    Could the Democrats' search for a candidate to take on Donald Trump lead them to North Carolina? Gov. Roy Cooper made it sound as though he thinks he'd be a sought-after candidate — at some point, anyway — during a Politico event at Duke University on Thursday. Cooper also offered a take or two distancing himself from the Trump administration. When the event moderator asked Cooper which Democratic candidates should run for the presidency, Cooper replied, "Being the governor of a swing state, I’m sure I'll get some calls."

    As you no doubt know, Anderson Cooper held an interview with alleged Trump paramour Stormy Daniels. The questions he asked were prurient: Stephanie Clifford: I realized exactly what I'd gotten myself into. And I was like, "Ugh, here we go." (laugh) And I just felt like maybe-- (laugh) it was sort of-- I had it coming for making a bad decision for going to someone's room alone and I just heard the voice in my head, “well, you put yourself in a bad situation and bad things happen, so you deserve this.”Anderson Cooper: And you had sex with him.Stephanie Clifford: Yes.Anderson Cooper: You were...

A source involved in the taping said it will air "on a future episode." A "60 Minutes" spokesman declined to comment. Cooper interviewed Clifford's lawyer Michael Avenatti on CNN on Wednesday night.

    allandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper, who was removed from office Friday after being snared in an FBI sting, solicited illegal campaign contributions not only for herself but for two political allies, court documents say. Gov. Rick Scott suspended Cooper on Friday, a day after she was arrested and accused of accepting contributions funneled through Alan Koslow, a once prominent attorney who has since been disbarred after a conviction on federal charges. In August 2012, undercover agents handed Koslow a Dunkin’ Donuts bag filled with $8,000 in cash – all in $100 bills, investigators said in court records.

    The American Constitution is an outdated, malfunctioning piece of junk — and it's only getting worse. When written, the Constitution made a morally hideous compromise with slavery that took a war and 750,000 lives to make right. And while its basic structure sort of worked for awhile in the 20th century, the Constitution is now falling prey to the same defects that has toppled every other similar governing document the world over.

    The Russian revolution was the most utopian left-wing project in history, and it was a cataclysmic disaster. When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, many Western observers concluded that the old Marxist dream was dead forever. But they spoke too soon. History is not over, and with the absence of any Soviet competition, Western capitalist countries — and especially the United States — have become hideously unequal, misery-ridden, and economically stagnant. In many ways, socialists in the early 21st century stand just about where they were in the early 20th century: politically marginalized, but leveling an economic critique that becomes...

    One of Britain’s most famous transgender personalities is swapping genders for the third time in eight years. Brad Cooper became the U.K.’s youngest person to undergo a gender swap at only 15 years old, when he claimed he believed he was a girl stuck in a boy’s body. Doctors began pumping Brad’s body full of hormone therapy to stop puberty and trigger breast growth, sparking a widespread debate on whether 15 was too young for a person to make such a life-altering medical decision. Turns out that it just might be. According to a profile in the U.K. Mirror, the...

    For instance, a ruling declassified this month by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) chronicles nearly 10 pages listing hundreds of violations of the FBI’s privacy-protecting minimization rules that occurred on Comey’s watch. The behavior the FBI admitted to a FISA judge just last month ranged from illegally sharing raw intelligence with unauthorized third parties to accessing intercepted attorney-client privileged communications without proper oversight the bureau promised was in place years ago.

Otto Reich, President Reagan’s ambassador to Venezuela who maintained high-level government positions during the tenure of both President George H.W. Bush and President George Bush.

    CNN anchor Anderson Cooper weighed in on Kathy Griffin’s now-famous photograph in which she posed with a fake, bloodied, decapitated head of President Donald Trump, saying the photo was “disgusting” and “inappropriate.” “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in,” the Anderson Cooper 360 host wrote on his Twitter account Tuesday evening. “It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.” Cooper and Griffin have co-hosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live since 2007. CNN said in a statement Tuesday that it was “evaluating” Griffin’s future role in the broadcast, but said it had not yet...

    This week, the Media Research Center posted a study of one CNN day showing that the network is obsessed with President Trump and the overwhelming majority of CNN’s experts opining on Trump are highly negative. CNN’s rare allowance of pro-Trump voices often come from commentators they pay to defend Trump. So why insult them when that’s what you pay them to do? On his primetime show AC360 Friday night, Anderson Cooper interrupted one of Jeffrey Lord's defenses of Trump -- saying he doesn't care what Trump tells the Russians -- by saying "if he took a dump on his desk, you...

Chuck Cooper said Thursday he no longer wishes to be considered for the post. His withdrawal leaves George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, as the only remaining finalist. The solicitor general represents the government in cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.
