Over the last several weeks, the Trump administration has endured a hurricane of controversy.
Key resignations, challenges in filling his Cabinet, and other crucial federal positions, fights with the press, US intelligence agencies, and his critics have all culminated thus far in a tumultuous first month in office for President Donald Trump.
Inside the eye of this hurricane, however, Trump could soon face critical issues that have yet to fully materialize — like next week's planned replacement of his rejected immigration executive order that is likely to be challenged in courts throughout the country.
Trump was named in 42 federal lawsuits in his first 11 days as commander-in-chief, CNN reported earlier this month. Those lawsuits focus mostly on the president's original travel ban and accusations of conflicts of interest, but other questions surrounding the legality of some of the White House's statements and actions may follow.

Four-year-old Safia Adan lies in Baidoa Regional Hospital in southern Somalia with a tube through her nose. She is suffering from severe malnutrition and dehydration. At her side her worried grandmother looks up to explain that Safia first became sick after drinking water from the local well.
"The water had changed colour but we still drank it," says her grandmother. "We stopped after Safia became sick. We brought her to the city because we knew you get could get good treatment here."
They were lucky – seven people from their village are now confirmed dead and the hospital has seen a surge in children suffering from water-borne diseases such as cholera and diarrhoea.
They are the latest victims of the on-going drought ravaging Somalia that has left more than six million people, half the country’s population, facing food shortages and has seen water supplies become infected with bacteria rendering them undrinkable.

- Former national security adviser Michael Flynn saw Trump's plan to lift sanctions on Russia before he resigned.
- Plan was drafted by Trump Organization Michel Cohen and Felix Sater, a Russian-American property developer.
- Cohen was named last month in the unverified Russia-Trump dossier compiled by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele as part of the "ongoing secret liaison relationship between the New York tycoon’s campaign and the Russian leadership.”
- Pro-Russia Ukrainian lawmaker Andrii V. Artemenko was also involved.
Trump Organization lawyer Michel Cohen hand-delivered a "peace" plan for Russia and Ukraine to former national security adviser Michael Flynn before Flynn was asked to resign, the New York Times reported on Sunday.
The plan, which involved lifting sanctions on Russia, was drafted by Cohen — a close confidante of President Donald Trump who has served as his organization's special counsel since 2007 — and Felix Sater, a Russian-American real estate developer who has helped the Trump Organization scout deals in Russia.
Sater, a businessman formerly linked with the Mafia who has boasted of his "relationship with Trump," told the Washington Post last May that he "handled all of the negotiations" for the Trump Organization's dealings in Russia in the mid-2000's.

Han Yolo! Harrison Ford, 74, gets back in the cockpit of a JET just three days after he nearly crashed his plane into a Boeing 737
Harrison Ford is back in the cockpit again just days after he almost crashed his single-engine plane into a Boeing 737 full of passengers.
The 74-year-old actor, who looked well dressed in dark jeans, sunglasses, a blazer and shirt, was spotted boarding a green Cessna Citation Sovereign 680 at Santa Monica Airport with his copilot before the pair jetted off together, on Thursday morning.
Just three days earlier, Ford was involved in a near miss with an American Airlines jet when he mistakenly landed on the taxiway at John Wayne Airport in Orange County. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) told TMZ they will investigate but the probe has been put on hold due to a case backlog, leaving him free to fly for the foreseeable future.
A witness who saw the Star Wars actor's harrowing miss at John Wayne on Monday claimed that Ford had 'completely misjudged the runway'.
The man told the gossip site he was looking out of the windows at the terminal, while waiting for a friend, when he saw Ford's single-engine Husky plane coming in to land.
He described the plane as looking totally out of position and like it was about to crash after Ford 'completely misjudged the runway'.
Moments before the plane hit the ground, Ford 'banked really sharp' and 'hit hard' on the adjacent taxiway, according to the witness who also snapped a photo of the landing.

Donald in denial: My White House is a finely tuned machine (and if you hear anything to the contrary it's just fake news from the lying media fed by lowlife leakers in the intelligence community)
Donald Trump claimed on Thursday that his administration is 'running like a fine-tuned machine, despite the fact that I cannot get my cabinet approved.'
He ignored a week which saw him fire his national security adviser for lying to the vice president, and a mounting tide of leaks from inside his White House and his intelligence agencies – instead turning on the media.
The president complained that the national press corps, his most reliable long-time political sparring partner, continues to portray his work unfairly, suggesting that dishonest reporters are responsible for the lack of credit he gets from the public.
He jabbed and jabbed over what he has called 'fake news' reports, ultimately announcing a change of vocabulary. 'I'm changing it from "fake news," though. "Very fake news",' he quipped.
'I turn on the TV, open the newspapers – and I see stories of chaos, chaos,' Trump complained in his first solo press conference since taking over the Oval Office.
'Yet it is the exact opposite.'
'Much of the media in Washington, D.C., along with New York and Los Angeles speaks not for the people, but for the special interests,' he claimed, renewing a campaign theme that at one time drew thousands in sports arenas to yell 'CNN sucks!' at the top of their lungs.

Yahoo is telling some of its users that hackers may have logged into their accounts, using a forged "cookie" which gives access even without a password.
According to CNET, the attack was originally announced in September, but has largely been overlooked until now as the revelation was included within a larger announcement about a Yahoo security breach considered the largest in history.
Yahoo said it had connected some of the cookie-based attacks to the "same state-sponsored actor" believed to be responsible for one of the other hack.
It's unclear why some of the users are receiving the notification now, months after Yahoo first disclosed the cookie attacks.
