The judge issued a gag order today that orders President Trump's political ally to quit talking to the media or make any other public statements about his case.        White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is the latest person to come forward and admit that she answered questions in the Special Counsel's investigation into Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Sanders said she was interviewed last year. She added the President has asked everyone to cooperate with the probe.       John Dingell is at rest. The longest-serving member in Congressional history was laid to rest today at Arlington National Cemetery. He represented a district in Michigan for 59 years.       A California couple is pleading no content to felony grand theft charges. Police claim they took more than 18-hundred plants from Big Sur Park. Officials say poaching succulents is a growing trend.
