    Carter Page, the energy consultant and Trump advisor, is finally doing what needs to be done: He's suing the Democratic National Committee. According to Fox News: Former Trump campaign official Carter Page announced on Monday a defamation lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) over the salacious dossier that claims he has ties to Russia. Page is also suing Perkins Coie and its partners, a law firm that represented Hillary Clinton’s campaign and hired Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that hired former British spy Christopher Steele who compiled the unverified dossier concerning Trump, his associates, and Russia. Page...

And Iím just trying to get some justice," he said. Page's lawsuit is against both the DNC and its law firm, Perkins Coie,...

    In a motion to dismiss a new lawsuit accusing President Donald Trumpís campaign team of illegally conspiring with Russian agents to disseminate stolen emails during the election, Trump campaign lawyers have tried out a new defense: free speech. The lawsuit, filed last month by two donors and one former employee of the Democratic National Committee, alleges that the Trump campaign, along with former Trump adviser Roger Stone, worked with Russia and WikiLeaks to publish hacked DNC emails, thereby violating their privacy. But the Trump campaignórepresented by Jeffrey Baltruzak, Michael A. Carvin, Nikki L. McArthur, and Vivek Suri, all of the...

    Sen. Jeff Merkley lost his bid to delay the Senateís final vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after a federal judge ruled Friday that he had waited too long to sue. Mr. Merkley had sued last week claiming that the president and Senate Republicans were violating the Constitution by denying him the chance to properly give vet Judge Kavanaughís nomination. He said the Constitution tasks senators with giving ďadvice and consentĒ on presidential picks, and heís unable to carry that duty out without seeing more documents from the judgeís past.

There is no office where a person can go to get back his or her good name after a lifetime of effort and achievement is destroyed in a moment by unsubstantiated accusations.

    Sen. Jeff Merkley asked a court Thursday afternoon to quickly step in and delay the Senate from voting on this weekend on Brett Kavanaughís nomination to the Supreme Court. Mr. Merkley has filed a long-shot lawsuit arguing President Trump has violated the Constitution by withholding documents from Judge Kavanaughís past, denying senators the ability to make an informed decision on the nomination. That, he says, violates the Constitutionís demand that the Senate give ďadvice and consentĒ on nominations. The Oregon Democrat asked for a hearing Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, just before the Senate is expected to hold a final...

    A federal judge in Manhattan on Wednesday turned down a request for a temporary restraining order that would have stopped the Trump administrationís plan to send test messages to more than 200 million cellphones later in the day. Judge Katherine Polk Failla rejected arguments from lawyers representing people who objected because they believed that the government should not be able to control what messages Americans receive on their devices. At a news conference outside the courthouse after the decision, plaintiff Liane Nikitivich said she was ďnot sure how terrorism is defined and who will be found to be a terroristĒ...

    WASHINGTON- With Brett Kavanaughís nomination in limbo, a shorthanded Supreme Court appeared evenly split Monday over a potential habitat for an endangered frog in the first arguments of the new term. The arguments and the appearance of the eight justices on the bench Ė an empty place on the far right where a ninth would sit Ė underscored the unusual environment in which the high court began its new term. Republicans had hoped to have Kavanaugh confirmed in time for Mondayís session, an addition that would cement conservative control of the court. But the vote on Kavanaughís nomination has been...

    A federal judge ruled Friday that over 200 Democratic representatives and senators can sue President Trump over claims he violated the emoluments clause of the Constitution regarding his businesses with foreign governments. The clause states that an elected official cannot accept ďany present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.Ē Democrats claim Trump is violating the clause whenever his hotels or golf courses receive payments from foreign governments because Trump still owns his stakes in them. ď[T]he Court finds that the plaintiffs have standing to sue the President for allegedly violating the...

    A federal district judge in Washington ruled on Friday that a group of nearly 200 Democratic senators and representatives have legal standing to sue President Donald Trump to prove he violated the U.S. Constitutionís emoluments provision banning the acceptance of gifts from foreign and domestic interests. The U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan found that lawmakers have adequately shown that theyíve suffered harm from the presidentís alleged violation of the emoluments clause, which bans benefits from foreign governments unless a majority of both houses of Congress consent.
