    WASHINGTON — Speaker Paul D. Ryan on Tuesday called Donald J. Trump’s criticism of a Hispanic-American judge “the textbook definition of a racist comment” and said he “regrets” the remark. But Mr. Ryan also reiterated his support for Mr. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, against Hillary Clinton. “I disavow these comments — I regret those comments that he made,” Mr. Ryan said after announcing a new Republican anti-poverty initiative in Anacostia, an overwhelmingly black neighborhood in Washington. “Claiming a person can’t do their job because of their race is sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment,”...

    Attorney General Eric Holder, long besieged by accusations of corruption and outright felonious behavior, has stated that he may step down in 2014 as the nation’s top alleged law enforcer. In an article with the New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin, Holder admitted that he intends to stay “well into” 2014, but in doing so, has once again fueled speculation that the Attorney General will be stepping down by year’s end. The Justice Department has worked to downplay the rumors and Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted, “Actually, most he said was he planned to stay well into ’14.” However, it seems...

    After an internal debate, the Obama administration has decided to tell American commercial airlines to comply with China's demands to be notified of any flights through a broad swath of international airspace that it has claimed as an air defense zone, officials said Friday. Even as the United States continued to send military planes into the zone in defiance of China's declaration, officials said they expected civilian planes to go along with Beijing's new demands out of an abundance of caution. Officials said they were worried about an accident or unintended confrontation that could endanger civilian passengers. The administration’s decision...

    If there are material changes in that conference report different from this bill that adversely affect the agreement, I reserve the right to vote against the next cloture vote," he said. "Let me repeat it, I reserve the right to vote against the next cloture vote, if there are material changes to this agreement in the conference report. And I will vote against it if that is the case." Sounds like cold feet. Nelson might not like the heat he's feeling since announcing his deal.
