks of Pennsylvania Avenue, NW.

Trump Jr. Flap Is Growing

Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian attorney reportedly included more people than originally thought. A translator and a former Russian counter-intelligence officer also claim they took part in the discussions along with Jared Kushner and then-campaign chief Paul Manafort. The younger Trump has described the meeting as “nothing.” Kushner is President Trump’s son-in-law and a top White House adviser. Trump Junior said he took the meeting at Trump Tower because he was told he would get some negative information about Hillary Clinton.

Back-To-School Spending Soaring

Parents can expect to shell out more this year on back-to-school spending. The National Retail Federation says college spending could set a new record, while elementary through high school shopping is expected to outpace last year. The survey from the NRF said total back-to-college spending will likely top 54-billion-dollars, and other back-to-school spending should be nearly 30-billion-dollars. College students are expected to do most of their shopping online, while the parents of elementary and high school students will do most of their shopping at department stores.
