The White House says an independent inspector general will conduct a new investigation of the FBI and Justice Department. The expanded probe will look for "any irregularities" with the FBI or Justice Department's "tactics" concerning the Trump presidential campaign. Over the weekend, Trump demanded a probe into whether his presidential campaign was infiltrated or surveilled by the FBI for political purposes.        President Trump is giving high marks to the first woman to head the CIA. At a swearing-in ceremony for Gina Haspel [[ HASS-pel ]] yesterday, Trump praised her toughness. He noted Haspel's three decades of work as a CIA operative. Trump said the CIA employs the most elite intelligence professionals on the planet. He said that Haspel will help keep the U.S. safe, proud and free.        Texas Governor Greg Abbott will be hosting a series of roundtables on school safety. The governor announced yesterday the first of the discussion groups happens at the Texas Capitol and will feature education and law enforcement leaders talking how to improve school district security. Two more roundtables are planned for tomorrow and Thursday. The roundtables are happening after last week's deadly attack at Santa Fe High School which left ten dead.       The Trump administration is getting bad reviews for its coin commemorating President Trump's planned summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. One side of the coin released yesterday shows Trump and Kim in profile and the other shows Air Force One flying over the White House. Many critics are panning the description of Kim as Supreme Leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Trump and Kim are tentatively scheduled to meet in Singapore on June 12th but North Korea has recently said Kim might not show up.        A Maryland police officer is dead in the line of duty. The Baltimore County officer was critically injured during an incident yesterday afternoon, transported to a hospital and pronounced dead a short time later. The officer was investigating a possible breaking and entering when she confronted at least one suspect. Police have not released any details about the injuries the officer suffered pending the results of an autopsy.        New data is shedding light on higher suicide rates among young African-American children. A study published this week in the journal, "JAMA," found that the number of black children younger than 13 that take their own lives is twice as much as the number of white children that do. African-American kids ages five to 12 had especially higher suicide rates.
