    The Senate Judiciary Committee has reportedly reached a tentative agreement for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, to testify next week. The deal, struck hours after Ford's lawyer responded to an early afternoon deadline saying that she would testify before the panel, would have her testify on Thursday, according to multiple reports. The person briefed on talks between the Judiciary Committee and Ford's lawyers told the AP that talks would continue into Sunday.

    Fox News was told that the Republican senators want an answer “by the end of the day.” In a statement released Friday evening, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley extended the deadline for a response to 10 p.m. If there's no response, or a rejection of the offer, Grassley said in a statement, the committe may set a vote on Kavanaugh's nomination for Monday. “I’m extending the deadline for response yet again to 10 o’clock this evening," Grassley said. "I’m providing a notice of a vote to occur Monday in the event that Dr. Ford’s attorneys don’t respond or Dr....

    The Senate Judiciary Committee is postponing a high-stakes hearing set for early next week on the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The committee announced on Friday that the Monday hearing — where both Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, had been invited to speak — was being called off. Instead, Grassley said in a statement Friday that he is giving Ford’s lawyers until 10 p.m. on Friday to respond to the GOP request for her to testify on Wednesday. If they do not, or if Ford declines to testify, Grassley said the Judiciary Committee will...

The documents were previously withheld by Attorney General Eric Holder, who was voted in civil and criminal contempt of Congress for refusing to turn them over. “The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law. This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions released in...

    The Democratic rebuttal memo to the Republican House Intelligence Committee memo on alleged government surveillance abuses was released Saturday afternoon. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., acknowledged its release at his appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference, at about 4 p.m. "It's just posted," he told American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp, quipping that the committee website was probably already crashing due to high traffic. Democrats say their memo was written as a rebuttal to provide greater context to a Republican memo that was released earlier this month, which outlines abuses by the FBI and the Justice Department...

The committee has been tasked with considering the slew of nominees from the Trump administration, many of which have been controversial. Sen.

Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is scheduled to meet with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Thursday as part of the negotiations. A spokesman for the department told The Hill earlier in the week that it had requested that the subpoenas be placed on hold during the discussions....

    Political legend Roger Stone appeared before the House Intelligence Committee today during a closed hearing intended to tackle the allegations of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, but rather than Roger standing trial, he flipped the script in proper Stonean fashion and put the entire committee itself on trial. In an exclusive interview, a TGP sat down with Mr. Stone and discussed some of the finer details of the hearing and also touched briefly on the Alabama senate race, the slippery, snakelike DNC operative John Podesta, and the much gossiped about Guccifer 2.0. What follows is a penetrating looks at...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday announced the 16-member committee that will review all "symbols of hate" on city property over the next three months. Announced in the wake of violence waged by white nationalists at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last month, the group is tasked with establishing guidelines for how to assess statues and monuments "seen as oppressive and inconsistent with the values of New York City." The group will also make specific recommendations for "a select few items," according to City Hall. This number undoubtedly includes the statue of Christopher Columbus in Columbus Circle, which Mayor de...
