The government's plan to reunify families that were separated at the border is getting an approval by a federal judge. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw said today in San Diego that she "wholeheartedly" approves of the government's plan and they should move "full speed ahead." Government attorneys pointed out that Sabraw's injunction does not require the return of any deported parents to the country. The American Civil Liberties Union had asked for that.       The judge in the Paul Manafort tax and bank fraud Paul Manafort case is getting federal protection after saying he's received threats. Judge T.S. Ellis said he also won't release the names of the 12-member jury because he's concerned about their safety. The judge didn't release any details about the threats.        Sixty former intelligence officers sent a letter to President Trump telling him America is less safe if politics is deciding who gets a national security clearance and who does not. Trump revoked the credentials of former CIA Director John Brennan yesterday and today he admitted politics was the reason. Many of the people signing the letter said they disagree with Brennan's views, but they are concerned when former officials lose their clearance because of political retaliation.       The man convicted for killing five people and injuring six others at a Fort Lauderdale airport mass shooting is going to jail for a long time. Twenty-eight-year-old Esteban Santiago was sentenced to five life terms plus 120 years for the January 2017 attack. The Alaska man retrieved a handgun from his checked bag, then loaded it in a bathroom before randomly firing it in a crowded terminal.        A decorated Special Forces soldier is in trouble today after his two backpacks came back to the United States with 90 pounds of cocaine in it. Army Master Sergeant Daniel Gould vacationed in Columbia the week before and returned to the U.S. without the bags. Officials are trying to learn if the person who put the backpacks on the plane knew what was inside or not. Solving a Rubik's Cube is hard, but many have done it. No one has done six of them while holding their breath under water until now. An 18-year-old boy in the country of Georgia accomplished the feat in an effort to break the Guinness world record. Vako Marchelashvili did all six underwater in one minute and 44 seconds.
