President Trump will nominate Deputy Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette [[ brew-YET ]] as the department's new chief. Trump tweeted that his experience in the energy sector is unparalleled. Brouillette is an Army veteran and a former VP at Ford Motor Company. Brouillette also worked in the Energy Department under President George W. Bush.        A lawyer for the campaign to re-elect Donald Trump is threatening to sue CNN. The dispute regards a video secretly recorded by the right-wing group "Project Veritas." In the video, one CNN employee reportedly alleged that network chief Jeff Zucker has a personal feud with Trump. Another employee reportedly scoffed at the network's "facts first" slogan.        Violence erupted in Barcelona today after more than a half million people protested the jailing of Catalan separatist leaders. There were 17 arrests across the region Friday, according to El Pais [[ PIE-ace ]]. More than 40 people in the city were purported to be injured.        Tropical Storm Nestor is moving rapidly toward the northern Gulf Coast. The National Hurricane Center says storm surge and winds will pick up over the next few hours. There is a danger of life-threatening storm surge starting tonight for portions of the Florida Gulf Coast.        Vape shops in Oregon are claiming a temporary victory. The state's court of appeals put a halt to Governor Kate Brown's emergency ban on flavored nicotine vaping products just days after it went into effect. Vaping businesses argued that state regulators lacked standing to enforce the ban, saying it was too broad and the impact was too immediate.        Actors Jane Fonda and Sam Waterston have been arrested near the US Capitol. Fonda temporarily moved to Washington DC to host "Fire Drill Friday" to bring more attention to the climate change crisis. Waterston, one of her co-stars on Netflix's "Grace and Frankie," also attended today's event.
