The San Francisco ICE spokesman James Schwab has quit following the DHS' spread of false information that "roughly 800 undocumented immigrants escaped arrest" because of the warning issued by the Oakland Mayor of the ICE raids the day prior, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Schwab believed the number to be significantly less than what agency officials — including Jeff Sessions — were saying, and had reportedly asked for a correction.

Key quote: “I asked them to change the information. I told them that the information was wrong, they asked me to deflect, and I didn’t agree with that. Then I took some time and I quit.”

Former Playboy model Karen McDougal detailed her relationship with President Trump — which he has denied — in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper on Thursday night, including the first time she met Melania and how he tried to pay her after the first time they had sex.

The details: The alleged affair took place while he was married to Melania and shortly after his youngest son was born. McDougal said they met while the Apprentice was filming at the Playboy mansion, and began seeing each other "quite frequently." She told Cooper that Trump told her he loved her "all the time," and that there "was a real relationship there."
