Today, President Trump had his first full Cabinet meeting at the White House and talked up his accomplishments so far.

"Never been a president who's done more than we've done,” said President Trump. But what the administration still hasn't been able to do is get any version of their travel ban passed.

Monday, the 9th Circuit Court ruled against the President's revised travel ban, which blocks people from 6 predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days and suspends the U.S. refugee program for 120 days.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer retorted, “It’s fully lawful and will be upheld by the Supreme Court.

This comes the same day Attorney Generals from the District of Columbia and Maryland announced plans to sue President Trump, accusing him of violating the Constitution by accepting payments from foreign governments while in office, and not fully removing himself from his businesses.

District of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine said, "Never in our history of this country have we had a president with these kinds of business entanglements."

The Trump administration insists these interests do not violate the constitution, with Press Secretary Sean Spicer saying, "It's hard to conclude that partisan motivation is not behind the suit filed by Democratic attorney generals.”

And the Justice Department is still trying to figure out what ties if any there were between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, set to answer questions from the Senate Intelligence Committee about his role, if any, in the firing of former FBI director James Comey and his contacts with Russians during the campaign.

The Trump administration says depending on the scope of questions, it’s possible attorney general Jeff Sessions could invoke executive privilege, where conversations with the president are kept confidential.
