Happy Bastille Day! It’s Friday. Yesterday, President Trump defended the actions of his son and blamed the media along with the Obama administration for the controversy surrounding Donald Jr. during a joint appearance with French President Emmanuel Macron. Trump will remain in France for the weekend to commemorate the centennial of America’s entry into World War I.

In other news, a Philadelphia man pleaded guilty to killing four men that went missing last week in a Philadelphia suburb; Chinese human rights activist Liu Xiaobo died of liver failure while in the custody of the Chinese government; Attorney General Jeff Sessions released a heavily redacted documentation of his contacts with foreign officials from the past seven years; and the Television Academy announced the nominees for the 2017 Emmy Awards.

As always, have a great weekend and thanks for reading Wonks This Way.
