‘CATASTROPHE’ in Houston — WAPO: Trump Organization wanted to build Trump Tower in Moscow during 2016 campaign — Rove playbook back in 2018 — JOHNNY DESTEFANO wedding — B’DAY: Bill Cohen

BUZZ THERE IS ALREADY DISCUSSION about Congress allocating emergency money to help rebuild Houston — America’s fourth-largest city — after this massive storm. Remember: these legislative fights are not easy. As HuffPo’s Matt Fuller (@MEPFuller) pointed out last night on Twitter, it’s not always easy to pass these kinds of bills. We have to imagine the level of devastation in Houston, combined with the state’s large delegation in Congress, will make this a bit easier.

Good Monday morning. WELCOME TO THE LAST WEEK of relative quiet in Washington. Congress is back next week and also has to deal with:

Story Continued Below

The National Flood Insurance Program expires at the end of September. … The FAA needs its authority renewed by the end of September. … SCHIP, a state-based children’s health-care program, must be renewed by the end of September. … AND, the government runs out of money Sept. 30 and the debt ceiling needs to be lifted by Sept. 29.

THERE ARE ROUGHLY 50 LEGISLATIVE DAYS left in 2017.

DEVASTATION IN TEXAS — HOUSTON CHRONICLE: “No end in sight to historic floods caused by Harvey,” by Mike Tolson: “The normally matter-of-fact National Weather Service joined in the excited reaction to a deluge that began just after dark Saturday night and promised never to end: ‘All impacts are unknown and beyond anything experienced,’ it said in a Sunday tweet. One of its meteorologists, Patrick Blood, hardly knew what to call it. ‘It’s catastrophic, unprecedented, epic — whatever adjective you want to use,’ he said.

“Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said late Sunday that police and fire officials received nearly 6,000 calls and had rescued more than 1,000 people. Many of the high-water rescues involved people trapped on their roofs or in their attics in southeast Houston. ‘It breaks your heart,’ Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said via livestream on Twitter, as he stood in waist-high water in north Houston. ‘But it’s Texas, we’ll get through it.’ …

“Gov. Greg Abbott said 3,000 National Guard members will join the Texas Guard in areas ravaged by Harvey. The federal government declared Harris County a disaster area Sunday morning. President Trump said he would come to Texas to inspect damage on Tuesday if possible. On Sunday, the president praised the government response in a tweet, writing: ‘Wow — Now experts are calling #Harvey a once in 500 year flood! We have an all-out effort going, and going well!’” http://bit.ly/2vC44Ky

— IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO WATCH how Trump surveys this storm. Both Houston airports, Hobby and George H.W. Bush Intercontinental, are closed. The city is completely paralyzed.

— “Why Wasn’t Houston Evacuated Before The ‘Unprecedented’ Storm?” by BuzzFeed’s Nidhi Prakash: “Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner defended the decision, telling reporters at a press conference Sunday that officials did not expect the city to be directly in the line of the storm, and that there was not time to evacuate residents safely. ‘In this particular case, the hurricane, we were not in the direct line,’ Turner said. ‘It is true we anticipated a lot of rain, a lot of rain. But the best place for people to be is in their homes.’ ‘You cannot in the city of Houston put 2.3 million people on the road. That is dangerous,’ he continued.

“‘When you combine Houston and Harris County, you literally cannot put 6.5 million people on the road. If you think the situation right now is bad, you give an order to evacuate, you are creating a nightmare. Especially when it’s not planned.’ To illustrate this, Turner pointed to the city’s disastrous evacuation efforts during Hurricane Rita in 2005, when some 2.5 million residents tried to leave Houston before the storm, creating monumental traffic jams and leaving 100 people dead.’” http://bzfd.it/2wCcSF4

— “FEMA director says Harvey is probably the worst disaster in Texas history,” by WaPo’s Joel Achenbach and Lisa Rein: “The disaster Hurricane Harvey — now a tropical storm — has created is immense in scale, encompassing thousands of square miles of Southeast Texas. It has brought epic flooding that will affect millions of people. Rivers are still rising, the rain still falling. ‘This will be a devastating disaster, probably the worst disaster the state’s seen,’ William ‘Brock’ Long, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, told The Washington Post on Sunday. ‘The recovery to this event is going to last many years to be able to help Texas and the people impacted by this event achieve a new normal.’” http://wapo.st/2xFfizz

THE IMPACT, by AP’s Marcy Gordon: “With the heavy precipitation expected to last for days, it’s still unclear how bad the damage will be, but there is already evidence of widespread losses. Key oil and gas facilities along the Texas Gulf Coast have temporarily shut down, and flooding in the Houston and Beaumont areas could seriously pinch gasoline supplies. Companies operating in the Gulf of Mexico have evacuated drilling platforms and rigs, crimping the flow of oil and gas. Experts believe gasoline prices could increase as much as 25 cents a gallon.” http://bit.ly/2wC2sVJ

MEXICO TO TRUMP: WE’RE NOT PAYING FOR THE WALL — CNN: “In response [to a Trump Sunday tweet], the country’s foreign ministry released a statement saying Mexico would not pay for a wall or other physical barrier at the border ‘under any circumstances.’ ‘This determination is not part of a Mexican negotiating strategy, but a principle of national sovereignty and dignity,’ the statement said.” http://cnn.it/2xq6VIA

SIREN — “Trump’s business sought deal on a Trump Tower in Moscow while he ran for president,” by WaPo’s Carol Leonnig, Tom Hamburger and Ros Helderman: “While Donald Trump was running for president in late 2015 and early 2016, his company was pursuing a plan to develop a massive Trump Tower in Moscow, according to several people familiar with the proposal and new records reviewed by Trump Organization lawyers. As part of the discussions, a Russian-born real estate developer urged Trump to come to Moscow to tout the proposal and suggested that he could get President Vladimir Putin to say ‘great things’ about Trump, according to several people who have been briefed on his correspondence.

“The developer, Felix Sater, predicted in a November 2015 email that he and Trump Organization leaders would soon be celebrating — both one of the biggest residential projects in real estate history and Donald Trump’s election as president, according to two of the people with knowledge of the exchange. Sater wrote to Trump Organization Executive Vice President Michael Cohen ‘something to the effect of, ‘Can you believe two guys from Brooklyn are going to elect a president?’’ said one person briefed on the email exchange. Sater emigrated from what was then the Soviet Union when he was 6 and grew up in Brooklyn.

“Trump never went to Moscow as Sater proposed. And although investors and Trump’s company signed a letter of intent, they lacked the land and permits to proceed and the project was abandoned at the end of January 2016, just before the presidential primaries began, several people familiar with the proposal said.

“Nevertheless, the details of the deal, which have not previously been disclosed, provide evidence that Trump’s business was actively pursuing significant commercial interests in Russia at the same time he was campaigning to be president — and in a position to determine U.S.-Russia relations. The new details from the emails, which are scheduled to be turned over to congressional investigators soon, also point to the likelihood of additional contacts between Russia-connected individuals and Trump associates during his presidential bid.” http://wapo.st/2wKZJdj

TRUMP’S WHITE HOUSE — “Trump’s prized perk: Oval Office photo ops,” by Josh Dawsey: “Donald Trump has grown frustrated with many parts of being president. But the former showbiz star is still in love with one perk: The Oval Office photo op. Despite the weight of multiple Russia investigations, open war with GOP leaders and a stalled congressional agenda, Trump has spent considerable time grinning behind the Resolute Desk, where he summons visitors from PGA star John Daly to former campaign aides to pastors, truck drivers, tech CEOs, teachers and even journalists to pose in front of the gold curtains.

“He tells aides, from senior White House advisers to his private bodyguard, Keith Schiller, to snap the photos on cell phones, or he shouts for Shealah Craighead, the official White House photographer, to come in. The often impatient president will sometimes pose for several minutes per sitting, taking variations of a photo with a single group. He even stands with people to inspect the photos. ‘Check the lighting,’ one senior White House official said, describing his comments. ‘Are your eyes closed? Do you want another? He knows these are special moments for people.’

“The photos illustrate how master-marketer Trump sees the job, White House officials say — and are one part of the presidency that don’t seem to grate on him, even though other presidents have barely tolerated the click-and-grin sessions.” http://politi.co/2wBV6Sa

2018 WATCH — “Team Trump turns to Rove playbook to juice 2018 turnout,” by Alex Isenstadt: “Donald Trump’s White House may take a page from the Karl Rove playbook. The administration has been in talks to put conservative initiatives on the ballot in 2018 midterm battleground states in hopes of energizing base voters dispirited by the performance of Republican-controlled Washington. The strategy is similar to the one Rove used in 2004. The George W. Bush political guru helped engineer a slate of anti-gay marriage amendments that year to boost GOP turnout in swing states such as Ohio, an approach that many are convinced helped pave the way for Bush’s reelection. (Rove has denied accounts that he orchestrated the 11-state effort.)

“White House aides are less interested in a ballot initiative campaign focused on social issues, fearful that it would only serve to further stoke an already-motivated liberal base. Instead, according to three people familiar with the deliberations, they’re considering initiatives involving tax reform and other economic issues seen as more likely to invigorate conservatives. Tax reform also goes to the heart of Trump’s agenda, and he’s expected to spend much of the fall pursuing it.” http://politi.co/2whIIUI

SHADE, THROWN — “Gorka Says McMaster Has ‘Obama Lens’ on Threat of Radical Islam,” by Jerusalem Post’s Michael Wilner: “In an interview with The Jerusalem Post, Gorka said he had not once heard H.R. McMaster speak critically of the state in his six months since taking office. ‘I’m not here to feed stories of palace intrigue – I hate that, and I’m still loyal to the president and his agenda,’ Gorka said. But ‘I have never heard Gen. McMaster say things that are anti-Israeli. I’ve never heard that.’ Gorka did, however, offer harsh criticism of McMaster’s stance toward Islamists, speaking of the violent extremism as a problem inherent to Islam itself. McMaster ‘sees the threat of Islam through an Obama administration lens, meaning that religion has nothing to do with the war we are in,’ Gorka said. ‘He believes — and he told me in his office — that all of these people are just criminals. That is simply wrong.’” http://bit.ly/2wBRorR

SARAH ELLISON in October’s Vanity Fair, “Exiles on Pennsylvania Avenue: How Jared and Ivanka Were Repelled by Washington’s Elite: “When I asked a longtime associate how Jared and Ivanka felt about their time in Washington, the first word uttered was ‘sacrificial.’ … Ivanka is more practiced in the spotlight than Kushner, though she can be cold to staffers, particularly those who are not in favor with the president, according to a former West Wing aide. ‘She tries to charm you at first, and then there’ll be the cutting remark in front of her father,’ the former adviser added. Kushner, though he tries to be casual and jokes with other staffers, can have even more of an edge.

“Once, when [Reince] Priebus asked Kushner what his team of [Reed] Cordish and [Chris] Liddell had been up to, Kushner retorted, according to someone who heard the exchange, ‘Reince, we aren’t getting paid. What the f*** do you care?’ … When they lived in New York, Kushner used to remind Ivanka that ‘we’re in the zoo, but let’s try hard not to be part of the animals.’ He often would add, ‘You want to be watching.’ The friend noted that Kushner has traded up into a higher-powered circle: ‘He is rolling with the prince of Saudi Arabia and not the real-estate guys anymore.’” http://bit.ly/2xFJHxI

WSJ: “Uber Selects Expedia CEO Dara Khosrowshahi to Lead Company,” by Greg Bensinger: “Uber Technologies Inc.’s board has voted to appoint Expedia Inc. Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi as its new CEO, capping a tumultuous nine-week search after Travis Kalanick resigned in late June, according to people familiar with the matter. Uber’s board was deciding on Sunday between Mr. Khosrowshahi and Meg Whitman, chief executive of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co., ultimately electing the lesser-known executive who has been at the helm of Expedia since 2005. Representatives for Uber didn’t return requests for comment and an Expedia spokeswoman declined to comment.” http://on.wsj.com/2wBVnEB

FUN STORY — “Former Eagles All-Pro Jon Runyan explains why he’s an Uber driver – and what happens when fans recognize him,” by PhillyVoice’s Matt Mullin: “Runyan, the one who spent nine of his 14 seasons in the NFL with the Eagles – has actually been driving for Uber for almost nine months now. And before you ask, he isn’t broke. … [H]e made more than $40 million in his NFL career and has continued to work throughout his post-football life – in addition to his work on radio on and TV, Runyan was a two-term U.S. Representative former New Jersey’s 3rd congressional district (2011-2015) and is about to enter his second season as the NFL’s Vice President of Policy and Rules Administration. So, no, Runyan isn’t driving for Uber because he needs the money. The truth is, he just gets bored sometimes.” http://bit.ly/2vBQg2F

REMINDER — Power Briefing, our afternoon edition, is taking a break this week.

MORE ZINKE DRAMA — “Sale of Interior secretary’s motor home raises $25K question,” by AP’s Bobby Caina Calva in Helena, Montana: “U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s dormant congressional campaign committee recently sold a 2004 motor home at a steep discount to an old friend in the Montana Legislature. But a seemingly ordinary transaction between friends, when seen through the optics of stringent campaign finance laws, can raise a bevy of questions – especially when those friends are politically high-powered and well-connected. …

“The buyer, state Sen. Ed Buttrey, said the 37-foot (11-meter) recreational vehicle had engine problems and other damage, which would undercut its value. But he still felt he got a ‘nice deal.’ Buttrey maintains there was nothing improper about the transaction. Yet he acknowledged it might prompt questions, especially because he says he’s in the final vetting stages for a key post in Zinke’s Interior Department.” http://bit.ly/2xpG3Zo

AT THE PENTAGON — “Trump Forges Ahead on Costly Nuclear Overhaul,” by NYT’s David Sanger and William Broad: “During his speech last week about Afghanistan, President Trump slipped in a line that had little to do with fighting the Taliban: ‘Vast amounts’ are being spent on ‘our nuclear arsenal and missile defense,’ he said, as the administration builds up the military. The president is doing exactly that. Last week, the Air Force announced major new contracts for an overhaul of the American nuclear force: $1.8 billion for initial development of a highly stealthy nuclear cruise missile, and nearly $700 million to begin replacing the 40-year-old Minuteman missiles in silos across the United States.

“While both programs were developed during the Obama years, the Trump administration has seized on them, with only passing nods to the debate about whether either is necessary or wise. They are the first steps in a broader remaking of the nuclear arsenal — and the bombers, submarines and missiles that deliver the weapons — that the government estimated during Mr. Obama’s tenure would ultimately cost $1 trillion or more.” http://nyti.ms/2xq6b6q

SPEAKING OF TAX REFORM … “How Stephen M. Ross’ gift to the University of Michigan ended up in tax court,” by Detroit Free Press’ Matthew Dolan and David Jesse: “On his way to becoming the University of Michigan’s largest donor, Stephen M. Ross and a group of business partners donated a collective gift to his alma mater. In return, the partnership claimed a giant charitable tax deduction: $33 million. The [IRS] didn’t buy it. IRS lawyers flagged Ross and his partners as engaging in a ‘tax avoidance scheme lacking in economic substance … to the benefit of Mr. Ross and his associates at Related Companies.’ It would take nearly a decade of legal wrangling before U.S. Tax Judge James S. Halpern sided with the IRS last month and disallowed the entire $33-million write-off that the judge valued at a more paltry $3.4 million. The judge also imposed maximum civil penalties for a ‘gross valuation misstatement’ that could now cost Ross and his partners millions more.” http://on.freep.com/2vkrZ5X

THE WAVE OF PROTESTS — “Masked anarchists violently rout right-wing demonstrators in Berkeley,” by SF Chronicle’s Lizzie Johnson, Erin Allday, Michael Cabanatuan and Nanette Asimov: “An army of anarchists in black clothing and masks routed a small group of right-wing demonstrators who had gathered in a Berkeley park Sunday to rail against the city’s famed progressive politics, driving them out — sometimes violently — while overwhelming a huge contingent of police officers.

“Hundreds of officers tried to maintain calm in and around Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park before the 1 p.m. ‘No to Marxism in Berkeley’ rally, putting up barricades, searching bags and confiscating sticks, masks, pepper spray and even water bottles. … But once again, counterdemonstrators frustrated efforts by police, who numbered about 400. As the crowd swelled to several times that size, officers stepped aside and allowed hundreds of people angered by the presence of the right-wing rally to climb over the barriers into the park.” http://bit.ly/2waStWA
