Good Morning, it’s Friday, 16 March 2018 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is head of the Russian election meddling probe, has subpoened the Trump Organization for documents relating to their relationships and business interactions with Russia.

The first slate of NCAA games were played yesterday. Arizona was upset by Buffalo, Loyola-Chicago beat Miami, Texas Southern beat N.C.Central in a Tuesday “play-in” game and Gonzaga squeezed past UNC-Greensboro in the first round.
Today is National Panda Day….which is odd since most of the Pandas are in China and this is an American “national day”.

The Fine Print: Editor’s note: in an earlier edition of the Nightshift, we said that Texas Southern beat N.C. State. That was incorrect; Texas Southern beat North Carolina Central. Their next game is with Xavier, who is seeded No. 1 in the West bracket.
