    It’s official: Christine Blasey Ford will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday regarding her allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh attempted to rape her when they were teenagers. Ford committed to testify after she and her lawyers reached a deal with Committee aides on Sunday. Some details still need to be resolved ahead of the hearing, Ford’s lawyers said, but nothing that would prevent her from testifying. Kavanaugh, who has repeatedly denied Ford’s accusation, will also testify this week. Ford’s public testimony will come just 11 days after she came forward with her allegation and upended what...

    The woman who accused Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault back when they were in high school wants a law enforcement investigation of the incident before testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to her lawyer who appeared on CNN Tuesday night.Kavanaugh is expected to testify Monday. “Any talk of a hearing on Monday frankly is premature because she just came forward with these allegations 48 hours ago. And since that time, she has been dealing with hate mail, harassment, death threats. So she’s been spending her time trying to figure out how to put her life...

    According to The Hill, Bill Priestap, the assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, and Michael Steinbach, the former head of the FBI’s national security division, will testify shortly after the release of the IG report.The third witness is John Giacalone who preceded Steinbach as the bureau’s top national security official and oversaw the first seven months of the Clinton probe. Bill Priestap was the FBI official who changed the wording in the James Comey July 2016 speech to remove the word “President” and replace it with “another senior government official” to hide this fact from the American public.

Mueller III, the special counsel investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. “I’m looking forward to it,” Mr. Trump said of talking to Mr. Mueller, ending months of speculation over whether he would submit to questions from the special counsel, who is also believed to be looking into whether the president sought to thwart the inquiry. Mr. Trump spoke with reporters in the doorway of his chief of staff’s office, an impromptu news conference before he departed for the World Economic...

    Susan Rice, former President Obama's national security adviser, dodged a question Tuesday on her willingness to testify before Congress over reports that she sought several times to "unmask" the identities of U.S. persons in intelligence reports linked to President Trump's transition and campaign. "[Sen.] Rand Paul is suggesting that you be subpoenaed to testify," MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell said to Rice. "Would you be willing to go to Capitol Hill?" "Andrea, let's see what comes. I'm not going to sit here and prejudge," Rice responded. Rice then shifted the conversation from a possible subpoena to discuss the ongoing investigations into...

    FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before the House Oversight Committee on Monday despite receiving an invitation to testify about the bureau's reluctance to disclose thousands of pages of evidence compiled in its year-long investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email use. Rep. Elijah Cummings, the committee's top Democrat, said Comey had declined to appear at the hearing because he had "already bent over backwards" to explain the FBI's decision-making in the Clinton email case. But Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the Oversight Committee, disputed the suggestion that he had even invited Comey, noting he had discussed specific points of...

The motion for permission to depose Clinton and two others was submitted to...

    Call it conspiracy theory, coincidence or just bad luck, but any time someone is in a position to bring down Hillary Clinton by testifying they wind up dead. In fact, there’s a long history of Clinton-related body counts, with scores of people dying under mysterious circumstances. Perhaps the most notable is Vince Foster. Foster was a partner at Clinton’s law firm and knew the inner workings of the Clinton Machine. Police ruled that death a suicide, though it is often noted that Foster may have been suicided. Now, another official has found himself on the wrong end of the Clintons....

    Ashe was due in court Monday with his Chinese businessman co-defendant Ng Lap Seng, who is charged with smuggling $4.5 million into the US since 2013 and lying that it was to buy art and casino chips. Ng was identified in a 1998 Senate report as the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally funneled through an Arkansas restaurant owner, Charlie Trie, to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration. (Ng was not charged with any crime.) Ng and Trie had visited the White House several times for Democratic fund-raising events and were photographed with then-President Bill Clinton...

    Sen. Tom Cotton accepted the challenge, but President Obama’s speechwriter and high-ranking foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes ducked out of a hearing Tuesday where he was to explain whether he misled the country in pushing the Iran nuclear deal. Members of Congress had been eager to prod Mr. Rhodes over misrepresentations, but the White House had seemed skeptical, saying lawmakers should poke one of their own, Mr. Cotton, an Arkansas Republican that Mr. Obama’s aides say has been misleading.

    Conservative commentators are up in arms over the State Department’s decision to deny a visa to a Catholic nun who was part of an Iraqi delegation supposed to testify before Congress about Islamic State (ISIS) atrocities. The US consulate in Erbil rejected the visitor visa application of Sister Diana Momeka earlier this week, saying she was “not able to demonstrate that [her] intended activities in the United States would be consistent with the classification of the visa.” However, visas were given to all the other members of the delegation scheduled to speak in Washington about the Islamic State’s persecution of...
