    The Sacramento Bee ^ | December 11th, 2018 | BY DALE KASLER AND KATE IRBY
    It all started when California farmer John Duarte plowed a wheat field in Tehama County, about two hours north of Sacramento, and wound up paying a $1.1 million fine to the federal government for his efforts. On Tuesday, Duarte, who was embraced by conservatives nationwide as a victim of government over-reach, got vindication of sorts. In a victory for farmers and land developers throughout the West, the Trump administration announced a broad rollback of rules designed to protect wetlands and other small bodies of water. The decision means regulations put in place in 2015 by the Obama administration will fall...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) offered his thoughts on who should replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions during an interview with Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House. I think your cabinet needs to have people in it who agree with you, Paul said when asked if he was happy about Sessions departure. I think for a long time Jeff Sessions hasnt really been working for what the president would like him to do. I also think that there are some big reforms that we need of our justice and our intelligence agencies, and I think justice can be part of...

    A jury convicted a woman on Wednesday who was arrested during a congressional hearing in January after laughing at the claim that now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions had a record of treating Americans equally. Desiree Fairooz, an activist associated with the organization Code Pink, was found guilty on two counts: one for engaging in disorderly or disruptive conduct with the intent to disrupt congressional proceedings and a separate count for parading, demonstrating or picketing. Tighe Barry and Lenny Bianchi, who pretended to be KKK members supporting Sessions and were tried alongside Fairooz, were convicted on two of three charges. The jury...

    President Donald Trumps pick for interim Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker, has been met with harsh opposition in the form of a New York Times op-ed co-authored by none other than George Conway. Thats right, the same Conway who is married to counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway and regularly trolls the president on Twitter. President Trumps installation of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general of the United States after forcing the resignation of Jeff Sessions is unconstitutional, they wrote. Its illegal. And it means that anything Mr. Whitaker does, or tries to do, in that position is invalid.

Still, he celebrated Republicans success in retaining the Senate and seemed to...

    Upon learning the bombshell news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was out on Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer quickly warned of a constitutional crisis. A new attorney general must not interfere with the investigation from special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign, the New York Democrat warned. Schumer was handed a paper informing him of the Sessions news during a press conference and he told reporters that any tampering the Mueller probe would amount to a "constitutional crisis." "Protecting Mueller and his investigation is paramount," he said it...

Three decades later, Mr. Sessions, now a veteran Alabama senator, is on the verge of becoming the nations top law-enforcement official, after President-elect Donald Trump tapped him on Friday to be attorney general
