WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Friday ignored his attorney general's public request to stop tweeting about the Justice Department, saying he had the legal right to ask the agency to intervene in a criminal case, but he's so far "chosen not to."

Last month, we reported on Guam’s dispute with the Justice Department over voter eligibility in a plebiscite restricted to Chamorros. In another similar case, the Justice Department charges that Guam’s Chamorro Land Trust violates anti-discrimination provisions of the Fair Housing Act. We have details from Neal Conan in the Pacific News Minute.

The U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing a complaint filed last week by the American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaii regarding the current state of Hawaii’s prison system.

The document says the state’s prisons and jails don’t meet minimum standards and violate the constitutional rights of prisoners.

They say that 7 out of 9 state prisons are severely overcrowded and underfunded.

Adding that facilities lack proper health services, food safety, and sanitary conditions.
