  • Giuliani on whether Trump will sit down with Mueller: 'Good luck -- over my dead body'

    Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani told "Fox News Sunday" that President Trump will sit down one-on-one with Special Counsel Robert Mueller "over my dead body" amid bombshell new revelations in the false statements case against ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, whom Giuliani said was "railroaded" and "framed." In a spirited back-and-forth with host Chris Wallace, Giuliani also reiterated his claim that Trump initially "didn't know about" the hush-money payments made to two women by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen that prosecutors have alleged constituted campaign finance violations. Giuliani said Trump eventually found out about the payments and reimbursed Cohen, adding that...

    People who oppose immigration often argue that migrants bring disease with them, and that they then become a burden to health systems in their new countries because they’re so sick. But that's not true, a team of experts argued in a new report released Wednesday.

    PARIS, Dec 1 (Reuters) - Rioters ran amok across central Paris on Saturday, torching cars and buildings, looting shops, smashing windows and clashing with police in the worst unrest in more than a decade, posing a dire challenge to Emmanuel Macron's presidency. The authorities were caught off guard by the escalation in violence after two weeks of nationwide protests against fuel taxes and living costs, known as the "yellow vest" movement after fluorescent jackets kept in all vehicles in France. In Paris, police said they had arrested almost 300 people while 110 were injured, including 20 members of the security...

    The multi-national coffee chain Starbucks, which has 28,916 shops worldwide and 14,451 in the United States, said it would provide pornography-free Wi-Fi in its U.S. stores starting in 2019. This is happening because of pressure, over many years, from a coalition led by the internet safety group Enough is Enough (EIE). In an email to Business Insider, a Starbucks representative said the company had “identified a solution” to block porn in its U.S. stores, which it would implement in 2019 – over two years after the coffee chain initially said it would do so, and six years after it began...

  • Sen. Tim Scott announces opposition to judicial nominee Farr, effectively dooming confirmation

    South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott announced Thursday he will oppose embattled judicial nominee Thomas Farr, in a reversal of his position a day earlier that seemingly ends the nominee's chances for now amid fierce criticism by civil rights groups. Democratic lawmakers and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) have long cited Farr's work on the campaigns of North Carolina Republican Sen. Jesse Helms in 1984 and 1990. Farr was first nominated to the federal court in the Eastern District of North Carolina by former President George W. Bush in 2006, but never received a confirmation...

    South Carolina GOP Sen. Tim Scott said Thursday he would oppose the nomination of Thomas Farr to the federal bench over his links to voter suppression efforts in North Carolina targeting blacks. Scott’s decision assures that President Trump’s nominee will not be confirmed by the Senate, where retiring Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake had already said he would oppose Farr’s nomination. Senate Republicans have a slim 51-49 majority and could not afford to lose more than one vote since all 49 Democrats oppose Trump’s pick. In a statement explaining his decision, Scott, who is black, cited a 1991 Department of...

    Paul Manafort's allegedly lied about his personal business dealings and contacts with former associates in Ukraine to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators, the Wall Street Journal reports. People familiar with the matter reportedly told the Journal that such statements are among the reasons that Mueller this week ended Manafort's plea agreement over two months after it was reached. Manafort allegedly misrepresented information about payments he received related to his lobbying work, the people familiar with the matter said. Manafort, President Trump's former campaign manager, was accused Monday by the government of breaching his plea deal. According to court filings, they...

    First lady Melania Trump on Wednesday dismissed those who have mocked the red Christmas trees decorating the White House for the holidays, during an event at Liberty University in Virginia. "We are in [the] 21st century and everybody has a different taste. I think they look fantastic,” she said, inviting the students to sign up for a tour to view the holiday decor. “In real life, they look even more beautiful.” Trump unveiled the decorations on Monday in a video on Twitter, showing 40 crimson topiary trees lining the eastern colonnade of the White House.

    On a muggy October morning in 2007, Miami’s top federal prosecutor, Alexander Acosta, had a breakfast appointment with a former colleague, Washington, D.C., attorney Jay Lefkowitz. It was an unusual meeting for the then-38-year-old prosecutor, a rising Republican star who had served in several White House posts before being named U.S. attorney in Miami by President George W. Bush. Instead of meeting at the prosecutor’s Miami headquarters, the two men — both with professional roots in the prestigious Washington law firm of Kirkland & Ellis — convened at the Marriott in West Palm Beach, about 70 miles away. For Lefkowitz,...

    Incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith won her closely-watched runoff election Tuesday night in Mississippi, becoming the first woman elected to represent the state in the upper house of Congress. Despite having made a series of controversial statements, Hyde-Smith successfully fended off a serious challenge from Democrat Mike Espy in a deep-red state President Trump won by 18 points. The victory by Hyde-Smith also means there will be 24 women in the Senate next year, setting a new record. Twenty-three women now serve in the Senate. Hyde-Smith, a cattle farmer, had served as the state's senator for seven months after...
  • Democrats Highlight Kamala Harris’s Race As Her Removal From Judiciary Committee Appears Likely

    Liberals are preparing for Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris’s possible expulsion from the Senate Judiciary Committee by highlighting she is a black woman. In the event that Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith wins the Mississippi runoff election on Nov. 27, the makeup of the Senate Judiciary Committee will shift in favor of the GOP, with a seat currently held by a Democrat flipping red. Consequently, Harris, the most junior Democratic member of the committee, will likely be squeezed out. “Not only would it be unconscionable to remove the only African American woman from the committee, but Senator Harris also is the most...

    “The Morning Joe’ co-hosts made it official during an intimate Saturday ceremony at the National Archives, in front of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, officiated by Rep. Elijah Cummings,” the publication said. It noted that this is the first time anyone got married in the U.S. National Archives, which was closed to the public Saturday night. It looks like a fancy event indeed. The longtime MSNBC colleagues later enjoyed “caesar salads, acorn squash veloute, and red wine poached eggs, followed by joue de boeuf, sautéed trout, roasted chicken breast, and gnocci Parisienne.

    The San Ysidro port of entry, among the largest border crossings between San Diego and Tijuana, was shut down by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents Sunday after hundreds of caravan migrants appeared to have attempted to breach a U.S.-Mexico border fence. CBP officials closed traffic roads moving in both directors and pedestrian walkways at the port of entry. An Associated Press reporter said tear gas was fired at the migrants from inside the U.S. In one video shared by ITV reporter Emma Murphy, migrants are heard shouting “yes we can” as they rush the entry point.

    Authorities clashed with groups that are believed to be from the Central American migrant caravan Sunday after a group estimated to be in the hundreds stormed a US port of entry. Migrants walked from a makeshift shelter in Tijuana, Mexico to head to San Ysidro, the largest port of entry on the southern US border to confront border authorities and make asylum claims.The confrontation comes less than a day after President Donald Trump tweeted that the United States will no longer allow asylum-seekers to enter the country until their claims are approved by a judge.

    Is this another case of fake news or is the incoming left-wing populist government simply trying to play hardball with Señor Trump? Hours after the Washington Post reported that a supposed deal had been met to keep the Central American migrant caravan in Mexico as the United States sorts through asylum applications, Mexico's incoming foreign minister denied that any agreement had been reached and that conversations are still continuing. According to the BBC, "Marcelo Ebrard denied reaching an agreement which would see asylum seekers waiting in Mexico while their claims were processed in US courts." Likewise, the man who will serve in president-elect...

    Last night, Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents and a CBP pilot had rocks thrown at them when they tried to arrest a subject who claimed to have been part of the migrant caravans. On Friday night, at approximately 5:45 p.m., Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents discovered footprints from a subject who had illegally crossed from Mexico into the United States just east of the Andrade, Calif. port of entry. Agents radioed for a CBP Air and Marine helicopter to assist and it responded a short time later. The agents tracked the suspect for almost a mile until he was encountered...

    The Washington Post reports that President Donald Trump has reached a deal with the Mexican government to keep the migrant caravan, composed of thousands of Central American asylum seekers, within Mexico as the United States' court system processes refugee applications. The deal known as "Remain in Mexico", would "break with long-standing asylum rules and place a formidable barrier in the path of Central American migrants attempting to reach the United States and escape poverty and violence. By reaching the accord, the Trump administration has also overcome Mexico’s historic reticence to deepen cooperation with the United States on an issue widely...
