    The Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee told the Supreme Court it needs the grand jury materials redacted in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report to decide whether to impeach Trump over his alleged obstruction of the Russia investigation. Douglas Letter, the Democratic committee's top lawyer, filed a 33-page motion on Monday opposing a Justice Department effort that seeks to have the nation's highest court block the release of the documents. Democrats insist they need the information quickly because the House Judiciary Committee’s “impeachment investigation related to obstruction of justice pertaining to the Russia investigation is ongoing.” “The Mueller Report grand-jury material remains...

    Harris County Commissioners Court on Tuesday voted to spend up to $12 million for an expected uptick in requests for mail-in ballots in the July primary runoff and November general election from voters concerned about contracting the novel coronavirus at polling places. The three Democrats on the five-member court voted to give County Clerk Diane Trautman enough to send a mail-in ballot to every registered voter in the county over the objections of the two Republican members who said the clerk failed to justify the expense. ...Attorney General Ken Paxton earlier this month said fear of the coronavirus is not...

    Former candidate for Florida governor Andrew Gillum, who was named in a police report Friday saying he was “inebriated” and initially unresponsive in a hotel room where investigators found baggies of suspected crystal methamphetamine, announced Sunday that he will enter rehab and step back from politics for the time being. "After conversation with my family and deep reflection, I have made the decision to seek help, guidance and enter a rehabilitation facility at this time. This has been a wake-up call for me.

    WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — When the lifeless body of a 26-year-old man was found two years ago in the apartment of Ed Buck, a small-time Democratic donor and political activist, the authorities described it as an accidental overdose. Then, in January, a 55-year-old fashion consultant died in Mr. Buck’s home in exactly the same way. Once again, he faced no charges. On Tuesday, after a third man survived a methamphetamine overdose in the apartment, Mr. Buck was finally arrested and hauled away in the back of a police car. The sordid facts — and Mr. Buck’s seeming double life —...

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) took aim at GOP Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) after the lawmaker said a weekend uptick in violence in the city proved that “gun control doesn’t work.” “60% of illegal firearms recovered in Chicago come from outside IL — mostly from states dominated by coward Republicans like you who refuse to enact commonsense gun legislation,” Lightfoot tweeted late Monday. “Keep our name out of your mouth.” Cruz Tweet: Gun control doesn’t work. Look at Chicago. Disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer. Stopping violent criminals—prosecuting & getting them off the street—BEFORE they commit more violent crimes is...

    SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Joe Biden pledged to erect an "absolute wall" between the presidency and his family's business dealings and said he has never discussed business with relatives, following an event here on Wednesday. "I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or with anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses. Period," he said. "And what I will do is the same thing we did in our administration. There will be an absolute wall between personal and private [business interests] and the government. There wasn’t any hint of scandal at all when we were there. And...

    Union bosses, closely tied to the Democrat Party, say American union workers sticking with President Trump in 2020 and his economic nationalist agenda is “a serious problem” for them. A report by the Wall Street Journal reveals how union bosses and Democrats are looking to peel off Trump’s support from American union workers who back his agenda, where most recently he has demanded multinational corporations move their production in China to the U.S. The Journal reports: “It’s a serious problem for us,” said Alan Netland, president of the North East Area Labor Council in Duluth, Minn., which represents 40,000 union...

    Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier, had previously slammed criminalizing sex with teen girls as a “cultural aberration,” according to a reporter who recalled the convicted pedophile’s comments a year before his apparent suicide. Epstein was “unapologetic” and defiant to the end in his beliefs on men sleeping with underage girls, according to New York Times reporter James Stewart. “He said that criminalizing sex with teenage girls was a cultural aberration and that at times in history it was perfectly acceptable,” Stewart reported in the Times on Monday.

    Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló — whose administration has been roiled by a corruption probe – has apologized for calling former City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito a “whore” and telling a federal board overseeing the island’s finances to “go f— yourself.” Rosselló made the comments in leaked text messages published by local newspaper Primera Hora after the FBI arrested former top officials in his government on corruption charges. In one private chat, he used the Spanish word for “whore” to describe Mark-Viverito – and in another told the Fiscal Oversight Board established by Congress to oversee the territory’s finances to...

    The arrest of the apparent billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein at a New Jersey airport on Saturday on federal charges for crimes he was accused of during the Bush administration should not be surprising to anyone who has followed the news carefully. He may have escaped in 2008 with a ludicrous one-year stint in a county jail that he was allowed to leave six days a week, but his name has never quite been out of the headlines. Between 2008 and 2015 Epstein reportedly settled more than a dozen lawsuits from Jane Does alleging sexual assault; the youngest of his alleged...
