A U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent died Sunday after he was injured while on duty in Texas, the agency said in a statement.
Rogelio Martinez, a 36-year-old from El Paso, and his partner responded to activity in the Big Bend area when they were injured; a Border Patrol spokesman said he could not disclose what happened to the agents. Martinez died in the hospital, and his partner, whose name has not been released, remains in serious condition. Authorities are searching for suspects and witnesses to the incident, with the FBI taking over the investigation. Martinez became a border agent in August 2013. Catherine Garcia

"Man, crazy s--t happens so fast in this presidency, sometimes it feels like I'm binge-watching it," Seth Meyers said on Monday's Late Night, trying to digest the weekend's news. "It's like, 'He's suing the porn star? Two hours ago he said he didn't even know her! Where's my Chinese food?'" He compared Trump's shifting story on whether he had a relationship with Stormy Daniels to Trump's shifting story on whether he has a relationship with Vladimir Putin, with a compelling video montage. And he briefly ran through Cambridge Analytica's harvesting of 50 million Facebook accounts, apparently to help Trump win — something Facebook has known about for two years.
But mostly Meyers focused on firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, "an object of paranoid fixation for Trump," and Trump's attacks on Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Trump "has spent months trying to discredit McCabe because McCabe is a key witness in the Mueller investigation, specifically with regard to the firing of FBI Director James Comey — which is the central question when it comes to possible obstruction of justice charges," Meyers said. And like the Comey case, firing McCabe may backfire. "Trump is such an idiot — he keeps firing dudes who take meticulous notes," he said. "We don't know what's in those memos, nor do we know what Robert Mueller knows, but what we do know is that Trump's public behavior is very much the behavior of a guilty man."
Firing McCabe 26 hours before he can collect his pension — on his 50th birthday no less — seems "extra vindictive" on Trump's part, Trevor Noah said on The Daily Show. We don't know what happened, but Trump's behavior is definitely "suspicious," and it points to firing Mueller. "He's definitely considering it," Noah said. "You know how they say men thing about sex every 8 seconds? That's what Trump does with firing people. ... So Robert Mueller, I don't know when your next birthday is, but something tells me the president may be planning a surprise." Peter Weber
