The authorities said the gunman, Ian D. Long, 28, of Newbury Park, Calif., was found dead at the scene after killing 12 people, including a sheriff’s deputy, and being confronted by officers who had stormed the bar.

The .45-caliber handgun Long used had been purchased legally, and was outfitted with an extended magazine.

Anger and frustration were at a boiling point last night as several hundred protesters stood along Broadway in Midtown to protest President Donald Trump firing U.S. AG Jeff Sessions and replacing him with a man who has openly criticized the investigation of whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

The acting AG, Matthew Whitaker, once espoused the view that the courts “are supposed to be the inferior branch” and criticized the Supreme Court’s power to review legislative and executive acts and declare them unconstitutional, the lifeblood of its existence as a coequal branch of government.

Democrats, who regained control of the House in Tuesday’s midterm elections, are preparing for a Saturday Night Massacre situation in which Trump fires top Justice Department officials in an attempt to quash Mueller’s investigation.

In a last-minute act, Sessions has drastically limited the ability of federal law enforcement officials to use court-enforced agreements to overhaul local police departments accused of abuses and civil rights violations, the Justice Department announced.

Former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman will not face criminal charges for allegedly abusing multiple women with whom he was romantically involved.

Nassau County DA Madeline Singas, charged by the governor with investigating the Schneiderman case, announced the decision while proposing legislation to criminalize such behavior even if there isn’t proof it caused a victim “substantial pain,” which is the current standard.

Singas said the women who accused Schneiderman of abuse were credible, but there were legal hurdles to bringing charges. She did not elaborate on those obstacles, except to say that some of the accusations were too old to pursue under state law.

In a series of posts on Twitter, one of Schneiderman’s accusers said that she felt “completely vindicated” by his admission of misconduct — but added that “we need more than words.”
