    Attorney General Jeff Sessionsís job security is in question after taking withering fire from fellow Republicans this week, including from two prominent House conservatives who called on him to resign. Two leaders of the House Freedom Caucus, Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), called on Sessions to step aside in an op-ed Friday, charging he has lost control of the Department of Justice and the FBI. Sessions has also come under criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike for his decision to rescind the Obama-era Cole memo, which gave states the space to legalize marijuana without fear of federal...

After being badly beaten up "by his exercise machine," he is suing for his injuries. Here's exactly how it happened (unless it happened a completely different way): "The TheraBand was mounted to a sturdy object in his bathroom," according to the lawsuit. "While in use, the TheraBand broke or slipped out of Mr. Reid's hand, causing him to spin around and strike his face on a cabinet." According to the document, Reid...

    Saddam Hussein was beaten up during questioning after he made an obscene remark about Shia Muslims, a source close to the investigation has claimed. The former dictator is being questioned by investigative judges before his trial resumes on November 28.

Two of the court's clerks stopped taking notes and attacked Saddam, pummeling him with blows. The source claimed Saddam's American guards were...
