    President Donald Trump‘s 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. That’s right, the same Conway who is married to counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway and regularly trolls the president on Twitter. “President Trump’s installation of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general of the United States after forcing the resignation of Jeff Sessions is unconstitutional,” they wrote. “It’s illegal. And it means that anything Mr. Whitaker does, or tries to do, in that position is invalid.”

    WASHINGTON (AP) — As Washington came to grips with its new divided reality, President Donald Trump on Wednesday reveled in his party’s Senate victories, mocked members of his own party who lost after not seeking his support and even suggested he may be able to govern more effectively after losing a chamber of Congress.Trump faces the prospect, starting early next year, of endless investigations after Democrats formally take control of the House, along with stymied policy efforts and fresh questions about the resilience of his unorthodox political coalition. 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...

    For nearly as long as FBI special counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating Russian election meddling, activists have been planning mass protests. Hundreds of protests across the US, organized by MoveOn and other progressive groups, are planned to begin if Trump fires Mueller or deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, who appointed him. They would also begin if the president prevents the investigation from being “conducted freely,” MoveOn says. Today, those fears may have been realized when Trump asked attorney general Jeff Sessions for his resignation. Sessions, who had recused himself from the investigation, will be replaced by Matt Whitaker, a...

    Politico reported Wednesday that the president’s son is expecting to be indicted. According to the report, Donald Trump Jr. “has told friends in recent weeks that he believes he could be indicted…” Trump Jr. has been under intense scrutiny ever since it was revealed that he attended a meeting in 2016 with Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in New York City. The meeting was purportedly held so that Veselnitskaya could provide opposition information on then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

But the offer, which Papadopoulos extended this week, is not a campaign contribution or a bribery attempt. Instead, the former Trump campaign aide wants lawmakers to inspect a stack of $100 bills he was given during a peculiar meeting he had in a hotel room in Israel in July 2017, just days before he was arrested by the FBI. “I’m actually trying to bring that money back somehow so that Congress can investigate it because I am...

    House conservatives are fuming over the format of an upcoming interview with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, saying the closed-door setup will hinder transparency. Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), both key figures in the ultra-conservative Freedom Caucus, have criticized the logistics of Wednesday's planned sit-down with Rosenstein which will be limited to the top Republicans and Democrats on the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees and a court reporter. “Why are we continuing to do hearings in private where we don’t have press or the American people to be the arbiter of what is fair...
